“Taking care of someone's pet can be a weighty responsibility. After all, most pet owners view them as family. Rachel is dedicated to the health and well being of all animals. She is honest, trustworthy, and will treat your pet with the same love and kindness that you would expect from a family member.”
“Steve is a responsible, compassionate and attentive dog caregiver. I highly recommend him. He is friendly and respectful to our animals and goes above and beyond to make sure their needs are being met.”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of all kinds, and I’ve owned a few as well. I am more than excited to start working with you and your pet. I currently have a senior dog and a puppy so there is no need to worry if you have either, as I am great with both! I look forward to working with you. Thank you! I am home most of the time with my 3 dogs and my cats, so I have plenty of experience with both. I am very flexible when it comes to scheduling a service because of this! I have a senior German Shepherd, a Golden Retriever who is a little under a year old, and a senior Yorkie. They love to play; especially the retriever, so they can be great company for your pet if you’d like! If you have a dog who prefers to be left alone, I have a rather large home with gates designed for pets and can have my dogs separated from yours! I have a very large yard where they can play as well! It is not fenced in, however, I have dog leads that allow them to freely and safely explore most of the yard.
“Tina is a wonderful pet caregiver and I could not recommend her more! I have known her for some time and she has always been great with my pups. I have both a puppy and a senior dog who need specific attention and care, and Tina is always on top of it. She is great about adhering to specific requests and easy to reach for questions and check ins. I have also recommended her to friends with cats/other pets and heard nothing but positive reviews. You can tell that she really cares for animals and treats them as though they are her own. Overall, she is lovely to work with and I plan to continue using her services!”
“I have used Laura twice now to watch my 2 girls (tuxedo cats) and she has given them excellent care. She is conscientious, personable, friendly, trustworthy and obviously loves animals. I definitely will continue to use her in the future and highly recommend her.”
“Alexxis is amazing! She’s on time, reliable, and wonderful with my pup. She’s been great when I’ve needed a quick schedule change or with any special needs my dog has. She’s the best”
About: I currently have a 1.5 year old Doberman who is a certified service dog. We have worked countless hours with “fetch and more training” and I have learned so much about dog behaviors. I am currently a full time online masters student. I am also a part time assistant college basketball coach. I have the flexibility to adjust to others schedules. My current dog is crate trained. We do not use it often. He uses the bathroom as often as he indicates. He gets plenty of exercise as it is important. Most importantly he gets more than enough love. We also have a cat here and the two get along.
About: I have experience with most animals from farm animals to precious house pets. I am experienced with reactive dogs, behavioral problems, administrating medication, senior pets, following special pet care accommodations and more. I’ve been a nurse for over 10 years and am dependable and caring. Animals are my passion and I am eager to cuddle, play with, and love your pets while you are away. I am currently not working and able to focus on your pets needs during the day/night. Please reach out for specific needs. Willing to accommodate most requests. I have a spayed female cat who is familiar with other pets. Your pet will have full range of our apartment. Pets will be walked frequently and on leash.
“Calista trained my Alaskan Malamute in obedience and therapy dog work. Calista also started socializing my puppy at 10 weeks. Lumi would not be the dog she is today without Calista’s knowledge and guidance.”

About: I was a volunteer at a local animal shelter from ages 14 to 18, my experience includes puppies, dogs, senior dogs, kittens, cats, senior cats, and feral cats. Part of my job was to help rescue animals from hoarding situations and socialize them, with proper space and respect of course. It was a very long, yet rewarding process. Unfortunately, I had to leave because I moved to Potsdam for school. I have a love for animals, my pets mean very much to me and I know yours mean a lot to you too. I have two cats at home and one here. I also assist my boyfriends family in caring for their 2 dogs and 5 cats. Pets are part of the family and deserve the best care even when their owners are away. I am here to provide only the best for your sweet animals. My schedule will be totally open until mid-June, from there I will be out of town a few days a week, but still have a fairly open schedule. My boyfriend and I recently adopted and acclimated a semi-feral cat. She took some time to warm up, but with space and patience from the humans, she is a regular house cat. Working with animals is something I love deeply. It’s so rewarding to see them come out of their shell when given the space to do so. I promise I will treat your fur baby nothing short of amazing, because the care shouldn’t change just because the owners are away ❤️
“Handled with care. Great walk. Will book again”
“Becca has been pet sitting for me for years now. She has cared for my cats and my malamute/shepherd dog more times than I can count! She is diligent, understanding, and treats them as her own. Becca is the biggest animal lover I know. Due to her background of working at an animal shelter, she has extensive knowledge on how to read animals, care for them, communicate with them and connect with them which brings a great deal of comfort to me as a pet owner. I would trust Becca with any pet no matter the age, size, or temperament.”
“Giavanna has a natural motherly instinct for animals. The degree of care that she puts into her own dogs would be enough to make any animal feel lucky to be in her care.”
About: I am generally not afraid of dogs, being able walk, run, and play with a dog always brightens my day. I use to take care of puppies and adult dogs in my spare time after school and I would make sure to feed them, take them out for walks, play with them and pick up after them when needed. I am not working right now so looking after a dog is a good way to pass the time for me, not mention being out of the house and getting a decent amount of exercise. I will take great responsibility in taking care any dog that is under my care, I'll respect the owners rules and do my best to satisfy the customer and their needs
“Alexandria is a great dog sitter. She was very accommodating and display great love and care for our dog.”
About: I’ve grown up around and love animals, and had pets ever since I was a kid. I’ve always taken care of friends, families, and neighbors pets since I was old enough to talk over to the house next door! I have a mini doodle of my own that is my world. I can’t wait to get to know your pet! I am a college student home for the summer working at my part time job. (I work at a golf course as well.) I’m available everyday of the week, except for some weeknight afternoons and weekend mornings - but this changes frequently so my schedule is pretty open. I am extremely careful caring for pets, as I would want and expect for anyone to do for my dog as well. Nothing is ever left out for my pet to get into, doors/windows/etc are always shut, yard is fenced in and my dog is always leashed when I am with him, unless he is in our fenced in yard.
“I was very grateful that Lisa was able to spend some time with my dog last minute!”
“I’ve known Brittney since she was 6 years old. She’s an intelligent, trustworthy, dedicated young woman. Her facility with animal care is natural! Brittney took care of my Bleu with loving kindness that assured me I had made the right choice. I loved receiving photos and brief updates daily! I was able to leave knowing I could relax because I had Brittney looking out for my precious Bleu!”
