“John has housesat for my cat and dog twice now, once for a weekend and once for a 10 day trip. No problems at all, my pets love him, and I will hire him again. Thanks so much!”
About: I have been taking care of pets since college, where my roommates and I were active Rover dog walkers and boarders. Out of care for my cat, Memphis, I cannot host pets in my home, but I have experience walking, feeding, playing with, snuggling, and giving medication to dogs and cats of all ages! I am an avid runner, so if your pup loves burning off steam by going on a run, just let me know! I am a clinical student, so my schedule varies, but I am usually available for morning and evening drop-ins, with more flexibility on weekends. I will never commit to a drop-in without confirming that I will have time to give your pet the care and attention they deserve. I pride myself on my professionalism, integrity, and transparency. I understand that leaving your pet and your home in the care of a stranger can be anxiety-inducing, and I enjoy building long-term relationships and trust with my clients. Your pet's safety and happiness is my utmost priority!
“Parker was awesome in every way- responsible, responsive, kind, thoughtful and thorough! He took excellent care of the dogs and the house! We will definitely call upon him again to sit my dogs. I highly recommend him to you!”
“Julia is a communicative, responsive and loving sitter. She took excellent care of my high-maintenance dog while I traveled abroad for an extended period of time. She put my anxiety about the process to bed within the first couple of days. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.”
“Very professional, responsive, and friendly. Will definitely book with Miguel again! Thank you Miguel!!!”
“Erin was great! Sent pics and videos of her playing with Penny made my day:)”
“Emma watched our dogs and house for 5 nights and was absolutely fabulous! She is responsive and pleasant to speak with. She clearly cares deeply for animals and is very knowledgeable. She was attentive to the needs of both our senior dog and puppy. We got tons of cute pictures during our trip which made me feel at ease when so far away. We will definitely be calling Emma again for our next trip!”
“My dogs love Kira. She cared for my 3 dogs and cat for a week, walking the dogs in snow, ice and mud. She had to put little sweaters on and off the dogs, wipe off 12 paws, and deal with their frisky, jumping up. I found her to be caring, responsible, communicative and tidy. I would highly recommend her.”
“Zoe is so kind, flexible and bright. An excellent communicator and was clearly an animal lover, I got a very good report from our cat! Will look forward to having her take care of our pets in the future, with absolute confidence.”
“Yesterday was our second time to have Kyle watch our two West Highland Terriers. Kyle was great. He checked in with us often and made us feel that our dogs were being taken well care of. I highly recommend Kyle!! He arrives on time, takes our dogs out a lot for walks and sends a lots of pictures to. Our dogs were happy and nicely tired when we arrived home!😃”
About: Growing up with dogs, I've always had a love for taking care of and making sure all dogs - big or small - feel loved, safe, and comfortable. At my previous place of work, I often watched my coworkers dogs in their homes while they were away. Whether its couch snuggles or early morning walks, I'm here for it! My ability to really listen to and hear what a dog needs sets me apart from other sitters; I firmly believe that there is so much more to a dog than people give them credit. They are such intelligent individuals with a raw sense of joy that it would be an absolute honor to get to spend time watching your furry friend! I'm currently in-between jobs so my flexible schedule allows for lots of walk and play time! While my current place of living does not allow for pets, I am more than comfortable taking care of pets in their own homes while owners are away. I feel grateful to have this carved out time to make sure the safety and comfort of your beloved dog(s) is of highest importance! As I mentioned, I cannot currently offer boarding surfaces -- but I am eager to help out and take care of a pet in a client's home (check-ins/overnights). Not only will I be respectful of the space itself, but I will also be sure to attune to the needs of the dog in their home as I am a guest while I am there. This includes learning all necessary information head of time about the home, how to access needed things, and asking any lingering questions so that there is no question of your pet's comfort and safety in your time away.
“Great job taking care of our pup!”
“Rhiana was amazing! This was my first time leaving my puppy with a sitter and I was anxious about it, but she was so wonderful with sending updates and pictures that I felt incredibly comfortable! Rhiana was super understanding about my anxiety and handled the craziness that comes with my two babies so well. Would definitely recommend her again and again!”
“Samuel is an awesome pet sitter. He was very responsive in answering any questions we had and asking questions about Luna to make sure everything went smoothly. He kept us updated with texts and photos, which was very reassuring. Definitely will not hesitate to book with him again.”
“We were so lucky to have found Meredith when we first got our puppy, Waffle. She helped us immensely with raising her into the well trained dog she is today with consistent training and a kind touch! Because of Meredith’s experience as a vet tech we always felt comfortable leaving Waffle with her. She always provided a safe and nurturing environment and was flexible whenever we needed her. We highly recommend Meredith, we couldn’t have made it this far without her!”
“Olivia did a fantastic job taking care of our dogs. She was very communicative with daily updates and pictures and we came back to both the dogs and the house in great shape. We will definitely work with Olivia again!”
“Jacob did an outstanding job caring for our older dog. He stayed in our home for two weeks while we were out of the country. He left the house in immaculate condition. Jacob gave Mr. Ruggles regular walks and lots of attention. Jacob is responsible, communicates well, responded to our questions promptly and clearly had genuine affection for our dog. We would highly recommend Jacob for in-home dog sitting. We had tremendous peace of mind during our vacation knowing that our pet was getting great care. We came home to a happy, healthy dog and a spotless home. Win-win for all.”
About: I’ve pet sat for a few different people over the years, I’ve had my own animals since I was 8 years old. I used to want to be a vet tech (still do sometimes) and anything with fur is sure to make me smile. Currently I’m a nanny during the weeks and possibly on weekends but I get my schedule two months in advance and am willing to work with the right fit I live close to a dog park, I have animals of my own so I’d treat them just the same (with love and compassion) we have access to a small area for potty breaks.

“Morgan was everything we were looking and more! Kind, courteous, and clearly an animal lover at heart! We have two large, crazy dogs and she was confident yet gentle with them from the moment they greeted her at the door. Our 16 year old cat who doesn’t come out for many people warmed up to her quickly too. We wouldn't hesitate to have her come stay with our animals again!!”
