Jaden was very nice and easy to work with. He was very quick to respond. He sent pictures during the couple hour day care. Winston was happy when we came back. Will use Jaden again.

She cares about animals deeply and goes above and beyond for any animal/s in her possession. No matter if they are hers or someone else's. She is one person i would personally trust to leave my pet with and not have to worry about them. You couldn't pick a better person to babysit or walk your dog or any animal at that.

Ky has watched my dog several times throughout the years. She recently joined Rover, but I couldn't recommend her enough. She is very kind and attentive towards my dog, and my dog warmed up to her very quickly. She also has great communication and provides updates on how the stay is going. You can tell she loves doing her job.

Ali is THE only pet sitter we ever use. Two cats AND two large dogs to stress about while we're out of town is a lot but there are ZERO worries when I have Ali taking care of them. She's great about communicating if she has any questions. She always pays close attention to the instructions we leave and doesn't mind going "out of her way" to hang out for some cat cuddles and a dog pile! Highly recommend her for any stressed pet parents planning a get-away!

About: I have lived with dogs 20+ years of my life. My partner, Anthony, and I currently have 2 dogs of our own who are both rescues. Arthur is our 6 year old playful, loving lab mix and Taz is our 4 month old sassy pit mix puppy! We love caring for pets and are excited to spread the love to more doggy friends! You can count on us to be reliable, respectful, engaged, and loving to your pets. We will ensure that they get exercise and the love they need while under our care. We will make sure the environment is safe for all pets and make sure your pet has access to food and water at all times. We work from home full time and will make sure your pet has the necessary potty breaks they need and will not be left in a kennel all day long. We love dogs and are excited to provide a safe + comfortable place for your pet so you can enjoy your time away from home knowing your dog(s) is/are in good hands. Anthony and I work from home, which makes pet care fit very easily into our daily and weekly routine. We have 2 dogs of our own and we never leave them home alone longer than 4 hours. We have a partially fenced in yard. The yard is safe and a great size to give your pet ample space to run around and exercise.

I needed a sitter short notice and Heather was very helpful in accommodating my schedule. Jimmy was happy and healthy when I picked him up. If I'm ever in Des Moines again I'll definitely rebook!

About: I’m the friend that’s relied on for training support. Puppy, Senior citizen, separation anxiety to adoptee experience; 10+ years. I’m passionate about learning new training techniques, implementing, and teaching. Every dog and companion deserves to understand each other. I have a 3 year old xl breed. Every day we focus on consistency and communication. I personally focus on the individual needs specific to my companions for the best life experience. From avid exercise to slow paced walks to muscle and joint massage and even reinforcing habits that create healthy confidence. I love paying attention to body language and understanding what it means for a companion as well as the companion’s caretaker and being able to provide comfort and training techniques based off of that. I can’t wait to be a certified dog trainer and help people understand there’s no such thing as a bad or impossible breed. It’s all about understanding, communication, implementation, and consistency. My goal is to keep your companions day as regular and consistent as possible. We will be on time for walks, they will get a lot of attention, I love animal body language so I’ll be able to build a connection with your companion based on their comfortability level, and I prefer to go by your rules. I understand no dogs on couches and I also fully support couch cuddles. It’s all about your companions happiness and well being along with providing ease and comfort for you and I will make sure to provide everything you need to maintain that. I chose a neighborhood great for king walks and close to downtown for easy access to greys lake. apartment that offered a dog park for comfortable potty breaks. And being right next to greys lake offers great adventures. I can crate if required, as I crate my 2 yr old for his safety. I encourage as many “rules” and your guidance to abide by to make your companions day to day as regular and enjoyable as possible. This is all about you guys and making your lives easy and comfortable.

About: I have raised dogs, cats, bunnies, horses, and chickens my entire life. I currently have a Pug and a Boston Terrier, both puppies. I work from home and can provide day care, over nights, walks, pop-ins, etc. I am right down the street from Gateway so if you need a place to drop your animal off on your way to work downtown, I make a convenient drop off location. Very flexible with times. Air conditioning inside, large fully fenced backyard, and walks daily. 24/7 availability for pet care so long as we communicate in advance. I work from home and can be available based on your needs. I am available for drop off and pick up any time. There are a few times throughout the day where I will be driving my kids to and from events. We can communicate and work around those times. I also have a keypad. Animals are watched closely in the home and kept inside the fence in the backyard under supervision. When on walks animals are always on leash and are one on one with me. Separate food and water bowls are used. My yard is cleared of excrement daily. All animals must be up to date with shots and worming and flea/tick prevention.

This was our first meeting with Alex. We got to know her a bit, and she spent quality time with Jake. She's on time and on top of everything. We (and that includes Jake) are looking forward to having her take care of Jake in the coming months.
