About: Hello, Let me walk and train your companion! With 10 years of hearding dog training experience and an active lifestyle I’m happy to take your furry friend! Fun and safety is my first priority for dogs. Not only will your pal get exercise with me but he will be getting trained while doing so. Extremely active person, currently enrolled in a geology masters program with a flexible schedule. Allowing me to make time for a furry friend or companion. Safety is my first priority.

In the last four years I have studied under two vet technicians. I currently work 16 hours a week, so I have loads of time to spend with your fur babies.

I can crate dogs as needed, as well.

About: I have grown up with dogs my entire life. Back at home I have volunteered at a spay and neuter clinic helping the dogs and cats in post surgery recovery. I also have been a caretaker on another dog platform called "Wag". This job includes dog walking, drop-ins, dog sitting and hosting. I have loved the experience with being a temporary dog caretaker and frequently fostering dogs from the athens county dog shelter. Last March I had the privilege to travel to Costa Rica and volunteer and dog shelters there providing care for their animals and facility. Overall, I'll appreciate any chance to be able to help an animal. Currently I am fully available for any day/time needed. i will be free the remainder of this summer up until i go back to school for fall semester at the end of August. I live in a house with 4 other roomates. Usually, theres only two or three of us at home at the same time. They also all love dogs too! We have a small unfenced yard in front of the house. The street we live on is far from campus so it is calm and quiet around our house. We have a lot of space on the first floor with space that is open and has hardwood floors.

“I'm delighted to share my experience with Kayla as an animal caregiver. From the moment I entrusted my beloved kitty Milo to her, I knew I had made the right choice. Kayla is an exceptional animal caregiver who goes above and beyond to ensure the well-being and happiness of her clients. Her deep love and passion for animals are evident in every interaction. What sets Kayla apart is her dedication to providing a safe and nurturing environment, whether it's daily walks, playtime, or simply cuddling on the couch. My cat meows with excitement every time he sees Kayla, a testament to the strong bond and trust they've built. Furthermore, Kaya is highly responsible and reliable. She consistently ensures that my Milo is well-fed, and stays active and engaged throughout the day. I have complete peace of mind knowing my cat is in her capable hands. Kayla also maintains excellent communication. She provides regular updates, photos, and videos, so I never feel far from my kitty, even when I'm away. It's a level of transparency and dedication that truly sets her apart. In summary, I couldn't be happier with the care and attention Kayla provides. She is a animal lover, and the professionalism and commitment to the well-being of pets is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend Kayla to anyone seeking top-tier care for their furry family members.”
About: I’ve owned all kinds of pets since I was a kid! I’ve had fish, hamsters, rabbits, cats, and dogs. I’ve also had family rely on me to check in with their pets while they’re away. Since winter break is starting and classes are not going to be in session, I will have extra free time on my hands to care for your pet(s)! I am a huge animal lover! I will go out of my way to make sure they are treated right. The only bad thing I could do to an animal is annoy them with how much attention I give them!
“Kate is absolutely amazing with animals. She has shown unconditional love for our three golden retrievers. Many times she can be found on the floor in the middle of a puppy pile as they try to lick and cuddle her to death. She truly has a passion for all animals and goes above and beyond at making sure they are more than just taken care of. She makes them feel loved and pampered and ensures all of their wants and needs are met. I couldn’t recommend her enough.”

About: I've taken care of cats for extended periods and helped dogsit many times with my roommate back in Denver. We would split dogsitting duties and it was so much fun. I'm a grad student, so I'm in and out of my apartment every day. I'm flexible with my schedule and can always build in time to take care of animals. Every night, I'm home and ready to pet-sit. We have cozy furniture and an unfenced place out back to run around, plenty of space to crate, and close to the bike path for walks.
