“Michelle was the sweetest person and took great care of my sweet Maltipoo Marshall. She sent me cute pictures and updates throughout the day. We were able to enjoy our DC trip without worrying about him because I knew he was in great hands. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone!!! Very trustworthy with your fur babies♥️♥️♥️”
“Lexus was great with our puppy! She took great care of her, was super responsive throughout the day and easy to get ahold of, and was all around a great sitter. I would highly recommend Lexus for any dog sitting needs.”
“Roshni took very good care of our dog, who is pretty shy and anxious. Roshni asked great questions about our dog that demonstrated that she is knowledgeable and empathetic about caring for animals. Questions like checking for allergies, confirming emergency vet info, ask about pet preferences, checking for triggers, etc. She was very patient and upbeat as I shared about our dogs less charming quirks. She sent updates and pictures throughout. It was clear our dog was in good company and I was able to focus on my own day without worrying about our high maintenance dog. Will definitely book Roshni again!”
“Pat cares for dogs in a loving and kind way since he has grown up with them. He will always cater to their needs and I trust Pat to take care of my dog. I highly recommend him.”
“Chris is kind, personable, flexible, & responsive. He took great care of our 5 1/2 yr old Akita for the whole day. Reasonable rate, excellent value. Thank you, Chris. PB & Jb”
Andrea & Andreas P.
“We have nothing but rave reviews for Andrea. She was a blessing to us and our pup, Ernie, when we needed a dogsitter for the day. It was easy to see that Ernie felt completely comfortable in her care. We were able to enjoy our day without worrying if he was okay because we could tell he was safe and being loved very well. She sent us text updates and a photo of him snoozing as happy as could be. She even went above and beyond by sharing restaurant recommendations and transportation advice as we were visiting DC for the first time. Truly an answered prayer to a couple who has never left our baby with a sitter before and was a bit nervous. A million stars!”
Leonard & Kathryn J.
“Leonard has been great with JohnnyB. The second time I dropped him off, he ran right to him and didn't even look back. It's a great opportunity for him to hang out with dog friends since he is an only dog. Leonard provides updates and pictures throughout the day. I'm thrilled we were able to find him through Rover.”
“Arial takes care of my sweet Perla when I travel. She takes such a good care and gives her love and keep us update of how she is doing. Perla is always excited to see her!”
“Liz is an amazing pet sitter. She is punctual, friendly, super helpful and kind. My dog has been sick and very stressed from our recent move and Liz has been a lifesaver, purchasing chicken and cooking it up for him, bathing him and scrubbing away poo from his explosive diarrhea. Did I mention Liz is a saint? Please dont book her because she is our nanny for life! Just kidding, book Liz if she's available!”
“Madeline has been incredible with my pup. He gets so excited every time he sees her. She sends tons of updates and is very accommodating with my hectic schedule. She really goes out of her way for us and I am so grateful!”
“Becca did a wonderful job taking care of my dog Bella. She came home happy and tired every day. Bella can be anxious when first left at a new place but Becca did a great job keeping her distracted and making her comfortable. Bella had all kinds of fun walking, running around outside, playing, and enjoying the company of other dogs. I had to drag her away on her last day there. I highly recommend Becca for all dog care services.”
Jordan & Paul F.
“Jordan and Paul were lovely hosts. They both greeted me and my dog took to them quickly. On the second day she almost jumped out of the car to greet them. The property is nice and the neighborhood is dog friendly with a cool dog park nearby. I would book again and trust them with my pup.”
“I highly recommend Marla as a pet caregiver. She always watches my dogs when I go out of town. My dogs love her, she loves them, and I trust her completely. She's also done animal rescue and fostered dogs, so she's very knowledgable. She truly loves animals and takes such good care of them. Your clients would be able to rest easy knowing their precious furry family members are in good hands!”
“Sofia was great to work with: flexible, engaged with Ralfie in enrichment activities, and provided regular updates and photos via text. I will happily leave Ralfie with her again.”
“I have known Mason to be a caring and responsible owner of his family’s dogs. He is excited to meet new dogs in DC, whether that be in his apartment building, out in the park or elsewhere. I’m confident that your dog will be in good hands with Mason.”
About: Aside from caring for my own dogs as well as neighbors’ pets my whole life, I was a periodic live-in sitter for an elderly pug that required extra care, including medications and eye drops. I also fostered 2 chiweenie puppies for a few months until they were able to find a forever home. I work from home on my own schedule, and would love some company. Since I don’t have set hours, I have time for several walks throughout the day and into the evening. I have a spacious 1 bedroom apartment nearby several parks. I’m happy to stay in with a sleepy dog or go on long walks with an energetic pup, as I am an active person.
“An absolute doll ! My pup loved it here, when he got home he was koeddd ( exactly what I wanted) I will absolutely bring him back, great communication and he looked happy the entire time.”
“Luciana is great! She was available to help me out with a last minute request and flexible with her support. But most importantly she took great care of my dog and shared requested updates. I would definitely reach out to Luciana again!”
“Angela is the best! Our senior dog quickly warms up to her and her pooch, and she sends great photo updates throughout the day. Pick up and drop off is a breeze, and we always pick up a happy and healthy dog from her home.”
Aleksandra & Thomas T.
“Aleks has watched my dog Banksy many times - she is the best! Banksy never wants to come home after slumber parties with Aleks and her sweet dog Penny. Can't recommend her enough. -Lauren Y.”
