Monica was fabulous ! My dogs warmed up to her very quickly. From an owner side, i was very comfortable because Monica left detailed notes and pictures for each drop in visit.

Tanya was extremely attentive to our cats while we were gone and very attuned to their body language and (obviously) non-verbal communication. She was also great at communicating with us. Couldn’t recommend a better caretaker - would gladly hire her again!

Jenevieve treated our dog like her own. We couldn’t be more grateful! We were able to relax on vacation knowing our fur baby was well taken care of. We definitely recommend Jenevieve!

Lisa, was great with my three cats. I have a almost 15 yr old male cat that has been very skittish all his life. Most pet sitters have never even gotten him out to eat his can food but Lisa not only got him out to eat but also got his medicine on his ears that he has to have twice a day every day for hypothyroidism. Knowing that he was taken care while my husband and I were out of town attending our daughters wedding was a hugh blessing. Thanks again Lisa.

My dogs and cat were in such good hands. Highly recommend him. Will use again and again. Was in another country and he was so patient with my payment issue. I didn’t have to worry even at 3700 miles away.

Jaden loves animals and had had his own dog for 14 years, he cared for him very deeply. His responsibilities have included feeding, exercising, administering medications and providing companionship. He bonds well with animals and has great communication skills. I would recommend Jaden as a pet caregiver to anyone seeking a responsible, knowledgeable and compassionate individual to look after their beloved pets.

About: I have lived with dogs 20+ years of my life. My partner, Anthony, and I currently have 2 dogs of our own who are both rescues. Arthur is our 6 year old playful, loving lab mix and Taz is our 4 month old sassy pit mix puppy! We love caring for pets and are excited to spread the love to more doggy friends! You can count on us to be reliable, respectful, engaged, and loving to your pets. We will ensure that they get exercise and the love they need while under our care. We will make sure the environment is safe for all pets and make sure your pet has access to food and water at all times. We work from home full time and will make sure your pet has the necessary potty breaks they need and will not be left in a kennel all day long. We love dogs and are excited to provide a safe + comfortable place for your pet so you can enjoy your time away from home knowing your dog(s) is/are in good hands. Anthony and I work from home, which makes pet care fit very easily into our daily and weekly routine. We have 2 dogs of our own and we never leave them home alone longer than 4 hours. We have a partially fenced in yard. The yard is safe and a great size to give your pet ample space to run around and exercise.
