“My Chesapeake Bay is very skittish and a little mean, but through Jackson's perseverance they ended up as best pals! Very impressive and patient, few others could have taken care of my dog the way he did!”
“Ashley cared for my two senior pugs over the weekend. The dogs were happy and appeared well-loved upon our return. She kept things tidy, ensuring to clean up after herself. We'll be using her services again for next month!”
“Thank you Zyanya for being the best sitter for Lily!! Leaving her for two days was not easy but the way you cared for her, communicating with us throughout the day and following all our requests, made it easier for us to be away with our minds at ease! We can’t wait to book other services with you again!”
“Olivia was amazing! Very flexible and sent lots of super sweet updates throughout her stay. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!”
“Mattilee was awesome! She gave me plenty of updates and sent lots of happy pictures. She made vacationing easy because I knew he was in great hands. We like her so much we plan on using her again in June.”
“Ryan is loving and caring to our dog, Riley. He’s watched our home, as well and is a wonderful communicator as to how everything is going while we are away. He even sent updates and screenshots of our favorite football team!”
“Wonderful dog sitter will use her again house was left immaculate things were just left in pristine order Joey's a little antisocial but I knew he was in good hands”
“Ann watched our dog and cat while we were on a 9 day trip and we could not have been more pleased! Ann was reliable and consistent and communicated with us every step of the way and even sent photos. We were able to enjoy ourselves so much more knowing Ann was watching out for our guys!”
“I am currently on rover and my aunt helps take care of the dogs when at my home. She loves the personalities of all the dogs and is very kind.”
“Shay is the only pet sitter I would trust with my little ones! I have a dog named Uno and a cat named Lorelai. Uno does not trust people easily and is very scared of many things. I don’t trust anyone to watch after him except for Shay! She is so patient with him and gives him the space that he needs. She also knows how to calm his anxiety down when he is scared. He is an older dog and is on several supplements and medications and she always makes sure he gets everything on time! She takes him out at least every two hours as well since he can’t hold his bladder for long. Lorelai on the other hand is a sweetheart, however she gets into SO much trouble. There are many little things we need to do to keep her out of trouble such as closing all the doors, locking the trash cans, and a million other things. Every other sitter will forget to do some of these things, but Shay remembers everything which we really appreciate! She’s also an incredible communicator and is very kind and understanding. I truly wouldn’t hire another sitter! She is the ONLY person besides me that I trust with my babies. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.”
“Nora did an amazing job taking care of my dog. She communicated well and was updating me regularly. She brushed and trained him. My dog loves her also. I am glad to find someone I trust to take care of my dog”
“Bree was awesome! We came home to happy cats, which is always a good sign. She even gave them new bowls and washed the ones they had been using! We will definitely book her again.”
About: I grew up with four dogs, a pitbull, a bulldog, and two chihuahuas. I love animals, my mom is a vet and fostered this care and appreciation for animals in my family! I have a lot of experience walking both big and small dogs as well as taking care of puppies. I have plenty of time to play and spend time with your pet! I am currently a part time student so I am pretty flexible I have two friendly dogs now who love to play and a fenced in backyard and plenty of dog food and toys to entertain your pets with!

“There is no greater dog sitter in the world than Tracey. Our pup loves her and provides the best updates, pictures and details. She even leaves the house clean! We are so lucky to have found her.”
“Amanda did a wonderful job ! She’s an expert ! She is very attentive to all of our animals ! My animals are my life and she shared the same feelings and love for our animals ! She was on time never called off and provided the best care for our senior needs dog !”
“Brenda was amazing. She went above & beyond to make Chester comfortable and ease his anxiety. I will definitely be using her services again & would highly recommend her.”
“Kendra is just great. I’m a highly anxious person on a good day and it’s so difficult finding someone I don’t know yet but trust to stay in my home with my fur babies. I felt trust for Kendra the moment we met, my dog loved her instantly, she sent me several updates and communicated frequently throughout the process from the time I requested a sitter to the time she left my house. I highly recommend her.”
“Cara is so wonderful and our boys love her! She made sure when our little guy wasn’t feeling good she stayed a little extra time with him, going above and beyond to make sure our dogs we’re comfortable and safe when we were traveling.”
“Kendall did an amazing job! We used Kendall to house sit our home and babysit our French Bulldog Violet for 4 days. My wife was quite anxious as we have never left our dog before. Kendall came over in advance, met us and our dog Violet. Kendall was wonderful to meet and inspired confidence. Kendall took amazing care of our house and our dog while we were away. There was a huge storm, the power failed, and lightning struck close by, and Kendall did a great job of staying calm and looking after everything. Kendall sent my wife regular text messages, and sent pictures of the dog! The dog loved Kendall and when we came home we were pleased with the way the house was left. We were pleasantly surprised that she also washed all of her bed linens and took out the trash. The sink was clean, the dishes were done. We would highly recommend Kendall, and we will be using her again. If you are looking for someone reliable to look after your pet, and your house, Kendall was great.”
