“Andrew was very professional, had a screening call (that I appreciated), was super flexible and accommodating with my meeting schedule being ambiguous and ultimately was pushed beyond the time I had communicated. He was friendly, attentive, sent photos and took Lady on an adventure. Loved working with him and am so glad I trusted him with my girl while I was in town. Very pleased!! THANK YOU!”
“Christine is the best. She made it really easy for us to leave our 13 week old puppy with her for the day and feel totally confident that she was well taken care of. Thank you!”
“Rachel is so accommodating and a great communicator! Took wonderful care of my bulldog”
“Shaena was great with Reynard and accepted a very last minute request to watch him at her home for the day. She sent updates that put my mind at ease. I would hire her again!”
“Whitney was awesome with our dog when we dropped her off for the day while we moved. She was super kind, had a lovely space and took Mango on some fun outings. Would totally book with her again!”
“Alexa is a phenomenal pet owner. I always have her watch my dog when I go out of town on business and she does an amazing job every single time, even watching my dog for days at a time if needed.”
“I have a yellow lab named Oliver. Gigi has cared for him for many years. shes always respocible and sweet with him he loves her!”
“I was in town for a show and was looking for someone to look after Kieran. Susan was the perfect match. Kieran is a nervous pup, but he took to Susan immediately! Her dog Blue is a big sweetie and he and Kieran got along right away—did a quick greeting and then we’re off running around the yard. Susan has a nice big yard with a sturdy fence and she very thoughtfully walked me all around and showed me around her place, making sure I was comfortable leaving Kieran with her. She was so responsive and kind—she was understanding when I was running a bit late and she would send me updates as well. When I came to pick up Kieran, it was clear he’d had an amazing time with Blue and Susan—getting plenty of time outside and then some relaxing play inside too. I really appreciated Susan’s detailed summary of the day. I totally recommend booking with Susan and look forward to seeing her and Blue soon!”
About: I am a nurse looking for a side gig. I love all animals and treat them like they are my own. I would love to have one of my own but work long hours when i do work. I am very respectful and will follow any rules or wishes you have for your pet or home. I work three 12 hour shifts at the hospital. On my days off I love to walk around the city or go to some trails. I would love to take your pets on my fun day off adventures. I am very responsible and respectful. I understand everyone’s pets have different needs and rules to follow and I will make sure to stick by that.
About: My family and I have owned dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc for as long as I can remember. I currently am the loving mother of our super-mutt Kaia who is 3 years old and Randy, our very large cat. Dan and I are constantly hiking, traveling, adventuring with Kaia and we will do the same with your furry family member! My family always had animals in the house, and back at my family home we have a 13 y/o. Husky/ Kelpie mix, an 8 y/o. Husky/ German Shepherd mix and 2 little kitties! Previously, my family owned a Chocolate Lab and a Siberian Husky. Over the past 20 years, I have been the go-to person to care for a friend or neighbors' dog/pet ranging from small terriers to large german shepherds for week long visits or for a quick walk around the neighborhood! I will love your dog, cat, little critter as if he/she is my own! As an avid nature lover, I care for all animals, big or small. Your pup will be safe with me! My family dog Sadie also has diabetes, so I am well equipped to administer any medication your furry friend May require. I work from home, so I’m very available to care for your pet whenever you need! We walk Kaia multiple times a day in the neighborhood or in the woods path near our house, so your pet is guaranteed to get a workout! We have a 7ft tall fenced in yard that the dogs can run around in all day! Dogs are allowed on our furniture, but please let us know if they are safe with kitties!
“Emily is enthusiastic, kind, and excellent with dogs. My dog Wiggles loves spending time with her and gets excited every time she visits. Her compassion and love for animals is astounding and I can trust her to treat Wiggles well and do what’s best for her. If you need someone wonderful to take care of your beloved pet, you’ve found the right person!”
“Gwen not only loves animals but also has extensive experience caring for them. She was employed as a vet tech for several years and even worked with marine animals. She has cared for our dogs on several occasions, and we highly recommend her. Your animals will love her!”
“Savannah was fantastic in taking in our pup for a last minute daycare stay. She was responsive, caring, flexible and so great with our girl Phoebe! Our pup is needy, anxious and a bit quirky but Savannah was great with her. Would absolutely use her again!”
“Melanie is fantastic with my pets and truly cares about them as if they were her own! She’s great about sending updates and communicating with me. My pets love her and get so excited every time they see her! I feel comfortable knowing they’re in her care and I can relax because I know they’re safe and happy with her! Can’t say enough good things about Melanie!”

“I was glad I found Josie who is relatively close to the hotel I was staying at. She is a very lovely woman who loves dogs and Vinny was smitten with her from the start. Knowing that Vinny was in good hands allowed us to go on adventures without having to worrying about him. Will definitely contact Josie again if we are back in Bend.”
“Zola was so great! We were in town for a special dinner and requested her to dog sit last minute. She was super easy to communicate with, attentive, and took great care of our dog for the evening. Definitely recommend her for your pet caretaking needs.”
About: I started taking care of my own animals at a very young age. I found a lot of joy in it, due to that I progressed into fostering kittens, then pet sitting as I got older. I've dealt with anything from dogs to sugar gliders and everything in between! I've also done intensive care for kittens as young as four weeks old, and dogs that are 19 years old. I'm up for a short walk around the block or a two mile run, whatever makes your babies feel at home while in my care. Please let me know if there are any specifications for your animals and I'll do my best to accommodate them and make sure your babies are happy and healthy while you're away. I am currently not working a 9-5 giving me the majority of the day to attend to your pets! I am generally available for one week to two week intervals of dog sitting, but please inquire for other periods. Booking in advance is always helpful and appreciated. My home is under construction so I am only offering care in my clients home. I love tending to plants, and don't mind doing other things like gardening, light housework,please note that I charge for some of these services onna case by case basis.
“I highly recommend Amelia. She is fantastic with animals and has a beautiful balance of calmness and confidence. She will be fantastic with your animals.”
