So thankful we found Jason to care for our young energetic pup! He came with great questions and call-outs, a reflection of his experience with caring for all types and ages. Provided a ton of updates throughout, which really helped calm my nerves as this was the first time we had someone house and dog sit our pup. Will definitely contact Jason again in the future!!

Maddie is an incredibly sweet and kind person! My usually grumpy/standoff dog was giving her kisses within minutes of meeting and loved having her sleep over. I would highly recommend booking Maddie for walks or overnights, I plan to book with her again.

Katie was amazing! She house sat for us for FOUR dogs total (3 of ours plus my mother in laws pup) and I felt super comfortable with her taking care of our zoo of loved ones. She sent updates and any questions she had while we were gone, and when we returned the pups were all happy and healthy. Very smart and trustworthy - strongly recommend!

Faith took wonderful care of our one year old pup and two cats. She was super helpful caring for our dog’s ears which had some skin issues due to a possible ear infection. Faith send photos each day and we didn’t worry for a second knowing our fur babies were in great care. Faith left our house spotless with extra touches that make coming home from a trip that much better. Will be using Faith again and highly recommend!

Ellie & Jurre were so lovely from the first message exchange to the very last update when Ellie said she gave Kuta a 30 min walk, fed him, gave him a bully stick and even did the sheets on gentle! She sent a few pics at the end of the day and was always responsive and respectful - I can tell from the pics and the updates she wrote that my dog fell head over paws for her and Jurre! Thanks!

Maja is the best. On top of everything, keeps you updated the entire time and Harmony had a great time. She goes above and beyond every time (this is at least 4th or 5th time she has sat for me and every time I am still shocked at how great she is). Thanks again!

Lauren is an exceptional pet caregiver with a lifetime of experience caring for dogs. I've known Lauren for years and her compassionate, responsible, and caring nature towards people and animals make her the perfect choice for anyone seeking a trustworthy pet sitter or dog walker. When she watched my dog one summer, she was always communicative, on-time, and reliable. She also was super attentive and responsible at the many minor tasks and notes that I asked her to perform for my dog, such as specific feeding times, walking intervals, and play times. My dog loves her and got along with her very fast, it was like my dog knew Lauren forever. I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else! Lauren has a unique ability to connect with both people and animals, which allows her to be one of the best pet caregiver I have known. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a pet caregiver anytime someone asks me if I know who is the best pet sitter in town.

Flannery was amazing with our pup. Flannery was kind, caring and communicative. She made time to visit with our dog before our dates and asked questions to ensure the best care was given to our dog. She sent great videos and updates throughout her stay with our kiddo giving us peace of mind knowing our pup was happy and well. Thank you, Flannery. Can’t wait to have you back!

Ely did such a wonderful job watching our cat, dog and home for the week! When we got home the house was tidier than we left it (after a rainy week of muddy paws) which was such a peaceful way to come home from a trip. Would love to have Ely watch our pets again!
