Call Now Button
When my husband and I purchased a second residence in Arlington in 2006. I immediately began a search for a pet sitter in Arlington.
Since I did not know anyone in the area who used a pet sitter, I turned to the yellow pages and contacted several sitters listed in the phone book. Noreen was the only one who called me back. I immediately liked her promptness, positive attitude, and the confidence in her voice. She and I set up a time with her to visit our high maintenance bearded collie, Merlin. She took thorough notes about what our expectations were for the visits. My husband and I left for our first extended weekend visit shortly after our first visit. Noreen took care of Merlin, the mail, and watered our plants. After I made the statement that we also had a kitty, Sox, that I left in Waco with another pet sitter, she insisted that I try leaving the two pets together on our next trip. The three of them did great on our next trip as well as many others.
The weekend before we had a European trip planned in 2012, Merlin experienced some usual symptoms. After a trip to three veterinarians, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Noreen was just as upset as we were that we had to say good-bye to him. The week after we returned from our trip, we contacted our breeder about another bearded collie. She did not have any puppies, but she offered us a replacement 7 year old female.
Noreen and Sophie bonded on their first visit even though the puppies were entirely different. Noreen quickly adapted to the walking routine that Sophie expected. Until we sold the residence in 2015, I took Sophie as well as Sox to Arlington so Noreen could take care of them when we were away. Noreen always made the ultimate effort to make sure the pets needs were met and gave my husband and me peace of mind when we were away from them.

“I have used Pet Sitting 1 for many years and she has always done a perfect job with my dogs. One of my dogs has been a diabetic for a long time and they have done a great job giving him his shots. Missing those shots would be very bad news for my dog, so I trust Pet Sitting 1 as I would a close family member to care of my pets. I would highly recommend Pet Sitting 1 to anyone and am glad I know Noreen.” Frank P.
“Noreen has been such a big part of helping to raise our sweet baby Carlos to be the little gentleman he is today. As a full-time working Mom, we would not have been able to get a puppy without having Noreen care for him during the day. Noreen has helped with potty training and training, in general. She is very loving and treats the babies like they are her own. I love when she sends pictures, so I know what he is up to. I highly recommend Noreen for mid-day visits, a sitter while you are out of town, and anything else you need related to your pet!”
“Pet Sitting 1 is the best. Our dogs love her and 1 of them is a brat that doesn’t love a lot of people.
I feel great knowing our “babies” are happy and well cared for when we are gone. She even texts us pictures and updates!” Eli Griffin
“I just love having a trustworthy person to look after my babies while I am away, and Noreen Gregory is just the one to do it! Noreen has pet sat for me since around 2006, and I never have to worry about whether my doggies and kitties have been fed or let outside for potty breaks or taken great care of! She even cleans up their accidents!!! I will always use her!!! Thank you Noreen!
Love, Julie . . . and Teddy, Cody, Annie, Smokey, Roxie and Pepper; and also Sweetpea and Bailey (RIP).” –Julie Anast
“We have been using Noreen now for 10 years. When we are away from home, it is comforting to know that Noreen will be there to take care of our furry family members. it can be hard to find someone trustworthy and we are so glad to have found her and so are our kitties!.” –P. Allen
“We have been using Noreen’s petsitting service for several years, and we wholeheartedly recommend her! At one point we had 2 cats and 2 dogs, so we were happy they could stay together in the comforts of home instead of being boarded. Knowing that she was always available gave us one less thing to worry about when traveling.” –Rebecca Bauer
“Noreen was recommended to me by my veterinarian and she has been pet sitting my Casey, Kelly and Molly ever since. They love Noreen and, therefore, so do I. She has always worked with me to accommodate my spoiled dogs and I always know they are being well taken care of. She is completely dependable and I recommend her highly.” Pat Culver
Noreen has been our pet sitter for many years, and has always done a terrific job. We never worried about any of our pets while we were away. We recently went for about a 6-month period without any pets, after our last kitty passed on, but we have just adopted 2 of my daughter’s cats, and will be back to calling Noreen again to take care of our new babies when we go out of town. Thank you, Noreen, for always doing such a great job for us! – Cathy Alexander
“We’ve been using The Pets Place for several years and I completely trust that my dog is in good hands when we’re away. She really cares about my dog. We’ve had to be away when my dog required wound care and they gave the time and attention needed for our dog’s post-surgical care. She texts or sends pictures to keep us informed and comfortable being away.” The Sullivans
Noreen took care of our 3 fur-kiddos while we traveled, she did a great job! The dogs bonded with her right away.
It was so nice the dogs could stay home, then we could relax and enjoy our trip.
Thank you so much!

“PS 1 and their staff are always dependable for our visits. I work long hours and the dogs love their walks with Noreen! Thanks for your reliability and loving Chaos and Beasley as much as I do!” Meredith Hulsey
Noreen is practically part of our family. She has cared for our dogs ( lizards, fish, and sand crabs) for more than 15 years and our pets adore her. Noreen is reliable, gentle and kind. She has been careful with the medication and needs of our older, disabled pets and kept a watchful eye on the young playful ones.
When our Boston, Daisy, had an unexpected seizure, Noreen rushed her to our vet and got her the medication she needed. Noreen goes above and beyond pet sitting.
She gets our mail, cleans any pet messes and watches after our house. She’s even met the police at our house after an alarm went of to make sure our babies were safe and inside. We can enjoy our vacations knowing that she is holding down the fort.
She gives us peace of mind and that is priceless. - Michelle Lindsay
“The Pets Place was my favorite when I lived in TX. Noreen was so dependable that I had no worries. Great peace of mind when I had to travel for business.” Donna Henry
I have known Noreen for over fifteen years. She has been caring for our cats when we go on vacation or a weekend away. I never have any concerns while I am away as she is caring, dependable and an expert with animals. My absence from my cats do not seem to bother them since she gives them the attention and love they need. I would not have anyone else come in my home or care for my kitties. I hope she never retires! Mary Ferland
“Noreen Gregory is a great pet sitter. She has owned her business for 20ish years. I have known her and worked for her for about 15 years. She has found her passion and truly loves and takes care of her “families”. Know that when you are away, your babies are being loved and cared for.” Merri Hausmann Meriwether
