“Rosemary did SUCH a good job with house- & dog-sitting my pup in my apartment. Her attention to detail with the care instructions I gave, and how well she accommodated lots of instructions for a higher-maintenance dog, gave me so much peace of mind as I was out of town. I'll be booking her again when I'm traveling next! Thank you!!”
“Kelly took absolutely stellar care of my cat Ophie and my apartment while I was out of town for two weeks. She was incredibly flexible, communicative and accommodating (I even needed to extend my trip two times at the last minute). Most importantly, she worked true magic with my cat, who is usually very standoffish with anyone other than myself and tends to shut down if I go away for any amount of time due to separation anxiety. After just a few days Ophie was letting Kelly brush her and hanging out in the main room, going about her usual routine. By the end of the trip she was actually hanging out with Kelly on the couch!! I've genuinely never seen her so at ease with anyone other than myself in all 11 years of her life. I couldn't be happier with the service Kelly provided. It's one thing to know you pet is being taken good care of while you're away. It's an entirely different matter to know that they're actually enjoying themselves too! Kelly was able to give me that peace of mind and I couldn't be more grateful. I returned from my trip to a spotless apartment and a very happy kitty. I will absolutely be reaching out to her again the next time I need to go out of town! Thanks Kelly!!”
“She is amazing! Our dog was obviously pampered and much more relaxed than usual when we get back. I’ve never been so confident that she was treated well and our house was exceptionally well cared for as well. She even taught our old dog a new game. 100% recommended.”
“Courtney is incredible! She took the dogs on so many walks. She connected with them almost immediately. She let me know when she was coming and going, and kept me updated the whole time. She’s a 10 Star!”
“Mackenzie tool great care of our two dogs! She sent cute pics and left our house in good shape. Our pups were calm and happy when we got back. I wouldn't hesitate to book Mackenzie again!”
“Katelyn was such a great sitter. She helped by staying at our home over the holidays, thoughtfully caring for both our pups and home. Very attentive to our dogs needs and provided regular updates. Would highly recommend!!”
“Gabby was amazing with our sweet pup! We have an older dog and Gabby sent many photos and spent a lot of time with her. And the house was immaculate after she left! Highly recommend!”

“Andrew was an extraordinary sitter for our Maine Coon cat, Simi. He clearly adores animals, he was invested in supporting our routines with her, his communication was great – – at least one funny picture each day!— he was extremely responsive to our questions, and initiated appropriate communication as needed. He also did a couple of wonderful new things – – she got her used to her automated new litter box, which she is now using regularly, and he invented a new game for her with the treats that we usually give her, that we are continuing to do now that we are back. We loved having Andrew be Simi‘s new best friend, and we have already re-booked him for our next trip.”
“Kylie was great! She sent a ton of photos of the cats, sent detailed daily updates, and really eased my mind while I was away for the weekend. She’s great with shy kitties and was able to get my nervous boy to take his medicine. Thanks for being so good with them!”
“Becca was great! so good with Luna, when i came home, i think she was hoping to see her again, will definitely, hire again! Such a great experience vs. kennels where is seems more impersonal and the little dogs literally get the short end of the stick.”
“Elizabeth was great! My dog took to her right away. It was my first time leaving my dog at home without me, and she can get very anxious about change. The weekend went off without a hitch.”
“Amanda was an amazing sitter! She sent great updates and photos of her time with our pups and they absolutely adored her. It was great knowing that they were in good hands while we were gone and we will absolutely use her sitting services in the future!”
About: I just retired & have lots of time on my hands. I enjoy pets & have reliable transportation to get where I need to go. It’s a good fit because I just retired June 7th and I believe pet sitting will work for me. I’m really an active retiree, but I can make it work. I can’t watch peoples pets at my apartment, but I can watch peoples pets at their home. I can walk your pets and spend time with them.
“Sophia did a wonderful job taking care of my cat and dog overnight! My dog is scared of new people but Sophia went above and beyond to meet her twice before staying over. Zena warmed up to her after a bit so I appreciate Sophia’s patience with her! Now Zena’s looking forward to her next play date! Thank you!”
“Chloe was so good with our pup! She was great with communication and sent the cutest pictures! She also stayed a bit later while we were running late!”
“Marlowe did an incredible job sitting for my babies and my house. She is conscientious, thorough, communicative, and responsible. She sent pictures throughout her 4 day stay and even took my big dog running with her. I will definitely use her again!”

“Jordan was awesome! She came by for a meet and greet prior to our trip, and she communicated with me each day to give a report. We came home to 3 calm, happy and well cared-for pets as well as a clean house! Having Jordan stay with our pets gave us comfort and allowed us to have a completely stress-free time away! I highly recommend Jordan C - outstanding pet sitter!”
“Danny is great! He often comes by my house to watch my dog when i'm out of town or having a long day at work and i trust him completely with my dog Gus. He always sends photos of the dog looking so happy, and i know he's going the extra mile and getting in a game of fetch or tug with the dog every time he pops by. I've worked with him professionally as well and I can confirm that he is responsible, timely, and an all around great guy. Nobody loves dogs and cats more than Danny!”
“Rachel was amazing! She helped with our dogs while we were gone for the weekend, and both dogs (and our cat) loved her and were so excited to see her. She stayed in communication with us the entire weekend and sent great pictures with updates. She followed all the instructions we left. Both dogs have terrible separation anxiety, but they didn’t seem to miss a beat while we were gone. Would definitely recommend!”
