We were skeptical about leaving our two dogs with anyone but familiar family members, as they can be a lot! One of our dogs is especially anxious around new people. Amy was great and came over to meet our dogs beforehand to help ease their (and our) anxiety. Amy stayed at our house for the weekend we were away and sent many updates, pictures and videos throughout the days. Amy was very knowledgeable on how to handle our fearful pup. She was patient, kind and gentle. We are very grateful we found Amy to watch our animals. We would definitely recommend Amy to others!

Laurel was so amazing with our sweet and nervous pup, Pepita! Pepita has stranger danger so will bark until she cools down. Laurel was very patient, understanding and reassuring. She also sent updates during the evening, which we appreciated. Highly recommend!

Carla took extra time to get to know our anxious little dog before she came to stay with him while we were traveling. He was relaxed and happy when we came home and she was the perfect guest, so considerate. We have already asked her to return.

Taylor was responsive in advance of our trip, and gave us great updates each day while we were gone. Our dog is often anxious when we go away, and it seems like he warmed right up to Taylor. She left our house spotless, too. We are already planning to have her come back again soon!

Jackie was amazing! She sent us regular picture/text updates, and we could tell that the animals had a nice full weekend. She was kind enough to wash/redress the bed linens, which was much appreciated. We would love to have her back again.

Courtney is such a perfect example of what you want in a sitter for your pet and in your home. I had such peace of mind about Hinckleys care at home I could really enjoy my time away. She came out of her way for a meet and greet a few days before the booking since I would be leaving town before she would be arriving at my house the day of dog sitting. Courtney is warm, friendly, responsible, and clearly a genuine dog lover. She sent me adorable pics several times on walks and snuggling with Hinckley, and updated me on their activities through the booking. Courtney was incredibly respectful of my home it was like she wasn’t even there, and Hinckley and I agree we will definitely be booking with her again!

Rachel P. is a Great Pet Sitter! Rachel has taken care of our two cats for six years, whenever we went away. She is very affectionate with them, as if they were her own cats. We have been away from one to two days to over a month, and we know that Lilly and Daisy will be taken care of. She is Very Dependable and Reliable. I have referred her to our neighbors and they were very happy! I would not hesitate to refer Rachel to others! If I could give her stars, I would definitely give her 5 Stars. Rachel Loves Animals and it shows in how she takes care of ours, and her own puppy.

Samantha provided such great care and companionship for our dog Zola that I’m not sure Zola will want us back! Lots of walks and playtime, interspersed with quiet and down time, seemed the perfect formula. Samantha took great care of our home, too, and followed our instructions to a T. Thanks so much!

Andrew was excellent -- consistently communicative and thoughtful in his approach to pet/housesitting for our cat over the holiday weekend, especially with regards to making sure all was correct with a complex petcare routine! We would highly recommend Andrew and will definitely book with him again for future trips away.

Mackenzie was a fantastic animal support person for our Sammy. Very communicative and understanding to all of his unique needs. Sammy has never been calmer after we've been away than he was with Mackenzie. Without hesitation we'd have her back to hang out with him again.
