“Mona did such a wonderful job with our dog while we were gone. She wrote to us every day and sent pictures twice daily. She is positive, very reliable, professional and fun. We returned to a young dog who was calm, secure and well cared for after the longest stretch she had experienced away from her family ever. That is such a wonderful compliment to Mona's care and caring and we thank her so much.”
“Richard was amazing with my cat, I was able to relax during my vacation knowing that my cat was in great hands. Richard sent me plenty of pictures, he left my place better than he found it and even gave my cat some medications he needed. My cat doesn’t like strangers, but he liked Richard.”
“We had to leave our cat for the first time ever and were nervous to do so until we met Mallory. She was super friendly, communicative and really cared about our fur baby as if she was her own. She gave us updates every time she checked in and sent pictures any chance she could. Mallory went above and beyond, bringing in packages from the front porch and even brought our empty garbage cans back from the curb while we were away. Couldn’t have asked for someone better to care for our girl. Will absolutely be calling her anytime we need someone to check in on our cat and we couldn’t recommend her more!”
“Jennifer was very attentive to my pets and made sure to let me know how they were doing. I appreciate the help, Jennifer!”
About: I started dog sitting for family & friends after the pandemic was over & everyone started to go on vacations & work trips again. I loved getting to visit their furry friends as well as walk & play with them. Over the past few years I’ve began house sitting for friends of friends & it’s been such a treat to meet all types of four legged friends. Being a student athlete I’m always on the go, back & forth between all sides of town. The gym, campus, & my home. Checking in on/walking/feeding dogs is a welcome break in the monotony of a typical day. I will typically do a let out/walk first thing in the morning, another after classes around 2, & then be home around 6 for the rest of the night. When caring for pets, I make sure to thoroughly read all instructions left by the owners and follow through with them. Pets will always be watched when outside & walked attentively
“It has been a pleasure having Giao care for my dog, Aeriel. I can travel and have confidence in knowing that she is in great hands. Giao treats Aeriel as if she were her own. Aeriel adores her and that means everything to me when I leave town. I could tell the first time she watched my dog that she truly loves animals. Everytime Giao has watched Aeriel since then, my dog gets excited to see her, like she is my dogs long lost friend. I would say it's easy to take care of a dog, but my dog is deaf and dog aggressive so I had a long list of do's and do not's. Giao followed my long list and was able to take care of Aeriel exactly how I wanted. She fed her, exercised her, played with her, and even gave her love by snuggling Aeriel. That is everything I wanted and more. If you are debating on someone to watch your dog, choose Giao!”
“Monica is one of, if not, the best caregivers I have ever used for my pets. I have a dog and cat, with the dog being pretty scared of the world, which makes finding the right caregiver a little challenging. Finding someone to watch her always gives me anxiety since I worry about both my dog and the person watching her and the trouble they may face (such as my dog not eating or wanting to go outside since she gets scared of new humans). With Monica, she assured me she would take great care of both animals and upon meeting them, I could tell instantly she would go above and beyond to make sure they were loved and taken care of. I received plenty of check-in texts and photos which made being away a little easier! PLUS - my dog actually went on walks with her, which was the biggest win! Monica was also willing to stay over to keep the animals company, which I absolutely loved and appreciated more than she will ever know. If you want someone who is passionate about animals, look no further than Monica! She is truly the best.”
“Kyler was the first person we have used in the last several times with Rover who actually followed the directions we left. He was experienced with training and did a good job with our pets and even went above and beyond in the household. We appreciated the updates and photos.”

“Shernee is always so great with Junior! We are happy to use her every time she is available!”
“Korie was great! Loved all the video and picture updates!”
About: I have many years of experience taking care of all animals. I grew up with cats and dogs, I am a cat & dog foster, and still have a household full of animals. I am a single mom, so my 6 year old child will be with me for housesitting gigs. She has been around animals since she was born, as we have fostered her entire life (both cats & dogs), so she is familiar with how to behave around your fur babies and loves them all as much as I do. I am a massage therapist 20 hours/week and I am studying to take my boards (after finishing my masters program for acupuncture), so I am very flexible. I usually only work 6 hour shifts, so your babies won't be left alone for long stretches of time. . I will follow your guidelines to a "T". Your fur babies will receive all the love, cuddles, and attention you want and I will be sure to follow eating/walking schedules to make sure your fur babies stay happy and healthy while you are away. As a foster, I have handled pet emergencies and I am able to keep a clear head and communicate with your vet if necessary.
“Cathy gave me one of her dogs puppies and I drop him off often to play with her puppy and mom. I would trust her with any animal in her care! She loves her dogs, cats and has put me on her horse to teach me riding basics. Very attentive and dedicated to the animals, highly recommend.”
“Don is a great caregiver for fur babies! He is knowledgeable and caring. He gives extra attention and is very reliable. My cats love him, even my crazy cat with anxiety. I have used pet sitters that don’t show up on schedule or speed feed, but Don makes sure the cats are emotionally cared for as well.”
“Blake helps me with dogsitting when I’m out of town; he takes the time to understand the individual personality and tendencies of my dog, and I can tell she feels comfortable with him. He’s considerate of the things she doesn’t like and is very gentle with her.”
About: I have taken care of my own pets for numerous years. Family friends and family have relied on me to watch their animals as well. I have a 2 yr old and and infant. They love animals. We love to take daily walks. I am home during the week daily. We have a fenced in backyard. We have a fenced in backyard as well as a closed in patio. I will make sure to keep dogs on a leash if not in the fenced area outside.
About: I have taken care of dogs and cats for 2 years. I have experience at a pet lodge and am well equipped to handle anything. I’m currently a part-time student and part-time worker and pet sitter. Pet care fits perfectly with my schedule because I am home most days of the week. I live in a big apartment with plenty of space. I am crate free and cage free. I have a divider that can keep pets separated as needed. Pets are allowed on the furniture and beds. I walk dogs regularly and can follow any and all instructions from the owner.
“Lois did a great job of following instructions and communicating with us. I had no concerns and I'd definitely use her again!”
“I had Amanda drop by my house to take care of Dixie while we were out all day. She gave her a walk, took her out in the backyard and made sure she had fresh water. She sent photos and let me know how Dixie was doing. Thanks, Amanda!!”
“Maddie was great! She was very communicative and reliable. Would recommend her.”
“We love Makala so much!! She works around my crazy work schedule to make sure Charlie is checked on. And his very spoiled self gets treated just like he would if we were there with him. Treats hugs and loves!”
