Caroline is amazing, and we are so happy to have found her! She was quick to respond, communicative, and very patient with my sweet corgi girl (who had some accidents early on in the stay). She sent pictures and videos everyday and let me know what was going on without requiring too much of my attention while I was away. She was also a lifesaver and stayed an extra night at the last minute when my flight was cancelled due to weather. Highly recommend!

Reliable, attentive, and with a true passion for animals, Sherin exceeded our expectations. Our dog seemed content and well-cared-for throughout their stay. We highly recommend Sherin for anyone seeking a trustworthy and caring companion for their beloved pets.

Sophia was amazing staying at our place with our 2 dogs and cat. Everyone was well taken care of, especially our dog that requires epilepsy pills 3x per day. And she left the place so clean you wouldn’t have known anybody had stayed there. Will 100% be using her services again, couldn’t be happier.

Rebecca was the BEST! She stayed in our apartment for 8 nights with our 10 year old cat and 5 year old recently adopted rescue dog. Our dog is still getting adjusted to city living and to the cat, who she is afraid of, even though she is a strong 50 lb dog! Rebecca handled the thunder scare with our dog really well and spent a lot of time making sure that she was comfortable. She communicated with us every day about how the pets were doing and sent pictures. Also, we came home to our apartment exactly as we left it. We will be definitely booking Rebecca again for future vacations.

Absolutely would recommend Tosha for all dog sitting needs. She made time to meet ahead of time and took great care to understand Lady’s needs and preferences. She was very responsive and gave daily updates and photos throughout her time caring for Lady. She left my apartment is perfect condition and I came home to a very happy pup.

Christina was fantastic! She gave thorough pupdates and included photos. I never had any moment of worry while I was away. My big guy was definitely happy while she was with him. She’s super respectful of homes and a genuinely kind person. Definitely book with her if you’re looking for someone to sit your pet.

Sarah was great! She housesat for us & took wonderful care of our Sadie & our fish while we were away for 6 days. Sarah has a great attitude & thoroughness, in addition to good & quick communication. Sadie took to her right away. We came home to a happy, relaxed pup who pulled even less on the leash since Sarah was so diligent with keeping up her training. I highly recommend booking Sarah—I will def book her again!

I would 100% recommended Lisauri. She’s great with my dog who typically is wary around strangers. She is patient kind and completely reliable. I’m so happy to have found her she is always professional and punctual. She goes over and beyond her duties. She keeps me updated so I always know what’s going on my baby. Thank you Lisauri for all you do.
