Rachelle did a great job watching my dog at my home for the weekend. She handled some walk difficulties my pup gave her very well, and I came home to a well cared for dog. Will use again.

Nichole was amazing! Great communication and gave us plenty of pics while we were gone to let us know our pups were well taken care of. We’d definitely like to have her be our regular sitter.

Sarah is AMAZING! We had her for two overnights in our house taking care of our dog and cat... Sarah was simply amazing. Not only was she responsible and reliable (obviously the most critical things), she was also friendly and genuinely cared for our pets in such a kind way! She provided frequent pupdates and cupdates about our pets, and it was so reassuring to know they were in such good hands and having fun. Our pets are very different - a bit of a wild goldendoodle and a very senior cat. It takes a special person to take such good care of them both. The pictures of our pets made us so happy while we were traveling since we could literally see their smiles in the images!! Not only was Sarah so great with our pets, she took incredible care of our home, too; honestly we found it nicer than when we left! Huge gratitude to Sarah and she has our fullest 5 star, 10 out of 10, most excellent recommendation!

Carrie was wonderful with our two dogs and her natural kindness and communication allowed us to know our dogs were in excellent hands and we could enjoy a trip away. The dogs were so happy the whole time. Your dogs will be lucky to have Carrie care for them!

Amina was lovely - responsive, flexible, responsible. She was very flexible at finding a time to meet our doggies before our trip, and she was very communicative. When she came by before the trip, I could tell immediately how much she really loved dogs. During the trip, she took great care of the house, and sent us regular updates of our dogs’ activities. I highly recommend and we’ll be asking Amina for her help again!

Highly recommend Tori for you pet needs. She is extremely prompt in her responses. She sent pictures of the pets on her arrival to our home and then daily. She even sent a video. Our dog can be very nervous around new people but took right to Tori, putting our minds at ease while we were way. We will definitely be booking her again in the future.

Thank you Hayden! For all those considering Hayden for a pet sitter he was wonderful helping us with our 10 year old golden retriever and German shorthair pointer and our 2 cats while we are out of town. Our animals loved him!

Dara housesat our two large dogs for a long evening while we went to a concert! The dogs immediately warmed up to her and we came back to two happy, resting dogs. Dara communicated so well with us from the planning stage all the way through to the end. I really appreciated how detail oriented she was when asking about routines, safety, and each dogs’ likes and dislikes. She also seemed genuinely excited to hang out with our dogs. She managed our dogs who both have some behaviours (one food guards and my foster is not good on a leash) beautifully. I will definitely book her again.
