“My 4 animals were well taken care of by John Michael. (2 dogs and 2 cats) Everyone was happy and I think missed John Michael when I got home. I am pretty sure he left my home cleaner than when he arrived. Next time I need a dog/house sitter I'll be in touch. Thank you!”
“Esther took great care of my very old dog, gave his meds and put up with his very early schedule, and feed my 4 kitties too❤️I recommend her to everyone 🎉”
“Angeline is awesome! She took care of our cat and our elderly desert tortoise during our 11 day summer vacation. She made it her priority to ensure our pets and home were well taken care of. Angeline provided daily check ins with us along with cute pictures. She went beyond our expectations especially when faced with the uncertainty of the tropical storm Hillary and the safety of our desert tortoise. She is kind, thoughtful, and responsive. I highly recommend Angeline for pet sitting needs. She will care for your pets as if they were her own.”
“Left my 4 month puppy overnight, she was awesome and kept me posted and sent me pictures.. definitely will hire Crystal again.. thank you Crystal!”
“Neala was excited from first meeting with Scott. He responded to her excitement with engaging her in fetch. Scott kept us informed as to Neala's morning and afternoons. Updates were to meet our needs as this was our first time leaving our little one. Morning play time and afternoon walks.T”
“We found Savannah, talked with her, and decided to book her. We were gone for 9 days. Savannah sent us pictures and updates of Indiana almost daily. She spent the nights and cared for Indiana very well. We felt secure that he was in good hands. Indiana was very happy to have Savannah, and he responded very well to her. We would recommend Savannah as a pet and house sitter and will use her again!”
“She is great, she allowed us to enjoy our trip without worry using her again for when going out of town.”
About: As a loving pet owner myself, I understand the importantance of finding a caretaker that you trust. I will love your pets as I do my own. I will make sure your pets are happy and cared for regardless of breed, size or age. You will have peace of mind knowing I am caring for your beloved pets while you are away. I have pets that have to be cared for in a specific manner, so I understand the importance of following instructions to be sure your pets are safe. I do not work outside the home. My time is not limited or scheduled. My girls are home schooled so we have no other commitments than to be sure your pets are cared for. I am able to come to your home as a drop in, or stay in your home while you are away. I do not board in my home due to aggressive pets of my own.
“Oli was such a great sitter for our baby boy. Great communicator and excellent at making us feel comfortable with leaving Dak in her care. Received lots of photos and videos while we were away. We couldn't have asked for a better experience having Oli as our sitter.”
“My first experience with this service, and Sydney made it a wonderful one. I felt confident my doggie was being cared for, and that meant I could relax. Sydney sent updates and pictures too.. Thank you Sydney!”
About: I’ve had multiple types of animals from the moment I was born, and been a die hard animal lover ever since. I am a certified veterinary assistant and I currently work at a pet resort, so I’m experienced and knowledgeable in how to take care of all your pets needs! I currently have two cats, a 13 year old female who’s my cranky old lady and a 2 year old male who’s super rambunctious! I also have two German shepherds, so I can very easily handle large breed dogs. I can gladly walk, care for, and play with all your fur babies! Every animal I come across gets the same love and attention I’d give my own babies. Being in the veterinary medicine field I have plenty of hands on experience when it comes to caring for and handling all types of animals and all their specials needs. I am able to give oral and injectable medications no problem, follow any specific diet regimes, as well as handle any food aggressive dog with ease. I do work at a pet resort currently, but my schedule is still pretty flexible. I do not drive but still easily get around and always arrive anywhere I need to be promptly and on time. If you live outside of my service radius I reserve the right to charge and extra fee (up to $50) for transportation to your home. Thank you for your understanding! My shepherds are indoor/outdoor, they are crate trained, house broken, and get lots of play time and exercise in the form of walks and outside games of fetch. My cats are indoor only, litterbox trained, and get lots of love and playtime. All the animals also get spoiled with treats and tons of attention! I’d treat your animals the same I would my own, make sure they’re happy and healthy and taken care of. Being trained in the veterinary medicine field, I can also safely take care of any special medical needs or restrictions your fur babies may have as well.
“I absolutely recommend Jackson as a pet sitter! He does a great job with my three dogs (chihuahua, aussie & doodle). He spends quality time with them, leaves the house clean and tidy and gives me peace of mind while I travel. I highly recommend him!”
