Christina was amazing!! She sent us frequent updates with lots of photos and followed our instructions to a tea. We could tell that our dog was very calm and happy with her which allowed us to have a worry free vacation. 10/10 would book with her again!

Rachelle did a great job watching my dog at my home for the weekend. She handled some walk difficulties my pup gave her very well, and I came home to a well cared for dog. Will use again.

Highly recommend Kylee! She is very friendly, organized, reliable and took wonderful care of our three dogs while we were out of town. Kylee sent us a few updates daily and sent pictures to give us peace of mind. The house was also kept nice and neat! We look forward to having Kylee housesit in the future!

Amina has dog-sat for us several times a year since we adopted our 5-year-old Yorkie, Casha, at 5 months. She is simply the best! When we are lucky enough to get her, my vacations are always more relaxed because I know my dog is getting the best care and having fun. My dog loves Amina. She also is amazing at following any instructions and suggestions. Last trip I suggested a walk to a beautiful ravine path, so she brought my dog there twice! She even took amazing photos of their visit which made me so happy and was an added keepsake for my husband and me. As an added bonus, Amina happens to be an amazing, kind, sweet, empathetic and intelligent person too! She is perfect for little ones with separation anxiety. -Alysha S.

Jessie also went above and beyond with cleaning up after her stay and even went so far as to wash the sheets and towels. Thank you, Jessie!

Lily is a fantastic person and truly knowledgeable when it comes to dogs. She cared for my shy and fearful little dog for the first time last week, and they were best friends by the time I got home. Lily is a caring person who truly loves dogs and understands them. She is also punctual, communicative, and flexible. I had an emergency while Lily cared for my dog, and although Lily had other plans, she changed them to stay with my dog, which suffers from severe separation anxiety. I was amazed at her compassion and understanding, and I will deffitely work with her again because she won over my little guy. I got home, and although he greeted me, he played with Lily, which is rare. Thank you, Lily, you truly saved us.

Sreya is amazing! She provided wonderful care of my two kitties – one who is sassy and the other, who is still a kitten. She sent photos and kept me updated. She was on time and is a great communicator. I felt so comfortable leaving my babies in her care, and will 100% reach out for future trips. Needless to say, I definitely recommend her to others! Thank you so much Sreya! 

Katherine did an amazing job watching our dogs, communicating with us consistently throughout the visit, and was extremely patient and available to meet twice before the sitting to go over details of the visit and pick up a key. She was proactive in noticing our food was running low during the visit as well. We will definitely be working with her again if the situation arises where we need a sitter!

Chenoah took exceptional care of Ella. She arrived on time and checked in, kept the place super clean and even stayed extra time before checking out. I appreciated that she sent me pictures of Ella so I knew that my baby was being well cared for during my trip. I recommend her enthusiastically and plan to use her again. Chenoah, Thank you from Ella and I.

I wish I could give Caroline more than five stars to convey how wonderful she is. She just house-sat for me and my husband for five days when we went out of town for our wedding. This was the first time I have ever left my dogs with someone other than a family member. I was nervous because my pups have some particular needs, and I am pretty overprotective of them. I’ve had a few incidents in the past where they’ve gotten out and I’ve had to chase them, leaving me feeling traumatized and reluctant to leave them for any extended period of time. But I felt like I hit the jackpot finding Caroline. She truly went above and beyond to ensure my dogs’ safety and happiness while I was away and gave them lot of love and attention. Caroline knew I was nervous and sent me regular pictures and updates to reassure me while I was away. She also took amazing care of our home. It was such an great feeling to be able to properly celebrate my wedding knowing my dogs were safe, healthy, and happy in the care of a wonderful person. After Caroline left, my dog Sammy cried and looked all over the house for her! I give her 5 million stars and will absolutely be booking with Caroline again if she’ll have us :)
