Jessica was an amazing house sitter. The boys got spoiled with her and she was so loving to them. Hey miss her already. She was very prompt with communication. We plan on using her again in the future. Thank you Jessica!!

Chloe was great. She paid attention to my dogs behaviors and needs during our mert and greet. She updated me throughout the stay with cute photos. Chloe also helped around the house for the last minutes cleaning I couldn't get done before leaving for a plane. I definitely hope to hire her again.

Allison was amazing! She stayed at our house with our two big dogs over the weekend while we were getting married. We had a lot going on, but she provided updates to ease our minds to know our boys were being cared for. When we got home, our house was cleaner than we left it. She is so great, and we would recommend her to anyone!

About: I’ve had several years of experience with cats and dogs. My family and I have 2 dogs, Koda and Leila, who are 3-year-old Great Pyrenees. We’ve also got a tuxedo cat—Sebastian—who is 7. In my spare time, I am a part time Physical Therapist, stay at home mom and always looking to spend more time with dogs and cats! My husband and I have a little boy who adores animals and has been around ours since he was born. My current schedule allows me to be flexible with time and location! Our home has a big fenced in yard that we’re happy to let your dogs run around in, or I’m always happy to take your doggies out for a walk (or run, if they’re up for it) no matter the time of year. If you’re more comfortable with a stay at your home, I’m more than happy to drop in or stay the night depending on your comfortability level!

Kate did a great job house sitting my 2 corgis! She sent lots of photos and videos which was great to know how they were doing while we were away. I am the pet parent that comes with a 4 page guide and she followed all of my instructions and even left the house clean and tidy. She also stepped in on short notice after my mom was unable to watch my pups over the weekend. She was always willing to stop by an extra time if needed and kept in contact during our travel days which was great.

I’ve used Jodie multiple times now and could not be happier. Having a senior dog with medical issues makes it difficult to find the right person and Jodie and her girls are fantastic with him as well as my cat (and guinea pigs)! I can travel and feel confident my fur babies are being well cared for!

About: I’ve cared for my own dog since I was little. Taking them on walks and playing with them. We have a senior pup now, who is unfortunately sick, but That means I’m used to being gentle and loving, even if it means not playing too rough with them. On the flipside though, I’m completely willing to go match some crazy energy when they want to give it:) I’m currently in high school so that means I am at school from 8 to 4. But outside of that, I’m completely happy to spend time with pups and cats and just give whatever care I can! I don’t think my home is the best place for other animals. I have two cats. One of them is pretty anxious and two dogs who love all animals, to play a lot. But I’m happy to go in others and take care of dogs outside of my home!

Talia did an amazing job taking care of our elderly dog in our home. She made sure our pet was well cared for and even brought in packages for us while staying overnight. We will absolutely use her again when we travel.

About: I have been dogsitting for friends and family for years. I have done overnight stays at their homes, hosted their dogs in my home, gone on walks with them, and just went over to let them out. I love dogs and interact with each one as I would with my own. I have dogs at home and recently helped my family train our puppy. I have had elderly dogs in my home that I have helped to care for. I recently graduated from college. Over the summer, I will be nannying in the afternoons 3-4 days a week for 4 hours daily. I will start teaching in August. My weekend schedule will continue to be flexible as I start teaching. In client's homes, I will be very respectful of their things. I will treat each dog as if it were my dog. I will do as the owners ask. I am very flexible and will follow a schedule or details owners give me. I try to make dogs as comfortable as possible while their owners are out of town.

Sara and her son are THE BEST! They did a great job caring for our three dogs for a full week and were great communicators. I booked the wrong end time and they were above and beyond accommodating. I hope to have them sit for us again soon!

Erika is always very dedicated to anything that she does as well as extremely responsible and disciplined. She has two fur babies of her own that she thinks the world of and cares for so much. I have also seen her care for other animals that are hers that she still treats with the same love and care as her own.
