I recently hired Kyle as a house and dogsitter, and I couldn't be more impressed with his service. From the moment he stepped into my home, I felt at ease knowing my house and beloved pets were in capable hands. Not only did he maintain the cleanliness and security of my home, but he also went above and beyond in caring for my furry companions. He followed all instructions meticulously, ensuring my pets' routines were maintained and that they received plenty of love and attention. Kyle demonstrated exceptional responsibility and reliability throughout his stay, and I returned to find my house in impeccable condition and my pets happy and healthy. I highly recommend Kyle for anyone in need of a trustworthy and caring house and dogsitter. His professionalism and genuine love for animals truly set him apart.

This was the second time Keaton took care of my dog and I couldn’t have asked for a better pet caretaker! My dog got sick right before I had to go out of town and Keaton took the best care of him.

My husband and I had never used a pet sitting service before and were very nervous, but the second we met Kim we knew that our pups would be in good hands. She came to our house a month before our trip to meet us, get to know the dogs, and to answer all our questions, which really alleviated our worries. While staying at the house she loved on our babies like we would, sent us plenty of pictures throughout the day and gave us the option to video chat if needed. She was always quick to respond to us and was truly a joy to work with. I highly recommend Kim!!! She made our mini-vacation so much more enjoyable!

Marlowe was fantastic. She kept me informed about my babies exactly as I requested. She was very comfortable with my 3 big dogs, and kept them on their normal routine. I will absolutely request her services again.

Michael was super communicative and took amazing care of my 65lb dog while I was away over a holiday weekend. Cooper can be reactive and worry when he is in the care of others, but Michael managed his anxiety like a dream! Would definitely use Michael again!

Kayli did a wonderful job taking care of our girls while we were out of town. She provided regular updates and pictures and reached out when she noticed one of our dogs was chewing at her paw. It was just some mild irritation, but I appreciated her paying close attention to our dogs and letting me know there was a possible issue. I'd use her again and would recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter.

Emily is fantastic! After meeting, we were immediately put at ease with leaving our pups with them. Emily dealt with our high anxiety dog like a pro and reassured me all was well throughout the visit. Our pack can be a handful but Emily had no problems and went above and beyond for them. I cannot say enough positive things! We will most definitely be using Emily again. Highly recommend!

I appreciate that when Aubrey came to meet me and my dog in advance she took notes and asked a lot of questions. My dog was obviously well taken care of from the photos, video, and updates I received. Also, I am completely blown away that upon returning my home is cleaner than I left it. I wouldn’t hesitate to book Aubrey again to care for my energetic, reactive (yet perfect?‍♀️) dog.

About: I’ve been pet sitting since high school year. I have experience with both cats and dogs as well as bunnies! I am also able to help administer medicine and have experience with bottle feeding and kittens. I have four cats of my own—and also foster. At the moment, I am unable to board your pet in my apartment. I’m a current grad student at vcu living in scotts! As of right now, I work full time as a teacher from 8:30-2 M-F. On weekends, I volunteer with a cat rescue to adopt out kitties from 11-2. I have a pretty flexible schedule and am able to walk/drop in multiple times a day. In my care, I have a separate room just for your pet in my apartment. I’m able to follow any instructions you may have(ex: walking, crate, administering meds, etc).

Kiera was wonderful with our two elderly dogs and senior cat. She administered meds, catered to their individual needs, and sent daily pics. My chihuahua mix is wary with strangers but was cuddling with Kiera in no time. Kiera even brought mealworms to feed our Venus flytrap plant -- which was starving since I only gave it water. She also went above and beyond her duties by helping with a bit of a family emergency involving our travel plans. When we returned from our trip, the house was in good order and the animals were relaxed and happy. She as also prompt, communicative, and professional. We highly recommend Kiera.

Megan is a lifesaver! We have never left our puppy before and wanted to travel for our daughter’s graduation in NYC. We never had to worry for a minute. So grateful she stayed at our home with both dogs. We highly recommend Megan to home sit.

I’m so grateful that Gena stayed with my dog, Ruby, and cat, Miles for the week!! She was awesome and took extra good care of them - carrying my senior dog up the stairs and bringing a toy for my cat to play with. She sent pics and was very communicative during the week. I will definitely be using her again and recommend her to anyone who needs someone to help care for your fur babies! Thank you Gena!
