Andrea was great with my large Boxer/Pit mix! She took him for walks, sent pics, and communication was excellent and timely.

Rest assured that your pet is getting the best care with Eric. We appreciated getting pictures and comments about how Ozzy was doing. Eric has plenty of room for pets to run…and a great fenced in area when needed. Can’t say enough good things about this place. Ozzy will be excited to return! Five stars all the way!

Even with a wet/rainy weekend, Chris took our two dogs out for multiple walks. He also sent several photos during the weekend to let us know that they were doing well. Will happily use Chris' services again.

Archie seemed to do just fine with Jenna. She has a great place right on the lake. It’s very laid back and perfect for his personality. Jenna sent us updates on how things were going and was flexible on pickup time.

Elizabeth is a natural when it comes to care of dogs. I tease her calling her the "dog whisperer"! I have watched her nurse back to health a very abused and neglected dog that had many special needs. The dog flourished after coming under the care of Elizabeth and her husband. The dog recently passed away and it left a big hole in their lives. Elizabeth has cared for our dog on many occasions and has even called and simply asked if our dog might come over for a couple hour visit. She is patient and compassionate. She also loves the outdoors and going on walks and has taken our dog for long walks. In her spare time I have observed her searching the internet looking at dogs. She will often comment to me that she has "fallen in love" with a dog. She seems to be drawn to all types of dogs but has a fondness for those with special needs. She is the first person I call when I need someone to watch my dog. I highly recommend Elizabeth as she is responsible and a loving pet caregiver.

About: I have grown up with and taking care of dogs my whole like. I have experience in animals with special care needed. While in college and beyond, I had a diabetic cat who required insulin twice a day and extra care. Drop your dog off with me and I will treat them as if they are my own. They will have free reign of the house including couch and bed. I live in an area adjacent to green areas where you can walk in peace and are able to take care of your friends with seriousness, passion and love thanks to my decades of experience in contact with animals. Attention to their nutrition, hygiene and recreation will be complete.

Grace was so loving with our puppies. She took good care of them and made sure they were comfortable. She sent pictures while we were gone which helped us feel better about leaving our pups behind during our trip. I recommend her without reservations.

We cannot thank Brooke enough for loving up on our girl while we were gone for a family medical emergency. A very stressful time in our lives was softened knowing our fur baby was in good hands and having a blast. Many updates and pictures which we loved and great communication. Highly recommend, we will book again!

Denise is a wonderful pet mom! She has a warm and welcoming home for any pet owner to feel comfortable leaving their babies in her care. My Ace played on her beautiful beach and enjoyed the company of her Goldens. I would recommend her highly!

Tracy takes great care of our pup when we need help with overnight sitting, walks or visiting in our home when were at work. Our dog is always excited to see her and is so tired after the walks she takes him on! She is so caring and loving with our dog - I won't leave him with anyone other than Tracy!

About: I love animals and have lots of experience with many different pets with having five other siblings growing up. They need lots of love and affection! My schedule is flexible right now. I can devote lots of time and attention to your pet. Treating your pet with kind and caring hands. Our family has a three year old Goldendoodle that loves people and other pets! Your pet will be taken great care of and have lots of time and attention devoted to them! Before we got our dog we had two cats for many years. I have a ten year old boy at home and my husband. I also have a four year old granddaughter that comes over to visit often. They all love animals also!

I can personally and professional attest that Amy Nelson is a responsible, caring, and trustworthy person. Her well of knowledge about dogs is vast and deep. She has watched my dogs more times than I can count and knowing how well they are cared for with Amy eliminates the stress of leaving them. If your pet is staying at Amy's, they will be spoiled by the amazing setting, fenced in yard and lots of cuddles inside. If Amy is coming to your home, you can trust that your dog(s) will be equally as spoiled and that your home will be in the exact same condition as when you left. Amy has owned a variety of dogs with different personalities, issues and medical needs - she knows how to handle it all with attention to detail. You can't go wrong with hiring Amy!

I have been a friend of Natalie’s for a long time and believe me when I say she loves animals. She grew up taking care of all kinds of animals including dogs, pigs, horses, and cattle. I think this is where her love for animals comes from. She has sat my dogs on multiple occasions and every time they see Natalie, they are excited because she takes care of them. Anyone would feel comfortable with this responsible young woman taking care of their dog.

Jodan was the perfect dog sitter. She accommodated a slight change in travel plans and was happy to finish out my pup's Rx. She was very responsive and kept me updated while I was away. My China gives her 4 paws and a tail up <3

Our 3 year old lab Luna seemed to have a great time with Colleen and her girls!! The girls were really sweet with her and entertained her a lot - she was so exhausted coming home!! We also got daily picture and video updates which was fun! When we first dropped off Luna we were nervous because she was not getting along with their dog Lina, but thankfully Colleen and her family did not force it and they actually brought Lina somewhere else for the week so that Luna could be “free” in the house which we really appreciated and know was probably hard for them!! If we are up in the area again without a sitter we would rebook. Thanks Colleen, and girls! :)
