“Samantha took Max on very short notice, and he seemed to have a good time! She had several other dogs for Max to play with and he left calm and tired. I would definitely take him to her again.”
“Jen was an absolute delight and took great care of both of my dogs! She was extremely accommodating and friendly! I highly recommend and will definitely rebook with her in the future as the need arises!”
“Corah and her family did an excellent job watching hank! You could tell from the photos and video she sent while watching him. Not only that, she was extremly flexible with her scheduling. I will definitely be using her again!”
“Kayla is awesome. I trust no one with my puppy, I’m an extreme helicopter mom and worry constantly. She kept me updated with pictures all day which was really comforting, I always felt at ease. Her times were very flexible with my work schedule and I couldn’t be happier I left him with her! Thank you Kayla!!!”
Tanya & Jonathan P.
“This was my first time finding a sitter for my dog, Shiloh. I was so desperate to find someone to watch him but also didn't know if I could trust anyone. I was so impressed of how comfortable me and Shiloh were when meeting Tanya for the first time. She was so welcoming and reassured everything was going to be taken care of. I love how she kept me updated on Shiloh's progress through text and pictures! (Amazing photography skills by the way) I'm so happy that I finally found someone to watch him when I truly need it. I highly recommend Tanya to care for your fur babies!”
“Excellent sitter! My boys absolutely love hanging out with Amethyst and her dogs. Amethyst is super thoughtful, caring, and communicative about my boys. I highly recommend Amethyst!”
Michelle & Mark B.
“Michelle and Mark were awesome sitters for our weimerainer. They were very flexible, great communicators, sent pictures as updates and wore our dog out, which is hard to do. Best experience ever! Will definatley use them again!”
“We feel so fortunate to have found Scott! Our golden retriever has the absolute best time at his house; she comes home tired and happy. And he sends the best pictures showing us what she’s up to throughout the day … I wish my kids’ daycare was this thorough!”
“Jessica is one of the most caring and responsible people I know. She is respected by her peers and family because of her work ethic. It is clear that she adores animals of all kinds. She not only has pets of her own but has volunteered her time and resources to foster animals through the ARL. She is the best person to take care of animals because she is a naturally compassionate person. I would trust her with my pets and recommend her to everyone I know. She is an incredible human being!”
“I have known Ezequiel for over 8 years. He always takes great care of his two Corgis and I would trust him to take care of my pets and anyone’s else’s! He is attentive and ensures they have a safe a loving home to play, eat and sleep.”
About: Family has relied on me for all pet needs. I’ve helped with sitting, potty breaks, feeding and walking. Or even just to keep their fur babies company. I work remotely with the ability to adapt my schedule a needed for pet care. I’m available during daytime hours and can provide evening hours as arranged. I have a large grassed area right outside my patio & also a walking trail next to my complex we use often :) I have 3 children that love animals and would provide great companionship.
About: I’ve had pets my whole life, once I moved out on my own though I took in 2 cats and a dog. (Unfortunately my dog recently passed however) One of my cats was taken from his mom at 2 weeks old and I raised him completely, bottle feeding and everything. I take pet care very seriously no matter who’s animal I will love them as if they were my own :) I work part time at the moment at a doggy daycare. However I am simply not getting enough hours so work 1-3 days a week and it Varys every week. I will update my availability every week to my days off however when I do work it is always 6am-2pm so I would be available after work either way. I have a decent sized house with two cats that roam the house but have lived with a dog in the past and got along super well with. I keep trash away from dogs as I know some have a habit of eating stuff like that and when caring for dogs I tend to keep them in the same room with me at all times and when taking them out I have a large fenced in yard that they can run freely in unless requested to take them on walks instead or as well as taking them into the backyard. Food will be kept in a room under supervision by me. Whatever my clients request I will likely be happy to oblige so just let me know what schedules your pets are on or whatever they like to do or how they like to play. Before booking with me as well just think of your dogs habits and experience with other pets specifically cats as I like to keep as healthy and safe of an environment as possible for any pets within my home.
“Dana was able to accommodate a last minute request on a Holiday weekend. Very responsive with messages and remained very flexible with drop off and pick up times. Theo and Piper returned home completely exhausted and very content! They enjoyed their stay! I would definitely recommend Dana to all fur parents!”

“Alexandra and Andy took great care of our pup! Thank you!”
“Ky has watched my dog several times throughout the years. She recently joined Rover, but I couldn't recommend her enough. She is very kind and attentive towards my dog, and my dog warmed up to her very quickly. She also has great communication and provides updates on how the stay is going. You can tell she loves doing her job.”

“Lisa has stayed with my 2 small dogs twice. Once over the weekend, and once for the whole week. She does an excellent job! My dogs love her! I’ve never had a problem with her. When she comes over, my dogs gravitate to her. Highly recommend!”
