“Andrew took my dog on walks each day for two weeks while I was on vacation. He was very reliable, and he sent pictures every day! He even helped to do leash training with our dog, who is learning not to pull. I had peace of mind knowing that my dog was in good hands. I would absolutely recommend Andrew!”
“Anna (Maggie!) is so great with my dog Charlie - she has joyfully jumped into our daily routine from day one, and I know he is safe and having lots of fun on their walks. Maggie’s communication style is warm, professional and reassuring - perfect for anxious pup parents like myself :) I honestly can’t recommend her highly enough!”
“Jimmy is a natural with dogs and a marvelous dog care giver and excellent at training dogs. He is a wonder! So loving and kind to all dogs.”
About: I have owned dogs all my life, most of them raised from when they were puppies. My parents raised show dogs, so I am accustomed to set schedules. I've also raised hunting dogs and believe in positive reinforcement. I've often taken care of friends or family members pets and have been walking and caring for animals on various platforms for several years. I work from home and have a flexible schedule. Whether you need an early morning feeding, or an evening walk before bed, I will do my best to fit you in. I have a fenced-in yard so my dogs can roam freely. When it is hot out, I set up a small pool to keep the dogs cool while playing outside.
“Veronica, watched me Dog Athena (Aka. Little Bear). Little bear, hasn't always been the best around other dogs, and never eats when I am away. Veronica knew this going in to dog sitting her. What I will say, is that V has the magic touch, not only did little bear get along with Veronica's dog, she ate all her food. When I picked her up three days later she was happy and healthy, and she was sad to leave Veronica. I highly recommend her as she is so good with my dog, who in fairness, is not the easiest to get along with.”
About: Hi there! My name is Abby, a lover of all pets, young and old, big and small. I have taken care of dogs my whole life and I am currently a mom to a four-year-old Goldendoodle named Spencer. I have also worked at a doggy daycare facility where I monitored up to 20 dogs at a time, so a safe, happy dog is very important to me. I’m not currently working, though I am a part time student, but my full-time job would be caring for your pet! I am an experienced sitter and walker who you can trust to take amazing care of your pup. I take any and all opportunities to snuggle and go on fun adventures with dogs. I will love on your pup with everything I have. I am incredibly reliable, trustworthy, and flexible. Any and all instructions you leave for me will be followed with the utmost care to keep your little buddy happy! I am currently a part-time student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, so I will be taking classes and visiting dogs in my free time! I am available any day typically during the day as I have a dog of my own. I am very committed to creating a bond with my pup parents and being a part of their life. I’ve grown to meet so many people through dog sitting, walking, and my past job opportunity and I couldn’t be happier with what I do at the end of the day. I’m very experienced in animal care and would love the opportunity to grow a bond with you.,
“Jamie is such a caring and knowledgeable care provider for my pup! She offers a wonderful mix of exercise and enrichment and sends detailed updates after each walk.”
“I have two large dogs and Tori has been wonderful with them. She brings them on long walks and also brings them to the dog park and plays endless fetch. The dogs love her and are so excited when she comes to pick them up for their walks.”
“My kitty absolutely loves Heather! It takes away the stress off leaving town knowing she'll be well taken care of. Heather sends updates (pictures and notes) from each visit so I can see how my little fuzz is doing. Wednesday (my kitty) requires medication (hidden in food) which Heather makes sure she has eaten it each visit. Highly recommend Heather as a pet sitting!”
“Zuriel grew up with loving and caring for cats her whole life. She now watches our 80lb. dog when we travel, and he couldn’t be more loved. She not only will feed, change the litter box, or walk the dog, but she is a huge pet snuggler, and makes sure that she follows any diet rules and agendas that work best for our pets. She is a natural with animals and couldn’t be more suited to love on your furry family members.”

“Cynthia and Mark are the sweetest.. taking extra care to make sure your four-legged family member is happy and content. Communication with family is excellent.”
“Ive known Brea for a few years now and she has always obsessed with dogs! She loves them as if they were her own! She watched my families dog while we were on vacation and i rarely see our dog warm up to someone as much as she did with Brea. Very Friendly and reliable , Brea is excellent with dogs no matter the breed! I highly recommend her if you need a dog sitter”
“Matt is reliable, kind, easy going and great with pets! I highly recommend he and his wife for your dog walking and occasional overnight care.”
“I recommend Rachel highly. On numerous occasions she has house and pet sat for us. She takes her job seriously and is extremely conscientious. She is good with animals and clearly enjoys them. She is also an excellent caretaker of our home while we are away. We come home to happy pets and a clean home. When we travel, Rachel is always my first choice to be at our home, caring for our pets.”
“Lauren was awesome! Great communication and sent cute pictures along her walk!”
“Elizabeth has a big, deep heart for animals! She has a long history for watching and caring for our four-legged kids (2 cats and 3 dogs). She's very gentle and puts her knowledge of behavior-training to great use. My 3 dogs are all Labs that have pushed the 100 lb. mark and can be bulldozers if not kept in line. She's got the strength and stamina to handle the big boys, plus the care and compassion for the little ones too! I believe she is a great, loving, pet-sitter/caregiver!”
About: My wife, Savannah, and I will both be providing services. We have had cats, dogs and other pets since we were both little! We’ve also taken care of lots of people’s pets when they have been away. Most likely, Savannah will provide services for doggy day care and I will be providing the rest of the services. AN ADDED BONUS: I have a love for photography, in addition to animals, so I often combine the two. Your furry friend will most likely have several beautiful portraits by the end of our visit!! General info: -As long as I have adequate notice, I’m usually able to accommodate changes. -I will always check the hours needed between potty breaks on your pet profile or confirm with you that a little longer would be okay before accepting the booking. FOR HOUSE SITTING: I will always spend the night with your pet if you choose house sitting. FOR WALKS: During most of the school year, I am only available for walks on weekends or weekday evenings. FOR DOGGY DAY CARE & BOARDING: -If I am not home, Savannah will be home and vice versa. Someone will always assure that your furry friend gets the potty breaks they need. -At our home, we have a large, fenced in yard and a large deck. There’s plenty of room to run and also places to snuggle in. -We have a 13 year old cat and she always prefers to stay in a separate room. She’s not a dog fan but lived with them for many years and co-exists with them fine. -We have two kids: 8 and 2 years old. They are both very gentle and respectful with pets. Our 8 year old is always happy to work on training with the dogs and play fetch, too! Our 2 year old will mostly just giggle at how silly dogs are. 😁 -We love to play fetch, go on walks and go to dog parks! There is a nice walking trail near our home that is great for walks!
About: Ever since I was 12 we have had a dog! I have a 2-year-old Miniature Schnauzer who is absolutely spoiled with playtime, walks, and love. Over the years, I have been honored to help family and friends care for their dogs as I would my own. This summer I have the flexibility and free time to care for your pets based on their needs! I look forward to making them a priority. I recognize I am a guest in a client's home. I always try to leave a space better than I found it and respect that your dog is comfortable in their home.
About: I’ve taken care of puppies to senior dogs since I was a little girl. My dad owned a doggy daycare and it was a great experience learning how to care for animals. I currently work full time and I go to school. Pet care will fit into my schedule because I do work night shift. I will have plenty of time to properly care for your pets. I will be there to watch your home and make sure your pet is safe. I will follow all of your instructions to assure that I keep everyone safe.
