“This was our second time leaving our dog in the caring home of Danielle. And yet still are blown away with how she connects with our dog. We will be definitely staying in touch for next time we are visiting Santa Barbara. Thank you so much!”
Alicia & Max V.
“Loved having my little girl doggy board with Alicia! She took wonderful care of her and she was happy and healthy when I picked her up. I will definitely have her stay with Alicia again. :))”
“Jessica was great to work with! She kept us frequently updated and gave us a sense of relief that our dog was in good hands. She was easy to communicate with and coordinate drop off & pick up. We’ll definitely book with her again ?”
“Kaelynn loves animals and especially adores dogs. I think she would do an amazing job taking care of them because is very responsible, empathetic and energetic. She took our dog for regular walks and enjoyed them as much as the dog! I also witnessed her dog sit on several occasions and she always did an excellent job. I honestly believe Kaelynn’s work ethic, caring nature and sense of responsibility make her a perfect fit for Rover.”
“Jessica went over and above to take care of our Teddi, even collecting her from our wedding! Would definitely recommend Jessica, she is very nurturing and sweet, making Teddi feel at home.”
“Carrie S. was absolutely amazing. This family was attentive, responsive, and LOVES animals. Very responsible and professional with all interactions about my fur baby! I would 100% use their services again and recommend to all my friends and family that need a sitter for their fur babies! Thank you so much!”
“James is wonderful! Hunter loved him and he took such good care of our little guy while we were away. He followed all our instructions and asked questions where needed to make sure everything went smoothly. We will definitely use James again and would recommend him to anyone who needs a great dog sitter in town!”
“Vivian and her husband were great with our aging Frenchie! He was comfortable and cared for and we got a lot of updates/photos along the way! Will use them again for our pet sitter needs!”
“Alejandra has watched my 2 cats while I was away on vacation many times. She is extremely caring and diligent in caring for my babies. She always sends us photos and goes out of her way to play with them and show them love in addition to providing the essentials. I highly, highly recommend her to take after your pets if you need a sitter!”
“Easy to find, flexible and loved on our dog. We are only in town for a short time and it is great knowing Margaux is safe and loved when we wanted to do human only activities.”
“Ryan has been my "go-to pet guy" for years and he is the only pet-sitter I trust with my fur babies. He is one of the only people I've ever met (present company excepted of course) who is not only a bona-fide cat whisperer but also skillfully and lovingly can handle the most "challenging" dogs--such as my own lovable canine wrecking ball--on first meeting. He is a lifelong animal person and--prior to moving to Santa Barbara--spent time volunteering for animal shelters and cat socialization organizations in Los Angeles and the Bay Area in addition to pet-sitting. Also, unlike some passionate animal-people I've met in the past, Ryan is also a 'people person': He's very easy to talk to and just has great energy--very warm and compassionate. I first hired him years ago(pre pet sitting apps!) by word of mouth shortly after moving to town. I needed someone pretty much immediately to house and pet sit for a few days as I had to travel due to a family emergency. He had been in my position before as the worried pet-parent short-notice traveler and understood both how nerve-wracking it could be to leave your pets and home in the hands of a virtual stranger. He assured me he would be a prompt communicator and would go above and beyond to ensure my pets were loved and cared for, my home safe and clean, and that I would be kept informed of all of it. When I met him to give him the keys prior to catching a cab from work to the airport, he showed me a video of him playing with and cuddling his (adorable, spoiled-rotten) fur-babies in his lovely, tidy house, which also eased my mind considerably. Since that first weekend, Ryan has performed a plethora of pet-related services for me and others I've referred. He can do pretty much anything needed. In addition to pet/housesitting, he will shuttle pets to vet/grooming appointments/relocation to new homes or vacation houses as well take them on walks/day trips/dog parks. He also offers a full-care "hotel service" as well as daycare/playdates/socialization experiences/grooming/medication dispensing/convalescence. There's a spacious, fully fenced front and backyard, lots of toys and enough spare rooms for pets who don't like to share with others or are convalescing as availability permits. He is especially attentive towards dogs and cats with separation anxiety issues, as well as owners with the same malady :)--Ryan can send pics/videos and reports as often as you'd like. He is also super flexible about changes to schedule, and responds very quickly to last minute requests. All in all, you can't go wrong. I'm sure you/your pets will be just as satisfied as I've been with his TLC/five star pet services!”
“I couldn’t have asked for a better couple for my pups to stay with! They provided all the care and attention my dogs needed while also taking them on lots of outings. I could tell how happy my dogs were in every photo as she kept me very updated. They will definitely be back someday!”
“Amazing, Thanks Tyler!”
“Kara is amazing! She is kind, has great communication and our dog, Tessa, really seemed to like staying with her. This was my first time leaving Tessa with someone else and Kara’s caring personality really put me at ease. I would recommend Kara to anyone and I look forward to using her services again if needed.”
“Thank you for watching my fluffs while I was in town! I was super nervous about leaving my two with a stranger and she made herself available to meet beforehand easing my stress and allowing me to see how they interacted first. She was great with them and put up with my little girl's nervousness. Pixel and Voxie were well taken care of. Siobhan made it a great first experience with the service. If I'm in Santa Barbra again I know who I want as my doggo sitter.”
“Jorrit and his family clearly loved and cared for our Silver Labrador, Ollie. They were careful about meeting her/us to make sure we were a good fit for each other, and then treated Ollie as though she was their own. It was fun to see photos of their outings around the walking paths and the beach. Highly recommend!”
“We felt very confident leaving Luna with Vanessa. Vanessa gave Luna her allergy tablet without any problems. Luna was a happy girl in the photos Vanessa sent. We will definitely call Vanessa again😍”
“Tina was very attentive and caring with my senior dog. My dog has medication needs and food issues and she took care of everything. My dog doesn't usually like other dogs, but she got along well with Tina's dog! She was in contact daily with pictures and updates, and when my dog had an issue she noticed right away and contacted us so we could discuss it. Thanks Tina!”
“Grace did a fantastic job taking care my corgi Bailey. She made sure he got plenty of exercise and even took him out to socialize which he loves. He even enjoyed a dog at the office meeting new dog friends and getting some work done. I felt confident and comforted by her excellent care and attention to detail for Bailey. We will definitely be booking Grace again!”
About: I love dogs, especially active ones which like to walk and play. I've been around Aussies for a long time and know them and their needs well. I have a full time job which takes me on extended travels but when I'm at home, I'm only here and having a pet around would make my day. I have a fully fenced back yard with lots of room and a seperate, closed off fenced large area . Your pet has its own area for sleeping in my house.
