About: I have been pet-sitting for friends and neighbors for a few years, so I have experience with young and old cats and dogs! I also have experience with housesitting and overnight stays for people with dogs as well. Growing up, we had two cats and a few dogs, so I'm comfortable working with a variety of pets with different needs and personalities! I'm currently done with work for the season, so I have a pretty open schedule and am available for drop-in visits, walks, or housesitting needs. I'll make sure your pet is happy, comfortable, and taken care of! I love long walks, and I always make sure they get the exercise, playtime, and attention that they need.
“Court has been great with our rescue dog who has a lot of fear and trust issues. Court has been patient with Sadie and earned her trust. Court has been communicative and all around awesome!”
“Really kind and communicative! Iris took good care of my dog while I was away -- I think she really liked having someone new pay attention to her, haha. Very flexible with scheduling and responded quickly when I needed help with walks/check-ins on fairly short notice; I'm very thankful Iris was willing to work with me! ^^”
About: 5 years ago my family had gotten a puppy (jack Russell, beagle, terroir, Pitt bull mix). My puppy is a big baby, and is scared of everything. From flies to the wind. But he also can be a bit mean and over protective about his belongings. I was able to find ways around him being overly protective about his things. I was the main person to get up early to take him out in the mornings, throughout the day, and at night. We then a year later got his sister from a different litter from the same mom and dad. She is the complete opposite. She is a loving dog. She always wants to cuddle and loves to play and have all the attention to her. Since I was little I’ve always loved dogs. I love playing with them and walking with them. I’m a full time nanny but have a lot of free time on my hands while the kids are at school and their activities. I’m looking for some occasional work and maybe part time opportunities. I would always make sure the pet has food and water. Make sure the environment around them is safe. And make sure to attend their needs in any way that is needed.
“River is my go-to person for cat care! They have a lovely and gentle presence, are a joy to be around, and are attentive and caring with my two cats, Ripley and Boycat. Because of medical issues, my cats eat separate food with a somewhat involved preparation process. River has been amazing at working with their/my needs and keeping them healthy while I'm away. The cats are often suspicious of newcomers, but they took to River immediately! It means so much to be able to leave town and trust that my kitties are being well-taken care of. Can't recommend River enough!”
“Sawyer does great walking Eli. He just adores her. She’s very professional and great about checking in and sending pics!! Thank you Sawyer for taking care of my baby!!!!”
“Emily dogsat for my brother's 2 golden retrievers and they couldn't have been happier. She's very sweet and attentive. She's who they use every time now <3”
“I've never seen anyone so attached to an animal as Emma was to her friends Bernese Mountain Dog. Nearly half her size she absolutely adored the thing, took him on walks, watched him during the day and was at his beck and call 24/7 when the pup would have sleepovers. Hire Emma!”
“Danielle is great. The dogs love her upbeat walks! She brings treats and laughs at their antics. All goes well every time! Thank you Danielle for everything! Mary”
About: I’ve had large dogs my whole life, 4 German shepherds as a kid and 2 Australian shepherds as an adult, and also several cats over the years. I have experience in dog grooming and veterinary assisting. I love animals and would love to help out with yours! I currently work Monday through Thursday so Fridays I am available for walks, drop ins and nail trimming or just a visit to break up the day for your pet while you’re gone. I have 3.5 acres of mowed lawn for my pups to run and play, and live their best life. I will do my best to ensure your animals are well cared for and exercised to keep them happy and content while you’re away.
“Patricia is a warm and conscientious sitter who I would not hesitate to recommend. Having never used a pet sitting app, I was nervous about hiring someone I didn’t know. Patricia very kindly offered to come visit before the booking, where Tig fell in love with her on sight. When I was out, she sent a photo update. Tig had the biggest smile on her face.”
“Sarah is phenomenal at taking care of my dog when I'm at work. During the heatwave she checked in with me to make sure it was OK to take her out in the heat. 10/10 would recommend Sarah to walk your dog!”
About: Have owned dogs for over 20 years, pet sit for friends, family, and neighbors. I am over cautious and protective when it comes to animals, I'm also active so love walking dogs, throwing a ball for them, or taking them to our local lake for a swim. I have tons of patience for shy dogs, I have dealt with rescue dogs and know when to get close or not to an animal. I have never had an incident where I have had a dog become aggressive with me. I have taken my own dog to obedience school a few times and learned a few key trips for working with difficult dogs or puppies. I have taken care of puppies within the past three years and am comfortable with the extra care they require. I have a solid connection with our local vet and emergency animal hospital and am able to handle dogs who need shots or medications administered. I work from home and have several pets already needing care. Bathroom breaks, walks, ball throwing, catnip time, all of it already happens in my home. We have several pet fences within our home and a puppy proof first floor. If a pet is okay of leash then we walk them around our 4 acres throwing a ball or whatever the pet likes. If a pet is not okay off leash, then we just walk them on a leash on our land every 1.5 or 2 hours or as needed. Water bowls are everywhere, no chemicals are on site within reach of curious puppies, and no cars move very quickly on our driveway and everyone who does arrive at our home knows we have several pets and need to slow down. We have owned dogs for over 25 years and have never had any of our pets get injured.

“Rosalie is the most caring and responsible pet care helper. She is my first choice when we go away because she is so committed. I never have to worry when she stays with our animals -she is super communicative and on top of all the details. She is also amazing at administering meds for our older dogs I couldn't recommend her enough!”
