“Danielle is an amazing dogsitter and a wonderful person. My dog is very nervous based on her life experiences prior to being rescued, so she needs a lot of patience, reassurance, and a quiet/calm environment. It was clear that she got all of her needs met at Danielle’s house. The videos and photos Danielle sent me put my mind at ease because I could see that my dog’s body language was similar to how she acts at home. My dog also loved playing in the yard and snuggling with Danielle’s dog. I will definitely be rebooking with Danielle!”

“All I have to say is that I will never take my furbabies to another sitter. Monica is fantastic! They went for walks and played lots! She is VERY understanding of the bullie breed. One of my dogs even had a small blister on his paw. She cleaned it, put on neosporin and wrapped it. I was so happy that she didnt just let it go even though we were picking up in a few short hours.”
“Danielle watched my Goldendoodle in a friendly and professional way. She was responsive and my dog was happy with her.”
“Absolutely loved Amanda watching Nash! She works with you on adjustments with pick up and drop off. She sends a lot of pictures and videos. Nash had a friend that he played with the entire time which was great play time. I know he had so much fun, I had piece of mind! If I was staying in the area, he would probably visit Amanda every time needed!”
