“Callie was awesome for drop-in visits. She provided pictures and great notes and updates and was very responsive to messages and request modifications. I’m definitely hoping to have her watch my pups again!”

“Fiorela has always had so many dogs in her lifetime. She adores and takes so much care of her dogs. She is very responsible when it comes to dog sitting. I’ve left my dogs with her to dog sit whenever I’m going out of town. I Can definitely count on her, and I know my dogs will be in good hands.”
About: I am a true advocate for our four legged babies because they don’t have a voice. So I will go above and beyond for your furry baby. I cared for an older dog that was severely injured from being hit by a car, and needed special care including administration of medication, to experiencing my Roxi going through pregnancy and birth of 5 puppies and the joy raising a puppy which was one of the puppies and his name is Ace. You tell me what you want, and I will follow your expectations. If you have small dogs, Im the perfect fit for you. Dont take your et to these other sitters that provide large backyard, own big dogs themselves and risk bringing in fleas, ticks and possibly parvo from digging and playing outside.i only host 2 dogs a day/night and if you have a special request, you can have a private booking where no other dogs are being cared for during your pet’s stay, so you feel at peace while you are away. Your furry baby will stay inside with me, and be able to roam freely around the house, i have doggy steps to all furniture, including the bed! I have monitors that allow me to monitor your pet at all times 24/7. My home is clean, up to date with pest control, my pets are current on vaccines including influenza and covid . Im willing to accommodate for you to enjoy your time away from your pet. This includes you coming FROM out of town to events such as funerals, weddings, family gatherings where there might be other not-so-friendly pets. Provide your yourself and your pet peace of mind and a safe place to stay for these types of events. Even if its just a few hours to go out with friends. Don’t leave them home alone. They can come play with us! Very friendly, love to play. Although i have my prefences listed, there are exceptions do don’t hesitate to contact me and let’s talk. Rescue pets and puppies are welcomed. I ask that you bring their favorite toy, the bed they sleep in and please please bring the food they normally eat. They most likely will experience separation anxiety which possibly can cause upset stomach and diarrhea which goes away after 72 hours, so changing the food they eat during their stay will worsen it. All pets eat during meal time and separate locations throughout the house until they are finished. At any time, if something occurs that I feel as a pet owner I would want to know right away about it, I do not hesitate to contact you so that you are aware of the situation. Some examples: your pet jumped off the sofa and landed on their jaw, your pet started vomiting, your pet is showing symptoms of distress, your pet was play fighting with another pet and ended up with a laceration on its skin, are some examples that could happen during your pets stay here. I take it very serious when your pet’s behavior has changed suddenly. None of these have taken place while under my care, But understand, I don’t hesitate to contact you Note: Puppy rates override additional pet rates And if your pet isn't potty trained, please bring pee pads. Notify me if your four legged friend is not fully potty trained. It doesn’t change anything. I just want to be prepared. Im certified at administering CPR to your pet and currently taking courses to be a certified boarder with the American Kennel Club. My pets are my kids and i will treat yours the same way. Loving, cuddling, back massaging, tummy rubbing are all free here!!!🐾🥰❤️🐕🦺🦮🐩🐕🐈🐈⬛🏼 From September to December and January to June, I board and doggie daycare on weekends and ALL HOLIDAYS. I’m flexible on the drop off/pickup time but understand if its after the time of drop off, it will be considered at the extended rate for going pass that time. For example, if you dropped your furry baby off at 3 PM on Friday and you don’t pick your pet up until 8 PM on Sunday you will get charged an extended rate for the time from 3- 8 pm. If you need to modify any thing regarding the times, please notify me at the time of the booking so that we are on the same page and I can make accommodations to meet your needs. Thank you. Just need 48 hour. notice. Beginning August 14th I'm only available after 3:30 pm daily for drop ins, walks, Fridays after 3:30-sundays at 7pm. and weekends, . Im willing to fit in drop ins, dog walks anytime. Boarding i prefer in my home due to my own friendly dogs i care for. My goal in caring for your pet is to provide an environment that is conducive to their comfort and happiness while you’re away. Your rules will be followed, whether it be in your home or in my home. I live alone and, therefore, my focus and attention is all on your pet. I only care for dogs in my home. I provide plenty of photos and videos for you throughout their stay, i can FaceTime for you to interact with them where you can also talk to your pet for reassurance when your dog is to be cared by me in My Home. Currently Kern county dog parks are having an increase number of parvo cases, so i will not walk the Dogs there. I have a quiet, mature, cul-de-sac that I live in and provide daily walks up and down my street and they do not interact with any other animals. Potty breaks are provided using my medium size. backyard where they can run around i and stretch their legs, but then we come back in and do your activities inside my I, believe in positive reinforcement.

About: Hello! I don’t have extensive pet care experience unfortunately but we all start somewhere! I do want to mention some things that I believe can make you trust in me! 1. I care for the stray cats in my neighborhood! I love those like they’re my own pets. I always bring them food and sit with them. They either see me as a food source or… really have taken a liking to me (I hope it’s this one ahah) because when I drive up to my house, they come up! Adorable cats !! 2. I have pet sitted once in the past! It was 3 doodle dogs who are known to be quite clingy and crazy! It was an experience I will say but we all had lots of fun !! I am a college student here in town so that is always my concern when scheduling! I will be available all Fri-Sun though! For Mon&Wed anything after 3pm is ideal. And Tuesdays and Thursdays are consumed by classes! Pet safety is my number one concern! I will keep an eye out on them the entire time I am there. On walks, if anything were to happen, I assure you, your pet is number one for safety concerns! You can trust me (:

“I have known Megan for many years now and she has been great with taking care of my dogs when I go out of town or on family vacations. She is very loving towards animals and very responsible! Your pet will be in great care with Megan! :D”
About: I've taken care of and loved animals since I was 7 years old.Ive had many different pets including hamsters , cats , dogs and I've also owned a bird. I've cared for my pets when they've gotten sick and also have groomed them myself (bathing , trimming nails , administering medications ,(e.t.c) . I currently work part time and would love a side hustle I'm passionate about. Which is caring for pets because animals are my most favorite thing in this world. It would also help me pay for school fees and extra groceries and it's something to do on my off days. I'm usually available mostly on week days. I'm comfortable caring for pets both in my own home and the clients home. Usually whatever the client feels is the most comfortable for them

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!

“This was my first time using the app I was extremely anxious about leaving flowers with a sitter!! But Melanie was extremely sweet and kept me updated. Flower is an energetic pup and high maintenance. Melanie took her to several different places, played with her, and took her on walks as well as sent me lots of pictures. Melanie did pick up Flower and Flower immediately liked her, which is really rare. I honestly can say she is an amazing sitter and will take care of your pup like it’s her own!!”
