Jason was so great with my German shepherd, Klaus. He took him on several walks throughout the day and kept him entertained. He also sent numerous texts, photos and updates which made me feel comforted about leaving him. Can’t wait to book with Jason again! He’s great and Klaus seems so happy.

Devyn was fantastic with my fur babies and any requests I had of her while I was away from home visiting family on the other side of the country. My dogs tend to be hesitant of new people, but were happily cuddled up with her in bed by the end of the first day.

Ariena was terrific with our dog, Rio. She was very friendly, took to Rio right away, and he took to her right away also. She was very attentive to him; sent us pictures of his activities, and generally did a great job. She even fed my cats their wet food in the morning. We would definitely consider Ariena again should we need a dog sitter.

Khala was a wonderful sitter for our 2 pups. She is very communicative and considerate. We felt very comfortable leaving our girls and home in her care. She gave the pups lots of love and attention, and it was very clear that they loved their time with her when we returned home. We would highly recommend her and most definitely will use her again to look after the girls. Thank you!

Thank you thank you thank you!!!, You truly went above and beyond, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Your genuine love and understanding of dogs were evident from the moment I met you. Ziggy instantly warmed up to you, and I could tell he felt safe and loved under your care. The regular updates and adorable photos you shared during his stay brought a smile to my face and reassured me that he was having a fantastic time with you. Ziggy was being a picky eater when I was away and Ethan had excellent recommendations for food toppers and picked them up from the pet store for me! Your friendly and relaxed approach made Ziggy feel right at home, and I could see the bond you formed with him. Thank you so much for treating Ziggy like family and providing him with such a wonderful experience. I give Ethan my highest recommendation to anyone in need of a caring and trustworthy dog sitter. Thank you again <3

I was going on a long weekend trip and wanted someone in town for in home dog sitting of my 2 small dogs. I liked Jill’s profile. She followed all my instructions, administered my dogs’ meds and was there with them most of the days and throughout the nights. My 11 lb dog has a spinal injury. I mentioned he won’t easily go down a 1/2 flight of stairs to access the backyard for potty and she may need to coax him. She carried him down very sweet of her. I could see that she truly cares for animals. She also respected my home, brought in the mail and trash cans. I would definitely book her again.

Katie is a very caring individual. I have known her for many years and she has always been especially caring and loving towards animals. She has always been very dependable and I have relied on her to take care of my late dog for quite a few years whenever I would go out of town. She always walked, fed, and played with my dog as much as was needed and when I would come back I’d be coming back to a very happy puppy.

I have known Ken for several years now, and I can confidently say that he is an exemplary dog owner. His dedication to the well-being and happiness of his dog, Churro, is truly commendable. Ken's experience in caring for dogs shines through in every interaction he has with Churro. Not only does Ken ensure that Churro receives proper nutrition, exercise, and medical attention, but he also goes above and beyond to provide Churro with love, attention, and enrichment. Whether it's going for long walks in the park, playing fetch in the backyard, or simply cuddling on the couch, Ken always prioritizes Churro's happiness and fulfillment. Ken's knowledge and experience in dog care are evident in the way he handles any situation that may arise with Churro. From basic obedience training to addressing behavioral issues, Ken approaches each challenge with patience, understanding, and expertise. In addition to his exceptional care for Churro, Ken also serves as a valuable resource for fellow dog owners, offering advice, support, and guidance based on his own experiences. His passion for dogs is infectious, and his commitment to their well-being is truly inspiring. In summary, Ken is not just a dog owner – he is a loving and responsible caregiver who goes above and beyond to ensure the happiness and health of his furry companion. I wholeheartedly recommend Ken to anyone seeking a trustworthy and experienced individual to care for their beloved pet.

Matt took great care of my dog, Koji. Koji is a very skittish and nervous rescue so finding a sitter for him has been difficult, but Matt provided expert and professional care. Communication was easy and he sent updates throughout my trip. Would definitely recommend.

My name is Maridey and I have known Erika for a few years now… overall I would say Erika is a very responsible, loving, and caring, and attentive person! She is a very trustworthy person to whom I left my dog Sally under care for while I was out of town. She was very patient and understand of the instructions I left her for my dog and followed everything accordingly. She managed to watch my dog for a week and also made sure to take her on her daily walks per usual. With this, Erika has demonstrated to me that she is a great pet care giver.

About: I work at a dog daycare facility so I've nurtured and tended to furry companions of all shapes and sizes, ensuring their happiness and well-being every step of the way. I am also well versed on basic manners and obedience training. Currently I have a 10 year old german shepherd and a 8 month old rottweiler who I take with me everywhere and gets training everyday! I am also less than 10 minutes from Oakland International Airport. Balancing my work at a dog daycare facility, I dedicate special attention to pet care on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays when I'm home all day. These moments allow me to create a consistent and loving routine for my furry friends, ensuring they receive the attention, walks, and care they deserve. In both settings, I prioritize creating a safe and nurturing environment. In my home, it involves a designated play area with 6 ft tall fully blocked off gates so no one can bother the dogs from the outside, regular walks, ample cuddle time, and a comfortable resting space. For clients' homes, I replicate their pet's routines, maintaining consistency in feeding schedules, exercise, and any specific care instructions provided by the owner.

My first experience with Natalia when I was out of town for several days was so good that I have used her again for a second extended time away and will continue to do so. My two cats are super comfortable with her. One is 17 years old and on medication's twice a day which Natalia conscientiously made sure she had. The other is 11 years old and very skittish so it was a great surprise that she actually came out the first time Natalia was here. She did a great job making sure the cats were fed and sat with them to give them full attention and pet them; well, at least the older one while the younger one watched. She sent me updates both morning and night with photos. My trash cans were taken out and brought in, all instructions were followed carefully, and the cat area and kitchen were all cleaned. I recommend Natalia without hesitation.

Nicole went beyond our hopes! Nicole regularly sent pictures and updates. We could see how happy our guy was. When we came home be was relaxed and not at all stressed from us being away (as he had been after other sitters). Nicole followed all instructions to care for our guy was is a little high maintenance due to back trouble. Nicole discovered his favorite games and even gave him a nice brushing at the end of their time together. We were so pleased and would love to have Nicole come back!
