“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.

About: Dogs have always been around in my life and I have been taking care of them since a young age. I can ensure a great dog sitting experience. I am currently between jobs, so I can ensure that I have plenty of time to take care of all your pet needs with little notice! I will always keep an eye on the dogs or cats and be aware of the surroundings we are in. I while house sitting or check in I will always be sure to be watching the pets so you can enjoy your time away stress and worry free.
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.
“Wendy is great! She was on time and provided pictures everyday. We will be using Wendy again very soon.”
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.

“We were driving through Bakersfield and needed a walker for our dog as we took a few work calls. We’re so happy we found Josh - he was super responsive, punctual, and you can tell he genuinely loves animals. He took our golden on a 5 mile walk, and tired him out for the rest of the car ride. Would highly recommend, and we plan on using him if we’re ever driving through the area again!”
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.
About: I have had pets all my life. I've taken care of 5 pets (dogs and cats) on my own for the past 6 years, including puppies big and small. Currently working in the morning and early afternoon. Plenty of time to drop-in, takes walkies and play. I've got lots of energy and plenty of patience. I don't have a yard so I always leash up before opening the door to ensure safety. Take my own pups out 3-4 times a day. I have a German Shepard mix who is a rescue and a small long hair chihuahua.
“Callie was so sweet with my dog! Roxy came home super happy and excited so we are so satisfied with the service. definitely recommend Callie and will be booking in the future.”
About: Long time animal lover and pet owner, devoted to helping our furry friends live their best life. Current dog mom of two, I've been caring for mine and other people's pets for years. I started from dropping in to check on neighbors dogs and cats in my teens to caring for the pets of families I provided childcare to in adulthood. I'm happy to walk, feed, play with, reinforce training, bathe, and clean up after any pet. I am currently working part-time, so my schedule is fairly flexible. I'm very available during weekdays up until 5pm, and for drop-ins on the weekend. If needed, I have a fully fenced in yard and both a small dog crate and a large one. Being a dog mom myself, I would only be able to house other pets if mine are with their dad or if ours jive well together. When visiting pets in their own home, I play with/give attention to the pet upon arrival, complete any tasks given to me by their owner, and shower the pet with as much love as they want while I'm there.
“My Coebe really loves Hannah! She's always so excited to see her. Hannah genuinely loves my dog and yrust me feeling is mutual. I get pics during every walk. Thank you, Hannah, for loving my fur baby as much as I do!”
“Yvonne is always great! She takes great care of my fur babies and gives me peace of mind that they are cared for.thank you!”
About: As a child the only dogs my household ever had were small chihuahua like dogs. I was always so amazed by Mass-tiffs and Pit bulls etc. As an adult I finally own my own Pit bull and he is so beautiful and loving. I love him so much, and i wanna show others that they can bond with animals as big and as beautiful as him. For the last 2 years I have been professionally and successfully training dogs at a couple places in and around Kern county. I have never loved my job more. I love what I do now. I have also recently started my own small at home Boarding and training business called MajorK9s. It’s a two man team, I wouldn’t be able to do it without my partner and he loves animals as much as I. I always love taking the opportunity to advance my technique by learning new tips and tricks this opportunity has to offer with each pet that comes to my house. I know many Pet Parents are very nervous or even maybe scared, to leave their loving pets at a strangers home to be watched over. I am a dog trainer who specializes in Dog Psychology based training, a very common issue owners usually have when leaving their pets with others is the Separation Anxiety. I am here to help you. 😊🐶
About: For all my life, I’ve been surrounded by animals. I was the kid that never had to ask for a pet because we always had one. Since I was young, I’ve helped with caring for a variety of animals, and not just dogs, either; we’ve had pets like birds and reptiles too. As of today, I stay at home with my parents and take care of our pack of 6 lovely dogs. I do all the monitoring, feeding/watering, and playing. In signing up here I have hopes that I can help other animal lovers with their beloved companions and provide a helping hand. As of right now, I have way too much free time! I make my own schedule with my current work, and I plan on making dog sitting/dog walking an integral, main part of my weekly routine. I’m always willing to work with my clients to create the best care plan for their wonderful fur babies. If your pet has special needs, needs medication given to them, or needs particularly long walks to aid their anxiety, I’m here to make sure they’re in the best care in my hands with your help.
“I met Berlyn as her and her family had recently moved to our neighborhood. I noticed the care she took with her own dogs as we would meet while walking our dogs. I was able to get to know her family and after seeing her take such care with her dogs while visiting and with mine, I decided to ask Berlin if she would be willing to house sit my dogs while we attended an event away from home. She was prompt very self-directed, and very detailed in her approach to my instructions about the dogs. While we were away, she periodically texted me with updates and it was the very first time in a long time that I felt very assured my dogs were in good hands. I recommend Berlyn for any dog sitting or walking needs and believe you will be as pleased with her services as I am. Sincerely, Ilene”

“Without a doubt, Nathan has proven himself to be an exceptional dog sitter in every way. His adeptness with my two energetic pit mixes was truly impressive, as he not only ensured their well-being but also formed a genuine connection with them. Nathan's respectfulness extended not only to my dogs but also to my home, which remained impeccably clean under his care. Nathan's reliability and professionalism were outstanding; I felt completely at ease knowing he was looking after my pets and my house. His regular updates and genuine love for my dogs were truly heartwarming. I highly recommend Nathan to anyone in need of a dog sitter!”
