“John-Michael did a wonderful job of house-sitting to take care of our two 5 year old high-energy herder dogs while we were out-of-state for the holidays. He was in daily contact with me via text, regularly sent photos and videos and messages so that I felt looped in to the action back home, picked up dog treats and used them to train our super active pups, and checked in with me promptly a couple times when there was trouble - runaway dogs, ticks. He left the house in better shape that he found it. Overall, he did a very professional job.”
About: Anyone can say they love dogs. Dogs are just so easy to love. But not everyone an say that they can give dogs the love and care that they deserve. What sets me apart from other pet sitters is my attention to detail. About 5 years ago, my dog Toto developed cataracts in his eyes and needed surgery so retain his sight. After his eye surgery, he needed several different eye drops every day to maintain his vision and keep his eyes healthy. For 5 years, I have made sure that his eyes received the medication they needed so that he can remain the spunky, lazy, happy dog that he is. I have also often taken care of my previous neighbor's elderly dog who also needed regular, scheduled medication. Without fail, he received his medication on time, even if I did have to wrap them up in a treat. If you want peace of mind when you have to leave your furry friends for a while, I'll provide the care that you need and they deserve! I am currently working full time (8am-5pm) but I can make short visits in between my work hours if needed. I am also available after 5pm on days that I am needed. I am always willing to tailor my services based on what your needs are. Whether you pet is a finicky eater, a shy one in the bathroom, or just needs regular medication, I can make sure your pet's quirks are well taken care of so that you don't have to worry while you are gone. I also provide regular photo updates along with my services so that you can be assured that your furry friends are happy, healthy, and thriving!
“Esther took great care of my very old dog, gave his meds and put up with his very early schedule, and feed my 4 kitties too❤️I recommend her to everyone 🎉”
“Jill was very great from the start! She took care of our puppy, older dog and 2 cats for 4 days. She followed all the care instructions and sent us pictures everyday, it was such a relief knowing our home was being cared for. Would love to have her watch our babies again!”
“She is great, she allowed us to enjoy our trip without worry using her again for when going out of town.”
“Coming from the Veterinary field, Eva works extremely well with animals. For short while, I lived with Eva and many times did she babysit my troublesome cat, Teddy. Eva did make sure to feed him twice a day, made sure he had fresh water and gave him lots of TLC. Normally, Teddy is very antisocial with everyone except for me but Teddy made an exception with Eva.”
“Juliann (nickname is June) was awesome with our fur babies! June sent pictures and messages regularly and wasn’t shy to ask any questions, as they came up, to be sure the best care was given. Our house was clean and taken care of too. I would definitely recommend June to house sit/pet sit, and will definitely be my first call next time I need a sitter! Thx, June! - Erin”
“Best ever! My dog loves her!”
“Left my 4 month puppy overnight, she was awesome and kept me posted and sent me pictures.. definitely will hire Crystal again.. thank you Crystal!”

About: Pets are part of my life, as family❤️ I grew up in a farm & now I love to keep furr babies around me 🐶🤗🐾 I’m a full time student who loves spending free time along with furr babies :) I’m mainly available on the weekends starting from Friday evening and in the beginning of the week. I have a fenced back yard with 3 friendly furr babies with plenty of shade and resting area. 1. Nala - 3yrs old - beagle - active friendly & loves to play 2.

About: From the time I was born there has always been a animal in the house. I have own or care for some really Exotic animals. From a Von Derk Decken Hornbill to a pony. I want to be that pet sitter who will send you pictures or answer your questions at really random hours. If your going on a trip on the other side of the world. I want to be the person who doesn't have open and closing hours. I believe animals should wear Identification at all times when in a new place. That leachs should be on before door are ever unlocked. Cats in carries before doors are unlocked. I have two dogs of my own and I love taking them with me and will plane trips around them going but some times they just can't go. I hate asking family or friends to watch them because I don't think anyone is as over bearing as me and will not watch them like I do lol. So I want to be that person for other people too. So I work 12 hour shifts on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday from 5pm to 5:30am. I am OK with taking pets those days but I just need people to know at night I'll have to put them up. In my house my dogs are played and watched around the clock. We work on simple task and training. Seen my basset hound is still young we are working on potty training. We go to the vet over the smallest things because I am that crazy dog mom lol. Mostly we play and play and play. At other people houses we follow their rules to a T. If pets need to be brushed then we brush. If pets need boil water then filter throw a tear bag then we do it. I want to do it how you do it so it doesn't stress them. So when you come home you animal is safe and happy and healthy.
About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“Ritika has loved animals her whole life and has a healthy respect for all living creatures. She enjoys connecting with pets and truly enjoys spending time with them and keeping them happy. She would love to provide any fur baby in her care with attention, play, and cuddles. She is experienced with all ages of animals and comfortable with all tasks related to baby care - meds, clean up, cooking, all of it. She truly values pets and would be happy to meet and take care of yours”
“If I have to go out of town, Jennia will come to my house to feed my pup, Rico and my cat, Skitty Monroe. I give her access to my house to stop in to feed them twice a day with play time each visit. My furbabies love her. She is very gentle and kind with a heart that loves animals. She is sure to send videos and pictures of Rico and Skitty which helps me to be at ease knowing that they are well taken care of.”
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.
“Lizbeth has been my biggest help with my dog. Whenever I need someone to look out for my husky rocky, I can trust Lizbeth will give him the care he needs. He can be a bit high maintenance but liz always handles the situation greatly 😊”
“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!”
“Yvonne was great I didn’t get to meet her but she watched my babies in our home. It was easy to trust her and she was great with the dogs. She checked in often and updated me with videos and pictures. Thank you for taking care of them. Will be a repeat client for sure!”
