About: I've owned and taken care of a variety of animals over the years, from dogs (small and large), cats, horses (riding and showing), sugar gliders, to bearded dragons. I've owned a conure parrot, a hedgehog, ferrets, and saltwater fish. Currently I have a Havanese, Zoe, who I used to show, and an adopted mixed-breed rescue dog, Midas, who I became a lifetime member of Sit Means Sit with, a top-rated dog training service. I'm available for house sitting in your home during the week and on weekends. I am retired and have no other work commitments that would conflict with my availability. Since I will be in your home my goal will be to follow the routine that you prefer your dog or other pets to follow and is their normal routine. Including what time they get up in the morning, potty breaks, feedings, walking, and play time. This is something we will go over during a meet and greet at your home so that we can go over it together. Please note that while I offer house sitting services, I may need to leave during the day and your animals may be home for a few hours while I am gone. If I’m sitting further than a 30 minute drive, and I’m booked for long stays or back to back, I would appreciate your understanding that my husband may visit only, so we can at least spend time together while I am caring for your pets! If you are looking for full-time, uninterrupted care then we can discuss what that would look like.

About: I've taken care of pets since I was about age ten. I see animals as part of the family as my pets have been some of my greatest companions over the years. As an educator, I am home full time for the summer months until early August. Once school begins, I am available late afternoons and evenings. I have two crates, one small for cats and one midsize for dogs. I can crate your dog if needed. I have a small room that they can sleep in to give them privacy. I enjoy walking pets and caring for them daily.

Victoria has been a dog lover for over 20 years. She has an unprecedented amount of love and passion for dogs. How do I know? I’m her father. She has an almost unbelievable gift for taking care of animals...especially dogs. When she very young, it was very prevalent that there was something extraordinary about her adoration for dogs. She got her big chance to shine when one day we brought home a chihuahua we named Princess. To be fair, Princess was to be equally shared with all three of my kids... the other two...Her older sister Elizabeth and her older brother Zack. They were supposed to take turns on which bedroom Princess would spend the night at. Elizabeth was the oldest and seven years older than Victoria, so she was first. It started out with Princess staying with Elizabeth, but sometime during the night little Victoria snuck out of her room and into Elizabeth’s room and in her older sister’s bed, so that she (Victoria) could be with Princess. Her brother Zack got his chance the next night, but he pushed her off the bed sometime during the night, and Princess ended up in Victoria’s room. From that point on, it was Victoria as young as she was fought for the right to have Princess stay with her...And stay with her she did...for the next sixteen years. Just recently Princess passed away. After 16 wonderfully loved and cared for years, Victoria had to give up her best friend. It was a very tearful moment, and I’m glad I was there to support Victoria. Although a great loss, Victoria had prepared for this moment and adopted/rescued a sweet dog named PC and later bought a dog of her dreams which a Dalmatian named Bailey full of energy and character. This made the transition better when Princess passed away, but Princess was not to be forgotten. Victoria not willing to forget Princess,even though she had two wonderful dogs to share her love and attention with, had a large and beautiful tattoo done of Princess on her left shoulder. It’s an amazing rendition of Princess. Aside from the love of her own dogs, Victoria has always jumped at the chance to watch and take care of her friends dogs. She has an amazing devotion to dogs...any dog. She is always talking about dogs. She is always on her phone looking at dogs...finding out new things about dogs. When she was younger, she used to tell me “when I grow up I want to do something for animals especially for dogs.” I told her that she needs to do what her heart is telling her to do. And, now that she proven herself with her own dogs and with dogs of other dog owners, I fully support and recommend her to any dog owner that is looking for the best possible care for their own dog or dogs. Victoria is top notch when it comes to the best possible care , love, and devotion to animals...especially dogs. You will not be disappointed when you put your dog or dogs in her more than capable hands. Give her a chance and I guarantee you that you’ll love how she cares for your dog...so much so...that you won’t hesitate to tell your friends about her. She is simply that amazing when it comes to taking care of dogs...and she’ll be that amazing when she takes care of your dog(s).

Valerie was great with our babies! It gave us such peace of mind knowing she was there with them and they were not kenneled or boarded for the weekend, but instead at home, in their own surroundings. I believe it made us being away so much easier for them! We'd definitely recommend and we'll definitely bring her back!

Shyla has become my go-to person for pet care when I am out of town. My dogs adore her, and even my shy cat greets her when she comes in. It's a relief not to have any worry about my home and my pets when I travel. She replies promptly and reaches out with any unexpected issues, and I am always confident that she will be able to handle any emergency. Highly recommended.

Rejeana did an outstanding job housesitting my 5 month old dog for 12 days. He is a wrecking ball of energy and I came home to my dog napping in his crate and the house perfectly in order. She updated me every day with photos and texts, and I was able to enjoy my vacation. I have already scheduled her next stay with him! Thank you!

Myah has house sat/cared for my pet on a few different occasions. She always makes the pets feel loved and cared for. She takes such good care of any animal she sits for. She puts their wants/needs before her own. I would totally recommend Myah to anyone in search of a sitter.

About: I’ve had dogs, cats, turtles, fish, and hamsters since I was a toddler. I used to pet sit for my neighbors and family members from about 10yrs old onward. I’ll walk, cuddle, bathe and play with any type of pets. I used to volunteer at an animal shelter. I also worked at Coyne Vet center for about 2 years. I’m usually available for a walk or drop in visit on week nights and the weekends! I do work in the Crown Point area so I’m mobile. I’m open to in house pet sitting as long as your pet can go about 6 hours alone with me being at work. I always remember that your home is their home. I like to keep your fur babies as comfy as possible. I also try to keep them on their regular routine as if nothing is changing for them.
