Jasmine took excellent care of Zoey while we were out of town for nearly a week. Despite Zoey's nervousness and the challenges it posed initially, Jasmine exercised a lot of patience and willingness to try different things to allow Zoey to feel more safe. And after the first night, Zoey warmed up significantly! Jasmine kept us updated throughout the trip, whether it was the challenges on the first day or the big successes in the days that followed! We really appreciated Jasmine's skills, knowledge, and commitment to taking care of Zoey.

Lupe was the absolute best sitter we could have asked for! This was the first time we needed to use a sitter and we were anxious about how it would go, she will be our first and hopefully only option moving forward. We received great pictures and updates while we were gone, our pup enjoyed it, and she left our home way better than she found it. Lupe went above and beyond for our dog and it was clear. We couldn’t have been more impressed and grateful. Thank you so much, Lupe!

Shakira is the absolute best and just a amazing lady! This was my first time hes I g him with a stranger. Both she and Benzo fell in love with each other and he was looking sad when she left. She took good care of my boy and kept me updated on his activities during the day. Couldn’t ask for a better experience or sitter for my puppy. Do not hesitate ti book her if she’s available; you won’t regret it I promise. She is a dog whisperer!!?

About: I have done volunteer work from Anti-Cruelty. I had to feed and walk the dogs. It was a great experience! I communicate well with pets. It fits very well. I plan to start part-time then go into full-time or whatever schedule is available first. Full or Part-time, based on availability. I make sure they are fed, walked, have exercise and activities, based on the breed and age of the pet. I will build connections also

Belicia was an amazing sitter who communicated with us often. She immediately put us at ease by sending us pictures, videos, details regarding every walk, etc. When we returned to our apartment it was in the exact same condition we left it, and our two dogs, Juniper and Basil, were calm, healthy, and happy. I will definitely keep Belicia in mind for future dog sitting/walking needs.

About: I’ve had a few pets of my own and I am very detail oriented, if your pets ever need me to go an extra mile I will! I am currently a college students at the University of Chicago. I have free time after classes, on weekends and some holidays. I would love to work as a pet sitter or walker! I won’t be home sitting because I live in a dorm right now, but I can home sit at your homes! I care very much for animals and will give them my undivided attention.

Shiri was awesome to accept a relatively last minute booking at a good rate, and was communicative and professional throughout her stay. I returned to my home exactly how I had left it for her which I appreciated as well. She was understanding and kind when problems arose which meant a lot for me given my dog is of old age and caring for him can be quite involved. Thanks Shiri!

Emma stayed at our ranch for a week while we were out of town. She was perfect. We returned to a happy cat and a clean house. She kept in communication with us. She learned how to operate all the systems that could cause problems during her sit, and that made us feel very secure about leaving her with an entire ranch to care for.

About: Hey there! I have several years experience caring for and training dogs as a dog walker and pet sitter. I love all animals, but I must confess that pigeons are my favorite. I come from a family with a deep love for dogs, I grew up with a a calm temperament sweetheart Cocker Spaniel Springer named Happy, and currently have a frisky 10 year old Dachshund Fox Terrier mix named Oliver that I personally raised and potty trained since puppyhood. Different temperaments are no issue for me, from playful to stubborn to entirely relaxed - I have had experience with all kinds of personalities. I live next to Washington Park, the University of Chicago, and not too far from Promontory Point which features great walking paths along Lake Michigan. I’m an avid biker and love to be outside. I can accomodate most levels of exercise and bathroom breaks. Currently, I’m researching and learning more about dog body language to ensure the comfort and safety of dogs in my care—I’d love to talk to you about it! Your dog will not only be in great hands, but I’ll try my best to provide your pet a comfortable time and a ton of fun, too. I’m a graduate student at the University of Chicago, which allows me to have very flexible hours. I’m typically an early riser and like to take walks or bike rides in the morning. I make my own schedule and work from home most days. I know that life can be unpredictable, so I try my best to accommodate most schedules or last minute changes. I live on the 2nd floor of a 2 story building in a 3 bedroom apartment, which features a large and cozy living room. Usually, I set up dog beds and cozy pillows next to my bay windows so they can relax and enjoy watching a starling or cardinal outside. I keep my bedroom and bathroom doors closed, with the exception of my guest room that I will set up as a “calm room,” especially when I’m caring for multiple dogs. I like to provide a space for dogs to relax or sleep because each dog may have different needs. I keep the blinds closed and stimulation low in that room. This helps me to manage dogs with different temperaments, ages, and energy levels. Dogs are free to roam down the hall and into the kitchen. In a client’s home, I know that this is a new environment, so I do my best to follow instructions as they’re written and honor the clients requests.

Tamyra is one of the best care givers I know. I trust her with my dog. As she takes them out there to five times a day. She also provided multiple pictures throughout the day of my baby's updates. Tamyra is very loving and caring when it comes to my pets. I would recommend tamyra to watch my animals as we have formed a bond and my animals have formed bonds with her.

Thank you thank you for the last minute request. Also thank you for putting up with my paranoia with having you stay at my place with Badu. It definitely was the best decor for him! He is so relaxed and happy so I know the time y’all had together was just perfect. Badu will definitely see you again soon?
