About: My mom works in veterinary medicine so we always had so many different animals around. Cats, dogs, birds, Snakes, guinea pigs; a little of everything. I ended up also working in vet med and have been working directly with animals for 6 years now. The last 2 years I have worked in a fear free clinic and have a special love for giant breed dogs! Evenings and weekends are the best times for me for drop ins and walks; but I have flexible availability throughout the day to meet your needs. I have a two story town house, so even though I have cats in the home, they will be upstairs and a baby gate will be on the stairs. I have a small shaded yard and a bigger open field behind us. We are close to a road, so pets will not be allowed outside without a leash as well as a slip lead if you are okay with that. I will also ask for any dogs being taken on a walk to have a leash and a slip lead as well. I will provide the lead.
“Emmy has cared for my beloved dog Zoey like she is her own dog. Emmy is thoughtful, caring, attentive and the sweetest woman, especially to my Zoey! She has watched Zoey during high times of stress in my life, but knowing Zoey was with Emmy brought me so much peace and comfort. I can rely on Emmy for updates and pictures when I’m out of town and there is no doubt Zoey is spoiled when she is with Emmy!”
“My family highly recommends Julia for all of your pet-sitting needs! We have used Julia numerous times to watch our 3 cats while on vacation and Julia does an amazing job. Cats were fed, litter boxes cleaned and time spent socializing is exactly what we, and the cats needed! Julia is the best, so allow her to exceed your pet-sitting expectations!”
“I have known Emily for over 3 years now and she has also known my family's Shih Tzu for 3 years. She has a genuine love for animals so whenever she is around Mufasa, she treats him with respect and always makes sure he is cared for in the best way. Mufasa loves to receive cuddles and pets from Emily whenever she visits. She is a very trustworthy person and I would always be willing to let her take care of Mufasa in the case that I needed her to.”
“I owe Darnell x100000. Everything I could ask for in a walker. I was nervous because my dog can be a puller and especially crazy with new people . Darnell took great care and things went better than I could imagine. Will definitely hope that he’ll be available in the future . Ice loved him! Thanks again bro !”
“Patient bc I nearly forgot to get ready for Steven! Sumo was happy and relieved!”
“Alex walked my dog a few times when I was out of town for travel. She was super communicative and shared lots of pics. Will be using her services again.”
“I am so grateful to have found Mariah. She is an awesome caretaker for my pup on their weekly walks. She is punctual and always keeps me updated with pics and descriptions of anything noteworthy. Would highly recommend her for anyone seeking a trustworthy sitter/walker. 👍🏼”

About: I’m a teacher, and I love dogs, but I can’t have them in my apartment. I would love to spend some time with yours! I had a dog for years, and I have watched other dogs on weekends for the past three years. I’m on summer break, so I am not working full-time right now. I have plenty of time to give to your dog this summer! I am often walking every morning and afternoon anyway. I can help out in any way that’s needed. I love taking walks, and I’m always up for going the long way! For drop ins, I will give your pets some love and whatever else they need!
