Erin and Chris are amazing with Neumann! I have never trusted anyone as much with him, and I think he was even a little sad to come home with me after his last stay... Can't wait to book with them again!!

Lisa is the BEST. She was so accommodating with my last minute booking and was just absolutely amazing with my dog, Joey! He had SO much fun running around and playing with Missy! He was very tired, but very happy when I picked him up! Lisa is my favorite sitter for Joey and I am so glad I found her! I seriously can’t express how amazing she is!

Rhonda is just perfect. This was Maddie's first time with a sitter and was nervous. Rhonda's home is very pet friendly and she calmed Maddie down so she stopped shaking even before I had to leave. Will definitely call Rhonda next time I'm in town!

First time I have ever left my dogs for an entire weekend and I was nervous. Luckily, I struck gold the first time. I highly recommend this sitter. My dogs were well taken care of and I didn't have to worry all weekend. They loved playing in the yard and the walks they get to go on. So blessed to have found such an awesome dog sitter.

My dog was well cared for and very loved. She sent pics during his stay to show how happy he was. The only issue was on our return day. I texted to see if we could pick him up after midnight, and never received a reply all day and phone calls went straight to voicemail. So I was worried something had happened to her. All was fine in the end, but it was concerning.

Cory did an amazing job while boarding our 1 year old German Shorthair Pointer. (Those who know the breed know how crazy they are!) She had a blast and we will be returning to Cory in the future!

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 !!

Ashley has been a dog owner for several years. She goes above and beyond for her own dog creating a safe, loving and fun environment for her pups. I trust her with my own pup, she is active with taking her dogs on walks and would be a wonderful dog walker and caretaker!

Tripp had the best time with Samantha. He loves his time with all the other doggies and I always get so many gorgeous pics of him. Warms my heart and I know that he is having a blast and getting soooo much love and attention. I always have the best peace of mind with him there and she has helped me out in so many scenarios. She’s a gem!!
