I first started using Whiskers to Tails and owner, Marlene Bowers, for pet sitting in 2010 when I moved to the area. On her preliminary visit, Marlene got right down on the floor with my two cats and small dog and I was amazed at her immediate rapport with them. That bond continued and my dog was always quite excited to see her. It is never easy to leave ones pets, but at least with Marlene, I knew they were very well taken care of and that she would spend the time to give them attention – not just feed and water them. Marlene has always been very dependable and when I had an unexpected trip due to a family death, she fit in my pets to her busy schedule. She is easily the most professional pet sitter I have ever used.

We LOVED how you cared for our little guy! Thank you for taking the time to get to know him! He is quite content, very happy and looking well take care of. Everything looked great when we got home! Zeke is missing you and asking when Auntie Marlene can come over again! You did a WONDERFUL job and gave us a carefree vacation. . . . we also really appreciated the [check-up] texts! Thank you SO much!

Whiskers to Tails is the best! Marlene had been caring for our two dogs, Sammi and Roxi, during our times away since early 2006. When we learned she had started her own pet sitting service we didn't hesitate to contact her and sign up. When we recently added a new member to our household (Beau our cat), she took the time to come over and meet him before our trip and enthusiastically welcomed him. We know that our animals are loved and well cared for when we're away. She takes the time to get to know each of their personalities and treats them like they are her own. We would definitely recommend Whiskers to Tails for any pet sitting needs!

I am so thankful for how well Marlene takes care of my tabby, Gracie. I loved all her notes that are left for me each day, and amazingly, Gracie has even let Marlene brush her! It sure is a comfort to know that she is so dependable and does what she says she will do. I look forward to using Whiskers to Tails in the future for my next traveling trips.

My wife works days and I was on second shift when we we decided to adopt an adorable dog we named Barney. . . . Marlene gives Barney a good walk and plays with him in the middle of our day. We get a little report on how things went and it is obvious that Marlene really cares about Barney.He looks out the window waiting for her every day.She varies his walking route and toy selection which he enjoys because he is a very smart little dog. . . .Everyone says what a “good boy” he is. I feel the Barney we have today is the result of his total experiences which Marlene has definitely affected in a positive manner.

A million thank-yous to you all for the wonderful care you gave our boys. We can tell they were very loved and well-cared for while we were gone. Just finished reading all the precious notes. Can't tell you how much it means to us that you treat them so well and give them such special attention (especially the care you give to Blitzie and his special needs in his senior years). They both looked so beautiful with their fur all brushed! And both seemed so happy and relaxed.

Hi Marlene, We were very happy with your service. I loved reading your notes and it was comforting to know they were acting themselves (even the humping was "normal"). Noel said today to let you know you are hired forever! Thanks again,
-Mindy & Noel H. of Grafton
We were very impressed with all the notes and updates along with your professionalism. This should be a chance for us to travel again as we used to and will be very happy to recommend your services to anyone.

Thanks Marlene, you've done a great job! The dogs look great and Emma is ignoring me, which doesn't happen if I leave her for a day or two.
(it means she's happy too) :-)

Thank you so much for all of Jesse’s visits and your wonderful loving care. Jesse seems to have survived very well without us and we are most Thankful! I am also so grateful that you check our mail every day. We had asked to have it held, but apparently it was not. It looks like it was a lot of mail, too!!!
