    Petra has helped me out in caring for my pets for the last several years (1 dog and 2 cats). My dog is physically disabled and takes awhile to trust new people. When first meeting her, Petra was kindly willing to follow all my new dog parent instructions, and because of her gentle patience and understanding of what my dog needed, my dog absolutely loves Petra. My dog lets Petra pick her up and carry her, which is not something she lets many people do.

    Petra has also been highly responsive in making sure my cat had immediate care when she found him significantly ill during a daily check-in while I was out of town. Without her willingness to go the extra steps for my cat he would have not made it. I recommend her to anyone looking for care for their pets. And if there are any questions or concerns with employees I recommend you contact Petra directly as she is highly responsive.

    My husband and I were continuously grateful that we found Flying Dog Pet Care when we lived in Seattle. Petra is not only extremely knowledgeable about dogs, but cares deeply for each one in her care. Our dog ADORED her, and probably had a more active social life than we ever did in Seattle since she would have playdates with her dog buddies every day.

    Something else that is unique to Flying Dog Pet Care is the ease for pet owners. Petra would come to our apartment to pick up our black lab and bring her back after playtime. We valued this so much, considering that we are a one-car family with pretty sporadic schedules.

    This is the best pet care you can get, folks - especially if you have a highly energetic pup who lives in an apartment!

    Beren was four months old when I first contacted Petra. I was hesitant to entrust my puppy to a stranger (yikes!) but was also in desperate need of assistance and encouraged by a neighbor's enthusiastic referral. Petra accommodated my ever-shifting schedule, worked with me to provide Beren appropriate training and socialization, and was my goto person whenever I traveled out of town. It's been almost four years now. She is consistent, reliable, responsible, has a deep understanding of what makes dogs tick, and Beren loves her. I've joked (more than half seriously), that if something untoward were ever to happen to me, then I was leaving Beren to her. I'm not so sure what she thinks of that--I have to think other of her clients feel the same way and have said as much. Regardless, it illustrates the strength of this recommendation. You could honestly do no better.

    Petra is wonderful! She has been taking our pup Quincy for walks and group outings to nearby dog parks for the past 8 months. She is a true animal lover, and it shows in the time and care she devotes to Quincy. We know he is always in good hands and having fun when he's with Petra. We'd give 10 stars if we could!

    I don't usually leave a ton of reviews... But I'll leave one for Petra (Flying Dog Pet Care). You are getting so much more than a dog sitter with this business.

    This isn't your typical dog care business in that Petra does personalized and customized care for each dog and each situation. It's not a place where you drop off your dog with dozens of others dogs. It's small groups of dogs, usually no more than four to six, going on hiking and outdoor adventures. Or it's individual walks, if your dog needs that too.

    Petra used to take care of my Aussie, Raggles. He was about four months old when first starting in her care, and needed loads of attention and exercise. Petra took him as if he was her own.

    Until I moved, she took care of him for a full year, every week day plus random weekends when I would travel.

    Petra would pick him up in the morning, then drop him off in the afternoon. The price is standard. The care she gives is exceptional.

    If you want your dog to stay on a leash, she'll keep him on a leash. If you want him/her to get loads of exercise, Petra knows the exact places to go that aren't dog parks where Raggles could run free. If he's got a hurt paw, or something in his eye, Petra's knowledge about dogs is something I always checked with before taking him to the vet. She's saved me loads of vet visits.

    I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Petra's kind heart, both for Raggles and for me! She understood things like Raggles shyness with other dogs and how he sometimes would get scared in big groups. She sent me pictures of him almost every day, was great with payments, and was flexible if I last-minute needed to change my schedule.

    Good vibes, hard worker, great knowledge, and a true love and passion for dogs. I could not ask for more.

    Thank you Petra! I'm so glad I found your website- you changed Raggles and i's lives! And we miss you so much!

    Wow. I wish I could write just how great Petra is in words. You are getting so much more than a dog sitter.

    I'll start with this: I had tried loads of dog sitters. Petra is by far, the number one in the Seattle area.

    Petra takes care of my mini Aussie, Raggles. He is almost 2 years old, and needs loads of attention and love. Petra has basically taken him as her own. When I first got Raggles, he was around 4 months old and Petra would take him for walks and what not. He was just a little puppy. Now she takes him on hikes.

    I work at Boeing all day, and Petra comes to the house and picks him up in the morning, then drops him off in the afternoon. The price is standard. And the care she gives is truly exceptional. If you want him to stay on a leash, she'll keep him on a leash. If you want him to get loads of exercise, Petra knows the exact places to go that aren't dog parks where Raggles can run free. If he's got a hurt paw, or something in his eye, Petra's knowledge about dogs is something I always check with before taking him to the vet. She's saved me loads of vet visits.

    I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Petra's kind heart, both for Raggles and for me! She understands things like Raggles shyness with other dogs and how he sometimes get scared in big groups. She is awesome too- just an overall awesome person to have taking care of your dog. She sends me pictures of him, she's great with payments, and she's understanding if I last-minute need to change my schedule.

    Good vibes, hard worker, great knowledge, and a true love and passion for dogs. I could not ask for more.

    Thank you Petra! I'm so glad I found your website- you have changed Raggles and i's lives!

    Petra is fantastic and provided exactly what I needed! I contacted Flying Dog Pet Care a couple days before leaving town for a New Year's getaway, and she was very accommodating. I have two chihuahuas that have special needs and I have never left them in the care of a stranger. Being new to Seattle, I had no choice but to find a professional pet sitter. I am so glad I found this company. Petra helped me set up a regimen of in home care that worked for us. She came to my home to meet the dogs before I left, and I could tell she was knowledgable, cautious, and was able to interact with my dogs in a way that helped them to feel comfortable. They responded to her really well! That was a minor miracle because my dogs, unfortunately, are not good with new people. While I was away, she fed them, cared for them, administered medication for one of them, and kept me updated through texts. She was extremely communicative and very caring toward my dogs and their nervous personalities. I was extremely anxious about leaving them with someone new, but could not have had a better experience using a professional pet-sitting service for the first time, thanks especially to Petra's animal-loving care. If I ever have to leave Seattle without my dogs again, I will call Flying Dog Pet Care first.

    Petra took amazing care of our to dogs (two Pit mixes) for 3 nights and 4 days.  She send multiple daily updates via text and photos to let us know how our dogs were doing.  This kind of communication was very comforting to us since we had never left our dogs with anyone before.  When we got home the dogs were very relaxed and calm which tells us they were well cared for.  When Petra came back afterwards to pick up her final payment the dogs so excited to see her and you could tell they loved their new best friend!  Petra was very organized, prompt, and professional.  I would heartily recommend her for anyone looking for pet sitting or dog walking.  We definitely plan to us her in the future!

    Petra is the best. She has been walking and dog sitting our our golden retriever for nearly a year and we couldn't be happier. She is terrific: great rates, good service (our pup gets taken to Carkeek park for 1+ hours most days to run and swim), and a super kind and trustworthy person. We very strongly recommend her!

    Petra is a consummate professional and we know our dog son is in the best of care whenever he is on walks or staying with her for the weekend. We trust her and know she is careful, conscientious, and always does the right thing for our feisty (naughty) golden retriever. She takes him on great adventures and loves him just as much as we do. We couldn't be happier that we found her when we moved to Seattle. She comes highly recommended from very picky doggy parents. Thanks, Petra, for all you do!
