We had a wonderful experience with Carla. She was very attentive and communicative with detailed updates while we were away. Our dogs can be reactive on leash, and she worked with them so well. We highly recommend Carla for your dog sitting needs!

Hired Kasch to care for my older doggo, G, who has little tolerance for the young pups at her usual boarding facility. This was my first time having a pet sitter in my home and wasn’t sure how my senior rescue dog would do with it as it was a first for her as well. Kasch was fabulously communicative asking questions to ensure her well-being. He was patient as my pup took her time to warm up to him. She got lots of walks and was able to stick to her usual schedule. As the weekend went on, G grew more and more comfortable having Kasch provide care. I came home to a happy, well regulated dog. I highly recommend Kasch and will definitely call on his services in the future.

Jackie was amazing! She sent us regular picture/text updates, and we could tell that the animals had a nice full weekend. She was kind enough to wash/redress the bed linens, which was much appreciated. We would love to have her back again.

Alyson is fantastic. We left our dog walnut with her for a long weekend and she took excellent care of him and our house! We received numerous updates and photos each day of her and Walnut going for walks, playing with toys, snuggling on the couch, etc. you couldn’t ask for a more compassionate sitter, she will treat your animal like her own! Thank you Alyson, we can’t wait for you to play with Walnut again!

Melissa took great care of our little Samgirl, who has some special needs as an elderly dog. She takes copious notes to ensure she has all the specific routines down pat. She is very friendly and genuinely caring. She went above and beyond with a couple of household cleaning tasks as well. We look forward to having Melissa back!

Rover Rover, let Catey come over! :D We had Catey house sit for us and our 7 animals ( 2 dogs and 5 cats) in 2018. She stayed at our house for a week and cared for all our babies while my husband Jeff and I were on vacation. All our animals were quick to friend Catey and even our most skittish kitty cat warmed up to her in the first few days! Catey sent us pictures of our animals every day and made sure we were updated daily on how things were going. We would highly recommend Catey to house sit and walk your dogs for you! We trust her to be in our house with our babies and feel good knowing they are well taken care of.

About: Hi, I’m Courtney! I’m passionate about providing the best care for your furry family members. With a reputation for reliability, excellent communication skills and a deep sense of responsibility, I’m here to ensure that your pets receive the care and attention they deserve. I have owned cats and dogs for 25 years. I have had experience with dogs that have high anxiety, high energy levels and everything in between. My patience with pets is above and beyond due to training my mother’s dogs recently as 8 month old puppies from the shelter. As a graduate student, I have a better schedule than that of a full time employee. I would love to talk your pets on walks during my lunch breaks, before or after school. When you entrust your pets to me, you can rest assured that they’ll be treated as my own (with lots of snuggles and love). I believe in open communication, so you’ll receive regular updates in your pet’s well-being while you’re away, whether that’s ensuring they get their medications, exercise or cuddle time. I’m committed to maintaining your pet’s routines, health, and their happiness. Reach out to me today and let’s discuss how I can provide the best care and attention to your four legged family members! I’m currently a graduate student taking classes full time, but have lots of time to care for your pets before school (before 8pm), during lunch break (12-1pm) , and after school ends (after 5pm) Monday, Wednesday- Friday. On Tuesdays, I have more availability, and only have school from 1-3pm. On weekends, I am completely free and enjoy being outdoors and would love a four legged friend to take with me on walks. As a pet caregiver, I prioritize safety, trust, and a positive environment for pets. In my client's home, I conduct a thorough assessment to identify potential hazards, implement secure confinement measures, and establish a consistent routine to build trust. I create a stimulating and comfortable environment by incorporating enriching activities and maintaining cleanliness. Communication with clients is key to understanding their pet's unique needs, ensuring a tailored approach to care and reinforcing a trustworthy relationship.

Mackenzie was a fantastic animal support person for our Sammy. Very communicative and understanding to all of his unique needs. Sammy has never been calmer after we've been away than he was with Mackenzie. Without hesitation we'd have her back to hang out with him again.

Amazing! Josh helped us out when we had another sitter cancel last minute-- moving his schedule around and making all sorts of accommodations to make sure our senior dog would be well taken care of while we were away. And the care was incredible! Treats, love, and ice cream for our old boy (and the cat seems pretty happy too!). I hate to recommend him since he is the only sitter I will ever use again and I don't want him booked ( ;) ), but in not being selfish, hire Josh immediately. He also went above and beyond taking care of the house. If you need pet care, Josh is your guy! Thank you Josh for a wonderful experience.

Rachel pet sat our elderly French bulldog while we were out of town for a week. She was very professional and most importantly she treated our Molly with so much love! She was reliable in giving twice daily meds and a complicated special diet. I highly recommend Rachel and would not hesitate to have her pet sit for us again!

Morgan’s great—conscientious, communicative, and most importantly, concerned with the health and happiness of the animals she cares for. She took care of our 11-year-old shepherd and rolled with his quirks and foibles like a pro. We’ll be asking Morgan to hang out with Lyle again.

Gabe has watched both my dog and my cats many times when I’ve gone out of town before. He’s very responsible, has never cancelled or otherwise let me down. He clearly loves all animals and I feel confident leaving mine in his care.

Dana was a fantastic dog sitter for my two dogs. She provided several photos and walked the dogs outside 3 or more times daily. Highly recommend.
