Lori was ABSOLUTELY incredible. She saved me from a very last minute pickle, and I’m so glad so was able to babysit my Ollie so last minute. I got daily updates and pictures, as well as such amazing assurance that Ollie would be getting both his pills had his much-hated ear drops. I came back from the weekend and his ear infection was almost completely gone! And he was POOPED! A true testament to what a great time he had. Definitely recommend!

The communication with the Allie was outstanding, start to finish. She promptly responded to our initial inquiry and took the time to schedule a meet-and-greet. During this meeting, she asked comprehensive questions about our dog's routine, dietary needs and any specific quirks or preferences. This attention to detail immediately instilled confidence in their ability to provide personalized care. Throughout our time away, Allie sent pics of our dog, reassuring us that all was well. We felt really comfortable leaving our dog with her, as her house was clean, safe and filled with positive energy. Our dog seemed right at home from the beginning. We would recommend Allie to our friends and would use her services again in the future.

Patrick is a great dog person and loves to take care of them. He took such good care of our Frenchie while we were on vacation that he didn’t want to go with us when we picked him up. Patrick communicated every detail of the day as he took Oreo to the beach, grocery store and bookstore. Oreo had a better time than we did on vacation and it showed. We have highly recommended Patrick to our friends and won’t hesitate to call him again for future needs.

I looked many hours for the right family to leave our Westie, Piper, with during a trip to Europe. When I met Donna and Roland at their home in Newbury, I felt so good about their experienced background with dogs. They advertised that they would allow a small dog to sleep in their bed which is what Piper is use to so this was another perk for Piper. Their home is very dog friendly and I loved the way they decorated it, inside and outside. Piper needed some extra meds while we were away and they followed all the instructions for her. When we picked her up, she was very relaxed and we knew she had a good vacation away from home. (Previously, we had people stay with her at our home.) She got to visit with another dog and a cat that lives with Donna and Roland, walked places that she had never walked before with Roland and was lovingly cared for by them. It was so good to see her so happy and content when we arrived to take her home. We will continue to book with Donna from now on and are so grateful for people like them who love her as we do. A+ to a wonderful care-free experience !!!

Crystal and Steve gave my dogs great care. Medicine and food was given as instructed. One of my dogs has epilepsy. Steve did let me know that he had a mild seizure and he handled it well. They did not send pictures but was great with responding how the dogs were doing when I checked in. When I picked the dogs up they were both happy and relaxed. This communicated to me that they were well taken care of. I’m very happy and satisfied with their stay and will definitely book with Crystal and Steve again.

Abby was wonderful with our dogs! She is definitely a “dog person”, and took such great care of our pups - who can certainly be a handful. She was communicative and thorough. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone! It was so wonderful to have peace of mind while we were away knowing our dogs were well-cared for.

We've used Hyesun to sit for us several times now. She takes excellent care of our dogs, walks them several times daily, has a clean, safe, house and makes the effort to send photos and keep us in the loop. I really cannot recommend her enough. I'm sure we'll be going back to her for our future sitting needs.

Lisa and her family were so wonderful with our pup, Winnie. Her home is not only beautiful and safe and we felt confident leaving her in the comforts of this home. Lisa shared updates, photos and anything else Winnie may have enjoyed while she was in her care. 10 out of 10! We picked our Winnie up and we were so reassured that leaving her with Lisa was a great thing. Highly recommend her! -Erica

About: I am an active individual and have always had a tremendous love for animals. I grew up with a small cockapoo dog for 15 years and a bigger ridgeback named Sage who is still alive :). I also have 2 amazing cats. I graduated from Bryant University where I was a student/athlete playing basketball. Nowadays I enjoy being active and spending time with friends. I work from home and have a very flexible schedule. I have a few hours in the morning before work (6 am -8 am) where I can have longer visits/walks. Closer visits are preferred during the day where I can take a 30-45 minute break from work. I have a fenced in yard. I also am very active and enjoy going on walks especially with the company of a dog.I have a family that loves animals and is extremely patient with them.
