Wendy is excellent! She is punctual, kind, and respectful. She is great with our new rescue dog, and takes care of her like one of her own! Wendy took time to meet our dog prior to drop in visits to make sure she’d be a good fit. I highly recommend her to take care of your pup ☺️

Julie did an amazing job connecting with my cat. Usually when I return my cat is not very happy. The cat was very peaceful which matters since she’s elderly and has health issues. I highly recommend Julie. I also felt relaxed while away getting updates on a daily basis.

Oh my goodness. We love Nora!!! She is so kind and generous and wonderful with our two pups. Leaving your dogs at home all day long can be tough, but Nora provides a wonderful sense of comfort. She is timely, reliable, patient and I know she loves our dogs. She is the only person I use on Rover because she’s the full package! Thank you for all you do, Nora!!

Samantha was a fantastic dog sitter! One of my pups can be reactive and the other is shy around new people and I felt very secure knowing she was taking care of my pups while I was away and that they would be in good hands. She was very accommodating with doing meet and greets beforehand to ensure my dogs felt comfortable with her. I would book her again in a heartbeat and would trust her with any of your pet needs!

Caitlin is a true gem! I immediately felt comfortable with her caring for my pets while we were away. There was a small hiccup where my escape artist got out and she headed over there IMMEDIATELY. I know she has got to have a life other than taking care of my pets but you would never know it. She kept me updated with detailed a synopsis in the notes and posted multiple pictures at each visit. Caitlin is a member of my family now whether she likes it or not but based on the personalized care she provided I imagine she's agree to come love on my pets again.

Dawn was so so wonderful with my cat Zuko and Holland Lop Apollo! She kept me updated with every drop in and sent pictures to ease my mind. I have never left my babies alone before and she kept them all taken care of and gave them cuddles/ pets as needed. I would definitely hire her again, she made our vacation so much easier to know my fur babies were treated the same as I would treat them.

About: I have been Petsitting and house sitting for friends and family for more than 25 years, so I figured, why not make new friends and continue the tradition? It’s one of my greatest joys in life, getting to know and play with new puppers and their people!! I’ve cared for many types and breeds of dogs, cats, and exotic animals (snakes, tortoises, lizards, turtles, tarantulas, exotic fish, etc.) and all types of pet personalities - shy, rambunctious, skittish, lazy, grouchy, energetic, and everything in-between. From trained purebreds to rescues who have been abused or neglected and need special attention, I have worked with and enjoyed them all. I’ve administered meds, cared for sick pups and kitties, and taken my charges to the vet when needed. I could be trained to care for your pigs, goats, sheep, horses, etc. I travel a good deal and understand the importance of being able to have your non-human child well looked after and not have to worry about them while you’re out of town, or even if you’re just at work. I work remotely, so your pet gets potty breaks often, and they have a human around almost all the time. We go for small walks around a delightful neighborhood when desired, or longer walks/hikes on nearby trails if the bigger pups are game. There are no off-limits areas in our house- my pug Napoleon slept *under the covers* in the big bed he believed he owned - but if you have different rules, they will be enforced as dictated. Any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! I am excited to meet you - and your human friends ;)! [Update: unable to provide services for dogs larger than 15lbs until February 2024]. Working remotely from my home office provides plenty of opportunity for potty breaks and puppy love in-between client interactions on the phone. It also allows me to stay full-time in your home with your pets if overnight sits are your preference. All that is needed is an internet connection and a quiet place in your home to work. I have a gated yard in the front but can take little pups on-leash if there’s any concern. There’s also a small potty area in the back yard with a full fence for off-leash outside time. I can accommodate a small crate in my home, if desired. For overnights in your home, an initial meet-n-greet will be required prior to the first engagement to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety.

About: I have never known life without a furry, tail wagging companion. My husband and I currently have two dogs: a Chocolate Lab named Bea (4 y/o), and a Lab/German Shepherd Mix named Honey. Our dogs typically get two play sessions at our complex's private dog yard per day, at least one outdoor adventure hike per week, lots of long line decompression walks near home. They also receive various enrichment activities throughout the day including: their fave stuffed kongs/toppls, snuffle mats, homemade treats and food, obedience and agility training, and chances to sit and observe their surroundings with positive reinforcement. Your pups can expect the same special treatment when they hang with us! I love catering walks/activities based on breed specific traits. Ex: a super sniffy walk with treats in the grass for a dog who loves to use their nose! I know and understand the struggle of finding the right person for your pet and want to ensure they have their needs met while you're away! I currently work full time on an evening schedule (2-10pm) and am able to care for your pet around the clock outside of that time! At our apartment, we have a fenced dog park which your dog would have access to as the only pup on the playing field, or along with my personal dogs. We are also able to have dogs travel in our vehicle to nearby locations for walks in town and local hikes if you would prefer. Inside our apartment we have a dedicated room for dog care with room for additional crates, beds, etc if needed.

About: Hello! I’m Joa! I’m 23, and I recently moved to Asheville! I have worked at Pet Supermarket, volunteered at a local veterinarian, and have worked at a dog groomer. I had a 12 year old pug since second grade, and after she passed, I helped my mom take care of a new pug puppy. Currently, my partner and I have a 12 year old hound mix and a 7(ish?) year old tortie cat. I will do anything I can to keep a pup or kitty happy and healthy. If there is a specific time I could be helpful, please let me know. I am looking forward to working with you and your pet! Thank you! I often walk or run on my own anyway, so being able to do it with your dog would be even better. I also enjoy reading and drawing, and would happily do those in the company of your cat. I will make sure they have fresh water and are fed on time. Even if I am just doing drop in visits, and if it is alright with you, I like to spend some time with the pets, either playing or petting, making sure they don’t feel too lonely.
