Hi Nicole, Thank you so much again! The sitter you chose for us was fantastic! I don’t just say things like that lightly–we got home from California and for the first time ever my boys were well adjusted, they seemed happy and content, in fact they were like, “oh you guys are back!” haha It was awesome! Most of the time we come home to them all mopey and sad etc. and this was just, well, it warmed my heart. Caroline sent texts and pictures each night and left us a sweet note with a report card on the boys, they both got A+’s ha haa! We have a few more trips coming up this school year–we get married in December, and I know that Caroline will take great care of our boys for us. It honestly was the first trip that I slept soundly on!!! Thank you again Nicole–we’re so thrilled to have found you all and Caroline.

When doing my research while originally deciding where to leave my dogs, I learned the difference between using a home care service like this one or leaving my dog in a facility or kennel or vets offices and there is a world of a difference! These facilities boast having all this room and private rooms to sleep which i do not like. I like my dog being with people. Anyway my neighbor who used this facility said they leave the dogs all alone at night. No one is with them for 12 hours, 7am to 7pm. Awful. No cages but still alone. i would not go away if it were not for Whiskers and Leo and the service you provide. No one does what YOU do! No one no one is like u!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nicole, you have opened my world. I truly would not go anywhere. Even with so many people who say leave her to me, i do not trust they will take care of her like you guys do.

I have been using Whiskers & Leo since moving to Staten Island from Manhattan about 5 years ago. They are by far the best service I have used to date. Quick response time, always available and caring wonderful sitters who actually spend time with my cat rather than change the litter and leave like some of the services I have used in the past. Can’t say enough great things!!

Vinny and Marie D’Acunto and Rudy

I would never go anywhere else now that I found you, although Rudy misses you NICOLE.. There’s no competition or comparison in my opinion!!!!!


Saved. My. Life. THANK YOU!!!!! Holy crap, what would I do without you guys? I’ve had at least 4 dog walker companies dissolve on me over the years for myriad reasons (moved away, wasn’t profitable, went crazy — seriously) – you have been such an amazing, reliable, trustworthy, all-around awesome source. Can’t begin to tell you how happy I am we found you guys!

Highly satisfied is an understatement! The professionalism, follow up, & tireless efforts to accommodate my last minute scheduling is beyond expectation. As far as the girls who watch & walk Lexi…there are no words to express how grateful I am for their love & caring of her. As we all know, I am a little over-the-top with letting her out of my site & only 2 other people have taken care of her – my mother and a family friend who stayed with Lexi at my home. Your girls are now my greatest relief!

I have had many pet sitters — both individuals and businesses — over the years for our pup, Sally. Whiskers and Leo is by far the most responsible, dependable, caring pet care service I have had the great fortune to come across. They are always there for us and we trust them implicitly not only with our best buddy, but with our home. I don’t think it’s possible to say enough great things about them — we are so grateful to Nicole and her amazing team.

I had the best experience with Whiskers and Leo. They watched my two chihuahuas while I was away on a (not so fun) trip for medical reasons. From the moment I met my sitters I knew my babies were going to be fine. They were so real and down to earth and two of the nicest, caring people I have met. I’m very nervous and upset when I have to leave my little ones but they kept me updated with pictured and video the whole time and gave my babies extra special love and attention. I was so very pleased and hope to use them in the future. I can’t praise them enough!!!

Catherine Issac, Pippa, and Finn

Thank you so much for providing us with excellent service over the past (almost) 2 years. I just wanted to let you know that we will be moving back to NJ soon. It was so wonderful to know that I could always count on you/your staff to take excellent care of Pippa and Finn. In particular, I would like to let you know that we really loved Cathy and will be so sad to no longer have her. Not only were my dogs well exercised by her, but we have also noticed a change in our Finn who has always been a more “challenging” dog. He is calmer, more docile, and we have even noticed an improvement in the relationship between him and Pippa! We wish you the best in your life and business and will always be grateful to you. Thank you!

Nancy Izzo

I absolutely love Whiskers and Leo. I was in desperate need of an emergency dog walker and within a days time Nicole called me and set up meetings with a primary walker and a back up walker. Oliver loves his walkers! Many places give you a problem when you have an intact male and I was starting to get discouraged and worried that I wouldn’t find a walker. I can’t imagine what I would do without them! It has truly been a fantastic experience. I use the service whenever my parents are in Florida. It cannot say enough good things about them!

Liz Nelson

I have to say being recommended to whiskers and Leo was a God send !! My 2 yr old dog spent 3 nights with Trisha and it was our first time apart . I could not have asked for a better experience , she had a great time and Trisha was amazing keeping me updated thru her stay i couldn’t ask for anything better!!!!

Mary, Emmy, and Pearl

Hello Nicole, I’m just writing to tell you how much I enjoyed my vacation knowing that Caroline was taking care of my cats, Emmy and Pearl. Her love of animals and her kindness were evident when I first met her, and she lived up to that first impression throughout. She sent me photos and videos and updates throughout my trip, and so after the first couple of days away, as I began to realize that there was nothing at all to worry about as far as the cats were concerned, I actually began to relax and had an entirely worry free vacation. She also went above and beyond the call of duty, bringing them toys, treats, and catnip. I came home to two very contented creatures. The only drawback is I think they miss her! I have recommended your services to friends. I am sure they will be as satisfied as I am. Thanks again for providing such great services and dedicated sitters.

Jeannie, Jett and Gigi

Hiring Whiskers and Leo went better than I could have imagined! Jenny was great, within just a few minutes of meeting her I knew my dogs would be in good hands. She sent regular updates with pictures which made me feel so at ease. Her whole family was wonderful with my girls!! I can’t say enough good things about Jenny and Whiskers and Leo. I’ve already told everyone I’ve spoken to this week about you. Having never left my dogs with anyone before, I was really nervous about it. Now I feel like I can actually take a vacation one day. I will surely use your service again and highly recommend Jenny and Whiskers and Leo to all my friends and family. What a great experience!! Thank you for everything!
