I have never left my dogs alone or used a pet sitter before but I’m getting divorced and I honestly needed a vacation. My dogs are both rescues with some emotional attachment issues but when I came home they seemed happy, the house was not destroyed, and I feel great knowing that there is someone out there to trust them with so I can catch a break sometimes.

I was very nervous about leaving my cat for a couple days and ended up interviewing a couple sitters. It was very important to me that whomever watched Reese was familiar with cats. I felt very comfortable speaking with Brittney and so glad I ended up booking with her. My 2 visit booking turned into every day with last minute changes that she was able to accommodate. She was able to help with certain situations and keep me up to date with how Reese was doing. I will use Brittney again!

Laura was great! We have a cat who can be kind of unfriendly. Laura came early to meet him and was very understanding. Then she did a great job taking care of both our kitties!

Emily is fantastic! My dog, Milton LOVES her and is so excited every time she arrives. Emily is a natural with animals, nurturing and fun and they take to her quickly. She is also very clean and leaves our home looking better than we left it. There are very few people I trust to care for my dog-son, Emily is one of them!

About: As a lifelong dog lover, I've had the privilege of growing up with small dogs and currently have a large dog of my own. This experience has given me a unique perspective on the different needs of dogs of various sizes and temperaments. I understand that each dog is unique and requires personalized care. With my small dog, I learned the importance of gentle care, paying attention to their specific dietary needs, and ensuring they felt safe and loved in a big world. On the other hand, my experience with a large dog has taught me about the necessity of regular, vigorous exercise, strong leadership for training, and the management of a dog with substantial physical strength. I am skilled in providing a balanced approach to dog care, ensuring both the physical and emotional well-being of the pets under my supervision. My ability to adapt to the needs of different breeds and sizes means I can offer a tailored experience for each pet, ensuring they receive the best possible care and attention while their owners are away. Moreover, my hands-on experience has equipped me with practical skills in handling routine and unexpected situations calmly and effectively. I am confident in administering medications if required, recognizing signs of distress or health issues, and providing comfort and reassurance to pets who may miss their families. What sets me apart is not just my experience but my genuine love and understanding of dogs. I believe every pet deserves a caregiver who will treat them with the same love and attention as they would receive from their own family. As a remote worker with a flexible schedule, I find that integrating pet care into my daily routine is both seamless and enjoyable. I am at home throughout the day, which allows me to provide consistent and attentive care to pets. My work allows for regular breaks, during which I can engage in activities like walks, playtime, and feeding. Additionally, I have the freedom to adjust my work hours as needed, ensuring that I can cater to the specific needs of each pet, whether that involves extra walks, companionship, or adhering to a strict feeding schedule. Overall, my flexible work-from-home lifestyle ensures that I can provide dedicated and loving care to pets, making their well-being my top priority. Safety First: Ensuring the safety of your furry friend is my top priority. When walking dogs, I always use secure, well-fitted harnesses or collars and sturdy leashes to prevent any chance of escape or injury. For dog sitting in your home, I ensure that all potentially hazardous items are out of reach and that your pet is never left unattended in risky situations. Trustworthy Care: As a dog lover and experienced pet caretaker, I understand the importance of trust. During my visits, I'll send regular updates with photos, so you can see how your pet is doing. You can always reach me via phone or text if you have any concerns or special instructions. Comfortable Environment: When in your home, I respect your space and your pet's routine. I follow your instructions regarding feeding, exercise, and any medication. I ensure that your dog has ample playtime and exercise, according to their needs and your preferences. For walks, I choose safe, dog-friendly, and grassy (the best pee spots!) routes, avoiding overly crowded or potentially stressful environments. Extra Services: If needed, I can also perform small tasks like watering plants or bringing in mail during my visits, ensuring your home is well-cared for in your absence. I'm committed to providing the best possible care for your pet, ensuring they are safe, happy, and healthy in your absence. Looking forward to meeting you and your furry friend!

Linh is a very responsible and caring pet sitter. She has watched my dog on numerous occasions and has always taken great care of him when I asked her. Linh always followed my feeding instructions for him correctly and she also was able to take him out on walks when needed! When Linh took my dog on walks, she always sent pictures too to show that they were out together which was a nice added level of comfort.

We are relatively new cat owners and nervous about leaving to visit family on the West Coast. Dawn made us feel comfortable and went above and beyond in caring for our little man. He was abused in a previous home and hid the whole time, but she left on cat tv for him which brought him so much joy after she left. We can never thank you enough, Dawn! Highly recommend her services!
