I could not recommend her any more, she was clear, communicative, thorough and thoughtful. Our sweet older dog was well cared for and loved while we were away.

Grace was wonderful with our Carly. She was on time and very pleasant. Most of all, Carly would wag her tail like crazy each time she saw Grace. That tells it all.

Sabrina A. Was amazing and took such good care of our pets. We have an older dog and a younger dog and she did an awesome job on making sure their needs were met for walks, feeding time and play time was smooth. I would definitely recommend her services as she is responsible, caring, and professional.

Vin has always done a great job of caring for our THREE pets! We have one cat and two dogs, they can be a handful at times for sure. Vin does well balancing all their needs. It feels good to know that they are safe and well cared for while we are gone. Vin always leaves our home clean and put together after pet sitting, we are very grateful to have someone so reliable.

From the start, Dan has been great! He responded quickly to my inquiry, set up a time to get to know our pup and his routine, and has been extremely flexible with our schedule. He took our German shepherd out on a long walk and came back later in the day for some play time and tired him out good! I would recommend Dan to anyone looking for a dog walker or sitter☺️

About: From volunteering at my local animal shelter to helping out neighbors, friends, and family, I have over nine years of experience caring for animals in addition to always having pets of my own. I'm currently enrolled in college courses, but my schedule is very flexible, and I have lots of free time, during the week and on weekends, for pet care. I love spending time with animals. Between feeding, walking, socializing, and cleaning up after dogs and cats, I take very thorough care of my pets.

Lea was the absolute best! We were left in a bind last minute the day before Christmas Eve and she was able to accommodate us for 2 walks/day until we got home- was able to come over that same evening we reached out to her to do a quick meet and greet and Nola loved her right away. We immediately felt so much relief trusting her to take great care of her. Always made sure to give us an update, even played with her indoors when our stubborn Nola who hates rain wouldn’t go outside :) would 100% rebook and recommend to all!

Emma Green has been my best friend since third grade. She has so many great qualities that makes her fit for any job, but especially a pet caregiver. First, and probably most important for this specifically, is that she loves animals. Whenever there is a stray, Emma is the first one to want to go and make sure it is okay, seeing if there is anything she can do to help. She has fostered kittens and has had cats of her own, and this love spreads to many other animals as well. Emma is also extremely responsible. When caring for someone's pet, you want to choose someone who will do their best to keep them safe and happy. Emma is the perfect person for this because she will care for anyone's pet as though they are her own. They will be fed on time, let out if needed, and anything else that is needed will be done. Lastly, Emma is kind and respectful. She is a great employee and very trustworthy, and gets along with everyone she meets. I think she is the perfect choice for this job.

About: I am the owner of a deaf dog named Finn and a cat named Pumpkin. I would like to share my love for animals with your pets! As a college student, I have a very open schedule and would love to take my free time out of my day to care of your animal(s)! In both my home and providing care for clients' animals, I believe it is important to make sure I am committed to keeping a safe, protective environment for the pets I am taking care of. Engaging in regular exercise and playtime is very important. As well as making sure the pets have access to fresh water, meals, and a clean space.

Libby is an incredible pet caregiver. She has taken care of my dog while I was away on several occasions. Ensuring he is well fed, taken outside on long walks, and cared for. She is very responsible and timely with everything she does and taking care of pets is no exception.

About: To speak a little bit about myself, my family has two cats and a dog who I have grown up with for majority of my life. So I am very used to living with animals. I also am known as a lover of animals. Personally, I have my own cat back at home who is the brown one pictured on my profile. I’ve had Kiwi for about three years now. I have also pet sat for my neighbors going on multiple years now. Doing so I have cared for their fish, dog, geckos, and cats. So I would say that I have a versatile, but also well-rounded experience caring for animals. I also am very receptive to specific instructions, so if your pet is in need of specific care, I am happy to help how I can. I am a full-time college student and I have classes on Monday to Friday from 11 AM to 3 PM. Before or after these times & also on the weekends, I’m incredibly flexible. Please keep in mind that I will be taking a bus to come visit your pet, so notifying me of services needed in advance is important to me! As a college student in a dorm, it is my preference to come to client’s homes and care for their pets there. I am also open to walking pets in the general neighborhood as well. I am very experienced entertaining, walking, feeding, and generally caring for both cats and dogs. That being said, I am open to working with any other animals, as I also have experience working with birds, aquatic animals and reptiles.
