"Using Substitute Sidekicks with my dog worked great.  Betsy did a great job of clearly explaining her service, and followed through on everything.  Substitute Sidekicks is a very reliable service run by a professional, caring woman." 

-Cameron Paulk


"I had a wonderful experience using Substitute Sidekicks to take care of my dog.  Betsy came over the day before to meet him and he liked her from the minute she walked in the door.  She kept me posted on when she walked, fed and played with him.  She left a report card, some dog treats and even texted me a picture! I will definitely continue to use the service and recommend Substitute Sidekicks to all my friends and neighbors."

"I have nothing but the best of words to say about Betsy and the way she's helped me out in a pinch for my dog Happy.  I've had last minute business meetings out of state and she's always found time to come over and take her out for walks and make sure she's fed.  She always sends photos to reassure me that my pup is doing great and makes it easier for me to relax.  I highly recommend Betsy to anyone in need of her services and don't forget to ask about Mack Attack!"

"Betsy is amazing! She has a true passion for taking care of other's pets and she treats them as they are her own! When I met Betsy, without a doubt, I felt so comfortable with her taking care of my dogs from the very start.  My dogs fell in love with Betsy and look forward to her taking care of them.  She gives updates every visit which I love.  What a relief to go away and know your animals are in such great care!!!"

"Substitute Sidekicks watched our 3 dogs while we were out of the country this month. Betsy's care and attention to detail was above and beyond! We were extremely happy to receive daily pictures of our happy dogs and updates on their well-being.  Definitely call if you are in the Annapolis/ Arnold/ Severna Park area!"
