Julie took such great care of our kitties, was right on time everyday, and loved on them just as much as we do. Now my only fear going on vacation is they'll want her to be their momma. Highly recommend Julie to care for your fur babies.

Melanie is the greatest! She is prompt, communicates well, follows instructions with no issues and most importantly sends updates with the cutest photos of our pups! I couldn’t recommend her more!

Meant to leave a review earlier, but I'm new to Rover. Amanda was great, I felt very comfortable having her check up on my cat. He didn't find my absence stressful at all.

Hannah helped us out on Christmas evening when we were going to be away from our house for 12 hrs. We so appreciated the extra mile Hannah went to come a week before Christmas to meet our dogs and speak with us personally so we would feel comfortable leaving our two greyhounds in her care for a bit. She communicate well and responded in a timely manner when we first were setting up the visit with her. We will definitely use Hannah again and absolutely recommend her services! Thanks again Hannah, you helped make our Christmas less stressful!

Emily did great with my dogs and I know she took excellent care of them. My babies can be a handful and she never once complained. She gives a lot of details in her communications and I really do like that. It puts me at ease knowing my babies are well taken care of

About: I’ve have had dogs since I was 12. For the last decade, I've been the go-to dog sitter and trainer among my family and friends. I love working with dogs regardless of age, size, or temperament. I will work with you to insure your pups have only positive experiences with me. I’m currently a stay at home dog dad. Your dog will be under supervision at all times and will have plenty of opportunities to play, go on walks, go to the park, and get *all* the pets. I have two well socialized dogs of my own. A 9 year old female German shepherd named Lucy and a 7 month old male border collie named Lincoln. We have a fenced yard, doggie splash pad, and small pool. We also make frequent trips to various dog parks and will with your permission of course. Your dog will be allowed full run of the house if temperament allows but we have several kennels and dog proof rooms if they need space to unwind on their own.

I would love to say how much I appreciate Hailey and all the work she does for me and my shepherd. I was really nervous about the whole process because I just moved here from California, My Nala has pretty bad anxiety, but I have not had to worry about anything at all while I’m at work because Hailey truly does have my back and she’s soo good with my German Shepherd. She sends me pictures of my baby girl while I’m at work which I love to see! She’s super commutative and really cares about her work and Animals and most importantly my Nala. I would recommend her to anyone who has a German Shepherd. She knows what she’s doing!

About: "Compassionate Canine Caretaker with a Special Touch" As a professional dog sitter, I bring a heartfelt passion and a specialized skill set to every wagging tail. My approach is rooted in the belief that every dog or cat deserves individualized care tailored to their age, personality, and needs. From energetic puppies to serene seniors, I provide a nurturing environment where they can thrive. Puppy Training: My expertise in puppy training sets me apart. I help shape the behaviors and manners of young dogs, ensuring they grow into well-behaved adults. Senior Dog Care: I have a soft spot for senior dogs and offer specialized care that addresses their comfort and health, making their golden years truly golden. Personalized Attention: I believe in quality over quantity. Each dog receives my undivided attention, with customized activities and care plans to suit their unique quirks and preferences. Peace of Mind: For pet parents, I offer the assurance that their beloved companions are in capable and caring hands. I'm not just a sitter—I'm a companion, a trainer, and a friend to your furry family member. I'm currently living a life of sobriety for 2 years now. I currently go to school, studying to get my Bachelors of Science in Music Production at Fullsail University. I'm a stay at home dad who's looking for something part time on the weekends to get out of the house. I'm a gentle giant at 6'6" and love everything Dog and Cat related. All Dogs and Cats love me. I will be sure to bring a smile on my face every time I get the chance to work for you.

About: I’ve been around dogs my whole life I helped raise my parents dog, a four year-old Australian Shepherd named Eddy. I’ve dog sit and watched family and friends dogs, majority of my life. I really enjoy getting exercise and spending quality time with other peoples dogs, being able to socialize with them, play with them and get as much joy from them as I can. Im free in the afternoons Monday- Sunday. Also evenings my schedule is flexible. I live in Chesterton dune land area. I’m a animal lover but dogs are my favorite animals in general. I’ve got experience with many different breeds. From behavioral training - teaching dogs how to do tricks. From bathing and waking running swimming, I’ve got experience working with aggressive rescue to watching multiple dogs. I’m eager to help them no matter what the situation calls for. Thanks -Kyle. I’m currently working part time so I have extra time to earn extra income doing something I really love. It’s truly a dream job for me. I helped rise my parents 4 year old Australian Shepherd, i trained my dog to stay in the proximity of the yard when he was six months old he does not need a leash when we go on walks he stays by my side or within 100 yards. I’m very fortunate that I trained him early on at a young age so he knows the perimeter of the yard. He’ll also sit an watch the other neighborhood. Dogs play. He does not go into the their yards. He just sits at the perimeter of my yard and watches them play This is one something I’m extremely proud of.

About: I trained my own dogs for 4-h for the past three years. I also work for a doggie daycare and boarding place for a year. I'm a college student so I'm free at random times. I can walk dogs and check up on dogs. I do have a flexible schedule and I can find a time that works best. I love my dogs like they are my family and I do spoil them a lot. I love training them and doing anything I can with them.
