About: I trained and raised puppies from birth. I have always grown up being around dogs and i love to take care and play with them! I’m a college student currently so I have time between and after classes to come let out and play with your dogs! I also am usually free all day on Sundays and some days during the week. I do not have a fenced in yard but i do have a big grass area and other secluded parks to take them to. I live in an apartment on the 3rd floor.
“I refer to Megan as the “dog whisperer”. She’s never met a dog she hasn’t liked. They all LOVE her! She cares so much for animals and they know it. It really is a beautiful thing to see. Not only does she provide exceptional care of our dog, she also helps us with training! Our dog can’t wait until she see’s her again. Megan is a senior in Animal Science pursuing a Veterinary degree at Iowa State University. Megan is so outstanding, I arrange my vacation around her schedule!”
“He was so compassionate with our older pup. I trusted leaving my sweet boy in his care because he seemed to really care about his well-being!”
“Hailey is a caring and attentive pet sitter. She watches over my corgi and several other dogs from what I know and a few cats as well. She is knowledgeable on how to care for and train pets. You can trust Hailey to take care of your pet and be responsible when entering one's home. She is active and will be sure to keep one's pet active on walks.”
“Taylor Is great with Luna... Who can be stubborn sometimes!!”
“J is, without a doubt, one of the best sitters anyone could ask for! He has an amazing attention to detail and he will never miss a beat with your pups. He took the absolute best care of my animals when I lived in the same area and I could not recommend him more! His love for animals is extremely evident and he constantly goes above and beyond to take care of all animals and households. Ten out of ten in my book!”
“Lizzy has grown up with dogs in her home. She has a degree in Animal Science. Has worked in a vet clinic. She has a great sense of animal behavior and can “read” dogs really well. She is conscientious, timely and has a passion for being around dogs. Lizzy would be a great choice for dog care of any sort!”
“Alisha is confident and dependable. She trained and showed our sheltie in obedience, rally, and agility. Her calm demeanor and positive attitude put our dog at ease. Our dog was in good hands with Alisha!”
“My dogs just love Taylor! She treats them as if they were her own. She’s incredibly caring and detail-oriented with her responsibilities! Taylor is a trustworthy caregiver and I know I can count on her to take care of my pets when I am away!”
“Hi! Sophie is a responsible young lady that you can count on to show up! She has cared for neighbors and friends pets while they have gone away for the weekend and vacations. She is an animal lover with a kind gentle personality and animals love her back and feel comfortable with her. I highly recommend Sophie to care for your precious fur babies!”
“I highly recommend Emma. She is experienced with all types of dogs due to her background fostering animals. She handled our large, headstrong dog very well when she walked him around Ada Hayden each day. She is always very prompt when scheduling visits.”
About: Hello! My name is Emma and I am a student at Iowa State University. I have watched dogs for many years and would love to look after, play, and walk your pets. I also have a friendly little pup that would love to make a new friend! I have a pretty flexible class schedule so I can make time to watch your pet. I am available at least 4 days a week, but often times even daily. I live in an apartment complex near campus. It is spacious with lots of place to roam inside. There is lots of grassy area near by.
“Christy is a very caring and loving person and care giver. She has taken care of my 3 dogs and they all love her. She tested them very well and she loves taking care of animals so I would definitely recommend her for this job!”
“Gina is a caregiver at heart. I have seen this through our 45 years of friendship. Gina has loved on her own pets as well as caring for pets of her friends. I trust Gina with my life and trust her with any animal in my home. Animals sense her love for them. Not only does Gina have a love for animals, but she is trustworthy, kind, and dedicated.”
“Jess has cared for my small-breed dogs on an occasional basis for the last two years. She has provided visits that combine walking with pet sitting tasks such as feeding, playing with, and pottying the dogs. She is a vet student so she understands animals, she uses gentle and compassionate methods, she is communicative and follows instructions well, and my dogs have enjoyed spending time with her. She is a pet parent to multiple species, so she understands caring for all types of critters. I'm a professional dog trainer and behavior consultant, and I'm very choosy about who I entrust my dogs to. I also recommend Jess to my clients. Jess is a wonderful sitter and walker!”
About: My entire life I have owned animals. I also had a split family growing up, so at both households there were multiple animals each. Double the pet fun !!! I have owned big dogs, small dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens! I have a wide range of engaging with animals, ones who are senior animals all the way down to babies. I am a huge lover of animals and would love to provide ease to you and your families in ensuring your pet gets the best care while you are away. My mom was a single mom, who worked full time and could have absolutely utilized apps such as these if it were available when my siblings and I were younger and I hope to be that saving grace and peace of mind for you and your sweet pet(s). As a college student, I have a dog myself and he is a super social and fun loving pup who cant wait to be your pets new BFF! I can provide daily walks, runs, and tons of love and snuggles. I can provide a potty break as needed or every 2-4 hours. I live in a duplex with myself, my roommate and our sweet 3 year old pup. We have a large unfenced backyard. I am very active and am used to exercising my own dog so adding your pup to the mix would be easy! I am home most of the time and can be flexible with your pets current schedule. I have an animal so I know what goes into carving out quality time with your pet. Safety & love is the number one thing I strive for when caring for your animal. Pets are a part of the family and I want them to feel right at home when they are with me!
“Even in a snowstorm, Alexandra arrived to walk our dog. Winnie was THRILLED to get out in the snow & was BEAT after her 30 min jaunt. That’s the best you can ask for.”
“Stephanie is currently providing dog walking on a regular basis for our dog. She is very calm and does well interacting with him. Our dog can be reactive, but he is trusting of Stephanie. Stephanie has been very responsive to any questions I had about the dog walking and always provides a photo and a short update about the day’s walk. She always makes sure my dog is dressed appropriately for the weather from the coats and sweaters we have for him and is concerned and responsible for his safety on the walks.”

“Angela is a natural caregiver; she has a big heart for people and animals alike. I’ve known her for over 10 years and she has taken care of my pets on several occasions. She pays attention to detail, is a great communicator and has the warmest heart!”
