Bryan is just what I have been searching for in a dog sitter! I have a complex crew of 3 rescue dogs, all different ages with some minor typical rescue pup issues. At our meet and greet it was clear my dogs trusted him, and after their weekend together even my more challenging and slow to warm up pittie had given in! He’s great with them and was awesome with communication and updates, a very respectful house guest and the best dog sitter! We will definitely be using his great services again soon!! Thanks so much for taking such great care of my fur babies!!

Carla was great with our two dogs and very patient with their different personalities. She kept me updated with everything and I think our kitchen was cleaner than when we'd left it. The pups are happy and we will definitely work with Carla again!

Jennifer is a tremendous dog sitter. We've left our dog Lentil in her care countless times without concern. She is trustworthy, reliable, kind, caring, and will treat your dog like they are her own (including all the extra snuggles, treats, pets, walks, and dog park excursions). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking the very best and most loving dog sitter!

Julie could not have been more attentive to the needs of our (very) geriatric schnoodle while we were away for 4 nights. He has a hard time standing to eat so she spoon fed him. He has a hard time with his incontinence so she changed his doggie diaper. He can't be left to wander in the house because he is mostly blind and totally deaf (he gets lost in corners). She took excellent care of him and sent us updates and photos. It was NOT an easy assignment. I HIGHLY recommend her!

Rob watches my black lab Harken whenever my wife and I leave town. He's a family friend that grew up with labs and he loves our dog just as much as we do. Whenever he watches our dog, Harken, he sends photos and takes him on long walks around Portland to the Eastern Prominade where he throws a tennis ball until my dog is content, which is no small feat. Our dog, Harken, starts to cry in the car every time we pass Rob's house because he want's to go over and visit. Rob's our favorite dog sitter.

Sami was such a fantastic sitter for our dog Darwin- someone who is communicative, responsible and extremely flexible. Sami gave our pup everything he needed, including meds, and she kept us informed of any issues. We’ll definitely be booking Sami again!

Our dog, Sam, adores Celeste! The best review I can give is from seeing how he barely pays attention to us leaving because he's so happy to have his friend Celeste there. She is a wonderful person to have as a resource for when we go away. She is also great at communicating and is very reliable. Celeste is our (and Sam's) preferred dog watcher!

Amelia took amazing care of Mabel while I needed to travel for the week. She was incredibly communicative with updates throughout each day. I appreciated her taking the time to take my pup on nice long walks as well. she checks in frequently and I would highly recommend Ameia to anyone looking for help with their pup while they are away!

We can't say enough about how thoughtful and wonderful Lily is! We had a difficult time finding a sitter for our 18+ year old rescue pups. They have lots of quirks and need several medications throughout the day - and lots of bathroom trips. Lily took care of them with so much kindness and grace. We were able to take a family trip without worry - her updates and photos were so sweet and informative - and we look forward to more in the future now that we have found someone we can trust. We highly recommend Lily for all your pet care needs. Thank you so much for the incredible care, Lily! You're amazing. :)

Andrew in a word was superb! He paid very very close loving attention to my cat, Bug. I received daily narratives and photos of her and of them playing. He was careful and accurate about her medication and paid close attention to my instructions about food and feeding. He also kept my home beautifully—he was very clean and neat, to say the least. I could not ask for a better cat and house sitter. I cannot say enough about his performance. I will absolutely have him return. I could see how happy Bug was when I returned—outside of her initial expected complaints about my absence! Andrew is a star! I felt lucky to have found him.

We just had Katey stay for 9 nights at my home with our Lab, Henry and my cat, Kitty. She did an amazing job. She walked Henry twice a day and took care of watering our garden and taking in mail and packages. She sent great pics and reports each day, which I loved! A most fun tidbit: We recently moved from Pennsylvania to Maine, and she actually used to be my petsitter in Pennsylvania! She just happened to move to Maine a year before us! Small world wonders… We’re so happy to have her as our petsitter once again!

PJ was wonderful communicating both before and during this first pet sitting visit. He lived in with our almost one year old kitten, embraced her routines, care and activities, including using outside time on harness, and sent photos and and regularly. We arrived back to a very content kitty, a clean house and we are enthusiastic to use him for future trips.

Devonn took great care of our two dogs, Jack and Sadie, while we were gone. She sent us daily updates with pictures, and we never worried at all. I would definitely have Devonn house sit with our dogs again. ?
