Natalia was everything I could have hoped for and more! I would say her top 3 qualities are Responsible, Thoughtful and Playful :-). She took such good care of my 4 1/2 month-old puppy, who I would never have left with a sitter so early other than for the unexpected circumstances that required it. In the event, she left me feeling completely confident in her care for Finley. She updated us daily, with photos, took him out for walks and backyard play sessions, and even helped train him to be less agitated when in the crate!!! We would hire her again, absolutely, she is our #1 pick!!

We so appreciate Vicki's care for our dogs when we had to rush out of town last minute. She came ahead of time and met them and took time connecting with us, which we really appreciated, since it was so last minute. She gave them lots of movie, walk and snuggle times, making them licki mats and setting up snuffle games for them, while we were away. She even took them on a good walk right before we got back so we didn't feel pressure to rush them out when we got home and were able to unpack and catch our breath. We came home to a clean house, welcome home card, and relaxed dogs.

Kaila was an absolute gem! She communicated often & sent great pictures reassuring me that Max was living the dream and Piper was relaxed and being social. My apartment was left super tidy and my " kids" were obviously well taken care of. I won't hesitate to hire Kaila again!

We couldn't have been more pleased with Darian’s dog-sitting service. Darian has exceptional communication skills. From the initial contact, she was prompt, friendly, and made the entire process hassle-free. Throughout our trip, Darian made it a priority to send me frequent updates and photos of my dog. Each message brought us ease, knowing that our dog Elena was being well cared for and was happy. Darian's love for animals was evident in her interactions with my dog. She treated her with the utmost care, making sure she received ample exercise, playtime, and affection. It was clear that she genuinely enjoyed spending time with animals and had a natural ability to create a bond with them. Professionalism and reliability were also at the forefront of Darian's services. She arrived punctually for each appointment, maintained a clean and organized environment, and respected my home. I felt completely at ease leaving our dog, Elena in her care. We highly recommend Darian as a dog sitter. Her communication, frequent updates, and genuine love for animals make her the ideal choice. I will definitely be reaching out to her again in the future.

Mikayla did a great job looking after my cat. He is having some health issues that are unresolved so I was very nervous to leave him. But she looked after him and gave me updates on how he was doing - and rolled with me being a nervous cat-mama. I already have booked her for a few more trips!

Lynn has great communication skills, she’s professional, reliable, and quickly became our cat’s new Best Friend. She spent time hanging out with our cat just like we would. The attention Uslada received greatly helped mitigate her separation anxiety and Lynn truly soiled her rotten. It was great getting daily photos throughout our trip so we could see how well our cat was adjusting and such a relief to come home to a happy/healthy kitty!

Kathleen was a true professional from the start. She was communicative and prompt. She took excellent care of our home and our dog. She even went the extra mile and took care of our gardens and chickens. She left the house tidy and it was clear she'd been very respectful of our home during our 2 week trip.

Caitlyn is an absolute miracle worker with dogs of all sizes, temperaments, and breeds! I’ve known her for 12 years and I’ve never seen her love anything more. She is my go to girl, my consulter, and my favourite pet sitter. She has helped me train my dogs and care for them in more ways than one! She is truly exceptional and your dog would feel like he’s in doggy heaven in the care of Caitlyn! If you want to feel rest assured, stress free, and spoil your pup, she’s your girl!

About: *About our place We are in the Cordata neighborhood. Rover map is incorrect! Our property is like a huge dog park! We have 3 treed and open fully fenced acres with a doggie door, covered deck, agility course, a pond for those that like to swim, plenty of toys, dog beds, room to dig and play and friendly dogs to play with. We have dogs, cats, and ducks (which are always penned up safely). We cannot take aggressive dogs or cat aggressive dogs. If your dog is reactive to other dogs we are unable to accommodate them. * About me I owned a grooming shop for 17 years and worked at a vet clinic for 15 years. I have also worked with multiple dog rescues over the years. I have experience with special needs dogs and those that require extra TLC. I only use positive reward based training. * Boarding For this option, your pup(s) will be staying in my home. I have dogs myself , so I ask for advanced notice of at least 72 hours before drop off because dogs coming last minute can be disruptive to our home life. Due to an unfortunate circumstance and privacy concerns with a potential client I no longer allow people inside my home for meet and greets. We can do meet and greets in our fenced back yard if you so choose. Meet and greets are not required. We often offer a trial day in lieu of a meet and greet as dogs act different when their owners leave and we want to see the true dog. I can only take a max of 2 dogs at once. If from different families I must know they dogs before they are allowed to interact with another family’s dog and be similar in age, temperament. All male dogs over a year must be neutered. No female dogs in heat. Dogs should be crate trained in the event of an emergency. If you have a puppy we can work on gentle crate training by feeding the pup in a crate and letting them out immediately after. The crate is always associated with something positive. We are not a kennel, this is our home and everyone’s safety is top priority. Your dog will be able to roam the house, sleep on the couch, use a doggie door to go in and out as they please and lots of playtime. We cannot hold spots available for you unless you reserve the spot. I adjust to your dog’s schedule. I do not expect them to adjust to mine. *Other Pets For this service we can also pet sit for more then just dogs. Caged animals such as birds, reptiles and small animals have their own private room. We have experience with snakes, bearded dragons, a variety of geckos, sugar gliders, rats, guinea pigs, bunnies, axolotls, and birds. Caged animals are NEVER allowed to intersect with other species or other animals they did not come with. We can feed, interact with and clean cages as necessary. The price is the same as our dog boarding fees due to the extra attention exotics need. **all pick ups must be no later than 6pm. If you are ruining late the dog or small animal can stay another day and you can pick up in the morning. *Housesitting- I do weekends only* For this option, I will provide drop ins during the day and stay overnight in your home. A meet and greet is required for this so we can go over food, dog’s or cats access in your home, potty break times, meds needing to be given etc. I can walk your dog during drop in times or play with your kitty. I am dog and human CPR/First Aid certified. I can do any type of medications your pet needs as well as feed any diet your dog or cat needs. *Doggie Daycare- Pick ups must be no later than 6pm. Your dog will have access to our huge backyard, they can swim in our pond or play in the baby pool. We have a small agility course and we do lure coursing. Plenty of my own dogs to run and play chase with. Due to our schedules we have the flexibility to give pets the time and energy they require. We don't use any harsh chemicals or pesticides on our property. We use beneficial nematodes in our yard to prevent fleas and other pests. My husband and I work opposite shifts so someone is always home. We have a doggie door so even the youngest pups can get outside to use the potty when they need. Our deck is separately fenced from our yard so they are always supervised. I treat all pets like family. I worked as a dog groomer and a vet tech for many years so I have a lot of experience. We can tailor the experience to fit your pup’s needs if necessary. While I do work, my husband and I work opposite shifts and my teenager does online school so someone is always home. We tailor our schedule to fit your dog’s needs. Dogs are welcome on our couch and we also have various dog beds for their comfort. My dogs are part of our family and your dogs will be cared for the same way.

Autumn is a very loving and caring person, her love for animal's shines through each and every time she comes to walk my fur babies. she is very patient and loving when working with my dog Gracie who is very high energy. Autumn has worked wonders in training her. Autumn has also been working and walking my senior fur baby Rocky and is very patient and loving with him. he is blind in one eye and almost blind in the other eye and his hearing is almost gone, both Gracie and Rocky look forward and get excited when they see Autumn. Autumn is very reliable, and I would highly recommend her. Autumn would prove to be a valuable asset to your company,
