“Candice is so wonderful, kind, and respectful! She regularly helps me with my dog during the week while I am at work. I have a somewhat strict training protocol I want to follow with my dog, and Candice is respectful of it. She is experienced with dogs and quickly learned the training steps! She is reliable and very communicative. I don’t worry about my pup at all when he is in Candice’s care!”
“Nick is the definition of a dog person. As a lifelong dog owner with over 5 years of professional dog-walking and -caretaking experience, any dog is in great hands when with Nick. He and I worked together as dog walkers for many years, and Nick has also cared for my dog. He not only has a great instinct for how to communicate with and hold dogs' attentions, but also quite simply, he gives them loving and thoughtful care in his work. Highly recommend.”
“Kaitlin checked in on our two cats while we were away for three weeks. She played with our very active cat and tired him out enough that he didn't tear up anything around the house. She was also able to entice our other very nervous kitty out to play. The cats were perfectly set with food, water, and litter the whole time she was taking care of them. She even indulged our active kitty on a walk, which we have never trusted a pet sitter to do before. She managed to keep him safe and occupied while he sniffed around the neighborhood and climbed trees. She sent us some very cute pictures of their adventure. Kaitlin has also been working in vet medicine for several years. Our cats luckily did not have any health problems while she was taking care of them, but we felt comfortable leaving them with her if something did come up. We also asked her some vet questions we had been wondering about and she had very helpful answers. Overall, she went above and beyond taking care of our cats.”
“Walker is great. He is a responsible and loving pet owner and caregiver, always puts the animals first. Your animals are in great and loving hands with Walker, you can trust him to the MAX.”
“Alexis was great and made themself available at short notice. Alexis was responsive, communicated effectively and was attentive to our dogs needs. Alexis made me feel at ease knowing my doggo was being cared for. I would highly recommend Alexis to anyone with animal care needs!”
“Jennifer has taken wonderful care for both of my dogs. When my dog Anakin was sick with a brain tumor, I hired Jennifer to come walk him but also spend time with him so he wasn’t so alone while I was away at work. Jennifer has an amazing love and understanding with dogs and would highly recommend her. Now that I have a new dog, Jennifer has helped me out with walks and house sitting and she is trustworthy, sends updates and pictures, and is good left my place is perfect condition.”
“April was absolutely amazing with our pup!! She was so good at communicating and sent us cute pup updates and photos. We were away on our honeymoon and needed someone to let her out mid day. We missed her so much so seeing photos really eased our minds. April is a gem and we definitely will be asking for her help in the future ♥️♥️”
“Shelly was available right away to walk my dog while I was stuck at work. She responded quickly to me and took care of my dog really well. I highly recommend Shelly!”
“Leila will take care of your pet like her own. Her home is set up well for both dogs and cats, and she takes the time to accommodate to your pet when needed. She communicates well throughout the whole pet sitting process and ensures your pet is safe and sound.”
“Liz has cared for my dog, Luna, many times and is absolutely wonderful with her. I can’t recommend Liz enough - I would highly recommend her to care for your pup. I have always found her to be really detailed about understanding each animal and very capable of catering to Luna’s specific needs. She is able to form a strong connection and meet Luna where she’s at. She’s great at incorporating lots of training and lots of love into her interactions with dogs. Your dog is guaranteed a safe and cuddle-heavy environment with Liz!”
“No exaggeration, Patrick is a bona fide cat whisperer. He thoroughly understands cat behavior and temperament. He is extremely patient with timid cats and can play with kittens for hours. I think he may even dream about cats. He adores them and they adore him.”
“Adam took our Golden Retriever Kobe on two walks. He was great. Kobe was being a little difficult on his second walk, and Adam was very patient and even stayed to play with him for the last 20 minutes when he didn’t want to walk anymore.”
“Michelle was awesome! She was reliable and a great communicator. She took great care of our dog Bodie, and took some awesome photos of him as well!”
About: As an experienced pet lover, your furry friends will receive the utmost attention tailored to their unique needs. Ensuring a comfortable and joyful experience under my care. I work full time, but on my off days I have plenty of time to spend with your furry friend! I'm available for walks and drop-ins on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. For drop-ins and walks, I focus on providing attentive and personalized care. During drop-ins, I ensure pets receive their meals, refresh water bowls, and enjoy some playtime or companionship. On walks, safety and enjoyment are prioritized, with leashed strolls tailored to their energy levels. I aim to make these visits a positive experience, meeting both their physical and emotional needs.
“Ladonna would be an excellent caregiver. She adores animals; and they are drawn to her; and why wouldn't they? Animals are believed to be instinctual beings, and they know a kind and generous person. I have never known her to mistreat any animal; I have only known her as a lover of animals. I know she would excel at this position.”
“Donald has been great with all pets I've ever seen him with. He's amazing with cats; incredibly patient and kind with the shyest cats. He's watched my cat several times when I'm out of town and I know he spends the extra time to hang out and do what my cat loves! He's also so responsive with reactive dogs. He's a former dog foster who has dealt with all sorts of behaviors in the past. He's really calm and keeps an eye on all dog situations.”
“Becca was fantastic! Clearly loves dogs and quickly made friends with my shy one. Always on time, great communication, and wonderful photos of my dog. I will continue to use her whenever I need a dog walker.”
About: I've taken care of foster dogs and cats off and on since college 20 years ago in addition to pet sitting for friends and neighbors. I have extra experience with senior and under-socialized cats. I primarily work as a personal trainer in San Francisco a few mornings a week and often have extra free time in the afternoons, evenings and when clients travel. I can't think of a better use of free time than spending it with dogs and cats while making sure they get the care they need. I love to travel so I know what a huge relief it is to have my pets well taken care of when I'm away. I take the care of my and my clients' fur babies as seriously as I would skin babies. I consider pets to be included in the family unit. I know routines are very important and comforting to most animals and therefore strive to follow given instructions as closely as possible.
“Sophie is a wonderful dog walker. She really cares about Toby and takes extremely good care of him. He’s always excited when she comes to get him, and he comes home well exercised and content. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
“Vanessa has kept my dog many times, and is also is heavily involved in animal fostering. She’s trustworthy, and works from home (so your pup or cat won’t have long periods alone)… highly recommend!”
