Jennifer did an amazing job taking care of both of our cats! She provided daily updates with photos and even found the cat dental mouthwash in our laundryroom that we had purchased a long time ago, but forgot to put in the water (one of our cats was diagnosed with a serious case of gingivitis right before we left, and I was very stressed out about it). Jennifer played with our shy kitties and gave them lots of attention. She provided daily feedback about the cats' well-being.

My 2 kitties enjoyed having Carrie come over 3x while I was on a trip. This is my 3rd time booking her. She is an excellent communicator and my cats trust her. She sends great reports and adorable pictures. She plays with my one friendly baby!

Aimee is absolutely wonderful. I rarely leave my kitty alone (usually leave with her with a friend) when I’m out of town because she has separation anxiety and is extremely people-oriented. I didn’t have any friends able to take her in during a week I was out of town, so Aimee came to the rescue! You can tell that Aimee has such a kind heart and love for animals. She took perfect care of my cat, giving her tons of play time and snuggle time. She sent so many adorable pictures (my cat looked so happy!) and provided extremely detailed updates that eased my mind and heart while I was away. Don’t hesitate if you’re thinking about booking Aimee - she goes above and beyond!

During my two-week trip, I entrusted Lucy to care for my two cats, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Lucy was incredibly attentive, consistently arriving at my apartment right on time to feed, clean up, and play with my furry companions. She even made sure to turn on the air conditioning as per my request, ensuring a cozy environment for them. Communication was seamless, with Lucy regularly sending me updates and plenty of photos, which kept me reassured and connected to my pets. It was truly a delightful experience, and I'm immensely grateful for her dedication and care!

Tara was so so wonderful with my cats! Both of them have separation anxiety and it was their first time with a sitter. I came home to them playing and doing their normal activities with no anxiety. Tara even got my shyest one to come out of her shell.

I trusted Ingrid to pet-sit after the most important person in my life, my black American Shorthaired, Salem. Ingrid went above and beyond to ensure Salem had everything he needed for the week, making extra visits to ensure he was active and fed appropriately. Ingrid understands how much Salem means to me and looked after him to the highest degree.

I had the pleasure of hiring Rachel, and it was a remarkable experience from start to finish. Her punctuality was truly commendable, always arriving on time with a smile. What stood out the most was the genuine love and care she showed towards my pet. Every interaction was filled with warmth and kindness, creating a trusting and positive atmosphere. Beyond being an excellent caregiver, she was also incredibly friendly and easy to chat with. It felt like more than just a professional service – it was a genuine connection. This made the whole experience not only about the well-being of my dog but also about building a rapport with someone who genuinely loves animals. Upon my dog's return, it was evident that they had a great time. The happiness radiating from my pet spoke volumes about the quality of care provided. I appreciate the attention to detail and the effort put into ensuring both the physical and emotional well-being of my furry friend. In conclusion, I highly recommend Rachel as a dog walker. She goes above and beyond in terms of punctuality, pet care, and creating a positive experience for both the owner and the dog. My heartfelt thanks for the exceptional service!

About: I’ve taken care of dogs since I was a kid! I’ve been around lots of different breeds and mixes, and am comfortable with big dogs! I love dogs and work from home! I live an active lifestyle so being able to play and walk dogs is the perfect way to break up my day. I cannot host dogs, but am comfortable dog sitting for dogs and puppies in their own space. I love to play with dogs and give them the attention they need.
