  1. I have been a customer of Alternative Pet Services (APS) for 8+ years. All of my dawgs (past and present) are always so excited to see Duane. Along with daily visits from time to time, I use APS for vacation/holiday getaways as I have never kenneled my dawgs; they get to stay in their environment and I have no worries. I have also had the occasion for unplanned/last minute visits - no problem! Duane also leased trained my current German Shepherd so I might walk him myself as well as numerous other training tips. I had used other pet sitting services in Indy and none compare to APS!!

  2. Duane is a top notch pet sitter, he does a great job in caring for our kitty and we have used him for at least 4 years now. I would highly recommend Duane and Alternative Pet Services. It's so nice to know that when we leave town, our baby is cared for and he will care for our home too. Takes the mail in, waters plants, sets the alarm, etc. He will always send a photo of our baby too and give an update on how she is doing while we are away. Thank you Duane for all that you do!!!

  3. My dogs are very "selective" about who they allow in the house. Duane and our oldest, a male kuvasz, hit it off immediately. We are so fortunate to have somebody we can trust and who has always found time to help out even at the last minute! Thank you Duane!

  5. Duane has watched our furkids for years now when we are out of town or can't make it home from work in time. Our "kids" love him, even the ones that are tentative with other people. One time he even went to the northeast side to pick up one of our dogs at the vet after he had a freak accident the night before we left on vacation for a week. He has always answered our messages and has been able to extend his services on the rare occasions we couldn't make it back when originally scheduled.

  7. Outstanding customer service! Prompt and reliable service every time. Would recommend to anyone. We had a very challenging situation with one of our rescue dogs and Alternative Pet Services had the skills and experience to win our pup over.

  8. I have used Alternative Pet Services weekly for around 8 years. I have never been disappointed. Duane is tireless in the care of animals. He has always been available even on holidays. I have the upmost confidence that my dog and my home are in good hands. I even left my dog for 2 weeks to go to Africa, knowing she would be well cared for. Plus, on the off chance something does go awry, Duane is quick to contact me. Highly recommend this company for the care of your pets!

  9. We have used Duane & Alternative Pet Services for over 12 years and have never had a bad experience. Our animals are always happy to see him and think of Duane as one of the family. I don't know what we would do without him

  10. Duane has been working for me about a year now. I think he's the best dog sitter and dog walker I've ever had! He's always on time, he walks my dogs in the rain, in the snow, it doesn't matter, they get their walk. He has never called and said he can't make it. He's always willing to come another day or a 2nd time during the day if I need him. He feeds them and lets them in and out when I need him to. Duane and Alternative Pet Services are the best and I would (and do!) highly recommend them.

  11. Duane has taken care of my kitties for 6 or 7 years now? I hate leaving my furballs but I am 100% confident that Duane takes care of not only my cats but my house as well. I can travel with no worries.

  12. Duane is great! He has always been super flexible and able to work with my very last minute schedule. He comes mainly to be sure my dogs are taken care of, but always gives my kitties and chickens a ton of attention too!

  13. I have had Alternative Pet Services watch my dog several times. Whether for a week long vacation or 1 to 2 day overnight trip, my dog is always well adjusted and comfortable when I return from the attention that Duane gives to him in my absence. I used have my dog stay with friends or family, but there was always an adjustment period for my dog when we returned home. Having my dog be able stay in a his own comfortable environment, with all my personal things around him, gives him more security. I don't like the idea of someone staying in my home as a housesitter when i'm gone, and I don't need to crate my dog while I'm away. Using the 3 visits a day to works best with his regular routine.

  14. I have used Duane for over 10 years. He is very reliable & definitely treats the pets he cares for as his own. He helped me through a very difficult time with my last dog, Dawson. I had to put my 12 year old greyhound down after a lengthy illness. Duane felt like he lost a friend too. I also like that Duane is a one man show, no hired help to do the visits. I highly recommend his service.

  15. Have been with Duane and Alternative Pet Services from the beginning. I don't worry about pet care while out of town because I know Duane will be attending to their needs, including some TLC, when I'm gone. Would recommend Alternative Pet Services without reservation.

  16. I have used this company regularly in the past and have never been let down. Duane is respectful, prompt and my dogs were always well cared for. My only regret is that I've moved outside his service area but he would be my go-to person to take care of my dear pets!

  17. I highly recommend Duane Greene for any of pet care service!!! Duane goes above & beyond to ensure the comfort and daily routine continues for your pet. He is willing to workout a schedule that best fits you & your pet. Any time my pets were in his care, I never had to worry about their care or safety. He loves the animals and treats them as if they were his own& my pets were always happy upon my return home. Additionally, I had a family emergency out of state, Duane was right there ready to help. If you want affordable, quality care ( and happy pets), call Alternative Pet Service.

  18. We've used Duane for about 8 years. He's the best. He loves our kids as much as we do. He's had to handle diabetic cats, epileptic dogs and many other strange issues. He's always been there for us. Duane also has gone above and beyond for us. I had a terrible accident on one of our vacations and needed to have certain equipment at the house when got back to the US. He worked with my family and had everything set for us when we got back. That was such a huge relief. I can't imagine entrusting the care of my pets and house to anyone else.
