I have known Julia for a while from a professional standpoint where she has always been respectful and caring of other. The same treatment is also brought over to the pet caring world. She has shared her fun experiences with the dogs she cares for and it appears that the pooches are having lots of fun as she takes them for long walks and provides plenty of loving attention to them. Some dogs have made a mess of themselves a few times while out in the fields, but she cleans them up to ensure they are in tip top shape.

We had Brandi come for a quick overnight stay. She was amazing! (Only not giving 5 stars this time because it was one night and will be trying again for a full week) She was quick to respond, sent pictures of the pups, and was on top of everything. Will definitely be reaching out to her again.

This was my very first experience using a pet-sitting service. I chose Estefanny because of her very high ratings and she did not disappoint. My ancient kitty Larry doesn't do well staying by himself anymore. Estefanny not only assured that he had regular meals, water, and meds, but she also stayed with him at night so he wasn't lonely. Larry clearly loved her. She sent an update and photos every day, many of which showed him on her lap or in the spare bed, so he was obviously comfortable sleeping with her. To be honest, I expected her to be great with Larry. What I didn't expect was, after 5 nights sleeping at my house, I couldn't even tell she had been there. The place was exactly as I had left it - I swear she packed out her own garbage! Estefanny clearly cares for pets and is pleasant, reliable, and responsive. The highest recommendation I can give her is that I'm headed out of town again next month and I've already booked Estefanny to take care of Larry. The whole experience was just terrific!

Amazing pet sitter!!!! My dog Stella absolutely adored Jax. Came home to a clean house and dog!! Communication was excellent and was able to accommodate on a short notice. Stella got bathed and nails trimmed, something I struggle with so much! Jax is the best sitter for your animals, will definitely book again ?

Maria was great! My animals loved her and she them. She was exceptional at figuring things out on her own. Even though it was her first time at my house, she was able to navigate her way. When we arrived back home, everything was as we left it and the animals were happy and calm. I know Maria had been walking my pup because he's normally pretty wild. I would highly recommend Maria.

About: I’ve never met anyone as passionate about living creatures or life in general as I am. Working with living things also makes me feel alive. I’m a college student with basically no job so I have all the time in the world for animals and their owners alike. Hoping to get a job at the dog shelter near me! Dogs require a special type of love that isn’t always given to them by any random stranger. Cats even more so. The goal is to build a trust with the animal in a way that they can recognize a mutual respect. I’ve had many cats that aren’t “people cats” love me and not be able to leave me alone.

Margie really loves dogs! She'll make sure that not just their basic needs (food, shelter) are met, but also their emotional and behavioral needs (exercise, attention, mental stimulation, etc). She's a great person to care for your dog or dogs!

About: I grew up with two dogs both needing very different kind of attention. I regularly dog sit for family friends. whether your furry family member needs someone to cuddle with in the AC or someone to take a long walk and play fetch with i’m here for it! I’m currently in between jobs so i have all the time in the world to hangout with your pets! so if your pet needs someone to go on an adventure with i’m here for it! I have a fenced yard in a calm part of town. I have a cat but she will most likely hide away when there are other animals around. i have a teenage brother who also loves animals and he is more then happy to cuddle with your pets.

My three dogs and I have used Courtnie T foro three years as our only dog sitter. When we were gone for 10 days or more she would care for them in our home. She visited 5 times a day and cared for them very well. When we had shorter vacations or job trips, we took them to her home. She is trust worthy and very knowledgeable about dogs. Sometimes, we even took the dogs over for a paly day. They just love her and so do we. We have moved out of the area otherwise we would still use her. She has my highest recommendation.

About: I’ve grown up with a minimum of 4 dogs in our house at all times. We’ve had dogs that ranged from Boston terriers to golden retrievers, to American bulldogs and everything in between.... like French bulldogs, and a husky-collie mix. I do well with small and large dogs! A little dog fur never hurt anyone! Love the kisses and cuddling dogs provide! I am currently a stay at home dog mom to an adorable little Frenchton (3/4 French Bulldog 1/4 Boston Terrier) so my schedule is wide open! In my home my little puppy and I spend a lot of time in the backyard playing fetch. While it isn’t fenced in, she does have a tie out with a long leash just for her and she has a blast on it. She knows when to stop so she doesn’t get choked on it and we enjoy our time out there.

About: I had a golden retriever for 13.5 years of my life and I took care of her since the day she was born. I also, on occasion take care of my brothers 7.5 year old yellow labrador and walk him 2 to 3 times a day when he's in town. I enjoy going to Krape Park and walk them there when I can. I'm passionate about taking care of any pet because it gives me a sense of purpose. I enjoy the physical aspect if I need to walk my dog and keeps my mental health in check. I'm always around and willing to give the pet what they need. I find enjoyment in giving them the upmost attention. I believe that routine is key for any pet and it makes them feel comforted.
