Yasmine was the perfect sitter for my pup, Shiloh. She took her on multiple walks and to the dog park. She was very flexible given our need for a last minute sitter. We will definitely be using her in the future. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a sitter for you pup!

Leslie was great with Ernie - she took great care of him and provided updates throughout her time with him. We really appreciate all of the time and effort she put into him, since he has bad separation anxiety!

Theresa is a very sweet, bubbly person who enjoys taking care of pets. She arrived on time, kept us informed while we were away, and took excellent care of our dog. We would hire Theresa again to housesit for us.

Keith was absolutely wonderful with our Tex. Leaving Tex can be difficult, as he is a pretty anxious little guy. Keith came prepared for a meet and greet ahead of time, and left us feeling so much more at ease. Because of Tex’s reactivity, we always leave it as optional to walk him and just let him out back instead, but Keith walked him frequently. Tex was clearly well taken care of when we got home. Thank you Keith!

Emily is the best! Whenever Winnie, my little 6lb morkie, sees Emily, she gets SO excited and just wants Emily to pick her up. Winnie loves being held by Emily and makes herself VERY comfortable in her arms any chance she can get. Emily treats Winnie as if she were her own, it is heartwarming to see. Couldn’t recommend her enough!

I recently hired John to watch my pup Lily. John stayed at my place while I was out of town because Lily does best in her own space. I felt super secure with John just minutes after our initial meeting. Lily adores him and I knew she'd be in great hands. She got lots of love and tons of walks. I would definitely hire John and recommend him to my friends!

Molly went above and beyond for us as a house- and pet-sitter over the Christmas holidays. My wife and kids and I had a long-delayed, week-long trip planned to see my mother across the country from Christmas Eve through New Year's Eve day, and we were having a tough time finding appropriate care for dog and cat. Our dog, in particular, was a challenge, as she's highly reactive to other dogs, is not used to spending most of the day in a crate, and needs some good exercise every day. We realized that a house sitter who was really good with animals was our best option. Luckily, we found Molly. Molly came over in advance of the booking and connected right away with our family and both of our pets. She took very good care of them over the time we were away making sure our dog got long, stimulating walks and playtime, and that our somewhat cantankerous cat got lots of attention. She also took care of our home, and left it in as good or better shape than when we left. She responded quickly and thoroughly to communications and proved herself to be highly responsible, flexible and generous with her time. If you've gotten this far, you've probably figured out that we're highly recommend Molly and would happily work with her again when the need arises.

Rachel was great! Our original scheduled sitter had to cancel due to an emergency and Rachel kindly booked within short notice! She came by to meet our pet beforehand, and they got along great. Rachel kept us well informed, made sure to reach out with any questions, and sent lots of photos of our happy pup. Highly recommend!

Jasmine took great care of Beaux and our house, and sent lots of photos. She was very responsive and caring from the very beginning. Typically, our dog is clearly mad at us when we return from being away. This time, he was clearly relaxed and feeling secure when we got home, which was such a great feeling.

Mike took great care of our high energy pup while we were away for the weekend. We got lots of updates and our pup got plenty of time outdoors walking around and play time inside. When we came back everything was in order and our dog was happy+healthy.
