“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!”
“Rosemary was amazing! She sent frequent updates about how Sully was doing and was always on time. We knew Sully was in great hands with Rosemary, which made being out of town and away from home a lot less stressful. Thanks for everything, Rosemary! Sully can’t wait to see you again soon!”

I have experience with overnight care for friends’ dogs as well. I currently have two dogs who I love to walk around church hill.

I aim to provide compassionate care for your animals and use the techniques that you prefer. I will provide company, exercise, food, medication, and hygiene for your animals when necessary.
About: I’ve been caring for pets since I was able my neighbors and friends used to call me the pet reader I used to live on a farm so I’m very familiar with a lot of animals I am currently unemployed and have plenty of time to walk and take care of pets i’m never really busy Plus I will always make time for them Well I will have to say I live in an apartment but it’s very spacious I have two cats but they are very nice and stick to themselves, but I do have a dog park close to my house where I normally would bring the dogs to play
“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!”
About: Hi! I️ reside in good ole Bon Air and I️’m currently going to school online to become a certified herbalist. I’m working in the restaurant industry part time and would love to pick up some side jobs caring for your pet because I love animals dearly! I’ve lived my entire life surrounded by animals and when I️ was 14 I️ went out and got my very own rescue. She is not your normal dog, and does not act like a normal dog so I️ have experience dealing with your not so average dog. I inherited my dads three Chesapeake bay retrievers when he passed away and now I️ sadly only have my youngest remaining but she is my world. I also have a 105 pound yellow lab that lives with my mom and he’s the most lovable boy. I have a cat who was my father’s and she’s still thriving to this day. It’s safe to say I️ absolutely love animals and I️ am very confident in my ability to care for not only my own pets, but yours as well. I️ would be beyond happy and grateful to get the opportunity to meet your animals and care for them when you are not available! After all, they always deserve the best. :~) Since I️ am doing online school, I️ have availability all day on the days I️ don’t work in the restaurant and I️ only work at night so I’m available every morning! I️ am willing to care for your pets any way that you prefer and for how they are trained. I️ take my girl for daily walks and/or runs and have her on a consistent feeding schedule. I️ cook green beans, carrots, and broccoli and sometimes chicken for my dog to have twice a day with her dry food as well. Her health is just as important to me as my own. My pets are house broken and free roam around the house. They are also allowed on beds and furniture. If you do not prefer that for yours, I️ will respect that!

“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!”

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.
“Christina was great- she was responsive, reliable, communicated each day, and sent pictures. We were lucky to find her. Thank you Christina!”
“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.”
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.
“Brittany goes out of her way to make sure that we and our pets are well cared for! We don’t leave them behind very often but, when necessary, we love it when Brittany takes over! She is like having a favorite aunt show up and the dogs and cats love her! Brittany is also very responsive to communications and provides timely updates on a daily basis, so we are aware of what’s happening in our pets lives while we’re away. I would not hesitate to use her pet sitting services anytime we need help!”
