“He did a fantastic job with a very difficult rescue doberman. My dog is particular about humans and has some serious trust issues, but John-Michael easily worked with her and helped put me at ease. My dog did great with him and it was obvious she was well taken care of while I was away. He was very communicative, took good care my dog and my house. I will definitely hire him again.”
“Esther took great care of my very old dog, gave his meds and put up with his very early schedule, and feed my 4 kitties too❤️I recommend her to everyone 🎉”
About: Anyone can say they love dogs. Dogs are just so easy to love. But not everyone an say that they can give dogs the love and care that they deserve. What sets me apart from other pet sitters is my attention to detail. About 5 years ago, my dog Toto developed cataracts in his eyes and needed surgery so retain his sight. After his eye surgery, he needed several different eye drops every day to maintain his vision and keep his eyes healthy. For 5 years, I have made sure that his eyes received the medication they needed so that he can remain the spunky, lazy, happy dog that he is. I have also often taken care of my previous neighbor's elderly dog who also needed regular, scheduled medication. Without fail, he received his medication on time, even if I did have to wrap them up in a treat. If you want peace of mind when you have to leave your furry friends for a while, I'll provide the care that you need and they deserve! I am currently working full time (8am-5pm) but I can make short visits in between my work hours if needed. I am also available after 5pm on days that I am needed. I am always willing to tailor my services based on what your needs are. Whether you pet is a finicky eater, a shy one in the bathroom, or just needs regular medication, I can make sure your pet's quirks are well taken care of so that you don't have to worry while you are gone. I also provide regular photo updates along with my services so that you can be assured that your furry friends are happy, healthy, and thriving!

About: I have had experience at an animal daycare where pets boarded overnight. I've worked with animals from pugs to pitbulls! I also own two cats. I work overnight shifts from 11:30PM-8:30AM on weekdays and 9:30PM-6:30AM on weekends. During those hours, animals can sleep inside, I have an EBO camera to watch them during the night. They should be asleep during these hours. I don’t work during the daytime so I can keep an eye on any fur babies I’m sitting. Most time will be spent outdoors if the weather is nice. There’s also multiple dog parks in the area that I can drive to. In a clients home, I'm open to any rules and regulations implemented by the client. I like to spend as much time outside with pets as possible. If no outdoor space, I'm okay with staying inside. I'm also open to traveling to nearby parks for playtime and potty time. In my house, again, I like to spend as much time with the pets outside as possible. My neighborhood is very pet friendly and there are several dog parks and other parks nearby. My apartment has an open yard if owner doesn't want pet to travel far. If owner requires only indoor care, I have potty pads and treats on hand. I do own two cats that will be kept away from non cat-friendly animals. CAN PROVIDE UPDATES IN THE FORM OF PICTURES, VIDEOS, AND TEXTS IF REQUESTED! I love to keep owners up to date on their pets.
“Kharlee is fantastic! Kharlee dogsat for my 3 while I was gone on a trip and stayed with them at my home. This was my first time using a dog sitter and It was exactly what I was looking for - and I just came home to 3 very happy and safe puppers. Kharlee was awesome with communication and sending pictures and updates. She also made a point to do multiple meet and greets with my pups to make sure they would be comfortable with her. I will 100% be using Kharlee again and am stoked to have found someone my dogs are so happy with! :)”
About: From the time I was born there has always been a animal in the house. I have own or care for some really Exotic animals. From a Von Derk Decken Hornbill to a pony. I want to be that pet sitter who will send you pictures or answer your questions at really random hours. If your going on a trip on the other side of the world. I want to be the person who doesn't have open and closing hours. I believe animals should wear Identification at all times when in a new place. That leachs should be on before door are ever unlocked. Cats in carries before doors are unlocked. I have two dogs of my own and I love taking them with me and will plane trips around them going but some times they just can't go. I hate asking family or friends to watch them because I don't think anyone is as over bearing as me and will not watch them like I do lol. So I want to be that person for other people too. So I work 12 hour shifts on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday from 5pm to 5:30am. I am OK with taking pets those days but I just need people to know at night I'll have to put them up. In my house my dogs are played and watched around the clock. We work on simple task and training. Seen my basset hound is still young we are working on potty training. We go to the vet over the smallest things because I am that crazy dog mom lol. Mostly we play and play and play. At other people houses we follow their rules to a T. If pets need to be brushed then we brush. If pets need boil water then filter throw a tear bag then we do it. I want to do it how you do it so it doesn't stress them. So when you come home you animal is safe and happy and healthy.
“Jenna is a wonderful person and I trust her implicitly with my dogs and my home. She took care to get to know my dogs, respected their boundaries, but they loved her immediately. I went on vacation without a care because I knew she would make sure they were safe and snuggled. She left my house just as she had found it. I recommend Jenna to pet sit because she will care for your pets just the way you do.”

About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“Atlas was amazing for our dogs! He took great care of them and was an excellent communicator with us. Highly recommend!”
“Eva has always been great with animals, especially mine. I have always I trusted her to babysit my cat and dogs in the past. She has always kept me updated which has always given me a sense of peace knowing my animals are safe. Eva’s has always been the first people that comes to mind when I need assistance with little care or even care for days when I’ve gone out of town.”

About: I grew up rescuing strays and fostering many pets of all sizes. I know they are more than just your pets they are your family. I work part time at a retail store but am very flexible schedule to help watch your fur babies while you are away from home. I promise they will get the best care possible and will get plenty of attention and send you updates on them if you would like.
About: I’ve taken care of all kinds of animals from dogs to rabbits. I have been a huge animal lover since I was a kid. I had a friend once joke and say that my pets had better health insurance than her because of how much I loved and cared for my pets. Clients, friends and family always ask me first if I can take care of their pets when they are gone. I am always reliable and love their pets as my own. I will let your dogs out for potty breaks in between my day at work. They will get unconditional love and attention. My best friend is my pug. My fur babies are my children and will treat your pet the same way. I’m self employed running my own business that has busy days and slow days. If I am responsible for the care of someone’s animals I will make sure to schedule around their care. Potty breaks, food and attention will be considered first. I am a very easy going and responsible person. I have a fenced yard and a doggy door. My pug is the biggest social butterfly and welcomes anyone who comes in our home including cats. She was raised with cats so she loves them like they are her people. Haha She loves to have new doggy friends too. I spoil her like crazy so your pet will be given the same attention and care. I take their safety very seriously. If you have rules for your pet in your home I will abide by those rules.
