“Pebbles is a very special soul whom is close to nature, all animals, and her surroundings. Growing up on a ranch her love for all animals is well known to all who know her. She has a way with animals especially dogs! You can count on her treating each dog as if it’s her own!”
“Carolina is one of the most dedicated, compassionate, and loving pet caregivers I have had the pleasure to work with. She treats every fur baby like her own; and is knowledgeable, professional, and creative. I highly recommend Carolina!”
“I have a cat and a dog that Olivia has taken care of a couple times in the past, so I have known her for over a year. Olivia did a great job with communication leading up to and during her time as a sitter. She followed my directions exactly as intended and left my animals happy and doing great! I would definitely recommend her and use her to watch my pets again because of her communication abilities, ability to pay attention to small details such as medications needed (for my dog specifically), and because of her happy demeanor!”
“Olivia is great at caring for both dogs and cats. I left my very large dog who can be a handful at times with her for a week while I was traveling and he was so well taken care of. She has her own dog as well as her boyfriends two dogs so mine had great company during his stay. I got plenty of photos of hikes and dog cuddles while I was away and she truly treats every pet as her own.”

About: I’ve been around animals all my life! Dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and rodents! I’m comfortable with pets of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments. I have worked around dogs that are reactive with people, other dogs, and objects as well. In the past, I worked for pet boarding/daycare facilities, as well as grooming, and have 2 years of professional pet care experience. I’m trying to make Rover my full time work, so my availability is open 7 days a week! Your pets can be watched worry free any time, all week!! House sittings: I will follow any instructions you have for me to ensure your pet stays happy with their regular routine. I provide walks (I’d love to take your dog to beaches/on hikes if you approve), lots of potty breaks, playtimes, and cuddle sessions! If your pet needs medication, I am capable of administering orally, topically, and through injection. (If your pet is one that needs to be pilled, I am comfortable doing that as well.) Drop ins: I will ensure your pet gets any food/medications needed. I will provide potty breaks, playtime, and lots of cuddles for your pet. I can provide a walk if asked, but it will stay within your neighborhood. Walks: Service includes walking inside or outside your neighborhood. I always provide water breaks at the end. I can assure you that you’ll have a happy, tired pup by the end of it!
“I have relied on Alanna for years for caring for my two cats, who I consider my fur babies. I can rest assured that they are fed, have water and a clean litter box. Alanna has formed a relationship with them and I know they are well-loved and stimulated with play when they are in her care. I highly recommend Alanna as a responsible and caring pet sitter. I also love the picture and video updates she sends me!”
“Sheridan is a wonderful "pack leader" as she proclaims on her business card. She has lots of experience as a dog owner herself and takes care of every dog as if her very own. If you're lucky, you'll even get her homemade dog food she feeds to her beloved Sapphy! Highly recommended for all walking and/or stayovers.”
“Very happy we found Marcus! We had a nice walk and visit for a meet and greet and my Jellybean liked him right away. Marcus is very friendly, trustworthy and a great communicator. He confirmed plans for our first walk and provided updates and pictures which is so appreciated. Marcus was flexible to do two shorter walks for my dog instead of one long one as she is recovering from knee surgery. We will definitely be keeping Marcus on as a regular!”
About: I have been actively caring for animals since 2020 and have found such great fulfillment through it. Your furry friend's needs come first and I always make sure everyone feels secure and happy in every visit 🥰 I am able to do overnights any day of the week, and have more availability to do any visits after 1:30pm. This is always flexible and will always find a way to make sure your needs are being met! With any new animal, I start off slow and let them have the opportunity to sniff or be near me without feeling pressured. I analyze the animal's behavior and pick up any cues on how they're feeling before proceeding. Building trust is very important to me and I like to build connections with the animals!
About: Growing up, I have had multiple dogs, cats, birds, and other types of pets. From a young age, I learned how to take care of all kinds of pets, including feeding, cleaning cages, walking, and play. Family, friends, and neighbors have asked me to take care of their pets, both long and short-term. I adore animals and understand the responsiblity that goes along with owning a pet. I am reliable, responsible, and dependable. I also send pictures to my clients to show them how happy their pet is while they are away and make sure that I follow all of the owner's guidelines and preferences. I care for each pet as if they are my own. I work 8am - 5 pm on the weekdays and my weekends are fully open. I am able to stay overnights and care for pets after work (walk, feed, bathing). For the holidays, I am usually local so I can take care of pets while the client is away. I make sure to follow all of the client's instructions so the pet feels secure and comfortable. I follow a feeding and walking schedule, as well as providing care and attention. I like to ask for an emergency contact list, including numbers to a preferred vet and anyone else they deem important. I also ask the owner any specific details that is important to caring for their pet. I understand that each pet has their own personality and preferences. In the past, owners have enjoyed when I send pictures and text updates.

“Mark was great! He was able to meet for my last minute need. I had a meeting to go to but had my dog with me so he met at my meeting location and walked my dog for an hour while I attended my meeting. Huge help for the day!”
“Tamara loves animals, can be completely trusted, is very smart, communicates well, and has great judgment. When we come back home from our trip, there was a note left on the table stating her last visit. She checked in via text to make sure we got home and the dogs were in good shape. Absolutely loved that!”
