“This is the first time Josh has stayed with our pugs, and we feel so incredibly lucky to have found him. He came over for a meet and greet, and we could tell that he is kind and genuinely likes animals. We had no qualms about booking him, but we were blown away by the level of professionalism and care that he gave while we were gone. He sent us constant updates with pics and videos, which we greatly appreciated. We never even had to text and ask for an update. It was always obvious from the disposition of our pugs that they were comfortable and happy. He even took them to the park. Hr also took great care of our home, watered our plants, made sure any dirty laundry was place with the rest of the dirty laundry, made the bed, and even did a load of dishes. He really went above and beyond. We will absolutely be booking him again and tell our friends about him. If you are looking for a house / pet sitter, do not hesitate to book him. He is absolutely wonderful!”
“Esther took great care of my very old dog, gave his meds and put up with his very early schedule, and feed my 4 kitties too❤️I recommend her to everyone 🎉”
“Neala was excited from first meeting with Scott. He responded to her excitement with engaging her in fetch. Scott kept us informed as to Neala's morning and afternoons. Updates were to meet our needs as this was our first time leaving our little one. Morning play time and afternoon walks.T”
“Sydney is reliable, a great communicator, and very kind. We appreciate the level of care she provided and the peace of mind while we were away. Will definitely be repeat customers!”
“Kelsey has been an animal lover since she was a small child. She grew up with farm animals as well as dogs and cats. She has worked with dogs and cats in several capacities. For almost 3 years she worked as a Veterinary Assistant where she was responsible for bathing, walking, medicating, comforting and caring for the animals in the kennels. She earned a Veterinary Assistant Certification during her senior year of high school. She also worked for 3 years caring for show dogs. Kelsey is gentle, loving and very passionate with animals. She is trained on what to do in an emergency and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a kind and trustworthy animal caretaker.”
“Left my 4 month puppy overnight, she was awesome and kept me posted and sent me pictures.. definitely will hire Crystal again.. thank you Crystal!”
“She is great, she allowed us to enjoy our trip without worry using her again for when going out of town.”
“I absolutely recommend Jackson as a pet sitter! He does a great job with my three dogs (chihuahua, aussie & doodle). He spends quality time with them, leaves the house clean and tidy and gives me peace of mind while I travel. I highly recommend him!”
About: I’ve had multiple types of animals from the moment I was born, and been a die hard animal lover ever since. I am a certified veterinary assistant and I currently work at a pet resort, so I’m experienced and knowledgeable in how to take care of all your pets needs! I currently have two cats, a 13 year old female who’s my cranky old lady and a 2 year old male who’s super rambunctious! I also have two German shepherds, so I can very easily handle large breed dogs. I can gladly walk, care for, and play with all your fur babies! Every animal I come across gets the same love and attention I’d give my own babies. Being in the veterinary medicine field I have plenty of hands on experience when it comes to caring for and handling all types of animals and all their specials needs. I am able to give oral and injectable medications no problem, follow any specific diet regimes, as well as handle any food aggressive dog with ease. I do work at a pet resort currently, but my schedule is still pretty flexible. I do not drive but still easily get around and always arrive anywhere I need to be promptly and on time. If you live outside of my service radius I reserve the right to charge and extra fee (up to $50) for transportation to your home. Thank you for your understanding! My shepherds are indoor/outdoor, they are crate trained, house broken, and get lots of play time and exercise in the form of walks and outside games of fetch. My cats are indoor only, litterbox trained, and get lots of love and playtime. All the animals also get spoiled with treats and tons of attention! I’d treat your animals the same I would my own, make sure they’re happy and healthy and taken care of. Being trained in the veterinary medicine field, I can also safely take care of any special medical needs or restrictions your fur babies may have as well.
“Emily was so great. She came to meet Simba the day before to ease my worries and have a smooth transition when I left him. She kept in contact the entire time I was away with texting and pictures. She left my apartment even cleaner than it was when I left. I highly recommend her.”
About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“Oli was great! She sent lots of pictures and updates on how everything was going. She’s very responsive to messages and even put out the garbage for pick up before she left. Lucy was much more comfortable staying at home and I plan on seeing if she’s able to stay with her next time I leave town.”

