Pet Sitting & Drop Ins in Ashton Heights, Arlington, VA
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
“Absolutely excellent. We went on a long trip to Asia and the biggest thing for me was that I could actually enjoy my trip because I knew they were in great hands. She walked our dog daily in addition to playing with her outside in the backyard and really helped get her energy out and quality time. She was patient and kind with our cats and did an excellent job in finding ways to get them to take their medicine (3 of the 4 cats take medication). She cleaned our house throughout the stay but did a final clean on the day we got back and that was such a huge plus for us. It was nice coming home to happy animals and a clean house in order. So happy we found Tara and can’t wait to have her pet sit again.”
“Louise was great with my cat Maya. Maya has a particular need to get her eyes cleaned up and Louise took very good care of her! I hope to have Louise take care of Maya whenever I am out of the town! Thanks Louise”
“Arial takes care of my sweet Perla when I travel. She takes such a good care and gives her love and keep us update of how she is doing. Perla is always excited to see her!”
“This was Melissa's second time watching my two cats and she continued to do an excellent job! I was impressed by how quickly my extremely shy cat warmed up to her (he hides from almost everyone, no matter how often they're here). She went above and beyond by giving my two cats a cactus toy that they love! Will continue to book with Melissa in the future”
Isabelle & Diego H.
“Isabelle & Diego were fantastic cat sitters! Excellent use of the Rover app to communicate the status of the cats as well as updates. They also went above and beyond by really spending time playing with the cats and even brushing them thoroughly (and throwing out the hair!). When we came back the cats were happy and well fed and jumped right back into their previous routine - I would definitely recommend Isabelle & Diego to anyone looking for great cat sitters!”
“Amber did so great! We have an older cat who needed medicine twice a day. Amber was able to administer that medicine successfully each day, despite the feisty nature of our cat. We would absolutely book Amber again!”
“Drew is an amazing pet sitter. He was able to take care of my anxious dog well and communicated effectively throughout the whole stay. I would absolutely recommend Drew!”
“Simone is an excellent sitter. She has watched our pets Lucky and Scout many times. Simone always sends many photos and videos throughout the day and is super responsive. Will continue to ask her to watch our dogs!”
“Carrie was amazing! Élio really loved her and I felt so much more comfortable leaving him home knowing he was in her care. Her notes for each day were so detailed as well.”
“Will def come back to Catarina :)”
Mei Ling W.
“Mei Ling is an excellent caregiver of pets! As a pet owner herself, she is disciplined with daily, weekly, and annual routines pets need. Her two pets also very calm, reflecting the peaceful and comfortable environment she provides for them. Thirdly, Mei Ling has a passion for all furry friends, which exudes an inviting presence many pets can tell is a safe human. I’m confident she would extend this care to any other pet owners in need of caregiving assistance!”
“Mary was super friendly and communicative with her visits at our home! We felt less stressed being away from our little puppy. Thank you Mary!”
“Urmi was awesome with Mack! Very playful and friendly :) would recommend!”
“Aidan did a wonderful job taking care of our dog Rubie ! Was very thorough and wrote a nice report card after letting her out. He was respectful of our home and took proper precautions for the future (locking house doors, shutting gate etc). Would gladly utilize his dog walking services in the future.”
“Erica was amazing! She took great care of my older rabbit, and was flexible when we had to reschedule drop-in visits due to cancelled flights. She sent photos of my bunny every visit, and he was a very happy bun when we got home!”
“Sarah was absolutely amazing! My cat does not like most people beyond me, but she was fully comfortable with Sarah after the first visit! I felt so comfortable having Sarah look after my cat while I was away and will book with her again!”
“Jennifer was really great at communicating with me while she was checking in on my baby. She took great care of Panchito and sent me updates while I was away. It was super easy to schedule and coordinate with her as well!”
“Anne is a wonderful, experienced pet sitter! She has watched my 2 somewhat needy cats on a dozen or so occasions without any issues. She is very reliable and a timely communicator. I don't typically write reviews, but I am really grateful for Anne's help! Her prices are good, and she also walks and sits dogs!”
About: I used to have a black lab retriever, that I had for over ten years, she's a relatively big dog, so I'm familiar with caring for and watching larger animals. For the past four years I have been paid to watch and care for other pets other than my own, so I am familiar with watching other people's pets. My black lab was untrained for years, so if your pet happens to not be trained then that is okay because I am completely comfortable with an untrained animal. Since I do have a dog, I would not be able to host cats, but I do not mind watching them at your home. A little bit more about myself, I graduated from Penn State in 2018, with a degree in Political Science, and a minor in History, I also have a masters in Legal Studies from American University. I'm originally from upstate NY and moved to the DMV a little over a year ago. I work remote most days and am able to give my dog the love and attention she deserves. I make sure to take her out so gets enough daily exercise. I’m very on top of watching my dog and keeping a safe environment for all animals. I keep all things that could potentially be harmful out of their reach.
“Jennifer is so great with my dog! She is a COVID puppy, so has been used to having someone home alone with her all day. As I have to go back into the office more and more, it has caused me stress to leave my dog at home all day when that is not something she is used to. I love that I have someone I can trust to check in on her - it eases my stress so much! Jennifer is so communicative and understands what is best for Riley when checking in her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dogsitter and will definitely be booking again! :)”
