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.
“Booked again with Thea, and everything was perfect, yet again! Puppies were worn out when we got home! Definitely book with her! You will not be disappointed!”
“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!”
“Megan did such an amazing job taking care of our pup for us. It is obvious that she LOVES dogs, and our dog LOVED her. She sent us lots of pictures and videos and went completely above and beyond what was expected. We are so grateful and will definitely ask Megan to take care of our pup again, especially since I’m pretty sure our dog misses her already. Thank you so much, Megan!”
“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.”
“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!”
“Candice was so professional and kind and really helped me with my newly adopted dog. The first day the dog ended up escaping from my apartment and Candice was immediately on it. She searched for him and eventually picked him up a couple miles away. I couldn't be more grateful for her help, great communication, and patience with the new dog with some serious separation anxiety. I would 100% recommend her.”
“Ricky is very good with doggo, Ralphie. We had a meet and greet before confirming our on-going appointments. Ricky came to my house and connected right away with Ralphie and I. Throughout the week he has been very proactive with communication and photos for each drop-in appointment. Ricky is great and I am grateful to have is a part of our family.”
“Kay has brought a pleasant, gentle, and attentive attitude to both my cat and our correspondence. I greatly appreciate her service in the pet care. Both my cat and I have felt a safety in attending and watching over what matters to us. And bonus, I returned home to a unclustered space.”
“Thank you so much Ethan for looking after my dog, Papi. Seriously, this guy is amazing! From the moment I left Papi with him, I could tell they were going to have a blast together. Ethan's love for dogs is off the charts. He treated Papi like a VIP, giving him all the attention and care he needed. I loved receiving the updates and photos Ethan sent throughout Papi's stay. It was clear that they were having a blast together, going on adventures and enjoying some serious playtime. Not only is Ethan great with dogs, but he's also super professional and reliable. He was always on time and quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. It was such a relief knowing that Papi was in such capable hands. If you're looking for a dog sitter who will treat your furry friend like family, Ethan is your guy. I can't recommend him enough. Papi had the time of his life, and I know your pup will too! Thanks again, Ethan. You're a rockstar!”

“Avni is a caring and responsible pet caregiver. She fed and walked my dog for several years (when I wasn’t working from home!) and was reliable and super affectionate with my dog, who adored her. She walked him in the neighborhood but also took him to parks where he could go off leash as she knew what a high energy (mixed) breed he was, especially when he was younger. I would highly recommend Avni as a pet caretaker and walker.”
“Chad has all the perfect traits of a dog sitter. He loves every dog, no matter its size or temperament. He is kind, patient, and responsible. I have known his own dogs over the past quarter century, and they have all been very happy, long-lived companions. I would not hesitate to leave my beloved companions on Chad's care.”
“Jason was super responsive on very short notice. Rover doesn’t make it easy for day sitting, but he was happy to work with us to provide exactly what we were looking for in terms of care. Most importantly, he was kind to our sweet boy and made sure to ask about the important details. We would happily recommend Jason and would love to have him watch our boy again.”
“Victoria was amazing. She took really great care of Paisley and made sure she was happy and comfortable while I was out of town. 12/10 would def recommend & book again!”
“Anjalie did a spectacular job sitting for my cat Dom under challenging circumstances ( a cat that rarely is without his immediate family). I can’t thank her enough for combining knowledge, patience, empathy and compassion over the course of 2 weeks. She will be my go to sitter from now on.”
About: I grew up taking care of big dogs. I recently worked at a local doggy daycare(board & train facility), where we specialized in reactivity, meaning most of the dogs we took in to stay over night were aggressive (either with people or dogs). I worked in the boarding department which dealt with administering medication, handling senior or handicap dogs with care, handling new foster dogs and even puppies, handling human reactive dogs or dogs that hated any and all dogs, distributing up to 80 dinners in a timely manner, and required classes like CPR classes for even barrel chested dogs. I also worked in the daycare department and became known as the Mid lifer (Mid was the name of the group) because our boss would only give me the shifts with the Alpha group which were the reactive dogs that were cleared to play together. I learned how to read and diffuse a situation quickly and effectively. I did 12 hour days, six days a week and truly loved it because I got to spend all my time learning about dog behavior, nutrition and training maneuvers. You learn to think fast, be quick on your feet. I love all sizes and breeds and will always have your dogs safety and happiness as my main priority. ❤️ I’m currently working at home and have a veryy OPEN schedule!! I would be happy to drop in last minute to check up on your dog or to take them out for a walk. However, for over night stays they should be scheduled atleast 2 days in advance so that your dog is the happiest goober haha. If you are looking to board, we have a fenced backyard. The dogs can always be seen and safe with fresh air. I also love running my dog in the morning and if your dog is interested I would take them as well! I love providing mental enrichment toys to the dogs during there stay. I personally love using rover so I can practice behavioral dog training so your pup will come back refreshed and happy …maybe even new commands like backup, turn left / right…
