“Christine did a great job of dropping in and feeding our kitty while we were gone. She even gave him extra snuggles and attention which he always appreciates :) would definitely love to have her take care of Momo again!”
“Debra was so amazing and accommodating for a last minute request. I will definitely be reaching out to her again in the future! Extremely thorough and kept good care of Hibiscus!”
“Patrick was the perfect choice for taking care of our cat! His excitement and joy for taking care of animals comes through in every interaction. He paid close attention to all care instructions we provided and we came home to a happy, healthy kitty.”
“Was respectful toward Eepy and took care of her while I was gone.”
“Emilia is very responsible and I also appreciated her upbeat personality. We, and our four legged kiddos would love to have her back. This was not an easy assignment since there was no way to reach us during our absence and our kitty did surprise us all.”
“Sarah was excellent! She dropped in and checked on our very young puppy to feed her, give her a potty break and— most importantly— for some play and snuggles! She sent us picture updates and definitely made us feel better about leaving her at home.”
“Alexis is incredible with our pup and we trust her immensely! She has dog sat for us countless times and every time we’ve picked Obie up we can just tell he had such a great time with her! Alexis is responsible and reliable, prompt and thorough. Would 10/10 recommend her!”
“Burcu is the definition of an animal lover. She has been passionately fostering dogs for several months and is the first person friends ask if they need someone to dogsit their pup. She is caring and loving with dogs, gentle and patient, and at ease handling dogs of any breed, size, or disposition. Being around dogs makes Burcu incredibly happy, and I'm more than confident she would be an exceedingly responsible and loving caregiver for any dog.”
“Michelle has watched our dog many times and been phenomenal each time. Great updates and pictures. I highly recommend.”
“Paula is wondrous human who loves plants & animals & is quite the dog whisperer, providing canine friends with the love, nourishment & outdoor adventure in natural places that the doggos need and crave. Being a tuned in Dog Mama of several herself, Paula is acutely aware of the personalities and needs of each unique animal and, with this keen insight, can customize personal care for your pet. I would recommend her 💯❣️🐶💞”
“Nicole is the best. Not only does she visit, but she brings the love.”
“Excellent sitter. Incredibly patient and knowledgeable with timid cats (and timid cat owners). Communicated with us frequently and with great detail -- always showed up on time as we requested to keep a consistent schedule for our two furry friends. Highly recommend!”
“Sophie took excellent care of our cat. She was very communicative, reliable and sweet to our cat. She also took great pictures. She paid close attention to all of the care instructions. Our cat loved her from the moment they met. I highly recommend her!”
About: I’ve had dogs all my life, with experience in dealing with puppies all the way to senior dogs. I've trained my own dog, Maggie :) as well as my family dogs. I have experience taking care of dogs with behavioral issues and aggression and am well aware of body language cues. I believe only in positive reinforcement and reading when a dog is not giving consent to be pet or approached. I also have experience with administering medication orally. I really love cats as well! I have experience sitting for cats with medications and dietary restrictions as well as having roommates with cats. My hours are flexible so we can work together to make things work best for you and your pets. I’m currently on a hybrid work situation, so I can be available most days of the week. I go in to work Mondays but am available before 8am and after 6pm depending on your location. Just let me know what you need and we can figure it out! I’m good with leash training, I can run or walk dogs. I love to help with different command trainings, and use only positive reinforcement when on walks. For home visits, I can follow any directions needed for the dogs or cats, including required medications. I am careful and attentive about locking doors and following instructions.
“Raquel took care of our 1 year old puppy and our two cats (4 & 5 years old) while we went on vacation. We had never left our animals for more than 2-3 days and they’d always stayed at our parents houses. Leaving them for longer and not being able to have family watch them was really stressful for us. But were so glad we asked Raquel because not only did she take wonderful care of our pets, she also took great care of our house. She made sure to reply back to me when I messaged her and even sent me some photos. She really gave us peace of mind while we were away. It was so nice knowing that we could relax and our pets were being loved and well taken care of. We love Raquel and will be calling her the next time we need someone to watch our fur babies. :)”
“Nick's love and care for animals is unparalleled. He has years of experience dog walking and pet sitting, and has a distinct sense of responsibility for every kind of pet and their individual needs. I have seen his dog Joni go from being scared, skinny dog from a pound to a warm, playful pup while in his care. I absolutely trust him to care for any animal he comes across.”
“Kaitlin checked in on our two cats while we were away for three weeks. She played with our very active cat and tired him out enough that he didn't tear up anything around the house. She was also able to entice our other very nervous kitty out to play. The cats were perfectly set with food, water, and litter the whole time she was taking care of them. She even indulged our active kitty on a walk, which we have never trusted a pet sitter to do before. She managed to keep him safe and occupied while he sniffed around the neighborhood and climbed trees. She sent us some very cute pictures of their adventure. Kaitlin has also been working in vet medicine for several years. Our cats luckily did not have any health problems while she was taking care of them, but we felt comfortable leaving them with her if something did come up. We also asked her some vet questions we had been wondering about and she had very helpful answers. Overall, she went above and beyond taking care of our cats.”
“Angela was absolutely awesome! Both my dogs are somewhat neurotic rescues, and one has severe skin allergies. Angela did a great job watching and hanging out with them, and sent lots of pics of them playing and having fun! Highly recommend.”
About: I’m an experienced and professional cat sitter and cat mom to two beautiful fur babies. I have the expertise and patience to meet their unique needs. I understand that cats can be nervous or shy around new people, so I always take the time to build trust and establish a comfortable environment for your cat. Additionally, I am reliable, detail-oriented, and a great communicator, so you can rest assured that your cat is in good hands while you're away. I love taking photos of cats and provide detailed updates. I do work, so I prefer evening visits. Weekends are more flexible where I could do mornings or evenings as best suits you and your kitty’s needs. I am very considerate of your home and pets. I can water plants or check mail if needed. Just let me know what you need.
“Thanks Alanna! Our dog really took a liking to her, she gave us regular updates and left the house in really nice condition. Would hire again.”
