I wanted my cat to be monitored while I was at work because she was congested. Katie was able to accommodate my request, which was a relief. She took great care of my cat and knowing she was with her, eased my mind so I could concentrate on my work.

Dani was great! She was very respectful of our time and home. She updated me along the way while I was gone and even got my more timid cat to play while she was there! She was easily communicated with and responsive. Will definitely ask her again to watch my cats when I’m on vacation.

Eric was very thorough and caring with drop-in visits for our cat. He followed all instructions closely, even going above and beyond to water our plants one day, and he was respectful of our home. We would highly recommend Eric for drop-in visits.

Gianina is amazing! Every time she watches my cat he is excited to see her and comes out to greet her. He never comes out for anyone but us, and now her. We are so relaxed now when we travel knowing he has her.

Demi was very responsive during pre-visit communications and made me feel confident going into my trip. She was on-time & followed instructions and gave good reports each drop-in to keep me informed. This was my first booking with Demi and she nailed it- will definitely book her again as needed!

Donna, our pet sitter, took exceptional care of my beloved cat, Bill Gate. From the moment she arrived, it was clear that Donna has a genuine love for animals and a professional approach to her work. She provided Bill with plenty of attention, playtime, and even sent regular updates with photos, which gave me great peace of mind. I returned home to a happy and well-cared-for cat, and I am incredibly grateful to Donna for her outstanding service. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a reliable and loving pet sitter!

About: With a lifetime dedicated to the care and companionship of animals, I bring a wide-ranging expertise that spans the entire spectrum of pet needs. Extensive Range of Expertise: I have a lifetime of experience with animals, from the tiniest kittens to the most majestic Great Danes. I understand the unique needs and care required for each of these animals, making me a versatile choice for a pet sitter. High-Energy Dogs: I've had the pleasure of caring for dogs with high energy levels, such as Huskies. I know how to keep them mentally stimulated and physically active, ensuring they remain happy and healthy. Understanding Cat Personalities: Cats come in all personality types, and I've had the privilege of getting to know them on a personal level. This experience helps me tailor my care to each feline's unique needs and preferences. Kittens and Puppies: Raising kittens and puppies requires a special touch, and I have the skills and patience needed to provide the best care for these young, energetic animals. I can help nurture and train them during these crucial developmental stages. Medicating Chronically Ill Dogs: I have personal experience in medicating chronically ill dogs, which means I can provide the care and attention necessary for their well-being. This includes administering medications on schedule and monitoring their health closely. Senior Care: I'm also well-versed in senior pet care. Older animals have their own unique needs, and I'm sensitive to their requirements, ensuring they are comfortable and content. In choosing me as your pet sitter, you're not just getting someone who loves animals but also someone with a wealth of knowledge and a diverse set of skills to provide the best possible care for your pets. I look forward to meeting you and your beloved animals! Pet care fits seamlessly into my daily and weekly routine due to the flexibility I enjoy as a full-time online student. I understand the importance of maintaining a structured schedule, which enables me to balance my academic responsibilities with my commitment to pet care. Given my online coursework, I have the flexibility to adapt my schedule to accommodate the specific needs of the pets I care for. I can readily allocate dedicated time for feeding, exercise, and companionship. This adaptability ensures that the pets receive the attention and care they deserve. My availability extends throughout the week, allowing me to offer pet care services on various days and at different times. This flexibility not only benefits the animals under my care but also aligns perfectly with my need for supplemental income. In essence, pet care complements my student lifestyle, offering a harmonious blend of my academic pursuits and my passion for animals. It's a win-win situation that I'm fully committed to, and I'm eager to provide dependable and loving care to your pets when needed. When caring for pets in my client's home, I approach the task with a keen eye for detail and a commitment to ensuring the well-being and comfort of the animals. The care I provide is tailored to the specific needs of each pet and the service I am offering: For pets that require more active engagement, I am diligent in addressing their exercise and playtime needs, maintaining a watchful eye to ensure their activities are enjoyable and safe. When it comes to the dietary needs of pets, I adhere strictly to the feeding schedules and portions set by the owner, and I am meticulous about providing fresh food and water. For pets that require medication, I am disciplined about following the prescribed regimen, monitoring their health closely to ensure their continued improvement. I maintain a clean and organized space, not only for the comfort of the pets but also to uphold hygiene standards. I communicate with the owners regularly, sharing updates on the well-being of their pets and addressing any concerns or questions they may have. By focusing on these aspects of care, I aim to create a nurturing and secure atmosphere in which pets feel at ease and content during their owner's absence, regardless of the specific services I'm providing.

I have a 7 yr old Akita, and this was our first time leaving her home alone. She’s not the friendliest at first, but Maisie handled her professionally and with care. She communicated with me the whole time and made sure I was comfortable with her services. Right from the start, she was quick with her responses and seemed knowledgeable and trained to handle bigger dogs and knew I wanted to book her. Maisie went out of her way and even had a friend help out to make sure alaska was well taken care for. Maisie is the absolute best!

About: My wife and I are very active in various community efforts and support our local Animal Shelter in a number of ways, including starting Santacon Hayward 12 years ago to raise funds! We have helped sponsor over 400 adoptions at the shelter, and have rescued our two boys from there, too! Both of our dogs have special needs (one is blind and the other is deaf) so I have experience with special needs and older dogs. Having raised several dogs over the years, I can assist with routines and stay with established habits they are used to. I'm retired from my career and have general availability during the week and weekends, any hours of the day. I appreciate a few days notice to ensure my availability and can house/pet sit for up to 15 days or longer by arrangement. I am highly trustworthy with your pets and your home. I will leave your property and your pets in great condition during my stay at your place. During drop-in visits, I will spend 20-30 minutes with your pet. For dog walking, I will provide a 30 minute walk, depending on weather and neighborhood conditions. You can request 60 minutes for this service. I prefer attending to just one dog to give them maximum attention, but will consider two-dog households in certain circumstances and after a meet and greet only.

About: Hi my name is Eleni. Your pets will be in great hands with me!! They will receive ultimate love and affection while in my care! I don’t mind doing anything actually I love to do everything I love keeping myself busy. If I keep myself busy it keeps the day going for me. Unlike other sitters, my home will be your pets home while they are with me. I’m a college student trying to earn some extra cash. But I’m trying to major in to be a veterinarian. I have a serious passion and love for dogs. I would love to be your sitter. Thank you also all I ask is that you would communicate, communication is the key and I will always answer. I am not really a busy person so I will have plenty of time to be with your fur baby haha ❤️. I love pets! I have a gated community so your fur baby will be safe with me. I will always keep them on a leash unless they are in the house then they can run wild and free jk lol.

Wendy swung by our house a few times to feed our cat and to give him some love when we were out on short trips. She always sent us a text message and maybe a picture or two to show us how our little guy is doing. A few years later, we adopted two little dogs, which made going on trips a bit harder. One year my husband and I had to fly out unexpectedly for a funeral and we needed a petsitter. We dropped off our two dogs at Wendy's place for four days. I have been known to be very anxious and a worrier whenever we leave our pets behind, but the pictures and updates she sent me on when they received their feeding and how well-behaved they were really put me at ease. My senior maltese dog was abused by his past owner and is very distrusting of people. I was surprised when Wendy sent me a picture of her petting him and he looked fine. When we finally arrived to pick them up, they were so happy to see us but they also looked like they were well taken care of. Her help really enabled us to focus on family and the funeral and not worry about how our boys were doing. I definitely recommend her for your petsitting needs.
