Lauren did a great job taking care of my pup, who is very shy and anxious. Lauren was patient and gentle and allowed time for my pup to warm up. She sent lots of updates so I had peace of mind while I was away.

Kristina did a fantastic job taking care of my 2 dogs and cat while I was away! Her detailed updates and myriad of adorable pics gave me confidence everyone was being very well taken care of while I was away. We'll definitely be booking Kristina again in the future

CJ did a great job with Coco!! I left Coco with CJ for about 4.5 days; he sent updates every day with photos to help ease my worry, and gave Coco lots of love and attention while I was gone. He also left the house definitely cleaner than how I had left it. Thanks CJ!

Matt was great- took good care of our pup while we were away for the weekend and sent pics each day we were away. He left our home clean, stripped the bed, and even shoveled our driveway when we got snow while we were gone! Recommended! Would definitely use Matt again.

Hallie is wonderful, professional, and knowledgeable about dog behavior. She house sat my two dogs for a long weekend, and left everything clean and orderly. Hallie did a lot of enrichment activities with the dogs, and even made some Kongs for them! She put me at ease by updating me often describing how my dogs were doing and sending pics. She provided details like what they'd been up to and how they seemed emotionally. Hallie also was flexible and personable. The house was clean when we arrived and the dogs were happy campers. I highly recommend her!

Emilia took care of our indoor cat Marta wile we were away on vacation. Marta is a sensitive animal and can sometimes be agitated. We returned to find a serene and happy cat who had been well attended to in our absence! I also know Emilia as a work colleague and have found her to be personable and responsible about deadlines and assignments. I highly recommend her as a pet caregiver!

About: I’ve had and taken care of my dogs throughout the years ever since I was a little girl! I’ve always had at least one dog in the house since I can remember and have trained them myself along with the help of family members. I have had experience with puppies and experience with senior dogs. I take my dog to the groomers regularly and always prioritize enough play time and exercise throughout the day! I’m currently working at an elementary school throughout the week. My day ends at roughly 2:30 and I still have so much free time to spend! I am confident I can give your pet all the time that they need! I do not see my schedule or weekly routine prohibiting me in any way to giving your pet the care they need during the day! I have a little chihuahua who spends most of her time inside but goes for the occasional walk around my quiet neighborhood! I live in a very quiet neighborhood with little to no busy traffic which makes it perfect for taking pets on walks safely and no distractions! I also live close to SugarLoaf which is perfect for taking dogs on the trail/ for a hike!!

Gabriel took great care of Wylie when I was away for 4-5 days last week. We easily scheduled our meet and greet ahead of time and Gabriel won my anxious guy over very quickly. During my trip, he was great at communicating arrivals, departures, and with sending updates and photos. Most importantly, Wylie was happy, relaxed, and very tired when I got home. In addition, Gabriel took great care of my place. Would definitely trust him to sit for Wylie again in the future!

Kim was incredible. I was in the hospital and everything had to be coordinated through my daughter. Kim sent tons of pictures and she was there for Gemma when she had a seizure. She went over and above moving boxes that were delivered for me. My daughter loved working with her so I knew we were in good hands. Anyone needing pet care will be lucky to have her.

Molly knows what it takes to put both families and pets at ease. From the moment we met, she spoke softly and gradually drew out the relaxed behavior hiding within our skittish two-year-old rescue. Her questions showed us that she is a confident, responsible and loving individual. By the time we returned, our pup and Molly had played games, had dinner and walked happily through our neighborhood as old pals. Thank you, Molly!

Cathryn is wonderful! She works in a veterinary hospital for her day job and handles pets of all kinds. She has been great the times she has watched my dog Brody and he is always sad to see her go! Anyone would be lucky to have Cathryn watch their dog for them!

About: I have taken care of dogs of friends and family ever since I was a kid. I am very attuned to each individual’s needs; I read dogs’ body language before they feel the need to escalate to aggressive behaviors. I just graduated from college and I’m looking for various gig work to do. I currently do contract work as a medical interpreter, and the hours, though limited, are pretty random, so I can usually work around your schedule. Sadly, I rent and cannot care for another pet at my place. When caring for a pet at your place or on a walk, I follow safety principles, standard procedures, and your instructions, and on top of that, sometimes taking a more individualized approach based on your pet’s needs, preferences and mood.
