Sarah was outstanding with my nervous pooch, welcoming him into her home and making him FEEL safe and comfortable. Communicative, with lots of pictures. Would highly recommend and use again in a heartbeat.

Dax was so accommodating when I needed help boarding my dog, Bia, on short notice. Bia, can be a little anxious and high maintenance but when I got her back I think she was sorry to be leaving!

Jessica was terrific with Nemo; took him on walks and played with him endlessly. Nemo was so happy such that he did not appear thrilled to leave - he was a dog on vacation! I will definitely book Jessica again if I’m in Portland. Thanks for taking care of Nemo!

Rose was incredible! She sent multiple picture and video updates everyday, took my pup on adventures, and was excellent at communicating. I will definitely be utilizing Rose in the future.

Yuki was so great with our dog, Sadie! Her apartment is perfectly set up to welcome a dog and had toys at the ready. She kept Sadie entertained while we discussed her routine and needs. We felt very relieved to have found Yuki for Sadie's overnight care and we got some happy pictures of her while we were away. Yuki was very communicative and we appreciated her flexibility on timing of the drop offs and pick up. We look forward to having Yuki care for Sadie again. Thank you!

My dog can be hard to handle in the wrong situations, but Emily put in care to make sure that those were avoided and it was easy to tell Lilah appreciated her stay. Hands on, caring, and in-town, I will definitely recommend Emily again.

I needed someone to watch my cat at the last minute, and Stephen was absolutely wonderful! Stephen was so kind and responsive, and I knew my cat was in good hands. I got updates throughout and I was able to adjust my pickup time when ciecumsstances changed. I would recommend Stephen to anyone!

Ashton took such good care of my elderly dog, Auby! She is a true dog lover with a lot of experience and will treat your pet like her own. I received frequent updates while away. Auby loved being able to romp around their big back yard and snuggle up with her daughter. I would definitely recommend Ashton for your pet sitting needs.

Alison is fantastic! My dog Porter had such a great time with her. Her communication, willingness to run/exercise with Porter, and her flexibility was wonderful. Such a relief to know that my dog is comfortable and enjoying himself hanging out with Alison as much as I enjoyed my vacation! Highly recommend!

Elizabeth is awesome! We left our chihuahua with her for about 2 weeks while we were out of town, and we felt so comfortable knowing our little baby was in such a loving home, with someone who adores dogs as much as Elizabeth does! She sent us pictures, videos, and sweet little updates everyday, and we even had the opportunity to FaceTime with our little angel 🐾 We forgot to pack our dog’s winter coat, and it got quite cold, but Elizabeth had an extra coat that she bundled her in to make sure she was safe and warm on their walks through Evergreen. Also, our little pup gets nervous when we leave her and sometimes won’t eat because of it, but Elizabeth HAND FED her! And then she ate her whole dinner like that. Can you believe that? If that doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about how much Elizabeth cares, I don’t know what will. One more way that Elizabeth went above and beyond that really meant the world to us, was how flexible she was with scheduling. We had some unexpected very-last-minute changes to our trip, but Elizabeth was extremely accommodating, kind, and patient. She really had our back. Elizabeth is such a good person, and you can tell that she really cares about you, as well as your dog. If you’re looking for someone trustworthy and above-and-beyond to take care of your beloved dog, look no further! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you Elizabeth!

We feel so lucky to have had Susan and her husband watch our dog in their home this weekend! She was SO lovely to meet, her yard was perfect for Moose and her dog was so sweet! She sent us so many amazing pictures of Moose throughout his stay with them! He got lots of play time and lots of cuddles. Moose came home exhausted!! We are so thankful for Susan!! ?

Lingling was so amazing and so easy to work with! We had never left Poppy our 4 month old puppy and Lingling was very understanding and treated Poppy like it was her own dog. We got daily updates and photos and she even worked on commands we were working on with Poppy. Will definitely book again!

Andrew was absolutely fantastic. I had some unexpected complications with my trip and he was super flexible and took such care of Saga. An engaged and intuitive sitter Andrew was spectacular with communication and finding the things needed take my anxious pup feel right at home. Saga typically doesn't attach to new people very quickly but after we picked her up she was looking for Andrew the whole walk home. He goes above and beyond to care for those in his care and I am so very grateful. I can't recommend Andrew enough. Thank you so much!

Christine was amazing! Not only did she take my reservation week-of, she took my anxious dog, Pepper, and made sure she was comfortable and entertained the entire time. She sent along photos and videos giving me so much peace of mind. With Christine’s compassion and fully fenced in backyard, my Pepper didn’t want to leave! Will absolutely be biking again and I encourage you to do the same!
