The cat sitting service is awesome, they tries to accommodate our last-minutes changes, and cleans the entire area around the cat litter box.

Heather was awesome! We have a very shy cat but after a few days they were best friends.This company is legit. They scheduled a meet-and-greet and had thorough information forms to make sure the sitter isn't locked out and any specific needs the pet had. Will be booking again for future trips!

I cannot recommend Bay Area Pet Pals enough!! They were incredibly fast in answering my initial online inquiry. The process for signing up was very easy and they are very thorough in getting information on each fur baby. The prices were also very fair! We have two cats in our apartment that we had never left alone overnight before and our sitter gave us very thorough updates at each visit. It was such a comfort knowing they were so well taken care of! I look forward to working with them again in the future!!

I’ve been using Bay Area Pet Pals (BAPP) for as long as I’ve had my dog (10+ years) and there is absolutely no other dog boarding service nor individual that I would trust to provide as outstanding a level of expertise with kind loving care as BAPP and Lynda. Lynda is experienced, professional yet personable and I have complete peace of mind and trust her implicitly whenever I leave my dog in her care. In fact, all my vacations are always scheduled with her availability in mind. I truly can’t imagine a pet care provider who could be any better.

Bay Area Pet Pals has earned my trust and business! The owner (Lynda) of Bay Area Pet Pals was responsive to all my emails while I was inquiring and searching for a pet sitter. Lynda was extremely helpful in ensuring me that her team was experienced and accountable for services provided. I am so grateful and happy that I found Bay Area Pet Pals. Brandy was excellent and took great care of Rue (my cat) while I was away. I received a text update from Brandy on Rue which I was very happy about as it put me at ease. She even sent me pictures of Rue :).I am excited to have a trusted team that I can continue to use for pet sitting in the near future. Bay Area Pet Pals is awesome. I definitely feel that they are a team of loving, trained caregivers for peoples fur-babies!

We've boarded our dog with Lynda for the past five years. We wouldn't trust our precious little one with anyone else. We truly have peace of mind knowing Ava is very well cared for. Lynda's house is immaculate and Ava gets to enjoy the familiarity of a home instead of in a small solitary boarding room. Lynda ensures Ava gets daily walks and her feeding rituals. We really appreciate that Lynda provides daily photo updates and is very accommodating to our requests.

We have been using Lynda’s services for more than a year now and they are fantastic. Cassie has been our dog walker and she was always perfect, on time and best of all, our 2 monsters (English Cocker spaniels) love her. We also had them sitting Canoowie and Lola for a week when we had an emergency trip!!!! Heidi stayed in our place giving them all the attention and always keeping us informed on how they were. We truly recommend Bay Area Pet Pals!

We love Bay Area Pet Pals! We've been a customer for more than 6 years and have had two different, terrific dog walkers (one moved out of state) — both of them were/are reliable, trustworthy and adore our dog as much as we do. We've also used the owner Lynda's pet boarding services over the years, which have been a huge help. Lynda is caring, reliable, communicative, and treats our dog like one of her own. We always feel better having our dog stay with Lynda in a home environment rather than being boarded in a cage. Happy we found Lynda and Bay Area Pet Pals. Highly recommend!

I recently had Lori from Bay Area Pet Pals take care of my two cats while I was on a trip abroad. Lori did a wonderful job while I was away - she even sent daily updates to let me know that the cats were doing well. My shy cat even came out from hiding to see Lori - this is very rare! I was able to have a great trip knowing that my cats were being well taken care of.

Reliable and trustworthy. They are always available to take care of any concerns I have, no matter how last minute.

Bay Area Pet Pals have been a godsend for me. We were new to the Bay area 3 years ago and I didn't have the family I normally relied on to watch my cats. On top of that one of my cats is diabetic and the other has chronic kidney disease. I'm a Veterinary Technician so finding the right people to watch my cats was critical and boarding them just stresses them out. I reached out to Lynda and was super impressed by her business model and the care takers she hires. You give her a lot of information about your pets and that really eased my mind that she cares about them. She is upfront about what she needs from the pet owner so there are no issues while you are gone. I travel a lot and Alisse and Kim and absolutely phenomenal! They give my diabetic cat her insulin and Alisse was even willing to learn to give fluids to my old gal. They spend quality time with them and are in constant communication with me via text or email. You do pay for the service but the peace of mind I get leaving my cats in their care is worth it to me.I highly recommend them!

Bay Area Pet Pals sent Kate to take care of my older dog Moxie and younger cat Jo. My animals are so happy now it is clear to me that Kate is the reason. She is a lovely cheerful person and my older dog now initiates play and my cat carries around a toy Kate knitted her. She texts me about my pets and notifies me if something is up; she is a lovely person.Lynda, the owner, is a top notch communicator and business woman. I love how organized she is and clearly states what is going on. She's been flexible and very fair with all our interactions. She also is up on the tech so that's really good.I would absolutely recommend Bay Area Pet Pals. They are wonderful.

Top tier pet sitters. We use them every time we go out of town to watch our cats and salt water aquarium and everything is always great. Daily updates (with pictures!) really add to peace of mind and makes it slightly easier to be away.

We were so fortunate to find the services of Bay Area Pet Pals around 7 years ago!! The owner Lynda is an amazing pet lover!! BAPP has assisted us with daily walks for our girls Millie and Bella, as well as boarding over the years. If you are looking for top notch 5 star service when it comes to walks or boarding for your pooch BAPP is the place!!!A pic of Bella enjoying herself while we were away on vacation!! : )

I have been using Bay Area Pet Pals for 2 years now and our dog walker, Jodi, is awesome. They are flexible with last minute requests and very responsive. My dog enjoys his walk every time and he gets Christmas presents from Jodi too. I am very satisfied with their service and will continue using them for dog walks.

We have been using Lynda/Bay Area Pet Pals for at least 7 years as our petsitter for our 2 little dogs whenever we are out of town or need for other reasons. There is no one else I would trust as much as Lynda to take care of them. Her place is like their home away from home, and she treats and loves them as her own. And they get happily excited when they see her. Lynda has also had to give one of our dogs medication every day while we were gone, and she followed through with no problem. My husband and I highly recommend Bay Area Pet Pals to take excellent care of your pets. For us, it's peace of mind that our two dogs are in good hands while we're gone.

I love this place for so many reasons. Lynda and her team are fabulous with my little dog. She doesn’t do well in larger format boarding facilities and being with BAPP is like being at a home away from home. I absolutely love my dog walker too. She’s super reliable and genuinely enjoys what she does.
