“Kelly is a a lifesaver! Due to unexpected situation we got delayed in getting back home and needed someone to take our 8 year old dog out for a break. Kelly was very responsive and instantly went over to our house to give cookie a potty break. She walked him, fed him and promptly sent us a report with pictures. She is highly efficient and I will totally use her services again!”
“Kati did an excellent job with our Labrador retriever!! She is very responsible and communicated with us at every visit!! My dog adores her. I will definitely hire her again.”
“Rachel has been great with her daily drop in visits with our new puppy. She is prompt and dependable, and ALWAYS includes notes describing her visit along with several photos. We appreciate Rachel’s attention to detail and the good care she provides to our puppy. We can highly recommend Rachel as a dependable, caring dog sitter.”
“Grace is a lovely person who truly cares for your animals. I recently had Grace watch my 2 cats and great dane. She did an amazing job, responded quickly when I asked how they were doing and even cleaned up my house! I was pleasantly surprised to see no dishes in the sink and the blankets folded in the living room. Although some may think this is a given, I never asked this of Grace as she was only asked to watch my animals. She did everything that I asked and even sent me picture updates. Grace is not only responsible and communicative but also kind and passionate about her work. I couldn’t recommend her enough and will definitely be using her services in the future.”
“Aury did a great job watching my cat. She gave her thorough care and attention while I was away. I'm glad I found her, and I will book her again.”
“I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for the respite assistance from Carol while rehabbing my nephew's 9-year-old little dog "Nugget" who was paralyzed after falling off the bed. He finally regained some use of his back legs after 2 1/2 months of 24/7 home therapy & lots of love. After 5 months of continued home physical therapy, he is doing GREAT!”
“Dayna is fantastic. My dogs really liked her. She was extremely flexible as my plans changed several times. She sent lots of pictures and let me know what was happening with my fur babies every step of the way. I will definitely trust my babies with her in the near future. Highly recommend her.”
About: I grew up with two large dogs in my childhood, and that was only the beginning! I was reliable for pet care starting around age 8, and have loved to care for and help animals ever since. Throughout high school my family had 2 small dogs and at our peak we had 7 cats that were ours. I got my parents into the idea of fostering kittens from a local shelter as well, so we have seen over 120 kittens go through our home and get adopted in the past 5 or so years. This also gives me the unique skill set to be comfortable not only with aggressive and timid cats, but also be able to give them medications if needed. Some extra services I am happy to help with in pet care would be bathing, trimming nails, medication administration, walking, and of course feeding. Currently, I am willing to work through this service full-time or part-time. My biggest goal would be to be able to make your days/weeks easier for whatever you may need help with. If I am given a schedule that works best for both you and your pet, I can make it work. There's quite a few things I do currently to help with animal care currently, but I am of course willing to work with you on your needs from this service. As of right now I am in charge of 1 small dog and 1 cat. I feed them both wet and dry food, measure the dogs dry food, take the dog for daily walks, play with them, clean out the litter boxes daily, and I pick up the yard where the dog uses the bathroom at least once a week.
“Thank you so Much.”
About: I have three years of experience working with dogs, including training (happy to provide recommendation letters from my previous employers). I have loved animals since childhood, and I have always dreamed of working with them. That's why I am here!:) I'm working remotely, so I have the flexibility to provide continuous care for your pups. Available for boarding on weekends and weekdays, with a schedule that aligns with your pet's needs. My home includes a fenced yard and is located in a very quiet area. I don't have pets or children, so it ensures a safe and calm environment for your fur baby. When I work with dogs, I use only positive reinforcement. If your dog is used to sleeping on a bed, I'll allow them to sleep on my bed too.
“Erin is a lively, talkative and energetic person who is loving and caring to a menagerie of animals in her daily life. She loves walking and running and can handle multiple tasks as they come along with a smile and a "let's go!" attitude. She is kind and caring and always up for a challenge and a hike or walk anywhere. She is discipled and schedule minded all while making time more enjoyable and worth it. She loves animals and young people with reckless abandon and would make an excellent dog walker or pet sitter in any setting.”

“Love love love these two! I highly recommend! They were very transparent on their schedule and were able to accommodate my lil senior fur babies. Will definitely book with them again!!!!”
“Sara is an AMAZING bunny sitter who is very accommodating to all our bunny needs. We have two bunnies and sadly they don’t get along so Sara was able to put them in their own rooms and care for them while we went on our family vacation. She’s great updating us with pictures and daily updates, I would highly recommend her for any ones bunny, as long as she has room still for ours!!!”
