“Jill is Amazing! Communication with me was on point. She followed instructions to the tee! Jill is just a down to earth personable person and I am so glad I found her here on Rover! Next time I am in town for work, I will bring her back to my pups in a heartbeat!”
“Jade’s passion for animal care is unmatched. Experienced with veterinary clinics, groomers, and a major metropolitan zoo, she’s an ideal pet caregiver. Trustworthy and compassionate.”
“Mackenzie has many great qualities that make her an excellent pet sitter with the most notable traits being reliability, integrity, and sensitivity. She will spoil your fur babies as much as she spoils her own. She has taken care of my reactive dog multiple times with sensitivity to my dog’s needs and confidence in handling her. Do not hesitate to use Mackenzie for your pet care as your pets will love her and so will you.”
“Alayna has taken care of our furry friend Marley several times now. She does a great job and we would hire her for any upcoming vacations and/or out of town meetings.”
About: I have been pet sitting for over 10 years now for family friends and thought to expand my services! I typically walk 3 miles a day and I love to have a furry friend join me. I am currently in college and missing my golden doodle back home, so I love all the dog time I can get :) I am currently in college with a flexible schedule! I prefer lunchtime or evening walks, but can do potty breaks at any point throughout the day Mon-Fri. I am comfortable crating your dog, feeding, walking, and letting them outside for bathroom breaks. I am also more than willing to include play time for active dogs.(I might enjoy it more than them)

About: I’ve had pets since I was five and helped take care of them and pet sat for my neighbors many times over my life. I can bathe dogs and I have experience administering medication to them as well. I love all animals and they take a liking to me too. Aside from dogs I also have experience with cats, fish, lizards, and rodents. I’m in charge of my work schedule, which allows me to be very flexible. I will gladly work with you to get the best care for your pets! During the summer at peak heat times during the day (12-4pm) there is an additional $10 fee for walks. I love animals and will provide attentive care for them. I live in an area with lots of walking spots to take your pets exploring.

I have experience with all types of dogs, I’m accommodating, loving, and passionate. I can guarantee a safe experience with your pet as I put safety of the pet first.
“Pleasant, energetic and will definitely use again.”
“Amanda was great. Very friendly, responsible, and responsive. We had her come walk our large labradoodle several days during the week. It was nice to meet with her prior to the walks. Would definitely recommend her!”
About: I've taken care of dogs since I was around 12 or 13 years old. I would take care of neighbor's, and family member's animals. Such as walking them, feeding them, giving them the love and care that they receive everyday from their owners. **I am severely allergic to peanuts** I am in college so my schedule is pretty consistent. I do have another job I work as well which is pretty consistent as well. I am not available on Tuesdays until around 5:15pm or 5:30pm, I do have a break in the morning from around 10:45 to noon. Monday and Wednesdays I'm open after 10:00am. Fridays I am open after 9:30am until around 3:00pm after that I am available around 6pm. Saturdays I'm completely open and Sunday I am available around noon. I have a fenced in yard if I need to watch the dog in my home. I am normally in the living room which gives me a clear view to the back yard/door to see if your pup needs to go out prior to the time I would regularly let your pup outside. I will respect your home, and follow said rules in your home to be able to give your animal the best care it deserves. ♡
About: I've been around pets off and on my entire life. I have experience walking small and medium size dogs regularly, including putting on and taking off harnesses. I am not afraid to roll around on the floor and play with them. I am a firm believer in using dog communication, such as eye contact or lack thereof, and in keeping with the training that already started. If you always put a hand flat for sit, it means sit, if it means lay down, it means lay down. I follow your lead, you know your dog best. I'm currently in between jobs so I'm very consistently open, I will update my availability if something comes up for a day, and I hate letting people down so I pay close attention so I don't overbook myself. Consistency is key for most animals, I'm willing to work with you to maintain the status quo, so to speak, with your pets routine, food, and training.
About: I have been taking care of pets very since I was a kid. I have house sat dogs since I was about 15. I have experience with both senior dogs and puppies. I am currently helping my family train our new Belgian Malinois puppy. I am currently in-between jobs at this moment because of moving back home for the summer. Therefore me having plenty of time to spend with your pets! I plan on spending time walking, playing, loving, and sending updates on your pets while you are away. When they aren't busy chowing down during meals.
About: I have spent my life with pets. I've fostered for rescue, worked with several pet food companies and am very educated in pet nutrition. I've volunteered at my local humane society. I'm an experienced pet handler and have worked with a pet relocation company providing boarding and long distance ground transportation. I have and excellent knowledge of dog breeds and breed specific behavior and needs. I treat every animal I work with as if he/she were my own. All animals in my care are treated as royalty. I have a special love for senior and special needs dogs and always welcome them for services. I will always treat your pet as a member of the family and take extra special care when taking them on dogs walks and transporting them. I'm bonded and insured and a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters I work from home part-time so I'm always home for daycare and boarding. I also have the flexibility to do drop-in visits and petsitting in your home In home boarding and daycare are cage free. Pups are crated at night for sleeping depending on how many dogs are in the house, how well I know them and of course, what they're sleeping preferences are. I'm not a fan of crating pups unless its necessary for health and or safety.
About: I have experience with a wide variety of animals. I've dog-sat for many different people and I have found that I really enjoy getting to know each dog better. I grew up on a farm and own some exotic animals (such as pheasants, sugar gliders, and ostriches) so I am very comfortable being around any animal and am willing to gain experience with every kind of animal I can! My schedule is always changing and I am really only busy during the warmer months. I will be getting a part-time job soon but I mainly work on jobs that people ask me to and get them done when I have time. The only pets I have in my house and on my property are sugar gliders who have their own cage in their own room so they won't be a problem if I have animals over. I do not plan on getting any dogs or cats in the near future either. I do not have a fenced yard but I have about a half-acre backyard that is plenty big.
“Taz had a great time with winter!”
