  • My husband and I welcomed home our miniature goldendoodle, Isla, in July. We were so lucky to find Terri as she has guided us through every step of puppy-hood. Terri and her staff are highly dependable and trustworthy. We cannot say enough about the quality of their services—our neighbors even have repeatedly told us how good of care Terri takes of Isla when we are not home.


  • I am happy to write a letter of reference for Terri Goshorn, friend and animal lover. I have known Terri since 2012 and worked with her as a fellow rescuer with Rosa's Rescue as well as employed her to care for my personal animals. She brings compassion and understanding to her work with the animals. She is reliable and trustworthy and has often gone beyond expectations when caring for my animals when I am away, e.g., provides additional time with my "lonely" pups. She alerts me to any concerns that may arise and has also cared for my dogs at the end of life. She even accompanied me to the vet on a Sunday when it was time to say good bye to my incredible boy, Hoss. She would be a great asset to your family in the care of your animals, and she would treat them as if they were her own. Thank you very much.

  • We LOVE A1 Pet Sitting. Our dog, Rylie, is always well cared for. She looks forward to the visits from the pet service. We feel comfortable and confident when we are away from home. We HIGHLY recommend calling A1 Pet Sitting!

  • Highly recommended for in-home pet sitting! Terri went above and beyond in taking care of my high-energy Belgian Malinois after he was injured. She took him for some walks, did some physical therapy, administered meds, cold and hot packs when needed—even took him to the vet for me once! I also used her to come over to walk a Dutch Shepherd I was fostering. Like the Malinois, these are energetic, active dogs that need an experienced handler! Terri was definitely up to the job and my dogs all adore and respect her! I've been a client since 2013.

  • Hi! My name is Gambit and I am a high energy Belgian Malinois! In spite of my incredible good looks, I was dumped at the pound twice before I was rescued! I guess nobody could keep up with me! I was injured in my new forever home and my mom was worried she could not find anyone to come over to help take care of me while she at work—I am not kidding when I said I was energetic! She was so happy to find Terri at A-1 Pet Sitting. Terri came over to walk me and did some exercise on my boo-boo leg and even took me to an emergency vet visit when I chewed off the cast on my leg!. My mom says I am a brat but I really respected Terri and was a very good boy for her! She also came over to walk my Dutch Shepherd foster brother! He is another strong, energetic, active dog that needed someone experienced to handle him, but I told him all about Teri and he was a good boy for her too! Mom says she worries about us, but I told her that she has nothing to fear when Teri and A-1 Pet sitting is on the job!!!


  • There are not enough words to describe Terri and all of the services she has provided for us. Over the past three years, she grew from being a dog walker, pet sitter and pet advisor to being more like a member of our family! She was always flexible enough to be able to visit my fur babies whenever they needed her (i.e., if they were not feeling well on a particular day, coming earlier or staying a bit longer was never a problem; or if my scheduled changed, she was more than willing to make any necessary last minute adjustments). She is extremely reliable and her great love for our fur babies was clearly demonstrated each and every day. She loved them just as much as we did! Oftentimes, my dog would go “looking” for Terri on the weekends when we were home; as she loved Terri so much! If a car drove by that looked like Terri’s, our dog wanted to go to it to “find” Terri. And if we saw her walking another dog, our dog would run to Terri for love and rubs! The level of care that Terri provides is absolutely amazing! She is incredibly easy to work with and also very affordable. We were incredibly fortunate to have found Terri to care for our dog and two cats, and we would not trust them to anyone else. She is by far the best and we cannot recommend her highly enough.
