Teri was so great with Finn. We appreciate her caring ways. We know he was in great hands. And she helped us last minute, which we really appreciate.

Angela did a great job taking care of my cat during a 2 week trip; she went above & beyond in fixing issues with his automatic litter box and was always in contact by text to resolve any issues. Would definitely use her again!

I hired Tara relatively last minute, yet she made time to come over prior to the job to meet my elderly dog and cranky cat. She was completely comfortable with their care, including medication for our dog. Her check ins were timely and through. We will definitely hire her again!

About: I’ve been taking care of pets my whole life and have worked at a big dog kennel that does daycare and grooming for about a year. I am very passionate about my work and the safety and care of pets. I have a very open schedule right now, almost everyday of the week except Fridays. I can stop by to check up on your pets almost any time of the day and will gladly take them on nice walks too! I have walked and taken care of over a 100 fur babies, all with different needs. I am very good with set feeding and walking schedules and will make sure your pet gets the care they deserve.

Lindsay did a great job. She proactively offered to stop over to meet the dog in advance of taking care of her. She was timely and she sent pictures as requested. She also got along well with the dog. It was a great experience and I would definitely work with her in the future.

About: I don’t have much experience but I have lived in a household with 3 dogs at a time. I can manage a schedule and take care of up to three dogs at a time not including my current dog I am free most weeks considering I am currently unemployed, I currently have a dog so another to look after or take care of won’t ruin my schedule I am always around my pets, I don’t often take naps or sleep during the day so I am attentive and ready to take care of the pet’s needs

Patient and has a good vibe all around. Happy we went with her! We feel comfortable having her with our dog. He can be a lot but she doesn’t seem shy or uncomfortable being around him.

Victoria was great with all 3 of my dogs. It tends to be a circus wrangling all 3, but she did an awesome job. Victoria is attentive to detail and great at communicating. We will definitely be booking with her again!

About: I have always been surrounded by animals as I grew up with both cats and dogs in my home. My family has had over four dogs and 2 cats-- and now we currently have three Australian Shepherd dogs. I know how to properly feed and care for dogs since I have done it my whole life. I also enjoy taking them on walks as well and a casual frisbee or tug-o-war time. I have lots of experience with puppies and helping them learn to potty outside. My mom is a dog trainer so I know quite a bit about training dogs too. I care for my three dogs every day. I take them on walks frequently and feed them when asked to. Every day there is some sort of play time/training involved and I always have a fun time with that as three Australian shepherds can be a handful. I have a fenced section of my yard with a pool and then another section of my yard with an underground fence. I have three dogs that are underground fence trained specifically one dog that loves to play with others. One of my other dogs is a senior and the other is a puppy that is still learning how to play. I would prefer to care for pets in the home they originate in/more comfortable in as new areas and dogs can be overwhelming.

About: I have some vet school experience. I have taken care of new born puppies up to senior dogs. I have volunteered in animal shelters for years. I have two animals, 1 cat and 1 dog. Both are rescues and very loving and friendly with other animals. I will slowly interduce your animals to mine if you choice to have me sit them. I walk my dog. Let him outside while watching him on the lead (he likes to lay in the sun). The cat has his litter box and tons of toys (as does the dog). They are both very spoiled.

Ethan took care if my fur baby while we were on vacation and now takes her out for walks. My baby doesn't like anyone but loves Ethan! He makes sure she has enough water and treats when she does a good job. I find him to be not only responsible and reliable but my fur baby loves him too
