“Ava is such a loving and wonderful pet caregiver! She has over 15 years of experience with both owning her own dog and caring for other dogs. She is attentive, thoughtful and trustworthy. A great dog mom!”
“I received multiple pictures from Holly over the duration of our vacation. Knowing your dog is having a good time makes you be able to enjoy yourself more. Holly has a great yard and other dogs, which lets our puppy get out energy! Thank you Holly”
“Kurt was the perfect dog sitter. We felt like we left Luna with a friend! He send pictures and updates throughout her 10 day stay. We will definitely use his service again!”
“Courtney was so great! I was traveling to the area but my dog, Juno, wasn’t able to stay with me overnight. I still wanted to spend time with my pup during the day and Courtney was so flexible in when I could pick up Juno in the mornings and drop her back off in the evenings. Courtney’s dog and cats were super friendly too!”
Claudia Isabella & Mario B.
“I asked Isabella and Mario to take care of my facetious tortoiseshell cat during a long trip a few years ago. I knew they were loving purring companions, they were always talking about their cat they left behind when they came to Canada! I entrusted them by beloved Lauren, and they were very quick in getting her to like them! They respected her schedule and took very good care of her. I would definitively recommend them from excellent experience! They know cat behavior very well, and just love to be around pets in general. They also have a good eye for plants... a nice plus to their competence basket! 😀”
About: I have always had cats and dogs. They were a part of my family but i'm pretty sure my parents didn't mind using them as a tool to teach me and my siblings discipline. I have been cat/ dog sitting over night and drop ins since I was 11. I'd take care of your fur baby as if they were my own. Im a student at Virginia Tech. My priority is the animal at home but I would have to leave them for up to two hours at a time, twice a day M-F for class. If you were to board your dog at my house I would be the main caregiver. I live with 4 other animal loving college students in a neighborhood with a yard. We have multiple walking trails surrounding our house and lots of time and energy to make your puppy feel at home .
About: I have many years of experience with fostering both dogs and litters of puppies of different sizes. Through my fostering, I have gained experience with providing dogs physical therapy, taking care of blind dogs, and administering medicine. I love animals! I am a student, but really only have class for an hour or to a day. The rest of my day is completely open to taking care of animals! I live in a community that doesn’t have fenced backyards, but does have fenced in dogs parks for dogs of different sizes! In clients homes, I am totally opening to do whatever is requested!
About: I grew up with two dogs all my life, I worked at Petco for a few years, I am super active and am patient with animals. I am a graduate student taking 4 classes and am off Thursday-Sunday. I volunteer at the animal shelter and put in multiple hours a week. I always have eyes on the animal. There will not be a time the dog will go unsupervised. I have been dog certified with harnesses and leashes.
“Nancy has so much experience and connection with dogs! I left my two precocious coonhounds in her care for a week and she handled it like a pro. One of my dogs was anxious being away from me and she did a great job building a connection with him and helping him settle in to his home away from home. The other one of my dogs had trouble with marking things inside her house on the first day! I was across the country and couldn't do anything about it, but Nancy reassured me and handled the dog and cleanup with grace. I was very grateful. Both dogs settled in and I came back to them happy and healthy. They got regular walks, outside time in her fenced backyard, and lots of attention. This home away from home was so much better than boarding them somewhere where they'd be crated most of the time. They had a blast and I was able to relax and not worry about them.”
“Definitely recommend! Davis did such a wonderful job with our boy! He kept us updated on how his stay was going, had toys + a bed all ready for him, + make sure he had lots of attention. Hope to have Ozzy stay again!”
“Dixie had a great day chilling out and socializing with Deja. Deja's home is very accommodating for extremely needy apartment raised dogs like mine!!!”
Linda & David L.
“Linda and David are amazing. They took a great care of my dog. They kept me updated, sent pictures every day, were super quick to respond to messages, accommodate to our delay to return from our trip, and were very nice and kind. I will use them again.”
“From including our pup on weekend adventures to giving her plenty of attention, Julia was wonderful with our dog. About one week before, Julia met our dog and asked what her typical routine was. She learned the best way to work with our dog and offered tips to help with behavioral challenges. Then during our trip away, Julia gave us little check-ins with pictures of our pup. We could tell Julia was a perfect mix of caring and careful with our dog. We will happily turn to her for help again.”
“Aside from ensuring your children are in good hands, the idea of making sure your 4-legged babies are taken care of. And Cait did just this. Her welcoming spirit and lovable nature to my Lucy was just wonderful. You rock! THANKS a million! Kathy”
“Amelia was so kind and gentle with my two cats and oversized doggo! She was attentive to their needs and made sure they got lots of love while we were out of town! Our senior cat needed medication and she was super great about giving her the right meds at the right time! Would definitely recommend Amelia to any pet parent!”
Richard & Kelly V.
“My dog seemed to have a wonderful stay, and I loved getting pictures when he went on walks. He loves to be outside and active. Richard was wonderful to deal with, and I definitely recommend boarding your dogs with him.”
“They’re one of the best dog sitters ever!”
“Amanda was wonderful! I was very nervous about the thought of leaving my dog with someone that wasn't a friend or family member--In the 3 years I've had him, he's never stayed with someone I didn't know personally. Amanda set my fears at ease and let me come check out her house and yard with my dog prior to his stay, and was very friendly, helpful, and gave great communication (with pictures of my dog!) prior to and during his stay. I highly recommend!”
“Deann was great with communication and sending us updates, and she took care of our dogs very nicely. Dropping them off and picking them up was a breeze, would gladly use her service again. Thanks so much!”
“Makenzie is an amazing sitter! She provided clear and consistent communication regarding our pup, which put us at ease with our last minute trip. I highly recommend her services for your fur baby.”
