“Haven’t had a perfect person to take care of our pup. Gabby has done a fantastic job with Reno. Reno waits patiently 1/2 hour prior to walk time for Gabby. Warms the heart. Thank you Gabby”

“My dog and I love our walks, so when I broke my foot, Chloe was very confused when we didn’t do our normal walkies. I contacted Meghan who responded right away, and happily took Chloe on half hour and even some hour long walks on a regular basis. She is kind, reliable, communicative, sends photos, tracks the walk, and Chloe seemed to really enjoy walking with her. Thanks so much Meghan!”
“Everett gives Oakley the BEST walks! He turns every walk into an adventure and goes above and beyond every time! Oakley loves him and we are sure lucky to have found him.”
“I hired Sharon to walk my dog a couple of times since I broke my foot. Sharon is friendly, punctual, and used the app to track her walks. She seemed to really enjoy the walks, and my dog was thoroughly exercised. I will look for Sharon if/when I need a dog walker again, and would recommend her to anyone!”

“Paige was responsive via messaging and very patient with our puppy! I appreciated her positive disposition. I will definitely be reaching out to her again.”
About: As an animal lover raised in a household with dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, and even a turtle, I have had experience caring for pets since childhood. With my beloved 10-year-old golden retriever named Kona, I've navigated the joys and challenges of both puppy energy and senior pet care, handling various health issues along the way. My experience extends to my two cats, Bessie, the older gentle soul, and Joey, the energetic orange rascal who rules the roost. I understand the importance of trustworthy and compassionate care for furry family members, ensuring they receive love and attention while their humans are away. Rest assured that they will be in good hands, and that you will receive quick and clear communication throughout the process. I have experience administering medication to both dogs and cats, including oral medication, subcutaneous injections, and ear/eye drops. I am available at just about any time and/or day of the week - My schedule is extremely flexible given some advance notice. Please let me know if your animals have a specific schedule or routine that you would like me to follow. My approach to pet care centers around creating a secure and nurturing environment for animals within the familiarity of their own homes. I do my best to keep your pets on the same routine that they are accustomed to to ensure the least amount of stress while you are away. This commitment extends beyond feeding and walks; it encompasses building trust with each pet, while ensuring their comfort, security, and happiness. I will make sure to provide regular photo updates and prompt communication regarding any issues that arise - I know how important this is when leaving your pets for an extended time. You can have peace of mind knowing that your companions are in the care of someone dedicated to maintaining their well-being.
“Janelle has been incredibly helpful with my 2 year old mixed breed named Bowie. She has spent so much time with him, playing fetch in the yard, routine feedings while I’m traveling and was extra generous with giving him some love and cuddles. Janelle has so much patience and attentiveness when it comes to helping training him, he learned specific tricks, or even demands and it was helpful for me in the long run. While I’m at work she has been helping me out by popping in to let him out midday for potty breaks and yard time. I highly recommend her with your fur babies!!! Bowie just loves her too!”
“Trina was incredibly helpful in dealing with my demanding dog on such short notice. I would highly recommend as she is very communicative and professional.”
“Sophie is one of the best pet sitters I have ever worked with. She is patient, gentle, kind yet able to control my German Shepard with ease. She is very professional, reliable and flexible. She has natural ability with dogs of all temperaments and personalities. I highly recommend her.”
“Excellent care for our little dog Koda.”
“Ashley is very good with animals and has a good sense of awareness with dogs as to what can be a trigger for it and knows how to get dogs out of a situation if need be. She is very caring for the dogs, as well.”
About: 12 yrs experience pet experience. I'd def want to meet ahead. I know they're family. I'm mature, reliable. No double booking. I'm very transparent and direct. Every family/pet is different. I'm about positive persuasion and trust. Not into choke collars or aggressive re-directing. Patience is key. Really clean water and food bowls are important. I prefer sm-med size non aggressive dogs. I love animals. I'd like to set up clients, for a continuous care relationship. Right now I'm available part time. I'm looking into cpr and training. I do have 18 yrs of medical background and dealt with my dog in old age. I've given meds and follow precise directions for medical and foods. I have patience to care for older dogs too. Watch for health signs. Always fresh water regularly and correct portions of food. Clean up after them. Diaper if needed. Stay on the floor and play or brush them. I talk to animals so they know my tone. I know not to create bad habits that are different than your established guidelines. I think that's important.

“Diana treats each pup as if they are her own! She has always been respectful of my requests and preferences as well as of my puppers ! My dog is wary of new people and doesn’t love too much attention from others that are not us. Diana has amazing patience - to where my dog will now sit close, respond to commands, and easily goes on walks with her. I highly recommend Diana if you are looking for someone to care for your fur baby!”
About: I have had family dogs my whole life and grew up walking dogs and dog sitting for family members. I was raised on a small farm in rural SW Washington. I worked as a Kennel Hand for 5 years during my college years at a boarding kennel in Vancouver, WA. I have extensive experience (both personal and professional) working with and training dogs of almost any size, age, breed, and temperament. I also have experience caring for cats, rabbits, and even chickens, pigs and goats! I love dogs but I also love cats and all other animals! I love to walk outside rain or shine and my own dog is getting older so I would love to give him a break and walk your dogs for you! I currently work from home and have afternoons/evenings and weekends free. I love to walk and my Australian Shepherd Petey has recently let me know that he prefers shorter walks as he’s getting older. He has some joint issues that prevent him from doing the long distances I know he would like to do otherwise. I spend my days working at home with him and would love to stretch my legs after work and help walk your pups or check on/play with your cats! I have 25 years of experience with animals ranging from small rodents to larger farm animals. I find immense joy in interacting with animals and I especially love dogs and cats. I enjoy training dogs and would be more than happy to spend some time practicing tricks with them in addition to walking. I am a firm believer in the sniff, dogs get so much information through their noses so I like to let them get every sniff they can out of their walks!
“Chloe is a great dog sitter/walker! She took such good care of my Westie and Golden while I was travelling and my dogs were staying at a friend's. She walked them and played with them daily. She also sent pictures of the adventures they had together. It's obvious she really loves dogs and is great with them.”
About: I've grown up with dogs and cats all my life. Just starting out in the walking business, but I'm super excited to meet new animal friends and give them a fun experience. I currently have a full-time job, but I try to fit pet care into my free time whenever I can. I will usually be available Sunday afternoons, though. I live in an apartment complex that has a fenced dog area. There is also a nice small park across the street from me. I don't currently have any pets of my own.
About: I am a remote teacher & pt substitute. I have two mature dogs who are the active & the sweetest. We go on three scheduled walks a day, as well as time off leash in a fenced area on my block. One old cat & I have owned a bird previously. It would be my pleasure to help your family out! I work on my own schedule so I can easily adjust to help you! I wake up early and take my dogs out multiple times a day. I can very easily work with your fur baby’s needs. I have a open back yard and there is a large soccer field walking distance near my home. I am comfortable traveling to homes or hosting myself!
About: I have cared for pets for the past 10 years and I love being out in the beautiful weather walking and caring for animals. I have a lab mix who is a wonderful part of our family who will love to have friends to walk with. I have a lab mix who loved to go for long walks and we enjoy going out on walks and playing with all different kinds of dogs. I have a clean, no clutter home that is very dog friendly. I have a grown son who cares and loves all dogs. We do not have a fenced yard but enjoy walking throughout the day.
