“Very sweet with my dogs and conscientious with their needs and my schedule. Would definitely call on her again for walking and/or housesitting.”
“Winna is an extremely reliable, responsive and caring daily walker for our lovable but rather stubborn 8 yr old dachshund mix. She feeds her and has patiently coaxed her to longer walks. Huge thanks to Winna for all your efforts!”
“Marie Andes has a very special connection with pets. She has a wonderful personality and I know my dogs REALLY like her and are always excited to see her. She has interacted with so many pets in the 20 years I have known her. Marie is concerned about animal welfare. She was involved in dog transport for rescues as they found their new homes. She has fostered countless dogs and puppies and worked tirelessly to find them all new forever homes. She would be an asset to anyone needing some help with their pets.”

About: I have a passion for learning and understanding all different types of animals as they deserve so much love and care. We are a huge part of their lives as they are ours! I have taken care of numerous pets wether it be my own, family, or friends. Entrusting someone with your pet is huge! To keep them safe, happy, and having fun is something I take seriously and not for granted! I’m currently a Registered Nurse at a local hospital so my schedule does not remain consistent but I am flexible for the days I have off to provide excellent and fun pet care! I like to check in with pet parents on safety they have in their home and how to best comfort not only them but their pet to ensure extra safety measures wether that includes fences, blocked off areas, etc. I currently cannot operate pet care in my home as I rent an apartment but I am glad to provide pet care in the pet parents home!
“Carrie has taken the absolute best care of my pups over the past few months. Her communication is impeccable, always voicing even the smallest concerns. She also took great care to listen to my concerns and made sure to follow through the way I requested. After facing horrific attacks from other dogs twice over the years while I walked them, the fear of another attack was real. I never worried about my dogs when they were with Carrie. She is extremely confident in her approach. Thanks again Carrie!”
About: As a pet sitter, I pride myself on my unique skills and dedication to providing exceptional care. What sets me apart is my expertise in both training puppies and providing specialized senior care. I have a proven track record of successfully helping young dogs learn basic obedience and manners, while also offering gentle and compassionate support for senior dogs, including administering medications and ensuring their comfort and well-being. Your furry friends are not just pets to me, but beloved family members, and I’m committed to going the extra mile to ensure their happiness and health. Incorporating pet care into my daily and weekly routine is a top priority. With my availability from 10 am to 5 pm every day, I ensure that your furry companions receive the attention, exercise, and love they deserve. Whether it’s feeding, walking, or providing special care for senior pets, I maintain a consistent and compassionate routine to keep them happy and healthy When caring for pets, whether in my home or at a client’s home, I tailor my approach based on the specific service offered. Here’s an overview of how I provide pet care in both scenarios: 1. In My Home: • If the service involves pet boarding in my home, I ensure a safe and comfortable environment with appropriate bedding, food, and water. • I maintain a clean and pet-friendly space with toys and activities to keep them entertained. • Regular feeding, exercise, and playtime are part of the daily routine. • I adhere to any specific dietary or medical requirements as per the owner’s instructions. • Socialization and interaction with other pets in my care, if applicable, are supervised. • I maintain open communication with pet owners, providing updates and pictures to keep them informed and reassured. 2. In Client’s Home: • When providing in-home pet care, I follow the pet’s established routine to minimize disruption and stress. • This includes feeding, walking, and playtime as per the pet’s usual schedule. • I ensure the pet’s safety and comfort in their familiar surroundings. • Medications, if needed, are administered accurately, following the owner’s instructions. • I maintain open communication with the owner, providing updates and addressing any concerns. • Additional services like watering plants or collecting mail may also be offered upon request. In both cases, my primary goal is to ensure the well-being and happiness of the pets under my care, and I tailor my services to meet their specific needs and the preferences of their owners.
About: I’ve taken care of my dog alongside close family and friends dogs for the past six years, for both short and long periods of time.

I am currently living in student housing at the university of Rochester, so I won’t be able to board, but I’m happy to take care of dogs at your home.

“Cate has watched my 2 sons (cats) many times and has taken care of them as if they were her own. She cares deeply about the health and safety of animals and my cats love her so much they’re sad to see her go when I return. 10/10 pet sitter 😻”
About: I’ve been around animals my whole life. I grew up on farms with horses, cows, pigs, chickens, and of course a dog and cat. When I was growing up I was responsible for taking care of them and have seen different pets through different scenarios, like being sick, needing special care, or being upset and nervous due to situational issues. After moving to Arizona for school and I got my dog, Apollo, who is a pit-lab mix. He is great with other dogs and loves playing at the dog park with other dogs. I enjoy spending time with pets and would love to help others with pet sitting because I know how hard it is to leave our loved ones for a trip or vacation. I’m home full-time, so I have plenty of time and attention to give to your dogs! I enjoy walking so you don’t have to worry about your dogs not getting enough activity. I live by plenty of walkable neighborhoods with plenty of sniff spots for your dogs. I have an additional room that can be dedicated to your dog and can crate if needed.
