Thank you so much again Melissa! You are so great with Puddle and it’s such a comfort to get your updates and see how much he adores your visits. I’ve had to travel back home a lot since my mom passed away and your help these last couple months has been invaluable. Thank you for being so attentive and kind! -Allegra and Vanja

About: I have lots of experience with animals, from working at humane societies to later as a vet tech. I have always had a dog of my own and more recently adopted two cats. I currently work for a public school and soon will be on summer break. I am looking for small jobs that I can do while off work from my primary job. I will follow explicit instructions on how you want your critters to be cared for. I will make sure they are safe and comfortable by ensuring that they have everything they need such as any food or water left out for them.

Jacey is the best! She is so knowledgeable about animals and I don’t think she has ever met a dog that didn’t love her! I would trust her with my furry children impeccably.

Dani is reliable, flexible, and willing to rise above in emergencies. While my doggy tried an escape stunt during his last walk, Dani calmly and instinctively called me right away to ask how to best handle the situation. She continued to search for him with the assistance of friends she had called. Due to our good communication and her swift actions, my dog was safely back in the house in about half an hour! The peace of mind that gave me so quickly is something I will always be grateful for. The situation easily could have had a bad ending. I'll continue to book with Dani for my pet's needs. ??

About: My home is near many trails and outdoor recreation spots. I have local references for house sitting. I can accommodate dogs of all life stages as well as dogs with special needs or diets. I would be happy to send you photos of your dog during their stay. If you would like housesitting- I am also a housekeeper. I charge an hourly rate to clean and can provide references if there are any chores you would like me to handle while you are away. My schedule is somewhat flexible. I can accommodate pick up or drop off for an additional fee. Let me know your situation and I can work with you. I have a fenced area with rock landscaping. I will treat your pet like my own and give them the attention and care they deserve.

Debra has been a friend and house and dog-sitter for me for a number of years. She is THE BEST!! She is totally responsible and caring and Remy (my pup) loves her. After she house/dog sits when I've been away, when I return and she leaves, Remy runs into the guest bedroom every morning to look for her for days.

Christopher was incredibly well received by our fur babies to start with, which is always the most important thing for me when someone is stepping in for me during an absence. I will say that this is the first time that they have been left with anyone outside of my immediate family and I had no problems outside of me being incredibly nervous. Not only was he received well by all of the animals, but he also provided frequent check-ins and pictures, and went as far as to provide tips based on his own observations in interacting with them. I had no question that he was treating them as if they were his own, so thank you Christopher! I will definitely be looking out for his availability for future pet-sitting needs!

About: I’ve taken care of dogs, cats and other pets since I was young. Friends, neighbors and family members have trusted me to take care of their furry friends many times. I love dogs and cats the most and would absolutely adore spending time with yours! I’m a college student and would love the extra money to pay towards my student fees. Every day I miss the furry friends I had to leave at home and would love to spend some time with yours! I make it my upmost priority to make sure all pets are safe and engaged. I have no problem following any protocols you normally practice in your home, whatever makes your pets the most comfortable!

About: I fostered kittens when I was in high school and have since worked as a vet tech assistant and a kennel attendant. I have also been a pet sitter on and off throughout that time (at least 10 years). At my jobs, I have learned how to medicate animals, bottle feed kittens, understand dog and cat body language and much more. I am a zoology student with an interest in animal behavior. I have 2 cats and have had dogs, a hamster and guinea pigs. I would love to care for and get to know any species of pet! I am available any day of the week for house sitting and visits. Unfortunately I’m not available for morning visits. I will consider boarding for animals that can get along with my 2 cats (no cats or dogs who aren’t the best at boundaries). I will follow your instructions carefully and reach out if I need to make any unexpected decisions. I want to make you feel confident that your pet is being cared for in just the way you want so you don’t have to worry at all while you are away. At the same time I have a passion for animal behavior and, should the need arise, love finding creative solutions to problem behaviors that works with the pet’s wants and needs instead of against them. I like sharing pictures and updates if that is something you want. :)

About: I’ve been dogsitting every summer for 3 years and absolutely adore meeting new furry friends! I’ve had pets all my life and have experience caring for dogs, cats, fish, chickens, guinea pigs, hamsters, small birds, and reptiles. I am also a pet portrait artist so if you would like to commission a painting of your furry friend I would love to paint them! I’m currently attending school full time but have various breaks in between classes where I'd be more then happy to stop by and check on your pet(s), additionally, I'm out of class every day by 5pm so I'm nearly always available for evening check ins. I'm free anytime on the weekends and can care for your pet(s) anytime you need. If you have any questions about availability I'd be happy to answer them. When caring for pets, I will always insure their safety and comfort. Whether staying overnight with a pet or just checking in on them, I always look for any signs of discomfort, check that they have access to water, and make sure to play with them so that they can get some energy out.

We have three dogs who are always excited to see her. Bree fed, walked, bathed them and played with the dogs before she went off to college. Bree had two guinea pigs and a hamster of her own. One guinea pig had many problems, and I watched her literally go out of her way to make him feel comfortable when he was sick, and did whatever was necessary. Bree truly cares about animals and their well-being. I would trust her to come in my home and care for my animals. She understands animals and their needs. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a pet sitter. Bree is a wonderful person who has a big heart when it comes to any animal and it shows.

AmMathee is very reliable and trustworthy. She cares for my dog as if she’s her own pet. She knows how to comfort a pet that has anxiety when their owner is away, and has experience with dogs that need a little more attention such as medication, and mobility issues. I love that she sends me updates and photos if I request them.
