Abby was so great with our two large dogs! Abby house-sat and watched the boys for the entire day/evening, and I could tell when I got home that they'd had fun. She was very tolerant and nice about my quirks and many explanations. I believe she's very trustworthy and has a genuine love for animals. She sent several updates during the day (even a couple pics), which brightened my day and assured me the boys were in good hands. I would definitely have Abby back, and would consider longer stays in the future. Thanks, Abby!

Another great experience with Jessica. She’s great with my senior dog! Caring for my home and my few plants while away for almost a week. Came back to everything in tip top shape and a happy doggo. Consistent and reliable!

Isabelle has cared for my two dogs on multiple occasions of varying durations. Each time she is prompt, reliable, responsive, and goes above and beyond, even for our needy dogs. She has a lot of experience caring for pets, and we’re very glad she has been around for our travels. And, most importantly, our dogs love Isabelle! We would absolutely recommend Isabelle for other pet owners.

So happy I found Jess to watch my sweet Rosie girl while I was gone overnight! I will definitely be hiring her again. She was great to communicate with from setting up a meet and greet to giving me multiple updates while I was gone. In every picture update she sent, my dog looked happy and relaxed and that's all I can ask for. I highly recommend Jess to take care of your dog!

Mari B did a fantastic job taking care of our Jon Jon. She even made progress in teaching Jon Jon how to play fetch. And as a rescue dog Jon Jon has many difficulties that Madi handled beautifully. And she made sure to keep the rest of the house running smoothly as well. Can’t give Madi B. a high enough recommendation. If you want the dog/house sitting done to perfection, have Madi B. do it. I know we will.

I consider Javon responsive, courteous and flexible after using her services with our 2 dogs. Javon is a professional and had no problems administering medication. Upon our return the house was as expected and the dogs were in a good mood. I would recommend Javon.
