Christi is amazing! As a sitter she is always on time, flexible and takes real good care of our pup. Bonus, she takes great pics of Poseidon. He loves when she visits. Definitely will request again. Thank you!

Melissa took care of our cat on our last trip and we had no doubt we wanted her again for this past trip. She also watched over our dog this time and he warmed up right to her. She keeps an open communication, no issues with administering medications and she sent us daily pics of the furbies which were also great captured moments to let us know they were in good hands. You won't be disappointed to have Melissa watch your pets. Very professional and courteous. Until next time...Thank you again!

Elizabeth is amazing - she takes such good care of our pup when she drops in to let him out and plays with him. She leaves a great overview of how the visit went and I love the pictures she sends. She is attentive and actively plays with him and I can tell he loves playing with her.

Karolina is amazing!! She was very accommodating when I needed someone last minute to drop in on my boys, and she made sure they were well taken care of while I was away for the weekend. Would definitely choose her again in the future!

Donna is a warm, caring person who LOVES dogs. She treats every dog with love, playfulness & a good heart. She's very sensitive to their well-being- always watching for a change in behavior, if they seem sad or hurt & immediately helps them herself or takes them to vet. She considers dogs little humans that just don't talk the way we humans do, but understands their needs & wants. You won't find a better dog walker than Donna.

About: I’ve taken care of every size and kind of dog, and grew up with very large dogs. I earned a certification for grooming and was a dog groomer for several years. I’m a full-time mom looking for part-time work, so I have plenty of availability to take care of your fur babies. I love all animals and treat every one as if they are my own. My previous experience in Compliance ensures that I’m a rule follower with attention to detail. Whatever you and your pet needs or wants, I’m here to make sure that is accomplished.

This was our first time to meet Lily. She dropped in on our cat daily for 9 days and came prior to our trip to meet him. Each time she was punctual, pleasant, and professional. She responded quickly as I had questions, and left us a daily photo! He was a happy and well-cared-for boy when we got home. We’ll definitely reach out to Lily again when we travel. Thanks so much!

Wendi was on time for our meet and greet and was very professional. We had a hiccup during our time away with our refrigerator in the garage "tripping up" our automatic garage door opener. Wendi alerted us right away about the issue and with our coaching was able to resolve the issue with success. She was very punctual with visits and supplying Rover cards. She took Holly on lengthy, enjoyable walks and made sure Holly was well cared for in our absence. Highly recommend Wendi. We'll definitely be requesting her services for Holly again in the near future.

If you only want the best for your pet, Ami is it. Everything from start to finish with her has been nothing short of outstanding. She is reliable, compassionate, and her energy is so calming. My dog Luna had just been diagnosed with kidney disease, and I was overwhelmed. Ami came over to administer subQ fluids, which have been a struggle for me to do on my own because it was so stressful for my dog. Ami taught me things the vet never mentioned, so that the experience was less stressful for Luna, such as warming the bag of fluids, the position to hold my dog in and how to distract her with treats. She even recommended needles that are thinner, and I was amazed my dog didn’t even react when she poked her! She is also working with me on a specialty diet specifically for CKD which is already helping with her nausea and appetite. I am so relieved to have found Ami - she is an invaluable resource, and true animal whisperer. And our kitties approve too, they absolutely love her! Thanks again Ami!!!

My experience with Lex is she has a passion for all animals small and large (horses and cows). She has volunteered at a shelter and sanctuary since middle school and has her own pets at home. I have a german shepherd, cat and parrot that she's been caring for two years. When she is caring for my pets I feel like they are being cared for as if I was home. My pets are always excited when Lex comes in. I refer to her as a true animal whisper and highly recommend.

Laurie was excellent! She was very sensitive to my cat since it was the first time she watched Ava. Laurie was respectful of Ava’s boundaries and made it easier for Ava to warm up to her. I will most definitely hire Laurie again.

About: I have grown up with dogs since I was 10, caring for them all the way till the day they passed. I now own my own dog who is 1 year old and a tortoise who is 18 years old. I love caring for all animals, and seeing how unique they all are. I am a full time teacher during the school year, which gives me more free time during the summer! I love to spend time with my own pets and friends during the summer and it helps having a more flexible schedule to work with. I love to run, bake, and arts and crafts. I would love to have more animals in my life to care for! I make sure the pets have their sense of home and space. While providing an engaging and entreating environment to keep the animals active and stimulated.
