My Lola had a blast staying with Lisa! She sent many pictures and updates during her stay and was very responsive. Plenty of toys and comfy places for a pup to enjoy in the household and a safe fenced in yard. Would definitely recommend!

Alice was amazing! I was so nervous about leaving my dog with someone I did not know but she put me at ease as soon as we met. It was readily apparent that she has a lot of experience with dogs, and the safety and well-being of those in her care is her primary concern. She sent daily photos, videos and updates while I was gone. And it was obvious that Lucky enjoyed himself while he was there. Alice is a kind-hearted and responsible caregiver. She is at the top of my call list for future needs. Thanks Alice!

Justin was great to work with! He asked great questions at drop off to get to know our dog and care for him well. Would recommend him and use him again in the future! He was also transparent about other dogs he was boarding the same time ours was there.

Jenevieve was everything you could want in a pet sitter! We left our dog and cat with her while we were gone for a week. They both thrived and got loved on by the whole family. She followed feeding instructions to a “T” and gave them so much loving and attention. We will definitely book with her again! Can’t recommend enough.

Absolutely the best sitter I could have found. Spoiled my dog to the point he expects more from home now :). He has separation anxiety and she accommodated his every need and did everything to make him feel just like he is at home, she even let him sleep in her bed with her. I cannot recommend Casandra enough.

I used Sarah because I wanted to take my dog with me on a road trip… she was super flexible on drop off and pick up. My dog loved playing with her pups in her fantastic back yard. Next time I am in DM I will definitely try to use her again!

Maricela was awesome with easing in Sami into her home, giving her space to get used to the new environment. She sent pictures daily and was always incredibly responsive in both the inquiry and once booked. She accommodated our requests and was incredibly friendly. Definitely recommend Maricela if you are looking for someone that will treat your pet as their own!

This was the second time we left Stormy with Evan. The first time was for two weeks and it worked out so well for us and Stormy and I did not hesitate to leave him again with Evan for a weekend. I appreciate the photos and updates Evan sent while we were gone, and Stormy seems to enjoy staying with him.

5 out of 5! Scott was communicative, flexible, gracious, and kind. I don't think Maggie wanted to leave when I came to pick her up! It was clear that Scott and his wife enjoy sitting for dogs. They have a perfect backyard for it too.

Liam took excellent care of our energetic mini-labradoodle! They are a dog friendly home and truly welcomed her right in! She got a lot of snuggles, attention, and walks. I was SO grateful having Liam watching her over a weekend while I was out of town. He kept me updated on her activities and sent darling pictures of her, I had such peace of mind knowing she was being so well cared for. I highly recommend Liam and will certainly be booking him again! Thank you, Liam! 🐶
