About Us/Staff

Have you been disappointed before with the service your pet sitter or dog walker provided? That has happened to us before as well. What better way to change that then to start our own pet sitting business in Seattle, WA, where we can give Seattle pet owners a high quality service at very competitive prices, and help eliminate the anxiety over leaving your pet at home during a vacation, extended trip, or just the normal workday.

Excellent customer service is extremely important to Creature Comforts Pet Sitting of Seattle: if you call and leave a voicemail during normal business hours, you will receive a 10 percent discount if your call is not returned within four hours. We grow tired of hearing people complain about pet sitting companies taking two or more days to call them back. That is not professional service, and will never happen with Creature Comforts Pet Sitting of Seattle! When looking for pet sitting and dog walking in Seattle, WA, make sure they are insured and bonded. You do not want someone coming into your home that you cannot trust! All of our sitters are insured and bonded, we wouldn’t have it any other way!

We price our pet sitting and dog walking services at very affordable rates because we feel that many pet sitting companies in Seattle, WA overcharge for their services. We also provide the same or better quality pet sitting services then the more expensive companies. We also can send picture messages, and are in constant communication with our clients with updates on our visits. Another added benefit of choosing Creature Comforts Pet Sitting of Seattle is that we DO NOT charge extra fees for holiday services!

Matthew, Owner/Pet Sitting Expert:

My name is Matthew and I am the owner/operator of Creature Comforts Pet Sitting of Seattle. I am a former resident of Seattle from 2005-2009, when I was laid off in the Finance world because of the economic downturn. I then relocated to Charlotte, NC in order to secure a finance job in one of the biggest financial centers in the US. After having some interviews, I then attended a pet fair and saw some pet sitting company booths. Having always wanted to work with animals, I started doing the necessary research on how to form a pet sitting company. I had hired pet sitters in Seattle before, but they never did what I paid them to do, including basic services. On August 1, 2010, Creature Comforts of Charlotte Pet Sitting was born!

However, I always missed Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, so in late 2013, I listed Creature Comforts of Charlotte for sale. Early in 2014 the company sold, and here I am back in Seattle, now the owner of Creature Comforts Pet Sitting of Seattle! We are fully bonded, insured, and First Aid/CPR certified. My background consists of owning Creature Comforts of Charlotte for 3.5 years, volunteering at the local Humane Societies, and in college I was the Vice President of People For Animal Welfare. I am also the very proud parent of my nine year old cat Lucy!
