What Our Dog Sitting Clients are saying



I tried Azabu Pet after I saw that they were ranked first on Pet Sitters Ranking Site.
I had often used people doing Pet Sitting independently but
there is a massive difference in the amount and quality of services with a proper company.
There were so many services that other company’s just don’t offer like the Electronic Records, Webcam, Security Seal…, and I thought to myself it makes total sense for a company like this to rank first!
Also, the response from the management team was so fast and helpful!

For Cats

What Our Cat Sitting Clients are saying:



The whole staff seems to absolutely adore animals.
From the update email I received, the sitter was giving my kitty a lot of love!
When I came home my little kitty was so nice and calm, I could tell that she was really looked after well.
(Azabu Pet) always responds extremely fast. And while they have a lot of Sitter’s on their staff there is no difference between how they look after my little darling which really puts my mind at ease.
Thank you so much!
