“Amanda did an amazing job walking our dog who isn’t always an easy walk. She is friendly and followed all of our instructions. We appreciated the many pics and the updates she provided during the walk. Would definitely book again. Thank you for caring for our dog!”
About: For 24 years, I've been a devoted pet lover. At 20, I welcomed my best friend, Cova, a German Australian Shepherd, whom I raised from a puppy and trained myself. We're inseparable. I thrive outdoors, especially on walks. My experience and deep bond with animals ensure top-notch care for your furry friend. They'll be treated like family, receiving love, respect, and attention. With me, your pet is in trusted, caring hands. With a flexible and open schedule, I am readily available to cater to the specific needs of your pet. Whether it's regular walks, playtime, or last-minute adjustments, you can count on me to be there when you need reliable and dedicated pet care. My adaptable availability ensures that your furry friend receives the attention and care they deserve, tailored to your convenience. In my home, pets find a welcoming haven designed for their comfort and happiness. I've created designated play areas, cozy resting spots, and established a routine that includes regular exercise tailored to their individual needs. Ensuring they receive balanced nutrition and adhering to their established feeding schedule is a top priority. Above all, I strive to create an environment where they feel secure, loved, and stimulated. When entrusted with a client's pet in their own home, I understand the importance of maintaining a familiar and comfortable environment. I closely adhere to their established routine, from feeding schedules to playtime preferences. I make sure they feel secure and at ease, providing plenty of mental and physical stimulation through play and exercise. Clear communication with the client is key, as it allows me to address any specific instructions or concerns they may have. This ensures that their pet's needs are not only met, but exceeded, in a way that aligns with their unique preferences. Ultimately, whether in my home or a client's, my aim is to provide a positive and enriching experience for pets, always tailoring my approach to suit their individual needs and preferences.
“Jesika was such a huge help, always showed up with a smile, my puppy was overjoyed to see her and she was very communicative through our time. Would definitely hire her again.”
About: I'm here to make you and your pets lives a little easier, less stressful and hopefully at lot more fun! I've had pets (and other farm animals) my whole life. Raised out in the country of the Central Valley of California, I've been taking care of animals as long as I can remember. Now as an adult, I have pets of my own. I have 5+ years of experience taking care of cats and dogs, both my own and for others. I have owned both cats and dogs of varying ages (and sizes). I currently have a 4-year-old Australian Cattle Dog and Golden Retriever puppy of my own, so I have additional experience with care of dogs under 1 year old and multi-pet households. I have provided in-house, overnight care for pets for as long as 2 weeks time and have cared for households with up to 5 pets thus far. Additionally, I am a working professional who frequently uses dog-walking and pet-sitting services myself, so I understand having concerns with someone being in your personal space and caring for the pets we love so much. While most days I work from home, when I go into the office I use Rover to have folks swing my and walk my pups! Rest assured, I'm just hoping to give others out there the same peace of mind I get from knowing my dogs are safe and comfortable when I have to be out of the house for long periods of time, and I am always around to answer any and all questions or concerns you may have throughout the process. Looking forward to meeting all your furry little friends! I'm a work from home professional with a very flexible schedule. Other than Mondays, when I am in office, I am available throughout the day and evening to check in, provide play time, go on walks, take potty breaks, feed and just hang out with your pets in usually hour long incements. For overnight and full-time pet sitting stays, I will work with you to understand your pets needs and schedule, and we can determine if I'd be a good fit to keep your fur-baby company. On weekends I am available to provide care anytime through the day. On weekdays I provide drop in services, such as walks and potty breaks from 9-6pm unless otherwise discussed. I am available for overnight and full-time pet sitting stays during the week, but would still need to be available for work throughout the day, and therefore cannot provide 24/7 attention (ex. pets under 4 months, or pets with medical needs that would require constant attention). As mentioned, I am very flexible with my time, so if you are unsure if I could work with your schedule, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm happy to discuss and answer any quesitons. I unfortunately am not offering pet sitting services at my own home while we are still learning about the new respiratory virus that has been going around the west coast. While I would usually be happy to bring along one or both of my dogs to keep other friendly dogs company, they will also be staying home until we know more about the virus. Additionally, I will be taking increased precautions with hygiene, hand washing, and cross contamination during this time. I am happy to visit or stay at your house in order to care for your pet. My own dogs are crate trained, so I can board and unboard your pet as requested. I am very responsively via phone and email, so I will work with you to establish update times and frequency for your pet so that your are always comfortable and in the know!
