Sam was great at communication and adjusting to my schedule when I was out of town. Sam took great care of my cat and made me feel so much better about leaving her for two weeks! Thanks Sam!

Lauren was wonderful!! You can tell she really loves animals and loved our pup like our own. She communicated with every visit, was timely, professional, friendly, and even did some extra visits so our dog had more outside time. We will definitely use again! Thank you!!!

Megan was so great! Every time she saw Allie I received a summary of the visit and photos. That gave me a lot of peace of mind because I always knew how my dog was doing. Allie can be very skittish around new people but obviously loved Megan. Allie also has a lot of energy and Megan did a great job of playing with her. I will definitely have Megan watch Allie in the future.

I couldn’t have asked for a better person to take care of my dog while I was away! Kate was so caring, thoughtful and kind. I loved not only the notes Kate would leave per visit but the pictures she sent of my sweet girl while I was away. ♥️ I would trust Kate to watch my sweet girl again :)

Oh my gosh - I totally hit the jackpot finding Caitlin. She was very professional and took detailed notes during our meet and greet. While I was gone, Caitlin sent such wonderful summaries of each visit and included lots of pictures. It was so reassuring to know that my cats were in such good hands while I was away. And my girls are such goofballs, it was fun to share the updates with my relatives. Caitlin really “gets” cats. One of my girls is wary of strangers but she quickly warmed up to Caitlin. Caitlin just has that vibe and understanding of kitties. I’m also very appreciative of Caitlin’s patience and understanding when our plans were a little up in the air. One of the factors was that one of my cats stopped eating her kibble. Thankfully her appetite resumed before my trip. Caitlin said she’d keep an eye on her eating habits and asked where the carriers were just in case she needed medical attention. A++++++, five stars, 11/10, would book again. Thank you Caitlin!

We are very happy with Marissa’s first time taking care of our cat Sweet Pea. We enjoyed the daily check in card and photos! We found it very easy to communicate with Marissa even with the 6 hour time difference. Our kitty was well cared for and happy to have us come home! We felt confident and comfortable with Marissa caring for our beloved pet. We will definitely book her again very soon!

Arwen was excellent. We had just gone through a terrible experience boarding our cat while on vacation and determined he would do better staying at home where he is comfortable. This was a far better experience than the kennel. Arwen took excellent care of our cat, she followed all of our instructions and sent updates for every visit (2x per day). Arwen helped us feel comfortable so we did not have to worry about our cat while we were on vacation. I would highly recommend her to care for your animals!

Caleb and I live in the same apartment building, and as he and I have become good friends, he has also become quite close with my 3-year old rescue dog Josie. Whenever she sees him out of the window she gets riled up, wagging her tail and barking to get his attention (she unfortunately does not realize he is not coming to play with her every time she sees him outside). Whenever I need someone to watch her, he's always the first person I'll ask. I know he's going to look after her like she's his own dog.

About: I have done several pet sitting jobs, and have a healthy and happy labradoodle at home named Milo. I am also experienced in dog walking. I am unable to kennel dogs due to my living situation, but I am able to take care of dogs at the clients homes when needed. I will make sure the dogs are consistently watered and walked. I understand that pets need to be engaged with, but I also understand that just like us they need space. The goal is that me and your dog form an uncle nephew relationship, not only because I can pop in and take care of them without being too intrusive to their routines, but because your pets are your family and need to treated with respect and care. I am also certified in pet first aid an CPR.

Will is awesome! This was our first time using Will and he did a great job. I was gone for 9 days and was updated constantly. One of my cats gets spicy and temperamental. Will handled it with ease and got her back to feeling comfortable within a few days. When I came home my cats were happy and my house was clean. Everything was just as I left it. Thanks will!

Elizabeth is amazing with pets. I have a Boston Terrier that I am very picky about, and Elizabeth follows all of my rules for her. Elizabeth is also very good about making me feel comfortable about leaving my dog with her. She sends me updates and pictures. My dog, Charlotte, loves to go and stay with Elizabeth and her family because they spend so much time with her. She gets lots of play time and snuggle time whenever she stays with Elizabeth. I highly recommend her!

About: I have grown up around dogs my whole life. I raised and trained my dog since she was a puppy. I have also interned at a veterinary hospital. I am currently studying animal and poultry sciences and am learning about companion animal behavior to help how I care for your animals. I am currently a full-time student at Virginia Tech. The best times for me are Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday 11am -7pm. Those are the best days for me to spend quality time with your animal. I will not be offering home sitting or pet sitting, but I will be offering dog walking services. I can ensure safety with dog walking by making sure we are going at a safe pace curated to your dog and their needs. Staying hydrated throughout walks, and also being mindful of traffic or other people around to ensure our safety.

Gwyneth was a stellar dog-sitter for my German Shepard! I left for a 2-day visit to see family, and returned to a happy dog and a clean home. Gwyneth made sure to send pictures and keep me updated on the welfare of my dog, and even tidied up my house! I definitely recommend Gwyneth to anyone who is looking for a reliable and responsible pet-sitter.

About: I have about 2 years experience working in the ICU of an emergency animal hospital. I’ve had to take care of puppies, seniors, injured dogs, dogs recovering from surgery, dogs prone to eating things they’re not supposed to, and everything in between. I’m working towards getting into vet school, so I’m trying to save up money while doing what I love most: spending time with animals! I have classes at 8 or 9am every morning until the afternoon so I am free to shower your baby with love anytime after school. I can’t offer services my home currently but rest assured I will be respectful of your space while making sure your furbaby will get everything they require.

Katie did great, I would definitely use her again!! She was asked to take my Cooper out to pee and she took him in a nice walk and he loved it. Could not have asked for any one better.
