Lis was great with my dog Falcor. They made sure he was well taken care of and as a Siberian Husky, Flacor lets me know when he is not pleased... ;-)

Matt was great with my dogs! I have a 5 year old spaniel and a 5 month old terrier puppy. I have only had the terrier puppy for 3 weeks, and he is very attached to me and gets upset when he is not with me. We drove 20 hours from upstate NY, rented an Airbnb, and a few hours later left the dogs in order to attend an event at UF. This was a lot for my two little dogs! Matt handled them beautifully! Matt arrived on time and stayed with my pups for 5 hours. He took them for a walk, and settled them for a much needed nap. He sent me pictures of my dogs, which was reassuring to me as I was worried about how they would react after traveling so far and being left in a strange home. Matt communicated with me while I was away and his care for my dogs allowed me to enjoy my event. I would hire him again if I was local. 10/10 thank you Matt!!!!! ⭐️

Lois did a great job of taking care of my dogs and house. The house was exactly as I left it, I was sent multiple updates a day on the dogs (along with photos), and they were flexible on leaving and return time.

Shannon was absolutely amazing with my boy Koda. She sent pictures and videos throughout her time with him and kept him right on his normal schedule. Her kind and calm demeanor made Koda feel comfortable right away. I wasn’t worried once! She communicated with me throughout her stay and reached out if she had any questions. I can’t recommend Shannon enough, she was awesome and I will definitely be booking her next time.

Alexis was amazing!! Although my dog Bella was not super enthused for our meet & greet, she had soooo much fun with her once they were at my place. She warmed up to her in due time and got all the cuddles, treats, play, and attention she needed. I received daily updates with pictures on how she was doing which I really appreciated. As someone with a slightly anxious dog 😅, I was pleasantly surprised at how much Bella behaved in my absence with Alexis. Anyone she feels comfortable with is someone I trust so I would deffffffinitely book again!

McKayla did a great job watching our dog. She's very kind and really seems to love the animals she pet sits and our pup seemed to love her too! McKayla sent us cute pictures and updates almost daily. That really made us feel comfortable with her. As a bonus our house was immaculate when we got home. We will be using her again!

Estefania was very professional from the start, a short meet and greet so out two dogs can meet her and she can get a short time with them. She had a calm nature about her which put our two dogs at ease. While we were away she took picture and sent them daily. Our house looked amazing when we returned and out babies were well taken care of. We will rebook.

As someone who unexpectedly had to leave for an out-of-state funeral, we truly can’t thank Bri enough for the amazing treatment of my of my dogs & bunnies! She not only operated flawlessly in an ambiguous environment, but the energy couldn’t have been more settling/pure when I returned home. She truly over-communicates every step of the way! Thank you & God bless you, Bri! Pardon the delay! Love, Rene, Sam, Oliver, Boaz & Noah-Thumps - muah!

Hey there! My name is Cielo and I’m a longtime friend of Caitlyn’s from college. But then again, even if she wasn’t my friend, I wouldn’t leave my dog with anyone else. Caitlyn comes from a long line of dog loving people as both her parents met professionally dog grooming, and it certainly shows. Caitlyn groomed my own dog Pepper as well as watched her whenever I needed her to for all of college and I couldn’t have left her in any better hands. Caitlyn is very knowledgeable about not just dogs but their training too, meaning, I’ve always had a better dog coming back from Caitlyn than I have as I left her with. Caitlyn takes the upmost care with everything she does, but dogs are her thing. Let her do her thing and she won’t disappoint.

I was Caitlins manager at Camp Bow Wow she was a great worker, always on time, she also learned our safety protocols quickly, you can tell her love for animals she was a natural and the dogs absolutely loved playing with her. I would hire her in a second if I was still in that line of work. Your animals would be safe with her!
