“Abegail is prompt, kind, a great listener and was a wonderful sitter. We had never left our pups and Abegail took the time to come to our house not once but twice before we left to take them for a walk, understand my concerns with both dogs (one of whom is anxious) and get to know them. She sent us notes and pictures while we were away for a week. Our dogs seemed happy and calm. I can’t recommend Abegail enough. I will definitely have her watch my pups again. Thank you Abegail!”
“Excellent care for our pup Lucy! We were away for a few days, lots of pictures and love. Lucy was calm and at ease when we returned.”
About: I have provided pet care services for friends over the last ten years while friends and neighbors have enjoyed time away on vacations. I can promise that your dogs and cats will be cared for properly, given daily walks, and be provided interactive play time. I have a full-time job which provides flexibility in my daily schedule. I can develop a schedule that works between the client and myself to ensure the needs of the pets are covered. I will offer a time to meet the owners and pets before any service in order to create a trusting and safe environment for the client.

Mary is caring and has experience taking care of dogs. I am sure you will be completely satisfied with the dog sitting service Mary provides. My dog Ginger is a puppy with a lot of energy and Mary was patient and caring with Ginger.”
“Sharon is wonderful. She loves and really seems to understand dogs. Would definitely use her again cannot say enough good things about her.”
“Brittany is simply AMAZING! Just before our trip our big boy was diagnosed with a CCL injury so we had to adjust his care. With one highly energetic dog and the other with a lane leg, that can be challenging. The boys were in great hands with her and she kept me updated on any issues he was having. Additionally she took great care for our home. I can’t speak highly enough about how great she is!”
“David was gray with my dog Ginger. Ginger is a border Jack with lots of energy. Dave brought Ginger on lots of walks and provided a nurturing environment. Dave is patient and has the stamina to keep up with active dogs. The experience with Dave was top notch!”
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.
“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!”
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.
“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!”

About: Ever since I was little I loved taking care of all different animals. I have pet sat for multiple families with cats and dogs. I also volunteer at shelters to help animals in need. I have three dogs of my own, one living with me. I trained my dogs completely on my own, and one of them is trained to help with services. Pet care fits into my daily routine as I have one of my three dogs living with me. I take care of her daily with the help of my boyfriend. We go on walks multiple times a day, all over. She eats two times a day so we always make sure she is well fed! I currently reside in a condo, so walks are well needed as the backyard is not fenced in. There are multiple nearby hiking trails and paths to go on, or even just through the neighborhood! My dog is beyond friendly, but if you are more comfortable with her being away, I can do that as well! I am also 10 minutes away from a beach that will allow dogs very soon so I can also go there and have a doggy beach day.
“Nicole is amazing. I requested her to stay at our home and take care of our golden doodle for 6 days. Nicole is the perfect caregiver she gave such loving care with photos and videos sent a few times a day to make us feel at ease. Nicole made sure our Sophie was properly cared for took care of all her needs, provided great company with tons of exercise and attention. We could not be more happy with Nicole and her capabilities as a dog sitter. Thanks Nicole! Would be happy to endorse her amazing work and dedication to her assignment. Extremely happy with Nicole ?”
“Caitlin took great care of our fur babies, Eastwood (Great Dane) and Meishi (Kitty) for a week while we were in LA. The house was in perfect shape, and the of course Eastwood and Meishi seemed unfazed by our absence. The daily pictures and updates were greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend Caitlin and hope to use her services in the future.”
“I have known Marena for a few years now and she is hands down the most knowledgeable person I have ever met when it comes to all things dog. Marena adores dogs and will do absolutely anything she has to do to help them. I would trust Marena with my two dogs anyway!”
