Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight at your sitter's home.
“We really enjoyed Lindsey for our 5-day trip away from home. She was super communicative, flexible, and seemingly showered our lab Louie with cuddles, which was exactly what we wanted. We will DEFINITELY be using her as our go-to Rover.”
“I hired Jane to petsit/walk my dog, Shadow. I normally am very hesitant to trust my dog with other people, as Shadow is a very skittish dog and distrusting of strangers (he is a rescue). However, Jane was able to win Shadow over with her calm energy and the pet sitting went well. I will definitely use Jane again when I go on a trip - she is extremely reliable and loves animals!”

“Our dogs loved their stay! They came home happy and relaxed. Jeff and Beth were awesome hosts and kept me up to date on all the daily activities. So excited to have a wonderful dog sitter in the East Bay.”
“Donald watched our dog for 16 days, and sent us photos of walks, meals, naps, and playtime every day. She was very well treated and in great condition when we got her back. She shared time with several other dogs, usually 1:1, and got on fine with all of them. We would happily leave our dog with Donald again. :)”
“She was phenomenal. Dealt with both of my stubborn dog and cat in great stride. Gave me lots of updates and really cared for my guys well. The dog is still sleeping so definitely got plenty of exercise. Highly recommend.”
“Ashley and her husband helped me out when I was in a bind and needed a sitter on short notice ! They were kind and sent to many pictures and updates 13/10, definitely would book again.”
“Sara was great! Super responsive, lots of pics, and our dog got along amazingly with hers. Would highly recommend!”
“Marco was so amazing with Oreo! Oreo had a blast and really opened up to Marco. He came home very happy and we cannot thank you enough Marco for taking such amazing care our Oreo!😃”
“Michelle is a great go to for my nights away! She is very tentative with my cats and is very good with their needy schedules. I would highly recommend having Michelle watch your furry friends!”
“Omar was available on short notice, organized a meet and greet the same day, and took great care of my dog Lenny during his stay. They went on multiple walks and I got multiple photo updates. You can tell that Omar enjoys the company of dogs and takes good care of them.”
About: I've always loved dogs and have petsat for many years. I have a fun, 2 year old lab-pitt mix; we live down the street from a dog park and are often on hikes or Point Isabel. Would love for her to have a companion. I currently work from home and have a flexible schedule. My dog and I go for hour long walks in the morning (8-9am) and early afternoon (1-2:30pm). We're usually at a dog park or on a hike between 4 and 6pm I live in a condo unit with a fence. The dogs are allowed to spend time outside in the sun during the day and have free reign of the home during the day.
“Chad was incredibly nice and such a pleasure to work with! My dog Sammy came back happy and relaxed after staying with Chad, and he was super sweet to send me pictures during Sammy’s stay!”
About: I’ve taken care of animals majority of my life whether it be my own or friends and family. Back in high school, I worked in a doggy daycare center and watched 15+ dogs at a time for several hours a day.I always had a passion for animals and for years thought I’d follow in my grandfathers footsteps of being a vet. Now, I’d just be happy to befriend your furry friend for a day or the weekend! I have a full time job but work from home on Mondays and Fridays. Therefore, I should be able to care for your furry friend Thursday nights through Sunday nights. Since I have 2 cats of my own, I will only be able to care for animals in my own apartment. I have a fenced in patio with a small garden. I live in a very walkable neighborhood and in walking distance of a dog park. I also live with two cats (both neutered) who have grown up around dogs since they were kittens. As long as your dog is with me, they will be monitored at all times and welcomed into my home like one of my own.
“Greetings, Alex has watched my dogs for months at a time while I was deployed or visiting family overseas. He has my highest recommendation and has gone above and beyond countless times. He has a genuine love for animals and I wholeheartedly recommend him.”
“Wow! I can’t thank you enough for the service that you provided for myself and my dog. I received daily updates and photos letting me know my dog was safe and having tons of fun. It meant so much to me to know that the dog I love was receiving love in someone else’s home, what a gift!”
“My husband and I had to go out of town due to a death in the family and Jonathan was kind enough to accommodate Benson and Izzy on short notice. He took great care of them - sending us multiple photos and updates a day. One of our dogs has some lease reactivity towards other dogs, which inexperienced handlers can find challenging. Jonathan had no issues at all with this and even took them to the farmers market. We're so grateful to Jonathan and Benson and Izzy loved their stay!”
“Friendly, kind, attentive and communicative. Our pup had a great time.”
“Cass was awesome! Dax can be a little slow to warm but seemed to like Cass immediately. She sent pictures every day and spoiled Dax with multiple walks each day and letting her sleep with them in bed. Dax and Cass' dog, Wayward, got along really well and it was a little sad to take her away from them at the end of the week! Will definitely leave Dax with Cass next time we leave town!”
“We are so happy we found Jessica! She provided excellent care for our dog. She was responsive, communicative, friendly and professional. She provided updates, photos and videos of our dog throughout the day. We could see that our pup was having a great time with other fur friends and on outings. We felt very comfortable and reassured that our fur baby was in great hands. We highly recommend Jessica and look forward to working with her again.”
