“Kirsten made Arlo feel right at home! She really knew how to get him acclimated, and he had a great time playing with the other dogs. We would definitely consider booking with her again.”
“Hannah was a great help for watching my pup during the holidays. I would book again with her. She made sure he was comfortable and well taken care of!”
“Anastacia is my new favorite dog sitter! And I think my dogs’ favorite too! She was kind enough to take them for a day with very short notice. Her dog Chester was very friendly and gentle with my 2 little babies and they all got along from the start. I received pics and updates throughout the day, and I was satisfied that they were being well taken care of by Anastacia. She has a nice place and a beautiful little fenced yard. I will definitely be using Anastacia’s services again.”

“Alexis and Matt were amazing! My usual dogsitter had to cancel last min and they were able to accept a same-day booking (which can be a challenge). Communication was excellent, they sent lots of photos, and even did some training with him. Cujo came home happy and exhausted. I highly recommend and would absolutely book with them again!”
About: As a dog sitter with a genuine passion for dogs, I go above and beyond to ensure their well-being and happiness. One of my special skills is my ability to establish a strong bond with dogs of all breeds and sizes. I have a natural intuition when it comes to understanding their needs, preferences, and behaviors. This allows me to tailor my care to suit each individual dog, providing them with the attention, exercise, and mental stimulation they require. I can reinforce good behavior, work on commands, and help dogs develop proper manners. This skill not only enhances their overall behavior but also contributes to a harmonious and enjoyable experience for both the dog and their owner. With my reliable and trustworthy nature, you can have peace of mind knowing that your beloved canine companion is in capable hands. I strive to exceed expectations and provide a level of care that sets me apart as a dog sitter who truly understands and cherishes the unique bond between dogs and their owners. Pet care is an integral part of my daily and weekly routine. I understand that consistency and reliability are crucial for the well-being of our furry friends. Here's how pet care fits into my schedule: On a daily basis, I allocate dedicated time for feeding, exercise, and playtime with the pets under my care. This ensures that they receive the necessary physical activity and mental stimulation they need to stay happy and healthy. Whether it's taking them for walks, engaging in interactive play sessions, or providing enrichment activities, I prioritize their daily needs. In addition to daily care, I also incorporate regular grooming and hygiene practices into my routine. This includes brushing their coats, cleaning their ears, trimming nails, and ensuring they are clean and comfortable. Maintaining their hygiene not only promotes their overall well-being but also helps to prevent any potential health issues. Furthermore, I am attentive to any specific medical or dietary requirements that a pet may have. If there are medications to be administered, I ensure they are given at the prescribed times and in the correct dosage. I also follow any dietary restrictions or special feeding instructions provided by the pet owner. Communication with pet owners is another essential aspect of my routine. I provide regular updates on their pet's activities, behavior, and overall well-being. This helps to keep the owners informed and reassured that their beloved pets are receiving the utmost care and attention. Overall, pet care is not just a job for me; it's a genuine passion. I integrate it seamlessly into my daily and weekly routine, ensuring that the pets under my care receive the love, attention, and specialized care they deserve. When it comes to caring for pets, whether it's in my own home or in the client's home, safety, trust, and creating a comfortable environment are my top priorities. The specific approach may vary depending on the service I offer, so let me outline how I address these aspects in each scenario: In my home: 1. Safety: I ensure that my home is pet-proofed, removing any potential hazards and creating a secure environment. This includes securing fences, covering electrical outlets, and removing toxic plants or substances. 2. Trust: I establish a trusting relationship with the pets by providing them with ample attention, affection, and reassurance. I maintain a calm and nurturing atmosphere, allowing them to feel comfortable and secure in my home. 3. Environment: I create a pet-friendly environment with designated areas for rest, play, and feeding. I provide comfortable bedding, toys, and enrichment activities to keep them engaged and entertained. In the client's home: 1. Safety: I conduct a thorough assessment of the client's home to identify any potential safety concerns. I ensure that doors, windows, and gates are secure, and I keep a close eye on the pet to prevent any accidents or escapes. 2. Trust: I build trust with the pet by following their established routines and providing consistent care. I respect their boundaries and preferences, allowing them to feel at ease in their familiar surroundings. 3. Environment: I maintain a clean and organized environment, keeping the pet's living areas tidy and free from hazards. I provide familiar bedding, toys, and any other comforts that the pet is accustomed to. In both scenarios, I prioritize open communication with the pet owners. I provide regular updates on their pet's well-being, behavior, and any notable observations. This helps to build trust and ensures that the owners are informed and reassured about their pet's care. Overall, whether in my home or the client's home, I strive to create a safe, trusting, and comfortable environment for the pets under my care. Their well-being and happiness are my utmost priority, and I take every measure to ensure they feel loved, secure, and content.