I have had the privilege of entrusting my beloved pets into Ms. Ramos’ care on numerous occasions, and each time I have been thoroughly impressed with their high-quality service, responsibility, attentiveness, and genuine care for animals. From the moment I met Ms. Ramos, it was evident that they possess a deep and sincere passion for animals. Their dedication to providing top-notch care is palpable in every interaction. I have observed Ms. Ramos diligently taking the time to understand each pet's unique needs, preferences, and personalities. This level of attentiveness not only ensures the physical well-being of the animals but also provides them with the emotional comfort they require in the absence of their owners. What sets Ms. Ramos apart is their innate sense of responsibility. They take their role seriously and have consistently proven to be reliable and punctual. Whether it's adhering to specific feeding schedules, administering medications, or maintaining a clean and safe environment, Ms. Ramos consistently goes above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of the pets' care is meticulously attended to. Ms. Ramos’ caring nature shines through in every interaction. I have witnessed them engaging with animals in a manner that reflects not only their expertise but also their genuine love for animals.

I wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Ramos as a pet sitter of the highest quality. Their responsible and attentive nature, coupled with their genuine care for animals, make them an invaluable asset to any pet owner seeking trustworthy and compassionate care for their furry companions. I am confident that Ms. Ramos will continue to excel in their role and provide exceptional service to every pet they have the privilege of looking after.”
“Kharlee is fantastic! Kharlee dogsat for my 3 while I was gone on a trip and stayed with them at my home. This was my first time using a dog sitter and It was exactly what I was looking for - and I just came home to 3 very happy and safe puppers. Kharlee was awesome with communication and sending pictures and updates. She also made a point to do multiple meet and greets with my pups to make sure they would be comfortable with her. I will 100% be using Kharlee again and am stoked to have found someone my dogs are so happy with! :)”
About: I've been looking after pets since I was 12, from neighbor to family pets. My responsibilities have extended from walking the pets to sleeping next to them so they'll feel at ease. Puppies and cats have been trusted upon me and I can confidently say that I'm a puppy expert. I've worked with many different dogs and I've loved every single one. Anything that your pup or kitty requires will be my top priority. I am currently a stay at home wife, so for pups that need to be under constant watch there is no problem, I'll be available. This also goes for senior dogs who may have to be let outside more often. I'm fully available to the needs of your pets! My way of caring for a pet will always be based off of what you as an owner tells me needs to be done. My goal is to try to keep your pert as comfortable as possible while their mom and dad are gone. I'm a stickler for rules and every pet owner has a certain way of doing things with their pet and I will abide by that routine to keep your pet stress free.
About: I have had experience at an animal daycare where pets boarded overnight. I've worked with animals from pugs to pitbulls! I also own two cats. I work overnight shifts from 11:30PM-8:30AM on weekdays and 9:30PM-6:30AM on weekends. During those hours, animals can sleep inside, I have an EBO camera to watch them during the night. They should be asleep during these hours. I don’t work during the daytime so I can keep an eye on any fur babies I’m sitting. Most time will be spent outdoors if the weather is nice. There’s also multiple dog parks in the area that I can drive to. In a clients home, I'm open to any rules and regulations implemented by the client. I like to spend as much time outside with pets as possible. If no outdoor space, I'm okay with staying inside. I'm also open to traveling to nearby parks for playtime and potty time. In my house, again, I like to spend as much time with the pets outside as possible. My neighborhood is very pet friendly and there are several dog parks and other parks nearby. My apartment has an open yard if owner doesn't want pet to travel far. If owner requires only indoor care, I have potty pads and treats on hand. I do own two cats that will be kept away from non cat-friendly animals. CAN PROVIDE UPDATES IN THE FORM OF PICTURES, VIDEOS, AND TEXTS IF REQUESTED! I love to keep owners up to date on their pets.
“Maya was the most considerate and kind young woman that I could ask for in a dog sitter. She took care of my old little chihuahua with such affection. I can tell she has a real passion for animals and you will not regret going with her for anything that you might need for your pets.”
“Lizbeth has been my biggest help with my dog. Whenever I need someone to look out for my husky rocky, I can trust Lizbeth will give him the care he needs. He can be a bit high maintenance but liz always handles the situation greatly 😊”
“Berlyn has a sweet and gentle presence that helps my dogs feel safe and calm. She communicates regularly and is punctual. She's very receptive to feedback. She is great.”
