Pet Sitting & Drop Ins in Bellemeade, Richmond, VA
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
“Our pets, Buddy, a Golden Retriever and Velcro, a Russian Blue who are both just over 10 years old were cared for in our home by Austin-Elizabeth while we were on vacation. One of the outstanding attributes of Ms. Austin-Elizabeth is her ability to communicate clearly and in detail what, when, and how she would care for the pets. She also sent me emails and pictures of them on her visits. Buddy has just been through 18 months of chemo for lymphoma and is still recovering. Her care regarding both pets was super. I would highly recommend Ms Austin-Elizabeth for in home pet care.”
“First time using Rover, so we were quite nervous. But we really lucked out! We love Kayley!!! She is indeed a fairy dogmother! We will definitely love to have her come again. Sailor fell in love, and she was definitely in good hands with Kayley. ❤️”
“This was my first time using Rover, and Blythe exceeded all expectations! I was already out of town when my friend got sick and couldn't drop-in on Lizard, so I was scrambling to find someone to come by twice a day for 3 days in a row. Blythe responded to the request quickly, took excellent care of Lizard, and sent photos from every visit. I will definitely be using Blythe again anytime I need someone to drop-in when I'm out of town!”
“Gabriella was wonderful with my cat! She promptly responded to my booking request and sent sweet updates during check-in visits. Will definitely be booking again in the future!”
“Elle has done several drop ins for our nine month old puppy and has been very professional, punctual, and considerate! We will continue to work with her and would gladly recommend her.”
“My family highly recommends Julia for all of your pet-sitting needs! We have used Julia numerous times to watch our 3 cats while on vacation and Julia does an amazing job. Cats were fed, litter boxes cleaned and time spent socializing is exactly what we, and the cats needed! Julia is the best, so allow her to exceed your pet-sitting expectations!”
“Olivia was amazing with my furbaby. Gave him lots of love while I was traveling for work. I already have her booked again. Thank you so much for taking care of my baby! 😊”
“Kira has taken care of my dog numerous times. She always showed great care of my dog during their walks, ensuring they got plenty of exercise and attention. Kira is punctual, reliable, and showed genuine affection towards my dog. I felt at ease knowing my pet was in capable hands. Kira is always welcome to watch to my dog anytime!”
“Ileandra is an amazing young lady. She loves all animals and understands that each animal has its own needs, whether it be cuddling, playing or just enjoying a walk. Currently she is taking care of her own dog that has Addison’s Disease and she loves her so much. Her dog is her ride or die. She has knowledge of taking care of puppies as well as older dogs, kittens, cats, and rabbits. Ileandra likes a challenge and to learn more. Your pet is in good loving hands with her as she will treat them as her own.”
“Lydia has many years of experience with dogs, as she grew up with 2, and will take great care of them. I couldn't recommend someone more than her”
About: My mom works in veterinary medicine so we always had so many different animals around. Cats, dogs, birds, Snakes, guinea pigs; a little of everything. I ended up also working in vet med and have been working directly with animals for 6 years now. The last 2 years I have worked in a fear free clinic and have a special love for giant breed dogs! Evenings and weekends are the best times for me for drop ins and walks; but I have flexible availability throughout the day to meet your needs. I have a two story town house, so even though I have cats in the home, they will be upstairs and a baby gate will be on the stairs. I have a small shaded yard and a bigger open field behind us. We are close to a road, so pets will not be allowed outside without a leash as well as a slip lead if you are okay with that. I will also ask for any dogs being taken on a walk to have a leash and a slip lead as well. I will provide the lead.
“Wow! Katelyn was amazing. We had a last minute change of plans and had to find a sitter FAST! Katelyn responded right away that she was available and asked all the right questions. She did her drop in visits on time and sent pics of our dogs each visit. Our pups LOVED her. She is a pleasure to work with and a true lifesaver for us. Highly recommend Katelyn.”
“Julia was a big help watching our dog Shadow while we were away! She provided very detailed updates and amazing pictures! She was even able to stop by extra times when we had unforeseen travel emergencies. I would highly recommend Julia :)”
“Erian watched our two yorkies while we were on vacation. She arrived on time for every walk, sent videos and pictures, and let us know how the pups were doing. She also made sure to refresh their food and water and played with them. Erian is extremely trustworthy, responsible, and kind. We will recommend her to all our friends and family, and already plan on hiring her for our next vacation! Excellent job, Erian!”
“Ally kept Beau over a 2-3 yr time period. Beau loved Ally. Ally was very dependable, friendly and Had excellent skills. We left Ally when we went away for the week and she stayed and cared for our home also. Mary D 8/1/22”
“Rachel was really awesome with Gracie. I was confident and at ease while away in Wilmington NC because she was dropping in on Gracie. It is such a relief to not worry or have anxiety when you have to leave your pet behind. Rachel was wonderful. I will definitely book with her again!”
“Amanda is the greatest person to watch your furbabies! She is so caring and reliable! I feel very comfortable with Amanda watching my cat peaches from time to time, I’m so thankful to have someone so compassionate! Amanda is also a wonderful doggy mom herself, her doggies are one of the greatest part of visiting. I really recommend booking with Amanda today!”
About: I've taken care of animals for as long as I can remember. Throughout my childhood, my family had several cats and 3 dogs. I have experience with animals of all ages, from kitten/puppy to senior pets. I currently have 2 cats of my own, but I'm more than capable of caring for dogs as well (of all sizes/breeds). Most of my friends have dogs and I always look forward to seeing them and playing with them when I get the chance. I would love a dog of my own, but being a renter and moving around a lot I can't take on an additional pet at the moment. Even though I'm a cat household, all animals are welcome and will be treated like one of the family. I work full time from home so I'm always around to look after your fur babies. I can take frequent breaks during the work day to check in on them whether it be to feed them, play for a bit, or take care of bathroom breaks. During non-working hours, they will have my full attention. When your pet is in my care, my goal is to love them and care for them like they're one of my own. I want to adapt to your pet's needs whether that means a lot of play time, walks, or just some quality couch time. If your pet has any special needs or takes medication, I can accommodate and take care of them as needed. I'll provide as much interaction as possible and keep them safe and cared for (whether that's in your home or mine). I have a small, fenced in yard big enough for dogs to run around or play a game of fetch.
About: I breed and show my own dogs, and I sell pawTree products! I want to expand my love for animals and help others with theirs. I mostly work from home caring for my own dogs and children. Otherwise I’m out driving and taking care of errands and other related things. I utilize crates, leash walking, socialization, and training. My children are also amazing little helpers, and this teaches them many important life lessons, and creates bonds.
