“Anne has cared for my sweet fur baby for several years. She is so incredibly caring and communicative- she picks up on the smallest changes in my elderly pup’s mood and behavior so we can stay ahead of any health concerns. We are so very thankful for Anne!”
“Arial is a trustworthy and reliable pet friend! She helped me out in a pinch and took great care of my very energetic puppy, Olive. I highly recommend Arial's services!”
“Carrie continues to go above and beyond to care for my pup during my crazy work hours. Walks with updated rover cards so I see from afar how she is doing. I def trust Carrie to make sure Gerty is happy and safe.”
“Dadiana has a great way of taking care of animals, it's obvious that she loves to play with them and cares deeply about them. It's not just a job for her. You can tell she looks forward to spending time with them. She helped me out with my wife's small dogs that are very energetic, a Chihuahua, short hair mix and a long hair papillon, and she was always very patient with them. Makes you feel easy to know that a fellow pet lover is taking care of the fur babies while you're away.”
“Kala did a fantastic job with our little 4 month old puppy! She was caring and gave us detailed notes for every walk! We will definitely continue to have her help us with his doggie-care needs!!”
“Brooke is so amazing. So reliable, timely, and is great to communicate with!!! Highly recommend.”
“Robert is amazing, he’s been walking my Sandy for months now. She looks forward to her walk with him each day. He takes the extra time to ensure my dog has a great time and is cleaned up after a rainy or snowy day. He has even cleaned up some accidents and messes that Sandy has made in the apartment. Your pet will be in great hands under Robert’s care.”
“Amelia is wonderful! She's very patient and understanding with our little puppy Molly. Always provides pictures and updates on Mollys (good or bad!) behavior. ”
“Kenzie has cat-sit for me several times and is wonderful! She is always on time, spends extra time playing with the cats beyond just feeding and cleaning up after them, and sends pictures back to me. She was also super gentle and careful with my hamster. Will be using Kenzie again in the future!”
“Daniela has watched our 1 year old golden retriever so often, he actually pulls on his leash when we are near her building. She takes the best care of my fur baby and I have no doubt she will take care of yours with love and care.”
About: I’ve been caring for family pets, pets of my own and other animals for most of my life! My boyfriend and I currently have a 2 year old pup and a 10 year old cat. Our dog Clementine is a super high energy rescue, and we’ve had the privilege of training, loving and caring for her for 2 years thus far. She requires a lot of exercise, mental stimulation and attention, so I am very experienced with and comfortable caring for puppies and high energy dogs. I also frequently care for our neighbor’s dog who requires medications at certain times, so I’m comfortable administering medicine and caring for senior dogs or pets with specific needs. Overall, I am a loving, caring and experienced pet caregiver, and I will work with you to meet the specific needs of your pet! i have a hybrid work schedule, so I am in the office 3 days a week and at home 2. When I’m home I have plenty of time during the day for walks and playtime. We also have a large fenced in backyard where pups can run around and play (always supervised!). We have a large fenced in backyard for your pup to run around in! Backyard time is always supervised, and we love to be involved in running around and toy time outside. Our dog Clementine is friendly and playful with small/medium sized dogs, and our cat Mia mostly keeps to herself. I totally understand behavioral quirks, specific needs and preferences of pets, and I’m happy to cater to those of your pet.
“Thank you so much!”
“Tanay has cared for our dog on several occasions; one of them being a week long! Our rescue was very hesitant around men, barking at them, not wanting to go up to them. But after my partner and I returned from our first trip with Tanay watching her, he became her favorite person. Anytime we see Tanay, she is all wags and happy feet to see him! When we returned from our second trip, our dog came to see us at the door, but returned to our couch for belly rubs from Tanay. We know he treats her like we would and cares for her closely. You can rest assured Tanay will take great care of your dog and your home! But don’t be surprised if your dog would rather lounge on the couch with him than greet you at the door!”
“Drew took such good care of my pupper while I was out of town! Max can take a while to warm up to people, but he seemed comfortable with Drew right away. Drew also took extra, unplanned time on walks to make sure Max finished all his business despite dawdling (as my dog often does when things are unfamiliar). Thank you, Drew!”
About: My partner and I both grew up with dogs. We take care of friends dogs when they go away and love them as our own. I am a nurse and take great pride in providing loving care to all living things! I am currently in school online and I am able to take care of your dog at any time of the day. My day is open and I look forward to many walks throughout the day. I am very active and love going on walks and hikes. At my apartment complex there is a dog park and surrounding nature parks where I will walk your dog. Our apartment is spacious and has a great dog community.
“Stephanie had done a wonderful job walking my dog, Mikey! She was very communicative and left great notes and pictures during his walks. He can be energetic, but she really handled his wild side without any problem. I could tell that she has a real love for dogs and felt like she was taking care of Mikey the way she would her own pup.”
“Great communicator and flexible”
“Janine goes above and beyond with their exceptional pet care skills, their kindness, patience, and genuine empathy for animals. She always makes sure to give top-notch care as well as of love and compassion. I wholeheartedly endorse Janine and their character, and would unquestionably entrust them with anyone’s pets.”
“Thank you for the tpy for Lucy. She loves it!”
“Laura is amazing! She is trustworthy and super caring. One of our kitties is shy around new people and would often hide from other sitters. Laura was able to gain our cat's trust and now sends pix of our kitty happily cuddling with her!! Laura is really accommodating with our schedule, including last-minute requests. We highly recommend Laura to take great care of your pets!!”
