“Chelsea has been my go-to dog walker for a few months. Not only does she gave fantastic consistent availability, but she is incredibly professional in her interactions with myself and my pup. When my pup had surgery this week, Chelsea followed my instructions to a T, even if it made the visits a little more difficult and was so communicative as to how my girl was doing at home. I felt so much better knowing she is so well taken care of with Chelsea!”
“A really nice, sweet and caring young lady. She is very responsible and you can trust her with your little critters. Your dogs, cats, birds, snakes, etc. will love her!”
“We appreciate Kathleen being available on the holiday so we could spend time visiting family and not have to worry about Archie :-) she was on time and sent lots of pics and videos. Thanks Kathleen! Archie looks forward to seeing you on nye.”
“Liz was great with my dogs. My younger one is extremely slow to warm up to strangers and Liz handled her perfectly with patience and treats. I would definitely use her again!”
About: I grew up with cats and started walking dogs ~23 years ago in elementary school after my family got a dog. Since middle school I have boarded and house sat for dogs as well as some check-ins for cats, hamsters, birds, turtles and fish. I’m most comfortable working with dogs and have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages as well as reactive dogs. While I was taught differently growing up, I have been using solely positive reinforcement training for around 8 years. While I am not a trainer I have studied under professional trainers and try to stay up to date on current training techniques I currently take care of my father and have a flexible schedule. Possible for me to adjust depending on the needs of the client but I typically walk my dogs when the sun is out adjusting for sun rise/set during the year. As an owner of a high energy breed, I understand the importance of still getting a good walk in even when the weather is horrible In my home my pets can free roam and are allowed on the furniture and bed. In client’s home I respect their rules. I do not accept clients without a meet and greet. I live 2 blocks from Allegheny Commons Park. I frequently walk there and the river trail as well. I use the Allegheny Common’s dog park as well but as it’s not fenced in I have no intentions of taking client’s dogs there
“Julie has been awesome with my pup for drop in visits! She’s responsible, communicative and follows instructions. She’s taken great care of him so far, will rebook in the future!”
“Allison was so amazing with our kitties! We couldn't have asked for anything more! She stopped in twice a day like we asked and spent lots of time with our boys. She even scooped the litter boxes which we didn't expect her to do! We highly recommend Allison for all your kitty needs :)”
“Linnea is the real deal! She did drop in visits for our almost two year old pittie Lucy and I could not have asked for a more capable and professional person for the job. An added bonus is that she loves to teach dogs new commands in addition to caring for them and showing them love. Linnea was spectacular and a high recommend!”
“Richard did an incredible job. Showed up for daily visits with our pets and sent photos and report cards on every visit. Would definitely use again and recommend his services.”
“Barrett is the most attentive and empathetic dog-sitter/walker I have ever met. He listens to specific directions and preferences regarding your pet and tries to understand and embrace the dog's individual personality. He is patient, kinds, and a loving dog-owner himself, and it shows in all his interactions with animals, As someone who is hesitant to leave his dog with anybody, I have the utmost confidence in Barrett and am relieved to not be worrying about my pup while I'm away.”
“We’ve used Kaysie in the past for one dog. Recently used for my two dogs. No issues ever! And great communication and gets back to me quickly.”
About: I’ve dog-sat for multiple family members, neighbors, and friends. I also have two cats at home. I currently have more availability and would love to help others in my community care for their fur-babies. I am a student. My schedule differs depending on my rotations, but I will always keep you informed. I often have days, nights, and weekends available. I walk dogs while leashed and only take them to dog-parks if told to by their families. Your cats and dogs are safe with me.
“Caitlyn has been letting my dog out for over a year while I am at work. She always makes sure to take him to his favorite spots and spends extra time playing with him before leaving.”
“Another five star Rover.com. Provided great care and play with Penny.”
“Best dog walker I know!! Always on time, usually is packing treats, and the dog always comes back happy. 10/10 and if this was uber, 5 STARS!!”
“Jay was so incredibly kind and caring towards our kitty baby. We will absolutely utilize their services again and I cannot say enough nice things. Truly a relief to find someone so caring and attentive.”
About: I've always loved animals. I've had a dog and a cat pretty much all my life, I would consider myself a pet mom. I've potty trained and taught them tricks. I'm very active with them as well, I play fetch and toss around chew toys. I am a freelancer, so I get to make my own schedule, so I have time to do pet care. I typically schedule most of my things in the morning, so during the day and evenings I am available. I can come to your home to take care of your buddy, and will help to make sure that they are in the safe environment.
“Christy did an amazing job. She has great communication skills and sent many photos of my cat when she stopped by. I came home to a clean house and a happy cat. I would absolutely work with her again.”
“Anna was great. She took good care of our cats and spent plenty of time with them, going above and beyond what we expected. She also provided a ton of pics and info in her updates. We’d be happy to have Anna come back again on our next trip.”
“Rohail was great. We met before the drop in and he was very sweet, he gave my pup lots of love. Sent a bunch of cute pictures and left a detailed rover report card for the drop in visit. Will definitely be booking again in the future”
