Amanda did a great job taking care of our Border Terrier, Kimi, for five days for the first time. She dropped in several times a day to feed, walk, and play with Kimi. We got pictures from each visit for peace of mind. We would hire Amanda again.

Stevie is awesome! She was able to watch over our cats while we were in Ohio for almost 2 weeks. She helped make it less stressful for us and our kitties! Would definitely recommend and we plan to use her for future needs!

There was a mix-up with keys and Rhiana was initially unable to get into my apartment. She handled it professionally and thankfully we were able to resolve the issue. She sent a lot of pictures and my cat was obviously took to her and was happy to have her there. I highly recommend Rhiana and hope she is available the next time I have to go out of town!

I came home to two happy contented pets (dog and cat). Carolyn took great pictures and reassured me that they were well cared for while I was away for a couple of days. I am seriously immunocompromised so I particularly appreciated her willingness to be Covid cautious while she was in my home. I will definitely hire her again.

I've known Christina for many years and she's always taken good care of both her plants and animals! She raised and cared for her Golden Retriever, Autumn, through old age and she loved that dog more than anything. When I had dogs years ago, she was always so great with them and I wouldn't hesitate to ask her to pet sit for me! Highly recommend, you won't find a kinder more attentive care giver for your pet!

About: I'm a pet person! My favorite part of caring for dogs is the walks, whether it's just a a few minutes or a few miles. My experience is as follows: ☆Caring for my family's cat and dog, from youth/kitten to senior age ☆Pet-sitting for friend's cats and dogs ☆Volunteering in a high-volume animal shelter ☆Volunteering with a puppy rescue (walking + working on leash training) I've cared for cats and dogs in all stages, from puppies and kittens to senior animals. I'm always open to learn to care for animals of all kinds and grow my experience! I have open availability for walks and overnight stays! I'm currently not equipped to board in my home but hope to in the future. I'm new to Charlottesville and hope to build community + support myself through pet care until my summer job starts. Keeping a safe and stress-free environment for your pet is my priority! I'll follow your lead in terms of feeding times, walk length + route, and crate procedures to make your pets experience as safe and consistent as possible.

She loves being around dogs and they love being around her. Rosalie has shown and proved that she is more than capable of handling pets.

Saskia is a dog whisperer! The dogs love spending time and being cared for by her. She is very responsible and follows the pet care requirements for walks, food and giving medication. My dogs are at ease with her and they enjoy her visits and walks. She understands the health needs of my older dog and she is encouraging when she walks my anxious younger dog. I would recommend her services and your dogs (and cats) will feel happy, well taken care of and safe with her.

Mac is an extremely responsible, attentive, and caring pet caretaker. Having observed him around others' pets and raising and training his border collie, Mae, from her time as a puppy, I can attest to Mac's patience with dogs of all ages and energy levels. Whether the dogs are rambunctious or docile, Mac is able to match and accommodate their energy levels while still fostering a safe and comfortable environment for them. Additionally, I have watched and appreciated Mac's love for cats. Simply put, he is a pet guy through and through. He can do it all, and I would trust Mac with my own pets (and I encourage you to consider doing so as well!).

I’ve known Christine for 6 years. She is amazing with my dog! She is prompt, responsible, and always ready to help. My pupper is a sensitive older citizen that requires a little extra love. Christine gives that and more. She is great!
