Gretchen was incredibly dependable and loving with our dogs. She updated us daily with pictures. We are extremely happy and we’ll be using her again. I would highly recommend her.

Gretchen had a successful pet sitting business where she was in grad school. She had many repeat customers. She gives 110% to every endeavor in her life. Her dog is the most well behaved dog I have ever met. She is very passionate about animals.

What Gretchen would like to know about your dog
