Pet Sitting & Drop Ins in Burke Heights, Madison, WI
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
About: I grew up with family dogs and took responsibility for training them. I'm good with all of my friends dogs, even the ones that are on the shy side. I take care to ensure they get what the need for day - walks, food, naptime - and make sure they stick to their schedules. I work from home on a flexible schedule (though, regular business hours) so I have plenty of time to watch over pets to lessen separation anxiety and ensure they have enough outside-time and whatever else they may need. I like to go for walks in the afternoon to clear my head and I welcome any furball to join me! I am also a runner so if you're doggo has extra energy and is used to going on runs, I'm happy to accommodate that as well. I have a fenced in yard and no pets living with me. I can accommodate crates and if your pup is a free-roamer, that is fine with me too.
“Sara has been an absolute godsend as a pet sitter! As I've grown older, leaving my beloved furry companions behind when I need to travel has become increasingly difficult. However, Sara has brought such peace of mind with her compassionate and responsible care. She not only tends to the practical needs of my pets but showers them with genuine affection, replicating the comfort and routine they're used to in my absence. Her reliability and attentiveness make me feel at ease, knowing my pets are in the best hands possible. I wholeheartedly recommend Sara to anyone seeking a trustworthy and caring pet sitter”
“We have had Tracy watch our boys both for vacations, and weekend trips. She is absolutely amazing with our 2 energetic puppies, and we are so thankful we found her. We don’t have to worry when we are gone because we know she is giving Murphy and Jack extra special loving! The boys get so excited to see her. She truly has a special heart for animals.”

“Mei Lin is a natural dog person she has travelled coast to coast with her Doidle, Aabine, a happy girl she’s raised from puppyhood. Mei lin is respinsible, and observant. I would trust her with my dog anytime.”
“Shannon did a great job and gave us a full, satisfying report. It’s good to have someone closeby whom we can trust to check in on our dog when we’re out.”
“Very communicative, accommodating, & friendly! Joshua is fantastic to work with. He stopped over for a one time drop in visit while I was on my way back from a work trip, and when my schedule just simply did not line up; I needed that extra hand. Joshua asked the right questions before and during the visit, and even shared photos during his drop-in, including a summary of Maggie's behavior! He gave me such piece of mind knowing my pup would be cared for. I highly recommend him!”

“Logan has owned pets since he was five years old; a cat and dog lover he is a kind and compassionate man and caring with both people and pets. As a college student he drove home overnight from a distant college to spend his last day with his beloved aged cat and absolutely adores his current brood of young golden doodles Harper and Banjo. You will find him respectful, honest and attentive to your wishes and your pet's needs.”
“Suellen was amazing with my fur babies!!! She not only house sat them at my place, but she took very good care of them in two separate occasions I traveled for two weeks (each time). She took them to the dog park,walks, played a lot with them, and even slept with them next to her 😍😍😍. She sent me tons of nice and cutie pics and videos as well!!! The updates gave me the piece of mind while I was in Hawaii swimming with dolphins or Myrtle beach while having my margaritas!!! Also she gave me fast response. Suellen is definitely a dog lover and I will definitely hire her again! She is knowledgeable about dog behavior and her experience with dogs are outstanding !!! Her dogs are also very sweet and Gloria and Lucy are happy to be their friends!!!”
