“Julia was so professional. She kept us updated twice a day on our dog’s routines - with pictures. We knew he was getting great care. Excellent and prompt communications. 5 stars!!”
“The girls were happy and well cared for. Best experience I’ve had for a while using river. Also took care of my home! Will use again!”

“I was nervous to leave my cat, as I have never left her with a non-family member before, but Mary was wonderful! Mary came by before the trip and was great with my cat. She updated me during the trip, and when I returned, my cat seemed very relaxed and content. I will definetely be booking again!”
“Emily was so helpful and attentive to what we were looking for in a sitter and what our dogs needed. It was an excellent visit with great communication. We would definitely book with her again!!”
“Rebecca is simply the best! She takes such wonderful care of our pups and our home while we are away. I never worry a minute. I highly recommend her and her services!”
“Rosey watched our cavapoo Dusty in our home for a week while we went on a cruise. We got many updates, pictures and the house was just as we left it when we got back. Dusty had a great time and our home was well taken care of. I would recommend Rosey to anyone for their house or pet sitting needs!”

About: I’ve watched many different breeds of dogs for neighbors, family, and friends for the last few years and have cat sit for several friends. I’m super reliable, trustworthy, and love to meet new pets. I currently work 9-5 during the week but work from home so my schedule is very flexible. I am an early riser and generally have evening and weekend availability! In my current apartment, I’m not allowed to have a pet :( Growing up, I’ve always had dogs and cats and making sure they were always safe, comfortable, and receiving plenty of attention and affection was super important for me. I like to be firm but caring with my own animals.
“Kris was great! She took excellent care of my pets and kept me informed of their walks and activities. Kris sent pictures and was communicative both before and during her stay. I definitely recommend her and hope to book her services again.”
“Diego took great care of our pup. He was very good at keeping us updated while we were away and included many pictures in his updates. Our house was clean and tidy when we returned home.”
“Sarah is a wonderful, responsible pet sitter, dog walker, and loving pet caregiver. Sarah has taken care of my dog Jake while I was in Europe and my son was working. Sarah would come and take Jake for walks and sit with him and love him. Jake died and later I adopted two puppies. Sarah has taken care of them when I'm out of town. She even comes to visit them when I'm home and loves on them and plays with them. My dogs love Sarah because they know she loves them. She is very trustworthy and I give her a key to my house. You will not find a better pet caretaker than Sarah.”
“Emily is fantastic. She and my pup bonded immediately. She went the extra mile, was a great communicator and was so easy and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend!”
“We have had Mary Katherine watch our dogs and cat twice now and each time she has been dependable, and sends updates and photos frequently while we’re away. Would highly recommend!”
“We felt at complete ease with our fur babies in Mariah’s care. She is an excellent communicator and checked in frequently with updates about our puppies. Mariah walked them often sent a steady stream of pictures and videos of our dogs. She enjoyed playing with them and kept up with their high energy/big dog personalities! She even vacuumed under the couch and retrieved toys from the “toy graveyard.” We will definitely ask Mariah to care for our dogs in the future!”
“Victoria is super sweet and helpful! I felt so comfortable leaving my dogs with her.”
“Avantae stayed with our 2 dogs and 3 cats for 3 nights last weekend and did a fantastic job. The house was clean and tidy when we got home and she gave us updates each day, which I really appreciate. But I am most appreciative of the fact that she was a pro at handling our 110 lb. 1 year old rescue Saint Bernard, who came from a bad situation just a few months ago and who is not the easiest dog. He has significant issues with fear - recently fear of going outside - and she took it in stride and handled him beautifully with no complaints. She has experience with difficult dogs. I would definitely recommend Avantae!”
“Catherine took great care of my dog and set lots of updates and pictures!”
“Rachael was absolutely fantastic. I could tell right away she is a special person, who connects with dogs on a deep and meaningful level. I have three hounds on special diets, multiple supplements, and with special care needs. She was wonderful handling all of the above and keeping me updated with pics and stories. It was truly the first time in a LONG time that I felt comfortable leaving them. She also left our home spotless, and left a wonderful note. We’ve had the same sitter for almost 7 years, but she moved away a few years ago. Since then, We’ve been searching high and low for someone we can trust, and who will really care for our babies the way we do, and we believe we’ve found her- at long last !! Thank you Rachael !! ??”
About: I have taken care of dogs and cats since I was a kid. Currently, I have a 3 year old cat named Noodles who is my child that I love! It would be so much fun for me to take care of your pets and make sure they are happy while you're away. I am currently working part time and attending grad school at UVA. My grad school also requires for me to do clinical rotations which can make my schedule vary. I am typically free weekdays after 6 or 7pm, and I’m usually free almost anytime on the weekends. I will try my best to make a time that works for both you and your pet, and I will make sure to make them as happy as possible! I am currently living in an apartment with my cat. I believe in keeping a clean and safe environment for humans and pets to feel at ease. I’ve been watching over other people’s pets since I was in middle school, and I’d love to watch yours as well!
“Samantha was such a reliable sitter for our pup! She sent detailed updates and made us feel at ease on our 4 nights away from our dog for the first time. Would highly recommend her dog walking/sitting services! Thanks Samantha!”
