Oscar always has a blast with Casandra. It’s wonderful knowing that when we go on vacation Oscar gets to have a vacation as well. He is always very excited to meet new friends and get pampered.

Jessica took care of my dog Iommi for a long weekend while I traveled out of state for my brother's wedding. It was my first time leaving Iommi and Jessica was the perfect person to leave her with. I was admittedly anxious about leaving Iommi for the first time, but as soon as I arrived the morning of drop-off Jessica made me feel 100% at ease. She took care of Iommi like she was her own and I know Iommi had a great time staying with Jessica and her family and playing with her dog Rip. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for care for their pet! I will definitely be booking with Jessica again!

They have watched my dog multiple times now! I won’t go to anyone else but Erin and Chris to watch my fur baby! They take care of him like he is their own dog. My dog loves to be at their house! I get daily picture updates and it always looks like he is having the time of his life. He truly gets treated like a king at their house❤️. If you are deciding who to book with, book with Erin and Chris. I promise you won’t be disappointed🤗

Alice was fabulous!! She sent photos and a video and updates as to how our pupster was doing. We felt confident that she was in very good hands. Our dog is usually anxious around other dogs but she warmed up quickly to Alice’s little frenchie and they even had some play time. We will use her again if we need this service in the future.

Kristy was so awesome to our Nyla! Nyla loved playing with Kristy’s dogs and I can tell she really enjoyed her time! She sent us plenty of pictures and videos, which was needed as we missed our pup a bunch. It was our first time away from her since we got her, and we were comforted knowing she was well cared for.

Cory took great care of our dog while we were away. Our dog can have periods of anxiety and does not do well with other animals, he was able to handle her behaviors without a problem. He sent us regular updates and kept her active all weekend. She was happy and worn out when we picked her up. We would definitely recommend and plan to use him again for future trips!

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!

About: I've grown up around dogs and have a passion for animals. I have succeeded in training my current puppy in multiple commands and managed to have him fully housebroken by the age of 4 months. I typically work from home Mondays and Fridays and can check on pets at regular intervals. Occasionally I may run 1-2 hour long errands while the dogs play in the back yard. My current dog is a loving 4 month old Great Pyrenees/GSD mix who has a wonderful temperament and is a perfect early socialization experience for nervous dogs. There is a decent-sized fenced in yard for dogs to run around in complete with a plastic kiddie pool to help cool off on Sunny days. While inside the dogs will be regulated to the kitchen and living areas.

I had planned to have my parents watch my dog back to back weeks, but he had a lot of accidents at their house and my mom was stressed so I opted to find a sitter. I was so lucky to find Ali! Eugene seems to have thrived at her home - ended up liking her dog’s food more than the pricey food I’d been giving him (happy to switch!) She sent lots of photos and her older dog seemed to be a great partner in crime for my old man. So happy to have found this sitter - will use again!

I am so grateful to God to have Kayla watched my pets. She took good care of them and loved them like they were her own. She was patient with me and followed every one of my directions clearly and confidently. She made my time away from my fur babies less stressful. The pets love and miss her already. She's definitely my sitter for life. 💖💖💖
