About: All my life I have loved all types of animals and have wanted my life to always be around them. I genuinely make sure every animal is happy and love meeting every one! One of the dogs that will always hold a special place in my heart is my childhood dog- Baxter. He was a basset hound and lived till 15. His last few years I helped him with everything and was constantly by his side, and I gave him the best life. I’ve been around way too many to name different types of dogs and cats- I’ve pet sat for years and I currently work at a kennel that boards and I’ve worked there for about 8 months. There, I am constantly dealing with different types of dogs and have to deal to their specific needs and conditions. Sometimes we have blind dogs come in, super old dogs, dogs with illnesses and many different types. We have to know how to care to each specific dog, and I ensure that owners can put all their trust into me to make their pet the happiest they can be! I currently have 3 dogs and 1 cat! I have a yorkiepoo named Rocky and a shishon named Bella. I also have a husky mix named Lyla. She was rescued and we were informed she was abused and from a puppy mill. She also had babies at a very young age. We got her when she was one, and she was terrified of everything and everyone. Over time, I worked with her and got her to warm up to me and now she won’t leave me or my moms side ever. My cat, Poky, is currently 16 years old and living her best life! She sleeps with me all night and is the cuddliest cat ever. I am currently working part time at a kennel so I am available to work around my schedule! Just message me to find out a date! I will make sure to follow the pet instructions provided for me! I will also give the pet lots of love and attention and engage in playtime! And can’t forget cuddles and pets ❤️

Ava did such a great job with all 4 of my pets. She was able to help in short notice and was very detailed in her visit notes. I would recommend Ava to anyone and will definitely use her services again.

Was our first time having to leave our dogs behind. Theresa saved us! She took excellent care of both my 80+ lb dogs. Knowing it was our first time, she came over to meet us and the dogs. They got along within seconds! Theresa was very communicative throughout the visit. Will definitely be choosing Theresa again.

Bailey was amazing with my Mom’s two cats. She provided several pictures and thorough updates that kept anxiety away allowing being away so much easier!! We’re so happy to have found someone to watch after Salem & Sammie! Thank you, Bailey!!

Due to my flexible schedule, I am able to tend to your sweet pet's needs 24-7...They will never be left alone...I am ready! Due to my flexible work schedule, if i have your pets in my home, then i will concentrate on them 100%..Since i am a personal trainer i make my own schedule! So, your pets are stuck with me ..all day..all night...lol.. Like i said, i have 2 small, over-friendly pups..It's just me, and my adult son.. I will walk them as necessary, feed them as directed, pet, love, kisses, all of it! hahaha!

About: I have cared for all types of domesticated pets professionally since July 2018. I love what I do and never work a day in my life. The best part is assisting the owner by giving them peace of mind that their pet is well cared for and safe while having fun while they're away. My life revolves around the pets: pets I care for and my own four fur loves. I occasionally step out for an event or appointment, or to check on another pet. I never leave the pets alone for more than the allotted and appropriate time. I rotate the person by family pets, unless I have regulars who I absolutely know get along. Your pet will have a few hours out to roam the house and yard. Then I will put them in a decent sized room to rest, drink water, play with their toys, eat, etc. I then rotate the pets all day within the time I am awake. I feed and potty them on the same schedule as at home. They will get tons of attention and human interaction. I don't kennel unless owner would like.

About: I’ve taken care of dogs, both big and small, occasionally over the last few years, mainly overnight and weeklong. I also aided in potty training my boyfriend’s puppy in the winter. I’m currently unemployed but looking for a part time job. I am a full time student but my classes are completely online. I currently have plenty of free time and my schooling makes it very easy if you are looking for an overnight sitter. Unfortunately I cannot have anymore pets at my home but I would love to care for your pet at your home. Depending on your preferences and needs, I can do just about anything, including going on walks, giving medications, and other general care.

Tl;dr — You can trust Maria. My fiancé and I hadn’t left our Mini Aussie puppy and cat alone for more than 4 hours since getting them last year. We also have essentially zero family and friends in the area, so finding the right sitter for all our upcoming trips was crucial. Maria stood out as that person from the get go. She quickly responded to the care request and stayed for a good long while for the meet and greet. When it came to the day of, our puppy was distraught during the first of two visits for the day since he had never seen someone other than us come in the door. But Maria quickly calmed him and got him back to his playful self. She took care of both animals with reliability, kind care, and thoughtfulness. We will absolutely be calling upon her every time we need care for the fur babies!

Brooke watched our 3 Australian Shepherds for us whenever we went out of town. She is a wonderful pet sitter who took excellent care of our fur children! Brooke is dependable, honest, and our girls love her. I never had to worry a single moment when we were gone about the care they were receiving. (She once even had to deal with some medical issues & took care of the situation) When we come home when she stays our dogs are very content, healthy, & happy and our home is neat and tidy.

About: I’ve taken care of dogs and cats since I can remember. I have even taken care of hamsters, bunnies and fish. Now, I am living on a farm with dogs, cats, pigs and chickens. I currently work 30 hours a week, so I can fit in some time for animals. Looking for a side gig of something I am passionate about. I care for pets in clients homes by letting them out, playing with them, making sure they have food and water and if they’re allowed maybe even a treat or two. I am very good at following instructions.

About: I’ve had pets all my life not only limited to cats and dogs, but also skunks, raccoons, owls, etc! I was raised to love animals and at this time only have 2 cats in home. I’d love to host some pups too! I work full time at Mary Morgan so have time on the weekends, days off, after school hours (3:30 pm) or during winter, spring, summer breaks. We live in a two floor condo with room for a crate if needed. Next door is an open lot with a field, perfect for playing and walking.
