Gianna was very attentive and caring for our dog. It was a pleasure having her taking care of our fur-baby princess for four hours when we were out for dinner! Very happy and appreciate her help. Five paw prints!

Jessica and Josie were wonderful with Miss Ruby. Even understanding her occasional accident in the house as coming from anxiety. Possibly due to construction noises which were expected to be gone before Miss Ruby’s visit. It changed my perspective from paying for Dogcare to paying to have Miss Ruby share her joy with Josie and Jessica and their family. ???

Our dog had a great 3-night stay with Janice! She went for walks in the woods, snuggled with Janice’s son, and was extremely well cared for. Happy girl upon return. Thanks, Janice!

Trishul and Victor are the best! They were warm and welcoming to my two dogs and treated them with love and care. Trishul was communicative from the beginning and the experience was easy and reassuring. I recommend him highly!

About: I live on a farm in Hadley with my puppy, Blueberry. She LOVES all creatures. She will be 1 in April 2024. We have lots of land to explore and sniff. We have a dog play room (which has overflowed to other rooms). With your permission, we’d love to go on ice cream dates. All pups are allowed on all furniture (what else is furniture for?) Blueberry is my first dog as an adult. I had a cocker spaniel as a child (age 8-21). I’ve gotten pretty good at brushing with this fluffy, curly girl so can provide that if desired. I am a teacher (a reading specialist for kinders-2nd grade) and am available on weekends and school vacations. I will be available full time starting June 14. I have dog/house/cat sat occasionally. A fenced in area will be added to my yard soon for off-leash play. We would prefer to meet you and your pup first, but can be available for last-minute care. Free schools vacations and summers. Blueberry and I will be home 24/7 during your pup’s stay (except for maybe a quick run out for some food)!! I have a crate Blueberry doesn’t use if your pup would like that option. Blueberry and I can offer endless love and attention. We have lick mats, kongs, snuffle mats and about 500 toys.

My dog can be very vocal and hyper sometimes, but Kim was patient, friendly and very calm with him, and I was really happy with the experience. She is very professional at what she does, and I highly recommend her if you live near Fort Lee, NJ!

Jessica and her family were the BEST. I am very particular about who watches my dog as he is my service dog and baby. She sent me pictures every day and kept me updated numerous times throughout the day. Couldn’t have expected anything more from this experience! :)

Dennis Hopper has not stayed with someone he didn't know before this visit. Julia was very understanding. She sent me great pics of him clearly enjoying himself, which put my mind at ease. Julia's children are equally sweet, and it was clear that Dennis liked them all.

Brielle has watched Frank multiple times and is a wonderful dog sitter. I always feel at ease when I am away knowing Frank is being loved for and cared to just like he was with me. She is very easy to communicate with and sends constant updates and pictures so I dont miss him too much. Frank is always excited to see Brielle again and even gets sad for a short time when I pick him up. She conducts herself in a very professional manner and I would highly recommend her for anyone feeling a little worried about leaving your little one behind. 5/5 STARS!!!!

While my Coco stayed with Alex & Adam, they updated how Coco is doing every day with pictures and movies, which really helped me figure out Coco's status. From the movies that Coco was playing with their children, it looked like that Coco really enjoyed staying with them.
