“Miliana took great care of our cat while we were away. She has a reassuring presence and we were confident that their time together would go smoothly. I highly recommend Miliana and look forward to working with her in the future.”
“Olivia has always been a loving pet caretaker. Growing up, she took such sweet care of her family beagle and always cherished the time she spent taking the dog on walks & showering the dog with love. She is responsible and kind.”
“Will was awesome. Kept us up to date with how our cats were doing every day, cleaned up a mess he found, and sent awesome (usually hilarious) photos. We can tell from the photos how comfortable the cats were with him. Will was great and looking forward to booking him again in the future!”
“Maria took great care of Chester and Porter while we were out of town. She provided us with lots of nice updates and photos. We've already recommended her to a friend and would definitely book again in the future!”
“Acadia was so great with my rescue pup who can be very fearful of strangers! I needed a somewhat last minute drop in but had never left my dog with anyone since adopting him, so I was really worried about hiring someone without weeks of introductions beforehand, but Acadia listened to all my concerns and the fact that my dog was able to remain calm with her is a sign she's doing everything right for a nervous dog! She kept me updated throughout the entire visit and was mindful of his comfort levels the entire time! Will definitely rebook in the future!”
“Tom was available on short notice and went above and beyond to care for my dog Luna while she is recovering from an ACL injury! Will definitely be reaching out to him again for future needs.”
“Thank you so much for taking such amazing care of my fur babies! I’d never left them alone for this long and it was so nice to get your updates and pics daily. I knew you’d be perfect when you came for the walk through and took notes, it shows great dedication and accountability. The fur babies loved having your visits, and not just because you were giving them food. ?”
About: Experienced pet lover with a lifelong experience with animals, including multiple dogs, cats, and even a monkey. Trusted by friends and family to care for their pets when needed. Eager to extend that love and responsibility to provide exceptional dog sitting and walking services. As a Suffolk University student based in downtown Boston, my class schedule provides me with flexibility and availability for this position. I have one class on Mondays, three on Tuesdays, two on Wednesdays, and three on Thursdays, often with 2 hour breaks in between, ensuring that I can work even in between When caring for pets in my own home or a clients home, I prioritize their comfort and well-being. In my home, I ensure a safe and pet-friendly environment, offering plenty of exercise, playtime, and regular feeding. In the client's home, I follow their specific care instructions diligently, maintaining routines and providing companionship, exercise, and affection. I adapt my approach to the unique needs of each pet, whether it's for dog sitting, cat care, or other services, ensuring they feel loved and secure during their time with me.
“Pleased to be Rojan's first reviewer! Rojan stood out as someone who knew cats well, which can be tough to find on a dog-oriented service like Rover. By all indications, she took great care of my 19 year old cat while I was away. She's a great communicator, asked the right questions, and was patient with me when we realized how much was missing from the documentation I left her with. I look forward to her help with an upcoming vacation.”
About: I have been a caretaker of dogs and cats my whole life with family pets, and have been a go to sitter for family and friends the last decade. I have experience with dogs of all ages and medical needs (administering medications, vet appointments etc.). I am happy to accommodate any animals needs and ensure to treat them just like their own family. I work in downtown Boston and live nearby so I am available in the evenings and weekends. I also work in a hybrid office, so I can be flexible during the days if needed! Depending on each dogs needs I am happy to mirror their routine as closely as possible with walks, trips to the dog park and feeding schedules. I am unable to accommodate boarding at this time but am willing to do in home sitting, walking and check ins based on what the pet owner feels is best!
“I highly recommend Briana as a pet sitter. She was very attentive to my sweet old girl. Brushings and gentle walks outside we're perfect. I can't thank her enough.”
About: I grew up with three dogs that I lovingly cared for, and during my undergrad at Berkeley, I provided boarding and walking services for dogs in the community.

I have a highly flexible, work from home schedule which allows me to provide dedicated care and attention to your pup. I’m available 7 days a week with ability to walk your dog(s) at any needed frequency. I live in the West End Apartments, a very dog friendly community with access to a dog park and bathing station.

“Second time using Ryan to watch my cat and will definitely continue the relationship. Super easy to work with and very reliable. Thanks again Ryan!”
“Lindsay has cared for my mini goldendoodle since she was 4 months old! She's stayed at my house while away, walked her when I had work and is such a great dog person. Winnie is now a year and 3 months and goes wild whenever she see's Lindsay. I'm constantly getting photo updates to know she's loved and well-cared for. Thank you!”
“Michelle is great with pets. She is able to match the energy of my dog while also being patient with my cat. I have had her house sit for me and also do dog walking. She sends lots of pictures as updates when she watches my pets and texts me updates about their behavior. Michelle is a pleasure to be around and I would trust her to watch my pets again any day!”
“My husband and I left town for about 8 days and left our independent little cat in Daniela’s hands for an everyday drop in- best money we ever spent. Daniela came by a couple days prior to get the lay of the land and meet our cat, Dexter, and to our surprise he actually paid her attention. He’s a very independent cat but also very anxious when we leave town, but she came on time every day and tried playing and hanging out with him. I think he actually enjoyed their time together! Her updates were amazing and we loved seeing the pictures of Dex every morning. Next time we leave town, we’re definitely booking again ❤️”
“Alex is my go to for watching my puppy and cat. She LOVES them like they are her own and is so detailed when it comes to their care. She is always my first choice for when I am away as I know they are in safe hands.”
“I am grateful for the outstanding care that Yu provided to my dog while I was away on a business trip. She treated my furry companion as if he were her own, going above and beyond in every aspect of his care. From feeding and walking him to showering him with love and affection. The regular photos and videos she shared with me kept me connected and reassured me that my dog was in excellent hands. I wholeheartedly recommend Yu as a trustworthy and dedicated pet caregiver to anyone in need.”
“Ellen was always extremely loving and caring with my cat and I would definitely book her again. She sent great pictures and it looked like they had a great time together.”
