“Communication with Bryon was excellent. To us this is important and it extends to the dogs🐕🦺🦮!”
“Rachel was very thorough and communicative with both of her visits! I would definitely book her again.”
About: I grew up breeding & training German Shephards. In my twenties, I ran and lived on a doggy daycare and training facility. Currently, I run a dog bus and do pack walks. I do general obedience training, individual puppy training and am CPR/First Aid certified. I love dogs of all shapes and sizes! Can't wait to meet your pup. I work part time from home, my schedule is very flexible. M, W and Fr I do dog pack walks in the morning, but otherwise I can make a walk or a drop in work! I have a very well trained ESA dog that is friendly, and a nice big backyard. I live right next to Portland trails and Payson park, so exercise is easy!
“Jacqueline was so thoughtful and sweet with The Professor. I’m sure he was a little nervous on his first day in a new city, but she took him exploring South Portland, even dried him off after the rain and gave him his peanut butter Kong to tuck him in. Thank you!”
“Sydney has taken care of many of our animals over the last few years, including our Dalmatian and my parent’s Black Lab. She is great with high and medium energy dogs. She’s also a fantastic cat mom, and can shower any feline with love. We can’t recommend her enough!”
“Lisa, my rescue 5-year-old corgi-Jack Russell, and I were housemates for a few months, so I saw her love and care of dogs daily. She was always very careful, kind, and attentive to Spock, even when she was working from home. She was solicitous, refilling his water bowl when it got low and I didn't notice, and a confident loose leash dog walker when she'd offer to take Spock out. She'd always check with me if he could have treats, and did basic obedience with Spock when dishing out the cookies (sit, lie down, etc.). When we'd go for walks-- and Lisa walks a lot, a higher energy pooch's dream parent!-- she was always patient with Spock's frequent marking and sniffing stops, and she kept an eye out for potential chewing/choking hazards (dead crabs! deer scat!) on the sidewalks and trails. I was always shocked and delighted that even when Lisa was in a hurry to get somewhere, she'd dash across the street to give my neighbor's 1 year old Golden Retriever, Lucky, some playtime and belly rubs, since he's frequently out in his Invisible Fence looking lonely. Lisa is also a regular pet sitter for two of her friends’ dogs up the coast and talks of both of them fondly. She’s an amazing pet caregiver to dogs of all shapes and sizes and is also familiar with cat-dog siblingships from her many years with a big dog and two cats. Although I didn't know Lisa when she had Bella, the beloved golden/lab mix and Good Girl who passed away two years ago after a good long life since puppyhood with Lisa, I've been fortunate to hear many stories about Bella's upbringing and life with Lisa, and privy to the videos and photos Lisa made of Bella and keeps on her phone and prominently displayed in her home. Bella was introduced to neighborhood dogs, cats, and humans, and greatly beloved by all, so much so the neighbors had a framed photo of Bella in their hallway! I credit some of this to Lisa being a doting, responsible, and generous dog mom. Lisa was so devoted to Bella that she contracted integrative medicine practitioners in addition to conventional veterinary care to ease Bella's pain when she got sick and help her to have the best end of life possible. Trading stories about obedience school, crate training, potty training, food and treat types, grooming, and daily life with Bella compared to my own rescue dog, I'm completely convinced Lisa is a caring, responsive caregiver who builds in plenty of structure, healthy boundaries, socialization, play, love, and snuggle space using her years of knowledge. Lisa is a bona fide dog person who understands safety and love. She would have done anything for Bella from 8 weeks old to her end and beyond, and I'm sure will do anything to build the best, healthiest, longest life for the next dog who comes into her life through Rover or otherwise.”
About: I’ve taken care of many dogs throughout my life. From simple bathroom trips to dog sitting a couple weeks. Always cautious when bringing pets into new situations. I have a pretty open schedule right now so I’m welcoming all bookings. If there is a scheduling conflict I will let you know right away. I cannot watch dogs in my apartment but I can have cats. I can take the dogs for walks and play with them at your home
“Rose is fantastic with our dog. Kind, prompt, and compassionate. He’s not the most active guy and can be stubborn and Rose has embraced it all. We are so lucky to have found her.”
Chad P. & Amy W.
“You take such beautiful pictures, with or without the dog 🐶”
About: I grew up with dogs all my life, from puppies to senior dogs. Currently I live with roommates who have an Australian Shepard and a tuxedo cat and I help take care of them daily. Including feeding, walks, and playtime! I am currently working full time and I have all day availability Tuesday through Thursday. Friday through Monday I have morning availability until 10am, and after 6pm most days. I have always been a lover of dogs and cats having grown up with them and I currently live with one of each, helping their owners take care of them daily. I have my own transportation and enjoy taking nature walks on local hiking trails. I am observant of environmental surroundings and will ensure the safety of your pet, both in and outside the home.
“Jayson was incredibly communicative and great to work with. He helped us out with walking our pitbull, Stan, in the midst of a very busy work week. We will be using Jayson again!!”
“Kristin has helped care for my pets since she was a kid. We have always owned or fostered 2 to 5 dogs at a time and Kristin has feed, walked and cared for them all at some time. From our 150 lb. mastiff to our 5 lb. pekingese mix she has loved them all. Kristin has also taken care of our cats over the years. She is very dependable and trustworthy. I would use her for all my pet sitting needs.”

“So grateful for Rose and her help when I have some last minute schedule changes. Whether it be my dog's medication time or a quick walk she's always been there when I needed her. Can't wait to have her help again in the future!”
“Our dog Jasper loves Nathan! He is patient and kind with our dog. Jasper loves walkies with Nathan and gets so excited when he comes over. We recommend Nathan highly; responsible and trustworthy.”
“Rodger was great with our two dogs. He took them on long walks with different routes each time. He showed patience with our rescue which is greatly appreciated, will definitely book again!”
“First she genuinely is a beautiful person inside and out, literally. She’s also a very gentle person so you don’t have to worry about pets, they are in great handles. Not to brag about my friend, but she’s currently in the process of applying to med school. As you can imagine she’s very smart, organized and extremely caring. She took care of my dogs and cats multiple times and always sent cute pictures of them. She loves animals and the animals can definitely feel it. The animals also always miss her when she’s gone. Nishat’s a gem.”
“Sarah is amazing! So good with my pup and always takes the best pictures of her on their daily walks, which I really enjoy. She knows a lot about dogs and has given me lots of tips! It’s so nice to go to work and not have to worry about my “child!” Don’t hesitate to book her!”
“Harrison has been instrumental in our continuing efforts to socialize our sweet but shy German Shepherd rescue dog! His ability to capture her smiling during walks bring joy to our days when we are away for work, knowing she’s well cared for - Thanks, Harrison!”
“Terra has been taking care of our cats for at least 4 years. What makes Terra special? Terra loves animals and it shows in the care that she gives them; taking time to interact with them- taking time to get to know them by "just being there". Terra is very responsible, follows the schedule and lists of all the needs of the cats. She also takes care of my daughters 2 dogs and 1 aging cat. She can administer medicine. She plays with the animals, takes the dogs for walks, lets cats or dogs take naps on her lap. My cats greet her at the door and rub against her before returning to their many naps during the day. I think they know they are safe and will be well taken care of. One time we were gone for 6 weeks and Terra moved in and kept a daily diary of what was happening while we were gone. It was reassuring to know that someone responsible and caring would be at our home for such a long time. Terra is highly recommended by our family, including the cats and dogs.”
