Pet Sitting & Drop Ins in Blossom Valley, San Jose
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
About: Growing up with a dog and a cat at the age of 5, I realized that was the start of my love for animals. I’m always creating a special bond with all the animals I’m around. Since my home is too small to have a pet of my own, I want to give my love to all the other animals that need a little extra love. I work from home so days are pretty flexible. Sometime weekends might be a little harder for me since I try to keep busy on the weekends but I’ll try my best to sneak away to care for my furry friend. I try to build a bond with the pet first so they can trust me. From there, I make sure gates/doors/ windows are closed and if we go on a walk or go to the park the pet is always on a leash unless told otherwise.
“Michelle came to help us with our chickens. My kiddos had put the food in the wrong place and she texted us, when we were not in an area with service she looked for and found the feed. Chickens were new for Michelle but she was willing to help us out and did great!”
About: I’m naturally drawn to dogs. Built immediate trust not just with the dogs but with the owners as well. Dog sat from as early as 8 weeks. Played, walked and given meds to dogs Small business owner with available time during the week and weekend to play, walk and check in. Also available for sitter services for those much needed vacations or simply to enjoy time away from home. I house/dog sat for 8+ years for doctors who were on call or went on vacation. I visited the dog the day before to introduce myself and go over their routine or special requests.
“Kristin is great! She spent quality time with our fur babies, even in the rain. They were so happy to have someone so attentive spending time with them. This was the first time we have ever used Rover, and it went so well we will be using not only Rover, but Kristin again in the near future!”
“I believe Rachael would be an exceptional candidate to watch your fur baby. I have had the pleasure of witnessing Rachael's innate passion for animals and her remarkable ability to connect with them on a deep level. Rachael's love for dogs is truly unparalleled. From a young age, she has displayed a unique bond with these furry companions, demonstrating empathy, patience, and understanding in her interactions with them. Her unwavering commitment to their well-being is evident in the way she goes above and beyond to ensure their happiness and comfort.”
“I actually hired Jennifer to drop in twice while I was on vacation to feed my fish. I have two tanks, one with a few cichlids and a smaller tank with community tropical fish and I was worried about leaving them for 13 days. Jennifer came to check out the tanks and I left pre-portioned out food for the tanks for the two visits and instructions to top off the tank if the water level got too low. Everything worked out perfectly and she sent me photos of the tank and fish to assure me that everything looked good. I got home to healthy fish in a clear tank and was able to enjoy my vacation that much more, knowing that I didn't have to worry about them. Thanks!”

About: Young or old, big or small, I LOVE THEM ALL! I raised my own 80 lbs fur baby along side my human baby for nearly 14 years. It was the greatest joy of my life, but sadly, he's no longer with us. During his lifetime, we enjoyed long hikes and walks, dog parks, home-made meals, and of course cuddle time! I work a couple of part time jobs that revolve around my daughter's school schedule, (and up until recently, my senior dog's medication schedule). I also do quite a bit of volunteering, but my schedule remains flexible. With the recent passing of my dog, I'm looking to fill the gaps in my schedule with work that fills my heart as well as my time. I believe pets thrive with love, structure, and consistency. I look forward to working with owners to learn and reinforce whatever routines and habits that suit your little buddy needs.
“Yuritza is extremely trustworthy and dedicated to her work. Being a fellow dog owner she understands the high level of expectation there can be when providing care. She is one of the few people i trust with my two pitties.”
About: I love being around dogs, they are such sweethearts. I have walked many dogs from maltipoos to golden doodles, labradoodles, beagles and huskies! I’ve also done drop in visits where I took the dogs out for play time, feeding and bathroom! I’ve been around dog most of my life! I am available Monday through Friday from 7am to 7pm. If I’m out of town I would let pet parents know ahead of time! I currently am out for summer break from SJSU, which is why I have more free time to spend with some sweet pups! I have my own sweet pup, who is a 3 year old maltipoo named Rocky! He is my little ball of fluff and joy! For dog walks, I would go to the house and either the pet parent can open the door or leave the key so I may walk their pups! And when coming back if pet parent opened the door then I’ll will return their pup to them personally. if pet parent left key, I would take their pup back in for walker and depending if pet parent wants their pup to roam free or have them be in their kennel! For drop ins, I would greet the pups and take them outside to go pee. After I would play with the pups and feed them if pet parent asked me too. When done I would either let pups roam or take them to their kennels depending on the desire of pet parent. I would lock up and head out! For both services of dog walking and dog sitting, I would send updates and photos on their pups!
“Geniya did a great job taking care of our cats while we were on vacation. She is very good with cats and our more timid cat became comfortable around her. She is very reliable and made sure all of the cats needs were met. Recommended!”
About: I absolutely love dogs and cats! I personally have a boxer beagle mix who is the love of my life. Being a dog owner allows me to provide reliable, responsible and trustworthy care to your pet. I understand the anxiety and worry that comes with leaving your pet with with a stranger, I myself find it difficult sometimes. But for the pets I have taken care of for friends and family, I was constant communication with the owner, sent tons of pictures, talked to the dog/cat as if they were humans and did my best to make sure they’re happy. As a River caregiver and a pet owner, I plan to provide the best care possible. I work full time but I’m an early riser, which means I am able to do early morning walks and drop ins. I also get off work before 5, therefore I have plenty of time for evening walks or dog park time. Whichever routine works for you and your pet. Weekends I’m mostly free unless I have a trip planned. I’m a very respectful person. If I were to care for your pet in your home, I’d follow all rules and restrictions set by you. And would communicate anything that needed to be clarified.
“Stephanie has been our pet sitter close to a year now. She is reliable and takes care of my dog as her own. She goes over and beyond when it comes to taking care of your loved ones. I highly recommend Stephanie.”
“Maria was wonderful with my senior dog Kobe. Kobe is blind, deaf and a 17 year old lab mix. Maria was very patient, helped with giving him meds and helped with feeding. Kobe was well taken care of and will definitely recommend Maria for your boarding needs. Maria’s two dogs were very kind to our senior dog and kept their distance.”
“Sandra was very kind and knowledgeable about dog sitting. Her experience at the shelter showed through her actions when taking care of my pets. She was committed to taking care of them and was mindful of the times it was too hot for them to be over exerted. She did an excellent job staying in touch”
