Our dogs were spoiled, we loved the pictures of them while we were gone! It was great knowing they were on walks, cuddling up with her and being loved. Thank you Sarah

About: I'm a young woman living in Ames, Iowa who wants to be a professional dog trainer. I currently work full time in a doggy daycare and boarding facility, as well as helping to provide small group structured time including treadmills, training, and enriching dogs' lives! I've been pet sitting for 10 years, have 3 years of veterinary experience, and have been working full time with dogs specifically for almost a year. Providing excellent care and enrichment to your dog or cat's day isn't a temporary gig I'm using to make more money, its a goal and experience I want to spend my entire life achieving! I have experience with many different behavioral problems both from family dogs as well as other people's pets in the work place, and understand that *every* dog and cat is different, and would love to learn about and work with each individuals' needs! I typically work from either 5 am to 3 pm, or 7 am to about 4 pm. With just over two weeks of notice, I'll happily adjust my work schedule to try and prioritize your pets' needs. I have over 4 years of experience with staying overnight in people's homes with their pets, as well as stopping in in the morning afternoon, and evening to care for pets, so I'm comfortable with both or a combination! I'm happy to communicate with and be flexible for anyone who's looking for pet care though! I have experience in a shelter environment, a veterinary environment, as well as various dog-specific care facilities! I grew up with multiple dogs in the home, and have professional experience with working with both dogs and cats, with and without behavioral and medical concerns. I have experience with being the sole provider of care for hospitalized pets over the weekend in a veterinary facility, as well as in-home pet care for animals of various ages, species, and needs. I'm confident in my ability to provide care that is as close to your pets' daily routine as possible, communicating as much or as little as desired, and ensuring you and your pets' happiness!

Hailey helped make me feel comfortable leaving my dog in her care and communicated throughout my trip to make sure I stayed in the loop. She was attentive and made sure that she had all the information she needed to fully take care of my dog before I left on my trip. Definitely hope to work with Hailey again in the future!

About: Currently in vet school, watched dogs and worked in vet clinics for 6+ years now, looking for an easy part time job during fall and spring semesters Currently in school, when I do dog sit I usually go mornings and evenings but my school schedule does allow for a lunch break so I can also squeeze in time then. I am very comfortable around all kinds of animals and I am confident in my care ability based on my vast amount of experience within clinics and dogsitting for various coworkers or neighbors

Arieanna is awesome. She was able to help me very last minute with dog sitting when I had a work trip and was flexible to any last minute changes. She made me feel assured that my dog was in good hands. My dog who is usually weary around strangers loved her and was even a little sad when she left. Highly recommend her services

AMAZING! Addison took incredible care of my Piper, she sent me wonderful photos and updates, and I returned home to a happy, healthy dog who wasn't traumatized in the least by me being gone for a week. I wish I could give her 10 stars. Addison - thank you so much! I will definitely be looking at booking with you again.

Katie pet sat and walked our dog for four years and did an exceptional job. She loves all pets and treats them as part of her family. We trusted her to stay in our home when we were away and always knew our pet would be well taken care of / fed, brushed, walked and hugged. I have seen her with other’s pets, always treating them with love and kindness. I would without reservation recommend Katie as a pet caregiver.

I have had the same dog sitter for nearly every occasion over the past 7 years. Suffice to say I was *terrified* when I realized I would need to find someone new to watch my dog over the Christmas holiday this past year. Like most pet owners, my dog is my whole world and the thought of leaving her with a stranger genuinely made me feel sick. As *soon* as Ellie and I met Kayla, that fear was gone and I immediately knew they would be fast friends and I would be able to take a trip away from home. Ellie INSTANTLY velcro'd onto Kayla and just from our first meeting to introduce us all I had zero doubt that Kayla had mine and my pet's best interests in mind. I am *eternally* grateful for the service she provided me and there is zero question whether I would hire her again. 5 stars isn't enough, thank you SO much Kayla!!!

Kenneth is much more than my friend! He is my savior, and keeper of my peace of mind when it comes to caring for my pets. Kenneth is extremely knowledgeable as well as genuinely loving and caring, with strict attention to the smallest of details. Whether it be dog, cat, reptile, or our feathered babies, he is the "go-to guy". I honestly can't imagine my babies in more capable hands. You would do well in having him on your team.

Our dogs loved Lindsay. One in particular is really shy and he just sauntered right up to her at first sight. She has a wonderful, calming personality.I highly recommend her.

April is the only person I trust to care for my pets. Each time, Ive asked her to just feed and check on them but she goes above and beyond to spend time with them and send me cute little videos! I trusted her in my house knowing what great care she would take of my animals. Her medical knowledge was also an asset for one of my fragile babies who needed to be closely watched and medicated. She also did great with my dog who tends to be selective about people. I couldn’t believe how much he loves her.
