“Our dogs are spoiled lap chihuahuas that demand constant attention and love. And Ana has been BY FAR the best dog sitter we have ever had. We leave our dogs with Ana with 100% peace of mind that they are being spoiled, loved, and well taken care of. She is super responsable and communicative, often sharing photos and asking questions to make sure your furbabies have all they need. Our dogs love Ana so much, you can tell she really bonds with them. We cannot recommend her enough, she’s the most wonderful pet walker, dog and house sitter! And she is just a lovely kind hearted person!”
“Matt takes care of my 13 yr old Brittany Spaniel & 3 cats whenever I am out of town. This has included my week long summer vacation and winter trip. He has also served on shorter trips of one or two nights. Matt sent pictures and videos of his time with my animals; I felt like he went the extra mile with walks, playtime, treats and litter care.”
“We had to travel overseas for 3 weeks and hired Jenny as a house and pet sitter. We are SO happy we did! She is compassionate, caring, responsible, clean. We never had to worry about anything while we did our travels. Joey loves her so much, we can see now he misses her. She took great care of our home and our beloved fur baby. We highly recommend Jenny and will hire her any time we have to travel and leave Joey behind.”
“Brenda was very thorough getting to our dogs and while watching them. Brenda made sure to keep in great communication and we would definitely recommend her for watching your house and pets!”
“Brielle did a good job. Didn’t receive as much updates as I would have liked but everything seemed to be fine when we got back.”
“Rosemary has always been very reliable and so so loving with our fur babies! We have 3 dogs and they are always very excited to see her. We cannot recommend her highly enough!”
About: Every dog is different and have their necessities, I love knowing better them so I can make the most of our time together, something they'll love and enjoy. I had experience feeding, bathing and walking dogs, any size any age. I'm currently working full-time, but I do have some extra time that I'd love spending taking care of your dog or cat, I'm available after 3 pm every single day, except for Wednesday. I like to know what is the best care of your fur baby when I take care of them in your home, what it's the diet to follow, how often should I take it for potty breaks, any activity that its need it, I work best when they talk to me about how they expectations are and how to take care of their pets.
“I recently had Ryan take care of my Aussie, Apollo, while I was away, and I couldn't be happier with the service I received. I knew Apollo would be in good hands. He was extremely friendly and professional. Throughout my trip, Ryan provided regular updates and photo, which really put my mind at ease. I could tell that Apollo was happy and well-cared for, which made my time away from home much less stressful. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a trustworthy and reliable pet sitter. He exceeded my expectations in every way and I will definitely be using his services again in the future!”
“Amber is the best pet caregiver I could ask for. She treat my dogs like they were her own, along with my cats. One of my dogs had his paw in a sling and she even was very patient and took care of all of his needs. She’s very sweet and playful and my animals were excited every time she returned. She stayed on top of her schedule and made sure everyone was well fed and groomed.”
“Awesome! Will use again when needed.”
“Katherine by far has been the best pet sitter I have ever had. I have 2 dogs that just love and get excited for her to come take them on walks. She goes above and beyond and isn’t just there to get paid. She truly loves dogs and enjoys them as much as they enjoy her. Would recommend to anyone with any type of pet.”
“Kelsey is one of the most caring, respectful, and hardworking people I've ever met! We lived together for three years in several different apartments. I was with Kelsey when she adopted a cat named Cricket in 2020. Kelsey has always been incredibly attentive to Cricket's needs; when she was first adopted, Cricket was a small, shy young cat who balked at any human attention and hid in the bathroom for the first week in our home. But over the years Kelsey has expertly coaxed Cricket out of her shell, always respecting a cat's much-needed boundaries, never pressuring her too much while making it known that she is loved. Today, Cricket is healthier than ever and loves to cuddle up with Kelsey on the couch. She is almost unrecognizable from the traumatized cat we first met, and it's all thanks to Kelsey's patience and excellent caregiving abilities. I can't recommend her enough.”
“Sarah did a phenomenal job! She sent frequent pictures and updates on our two pups. We could tell they were in great hands and got lots of attention and love. Our house was clean and exactly how we left it. We will absolutely book again.”
“Hannah is a very caring person. She treats my pets like they’re her own! She works at a veterinarian hospital and is so awesome with the pets there!”
“Oriolyne L... will always be my first option for my Rex (jack Russell terrier). It’s not just her love for animals she takes her time to get to know my rexi especially since he was adopted and can be a little temperamental..She has a special bond with my rexi as she calls him her “toots”...I have no worries when he is in her care and so appreciative for what she done for us.”
“Jessica is great with animals! She's watched my dogs and guinea pig several times. Always sends videos and photos to keep me updated on meals, walks, naps.”
“Jeilianne, was amazing with my baby boy! She went above and beyond!!! Would definitely recommend her l”
“Nick LOVES animals. Cats, dogs, bearded dragons, rats, opossums…Nick has cared for animals that require daily medications. Willing to share a bed with those needy pets when necessary. Rescued stray dogs and makes sure all the neighborhood cats have food. Nick even rescued a baby opossum at college when it became trapped behind a gutter. Taught own dogs basic commands like sit, leave it, and hug time. Nick is a superb pet sitter, dog walker, and cuddles of all animals.”
About: I have two cats who are my babies. I’ve grown up in a pet-loving family and experienced caring for cats, dogs, small birds, reptiles, chickens and a goat. I have experience giving cats and dogs their medications, brushing and bathing, special diets, mobility issues, and shy pets. I will take time to gain your pet’s trust and provide them with personalized care. I am active and can provide longer walks or jogging with your dog if requested. I live and work in Gainesville. I can provide care before and after work on weekdays, with lunchtime availability depending on proximity. On weekends I can provide care at any time. I can come to your home for up to 3 visits per weekday and more visits on weekends. I will provide fresh water and food, litter box care, light cleaning as needed, brushing and bathing, playing, backyard time or longer walking as needed. I can provide medication or other special care. I will send pictures, videos, and any communication to assure your pet is cared for. If in my home, your pet would be with me and my two cats who are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. I do not have small children, and it is a smoke-free home. My cats are dog friendly. I am active on weekends and could take your dogs on walks at the park, nature trail, or hiking as requested.
“Paty is my #1 go to to babysit my dog when I need a sitter. She’s treats my dog so well, loves her like her own. My dog loves being around Paty. Mind you she lived an hour away from me and I still make the drive than with someone closer because I trust her with my dog :)”
