B was fantastic with Bali. He was super responsive and sent me adorable photos and videos of my baby throughout the stay to show all the fun he was having and put my mind at ease. He also offered suggestions to feed and care for my baby. Would recommend B for his loving and attentive care.

Julie & Peter are such a lovely couple! So happy we found such centrally located sitters. They were so wonderful looking after my high-energy dog for a long weekend. Julie was communicative every day, sending photos at a different park. Their house with outdoor space was also a big plus!

My boarder canceled last minute before a 5 day trip, and I thought I would have to cancel the trip. Siana was more than willing to take my baby in on (very) short notice! She sent pictures everyday and kept me updated on what and how he was doing. She played with him, gave him treats, and she also bought extra food for my cat when I forgot some of his. He felt very comfortable in her home and I wasn’t even worried like normal when someone looks after him. She’s a life-saver!

Reached out to Caitlyn last minute and she was very prompt in getting back to me that she would be able to help on short notice. Communication with Caitlyn was easy and throughout the stay I got numerous updates/pictures on the daily adventures Jameson went on. I really appreciated that Caitlyn treated Jameson as her own and made sure he felt at home. She also included a couple of treats and a ball (Jameson might have stolen it) with a nice note in his return package home. I highly recommend using Caitlyn and I will be using her services again if needed. Thanks!

I’m really happy I chose Kiara to watch my Poppy! She kept me very in the loop on how things were going, sending pictures and videos. Poppy had the best time with Kiara and all the other doggies. I felt very comfortable and was not worried about Poppy with Kiara! I will definitely be sending Poppy here again when I need a sitter. Thanks Kiara!

My pup loves to stay with Annyah! I always feel very comfortable leaving him there when I have to go out of town. She's great with dogs, sends tons of pictures, and is flexible with pick up and drop off times. I know my dog enjoys staying with her because he is always happy to go back! There are usually several other dogs there, which my dog enjoys very much, and I have never had any issues with any of the other pups.

Destiny was wonderful with my dog. She was very flexible with my dog’s new care plan and was patient with his anxiety. As well as being very prompt with check ins. Destiny went above and beyond to make sure he’s well taken care of. She even offered to drive all the way to me to bring an item we forgot. Would recommend 10/10.

Elizabeth is a rare find and absolute gem. She took such great care of my Luna, administering meds and getting her out for walks. Elizabeth provided frequent, excellent communication without being asked. Luna can be a bit extra sometimes and she was putty in Elizabeth’s hands. Thank you, Elizabeth!

Sam was so excited when I contacted her to watch Max. This was the 2nd time she watched Max overnight and as much as we don’t like being away from him, we know that Sam will take great care of him. She treats him like he’s hers with lots of love and cuddles. We definitely recommend Sam!

Iliana was a great choice to sit my dog Breezy while I was away for a week! She brought her sweet dog, Luna, to the dog park for a meet and greet with Breezy before I left and was flexible in coordinating drop off and pick up. She was happy to feed supplements and make sure Breezy had what she needed at her house. I asked her to send at least one photo a day so I could see my pup and she sent me lots of photos and updates on what Breezy was doing every day! I felt super comfortable while I was away and knew that my dog was getting lots of play time and love. I will definitely book with her again!
