Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
“Sydney took Bella hiking for the day with her family. Bella had an amazing time and I’m grateful for her treating Bella like she is part of the family.”
“Totally amazing! My dog can be slow to warm up to new people but she was able to make him feel comfortable and safe from the first day. I really appreciated the updates as well, would rebook any time I need a sitter.”
“My dog is very shy and socially awkward. Veronica was very understanding and kept me updated while she watched my dog. It was relieving to see her in a good mood when I picked her up because normally she’s distressed and anxious. Would definitely use Veronica again.”
“Chad and his wife, Maria are kind, loving, and patient. They have a dog, as well as two daughters who are growing into wonderful young ladies, so they are responsible and know what it takes to care for and nurture those who cannot fully care for themselves (whether human or a sweet fur baby)! I would entrust Chad/Maria with anything dear to me.”
“Caroline was amazing! She is a very committed sitter who puts her whole heart into her work and loved our sweet girl so well. She communicated quickly and throughly and was very flexible. We highly recommend her and we will use her every time we go out of town.”
About: As a devoted dog owner myself, I've been hands-on with training and caring for my own 5-month-old pup. I've successfully taught him tricks, ensured obedience, and mastered potty training, providing me with practical skills to offer the same level of care and guidance to your furry companion. As a dedicated full-time college student, my schedule revolves around my classes, ensuring that your furry friend will receive the utmost attention during my available hours. My available hours are Monday-Friday after 3pm. I’m available on weekends for boarding. Rest easy knowing your furry companion will thrive in a secure apartment complex with expansive walking areas and a recently renovated dog park. Indoors, I prioritize mental enrichment with engaging activities like lick mats, snuffle mats, and homemade enrichment, fostering a well-rounded and contented pet experience. I have 2 male roommates so if your pup has a fear of men, I may not be the best fit for you and that’s okay!
“Chelsea took great care of my cat and provided updates, as well as being readily available on short notice.”
“This was my first time leaving my dog with someone and Maggie made the experience easy. Nelly had a great time playing with her dog and came home a happy and tired pup! We will definitely book again.”
“Sandra was great. She sent me pictures and updates while my pup was visiting. Will definitely use her services again.”
“Merrell was fantastic sitter. She is a dog lover and it shows. Zuri (my puppy) jumped in to her arms as soon as I dropped her off and I know she was well taken care of. Merrell kept me informed on how Zuri did and sent me pictures. I will be using her again and know that Zuri will be left in capable hands.”
“Great personality, very attentive, sent me updates, and Daisy loved her.”
About: Lover of all dogs. I grew up with all types of dogs (labs, miniature dachshunds, cocker spaniels). Currently, I own 5 dogs - 1 labradoodle and 4 labs, which are my whole world. In 2022 and beginning of 2023, I trained over 10 puppies (ages ranging from 3 months to 7 months) to be potential service dogs for a non-profit organization. I am currently training lab puppies (ages ranging from 3 months to 6 months) for different families across the country. I also train my own labs for AKC and HRC hunt test. I specialize in basic obedience, socialization, and started gun dog training with my main goal in making your dog the best dog they can be so you can actually enjoy spending time with your dog either at home or in a public setting. I mostly work from home during the week so I am available during most hours of the day. On days that I am in the office I have availability during the morning and evening hours. I have a fully fenced in backyard that has cameras that cover the whole property. I also have a smaller fenced in area that can be used for smaller dogs.
“Paige was awesome!!! Super friendly and she puts off a great vibe. Suzy jumped right out of the car and made herself right at home. I checked in a few times throughout the day and got great responses including pictures and video. She even had some of her athletes come to hang out and play with Suzy. It was real nice to know I was able to leave my puppy in good hands and know that while I was having a fun day skiing she was having fun too.”
“Macy took such good care of my fur baby! She is also very accommodating and quick to respond. Definitely book her for any of your pet care needs.”
“Simply put, Augusta’s a pet whisperer. She intuitively understands a pet’s needs and addresses them immediately. Aside from being loving and fun, she’s responsible, energetic, clean, and conscientious. When I had a cat, Augusta was the first person I’d turn to for sitting because I knew my baby was going to be in the best of hands. My kitty’s since moved on, but Augusta has remained a true friend through all the years. Give her a try; I assure you she won’t disappoint!”
About: I have had little dogs (chihuahuas) my whole life, learned lots taking care of my senior chihuahua and have a special place in my heart for little ones that need extra love. I am a resident so my schedule changes but when I’m not at the hospital I am free since it’s just Luna and I at home so both of us could always use some company or provide others with some company. I have a fenced yard and a friendly pup at home. I can walk, crate, or give meds to your pup if needed! I am very good at adjusting to new environments and making your pet feel right at home.
“Finn was very happy and had an amazing time”
“Kennedy has taken great care of our two dogs over the years. She treats them so kindly, has fun with them, and is incredibly trustworthy. She is a great pet caregiver!”
About: I have been taking care of dogs ever since I was a child. I helped out neighbors, friends, families, and many other people have asked me to watch their dog(s) on many different occasions. I thoroughly enjoy watching and caring for dogs. I have had dogs all while I was growing up as well. I previously lived in Conway, SC. While living in Conway, I was able to foster for All4Paws Animal Rescue. This is a no-kill animal shelter in Pawley Island, SC. Here I successfully fostered a litter of 4 puppies who all contracted the Parvovirus. Through that explerience I was able to learn a lot about both puppy safety, and general dog safety. In my care, the 4 puppies were nursed back to health and successfully adopted! I also fostered a 6 year old German Shephard with a heart condition and administered her medication daily. She was also adopted! I fostered many other dogs as well with this organization and I loved every minute of it. I learned so much that I was able to implement into my dog sitting services. I am capable of taking care of dogs of all ages, showing love and affection, and also providing a safe relaxing environment to reduce any feelings of anxiety. I also work very hard to make your pet feel comfortable as I know some dogs struggle being away from home. I know and understand warning signs of anxiety in dogs, and also know and understand the proper actions to take to help with that feeling. I will also provide you pictures, texts, phone calls, and you may also request FaceTime or live video. *MY APARTMENT COMPLEX DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO HOST THESE BREEDS* - Chow chow - German Shephard - Doberman pinscher - Pitbull/pitbull mixes - Bulldog - Rottweiler *HOWEVER, if you’re booking for anything that requires me to travel to you, I am more than happy to care for any breed!!

“Mia has dog sat for my two dogs many times and her love for animals is evident! My boys love her and when they see her come officially do not care about me which I see as a good thing. I would not hesitate to leave my boys in her care whether it is for a day or a week. I always know they will get a lot of attention and love from her.”
