“Hunter is a total rockstar! We are incredibly grateful for her services. Hunter is efficient, reliable, friendly, and excellent communicator. She treated Milo like her own family and this made us so comfortable and happy. Hunter went above and beyond for us :)”
“Samantha helped us out last minute when we needed a last minute sitter for a wedding in town. One of our dogs in special needs, so she requires extra care and someone who we can trust will follow her exact routine and instructions. Sam made me (and our dogs) feel comfortable from the very start. We also received updates and photos so we could have peace of mind about our fur babies on an important day.”
“Thanks Jason! Sorry I was so late with the review and tip . I worked super late that evening and completely forgot. I appreciate you though!”
About: When flip phones were a thing I had a dog & she was my background! My whole life i’ve had a mini partner. As I got older my passion for animals only grew! I have completed my schooling & got my AVA hopefully eventually become a vet tech!! I am currently unemployed & a stay at home mom! (1 child present) I go to the gym in the mornings Monday-Friday so id be out the house for about an hour and half. Besides that, I would be home to make sure your pet gets the care and love he/she will need, probably a little extra on the love. We currently live in an apartment complex, they’re very pet friendly and also offer a dog park. I have one fur baby ! A Boston Terrier, who is fully house/crate trained and lives inside. She is very friendly and loves to play!
“Rebecca was available to come over short notice and provided lots of photos and details from their walk. Winnie def looked like she enjoyed it. Will def use her again in the future!”
“Kiera was wonderful!! She provided lots of details on my dog and my cat. Her love of her job is evident. I really appreciated the photos too! She got some really cute and funny ones. Highly recommend!!”
“Carol took great care of Josie!”
“Melissa is on time and very responsible. She loves animals and they love her back. She will provide great care and is trustworthy and responsible. Your fur babies will love her and so will you!”
“Chad is marvelous. He is professional and does a great job with the dogs.”
“Katie was amazing! She loved and cared for my baby as if they were her own. She started walking my dog just for fun because I had to pick up some extra shifts.”
About: I have had dogs all my life and have one of my own now who loves to have friends and visitors come over! I offer walking services, house visits, and boarding in the Salem, VA area. I work full-time, so I am mostly available for weekend boarding, house visits, walks, etc. While your pets are staying with us, they will be treated with the utmost care and will be guaranteed to have an active and safe time in our fenced in backyard. I have had experience caring for all ages of dogs from puppies to older "puppies at heart," including providing medication orally or shots as necessary. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me and I will be glad to answer any questions.
“We love Brianna!! She’s incredibly kind and my pup loves her!! He’s so disappointed when his time with her is up. We get lots of pics and that just gives peace of mind”
“Logan is always on time and takes good care of my dog.”
“Corey was a great dog walker! I will be using him in the future.”
About: I’ve taken care of my dogs and cats ever since I was 10 or younger. Always been an animal lover and will always treat them like they are mine! Extremely activity college student looking for part time work before enlisting in military. Only commitments I have is family and gym. I’m available up until 1500 during the weekdays. Weekends are up in the air. Scheduling can be discussed! I feel more comfortable keeping animals in their own environment and providing company and daily needs there. Love physical activity so walks are always appreciated!
About: I have taken care of many dogs for friends and family including my two doodles that are both under the age of two. We have been successful in basic training and very social with other pups. I am currently working part-time and have two pups of my own. I am available to care for my own dogs along with others. My dogs are my babies and I would treat yours the same. Their comfort and care comes first! My schedule revolves around the pups being able to feed and let them out on a regular schedule. I have a large fenced yard with a doggy door that is normally left open during the day time (only if I am home to monitor outdoor activity). I also have cameras in my home that can be checked periodically when I am not home. I do have two large crates available if needed. I keep food and treats out of reach and have lots of toys for tug-of-war and catch.
“Cat has been my go-to dog sitter for almost 8 years. My dog loves her and I know when she's in Cat's care I don't have to worry about a thing. Cat is reliable, communicative, and caring. She treats my dog like she's her own which is really all you can ask for in a sitter!”
About: As someone who has worked at pet stores, kennels, and a veterinary hospital in addition to regular pet sitting, caring for animals is second nature to me. My pet-sitting experience includes daily dog walking for owners who work long hours, multiple daily visits for travelers whose dogs do better at home rather than a kennel, and daily check-ins for puppies who need more frequent trips outdoors while they are house-breaking. As an animal-lover, I truly enjoy the time I get to spend with your pet while you work or vacation. I believe exercise, a predictable schedule and one-on-one care are key to your dog having a relaxing and anxiety-free separation from you. I'm completely dedicated to spending time with your pet when you aren't able to. I have a very flexible schedule and will prioritize keeping your pet on a regular feeding and potty schedule that suits his or her needs. I tend to take the advice of the pet owner about their pet’s safety needs. They know their pet better than anyone. I always provide feedback if I notice anything unusual. For example: - Ginger seemed to be limping a bit on our walk today - Max didn’t have much of an appetite this morning - Echo grabbed something when she was in the back yard and ate it before I could see what it was - just giving you a heads up!
“I highly recommend Crystal to watch your pets, she truly is a pet person throughout! She is very flexible and understanding if something may arise, and will send pictures if you like!”
“Kat has been helping with our pets for years, from about the age of nine. She started doing small walks, or checking the litter boxes and food when we weren't home. She has graduated to watching our dogs and cats when we are out of town. She takes the dogs for runs, swimming, and long walks. She feeds them and cleans up after them. She sits with the cats and gives them attention when we are gone. She feeds them cleans the litter boxes. Kat loves animals and is great with them. I trust her with all our pets and am always happy when she is available to give them some attention. She can gauge the need of each pet and determines what type of day they might need. One dog might need her to throw the ball to work out some energy and the other might just need some love. PLUS they all love to see her, which speaks volumes! You can't go wrong with Kat!”
