About: Dogs have become a part of my life since I met my partner in 2014, and since then I've been invested in making sure that every furbaby of mine lives the best life they can. I give them the as much variation in stimulation as I can, including playing, nosework, mind games, physical activity, and simply just letting them sniff to their snout's content on our walks. I can also go over obedience training (we got our current dog when he was 2 months old, after all). I work part-time as a landscaper, so I have plenty of flexibility to accommodate your pet's needs. I just need a heads up, and so I should be able to make it happen. I always walk with a leash since I'm concerned about potential reactivity, lack of puppy stage socialization, other safety issues and recall...etc. and as such I always try to keep my distance from other dogwalkers, unless both parties are sure that all dogs involved are "friendly." I'll step aside for just people as well, depending on the dog I'm walking. I believe Leave It, Drop It, and Give are the most important commands you can teach your dog. I always pick up after them.
Joanne "Lili" C.
“Lili looked after my two aged golden retrievers regularly and was wonderful. Lili really cares for all animals and will do whatever it takes, going above and beyond, to make sure they are happy. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
“Donnie is friendly and easy to communicate with. He’s always on time and reliable. My dog loves him and I trust him with her. Thanks Donnie!”
“Michelle is warm, friendly and great with dogs! She is knowledgeable about the care of pets and the Rover particulars. She handled our Kenneth beautifully and we have already rebooked. Great communication, we recommend her services highly.”
“Megan did a great job feeding my 2 cats while I was on vacation. They were on a twice a day schedule and she made sure to feed them in yhe mornign and night. She also stayed a while to give them affection and attention. When I got home everything was locked up tight, and everything was just as it was when I left.”
“I am very thankful to Amber for coming in several times during the weekend to take care of my 3 dogs. She did very well with all of them, even the difficult, cranky old Rosita! Amber is very caring and good with animals”
“Kristen is the type of person you want in your pack. She is a kind, compassionate human and is a friend to critters great and small. Kristen is responsible and committed to whatever job or task lays ahead of her. She is professional and takes pride in her work. I am highly recommending you hire Kristen to care for your animals if you want a loving and responsible surrogate while you’re away.”
“Emily and I met years ago while she was exploring the veterinary field. Her interest and drive to learn is what first encouraged me to reach out to her about general travel care with my love, Kingston (half corgi/half lab). Emily has been a god sent not only when caring for him (sending me pictures and other updates) but when I bring him with me (when available she always has advice or suggestions that help). She's honest, knowledgeable, accomodating and compassionate when she cares for animals and to this day is one of two people I trust to leave Kingston with for any period of time. She is occasionally able to come and stay with him when I travel and when she hasn't had that availability she has been willing to take him home with her. I trust Emily with the love of my life and would not be able to travel as much as I have or enjoy long trips without knowing Kingston is in such great hands. We love you Emily <3”
Alyssa & Kayleigh C.
“Alyssa and Kayleigh took wonderful care of our senior cat! They had no problem administering his medications and spent good time with him. Their notes, updates, and photos assured us that he was in good hands. Would definitely book them again!”
“I was really worried about leaving my dog at home while I went on a business trip. Emily filled in last minute and served as a wonderful caretaker for my dog (which is a border collie). Emily made me feel so comfortable during this process. She was just wonderful with my dog. So reliable. So kind and caring. Highly recommended.”
“Maggie loves animals. She is a responsible caregiver and takes the job very seriously. She treats all animals in her care with kindness and has a nack for understanding them. She will go above and beyond.”
About: I grew up on a family farm with a wide range of family dogs. I have experience with small all the way up to extra large dogs. I’ve taken care of neighbors and friends animals when they’ve gone away or needed extra assistance. I’m familiar with crate training and puppy training so if either are needed while taking care of your little one in your home I’m more than happy to oblige. I was previously a husky, Australian shepherd and heeler owner that have since passed on from old age/health issues. I grew up with labs and Great Pyrenees on the farm. I currently do not have a dog because I don’t personally want my pup to live in a restricted apartment. Once I am able to purchase a house, I’ll have pets again ♥️ I currently drive Medicare/Medicaid patients all around Vermont and New Hampshire for work. So although my schedule varies on a weekly basis, I am almost always free on the weekends as well as after work to take care of your pets! Although I currently do not have a fenced in yard, we have a small open yard and plenty of sidewalk to go for a nice walk on.
“Emily did a fantastic job jumping in last minute to take care of our new puppy and our cat!”
“Eli has spent a lot of time with my dogs. He shows them so much love, immediately getting on the floor to greet the puppy playfully, and responding to the older dog with belly rubs and affection. Eli demonstrates an understanding of dog behavior and development such as positively redirecting the teething puppy with chew toys. He is responsible and timely, showing up when he says that he will. I trust Eli with my dogs not only because of the observable interactions, but also because he genuinely loves my dogs. I highly recommend Eli as a responsible, experienced caregiver for dogs.”
“John is truly the pet whisperer! Not only do our animals love him but I swear every time they are with him they have better manners than before. He is acutely aware of behavioral and emotional needs and has great advice on how to handle these things. I couldn't recommend John more highly.”
“Chris is great. Very playful and attentive. My dog loves him!”
About: I have owned animals my entire life, so taking care of them and giving them love is second nature. I currently have one cat of my own and am in training at the Dakin Humane Society for cat care. I love taking care of friends pets, and figured I’d help out others, too. I prefer to do drop in’s in the morning before work and the evening after work. I live in the Greenfield area and work in Amherst, so those areas are ideal. I clean litter boxes daily and am happy to help give pets medication. I have learned to adapt to different animal behaviors and will do my best to make your pet feel loved while you’re away!
About: When I lived in my grandmothers house I would frequently house sit for relatives that rented out the bottom apartment. They have 2 senior dogs that needed a little extra attention and love, and a few house plants. I took care of them roughly 4 or 5 times over the years (not consecutively, so not quite an entire year of experience) so that their moms could go on vacation and recover from hospital stays. Since then, I have gone on to get a job at a Doggie Daycare facility out near Boston, where I am continuing to learn more about dog behavior and health. At my job we are trained on safety procedures & health concerns to be on the lookout for, and I have been trained to watch for body language changes. I am currently looking for something to fill my time during the beginning of the week. On weekends and later on in the week I commute to Boston for my job at the doggie daycare. I am also flexible with my weekend dates, so with enough notice I can move almost anything around. I can easily crate a dog if needed for safety of any kind. My position at the daycare is to constantly be on the lookout for changes in behavior and mood, so you can entrust that I will always have your pups safety as priority number one. I am also well versed in being able to reward the good behavior and ignore the bad (within reason) so as not to encourage attention seeking behavior, but still reward even the simplest well done tasks (sitting down/relaxing, playing safely).
“Meghan is very responsible and takes great care of her dog. She provides lots of love and stability for her rescue pup including by attending training, and taking her to the dog park and on frequent walks.”
About: i’ve always had dogs growing up. I used to walk and bath dogs in middle school and once I became 16 I’ve only had jobs with dogs. I have experience with special needs dogs, old dogs, young dogs, and puppies. i’ve always been reliable and will go above and beyond for every dog. I’m available for dog walking and drop-in’s Monday/Tuesday anytime of day. Wednesday-Saturday before 8:30 am or after 6pm. In addition I’m also available for holidays! I’m able to follow your instructions, scoop yards, crate dogs, play outside, and refresh waters, and make sure your house is 100% secure before I leave. For non fenced in yards I prefer to use a slip lead if you don’t have a martingale collar or chain collar.
