About: I have been taking care of pets since I was 9 years old. Ever since my dog Daisy died when I was in High School I have been jumping at the opportunity to care of my friends and families pets. It is always the highlight of my day to visit the different pets and I would almost say I like to see my families pets more then my actual family. I work from home full time and always have time during breaks and right after work to fit in a walk or visit for food. On the weekends I have more time to do multiple visits and walks. I have usually gone to my friends houses but my apartment does allow pets so I could take care of them here too. My apartment easy access to safe walking and a place for the bathroom.

Rachel did a great job checking on my cats while I was away. She showed up when she said she would and my typically shy cat even came out to say hi. I'll be happy to rebook her the next time I travel.

There is absolutely nothing more valuable than the peace of mind of knowing your fur babies are being loved and cared for and that is exactly what you can expect with Taylor. She is a wonderful, gentle soul and loves animals beyond belief. She even took pictures to keep me updated. (Who doesn’t love seeing your babies while you’re away) They just loved her. I can’t say enough good things about Taylor. So if you want great care and a good experience she is your lady.!

Josh was great! We needed someone to take our Rottweiler, Minnie, out in the mornings and evenings while we were traveling - just too much “dog” for my older parents to take care of. Josh was extremely caring to Minnie and made sure to send pictures & status updates after every visit. He fed her treats took her out for walks, and made sure she got some attention. It’s hard to find someone you can trust that can handle such a big dog. We were so glad that it worked out - we will book him again!

About: I’m new to this site, but I have had the pleasure of owning several dogs. I have dealt with multiple dog personalities, so i'd say I have the knowledge to address many types of dogs. I am a very active person, so I would be glad to give your dog a workout. I look forward to seeing my furry counterparts! I am available to dog walk/ take care of pets during the week day, after 9 pm. On Friday and Saturday, I am able to pet sit. On Sunday, I am able to offer any service aside from pet sitting or pet boarding. I am able to feed, provide water, bathe, and walk pets. I am also able to brush pets, and play with them. If the pets come to my house, and the weather is not cooperating, I have space for them to safely and comfortably reside in.

About: I’ve had a dogs in my life, since I was a child, and was introduced to cats as I ventured into the collegiate life. As an adult I have cared for dogs primarily, but recently had the opportunity to take care of the sweetest cats! I am fairly patient with pets and like to give them as much space as they like to try to not mess up the routines, but if they are balls of energy and cuddle bugs, I am more than happy to comply! I believe that walks and healthy roaming space is good for a dog’s, development and energy, and respecting a cat to make the first move to ensure respect and comfort to their environment. I am a work from home, travel, business owner, and therefore have a lot of flexibility on my hands to be able to work anywhere! I like doing research on the neighborhoods that I’m going into if it’s a new area, and like to understand what you have available, either a dog park, or a fenced backyard, to really understand how to best care for your dog. My dog is a big ball of energy so I have learned a lot of skills to be able to make sure that they stay in their assigned spaces, I do like to keep them with me on my lap as I work, or nearby letting them enjoy a nap.

About: I have been taking care of pets since I was 10. I grew up with multiple cats to care for and have been a dog owner for 11 years. I have experience with puppies/kittens, as well as seniors who may have medical needs. I am also capable of handling high energy pets and households with multiples. I do work full-time (M-F) but have a flexible schedule. I have time in the mornings, and after 5 during the weekdays to care for your pets, and times during the day. Most weekends are very open. I know all pet parents have different rules/expectations, so I am open and happy to follow your lead on how you would need things done. I have a senior dog who is used to no crate, taking full advantage of the couches and beds :) and enjoys moderate length walks. I have had him since he was a puppy, so I am able to provide long walks, exercise time outside and crating if need be.

Libby is such a sweet, kind soul that cares deeply for animals. She takes her time to learn and understand pets behaviors to make sure she's providing the best environment she can. She would lavish any animal in her care with attention while keeping their safety top priority. Libby is trustworthy and respectful. She is my 'go-to' person for any pet care needs.

Samantha watched my dogs for many years before moving to Baraboo. She loved taking them for walks and getting to know their personalities! I would definitely recommend her to watch other pups at her house which has a huge yard and two lovable fur friends to play with!
