“We were so pleased with how Max's first stay with Mariah went. He has separation anxiety and we weren't sure how he would handle being left with someone new. He loved Mariah and seemed relaxed in her home.”

About: I have always been the friend or family member to call when any pet needs watched or any pet question arises. I have worked as a bather in grooming salon for a year and I learned a lot about dog behaviors and training first hand. Also my boyfriend is a photographer so expect many cute photos of your dog after their visit. My boyfriend and I currently work from home full time. Our ham of dog Murphy is so flippin’ bored during the day and would love a playmate to run around with. I have a fenced in backyard and one dog that would love to keep your pup entertained. We also have two cats in the home who typically keep to themselves.
“Emily is a great pet sitter! She has taken care of both of my pups and my cat on multiple occasions. Her home is spacious with room for my pups to roam inside and out. She is dependable, kind, and very caring toward my pets.”
About: Family has relied on me for all pet needs. I’ve helped with sitting, potty breaks, feeding and walking. Or even just to keep their fur babies company. I work remotely with the ability to adapt my schedule a needed for pet care. I’m available during daytime hours and can provide evening hours as arranged. I have a fenced in back yard. One cat and one YorkiPoo :) I do have 3 children as well that love animals and would provide great companionship.
“Kayla is awesome. I trust no one with my puppy, I’m an extreme helicopter mom and worry constantly. She kept me updated with pictures all day which was really comforting, I always felt at ease. Her times were very flexible with my work schedule and I couldn’t be happier I left him with her! Thank you Kayla!!!”
“Jessica takes great care of my dog and loves on her like one of her own. My dog is always super excited to go over there (she knows where we're going when I say her dogs names) and she comes home nice and sleepy from all the fun she has.”
“Amethyst was so spectacular! This was the first time me leaving Sandy with someone she didn’t know and it went great! She sent photos throughout their time there which helped with the tiny bit of worry I had. 10 out of 10 would recommend this lovely sitter.”
“Madison was an absolute gem! She was amazing at watching my puppy, kept me in the loop about how she was doing, and made sure my puppy felt loved and cared for. I can tell she truly loves dogs and enjoys being able to provide a fun, sweet place for them to be themselves and make great new dog friends!”
“Crystal is absolutely amazing! Sometimes I think Mori loves her more than me, which is the best you can ask for! She always comes home so tried and ready to pass out. Highly recommend💕”
About: We are a household of animal lovers. We go on daily walks, play in the yard, and make sure the pets are pampered and living their best life I currently work from home and have a flexible schedule where I can monitor and play with the animals at all times throughout the day. We have a decent sized fenced in yard that the dogs love to run around in. We also go on daily walks that we require leashes for.
“I have nothing but good things to say about Kaylee! She has been helping me for a few months now with my new puppy. She responds promptly, is ready on time for pick up/drop off, and is always so sweet and upbeat! I totally recommend her and her fiancé to take good care of your dog !!!”
“Traci was very approachable and very accommodating! Great service! Would recommend! ❤️”
“Lynn gave great updates and gave our dog easy access to sunshine and water. He came home very happy!”
About: I've been around dogs my entire life, including senior and special needs dogs. Growing up my family ran a doggy day care so I'm also comfortable with any and all dog breeds and sizes. I'm on a hybrid schedule at work so I will be home all day during every other week. I am available on weekends as well! I have a small fenced yard and will provide daily walks. Our home has 2 playful pitbulls who love to be friends with everybody. We have space to kennel and separate dogs if needed.
“Dana was able to accommodate a last minute request on a Holiday weekend. Very responsive with messages and remained very flexible with drop off and pick up times. Theo and Piper returned home completely exhausted and very content! They enjoyed their stay! I would definitely recommend Dana to all fur parents!”
“My dog had a great time with Stacey. He’s got some Separation Anxiety but she made him feel very safe and comfortable. She sent great photos to let me see how he was doing. Would definitely recommend.”
“Corah and her family did an excellent job watching hank! You could tell from the photos and video she sent while watching him. Not only that, she was extremly flexible with her scheduling. I will definitely be using her again!”
“Really enjoyed Jasmine's flexibility and willingness to work with our schedule! She gave great updates and our pup is tired (in the best way).So grateful she took such great care.”
“Maggie and Betty had a lot of fun playing in the yard, and I loved getting pictures from McKenzie during their stay. Thanks for taking care of my treasured pups!”

“Christy N worked with my dog since she was a fragile puppy. It isn’t just my dog, she has not met a dog she doesn’t create a bond with. My dog gets absolutely giddy with joy when Christy takes care oh her. I highly recommend Christy N.”
