I hired Tara relatively last minute, yet she made time to come over prior to the job to meet my elderly dog and cranky cat. She was completely comfortable with their care, including medication for our dog. Her check ins were timely and through. We will definitely hire her again!

Angela did a great job taking care of my cat during a 2 week trip; she went above & beyond in fixing issues with his automatic litter box and was always in contact by text to resolve any issues. Would definitely use her again!

About: I have had many dogs growing up and have a lot of experience caring for them. I’ve always been the dog walker in my family as well. I am a college student. I have two days a week completely free of classes and the rest of the week I am done by 12. I am very flexible and have a lot of free time! I love keeping everything clean. Animals obviously love a safe space especially when their owners are away. My top priority is making your animals feel safe!

Lindsay did a great job. She proactively offered to stop over to meet the dog in advance of taking care of her. She was timely and she sent pictures as requested. She also got along well with the dog. It was a great experience and I would definitely work with her in the future.

Victoria was great with all 3 of my dogs. It tends to be a circus wrangling all 3, but she did an awesome job. Victoria is attentive to detail and great at communicating. We will definitely be booking with her again!

About: I have some vet school experience. I have taken care of new born puppies up to senior dogs. I have volunteered in animal shelters for years. I have two animals, 1 cat and 1 dog. Both are rescues and very loving and friendly with other animals. I will slowly interduce your animals to mine if you choice to have me sit them. I walk my dog. Let him outside while watching him on the lead (he likes to lay in the sun). The cat has his litter box and tons of toys (as does the dog). They are both very spoiled.

I cannot recommend Cole enough. If I could give him 1,000 stars, I would! He is the PERFECT pet sitter/walker. He spends so much time loving and cuddling with my dogs and they absolutely love him. Bonus - he loves the cold and is not afraid to walk the dogs in the snow! He is incredibly compassionate and loving towards all animals. He is organized, responsible, ALWAYS on time, clean and very respectful. You will NOT be disappointed by booking with Cole!!!
