Early on he came twice a day to give him potty breaks. Luke has been
a friendly and reliable dog walker, and it's obvious he really loves
animals. Some days they walk and some they play catch, and it's a
good feeling to go to work knowing my dog is having fun. I highly
recommend Gentle Hearts Pet sitting."

"You have helped us out immensely! It hasn't been easy to find
someone we really trust to take care of our special-needs dog (as well
as our other dog and our cat). Whenever we use your services, we
have to worry at all! Gentle Hearts Pet Sitting is the best. I won't
hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a reliable, caring
pet sitter."  
Lily, Scrappy (puppers), & Paul (kitty)
"I am so pleased to have found Luke and his associates at Gentle
Hearts.  Having recently gotten an 8-year-old "puppy", there were a
lot of issues, foreseen and unforeseen that came with helping her
adjust to her new, very different environment.  Luke spent a great
deal of time listening, offering insights and problem-solving based on
his volume of experience with dogs.  As a result, Toska's transition
has gone very smoothly.  She is SO happy to have Luke take such
good care of her when I'm out of town or for her once a day walk,
peace knowing she is in superior hands and heart with Gentle Hearts.
Thank you!"  
Cindy - Toska (puppers)
"Luke & Carol have been walking our 3 dogs for 6 months.  They
have never missed a walk.  They are loved by our pups as evidenced
by their enthusiastic greeting.  I do not hesitate having Luke and
Carol come into our home in our absence to care for our dogs. They
have been life savers!"  
       Jenifer -  Ebony, Tabitha, & Muppet (puppers) of Park Hill
"Gentle Hearts has been great!  I travel for work, sometimes on very
short notice, but they have always been able and willing to
accommodate my needs.  Since using their service, Murdoch's been
much happier during my absences."                                        
                                                      Shane - Murdoch (kitty)

worry!  They are well taken care of with Luke.

my heavy travel schedule!  I highly recommend Gentle Hearts Pet
                                                  Jim - Czech, Ariel, Vrz & Jasper
"I found Luke and Gentle Hearts when my regular pet sitter cancelled
on us two days before a two day trip to Australia.  We were panicked
about finding someone to watch our overly-indulged cat, Mesa.  Luke
called me back right away and came over to meet us that night.  Mesa
and Luke formed a nice bond while we were away and we have used
Luke and Gentle Hearts ever since."
                                                     Ellen - Mesa (kitty)

me when I'm gone."

animals love all the employees.  I feel comfortable knowing they are in
good hands with Gentle Hearts."
Liz & Brian - Auggie, Molly (puppers) & George (kitty) of Park Hill
"It is such a relief to know that I can call on Gentle Hearts when I
need them.  From the very beginning , their love and concern for my
dogs was evident.  It is so nice to be able to leave my pets in the
comfort and security of their own home and not have to haul them off
to the kennel every time, especially when I know they are in such
good hands.  I also love coming home and reading the funny and
sweet notes detailing how things went while I was gone.  I trust them
with my pets and my home and I would highly recommend them to
anyone needing petsitting services."
Marcy - Fern & Layla (puppers)
"Luke and team are great.  My dog and cat are both well cared for
and happy whenever Gentle Hearts takes care of them.  Also, I fully
trust the team to come in and out of my home when I am gone!"
Kathy - Madi (puppy) & Bagheera (kitty)
"I started using Gentle Hearts because my schedule prevented me
from getting home in time to let my pup out.  My work schedule  is
back to normal, and I've moved as well, but we use Gentle Hearts
because I love knowing  that Buddy gets a mid-day walk.  He is so
much calmer when I come home and I know he loves Carol a ton!  
Gentle Hearts really does provide a great service!"
Juli - Buddy (puppers) of the Highlands
"Dear Luke, sometimes 'Thank you' just doesn't cut it.  You have
been so wonderful and the boys
LOVE you!  Our schedule has been
crazy and you have always been so gracious with our last minute calls
and changes."

