“This past week Etna was scheduled to house sit for 4 days for Kody, our 4 yr old, 125 lb. Bernese Mountain dog. Just befor she was supposed to arrive, she injured herself at her home. It delayed her arrival and care plan. Etna was a true professional in contacting us immediately at the airport to work with us in organizing a care plan. She managed to get a friend to help her care for Kody while she got medical care. She is the professional pet care professional that we all hope for to care for our beloved pets. She even asked me where my cleaning supplies were, so she could clean up after herself and Kody before she left! I am very pleased with my first experience with Etna! Kody was healthy and happy all the long week! And she sent us lots of pictures of him!”
“Rica was great! She communicated often with photos, responded to us quickly and we never had to worry about our two pups while we were away for a week on vacation. We returned to a clean house and everything in order. We wouldn’t hesitate to book with Rica again in the future. Thank you!!”
“Cheryl stayed with our husky for 2 weeks, looking after him and leaving both dog and home in great condition. Cheryl sends great photos, videos and updates. Highly recommended.”
“I have had a standard poodle for the past several years. Daphne Lipton has been an AWESOME pet sitter. She is a very honest and kind human being. I some times go out of town. Daphne has come and stayed at my house for a weekend or holiday. She has sent me progress report videos and photos of how Auggie is doing. Auggie loves Daphne, he gets very excited every time that she comes over. He has a special diet with some medications that we administer. Daphne does a great job following our instructions. Keeping him company and taking him for long walks. She is a gift and a treasure of a human being. I highly recommend her to any pet family.”
About: With over 20 years of dedicated experience in pet care, I bring a unique approach to fostering a harmonious bond between pets and their owners. My commitment goes beyond routine, emphasizing a personalized touch that prioritizes the individual needs of your pet. I am a patient, calm person who loves animals as if they were my own. These qualities create a stress-free environment for pets, allowing them to thrive and feel secure. I speak from experience, having started caring for animals at a young age of 12, where I instinctively acted to help my first dog during a seizure. I do not panic in emergency situations, no matter how dire they may seem, and I believe this makes a difference. I believe that exceptional pet care is not just a service but a sincere connection. My goal is to provide a sense of security for you and your furry companion. Your pet will not only receive the best in terms of attention and care but will also experience a unique companionship based on trust, calmness, and unwavering affection for animals. I am currently working part-time, but my availability is flexible and adaptable to the needs of pets. I am available for boarding on weekends and weekdays after 9 AM. My availability for service is exclusively directed to clients' homes. I am committed to providing personalized and attentive care in the familiar environment of the animal, ensuring a comfortable and homely experience for them. When providing services at clients' homes, I prioritize replicating the animal's routine and familiar surroundings as closely as possible. This involves following specific client instructions, ensuring a smooth transition. Personalized attention, constant care, and open communication are crucial in both cases, providing peace of mind for both the animals and their owners.
“I have used Christian as a pet sitter on numerous occasions and can't say enough good things about him. He is great with a variety of animals (we have a mini zoo:-) and every animal was given plenty of love and attention (including turtles and a rabbit). Whether for walking my dogs, spending a night or two weeks, I always found Christian to be flexible, affordable and dependable. My four dogs always get excited when he comes to pet sit. In addition to walking, feeding, bathing and cleaning up after multiple animals, Christian also left my home nice and clean. I highly recommend Christian if you want one of the best pet sitters and animal lovers to care for your fur babies...he is awesome!”
“Mia was absolutely wonderful with our pups - she's kind, reliable, responsible, and caring! What more could we ask for? We'll definitely be booking with her again.”
“Lydia is utterly fantastic! She did house sitting for us and our fur babies, and our babies love her to pieces! She took such great care of both of them and left our apartment immaculate! She truly loves our babies as her own, and took care of our home like it was her own. I cannot recommend Lydia enough, she is just absolutely amazing!!!”
“I highly recommend Kora. She was extremely patient with my anxious dog and they ended up best friends by the end of her stay. Everything was in order when we returned and she was very communicative during her stay. I will absolutely be hiring her again!”
“Such a wonderful, easy experience with Pat! She loved our dog like he was her own. She sent us daily updates and pictures, and she said our dog even slept in the bed with her and gave belly rubs, so it was quite the relief! We will absolutely book Pat again!”
“Carlos has helped me these months with my 11 month pup, Kilo. They go on runs in the morning and afternoon while I’m at work, which is great cause he’s tired out by the end of it ! He’s showed me great tips on how to train Kilo with commands. Can’t wait to see the bond they both grow.”
“Rick is great with animals, having his own lab at 10, big lovable chocolate. Not only did he teach him to sit, stay, walk on a lead, but to fetch, catch things, wait when he walked away and to never jump on people. All done with kindness and consistency. His current dog he adopted as an adult. Rick rehabbed him into being wonderful and playful with all the needed obedience that are needed for a successful dog. His dog comes first and someone else' would have the same loving care.”
About: I’ve taken care of neighborhood pets as well as my own since I was a kid. When I was 12 years old, I’d go door to door arranging pet sitting/dog walking gigs in my neighborhood. I have many great references from past clients who have relied on me to feed, walk, and bathe their pets while also looking after their homes. I currently work part-time, so I have plenty of time to play with your pets! In the past, I have been able to do long walks (hikes) in the morning/evening and that has worked well. Im a very outdoorsy person so I’m happy to take your pets on adventures with me. I’m a very responsible person and I have a dog and a cat of my own so I understand what goes into caring for them. Im happy to do long walks, as many times a day as needed, and make sure to fit in plenty of play time as well. As far as cats, I have one of my own so I know it’s important to change the litter box atleast twice a day and squeeze in play time for them as well.
“Avery, has been so attentive with our 5 year old golden retriever, Zeus. She is so loving of him, takes great care of him, and is a delight!”

“Tanny did a wonderful job with our pup, as well as taking care of our house while we were away on a lengthy trip. Our puppy seemed happy in the photo's and when we arrived back home, and the house was cleaner than when we left.”
“Grace has been cat sitting for me for almost a year now. She is the absolute best and my cat genuinely adores her. She has kept my cat in her home and also at my house as well when I travel out of town. She is extremely reliable, responsible, and amazing to work with. I’m so grateful to have her and have not had anyone else watch my cat. She’s truly a blessing.”
About: I have had dogs since I was born. Currently have a frenchie at home. I love young and old dogs, have experience training young dogs and caring for older ones (I lost my favorite dog, brindle boxer, a couple years ago). I am currently studying personal training online and coaching soccer. I have time through the day and later at night. Around 3-5 I will be coaching most days during the week. I have a larger fenced in yard for my Frenchie but she goes on walks daily anyways. She eats organic food and I slowly moved away from kibble to meat to help with her bulldog gut issues.
“Myles is a very good communicator. He was the first Dog sitter to contact us, he was very professional and courteous. He did everything that we asked and then some. He checked by sending us pictures of our dog every few days, he even watered our plants and took out the garbage cans. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.”
