Jacob did a good job with our boys and they definitely didn't make it easy on him. I was impressed with his patience in dealing with our excitable puppies. I will definitely book him again. ?

Schuyler was an absolute life-saver. The first day of our vacation my mother fell and broke her hip and I was extremely stressed and spent my entire vacation in a hospital in Charleston, SC. Schuyler continued to check on me daily and sent pictures and updates about Crosby and Murphy. She managed my house, checked my mail, and made sure everything was running smoothly at home so I could focus on my mother and her care. When I got home, the house was perfect and the pups were healthy and happy. I cannot recommend Schuyler enough. She was absolutely awesome!!! Jean Scott

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.

Wendy was great. She snatched up an impossible to cover NYE dog sit in our home last minute. She was great at communicating and we came home and our pup seemed tired from being exercised and cared for.

Where do I begin, Gillian is an AMAZING person and sitter. Before leaving our beloved Moose in her care she walked him a couple of times and every time he returned with the biggest smile on his face. We had originally scheduled Gillian for two weeks but when we were faced with a family emergency and had to return she came to the rescue. Helping us update the booking and most importantly checking on Moose two additional times after we had technically stopped being booked. She is a savior and an angel and saved us so much stress and worry.

Anna has been caring for any and every animal around that needed care in our neighborhood since she was a little girl! She’s extremely reliable and is very intuitive about what an animal is feeling and cares for it accordingly. I’ve known her to sit outside in the rain with dogs who were scared of thunder to be a soothing companion for them. Her own pets are always well cared for and look happy and busy. Anna shows up on time and does exactly what she’s been asked to do. Her love for animals goes beyond dogs and cats: she’s cared for ducks, chickens, goats, nestling birds who fell from the tree and the occasional rabbit. Anna is trustworthy and she likes to do a really great job at any endeavor she’s asked to accomplish. I wholeheartedly recommend her for this job.

Cassidy was great watching my two golden doodles! She braved the rain to get them some exercise, and they were happy and relaxed when I got home. I’d happily ask her to watch them again!

I met Micaiah in early 2022 at a local arts festival. We instantly connected over our shared love of clothing design, leeks, and our dogs. After scheduling a play date for them, I knew Micaiah would be the perfect fit to help care for my golden doodle as I shifted into a new position at my job. Everything went smoothly and Micaiah and Sputnik got along beautifully. Micaiah is a very sweet person who has a good intuition for working with animals. However, I will never forget the last time Micaiah walked my dog. It was a beautiful day and I could never have expected there to be dog nappers on the prowl. Micaiah’s quick thinking and killer instincts brought my baby back to me and I’ve never used another pet care service since. When you hire Micaiah you can be sure of dependability, responsibility, durability, and versatility.

Kristin has been a reliable caregiver for my puppy Oreo over the last couple years. Kristin is kind and very caring towards animals. My pup always returns happy and sleepy (from the walks/runs). I couldn’t ask for a better person to turn to.

Savanah did a great job taking care of our three dogs and treated them with kindness and patience. I was not worried at all while they were under her care and I would have her watch them again! She also left the house very clean and made sure to wipe their paws as needed.

Jaimason was the best dog sitter we could have asked for!! We have a senior dog with some mobility issues and a fear of storms and she handled both of his issues as well as we would have. Her communication with us was excellent with a quick response time. I couldn’t have asked for a better sitter for Bogey🥰. We will definitely use her in the future and I would highly recommend her to anyone else!!

Christina has been absolutely amazing for our family, especially for our 14-year-old border collie-mix, Winnie. Each time she's taken care of Winnie, she has shown incredible patience, love, and understanding towards her special needs and old, but active age. Her attentiveness to Winnie's diet, exercise, and any medication schedule has given us peace of mind while we're away. It's clear Christina not only loves animals but also understands how to care for them responsibly. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable pet caregiver. - Alex T.
