“Lisa was amazing with our 3 dogs. They are not really people dogs and she was able to get them to warm up to her. She stayed at our house which made us more comfortable to leave them. She was neat and tidy! We will definitely be booking with her again!”

About: I’ve taken care of all kinds of animals all my life. I grew up on a farm. I watch a lot of friends and neighbors pets frequently. I currently work full time but I get off work at 2pm. Free to give all the love your pet needs after that. I’m available for boarding after 2pm weekdays and free all weekends. Trips to dog beach, dog parks, or walking hiking trails are included free of charge during their care if you’d like. I have a fenced yard and two very friendly fixed female dogs that are here to keep your baby company. I can also crate your dog or mine if necessary. I have multiple crates and a kennel aside from the yard plus the home to get around in.
“Great sitter!!! Five Stars! Will rebook! Lauryn goes the extra mile! And when your fur babies are left home alone, that's exactly the type of person you need! -plus I was always updated on the day, and received lots of pictures! ? ?”
“Jordan did a great job caring for our dog Sasha while we were away. He made sure she was comfortable, let us know when she may have experienced some discomfort, and took some great photos of Sasha. Overall, Jordan was a great communicator and checked-in often to confirm that Sasha’s needs were being met. We’d definitely recommend Jordan and will rebook him in the future!”
“Alex was an absolute rockstar! Our 11yo bullmastiff recently was diagnosed with epilepsy, and needs round the clock loves and medications, which Alex was up for the challenge and killed it! We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation without issue! This fur mama will book again!”
“We count ourselves very lucky to have gotten Julie to sit for our Great Dane & elderly cat for 5 days. She was a great communicator, question asker and very considerate & conscientious with our pets and our home. When we got home from travels, our babies acted like we were never gone, which is just a testament to how Julie treated them like her own. Book Julie if you can, she’s fantastic!”

About: When it comes to dog sitting, my experience and passion for dogs set me apart from other sitters. While many sitters may have experience caring for dogs, I bring a unique perspective as someone who has grown up with dogs and actively watched dogs before. My upbringing with dogs has instilled in me a deep understanding of their needs, behaviors, and the importance of providing them with love, care, and attention. Through my previous dog-sitting experiences, I have gained valuable insights into handling different breeds, temperaments, and specific requirements that dogs may have. This has allowed me to develop effective strategies for ensuring their well-being and providing a comfortable environment. Moreover, my passion for dogs drives me to go the extra mile in providing exceptional care. I genuinely enjoy spending time with dogs, engaging in various activities that keep them mentally and physically stimulated. Whether it's playing fetch, going on long walks, or simply providing cuddles and affection, I strive to create a positive and fulfilling experience for the dogs under my care. Additionally, I understand the importance of clear communication with pet owners. I prioritize keeping them informed about their dog's well-being, daily activities, and any notable behavior or health changes. This open line of communication helps establish trust and reassures owners that their beloved pets are in good hands. Overall, my combination of experience, love for dogs, and dedication to providing exceptional care sets me apart as a dog sitter.

During weekdays, my availability for pet care typically begins after 3pm.

However, when it comes to house sitting, I am more flexible. If you require my services for house sitting, we can discuss the details in advance and come up with a tailored plan that accommodates your schedule. House sitting allows me to provide round-the-clock care for your pets, ensuring their comfort and well-being in the familiar surroundings of their own home. On the weekends, my availability is more flexible due to my open schedule. I understand that weekends can be busy times for pet owners, and I am committed to being there for you and your pets whenever you need me.

