Hilary was fantastic! We had a virtual meet and greet so she could meet Mochi and she asked a lot of great questions. During the visits, she provided a great summary and sent some pictures to let me know how my baby was doing. Highly recommend!

Shane is great with my cat, Oscar and keeps him company while I’m out of town. He is also punctual and communicative (which is key)! Highly recommend using Shanes’ service.

Zoe did a phenomenal job taking care of our cats! One of our cats is more timid and he went up to her immediately. She was very communicative and made us feel so at ease that our cats were in good hands while we were gone. We will definitely use Zoe again!!

Becca was wonderful in taking care of our former feral, now happy and lazy adult cat while we were out of town for two weeks. We adored the daily pictures and appreciate that she spent a lot of time making sure he got the attention he needed while we were gone. We won’t hesitate to book her again to watch him!

We felt stress-free knowing our cat was in Alexandra’s hands. Our cat is very skittish and doesn’t trust new people, but was letting Alexandra pet her only a few days into watching her! Every night, I looked forward to the photos and updates Alexandra would send. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone!

About: I have been surrounded by dogs since childhood. Responsible for walks, training, feeding, and clean up. Right now I live in a condo with my adorable maine coon cat that I take care of! I work from home and love to get outside. I am flexible for walks during the week! I can be available as needed for drop ins at any local dog park. I go on several walks around the neighborhood throughout the day as part of a daily routine. Many dog friendly local parks are conveniently available!

Carter is great with pets and understands their needs. He’s very active, likes to walk, and can adapt to many situations. He has watched and walked a range of young, old, large, and small dogs (along with a few cats) and can handle them all well. His pharmacy background gives him unique insight into vet meds and how to properly administer any medication they may be on.

Kelly has been a dear friend of mine for over 10 years. Ive had the pleasure of watching her be an amazing dog mom to her lab, Bosun, and have always admired how she has trained and cares for him. Additionally, Kelly has always been my go-to to watch my golden, Bella, anytime I’m out of town. She is extremely responsible, tidy, and respectful of my home. She walks, plays with, loves and cares for Bella as much as I do. If you leave your dog with Kelly, they are in excellent hands. You are lucky to have her!

Lauren is a true lover of animals. She has two adorable cats she treats like her own children, but she has a knack for caring for dogs as well. She’s great at making dogs who might be shy or nervous more comfortable, like my own dog Fox.

Carolina was the best! I came home and my boys were happy, everything was clean and they had fresh food and water. I loved how Carolina included the details of her drop in visits with my boys and she also could be a photographer because she took the cutest pics of them while I was gone. She followed my instructions exactly which was wonderful. Also if you have a shy cat or animal I highly recommend her because she won my shy little Puffs over and he warmed up to her right away and was out playing and getting pets during all their visits. She took the stress of me leaving my babies for a few days away because I knew they were in great hands. Can’t say thank you enough ❤️ we will absolutely be booking Carolina again ?