About: I’ve never lived without a pet- I learned from a young age how to take the best care of my own. They’re part of the family! Friends and family have trusted me for as long as I can remember to take care of theirs when needed. I am a personal trainer and online fitness coach- I work for myself and my sessions are scattered mornings/afternoons so my schedule is pretty wide with availability as I can create my own around sessions and help needed! Very flexible! I have a crate if needed, and a lead in my yard for my one dog at home- she can be a friend for your pet! I always take care to give pets the time they need to adjust to a new environment/people around. I will always ask ahead of time about safety measures needed for taking a pet outside, eating schedule, etc to give the best care.
About: Due to the ongoing outbreak of canine cough, we are only boarding dogs in our home that have not been in settings with other dogs (groomer, dog daycare, dog parks, kennels, or in-home care with 3 or more dogs) in the past 3 weeks. We have a senior dog in our home and with respect to his health and the health of the other dogs entrusted to our care, we must enforce this requirement. I've been around dogs since age 8 and I've owned my own dogs for 12 years. I have 2 medium labradoodles that are super friendly and would love to host other dogs at our home. I have experience with puppy training and senior dog care. Your dog will be welcomed into our family during their stay and they will have run of the house (unless you prefer otherwise). We are crate-free unless your dog needs to be crated for any reason that you specify. Your dog will feel right at home with us while you are away. I know first-hand what it's like to worry about my dogs while I'm away from them and I'm happy to send you updates and pictures of your pet while you're gone. I am a stay-at-home parent who works part-time from home. I will be here with your pet the entire time with only short errands away from the home. We have an invisible fence in our yard for our two dogs. I will happily take guest dogs out on a leash and walk them for extra exercise. They will have run of the house (unless you prefer otherwise) and will be welcomed into our family during their stay. Your pet will also have the companionship of our two dogs that have passed temperament tests at multiple dog daycares in the area. We have 2 children: ages 4 and 8. Your dog must be comfortable with young children.
“Brooke is wonderful. Our dog is not easy to handle, and she was very understanding, punctual, and flexible. Would absolutely recommend her to take care of your furry family members!”
About: i think of pets more as best friends than just an animal, they deserve love and care just like us. we can go run around the backyard, neighborhood or park! i'm currently unemployed and have a lot of time on my hands. i'm looking for a job at a dog groomers or pet related store. i love playing with my pets with toys and giving them treats for tricks i've taught them! i like to run around and make my cats chase the toys!
“What an easy visit! Kittens got food and some attention while we were gone for a long weekend. Katerina was super easy to work with and followed instructions to a tee, would definitely book again!”
“Laura has been an avid animal lover for the 25 years that I’ve known her. Laura is not only is a responsible pet caregiver, but she genuinely loves them as a true part of the family. Anytime Laura has watched my fur-babies, I’ve always felt like they were going to be take care of with the same love and passion I give them.”
About: We have older kids. Both living outside of the home. Our dog Sparky loves to play with other dogs. He is willing to share his space all over the house. Even our bed! We love pets and treat them as family. At this time most of my work is inside the of the house I like to take Sparky for walks around the neighborhood and could take your dog too. We accept dogs up to 22 lbs. We have a fenced in yard with lots of room to run and play. Give us a try your dog will like us! About my yard My backyard has a chainlink fence and I am on a 1/2 acre lot. My experience administering medication I am comfortable with administering medication. I currently have work only a couple days outside the house a week for limited hours. Plenty of time to walk and play with your pup! We allow your dog full access to the whole house. This includes furniture if they are allowed. We have a nice sized fenced in back yard and a security gate around the front door for extra protection. We like to walk your pets and play fetch too! We will treat you pup the way we would want someone to care for our Sparky. Like one of the family. :) I am only working outside the house part-time in the afternoon a couple of days a week so I am home alot. I try to walk Sparky everyday weather permitting so I would bring your dog along if desired. I set aside play time and invite them to be in whatever room I am in. I have a sliding patio door in the kitchen on the main floor where I mostly hang out. I let pups out often in case they don't know how to tell me at first. I also set aside time for walks and playtime. I try to keep the same feeding schedule that your pet has at home when possible and that goes for treats as well. I always make sure there is plenty of water and comfortable places for them to lay around and even look out the window for their paw patrol duty. Oh I we all love cat naps!
