Jenevieve was more than we ever expected. She and her family treated our Suzi like one of their own. Sending pics a couple times a day made us feel so good to know we made the right decision. Suzi has found her home away from home! ❤️

Casandra was absolutely amazing! You can tell she has so much love for the animals in her care. We were kept up to date with updates throughout the entire stay and Penny looked like she has so much fun with Casandra! Book with her!

Ally was really great with my dog Miller. She was very open with her communication and sent a lot of updates and pictures over the weekend. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter in the area. And will definitely let her watch my dog again in the future

Elizabeth did an amazing job with Raz! I received multiple updates every day with how she was doing. I got back from vacation a day later than I expected and Elizabeth was able to keep my dog an extra night with no problem. She even ran to the pet store and got some ear cleaner for Raz when she noticed her ears were bothering her! Overall an awesome experience and you can tell Elizabeth cares a lot about these dogs. Will definitely book again!

Jaden and his girlfriend were amazing!!! They took such incredible care of our dogs. We were worried our dogs wouldn’t want to leave when we picked them up! They took them on walks at the lake, played and cuddled with them, and treated them as they were their own. Definitely book Jaden! He is amazing and a great communicator! Your dogs will be insanely blessed to stay with Jaden!!

Jessica is a terrific dog sitter. We rarely leave our dog, so when we do it is nice to feel comfortable leaving her with a trusted sitter. Our dog spent her weekend away from us playing with Jessica's dog and being treated like family. She is worn out from all of the fun she had. We will be using Jessica again!

Maricela was awesome with easing in Sami into her home, giving her space to get used to the new environment. She sent pictures daily and was always incredibly responsive in both the inquiry and once booked. She accommodated our requests and was incredibly friendly. Definitely recommend Maricela if you are looking for someone that will treat your pet as their own!

Heather and her family were great for Tank! Having a 10 month old puppy can be a lot sometimes, especially for a longer stay lol. Heather and Tank did a lot together and he was able to meet and see lots of new things! We couldn't be happier knowing he was in good hands and with someone looking out for him, having photo sessions and making sure he is safe and has lots of fun! We appreciated that she would send us photos and videos of our guy while we were away. Thank you so much Heather!!!

Amazing experience. Our dog gets homesick but Alexandra was there to help him adjust while we were out of town. He LOVED the big backyard and his new dog friend. Thank you for taking such care of our dog and giving us updates along the way - you went above and beyond.

Jasmine was excellent with watching two of my dogs, Toby and Leia! She already had a full house of her own but she made sure my pups were comfortable and happy while my partner and I were away. Highly recommend!

Rebecca is without a doubt one of the most quality individuals i'm lucky enough to know. She's also top five one of the smartest persons i've ever met. She radiates charisma and commands respect, which i think are two important traits for working with animals. I fully vouch for her being good with dogs as i've been around her leading a pack of three very high energy dogs. They listen to her and get really excited when she comes around.
