“Traisaun is great with all of our animals. The dogs love him spending time with them, the cat loves to snuggle with him, and the rabbit loves all of the attention he gets from Traisaun. You won’t be disappointed with Traisaun ( and neither will your pets!!).”
“Kara is an absolute pleasure. Every time Bailey sees Kara her tail can’t stop wagging.. It makes us so happy when we leave knowing Bailey is in such good hands”

“Emily was very patient with our somewhat difficult pups and left our house spotless! Wiggins had the best time with her. Thanks Emily ☺️”
About: Friendly husband/wife couple looking to babysit a hypoallergenic dog. We have experience working with a variety of dogs that; require a lot of medical attention, have anger issues, trust issues, anxiety, social insecurities, and require a some leash training. Our last dog lived to a very happy and spoiled 17 years old. We believe that all dogs respond well to love and affection. We will always give your babies extra care and make sure to treat them with as much love as we did for own dogs 🐶.People describe us as kind, nice, warm hearted, and clean. We do not drink 🍹 or smoke 💨. please consider us to take care of your little ones :) We work from home, with plenty of time all day or night to watch after your dog. We are homebodies that rarely go out. We own a Mercedes sprinter van that can easily secure and transport you dog in a provided cage. We have a nice home in the Squirrel Hill area with a large fenced in back yard. If you prefer, we would be happy to house sit while you are away on vacation. We always have to meet in public for a first time introduction.
“Grace and her daughter too excellent care of my dog and sent frequent photos and updates while I was gone. Fast to respond to questions and initial inquiry for sitting. I strongly recommend.”
“I identify as a crazy dog mom- I get nervous entrusting my dog Blue’s safety with anyone other than myself or my fiancé. That being said, I would 100% trust Jacqui to watch my dog and here is why: Jacqui will take care of your dog with the same amount of love and affection that you would yourself, as well as holding to your high (sometimes ridiculously so, in my case) standards. I was a typical “new mom” and was overly cautious with my new best friend. As roommates, Jacqui babysat for me while I was gone and she was very intentional about taking care of Blue in the way that she knew I was comfortable with. Jacqui not only greatly exceeds (soars WELL beyond, really) the bare minimum for care, but she will also bond and care very deeply for your pet. I’ve never met an animal that didn’t immediately take to her, and us dog moms can agree the pups are excellent judges of character. This means that not only can you rest assured that your dog is in wonderful hands, but that your dog will be extremely excited to see their friend Jacqui when she comes to visit. As her former roommate and longtime friend, I can attest full heartedly to Jacqui’s impeccable character as a human being, and I want you to know that you can feel completely comfortable welcoming her into your home and pet’s lives. It would be very difficult to find a better care giver for your best friend. I couldn’t recommend Jacqui more to take care of your babies!”
“Stephanie is fantastic. We had Stephanie house sit for us while we were on vacation. Our pup had a great time and the house looked as good (perhaps even better) than we left it. She sent so many photos too!”
“Garreth was a fantastic choice for our household and fur babies. he made sure everyone was loved and cared for and was very communicative with us while we were away. He left our home clean and our babies happy. I can’t praise him enough for his work with us and with all of his pet clients. I will be reaching out again when we’re in need.”
“Alicia was wonderful to work with and took phenomenal care of our sweet girl, Ellie. I would happily hire Alicia again in the future. Fantastic experience!”
“Thanks again, Sam! Remi was happy and excited to see us when we got back home and the house was tidy. I appreciate the small details, too - cookies, mail on the table. These helped us bleary-eyed travelers snuggle the pup and relax. Definitely rebooking for our next travel. REMI has so much fun when Sam is here. Thank you for all the updates. I love seeing his happy face while we are gone and know he is getting lots of love while we are away.”
“Jen is terrific with all dogs. She has two herself and during a period of time I was laid up, she was able to walk my dog several times a day. She is responsible, kind and loving with dogs, looks out for them and their needs. If I wasn’t moving away, she would be supplementing my own walks. I highly recommend her. Deborah V.”
“Marisa watch our two dogs for nine days and we came home to a clean house and happy pups. Both of our dogs needed medication and can be picky eaters but she was comfortable with these concerns. Would definitely use her again!”
“Heather was absolutely incredible! Our puppy was a new addition to the family so I was nervous that he might be too anxious to walk with someone new but Heather was perfect with him! He went on multiple walks and even gave her a kiss by the end of the week ? 10/10”
About: I’ve worked as a pet care specialist at a local pet care company where I really gained a love and appreciation for all different kinds of pets. I’ve also taken care of my family pet and neighbors/friends pets for years and have enjoyed getting to know and work with all kinds of dogs and cats! I’m currently a student with the time and passion to work with pets outside of my classes and school work. I generally have time before 9 am or after 5pm or 6pm most week days, with lots of time from Friday-Sunday. With my previous pet care experience, I’ve become great at working with a pets routine and getting them in a crate if needed. Additionally, any specific pet care instructions that are left by a client can and will be followed to provide the best care for each pet!

“Abbey has grown up with dogs, both large and small. She has been dog sitting for us specifically for the last 5 years. Two of our dogs require medications and a decent amount of help with things like getting up and down steps and Abbey graciously takes on all those tasks. In addition to taking care of our 4 legged family, she waters plants, brings in the mail and generally takes care of the house when we are away. She’s willing to spend the night and she even lets the dogs sleep with her.”
“Sydney did a great job taking care of our special needs dog and cat for a week while we were on vacation. She was responsive during the booking process and throughout her stay. She took great care of my dog who needs extra care did to diabetes and a recent surgery.6”
“Jaxson was fantastic. We loved the pictures sent daily and they did so well with our dog who is often reactive to strangers. Will be requesting them again in the future.”
About: Hi there! My name is Kayla and for the past decade I have personally owned 7 dogs and 2 cats. As well as worked with my Aunt who rescues animals from as close to Pittsburgh and as far away as China! I work with her to re-home fosters even though many have become foster fails on my part! Lol I truly love animals and will treat them like they are my very own fur children. You can trust I will take great care and make your pets miss you a little less while you’re gone! I work as a online personal trainer and fitness coach so I am able to work pretty flexible hours to meet your needs! I make my own hours so with enough notice, I can easily move my schedule around as needed. I live right across the street from a park to play in and for potty breaks! As well as a grass pad on my deck that is functional for smaller/medium sized dogs. I live in 3 bedroom apartment and have lots of room to board dogs who are crate trained as well as non crate trained dogs/cats.
