“I can't recommend Mercedes highly enough! We had a meet and greet on the beach awhile back, and both she and her 2 big dogs were so chill and relaxed I instantly felt at ease knowing my old man would be happy and safe at their home. He just had a short one night stay this time, but I am 100% comfortable with Fred in her care - and I know he's looking forward to it as well (although he's been sleeping since I picked him up). 5 stars, all day!”
“Crystal was the best! It was my first time using Rover and I was in a pinch for boarding options over the July 4th holiday weekend. Not only did I get a much better rate than any kennel/dogsitter, but my dog Dabo was personally taken care of for the whole weekend. I was updated daily on his activities and allowed to visit whenever I liked and Crystal's dog was a perfect playmate. Highly recommended!”
“Kathleen was a wonderful sitter for our senior bichon/poodle. She asked lots of questions about his personality and preferences so he could have the best visit possible in her home. He seemed very comfortable with her and we will definitely contact her again when we need a dog sitter.”
“My pup had the best time, both Stephanie and her daughter gave Mickey extra love and play time. She never went more than a few hours without giving an update too. Overall very happy, Mickey would love to go back if we are ever in the area again.”
“Ciara is an amazing caretaker for your pup. I recommend her out of everyone. My dog loves her. He always comes back so happy whenever ciara takes him out. She is very cautious and always makes sure to send me photos and updates. She cares for your dogs as if they’re her own dogs. You won’t regret choosing her I promise you that I know I didn’t.”
“Lori was terrific. She stayed in touch and gave Prim great attention. She has just had surgery and Lori was very attentive. Prim had a great time. Will definitely use her often.”
“Myleigh is amazing. I’ve had her watch my puppy twice now. My puppy really loves being there with her. She gets super excited to see her when I’m dropping her off. Myleigh is very accommodating and always gives me updates on how my pup is doing. Definitely will be booking her again.”
“Steve has boarded our adult female Samoyed a few times. Our girl adjusts very quickly and easily, thoroughly enjoys the time with Steve, his family and their dogs. She gets plenty of attention and outside time and exercise. We’d use Steve again without question.”

“Lucy,Will and Larry took such good care of my senior dog Stanley. I was traveling out of town and they completely put my mind at easy that Stanley was well taken care of. They sent me photo updates and Larry and Stanley were best of friends. I would 100% recommend them for doggy daycare and boarding.”
“After the destination is picked, the air tickets bought, it's automatic to make a reservation with Donna for our dog, Max. Happy to have found her.”
“I have used Erika for many years. She took great care of my elderly pup and now takes care of my new pup. She treats them like her own. My dog is so excited when I tell her we are going to Erika’s. Would recommend Erika 110%!!!”
“Hyesun & Bob were so great! Rosie loved her stay and I enjoyed seeing the cute pictures of her. I appreciated their flexibility too. Thank you!”

“Tara is quick and responsive to her booking requests. She took excellent care of my boys, and I am so incredibly thankful. For context I have a senior chihuahua with special needs and a younger goldendoodle. She took such great care of my senior dog and was excellent taking care of my doodle (he is quite the handful to say the least). She is highly knowledgeable and incredibly caring. I highly recommend her. Thank you again Tara!”
“Patrick was great with my senior dachshund! She was super happy and seemed to love him. He was very accommodating and took her everywhere with him so she wouldn’t have to be alone. He sent pictures and updated me the whole time. I’ll definitely be using him again when I go out of town!”
“We have an older dog, and we’ve always been able to call on family and friends to care for Sully while we are away. But we found ourselves in a pinch, and Gienna (thankfully!!) had an opening in her schedule to care for Sully for a long weekend. She and her dog Maggie were so welcoming, and made Sully feel right at home. He was so comfy and was soon prancing in Gienna’s yard. We received many pictures of Sully as he was settling into their home. Gienna communicated well and administered Sully’s meds as we needed. What a find for us and Sully! Gienna enjoyed caring for our little man and we are so happy that he had a great experience.”
“Incredible! They were so sweet, kind, and caring for our little girl. We needed a sitter last minute for an extended period and they were very responsive. They sent multiple photos daily and kept her entertained with all kinds of fun! With the lake nearby, there's plenty of wildlife and if your dog is likes a swim. Mary and her husband are great people and we will definitely be back!”
“Abby is a wonderful and reliable caretaker for dogs of all types! She has a lifetime of experience from managing quirky solo animals to a full pack, and her remote work schedule allows for lots of quality time. Any dog lucky enough to be in her care will have the time of their life with her fenced in yard, all the treats and toys they could dream of, and plenty of excursions. Treat your fur child to a vacation of their own while you travel!”
“Once again we left our precious fur baby with Jennifer and family. As always our girl is happy and content as well as spoiled by the whole family. We never worry about our Lily no matter how long we are gone or how far away. That is peace of mind you can’t find easily. Never doubt your pet is happy and safe when staying with Jennifer.”
