What our clients are saying (the human ones, on behalf of the furry ones)

We highly recommend Michelle from For the Love of Jobe! For the past eight months, Michelle has provided daily walks for our formerly shy rescue dog, who has blossomed into a self-assured, happy, Brookline resident. Not only is Michelle is extremely dependable and professional, she is extremely attentive to any changes in our dog's behavior, which puts us at east while we are away from home.
Amy, Brookline, MA

For the Love of Jobe is amazing! From the moment I met Michelle on the first appointment, I could tell she loved animals and was going to be great with my cat. I have hired their services in multiple occasions and never been disappointed. She is extremely professional, responsible, and trustworthy. After every visit, she will leave a record of how it went and what she did for your pet. Also, my cat loved her from day one. I highly recommend her for any of your pet care needs!
Madelane T., Brookline, MA

Michelle was so great while taking care of my two cats during a family vacation! It gave me such peace of mind knowing the cats were comfortable in their own home! She was even flexible enough to be at my apartment when some maintenance workers had to get in while I was gone. My cats warmed up to Michelle immediately — one of them the first second she ever walked through the door. I'm planning on using Michelle again this spring for
another trip!
Abigail S., South Boston and Boston, MA

Our dog, Hugo, cannot have a bigger treat then spending time with Michelle at For the Love of Jobe. That's the highest compliment one could give! Michelle is friendly, flexible, and offers a wide range of custom pet services. Don't hesitate to give her a call!
Jessica A., Brookline, MA
I can't say enough about Michelle. She has truly been great! She helped us out in pinch while my fiancé and I were watching our family dog for two months. While we both work downtown and didn't have time to come home during the day, Michelle was there for us! Ollie (our dog) immediately warmed up to her. The days Michelle came we could tell; Ollie was beat from all the running around he did with Michelle. Michelle treated Ollie like he was one of her own, which was totally reassuring especially since we just met. I would recommend Michelle to anyone who has a pup out there that needs a little excitement during their days as well as some genuine TLC!
Samantha T., Boston, MA

I highly recommend For the Love of Jobe to anyone looking for new caregivers for their pets! Michelle loves animals, and it shows in the care she provides. Knowing that Michelle is watching my (very needy and affectionate) cat while I am away puts me at ease. I know he is getting lots of love and attention from her. It means a lot to receive texts, photos, and videos from her as well. Michelle goes above and beyond and even picked up more of my cat's medication from the vet when I was out of town. She is so responsive and flexible and is happy to watch my cat whether I give her lots of notice or very short notice! If your pet is a very important member of your family, Michelle is the right person for you.
Rebecca L., Chestnut Hill, MA

​​For the Love of Jobe has been taking care of my pup for a while now. Lucy Bear LOVES everyone at For the Love of Jobe and always comes back from her time there completely wiped out from all of the fun she's had. She even tries to get into Michelle’s apartment when we are on walks because she misses everyone so much. Lucky for her, I've been traveling a lot! ​If you are looking for overnight care or just a couple of walks a weeks, For the Love of Jobe will be there for you!
Geri B., Brookline, MA

I strongly encourage pet-parents in the Brookline area and beyond to consider For the Love of Jobe — Pet Services to meet all of their fur-family-member care needs. The staff of For the Love of Jobe Pet Services first and foremost is sincere and dedicated animal lovers. They clearly LOVE what they do and my dog can attest to that! Your pet will be treated to attentive and caring sitters who will engage with, feed, and exercise them. As devoted pet-parents themselves, the team at For the Love of Jobe Pet Services will care for your pet as though they are their own. For the Love of Jobe Pet Services sitters are  skilled and experienced in caring for elderly pets and/or pets with special needs. Our aging boxer, Pokey, is on a number of medications for epilepsy, arthritis, and more.While he was in the care of For the Love of Jobe Pet Services, we were able to enjoy an extended family vacation knowing that our "first-born," fur-boy was in receipt of the best of care. It is no stretch  to say that while we were away Pokey enjoyed a vacation himself filled with walks, lap-time snuggles, and plays. I highly recommend the services provided through For the Love of Jobe Pet Services!

Sara S., Brookline, MA

If you ever need a pet-sitter/trainer, you won't find a better place! Michelle Quinn-Davidson is a very professional, responsible, and a loving trainer who will provide the best care for your pet! She is great with animals! When I leave ​my dog with her I know I have nothing to worry about!
Inna L., Brookline, MA

Michelle with For the Love of Jobe took care of our young golden retriever, Henry, during a recent weekend when we went out of town. We couldn't have asked for a better person to care for him! She is friendly and enthusiastic, and she was great with our energetic dog. Michelle was really on top of all the little things (treats, types of play, behavior, medicine) that we might have forgotten to mention, and she made sure everything was consistent for our dog. She
sent regular text messages throughout the weekend with updates and cute pictures, which was so great and kept us from missing him too much! Henry got lots of long walks, play sessions, and most importantly, love. It was clear to us that Michelle truly loves animals and would care for and love our dog like it was her own — what more can you ask for? She also stayed at our house, so we had the peace of mind that Henry wouldn't be alone overnight, like at some kennels. As a bonus, she left our kitchen cleaner than it was when we ​left — truly above and beyond the call of duty. We will absolutely be calling on Michelle and For the Love of Jobe in the future!
Christina M., Brighton, MA

Michelle is super-friendly, honest, trustworthy, and clearly loves animals. If you love your animals, you ​will hire ​Michelle to care for them.
Jonathan S., Brookline, MA