“Our dog loves going to Saphara’s! He goes for day care a couple times a week and is always so excited to see Saphara and her dogs. She is super responsive and reliable. Would highly recommend Saphara to anyone who needs dog sitting services!”
About: I have always been an animal lover, I'm the kind of person who will treat any animal at the same level as any human, in a good way obviously. I have a degree in Biology, with an emphasis in animal behavior, so I am naturally curious and patient around all animals. I'm very communicative and will probably overshare how your pup or kitty is doing, especially if that's what you prefer. I'm currently a stay at home mom who got fired by her 9 year old who decided he'd rather spend time with kids his own age than me. My schedule is rather flexible during the day, and evenings can be arranged with more of a notice. I can do drop ins or walks. I have experience administering meds if thats what your animal needs. I don't have any breed restrictions as long as you tell me all the details I need to know about your pet so I can keep your animal, as well as myself, happy and safe. I am available most of the day and evenings because I am a part-time grad student and stay at home mom. This makes me very flexible in various weekly routines. I've had multiple pets with various needs, whether they are runners or sensitive to environments. I approach any animals needs with incredible detail and understand that pets are family.
“Cara provided wonderful care and several updates throughout the day. Our dogs were comfortable and happy during their day long stay! We’d be happy for them to stay with Cara again in the future.”
“Kyrstal was incredible! She was very flexible and accommodating and great with communication! She took lots of pictures each day and always wrote a sweet note each day! My sweet Jeter absolutely loved being over there and fit in so well, which warms my heart :) we will for sure schedule future play days with Krystal again!!”
“Alissa was responsive and attentive with my terrier, who's in a splint (6 weeks out with a broken foot). Her pup Snacks got along well with him, very mellow. He got some lap time in, which he loves! He responded well which tells me he was comfortable there. I definitely recommend Alissa, and will keep her number handy. Thank you, Alissa!”
“An amazing sitter! I will definitely be using Wiebke again! Wonderful with sensitive dogs & senior dogs ??! My jellybeans was very happy when I picked him up after daycare ?.”
“Benji has helped take care of many of our animals over the years, including indoor cats (Gemini, Lady, Salt, Pepa, and Frankie) and dogs (Cassie Lab/springer spaniel mix 50lb, Dynamite German wire hair pointer 80lb, and Egypt Chihuahua/Papillon mix 10lb. Our animals were always well-taken care of and never stressed when we returned from out-of-town trips, which is such a rare commodity in a pet sitter. Even our very shyest animals would come out for their attentions and really liked Benji. Besides pet and house-sitting, Benji would also take our dogs on walks for us during some of our busiest periods in life. It was so reassuring to know our animate were getting the exercise and affection that they deserved at times we were stretched too thin ourselves. I cannot recommend them highly enough for your animal care. They were also very respectful and responsible when house-sitting. We never worried when they were there.”
“It looks like Winnie had an amazing time playing in the kiddie pool. Dominique was very sweet and great at communicating in a timely fashion. Would 100% recommend her service and would go again.”
“Kiko and Buddy has a great time at Shadie’s day care while I had my floors redone at my house. On the last day Buddy didn’t even want to come home!”
“Her family is great with Dog's! She boarded our 2 year old pug for a few days and we had no worries. We got constant updates and photos without any request from our end. We will most definitely use her agin in the future!”
“Fantastic! Great communication, lovely people and I felt completely comfortable leaving my dog with them knowing she would have lots of supervision. She came home happy and tired, and seemed to have a great time. Highly, highly recommend!”
“Melanie was great! She was responsive and super trustworthy. Our dogs had a blast and we felt very at ease knowing they were in good hands. We got nice updates and pics which is always so nice to not have to ask for those ourselves. Absolutely recommend!”
“This was the first time I’ve used the app. Kelsie responded quickly and helped make the whole experience easier. She updated me all day and sent me pictures of him. He was sad and she tried everything to make him feel better. I dropped him off very early and picked him up very late and she accommodated me perfectly. I play softball for the college and definitely will be using her again.”
“Andrea was super responsive, sent pictures, and took our puppy on so many walks! Our pup was so happy when we picked her up, would definitely recommend!”
“Anne took really good care of my dog. communicating with her was easy, I'll use her service again! She was respectful of my space,and I returned to a clean home.”
