“Rosemary is the best! She is super friendly and loves animals. She walked my two dogs, and they had the best time. Rosemary is super flexible, and definitely put me at ease about finding a new dog walker. 10/10 recommend!”
“Kayley was fantastic! Gave our boy a good long walk which is his favorite thing. She even cooked some carrots for him since he’s too much a wuss to eat normal or frozen ones lol we will definitely use Kayley again!”

About: I’m 28 and I have taken care of many family animals and I’d love to commit to be your pets sitter. I’ll make sure that your pet is treated like my own and they’ll never lack love and care. I’m pet sitting full time. I’m gone about 3-4 hours a day total. So I have plenty of time fto spend with your pet ! I live in a 1 bedroom apartment but I love going outside so I definitely have plenty of room to play with animals. We can walk to a nearby park.
“Chloe did a great job with my pup on short notice! She followed all my instructions perfectly and was able to handle my large dog that sometimes pulls.”
“Brittany goes out of her way to make sure that we and our pets are well cared for! We don’t leave them behind very often but, when necessary, we love it when Brittany takes over! She is like having a favorite aunt show up and the dogs and cats love her! Brittany is also very responsive to communications and provides timely updates on a daily basis, so we are aware of what’s happening in our pets lives while we’re away. I would not hesitate to use her pet sitting services anytime we need help!”
“Michelle is an extremely responsible and reliable pet sitter. She is one of the most caring and loving pet sitters you could ask for! I would trust her in a heartbeat. She will send you photos and make sure your pet is well taken care of. Look no further for the best pet sitter that you can get.”
“Kevin is incredibly reliable when it comes to take great care of your dog. I often needed his help with my puppy and he’s never once let me down. He’s always careful and prepared to meet her needs, and I have always trusted him to take good care of her. My dog moon loves him so much, she’s always so happy to see him. He’s really awesome and I know his love for dogs makes him the perfect fit for this position!”

“Emma took great care of our dog for one week. We received regular updates, Emma is a great communicator. We felt so confident and good on our vacation because we knew our dog Tori was being well cared for. She sent us cute pictures. She stayed with him for extended periods of time and followed all the instructions for Snacks. Our elderly dog was in great shape when we came home. We are so grateful.”
About: With two years of dedicated pet care experience, including experience taking care of my own cat, I have gained valuable insights into the unique needs and behaviors of our pawsome friends. During this time, I have provided attentive and compassionate care to cats/dogs of various breeds and temperaments. With a deep love and understanding of pets, I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment for your furry companions. You can trust that they will receive the highest level of care and attention under my watch, enabling you to have peace of mind while you are away. As a college student, integrating pet care into my daily routine is a fulfilling and manageable part of my schedule. Here's how I make it work: * Morning and Evening Routines: I end and start my day by spending quality time with my cat. I dedicate a few minutes in the morning for feeding, grooming, and providing fresh water. This sets a positive tone for both my cat and I. In the evening, I engage in interactive play sessions or cuddle time to help my cat relax and unwind. * Scheduled Play and Exercise Breaks: I set aside specific times during the day for play and exercise sessions with my cat. These breaks not only provide mental and physical stimulation for my feline friend but also serve as refreshing breaks for myself. * Utilizing Cat Enrichment: I give my cat interactive toys, scratching posts, or puzzle feeders to keep her mentally engaged while I’m away. These enrichment activities provide stimulation and prevent boredom, especially during longer periods when I can't actively engage with my cat. * Self-Care and Bonding: While juggling college life and cat care, I remember to take breaks for self-care and bonding moments with my furry friend. Taking time for myself and enjoying quality moments with my cat is mutually beneficial by reducing stress and promoting overall well-being. When caring for a pet in a client's home, I prioritize creating a safe, comfortable, and nurturing environment for their beloved companion. Here's how I approach pet care in a client's home: 1. Initial Consultation: Before the pet care begins, I conduct a thorough initial consultation with the client to understand their pet’s specific needs, routines, and any special instructions. This allows me to tailor my care accordingly and ensure a seamless transition for the pet. 2. Daily Care Routine: I adhere to the established routine provided by the client, including feeding/walking schedules, litter box maintenance, and any required medication administration. I make sure to follow dietary guidelines and provide fresh water at all times. 3. Monitoring Health and Behavior: I am attentive to any changes in the pet’s behavior, appetite, or other habits. If there are any signs of discomfort or illness, I promptly notify the client and, if necessary, seek veterinary care as per their instructions. 4. Attention and Affection: I prioritize offering companionship and affection to the pet, providing reassurance and comfort during the client's absence. This may include petting, talking to the pet, or simply spending quality time in their presence. 5. Home Security: Alongside pet care, I ensure the security of the client's home. I follow any specific instructions regarding access, locking doors and windows, and maintaining confidentiality. 6. Communication with the Client: Throughout the pet care period, I maintain open communication with the client. I provide regular updates, including photos and messages, to keep them informed about their pet’s well-being and activities. 7. Respect for the Home: I treat the client's home with the utmost respect, maintaining cleanliness and order. I follow any guidelines or restrictions provided by the client regarding specific areas of the house. By providing dedicated, personalized care for the client's pet in their own home, I strive to create a stress-free experience for both the client and their furry friend. I aim to go above and beyond to ensure the pet feels loved, secure, and well-cared for during their owner's absence.
About: My mom works in veterinary medicine so we always had so many different animals around. Cats, dogs, birds, Snakes, guinea pigs; a little of everything. I ended up also working in vet med and have been working directly with animals for 6 years now. The last 2 years I have worked in a fear free clinic and have a special love for giant breed dogs! Evenings and weekends are the best times for me for drop ins and walks; but I have flexible availability throughout the day to meet your needs. I have a two story town house, so even though I have cats in the home, they will be upstairs and a baby gate will be on the stairs. I have a small shaded yard and a bigger open field behind us. We are close to a road, so pets will not be allowed outside without a leash as well as a slip lead if you are okay with that. I will also ask for any dogs being taken on a walk to have a leash and a slip lead as well. I will provide the lead.

