“Shannon was fantastic! We had never used a pet sitter for our cats before and were going out of town for the weekend. Shannon was a great choice and we wouldn’t hesitate to book her again. She was great at sending pictures and texts, and our cats clearly enjoyed her visits. It was so nice to have our minds at ease while we were away.”
“Sarah was awesome! Took great care of our kitties, including administering an inhaler for one of our cats. Also was able to coax our very shy cat out of his shell. Definitely recommend her!”
“Brandon did a great job dropping by and giving our girls some love and attention. He sent plenty of pics and updates.”
“Veronica, watched me Dog Athena (Aka. Little Bear). Little bear, hasn't always been the best around other dogs, and never eats when I am away. Veronica knew this going in to dog sitting her. What I will say, is that V has the magic touch, not only did little bear get along with Veronica's dog, she ate all her food. When I picked her up three days later she was happy and healthy, and she was sad to leave Veronica. I highly recommend her as she is so good with my dog, who in fairness, is not the easiest to get along with.”
About: I've been taking care of dogs almost my whole life, including my own, friends' and neighbors'. If your dog requires something special or specific, I probably have experience with it. One of my dogs has completed the AKC Canine Good Citizen course so I have some experience with basic pet training. If you have a puppy, I can help reinforce whatever training you're implementing while on a walk. My two dogs are members of my family and I love them dearly. I will treat your dogs like my own. I'm much more flexible on the weekends and late afternoons/evenings for now. Possibly able to stop by during the morning day on occasion as my schedule opens up. I am able to accommodate your pets in any way that you may need for any drop in visits that I make to your home. Their safety and well-being is my top priority.
“Jamie was amazing with our Skyla. She walked her, played with her in the yard and brought her treats. She provided updates during each visit as well as lots of photos so we could see how Skyla was doing. We are very grateful for her and how well she cared for Skyla. Thank you!”
“Thanks for taking care of Pixel while I was out of town. I appreciated the the pictures and updates while I was gone. It’s great to know she is taken care of while I’m gone.”
“Beth is very kind and compassionate towards my cat Chester. Chester was initially hesitant towards Beth but warmed up quickly. I highly recommend Beth!”
“Sarah was so patient with our nervous pup on her visit and she had her calm, happy and playing by the time she left! We are so glad to have found Sarah!”
“Maggie (aka Anna) took the best care of our dog Kacy while we were on vacation! Kacy was recovering from an unexpected surgery and was in a cone for the entire time we were gone. Maggie went above and beyond and gave Kacy extra TLC. We hated to be away from her during her recovery, but knew she was in great hands. Thank you Maggie!”
“This was our 1st time using Rover and Natalie did a great job explaining the process. She even came by to meet us and Rio before her scheduled drop in and we loved all the pics and notes she sent us on the Rover Card. She was great at communicating and made us feel comfortable leaving Rio in her hands. We look forward to using her again and thank you, Natalie!”
“Racheal was extremely responsive, timely, and caring with our pups! She also kept us updated as to how they were doing! We felt very comfortable with them in her care and will definitely use her services again!”
About: Hi there! My name is Abby, a lover of all pets, young and old, big and small. I have taken care of dogs my whole life and I am currently a mom to a four-year-old Goldendoodle named Spencer. I have also worked at a doggy daycare facility where I monitored up to 20 dogs at a time, so a safe, happy dog is very important to me. I’m not currently working, though I am a part time student, but my full-time job would be caring for your pet! I am an experienced sitter and walker who you can trust to take amazing care of your pup. I take any and all opportunities to snuggle and go on fun adventures with dogs. I will love on your pup with everything I have. I am incredibly reliable, trustworthy, and flexible. Any and all instructions you leave for me will be followed with the utmost care to keep your little buddy happy! I am currently a part-time student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, so I will be taking classes and visiting dogs in my free time! I am available any day typically during the day as I have a dog of my own. I am very committed to creating a bond with my pup parents and being a part of their life. I’ve grown to meet so many people through dog sitting, walking, and my past job opportunity and I couldn’t be happier with what I do at the end of the day. I’m very experienced in animal care and would love the opportunity to grow a bond with you.,
“Elizabeth regularly dog sits my 3yr old Aussie mix, Rory. She is a true animal lover and takes great care of Rory. Rory is always excited to see Elizabeth because she knows she’s in for a fun few days. I would recommend Elizabeth for anyone looking for a dog sitter!!”
“Emily ensured our pet had adequate love and time with a human while we were out of town. So happy to have someone so understanding and willing to give my animal love.”
“Julie is amazing. I always have peace of mind when I have to be out of town because she takes care of Gunner as well as any dog owner would take care of their own dog”
“Marc has provided exceptional care for my senior cat, Ziggy (23), on numerous occassions. He is attentative and thorough in managing Ziggy's medication routine and daily subcutaneous fluids, and always ensures he is comfortable and well-cared for. Anyone looking for a reliable and compassionate individual for their furry loved ones should consider Marc for their pet care needs.”
“Madalyn is amazing. Came home from the weekend to a happy, calm dog. Exactly what I was looking for and got the reassurance though pics and videos that my best friend was in good hands - I highly recommend Madalyn and will definitely be requesting her services going forward”
About: I’ve been taking care of dogs and cats of every size, age, and temperament since I was a kid. I’ve been involved in the training of many puppies, and am capable of maintaining current routines & training for your pets! I’m very active, so I will have no problem meeting your dog’s activity needs, whether that be a long walk, lots of playtime, or a run at the park. I also give the best scritches! I currently work part-time in the mornings, so I’m available for late morning, afternoons, and evenings. I’m available for overnight care on the weekends, but with enough notice and prior discussion I can be available weekdays as well. I am committed to following the routines & rules you’ve set up for your pet. I am well educated in foods & plants that can be dangerous for pets, and I would never take yours somewhere I felt uncomfortable or wouldn’t take my own!
“We really appreciated sarah coming to take care of our cat and turtle for a week while we were out of town. She provided us with updates (and photos) every day! Can’t wait to have her help take care of our pets again in the future!!”
