“Kayley was fantastic! Gave our boy a good long walk which is his favorite thing. She even cooked some carrots for him since he’s too much a wuss to eat normal or frozen ones lol we will definitely use Kayley again!”
“Rosemary was amazing! She sent frequent updates about how Sully was doing and was always on time. We knew Sully was in great hands with Rosemary, which made being out of town and away from home a lot less stressful. Thanks for everything, Rosemary! Sully can’t wait to see you again soon!”

About: I’m 28, and I have taken care of many family animals and I’d love to commit to be your pets sitter. I’ll make sure that your pet is treated like my own and they’ll never lack love and care. I’m pet sitting full time. I’m gone about 3-4 hours a day total. So I have plenty of time to spend with your pet ! I live in a 1 bedroom apartment but I love going outside so I definitely have plenty of room to play with animals. We can walk to a nearby park.
About: I have lived with pets my entire life, but have experience taking care of my own dogs for the last 7 years. I have cared for both puppies and senior dogs. I have experience with overnight care for friends’ dogs as well. I currently have two dogs who I love to walk around church hill. I am a physician assistant in between jobs, so I currently have a very flexible schedule. I am happy to work with your needs on the weekends and during the week. I aim to provide compassionate care for your animals and use the techniques that you prefer. I will provide company, exercise, food, medication, and hygiene for your animals when necessary.
“This was our first time using a dog walker and Lila was beyond great! She was so open to a meet and greet to begin with and was able to spend some time with our dog while we weren’t home. The updates through Rover were so helpful and kept our minds at ease! Lila even included a bunch of photos each day! We can’t recommend her enough!”
