“Kayla was communicative and responsible, I felt very comfortable leaving my two cats in her care for a weekend trip.”
“Callie was awesome for drop-in visits. She provided pictures and great notes and updates and was very responsive to messages and request modifications. I’m definitely hoping to have her watch my pups again!”
About: I am a true advocate for our four legged babies because they don’t have a voice. So I will go above and beyond for your furry baby. I cared for an older dog that was severely injured from being hit by a car, and needed special care including administration of medication, to experiencing my Roxi going through pregnancy and birth of 5 puppies and the joy raising a puppy which was one of the puppies and his name is Ace. You tell me what you want, and I will follow your expectations. If you have small dogs, Im the perfect fit for you. Dont take your et to these other sitters that provide large backyard, own big dogs themselves and risk bringing in fleas, ticks and possibly parvo from digging and playing outside.i only host 2 dogs a day/night and if you have a special request, you can have a private booking where no other dogs are being cared for during your pet’s stay, so you feel at peace while you are away. Your furry baby will stay inside with me, and be able to roam freely around the house, i have doggy steps to all furniture, including the bed! I have monitors that allow me to monitor your pet at all times 24/7. My home is clean, up to date with pest control, my pets are current on vaccines including influenza and covid . Im willing to accommodate for you to enjoy your time away from your pet. This includes you coming FROM out of town to events such as funerals, weddings, family gatherings where there might be other not-so-friendly pets. Provide your yourself and your pet peace of mind and a safe place to stay for these types of events. Even if its just a few hours to go out with friends. Don’t leave them home alone. They can come play with us! Very friendly, love to play. Although i have my prefences listed, there are exceptions do don’t hesitate to contact me and let’s talk. Rescue pets and puppies are welcomed. I ask that you bring their favorite toy, the bed they sleep in and please please bring the food they normally eat. They most likely will experience separation anxiety which possibly can cause upset stomach and diarrhea which goes away after 72 hours, so changing the food they eat during their stay will worsen it. All pets eat during meal time and separate locations throughout the house until they are finished. At any time, if something occurs that I feel as a pet owner I would want to know right away about it, I do not hesitate to contact you so that you are aware of the situation. Some examples: your pet jumped off the sofa and landed on their jaw, your pet started vomiting, your pet is showing symptoms of distress, your pet was play fighting with another pet and ended up with a laceration on its skin, are some examples that could happen during your pets stay here. I take it very serious when your pet’s behavior has changed suddenly. None of these have taken place while under my care, But understand, I don’t hesitate to contact you Note: Puppy rates override additional pet rates And if your pet isn't potty trained, please bring pee pads. Notify me if your four legged friend is not fully potty trained. It doesn’t change anything. I just want to be prepared. Im certified at administering CPR to your pet and currently taking courses to be a certified boarder with the American Kennel Club. My pets are my kids and i will treat yours the same way. Loving, cuddling, back massaging, tummy rubbing are all free here!!!🐾🥰❤️🐕🦺🦮🐩🐕🐈🐈⬛🏼 From September to December and January to June, I board and doggie daycare on weekends and ALL HOLIDAYS. I’m flexible on the drop off/pickup time but understand if its after the time of drop off, it will be considered at the extended rate for going pass that time. For example, if you dropped your furry baby off at 3 PM on Friday and you don’t pick your pet up until 8 PM on Sunday you will get charged an extended rate for the time from 3- 8 pm. If you need to modify any thing regarding the times, please notify me at the time of the booking so that we are on the same page and I can make accommodations to meet your needs. Thank you. Just need 48 hour. notice. Beginning August 14th I'm only available after 3:30 pm daily for drop ins, walks, Fridays after 3:30-sundays at 7pm. and weekends, . Im willing to fit in drop ins, dog walks anytime. Boarding i prefer in my home due to my own friendly dogs i care for. My goal in caring for your pet is to provide an environment that is conducive to their comfort and happiness while you’re away. Your rules will be followed, whether it be in your home or in my home. I live alone and, therefore, my focus and attention is all on your pet. I only care for dogs in my home. I provide plenty of photos and videos for you throughout their stay, i can FaceTime for you to interact with them where you can also talk to your pet for reassurance when your dog is to be cared by me in My Home. Currently Kern county dog parks are having an increase number of parvo cases, so i will not walk the Dogs there. I have a quiet, mature, cul-de-sac that I live in and provide daily walks up and down my street and they do not interact with any other animals. Potty breaks are provided using my medium size. backyard where they can run around i and stretch their legs, but then we come back in and do your activities inside my I, believe in positive reinforcement. I WILL NOT TOLERATE HURTING PETS FOR THEIR BAD BEHAVIOR. 🐾🌸 reward system is the best to train your pet.
“Coming from the Veterinary field, Eva works extremely well with animals. For short while, I lived with Eva and many times did she babysit my troublesome cat, Teddy. Eva did make sure to feed him twice a day, made sure he had fresh water and gave him lots of TLC. Normally, Teddy is very antisocial with everyone except for me but Teddy made an exception with Eva.”
Joshua JM W.
“Joshua is wonderful and has such a sweet, kind and beautiful spirit. He took wonderful care of my dog and I have nothing but good things to say. Thank you!”

