“My 4 animals were well taken care of by John Michael. (2 dogs and 2 cats) Everyone was happy and I think missed John Michael when I got home. I am pretty sure he left my home cleaner than when he arrived. Next time I need a dog/house sitter I'll be in touch. Thank you!”
“She is great, she allowed us to enjoy our trip without worry using her again for when going out of town.”
“My first experience with this service, and Sydney made it a wonderful one. I felt confident my doggie was being cared for, and that meant I could relax. Sydney sent updates and pictures too.. Thank you Sydney!”
“Left my 4 month puppy overnight, she was awesome and kept me posted and sent me pictures.. definitely will hire Crystal again.. thank you Crystal!”
“Jaden is amazing and has taken great care of my animals. We utilized her for both dog walking and pet sitting and she has done an amazing job with both. She always makes sure to sends us updates and lots of beautiful pictures of our animals. She is quick to respond and has been really great about last minute needs and service requests. Our dog and cat love her and we will continue to rebook with her for all our pet needs.”
About: I’ve taken care of a wide range of animals (mainly farm animals) I’ve volunteered at horse and donkey rescue farms so I’ve got to be with many dogs, horses, pigs, cows, & zebra hah. I like training puppies mostly because it’s a really hilarious experience since they are goofy, my pup is still in training herself. I have had 3 senior dogs personally, two have passed due to age and the third is still going on at about 16yrs (probably more since he was a stray hah) but I give him lots of supplements and have him on his own diet that’s very strict so I’m familiar with puppy feeding schedules as well as senior. Pretty easily I’d say I’m a morning person due to my job of working overnights, 9am feedings and afternoon is around 4-5pm, we go to a local park 5 days out of the week for about an hour or two (mainly until my pup is tired) and play fetch to let her stretch her legs, we go on hikes when the weather is good for the both of us as well (no burning paws around here with the hot pavement or dirt!) We usually let them roam (if potty trained) I have one indoor cat that bounces off the walls since he’s very energetic, my other cat is an outdoor kind of gal, she was a stray when I found her so she prefers outside over anything. I have a big yard I’m not sure the measurements but it’s about 40-45ft wide, good amount of space for a GSD, but I have to occupy her with a finding treat game or a hide treat to chew on since she does tend to rip branches off my tree (she’s happy with her talent but it’s very messy) I like to keep my eye on them. Especially if rules apply to others homes then I will respect it, no bad behavior in the house! I keep small objects or anything that looks like a dog or cat can ingest away or thrown out
“Angeline is awesome! She took care of our cat and our elderly desert tortoise during our 11 day summer vacation. She made it her priority to ensure our pets and home were well taken care of. Angeline provided daily check ins with us along with cute pictures. She went beyond our expectations especially when faced with the uncertainty of the tropical storm Hillary and the safety of our desert tortoise. She is kind, thoughtful, and responsive. I highly recommend Angeline for pet sitting needs. She will care for your pets as if they were her own.”
“Noah is amazing!! Our Shih Tzu Sugarbear loves him. We will tell her “Noah’s coming” and she’ll run and sit by the door until he comes over. I highly recommend him!!”

About: Anyone can say they love dogs. Dogs are just so easy to love. But not everyone an say that they can give dogs the love and care that they deserve. What sets me apart from other pet sitters is my attention to detail. About 5 years ago, my dog Toto developed cataracts in his eyes and needed surgery so retain his sight. After his eye surgery, he needed several different eye drops every day to maintain his vision and keep his eyes healthy. For 5 years, I have made sure that his eyes received the medication they needed so that he can remain the spunky, lazy, happy dog that he is. I have also often taken care of my previous neighbor's elderly dog who also needed regular, scheduled medication. Without fail, he received his medication on time, even if I did have to wrap them up in a treat. If you want peace of mind when you have to leave your furry friends for a while, I'll provide the care that you need and they deserve! I am currently working full time (8am-5pm) but I can make short visits in between my work hours if needed. I am also available after 5pm on days that I am needed. I am always willing to tailor my services based on what your needs are. Whether you pet is a finicky eater, a shy one in the bathroom, or just needs regular medication, I can make sure your pet's quirks are well taken care of so that you don't have to worry while you are gone. I also provide regular photo updates along with my services so that you can be assured that your furry friends are happy, healthy, and thriving!
“Juliann was great with our dog. She played her favorite game (multiple times), keep away, took her for walks and even a drive…Dioji loves to go for a ride.t Thank you Juliann for helping us on our first big trip away from Dioji.”
“Elisa went above and beyond when caring for my dog. She helped work us into her busy schedule and was very flexible with us considering that the hours worked were a bit lengthy. She helped work out a plan that would benefit her and my furry friend. My dog loved spending time with Elisa and didn’t show any signs that he had been upset when in her care. It was also nice to receive a photo of her and my dog during his time with her. I would definitely recommend her to a friend and would be willing to rebook if I ever needed a sitter again.”
“Wonderful home and pet sitter. Sent us photos of our cat and dog frequently and replied to all our messages quickly. I'll definitely use her services again next time we are out of town. Thank you, Jill!”
“If I have to go out of town, Jennia will come to my house to feed my pup, Rico and my cat, Skitty Monroe. I give her access to my house to stop in to feed them twice a day with play time each visit. My furbabies love her. She is very gentle and kind with a heart that loves animals. She is sure to send videos and pictures of Rico and Skitty which helps me to be at ease knowing that they are well taken care of.”
“Atlas was amazing for our dogs! He took great care of them and was an excellent communicator with us. Highly recommend!”
About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“Coming from the Veterinary field, Eva works extremely well with animals. For short while, I lived with Eva and many times did she babysit my troublesome cat, Teddy. Eva did make sure to feed him twice a day, made sure he had fresh water and gave him lots of TLC. Normally, Teddy is very antisocial with everyone except for me but Teddy made an exception with Eva.”
About: I have had animals ever since I was young. I have pet sat multiple times over my adult years just to help out my friends or family. I trained my parents dog, my families dog. I have no issue training an a dog while having them with me. I am a full time student and a full time mom, but all of my classes are online so I have open availability. My son and I love all animals. I am a single mother so trust doesn’t come easily. But you have to give trust so you can get trust. Everything is reciprocated. I have no issue meeting ahead of time to make sure that you as the doggy parents to make sure I am someone you’d like to have around your furbaby or fur babies.
