Aleia was awesome. She sent us frequent photo updates of both our normally shy pets looking so happy and playful! We came home to happy pets and hope this is the first of many sits with Aleia!

Coleen has watched our pup a few times now and always goes above and beyond to make Saturn comfy and cared for, which in turn makes us feel comfy and cared for too while we’re away. Truly the best pet care we’ve experienced! Coleen will unequivocally be our first choice sitter for the indefinite future!

Sarah is the best. She is so patient, understanding and chill. She recognizes that Laika is a puppy and was able to curb his zoomies but also allow him to have fun. He’s always so happy to see her! And it’s heartening to see her be so loving towards him. I would love to have her over every time and trust her with Laika completely. She made sure I talked to her on the phone before coming so we were both comfortable and a good fit. Is very communicative and flexible.

Chris walked our dog for a week while our typical dog walker was out of town. He was very attentive to the instructions we left him and was very good about communicating how the walk was with our dog. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great dog walker!

Vesryn is great. She took care of our dog and bird while we were on vacation and stayed in our place. We got daily updates and photos and felt so taken care of. Will for sure book her more times for sure.

We made a last minute request for Mirella to watch our dog due to some recent medical issues and wanting her to stay at home while we were away. Mirella made it work for us which we were so grateful for that peace of mind! Not only did she help us out last minute but she also dealt with a leaking fridge and short power outage while we were gone. All terribly unfortunate timing while we were away but she handled it so calmly and went above and beyond in every way! We look forward to having Mirella come back and having hopefully an easier stay for her and our pup!

Katie was the absolute best! She went out of her way big time for us (she picked up our dog from our wedding), brought him home & stayed the night with him! She took the best care of him and we would not hesitate to have her watch him again!

Sydney did an awesome job watching our girl, Stella, over NYE. She was pleasant and super responsive and very kindly came to us to get keys and meet Stella in advance. During the stay, she sent multiple photos and updates and took great care of our pup and left our house spotless. We would happily book Sydney again!

I have known Emerald for over 10 years and she is a top-tier cat caretaker! She's kind and understanding of the fact cats come with very different needs and personalities, great with following instructions for care and schedules, and will often send photo updates. Whenever I've asked her to cat sit my now senior cats, each of which is very particular in the kind of attention they want (one is very stand-offish, the other extremely needy), I've been able to focus on my trips instead of worrying about their care. Emerald is such a wonderful cat butler it's a miracle I was allowed back into my own home. So if you want someone who loves cats, has great communication skills, and will take loving update photos of your animals, hire her!
