“I’ve never done a dog walking service before and was a little nervous BUT, Cynthia is WONDERFUL and I know Achilles is well taken care of when I’m at work!”
“Christina was great- she was responsive, reliable, communicated each day, and sent pictures. We were lucky to find her. Thank you Christina!”
“Julia was up for the task of watching my ball of canine terror, and now whenever she walks in, my dog is more than eager to greet her with love! Julia was reliable, responsible, and loving, so says my dog, who is a very good judge of character. I’ll definitely be working with her again.”
“Merlin loves when Candace comes over and he continues to do well with her! Today he finally allowed her to walk him. They didn’t venture too far, to keep him comfortable. I’m hopeful Merlin will continue to improve!”

“Hilary and Willie were GREAT dog sitters! Hazel went on many walks and got quality snuggle time in, making for a perfect weekend for her.

About: Hey there! I've been hanging out with pups since I was 10, and my friends, family, and neighbors have always relied on me to take care of their pets. I am currently working part time very minimally so I will have plenty of availability during the week for walking and or pet sitting and visits! Regular exercise is crucial for a happy and healthy pet, so I make sure they get plenty of playtime and attention throughout the day. Whether it's indoor games, interactive toys, or outdoor adventures, I keep their tails wagging!
“Tori is delightful! She has great communication and took wonderful care of our girl. Will definitely use her on the regular. Came home to a happy pup!”
About: With two years of dedicated pet care experience, including experience taking care of my own cat, I have gained valuable insights into the unique needs and behaviors of our pawsome friends. During this time, I have provided attentive and compassionate care to cats/dogs of various breeds and temperaments. With a deep love and understanding of pets, I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment for your furry companions. You can trust that they will receive the highest level of care and attention under my watch, enabling you to have peace of mind while you are away. As a college student, integrating pet care into my daily routine is a fulfilling and manageable part of my schedule. Here's how I make it work: * Morning and Evening Routines: I end and start my day by spending quality time with my cat. I dedicate a few minutes in the morning for feeding, grooming, and providing fresh water. This sets a positive tone for both my cat and I. In the evening, I engage in interactive play sessions or cuddle time to help my cat relax and unwind. * Scheduled Play and Exercise Breaks: I set aside specific times during the day for play and exercise sessions with my cat. These breaks not only provide mental and physical stimulation for my feline friend but also serve as refreshing breaks for myself. * Utilizing Cat Enrichment: I give my cat interactive toys, scratching posts, or puzzle feeders to keep her mentally engaged while I’m away. These enrichment activities provide stimulation and prevent boredom, especially during longer periods when I can't actively engage with my cat. * Self-Care and Bonding: While juggling college life and cat care, I remember to take breaks for self-care and bonding moments with my furry friend. Taking time for myself and enjoying quality moments with my cat is mutually beneficial by reducing stress and promoting overall well-being. When caring for a pet in a client's home, I prioritize creating a safe, comfortable, and nurturing environment for their beloved companion. Here's how I approach pet care in a client's home: 1. Initial Consultation: Before the pet care begins, I conduct a thorough initial consultation with the client to understand their pet’s specific needs, routines, and any special instructions. This allows me to tailor my care accordingly and ensure a seamless transition for the pet. 2. Daily Care Routine: I adhere to the established routine provided by the client, including feeding/walking schedules, litter box maintenance, and any required medication administration. I make sure to follow dietary guidelines and provide fresh water at all times. 3. Monitoring Health and Behavior: I am attentive to any changes in the pet’s behavior, appetite, or other habits. If there are any signs of discomfort or illness, I promptly notify the client and, if necessary, seek veterinary care as per their instructions. 4. Attention and Affection: I prioritize offering companionship and affection to the pet, providing reassurance and comfort during the client's absence. This may include petting, talking to the pet, or simply spending quality time in their presence. 5. Home Security: Alongside pet care, I ensure the security of the client's home. I follow any specific instructions regarding access, locking doors and windows, and maintaining confidentiality. 6. Communication with the Client: Throughout the pet care period, I maintain open communication with the client. I provide regular updates, including photos and messages, to keep them informed about their pet’s well-being and activities. 7. Respect for the Home: I treat the client's home with the utmost respect, maintaining cleanliness and order. I follow any guidelines or restrictions provided by the client regarding specific areas of the house. By providing dedicated, personalized care for the client's pet in their own home, I strive to create a stress-free experience for both the client and their furry friend. I aim to go above and beyond to ensure the pet feels loved, secure, and well-cared for during their owner's absence.
