Bailey did an absolutely amazing job of taking care of our cat over a long holiday weekend! We didn’t have to worry about a thing — and came home to a very happy pet. 😊

Tanya was extremely attentive to our cats while we were gone and very attuned to their body language and (obviously) non-verbal communication. She was also great at communicating with us. Couldn’t recommend a better caretaker - would gladly hire her again!

Andrea has been amazing, our dogs can be a lot and be very hyper. She plays fetch, gives them water and feeds them breakfast. She even takes the time to clean up if our dogs manage to escape out of the kennel and make a mess ( they counter surf). She Leaves a report card every time and sends lots of pics with just the hour she’s at our house. I would recommended Andrea 10/10!

We added an extra visit on the night we came home - the puppies were all taken care of so we could just settle in and relax with them after a late flight back. Christina did an amazing job the whole week!

My animals love Cory. He goes above and beyond, even taking my ten year old Pom Lily home with him during tornado warnings. I never have to worry with Cory taking care of my animals. He’s very responsible and kind.

Lisa, was great with my three cats. I have a almost 15 yr old male cat that has been very skittish all his life. Most pet sitters have never even gotten him out to eat his can food but Lisa not only got him out to eat but also got his medicine on his ears that he has to have twice a day every day for hypothyroidism. Knowing that he was taken care while my husband and I were out of town attending our daughters wedding was a hugh blessing. Thanks again Lisa.

Brad does a great job for us. He is always prompt and sends us pictures during every visit. Our two 75 lb rowdies were very happy and well cared for. We will definitely continue to use Brad to care for our dogs when we're out of town.

Troy was awesome with Asher!! Left very detailed feedback, and got him some much needed exercise during the day while I'm gone. Asher was very tired after, which is the goal! I have no complaints and would recommend to anyone looking to supplement some socialization and exercise for their pets.

Our cats are still warming up to the idea of people and tend to hide (even from us on some days), but Nichole did her best to win them over anyway. It gave me great peace of mind to know the person checking on them was so attentive, even if the cats themselves weren't enthusiastic about a new friend. Thanks so much!

About: I bring a unique blend of experience and enthusiasm to pet care. Having worked with a variety of breeds, I specialize in training puppies with gentle, positive reinforcement techniques that set them up for a lifetime of good behavior. Additionally, I have extensive experience in caring for senior dogs, providing them with the patience and special attention they need. My approach is tailored to each pet's individual needs, ensuring they receive the best possible care while you're away. Pet care is a natural part of my daily routine, as I have three beloved pets at home. Caring for them has seamlessly integrated into my life, ensuring that I consistently practice patience, attentiveness, and the joy of spending quality time with animals every day. This personal experience deeply enhances my ability to provide professional care for others’ pets as well. In both my home and my clients' homes, I prioritize creating a safe and trustworthy environment for pets. I ensure all areas are secure and free from hazards, and I maintain a clean and welcoming space that meets the specific needs of each pet. Regular updates and clear communication with pet owners help build trust, ensuring they feel confident their beloved animals are in good hands. Whether it's adhering to specific dietary routines or following a prescribed exercise regimen, I tailor my care to suit the unique preferences and requirements of each pet I look after.