Michelle at For the Love of Jobe is the best dog walker/pet sitter Brookline has to offer! I echo the statements of other reviewers that she is amazing! She provides excellent care to our 5-month-old English bulldog, Penny, and our grumpy five-year-old cat, Leo. Michelle embraces both Penny and Leo as if they were her own and keeps us updated throughout the week on their daily interactions. Michelle has also stayed in our home while we were out of town and looked after Penny and Leo. Michelle set the level of customer service very high for other dog walkers in the area. She is reliable, encourages communication, and provides our animals with love and care. There have been a few times where we have not been able to get home and Michelle has kindly come to the rescue to take our little Penny out.​ As others have noted, Michelle is also a dog trainer. We have noticed such a difference in Penny's behavior since Michelle started click training. It is important to note Penny and Leo also adore Michelle and I know they would say the same if they could type. :) We are so happy we came across ​her Yelp page!
Laura P., ​Boston, MA

Michelle might just be the best dog and house sitter I've ever had. She is meticulous in her carings, leaving detailed daily reports of everything that transpires with my dogs every time she is here. Michelle also sends me texts and photos, keeping in tight communication while I am away. She is not only TOTALLY reliable, but also flexible, as needed. Most importantly, my dogs (3 Havanese) just LOVE her, and she just LOVES them. I feel entirely confident in leaving my home and my dear ​dogs with her and have done so for weeks at a time. I can't recommend her highly enough!
Elinor H., West Roxbury, MA

I was extremely pleased both times she cared for my often needy and unpredictable cat while I was out of town. She texted me pictures of him every couple visits, and did an excellent job cleaning up after him. I felt comfortable leaving for vacation knowing she would be checking in on him!
Ali S., Brighton, MA          

I had Michelle taking care of my two cats for four days and I was very pleased with her. First of all, when you meet her you realize that she really loves animals and that she truly cares about the well-being of your pets. She is totally trustworthy and extremely professional and dependable. She texted me pictures of my cats the first and last days she took care of them and left a Pet Log indicating what she did on each day that she visited. I've had other pet sitters before and none of them reach the quality level that Michelle provides. For me, the bottom line is to have the peace of mind that my cats are in good hands while I'm gone, and with Michelle I definitely have that. I will definitely hire Michelle next time that I'm out of town. Without hesitation, I give her
five stars and I would totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for a pet sitter.
Francisco, Brookline, MA

Michelle is fantastic with my cat Pepper! I'm a little bit of a nervous pet parent, but Michelle takes such good care of Pepper that I know I don't have to worry. She sends photos of him while I'm gone and provides email updates as well as a written daily log of her time with him. She also does a thorough cleaning
of all cat areas, which is much appreciated. She's very trustworthy and completely dependable.

Rachel G., Brookline, MA

Michelle is both professional and personal, knowledgeable and caring. She really knows animal behavior and is able to relate to and care for cats (I have two). She does far more than simply feed-and-play, and I can imagine that her care for dogs is comparable. My first meeting with her involved a thorough
run-through of everything needed for the cats. Beyond that, she then (to my surprise) provided written  records of what she observed and did — way more than any previous cat sitter, professional or not, had ever done. The level of attention and care, even medicine administration where indicated, was extraordinary, even better than a former vet tech who used to help me out when needed. Dealing with alarm systems, even cleaning out water and food bowls without asking, tidying up around litter boxes, making certain that a transport cage would be available and so forth, truly amazing, and very fairly priced. Constraining her client base to Brookline enables the best local attention. My two Maine coons and I are truly lucky to be within her range and quality of service.

Julian F., Brookline

Michelle is the best pet sitter we have ever used. It takes a lot of trust to let someone into your home while you're out of town, especially when a beloved pet's health is in that person's hands. Michelle treats our cat like her own and goes above and beyond what we expect. We had boarded our cat in the past, and he always seemed skiddish and shy afterwards when we brought him home. Because of all the attention Michelle gives him, we come home from our trips to a happy, well-fed cat who is ready to play. I dread the day we have to move to a different city because ​Michelle's services are one of a kind!
Lauren G., Boston, MA

Michelle is phenomenal!! She is professional, knowledgeable, experienced, honest, friendly, trustworthy, and most importantly, she truly loves animals and she will care for your pet as if it were her own. I am a nervous cat parent who had never left my two cats before, but Michelle's daily updates and photos showed me how great they were doing and gave me the peace of mind to enjoy my trip knowing that my cats were in the best possible hands. My cats are shy around new people at first, but Michelle is excellent at reading animals and figuring out what they need, so she quickly got them to warm up to her and, after a couple of days, my cats completely fell in love with her! I came home to very happy cats, a log of their daily ​activities (in addition to the daily emails!), a freshly changed litter box, and all of the cat supplies perfectly washed and clean. Michelle is the best pet sitter imaginable and I am incredibly grateful to live in Brookline and be her client. I will use Michelle ​every time I need to leave town from now on, and I know my cats are already looking forward to spending time with her next ​time I go away!
Rachel R., Brookline, MA

My family and I couldn't be happier with Michelle's services. She is phenomenal. She stayed in our home for a week while we were on vacation and cared for our dog and our daughter's dog. They're big black labs, and she exercised them, played with them, and loved them as her own. We appreciated the occasional photos and texts and Michelle's incredible attention to detail. She immediately bonded with both dogs and quickly "read" their personalities and responded to their individual needs. She also took great care of our house; it was wonderful to come back to a neat house and happy dogs. Michelle is a delight to work with: she is ​professional, personable, reliable and trustworthy. Can't recommend her highly enough.
