“Martin has been great and really thoughtful with our dogs.”
“Pam was great ? Very professional and our puppy was very happy thanks Pam!”
“Sandra as a mother to 3 children and 2 fur babies herself. Whenever she sees pets out while out, her eyes light up and she loves seeking their attention. She has a kind soul which I believe that animals pick up on. I would trust her with any of my family’s pets.”
About: There’s nothing I love more than going on walks with a furry companion. I love to go on morning or afternoon walks and to play outdoors with my fur friends! I currently work and go to school full time! Thankfully my job is flexible enough for me to do online schooling on the clock so on my days off, I can focus on taking care of your fur babies. I currently live in an apartment but I live in a safe area for walking, my complex also has a small gated dog park to let them get their energy out. I’ll always keep your dogs on a rather short leash so they don’t wander too far out from me.
“Melissa is an absolute gem!! She’s very professional and personable. She gives updates on your pets care and cute pictures. Very trustworthy!!!”
“Taylor is the best!! It was my first time leaving Charlie alone for a full day of work since I adopted him last week and I was a nervous wreck. She was so understanding of my nerves and acknowledged my very lengthy instructions! She sent me pictures of him having fun and he came home after the walk and slept most of the day without any further whining. Will constantly rebook with her :)”
“Mark did a fantastic job with our new dog Teddy! We are long-time dog owners as is Mark, and his years of experience and bed-side manner was certainly evident and provided great peace of mind while we were away from our new pup. We will be relying on Mark in the future and strongly recommend him to others!”
“I've known Trey for a long time. He has petsit my dog and cat for me on numerous occasions as well as cared for my ferrets and hamster years ago. He even has cared for my parents chickens, dog, cat, turkeys, goat, rabbits and miniture horse on their hobby farm in previous years. He has a real passion, love and devotion to animals. Animals seem to be naturally drawn to him and trust him. As any animal lover knows animals have good instincts knowing who to trust. I know I can put my mind at ease when Trey is caring for my families pets. He doesn't just care for them, he loves them too.”
“Elizabeth is so reliable and so caring! She will care for your pet as her own. We are so grateful to have found someone to help with our fur baby and someone who loves our pup as much as we do!”
“Kelly is attentive, reliable, and caring. She does great with our boxer and frenchie. Our pups are always properly cared for when we leave them with her and we don’t have to worry.”
About: Hi!! I have been around dogs my whole life starting with our pitbull and beautiful golden that made major impacts in my life. After losing them, it was hard for us to bring another dog into our lives so I began dog walking at our local shelter when I was in high school! Eventually I began walking and dog sitting for friends and family as well where I helped bathe and care for them when they were away. I have the most experience with small and medium sized dogs and I am very aware of their temperaments! My family now has a Maltese and German shepherd that I worked with frequently when I was living at home. Leaving them was the one of the worst parts about leaving home and because of my work schedule I cannot have my own at this time :/ I would love the opportunity to care for your furry loved one as it brings me joy and gets me outside! I look forward to helping you with your pet :) My work schedule alternates every week but as a nurse I only work 3x a week which gives me more flexibility throughout the week. On my off days I am available throughout the whole day! I live in a dog friendly apartment in a safe neighborhood! I currently have no other pets living with me so if you have a pet that is not good with other animals, my apartment will work perfectly:) I do best with lists of directions so I can follow exactly what you need done for your pet such as going for a walk and then coming home after to put them in their crate after eating! I am here to help and put your mind at ease while you are away or at work.
“Jasmine has been our families pet caregiver for several years. We love the extra mile she goes in making our pets feel loved and secure while we are away. We especially love the photos she sends of our furry babies to let us know they are happy and healthy and well fed. She is like family. 5 star rating.”
“Ron is responsible and caring and LOVES dogs. He has cared for my dog Jumper twice now , taking him for walks and always keeping him moving. Jumper loves him! Ron is A++ . I highly recommend!”
About: Ive helped raise dozens of pets over the past ten years, Including looking after my housemates animals, coworkers pets, and even tending to barnyard buddies. Most Animals that have anxious tendencies are very comfortable with me. Some of my friends have pets that rarely show their face but always seem to greet me when I visit. I have experience with cats, dogs, livestock, reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, mantids, and fish. I’ve never fed a snake myself or cared for birds. I have many years of experience raising puppies and kittens (even feral ones), and caring for seniors. I would give your pet the utmost attention and care, but I cannot lift more than 30lbs. I am a part-time college student online and a stay at home wife. Most days I have full availability as I can rearrange my own tasks however I need to. I do need at least one day notice to be certain I will have my car when I need it. I can drive my husband to work and use it, he works close to home. I don’t believe in walking dogs without a leash unless you have a fully fenced area for them to play and use the bathroom. I don’t believe in letting house cats roam outside as they please. If you have an anxious animal, please let me know ahead of time so I can gauge how to approach your pets without contributing to their discomfort. If you have a cat door that’s always open, I will still allow booking.
“I highly recommend Sally as a pet sitter. She loves animals and spoils my dog!! She is reliable and trustworthy and I have been using her for many years.”
Lee Ann R.
“Lee Ann visited my senior dog and played with her while I was at work. She did a wonderful job, demonstrating care, attention to detail and a sense of fun. I look forward to working with Lee Ann again.”
“Mara was great! She sent me photos to show how happy my dog was. She cleaned up his accident and not only fed him but also did the dishes afterward. Would be happy to have her walk my dog again.”
“Diana was great! On time, trustworthy and very patient. She loves my doggies and I am so grateful to have found her. She is very accommodating which is a huge plus!!”
“Over the past year, April has been taking care of our 14 year old havanese poodle, Grizz, who lost her primary care taker, my dad who passed away last year, and her playmate (our other dog) who passed earlier this year. April has since stepped in and given our dog the exercise and attention she had been missing. Also clipping Grizz's nails and trimming her dog beard. April is a dedicated and observant caretaker that I would recommend for all pets exotic or otherwise.”
“Mackenzie lives with us and our two dogs, Solar and Luna. He shares some of the responsibilities taking care of them, including taking them out for walks, letting them outside, and feeding them in the morning and evening (including giving them medications). He cares for the dogs when we are at work or out of town. He has also fostered a loving relationship with both of them and enjoys playing with them and giving them belly rubs.”
