Lauren is really the only person I'd trust to watch my cats. She takes wonderful pictures and even my most nervous cat has come to trust her over time, which is a huge deal for him!

Our Buddy loves going to Jody's place, whether it's for a day or several. It's a natural setting for the dogs to stay and play and Jody takes excellent care of our pet. Highly recommended!

I used to have my kids petsit when I’d leave town but I was constantly worrying about if they’d fed and watered my cats and they’d never scoop the litter boxes. Hailey provided safe, loving care and great housesitting services when caring for my two cats while I was on vacation. She cleaned the litter boxes every day. She sent pictures every other day and called to make sure I made it home safely before stopping drop-in visits to my pets. I will be booking again next time I go out of state.

I highly recommend Ali’s services. I was looking for a sitter who not only loves my cats as her own but understands subtle changes in their health during my vacation. One of my cats is over 12 years old so I needed a sitter with veterinary skills and knowledges. I am glad that I have chosen Ali for my cats and will ask her again for next vacations. Her services are beyond my expectations.

Amy is wonderful pet sitter. She is very responsible and punctual. Amy asked a lot of details about my cat and how to care about him. It was very easy to communicate with her - she sent a report about each visit (with photos) and responded promptly and in detail. I recommend her as a pet sitter.

Heidi was easy to work with, a great communicator and came to our rescue with less than 24-hour notice. She was punctual, made sure our pup went potty and got some quality playtime - she even sent some photos! ? We had peace of mind knowing Paisley was in Heidi's care.

Kiah watches my dog Rufus, an American Staffordshire Terrier mixed with a Boxer. He absolutely adores her and she is so good with him! It’s nice to be able to drop off Ru and trust he's in good care. I would recommend Kiah to any fellow dog owners!

About: I love any and all cats and dogs I currently am studying Biology in college… to be what? Currently undetermined but what I do know is that I want my career to be with animals! Growing up I used to tape my dogs feet with toilet paper whenever they limped, and that’s where the care began! In the past I went with my sister to take care of her clients when she was on Rover as well. When I got older, I cared for my dads’ coworker’s 3 dogs and loved them all! I helped distribute their medicine and kept them occupied. I have also cared for my neighbor’s dogs as well. While I do not have as much pet experience as many of the people on here, I have no doubts on giving the best care! I look forward to taking care of any pet big or small and I appreciate you trusting me with your most loved family member, because dogs/cats aren’t pets! They’re family and I promise you that your family will be well taken care of with cuddles and treats! Pet care fits into my daily routine because I am home from college and moved here a little over 2 years ago. I am an introvert so I would rather hangout with animals! I work at a nature center from 9-5 a few days a week so other than that I am open! I bathe, walk (sometimes run) and feed my dog Katana! I believe it forms a bond with the animal and helps her to realize that they are safe and in good hands.

About: I’m ready to take care of your fur babies needs. I also am a ball python owner and know how to take care of bps! Please feel free to look at my history! Recent August 2023 - A few hours noticed a neighbor needed my pet watching service. I watch Sophia and Shadow (Labrador’s) so that their owners could go to there nieces dance show! I played with them outside at their house all fenced in area. Lots of pets and made sure to feed them the correct food and portion! May 2023 - watched 4 Dogs each with their own food needs and had to place the bowls in different rooms. Lots of petting and napping together. I let them outside because they were all fenced in. The owners were gone for a week on vacation! April 2023 - Just watched two cats while the owners went on vacationing. I made sure that all their bowls were filled, watered and lots of pets and talked to them. 24+ years old - I’ve always watched my friends dogs and cats. my parents have a collie again (Waylon 100 pounds) and a ragdoll (Wyatt 12 pounds). I babysit them frequently and both trained like a dog, smart, fun, and loving their fur baby life!. Yes, Wyatt sits with hand signal. I’ve always loved to train. 23 years old - I volunteered at a humane society. I was recognized for my work. I walked 18 dogs by myself in the winter at times. I did this for a year and a half. 10 years old - had a collie (Orion) and cat ( Milo). I trained the family dog all kinds of commands and milo would join us for walks. I miss them. I currently work as a freelancer and would like to fill my life with the outdoors and walk your dog! I’m always at the screen and want a second job. I follow instructions if I’m staying at the clients home. Please feel free to type up your perfect sheet of instructions so I may know exactly how to take care of your fur babies.

About: I have always loved pets and loved taking care of them. I am now a junior in college, majoring in biology in hopes of taking care of animals. I enjoy even the most mundane parts of caring for animals, such as feeding them, taking them on walks, or even picking up poop (I know, it’s weird!); being able to play and cuddle with them is a perk! I work part time with a pretty loose schedule, so I am able to be pretty lenient with my schedule and taking care of your pet. I love to greet the dog by petting them as I walk in the door. After that I let them outside because they will most likely have to go. Once they’re done I check to see if they are running low on food or water and if they made a mess in the house. If they did I clean it up and then play/cuddle with the pet, whatever they’re most comfortable with.

Kayla took great care of my cats when I was out of town. I think she has more experience with dogs but did a wonderful job with my 3 cats. Two of them needed oral medications, which is not easy to do. I was sent lots of pics and updates and felt at ease knowing they were looked after. I would recommend Kayla, she was responsible, flexible, and most importantly she was kind.
