Terry is a great sitter. I have used her previously. She is great with my dogs and they love her. She's a great communicator and sends pics of the pups. She even added my cat this time. Thanks Terry!

Megan was so great with our dog Polly and cat Ely. It felt good knowing that in addition to the basics, Megan took extra time to hang out with our fur babies and give Polly a proper walk twice per day. She checked in mid-week, too, which put our minds at ease. Would definitely recommend Megan!

My dog hates people, but she adores Mary! She is truly the pet whisperer! Not only did Mary make me feel comfortable leaving Talu for the weekend but Mary was quick to respond when I asked how Talula was doing and she also sent me pictures of my dog on and off the whole weekend. 10/10 would recommend! We will be using Mary for any of our trips long or short. It helps to have someone with your dog that loves them like they were their own! Thank you Mary!

We are so happy to have had Konnie care for our 2 dogs while we were away for 5 days. She sent wonderful pictures every day and we could tell that “the girls” were having a good time. Konnie also updated us daily about what the girls were up to. We would definitely recommend Konnie to anyone for excellent pet care. Thank so much, Konnie! Hope to hire you again in the future!

Shelly is a treat! We've never gone on vacation without our dog because she can be a real handful and we didn't want to burden anyone else. Well, a trip came up where we couldn't take her and we decided to give home sitting a shot. Enter our hero, Shelly. She made the whole process easy and, more importantly, our dog loved her, which is a rarity. Long story short, we love Shelly!

Took care of my 16 year old Shih-Tzu. Pebbles is quiet and blind but she still needs help getting around and is very finicky about eating. Lilly helped her finish off her antibiotics and was very good at keeping me updated. Lilly genuinely cares and is willing to give your dog the love and attention they need. Would call again. 👍

I was very pleased with the care our boy's received while Anabel stayed with them. She sent us numerous photos and updates and checked in with us about any concerns. Anabel was great about letting us know when she would and would not be in our home in advance, so we knew how long the boys would be left alone. Great care, great communication!

Jess watched our dog while we were in vacation and did a fabulous job. She was very efficient at making sure his eating schedule and outside schedule remained the same. Jess has a love for animals which is very evident with how she takes care of them. I would highly recommend her.

About: Ive taken care of my aunts dogs for the past year while she’s on vacation. I love to get out and play with the dogs as well. I currently work part time in the evenings. I am available for morning and night care! My schedule is open and easy to work with your needs as well. Unfortunately, I do not offer these services. I still live with my mom and she cannot be around dogs at this time. Thank you for your understanding.

She likes to be called by Lai, & at this point I’m willing to call her whatever she wants. Lai connects, cares & comforts Phinx, so much that now when I hand the little guy off to her he immediately purs, or will do a little jog to her just to curl around her. Lai honestly might be a cat whisper😳

I was nervous to have someone else handle my ~90lb pup that gets really excited to see humans and likes to jump up and kiss their face. He also pulls the leash if he sees other dogs/large trucks. We had Rebecca over for a meet and greet, and went over his commands/routine. Rebecca was a gem and a champ handling him. I was able to go out of town without worry and she sent pic updates which were really sweet. I'm excited to go out of town again at some point just to have her over so my dog can visit with her! Thank you Rebecca!

About: I’ve grown up with dogs and have 2 dachshunds myself. I’ve worked for several different boarding/daycare places over the years and have learned a lot along the way. Done basic daily care needs (water replacements, feeding schedules) potty walks both on and off leash, enrichment/playtimes for those more active and to burn some energy. Experience with all types of dogs from different age ranges to attitude and temperament. Have done many medications (pill and topical) and also have done insulin for diabetic dogs. Have cared for more aggressive-type breeds, and elderly dogs that have mobility issues. Comfortable with bathing and nail trims for dogs. I have full open availability as I work from home so I am able to provide a bunch of time for pets that need it! :) I spoil any animal I meet and take care of. I’ve always been a huge animal lover of any type and always want them to feel comfortable around me and to trust me. If an animal is more active, I love offering them times to play or going for a walk to help. If an animal is more relaxed and wants to lay down, I’m a huge cuddle bug and we’ll binge watch a show together. Whatever the animal is more comfortable/used to doing, I am always up for keeping their routines the same/similar to make my stay more comfortable for them while their parents are away.

About: I've grown up with fuzzies and cared for them all. Tended and loved bunnies both big and small, pups young and old, cats timid and bold. Regardless of pet, I will treat 'em like gold. Loved on and spoiled they'll be sorry to go, I'll keep them quite cozy and you in the know. Caring for fur-babies requires love, understanding, and flexibility. Each pet comes with her own needs and personality. With four dogs (Diamond, Patrick, Trish, and Dusty), four cats (Joel, Hibbleton, Joe, and Dom), and a bunny named Thumper in my care, I've had a little bit of practice in nourishing each individual purr-sonality. Once we get the schedules sorted, I'll be sure to give your loved one the same consideration and I think we'll get along just fine. Hello, and thank you for meeting me here! If I'm at your house, your fur-baby will be let out every 4-8 hours unless otherwise needed. At least one daily walk is guaranteed so your little one can catch up on all the neighborhood gossip; if there's a dog park nearby, I'll take him to meet up with his friends. If you'll provide me with your dog's dietary needs, any medications, and routines, I'll do my best to make sure that he's feelin' just as fly as he would be if you were there. Now if your pup chooses to stay at my lovely establishment, I would request a list of your pups needs, medications, and routines. After the business part is sorted, I have for your pupper two yards; one for business, one for fun. My house has two floors, the first floor is all his. The rules are pretty chill. Pets are allowed on the furniture, food and water are freely available, tricks are rewarded with treats, and if he's a well-behaved gentle-pup, bedtime is kennel-free. However, if you have different boundaries set for your pet I'll be happy to ensure that your little one minds his manners during his stay. Oh, one more thing: I am the tug-o-war champion, though your dog is welcome to try and take my title.
