Ileandra was so great during our meet and great, interacting with Chico and asking questions about his personality, routine, and exercise. She immediately put me at ease and made me feel he was in great hands. While I was away she did send updates and pictures and Chico seemed to have a great time getting to stay home and hang with her. Thank you!

Jo is amazing. We needed her to sit with our geriatric 14 year old dog. She spoiled him with love and affection...exactly what he needs these days! ALL over the Christmas holiday!! She was God sent!

This was Charlie’s first ‘real’ overnight without mom around and Caitlin was so patient with him (and his antics)! She kept me updated on how he was doing while I had to be away on work travel. This extra piece of mind is priceless!

Shawn has been an excellent pet sitter for my two nine-year-old Basset Hound/Australian Shepherd mixes for the last year. She and her daughters have walked, fed, paid attention to, and provided treats for my dogs about one weekend a month and the dogs love them all! Not only am I confident that I am giving my dogs the best care I can even when I am away, Shawn also send me photographic evidence and checks in regularly via text message. I wouldn't trust anyone more!

About: I have volunteered with animal rescues over the last five years. I have handled dogs of varying sizes, as well as cats. I have taken care of puppies at community events, and I have evaluated whether particular animals with their needs and wants would fit into a potential adopter's home. I have had cats and dogs all my life, but I have been the primary responsible person for my pets for ten years now. One of my dogs has allergies and requires sublingual meds twice a day. I have also given pills to both cats and dogs and had to follow strict dietary regimes. I work full-time Monday through Friday, so I am able to do pet care work Friday after work through Monday mornings. I do get an hour lunch, so I can come let dogs out for lunch on Mondays and Fridays if you are within fifteen minutes of my workplace. I can also do drop ins after work on weekdays, which may be preferred for cat care. I do not have space in my own home to watch your pets, so I will come to you. I do require a meet and greet for both our sakes, so I get to know you and your pets, and you get to know me before having me in your home without you there. I can scoop litter boxes, clean up pet messes, watch pets in a fenced yard, and walk small dogs and larger dogs (I can only walk larger dogs if they have good leash manners due to health reasons.). I will leave everything exactly as you left it.

I recently had Kaitlynn stay in my home for a week to care for my menagerie - and a can not say enough wonderful things about her. 10/10 - would hire and trust her 100% to care for my home & animals in the future. Highlights: - she is a great communicator and very prompt. - immediately showed genuine kindness and care to my animals upon meeting them. - has professional experience medicating and caring for high needs animals - one of my dogs is elderly and requires am/pm medication and monitoring for seizures/heart issues. - sent daily am/pm updates with cute photos and videos to check in which was so nice while I was away! - took the pups (and even my cat) on walks and adventures to keep them enriched. - followed directions and kept the dogs usual schedule. - even gave the pups a bath and brush upon request! - kept the house clean including some nice touches such as running the dishwasher, taking out trash, and pulling off the sheets before departing.** - everything was as I left it and the house was properly secure. When I returned, the animals were content, calm, no accidents, we’re eating well, and transitioned seamlessly as though I never left. **this is the best indicator I have that they have had excellent care while away.** I have had my two little ones for 13 years…believe me…I can tell when they have been distressed. I have worked in pet services most of my life (certified dog trainer & groomer), and I have extremely high standards and expectations for animal care. I rarely leave my animals alone - and I’ve never had someone stay in my home that I don’t know personally. Let me say, the peace of mind that comes with someone trustworthy is priceless! Thank you Kaitlynn ? - Love: Pixel, Ed, and Mochi

About: I've had dogs, cats, fish and other pets (small mammals) since I was about 7. I have worked with dogs of all sizes, and spent a year volunteering at a no-kill shelter. There I worked with dogs from many breeds and temperaments, and also cats, ranging from snuggly lap cats to feral strays. I am also experienced in giving animals oral medicine. I care deeply about every animal I provide for and come across, and love giving them attention whenever I can. I am currently an online student, as well as a mom of a young toddler. I would be able to make time for your pet throughout the day (with my daughter) or very early/late and in the middle of the day (without her), depending on your pet's needs. I care for pets in your home by loving on them, giving them exercise, and making sure they are properly fed and watered. I would either do this with my toddler along or left at home, depending on the time of day and your pet's needs.

We needed a pet sitter last minute due to our other option not working out. I found Aubrey and she was absolutely amazing! Our pups had a great time with her. She was respectful of our house and requirements and I can’t say more than great things about her. She even brought them treats and a toy! Thank you again and look forward to booking with you in the future.

She has the best heart and a very easy nature with all animals. She has experience in working with them and medical knowledge to boot. If you are looking for a reliable and safe solution when you need to go away. This is the perfect choice.

Abbey took great care of our 9 month old Great Dane (Isla) for 3 nights while we went away. This was the first time that we left our pup overnight and I was nervous to leave her, but it was such a relief to have Abbey watching her. Abbey sent pics and updates throughout the weekend so we were not stressed about Isla and knew she was getting lots of attention, play, and snuggles. I felt like Abbey was very considerate in that she stuck with Isla’s routine and also spent a lot of time with her (which meant a lot especially considering this is the first time we left her). We came home to a happy and healthy puppy so could not have asked for more! On top of that, Abbey clearly took good care of our house when staying there because it was left in excellent shape and looked exactly as it did when we left town. We are SO appreciate of Abbey and the peace of mind she gave us knowing that our dog was being cared for so well while we were gone.

About: I have owned dogs since I was a child. I currently have a German shepherd and an Anatolian shepherd, so I have experience with large breeds! I understand that our pets are part of the family, and I will take care of them like they are my own! My current work schedule is pretty flexible, so I am able to schedule drop ins or walks whenever is needed as long as I have a heads up! I have a fenced in yard that we walk our dogs around and play with them in. They are indoor dogs and we take them out at least 4-5 times a day to get their energy out!

Samantha took AMAZING care of our babies and our home. She sent lots of updates and photos giving us peace of mind. Our very shy cat even came out to get cuddles with Samantha. She left our house so clean as well! She made us some special homemade popcorn as a coming home gift. A very thoughtful added touch.we will definitely use Samantha again when we travel.

There is no one I would trust more with my own fur babies! MiKaela has a heart of gold filled with love for all animals. I have seen her with her own cats, dogs, and bunnies, and she really does take the best care of them. She constantly cuddles and spoils them, giving them the best life possible. I wholeheartedly believe she is a responsible and loving pet caregiver!
