Krista is the absolute best! She has watched my cat multiple times and now also started watching my new dog. She takes great care of them and sends the best pictures after her visit. She’s very dedicated and even came during the most recent snow storm. If you are thinking of someone to watch after your pets, I very highly recommend Krista!

Krista was great! She was extremely timely with answering all messages and sent great photos of my cat while I was gone. I highly recommend her for any pet sitting needs :)

We were only able to have her stop by once or twice but Krista was absolutely amazing! I have a high-anxiety pup and she took her time to greet him and even understood when he panicked the first day. My other dog is a total angel so she took to Krista like no ones business. I would recommend her for anyone!

When Krista watches your pet

If a dog is high energy and the owner would prefer I walk them somewhere besides around their neighborhood I would be thrilled to bring them to the park or the beach! I can also bring dogs to and from the groomer or vet. I would absolutely play fetch and other games with a dog when going on home visits.
