Izabelle showed a lot of interest and care for our cat at our initial meeting. She was very dependable and followed our care instructions. She sent several photos of our cat after each visit, though I did have to prompt her to send me messages as to how our big boy was doing overall. She immediately complied, though the messages were brief. When we arrived home it was nice to find our home just as we had left it, as well as a a happy cat who obviously had not missed any meals or treats. I would definitely use Izabelle again

Sierra is amazing. Our girls Gracie and Cocoa absolutely loved her when we were on vacation. She is very responsive and isn’t afraid to reach out if there is a scenario or question. She spends time with your dogs instead of just doing the job and leaving. Thank you again Sierra!

Maddie did such an amazing job checking in on our problem kitties! She made sure to give us a photo update of all of them everyday and checked that they were actively using the litter boxes. Fantastic job! She should be used by anyone and everyone! Her being a vet-tech is just an added bonus :)

She did an amazing job with our two pups. Stopped by on time and gave them plenty of play time and potty breaks. We got some very cute pictures of them playing afterwards which was also wonderful!

Taylor does such a great job with our sickly kitty. Our cat needs to be given oral meds three times a day and Taylor handles it no problem. Taylor communicates thoroughly and has worked to make friends with our shy kitty.

I’m not sure if there is anyone in this universe who loves animals, especially dogs, more than Rachel! She not only spoils her dogs more than most people spoil their kids, she does so for any animal in her care! There’s no one I trusted more to watch my dogs while we all lived under one little roof, and she would be my go to dog sitter if she lived any closer to us now! You want your dog loved and spoiled while your away or at work? Hire Rachel!!

Autumn is my sister and also the "main" owner of our doggo, Jean. She works at a vet clinic currently and has been for a couple of years now. From what I've heard feom both places she's worked, she's amazing at her job. And amazing with the animals as well. Autumn has always had a soft spot for animals, and that's why she chose her career choice as a vet. She's a vet student now at ISU and is an amazing student. She's a very loyal and safe person when it comes to animals/pet and just in general. She's been responsible and loving towards our dog Jean too. Jean Bean is her whole world(and mine) and she gives all pets the same loving treatment she gives Jean. Thank you, Allison R.

Andrea stopped by the house to let our dogs out and feed them dinner. Andrea spent some time with the dogs and the dogs seemed happy when we returned later that night.

About: I've always loved animals. From a young age I always took on the main caregiver role of the family pets as well as occasionally helping out family and friends with their pets when they were out of town or busy. Where I live now I'm not allowed to have a dog and while I do still walk my parents dog for them I'd love to do more. I'm in school and working part time so my days during the week are very flexible. I'd love to help care for and spoil your dog while getting some play time and exercise for myself! I would love to take your dog to a nearby park for a walk or hike, my favorite is McFarland Park. Fetch is always a great game to play with any dog to tire them out.

About: Graduate student with flexible schedule. I have a wide range of experience with various animals, from cats and dogs to hamsters, fish, and bearded dragons to horses and chickens, making me a versatile and skilled pet sitter. Here’s an overview: - 14 years taking care of my pets - 8 years experience being a pet sitter and pet walker in my spare time - 2 years experience in a veterinary clinic in NYC, where I gained knowledge in assisting with injections and providing specialized care. - 8 years of volunteer work in animal shelters, pet day cares, and farms in MA/VT/NY Here are some specifics: - Taken care of pets with chronic health conditions like asthma, cancer, paralysis, diabetes, and IVDD - Administered or helped others administer certain medication (e.g. pills, eye drops, inhalers, etc.). - Trained puppies and adult dogs (e.g., use indoor pad, do tricks) - Trained cats (e.g., use a litter box, run on a cat wheel, how to sit, how to come on command) - Gone on walks with dogs and cats, (long or short depending on their needs) - Given dogs haircuts and showers - Given cats grooming sessions and showers - Brushed dogs and cats teeth - Cut dog and cats nails - Cleaned litter box or indoor pads - Taken care of pets who experience incontinence - Done rehabilitation therapy exercises I have worked with pets who are “owner-reactive”, have a lot of anxiety, or are shy. My doggie came from a rough background so it has been a long but rewarding road to get where we are today. If you want to know if I have any experience doing something or if I am willing to help with something specific, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am willing to take care of your pet as much as I as take care of mine. I prioritize their well-being by having a pet first aid kit on hand and providing a stimulating environment with toys and treats. I will even take care of your plants if you are away! I know how hard it is to find someone to do that as well. I set my own schedule so it is flexible. I am free from as early as 6 in the morning until 11 pm most days. The time I cannot do are Tuesdays 10 am-12 pm. When caring for pets in my client’s home, I prioritize maintaining their familiar routine to minimize stress. I adhere to their feeding schedule, take them for walks or play in the backyard, and provide companionship. I also follow any specific care instructions provided by the client, such as administering medications or adhering to house rules. Communication with the client is key, and I keep them updated on their pet’s activities and well-being throughout my visits. My primary goal is to ensure the pets’ comfort, safety, and happiness while maintaining open and transparent communication with the client to provide peace of mind during my care services.

Tiffany has taken care of all my pets over the years. At one point in time she was responsible for my 5 dogs and two cats. My animals love her and I would highly recommend her to tend to your pets.

While we were away at a wedding, Tiffany took great care of our German Shorthairs! She was dependable, trustworthy, and great at communicating with us. Piper and Jake loved being able to stay at home while we were away. Tiffany let them run off energy in our back yard, played with them and made sure they were well taken care while we were away. Definitely will have Tiffany take care of our dogs during our next trip out of town. I highly recommend using Tiffany to care for your pets while you’re away. It will give you peace of mind they are comfortable in their own home, getting plenty of exercise, water, food, pets and being well taken care of! Thanks Tiffany!!

About: I am a loyal person and trustworthy and I’ll do anything to make your animals as happy as can be. I like to go above and beyond to make an animal feel loved. I work from home so my schedule works great with taking care of animals. I prefer not to be staying the night with animals but be with them during the day. In my home I always make the time to take my dog on a walk at least three times a day. I let her play around the yard. I manage when she eats and she tells me when she needs to go potty. With a customers animals I would be pushing myself to follow their routine for their animals as much as possible and push to make sure everything is down correctly.
