“I felt very comfortable leaving our senior cat with Aidan! He followed her medication/feeding schedule perfectly and left our apartment neat and tidy.”
“Chelsey was great! Luna was very confortable with her and she left the apartment as she found it. She sent me updates throughout the evening and even shared a few pictures of Luna having the best time! I would definitely contact Chelsey again if we need a sitter.”
About: I've always loved caring for animals, when a close family friend's elderly dog became ill, and they were busy with work and needed a sitter, I looked after her. Due to this experience, I am able to care for any pet and follow medication needed regardless of age. I also cared for a two-year-old pup with a recurring ear and skin infection and took steps to follow the vet's order, such as regularly cleaning out his ears and applying ointment, and bathing him in a prescribed shampoo. I am currently in University, and fortunately it is only 15-20 minutes from my home! I will have plenty of time to spend with your pet and take them out for walks since my apartment complex is pet friendly with plenty of grassy areas! My apartment is quite spacious and to avoid your pet becoming overwhelmed in an enclosed space, I will ensure that they get out for a long walk once or twice a day. There are no pets in my home if there is any concern in that regard. If you prefer me to take care of your pet in your own home, I will follow the same steps!

About: I have been taking care of my family and friend's pets for 15 years! I have the most experience with senior dogs but I am familiar with dogs of all ages. I also have experience giving oral medication and other senior dog care. I work remotely so if you have wifi I can come to your home and work remotely while caring for your pets and give them plenty of attention and potty breaks throughout the day. In the evenings and on weekends I am available to walk, play, and relax with your pets! Pets are not allowed in my building so I am only available to come care for pets in your home and for walks in surrounding areas and parks. I am available for overnight sitting in your home.
“Hana was very attentive to our cat who’s a young, energetic, and needy boy. She played with him a lot, followed our instructions well, and gave lots of attention and love to our cat. We hope to have her house sit with Remy again in the future! She also left our house exactly how we left it, clean and tidy!”
“Olivia did a great job looking after our 3 month old puppy for the evening. It was the first time my wife and I had left our puppy alone with someone else for several hours which was nervewrecking particularly because our puppy is quite attached to us. But Olivia went above and beyond to make it a smooth experience. She visited our home a couple days prior to the house sitting so she could meet the puppy and better understand our dog’s schedule / logistics. She showed up right on time and gave us consistent updates including when our puppy had settled down after we left to reassure us that everything would be fine. We’ve already booked Olivia for another house sitting based on how great she was!”
“Anne was so wonderful and communicative while house sitting for us. When we met Anne it was definitely a relief as we were panicing about finding someone for the upcoming holiday weekend. I felt that I left my house and dogs in the hands of a long time friend. We are definitely planning to use Anne for overnight stays in the future.”
“Korrey had excellent communication during my entire trip, was thoughtful and kind and conscientious. Being able to keep my pup in her own environment was a joy for her and me! And Korrey spoiled my Eva like she was his own - hang time, walks, and countless trips to the dog park (her favorite place on the planet! ) and sent pics of all their adventures. Korrey went above and beyond in every aspect and I look forward to reaching out to him the next time we're in need of a sitter!! Seriously cannot recommend him enough.”
“Kassidy did an amazing job at caring for my senior standard poodle for an entire week. She kept me well informed with frequent updates and pictures. I will definitely be requesting another booking with her soon.”
“Jessie did a terrific job -- Reba got lots of good walks and pets and Jessie kept my home clean and orderly. Jessie sent updates, photos, and videos throughout her stay. I couldn't ask for a better housesitting experience -- thank you Jessie! Five stars, and I'm hoping this pro-level housesitter/dogsitter is available in the future.”
“We are so excited to have found Mega. She took such good care of our pups! Our dogs can be picky with people -especially our COVID pup. Our older dog immediately took to Mega, rolling over for belly scratches and bringing Mega her toys. By the end of our meet and greet, Minnie Bruce was starting to warm up. By the end of the first night she was getting licks and they were curled up on the bed with her. You could tell from the photos she shared that our pups were happy and content (all sorts of smiles and soft eyes). After all the attention she gave them, I think they are a little sad to have us home and back to work today.”
“Robert is FANTASTIC, as Ranger gets older I’m super hesitant to leave him. Robert eases my mind and allows me to enjoy my vacation knowing he is on the job taking care of Ranger. Highly recommend Robert!!”
“William took amazing care of our dogs. They liked him immediately and we felt very confident leaving them in his care. William was an excellent communicator, sending us lots of pictures throughout his stay. William has my highest recommendation!”
“Urmi was amazing with our sometimes reactive dog. Maya loved her after the first drop in. Urmi kept us updated with sweet pictures throughout her stay.”
“Ryan was awesome. She was able to take care of my senior dog when I left town for a long weekend. I rarely leave his side since I WFH, and I usually take him with me. She sent so many pictures where I could see my pup was happy, and that helped me feel comfortable knowing that he was in good hands. She stayed at my home, and it was cleaner than I had left it. After many tries, I finally found a fit for us, and I can’t wait to use her again!”
“Jackie is very sweet and patient and did a great job house sitting our puppy! She arrived on time and gave us updates. No complaints from us!”
“Sarah was a wonderful sitter. She stayed overnight in our home with our pup. She was great at communicating and making sure all of our pup’s needs were met. She left the house clean with barely a sign that she had been here… even cleared out our dishwasher. I would definitely recommend her.”
“Jessica was a wonderful dog sitter! She was attentive, responsive, and seemed to truly understand what our pups needed. She was a wonderful guest in our home and left the apartment cleaner than she found it! Thank you, Jessica!”
