“Nick's love and care for animals is unparalleled. He has years of experience dog walking and pet sitting, and has a distinct sense of responsibility for every kind of pet and their individual needs. I have seen his dog Joni go from being scared, skinny dog from a pound to a warm, playful pup while in his care. I absolutely trust him to care for any animal he comes across.”
“Debi was amazing. She jumped into action only minutes after my request for help. I could not have asked for a better walker and caretaker for my pup. Thanks for going above and beyond the call of duty.”
“Terence is always wonderful with Venus. She loves walking with him and he always takes excellent care of her. Happy to continue booking with Terence!”
“Erika was able to fill in last minute for our regular walker and was so great with our shy rescue Tony. She was very flexible, responsive, and reliable for a week of walks that Tony definitely enjoyed. Would recommend!”
“Amy gave Cody a great walk! He came back tired and happy!”
“Kaitlin checked in on our two cats while we were away for three weeks. She played with our very active cat and tired him out enough that he didn't tear up anything around the house. She was also able to entice our other very nervous kitty out to play. The cats were perfectly set with food, water, and litter the whole time she was taking care of them. She even indulged our active kitty on a walk, which we have never trusted a pet sitter to do before. She managed to keep him safe and occupied while he sniffed around the neighborhood and climbed trees. She sent us some very cute pictures of their adventure. Kaitlin has also been working in vet medicine for several years. Our cats luckily did not have any health problems while she was taking care of them, but we felt comfortable leaving them with her if something did come up. We also asked her some vet questions we had been wondering about and she had very helpful answers. Overall, she went above and beyond taking care of our cats.”
“Alexis was great. She was a very good communicator, sent plenty of updates, and took great care of Arlo. Would definitely recommend her services”
“Chrystal is an exceptional pet caregiver! Her dedication, compassion, and attention to detail make her the perfect choice for your furry friends. I trust her completely with my dogs.”
“Devon has watch my pupper Gemma many times. She’s great at listening to whatever instructions we have and Gemma is always happy to see her. I highly recommend her!”
About: I’ve had dogs all my life, with experience in dealing with puppies all the way to senior dogs. I've trained my own dog, Maggie :) as well as my family dogs. I have experience taking care of dogs with behavioral issues and aggression and am well aware of body language cues. I believe only in positive reinforcement and reading when a dog is not giving consent to be pet or approached. I also have experience with administering medication orally. I really love cats as well! I have experience sitting for cats with medications and dietary restrictions as well as having roommates with cats. My hours are flexible so we can work together to make things work best for you and your pets. I’m currently on a hybrid work situation, so I can be available most days of the week. I go in to work Mondays but am available before 8am and after 6pm depending on your location. Just let me know what you need and we can figure it out! I’m good with leash training, I can run or walk dogs. I love to help with different command trainings, and use only positive reinforcement when on walks. For home visits, I can follow any directions needed for the dogs or cats, including required medications. I am careful and attentive about locking doors and following instructions.
About: I’ve had dogs all my adult life, and while growing up. I’ve also lived with cats before. We often struggle to find caring, responsible, affordable care for our pup when we are away on trips, so I know the pain of finding the right fit for a very important job! I currently work part time, so I have 4 days a week that I am available for walks or overnight stays, Thursdays-Sundays. I also work remotely, so could do overnight stays any day of the week. I cannot watch dogs in my home, as our dog does not always get along with others (she was attacked as a pup). But, I am happy to come to yours to watch your pup in their home environment!
“Paula-Yuan G. Is communicative, warm, and proactive. I got several photos of their visit together which gave me a story of my pups mood throughout, very reassuring. Reading about Paula-Yuan’s own experience with reactive pups is an insight to how confidently and gently my reactive pup would be approached. More than satisfied with Paula-Yuan’s service and will seek them out again.”
“I had the pleasure of having Indu take care of my furry family member, and I couldn't be happier with the service provided. Indu is a true animal lover, and it's evident in the way they interact with my dog. She is dependable, trustworthy, and always punctual. My dog adore the walks with Indu, and I have peace of mind knowing that she is in capable hands when I'm away. I highly recommend Indu for anyone looking for a caring and reliable pet sitter or dog walker.”
“Celia is amazing! I have a scaredy rescue dog and recently moved so was anxious to find a walker for my office days. She’s communicative and has nothing but lovey things to say about my pup!”
Aramis Jc A.
“Aramis was extremely professional and kind, he took the time to get to know who my dog was and even made it a point to know his do and don’ts. Aramis, constant communication and updates put my mind at ease and solidified the confidence I had in him. I am not one to write surveys, but I was compelled to by how outstanding Aramis’s services were. I would highly recommend Aramis and I am fairly confident that you will not find anyone as good as him.”
“Brian absolutely loves animals and is an excellent pet caregiver. He grew up with a Shiba in his family and enjoys dog and cat sitting for friends and family here in Berkeley. Brian is warm and caring towards his furry friends and is always excited to care for animals, whether it be dog walking or cat sitting. He regularly walks a Great Pyrenees for a director at Berkeley and loves playing with pets of friends. He is responsible and would make sure your pet has a pleasant experience with him!”
“Cesar has been such a loving caregiver to my dog Prince. My dog is really shy with new people, but Cesar was really patient with him and checked on him often while I was out of state. Prince now recognizes Cesar whenever he walks up! You can count on him to care for your pet!!”
“Tanze was great with our dogs! I really appreciated how communicative she was, and that she was willing to come over for a meet and greet. We’ll definitely be calling her again soon!”
“Olivia was great! My dog came home from her walk happy as can be”
About: I am a new transfer to Cal this year and am really hoping to be the right fit for your furry friend. I am missing my pets back home and definitely need some animal time! I’ve been pet sitting (cats and dogs) for the last 6 years and also was a volunteer at the humane society in my hometown. I am a lifelong vegan and have a huge respect for animals. I will take the time to know you and your pet and also want to make sure that I am able to provide a safe and fun environment for your fur baby. If you have a dog that needs a good run, I’m happy to go out and exercise with him/her. If you have a pet that really just needs a lot of cuddling, that’s great too. And if your pet is a bit of both - wonderful. :) My schedule is pretty flexible, as I’m currently a student. I have some set class times that I can’t miss, but I can be available at different times throughout the day and night, as well as during the weekends. I live in an apartment that is not pet-friendly, so wouldn’t be able to provide care in my own home. But I’m open to pet care in your home, walks, pet check-ins and playtime, etc. I’m happy to answer any questions you have. I know it’s a big decision to leave your pet in someone else’s care, so please reach out if you have any questions about me. Thanks so much!
