Elina is a loving pet owner and a great pet caregiver as well. She has watched our fur baby on multiple occasions only as a favor and during those times, our baby Beau has learned new tricks and unlearned bad ones. What makes Elina special is her ability to communicate with the little ones - they listen and they learn. That kind of affinity with fur people makes a huge difference. I would trust her with my kids - both types of mammals.

Kim and Jeff were very accommodating and took great care of our dog for 5 days while we were on vacation. They sent us daily pictures and we could tell Truffles was getting a lot of attention and good care. Would not hesitate to book with them again!

Jessica is a darling person and probably a pet "empath"! She is communicative and conscientious with both humans and dogs - very tuned in to listening to the requests/needs of both. She was transparent about where my pup would be for care (moving between her home and another house-sit during the week) and talked to me about the other dogs that would be in her care. Jessica sent at least one video every day and also went above and beyond, keeping a daily log of his activities and eating/sleeping schedule. When I picked up my happy healthy pup he was also newly bathed and smiling big smiles. He clearly had so much fun, he seemed bored all day when we got home! I am glad to know her and wish her a thriving business! She deserves it!

Our Miss Lexie had a wonderful stay. Chawntea treated our baby girl like family. She made new furry friends, which helps her socialization skills. Chawntea was so flexible with our ever-changing travel plans. Shout out to Southwest. She sent updates and pics while we were away, which brought smiles to our faces. Without a doubt, we will be using her services in the future.

Truly not enough good things to say about Ethan and our experience with him caring for our dog, Taco. From the beginning, Ethan was super responsive and easy to communicate with him. We right away felt at ease leaving our dog with Ethan and it just worked out perfectly. Every day, Ethan sent us videos and pictures, and it was clear he was loving on our dog as much as he does his own. I’m usually a worry wart when it comes to leaving my dog with anyone. Not this time. And Taco even came home smelling fresh, Ethan bathed him before pickup! More importantly, Taco was a happy pup.

I can't say enough good things about Yunhee & Kevin! My wife and I went on our first big vacation since the beginning of the pandemic, meaning Neko hadn't been separated from us for more than a day in almost three years. She had pretty bad separation anxiety at first, and Yunhee & Kevin were so patient with her for the first couple days while she got acclimated to the new environment. They sent multiple updates (plus photos and videos) each day on her general health and behavior, and it was great to see her slowly open up and eventually make a new friend with Berkeley by the end of the trip! I would happily board Neko with Yunhee & Kevin in the future.

Lauren has been the most amazing care taker to our dog Zorro! She bonded with him immediately, paid attention to his special needs, and gives him an incredible stay everytime we've dropped him off. I can tell Zorro is not ready to leave when we pick him up. Totally worth every penny for the peace of mind and security my wife and I have knowing that our little guy is well cared for at Lauren's.

Francesca is a dog whisperer and sent from the heavens! If you are reading this, take this as your sign to book Francesca if she is available! She cares deeply about animals, and truly gets to know your pet. She loves dogs so much and it shows. Luna was so happy with her, and they went on a ton of adventures at the dog park, and on hiking trails. Luna is extremely high energy and Francesca can handle all of it! Can’t recommend her more, and hope that she can always watch Luna when we’re ever away. Thank you for everything!

Jeff and Beth (plus their kids) are the best! Our dogs love going to visit and they take great care of them. The dogs go on great hikes with Jeff, run in the yard with Mara (resident dog) and the kids. They even let the dogs snuggle with them at night. We’re so lucky to have such a great family to keep our dogs!

Kimia was great with my pup Asef, she was a great communicator leading up to it as well as during. Asef came back very happy and I could tell she was left in good hands. Kimia provided plenty of updates during the stay and made it very easy to arrange the pickup as well. I would definitely have Kimia watch Asef again!

Kat is an exceptional pet care giver and is very sweet, kind, and thoughtful. When I took a break from pet sitting in 2022, I passed off my recurring clients to Kat because I knew Kat was someone they could trust. Each of these clients had only lovely things to say. I’ve seen Kat care for pups and cats of all kinds. You will be happy with Kat taking care of your pets!

Tim and Katherine are such great sitters! They are very accommodating and super flexible due to my ever changing work schedule. They are great at communicating, always updated me with Tako’s pictures. I feel very lucky that I found them and highly recommend their service to anyone! They also have a friendly doggie so it’s another plus that my dog will have a friend to play with as well! Overall I had a great experience with their service and I’m sure Tako is looking forward to see them again! ? ❤️

About: My husband and I have owned and cared for dogs for many years. We don’t have one of our own right now but love dogs and would love to open our house and yard to host your loved one and care for them while you are away. We both work from home and will be able to be there most of the day to let dogs in and out, make sure they are taken care of and show them lots of love. We have a fully fenced in yard with both sun and shade and live on a quiet street in a two story house with lots of room for dogs to explore.

Amee has been taking care of our dog Juicy for the past 15 years. Amee was literally the only person Juicy trusted when we weren’t around. She would always text us pictures and updates with Juicy, like if she ate her food or used the bathroom and it gave us peace of mind knowing Juicy was safe and in the best care while we were out of town. Amee was always caring and loving towards our dog and our dog loved being around her (and our dog was VERY PICKY with who she gets close to - her chihuahua side was very territorial). Amee knows how to approach Juicy when she’s feeling anxious being in a new place and she knows how to make Juicy feel comfortable (sometimes our dog got too comfortable, like sleeping on top of Amee’s pillows lol). Before our Juicy crossed the rainbow bridge, Amee came by to say her goodbyes which meant so much to us. Thank you Amee for all years of love you’ve given us and to our Juicy girl!