About: I've taken care of animals for as long as I can remember. Throughout my childhood, my family had several cats and 3 dogs. I have experience with animals of all ages, from kitten/puppy to senior pets. I currently have 2 cats of my own, but I'm more than capable of caring for dogs as well (of all sizes/breeds). Most of my friends have dogs and I always look forward to seeing them and playing with them when I get the chance. I would love a dog of my own, but being a renter and moving around a lot I can't take on an additional pet at the moment. Even though I'm a cat household, all animals are welcome and will be treated like one of the family. I work full time from home so I'm always around to look after your fur babies. I can take frequent breaks during the work day to check in on them whether it be to feed them, play for a bit, or take care of bathroom breaks. During non-working hours, they will have my full attention. When your pet is in my care, my goal is to love them and care for them like they're one of my own. I want to adapt to your pet's needs whether that means a lot of play time, walks, or just some quality couch time. If your pet has any special needs or takes medication, I can accommodate and take care of them as needed. I'll provide as much interaction as possible and keep them safe and cared for (whether that's in your home or mine). I have a small, fenced in yard big enough for dogs to run around or play a game of fetch.
About: I had a Maltese named Angel growing up and was the primary caregiver helping to walk her and feed her every day for the last few years of her life. I miss her terribly and love small dogs. I also equally love cats. I have friends with cats and have been asked to help take care of them before so I have had several years of experience with cats on and off in the last 5 years as well. I even looked after two cats overnight when one had been neutered and could not be home alone. I am a graduate student and my week and weekends are very flexible. My schedule is basically mine to adjust as I want with only two virtual classes and a few meetings during the day. I would like to take hourly breaks in my day to walk dogs for exercise. I would go to my clients home because I don't have pet stuff at my house currently. But I'd make sure the pets felt comfortable. I will give lots of pats and cuddles and give food and treats that are pre-approved by the pet parent.
“Jacqueline is very passionate about caring for animals, especially dogs. She has watched my family's two dogs (one chweenie and an italian greyhound) for a number of years and always done an exceptional job with them. Both of them present unique challenges (pickiness over food, excersize requirements, knowing when to let them out), but Jacqueline has taken the time to understand them and provide appropriate care. I know my dogs have throughly enjoyed being cared for by Jacqueline and I would highly recommend her to anyone else!”
“One of the best animal care givers around. Your pet will get loving care and attention at all times. I highly recommend Axel for all pet caregiving needs.”
“Wonderful experience. Blythe was great!”
“I owe Darnell x100000. Everything I could ask for in a walker. I was nervous because my dog can be a puller and especially crazy with new people . Darnell took great care and things went better than I could imagine. Will definitely hope that he’ll be available in the future . Ice loved him! Thanks again bro !”
About: I just retired & have lots of time on my hands. I enjoy pets & have reliable transportation to get where I need to go. It’s a good fit because I just retired June 7th and I believe pet sitting will work for me. I’m really an active retiree, but I can make it work. I can’t watch peoples pets at my apartment, but I can watch peoples pets at their home. I can walk your pets and spend time with them.