About: I really love dogs and have fun getting out with them exercising and playing. They’ll become part of my pack. We’ll play lots of catch, frisbee, and explore the neighborhoods. I am a stay at home mom, music enthusiasts, streaming tech entrepreneur and animal lover, especially dogs! I have a three year old McNab old doggie who loves to play with other dogs and cant’t wait for your furry friend to join our pack. We do require a meet and greet before our first sit, just to make sure they get along. I treat all animals with respect and love. Sometimes you’ll catch me talking to our furry friends in a funny mom dog voice but doesn’t everyone?
“Laura is so sweet with our anxious dog and is always on time and does a great job communicating!”
“Kendra is amazing! I’ve been having her walk my babies a lot!”
“Michael did a great job with Walker, my 80lb husky Pyrenees mix, on their first walk today. He arrived on time, listened to a few tips on Walker’s personality and off they went. Michael inspired confidence with his own personable manner. I felt comfortable that Walker was “in good hands”. Appreciated the nice photo he sent while they were out. I have a variety of “dog people” helping me out while I recuperate from an injury, would definitely hire Michael again and recommend him to others as well. Thank you Michael!”
“Melanie is a trustworthy, compassionate, patient and dedicated dog care provider. She’s extremely knowledgeable and uses positive-reinforcement and redirection when walking and working with dogs. One of my dogs experiences a lot of anxiety and she has helped him rediscover how much he enjoys walks and car rides with her creative and encouraging techniques. I really appreciate her huge heart and love that she treats my dogs as though they are one of her own family members. Thank you, Melanie!”
“She is the sweetest and my dogs love her!”
“Oli has been such a help for both overnight house sitting and quick workday walks. She is respectful of all my requests, very communicative and helpful. Best of all, she is so great with my large, energetic German shepherd dog. I’m so grateful for her help and would highly recommend her services.”
About: I have had a dog since I have been born I have owned a total of 5 different dogs and overall it is a nice hobby to take them out on walks, feed them, etc. I am working part time at the moment to help with college expenses but will do my absolute best to fit your pets into my schedule ! I hope to work with you soon :) I have a little baby yorkee to help your pet feel welcomed, safe, and trusted in the environment he will be around, and overall I love taking care of dogs
“If Barbara were not a person she would be a dog, or a cat, or a donkey, or a goat, or a duck, or a chicken. Just ask any of those animals that she lives with and they would agree. Probably the highest pet care praise that Barbara can receive comes from the actions of her veterinarian's family. Even though he has his own vet practice and can board his dogs there (probably for free), when they go on vacation they pay Barbara to care for their dogs at her home. Barbara lives in a rural setting with no close neighbors to be bothered by barking, or braying, crowing or clucking. Her property is fenced and cross fenced and has many shelters and feeding stations for livestock animals as well as a variety of large indoor and outdoor spaces for smaller critters. If you only want someone to visit your pet pal and tend to their needs and take them for a walk, Barbara enjoys that too. One of her favorite things to do is to walk through neighborhoods that are new to her so she can enjoy the view of other people's gardens. If I were someone's pet I would be glad if Barbara came to visit me, and even more glad if I got to visit her.”
“My pup, Indy, loves Danielle. She is so excited to see her and reluctant to end her walks. I’m so grateful to have found Danielle.”
“I've known Terri for several years and know her to be an honest, responsible person and caring dog lover. I think she will make a great dog sitter and I highly recommend her. She has taken care of my dog and has done a great job.”
“Sadie B. is a fantastic dog sitter. We've known and used her for years. She's responsible, lovable, and logical. She is great with small dogs, understanding that they need to be protected and also great with large dogs given their need to exercise. She understands how pet owners feel about their dogs and animals, as she also is a pet owner. She has had puppies and also elderly impaired dogs in her life. She's been the owner/lover of small, medium and large breeds. We love that she understands that our small dogs need to be held and slept with and that our big dog needs to be crated and worked. You will love her.”
“Lauryn has grown up around dogs her whole life and has a genuine love for them! She has a calm and loving demeanor and just enjoys being around them whether it be walks, cuddles, or just hanging out watching tv. She will treat your dog as if it it were her own and will take the best care to ensure they are happy, safe and well cared for. She will become your dogs best friend for sure!”
“My boys just love Natalia. She does so much extra and it’s just so helpful!!!”
About: I grew up with dogs and budgies”, prep-pandemic I worked at a county humane society as an animal tech, I was a naturalist at a zoo during graduate school, I walk dogs for a few neighbors, and I am a volunteer at a local humane society with 150 hours of volunteer time caring for dogs/cats/and the occasional other small mammal. I am also certified to rescue stranded dolphins and turtles. I have a small business which I mostly run from home. I also help out a few neighbors with dog walking/bathroom breaks when the owners can’t. Safety is my most important consideration. Your pet becomes a family member to me and I’m sad to say goodbye. I have a wide variety of toys, treats, walking gear, and comfy places to lounge. I will keep your pet stimulated, comfortable, and clean.
