“Excellent dog walker! Timely and with great communication skills. Very easy to work with and accommodating with any quirks or issues your pets may have.”
“Kayley was fantastic! Gave our boy a good long walk which is his favorite thing. She even cooked some carrots for him since he’s too much a wuss to eat normal or frozen ones lol we will definitely use Kayley again!”

About: I’m 28, and I have taken care of many family animals and I’d love to commit to be your pets sitter. I’ll make sure that your pet is treated like my own and they’ll never lack love and care. I’m pet sitting full time. I’m gone about 3-4 hours a day total. So I have plenty of time to spend with your pet ! I live in a 1 bedroom apartment but I love going outside so I definitely have plenty of room to play with animals. We can walk to a nearby park.
“This was our first time using a dog walker and Lila was beyond great! She was so open to a meet and greet to begin with and was able to spend some time with our dog while we weren’t home. The updates through Rover were so helpful and kept our minds at ease! Lila even included a bunch of photos each day! We can’t recommend her enough!”
“There is no other person on earth that loves animals more than Axel. I have seen Axle deal with all kinds of dogs and cats and most of the time, the animal loves the attention and care they receive. Axle has cared for my dogs on numerous occasions and I have been very happy with the care they receive. Axle is very trustworthy and responsible when it comes to taking care of peoples' pets. I highly recommend that you hire Axle as he will be a great asset for your company.”
“Michelle is an extremely responsible and reliable pet sitter. She is one of the most caring and loving pet sitters you could ask for! I would trust her in a heartbeat. She will send you photos and make sure your pet is well taken care of. Look no further for the best pet sitter that you can get.”
“Chloe did a great job with my pup on short notice! She followed all my instructions perfectly and was able to handle my large dog that sometimes pulls.”
“Erian watched our two yorkies while we were on vacation. She arrived on time for every walk, sent videos and pictures, and let us know how the pups were doing. She also made sure to refresh their food and water and played with them. Erian is extremely trustworthy, responsible, and kind. We will recommend her to all our friends and family, and already plan on hiring her for our next vacation! Excellent job, Erian!”
“Kevasia has been a responsible, loving, fun, and very reliable pet caregiver. I’ve always felt comfortable leaving dogs around her, she makes sure they are happy, fed, played with, clean, and cared for fully.”
About: I have accumulated three years of invaluable pet care experience, primarily through offering pet sitting services in my hometown of Manchester, MD, and through working with both Pet Valu and Petco. During this time, I have had the privilege of caring for a diverse range of pets, from playful puppies to wise old cats, and also our scaled, feathered, and fishy friends. My passion for animal well-being has driven me to ensure their safety, happiness, and overall comfort. Now, as I embark on a new chapter in Richmond, VA, I'm excited to extend my expertise and dedication to pet owners in this community, providing reliable and compassionate pet care services that prioritize the happiness and health of your furry, feathered, and scaled family members. Given my current status as an independent artist running my own art business, I have the flexibility to offer pet sitting, pet check-ins, and dog walking services for the majority of my days in Richmond, VA. While I do have some weekend commitments related to art events, I will always provide a clear and updated schedule of my availability, ensuring transparency for pet owners. Rest assured, I am committed to maintaining a balance between my passion for art and my dedication to providing dependable and loving pet care services, ensuring that your animal companions receive the attention and care that they deserve. Having spent the last two years of my life living with two dogs, three cats, and a betta fish, I've cultivated a deep understanding of the needs and behaviors of these beloved companions. While transitioning to Richmond I will not be residing with pets for a while, however I am committed to maintaining the same level of care and attention in my client's homes. I prioritize their safety, comfort, and overall well-being. My experience and genuine love for animals ensure that I provide a nurturing and reliable environment, delivering quality services that pet owners can trust and depend on.
“Javahdi was an amazing help for my 3 miniature poodles! She’s on time and has so much patience. No task is too large and everything is done efficiently. My dogs absolutely love her!”
“Emily is amazing! She’s cares for your pets like they are her own. She is kind, patient, courteous and thoughtful. If she has questions or concerns she will reach out. She continually provides updates and photos of you babes. Happy to have Emily in our “pack”.”
“Emma took great care of our dog for one week. We received regular updates, Emma is a great communicator. We felt so confident and good on our vacation because we knew our dog Tori was being well cared for. She sent us cute pictures. She stayed with him for extended periods of time and followed all the instructions for Snacks. Our elderly dog was in great shape when we came home. We are so grateful.”
About: My mom works in veterinary medicine so we always had so many different animals around. Cats, dogs, birds, Snakes, guinea pigs; a little of everything. I ended up also working in vet med and have been working directly with animals for 6 years now. The last 2 years I have worked in a fear free clinic and have a special love for giant breed dogs! Evenings and weekends are the best times for me for drop ins and walks; but I have flexible availability throughout the day to meet your needs. I have a two story town house, so even though I have cats in the home, they will be upstairs and a baby gate will be on the stairs. I have a small shaded yard and a bigger open field behind us. We are close to a road, so pets will not be allowed outside without a leash as well as a slip lead if you are okay with that. I will also ask for any dogs being taken on a walk to have a leash and a slip lead as well. I will provide the lead.
“I owe Darnell x100000. Everything I could ask for in a walker. I was nervous because my dog can be a puller and especially crazy with new people . Darnell took great care and things went better than I could imagine. Will definitely hope that he’ll be available in the future . Ice loved him! Thanks again bro !”
“She’s so great with our picky pup!”
“Wonderful experience. Blythe was great!”
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.
“Tori is delightful! She has great communication and took wonderful care of our girl. Will definitely use her on the regular. Came home to a happy pup!”
“Melanie has watched my dogs before, she is definitely a "dog person" gives them so much love and attention. She gets down on the floor with them, petting and rubbing them. She has been dependable and flexible for our needs.”
