About: I love all animals and especially dogs! Trying to save up some money and no better way to do that than to take care of your fur babies! I'm comfortable with almost all animals but have the most experience with dogs. I’m fur mama to my baby Bella (beagle mix). I've had 3 basset hounds and multiple rescue pups from the shelter in my lifetime (personal and family pets). I'm open to the possibility of boarding pets if they are well-behaved/trained, comfortable in new settings, do well with my dog, and are kennel trained. I am available for house-sitting if my pup can come along and depending on my schedule. Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to caring for your pets! I work Monday - Friday but do work from home as well so I have some flexibility. Depending on needs and distance from work, I can accommodate requests. I have never met a dog or many animals I am not fast friends with. Even those that struggle with anxiety or are a bit scared.
“We can always count on Abigail to give our family pets excellent care. She is reliable and very responsible. She’s our go to dog watcher!”
“We had such a wonderful experience with Abby! She sat for our three dogs while we went to a rehearsal dinner and wedding on the cape. She had experience with both puppies and senior dogs and was the perfect companions for our pups. She is extremely communicative and professional and has a very sweet nature with dogs. Highly recommend!”
“Very kind and thoughtful. Made sure we brought some toys and treats to make our dog more comfortable and at home with her.”
“Gabriela knows dogs and he ability to take control and correct unwanted behavior is amazing. If you want to have a stress free happy dog home I highly recommend you give Gabriela a call. She was a godsend.”
About: I believe a happy pet is a reflection of the love and care they are receiving from their family as well the love they’re receiving from caregivers like myself. I also believe that a well behaved pet is just as beneficial to the family as it is to the animals themselves. That’s why I try to live by and practice the same principles in my life that I also make it a priority to provide to my clients and their loving companions by guaranteeing those basic principles which are communication, compassion, and commitment which always come from a place of respect and kindness. And it shouldn’t come as a surprise when I say that I’ve found that most animals respond extremely well to this type of positive reinforcement, recognizing and often craving this kind of balanced energy that makes for better relationships all around. That’s why I feel that this approach of mutual respect between myself and the animals that I care for is often contagious with other animals, especially whenever I have more than one with me because I genuinely believe the animals are not only more intelligent than most people believe, but more importantly and not unlike humans, animals are happier and more relaxed when there is structure and harmony in the group. And that structure shouldn’t be confused with inappropriate obedience methods that in my experience are often a result of someone’s inability to practice patience and or simple acts of kindness and compassion, whether it be with an animal or another human being. That’s why I love being around animals and other people that love and appreciate them, especially those that are willing to love and care for the ones that can’t advocate for themselves! My daily routine revolves around what is important to me, and that is my health and my passion, which is loving and caring for animals! I believe Pets are most comfortable in their own environment which is why I prefer caring for pets in their own homes if and when this is possible. I find it better for everyone, including the pets when I’m a guest in their space because I’m obviously aware of my boundaries as a guest in their home, and the pets are usually aware of what they’re allowed to do being in the space they’re accustomed to.
“Bridgette is an excellent in home pet sitter. I was a bit nervous since it was my time leaving my golden doodle, Sandy, but she was so reassuring and sent me pictures daily. Bridgette made me feel so comfortable while I was away!”
About: I’ve had dog(s) since before I was born and I try to make sure that they receive adequate back rubs, treats, and outfits in addition to their basic care. As a kid I watched many neighbors dogs while they were on vacation and I am always the first one to fill a food or water bowl At this time I have a wide range of availability to care for dogs in my schedule. I am open to different care options to best meet the dog’s needs I have a fenced in area where my three dogs are able to let themselves in and out via doggy door. They can have as much food as they want as they are feeder fed.
“Jamie did a great job watching our puppy over a long weekend while we were out of town! She was very responsive and professional. I would rebook or recommend Jamie to friends in the future.”
“Heidi is amazing! Took great care of my kitties, sent daily updates and pictures, and even tidied up a little before I came home! My vacation was so much more relaxing knowing my fur babies were in good hands. :) Would absolutely ask Heidi to pet-sit again next time I go out of town!”
“Daniel did a wonderful job house sitting for our rescue pup. She felt immediately comfortable with him and they had a blast. We would be lucky to have Daniel take care of her again!”

About: Originally from MN, I’ve taken care of dogs both here and at home. I’ve worked with puppies (10+ weeks) and older dogs (10+ years), plus many in between. On Island, I’ve overnight dog-sat and helped out during the day with feedings and walks (outside of Rover). I would love to provide any references as requested as well! I work full-time on island at an Interior Design Firm. I would love to walk your pups before or after work or check up on them during my lunch break! I also have the ability to dog-sit on nights both during the week and on weekends if you’re planning to be away from the Island. I am very responsible and organized. I am punctual and appreciate specific instructions to ensure I’m hitting all the requirements for your pup. I want my clients to come home relaxed knowing their dog was in good hands!
“Iben and Trevor were great! Our two pups loved all the cuddles, hikes and playtime. Happy to host them in our home while we were on vacation (helped our dogs feel much less anxious staying in their own beds in our home); they sent us lots of photos and videos and helped us feel comfortable being away from our pups.”

“Morgan was a wonderful dog sitter. She offered to arrive early, was perfect with our two dogs and sent us pictures throughout the evening. We will definitely book her again in the future.”
