Pet Sitting in Arlington
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
About: I have three dogs of my own. Two being large breeds, and one small. All three of them came to me with their own quirks, but after many hours of consistent reward-based training, they all have become well rounded dogs. I understand that our pets are family, so finding the best person to watch them can be difficult! I went years without going on vacation due to not finding that perfect fit for my dogs. I previously worked at an animal shelter where I fit dogs and cats with their perfect homes. My job was to get to know the animals and adopt them out to appropriate families. After spending time walking and playing with the various dogs, I had to note their specific quirks. It was important to make adopters aware of what each specific dog needed. Some were slow to warm up and needed a quiet home. Others had high energy and needed an active home. I understand that every animal is different, so each pet will require a slightly different kind of care. The same goes for cats! While working in the shelter, I came across a wide variety of cats. Some were shy and slow to warm up while others were outgoing. With my ability to read the body language of both cats and dogs coupled with my experience in handling various quirks, I will comfortably and confidently care for your animal(s). I’ll enjoy doing it too! I’m currently a stay at home mom with a one year old daughter. My availability is very open, but that is only if my daughter is able to be with me. She is perfectly happy being in a carrier on my back. That is how she falls asleep for naps often times anyway! I live on unfenced acreage, so recall training is super important for my dogs. While they have free reign of the house and yard while we are home, they have been crate trained for when we are gone. We spend a lot of time playing fetch outside and having puppy play dates. Our dogs also accompany us on our runs, hikes, and car rides.
About: I grew up with dogs, and was responsible for feeding, walking, and training them since they were puppies. Since then I have owned a multitude of animals, including more dogs, a cat or two, and reptiles. I have volunteered in animal care settings since I was a teenager, and am comfortable with dogs, cats, and pets of any age and/or breed. Friends and family members have had me housesit for them and take care of their pets, and it's given me a lot of experience over the years. My family also has a rescued Maltese/terrier mix, Dixie, who's been part of our family for the past few years! I'm a stay at home mom, so I have a flexible time-frame to take care of your fur-babies. I take care of our family dog and go on daily walks and/or do enrichment activities with her. I always make sure that pets in my home have space, a clean and comfortable environment, and plenty of rest or exercise (depending on their needs). I can provide whatever works best for you and your pet/pets!
“Kayla did such an amazing job! Her daily check-ins were great, and funny! I loved all the pictures! ? She took wonderful care of my pup, and I know Luna had a great time while we were away! ?”
About: Hello 👋 😃 I’ve grown up around dogs my whole life and currently have two sweet and playful small-medium dogs of my own (terrier mixes- both rescues). Additionally I have been a dog sitter for friends and family for many years. My house has a fenced backyard and a doggy door, so there is plenty of room to run in and out and play/ potty at their leisure. I am currently on a break from the 9-5 work hustle, so am home most days and have plenty of time to spend loving on your pup! I am happy to follow your specific care instructions, and crate if you prefer. At my place, I am generally ok with pets on the couch.
“Yicel has been a great friend of mine for the past couple of years. She is sweet, kind, caring and someone I would 100% trust when it comes to my fur babies. The love she has for her own pets is over the moon and she treats any pet that comes her way as one of her owns!”
“Look no further! Nicole is the answer to any furbaby needs you may have. This young lady is absolutely amazing, she is so much more than just having someone who is reliable and safe for your 4 legged family member! She truly, and wholeheartedly cares about your animal, and your sense of security! Nicole obviously does this because she LOVES what she does!! I highly recommend her!!”
“Thank you for doing a wonderful job checking in on my kitty's while I was away. I appreciated the daily updates and the photos from your visits.”
About: I’ve taken care of others’ pets and had my own for most of my life. I am reliable and caring in everything I do, especially when I’m dealing with your best friend. I absolutely love dogs and getting to spend time with yours would be amazing! I work short hours each day and am able to be there any time I am not at work. I also have weekends off and am able to commit the entire weekend to caring for your buddy! I care for pets by giving them lots of love and attention and paying attention to their signals. Dogs are smart and all you have to do it listen to what they’re telling you!
“My two dogs were well taken care off during 3 1hr drop ins over 3 days, while their pawrents went out to have fun! They got so much play time and I could see the happiness on their faces in all the pictures. And she takes really good pictures too! I of course had a few instructions and everything was followed. 100 gold stars!”
“Jason made himself available to care for my 10 years old Vizsla on several occasions. He was diligent about loving him, staying by his (nervous) side and walking him on very long leash walks. Jason is attentive and patient. He was always in communication with me and even sent pictures. I’d be happy to host Jason in my home again, for an evening or for overnights. He’s respectful of my space and loving to my sensitive pup.”

“My husband and I are long-time Rover users, but we moved to a new area and needed to find someone more local. We hired Dorian to take care of our two kitties for 8 days, twice a day. Dorian is as good as it gets! She was puntual, caring, very responsive and went above and beyond the job description. She will be our new go-to sitter in the future. We would give her 10 stars if we could!”
“Baylee went above and beyond caring for our dog. She stayed in touch while we were away and ensured our home safe and well kept. Our dog enjoyed her company and was happy in her care while we were away.”
“Prompt and did a great job!!!”
“Lauren was very friendly and she took a good care of our cat. This was our first cat sitting experience and we were a bit nervous about how things were going with our kitty. Lauren's prompt responses to our texts puts us to ease. She texted a concise summery obour her visit and included a couple pictures of our cat on each visit. We hope that Lauren will be available for drop-in visits next time we are out!”
