“Candice is so wonderful, kind, and respectful! She regularly helps me with my dog during the week while I am at work. I have a somewhat strict training protocol I want to follow with my dog, and Candice is respectful of it. She is experienced with dogs and quickly learned the training steps! She is reliable and very communicative. I don’t worry about my pup at all when he is in Candice’s care!”
“Nick's love and care for animals is unparalleled. He has years of experience dog walking and pet sitting, and has a distinct sense of responsibility for every kind of pet and their individual needs. I have seen his dog Joni go from being scared, skinny dog from a pound to a warm, playful pup while in his care. I absolutely trust him to care for any animal he comes across.”
“Kaitlin checked in on our two cats while we were away for three weeks. She played with our very active cat and tired him out enough that he didn't tear up anything around the house. She was also able to entice our other very nervous kitty out to play. The cats were perfectly set with food, water, and litter the whole time she was taking care of them. She even indulged our active kitty on a walk, which we have never trusted a pet sitter to do before. She managed to keep him safe and occupied while he sniffed around the neighborhood and climbed trees. She sent us some very cute pictures of their adventure. Kaitlin has also been working in vet medicine for several years. Our cats luckily did not have any health problems while she was taking care of them, but we felt comfortable leaving them with her if something did come up. We also asked her some vet questions we had been wondering about and she had very helpful answers. Overall, she went above and beyond taking care of our cats.”
“Walker is great. He is a responsible and loving pet owner and caregiver, always puts the animals first. Your animals are in great and loving hands with Walker, you can trust him to the MAX.”
“Alexis has been wonderful to our sweet puppy, Poppy. We hired her to give her walks in the middle of the day to give me a break while working. I’m so impressed by her communication and the great way she engages and cares for Poppy on her walks, making sure Poppy doesn’t eat anything she shouldn’t and helping her gain confidence on the leash. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Alexis!”
“April has been awesome this week helping out with Leeroy while I recover from a surgery. Leeroy is a bug, strong scent hound but she did well controlling him and he came home happy after each walk.”
“Patrick has stayed at my apartment and watched my two senior cats on several occasions. They like him very much and are happy to see him whenever he comes to take care of them.”
“Amber is an exceptional petsitter! My two senior kitties, Spike and Mango, fell in love love with her immediately. Amber has a natural calm and kind energy and my kitties just wanted to snuggle with her. She’s a responsible caretaker, reliable, and punctual. Amber fed them and gave them their medications on time, she cleaned up after them and kept our house maintained, and she was on the dot with feeding them breakfast and dinner. Amber’s care is above and beyond. If you want an amazing pet lover to care for your pets, then please reach out to Amber. I cannot recommend her highly enough!”
“Jennifer has taken wonderful care for both of my dogs. When my dog Anakin was sick with a brain tumor, I hired Jennifer to come walk him but also spend time with him so he wasn’t so alone while I was away at work. Jennifer has an amazing love and understanding with dogs and would highly recommend her. Now that I have a new dog, Jennifer has helped me out with walks and house sitting and she is trustworthy, sends updates and pictures, and is good left my place is perfect condition.”
“I hired Jane to petsit/walk my dog, Shadow. I normally am very hesitant to trust my dog with other people, as Shadow is a very skittish dog and distrusting of strangers (he is a rescue). However, Jane was able to win Shadow over with her calm energy and the pet sitting went well. I will definitely use Jane again when I go on a trip - she is extremely reliable and loves animals!”
“Shelly was wonderful! She came to meet Ollie ahead of the walks, and was fabulous walking Ollie. She was also really fast with communication. He loves her! We'll be rebooking for more walks. Highly recommend Shelly!”
“Sarah is a top notch Pet sitter. She has taken care of my dogs for Years. She is caring and responsible and full of energy and adventure. The animals are always so happy when she is with them and I never have to worry. It is the best feeling to have peace of mind when someone else is caretaking Your pets! Sarah is amazing!”
“Casssandra has been the best dog walker!! She is very kind, communicative, and easy to work with. My dog absolutely loves her and gets so excited every time he goes on a walk. I definitely recommend Cassandra as a safe and trusted walker.”
About: I've grown up with both cats and dogs from infancy into old age. I'm experienced in the caretaking needs at every stage of your best friend's life. I work from home and have a lot of flexibility to build in enrichment activities for your pets. For example, in the mornings dedicating an hour play sessions with the kitties or a nice morning hike with a pupper in tilden park. I have the ability and freedom to be attentive your pet's needs. I think consistency is key for keeping a pet feeling safe and happy. I would love to communicate with you about your usual routine with your pet and uphold that schedule while your away.
“Benjamin did a great job with our Luna! This was her first walk with a stranger and it took a bit for her to warm up to him, but he had the patience to calm her fears. He was on time and very kind and professional. Will definitely use him again!!”
“Nicole has been so incredible with helping to get our shy dog, Arrow, out of his shell and out on walks. At first, he refused to leave the house but she worked with us to build trust and confidence and now he looks forward to her coming over. She's been a huge help and we are so excited and grateful to have her walk our dog.”
“Deola’s loving personality shines through everything she does including how she cares for pets. Seeing how meticulously she cares for her own and my friends cats is really a joy to watch”
“Christopher was amazing to work with! He was always professional, and took great care of Gary, even sharing helpful suggestions around his care. He gave a detailed report after each walk, and made little tweaks to the walk routine to optimize it for Gary's needs. It's obvious how much he cares about dogs. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone”
