Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Christine was a fantastic sitter that anyone would be lucky to have take care of their pets. She was communicative, shared lots of photos, and was accommodating with some last minute booking changes. We have one cat and one dog, and both were safe in her care. When we returned home the house was clean and the animals were happy!”
Kerry Rose H.
“Kerry went above and beyond when housesitting for my Lab Tina and cat Oskar. She came to pick up my keys before my early morning trip to the airport even though I offered to bring them to her. I only asked her to strip the bed before she left but she went a step above and made the bed with fresh linens. My pets loved her and she sent pics and update. I think she's amazing and I would love to her back in the future if she's interested and available. Such a relief to find someone so compassionate and kind. Can't recommend her enough.”
“Jornelle watched our dog and house for two weeks while we were out of the country. She did a great job taking care of our dog and our house. She was extremely communicative with us and even cared enough to take our dog to her family’s Thanksgiving (after consulting with us) so our dog wouldn’t be left alone for too long. Would recommend!”
“Mariana is an amazing pet sitter, she loves animals and has a great disposition with them. She keeps them active and loved. They absolutely enjoy hanging out with her. I’d definitely recommend her to watch any pet.”
“Sonja was absolutely fantastic! Super communicative, kept me updated on everything with my kitties. Constant pictures and updates. Will absolutely book her again! Strongly recommend!”
“Dropped off my husky and he really went above and beyond when taking care of my baby, he made sure to keep me updated during the day.”
“Mia was very communicative and attentive to my pets needs. I felt completely comfortable leaving my dog in her care and inviting her into my home. I will definitely be using Mia’s services again!”
Brandon & Armani B.
“Brandon did wonderfully with Gizmo, who isn't always the easiest dog. We'd happily ask him to watch Gizmo again.”
“Ashley is eveything you’d want in a host. She is responsive, communicative, and super easy to work with. While I was away I felt uneasy leaving my pet behind, but when Ashley took care of my dog she would send me daily updates and photos of my pet. When I got back home I could tell my dog was loved and cared for and he definitely had fun! I will be requesting Ashley again.”
“Ollie is very responsible. She comes on time, is respectful to my roommates, and most importantly, my dog loves her. I use her all the time! Chip agrees.”
“Corrine would make an amazing candidate for this position she has the biggest heart for any animal they could be on the street or in Corrine’s arms and she would give them so much attention and love. Corrine is the friendliest person I’ve met she always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude”
About: I have been dog sitting since as long as I can remember. My family have been boarding dogs for years so I'm very comfortable around pets. I also have an 11 year old chihuahua who loves blankets and sleeping all day. Over the years I've gotten to understand different pet moods and behaviors. I take a more relaxed approach, which allows the pets to slowly warm up to me, rather than barging in on their personal space. Looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies! I work remotely, so my schedule is very flexible. I usually take my dog for a walk in the morning and then a couple times during the day so I have no problem bringing other dogs out regularly. My Chihuahua is neutered, so unspayed females won't be a problem. He also has his own play pen where he prefers to stay during the day. Dogs are allowed in the couch if the owners are comfortable, and crates are welcomed, especially if your dog isn't peeped trained. I would also encourage bringing a cage (if you have one) for the initial boarding to ensure your pet has a safe space.
“Aaliyah was great with our Liz! This walker is reliable and punctual, they take her for long walks, play with her in the park, and send me adorable photos throughout the day. My dog comes back happy and tired every time they walk her, and I can tell she's been getting the exercise and socializing she needs.”
“Elizabeth is an amazing doggie mommy. She has one of the best trained puppies I’ve ever seen. She's watched my adult and puppy German Shepards on many occasions, and I’d always trust her to do it again. With a caring attention to detail that dog owners will appreciate, Elizabeth is a perfect choice.”
“Second time with Karen watching my weird and at times, annoying, little guy. She is so good with him and it makes me feel so much better knowing that he is taken care of! We're big fans of Karen over here!”
“to whoever this may concern, i’m writing regarding olivia parisi’s rover application. i think she will be a good fit for this job because she is responsible, patient, and has a strong love for animals. i have a puppy and she is very temperamental at times and olivia handles her with grace and care.”
“She is Such a great animal care taker. You have nothing to worry about because she will do everything to keep your fur baby happy”
About: I have a roomy boarding house, with a backyard in a nice area for walks and hikes. I am good with energetic dogs and understand entrusting your pet to a sitter is a big deal. I am at home all day currently, I am young and love animals and can assure that your pets get the love and attention they deserve! I do have a large crate I can set up, but no additional pets at home. My backyard is fenced and I have a 2 story plus basement home. I would appreciate if you can supply your dogs emotional support toys, bed and or care supplies for their stay to make the acclimation as easy as possible.
About: I have taken care of dogs since I had one about 5 years ago. I love pets. People say that I treat pets very well, as if they were family. I am currently working part time but if one day you need me to take care of your pet full day I could do it depending on the day. I have enough space for your fur baby. I will treat him or her like a queen or king and will be very entertained !
