“Louise was great with my cat Maya. Maya has a particular need to get her eyes cleaned up and Louise took very good care of her! I hope to have Louise take care of Maya whenever I am out of the town! Thanks Louise”
“Absolutely excellent. We went on a long trip to Asia and the biggest thing for me was that I could actually enjoy my trip because I knew they were in great hands. She walked our dog daily in addition to playing with her outside in the backyard and really helped get her energy out and quality time. She was patient and kind with our cats and did an excellent job in finding ways to get them to take their medicine (3 of the 4 cats take medication). She cleaned our house throughout the stay but did a final clean on the day we got back and that was such a huge plus for us. It was nice coming home to happy animals and a clean house in order. So happy we found Tara and can’t wait to have her pet sit again.”
“Arial takes care of my sweet Perla when I travel. She takes such a good care and gives her love and keep us update of how she is doing. Perla is always excited to see her!”
“Will def come back to Catarina :)”
“Janrose was phenomenal with my cat Luna! She was very communicative and would send update pictures and videos of Luna, and was able to administer her oral medication without any problems. She went above and beyond in accommodating for Luna’s anxiety, which was majorly appreciated. I highly recommend any pet owner in need of a sitter or caretaker to consider Janrose for their future pet needs!!!”
“Kylee went above and beyond to accommodate our hectic last-minute schedule for two straight days of drop-ins. This was our second time hiring her. Will definitely hire her again and recommend her to anyone!”

Mei Ling W.
“Mei Ling is an excellent caregiver of pets! As a pet owner herself, she is disciplined with daily, weekly, and annual routines pets need. Her two pets also very calm, reflecting the peaceful and comfortable environment she provides for them. Thirdly, Mei Ling has a passion for all furry friends, which exudes an inviting presence many pets can tell is a safe human. I’m confident she would extend this care to any other pet owners in need of caregiving assistance!”
“Jess is a thoughtful and attentive petsitter, she's managed my four full-sized rescues for weekends at a time and I would trust her in any pet circumstance. She's timely and gives my dogs full care, long walks, and lots of attention. I would recommend Jess for all of your pet setting needs.”
About: I have had several family dogs. My first pets were two big fluffy Samoyeds named Tyler and Chelsey, the best big siblings a kid could've asked for! Later, during high school, we adopted a Corgi named Alex from our local shelter and adopted an Australian-Shepard Beagle named Cocoa mix from a family friend. Talk about a high-energy pair of dogs! After Alex crossed the rainbow bridge, our home didn't feel the same with out a Corgi, which is when our family adopted Jax! Moving away from home has made me miss being around dogs and going on walks, so I am excited to bring that love and energy to your pets soon! I am currently working full time but am available on most weekends or weekday evenings to watch, drop in, walk, and play with your pets! Unfortunately my landlord does not allow pets to stay in our residence. But I am happy to come meet with you and your pets and work on building a relationship to ensure your pets are comfortable, and stress-free while you are away!
“I recently had the pleasure of entrusting my two small dog companions, to Aidan's expert care for a 4 day period (twice a day) drop in visit. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for his exceptional service and the love and attention he provided them. Aidan truly went above and beyond to ensure their well-being and happiness during my absence. Aidens attention to detail was outstanding. He made it a priority to replicate their daily routine as closely as possible, providing a sense of stability and comfort for my pups. Throughout the 4 day period, Aiden maintained excellent communication with me. He regularly provided updates, including photos which greatly reassured me that my pups were happy and content. I highly recommend Aiden to anyone in need of a trustworthy and exceptional petsitter. His professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine love for animals make him a standout choice. Thank you, Aiden for providing such an outstanding pet care experience.”
