Sarah does an amazing job with my 5 year old Chiweenie Belle. She goes a above and beyond to make sure she is comfortable. We did a meet and greet and Belle liked her instantly. She takes her on a walk and makes sure she eats a little something while I'm working. I would highly recommend Sarah!!

Jessica was great! She took time out of her night to come visit Koda the night before she walked him and see how they did with each other! She was also a great walker and was willing to just hang out with him outside of his kennel and play with his toys! We will definitely be going back to Jessica again!

Claudia has watched my dog several times and he gets super excited when he sees her! He is young and a bit high maintenance but Claudia handled him with ease. She gave him LOTS of love and attention and even sent me multiple updates and photos while I was away! I used to feel terrible dropping him off at a kennel but now I know he's in great hands with Claudia. 5 Stars all the way!! Highly recommend!!

I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Leah for the position of pet caretaker. I have known Leah for my whole life and have consistently been impressed with their dedication, compassion, and professionalism when it comes to the care of animals. Leah has a natural rapport with pets of all kinds, and I have personally witnessed their ability to connect with, calm, and care for animals in a variety of settings. Whether it's providing routine care, handling special dietary needs, or managing pets with health concerns, Leah has always shown a level of attentiveness and expertise that is truly commendable. One of the qualities that sets Leah apart is their proactive approach to pet care. They do not hesitate to go the extra mile to ensure the well-being of the animals in their charge. This level of initiative is something that I believe any pet owner would greatly appreciate. Furthermore, Leah's communication skills are excellent. They keep pet owners updated with regular reports and are always available to discuss any concerns or questions that may arise. Their reliability and trustworthiness have made them a go-to for pet care among our community. In conclusion, I am confident that Leah would be a valuable asset to your team and provide the highest level of care to the pets they look after. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information or clarification. Warm regards, -Kylie Krauss

Chelsie you went above and beyond to make sure my pups were treated with royalty. I have never seen my dogs get so excited to see someone, not even when I get home. Chelsie supplied lots of pictures of the walks and the most detailed summary which was always a pleasure to read. She really cares and extremely thoughtful, would never hesitate to book with her anytime I need help. Thank you so much Chelsie!

Carol is always attentive to our pets and will send random pics to see that they are being loved. She asks about behaviors and feeding schedules and always lets our dogs out multiple times per day. She is a joy to be around and we know whenever we are gone that the fort is held down with our pets.

Andrea is our go-to dog sitter and worth every penny. Our dog takes medication, is now deaf and sometimes goes on walks. Andrea is amazing, sends pictures all the time and makes our vacations relaxing because I don’t have to worry about any issues at home.
