“I’ve never done a dog walking service before and was a little nervous BUT, Cynthia is WONDERFUL and I know Achilles is well taken care of when I’m at work!”
“Aubrey has dropped in for several walks and she is nothing short of amazing! She goes above and beyond to take care of my dog and leaves detailed updates with pictures after each visit. It is such a relief knowing my dog is in great hands while getting breaks from his crate while I’m at work!”
“Tori is delightful! She has great communication and took wonderful care of our girl. Will definitely use her on the regular. Came home to a happy pup!”
“Anna was an excellent dogwalker. My pet loved her, she was professional, great at communication, and went above and beyond to make sure my dog was cared for.”
“Julia took care of my two cats for almost two months. She was very dependable and caring. She was able to slowly coax my very shy cat out of her hiding place. 1 would highly recommend her for pet sitting. I would ask her to do it again for me.”
“Patience and persistence is Candace’s key virtues in handling sometimes difficult dogs. Merlin is slowly coming around to leashing and walking with others besides his owner!”
“Christina was great- she was responsive, reliable, communicated each day, and sent pictures. We were lucky to find her. Thank you Christina!”
“Ileandra is a great person and loves pets. She has her own pets and treat them all like her children. You would be gaining on a great teammate.”
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.
“Kadence was a very kind and responsible caretaker for our pups! She was always on time and kept us informed throughout her care. Thanks Kadence, we appreciate you!”
“Brittany goes out of her way to make sure that we and our pets are well cared for! We don’t leave them behind very often but, when necessary, we love it when Brittany takes over! She is like having a favorite aunt show up and the dogs and cats love her! Brittany is also very responsive to communications and provides timely updates on a daily basis, so we are aware of what’s happening in our pets lives while we’re away. I would not hesitate to use her pet sitting services anytime we need help!”
About: I grew up on a horse farm with dogs, cats, horses and cows! Heavy experience with all types of dogs from corgis to hounds and an Australian shepherd I work from home full time which gives me a flexible schedule and more availability to do drop ins and walks throughout the day or night I follow all instructions from owners to a T and always make sure the animal is safe and happy in their space, the animal comes first
“Patient bc I nearly forgot to get ready for Steven! Sumo was happy and relieved!”
“Devinder is great with my dog. He takes the time to connect with Baloo and gives him the mid-day attention and care needed while I'm at work. Devinder is very reliable and is very good at communicating. I would highly recommend!”
“Kristina is amazing. Kodak can be hard to manage but she managed him. I am so thankful she is able to walk my pup because we were running out of options. I hope she comes back again. Thanks for being amazing Kristina”
“Kayley was fantastic! Gave our boy a good long walk which is his favorite thing. She even cooked some carrots for him since he’s too much a wuss to eat normal or frozen ones lol we will definitely use Kayley again!”
“Jenel was very sweet, thorough, and accommodating! We had to book last minute due to a change in travel arrangements and she was very helpful! Would definitely book her again in the future!”
“Lydia has many years of experience with dogs, as she grew up with 2, and will take great care of them. I couldn't recommend someone more than her”
“Deanna did a great job caring for my cats while I was away! She is reliable, friendly, and I appreciated receiving updates about my shy kitties. She was great at communicating and I felt very comfortable having her in my home. I will definitely use Deanna as my go-to cat and dog sitter!”
About: I have taken care of many pets through fostering, volunteering or pet sitting. I am capable of managing pets with health needs, anxiety problems or aggression. No task is too daunting to take care of our furry family members. I work part time as a dance teacher, so my availability is very open. At most I will be away from home for 3 hours. I know how disorienting it can be for a pet to be alone / away from family, so I try to give lots of attention. I typically create a space solely for the pet to have- this establishes independence, safety and comfort. I tend to anticipate the needs of the pet and tune into what I can do to make them more comfy.