I believe in maintaining open communication and transparency with pet owners. By discussing your needs and availability in advance, we can work together to create a pet care plan that suits your schedule and ensures your pets receive the attention and care they deserve When caring for pets in an owner's home, there are several key aspects that I prioritize to ensure the well-being and happiness of the animals: safety, trust, environment, enrichment, and attention. First and foremost, safety is of utmost importance. I take great care to create a secure environment for the pets under my care. This includes being mindful of potential hazards in the home, such as toxic substances, loose wires, or open windows, and taking necessary precautions to eliminate or minimize any risks. I make sure to familiarize myself with emergency procedures and contact information provided by the owner, ensuring that I am prepared to handle any unexpected situations that may arise. Establishing trust with both the pets and their owners is crucial. I understand that pets may initially feel anxious or uneasy with a new person in their home. Therefore, I approach them with patience, respect, and a calm demeanor. I allow them to set the pace of our interaction, gradually building trust through gentle and positive reinforcement. Similarly, maintaining open and clear communication with the owners helps foster trust, as I provide regular updates on their pet's well-being, activities, and any notable changes or concerns. Creating a comfortable and stimulating environment is essential for the pets' overall happiness. I ensure that their basic needs are met, such as providing fresh food and water, maintaining cleanliness in their living areas, and following any specific dietary instructions. I pay attention to their preferred routines, whether it's specific feeding times, exercise routines, or playtime activities, to help them feel at ease. Additionally, I strive to maintain a calm and peaceful atmosphere in the home, minimizing any disruptions that may cause stress to the pets. Enrichment plays a vital role in keeping pets mentally and physically stimulated. I engage with the pets through interactive play sessions, puzzle toys, and activities that cater to their specific breed or species needs. Whether it's a game of fetch, hide-and-seek, or teaching them new tricks, I aim to provide a variety of enriching experiences that prevent boredom and promote their overall well-being. Lastly, I ensure that pets receive ample attention and affection. I understand that animals thrive on companionship and social interaction. I spend quality time with them, providing cuddles, petting, and grooming as needed. I adapt to their individual personalities and preferences, offering the attention and love they crave
“Cheyenne has dog sat for us a few times and each time she was timely and a good communicator. We’d definitely recommend and continue to book her!”
“Kayla has been a wonderful caregiver to my baby Theo. She has watched him overnight and ensures that he is cared for with much special attention. She knows how important it is to me to keep him on his schedule and make sure he has plenty of activity to keep him busy. She shares pictures and videos which makes me feel better when I leave him while traveling. I highly recommend Kayla. She is a thoughtful and bright dog sitter. You won't be disappointed.”
About: I’ve trained a handful of family/friends dogs in my spare time or whenever I can at a get together. I have a lot of love in my heart for animals in general as my mom always made sure we had animals in the house growing up. It taught me my first form of responsibility as a child as well as how to understand unconditional love. I am truly that person that finds the animal at any home any given day because they are just the best family members a person can have. I am a part-time waitress and highly respected at my job because I always go above and beyond when it comes to my responsibilities at work. I am great with forming relationships with clients and customers and that very much transitions to my ability to care for animals. I have a very flexible schedule as well so I am openly available most days/evenings. I will always accommodate to the fur baby’s needs according to owner. I am a type A person so I love organization but I am also capable of going with the flow. It really is up to the owner and pet needs. I am to always be respectful of property and make sure I do my job efficiently.
“We were so lucky that Natasha was able to accommodate an in-home dog-sitting visit on extremely short notice! We hate leaving our senior dog alone as he has separation anxiety and myriad health issues. Natasha responded to our Rover request within minutes, and the following day she spent several hours (culminating in a rather late evening) caring for our pup. Our admittedly excitable dog seemed very relaxed in her calm presence, and we were very comfortable leaving him in her capable hands for our last-minute outing. I would absolutely use her pet-sitting services again and heartily recommend her to anyone else looking for a responsible, kind individual to care for their pet.”
“Jeremy is kind and patient with my pup and I know he would be the same with yours as well. He has two kitties which he loves dearly and dotes on. He is trustworthy and can be counted on to show up on time and give your pets the attention and love that you would give them.”
“Eileen was amazing with our pups Moose (chocolate lab) and Lucy (hound mix)! We traveled out of town for a long weekend and Eileen stayed at our home with the dogs. From the meet and greet to everything in between, she was professional, kind, accommodating, trustworthy, and great with our dogs which let us relax on our trip and have a wonderful time. She sent lots of photos and updates everyday and I was so appreciative of these since traveling without the dogs is always hard. I would definitely hire Eileen again and she also took great care of our home! Everything was neat and clean when we arrived back,we couldn’t have asked for anything more, Eileen is great! ?”
