Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight at your sitter's home.
“I had to leave the country for about 3 weeks due to my personal business and I asked Jason as always to care for my babies. I heard the weather was crazy here in Iowa on the first week of February, to the point where cars couldn't move. He notified me thoroughly throughout the whole 3 weeks which made me very comfortable. When I was out of contact due to time difference/internet issue, he still kept helping me out with suggestions and waited for me to respond which could've been a long burden. He truly TRULY cares about the pets, not because of business but from his heart. I really appreciate your help Jason. Thank you so much for the great care.”
“Abbey is amazing. She watched my dog with the utmost care and attention. My dog has anxiety and social issues, but she was able to care for Dean as if he was her own dog. She sent me daily updates on his health, behavior status. He had been having stomach issues recently. I highly recommend Abbey for your dog sitting needs. She’s the best!”
“Morgan did an incredible job with Rusty and was very adherent to his normal schedule. I received picture updates while I was away which always makes it easier to leave my pup knowing he’s in good hands. I already have Morgan booked again!”
“Auden is a doggy angel! She is kind, organized, attentive, communicative, and tuned into caring for our lab as if he were her own. Very thankful we found her!!!!!”
“During our weekend in town, Alexandra watched Basil on short notice. She communicates well. Basil seemed to have a great time playing with their puppy as well. Highly recommended!”
“We left Archie with Mirna and her family for a few days and he fit right in! He was able to feel comfortable with them. You could tell he was well taken care of and had so much love while there. He got to go on walks and enjoy some couch potato time too. I will definitely be asking Mirna to watch our spunky guy again soon! She was so communicative and was sure to ask questions during the Meet and Greet so they would be set up for when he stayed with her. Just overall great experience!”
“Alan was super easy work with and was great about communicating and sending pictures. My pup was as healthy and happy when I picked him up as he was when I dropped him off so no complaints!”
“Victoria is always responsive and gives great updates on how the visit is going. Our dog loves staying there and feels like he is at home. Highly recommend!”
“Travis was an amazing boarder for my pug. every day I got pictures of my dog it was very refreshing especially being out of town knowing that he’s having a good time, and was taken such good care of. I can’t explain to you how great of a sitter Travis was for Homer. I will definitely be using him in the future.”
“Lori and Kelly were wonderful with my canine kids. My dogs are very far apart in years, and they knew just what to do to make them both feel comfortable. They were patient with my high energy girl, providing suitable outlets for her to get her yayas out! And they were welcoming to my geriatric one. My dogs played well with their dogs, which was so good for their socialization. I highly recommend Lori and Kelly!”
“Stephanie was great with my 3 year old Golden, Mazy! Stephanie graciously let us have a meet and greet prior to an overnight stay to ensure Mazy was comfortable. After meeting her, I was confident it would be the perfect place to stay, and know Mazy will look forward to her next visit!”
“Morgan did a great job with my two dogs! She took them on lots of walks and kept them very active while I was away! She was also very flexible with me!”
“We had our vacation planned for about a month beforehand, and Jake agreed to hold our reservation for us until we could pay. We went on a two week vacation and had our Mastiff stay with Jake, in his Iowa City home with a big backyard. He was understanding about any needs our dog had. He was also very responsive with texts and photos we requested. Then, just after our vacation ended, COVID-19 hit the States and we weren't able to return to Iowa City for a week. Jake offered to keep our dog for an extra week free of charge. This was an incredibly kind of him to do. In conclusion, the entire 3 week stay was completely STRESS free, which Jake made sure of. He is an outstanding dog sitter. We highly recommend letting your fur babies stay with Jake for as long as you need. Best dog sitter!”
“Anna was great. She took good care of our dog and sent us updates everyday with some pictures.”
“Hannah was AWESOME. I was very nervous at first about leaving my girls alone with a stranger, but she made both me and my dogs feel so comfortable. She sent lots of photos as I requested, took the dogs for walks, to the park, and gave them cuddles. My dogs loved her and were excited to show me the new toys she let them play with! We will definitely be contacting Hannah again, and would 100% recommend her to others!:)”
“Kelly treated my dog as one of her own! She took him on walks, made him a special Sunday breakfast, and let him play in the kiddie pool with her 2 other dogs all weekend. I will absolutely be rebooking with her if I ever need boarding services in the future.”
About: I’ve had dogs my whole life, and four-legged friends mean the world to me. I have 4 years of animal shelter experience, along with 3 years of experience caring for dogs with extensive medical needs. I am a available for overnight stays, daycare, and walks. I have a 3 year old golden retriever who is amazing with other animals. For overnight stays and daycare, your dog must be friendly with other dogs and not have a history of aggression as I have my own that will be in the home as well. I look forward to providing your pup with the love and care it needs! I currently work part time, and am in college online, so my schedule is quite flexible. I am sure we can makes something work for you and your pup! I have a large apartment with plenty of room and for pups to play and enjoy themselves. I have many toys and beds as well.
“Haley does a fantastic job adapting to all of my animal’s needs. I have an energetic husky and an old cat that requires medicine at a specific time. Haley has never let me down and has no issues with my babies having health conditions. She does a great job making sure my animals are always loved while I’m away.”
“Natalie was the perfect sitter for my dog. She was very friendly and you can tell she cares a lot about dogs. My dog had a great time at her house and loved playing with her dog Ringo and her kids. I will definitely use her again in the future.”
“Thank you Micki and family for taking Rocky into your home. You flexibility in drop off and pick up hours was greatly appreciated! We look forward to having Rocky stay with you again!”
