    "... We can't think of anyone more qualified, caring and reliable to watch over our pets while we are out town. ... He will love and care for your pets as if they were his own."

    Bryan is, in one word, FABULOUS! We can't think of anyone more qualified, caring and reliable to watch over our pets while we are out town. Bryan has been a friend of ours for over ten years and he is like family! He will love and care for your pets as if they were his own.During our most recent trip, Bryan came over daily to care for our 3 cats. He not only just made sure they had food, water and a clean litter box, he also took the time to play with them and give them love. I recommend Bryan 150%. You won't have to worry about your pets one bit with Bryan watching over them. Thank you Bryan, you are absolutely the best!

    "When you are traveling, peace of mind is EVERYTHING. Traveling and leaving our "kids" at pet care always left me worried ... All this with almost no disrupted pet lives and at prices cheaper than dragging the "girls" screaming to the pet hotel! ..."

    When you are traveling, peace of mind is EVERYTHING. Traveling and leaving our "kids" at pet care always left me worried. Our older cat is a feisty 13 year old diabetic we affectionate call "Stinky". Her twice-a-day insulin shots have to come at set times.

    Bryan is simply outstanding -- not only do our kitties get first class food, beverage & insulin shot service, but "scooper duty", too. He also brings in mail, waters plants, & has even been known to wash a dish or two left in the sink!! All this with almost no disrupted pet lives and at prices cheaper than dragging the "girls" screaming to the pet hotel! With peace of mind not only with the pets but the house, too, we now travel worry-free and LOVE it SO MUCH MORE!

    Bryan is nice, trustworthy, handsome, and very caring of the kids - the most important thing. He's a great friend and a dynamite pet sitter! Thanks, Bryan!

    We have a sweet and loving, well behaved Miniature Pinscher named Roxy who is treated like a “child” of the family. As I consider her my daughter, she is always with us traveling when we go to tennis tournaments. As tournament sites have become stricter with “no pets allowed” policies, we decided to try out Bryan’s pet sitting services and we are very pleased with all his services. Our Roxy comes to us happy, washed and with current up to date shots, courtesy of Bryan’s attention to details. The sessions with Bryan free me up from a lot of stress, and worries about our pet being left behind. Bryan is very accommodating even with short notices. To this day, Roxy wags her tail when she sees Bryan, will even go to his house and she considers Bryan her second “parent”. Thanks a lot Bryan- we are very pleased with everything!

    Bryan and I have been friends for over 13 years. During that time, Bryan has taken care of 2 of my dogs. The first dog, Girlene, was a very possessive female Chow Chow in her twilight years who did not tolerate anyone but me. It was hard for me to travel since I couldn’t board her anywhere. Bryan was able to work with Girlene so that eventually he could keep her whenever I needed until she passed away after 15 years in July 2007.

    Bryan possesses the patience, knowledge and an uncanny knack to relate to and understand dogs. These traits together with his conscientious and diligent work ethic make Bryan an outstanding animal caregiver professional. Shadow, my second dog a male Labrador/Husky Mix, joined my household at 3 months old in March 2008. Bryan has been training and taking care of Shadow ever since. He is a high-energy dog who needs a strong leader and lots of exercise. I travel about 14 weeks a year and know that while I’m away Shadow is being exercised daily, supervised, fed properly and, most of all, loved.

    We all know that a person who owns and loves a pet is a special person to begin with, Bryan Pfeifer is that tenfold. Bryan has been a friend and a peer of mine for over a decade. He is a truly kind, responsible and patient person who takes his job very seriously. He has years of experience in the pet care profession under his belt and continues to push the envelope in the animal care industry. He not only takes care of your pet, he loves and pampers it. He makes sure and assures you that you can be 100% confident that your pet is in the best possible care that you can supply your special family member.

    Being that I travel so much for my job, it is nice to know that I can leave my dog with someone I trust implicitly and that genuinely cares about my dog. My dog Jinx, is just crazy about Bryan ... When Bryan comes to pick him up or I drop him off, the dog goes ballistic with enthusiasm at seeing him. That in itself expresses everything I am trying to convey here because we all know animals have that extra little sense of perception that we don't.

    I know that when my little Jinx is being taken care of by Bryan, he is safe, happy and Loved. Whether I am away for two hours or two weeks, having Bryan as his guardian leaves me with a complete and utter sense of security. I highly recommend Bryan to take care of your pet. Thank you Bryan!

    " ... On our last trip he really showed his skill and dedication to not only what he does, but to Thumper. She had just had her second knee surgery (TPLO) and was only a couple weeks out of surgery. I asked Bryan if he was still okay watching her since it required additional work/care on his part. He assured me he had no problems with what was required. He performed all of her rehabilitation that was necessary, and when we picked her up after 12 days, she was doing better than when we left! ..."

