Pet Sitting & Drop Ins in Claremont, Oakland
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
About: I have been caring for pets since I was a child. I have cared for dogs with physical disabilities and who require medications. I am also a nurse so feel very comfortable in the caregiving role. I work from home so have a reasonable amount of flexibility. I take my own dogs for a walk twice a day and regularly visit dog parks for socialization. I have a fully enclosed deck with yard space. I have two dogs of my own one of whom is blind. My kids are 12 and 14 and they also love pets. They would enjoy playing with new pups if the owner's approve.
“Michelle has watched our dog many times and been phenomenal each time. Great updates and pictures. I highly recommend.”
“Tanze was great. She was easy to communicate with, understood our care instructions and was very communicative on her arrival times, sending Pictures and how our kitties were doing.”
“Christine provided an excellent pet-sitting experience for my cat :). Christine was punctual, attentive, and kept me updated with daily photos and messages, giving me peace of mind while I was away. I highly recommend Christine's services for any pet owner.”
About: I've been providing pet care for the past 5+ years to friends and family. I grew up surrounded by animals and have three years experience training service dogs. I love being outside and caring for animals! I am a recent grad and have been traveling the past few months. I'm still taking time off, and I have a very flexible and open schedule to accommodate pet care. I have experience with a variety of dogs and cats. I feel comfortable accommodating a variety of needs and situations, but I will always refer back to the client's preferences and safety for all as a top priority.
“Karina has been helpful in getting our dog the extra walk he needs on our busiest days. I got a few photos and even a tracking of the walk. Will definitely keep reaching out to her.”
“This was my first time using a pet sitter for my kittens. Aaron patiently answered all my questions and was clearly knowledgeable about caring for cats. He was pleasant to work with and communicative at every step. I came home to a clean house and two happy cats. Couldn't be happier!”
“Great guy. Very responsible and considerate. Cats love him.”
“Bailey was a true professional in the way he looked after our cats. He was punctual, communicative and very thoughtful in how he cared for them. Thank you Bailey and we hope to see you again soon!”
“Flannery is amazing!! She went above and beyond for our senior pup who is really sensitive to the heat. She kept him comfortable and happy. And she handled our other animals very well too. We are happy to keep using her!”
“My dog loves staying with Sarah! On top of providing a fun and comfortable stay, Sarah has been very flexible after I’ve had two cancelled flights delaying my return. My dog loves attention and cuddles and I never have to worry about leaving him with Sarah.”
“Jess did an amazing job taking care of my cat Luna! She made sure to keep me updated and followed all of my care instructions carefully. Luna was a bit skittish to start out but Jess was patient and Luna definitely warmed up to her!”
“Absolutely the best. She took care above and beyond. She brought a new toy for my kitties to play with during her visit. She was very mindful of our living space. She provided a detailed “report card” of what she did and how my kitties were. I NEVER had a cat sitter like this before. She has a new forever client so long as I live close enough. Absolutely fantastic.”
“Zara was great for our last minute 30-minute drop in visit. She was very responsive and took our dog on a nice walk in the neighborhood. She shared a lot of pictures so we knew he was well taken care of. We will definitely use Zara again!”
“Kelsey was phenomenal with Bettie, our aging indoor cat. She was thoughtful, diligent, communicative, and sent great updates with photos. The photos showed her snuggling with our baby and the updates were really helpful. Totally eased our anxiety about being away from our elderly cat. Can’t recommend her enough.”
“Isabella takes care of my dogs whenever we are away. She is extremely attentive and loving with them, and pays attention to their every need. She has taken them on long walks and hikes, and now that our older dog is slowing down she patiently makes sure he gets enough exercise and stimulation without overdoing it. She loves to cuddle and spend time with them. Bella is a top notch dog-sitter/walker/caregivewr and we highly reccomend her!”
“Jessie was fantastic. Very communicative and proactive. Our cats loved her. We will definitely work with her again!”
“Reijun was so attentive to my cat, through the photos I can tell she had a good time. I highly recommend and definitely would book her again!!”
About: Growing up as an only child, I cherished the companionship of my dogs, firmly believing that animals are life's most precious gift. I understand that time spent with them is invaluable. I am enthusiastic about extending my care and affection to pets when their families are away. As an adult and a dedicated cat owner for seven years, I appreciate the significance of maintaining a close bond with our animal friends, especially when separated. I am eager to contribute to their well-being and offer peace of mind to their owners during their absence. I am a medical doctor who moved to california recently with my husband. I am currently not working in the medical field and only hwlping out my husband while he finished his MBA. I travel a lot but while in town my schedule is pretty flexible. I would not bring pets to my home since I have 2 cats. I would be happy to attend to others houses to feed, play and walk :)
About: I currently do not have pets in my home so all my attention will be directed towards your pet! I have a lot of personal pet care experience living with and looking after pets (puppies, senior dogs, cats/kittens, and rabbits) that belonged to my friends, family, roommates, and my own. I've also cared for both sick cats and dogs. I always maintain dedicated attentiveness, friendliness, and tenderness. I work remotely from home, so your pet will definitely receive a lot of attention, supervision, and care throughout the morning, day, or evening. I really value the time I spend with animals, so I usually almost always stay home when I’m sitting for a pet. Being active and going on walks/hikes is already part of my daily/weekly routine—furry companions would only make them better! I live in a spacious one bedroom apartment near many public parks and trails. I can provide all pet essentials and feed, walk, groom, pet, and play with your pet. I've also had experience administering pet medication. I can crate your dog if needed.
