Samuel is a great sitter for Pils. He accommodated her activity requirements, taking her out on hikes and walks. She was happy and healthy at pickup. We would book him again.

Margaret is probably the best dog sitter we’ve ever worked with. Let me give some context: our utterly cute dog was adopted in 2020 (pandemic dog) with already deep fear and trauma. We think something happened when she was a puppy that caused deep fear such as abuse or some sort of trauma. Basically, she was afraid of everything and utterly shy. We worked with multiple trainers for almost two years and finally got her to a good place. We learned with time and patience she gets comfortable with strangers and once you’re in her pack. You are there for life. She loves playing with dogs but dog parks would get complicated because other dogs sometimes would teach bad habits or become aggressive (trainers also mentioned things can escalate and certain owners have no control). We also learned she is scared of certain breeds and afraid of cats. But she has an incredible memory and is the smartest dog we’ve ever had. However, most people dog kennels, individuals have zero experience and patience. Given her memory, there are certain vets or dog daycares she will cry and try running away from if we are walking by. The true test of dog unhappiness. Fast forward to 2023, we’ve built trust and loyalty with our baby but the problem is she is still afraid of strangers and the unknown. She is al highly protective of her territory and will start barking (think a stranger walking up to me or a stranger entering our home). We’ve learned methods to make her feel safe and comfortable and ways strangers should approach. Basically it’s hard to find a dog sitter for her than the average dog. Most places are money machines and do not give her the time making her regress. Margaret is beyond words incredible. She knows how to work with all types of dogs including very shy dogs and dogs with behavioral challenges. She has ample experience and genuine care for animals. Also our dog is highly fearful of the breeds: huskies and German shepherds. Margaret has both and was able to get our dog comfortable going out on runs and walks with them. When we came to pick her up she was sad to go and saying bye to both Margaret, her partner John (another amazing human) and all their dogs. She loved all of them from Luma the chihuahua mix that made ours more social to the Willis and Jackson that made her confident to even Jackson who made her feel safe and like a queen. They even were flirting hahaha Never have we left our dog and received so many pictures and saw her so happy. She did not even want to leave when we picked her up and learned new commands in just one week like paw. Our dog even cried while we drove away and loved her new pack. Margaret said she fit right in. If Margaret and John open a doggie daycare, our pup would be there every day because we have never seen her so social and happy while remaining in a safe and controlled space. She was loved, fed like crazy (the way to her heart) but did not gain weight because of all the exercise, games and activities provided by this wonderful couple. Margaret is also an incredible trainer and has so much patience and love. I felt so easy on our holidays with my baby there, did not even think twice. We are beyond proud and since that week with Margaret she is a different dog. Sweeter, calmer and just more confident and trusting. Please open a daycare that this area so desperately needs. One thing- I recognize the price is expensive this was our biggest challenge but they are truly worth it!!

We are so grateful to have found Yi as our dog sitter for boarding! She was fantastic with our dog Toma, sending us regular updates which really put our minds at ease. It's clear that Yi is not only professional but also genuinely caring towards pets. Toma was very happy during his stay with Yi, and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable and loving dog sitter.

MinJun and Mi Ran took great care of Lava during his stay. He can be a fussy eater sometimes, and they were very patient with him, trying different options and making sure that he didn’t go hungry. They took him out on walks and kept me updated with photos and videos! They even took him out for a drive and arranged a play date too! He came back home very happy!

Jesse and Kimmy are absolutely wonderful! They are so kind and caring with my dog and regularly send updates to let me know he is doing well. I trust them with my dog for even long term trips. My dog Simon seems to enjoy his stays with Jesse and Kimmy and is comfortable in their home. I've booked several sitters through Rover and Jesse and Kimmy have been most accommodating of my dog's quarkiness and even seem to enjoy the quarks! Highly recommend!!!

Marivel has been wonderful with our pups. She is always communicating, specifically addressing one of our pups special needs, and generally taking great care of them. The pups are excited to see her and her family and jump out of the car to greet them. That’s always a reassuring sign for an owner. Thank you Marivel for being such a conscientious and caring person towards are fur babies!

Kendall and family provided a great home-away-from-home for our dog, Ruby, while we were on vacation. We enjoyed our vacation, guilt-free, knowing that Ruby was having lots of fun playing with Kendall’s dog, Moon, going on walks, lounging around as she pleased and having a great family around to socialize with. Kendall provided frequent updates and photos and we couldn’t be more thankful. We recommend Kendall to anyone looking for dog boarding and definitely plan on booking again. Thank you!

About: My friends and neighbors rely on me for taking great care of their dogs. I especially enjoy going on long walks with dogs and play games with them :) I’m mostly free on weekends and work from home on weekdays. My schedule is flexible and can dog sit most of the time with availability to walk the dog 2-3 times a day. I live in a one-story townhouse on Stanford campus, your dog will get all of my attention at home. My place is close to a dog park, that’s perfect for dog socializing, and many green areas for walks.

India had a wonderful visit with Olga and her family. She was loved, walked and cuddled. I received lots of photos and videos and felt completely assured India was in good hands. I loved that India had access to her yard, dog park and lots of walks. I am absolutely going to rebook Olga for India. I feel completely lucky to find Olga, she is a gem, thoughtful, responsible and naturally an animal person.

Blake was so great with Tonka! He took care of her for about a week when we were out of town. We got daily updates with photos, he was always very prompt in replying to any messages and questions we had. The most important thing was that Tonka seemed very comfortable, happy, and loved!

Natsuki was awesome. Here's why- she was ultra responsive, sent tons of photos, asked questions before Julius' stay to ensure he'd be comfortable, and was available at any time to answer questions or reply. She was also super nice and easy to work with. We'll be booking with her again.
