well when I am away. He is very bonded to me, but he continues

friend Theresia.”

“Theresia has been walking my dogs since 2007. My girls
absolutely ADORE her, and you can just tell that she is a total
animal/dog person. Theresia is always willing to work with me re:
changes in my schedule/needs, which I very much appreciate. I
don't trust very many people with my girls, but I have complete
confidence in Theresia. She always leaves me a note to let me
know how things went, and calls me on my cell phone to notify me
of anything out-of-the-ordinary.”

“Theresia has kept my Jack Russell at her home multiple times. I
always pick up a happy dog at the end of her stay. Theresia has
also been available at a minute's notice in the past when I needed
a dog walker. She genuinely loves animals and that comes
through in the care she gives one of the most important members
of my household. I highly recommend her services.”

Jordan  (client)
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity
“I first hired Theresia as a dog-walker a couple times a week
when I decided to go back to Graduate School. She provided
excellent service, and later expanded her services to extended
care. At one point, I was travelling 4 days out of each week.
Theresia would pick up my dog, Echo, on Monday mornings, and
return her to my house on Thursday afternoons. Now, I take Echo
to Theresia's whenever I go on vacation. It’s a bit of a haul from
where I live now, but Echo adores Theresia, and I know she is well
cared for while there. I highly recommend Theresia and the Pet

“I have hired Theresia Waimuri and her staff at The Pet Stop
several times over the past few years to take care of my dog. I
have taken advantage of the in home pet sitting services offered
for both short (1-3 day) and extended (> 7 days) periods. The Pet
Stop is unrivaled in their competitive pricing for the Montgomery
County area. The Pet Stop staff has been very professional and
accommodating for items such as short notice, giving pet
medication, bringing in mail and many other important details that
provide peace of mind while I am away. It is always clear when I
return from a trip that my dog has been well cared for. Moreover, I
have seen my dog interact with the pet sitters and he is always
super excited to see them. I have recommended The Pet Stop to
friends, family and co-workers who are in need of pet care
services and will continue to do so in the future.”

Holly  (client)
Top qualities: Expert, Good Value, High Integrity
“Theresia provides a great Pet sitting service for my dogs. I
usually board them with her several times a year including 3
weeks in August for my vacation. My dogs love to go to the Pet
Stop, it is their home away from home. Theresia's rates are
comparable to commercial kennels/boarding services, but she
provides a wonderful personal touch and treats my dogs as if they
are he own. I will also have the Pet Stop do walks on an as
needed basis and my dogs are always happy to see Theresia or
another person from the Pet Stop.”

pet sitting service.”

“Theresia is a great dog sitter ... conscientious, caring and
knowledgeable. She gives the dogs enough freedom to enjoy
themselves, yet also keeps them safe and healthy; and treats
each dog differently depending on its own needs and personality
(or should that be "dog-ality"? ;-). I recommend The Pet Stop

Andreea  (client)

“Theresia is incredibly responsible, personable, and loves our pup
almost as much as we do. We would strongly recommend
Theresia and her colleagues to anyone looking for pet care. We
have had several dog caretakers over the last four years and no
one compares to the quality and love Theresia and her team
brings to the table.”

“Theresia does a great job with sitting for my 2 cats. If she doesn't
do the cat sit personally, the people she hires to come to the
house are also excellent. She is conscientious. Makes sure that
she knows how to contact me while I am away, my exact travel
dates, and makes sure I get back when I said I would get back.”

Jemelle  (client)
Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity
“Theresia became a wonderful addition to our home in 2006. As
many of you know your dog/pet is your best friend and most times
your "baby", so it’s very important to find someone you trust to
leave your "baby" with. Theresia became everything you expect
and more! Aside from the daily pet walking, I often used her Bed
and Breakfast service and always felt reassured My Ollie was in
great hands. Theresia makes it possible for you to work the long
work day/week by providing your pet that much needed exercise
and interaction you can't do. Theresia treats all of her animals as
if they are her own. I Highly recommend her for any of her offered
services....I have used them all. You will not be disappointed in the
results or the value...”

Linda  (client)

“When I have to leave town it's comforting to know that my pup is
in good hands. Theresia has a genuine love for animals. She
treats my dog as one of her own. When I return from a trip, I
always find my dog happy, healthy and usually a little tired from all
of the playtime she receives. I’m so happy to have such a
wonderful place for my pup to go when I have to leave her behind!”

Susan & Tony  (client)

“Upon (thankfully) discovering Theresia as a pet setter, she came
to our home, met our 'cat kids,' and took the time to visit with me
so that we could 'know' her. She keeps a record of our cats’ shots
and general health, our vet's number, and is mindful that she has
our contact information up to date. We trust her to come in and
out of our home and care for our cats in a loving, care-giving
manner. We are very protective of our cat kids so it's reassuring
to know that we are leaving them in the care of someone who is
competent, dependable, and trust-worthy. I would highly
recommend Theresia as a pet sitter.”

“When I first rescued Lexi, a small yellow lab, it was challenging to
find a place I felt comfortable leaving her as she was very skittish.
After a friend referred Theresia and told me how well she cared
for his dog, I brought Lexi to meet Theresia and the family at The
Pet Stop. Seeing Lexi immediately warm up to the environment
and knowing she wouldn't be locked in a crate all day, sold me. I
have been using Theresia since the beginning and will continue
as long as possible. I know that Lexi is having a blast when I am
away and it is great for her social development. My vacations are
truly worry free; furthermore, both Lexi and I are having fun.”

“I travel frequently on business and The Pet Stop is the only place
I trust with my German Sheppard while I'm gone. He is very
attached to me but always feels at home at The Pet Stop and has
a great time. I would highly recommend Theresia for all of your
Pet sitting/walking needs.
