Our family loves Carol!
Our family loves Carol! She has made such a great connection with our 3 dogs (15yr old and two 2yr olds) and they love when she takes care of them! Our older dog also has health issues, and Carol makes sure he gets his medicine and extra care. We can go on vacation with peace of mind! I really appreciate Carol’s dedication to and love for what she does… it shows in the care, attention to detail, and love she shows for our dogs. We are so glad we found Carol!
Carol is AMAZING!
We are so thrilled to have found Carol! We moved to New Braunfels 5 years ago with 2 kittens in tow. My husband and I travel a lot for both work and pleasure and looking for a pet sitter was stressful for us. Carol is AMAZING! Easily accessible, conscientious, thorough and trustworthy! AND MY CATS LOVE HER! I know they are in good hands because she loves them like her own!
Hill Country Pet Sitters Plus Carol Schon, Owner
Folks. Mary and I have used Carol and her quaint business, Hill Country Pet Sitters Plus, since the summer of 2010. I have found the reliability, care and personalized attention Carol provides unmatched by many other offers to tend for our in-house kennel needs.
We have been in the Search and Rescue K-9 field since 1994. The various dogs we have in our household are both male and female German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois, all very high-drive and high maintenance canines. We confidently leave all of them in Carol’s care assured that they will receive the individualized attention required.
Here are some key points to consider that Carol’s service provides:
- Timely Attention – when she says she will be there, she is there. Be it an in-house A.M., midday or late night visit she shows. We have had her visit up to 4X a day when the weather was inclement considering the variability of the Texas rural road conditions.
- Follows Detailed Instructions – we have canines needing medications, various feeding quantities, and with the high-drive pack – separate pack walk requirements all of which are provided even though it takes more of her precious time.
- Personalized Care – She treats your animals as if they were her own family – with one-on-one attention and a gentle caring voice. She also is capable of assessing minor injuries and providing basic first aid for the inevitable cuts and scraps our yard can provide.
- Short Notice – I try not to do this, but our travel schedules sometimes involve short notice requests. Carol has been able to assist us more times than naught. But I would recommend an advance notice for her time, as the holidays especially can be hectic.
- Affordable Costs – The peace of mind and confidence we have knowing our family is in good hands is hard to place a dollar value on. But we feel we have a service that is worth more than gold.
She really loves him
Met Carol about 6 months ago. She has been a God send to me and our dog Shadow. When I have to go out of town and can’t bring him, I know that he will be well cared for because she really loves him. He really looks forward to his sleep overs !!!
Carol has been great taking
Carol has been great taking care of our 3 bullies for 2 years now. She text’s us pics of how the visits are going. She gives them treats and lots of attention. The dogs have a blast and makes us feel at ease while we are out of town.
Carol has watched our pet
Carol has watched our pet Sami for 4 years now. We go on two week trips and I have such a good feeling when I leave her, she loves Carol and is spoiled by her. Carol is a wonderful care taker for all Animals. We have set our friends up with her also and she’s the only place they will leave there dogs. It’s like they are at home when they are with Carol. Can’t say enough about how sweet and Wonderful she is. Sami rates her a 10 out of 10. Debby Shobe
Hi! I have had Carol as a petsitter now for over a year. She has been really reliable and spends a lot of quality time with my dog and cat. She sends me text messages to let me know how they are doing as well as pictures. I was really worried about moving to Texas and not finding a good pet sitter. Well, my worries were gone when I met Carol!
Carol has been watching my family of pets for almost 8 years now! She has taken care of my dogs, cats, birds, and home with a loving and caring attitude. I feel very comfortable knowing that my pets will be cared for in my home when I am out of town. She checks on them daily and this includes feeding them, walking and playing with them, as well as collecting my mail and caring for my home. I can contact her easily if I have questions or concerns while I am on vacation and she always answers immediately. I have hired her to walk my mothers dog every day as well, since she is not able to do so. This provided me peace of mind that someone makes sure he is exercised daily and well cared for. She always go above and beyond when caring for pets and it is obvious she LOVES what she does!
I have been using Carol for several years now and she has been excellent with my Great Dane. My dog is picky about who she likes, but she LOVES Carol. She has always been available with I needed her (even late at night and weekends). I have recommending her to others for years and will continue to do so.
Carol has worked with our family for over 3 years. She was so understanding of the needs of our senior dog Einstein. Whether it was a tummy rub, a walk or tossing the ball in the yard, she has met his needs at his pace. Even though he is now deaf and blind he still comes home happy and content with his stays.
Carol is very responsive and understanding of the individual needs of both pet and pet owners. I am comforted in the knowledge Einstein is on a vacation when we are. Knowing she will show him a good-time while we are gone.
We have been using the pet sitting service for a couple of years now and we are always please with the service. We have two whippets and one cat and we know they are in great hands with Carol whenever we are on vacation. One of my favorite things is that Carol will write up notes on what occurred during her visits while we were away. I keep a travel journal and I like to know what our “fur babies” were doing on their vacation…from us!
I live at Canyon lake and have used Carol’s in-home pet-sitting services at least ten times — often for a month or longer. Carol always does what she promises. She knows dogs and cats very well, and is so great at taking loving care of their needs. It’s especially nice that she checks the house, the meal, the trash, etc, whenever whe visits. She always communicates with updates via text message on the pets and the house. Her rates are reasonable as well. I never worry about my pets or my home when away because Carol is so good at her job. Highly recommended.
My experiences with Carol has only been the highest quality care. My dog Bangles loves Carol and is happy when she returns from several night stays. I know that Bangles is getting the best and safest attention. Carol grooms Bangles also, it has always been a good experience. I have referred Carol to other pet owners and they had expressed the same satisfaction. Carol is the best!
Carol has been taking care of my cats for years. She is reliable and always has great communications regarding the well-being of my cats. My cats absolutely adore her and have a much better time adjusting when I am out of town. Thank you, Carol for your dedication and kind-loving nature!
We have been blessed to have Carol and her team of pet assistants in our lives since 2008! I cannot express enough how much we love and rely upon Carol. She’s practically my fur children’s nanny. She is responsive, detail oriented, and altogether wonderful. I pray she never retires! Not only does she care for our pets when we are out of town but she also tends to the house. Our pets (currently 2 German short hair pointers, 1 yorkie, 1 cat & a Sugar Glider) love her and never experience the anxiety or sickness that comes from putting your animals in kennels. If I have an emergency & can’t get one of them to a vet because of work, Carol steps right in to help me. On one occasion, sadly, our beloved 15 year old dog CoCo passed away from old age while we were out of town. She took care of everything which helped us emotionally and gave us peace of mind that she’d been taken care of 110% when she chased that unicorn over the rainbow into doggy heaven. In a world of chaos and mistrust, it is refreshing to have someone like Carol in our lives. Love her!
Carol was great with our critters, And she does a “Report card” on them, more like a journal, I suppose. Told us how they did, we were gone several days.
