“Rachel did an incredible job taking care of my dog while I was away for two weeks. I have a small Pomeranian-Chi mix who is very anxious around new people. Rachel showed compassion and understanding of my dog’s needs and worked with him patiently while he warmed up to her. I would absolutely recommend Rachel to anyone looking for dog care, and will certainly ask for her help again!”
“Caroline was very responsive, on time and took good care of my Leo at the last minute! Would be again!”
About: Cats: I have had cats my entire life, so very familiar with their various needs and the many different kitty personalities (shy, goofy, playful, cuddly...love them all!). I also have a medically complicated kitty myself, so I'm comfortable helping to give medications and looking for any red flag symptoms that require a trip to the vet. Dogs: I have been around dogs my whole life and comfortable taking care of dogs of all sizes and activity levels! I firmly believe that our kitties and doggos should all get a chance to live their best life, and I would love the chance to help take care of your fur babies. :) I am currently working from home, so I have a significant flexibility in my schedule! I'm happy check on your pets whenever you need me too. I'm happy to work out a plan unique to your pet so that you feel most comfortable! I definitely understand pet separation anxiety, so also happy to give updates as frequently as you would like.
“She was great, came over to meet my dog who liked her right away, and showed up the next day to do the walk on time. Bella was happy! I would recommend her and will use her again when I need to.”
“Kim has been sooo amazing with my two 6 months old goldendoodles! She helps with walking them when I get stuck at work. She's always super sweet with them and able to keep up with their puppy energy. My pups cant get enough of her. She has such a good heart. She's also super thoughtful and caring. She'll definitely treat your pup with kindness.”
About: I am a college student with a very flexible schedule. I take care of my own pet at college, so I understand what it's like to be busy and still want to give your pets all the attention you can spare. I am dedicated to creating a stress-free and enjoyable experience for both you and your beloved pets. I'm currently a student at UVA, so my school schedule leaves me flexible times to help out with your pets. I'm busy mainly from 9-5 on weekdays during the school year, and during breaks, I have a very open schedule. I am prompt, trustworthy, and caring. When I do drop-in visits, I check in with your pets first and make sure everyone is happy and healthy, then I'll do my responsibilities. I love to hang out with your pets to make sure they aren't ever feeling lonely and send you updates on how everything is going!
“Thank you Kris! My pups always look so happy in the pictures with you and it’s the best thing in the world having a peace of mind that they are being taken care so well!”
“Jack is great! I’m a travel nurse and jack met with me a couple of days before I worked. My dog (who isn’t fond of men) loved Jack immediately. He sent me a picture on their walk and communicated with me on how Sarge did! I definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a dog walker!”
About: I am a 24 year old grad from UVA living in Cville. I grew up with a big dog at home and adopted a cat a few years ago who I adore. In the past, I have fostered puppies, kittens, dogs, and cats, so have a wide variety of experience. I am very comfortable getting pets to take medication as my family’s dog has needed this from time to time. I look forward to hanging out with your pup and/or kitty! I’m currently working full-time at the hospital but have the flexibility to work remote. Happy to take your pup out for a stroll in the morning and evening as needed! I have a lot of experience caring for pets at my clients’ homes and will always send pics when owners are away and missing their fur babies!
“Victoria has been wonderful! I contacted her last minute and she was very accommodating and flexible. She’s been so great with my dog. Highly recommend.”
“Evan was great and I would highly recommend him for any pet job! I have 2 dogs (one large and one small) and a cat. Evan would frequently walk my dogs and I always felt confident leaving them in his care. When I met Evan he was nurturing and playful with my dogs and very affectionate towards Cookie (my cat). When I traveled I relied on Evan to not only walk and feed my dogs but tend to Cookie as well, and she sure loved getting the extra attention he gave her. All in all- 10/10 would definitely recommend.”
“Maria was wonderful, and so patient with my dog. I loved the pictures, and updates that she sent. I’ll definitely be booking more dog walks with Maria.”
