CJ took care of our two dogs at our house over the weekend and did a fantastic job. He is a great communicator, followed our instructions to the letter, took great care of the pups and left the house spotless. He even washed the sheets and remade the bed. We highly recommend him and will definitely use him again. Thanks CJ!

Sage is my retired Service Dog and has not left my side for 5.5 years. I have been terrified of being apart. However the opportunity arose to have a night away. I found Ghazaal who put me at ease. Just before leaving, I got sick Ghazaal rearranged her calendar to help both Sage and myself out. Couldn't recommend anyone else who is more caring, respectful, and reliable.

Kavya exceeded all of our expectations - and then some! This was our first time away from our puppy for more than a few hours and Kavya made sure it felt like we were right there with him, sending pictures and updates multiple times each day. She also thoughtfully cared for our two cats and six chickens — an entire menagerie to manage! Our home was left spotless and our instructions were followed to the letter. We could not recommend Kavya enough and will be calling her again anytime we travel. 10/10 experience.

Stephanie stayed at our house with our two cats during a holiday week. She was beyond fantastic! Throughout the week, she sent us adorable snapshots and videos and kept us in the loop about their funny shenanigans. She also made easy work of a complicated refrigerated auto-feeder setup we have one of our cats on. We returned to a spotless home! Our two cats were not just cared for but clearly loved. Stephanie's competence and warmth made our vacation worry-free. Couldn’t more highly recommend!

Trina and her dog cubby were excellent while taking care of our very energetic and sometimes anxious dog. Reliable, sent lots of photos, and our dog seemed very comfortable with her and cubby. Would definitely book again with her.

Austin was incredible, I highly recommend using Austin for house/dog sitting! He kept us up to date with pictures and texts throughout his stay. He clearly loves dogs and understands how to care for them. He is extremely capable and goes above and beyond to make sure he is doing all he can for your pets and your house. He made us feel 100% comfortable leaving our three dogs for a week. You can't go wrong with Austin!

I was away for 5 days and Malena stayed at my house with my dog Olaf. She did a great job during those days taking him for walks, feeding it and loving him of course. She was so gentle and patient with him. Olaf really likes her and every once in a while she loves to take him for a walk too. I totally recommend her to take care of any pet.

Courtney is a wonderful pet care taker. She is passionate, knowledgeable and reliable. My cats and dog love Courtney. Even my shy cat comes out when Courtney is around. She is the type of person that loves greeting any animal on a walk and is very respectful. I trust her with my three fur children.

Colleen was so wonderful, we can’t wait to have her back and highly recommend her. She helped us with a semi-last minute weekend trip with our dog. She communicated with us perfectly, asked great questions, sent photos, and we came home to a happy pup and a clean house. Thanks Colleen!

Jake took care of my two cats for 4 days and three nights. He did a great job, checking in with us frequently. He treated Stella like royalty and was diligent in trying to establish a bond with Linus but he is still pretty feral. We are super happy with Jake and he is definitely on our list of pet/house sitters.

Alexis was very thoughtful and diligent in her approach to caring for our pups. She went above and beyond to give them lots of exercise time outside and play time inside. She also kept us updated on each dog’s status, so we could discuss any potential changes in care that might be helpful. We look forward to having Alexis look after the pups again soon (and I know they’d love future opportunities for cuddle time with her!)
