Kathryn & Joseph K.
“Kathryn and Joe are the best! I have been looking for months for a place to bring my pup several days a week to play. We struck gold! Our pup absolutely loves his time with them. Can’t recommend enough.”
Cynthia & Mark H.
“My pup Popsicle loves Cynthia and gets so excited to see her! Cynthia gives excellent ‘pupdates’ and is super-communicative, so when you’re away from your pup (and missing them), you’ll get beautiful pics and updates. She treats my pup like family, and I’ve hired her again and again!”
“Cameron is a great with our pup and very easy to work with. He is a great communicator and gives great feedback when we pick up our dog. Finally, our dog loves Cameron and is always excited to get dropped off.”
“Jeanette did a great job watching Sammi. She sent several pictures and told us how well Sammi behaved. We will definitely have Jeanette watch Sammi again.”
“My dog Ruth loves coming to Valarie’s for daycare! Valarie always sends photos, plays with her, and takes her for a walk. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog and she gets excited when we drive to her house. Highly recommend!”
“Edith does a great job caring and loving our dog. She lets our dog socialize when needed and roams the yard for exercise. The home and neighborhood is very dog social and friendly. Lots of belly rubs and an occasional treat when deserving.”
“Elena and her husband were great pet sitters. Elena sent me pictures of my pup throughout the work day along with updates. She was also so flexible and accommodating when I got held up and work and could not pick my pup up until later than planned.”
“Wolfy had such a great day with Mary and her family. He can back very happy, and Mary sent several lovely photos of his time. Mary was also flexible with me when my plans changed after booking, which was so appreciated.”
“Robert always provides 5 star care for our dog. He comes home happy and exhausted every time. We would recommend Robert without any hesitation.”
“Hammy had an amazing weekend with Lauren! Communication was amazing and she sent me great updates during the day. I was so reassured that Hammy was well taken care of and happy with Lauren.”
“Sebastian is very much an animal lover. He took wonderful care of Ellie when she stayed with him. It was a relief to know that Ellie was in good hands.”
Priyanka "Pri" T.
“Pri was available to take Luna with a short notice. Which I appreciated. Luna had a great time playing and was well taken care of. Highly recommend her.”
“Drew was AMAZING with my dog. He sent me the cutest pictures of her and made sure that she was totally comfortable at all times. I have an old dog that needs a peaceful place to nap during the day and Drew’s home was a perfect fit for that. If you have a little snuggle-bug dog, then I would very highly recommend this sitter!!”
Kristin & Bruce M.
“Kristin, Bruce and their family are wonderfully kind, communicative, and attentive!! They were patient with my dog’s quirks, and we are excited for more doggie daycare with them!”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs since I was in my early 20s. I grew up with dogs, my entire life, including shelties and beagles. When I was in my early 20s, I adopted my first dog! After she passed, I started volunteering with Midwest beagle rescue and have fostered several beagles through them. I enjoy spending time with dogs and getting to know their individual personalities. My favorite types of dogs are seniors. I just love to give them all of the love that I possibly can, and have a lot of patience in dealing with their special needs. I am currently a remote employee and have lots of flexibility throughout the week. Pet care fits into my schedule and the way that it works best for you and your pet. I have a nice dog park near my house, as well as a fenced in area in my complex. I’m happy to take your dog on walks and have lots of experience with challenging beagles/runners! My home is clutter free and the resident cat is friendly with all pets. I’m happy to come to your home as well. When in someone else’s home, I try to leave it just the way I left it. The last thing that I want is you coming home to something unexpected.
“Jiayi always does an amazing job watching my dog! She has been doing doggy daycare weekly and just finished a week long boarding and took very good care of her! Always providing pictures and updates daily and easy to contact. Highly recommended!”
“Azaria was a great communicator and made us feel comfortable leaving our dogs with her right away! Our border collie enjoyed playing in the fenced in space and they were both treated to some couch time (lucky girls)! We’d definitely use her again. Highly recommend!”
Rebecca & Clara A.
“Rebecca and Clara could not have been nicer or more conscientious. They sent updates, photos and videos throughout the night. They seemed to really bond with my dog, and I am sure my dog had a great time playing with their dogs both in and outside, as well as snuggling with caregivers. Highly recommend and will be using often!”
“Holly was very receptive to caring for our dog on short notice when we had to be in Madison for a family member’s hospitalization. The home, fenced in yard, companionship of their dog Mocha was wonderful for our little guy. I could tell he was exercised and loved while in her care.”
“Chelsea is amazing and I knew right away that Archie was in great hands. He came home happy and relaxed. Ava and Leo were fantastic playmates! Thank you!”
