“For the first time in a long long time we were able to go on a family vacation and not at all worry about our fur babies! We felt completely confident and comfortable having Arielle house and pet sitting for us. And we even came home to a house that was exceptionally clean! Cleaner than we left it!! Thanks Arielle.”
“She did great job. Kept me informed and excellent problem solving if something came up. Very professional”
About: I’ve been fortunate enough to have been surrounded by pets throughout my life and am a huge animal lover. I recently started a new job that is from 8am-5pm with a hr lunch in the middle, my partner works remotely and we work in tandem to take care of your fur pal! I have a very active physical routine that will provide enough time to make sure your pet has plenty of physical exercise and attention. I would love to work with them throughout the day to make sure they are mentally stimulated and busy. I work extremely close to home which will allow me to check on you animal during my breaks and on my lunch as well as my partner being there throughout the day Before your pet is within my care I would like to talk about what your typical daily routine is like just to make sure that i will be the perfect fit as a pet sitter. I live with my partner in a stand alone house that has a small back yard that is completely fenced in but it’s not the most secure for larger dogs. We are currently working with the landlord to fix the gate for larger dogs.
“Our dogs are very comfortable at Deborah’s house. They are calm and happy when we pick them up. She does a great job - highly recommend!”
“Michelle is so sweet and took such good care of our Loki on such short notice. I came home to a happy and relaxed pup :). Thanks so much, Michelle!”
“Kody took care of our high energy 75 # mallinois and house sat for us for 3 days. We got updates and pictures and he took her to her favorite park. We came home to a clean house and a calm dog who had been walked and fed and cared for. He is definitely our go-to guy for future trips Super grateful.”
“Emily was great. Our animals loved her, she sent updates, and went above and beyond to ensure everything was taken care of while we were out of town.”
About: I'm here to make you and your pets lives a little easier, less stressful and hopefully at lot more fun! I've had pets (and other farm animals) my whole life. Raised out in the country of the Central Valley of California, I've been taking care of animals as long as I can remember. Now as an adult, I have pets of my own. I have 5+ years of experience taking care of cats and dogs, both my own and for others. I have owned both cats and dogs of varying ages (and sizes). I currently have a 4-year-old Australian Cattle Dog and Golden Retriever puppy of my own, so I have additional experience with care of dogs under 1 year old and multi-pet households. I have provided in-house, overnight care for pets for as long as 2 weeks time and have cared for households with up to 5 pets thus far. Additionally, I am a working professional who frequently uses dog-walking and pet-sitting services myself, so I understand having concerns with someone being in your personal space and caring for the pets we love so much. While most days I work from home, when I go into the office I use Rover to have folks swing my and walk my pups! Rest assured, I'm just hoping to give others out there the same peace of mind I get from knowing my dogs are safe and comfortable when I have to be out of the house for long periods of time, and I am always around to answer any and all questions or concerns you may have throughout the process. Looking forward to meeting all your furry little friends! I'm a work from home professional with a very flexible schedule. Other than Mondays, when I am in office, I am available throughout the day and evening to check in, provide play time, go on walks, take potty breaks, feed and just hang out with your pets in usually hour long incements. For overnight and full-time pet sitting stays, I will work with you to understand your pets needs and schedule, and we can determine if I'd be a good fit to keep your fur-baby company. On weekends I am available to provide care anytime through the day. On weekdays I provide drop in services, such as walks and potty breaks from 9-6pm unless otherwise discussed. I am available for overnight and full-time pet sitting stays during the week, but would still need to be available for work throughout the day, and therefore cannot provide 24/7 attention (ex. pets under 4 months, or pets with medical needs that would require constant attention). As mentioned, I am very flexible with my time, so if you are unsure if I could work with your schedule, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm happy to discuss and answer any quesitons. I unfortunately am not offering pet sitting services at my own home while we are still learning about the new respiratory virus that has been going around the west coast. While I would usually be happy to bring along one or both of my dogs to keep other friendly dogs company, they will also be staying home until we know more about the virus. Additionally, I will be taking increased precautions with hygiene, hand washing, and cross contamination during this time. I am happy to visit or stay at your house in order to care for your pet. My own dogs are crate trained, so I can board and unboard your pet as requested. I am very responsively via phone and email, so I will work with you to establish update times and frequency for your pet so that your are always comfortable and in the know!

“We’ve used Cheryl twice now. She’s been an absolute delight! Our cats love her. Thank you for taking care of our fur babies.”
“Sheila took a great care of our pups for 2 weekends. She is calm, loving, and easy to communicate. It was wonderful to work with her. I highly recommend Sheila!”
“Nikki is an excellent communicator and is very on top of things. My dog got sick while she was dog sitting and she gave me regular updates on how she was doing and offered assistance with making sure we got the medical care she needed. Definitely a person you can trust in a potential emergency situation and that's incredibly important when you're out of town. Thank you for all the help, Nikki!”
“Emilie is the best! When we need someone to watch our 2 dogs, Thor and Stevie, we call Emilie. She is our go-to dog sitter. She is responsible and so loving to our fur babies. They absolutely love her too. Our dogs are big and have a lot of energy and Emilie is great about walking them and playing with them. She's also reliable with their feedings and giving them medications if needed. 10/10 recommend!”
“McKennan house/dog sat for us.”
“Elizabeth did a wonderful job staying with my dog and cat. She kept me up to date, sent photos and cleaned up nicely. I was extra worried before my trip as my dog got into some trash the day before and needed a food accommodation. Elizabeth was very understanding and gave me lots of updates which quelled my nerves. I’ll definitely have her back!”
“We were thoroughly impressed with Cecilia's professionalism, reliability, and genuine love for animals. Her attention to detail and responsible nature gave us peace of mind while away. Cecilia's dedication and care towards our animals and home were truly exceptional. She ensured our pets were well-fed, exercised, and given plenty of love and attention. I highly recommend Cecilia to anyone needing a trustworthy, competent pet and house sitter. She is a true gem, and we are grateful to have had her take care of our beloved pets and home.”
