Cori and Jamie are the best! We have two Golden Retrievers who were treated wonderfully while we were away. They took special care to follow our instructions and gave so much attention to our fur babies. We are so glad to have dog sitters who really care and we can trust while away.

Crystal was absolutely amazing and our Reese, Rubi, and River were in wonderful hands! Crystal is communicative, asks questions and sends numerous updates and photos/videos. She made us feel 100% secure leaving our three dogs, and was completely understanding and tuned into each of their individual and unique needs. She was wonderful with our senior chihuahua mix with some special health needs, our feisty three-year old German Shepard mix, and our very very anxious senior Olde English mix. She made the time to come out and meet them before booking and make sure we were all comfortable. She is super flexible and left our home immaculate. We hope to have her watch our furbabies again soon! Thanks Crystal 🙂

An absolutely exceptional dog sitter! Our pup had an incredible time and received exceptional care. The frequent photo updates were delightful and highlighted the devoted attention and affection given to our furry friend. Organizing playtime for our pup with a furry companion was an absolute delight. Since our little girl adores playtime with other pups and is the only one at home, this was a special treat, especially with the weather getting colder. It truly brightened her day to have this social time. Our furry one returned home overwhelmingly happy and pleasantly exhausted from all the excitement. This experience was truly outstanding and highly recommended for anyone seeking top-tier care for their beloved pet! Additionally, the sitter accommodated our last-minute request and went above and beyond in ensuring our puppy's comfort, resulting in her increased happiness. We're undoubtedly returning clients; my little Autumn is thrilled, and that alone brings me immense joy. This woman is an absolute gem—professional, kind-hearted, and highly recommended! A solid 10/10!

This was our first time using Eliza and we will definitely be using her again. Our cats are usually pretty sad when we're away for more than a day but we could tell she gave them lots of love and affection because they were very happy when we got home. She sent us lots of cute pictures and kept us updated while we were gone too!!

Jessi was the greatest dog sitter we have had through this app! Seriously an amazing kind soul and person. She sent us pictures the whole time! My dogs were so happy when I got home, my house was cleaned, and she even changed my wax cubes!! One of my dogs came from a rough home, and doesn’t take easily to strangers, but she worked to win him over and they became best buds! Will definitely use her for all future trips!!

Michele was wonderful with my, separation anxiety beagle Toby. She spent the day at my house, taking care of Toby even taking him for a Starbucks happy puppy ice cream. Toby and I will look forward to using Mechelle services again.

About: My family has owned several dogs since I was a child and I have helped take care of them since I was about 12 years old. I also gained a good amount of experience working at the local SPCA for 2 summers, where I learned about proper dog walking, bathing, nutrition, and cleaning methods for both dogs and cats. I am also currently taking an online dog trainer certification program through Animal Behavior College and worked in a Veterinary Practices program as a Teaching Assistant for 1 year. I have been dog and cat sitting for family and friends for over 4 years and love animals of all kinds. I can care for rabbits, ferrets and guinea pigs as well! I look forward to meeting your pets and giving my clients peace of mind while they are away! :) I currently still work as a GED Teacher Monday-Friday, 5 days a week from 8 AM to 3 PM. I am free on weekends and during school holiday breaks in December, February, and April. I am also out of work for most of the week during summer break in July and August. During the school year, I can check on your pets on weekdays in the evenings, within reason. On weekends, I am available for overnight pet sitting. Please contact me for more detailed availability, as it is subject to change. I meet with the owner(s) and pets prior to house sitting to ensure their animals and I are familiar with one another and I am informed of each pet's individual needs. I try to ensure dogs get at least 2 walks a day, unless otherwise specified by the owner and depending on the breed. I try to make sure all animals have both breakfast and dinner, every day, and prioritize this. Potty breaks should be given every 4-6 hours at the most, again depending on the age, size and special needs of the dog. It is not possible for me to board dogs at this time. I've also found that dogs are more comfortable in their own homes. I can gladly send you pictures of the dogs and cats (if the cats aren't hiding) so you know they're doing okay (many clients have asked me to do this). Please discuss your pets' needs with me and leave care instructions in some format, either on notes that I take after meeting with you or in writing while you are away, preferably in advance.

About: My love for pets is what sparked me to enter the wonderful world of pet sitting. I have a chunky wiener dog of my own. I am currently a stay at home parent, so I’ll have plenty of time to play with the pups! I’m available weekdays and weekends. Feel free to message me about any concerns. I have a fenced yard and a friendly wiener dog to keep your fur babies company. I can easily provide a care if needed. Please let me know if it’s anything I can do to make your pets feel more comfortable.

About: I’ve been pet sitting since 2020, I can care for all kinds of breeds. I just recently moved here but back home I regularly cared for a boxer and a pug from a family friend! I’ll take real good care of your fur babies! I’m currently not working so I’ll have plenty of time to care for your fur babies. My husband is gone most of the day working as well so I have a lot of free time! I live in a studio but have plenty of room to take your babies outside and walk around the square. I have two dogs of my own. They’re really friendly and get along with other dogs so they can all play together.

About: I have lived with animals my entire life! Currently I have a dog and a cat. My dog is a 2.5 year old beagle and my cat is about 5 years old and he's a grey long haired cat. They both get along great (at times) and I love having them in my life. I have had experience with administering medications to dogs and cats, administering insulin to dogs, bottle feeding puppies, taking care of litters of puppies, teaching commands, mentally stimulating both dogs and cats and making sure they are physically stimulated as well. I do it daily with my own but I am a full time student at the moment. I have classes both online and in person but I only go in person a few days a week so I have lots of time to take care of your animals. I do not offer in home but when I am in a clients home I treat it and their animals as if they are my own. I go and do the job that I am there to do without causing any problems.

About: I’ve taken care of animals since I was a kid. I currently have a dog. I’m trained in teaching your dog in basic puppy education. Neighbors have relied on me to bathe and walk their dogs. I currently am Active Duty, but I am home pretty often between morning PT, lunch, and completely home after work. I monitor my dog using my in home camera when I’m away and 100% when in person. I’m also in college so I’m typically home when I’m not working. I have a fenced yard for animals when they want to play outside. I have a kennel for those that are crate trained. I’m able to provide your animals medications if needed or perform CPR.

About: I have experience with dogs my entire life from daily care routine to caring for senior dogs. Your member of the family would be treated very well and we are able to care for dogs that require special attention. Your dog would not go more than 2-4 hours without someone supervising them. I would make sure your animal is safe. The world class care your fur baby would get would be unmatched. My doggies are literally spoiled but well behaved. They are sweet so there will be plenty of attention and exercise for your loved one. ❤️❤️❤️

About: I am recently retired from active duty and love being around pets! I am doing this to be able to be around dogs more! Your pets will get all the care and need possible! I am available at most times currently! If you live close enough I would not mind watching your dog for an extended time period! Your dog will get the best care possible! I will exercise them everyday and make sure they are loved like they’re my own! Just having the ability to be around a dog will make myself happy! You will not have to worry about your dog while you are away! They will be greatly taken care! I want to be able to help those that work all the time and don’t want their pup stuck inside all day! I am looking to fit this more and more into my daily and weekly routines as I am finding myself with more free time since being retired early from active duty. I have lots of open space, or love to take the pups to the dog park as long as they get along with other pups. Spend as much time as possible with them! Give them the attention they deserve
