“I had Paola look after my dog for two weeks while I was overseas - walking him in mornings and evenings as well as house sitting. My dog is not the easiest to be accustomed to due to his size and his breed - it's also why we try to maintain a strict routine. Be it her thoroughness in intaking instructions and application, Paola was communicative, responsive, and went out of her way to ensure my dog was well looked after (including topping up his supply of wet food when we ran out until I returned). Seeing my dog become comfortable, calm and trusting around her is a testament of her ability and has solidified her place as one of his favourite sitters.This was my first experience with Paola and I couldn't recommend her enough!”
“It is with pleasure that I write a letter of recommendation for Sarah-Mae. Sarah-Mae has cared for my pets and home while I have been away from my home. She was very thoughtful and trustworthy and loyal and caring person. While caring for our pets, she always arrived on time, was willing to adjust times and visits when it was necessary. Sarah-Mae really enjoys caring for animals and meets their needs. She is a very calm and caring person. My animals, 1 dog, really like her and did so well under her care. I fully recommend Sarah-Mae and she did such a fine job. Please feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.”
“Kathleen walked our two dogs throughout this past week, one of which is a shy rescue puppy. She was so calm and gentle with them and made sure they got out and had a great time midday. We loved the communication and updates and pictures and can’t say enough great things about our experience this week. Thank you Kathleen, I know the girls look forward to more adventures with you!”
“I had the pleasure of having Paige as my neighbour in Toronto for many years, and she has been an exceptional pet caregiver for my dog, Zeus. Paige's passion for animals is truly remarkable. Despite not having pets of her own, she shows Zeus love and attention whenever I need her to look after him, whether for the day or if I am away for a few weeks on vacation. Paige is not just responsible and reliable; she treats Zeus like her own, ensuring he gets plenty of exercise and affection. I can always trust Paige to provide the best care for Zeus, and I highly recommend her to anyone needing a pet sitter.”
“Sydney G. Loves dogs and cats. She has worked at a grooming and boarding business in Alberta since she was 14 years of age. She has always been punctual, kind and nurturing towards animals. She also has animal first aid and knows some massage therapy.Sydney is currently in Ottawa studying science to aspire to be a Veterinarian. I feel she misses her furry clients and would love to connect with your animals. She is a wonderful honest young woman. Our dog Willow misses her out here in Alberta. Lesley”
“Ginny is such a caring and attentive caregiver to my dog and cat. She keeps me in the loop and sends lots of pictures. I felt at ease knowing that my animals are in her care. I would highly recommend her as a care giver of felines and k9s.”
“Alyssa came one day to walk my dog because I was working late that day. We have met few days before and she’s very nice and caring person. When she came to my house, my dog had made a mess and she took it upon herself to clean it up for me and took the dog for an hour walk. I would highly recommend Alyssa and she will be coming once a week to walk my dog”
“Super service, very reliable, you can see how much they will love and care for your pet as soon as they enter your house. Will definitely book with them again”
“Beth took the time to come meet our chocolate lab a few days prior to the booking and it was a great pleasure to meet her. On the day of the booked walk, Beth was on time, walked over 1km and confirmed that they both enjoyed each other’s company in the Rover Card. We will definitely rebook with Beth! :)”
“Julia looked after our Bernese Mountain dog for several weeks while we were on vacation. Our dog needs daily medication, lots of affection, regular walks, and can’t be left alone for long periods. Julia was totally committed to providing everything our dog needs, staying in touch and providing updates. Our dog was happy and well in her care. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a pet sitter.”
“I have always been really happy with the service Yiwen provides. Hugo is very happy too!”
About: I am a healthcare professional with experience in crisis and emergency situations. I have only recently moved to a situation where I am able to have animals around, but I previously have taken care of dogs for my mother and grandparents as required. I love animals and enjoy having the company. My healthcare experience also means I'm not scared of bodily fluids - if I can change an adult's diaper, I can deal with your toilet training puppy without issue ! (For the pictures, only the tabby is mine. The others are all animals I have babysat at some point - Golden is my mom's, Samoyed is my grandparents', black cat is a friend's, white spot cat is from previous professional experience.) I work part time, mostly evenings. My shifts are somewhat flexible, and I have good contacts for shift trading if it becomes necessary for me. I have a small cat who, while not a huge fan of dogs, has figured out that dogs can't climb her cat tree or fit in some of her favourite hiding spots, so she just turtles if a dog is making her nervous. I live right next to a dog park, which has a non-dog park section as well if you are not a fan of dog parks. My apartment is small, and I keep it well stocked with toys, treats, puzzles, and other ways to keep animals happy and stimulated.
“Nicole is so great!! You can just tell how much she cares and loves all animals. She’s calm, trustworthy, and attentive. Nicole provides great updates and our boy is always so excited to see her! Highly recommend! 🙂”
“Andrea was really great! Communication was very clear and timely and lots of updates from the walk. Fen had such a great time!!”
“Julia is a wonderful cat mom and grew up in a cat and dog owning family. She will take great care of your pet(s) and love them like her own. She understands how it feels to leave pets at home when you have to be away and will keep you posted with photos and messages so you can relax and not worry. She is very reliable and responsible and you will be lucky to have found her.”
“Melanie has been dog sitting for me for as long as I can recall. Diesel is always so thrilled when we pull up to her place and runs up to her as soon as I open the car door to let him out. She is extremely accommodating with her time, is full of love and respect for all beings, and goes above and her forthright communication is very much appreciated. I will continue to trust in Melanie with Diesel for years to come. You need look no further; She’s the only sitter you need. 5+ stars! Thank you Melanie :)”
“Rena is a sweetheart who is very experienced with dogs and is knowledgeable. My dog is huge and can also be a brat at times; Rena knew exactly how to handle him. Rena has helped me walk my dog several times when I am working long hours. She has taken a load of stress off my chest. Rena is trustworthy and she communicates promptly. My dog, Walther, and I are so Lucky to have met Rena! We think you are GREAT and we thank you so much! I highly highly recommend Rena :)”
“I can't say enough wonderful things about Michaela. They are a true gem when it comes to caring for our furry family members. From the moment we met, their passion and dedication to animals were evident. Our pets adore them, and that peace of mind is priceless. Whether it's feeding, walking, or providing companionship, Michaela goes above and beyond. They are reliable, trustworthy, and always communicate updates, which eases our worries while we're away. We can't imagine leaving our pets with anyone else. Michaela is not just a pet sitter; they're a part of our extended family. Highly recommend!”
“Natalie has consistently provided thoughtful care for my cat and dog. She is a naturally caring and responsible person who I feel more than comfortable entrusting with my pets. Her extensive experience as a pet owner comes across in the quality of her care, and I highly recommend her for dog walking! Overall Natalie was very friendly and I will be booking with her again!”
