“Mary Kay is amazing! My dog can get a bit anxious and she has taken the time to let him warm up to her before she puts him on a leash. She gives detailed updates and lots of pictures with each visit. She’s also been flexible with my work schedule. If I could rate her above 5 stars I would!”
“Marissa is AMAAAZING. She takes the absolute best care of our two pups. Our Boston Terrier puppy is high energy and so Marissa makes a point to not only exercise her physically but also mentally! She has excellent attention to detail and is incredibly reliable. Our doggos adore Marissa!!”
“Kennedy has taken care of my 3 dogs on numerous occasions, including a few overnight stays at our house. Our pups are always well taken care of while we’re gone and when we return they are just as happy as when we left! Kennedy also sends us numerous updates and pictures, which we really appreciate.”
“Lily has been so awesome with our dog, Kenai! He loves her and gets so excited for his walks with her twice a week. He is already doing better on his walks and seems to be learning a lot.”
“Sydney does a phenomenal job watching animals! She has watched my dog, Charli, numerous times and always ensures that she has a great experience. Syd goes above and beyond on the dog experience, always coming in with excited and happy energy. I will definitely have Sydney watch Charli again in the future!”
“Tristan has been AMAZING with my Shiba! Very patient and understanding with a breed that takes a little while to warm up to strangers.”
“Gianluca is the perfect person to help look after your loveable pups! He is very communicative, responsible and dependable. As a dog owner himself, he definitely understands what it takes to take care of a pet. He is gentle and loving and is equip to handle pets of any size.”
“I have three hyperactive dogs that are in training. Walking them is no easy task, but Randi is very attentive to my their needs. I highly recommend her!”
“I highly recommend Erica. She did a great job with our dog. She showed up on time, had awesome communication, and even sent some cute pictures while we were away!”
“Jeanette is just amazing. She spoils Maizy rotten with lots of love and treats are not bad either. Thanks so much for your flexibility and kindness.”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs, cats, and lizards for over ten years; I’ve trained my own puppies as well as those close to me. They naturally respond well to me. I do not shy away from large dogs. My schedule is incredibly flexible as I am a masters student in philosophy and most of my work is done at home. Because I am only on campus for three days a week my schedule is incredibly open. I can drive anywhere in the Windsor-tecumseh-lasalle area (farther if needed). I am only required to be on campus three hours on the days I do need to be there. I would never need to leave them alone for more than 5 hours and most days I wouldn’t even need to be gone that long. I am very attentive, affectionate, and spoiling of my own pets and can provide an extra level of love for your furbabies. Aside from typical pet care I can offer a stable environment and mood for your pets.
About: I’ve taken care of my everything (my cat) for almost 5 years with full of endless love and dedication with my family members and he became our everything that we sleep with him over the night and even have our meals all together but now I had to leave my cat since I’m in Canada :( My schedule is quite available on fridays,saturdays and sundays but I may be also available for other days,too since my schedule is based on my school. I already have 5 year experience of having and taking care of my cat and we are 3 of us in the whole house which is quite available for caring of pets.The house also have back and front yard.
“There is no doubt that Rosa would be an amazing dog walker and/or person to do drop-in visits. I have known Rosa for three years and she is an amazing individual overall and especially with dogs! The love Rosa has for her own dog is so immense and she truly treats him the best I have ever seen anyone treat their dog/pet, and this love translates over to any dog she interacts with. To say she loves dogs is probably an understatement, but I can’t think of any other way to put it – you’d have to know her in her element around these sweet four-legged friends. The overall happiness, health, and safety of a dog (whether her own or someone else’s) is always Rosa’s first priority, followed up by a commitment to and passion for training. With the breeds that Rosa has grown up with and/or owned, ongoing training is a crucial part of a dog’s happiness and social and behavioural success, so she continues to dedicate time to ensuring dogs’ mental and physical needs are met both through fun/play and through training activities. All dogs that meet Rosa seem to immediately love her which is such a beautiful thing to watch. When it comes to caring for other people’s dogs, Rosa always respects the boundaries and/or wants that the pet parents have set in place. She understands that consistency is extremely important for many (if not all) dogs, so the rules and boundaries that you have in place with/for your dog will always be adhered to while she is caring for your dog. Overall, Rosa is a very compassionate, understanding, and social individual who would make the best walker and/or service provider for your dog!”
“Julia took excellent care of my pup! He is usually very excitable on walks and Julia made sure to take a less busy route to minimize distractions. She recorded what happened on the walk, and is clearly very thoughtful in her care. I will absolutely be booking her again for future walks!”
About: I live in downtown Detroit and work from 9-5pm in my apartment and have the flexibility to work with you on hours for dog-walking, drop-in visits, etc. I have had dogs my whole life and love them all! Living downtown gives me the flexibility to stop in and let your pets out throughout the day. During this time of working from home, I do have meetings throughout the day but have free time that I can go on 30-minute walks throughout the work hours and work week. I love all animals and especially love caring for dogs. Please let me know if you have any questions about me to ensure that I'll take great care of your animals and treat them with all the love and attention they deserve.
About: My commitment to the well-being and happiness of your beloved pets is my main priority. My genuine love for animals drives me to go above and beyond, ensuring not only their physical needs but also their emotional comfort. I have experience in personalized pet care and creating a nurturing and familiar environment so your pet feels safe and comfy even when you can’t be there! Making their time away from you a truly enjoyable experience:) I am a college student athlete so I do have class as well and practice during the week but with that said I only have class a couple days a week and am free before and after practice, weekends I’m usually able to be free at any time :) There is a dog park just a 1 minute walk away, my apartment is pretty big so lots of room to lounge and play, there is also areas more private that just consist of grass and more of an open environment
“Lindsay is a wonderful, responsible young lady. She has a passion for animals as she loves getting to know new dogs. She is organized, loving and caring. She will be the first person to watch my dog!”
About: I am currently a Hospitality Business student at Michigan State with a true love for four-legged furry friends. As someone who was raised in a household of dogs, I have learned the importance of obedience, love, and fetch. I have attended police academy level training with my parents dogs and know the importance of holding down house rules. As someone who was raised with terriers and doodles, I know how much energy dogs have and how important it is for them to go out and have fun. I am available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for all your dog sitting needs. I would love the chance to take care of your pup and would be happy to put a little extra wag in your dog's tail!
“Colin P. is an excellent animal caregiver! He has watched my dog several times, and my dog absolutely loves him (possibly more than me). I always trust that my dog is in good hands when he is with Colin. He is a very caring and thoughtful person, and every dog I’ve seen him around can sense that about him. I call him the dog whisperer.”
