Samantha was great, both my dogs were well taken care off for the short period that they were gone. I appreciated the little extra that was done for them. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and will be using her again in the future.

Scott and Brinley were a perfect answer to our needs on Black Friday. Teddy and Teesa were not only well cared for, they must have had a wonderful time, because they were totally exhausted when they got home. Many thanks for the help!

Kayla is awesome. I trust no one with my puppy, I’m an extreme helicopter mom and worry constantly. She kept me updated with pictures all day which was really comforting, I always felt at ease. Her times were very flexible with my work schedule and I couldn’t be happier I left him with her! Thank you Kayla!!!

She cares about animals deeply and goes above and beyond for any animal/s in her possession. No matter if they are hers or someone else's. She is one person i would personally trust to leave my pet with and not have to worry about them. You couldn't pick a better person to babysit or walk your dog or any animal at that.

About: I’m the friend that’s relied on for training support. Puppy, Senior citizen, separation anxiety to adoptee experience; 10+ years. I’m passionate about learning new training techniques, implementing, and teaching. Every dog and companion deserves to understand each other. I have a 3 year old xl breed. Every day we focus on consistency and communication. I personally focus on the individual needs specific to my companions for the best life experience. From avid exercise to slow paced walks to muscle and joint massage and even reinforcing habits that create healthy confidence. I love paying attention to body language and understanding what it means for a companion as well as the companion’s caretaker and being able to provide comfort and training techniques based off of that. I can’t wait to be a certified dog trainer and help people understand there’s no such thing as a bad or impossible breed. It’s all about understanding, communication, implementation, and consistency. My goal is to keep your companions day as regular and consistent as possible. We will be on time for walks, they will get a lot of attention, I love animal body language so I’ll be able to build a connection with your companion based on their comfortability level, and I prefer to go by your rules. I understand no dogs on couches and I also fully support couch cuddles. It’s all about your companions happiness and well being along with providing ease and comfort for you and I will make sure to provide everything you need to maintain that. I chose a neighborhood great for king walks and close to downtown for easy access to greys lake. apartment that offered a dog park for comfortable potty breaks. And being right next to greys lake offers great adventures. I can crate if required, as I crate my 2 yr old for his safety. I encourage as many “rules” and your guidance to abide by to make your companions day to day as regular and enjoyable as possible. This is all about you guys and making your lives easy and comfortable.

Where do I start, Jennifer is one of the most thoughtful, aware, compassionate, intuitive, patient and respectful human beings that I've ever met. Her love for animals is above and beyond. Jennifer has a special gift of tapping into each animal's individual characteristics/ personalities. She treats every animal as if it were her own and gives 110% when it comes to making sure they feel safe, loved, and fulfilled. I would highly recommend Jennifer to watch anyone's fur babies.

About: I have lived with dogs 20+ years of my life. My partner, Anthony, and I currently have 2 dogs of our own who are both rescues. Arthur is our 6 year old playful, loving lab mix and Taz is our 4 month old sassy pit mix puppy! We love caring for pets and are excited to spread the love to more doggy friends! You can count on us to be reliable, respectful, engaged, and loving to your pets. We will ensure that they get exercise and the love they need while under our care. We will make sure the environment is safe for all pets and make sure your pet has access to food and water at all times. We work from home full time and will make sure your pet has the necessary potty breaks they need and will not be left in a kennel all day long. We love dogs and are excited to provide a safe + comfortable place for your pet so you can enjoy your time away from home knowing your dog(s) is/are in good hands. Anthony and I work from home, which makes pet care fit very easily into our daily and weekly routine. We have 2 dogs of our own and we never leave them home alone longer than 4 hours. We have a partially fenced in yard. The yard is safe and a great size to give your pet ample space to run around and exercise.

About: I have raised dogs, cats, bunnies, horses, and chickens my entire life. I currently have a Pug and a Boston Terrier, both puppies. I work from home and can provide day care, over nights, walks, pop-ins, etc. I am right down the street from Gateway so if you need a place to drop your animal off on your way to work downtown, I make a convenient drop off location. Very flexible with times. Air conditioning inside, large fully fenced backyard, and walks daily. 24/7 availability for pet care so long as we communicate in advance. I work from home and can be available based on your needs. I am available for drop off and pick up any time. There are a few times throughout the day where I will be driving my kids to and from events. We can communicate and work around those times. I also have a keypad. Animals are watched closely in the home and kept inside the fence in the backyard under supervision. When on walks animals are always on leash and are one on one with me. Separate food and water bowls are used. My yard is cleared of excrement daily. All animals must be up to date with shots and worming and flea/tick prevention.

Maren would be a great dog caregiver. She treats every pet that she comes into contact with like the pet is her own. She gives him or her so much attention and will play with them until they’re worn out and asleep. She makes it so your pet is loved and cared for until the time you come home to them.

Shae loves dogs almost as much as they love her. Feeding times are consistent, water is always in good supply, and outdoor time is always on the agenda. Shae is a loving caregiver that any pup would be lucky to spend time with!
