We have used Rachelle a few times now. Twice for day trips and most recently for several days and over nights. My animals bonded with her instantly. Even my cat that’s can not be bothered to like anyone loves Rochelle. I never worry about them when she’s with them. She seems to really care about the animals. Beyond that she leaves my apartment as she found it no matter how much I tell her to make herself at home. We highly recommend her and will continue to use her in the future!

Emily was such a wonderful house/dog-sitter for our middle-aged anxious pup! She read all of our (extensive, detailed) instructions, asked us good questions, and then did a wonderful job updating us on how our dog was doing while we were gone. She was highly communicative, friendly, and respectful and we look forward to booking her again!

Devin was truly phenomenal with my senior dog who can be quite a handful. He clearly has a presence that dogs find trustworthy and safe. I will definitely reach out to him the next time I need a sitter. People this reliable, conscientious, and just an overall joy to be around are hard to come by. Book him!!

Allison was a great house and pet sitter. She provided regular updates and when I got home my apartment was clean and my doggy was happy. My dog is reactive which makes me nervous when I leave her with sitters but Allison was reassuring and I was glad Mae had no issues.

Alona watched over my two dogs while I was away on a work trip, and she was great with communicating/sending updates with cute pictures. She was also flexible and understanding when timing needed to change a little, and asked great questions during our neet and greet. Definitely would recommend her and will be asking her to stay with them again!

Leslie was amazing to work with and she was amazing with Ruxin. He gets so nervous when we leave on a trip, and we came home this time to see him full of smiles, tail wagging. She loved on him well, and went above and beyond. We'll be getting a hold of Leslie again soon!

Mia is the best dog sitter Mia and Archie could have hoped for! She stayed in our home with the dogs for 10 days and followed all of our instructions exactly, going above and beyond by providing updates (and adorable photos/videos!) multiple times each day — which made it easier to relax on vacation knowing the dogs were in such good hands. It became clear that Mia is not only responsible and trustworthy, but a true dog lover (and they loved her back!). She also offered to water our plants, brought in our packages for us, and left the house near and tidy for our return. We will definitely plan to reach out to Mia to care for our dogs again next time we travel. :)

Lana was available for a last minute booking for my two dogs & was fantastic! She was so kind & communicative, and my dogs loved her. One dog has separation anxiety and can be pretty energetic, and Lana was comfortable handling him. She was very considerate & I knew the pups were in great hands. Would definitely book with Lana again! Thank you!

I cannot say enough good things about Chantal!! We had a change of plans and she canceled her own plans to stay an extra day, which was an absolute life saver. What’s more, she took incredible care of the dogs - they are clearly happy and had lots of great walks and playtime throughout the time she was here. She even played fetch with our super active pup. And finally, our house was SPOTLESS and well taken care of - even our plants were happy! We will 100% book her again and I’m sure the dogs can’t wait to have her back.

Navya took care of our dog Crow and house sat for us for three weeks while we were away. We could not be more satisfied. :-) She was very responsive and easy to communicate with before her stay and during her stay. She took our dog on long walks, bathed her and loved her. She asked questions about care in detail - even some that I had not thought about. Also, she took very good care of our house and everything was cleaner than when we left it upon return. I would be more than happy to recommend Navya to anyone. Zeynep
