Olivia has watched my Corgi from ages 3 months to now (he’s one years old). Not only does he love her, I get regular updates on him and I know my dog is in the best hands. My dog is still very much a puppy and requires a lot of attention, and Olivia has the patience and care for my dog to ensure he is always happy!!

Love using Heather to watch my cat! My 17 year old cat is a grumpy old lady but Heather works her magic and gives her all the pets and love while I’m gone! An added bonus is her couture style photography that manages to make my cat look like a meowdel!

Niamh watches my dog, Stout, multiple times a week and takes the best care of her. Stout begs me to go to her house in the mornings and is annoyed when I take too long to get ready. She not only cares for Stout’s safety, but also ensures she enjoys their walks together. She also often sends me pictures of Stout, which I love to see while I’m at work.

Kira was so great with both of my pups. I have a very high energy dog and a second very shy dog who is quite stressed when meeting new humans and he took a liking to her within the second feeding/check in she had with him, which is very rare! She kept me informed the entire time of how the dogs were doing and when she was going to check on them. I could not have asked for a better dog sitter. Thanks to her, I was able to spend Christmas with my family. She made this entire process so smooth and easy for me and the dogs, can’t recommend her enough!

About: Passionate about animals, I genuinely enjoy connecting with furry friends to bring joy and fulfillment into my life, and hopefully, theirs too. I've had dogs around me since childhood, and being away from my own pets because of college inspires me to engage with yours. I've personally trained my two dogs, and my skills include grooming, walking, and ensuring overall well-being. Excited about the chance to connect with and care for your pup! Given my current academic focus, I have sufficient time to spend with your pups. I'm open to boarding, walking, and check-ins at your convenience. Just notify me in advance, and I'll accommodate by adjusting my study schedule. Whether it's at my place or yours, I'm all about making sure your pets are thriving. In my apartment, I have a large layout so there is a lot of room to run around. Daily walks and a steady routine are key for their well-being, creating a chill and caring vibe for your fur babies.

Sophia was such an incredible help watching our pup while we were out of town. Mochi immediately loved and trusted her, and we felt so comfortable leaving her at home in Sophia’s care. She took extra care to send updates and photos, making sure Mochi was fully taken care of. Loved all of the photos and videos of play time, made me know that Mochi was getting all the love. Thank you, Sophia, for all the amazing love and care you gave Moch, and all the communication and peace of mind you gave us!

Lauren was so helpful when I needed someone last minute! She used to live around the corner from me so I immediately felt comfortable that she was a neighbor, but after meeting her - she is so calm and kind and loves to chat. She seemed to really click with our cats after they got used to the idea of her coming over twice a day and we were SOOO appreciative of all the pics and videos she sent while we were away! Everything was tidy and seriously had no complaints. Great cat sitter!
