“This is my second time using Coretta to watch my pets and she was just as amazing as the first. Her updates are so thorough, thoughtful, and sweet and can tell she genuinely enjoys caring for my animals.”
“She is very kind to animals. She treats them like family ! Would highly recommend. Very Prompt, loving, kindhearted, and honest. Would Hire Again !”
“Kori did an amazing job with my jack russell chihuahua, Binky! Not only was she on time, but Binky loved playing with her and it seemed like he didn’t even wanna leave. She even gave him a little bit of food without me asking sometimes. Would definitely recommend her if you like a good walker who engages with your pooch!”
“I haven’t used Rover but I know Emma through work and she’s watched our dog multiple times. Emma and our dog are best friends, she always gets excited when we’re pulling up to Auntie Emma’s house😂 Anyone’s dog will be well cared for and beyond happy staying with Emma.”
“We have a 3yr old rescue who is very skittish around new people. We were concerned about who we would get to watch Shelby while we were gone for a weekend for my son's wedding. Kendra came to meet and spend time with Shelby before our weekend. We didn't need to worrry: Kendra took great care of Shelby, kept us updated on how things were going, swnr put her best wishes to my son & his wife. She even checked on Shelby the day we came back, and hoped that we had a great time at the wedding. Kendra is a gem, we were lucky to find her, and will definitely use her again!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Orion, he made sure to get to know my Pug Dolly before working with her. He took his time as initially she was very timid. Will most definitely work with him again.”
“David is an amazing pet caregiver. Anytime I have needed him to watch my dog when we going on vacation he is always made me feel like my dog was in good hands. Plays with him takes him on walks and gave me updates while I was gone on the things they did together. It is so great to know I have someone I can trust take care of my loved one.”
“We had our first visit with Claudia and our pup was so happy when we got home. Our pup is new to us (and a very nervous rescue) but Claudia followed our instructions well. I’m glad we found her for the days I work as I work long shifts.”
About: My family has a dog training service. I’ve been around dogs and cats my whole life and I love them. We just click together nicely I am a stay at home mom and an entrepreneur. I clean houses on my own schedule so I have plenty of flexibility in my schedule. Your fur babies will have acces to a fenced in open yard with safety as the first priority . There are near by parks within walking distance so there will be plenty of time for play and exercise. Your fur baby will feel safe and at home . I have a fenced in yard.My dad also owns a in house kennel and outdoor kennel. There’s various options for housing. I keep the pets in my home . I try to provide a more relaxed environment where it seems like they’re at home to promote a safe space for them to be themselves and feel more at ease while their caregivers are away. If I care for them at their own home, I remain on schedule and try to blend into their natural home environment and schedule to promote ease and security for the pets. My main goal is to keep them feeling safe, happy, and secure. It’s all about building a relationship with your pets and making them feel at home and safe.

About: I have taken care of dogs since I was young. I have a 14 year old Maltese/Poodle mix at home, and I have cared for neighbors' and families' almost all my life. Since I was about 9 or 10, I have been regularly walking, feeding, and occasionally doing overnight care for dogs of different sizes. I currently work part-time, so I am available most afternoons and weekends! I can definitely be available for drop-ins for feeding or walking, and I can be available for overnight care as well. I have a fully fenced yard with plenty of open grass space for exercise and potty time. I have one 14 year old dog, who currently lives in my home. Full disclosure, he is getting old and a little skittish. If I had your dog overnight, he will likely be scared and avoid other dogs. He does not attack or antagonize, he just likes to mind his own business. I can easily crate your dog for nighttime or other needs. I have experience with different types of leashes, as well.
“Hillary was really amazing and went above and beyond to take care of our cats! I'm pretty sure the cats were disappointed to see us again after having her take care of them.”
“Lisa is attentive and reliable! I had never used Rover before but we needed someone to feed our cats while we were away. I booked Lisa for multiple drop-in visits based on her reviews and I’m very glad I did. She is communicative and caring. Definitely recommend!”
“Steven was great. He took extra care of our new kitten and went above and beyond. I would highly recommend his service and would absolutely use him again.”
“From day one you were able to see the passion and love that Dominique has for pets. My Rocky instantly picked up on her genuine spirit. Rocky is very shy to new people typically but immediately bonded with Dominique from day 1. He looks forward to their daily walks, often waiting for her by the door around his scheduled time. She even lends an extra helping hand by keeping him when me and my family are out of town. She is also now his preferred ride to the groomer as well lol. I am so glad that we found her.”
“Paige was amazing. She treated my elderly dog like hers, and did a great job following directions, being on time, and getting everything done while we were on vacation. Highly recommend!”
About: I am a college grad and former dog owner with previous experience working as a dog sitter since high school. I love pets immensely, and am so excited to meet yours! Every dog I get to greet is a gift, and I treat them as such. Through my own experience as a dog owner, alongside my diverse experience with other dogs, I have learned a lot that I get to bring to these new situations. I know how vital calmness can be, and keep myself patient. I know every dog is different, so please share everything you can about your animal and all their quirks! Getting to interact with animals is so much fun and so fulfilling, I wish to spend more of my time doing it when I can. I currently work from home, so my schedule is incredibly flexible! I'm available for walks throughout the week and can stay with your fur baby as need be. I like to keep the care of your pet as close as possible to their normal routine, so please keep that information clearly written out if possible, or we can write it out together!
About: I’m my family, I was the one who cared for the animals all the time. I bathed, cleaned, fed and played with them all the time. I am unemployed and in school, so if I was able to be away from my own pets to be with a variety of other different pets I’d be satisfied with happiness everyday. In my home they’ll be cared for by being fed, being played with. Cuddles during a nap and outside playing of course. I can’t wait to spend time with different types of dogs and cats.
“Gabi is an excellent pet sitter she is caring and loving towards pets she has taken care of my dog before and I was satisfied with her service, would totally recommend!”
