“Mary Kay is a professional! She was reliable, thoughtful and gave us so much peace of mind while we were away. She sent frequent pics, had a consistent routine for our dog and took extra care of our home. It felt like having family staying and she went above and beyond.”
“Randi stayed with our little guy over a long weekend and did a great job. She was super communicative and sent lots of pics. Came home to a happy healthy doggo! Highly recommended”
“Hannah was fantastic! She took great care of my dog, Marnie, for several days. She took her on walks, played with her outside, and cuddled up with her on the couch♥️ Marnie looked so happy and at peace in every photo! She also left our house very clean after leaving. Would definitely book Hannah again for dog sitting”
“Tiffany took great care of Jackson while we were away. She was very sweet with him and kept us updated throughout the weekend. She was very pleasant to work with and we would be happy to have her care for Jackson again in the future :)”
About: Hi! I'm Mary. I live with my Pomeranian, Jax. Jax and I spend our days going on walks, trips to the various dog parks, and playing with all his favorite toys. I grew up around dogs my whole life; my family had a Black Lab, a YorkiePoo, and a Boxer-mix growing up so I have handled all types and sizes of dogs. I've handled pets that have been both blind, and deaf, so I know how to offer specialized care for these animals. I hope I can meet your dog(s) soon and I can't wait to be their new friend! Please reach out if you have any questions about me or my care! I work from home M-F so can be available all day for care and frequent attention. I have a dog of my own and we go out every 2 hours, which I can cater to including your dog with that cadence or follow your preferred cadence. I care for your pets as if I would care for my own! I have always ensured that any dog I take on whether as a sitter or walker receives the same love and attention as my own.
“Amazing! Poppy was well taken care of and I could enjoy my time away knowing she was safe and happy. Candais was wonderful and I highly recommend her.”
“Karina has house sat for me/my pets three times now and each time has been great. She is very respectful of my home and the animals seem to love her. She sends pics daily along with little updates and doesn’t get annoyed by even the neediest creatures (my cat and dog want attention 24/7). I will continue to use her for my pet sitting services in the future!”
“Akala was great! She took care of my two cats while I was out of town this weekend, and I returned to my apartment (and cats!) in perfect condition. I received regular updates and cute pictures, which did a lot to ease my mind as I'm rarely apart from them. I would definitely welcome Akala back to house sit again.”
“Hannah is AMAZING! My pets were so well cared for, the house was spotless, she took care of trash collection AND she trained my Chihuahua to go up and down the two steps to the back door! She’s truly wonderful!”
“Steph was great Jasper and Olivia loved her. Loved the updates and enjoyed my few days away. Small crisis when I thought I had booked for two nights but hadn't. Steph was able to accommodate me took great care of Jasper and Olivia. Looking forward to further adventures. :) :)”
“I booked with Erin last minute as my usual sitters weren’t available. I was a little nervous not meeting in person but everything went great! Good communication and updates/pictures. Tootie got lots of walks and playtime and was happy and relaxed when I got home :)”
“Erica took great care of Charlie while we were on a family vacation out of state! The photos she sent truly showed just how comfortable he was with her!”
“Khelsi was a little hard to schedule a meet and greet with at first as we are both busy people. when she met my dog before i left, all seemed like it would go well for her to stop by and feed/take her out. well. my lil lady Mabel is TOUGH. at first she was growling as Khelsi approached, but allowed her to get close enough to feed her. then she began barking before Khelsi was even in the room. we talked on the phone a few times and eventually it became a matter of her safety to simply show up to make sure nothing was horribly wrong and then leave. Khelsi kept showing up even though Mabel was being so nasty. even my best friend was getting barked at! when I got home Mabel was completely docile with me and immediately went outside and ate. apparently just so scared while i was gone thanks for sticking it out Khelsi”
“Awesome , communication and understanding were top tier ! Thank you much !”
“Julia was great with my pup! She sent photo updates throughout her stay. My house was exactly as I left it and I came home to a very happy girl. I’ve already rebooked Julia for a future stay. Thank you, Julia!”
“Kimberly was great! Super helpful for a thanksgiving house sit. Very good with communication!”
About: I have a background in rescue work, husbandry, vet science and dog care. I’m a former doggy daycare worker and am a longtime volunteer/former board member for an animal rescue! I work all day Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturday’s and Sundays. I work after 11:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I work after 12:30 on Fridays. Given notice, I can be more flexible. I focus on building a trusting, loving relationship with all my client’s pets. Using the provided schedule and itinerary by an owner, I help dogs gain confidence with me and work on socialization skills, while still keeping them comfortable in their routine.
“Sent loads of pictures. Took great care of my baby. Kept house very clean ?”
“Joshua is my go-to, top-choice dog sitter. My dog, Winnie, is a rescue and has some special needs. Until I found Joshua, I was hesitant to travel. He took the time to learn and understand the best ways to care for Winnie, and when he's with her, I do not have to worry. He's incredibly professional, a great communicator, and clearly had a deep love and understanding of dogs. Throughout Winnie's time with Joshua, he sent me frequent updates and photos. Plus, he's a photographer, so I was blown away by the amazing photos he took of her - they truly captured her personality and spirit! I could tell that Winnie was having a wonderful time and was being treated with the utmost care and attention. This helped me relax and enjoy a much-needed vacation. Overall, I cannot recommend Joshua highly enough as a dog sitter. His calm demeanor makes him an exceptional caregiver. If you're looking for someone who will treat your dog like a member of the family, Joshua is the person for you!”
“JJ is very sweet and cares a lot about animals and works with them very well. She looked after my two golden retrievers and was an absolute delight and followed by instructions to a T.”
