My dog ​​and I were very happy with Christian. Christian is awesome, very attentive and caring. He kept me updated throughout the day with comments, photos and videos. I felt very comfortable leaving my Scooby with Christian. I will definitely hire him again. Thank you for taking such good care of my Scooby prince.

Kenny took care of our three dogs and one cat for a week while we were on vacation and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. His attention to each pet's needs, the way he engaged with each of them, his patience with our 17 year old spicy chihuahua (with special needs) was more than I could have hoped for. Kenny was always communicative, sent lots of pictures, asked all the questions you hope your sitter will ask, and took amazing care of our pets and our home. Having him care for our crew made our vacation so much more enjoyable because I knew I didn't need to worry about how things were going at home. Honestly - if I could give Kenny more than 5 stars, I would - he's the best!

Sally was awesome with my dog who is suffering from separation anxiety. She took her time establishing trust and after just a short time, she was one of Bourbon’s favorite people. I will use her again very soon.

This was Luciano's first stay with Onyx, who is a Rescue who has only lived with me for a little over 3 weeks at the time of my trip. They had a great meet and greet as Luciano is an genuine dog lover and Onyx was so happy crawling all over him and licking his face. When he came for the sit, I had left and Onyx was quite cautious in coming out of his crate, so Luciano tried to to coax him out and gave him the time he needed to decide when he was ready. Once he was past his cautionary stage, they had a great time. The next we Knew he was sitting on Luciano's lap and was his usual loving self! Luciano has a very warm, calming personality, and he has spent the weekend in my home before as he did this time with my prior Dachshund, Max, and they had a great time, too! He will be back for a weekend in November and I know they will have another fun weekend as Onyx has a lot of energy, so he will be fully amused with Luciano.

About: I've owned and cared for pets my whole life! I currently board and care for several of my friends' animals and they suggested I sign up for pet care services, so here I am! Animals are the light to the soul! ❤️ Have been employed by Mosaic fertilizer for 10 years. Currently a project manager and work from home a few days a week, and have flexibility during certain hours, most days of the week. I have a decent sized fenced in yard and 3 friendly dogs who also love other animals. Hubby and I have been known to spoil a pet ... or 2... or several is a more accurate statement. Lol.

About: I’m an animal lover who enjoys playing and cuddling with fur babies. I will give them much attention as well as get the necessary duties accomplished without hesitation to contact the local vet if I don’t know how to care for a specific situation. I enjoy creating my own schedule and prioritize care into my routine to soothe, comfort and entertain myself and others. Weekends are my most available times but I need daily interaction with companions and will happily care for them. I feel at ease when I can see or hear animals within the home, I will get curious to search for the ones that hide! Regular schedules for feeding, potty and play time are ideal so I and the pets know what’s coming. Positive reinforcement is a remedy I like to use to prevent unwanted behaviors, a lot of times with my own pets it comes with treats.

Amanda is a wonderful person who truly loves animals. She is always respectful to us as well as our animals. Would recommend her to anyone needing a pet sitter to stay over night or come over during the day. We have used her for times when we have gone out of town. She cleans up after herself and the dogs. She is a vet technician, so she can identify any issues that may go on with our animals while we were away. Will definitely use Amanda again.

I have an Australian Shepherd puppy and he absolutely loves Gabby! He gets so excited everytime she comes over to take care of him or take him for a walk. She even gives him baths and he hates baths and still loves her. I highly recommend Gabby to anyone who needs help with their pets. 10/10 recommended

About: I’ve taken care and been around all sorts of dogs since I was born. I’m very gentle and I know dogs’ body language. My dog also recently had puppies so I was taking care of them as well and cleaning up all the messes. I work a part time job at a restaurant and my schedule is pretty much the same I work Sunday- Thursday I’m off Fridays and Saturdays usually, sometimes it’s different but I’ll always let you know before hand and we can work something out I would love to bring pets into my home but I have 3 dachshunds of my own who are friendly but they would go crazy so I would rather go to your home or a dog park.

About: I have two dogs personally that I have always frequently bathed, walked and fed. I trained them both myself, and I can’t wait to take care of yours. I currently work part-time, so I’m able to play and take care of your babies over the weekend. I primarily service in drop by visits, housesitting, and dog walking. I like to think I’m a quick learner and can easily adapt to taking care of your fur babies in your home. Just let me know what you need and when and consider it done :)
