“Jasmine is great with me and my dog! She's rapidly responsive, sends really fun photos, logs details about the walk, and I love that she brings her dog to join Hazel so she makes a friend.”
“Bella is an animal lover through and through. She really takes time to connect with every animal she meets and would care for your animal as if it were her own fur baby. She is a professional and trusting human being who would be a great addition to Rover!”
About: I’ve had animals all my life but have recently started taking care of neighbors pets. I provided services of walks and overnight for both cats and dogs. I am currently home from college so I have a very open schedule this summer to take care of pets as needed depending on the animal. I can easily walk your pet and love spending time with animals. I can easily adapt to the need of individual animals and love to care for them.
“David was professional, on time and good with communication. He did an awesome job walking our reactive pup while making sure she was comfortable.”
“We are over-the-moon so happy we found Shylynn! Our dog took to her immediately, and she was thoughtful in how she paid attention to him during our "trial run" walk in the neighborhood, and just chatting in the house. She let him teach her what he needed and she quickly understood some of his cute quirks. When he didn't want to walk as long as he needed to go potty, she texted us to let us know, and offered to take him out again. She hung out with him for an extended time, and sent us loads of wonderful photos. Shylynn very respectful and professional, has a compassionate heart for animals, and she's a keeper!!”
“Haley is incredible with animals, not only domestic, but with all animals. She has several degrees in animal training and conservation and has worked with everything from dog to lions. Her compassion is unmatched as she provides a safe and hands on approach to every animal under her care. She is truly committed to the care and well being of all animals.”
“Halena was amazing! Our Bear had a blast on each walk she took him on :)”
“I highly recommend Ines! Very good with animals and professional. Will request her next time I'm in Santa cruz!”
“Ollie had a great walk and was nice and tired out!”
About: Hello my name is Kelly! I have an older sister and one of my younger siblings duty is taking care of her beloved corgi. Of course I have no issues with that because I love dogs. I also have experience with dog sitting a puppy chow chow through adult hood when family is away. I recently took care of a friends miniature golden doodle for multiple days overnight. My specific experience is walking them, taking bathes, feeding, and playing. I would also take on house sitting for friends that do end up going on vacation. I’m currently a college student so I have classes to consider but also I get to pick my schedule so it’s pretty flexible I’m also unemployed as well. I mainly would follow the fur baby’s parents and stick to their schedule or whatever they need me to do. I understand it’s their baby, because mine is, so just mainly following whatever their needs are
“I feel very fortunate to have connected with Brianna. She has walked my dog Honey on many occasions and I never worry when they are together. She is super savvy and has great instincts when it comes to my girl, a sweet pit mix. Brianna has all the best characteristics of an extremely responsible dog walker. I feel like she loves my dog ALMOST as much as I do. She is truly a dog whisperer!”
About: During your vacations and out of town obligations, seek assurance for your animals in our Seabright home! We have an active lifestyle during the day consisting of long walks along the beach and harbor for the active dog types; and we love a relaxing time chilling and reading in our fenced in backyard or down the street at the dog-friendly beach for the low key dogs. We are avid friends of all animals, with 15+years experience in animal sitting. Nicole is a dog volunteer for the county animal shelter and enjoyed hosting dogs in the past on a previous dog sitting app! Zach grew up with a husky(and remains fluent with husky-speak) and thrives when he has an excuse to meet and play with a new dog. Our family member, Maya(black lab) passed away last year and while we aren’t ready for a dog of our own, we deeply miss the joy of a canine to join us in our daily active adventures! We look forward to your dog’s company! There is always someone at home during the work week, so your pet will always have someone around to attend to their needs. We like to start and end every day off with a 40+ minute walk. On weekends, we tend to be out and about the town or go for a hike or long walks to farmers markets, play tennis, hang out at the beach, etc. We also garden and love cooking or doing projects at home. Our schedule can accommodate a wide variety of pooch preferences. This is not a business or money-grab for us — we simply just miss having a dog in the home since Maya passed away and would love to bring that animal company back through hosting your dog! For this reason, we will only accept one pet guest at a time to ensure your pet gets the individual care it needs and deserves while you are away.
“Dylan was available to walk Mika on very short notice and was super responsive & friendly. He sent photos and left a great summary of their walk together. I’m sure Mika had lots of fun and definitely trust using his services again!”
“Katie is one of the most genuine, kind people I have ever met. I whole heartedly trust her to watch my dog. She treats all animals as if they were her own and she treats her dog amazing! Murphy (her dog) is always getting walks and going to the park.”
“Angie was very nice and easy to communicate with. She responded fast when I had questions or updates for her and even spent a little extra time with my dog over what I hired her for. She was on time and made sure my doggo was well taken care of. Thanks Angie!!”
“Hannah is a very responsible dog sitter. She has helped me sit dogs plenty of times and although she was a new to it at the time, she provided great help. She knows what to do to give the pet(s) comfort, care, love, and attention. Ibwould highly recommend her as a sitter.”
“Ryan is an angel. Truly! I was in such a crisis when my senior dog had a stroke. He took my young dog almost immediately after my request AND stayed flexible with me all day as I got my senior dog to a vet and back. And my young dog was very happily tired when he got home :-) Thank you so much Ryan!”
“Every time she visited us at home, she treated my pets with a lot of love as if they were her own. Like her, I have senior animals. She even gave my dog a special do ice cream treat. She cleaned up their back yard mess as well. What more could one ask?”
“Harley is conscientious and compassionate animal lover who treats other people’s pets like they are her own. This includes doing everything within her power to ensure the emotional and physical needs of animals within her care are being met. She is truly an awesome pet sitter!”
“Colin was amazing with my high energy dog, took him on a long run and definitely gave him lots of love! I felt super comfortable leaving my dog in his care. He’s also really flexible with timing/ booking.10/10 thank you so much Colin! Boa is definitely looking forward to seeing you soon”