    Bryan started doggy sitting Thumper for us about a year ago. Since I don’t have children, Thumper is really like my baby. I am always concerned about leaving her, especially for extended trips. However, after the first time she stayed with Bryan, I knew we had found someone that I would trust with her no matter what the situation.

    Since then, we have used Bryan on multiple occasions and have always been extremely satisfied with the love and care he flourishes her with. On our last trip he really showed his skill and dedication to not only what he does, but to Thumper. She had just had her second knee surgery (TPLO) and was only a couple weeks out of surgery. I asked Bryan if he was still okay watching her since it required additional work/care on his part. He assured me he had no problems with what was required. He performed all of her rehabilitation that was necessary, and when we picked her up after 12 days, she was doing better than when we left! We have absolute trust and faith in Bryan, and would highly recommend him to anyone that asked!

     Bryan has been a wonderful part of my pet family for the past two years. He absolutely loves what he does and his enthusiasm for all six of my animals shows each and every time he comes by to take care of them. Knowing I can turn to him whenever I need his assistance has been fantastic. I had spoken to Bryan about my dogs being a bit unruly on walks with me even though I had taken them through extensive training elsewhere. In a short time working with Bryan on weekly walks, they had really improved. I also had a skin issue with one of my dogs, the medicine that the vet used had harsh chemicals and wasn’t working. Bryan suggested a more safe alternative health product which I now use and no longer need the vet’s medicine. I love that I get a picture after he visits, it’s just reassuring that all is well while I’m away. Bryan has extensive knowledge regarding all things pets, he's amazing and so happy we found him!

    Bryan is absolutely fantastic! I have two pit-bulls and they ADORE Bryan -- they know he loves them too. My husband is a total paranoid freak about letting people into our house alone which is why the housekeeper can only come when one of us is there... BUT he has total confidence in Bryan having keys and alarm codes.

    Bryan was so professional and well put-together when he conducted the first visit/interview. Taking careful notes, asking thoughtful questions, even how to say certain commands in Spanish (when he noticed we'd trained the dogs bilingual). He inspired total confidence and trust.
    He's punctual (to the minute!) and sends great "update pics" to my phone when they're on a hike. He varies the trails so I know the "kidz" aren't getting bored and they're always really pooped and happy after they've been out with him. He's often found a way to work us into his schedule on very short notice. His rates are truly reasonable and he's just a lovely human being.
    I recommended him to our neighbors who've used him to dog-sit their three tiny beasts :) and all we ever talk about afterwards is how great Bryan is.

    When my partner and I moved to LA, we were nervous about finding someone as caring and professional as the dog walker/sitter we had for years in New York. Luckily for us – and for our two dogs – someone we trust recommended Bryan and Pet Approved Care. Pierre and Lola love Bryan and tails wag every time they see him. And we love the great photos he sends of their walks and time together! We can’t recommend Bryan highly enough for anyone who needs a responsible, compassionate dog walker or sitter.

    I do a fair amount of traveling for work, and it's always very stressful for me to leave my pets, especially when I'm out of the country. Bryan has always provided excellent care for my feline family members, and it's indescribably comforting to receive his daily text messages with photos and updates. One of my cats recently had a health issue and needed constant monitoring. Bryan made daily visits to my home to check on her because I was unable to get away from the office.

    It really is a great comfort to know that when I'm away, my family will under Bryan's impeccable care.

    We needed a pet sitter to look after our 2 year old Labradoodle while we went on a 10 day vacation. Bryan was highly recommended to us by our dog trainer. From Bryan's initial home visit we knew our pup would be in great hands and had no worries at all when the day came to go on our separate vacations! From day one, we received daily texts and photos of Oli's activities, which always included at least one good hike with other canine friends. He also had his pick of at least five dog beds within Bryan's home and found his preferred spot with ease. Bryan returned Oli to us freshly bathed and brushed by our regular groomer and I know that Oli was definitely sad to say goodbye. I cannot say enough good things about Pet Approved Care's dog boarding services. Bryan has become our first boarding choice whenever we travel. The only negative thing I can say is that by writing this review, we may find it harder to get a reservation!

    Bryan has been a constant in two generations of our dog's lives, from just checking in and giving the kidz
    a quick outing mid-day, to walks, and providing assistance with training our youngest when she proved somewhat difficult
    as she was being socialized and learning to behave on walks. She's nearly perfect now! Thanks Bryan!

    We never worry when Bryan is looking after our dogs. His patience and love for animals is readily
    apparent and our animals respond in kind. We would HIGHLY recommend his company for any
    animal-related support! It's like having family look after your pets!
