Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Maja is a gem. She was responsive, communicative and a pleasure as a house sitter for my 2 year old lab. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others in need of quality pet care and house sitting.”
“This is our second time having Carolyn watch our cat Parsley and it’s so nice to be able to leave town confident that our girl is getting the best care! I love getting the photos of her looking so happy to be cuddled and adored– she obviously loves Carolyn. We also came home to our plants looking better than ever, a bonus since Carolyn is clearly a plant whisperer. We’ll definitely reach out again next time we head out of town!”
“Jana is one of the most loving, dedicated and responsible pet sitters I've seen. She truly treats your pets like they were her own. She handled my two VERY needy senior pets (16.5 year old lab, 18 year old cat) without any issues. I think they were disappointed when I came home and she left! Not only were my pets happy but my apartment was spotless when I came home. I would let her watch my crew any time!”
“Samantha is SO great with my young GSP! He has high energy and requires a thoughtful but direct approach. Samantha left jackson SO tired and we’ll loved plus during an overnight left my home clean and exactly how I left it. So thankful I found Samantha for my dog care - gives me great peace of mind to have good dependable care I trust for my pup!”
“Abby was amazing, kind, thoughtful and took great care of my older dog. She sent wonderful pictures and made sure I felt included while I was away. I would highly recommend and will be asking her to help in future trips- thank you”

“Kevin and Gabriela were easy to work with and schedule. They were prompt and worked well with my dog who's currently not in the best of health. They brought their dogs to play with my furball and to keep her company, which I greatly appreciated.”
“Talia is the best! She’s a kind and patient animal lover who took excellent care of our pup while house sitting for us. Daily walks, play, love, and she even taught her a new trick ? We knew Kuma was in great hands with Talia and she’ll be our go-to pet care from here on out!”
“We usually take our cat to the vet when on vacation, an experience that stresses all of us. When I learned a neighbor was starting a pet-care business, I thought I’d give it a try. Nora is warm, caring, and obviously has a love of animals. She explained her services clearly, and we walked her through feeding and medication he takes. She let us know she’d also spend time with him, came twice each day, and even took in our garbage cans, and packages left on porch. Each day we received a text with pictures of our very happy, purring cat. He rarely lets anyone hold or pet him, but Nora has a special touch! We returned to a happy and calm pet, not like his experience with the vet condo. I highly recommend Nora and have her on our calendar for our next vacation.”
“Can't say enough good things about Grace and the care she gave my elderly cat. She made the booking and meet & greet very convenient and quick, and was great at sending me text and photo updates while I was away. My place was super clean and tidy—like I'd never left it—when I returned and my cat was very content. It's hard leaving a pet for an extended period, especially one that needs so much specific care like mine, but Grace gave me the same peace of mind that Brown was in great hands and being looked over as I get when a close friend or family member watches her. Thank you, Grace!”
“I actually had Allie come sit my 12 week old puppy in my house (shés an experienced house sitter as well as a dog trainer), which was a great way to avoid the additional trauma of a strange location for his first weekend away from me. He got along really well with Allie and her daughter, and even got training during his care. Worked out great!”
“Cristal was the best! It was our first time using the rover app and my husband was a little skeptic. Cristal was super accommodating to our puppy’s needs. Astro loved her and he was very happy while we where away. We will definitely be hiring Cristal again in the near future.”
“Can’t say enough good things about Jessica. She was super kind, attentive and communicative which is all I could ask for. On top of that my boys loved her and the house was exactly how I left it. I would definitely recommend her and would happily rebook her in the future!”
“We hired Eden for a 3 day stay with our cat and dog. She kept up updated, took care of everyone and kept our place super clean. We will absolutely hire her again!”
“I'm so grateful for Omar's help in watching my anxious pup on a last minute notice! It looked like my husky had a lot of fun and was well taken care. Omar was pretty good about sending updates and pictures. Will def book again.”
“Theresa was amazing with our very shy dog. I’m always hesitant to leave her but she was in great hands as soon as I met Theresa. We can home to a very happy and calm dog and clean house. Looking forward to our next trip hoping Theresa will be available:)”
“Terry was incredibly accommodating, communicative, thoughtful and immediately bonded with our new rescue pup, Goose! He was very respectful of the house and made our time away an easy one because we never had to worry about the caliber of care our dog was receiving. Will hire again and recommend with no reservations!”
“Murphy absolutely loves Rachel!! She stayed with him over the weekend and it was amazing. She sent updates and pictures of Murphy everyday. I highly recommend Rachel to care for your furbabies!!”
“Thank you Madeleine for going above and beyond to make my nervous boy (and me!) comfortable. She handled his leash pulling and quirky personality flawlessly and he snuggled up to her first thing. Great experience.”
About: I've grown up all my life with furry friends: hamsters, chinchillas, parrots, rabbits, cats, and dogs. They truly add sweetness to my life. When I was a kid, I remember obsessively watching Animal Planet and reading all of my library book's about pet care and training. I was able to help train my dogs through advanced obedience classes, Canine Good Citizen test, and therapy dog training through positive reinforcement, mental enrichment, trust building, and having fun! My bonds with them have been some of the most fulfilling parts of my life. I've raised my pets throughout all their life stages, as well as helping care for friends' and neighbors' pets, all of a variety of sizes, ages, breeds, temperaments, and special needs. I'd love the privilege to do the same for you. My dog Pearl is my cherished adventure buddy all across the PNW, but I too have trips I cannot take her on. I understand the stress and worry of finding care for your furry friends when those events arise, and I will strive the best I can to ease your and your pet's worries with quality care and communication, and treat them as I'd want mine to be treated. "In Hawaiian, you don't call yourself your pet's owner. You are their kahu. Kahu has many meanings, among them: guardian, protector, steward, beloved attendant—basically, someone entrusted with the safekeeping of something precious, something cherished. What a Kahu protects is not their property. What they protect is a part of their soul." I'm currently on a break from full-time work and school, so I have a lot of time and love to give! I do part-time contract work completely remotely from home, so I can be home a lot during the day to keep your pet company and give frequent walks, potty breaks, and playtime. There will just be brief times they would need to be alone if I need to go out to run errands. In that case, I request that your dog is crate trained, primarily for their safety for the brief time that I can't supervise them. I can also accommodate for very early or late drop-off and pickup times. My apartment is dog-proofed with all safety precautions considered. All possible escape routes are blocked off. Dogs will only be leashed when let out and followed their prescribed routine and given their specified food. I only take one client at a time, so your dog(s) will have my full individualized attention. Pearl is very sweet and mild-mannered, but I'll always supervise all dogs' interactions together. I send daily photo updates about your dog's activities and well-being, and am available by phone/text/app messaging any time. I reside between Redmond, Bellevue, and Kirkland in a very safe gated complex. Your dog will love the park-like setting of the complex with a long walking trail surrounded by beautiful flowering greenery and a pond. They will not be taken out of the complex (e.g. to a dog park) due to the risks involved.
“Lily took the time to note every little detail about our two pups and really did care about their wellbeing while we were away. She also kept our home very tidy. It is very hard for me to trust my fur kids with someone else (even my own mom!), but Lily was fantastic with them and it feels great knowing we have found a perfect sitter for them.”
