Our experience with Li was fantastic! From the time we met Li, she was great with both of our dogs. Our dogs immediately warmed up to Li and were so calm when she entered our home for the first time. We had never had a pet-sitter come to our home before while we were on a long trip, so we were a little nervous on how the dogs would react. Our dogs were so happy ...

I have used Li multiply times for house sitting and she has been absolutely wonderful. I have two small dogs that love her and that is a huge complement. She is dependable and 100% with communication. I was out of the country both times and will certainly use her again next time. My fur babies showed signs of stress upon my return and the house was tidy. Thank you Li!!!

Responsible & dedicated caretaker

Hi, I'm Li! I have happily volunteered to petsit many friends' and neighbors' furry friends ever since I was 10 years old, and have 2 years of paid experience. I also spoil and take care of our family dog, Poppy. I graduated from UF recently, and now have more free time on my hands. While I figure out my next steps, I have open availability & would prefer last-minute visits (as opposed to visits that ...

When Li watches your pet

Jonesville Park, Devil's Millhopper, Possum Creek Park, Ring Park, and Loblolly trails are some of my favorite places, or we can just walk around the neighborhood!

For each drop in visit, I like to take your pup(s) on a short walk (~15 minutes), unless instructed otherwise or if it's too hot/raining outside—then we'd only go outside for a bathroom break & play inside for the remaining time.

For dog walks, we walk for the entire 30 minutes, rain or shine. If it's a big thunderstorm, I will try and wait it out before heading out on a walk, since usually major downpours move quickly through Gainesville.

Interested in housesitting? Schedule a drop-in visit first, so I can get a feel for how your dog reacts with me in the house alone. I offer several options, starting at $27*

"Extended Drop-In"/Day Housesitting — $27* per day. Want a daycare-like setting but in your own home? I'll stay throughout the day (no overnight service). If I have other drop-in visits, I'll leave to take care of those.

Overnight Housesitting — $40* per night. I'll come in the late afternoon/evening, stay overnight and leave in the morning. I'll also apply this rate if you need continual service (more than 2 nights in a row) and allow me to do other morning/afternoon/evening drop-in visits.

24-hour Care — $75* per 24 hours. I'll stay with your dog exclusively for a full 24-hour cycle. I request that you let me know at least two weeks in advance so I can block off time in my schedule. *I may also have one midday walk during weekdays, but I'm usually gone for an hour.

*Extra fees may apply for more than 2 pets.
