Tara was beyond amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter for our two pups. She sent updates and checked in regularly and I didn't have to worry about them at all the entire week we were gone. Our girls miss her and we can't wait to have her come back and hang out with them again soon. Thank you, Tara!

About: I have taken care of dogs for 10 years. Love taking walks and able to give meds. I am very sensitive to a dogs feelings and enjoy seeing them happy. I'll do whatever it takes. I am retired so I have plenty of time to spend and play with my furry friends! I'll be staying at your home, so I will stay close in the community. I also love to help people with their garden! I am great at following all instructions given by the owner. I take them on long walks, playing fetch and cuddling up on the couch with them.

100% recommend Alexzandria!! From the time I started messaging her she asked all the right questions about my dogs. She was very flexible and communicated well! I got daily updates without prompt! I was worried about finding someone for 2 dogs, especially one being a puppy but this worked out perfectly!

Domenique is a loving pet parent and cares about every animal she encounters. Besides dogs, I have seen her work with all kinds of animals from small baby birds to giant pigs and each gets the same amount of love and attention. I would not hesitate for a second to trust her with any pet I have and I know everyone that knows her feels the same.

I left my pups in Rachel's care for 2 weeks as I was out of town and Rachel made sure to update me every day on the dogs with photos and all! She clearly took care in their health and wellbeing as well as kept them enriched with play and walks. 10/10 would hire again

About: I have been around animals my whole life and I enjoy giving them all the love they deserve. While I have no pets of my own, I would love to take care of yours. As a music teacher, my hours are flexible and allow me to maximize time with your pets. I hike daily and would be delighted to have your furry friend as my walking companion. In addition to caring for your furry friend, I am also happy to bring in your mail, take out your trash bins, water your plants and attend to any other household needs in your absence.

We would work with Jenilee again. She did a meet & greet and asked good questions before we went out of town. She sent photos of the pets each day and was flexible with our return time on her last daysince we were driving. She kept us updated and cleaned up after one of the dogs got into the garbage. She also responded to text messages and questions before and during her stay.

Suzanna is an excellent caregiver for a variety of pets. She has looked after my dogs, horses, chickens, goats and some hostile roosters. She is responsible and thinks on her feet. Nothing fazes her with the animals and I would recommend her to anyone.

She was great with my dogs, especially my guard dog who usually has a hard time with people he doesn’t know. She was willing to come meet them beforehand to get them accustomed to her, and she sent me pictures everyday with constant updates. I would HIGHLY recommend her to watch your animals. She is so good with them!

About: Hello! My unique life story has brightly defined all aspects of my wonderful life and I am so thankful to get to live this journey! The story of my maverick, talented, and philanthropic grandpa can be found in the 2007 film documentary Surfwise! His passion, wisdom, and empathy birthed an entire family of amazing artists, including my multi-talented singing father, my dancing and master healer sister Delilah, and me and my skilled song-writing mom who have written a jazz album called Snow Day! Us four together as a family provide health coaching, dance and music therapy, surf instruction, and the highest animal and child care. I'm a highly devoted caretaker, health worker, and observant "canary in the coal mine" for all, human and animal. I hold all of our healths and longevity in the absolute highest regard and I have helped countless people overcome chronic illness and addiction thus far! Thank you for reading. I can't wait to start adding your children and fur children into my family circle and heart as if they were my own. I already love you all! I will offer the absolute best care possible to your entire family! Two years ago I became a group dog-walker for an amazing Oakland East Bay business called Doggy Lama and there I clocked countless hours with so many intelligent and beautiful dogs, including so many new breeds to me. Several of my dogs had severe afflictions of anxiety and I am very proud of the fact that I was able to greatly turn their lives around in our time together....I was rewarded in buckets of love, joy, and appreciation that will last forever. With all my love, Davida 💐 In conjunction with my other work as a personal contractor, I am available 24/7 for Rover. Unfortunately, I cannot board, but I am available to be at your place for any period of time. I am a long-time professional housesitter and love to take on overnight and live-in opportunities! I thoroughly clean, maintain, and care for your home as if your home was my own! I quickly adapt and settle in! However, I uphold an environmental health score standard for the houses I watch...Briefly I will tell you that I demand: No drugs, no smoking, no excessive candle-burning, and no spraying or diffusing of any other scents or aerosols.

5 stars for Dani! She took good care of our two dogs in our home for a week - the props was for n their response when we got home- they were mellow and content (historically they are whimpering and won’t leave our sides). We appreciated some photos during and her quick responses to our occasional check ins during our travels. Dani kept our home tidy and even stripped the guest bed before leaving. She was both attentive and responsible . Scheduling her care again very soon!

Simply a great person to care for your pets! I have both a dog and cats and Jacob takes great care of all of them. He treats them as if they’re his own and takes the time to pay attention to their needs and individual personality. I have had zero issues with leaving my fur babies in Jacob’s care!

I can't say enough positive things about Isaac as a dog sitter! He has been taking care of my husky, TJ, for quite some time now, and I couldn't be happier with the level of care and attention he provides. Isaac is incredibly reliable and always ensures TJ's safety and well-being. One of the things I appreciate most about Isaac is that he takes TJ to Fiesta Island, a beautiful dog-friendly island, where he can run and play off-leash for miles. It's obvious that Isaac truly cares about TJ's happiness and health. Every time I pick TJ up, he's exhausted but so happy from all the exercise he's had. Isaac also goes above and beyond by providing healthy collagen snacks to protect TJ's coat. As a husky, TJ's coat is an important part of his health, and I'm so grateful that Isaac takes this into consideration. Additionally, Isaac does some training with TJ to ensure that he comes back upon command and is well-behaved. I've noticed a significant improvement in TJ's temperament and behavior since Isaac started working with him. Overall, I can't recommend Isaac enough as a dog sitter. He is reliable, caring, and attentive, and TJ absolutely loves spending time with him. If you're looking for a dog sitter who will go above and beyond to ensure your dog's happiness and well-being, look no further than Isaac!
