    I have been a loyal customer of Pet Parlor for several years. I feel extremely comfortable entrusting my pets to their care. Pat has never cancelled on me and is available on very short notice. She took care of my dog and cat while I was out of town for about 9 days, she gave me regular updates and when I got home, my animals were happy and healthy. So much better than boarding!!!! I will never have to board an animal again thanks to Pet Parlor. Bev Novak

    I have known Pat for over 15 years, we worked in the same veterinary practice in Munster, IN. She is a very responsible, kind and caring individual. I have used her services many times and she is always there when I need her. My dogs absolutely love her and she always leaves notes on how they have done. Her latest visit included her looking in on my litter of 6 week old Vizsla puppies while I had to be away for the day. I whole heartedly recommend Pat and The Pet Parlor services. Michael Walsh, DVM

    I have known Pat for 18 years and she has been watching our critters for over 10! She is absolutely amazing!!! Pat is kind hearted, compassionate, and reliable. It’s really wonderful to be able to travel and not have to worry about our pets because we know they are in excellent care! I am so lucky to have Pat as my pet sitter. I would never want to leave my pets in a cold cage in a place not their home where they would be so scared. I trust Pat 100%! Thank you Pat!!!

    Pat took care of our 3 dogs for 6 years when we lived in the area. She did an AMAZING job! We never worried about our fur kids whether we were gone for a day or a week because we knew she would take wonderful care of them. Then our Rottie became chronically ill. Pat went above and beyond keeping us updated on how she was doing and making sure she received every medication she needed right on schedule when we couldn’t be home. Pat is truly a top notch pet sitter in every aspect. She is kind, caring and compassionate. We can’t say thank you enough for the wonderful care she took of our dogs. It was like losing a member of our family when we moved out of state.

    In 2006 I went through the devasting loss of my sister. She was retired and I worked in Chicago. We had three loving rescue four-legged children. I thought I was going to lose my mind over my loss and worrying about how I could care for Frizette, Rudy and Wheedle when I was gone from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. every work day. And then a miracle appeared bearing the name of Pat Thompson. She took such fantastic care of my kids, made sure they got outside breaks, fresh water, treats and lots of loving. I came home at night to happy, healthy, unstressed pets. I could not have done this without Pat. She was always there for us if I had to work late, or needed advice on care or put me on notice if she noted anything about my pets she thought might need attention. She was there to help me get through the horrible ordeal of having to put my sweet Frizette out of her misery when her kidneys failed. My kids just loved her and I always knew Pat cared deeply for all of those animals entrusted to her care, it just oozed out her. She was so trustworhy and knowledgeable, and professional in all her Pet Parlor dealings. I retired and then had to move to another town and I would almost kill to get the Pet Parlor and the Thompson crew to move closer to me inasmuch arthritis has made it impossible for me walk a pet let alone chase them around the yard or roll on the floor playing with them. I was so spoiled by the top quality care provided by Pet Parlor I don’t even know where to start looking for a replacement. You simply will not find a pet care facility or crew the would do a finer job.

    While living in Hammond, I used The Pet Parlor exclusively. Huntly adored Pat and her staff, and I always knew that everything was fine, even on those short notice days. I strongly recommend Pat as a caring loving pet sitter and if I were still in the area, she would be go-to pet service.

  8. Jodi Kosary

    Pat was our dog walker for our yellow lab Rudy when we lived in Lansing. We were gone 10 hours a day for work and that was too long to leave Rudy in his crate. Pat would come faithfully every day to let him out, let him play, do his business and give him attention and love. We moved and really miss having Pat as our dog walker.

  9. Laura Tyler

    Pat was the sitter for my little Pekingese (Baby) for years and I always knew I could trust in taking care of her. From the first time I met her and I knew I could trust her and baby adored her. My little one was on a special diet and Pat always got it right and loved spending time with her. Believe me I never had another pet sitter for Baby, I just know that no one could live up to Pat and her standards ! After Baby passed on I received some very lovely words from her and I know she just misses my little one.

  10. Terry Pawloski

    Pat is a wonderful person and pet sitter. You can relax and know your pet is being taken care of very well. She is trustworthy and dependable . You couldn’t get any better than Pat and the Pet parlor.

  11. Melissa Semrau

    I had Pat as a pet sitter for my furry family when i had met her when living in Hammond. She was so wonderful that I can call her a great person and friend. I looked forward to her coming to visit for the other animal needs as I was quite sick at the time. I never gave her enough credit for what she did for us so we could get away for awhile, I realized what a godsend she was after we moved away. It was so nice to reconnect lately, she became a trusted friend for us and an extension of our family. I would recommend her to others for their furry family needs!

  12. Tracy Behrens

    What can I say? Pat is the greatest. On her first visit, my black Labrador decided he was going to not let Pat in – he was panicky and stood at the door giving her a low scared growl. She must have taken an hour getting in – she actually got on her knees and ‘had conversation’ with my Capone until he finally let her in – anybody else would have left instantly. Capone and Baby girl loved Pat, she even let me know how sick my Baby Girl was when I was out of town. They both passed shortly after, and we finally have a new crew… Pat is on my speed dial, she is professional, flexible, completely trustworthy and competent. I’ve never even considered looking somewhere else for somebody else to care for my babies. It’s SO important for me that the kids get to stay home when we leave – I will NOT board my dogs – The Pet Parlor is the PERFECT solution!! Thanks Pat!!

  13. Maureen Clarke

    We have used the Pet Parlor for well over 13 years. She has taken care of our cats everytime we needed her to. She even gave our one cat, Portia her diabetes shot while we were out of town. She is trustworthy and loving and caring to our cats. We are always confident that our animals are well looked after. She even brings in our mail and keeps a watch on our house too. I would highly recommend Pat Thompson to watch your animal.

  14. Joan Lofgren

    I have to agree with all these great testimonials. I don’t think you will ever find a more caring, loving and competent pet sitter than Pat. I am now in a position where I desparately need a special pet sitter but I have had to move to a town too far away for Pat to care for my beloved Wheedle. I can only pray that God will get her closer to me or send me her twin. I read her comments every day and reaffirm how special she is. Anyone out there looking for the perfect, special individual to love, care for, and watch over your pet – contact the Pet Parlor and introduce youself to this extrodinary human being gong by the name of Pat Thompson!!!

  15. Carrie Bhasin

    Pat is great! We can always count on Pat to walk our dog Jack when we are out of town or if we just need him to have a break mid-day. Pat is very flexible with our family’s busy schedule and is always willing to help given short notice.

  16. Renee

    Pat has been looking after the girls since 2013. I trust Pat, because my girls love her. Pat has done daily potty breaks for us and she watches the girls any time we are out of town. Pat is an extended member of our family and I know that she is kind and loving to the girls. Emmy is a special needs baby; she is deaf. Pat is patient and loving.

  17. Patti Van Til

    Pat and the Pet Parlor are the best ever. Pat is caring, kind, affectionate and loving to the pets she cares for. Pat has been my pet sitter for many years. When going away to enjoy yourself it is so nice to know that your pet is in Pat’s care. No worries. There can’t be anyone out there who does it better. Pat provides the BEST quality care, walking, playing and hugging for her doggie clients!!

  19. Karen Cichocki

    Pat watched out 4 dogs and 1 cat while we were on vacation. They loved her as evidenced by the daily photos she sent. Everything was fine when we got home. I wouldn’t want to board them or have anyone else watch them. She was great!!

We'd love to hear your opinions and suggestions!
