“We are so thankful that Joshua was available to watch our dog and house for our recent vacation. We were gone just under a month and he took excellent care of everything, texting us with regular updates and sending videos of our pup. It is clear that he is very caring and conscientious. We already have several more mini vacations planned! 😊”
“Esther took great care of my very old dog, gave his meds and put up with his very early schedule, and feed my 4 kitties too❤️I recommend her to everyone 🎉”
“She is great, she allowed us to enjoy our trip without worry using her again for when going out of town.”
“Crystal has been taking care of my sweet kitty, Anabel for the past several work and personal trips. She does such an amazing job and i am so grateful to know that my baby is well taken care of. Crystal is great at keeping me updated and sending photos so i know what’s going on at home. I highly recommend her for all your pet care needs!”
“Oli was wonderful! She took great care of our dogs and our house. She kept me updated throughout the day with pictures of my dogs. We had an issue with our sprinkler system pipes during the Christmas freeze, and Oli was extremely helpful with troubleshooting the issue while we were out of town. While this was not a part of the job description, I was so glad that she was there. Oli was super friendly, and it was obvious that my dogs had a blast while in her care.”
“We can’t thank Shannon enough. With flights canceled we had to have her stay another night and she was so flexible and understanding. She called when she had questions and let us know when she was leaving the house. The girls were well taken care of while we were gone!”
“Kelsey has been an animal lover since she was a small child. She grew up with farm animals as well as dogs and cats. She has worked with dogs and cats in several capacities. For almost 3 years she worked as a Veterinary Assistant where she was responsible for bathing, walking, medicating, comforting and caring for the animals in the kennels. She earned a Veterinary Assistant Certification during her senior year of high school. She also worked for 3 years caring for show dogs. Kelsey is gentle, loving and very passionate with animals. She is trained on what to do in an emergency and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a kind and trustworthy animal caretaker.”
About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“It had been years since I had a week-long family vacations, and I truly enjoyed it knowing my pups were in great hands. Berlyn is so communicative and so respectful with my home. Always my go to no doubt about it! Thank you!”
About: I have had experience at an animal daycare where pets boarded overnight. I've worked with animals from pugs to pitbulls! I also own two cats. I work overnight shifts from 11:30PM-8:30AM on weekdays and 9:30PM-6:30AM on weekends. During those hours, animals can sleep inside, I have an EBO camera to watch them during the night. They should be asleep during these hours. I don’t work during the daytime so I can keep an eye on any fur babies I’m sitting. Most time will be spent outdoors if the weather is nice. There’s also multiple dog parks in the area that I can drive to. In a clients home, I'm open to any rules and regulations implemented by the client. I like to spend as much time outside with pets as possible. If no outdoor space, I'm okay with staying inside. I'm also open to traveling to nearby parks for playtime and potty time. In my house, again, I like to spend as much time with the pets outside as possible. My neighborhood is very pet friendly and there are several dog parks and other parks nearby. My apartment has an open yard if owner doesn't want pet to travel far. If owner requires only indoor care, I have potty pads and treats on hand. I do own two cats that will be kept away from non cat-friendly animals. CAN PROVIDE UPDATES IN THE FORM OF PICTURES, VIDEOS, AND TEXTS IF REQUESTED! I love to keep owners up to date on their pets.
“Maya was the most considerate and kind young woman that I could ask for in a dog sitter. She took care of my old little chihuahua with such affection. I can tell she has a real passion for animals and you will not regret going with her for anything that you might need for your pets.”
About: I've been looking after pets since I was 12, from neighbor to family pets. My responsibilities have extended from walking the pets to sleeping next to them so they'll feel at ease. Puppies and cats have been trusted upon me and I can confidently say that I'm a puppy expert. I've worked with many different dogs and I've loved every single one. Anything that your pup or kitty requires will be my top priority. I am currently a stay at home wife, so for pups that need to be under constant watch there is no problem, I'll be available. This also goes for senior dogs who may have to be let outside more often. I'm fully available to the needs of your pets! My way of caring for a pet will always be based off of what you as an owner tells me needs to be done. My goal is to try to keep your pert as comfortable as possible while their mom and dad are gone. I'm a stickler for rules and every pet owner has a certain way of doing things with their pet and I will abide by that routine to keep your pet stress free.

“Olivia was a wonderful help to our family! I couldn’t emphasize that enough! We went on vacation for 3 weeks and she took such good care of our home as well as our two dogs and three cats. I was so appreciative for her effort and communication with us, and she even sent me videos just to make sure that we knew that our fur babies were safe and loved.
