Jenevieve is a literal angel. She was just supposed to do a drop-in to see Deku and let him out. My A/C went out the night before the scheduled visit and it’s was 100 degrees outside. Jenevieve took him to her home to watch him for the day while I was at work. If it wasn’t for her, Deku would definitely not be okay! She saved the day and saved me from so much stress during my first day at my new job! A literal lifesaver!

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!

My dogs and cat were in such good hands. Highly recommend him. Will use again and again. Was in another country and he was so patient with my payment issue. I didn’t have to worry even at 3700 miles away.

Jaden loves animals and had had his own dog for 14 years, he cared for him very deeply. His responsibilities have included feeding, exercising, administering medications and providing companionship. He bonds well with animals and has great communication skills. I would recommend Jaden as a pet caregiver to anyone seeking a responsible, knowledgeable and compassionate individual to look after their beloved 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!

Sidney did a great job with her drop-in visit. We came home to a happy, content dog and it was comforting to get photos midday and know he was getting a break from his kennel. We would hire her again!

There is no one I would rather leave my dog Elsa with! Each time I leave, I know that my dog is having fun and is being well taken care of. Jenna's love and care for animals is apparent through her dog training and care for her own pets, which is comforting as an owner when I entrust someone with my dog! Frequent updates throughout my dog's stay is even more reassurance that she is safe and having a wonderful time. If you are looking for someone to take care of your dog, I couldn't recommend Jenna enough!

About: I worked at South Des Moines Vet clinic for 1 year. I was an intern and a Kennel attendant. Throughout my career at the clinic I learned to adapt to special routines each dog has. I clipped nails, bathed dogs, cleaned up messes, administered medication, walked dogs, and made sure they had plenty of love and time to play! I’m currently working a part-time job about 3 days a week, however I am free most of the time! I am also flexible with my schedule! Your pet will be taken care of! I have a lot of experience in taking care of dogs all ages…from months old to years old. To ensure the safety of your pet, I will follow all rules (food, diet, walks, etc.), as well as staying in communication with you!