About: I have had experience at an animal daycare where pets boarded overnight. I've worked with animals from pugs to pitbulls! I also own two cats. I work overnight shifts from 11:30PM-8:30AM on weekdays and 9:30PM-6:30AM on weekends. During those hours, animals can sleep inside, I have an EBO camera to watch them during the night. They should be asleep during these hours. I don’t work during the daytime so I can keep an eye on any fur babies I’m sitting. Most time will be spent outdoors if the weather is nice. There’s also multiple dog parks in the area that I can drive to. In a clients home, I'm open to any rules and regulations implemented by the client. I like to spend as much time outside with pets as possible. If no outdoor space, I'm okay with staying inside. I'm also open to traveling to nearby parks for playtime and potty time. In my house, again, I like to spend as much time with the pets outside as possible. My neighborhood is very pet friendly and there are several dog parks and other parks nearby. My apartment has an open yard if owner doesn't want pet to travel far. If owner requires only indoor care, I have potty pads and treats on hand. I do own two cats that will be kept away from non cat-friendly animals. CAN PROVIDE UPDATES IN THE FORM OF PICTURES, VIDEOS, AND TEXTS IF REQUESTED! I love to keep owners up to date on their pets.
“Kelsey has been an animal lover since she was a small child. She grew up with farm animals as well as dogs and cats. She has worked with dogs and cats in several capacities. For almost 3 years she worked as a Veterinary Assistant where she was responsible for bathing, walking, medicating, comforting and caring for the animals in the kennels. She earned a Veterinary Assistant Certification during her senior year of high school. She also worked for 3 years caring for show dogs. Kelsey is gentle, loving and very passionate with animals. She is trained on what to do in an emergency and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a kind and trustworthy animal caretaker.”
About: I've been looking after pets since I was 12, from neighbor to family pets. My responsibilities have extended from walking the pets to sleeping next to them so they'll feel at ease. Puppies and cats have been trusted upon me and I can confidently say that I'm a puppy expert. I've worked with many different dogs and I've loved every single one. Anything that your pup or kitty requires will be my top priority. I am currently a stay at home wife, so for pups that need to be under constant watch there is no problem, I'll be available. This also goes for senior dogs who may have to be let outside more often. I'm fully available to the needs of your pets! My way of caring for a pet will always be based off of what you as an owner tells me needs to be done. My goal is to try to keep your pert as comfortable as possible while their mom and dad are gone. I'm a stickler for rules and every pet owner has a certain way of doing things with their pet and I will abide by that routine to keep your pet stress free.
“Susan has over 40 years of experience when it comes to working with animals. She was a veterinary technician, animal foster, and administrative assistant for a very popular dog rescue here in town. She is comfortable with animals with medical needs as well, she has done amazing work with dogs with burns. I would trust her with any animal, they love her! She is compassionate and in tune with how the animals are feeling, she picks up on any subtle changes in demeanor. You would very lucky to have her assist you with any day visits or overnight pet sitting. The peace of mind that comes with trusting your beloved animals with someone who truly loves working with them is important.”
About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“Lizbeth has been my biggest help with my dog. Whenever I need someone to look out for my husky rocky, I can trust Lizbeth will give him the care he needs. He can be a bit high maintenance but liz always handles the situation greatly 😊”
About: I have had animals ever since I was young. I have pet sat multiple times over my adult years just to help out my friends or family. I trained my parents dog, my families dog. I have no issue training an a dog while having them with me. I am a full time student and a full time mom, but all of my classes are online so I have open availability. My son and I love all animals. I am a single mother so trust doesn’t come easily. But you have to give trust so you can get trust. Everything is reciprocated. I have no issue meeting ahead of time to make sure that you as the doggy parents to make sure I am someone you’d like to have around your furbaby or fur babies.
“Olivia was a wonderful help to our family! I couldn’t emphasize that enough! We went on vacation for 3 weeks and she took such good care of our home as well as our two dogs and three cats. I was so appreciative for her effort and communication with us, and she even sent me videos just to make sure that we knew that our fur babies were safe and loved. I am definitely going to be booking her again and hope this helps anyone else considering her for housesitting boarding or pet sitting!”
