“Aidan was very responsive both before the booking as well as during the visit. He was patient with our senior dog and willing to put booties on him (he's been sliding on our wood floors) as well as pick him up to take him outside because he's no longer doing well with stairs. We are very grateful for his help and Ryoku was comfortable with him!”
“Great pet sitter! Took wonderful care of our pup Boyd, would recommend!”
“Kristina was great! asked all the right questions and stayed in touch with pictures. I wouldn't hesitate to book her again.”
“Bessie is not only exceptionally communicative and responsible - she is also exceptionally loving. When my pupper is left in her care, I know that all of his needs will be met including his need for love and attention! As a dog and cat owner herself, Bessie understands that caring for pets is caring for family. Every pet has their own special requirements and preferences, and Bessie honors every one. If you choose Bessie to care for your pet, your pet will get a new best friend and you will get the peace of mind that everything is exactly how you would want it. Like many pet owners, I have a list of people to contact for petsitting/walking but Bessie is first on my list!”
“Bev is an awesome in home dog sitter. The dogs get their food, meds, daily walk and she cleans up the yard from their daily's as well. When we return she has stripped her bed and the house is in order. Our pups are calm and happy with no signs of being stressed while we are away.”
About: I have had dogs all my life and in the past few years have studied dog behavior and training. I am a firm believer in positive reinforcement and prioritize establishing trust, confidence, and good communication with every dog I work with. Whether your dog is just learning the ropes or is an off-leash veteran, I will meet them where they're at and make sure they have fun along the way! I enjoy establishing a working relationship with clients and have seen consistency be a key factor in working toward any training goal. That being said, I am open to more sporadic pet-care needs and am here to support you in fostering your dogs well-being! In the summer I work full time on a farm, but in the off season my schedule is very flexible. I am available for mornings, evenings, midday drops in, and longer adventure excursions! When working with a dog safety and comfort is my top priority. I ensure the dog is slowly intruded to every new environment and give lots of treats to establish a positive association. Before taking your dog on a neighborhood, I make sure I have an understanding of their comfort around other dogs, children, cars, etc. so that I can help them work through a situation that might evoke fear or aggression.
“Why does Isabella get 5 stars? Because every expectation I had was surpassed! She does it all: Daily updates with pictures, enrichment activities and doggie games, long walks, thoughtful meal prep, my dog was as content as I've ever seen her. 10/10, will absolutely use her services in the future and you should too!”
“Frankie was great and responsive while I was away! She checked in with pics and updates on the pups and she made sure they got out at the times that they needed, it felt good to know they were in good hands!”
“Mildred was wonderful with our dog, Maple. We were gone for a week and it was a relief to know that Maple was being well cared for in her familiar environment. Mildred sent pictures and updates every day to let us know how they were doing and what they were up to- taking walks in the woods, playing frisbee, and just hanging out. They really bonded and I think Maple misses her! It was also comforting to know that our house was in good hands while we were gone. We came back to a house that was cleaner than it was when we left it. We would definitely want to have Mildred house-sit with Maple again.”
“This was our first time leaving Max with a sitter. She was wonderful and Max loved her. We will definitely use the service again and Sukhpran she was great with Max. I would definitely recommend Sukhpran for a dog sitter.”
“Avery was wonderful with my chiweenie. She was respectful and I would highly recommend her.”
“Kathryn has taken care of our pets (we have 3 cats and a dog) on multiple occasions. She has been 100% reliable and obviously cares about our furry monsters. She is very easy to communicate with and often sends us a photo of what we are missing at home. I would absolutely recommend Kathryn to anyone!”
“Jamie is a very caring and compassionate caretaker. She loves animals and is great with them. I would completely trust her to care for your pet.”
About: All neighbors in my community have relied on me to walk and board their dogs since I was young! I’ve taken dogs on nature walks, car rides, and made sure they felt at home with me or while I was watching them when their families are on vacation. All pets have been comfortable with me and are ecstatic when I come back to visit or board them. I work a part time job but in my free time I’m available to take care of pets daily or at night as well! I love to keep busy and occupied with my pets at home and would love to continue that while living at my apartment up in Vermont. I am happy to care for your pets to your preference. I can take them out as frequently as possible even though I don’t have a backyard. I’m happy to go on frequent walks and crate them as well if needed.
“Lia did an amazing job watching our dog Fitz - I could tell he was in great hands. She provided regular updates and photos while we were gone. Lia is caring, dependable, and so so kind. It was clear that she loves animals and I fully trusted her to take care of Fitz - he was very happy with her around. I would absolutely recommend Lia for any pet care needs and hope to use her pet care services again in the future.”
“Nicole did a great job for us taking care of our dog & cat. She was responsive & very responsible & an excellent communicator. She is also very kind. We would definitely hire her again. We never worried when we were away about our pets! Thank you Nicole!”
“Tess O’Brien is great with dogs. She’s so enthusiastic and playful with them. They always enjoy her company. She’s a great walker and will take them on hikes in the woods on the streets wherever they need or want to go.!”
“Gabriella has cared for our family dog and cats on multiple occasions. She is patient and thorough as our dog is older and needs more attention. Gabriella sent updates while we were away to ensure everything was taken care of. I would recommend Gabriella as a great pet caregiver.”
“We can't say enough good things about our experience with Greta. Our dogs were very relaxed and calm when we returned home from our weekend away, unlike the experience we had when they had stayed in a kennel. She cared for them and our cat, who is on special medications with ease. We recommend her without hesitation for overnights or a drop in visit.”
“Kyra took very good care of Lucy! She contacted me when she arrived to set my mind at ease. She sent us pictures each day and kept in touch. We will gladly have Kyra watch Lucy again.”
