Andrew is an amazing dog sitter! He stayed at our home for two weeks while we were on vacation and looked after our 2 dogs. He was amazing, he texted us daily updates with pictures and even found a fenced area to play fetch with my mini aussie as he is high energy. Followed the care instructions for my yorkie who just had surgery. He definitely went above and beyond and I 100% recommend him!

Renee has now sat for our two labs in our home several times, and each time provides excellent communication (including photos) about the dogs or anything that may be happening in the house. We return to a clean home, happy pets and it has made returning from going away so much easier. Highly recommend.

Elizabeth was the best! She sent us a ton of pictures and kept us in the loop the whole weekend. I was so nervous to have someone new stay with our two big, energetic dogs, but she was just wonderful. She did everything we asked, followed our pups’ routines + extra walks, and was just so good with them. We will 100% ask for Elizabeth next time we’re out of town!

Shannon watched our 7 yo dog and 11 yo cat for 9 nights in our home while we were away. It’s nerve-racking to leave yours pets and home in the care of someone you don’t really know, but Shannon made it easy. She was super communicative, conscientious, and treated our pets and home as if they were her own. Honestly, I think our pets enjoyed their own little vacation getting even more walks, adventures, cuddles, and attention with Shannon than they do when sharing their time with our toddler! Shannon’s background working in vet offices was also helpful in making suggestions for behaviors she noticed from our pets, which was an added bonus. I’d absolutely hire Shannon again and would recommend her to anyone else looking for a friendly, respectful, trustworthy house- and pet-sitter.

Because this is the 2nd time we’ve booked with Bethany to take care of our two boys, we were completely at ease leaving for our vacation as Bethany did such a good job taking care of them the first time! Once again, we came home to two happy boyos and a clean apartment :) thanks again Bethany!

About: I have over 15 years of personal and professional experience with animals. Growing up, my family fostered and found forever homes for several dogs and cats. I began pet sitting as a teenager and later started a freelance business, building a small but loyal clientele. Loving and caring for animals is a passion of mine. Each animal is different, with their own distinct traits, and knowing how to handle them attentively is essential as a caregiver. I've worked at animal hospitals and kennels where I worked closely and carefully with all types of animals. I have expertise in handling multiple dogs at once and providing each one with the companionship and exercise that they need to feel healthy and happy. I also have a history of happy customers because of my passion for animals and my knowledge of dog handling, training, and basic health. When your pet is under my care, I give them the companionship, love and exercise that they need to feel healthy and happy.

Angela was fantastic! My boys loved hanging out with her for the weekend while we were out of town. She was super communicative and sent lots of pictures. My boys felt very comfortable with her and she took wonderful care of them. She was great with giving my elderly dog his medication and helping him get up and around the house. Angela is extremely responsible and respectful and we would book her again in a second! I would highly recommend her to pet sit for your furry family members!

Nathan is an incredibly loving and kind individual when it comes to people and pets. He has had mostly dogs but has also been around cats and they all tend to love him or warm up to him. He is attentive to the individual needs of others and is very communicative if he thinks there may be something off. He cares for how you care for your animal as if it were his own and understands every pet is an individual. I have trusted Nathan with the care of my various pets over the years and have never been let down by him.

Dave was a great host for our two pets Mocha and Ezzy while we were out of town! We were worried about sitting since it was in between the holidays but couldn't have found a better host. He was very communicative with us and we felt comfortable and "worry-free" with him and our pets!! We would have him here again for sure in the future. Thank you Dave!

Kelly accepted with short notice due to a cancellation. She was flexible to make a greet and meet. She kept Mia safe and happy during a week stay. The house was very clean and gave me great comfort while on vacation. I am used to some updates and a couple of pictures based on my previous experiences. But I did request them either.