About: My family rescued our first (adult) cat off the streets when I was in 5th grade, and I’ve been dedicated to helping cats (and other animals) as much as possible since then. Two of our cats are brothers (we only have one of them now - the other one unfortunately passed away early 2022) - rescued them right before they were about to put them to sleep because no one was taking them when they were very young kittens, I was in 7th/8th grade. The other two were a mother and kitten daughter, I was a sophomore in high school. Because I have experienced having 3 females and 2 males in the same household for 4-5 years, I understand the importance of measures needed to be taken to introduce new pets, keeping peace, and how to break up fights before they start or as they start. I’ve had cats who have dealt with and have helped them out with the following: having cancer, giving birth, stage four kidney disease, feline aids, ear infections/ear mites, saddle thrombus, open wounds, eye colds, some sicknesses, soothing distressed animals, giving baths, brushing teeth, cleaning litter boxes, playtime, distracting cats, feeding them, cuddling, minimal/medium level grooming, cats going through heat (the mother & daughter both weren’t neutered for a bit - some of my old stuffed animals will never be the same) and many more things. My sister has a cattle herding dog that I’ve babysat whenever she comes into town - many times when he was a puppy so in terms of dogs, my experience is: dealing with teething, playtime, going on walks/picking up any poop, taking him out for bathroom breaks, feeding, training (with instructions given by owner), soothing anxious dogs, dogs that jump, anxious barking/anxious energy, puppies with separation anxiety, distracting dogs, cuddling, and minimal grooming. I am happy to bring your pet to and from vet appointments, as long as the location is within a 10-15 mile radius. I can take care of dogs/puppies, cats/kittens, reptiles, hamsters, chinchillas — basically any animal aside from snakes and spiders, I’m happy to take care of! I have an enormous amount of love for animals and although they are very smart, I feel a personal responsibility to help them and care for them, especially when they can’t do it themselves. Listening to animals and their verbal/physical cues, along with noticing and respecting the boundaries they have, is so important. I’ve also: helped friends walk their dogs, feed them, soothe them, distract them, and bathe them. I do not have experience with taking care of senior dogs, but I do have experience with taking care of senior cats. As of 2022, I have experienced dealing with the death of three of our cats (we had to give the fourth one away after a few years - we couldn't afford to have her neutered, and we decided it would be better for her well being if she was able to have owners who could do that for her), so it's given me an immense understanding of how important it is to give pets all the love, affection, care, keeping them safe, keeping them healthy, etc needed. Although, I am sad that we're down to just one cat now, who I love very much, being able to take care of other cats helps keep life from feeling too empty, and gives me a chance to continue giving my love to animals. Clients who choose to continue booking with me get locked in prices — this means that the cost you paid per visit after your second booking gets locked in and doesn’t change, even if I increase my per drop in visit cost. This became implemented in September of 2023 — if you’re a client who has been booking with me prior to September, your prices are already locked in. If you begin booking with me post-September 2023, you’ll need to book me at least two times in order to get locked in prices. I find that working with the same pets consistently allows them to feel more comfortable and safe and allows me to build a good relationship with clients, as well. I currently am taking online classes at College of DuPage, so that is a very flexible aspect of my schedule. I also have a part time job as an Interior Design Assistant that I have a set schedule for, so that shouldn’t cause any issues. I work Tuesdays and Thursdays for the majority of the day, but am able to do drop in visits at night. I occasionally work Saturdays as well, but can do afternoon and night drop in visits on those days. With that being said, I prefer to have at least 1-2 weeks notice in advance when booking visits to ensure time for doing a meet and greet. I do not book drop in visits without doing a meet and greet first. Meet and greets are my vetting process to ensure safety for myself, any potential clients, and your lovely pet(s). It also allows us to go over any instructions, me receiving keys/codes/etc, and gives your pet(s) a chance to get a feel of me with their owner around so they feel safer when seeing me for the first time and it is less of a surprise to them when I arrive for any actual bookings. I'm not a morning person, so I prefer to do afternoon and evening drop ins, that way I can ensure that I can do the drop ins at the time we've agreed on, but am willing to do late mornings (starting at 11/11:30 am). To get this aspect out of the way -- when doing meet and greets, I bring my mom with me for my own safety. I hope any owner who wants to work with me is okay with that. I would also bring her with me for any evening drop ins I do. Every cat I've done a drop in for always loves her immediately - I'm convinced they can sense the mom in her, and they're drawn to that. She is also willing to substitute for me and do drop in visits whenever I have a work shift that I cannot change, as long as it's also okay with the pet owner. I will likely not be hosting animals in my home overnight -- although we only have one cat now, he is very territorial and anxious. While I would love for him to have a friend to play with, I would not risk the safety of your pet or mine. At a client’s home, I would of course respect any boundaries they have in terms of where they want their pet and where they don’t want them, what they can and cannot do, etc. I would prefer to be given a list of instructions of rooms they’re not allowed in, activities they enjoy, if the litter box needs to be cleaned out, if one pet is particularly anxious or needs me to sit there with them while they eat (my cat needs me to pet him while he eats), things they like and things they don’t like, etc. I like communication to be as clear and thorough as possible, so I can do the best job and keep clients and pets as happy, comfortable, and safe as possible and to help build trust. In terms of administering any type of liquid medicine like eye drops or oral medicine, I would prefer to solely do drop ins in the evening, so I can take my mom with me for help. Whenever we administered liquid medicine, but specifically the two examples I mentioned above, it's always been a two person job.
