“Gino treats my princess with the best care. He is always on time & he is great w/ dogs”
“John has looked after our dogs multiple times as my partner and I travel out of the country every year. Our pups love him and he was excellent in communicating with us. He was consistent with walking, feeding, and spending time with our high-energy dogs! Our home has always been spotless after we’ve returned (no accidents!) and the dogs get excited every time he’s come back to sit for us. Great track record and excellent with both needy, energetic, and elderly animals!”
“Jeannie is amazing! So caring, knowledgeable and communicative. My dog Eowyn has gotten regular walks from her and has made such improvements all around. Beyond that, when there has been health concerns she has communicated right away. Highly recommended.”
“Last-minute booking and did a great job with Bailee”
“Tamaria and family made sure Nessa had good exercise while my husband and I were away. We are very thankful for the help provided and we will be rebooking.”
About: I love my fur babies & believe they deserve the best, & yours do too! I have no kids & work only weekend nights, so I have time to dedicate to my pups & yours. I have experience with multiple dogs at once, dogs of many sizes & even reactive pups. I have subscribed to gentle training methods like clicker training, positive reinforcement, and Training Between the Ears. I’m available to walk & play with your pups those weekdays you’re busy at work! I have 2 big dogs of my own, so I'm used to caring for multiple dogs at once. I’m very active & live near many trails I’m familiar with, & dog parks (only if that is something you are comfortable with.) I have two friendly dogs, plenty of stimulating dog puzzles and toys, so your pups will be well entertained! My apartments have 2 different off leash dog areas, & I’m minutes from a 40 acre off leash dog park that is frequented by many professional dog walkers. If dog parks aren’t your thing, I’m familiar with & walk many trails that I take my dogs on (on leash, of course.)
“Hunter took such great care of my dog. Very attentive and was great with updates. Thank you Hunter, we will be using his services again soon.”
“Katy has been helping us with our pup Walter since he was born. She is reliable and playful which makes dog mom and pup so happy!! Walter runs to greet her when she comes by! I would only trust her with our boy and would highly recommend her”
“Brígida pretty great , very reliable and my pups took to her right away/ she definitely will be continued dog walker for me”
“Hello, This is the perfect job for Mary! She is the DOGGIEST person I have ever known. Dogs take to her immediately everywhere she goes. They feel her good heart Actually, all animals do. Not just dogs. One time we traveled to Ireland and there was an abandoned donkey who was tied up on a short rope near a fallen down castle. Mary wanted to stop the car to see him and within 2 minutes they were best soul mates. I know that he felt her love so much. Mary has two dogs of her own that she takes amazing care of like they are her children. Mary is very responsible and would be sure to keep all the pets safe and happy. I really can't think of anyone better qualified and she would be sooo thrilled to be doing this work.”
“Noah took such amazing care of our Benny boy while we were away! While we had a house sitter, we needed someone to help with our energetic doggo while we were gone as he can get destructive. Walks with Noah were a game changer and we came home to a happy and tired dog. We’ll definitely be using Noah again in the future!!”
About: I have taken care of pets for friends and family for many years, checking in on pets from cats, dogs, birds, and sugar gliders. I’ve mainly cared for dogs out of the lot, but am comfortable with each. I currently work at a K12 after school program and am going back to school for my MA in counseling, and am looking to care for pets over the weekend as a lovely break from the weekly routine. I would love to walk dogs, check in a on pet, or do overnight care. My current landlord does not allow pets, so I am looking to get my puppy loving fix through caring for them on weekends 🥰 I love to take time to build a bond with your pet, so more I am open to a building a consistent schedule if you are looking for someone regular. I am comfortable with a range of dogs and sizes, and am comfortable with all types of care including feeding, bathing, walking, and more.
“Heather has been great with my dog Brooklyn, she always sends cute pictures and a little update on what they did, which I really appreciate :) Highly recommend!”
“Susan has been so helpful with our dog. Her weekly walks have been so consistent.”
About: I’ve trained twin puppies and taken care of their parents for years. I have raised a cat of my own, and specialize in litter training. I’m at home most of the week and have spare time and energy. Since I like to stay fit and move around, taking care of pets helps get extra exercise in! I have a large crate if needed for pets small to medium size. Also a large neighborhood for long walks, grass area in front of home.
“Stephanie was so nice and easy to work with, especially as this was my first time using a dog walker. I look forward to our future bookings, especially because JoJo was very excited and happy when she brought him home!”
“Jonte is always very caring and very sweet to our Dog Rocky. When she comes to pick up her son from Daycare and is greeted by Rocky, she doesn't ignore him, she always acknowledges him and lets him smell her and say hello. She will take her time to pet him and talks to him. I know if i every need a dog sitter or someone to walk my dog I wouldn’t hesitate to contact her.”
