“Nick was great with our kittens and did everything we asked. Will definitely use him again!”
“Angelica is just amazing, she was available very last minute after someone canceled on us. She has experience with husky’s which was a big plus for us. She took out dog for an hour walk and he came home so so tired (which I love) will be using her weekly! I so recommend her! Thank you Angelica”
“I was so happy that Anahai was able to dog sit for us on such short notice. I like the fact that it shows where she walked our dog she took pictures and I felt very comfortable with leaving my dog with her. I hope she’s available for future vacations I’d love to have her again.”
“Julie has been so fantastic with our three dogs (two Great Danes and one Pointer). Our youngest is a pandemic puppy and is scared of strangers coming to the house. Julie has been so patient while he warms up to her (which he has done in a matter of days). Her experience with rehabilitation and positive reinforcement training has been a BLESSING during this - getting to know each other period. We are so lucky to have found her!”
“Lynne is an amazing cat sitter. We didn't know what to expect with this service. But after our meet and greet we knew it was going to be great. While on vacation we received pictures and detailed notes about the drop it. We have two cats who take a long time to warm up to and they warmed up to Lynne in day one. This was such a great experience and will recommend to anyone who needs the service. Lynne is a 10/10. Great cat sitter. Thank you Lynne.”
About: My name is Gracee and I have tons of experience with all kinds of pets. I grew up rescuing kittens and dogs. I am most comfortable with meduim/larger sized dogs. I have pet sat for friends and family on multiple occasions. This will be my first time going through an app. I have 3 pets that are rescues (bean, carrot, and grass). Carrot was fully declawed by his last owners so I have experience with taking special care of his specific needs. I know how to play with dogs and how to handle myself around them. I do have a lot of availability since my summer job just ended. I am still currently looking for another part-time job at the moment. I will always keep dogs on a leash unless in your own fenced in yard. I make sure all doors are closed so cats or dogs to not get outside. I love playing fetch and tug of war. I also typically play with cats with feathers or string or the little balls with bells in them. I also of course give them as much affection as I can.
Cyara & Patrick D.
“Cyara has watched my dog multiple times. She has made sure my dog has enough walks as well as adequate enrichment time (as he is a senior dog, he requires something other than long walks to keep him happy and sharp). She always keeps me apprised of what they did that day and if there were any GI issues which is super helpful. We love Cyara!”
“Kyle is so fantastic with animals! He really enjoys being around them and makes sure they have everything they need; whether it’s a long/short walk, some play time or just some extra love and attention! He truly enjoys being around my pets & have excellent communication skills! Now my dog can’t wait to see him again! fantastic service 😄”
Judene & Adam A.
“Judene and Adam have proven to be trustworthy pet takers. I will be coming to them from now on to watch our pets. I love that they have a separate room to keep other dogs in case they dont get along as our pet can get overwhelmed and anxious pretty easy.”

“Caroline was fantastic with my senior cat, Theda. When we met for a meet and greet I explained that I am a bit particular about how Theda’s meals are organized and how to clean her bowls, and Caroline was totally on top of it all. I was away the last two weekends and received daily photos of a happy cat from Caroline while out of town, and when I came back the litter area and kitchen were so clean and tidy. I really appreciate that level of care and attention and I know Theda did too: thank you so much Caroline!”
“Jessica did amazing!! She came by a few days before our trip to meet the pups and I felt a huge relief about leaving them in her hands! Every time she stopped by she sent so many pics, very detailed updates, and gave my babies so much love!!! I was able to fully enjoy my trip knowing Jessica had my pets covered!!!”
“Whenever I need to leave town to visit family back home, Sam is always my first choice to dog sit my two chihuahuas. Chihuahuas can be a handful to look after, especially my two thirteen year olds. She was very dependable, keeping the dogs on their feeding schedule, taking them out to use the bathroom and play in the grass, and took them both on regular walks. My dogs absolutely loved her and are very excited whenever she comes over. She is very kind and loving to animals and a natural caregiver.”
“Amazing and very caring person, loves animals and it really shows. Always with a good attitude and my dog loves her, I 100% recommend her.”
“Emilio is perfect for taking care of dogs because he has a dog grooming shop.I see how he always take the time to understand how the dog feels so he can give them the best bath ever,he is very comprehensive with them. Sometimes his friends ask him to take care of his dogs when they are out of town.Because he love to take them out for a walk,he is attentive and manages dogs well.”
“Absolutely amazing pet sitter! We have used Claudia more than once and she is wonderful. Checks in all the time and takes pictures to let us know our kitties were doing well. Highly recommend Claudia and will be using her in the future if need be!!”
About: Hello! I just moved here and I left my dogs in the Ph. Taking care of your dog/s will ease the pain feeling the loneliness for my dogs. It is a win win situation! Additionally, I also have my experience working and assisting at vet clinic during school. It was for 80 hours, I witnessed animals being spayed, getting surgery, given a shot, and more. Since I haven’t started college yet, I have plenty of free time to take care and play with your dog/s. We will surely have a great time! I am also left with my grandparents in the house most of the time. During the set pet service that I will be scheduled for you, I will have my Mommy around with me since I still don’t have license to drive and still new to places here. And I apologized in advance for how I awkwardly act during the meet and greet or the service, I can be pretty introverted and shy with new people I’ll meet, please know that I am trying and getting better at it, however I am a good communicator online in regards with updating you about you pet/s! Thank you!! I aspire to become a Veterinarian someday, by this you can help me by getting much more used to animals. In terms of safety, we have a house with backyard with fence for security purposes as well as for your pets safety and comfortability.
