Julia was a kind and loving caregiver to our cat Ollie. He is energetic, so her willingness to play with him was much appreciated. Julia went above and beyond to communicate regularly with us. We would love to work with Julia again and highly recommend her!

Robert did a fantastic job watching my older cat. He was prompt and clear in all his communication and pleasant to work with. My cat takes daily medication and everything went smoothly. Would certainly have him cat sit again!

Lily is truly the best. I’m very anxious to leave our cats and she was so detailed and comprehensive in her care for them. She’s truly a professional! She was even able to get our shy guy out to play. We will definitely be repeat clients of hers!

michelle went above and beyond for her care with velma. I wish I could tip her more but this app tells me no. my (elusive) cat made a mess and michelle handled it without even complaining. and when I had a medical emergency required me to extend my trip, she kept caring for velma without batting an eye. i’m so grateful michelle! thank you. hopefully next time she’ll actually come out and play with you.

About: My love for animals has always been a huge part of who I am. I have grown up with many different kinds of animals and have had/currently have some of my own! I’ve owned a Saint Bernard who was 20 lbs when I brought him home at 10 weeks and grew into 165lbs of love. I’m comfortable with all sizes of dogs/pets. I currently work as a nurse, so I am very comfortable giving your pet any medications that they need while in my care :) My work schedule can be all over the place, but I usually have 3-4 days off during the week that I would love to fill with walking/playing with other furry friends! I have had pets who are very social and don’t need an introduction time, to animals who are very skittish and need lots of patience. I will always listen to you about how to best approach your pet, just as I would want for my pets :)

About: I grew up volunteering at a dogsledding kennel and eventually started working at the summer camp that was run there. In my 5 years there I learned a lot about exercising, caring for, and training both Siberian and Alaskan huskies as well as the farm dogs there. I gained a lot of experience caring for dogs with medical issues, older dogs and training puppies. I currently work as a nanny/household manager for a family with a black lab and have been working alongside them to help train her in better manners, specifically around food. I also make sure that she is fed and exercised every day. I have a very flexible schedule in my current job, leaving me with time for pet care every morning until the early afternoon, and then again in the later evening. I also have availability to do overnights at the pet owner's residence both during the week and weeknights. I love to bond with pets and gain their trust. I make sure to read their signals and respect their boundaries while also respecting their owner's rules and boundaries. I'm very big on giving love and attention if dogs want it and taking them out to go on walks and get all their wiggles out. When in someone else's residence, I make sure to respect their space and their home.

Great to have Brandon take care of our cat overnight. He managed giving medication and playing laser tag! Kept us updated with photos and feedback. He’ll be on our list to help pet sit again. (And our dog really likes him too)

Hailey is an excellent pet sitter and I would recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their animals! Hailey has spent lots of time with my very nervous and slow to warm up pup. Hailey is patient and understanding with her, she always makes her feel so comfortable and Hailey is truly one of my dog's favorite people in the world. Hailey is responsible and professional and will love your pet like her own. I highly recommend Hailey as a dog walker/pet sitter.

Jessica has been an incredible help caring for our cat post Ortho surgery. She’s given her oral medicines and played with our cat in a gentle way to help distract her from her injuries. The special attention she gives to the pets under her care is everything you want from a sitter. Thank you Jess!
