“Lana cared for my dog Goose on multiple occasions. She’s taken him on long walks and to the dog park for me. She watches him when I am out of town on business and I don’t have to worry for a second that he is not cared for just as much I would care for him. She’s the best!”
“I am so glad I found Pam! She is super sweet and I felt very comfortable allowing Pam access to our home. She was kind enough to fill the water bowls and offered any kind of help, since she lives close by. Ela seems very relaxed when I get home and I’m sure she enjoys and appreciates the walks tremendously.”
“Thank you for taking care of my fur baby!!”
“Hannah went out of her way to care for our animals every time she watched them. She has a love for all animals and is the perfect pet sitter for our family!”
“Thank you MacKenzie for loving on my fur baby at last minute notice. I really appreciate it!!”

About: Hello! My name is Aimee. I currently live in Indian Harbour beach. I was born and raised here. I have a cat and a mini dachshund that are my babies of course! They all get along well with others. I am well rounded with having to give medicine, feeding times, and care of older and/or dogs with any issues or concerns they may have. I feel that I am trustworthy, dependable and very caring. I enjoy taking them on walks or just someone to snuggle with! If overnights are needed, I can do that as well. I am here for whatever they may need! When I am not loving on animals, I have been a dental assistant for over 13 years, and now in the Wellness/Fitness industry. Payments are due at time of services I have my own business, I sometimes may be in and out however, I am able to give frequent potty breaks. If there is a time that takes longer, I will inform you My little doggy is very sweet, I can always crate either dog if need be at my place. They all get equal loving and play time. If they need to be walked separately we can. Love yard play, pool time and snuggles I work part time and for myself! I have plenty of time to play with your pups or kitties! I am available for overnights, and day time visits I currently do not offer this service, as I have my own pets and do not want to disturb their own comfort. My cat is an only one person type cat.
“Alex is great! We have used her for house sitting and walks and she has been super responsive and reliable every time. I highly suggest her if you need someone to watch your pups!”
“Emily is and always has been an immaculate and trustworthy pet caretaker and housesitter! I’ve left my cats with her numerous times to go on trips and have 0 complaints. She is kind, loving, and has the warmest energy. She will always treat and love your animals as though they are her own, and she’s extremely well-researched on things like pet nutrition and behavior. I would never choose to leave my animals with anyone else in the world if i could help it ❤️ If you want to leave your pets in the hands of someone that will take care of them not only to your standards, but go above and beyond, then do yourself a favor and book Emily!”
“I have known Denise for over 12 years I know her primary concern is the health and welfare of all animals. She grew up on a horse farm and has owned and cared for horses, dogs, and cats all her life. Denise even received a cockatiel on her 11th birthday, which lived for 34 years. She has also fostered a dog and bird while the owner was going to school. I believe Denise will be a loving and experienced caretaker for your pets.”
“Hailey was great with my dog, Drax! She was very communicative and sent the best pictures everyday! Would definitely recommend her and book again in the future!”
“I have been so pleased with the experiences I've had with Elaine watching my elderly lab and my cat over the past several years. Honestly, she spoils them rotten and treats them as her own. I never worry a second about them when they are in her care.”
“Sydney is fantastic! She took care of our dog for a weekend, Sydney was timely, reliable, friendly, and communicative with us when we checked in. Our dog loved cuddling with her and going on walks. I highly recommend Sydney for dog sitting!”
About: Hi! I'm Katie. I am a Certified Vet Tech who can't wait to meet your fur babies! I have always been an animal lover and have taken care of many pets for friends and family over the years. This is why I went to school to become a Veterinary Technician. I graduated from Vet Tech school in 2015 and obtained my board certification in 2016. I have been working with dogs and cats in small animal practices for 8 years. During this time I have gained experience and knowledge about animals with many different medical and behavioral needs. I am comfortable medicating and taking care of your little ones who require special attention. I am happy to help with any of your pets who may be fearful of new people or situations. I understand that our pets are our family and your pets safety and comfort will always be my number one priority. I am currently a stay-at-home mom with two kindergarteners. My availability is during the hours they are in school, from 8:00am - 2pm Monday-Thursday, and 8:00am -1pm on Fridays. I am willing to be flexible and would be happy to work with your schedule to fit you and your pet's needs. I have two dogs and two kitties of my own, so I understand the importance of having their needs met while you are away. I can visit and provide play time, feeding, medicating, bathing & nail trims, scooping litter boxes and walks. If your dogs need to spend the day here with me, I have a fenced in back yard and two very friendly Boston Terriers to keep them company. I can't wait to meet you and your furry friends!
“Andrea is the most compassionate and loving person I know. She has dog-sat for me in the past (I have 3 pups) and they absolutely adore her. If you AND your puppers are looking for a bestie? Look no further!”
About: Since childhood, I've been really passionate about animals. I grew up with several dogs and a lizard in my family. I started pet sitting at 9, and have cared for a wide range of animals including cats, chickens, and rabbits for relatives and friends. My experience extends to volunteering at local animal shelters, making me comfortable and skilled in handling pets with diverse personalities. I'm a student with a flexible schedule. I'm available most evenings(all except for Thursdays at the moment), Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and all day on weekends. I can easily work around my classes and am skilled at time management. As a consistent straight-A student, I'm confident that school won't interfere with my commitment to providing exceptional pet care. Every pet is wonderfully unique and special, and so I understand how important it is to meet every one of their specific needs. As an adoring and protective dog owner myself, I completley empathize with all and any of your concerns (trust me I get it). I promise to treat your pets as if they were my very own, while following special instructions or routines you may provide. My goal is always to exceed your expectations in caring for your beloved pet, so you can be rest assured they are in very good hands.
“I had the pleasure of giving Javier my very much loved dog, and I am really happy with the outcome. Javier is a truly kind and sympathetic person in addition to being a trustworthy and accountable pet caretaker. I could see he had a great love for animals the moment I met him. Javier showed an amazing level of detail-orientedness and dedication to my pet's wellbeing. In order to make sure my pet felt secure and at ease in his care, he went above and above what I had asked. I received frequent updates with pictures and messages, which gave me comfort while I was away from home. Javier clearly has a natural affinity for animals, and my pet felt at rest right away because of his loving and caring nature. If someone is searching for a reliable and kind pet sitter, I would heartily suggest Javier. With him, any family pet will be in very good hands!”
“Polite and reliable. Thank you Blaire for checking on Ruby.”
About: I have been watching cats and dogs since I have had my cat Garfield at age 7. For the past 10 years I have taken gigs here and there watching pets of friends and family. I do have a 9-5 job from Monday -Friday, and my weekends are usually free. I will be able to stop by and check on your fur baby/babies after work at 5:30pm most days. I have an older cat I feed medication through a pill gun, and have injected insulin in pets as well. I have a decent amount of experience working with cats needs, as well as dog walking and sitting.
