“Nick is a superb caregiver, not simply reliable and trustworthy, but a “care” giver. He genuinely enjoys the pets. Nick has cared for my dogs on numerous occasions while on the east coast. I am jealous you have access to him now! You won’t find a better friend for your pet. He’s the best.”
“Candice was great! Quick to respond to communications and showed up at the exact time requested down to the minute. I can tell from the photos she shared our dogs were fans of hers as well :)”
“Kaitlin has an unprecedented way with animals. Her work at Happy Hollow Zoo was profound, and the way in which she cares for her own puppy is quite amazing. She makes a connection with animals unlike anyone else I know!”
“Walker is great. He is a responsible and loving pet owner and caregiver, always puts the animals first. Your animals are in great and loving hands with Walker, you can trust him to the MAX.”
“Shelly was available right away to walk my dog while I was stuck at work. She responded quickly to me and took care of my dog really well. I highly recommend Shelly!”
“April was absolutely amazing with our pup!! She was so good at communicating and sent us cute pup updates and photos. We were away on our honeymoon and needed someone to let her out mid day. We missed her so much so seeing photos really eased our minds. April is a gem and we definitely will be asking for her help in the future ♥️♥️”
“Amber is an exceptional petsitter! My two senior kitties, Spike and Mango, fell in love love with her immediately. Amber has a natural calm and kind energy and my kitties just wanted to snuggle with her. She’s a responsible caretaker, reliable, and punctual. Amber fed them and gave them their medications on time, she cleaned up after them and kept our house maintained, and she was on the dot with feeding them breakfast and dinner. Amber’s care is above and beyond. If you want an amazing pet lover to care for your pets, then please reach out to Amber. I cannot recommend her highly enough!”
“Kaitlyn is always at her best when she’s got dogs in her life. She understands the importance of the love and care that is needed to ensure they feel safe around her and the environment they are walking in. She is a disciplined walker that can be flexible to any sort of walk/care routine having had experience with both active and senior pets. She is responsible, attentive to details, and is a great communicator. Her customer service background allows her to adapt to the style of communication that you deem necessary. Most importantly, Kaitlyn is passionate about dogs; she loved them with all of her heart, and I think dogs sense that and love her back.”
“Sarah is a top notch Pet sitter. She has taken care of my dogs for Years. She is caring and responsible and full of energy and adventure. The animals are always so happy when she is with them and I never have to worry. It is the best feeling to have peace of mind when someone else is caretaking Your pets! Sarah is amazing!”
“I adopted my pet Digby less than two months ago, and Nicole's help and guidance has been instrumental in helping me and him work to establish a comfortable routine. She is reliable, responsive, caring and really helpful. I'm sure she's as wonderful with all the other dogs she walks as she is with Digby.”

“J & C do a great job with our Belgian Mali--Mollie. She's very happy seeing them. They are very responsive and easy to deal with. Mollie will continue walking them each afternoon. Highly recommended!”
“Adeola is very attentive and conscious. She is punctual, honest, responsive and very responsible. She has watched my cats several times and they absolutely love her”
“Benjamin did a great job with our Luna! This was her first walk with a stranger and it took a bit for her to warm up to him, but he had the patience to calm her fears. He was on time and very kind and professional. Will definitely use him again!!”
About: Having raised rescue dogs of my own for the past 17 years, I'm acutely aware that each dog has their own backstory, unique needs, and special personality. I strive to care for your family member the same way you do, by thoroughly crafting a care plan for each pup under my watch. I'm lucky enough to be able to care for your furry loved one full time. This means I can maintain their routine, whether that involves administering medication, more frequent walks/bathroom breaks, or specific bedtime activities. Below are what you can expect for each service type that I offer. In addition, I will work with each of my pet parents to ensure that our care plan is customized for your furry family member's unique needs including their likes and dislikes as well as their individual personality. OVERNIGHT BOARDING guests and DOGGY DAYCARE attendees will enjoy: - Alone time to relax in their own spacious, climate controlled, private room for themselves and any siblings. - An attached bathroom for private meal times as required. - Administration of up to five medications as required. - Up to three walks per day (length and duration customized to your furry family member's needs). - Access to a fenced in yard as well as plenty of green space within the neighborhood. - Playtime with our other dogs or one-on-one playtime with me. - Enrichment activities throughout the day customized to your furry loved one's needs and interests. - Photos and updates sent to their pet parent. ***Please note that drop offs and pickups for DOGGY DAYCARE attendees are between 7am-7pm every day. Pickups outside of these hours will incur a $15 additional fee.*** Furry family members needing DROP-IN VISITS will receive: - A potty break as well as one-on-one play time with me for thirty minutes (please see Additional Services & Rates for longer visits and holiday rates.) - Meals and/or medication as required. - A customized drop-in plan based on their needs. - Photos and updates sent to their pet parent. Dogs I WALK will get a chance to: - Stretch their legs and explore their neighborhood for thirty minutes (please see Additional Services & Rates for longer walks and holiday rates.) - Enjoy a customized walking plan based on their needs.
“I hired Jane to petsit/walk my dog, Shadow. I normally am very hesitant to trust my dog with other people, as Shadow is a very skittish dog and distrusting of strangers (he is a rescue). However, Jane was able to win Shadow over with her calm energy and the pet sitting went well. I will definitely use Jane again when I go on a trip - she is extremely reliable and loves animals!”
“We're so grateful for Michelle! She has taken care of our pup many times over this past year and our dog absolutely adores her (as do we)! Besides being reliable, she is also deeply thoughtful and detailed oriented. When handing our pup over to her, she's mindful to ask of routines that our dog is used to (including walk pattern/feeding times) in order to minimize stress for our pup. Michelle has also housesat for us with our pup several times, and she was communicative the whole time we were gone. She would send us updates with photos of our pup on her walks/during their snuggle time when we were away, and it gave us such peace of mind. Our pup threw up one time (which she does when she drinks too fast) and Michelle was quick to notify us and ask how to best care for her. Michelle is definitely our go to person to take care of Denali when we're away because we can count on her to take care of our pup like we would, and give her the attention and adoration that she deserves!”
“Jennifer has taken wonderful care for both of my dogs. When my dog Anakin was sick with a brain tumor, I hired Jennifer to come walk him but also spend time with him so he wasn’t so alone while I was away at work. Jennifer has an amazing love and understanding with dogs and would highly recommend her. Now that I have a new dog, Jennifer has helped me out with walks and house sitting and she is trustworthy, sends updates and pictures, and is good left my place is perfect condition.”
“Aman is a responsible and trustworthy pet sitter! Ive known him through of a friend of mine for 4 years and I had to leave out of town for work. He offered to watch my dog and he sent daily pictures of him! My dog looked extremely happy. Aman also took my dog to Lake Merrit numerous times, which allowed him to get fresh air and and play with other dogs! I definitely would recommend booking with him, your dog is in safe hands. Hell be my first choice when I head out of town and I need a dog watcher! (:”
“Leila will take care of your pet like her own. Her home is set up well for both dogs and cats, and she takes the time to accommodate to your pet when needed. She communicates well throughout the whole pet sitting process and ensures your pet is safe and sound.”
