Dezi was a tremendous cat-sitter for us while we were gone on vacation. Because of some snafus, we couldn't give her too much advance notice, but she was incredibly accommodating and responsive. The house looked great when we got back, and our kitties were super happy when we returned. We'd hire Dezi again and a heartbeat, and plan on it in the future!

Adaeze was just wonderful! She spent the morning with my 17 month old. From start to finish she was communicative, prompt, considerate, and above all great with the baby. I highly recommend her and hope to have her help again myself.

She's great!!! She sends picture of my cat to me and updates me almost everyday while I'm away so I know she is doing. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter for their pets.

Adaeze deserves a 10-star review. Adaeze is sweet and thoughtful, a trustworthy and compassionate caregiver. Our son is really high-energy and outgoing - he calls her name as she comes in the door, and wants to go on a walk with her immediately. Her flexibility with our child (and with schedules) and ability to play, sooth, comfort, care, and teach is what has me calling her again and again.

Dezi was great with our twins. Helped us out, full-time, for an entire week. Was one of the few sitters whom our kids warmed up to really quickly.

I was very excited about having Adaeze watch my girls. Her application was , and she seemed friendly (although shy) when she got here. She was a little early which was great. She asked for information I forgot to give her, which was definitely a plus. It's pretty rare we get a sitter, so we're not very good at "turnover". She fed them on time and had them in bed at about the right time as we requested. However, before we left, I showed her how to turn on a show (our show collection for them is 100% digital) but stated "if things get bad, let them watch a show." A day later, I took the time to check the logs on the computer and of the 10 hours she watched them, about 7 hours and 20 minutes of that was spent watching television. The hours she worked for us was from 11:00am to 9pm. Bedtime was at 8pm. Each show is about 22 minutes long. This is a list of each time one was started during her stay: 12:17 12:41 (24 min between) 1:08 (27 min between) 1:30 (22 min between) 1:52 (22 min between) 2:14 (22 min between) 2:36 (22 min between) 3:16 (40 min between) 3:38 (22 min between) 4:00 (22 min between) 4:22 (22 min between) 4:45 (23 min between) 5:07 (22 min between) 5:29 (22 min between) 5:51 (22 min between) 6:22 (31 min between) 6:55 (33 min between) 7:18 (23 min between) 7:40 (22 min between) From this information, I see that she spent about 1.5 hours with our kids not watching TV at the very beginning of the day, and watched TV pretty much straight through until bedtime. Even dinner (at about 6:30) appears to have taken about 10 minutes before another was started. I'm saddened that my wife and I's day out of the house required my children to sit in front of the TV for hours and hours on end. They are good, responsible, respectful young girls and this was completely uncalled for. The only word that describes this is "negligence." She gets 2 stars because my children were alive when we returned.

Adaeze did absolutely great with our dog Shadow (8yo Black lab)! Our dog is usually pretty nervous with new sitters, and he takes a few days to settle down. With Adaeze he settled down in less than 1 day, and for us that is great! She sent pictures and text updates on a pretty frequent basis so I felt real comfortable with everything. Dorp off an pick was a snap! I would highly reccomend Adaeze's pet sitting service to anyone!

Adaeze took care of my English Bulldog, Winston, while staying at my house. She treated him like one of her own and sent me pictures and messages to make sure I didn't worry, as it was my first time leaving him with a stranger. She remembered to give him his medication without any issues. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter who will treat your pet like royalty. Thanks for taking such good care of my baby!

I needed a sitter for Friday evenings as I have a gig on the radio each Friday evening for a few hours. Adaeze confirmed with me early Friday afternoon for her 5:30pm start time. She was reliable, punctual, and overall very pleasant. It did not take too long for my 4.5 year old to warm up to her--which is something I find very important in his babysitters. Needless to say, he thoroughly enjoyed her company and was happy to have someone who wanted to watch the same Lego movie with him back to back. LOL! I would recommend Adaeze with no hesitation!

Adaeze (or Dezi as we affectionately call her) is possibly the best babysitter we have ever had. She has been watching my 2.5 year old son regularly for the past 6 months. She is always on time, extremely reliable, pleasant, knowledgeable, hardworking, and willing to do anything to make sure he's happy and content. I am very picky with who takes care of my son (as all moms are!) but I have no worries when Dezi is there. I can breathe easy that he is safe, happy, and very well taken care of. She takes extra time to play and read to him even though 2 years can be very demanding and need a lot of attention. She is mature and responsible and always makes great decisions that I am very impressed with. She always gives him what he needs. He totally loves her and even asks for her when she's not there. I highly recommend Dezi as a babysitter. Anyone would be lucky to have her!!

When I look at my dogs and how they behave towards anybody outside of the family I know they're not too easy, especially around other dogs. They're both old and set in their ways. I do however need a dog sitter on occasion and I never would have imagined to find one as awesome as Adaeze. We have moved around the country a lot and have seen the worst and so, unfortunately, have our dogs. People mostly don't treat dogs like family members and when we reunite that's something I will be able to tell. It's totally different when my dogs come home from this sitter. I wouldn't want to change what I get here for anything. This is probably the best sitter I could ever imagine having. She is loving, caring and makes my puppies happy to stay there. I'm so glad we found her. - Jeannette E. (dog mum)

Adaeze is the best pet sitter I have ever used. She took care of my 2 yr old boxer for two weeks. My dog has epilepsy and she handled and took the best care of my dog. I was updated everyday how is my dog doing and received pictures as well. Adaeze is very kind and responsible young lady. Thank you Adaeze for taking such a good care of my four legged child! ~Lucia
