Pet Sitting in Cummington
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your cat or dog.
“Jack has taken care of many different kinds of pets for years. From dogs, cats, rats, snakes, rabbits, guinea pigs, and even an iguana. He is knowledge about animal behavior and does well at communication with pet owners on how they would like there animals routine to be set out in a day. Jack also owns 5 of his own pets so he understands the importance a pet truly has in a family. I would personally say that he would be a wonderful person to have to watch over any pet for any amount of time.”
“Emily is amazing! She made friends with our standoffish scaredy-cat right away and has proved to be incredibly competent and responsive when we need her. We don't know what we would do without her!”
About: Have owned dogs for over 20 years, pet sit for friends, family, and neighbors. I am over cautious and protective when it comes to animals, I'm also active so love walking dogs, throwing a ball for them, or taking them to our local lake for a swim. I have tons of patience for shy dogs, I have dealt with rescue dogs and know when to get close or not to an animal. I have never had an incident where I have had a dog become aggressive with me. I have taken my own dog to obedience school a few times and learned a few key trips for working with difficult dogs or puppies. I have taken care of puppies within the past three years and am comfortable with the extra care they require. I have a solid connection with our local vet and emergency animal hospital and am able to handle dogs who need shots or medications administered. I work from home and have several pets already needing care. Bathroom breaks, walks, ball throwing, catnip time, all of it already happens in my home. We have several pet fences within our home and a puppy proof first floor. If a pet is okay of leash then we walk them around our 4 acres throwing a ball or whatever the pet likes. If a pet is not okay off leash, then we just walk them on a leash on our land every 1.5 or 2 hours or as needed. Water bowls are everywhere, no chemicals are on site within reach of curious puppies, and no cars move very quickly on our driveway and everyone who does arrive at our home knows we have several pets and need to slow down. We have owned dogs for over 25 years and have never had any of our pets get injured.
“Matt is fantastic with our cats. He always sends us photos and videos and the cats always look really happy. He’s been very responsible and communicative; we are so glad that he is here for us and our cats!!”
“Ashley has been a vet tech for a very long time and loves all animals. She lovingly cared for my ailing dog in her final years and i am eternally grateful for her kindness and constant compassion.”
About: You only want the best for you furry friend and I’d love nothing more than to help give them the best! I love all animals from dogs to cats to the creepy crawlies. I work full time days (8:30-4) M-F with weekends off. Evenings I’m usually free. Love to take walks on nice evenings or even early mornings! Your animal & your property’s wellbeing are my number one concerns. I respect the privacy of others and will be sure to deliver the utmost care.
“Bree clearly cares for and loves all animals. She did some short notice drop in visits for my two kittens and sent lots of pictures so I knew all was well. I will absolutely be hiring her again!!”
“Jonathan is great! Our dog is high energy, high anxiety and an overall mess. Not everyone understands why we love him as much as we do, but Jonathan does! And our dog just loves Jonathan!”
About: I've taken care of pets since I was 13 years old, back then it was mostly drop ins but now I do overnights and walks for dogs or any animal that cant be alone at night! Many friends and family have relied on me to take care of their pets and I can't wait to meet yours! I'm currently available pretty much whenever is needed. I have a lot of free time so spending time with your pets won't be a problem! If I am doing drop-ins or an overnight stay I will do everything I can to keep your pet's routine the same as when you are home! Of course, I'd love to take your fur baby on a walk as well!
“Very timely and took good care of Luna”
“Martin is our dog's favorite person. Martin is always up for a walk or run with her, and she knows it. I highly recommend Martin as a dog walker or sitter.”
“Logan was great with our two pups. Very attentive and professional. They loved him.”
“Melanie was excellent. Prompt, communicative, and very personable. We were in very good hands!! Highly recommend.”
About: 5 years ago my family had gotten a puppy (jack Russell, beagle, terroir, Pitt bull mix). My puppy is a big baby, and is scared of everything. From flies to the wind. But he also can be a bit mean and over protective about his belongings. I was able to find ways around him being overly protective about his things. I was the main person to get up early to take him out in the mornings, throughout the day, and at night. We then a year later got his sister from a different litter from the same mom and dad. She is the complete opposite. She is a loving dog. She always wants to cuddle and loves to play and have all the attention to her. Since I was little I’ve always loved dogs. I love playing with them and walking with them. I’m a full time nanny but have a lot of free time on my hands while the kids are at school and their activities. I’m looking for some occasional work and maybe part time opportunities. I would always make sure the pet has food and water. Make sure the environment around them is safe. And make sure to attend their needs in any way that is needed.
“We were very pleased to have Hillaree care for our cat again while we traveling. Her photos and stories from her check-ins make for wonderful updates while away.”
“John has been pet sitting, walking, and training our little beagle, Lexi for over two years now. She is always beyond excited to see him when he arrives. The time he spends with her each week his time well spent. She is a tired and contented dog when we arrive home. The pictures and report he provides are a wonderful extra. We feel very fortunate to have John take care of our pup.”
“Samantha is very professional, kind, and accommodating to your pet care needs. I felt very safe and assured leaving my cats with her. She will provide photos and detailed updates on your cats behavior with each visit. I personally really appreciate this and can’t recommend her enough- don’t hesitate to book with Sam :)”
“Very happy dog and owner. Great communication, my dog was in good hands. Thank you!”
“Sarah was wonderful! She went above and beyond to take care of our fur babies and the house. We highly recommend her to everyone. We will definitely be using her services again.”
About: I’ve done lots of dog and cat sitting, caring for friends and family’s pets of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments. I love spending time with and getting to know dogs and all their different personalities. I have a very flexible work-from-home schedule and though I’m often behind a screen I do get to get up and away for lots of fetch and walks and sniffs and cuddles. I have a large unfenced yard and we have a big fenced tennis court that is not used for tennis so it’s perfect for letting pups run and play, fetch, whatever. Also happy to do leashed walks around the yard for lots of sniffing and potty breaks. I live in a beautiful area with woods and I’m close to country back roads, so plan on longer walks either just with me or also alongside my dog, Disco. Disco isn’t usually interested in playing with other dogs so if your pup is one who likes to instigate lots of play repetitively with other dogs, we’ll have to do a meet and greet first to see if we think that it’d be a good fit. But he is great with other dogs who respect space. I can easily crate my own dog while I take yours out for potty breaks, yard walks, or long walks, if needed, but usually there’s no issue unless the other dog keeps trying and trying to play and doesn’t take a hint.
