Thanks for “dog sitting” Shasta!  It was a great comfort to us to know that she was in such competent hands.  When we parted this afternoon, she wanted to follow you!  That says it all, doesn’t it!?!
I am sure the we will use your services again, if a return to Winnipeg is in our near future, which is likely.

There are few people you know you can trust with your fur babies and access to your home upon an initial meeting. Gary is one of those few. My dogs loved him immediately and I felt at ease. Thank you Gary for taking such good care of Linkyn and Brody when I needed someone to help me out on extremely long work days and check in, feed and play with them. I love the daily report, it shows how much you truly care!

Gary is a great guy if you're looking for a trustworthy and caring person to take care of your fur babies!

Aside from what's already mentioned on other reviews; superb professionalism, genuinely cares for pets, knowledgeable of service he provides, easy to deal with, provides updates regularly... it's everything you can ask for for pet sitting service and more.  He was also quick to accommodate our last minute additional request to check in with the dogs during the day. And at a very reasonable price too.  Some of his updates would crack us up, which makes  talking to him more fun.  
Will definitely use his service again. And now, we won't feel guilty going on vacation anymore as we feel that our babies enjoyed their time with Gary.  I almost forgot to mention that I texted him 2 AM to inquire about his services and he responded as soon as he can... in the morning.  We later had a laugh about it when he first met with us.  Strongly recommended.  We are glad that he provides such a service, and an excellent one!  Thank you!

Thank you for providing such excellent care to our sweet Charlie. Vacations were always a stressful time for me, as I always felt uncomfortable and guilty for leaving Charlie home alone or at a boarding kennel. It's a great relief to be able to enjoy our vacations knowing that Charlie is well cared for at home by And Away You Go! I certainly knew Charlie was well taken care of when we returned home from a week-long vacation and Charlie greeted us at the door, stretched, turned around and went straight back to his nap!!! He didn't miss us at all!!!

Gary.....A 100% proffessional  with his job. I recently used Gary's pet sitting services for my 2 dogs . They were never left with anyone before and I am sooo happy that I found Gary. He took good care of them and the house like his own... He updated us with pictures  and texts . He left a thank you card and a brief report for us.  Thank you sooo much Gary for being  very patient and kind with my fur babies.  Anyone looking for pet sitting services please do not hesitate to call Gary from " And Away You Go" as he's the best! I would 100% recommend him.

We found Gary through the Pet Sitters International website. We were flying into Winnipeg for a couple nights and needed some daytime ball play. Gary was very easy to initially communicate with over email and responded promptly. Gary asked all the right questions to understand PawLick and his needs. He is also very accommodating, as soon as we landed I let Gary know and he met us at our hotel near the airport within the hour. We setup the arrangements to pick up PawLick from the hotel and take him to a park for some ball play. 
Gary conducted himself in a very professional manner and I feel he truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. PawLick and I would highly recommend him as a pet sitter.

I fully recommend Gary for pet sitting services - for his care of animals, willingness to go above and beyond what is expected, and full feedback while away to know your pets are safe, healthy, and being properly cared for in your absence. 
I feel blessed to have found Gary at a time when we were planning a last minute trip and needed someone to reliably care for our brood of cats, guinea pigs, and rabbits. From our first meeting, I knew Gary was someone who loves animals and is truly concerned for their well-being. Our cats immediately liked Gary as well (always a good sign). 
Gary is very knowledgeable on pet care, which given our variety of pets was greatly appreciated. Gary routinely went above and beyond what was expected and delivered high-quality service. He is incredibly thoughtful and forward thinking, offering to help us out beyond simply pet care, but also ensuring we had lights on timers...checking through the house for security...taking care of shoveling as needed, and finally reporting to us regularly with photos of our pets. Not only that, he has always responded promptly when I've sent an email or text so that I could relax and rest easy. We returned home to see he had also vacuumed and swept so that we didn't have to deal with a floor full of bedding! 
It can be a difficult decision to leave your pets in charge of someone you don't know. You can rest easy with Gary, you and your pets are in capable and compassionate hands!

We found Gary before we went on a 5 day international trip and were very happy with the results. He is  very thorough when he comes to meet you and your pets and also to tour your house.  We were impressed at the included house services such as light timers, mail collection and other touches to keep your home secure. 
The best part is just how much Gary cares about animals. He asked for a lot of details regarding our cats and was very understanding of our specific requests. We were also glad that he got along with them quickly, as one of our cats is afraid of new people. Upon return we found that our cats were calmer than they normally are when we leave for long periods of time which shows that he gave them plenty of attention to keep them happy while we were gone. 
Would highly recommend as Gary is a very trustworthy and reliable person.
