We highly recommend Victoria. She was very attentive and professional. We arrived home and you could tell our GSD and Doodle had been very well cared for. Thanks Victoria!
In addition to being a wonderful dog caregiver, Victoria is also a great cat caregiver!!! She’s very conscientious, reliable and always communicates promptly when I ask about my pet while I’m traveling, (so nice to know!). I highly recommend Victoria as she is honest, trustworthy and charges a reasonable rate for top-notch pet sitting! Thank you, Victoria, for always providing such amazing pet care.
Victoria was amazing. Not only did I come home to happy and content pups, my house was immaculate. I really appreciated her text and picture updates even though she knew I would be out of cell service most of my trip. I will absolutely trust Victoria with my home and pets again!

Dog & House Sitting:
Please provide written directions for caring for your dog on a notepad, in a word doc file, etc.
Here’s what it should include:
-Feeding directions (times, amount, etc)
-Medication directions (times, dosage, how to administer, etc) if applicable
-Bathroom directions (where and when they go)
-Exercise directions (where, when, and how to exercise them, their favorite activities & toys)
-Allergies if applicable
-Bad habits, or quirks (shoe chewer, escape artist, likes to have music on when their owner leaves the house, etc)
-Current vet information
-An emergency contact who could make decisions for the dog in your absence
-Your preferred methods of disciplining and rewarding
-Commands that your dog responds to
-Chores you would like done daily/weekly (watering plants, vacuuming living room, or anything else you'd rather not worry about upon returning home) if applicable
Any other information pertinent to caring for your pup, home, or any other pets would be appreciated.
Your pet and home's safety and cleanliness is my number one priority. When you book me as your sitter, you can expect absolutely no traces of my stay, aside from a tidy house and a happy & healthy pup!
Special notes about Dog & House Sitting:
-Before booking we will need to schedule a Meet & Greet at your residence, so I can get to know you, your pet(s), and your home. Things that ought to be covered in this meeting are your expectations of me, what I can expect of your pets, your pets' routines, and the layout of your home (where you keep the dog food, where your pup likes to sleep, etc). Please ask any questions that you would need answered to have the utmost peace of mind. For house sitting, accommodations and house rules will also be discussed (where you'd prefer I sleep, which bathroom you'd prefer I use, places you'd rather I stay out of, etc).
-For house sitting, I will bring my own food to eat. The food in your pantry or fridge will never be touched. Additionally, I will never leave the home for more than 4 hours maximum for my weekly commitments (see the bottom of the About Me section of my profile)
-I will need a copy of your house key, so I can visit your pets and lock the door behind me to ensure the safety of your home. This key will be left in an agreed upon location in front of your home (i.e. under your door mat, under a potted plant, etc) by you on your first booked day and by me on your final booked day so that the key can be returned to you.
Information I would need in written form:
-Dog’s preferred walking route in the neighborhood
-Allergies & owner approved treats
-Bad habits, or quirks
-Any other pertinent information to ensure your dog’s safety and happiness
Special notes about Dog Walking:
-Before booking we will need to schedule a Meet & Greet at your residence, so I can get to know you and your pet(s). Topics that will be covered are your dog's walking habits (do they pull? Do they react poorly to other dogs?) and your expectations (would you like for me to make sure they do their business while they are out for their walk? Would you like me to use a specific route in your neighborhood? Will they need food afterwards?) This is also a great opportunity to get to know me, so you know exactly who is walking your pooch!
-I will need a copy of your house key, so I can visit your pets and lock the door behind me to ensure the safety of your home, especially if you’ll be at work while I walk your lovely dog. This key will be left in an agreed upon location in front of your home (i.e. under your door mat, under a potted plant, etc).
I will update my calendar regularly, so you can see which holidays I am available for, and which I am not. :)
