“Continued booking BJ - as mentioned earlier she’s amazing! Was such a great help, flexible to make sure the weather wouldn’t be a challenge (whether rain or heat), so kind! My whole family loves her!”
About: I have been babysitting dogs and cats for almost 5 years now. I will take care of your fur babies and make them feel loved while you’re gone! I have two dogs, a corgi and boxer. I can do weekends Monday-Friday I work 8-5 but can let them out before I go to work and when I get home. Friday-Sunday I available pretty whenever needed if you need me to stay over night or just pop in and out to check in on them and let them out. I prefer if the pets are trained or there is a fenced in yard so I don’t have to worry about them running away. I will also be okay with if they need to be put on a Leash when going outside.
“Yamila took care of my Flaco for a long time. She always provided him with a lot of love and played with him. She has a great affection for animals and knows very well how to handle care and walks. She is amazing! Flaco misses her.”
About: I’ve cared for furbabies of mine and others’ since I was a little girl. My family had a small farm and we have always cared for animals. Snakes and chickens too! Animals are gifts to this world, and I’m honored with the opportunity to spend more time with them. I’m currently self-employed, so have plenty of time to work around your schedule and your furbabies needs. I live a very active lifestyle and happy to being your pet with me to the woods or on a walk to the park. If you have special requests I’m happy to help! I offer daycare at my home and sleepovers for pets in my/your home. I live in a quiet neighborhood with a big back yard, near the river and lots of room to play!
About: From teeny to massive, I can love, cuddle, walk, and care for dogs & cats of all breeds and temperaments. Blind, deaf, senior, tripaws, puppies, car-phobic, escape artists, I've watched 'em all! From dogs (pets) that were trained before they were even born, to the dogs you're terrified to let anyone watch, I'm your girl. Not only have I cared for them all, I've also owned them all. I know how uneasy letting someone watch your furry family member is, so I want to reassure you they'll not only get the care you asked for, but they'll get it with lots of love, scratches, and pets! I work locally and with very flexible hours, partially work from home. My schedule would be different on a weekly basis, but I have plenty of time to care for your pet, and am free every evening and night. You can absolutely trust me in your home and with your pets. Just like I'd treat your pets like they were my own, I'd do the same with your home. I can send photos (pupdates!) as desired and have endless local references.

About: I have had extensive pet care experience over the years. I have cared for both dogs and cats, as well as smaller animals like rabbits and hamsters. I have experience with both indoor and outdoor pets, and I am comfortable with administering medication if needed. In my previous job, I was responsible for feeding, walking, and playing with the pets under my care. I also kept an eye on their health and reported any concerns to their owners. I am passionate about providing the best possible care for animals and I enjoy spending time with them. Well, pet care is an essential part of our daily and weekly routines, especially for pet owners like me. When it comes to taking care of our pets, we need to ensure that they are healthy, happy, and safe. This means providing them with proper nutrition, exercise, grooming, and veterinary care. As a pet owner, my daily pet care routine involves feeding my pet, giving them fresh water, and taking them for a walk or providing them with playtime. Additionally, I take some time to clean up after my pet, such as cleaning their litter box or picking up after them outside. Weekly pet care routines can involve much more, like giving my pet a bath, cleaning their bedding or cage, and checking for any potential health issues or concerns. I also make it a point to play with my pet and teach them new tricks during the week to keep them mentally stimulated and happy. Overall, pet care is a responsibility that pet owners like myself need to take seriously. By incorporating daily and weekly routines, we can ensure that our pets continue to thrive and live healthy, happy lives. Well, I think my approach to caring for my pets at home is pretty comprehensive. Firstly, I make sure to provide them with a clean environment, which means their area and kennel is cleaned as well as, beddings are changed regularly. I also make sure they have access to plenty of fresh water and nutritious food. In terms of exercise and playtime, I schedule a set amount of time each day for interactive play and exercise, in addition to walks outdoors. This keeps them happy, healthy and stimulated both physically and mentally. I also prioritize their medical needs by ensuring they receive regular checkups and vaccinations as needed. This proactive approach helps to prevent health problems down the line. Overall, I believe that providing a safe and nurturing environment, plenty of exercise and playtime, and proactive medical care are all key to caring for pets in a responsible and effective way.
“Wonderful, cheerful, amazing, the best ever. Hope to never lose her 💯”
“Bethany has 4 pets of her own which she takes great care of. She also has shown great affection and love to my pet dog when she had her in her company. I would not hesitate in recommending her for any type of Animal sitter role, whether short or long term.”
About: I have had a wide variety of pets my entire life. My Dad always had a Beagle or two and we always had at least one cat. I currently am Blessed with Roo, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is my partner in running, biking, hiking, camping, and even travels by plane and train with me 😀 I am available most days and nights, some drop in care and sometimes notice is needed. I have a big fenced in yard and Roo would be a perfect companion for a gentle, non-aggressive playmate. Any pets I keep will become part of our family with indoor/outdoor privileges including daytime and/or evening walks throughout the neighborhood with a stop at Gramma's house for a drink of water and a treat.
“Richard is best. Reliable and treats sham like gold. Highly recommend”
About: I have raised 2 puppies and I'm the mom of a frenchie. We love going for walks and being outside. My dog plays well with others and would welcome a new friend for the day. I'm just working part time right now so I would have plenty of time for a drop-in visit and a walk. I'm available Mon 10am-12:30pm Tues 8am-12:30pm Wed 8am-2pm Thurs 8am-12:30pm Fri 8am-2pm. Mon-fri I would still be available for drop-in or walks after 5pm but I would have my kids with me. Please reach out even if your requested time doesn't match my availability. I still may be able to accommodate you. I do not have a fenced yard which is why I'm not offering for pets to stay in my home. My dog is trained to stay nearby so we haven't needed to get a fence yet. I am able to accommodate walking dogs of all sizes and all activity levels. I can work with dogs who pull or who are easily distracted. I'm a mother to 4 children and a dog so I definitely have patience!
About: I used to take care of my gym owner’s dog for a while every time they went on vacation — letting the dog out, feeding, staying the night with the animals, etc. I also haven’t known a time when my family hasn’t owned a dog. I currently work full time as a manager at a retail store, but I am off every Tuesday and every other weekend. I am willing to use my days off to take care of your beloved pet! I am comfortable letting your dog out if it needs to use the bathroom, taking it on walks, feeding it, kenneling, and much more. I’m pretty comfortable with most things.
About: Being in the military not only have I had special training with bigger dogs but also having close relatives with ESA (emotional support animals) I have always been very close and caring of animals as they are the most pure hearted things on the planet Currently all days are available and am willing to watch on weekends as well animals are the key to the soul and I’m excited they are apart of our lives I live not to far from a dog park and have many toys and space for animals I have a caring girlfriend as well who is very supportive of animals
“Leah has a dog lover's soul for sure!! We went on a mission trip to Haiti this year and she loved on every dog we came across. She wanted to rescue them all and bring them home! I know she loves her own rescue dog like she is her child. Caring for her pup through heartworm treatment shows she is certainly responsible with an animal. I would trust my 3 dogs in her care.”
“Colin was super helpful and even came out to walk my two power pullers in slippery weather! The boys looked so happy in the photo he sent me! Thanks a million Colin! Would definitely book him again!!”
