“Valerie did a great job taking care of my pups while I was out of town. She always kept me updated, was very accommodating and understanding while taking care of my very rambunctious hooligans. I loved the reassurance and cute pictures she always made sure to take!”
“We could not be happier with this service and Sarah! Definitely recommended!”
“I checked out Amanda’s reviews and was impressed by what I saw. So of course I chose to book with her to come by and care for my two cats while away for a few days. She was so kind and gentle with them and e even was able to pet and play with my very shy cat who has a hard time w/ new visitors. She acknowledged each of my requests and was prompt, careful and understanding. I will definitely book with her again for the next time we are away. We trust her and know that our cats are in good care when we are away. Definitely book with Amanda!”
“Great! Very responsive and kind.”
“Sarma was very kind and attentive while I was away. As an exotic shorthair Inti is kind of high maintenance but she was really great at taking amazing care of all his needs and playing with him.”
“Brittany has watched Reggie a couple of times now and she’s always been super communicative and nice! Reggie gets excited to see her, and I’ll definitely be booking again!!”
“We were glad to find Coleen last minute and having our 2 cats well taken care of. She made effort to get familiar with the kitties who can be shy and scared of new people. She was also thoughtful in their comfort level both with her and all around in the apartment when we were away. It was assuring to read the detailed visit summary that Coleen made.”
“I can’t think of anyone more loving and responsible than Elijah. Not only is he a wonderful person, he is a considerate, attentive caretaker who loves animals more than anything and treats them as if they were his own. I feel relaxed and safe when Elijah is caring for my dog and I highly recommend him!”

About: Hi there! My name is Curtis and I can’t wait to meet your dog(s)! I have two lovely, strong pups myself whom have been a part of my life the last 5 years. I also have experience taking care of friend’s pets of different sizes and needs. Having used a pet sitter/walker for my own pets and unfortunately not having the best of experience, I know exactly how to care for pets to provide an exceptional experience for dogs and dog owners. I work remotely full-time however I have a ton of flexibility for me to take care of you pup in the mornings, around noon, or evenings! I’m also available most weekends. I live in a dog friendly condo building with lots of areas nearby for potty breaks and for walks that are safe and have low traffic
“Fran was our go-to sitter for our dog, Marley! She would always keep us posted with what she was up to, we always looked forward to seeing pictures of Marley on all the adventures that she went on with Fran! Fran will always make sure to give the best care that any pet deserves! Would recommend her over and over again!”
About: My family always had a dog since I was born, so I was raised with them being just as close as our human family members! I wanted to be a veterinarian for a long time and have actually delivered and raised 3 litters of puppies! I have my own dog now, from one of the litters, who I’ve raised since the day she was born. I was truly made to love and care for dogs, and I can’t wait to meet yours! Im currently between jobs, so I have tons of free time to fill with puppy playtime! I look forward to walks, playdates, and even the dog park if the pet parent allows! I’m used to entertaining a dog inside and outside the house, so whatever property you have I can get your dog’s energy out and give them extra love while you’re away :)
“Lillian was great with my boys! She provided updates with their stay, and put my mind at ease knowing they were in good hands. Will definitely be using Lillian again!!”
“Serenity is a sweet and loving pet caregiver. She helps take care of our family dog, Luna and Luna adores Serenity for all the healthy treats and attention she gives her. Serenity is diligent in taking care of Luna also, giving her medicated baths and curing her allergies that affect Luna’s skin. Out of everyone in the house, Luna goes to Serenity for getting in some active playtime because Serenity is the only one that can match Luna’s excited energy. Serenity is trustworthy and extremely responsible and she is the best person to care for your pets’ needs!”
About: - I have raised three guide dog puppies (lab/golden retrievers) from ages 8 weeks to 14 months as a volunteer puppy raiser with Leader Dogs for the Blind - As part of my puppy raising experience, I have extensive training in positive reinforcement training, both for basic obedience skills and for behavior correction - Between raising puppies over the past five years, I have fostered multiple dogs and 5+ litters of kittens through PAWS. - I grew up with cats and have experience administering pills and liquid medication to kittens and adult cats, as well as insulin to adult cats. I was recently laid off from my tech company job, so I currently have all day most days to spend with your furry friends, in between at-home job hunting. For all animals and services: ————————————- I have a car, so can easily transport a pet to/from a vet in the event of injury or illness. My car has a wire crate in it to ensure safe travel. I keep a first aid kit in my home and car as well. I also store any plants that are toxic to pets safely out of their reach. Dogs: ——- For boarding in my home, I have a small but totally enclosed fenced-in front yard. My landlord lives in the same building and is currently fostering a senior dog, but there is a separate gate to her yard, in case your dog doesn’t get along with others. I have many supplies from my time raising and training puppies, including a 36in dog crate that I can use if your dog is crate-trained. I also have a number of Nylabone and Benebone toys, as well as several puzzle feeder toys and slow feeders. I will not take dogs to dog parks while under my care because of the elevated risk of injury from unfamiliar dogs. I’m happy to set up a play date with dogs your pup is already friendly with! I can administer pills, oral liquid, and/or topical medications to dogs. Cats: ——- For boarding in my home (which I’d only recommend for kittens, or adult cats you know are comfortable being away from home/have been in the past), I have a litter box and clumping cat litter (if you have a specific brand preference, you can provide). I can administer pills, oral liquids, and topical medications, as well as insulin for diabetic cats.
“Lindsay is great with my cat Oliver! This was a long trip for us (10 days) and she was there each day to feed him (2x/day). She even stayed over night 2 days because he is such a cuddler and requires a lot of playtime. She shared pictures and gives us good updates along the way. Just what you need when you are away missing your cat. We come back home and Oliver was as happy as can be because Lindsay too great care of him. Can’t wait for Lindsay’s next visit with Ollie!”
“Kennedy came over before the trip to make sure she met my cat and knew the space, which made a world of difference! When I came home, I could tell my cat was happy and healthy. I will definitely be asking Kennedy to sit again!”
“Merilyn was very professional, responsive, and attentive to our pets. She was very communicative and always sent lots of pictures and videos. Our dogs loved her and she took fantastic care of them. I would not hesitate in booking Merilyn again!”
“This was my first time having Roland as a cat sitter, and I am so impressed. He is attentive and caring. He took care of my cats, sent me text updates and comments on photos. He watered my plants, took out the trash and washed my cat bowls. I am in awe of his work! I definitely recommend him!”
“I contacted Natalie last minute for a drop-in to check on Mac and she immediately accepted my booking. Mac gets lonely as an only sibling and loves attention and Natalie gave him all the love and even sent pics! Now that he has a new friend we’ll for sure be using Natalie for future drop-ins. Thanks again :)”
“Erik is great! Very dependable and communicative. This was the first time I left my babies alone for longer than a week and having Erik check in really helped put me at ease. 10/10!”
