“My two cocker spaniels had a great day with Joshua and Richard and will stay there again. They both obviously love dogs and have two sweet little dogs of their own. They noted everything down and sent me pictures of my dogs having a good time there. Thank you!”
“I have known Bethany for many years and know that she has strong work ethics which make her very responsible and dependable. She has had many pets through the years and I have always known her to be loving and caring for them. She always took them for regular veterinary care and grieved at their passing. She treats her current dog like he is her child and takes him with her everywhere. He has a better wardrobe than mine! He is a very important part of her life.”
“Ellie loves her time with Jessica, and we look forward to going back again!”
“Joyce is fabulous! Smooth experience, very attentive, great communication. Thank you!”
“Isabelle cares for Minnie (multi-poo) like Minnie is her own child. I am assured every time I go out of town Minnie is well cared for. She follows my care instructions responsibly and when I text for a “missing Minnie text update” she will reply back immediately and even send a picture. When Minnie sees Isabelle she goes willingly with a friendly wag of her tail and I leave relaxed knowing Minnie is well cared for.”
“DENISE is very good with animals. She has watched my beautiful cat Bella many times and took very good care of her. I never had to worry about her when I was away. I totally trust DENISE with any animal she’s watched a friends dog more than once and she was very pleased with Denise’s services. She has all the qualities of a great pet sitter very caring, and very attentive. Thank you Michelle”
“Amber was amazing! Thanks so much for taking our Billy in short notice! He had a great time with your doggies and came home both happy and exhausted LOL thanks so much!”
About: Every single animal deserves to be well taken care of in a safe and living environment, even when you can’t be there! We take our dogs on walks once, or twice a day and let them play in the fenced in yard often. Pets and snuggles are included, too. My flexible, work from home, schedule allows me to care for my pets whenever needed. I’m available for walks, socializing, you name it! Even with little notice I am usually available to help. We have two male dogs at home who have been fixed. They are eight and 13 years old, sleepy old man, who spend most of their time lounging around. We also have three kiddos who are so good with dogs and enjoy their presence.
“It was our first time with Melissa and all went well. Melissa is a very friendly person and easy to connect with. Shiloh enjoyed his stay and was in good spirits when picked up. Thank you, Melissa--we'll hopefully see you again!”
“Tallie is great! I was comfortable with her immediately. I love the atmosphere at her place, you can tell she loves animals. Tallie sent pics so that I didn't have to worry and Buddy obviously enjoyed himself because he went right to bed when we got him home :) Will definitely be using her again.”
“Helen is a true dog lover. She is able to work with all sizes of dogs. She has worked with a trainer and has a very good understanding of animal behavior and how to work with difficult behaviors. Helen taught me that the dog walk is not just bonding/training time between dog and walker but also an exciting sensory experience that is very important in very dog’s day. She is very dependable no matter what the weather is like. If the dog will go out she will too! She will be an excellent addition to Rover.”
“There couldn't be a more conscientious pet caregiver than Bill. Bill took over the care of his father's dog when his father passed away. He and his wife took the dog everywhere, and provided incredible care. Following the death of his own dog, he put food and water at the end of his driveway for other dogs as they were being walked by their owners. He rescued a baby turtle, and he built a turtle-friendly home where the turtle has thrived. We have known Bill for many years, and have found that in all aspects of his life, he is extremely careful. If you want the best caregiver for your dog, Bill is the person you want to hire.”
“Joey took amazing care of my cat Goku! He played with him, loved him, and even, with my permission, introduced his dog Rambo to my cat Goku and they loved each other! He took great, professional care of my cat and I would let him sit for me again a hundred times!”
About: I have been taking care of dogs my entire life. From my families, to my neighbors and to my friends, they have all asked me for help. I am working part time right now, and I set my own schedule. So, I can work any time, any place. Let me know what works best for you. I always try to treat the animal with the upmost respect. They are living creatures and deserve the best treatment possible. I am very friendly to them and let them build trust with me first.

About: Ever since I was a kid, I always had at least one pet. In the last 16 years I have a cat and in my last 8 years I have also and a dog. During the weekdays and for the weekends because of my obligations , I am only available for dog walkings after 7 o'clock in the afternoon. For those who are interested for boarding - your dog will be also accompanied by our friendly female dog I will pay lots of attention to your animal. I love to walk outside and enjoy watching them play in the dog park, throwing toys, and explore for new smells.
“Ashley was so sweet and clearly a true dog lover! :) She had great communication the whole time and was very accommodating. Definitely would recommend!!”
“Alanna has watched our pets for years. She has stayed at our home, come for feeding and walking only and also taken dogs to her home to stay. We’ve always felt they were loved and cared for. She cares for our cats and birds as well. We trust her and know she loves animals just as she loves her children.”
About: I am a lover of all animals, furry, feathered & scaly. Seriously, ALL animals! I’m that lady that will stop to assist a turtle crossing the road. I’ve volunteered to rescue injured birds while at the beach, saved a green anole lizard from a hard freeze, fostered close to a dozen cats til they found their fur-ever homes, rescued a baby red-eared slider turtle the size of a quarter from the middle of the road and raised him to be happy and healthy until he was big and strong enough to be safely returned to the pond. I have no fear of animals. I truly understand and listen to them and know how to read their body language. I often understand animals better than people ☺️ I will always go out of my way for animals. I’m not talking about just wanting to stop and pet every dog or cat I see and give it hugs and kisses…I definitely do! ….but truly doing whatever I can to better their lives. I got my first cat when I was 7 years old, and since then have personally rescued and loved more than 20 kitties, and 2 dogs. I’ve owned and maintained multiple freshwater aquariums. Cared for birds, lizards and snakes. I have experience with dog and cat training, solving behavioral issues, and administering medicine whether it be a pill or injections. I work from home as an adventure travel customer service specialist for REI. My work schedule is M-F from 11am-8pm with my lunch break from 4-5pm. I am available mornings, afternoon, and night. Depending on the dog I may possibly be able to make an exception, however, we have 4 cats so they would need to be friendly and calm towards them. Thank you for understanding
“Finn had a great time with Lexi and Honey?? She was super kind and welcoming, and had a great space for the pups to play and relax…we will def be back!! Thank you Lexi!!”
About: I grew up with 6 dogs ranging from Weiner dogs to south African mastiffs that weighed 200+ pounds to golden retrievers and Pitbull's, as well as fish, birds, cats, ducks, chickens, and I even had pet raccoons for a period! I now just have 2 cats that hang outside most of the day and are extremely pet friendly and can be kept separately in the home if necessary. I have a big fenced in back yard as well. Currently on an extended leave from my 9-5 job so im home all day every day to entertain your pets! Aside from social obligations i can prioritize your animals needs 24/7! I have a completely fenced in yard with lush landscaping for your pets to run around in, as well as a pet safe home environment indoors. Ive been caring for animals of all types my entire life so this truly is a passion.
