Carissa is AMAZING! Our pup is super shy and anxious and Carissa handles it no problem! She is super timely and very communicative- couldn’t ask for a better sitter!

Carissa has been helping out with our sick senior dog, and she's been great! Super flexible and he seems to love her. Thanks!

Carissa did a great job taking care of my dog while I was on a business trip. My dog is elderly and she got sick while I was away. Carissa handles everything and kept me up to date with texts and photos. Everything was under control when I got home, and my dog was happy. It was a great relief to know Carissa was keeping an eye on everything.

What Carissa would like to know about your dog

I like to know their temperament, how they are with strangers and other dogs. I like to know their favorite toys and treats and their normal routine. I also want to know what you expect from the stay, how many updates you would like and if there is anything you would like me to work on your dog with.
