Jessica is so kind, fun, and clearly is meant to be around animals in one way or another. My boys were THRILLED to see her every morning. She was helping me out as I’m dealing with cancer - her flexibility and understanding nature helped me trust her in my home and with my boys. Book her!

I was able to book Troy on short notice, which was very helpful. He was prompt, friendly, and my dog was instantly comfortable with him. I’d definitely recommend Troy and plan to book him again in the future!

Christina is the absolute best when it comes to caring for dogs. She has a deeply caring and empathetic heart and puts their well-being first. She makes sure they always get nice long walks to tucker them out and plenty of snuggles and pets. She's very organized and makes sure she attends to everything you ask. If you haven't made a checklist for her, she's probably made one herself. Would absolutely trust her with any dog!

About: I have been around and cared for animals for most of my life! Ranging from mostly cats of all ages to older dogs. Previously I’ve done home visits for check-ins and walks, to house-sitting for those on vacation. I am currently a full-time student, so I have a flexible schedule in between classes during the day and after 5 p.m. I can accommodate overnight care and I am available on the weekends! I am a full-time student, so during the week, I am unavailable... Mon. - 12 pm - 4 pm Tues. & Thurs. - 6 am - 6 pm Wed. & Fri.- 6 am - 11 am, 2 pm - 4 pm On weekends I am majorly available! Within your home, I would be more than happy to perform whatever duties are needed to keep your animals safe and happy. From kettling them if needed, to leashed walks. Just let me know what works best for you. I’m used to watching large dogs in un-fenced yards and having to crate one of them when I leave. Also used to either just take them out to go or take them on long 20-30 minute walks so they could get their exercise.

I have know Anna her whole life and know that she has a true heartfelt love for all animals. Dogs , cats, birds, rabbits, turtles, horses, guinea pig and hamsters Anna has taken care of them all. She takes the care of animals very seriously. If she does not know how best to interact or respond to an animals needs she will research the issue. She has taken many college level courses on animal care. Anna is very friendly and gets along with both 2 and 4 legged creatures. She is responsible and would be a wonderful pet sitter. She has almost always had a dog in her life. Anna is someone you could feel very comfortable trusting your dog with.

Alex took care of Marshal and Mojo while I was taking care of my husband in the hospital. He walked, fed, and played with two large breed dogs at a very stressful time in my life. Alex was trustworthy, punctual and loving when taking care of my dogs. He was always willing to do more and payed attention to detail with the dogs and my home the multiple times a day he cared for them during this time. I highly recommend Alex if you’re looking for peace of mind when needing someone to care for your pets.

About: I’ve taken care of dogs and cats since I was 12. Friends and family have relied on me for pet sitting whenever they are out of town. I currently work full-time Hybrid. I work from home Mondays and Fridays. During this time I can provide care specific to your pet and their needs. I can provide potty breaks every 0-2 hours at least. I have a giant fully fenced back yard and 2 friendly dogs. One dog prefers more to watch the other dogs play while the other dog loves to be in all the action!

About: I wouod love to watch your pets. I am a full time personal trainer in the Des Moines area. I am very active with my dogs and have no issue keeping yours active either. I am well experienced with dogs and trained in giving medication. I live in a house with just my two dogs while my fiance is away on medical rotation. I have a large fenced in backyard and two dogs as I mentioned(a springer spaniel and an Aussie mix). They love other animals and are very well mannered. I work full time but have weekends off. I usually am free after 2pm most days. I wake up early and walk my dogs at least 2 miles every day I have a fenced in backyard with plenty of room to run as it is a large yard. My two dogs love it back there!