About: Anyone can say they love dogs. Dogs are just so easy to love. But not everyone an say that they can give dogs the love and care that they deserve. What sets me apart from other pet sitters is my attention to detail. About 5 years ago, my dog Toto developed cataracts in his eyes and needed surgery so retain his sight. After his eye surgery, he needed several different eye drops every day to maintain his vision and keep his eyes healthy. For 5 years, I have made sure that his eyes received the medication they needed so that he can remain the spunky, lazy, happy dog that he is. I have also often taken care of my previous neighbor's elderly dog who also needed regular, scheduled medication. Without fail, he received his medication on time, even if I did have to wrap them up in a treat. If you want peace of mind when you have to leave your furry friends for a while, I'll provide the care that you need and they deserve! I am currently working full time (8am-5pm) but I can make short visits in between my work hours if needed. I am also available after 5pm on days that I am needed. I am always willing to tailor my services based on what your needs are. Whether you pet is a finicky eater, a shy one in the bathroom, or just needs regular medication, I can make sure your pet's quirks are well taken care of so that you don't have to worry while you are gone. I also provide regular photo updates along with my services so that you can be assured that your furry friends are happy, healthy, and thriving!
“Great updates and communication. Came home to happy pups!”
About: I’ve taken care of a wide range of animals (mainly farm animals) I’ve volunteered at horse and donkey rescue farms so I’ve got to be with many dogs, horses, pigs, cows, & zebra hah. I like training puppies mostly because it’s a really hilarious experience since they are goofy, my pup is still in training herself. I have had 3 senior dogs personally, two have passed due to age and the third is still going on at about 16yrs (probably more since he was a stray hah) but I give him lots of supplements and have him on his own diet that’s very strict so I’m familiar with puppy feeding schedules as well as senior. Pretty easily I’d say I’m a morning person due to my job of working overnights, 9am feedings and afternoon is around 4-5pm, we go to a local park 5 days out of the week for about an hour or two (mainly until my pup is tired) and play fetch to let her stretch her legs, we go on hikes when the weather is good for the both of us as well (no burning paws around here with the hot pavement or dirt!) We usually let them roam (if potty trained) I have one indoor cat that bounces off the walls since he’s very energetic, my other cat is an outdoor kind of gal, she was a stray when I found her so she prefers outside over anything. I have a big yard I’m not sure the measurements but it’s about 40-45ft wide, good amount of space for a GSD, but I have to occupy her with a finding treat game or a hide treat to chew on since she does tend to rip branches off my tree (she’s happy with her talent but it’s very messy) I like to keep my eye on them. Especially if rules apply to others homes then I will respect it, no bad behavior in the house! I keep small objects or anything that looks like a dog or cat can ingest away or thrown out
“Jeanine is a very caring and a loving pet caregiver. She is constantly aware of the dogs needs (whether they’re hungry, need to use the restroom, or just want to play) and can constantly make sure they are given what they need. If you need your pet walked, watched, or cared for, she will make sure they are returned happier and better than when she got them.”
“She is a good dog mom and I love the way she trains my pitbull nine she is so we’ll behaved now and savannah was super nice”
About: I’ve taken care of all kinds of animals from dogs to rabbits. I have been a huge animal lover since I was a kid. I had a friend once joke and say that my pets had better health insurance than her because of how much I loved and cared for my pets. Clients, friends and family always ask me first if I can take care of their pets when they are gone. I am always reliable and love their pets as my own. I will let your dogs out for potty breaks in between my day at work. They will get unconditional love and attention. My best friend is my pug. My fur babies are my children and will treat your pet the same way. I’m self employed running my own business that has busy days and slow days. If I am responsible for the care of someone’s animals I will make sure to schedule around their care. Potty breaks, food and attention will be considered first. I am a very easy going and responsible person. I have a fenced yard and a doggy door. My pug is the biggest social butterfly and welcomes anyone who comes in our home including cats. She was raised with cats so she loves them like they are her people. Haha She loves to have new doggy friends too. I spoil her like crazy so your pet will be given the same attention and care. I take their safety very seriously. If you have rules for your pet in your home I will abide by those rules.
“Cat is a very personable, responsible, and genuinely caring person. Furthermore, she is also a well experienced pet care taker. I have actually pet sat and volunteered at an animal shelter with her previously and can attest to her abilities to provide thorough, safe and loving care for your pet/s. She has a genuine passion for animal care as she is an aspiring veterinarian, so you as a pet parent can feel at ease knowing your fur baby is in great hands.”
“Sidney took wonderful care of Jethro during her drop in visits from Aug 18-21. She is a trustworthy person and loved our coonhound as her own. Sidney provided up to date photos and videos at each visits. Thank you so much Sidney. We recommend Sidney as your next petsitter.”
About: I will treat you dog the way I would want my own dogs to be treated. Parks runs and short trips around town would be given. Gromming dogs and brushing their teeth would not be a problem for me . ( request and pay extra grooming fee) I currently work remote but do have to leave home some days. I am in a slower season with my work right now as it is June so I am home almost all days so taking care of clients brightens my day and we keep each other company Whatever schedule or rules you have for your home I will follow. I have no problem letting your dogs out to pee following feeding times and playing around in the backyard
“Super thrilled to have found Lupe! She took great photos and my dogs loved her, even my scaredy dog! I really appreciated how quickly Lupe responded to me, and she even brought my packages in. Lupe clearly loves dogs! My pups were very happy and contented when I returned home. I will definitely be using Lupe's services again in the future!”
“Jennifer was great with my dog. Very insightful to how my dog is doing and courteous to accommodate requests! She really cares about animals. Would book again.”
“Odalys has cared for my Goldendoodle, Phoenix, multiple times as I have a busy office schedule. She has cared for him for periods of 4+ hours. Phoenix can be a handful in the sense of his puppy mannerisms always popping up. He is high energy and sometimes requires redirection. Odalys seems to have an endless amount of patience and genuinely enjoys time with Phoenix, while gently redirecting him. She has the perfect balance of nurture and accountability. Odalys’s bubbly and warm demeanor is definitely infectious-my dog can always sense a positive presence and I honestly go to work carefree, as sometimes it feels like he’s in more patient hands of my own. She is great with routines and takes Phoenix out for walks and potty breaks with the schedule I provide. I can easily say Odalys is the full, nurturing, package.”
