Jessica is so kind, fun, and clearly is meant to be around animals in one way or another. My boys were THRILLED to see her every morning. She was helping me out as I’m dealing with cancer - her flexibility and understanding nature helped me trust her in my home and with my boys. Book her!

Austin is one of the few people I trust watching my dog. When he watches my dog he has sent me fun photos and videos. He is so caring and companionate! I am never worried about leaving my dog with him because I know he is safe. Austin also has two cats of his own that are super spoiled and he plans on getting a dog in the future.

Eva is great with our two dogs. She has dog sat overnight, taken them for walks, and dropped in multiple times. They are always so excited to see her. I recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter.

Chelsie you went above and beyond to make sure my pups were treated with royalty. I have never seen my dogs get so excited to see someone, not even when I get home. Chelsie supplied lots of pictures of the walks and the most detailed summary which was always a pleasure to read. She really cares and extremely thoughtful, would never hesitate to book with her anytime I need help. Thank you so much Chelsie!

About: I have been around puppy dogs all of my life. From Saint Bernards to chihuahuas to basset hounds to mini dachshunds and everything in between. I am also the proud grannie of a Dutch shepherd. Having lost my 13-year-old companion a few years ago my heart is finally ready to help others take care of their loved ones. I am currently working full-time downtime and am available for early morning and evening potty breaks and walks. Depending on the location I can pop in over lunch. I am also available to stay overnight with your little one. I believe furry ones are more comfortable in their own homes. I strive to provide as much normalcy as possible to their routine. They will miss you, facetime is always an option for them to hear your voice.

About: I have lived with dogs 20+ years of my life. My partner, Anthony, and I currently have 2 dogs of our own who are both rescues. Arthur is our 6 year old playful, loving lab mix and Taz is our 4 month old sassy pit mix puppy! We love caring for pets and are excited to spread the love to more doggy friends! You can count on us to be reliable, respectful, engaged, and loving to your pets. We will ensure that they get exercise and the love they need while under our care. We will make sure the environment is safe for all pets and make sure your pet has access to food and water at all times. We work from home full time and will make sure your pet has the necessary potty breaks they need and will not be left in a kennel all day long. We love dogs and are excited to provide a safe + comfortable place for your pet so you can enjoy your time away from home knowing your dog(s) is/are in good hands. Anthony and I work from home, which makes pet care fit very easily into our daily and weekly routine. We have 2 dogs of our own and we never leave them home alone longer than 4 hours. We have a partially fenced in yard. The yard is safe and a great size to give your pet ample space to run around and exercise.

I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Leah for the position of pet caretaker. I have known Leah for my whole life and have consistently been impressed with their dedication, compassion, and professionalism when it comes to the care of animals. Leah has a natural rapport with pets of all kinds, and I have personally witnessed their ability to connect with, calm, and care for animals in a variety of settings. Whether it's providing routine care, handling special dietary needs, or managing pets with health concerns, Leah has always shown a level of attentiveness and expertise that is truly commendable. One of the qualities that sets Leah apart is their proactive approach to pet care. They do not hesitate to go the extra mile to ensure the well-being of the animals in their charge. This level of initiative is something that I believe any pet owner would greatly appreciate. Furthermore, Leah's communication skills are excellent. They keep pet owners updated with regular reports and are always available to discuss any concerns or questions that may arise. Their reliability and trustworthiness have made them a go-to for pet care among our community. In conclusion, I am confident that Leah would be a valuable asset to your team and provide the highest level of care to the pets they look after. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information or clarification. Warm regards, -Kylie Krauss

Michael has watched my pets countless times! I always feel confident knowing my pups are in safe, kind hands with him. I would highly recommend him to sit or walk your animals. He’s got a big backyard where they can play. He has sent many pics of walks around his neighborhood as well. Give him a shot, he won’t disappoint!

About: I’ve have previously worked at a pet store close to two years as the animal manager. I was in charge for making sure all animals always received proper care and met all the standards the store set I’m currently working a part time job and a college student. My schedule is very flexible as long as I have a few days notice. I’m available on weekday morning to early afternoons. I have close to two acres of backyard without no fence at my home, giving my pets plenty of space to run around and play.
