Heleen was incredible!! She was super dependable and I felt at ease knowing my dog was being taken care of. My dog took to her right away and I was very comfortable with having her drop in to feed and take her to the bathroom while I was on vacation. Very happy and will definitely keep booking with Heleen. if I could give 10 stars I would. :)

Xinzhi helped me in a pinch by visiting my pup the last 3 days straight so I could go back go the office. She even stopped by the day before to get familiar with my processes. She’s super communicative and my pup loves spending time with her!!

Dylan is a great cat sitter and genuinely cares for pets. He cleaned up after my cat and made sure she always had clean water while I was on vacation. I would recommend Dylan to anyone who needs a cat sitter.

Christine was very responsive, accommodating and overall caring and intentional with her care of our cat. Normally our cat can be quite shy and/or sassy towards people but literally the second Christine met her, she gave a sweet meow which is rare. She made sure to take notes and provide the care as close as possible to how we do it. She provided a bunch of adorable photos and I’m so glad Christine was available. We would definitely book with her again and you, reader, should too! 😸

Ray was perfect when he helps watch my dog Lola! Lola is very hyperactive so I do not like leaving her alone. Ray always makes sure she uses her energy whether that be taking her to the dog park or dog beach, he is always super helpful and available when I need him the most.

Gordon is an excellent and reliable pet sitter! It's always hard to trust someone else to care for our dog, Charlie, while we're away but Gordon has proven that he truly cares about animals and really dedicates the time to make sure Charlie is happy and comfortable. While under Gordon's care, Charlie is taken on walks and given lots of opportunities for outdoor play. Gordon even helps to enforce training habits like no jumping or barking. We have complete peace of mind with Gordon, he's the best!

About: I've been taking care of pets since I was young. Had a dog when I was in high school and recently adopted a dog about a year ago. I am patient and will make sure your dog gets the care they need. I work remotely and love spending time around animals because it just brings me great joy. I currently have a 5 y/o Jindo rescue, but I would love to watch and take care of more animals:) Depending on the service, I will not let your dog out unleashed and will read your instructions carefully to make sure your dog is well looked after. For cats, I will follow the owner’s instructions and ensure that the cat is well cared for.

About: I am an aspiring pet owner, who has cat- and dog-sat for friends and family. Until I'm able to have a pet of my own, I would love to care for yours! I'm currently looking for work so my schedule is open. I like to walk or run outdoors regularly and would be happy to take your pet along with me! As long as your pet is potty trained, I am happy to let them roam my apartment. I can also crate them at times if you desire.

Spencer is caring and kind dog sitter. We absolutely happy with how he handled drop-in visits and took care of our dog Bumi. Communication was smooth and he went extra mile to meet Bumi before the drop-in days. Thank you!

Olivia is a fantastic dog mom on her own and her care for her dog is unmatched. She will always go out her way to make sure her dog gets plenty of exercise and always has his food and water. She enjoys going on walks herself, so it is always an addition when she gets to bring a dog with her! Fantastic caretaker and always provides love and exercise!

Casey has been an animal lover and rescue advocate for his entire life. He focuses on professionalism as well as affectionate and compassionate care. He treats every pet like his own and cares for their unique needs and personalities and the manner that their fur parents see fit. He's cared for my German Short Hair (in her many states of mania) and it was a marvel to see her calm down in his presence. Animals just feel safe with him! An added bonus - Casey is adaptable to work and vacation schedules, and can absolutely be trusted with the security of your pet AND your home. Five Stars :)

Veronica was awesom. We were expecting a bad snow storm in Seattle and she actually came a little early to beat the storm, making sure my pup got his walk. Really appreciate her thoughtfulness. Would definitely recommend her and would ask her again to visit my pup when needed.
