I DO NOT recommend this people at all!!!! They are not responsable, my dogs defecated and pee all over the carpet. They were house trained!!! Which means that they were not walking them as they supposed to.
When we came home there was a HUGE poop stain over half of the carpet. We called them about this situation and they didnt return our calls. I called to get my keys back and because my husband got orders to go PCS to Germany, and I moved to grandmas (in the same apartment complex) they didnt want to return the keys!!!
This company is a pain in the a.....from start to finish. Beware!

My experience with these folks has been exceptional. I've got a LARGE dog, and the ownership/management of ARF! took the time and effort to ensure that I had a sitter that was well-suited to care for him. I've been using ARF! for about a year now, and I've never, ever had an issue. I travel a lot for work, and I always feel confident that my dog will be taken care of. It's better than leaving him at a kennel, and ARF! is licensed/bonded/insured, so I have peace of mind. ARF! is highly recommended in my book!

I could not believe what I just read from the first post! After the bad spelling and poor english, I still dont believe it! I have been using ARF Pet Care since 2008, and I am with you Bill! I have 3 LARGE dogs that are well taken care of! When I go out of town, or just need them to come over during a long day at work, I have no worries that the sitter is taking care of my babies! My dogs are well trained and house broken, but any dog will have accidents. I feel that Miriam and Adam did not get the proper amount of visits from a sitter, or if the real story was told, I imagine the dog(s) might have gotten sick while they were gone. ARF Pet Care is truly a godsend for us! I would highly, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. The management and staff have gone out of their way to care for my Cloe and Zoey! You will not find another company like ARF!!!

Ditto....Nothing but good experiences with Arf here! Not sure what the deal was with the first post. Arf folks actually clean up after my cat when it gets sick (which is often, actually)...

I dont understand what my english has to do with my grammar first of all. I fist language is spanish not english, but if it bothers you so much try and learn spanish or any other language before talking. About being educated I have my BS in Biology and I am in Veterinary School right now, so that's another ignorant comment of your part.
Because you had a wonderful experience with this company doesnt mean that everybody else have to feel the same way. We had a bad experience with them and we dont recommend them. For all I care you can be an employee of Arf Pet Care. So, be a little bit more mature about this!

Please read my other post....my first language is NOT english, why dont you learn another language and then you can start talking about other peoples mistake. I went to college and I have my BS in Biology and I am in Veterinary School, what about you? I dont understand what my english has to do with my review, but there we can see how ignorant are you. Again, because you had a good experience with them doesnt mean that we did. We were out on vacations and we paid them 312 for a week to take care of our dogs. We do take proper care of our dogs...there is a lot of people that disagree with you check other reviews posted in other websites, I guess you are going to find something on their post to attack them. Lol. For all I care you can be an employee of Arf Pet care. Now, I remember you!! You posted something in the other pet review website and critize my picture too. Lol. Funny as soon as people started telling you things you ereased your post. Whatever!!! You are the military wife that loves your dogs that you walk them 4 times a day, sure you can walked them 4 times a day because you dont have a job!!!! Be mature and stop attacking other people.

We have had great experiances with Arf. Our neighbor turned us on to them, and it is great being able to vacation on a quick weekend and know that your pets are taken care of. Our sitter leaves us notes, and even texted pictures while we were away. thanks Arf.....

Just got back from my dream vacation in Paris, France. Laura took care of my baby, provided updates on her condition, and even watered the plants. This was the best service ever. I am a new home owner and my cat is elderly. Naturally, I was reluctant to leave both my new home and my pet. Laura met with me and my partner, reassured us both, and I trusted her with the keys to my home, and the life of my pet. I could not be happier with the service and the follow-through. I would recommend ARF highly to anyone who needs this type of service, and would not hesitate to use it again. Well done Laura, and thanks for the follow-up call, Susan. 4 stars......
