Maricela was awesome with easing in Sami into her home, giving her space to get used to the new environment. She sent pictures daily and was always incredibly responsive in both the inquiry and once booked. She accommodated our requests and was incredibly friendly. Definitely recommend Maricela if you are looking for someone that will treat your pet as their own!

Alice is absolutely amazing ! As soon as we dropped Benji off, we felt like he was in the best hands! This was one of the first times we were away from him this long and Alice made us feel so at ease and reassured throughout the whole trip! I’ve found a permanent dog-sitter in Alice ! I highly recommend and appreciate you, Alice ! Thank you for everything !!

Jaden and his girlfriend were amazing!!! They took such incredible care of our dogs. We were worried our dogs wouldn’t want to leave when we picked them up! They took them on walks at the lake, played and cuddled with them, and treated them as they were their own. Definitely book Jaden! He is amazing and a great communicator! Your dogs will be insanely blessed to stay with Jaden!!

Justin was great! My dog can be a bit anxious and slow to warm up in new settings. Justin was very patient with her and sent updates with pictures every day. Looking forward to having Belle stay with him again!

Heather and her family were great for Tank! Having a 10 month old puppy can be a lot sometimes, especially for a longer stay lol. Heather and Tank did a lot together and he was able to meet and see lots of new things! We couldn't be happier knowing he was in good hands and with someone looking out for him, having photo sessions and making sure he is safe and has lots of fun! We appreciated that she would send us photos and videos of our guy while we were away. Thank you so much Heather!!!

Amazing experience. Our dog gets homesick but Alexandra was there to help him adjust while we were out of town. He LOVED the big backyard and his new dog friend. Thank you for taking such care of our dog and giving us updates along the way - you went above and beyond.

I can't recommend Chloe highly enough for anyone in need of a trustworthy and caring pet sitter. Chloe went above and beyond in taking care of my dog, Addie. She made sure Addie got plenty of exercise, taking her on regular walks and giving her all the love and attention she needed while I was away. Chloe also ensured that I had peace of mind throughout the entire experience. She communicated regularly with updates and offered to send photos, which I really appreciated. If you're looking for someone who will treat your furry friend like family, look no further than Chloe. I will definitely be reaching out to her again for future pet-sitting needs.

I had to travel halfway across the world for over two weeks without my anxious little Emma. Christy and Erkam did such a great job dealing with Emma - keeping her calm, going out for walks, and giving her medicine. They gave me frequent updates and immediately reached out whenever they have questions and concerns. Really appreciate the love and attention they showered Emma with. Highly recommend Christy and Erkam!

Rachel has watched my 1 year old golden retriever 3 times now and has done an excellent job every time! He always comes home tired because he has so much fun with her! Last time she watched him my dog chewed through his leash while they were at a cafe and Rachel dealt with the situation very well, calmly holding has collar and having a friend get new leash from a nearby shop. I can’t recommend her enough!

Cory took great care of our dog while we were away. Our dog can have periods of anxiety and does not do well with other animals, he was able to handle her behaviors without a problem. He sent us regular updates and kept her active all weekend. She was happy and worn out when we picked her up. We would definitely recommend and plan to use him again for future trips!

Jasmine was excellent with watching two of my dogs, Toby and Leia! She already had a full house of her own but she made sure my pups were comfortable and happy while my partner and I were away. Highly recommend!