"After using neighbors for many years for watching Syd, we had to
hire a service as they all moved away.  We had  a coupon for one, but
they all were out of business when we called.  Gentle Hearts was the
second on the list.  Luke came over and met us and Syd.  She is not
the friendliest cat, but with Luke's patience and kind heart, she is
finally coming around to him.  I never have to worry about our home,
our home or our cat- she is in great hands."  Short notice trips are
never an issue with Luke. He is always ready to go in a moment's
notice, and we thank him for that!  We have given out Gentle Hearts
information on numerous occasions, and will continue to do so!"
Michael & Marcus - Sydney (kitties) of City Park

Luke takes great care of him."

Vivian - Carmi (puppers) of Downtown
"Luke and Carol are great.  Knowing my Sunna is in good hands
when I can't be home is everything to me.  Some days I get stuck at
the office and Luke and Carol are wonderful in taking care of Sunna,
even on late notice. They are lifesavers."
                                              Julie - Sunna (puppers)
"Valentine and I are so happy to have found Gentle Hearts.  Gentle
Hearts helped us get through two knee-surgeries this Summer. And
now we just have Luke come over because we love to take walks
everyday and love to have kind visitors during the day!  Thank you
Gentle Hearts for everything!"

"Its always hard to go away when you have pets.  I've been using "Its
always hard to go away when you have pets.  I've been using Luke at
Gentle Heats for my last couple of trips and couldn't be more Luke at
Gentle Heats for my last couple of trips and couldn't be more
satisfied.  My dogs love him, he shows up when he's supposed to (I
checked with my neighbors) and he is very respectful and
responsible, just a great guy!"

Collie Joey was in love with them.  We travel all of the time and it is
"Gentle Hearts is perfect for our family of two dogs and 20 fish.  We
very comforting knowing Gentle Hearts is taking care of our family.  
We will never use anyone else."
 Whit - Phenix & Joey (puppers)
"Luke and Co. are awesome!  I absolutely trust them with my pets
lives!  They absolutely appreciate how wonderful my pets are and get
their personality quirks.  Every time I come home from a trip, my dogs
are so calm and relaxed, which is so different from other pet services I
have used. We have many pets.  One of our dogs has special needs
(he's completely blind) and the other is very unfriendly to strangers,
yet Luke and Co. have won them over.  I would recommend them
without any hesitation."
                          Holly & Rob - Giovanni & Gezzebelle (puppers)
"I discovered Luke and Gentle Hearts when I first moved to Denver in
the summer of 2009.  I had to go out of town and didn't know anyone
well enough in the city to ask them to look in on my cat J.J.  A simple
Google search led me to Luke.  I felt comfortable and confident in
leaving J.J. in Luke's care as soon as we met for the meet and greet,
and J.J. loved him too.  I did not hesitate to refer Gentle Hearts to
friends as they are just as pleased as I am with the level of service
and professionalism.  I love the daily reports my petsitter leaves after
each visit so that I have a snapshot of how things went while I was
away.  It's a comfort knowing that Luke and his team are taking care
of my pet and my home when I am out of town.  I feel lucky to have
found their services!"
Shannon - J.J. (kitty) of Capitol Hill
"Y'all do a great job.  Thanks for taking care of Gus & Sam. Gentle
Hearts makes me feel comfortable that my dogs are being well cared
for when I am out of town.  They do an outstanding job!"
Ali - Gus & Sam (puppers)
"I have had the pleasure of working with Luke & Carol and I have
never met two more patient and caring people.  My two year old
mixed-breed is very fearful of people that he doesn't know.  Both Luke
& Carol have gone above and beyond to ensure that my dog is
comfortable and have put in an extraordinary amount of effort to work
him through his fears.  I feel extremely blessed to have found such
wonderful caregivers for my best bud who requires a little more than
your average Lassie."
Katie - Jobie (puppers) of South Pearl
"As a resident doctor, my schedule changes frequently and Luke is
always able to accommodate me.  It is a relief to know there is
working long hours.  I come home to dogs that are happy after their
daily walks.  Thanks Luke for a great job."
                                                  Rachel - Tank & Foxy (puppers)
"My little Stanley is always happy to see me when I get home, but I
can tell he was well taken care of while I was away. And my home
never feels like someone else has been in it; it's always left the way it
was when I left. Thank you for all your excellent work and kind
