Maddie is a wonderful pet sitter! We have two large breed dogs, one of which is still a puppy and a handful! She was able to handle their hyper-ness. She also sent us pictures all throughout the week! Although we missed them so much, it put our minds at ease that we had someone as great as Maddie to watch our boys!

Mackenzie was great with Corby! She even ran the washing machine with sheets and towels and had all folded when we returned. Would definitely have Mackenzie watch Corby again!

Konnie was absolutely amazing!!!! Our dogs were super happy with her and she checked in with us everyday. We knew they were in good hands when she came over for the initial meet and greet, and we were right. They were in great hands! She also left our house clean and organized. We are new to the area and don’t know very many people here, so having a stranger come to our house and watch our dogs was a little unnerving at first. After meeting Konnie, we both felt much better and we will for sure use her services again! She is absolutely fantastic! All 4 of us in the family highly recommend her! Thank you sooooooooo much, Konnie!!!!! ?

My dog hates people, but she adores Mary! She is truly the pet whisperer! Not only did Mary make me feel comfortable leaving Talu for the weekend but Mary was quick to respond when I asked how Talula was doing and she also sent me pictures of my dog on and off the whole weekend. 10/10 would recommend! We will be using Mary for any of our trips long or short. It helps to have someone with your dog that loves them like they were their own! Thank you Mary!

Took care of my 16 year old Shih-Tzu. Pebbles is quiet and blind but she still needs help getting around and is very finicky about eating. Lilly helped her finish off her antibiotics and was very good at keeping me updated. Lilly genuinely cares and is willing to give your dog the love and attention they need. Would call again. 👍

There’s no one who takes caring for animals as a passion more than Jessica. Whenever I need a sitter for my rottys I call her and they get more excited to see her than me sometimes. She walks them feeds them and plays with them and you can tell they love her for that when I’m away on business. Definitely a 5 star person for my 5 star babies

Rebecca always takes amazing care of our dog and home while we are away. She really loves animals and it shows. She sends photos and updates so we know they both are having a good time. In addition, our home is as clean as when we leave. Rebecca is the best person to care for your dog and home. Highly recommend!

Holly has watched my Maine coon and tuxedo cat. On more than one occasion. Both cats are very timid and do not warm up easily to people. They warmed right up to her and were sleeping with/on her…I think they could sense that she’s truly an animal lover..;) she kept the litter box extremely clean, as well as feeding them timely as I had asked freshwater was provided daily as well along with playing with with both girls and giving treats. She sent videos and pictures daily. It was so reassuring. My girls were so well taken care of. I live in apartment and could totally trust her with my key fob and locking and closing up the apartment she is fabulous! I highly recommend her to watch and care for your fur babies. I will totally be using her again when I leave for my trip to Mexico!

I cannot say enough about how professional and caring Carolyn is. She did day and overnight dog sitting for my two Wheaten Terriers (3 days). One is my dogs is a very "active" puppy and the other is a senior dog. Each day Carolyn sent me updates with pictures and videos. This was my first experience hiring a dog sitter and I will definitely hire Carolyn again.

We have a golden retriever named Lola. Every time Ashley is around Lola, Lola gets the most loving affection from her. Only true dog lovers show the attention every dog deserves. I also got to meet Ashely’s pup. I knew instantly that he was her baby. A proud momma. It a joy to see Ashley with pet dogs. As they seem to love the attention and she also enjoys it just as much.

Delaina took great care of my dog over the Christmas weekend. It was comforting to know that if I wanted to see him she was willing to video call me. I will definitely reach out to her whenever I'm visiting Cleveland because I know that my Duke is in good hands when staying with her.

About: I've lived with dogs since the day my parents brought me home from the hospital. I grew up with 2 cocker spaniels, once they passed we rescued a pure bred collie from a Collie rescue. When i finally moved out I rescued a dog of my own Blue. Blue is a husky, toy fox terrior & shepard mix! I have also rescued many golden retrievers and have found them their furever homes. You can say I'm a CRAZY dog lover! Ive been surrounded by dogs of all sizes my entire life. I'm a stay at home mom fulltime. I'm looking for extra work and things to do. My availability is 7 days a week at all hours of the day. I have a fenced in yard and a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. I have a fur baby of my own to keep yours company. And if your dog doesn't like other dogs I also have the availability to take my dog to my parents house just 2 streets over while I care for your dog individually. I have a crate if your dog needs that private separation. My yard has lots of shade on our covered back deck.

Charity was my saving grace. She had a so caring and loving. The meet and greet was more than I would have expected. She took notes to really understand the routine my animals are used to. Additionally, my dog was fighting an illness prior to me leaving and it progressed very quickly. She went above and beyond to get him to my vet and ensure he was comforted when he wasn’t feeling well. I can’t thank her enough. The best decision ever was to book with her.

About: I've grown up with fuzzies and cared for them all. Tended and loved bunnies both big and small, pups young and old, cats timid and bold. Regardless of pet, I will treat 'em like gold. Loved on and spoiled they'll be sorry to go, I'll keep them quite cozy and you in the know. Caring for fur-babies requires love, understanding, and flexibility. Each pet comes with her own needs and personality. With four dogs (Diamond, Patrick, Trish, and Dusty), four cats (Joel, Hibbleton, Joe, and Dom), and a bunny named Thumper in my care, I've had a little bit of practice in nourishing each individual purr-sonality. Once we get the schedules sorted, I'll be sure to give your loved one the same consideration and I think we'll get along just fine. Hello, and thank you for meeting me here! If I'm at your house, your fur-baby will be let out every 4-8 hours unless otherwise needed. At least one daily walk is guaranteed so your little one can catch up on all the neighborhood gossip; if there's a dog park nearby, I'll take him to meet up with his friends. If you'll provide me with your dog's dietary needs, any medications, and routines, I'll do my best to make sure that he's feelin' just as fly as he would be if you were there. Now if your pup chooses to stay at my lovely establishment, I would request a list of your pups needs, medications, and routines. After the business part is sorted, I have for your pupper two yards; one for business, one for fun. My house has two floors, the first floor is all his. The rules are pretty chill. Pets are allowed on the furniture, food and water are freely available, tricks are rewarded with treats, and if he's a well-behaved gentle-pup, bedtime is kennel-free. However, if you have different boundaries set for your pet I'll be happy to ensure that your little one minds his manners during his stay. Oh, one more thing: I am the tug-o-war champion, though your dog is welcome to try and take my title.

Sarah is awesome and took great care of Karmann! She got to go to some of her favorite places and when we got back we could tell she really enjoyed spending time with Sarah! Sarah’s always quick to respond any time we text, we’ve already booked her second trip with Karmann!
