“Coretta was an amazing caretaker. She was consistent, on time, gave me thorough updates, and provided great care for my pets. 15 out of 10 would recommend!”
“Shit is an animal whisperer and is the person who brought my furry baby to me, rescuing her as a stray and eventually finding her a home with me. Shit is detailed, attentive, loving, and trustworthy. Highly recommend!”
“Shakira did an awesome job dropping-in on the two girls while we were away. She kept us up-to-date with pictures and let us know when some special needs arose...went above and beyond to take care of them. Highly recommended...we will definitely look forward to booking her again in the future.”
About: I am a college grad and former dog owner with previous experience working as a dog sitter since high school. I love pets immensely, and am so excited to meet yours! Every dog I get to greet is a gift, and I treat them as such. Through my own experience as a dog owner, alongside my diverse experience with other dogs, I have learned a lot that I get to bring to these new situations. I know how vital calmness can be, and keep myself patient. I know every dog is different, so please share everything you can about your animal and all their quirks! Getting to interact with animals is so much fun and so fulfilling, I wish to spend more of my time doing it when I can. I currently work from home, so my schedule is incredibly flexible! I'm available for walks throughout the week and can stay with your fur baby as need be. I like to keep the care of your pet as close as possible to their normal routine, so please keep that information clearly written out if possible, or we can write it out together!
Emma & Emily F.
“Emma stayed at our ranch for a week while we were out of town. She was perfect. We returned to a happy cat and a clean house. She kept in communication with us. She learned how to operate all the systems that could cause problems during her sit, and that made us feel very secure about leaving her with an entire ranch to care for.”
“LUPE IS AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things here. Lupe was so responsive, thoughtful—amazing catographer and sent pics during each visit. I never felt worried about Randy while Lupe was watching him. She even took out my garbage and brought in my mail! I will definitely contact Lupe again for another drop-in.”
“Maria was very respectful, responsive, and responsible. She sent pictures and information of the dog from start to finish. I would highly recommend her.”
“Chau is such the animal whisper. Somehow animals gravitate to her, probably because she understands their boundaries and has a kind soul. I’ve been fortunate to watcher her raise her one year old pup. Her dog is so well behaved and confident, which speaks to the training Chau did with her. Chau is thoughtful and patient. Your fur baby will be in really good hands.”
“From day one you were able to see the passion and love that Dominique has for pets. My Rocky instantly picked up on her genuine spirit. Rocky is very shy to new people typically but immediately bonded with Dominique from day 1. He looks forward to their daily walks, often waiting for her by the door around his scheduled time. She even lends an extra helping hand by keeping him when me and my family are out of town. She is also now his preferred ride to the groomer as well lol. I am so glad that we found her.”
“Susan is great! She has come to spend time with my cat about 4 or 5 times now. She is always very communicative and has built a sweet relationship with my buddy! I am very grateful to have her stop by when I’m away, and I know my cat is too!!”
“Beverly was fantastic and we would use her again in a heartbeat! We ran into a key issue and she was so patient and helpful in adjusting and making sure our boys were well cared for and happy.”
“Alexis took care of my female senior Chihuahua on countless occasions. She kept me informed with regular pictures, updates, and made sure to express any concerns. Alexis always accommodated me and my dog was always excited to stay with her. She really cares a lot about animals, and it shows very much. I highly recommend Alexis to watch your dog.”
“Derek has helped me with house sitting my pet for multiple days while I was out of town. He really made me feel comfortable by following the steps down to the punctuation, as my dog has pretty bad anxiety. He’s one of the few people my Daisy trusts, and I agree with her.”
“My 2 dogs love karina! She's very attentive to both dog's individual needs. They love she always has a special treat for each of them”
About: I really enjoy getting to know the dogs, cuddling, and playing with them. I am okay with cleaning up after dogs, because I have been walking my own dogs for years. I have fostered and owned dogs and cats of all sizes, so no size is too big or small. If there is a yard, I would love to play with the dogs the entire time that I am watching them, if not I am willing to walk them to a park to let them get their exercise, and have time to socialize. I am open to working with schedules, and if possible, doing last minute bookings. Communication is key with me, so as long as we are both on the same page, I am here for your dog! I am working full time, but I am always free to walk dogs before work, after work, or on the weekends. I am also more than happy to watch cats while you are on vacation. I currently have 2 dogs and 2 cats, so you can decide if you would prefer the dog to socialize, or for me to do a stay at your home! I have an extra crate if crating is necessary, but I usually leave dogs out so they can roam explore and let me know when they would like to play. Even if I am busy, I will always make sure to pause and give your furr baby a play break. I honestly believe, dogs know what they need, and extra cuddles never hurt. With that, I always try to keep an eye out for cues about the bathroom, water, or food, and also give them lots of love.
“Holly is truly an exceptional person and dog watcher! We met at a dog park near her house before my dog Jake had his week long stay at her house. And he absolutely fell in love with her which is quite out of the ordinary nowadays for him. He didn’t want to leave her side so from that point I knew she had amazing energy. She sent pictures and videos the entire week Jake stayed with her to assure me that he was doing more than amazing. I highly recommend booking Holly if you want your fur baby to be treated with so much love and care.”
“My dog loves Viola! She’s one of the very few people that he truly feels the most comfortable around, so she’s one I know I can depend on to dogsit for me whenever I travel and can’t take him with me, and I’ve never had ANY problems when I come to pick him up after. Viola is attentive, caring, and very responsible when it comes to administering his medications and feeding him according to his special diet. Of course I’d recommend her!”

“Emma has watched my puppies many times for a few years now, and they always come home happy! She is an animal lover and will take the best possible care of your furry friends. I would recommend her to anyone.”
“Olivia is a very attentive and responsible cat owner. She has taken wonderful care of her cat Robin. She has experience growing up with two Corgis, who she was in charge of walking every day, and never fails to stop to pet a dog on the street! She has also spent years volunteering at an animal shelter acclimating dogs and cats in Houston, TX. I cannot imagine anyone more suited to be a dog walker or sitter!”
