Our dog was diagnosed with a terminal illness two weeks before we were to leave on vacation. We had booked peaceful pets for home visits since boarding space wasn't available at the time we booked. After we told them of his diagnosis, they offered to board him. By the time we left, our dog wasn't eating his dry food anymore, we were cooking chicken and rice for him, buying special canned food and fresh chicken liver. While he was there, he picked at his food and sometimes turned it down altogether so they hand fed him! They also sent us pictures and a progress report every day. When they brought him home, they also brought some special food for him that is made by a local merchant. We wouldn't think of leaving our pet with anyone else. We have never had pet sitters as compassionate and caring as James, Dana and their staff. They are the best in Sacramento, hands down.
