Justin was great to work with! He asked great questions at drop off to get to know our dog and care for him well. Would recommend him and use him again in the future! He was also transparent about other dogs he was boarding the same time ours was there.

I have booked with Jessica a few times now and recommend her to anyone looking for top notch care for their pet. This most recent time I did not realize that my pup had a broken nail before dropping her off and Jessica saw it right away, took her to the vet, and went above and beyond to care for her during her week long stay. Also, my flight back to Des Moines was extremely delayed and Jessica was super accommodating and understanding. Jessica is incredibly responsive and I trust her completely with my dog Iommi. Whether you need a daycare stay or extended stay, Jessica is the person to book with. Thank you so much again Jessica!

I have used Erin and Chris to watch my chocolate lab many many times! I feel so comfortable leaving town because I know they treat my dog like he is their own! If you are searching Rover to find a potential sitter, just stop and book on their page. You won’t regret it!❤️

Elizabeth was awesome. Sage had such a great time with her. In the past she has not eaten while we were away, but she ate while staying with Elizabeth and her pups. She was great about staying in communication and sending sweet photos. I will be using her again. Couldn’t be more pleased.

I could tell my dog was so happy during her stay and she returned to us so tired from playing all day. Ashley is great at communicating, treated my dog as her own, and her dogs are so friendly!

Oscar always has a blast with Casandra. It’s wonderful knowing that when we go on vacation Oscar gets to have a vacation as well. He is always very excited to meet new friends and get pampered.

Dana is simply awesome - she was very flexible with a last minute booking on a Sunday night for and overnight. I feel very comfortable leaving Theo in her care and he always comes home tuckered out from all the fun he has with her and her furry friends.

About: I've grown up around dogs and have a passion for animals. I have succeeded in training my current puppy in multiple commands and managed to have him fully housebroken by the age of 4 months. I typically work from home Mondays and Fridays and can check on pets at regular intervals. Occasionally I may run 1-2 hour long errands while the dogs play in the back yard. My current dog is a loving 4 month old Great Pyrenees/GSD mix who has a wonderful temperament and is a perfect early socialization experience for nervous dogs. There is a decent-sized fenced in yard for dogs to run around in complete with a plastic kiddie pool to help cool off on Sunny days. While inside the dogs will be regulated to the kitchen and living areas.

I’m extremely pleased with the care provided by Megan when she took care of my 2 dogs for 6 days/5 nights while I was out of state on vacation. I had never left them that long with anyone before, and one of mine (Callie) is very attached to me and has some separation anxiety. But my fears were put to rest by Megan’s kind and reassuring manner when we first met and even more so when she sent me updates and several pictures every day to let me know how my pups were doing. She let me know my 2 pups were getting along well with her 2 little dogs, and the pictures reinforced they were making themselves at home. I really appreciated that she has a large fenced in yard for the dogs since mine are used to that. I will definitely use Megan again and am so relieved to know I can leave my dogs with her and they will be well cared for. She is awesome! I highly recommend her.

Michelle & Mark were so sweet! My Frenchie has epilepsy and they took notes and asked lots of questions about her meds and made sure they were ready in case anything happened. We were also traveling out of state and when I got to their house I realized I had forgotten my dogs food and they ran out and got some for her so I didn't have to travel back home. I would highly recommend them and will not hesitate to ask them to watch her again if needed! Thank you Mark and Michelle!!

Scott did a wonderful job looking after Teddy. Teddy got lots of playtime and walks. He was pleasantly worn out when we got him home. We will absolutely use Scott again!

This was my first time looking for a sitter and I am a first time pet owner so you can imagine the worries of making sure you found a good sitter! Sue was the first and only sitter i got in touch with! She is extremely friendly, and a great communicator, I even did a pre-trip visit with my cat bento to where he would be staying with her! After leaving bento with Sue for over a week, it is safe to say that Sue is the best at what she does, I would never look for another sitter again!

My dogs were happy and exhausted when I picked them up from a two-night weekend stay at Lucia's. Lucia sent me a photo each day to let me know my two fur babies were doing well and I had no worries at all while I, too, enjoyed my weekend. Would recommend Lucia. Definitely worth the drive.
