Vanessa is a great sitter! I’ve used her a couple times now, and she’s been absolutely great. She takes the worry and stress out of leaving my four-legged baby. I will definitely be using her again.

Another amazing stay from Vanessa! She sent awesome pictures of our pup and played with her for a while. I am very happy with this drop-in visit!

We had an amazing experience with Vanessa! It was our first time leaving our dog with someone besides family so we were a little nervous. She went above and beyond with our 1 year old dog. She gave me several updates and pictures throughout the day which helped ease our worries. She even gave me updates on our cat when she did not need to. We have already rebooked her and will keep doing so ...

Thanks Chloe! It was wonderful working with you. Nora and Goat were awesome, looking forward to our next visit!

What Vanessa would like to know about your dog

I'm a huge fan of Shelties and Collies but I love all dogs. I am willing to work with protective breeds and large dogs at your home. I am also a cat lover and understand the finer things in life like cat nip and feathers on strings. I’ll get your kitty up and moving or provide a warm lap :)
