About: With a lifelong passion for pets and extensive experience as a sitter, I possess a unique skill set that encompasses both training puppies and caring for senior pets. Additionally, I specialize in creating thrilling adventures and offering enriching activities that cater to the needs and interests of dogs and cats of all ages. As a college student with a flexible schedule, I prioritize pet care in my daily routine. I dedicate most afternoons to taking my dogs on walks since they aren't morning dogs. Whether it's regular exercise, feeding, or playtime, I ensure their needs are met consistently and with love. When caring for pets in my client's home, I create a comfortable and familiar environment by working within their home. With a keen understanding of pet body language, I establish trust and ensure their well-being. I prioritize lots of affectionate interaction, playtime, and provide a loving, nurturing atmosphere.

“I still can’t believe I found Dan and Monica. I just got my first puppy and some days my husband and I both have to be at the office out of the house all day. For years it’s made me not get a dog but now, while I’d rather it was me, having Dan and Monica to check on, play with, walk and update me makes me feel so much better about him being alone all day sometimes. They are also very patient and kind with a very anxious and concerned dog mom.”

“Arielle and I have known each other 10 plus years and have met each other’s pets. She has loved and cared for her pets and they all have lived great, long lives. I trust her with my dog as well.”
“Best care ever! I was skeptical at first about leaving my dog. This is my first time leaving her outside of my family! To my surprise she warmed up to Toya right away which made me feel even more relaxed leaving her. I will definitely be bringing my pup back”
About: I have been a dog mom for over 16 years. One dog I had for 16 years before she passed of old age and my current dog I’ve had for 10 years. I’ve experienced puppy stage to senior stage. I work from home, so the animals get a lot of my attention and I’m able to always keep them in my sight at all times. I have a large fenced yard to play in and my big old senior dog gets along well with small dogs because he’s scared of them and avoids them! Lol.

“Citlalli was the best petsitter! She went above and beyond caring for my little baby Gregory, who at the time needed to take antibiotics. She is reliable and a great communicator. She made sure Gregory's needs were met and kept me updated whenever she took him anywhere or whenever he did something cute/silly. I deff recommend Citlalli to everyone I know.”

“Laurel was great! She took my late request and gave me great customer service and took wonderful care with Scarlett. She gave me a status report and filled Scarlett’s water bowl without asking. It’s those extra efforts that make all the difference. I look forward to hiring Laurel again.”
About: I’ve been surrounded by dogs, cats, and exotic animals my entire life. My mother used to breed and train dogs for a living. She always encouraged and taught my siblings and I how to take care of our childhood pets. Despite not having the same expertise as her, I think I’ve become uniquely capable of dealing with the wide variety of pet personalities. My day starts and ends with my pets. I have a variety of animals that require different levels of attention. However, everyone gets their attention and is on a set schedule. I always base my care of pets on a combination of their personality and schedule. I think maintaining their schedule is an easy way to provide pets with a sense of comfort. Whether someone needs a little more attention or distance, I am more than happy to oblige.
“She does a great job! I have been taking my guy to her since he was a puppy. He is very well behaved and trained. Val is money well spent!”
About: Hello, my name is Kaila. I am a 31-year-old woman living in Munster, IN. I have been a dog sitter since my early years in college about 13 years ago now. I had a handful of regular clients who I would sit for back then until I moved to Washington State in 2021, then to Bali, Indonesia for a year after that. I arrived back in Munster to stay long term back in August and would love to start establishing new clients again! While in Washington state I established a new clientele and had numerous regular clients just like I did here; I would sit for my regular clients on the regular and I also did part-time work at a doggy daycare working with upwards of 50 dogs at a time. When you need to leave town or your job requires you to work long hours, it can be a lot less stressful knowing that your pets are still comfortable in their home - I have an overwhelming amount of experience with this. Most of the jobs I have always done have been regular overnight stays when my clients want to leave town on vacation and who don't want to create stress by boarding their dogs. I am trustworthy, healthy, happy, I work remotely as a mentor/life coach, and I absolutely love all animals - & they tend to love me back. While in Bali I even had 2 stray dogs that became very attached to me and who slept on my terrace to guard me at night. I miss them very much; I have some pictures that I put in my folder of them. My jobs have ranged from simple and short to complicated and extended; morning walks, drop in visits, weekend overnight stays, and extended overnight stays. I have worked with animals who require medication and who require unique physical care and attention after surgery or injury. I am small, about 115 lbs & 5'2", but I handle large dogs very well. I am always willing to negotiate my prices. I am currently self-employed as a mentor/life coach and truly have an abundance of free time; I take most of my calls in the morning and then do with my days what I please after that. I do not do personal boarding at my own home but when I sit for a dog I try to keep them as active as possible, playing fetch, taking walks, or letting them run in the yard (when accessible). I love to do training exercises with them as well, if you and your pet are open to this! I follow exact instructions left for me when it comes to medications and eating schedules.
About: I’ve taken care of dogs and cats of every kind for 6 years. Neighbors, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed and bathe their pets. In my home country, i helped to adopt the street cats and dogs after caring their treatment. I love pets. Not just love i adore them. I'm currently working part-time as a Post-Doctoral researcher at the university, so I'll have plenty of time to play and taking care of your pups. I am available for boarding on weekends, and weekday(depends on my research schedule) I obey all rules you said to me. Your home and your rules. I can play, feed, make him / her happy with having great time.
“Jas brings a new level of professionalism to pet care. She respects every aspect of this process. She will not disappoint you, and you will definitely want to work with her again and again!”
“I cannot speak highly enough about the exceptional services provided by Claudia. The moment I entrusted my dog and cats to her care, it was clear that they possess a genuine love for all animals. Her dedication to ensuring the well-being and happiness of my pets is truly commendable. Every day, without fail, they arrive with a bright smile and a contagious enthusiasm that instantly lifts my dog's spirits. What sets Claudia apart is her personalized approach to each animal. She took the time to understand my dog and kitties unique personalities, preferences, and quirks. She understands when my dog, Klaus, is in the mood for a leisurely stroll through the park, a playful game of fetch, or a more active exercise session. I have also asked Claudia to care for my cats as well as Klaus, when I’m out of town. One of my cats is very social, but the other is very shy, he never comes out for anyone but me, that is until Claudia began caring for him. When she comes in he prances out of whatever hiding spot he was in and stretches out right in front of her for a quick butt scratch greeting 😂 He truly does not like other house guests, so seeing this connection really warmed my heart and solidified my decision to have Claudia be the one I trust with my fur babies.”
