Ally did a fanatastic job taking care of our Cavapoo -- and the home! She was very responsive, caring and attentive to detail ... she made sure he enjoyed long hikes and even a bath. Our Cavapoo warmed to her instantly and I felt total peace of mind leaving him in her care.

India came to stay for one night with our rambunctious big puppy and did a great job. It was our first time leaving him overnight, but she took good care of him and the house… and she sent pics along the way. I’d hire her again! Thanks India!

Dustin is fantastic! He is reliable, punctual, responsive, and experienced with dogs. One of our dogs is a bit anxious and not warm to many people, but Dustin won her over! He sent photos of the dogs throughout the day, and ensured there were instructions for the dog. Dustin is friendly, personable and a great communicator. Thanks for taking such good care of our dogs!

This was our first time leaving our dog Zoey with a sitter and we were nervous to do so. As expected our dog was sad when we left but Cecilia took very good care of her during the house sitting and was attentive to her needs. Cecilia was also responsive and communicated with us updates as well as photos. We would not hesitate to book with Cecilia again!

This was our first time using Rover and we were so happy by choosing Casey. He immediately wanted to schedule a "meet and greet" at the house so the dogs can be comfortable. Soon after, we left for our wedding and our babies were in his hands. We were worried at first, but Casey reassured us instantly with photos of the doggies loving life. He always checked in with us, and sent us photos. We had such a great experience with him and Rover. I recommend Casey for any dog child owner in the area. His knowledge, attitude, and comfortability is reassuring :D Thank you so much! -The Rileys

Catherine stayed at our place for more than 2 weeks to take care of our cat Oliver, and did a fantastic job!!! She made sure Oliver had his medicines every morning and evening, kept his daily routine, and had plenty of love throughout the day and a comforting presence at night. Oliver has separation anxiety yet we came back to a happy cat! And our place was in perfect shape! Plus our older neighbour loved her! Thank you so much, Catherine! We really appreciate your help and we will not hesitate to contact you for our next trip! Thank you!!!

We are so grateful that Bryan was available pretty last minute to watch our 2 dogs and Guinea pig. He was super friendly from the moment we met him and we could tell that our dogs liked him immediately too (and we all know dogs are great judges of character). He made sure to follow the instructions we gave him via a Google Doc and sent PLENTY of update pictures. Bryan kept Cherry and Waffle super busy going on lots of walks and trips to the dog park so I don’t think they even missed us while we were gone! We will definitely try booking with him again in the future!

Olivia is one of the best dog lovers in know. She's extreamly calm and takes great care of any pet she comes across. Any dog would be so lucky to have her watch, walk, play, interact w/it. All breeds and once your dog returns to you , it will want to be back with her.

I was happy to have Gabby stay with Kit for a few days at our house. I felt very comfortable having her there with her sweet little dog and was glad Kit would have a buddy while we were gone!
