“Ryan went out of his way to communicate with us and send us pictures. The house was in great shape when we got back. I hope we get to use him again!”
“Lupita was excellent. Kept me informed about the dog's happiness throughout the stay. I completely appreciate how much she cared about Sammy. Highly recommend!”
“We’re so happy to have found Doug! We had never left our two pups with anyone and we were pretty nervous about leaving them for so long. Doug came and stayed in our home with them six full days, keeping them on their normal routine. He sent multiple pictures and messages each day and left our home spotless. Our pups were totally relaxed when we got home so we know they had a good time. Totally recommend ?”
“Marissa was great! Took excellent care of my big kitten!”
“David was kind, attentive, and checked in whenever he had a question about Ruki. He left the house in good shape too. I highly recommend him; he is prompt in responding to contact and very responsible, gentle, and experienced. Thank you David for the affectionate care you showed Ruki!”
“Briana has cared for our dog on several occasions both at her house and at our house. She is a loving caregiver and I always felt comfortable leaving our fur baby in her care. She would send us photos of our pup so we knew how he was doing while we were on our trip. I was so sad when Briana moved out of our neighborhood because she wouldn't be able to watch our dog as easily. Our dog often takes me to Briana's old house on our walks because he was so happy there. Briana has also house sat for me, and watched my kids. She is very kind and responsible. I very strongly recommend Briana to care for your fur baby! She is great with dogs.”
“This was our first time working with Lissi and it won’t be the last! She took excellent care of our anxious dog and cat and left the house exactly as she found it. She looked after our pets with tenderness and confidence and communicated frequently when were away for the weekend. I highly recommend her!”
“Jamis did an excellent job w/ our dogs on Thanksgiving day. He sent multiple texts and updates, and took the big energy guy on a nice walk. We couldn’t be happier with his work!”
“I had Michael house sit for me for a few days and watch my cat Simon, and he was awesome! The house was super clean when I got back, my plants were all watered and happy, and Simon was clearly well taken care of. He's leash-trained and loves to be outside and Michael took him for walks! He's a super clear communicator and I left feeling confident Simon was in good hands. Thanks again, Michael!!”
“Makinna is a caring human that has taken great care of my non-human babies. I trust Makinna to feed and water my dogs and cats, and she takes the extra time to play with them and give them cuddles while I'm away. I highly recommend her.”

“Mac is the best! She not only watched our young pup but trained him too! We are so grateful to have had her stay with him while we were gone. Thanks a million, Mac!!”
“Vivi was amazing! She was responsive and came over for a meet and greet prior to my trip. My dogs loved her! She helped ease any fears I had with photos and messages daily. Vivi took them for walks and to their favorite beach for some off leash fun. I highly recommend Vivi and will definitely ask her to care for my beags again in the future.”
“Emily was my primary dog walker and wonderful with my 2 Bernadoodles. They were always excited to see her and she went above and beyond. Took them on long walks and tired them out. She is honest and reliable.”
“Julia has watched my lovely older lab (13) and my adorable mini poodle mix. She was fantastic with both. They were well cared for and loved. You couldn’t find a better pet sitter. She’s responsible and caring.”
“Riley took care of Klaus very well. She is very flexible and communicative. I would highly recommend her.”
“Hannah was amazing! She took amazing care of our baby for two nights during our wedding and was super flexible as we threw weird scheduling stuff her way. I’m a total helicopter dog parent and felt really at ease with Hannah in charge, and our dog was stoked to see her when she came to pick her up on the second night.”
“Ethan did a fantastic job watching my kitten and house! He went above and beyond caring for my kitty and was great about keeping me updated. He also sent lots of great photos! Will definitely book with him again next time I’m out of town!”
About: Hey! I'd love to establish some clients in area on the side. Here's some stuff about me: -Worked at a pet salon for over a year handling dogs and cats of all sizes and temperaments. I'm not scared of the big boys and am confident in my ability to handle animals and a safe and responsible way. - I have a great amount of experience with seniors and pups. I can administer medication or follow specific feeding/health protocols. (I give my own cat her inhaler for her asthma) -I can handle fearful/reactive pets. I own a scared/reactive chihuahua who sometimes barks at people and dogs, so I would be mindful of my surroundings and try to keep triggers to a minimum. I work Tuesday-Saturday 9-3 so I would be free after that for walks or check ins. I can house sit on my weekends I own a car to drive around if needed I have the experience to create a safe environment. Through my job at the pet salon, I know how to approach a wide variety of dogs to gain their trust. I own a cat with asthma and administer her medication daily. I have a dog who's reactive/territorial so I've learned how to maneuver that.
“Marcos has pet-sat for us several times and we are so happy with him! More importantly, our dogs just love him. It's clear that he has a special connection with animals. He is also caring and responsible and follows any specific instructions (medications, etc) we leave him. It is so nice to be able to go out of town for the day or multiple days and know that our fur babies are well taken care of!”
“Daisy took care of our terrier Zoe for two weeks ! When we returned she was happy and healthy. The house was as we left it and our garden was thriving, couldn’t have done a better job myself ! Thank you so much ! Highly recommend!”
