Excellent Pet Care

Dee Cora has taken care of our cat Lily on two separate occasions and we can tell she paid a lot of attention and catered to Lily's eccentricities. We let Dee know what Lily likes, how she likes to be comforted, how she plays, her food preferences, etc..., and we can tell Dee spent quality time with her because when we get back, Lily is not mad at us and not stressed at all - just happy to see us.

Thank you Dee!

“Everyone at Distinctive Pet Care has been amazing and taken such great care of Layla! Thank you Niki, Erin and Cass!” – Elizabeth D

“My pups Reece and Libby were taken care by Kathy MacKnight and she did an excellent job texting not only how they were but with photos – I’d definitely use her again and again and again.” – Barbara A

“Again, Patty W. did an outstanding job!  She took such good care of all our animals. (3 dogs, 1 cat, bearded dragon & mouse!)  She truly is the BEST!  She always goes above and beyond and she is such a pleasure to work with, we love her!  Please be sure to give her this extra and let her know how pleased we are with her service!” – Sharon from Littleton, CO (posted 1/2013)

“My wife and I are new to the area and our vet, Bouton, referred us to your service. During the Christmas Holidays, we hired one of your pet sitters Debbie Hall. From the moment we met her, we really felt comfortable and saw that she loves pets. We have three cats with very different personalities and left her instructions on feeding and how to approach them. During our time away, we would receive text messages about her visit and how our little girls were doing. We loved that she included that they got petted and loved during her visits. Upon our return, we loved that there was a written log of her visits, and the best part was she left “treats” and toys for our little girls. We love the service and will continue to use it when we cannot take our cats with us. Thank you so much!” – Rob and Taniea from Littleton (Isabella, Sofia & Boots too!)  Posted 1/2013

“Thank you so much for your excellent care and service.  Debbie is great…what a blessing to travel and not worry about my Lily.  Please keep my key for future needs.” – Marga from Littleton, Co  (posted 9/2012)



“Thanks again for the great care you gave the boys.  Monti seems so relaxed and has not been nipping at all!  Thanks for giving him some additional attention, he needed it the most since he has been having a hard time with the new baby. Patty was so wonderful, we were able to go on vacation and know our pets were in good hands.  The daily texts and pictures of our pets looking so happy and relaxed in their own home were great!   We will request Patty again in the future, she even cleaned our dirty dishes in the sink!!!” – Sharon from Littleton, CO (posted 8/2012)


“Wonderful service!  Could not have done without it.  Patty was very nice!  Thank you! – Audra from Denver, CO  (posted 7/2012)

“Rocky has some specific issues due to his background as a stray, Patty showed great concern and follows up with some good suggestions, (thanks to the Homeopet Anxiety Relief) his anxiety level was good when we returned.” – Michael & Nancy from Littleton, CO  (posted 6/2012)

“Patty,  thank you for taking care of Cookie!  She looks great!  I was serious when I said she was disappointed when she saw us and not you!  Her fur looks beautiful and she is really good!  Thank you so much for the great care you gave her!!” – John & Betty from Littleton, CO (posted 5/2012)

“This was a 1st time for us to be away from Amber & Cocoa for a long trip. It seems like they were in excellent hands. Thanks to Debbie for her care. We’ll do it again with you for our next trip!” – Walt & Sheri from Littleton, CO (posted 10/2011)



“I really appreciate the personal care your service offers; the ease of contacting any of you and your prompt responses, the initial visit, the notes each sitter leaves after every visit and especially the text messages after each visit – non-invasive but complete peace of mind.

These ladies obviously love what they do and it shows. I think your service is A-1 and I am SO happy to have found you and your caring sitters (my whole family thanks you all, too)!!” – Gary, Simon & Honey from Littleton, CO (posted 8/2011)


“Dear Dawn,

Thank you for being able to fill in on such extremely short notice! If Debbie hadn’t been able to just step in, I probably would have waited to go to the ER and the results could have been disasterous!! Also, thank you for the roses. They really brightened my day when I got home from the hospital stay. I can’t thank you enough!” – Kim C. from Littleton, CO

“Debbie, I read your note about Maizy not eating well. I was concerned and took her to the vet….she had eaten some thread which was attached to her tooth and also tangled in her intestines. She had surgery that night,and is now recovering well. Thank you for paying attention to her change in behavior.” – George H. from Littleton, CO (posted 7/2011)

“We’ve used Distinctive Pet Care for years and have always been thrilled with the services they provide. They love our cat as much as we do.” – Sally W. from Littleton, CO (posted 12/2010)

“I can not say enough about Dawn Olson and her business, Distinctive Pet Care, Inc. My beloved Benny was a 12-year-old Golden Retriever, he had arthritis in his hips and back and would have trouble getting up and down along with more serious health issues as he got older. Dawn would come to my home and take care of Benny while I went to work. She would feed him, give him his meds, pet him and take him outside for potty. I felt so relieved when she arrived that I could go off to work and not worry about my boy.

She made Benny’s last days very comfortable and I couldn’t have gone through this period without her help. She’s a true angel when it comes to taking care of our pets.” – Susie M. Littleton, CO
