She is amazing! Our dog was obviously pampered and much more relaxed than usual when we get back. I’ve never been so confident that she was treated well and our house was exceptionally well cared for as well. She even taught our old dog a new game. 100% recommended.

Liesel is a true dog person, which is so important to me when leaving my rambunctious kiddos in someone's care. She snuggled them, appreciated and met their individual needs and personalities, and sent great pictures. I am confident that they were not only cared for physically, but were also loved on. They got walks every day, they house was super clean when we got home, and Liesel is super communicative. Her questions really indicate someone who understands and appreciate dogs. We will happily have Liesel sit for us again!

Nancy was so great! She helped me out with a last minute need and was so easy to talk to and work with. She kept me posted on my dog with photos and updates here and there and took good care of things while I was out of town. I would highly recommend Nancy for your pet care needs!

Kyle was great! He stayed in my apartment with Morty while I was in Texas. When I returned Morty was healthy and happy and my apartment was just as I left it. Kyle was quick to respond to messages and provided updates on how Morty was doing.

Rose was fantastic, we couldn’t ask for a better pet sitting experience. All of our pets adored her and seemed more than happy in her care. She sent lovely updates/photos of them and wasn’t afraid to reach out with questions. It was the most worry-free pet sitting experience and we look forward to travelling again knowing our pets will be safe and loved in her care.

Chey did an excellent job caring for my "girls" while I was away for a long weekend. She sent text and photo updates regularly making my time away stress free. Came home to very happy pups and a clean house. I highly recommend Chey and will without hesitation use her again. Thanks again Chey!!!

Nell has petsat since she was a young teen. She cared for our aged dog, walking her, keeping her company, and cleaning up after her. I have recommended her to numerous neighbors who have used her services, including running with extra energetic dogs and sending pictures and updates to nervous parents. Polite, punctual, and knowledgeable, you can't find a better companion for your pup!

Elizabeth was great with our weird old dog and aloof cat. She sent lots of updates and let us know things were going well. She’s also a great house sitter. We will definitely book with Elizabeth again. Thanks, Liz!

Olivia is one of the kindest people I know! I'm very picky with who I trust to take care of my dog but I didn't hesitate for a second asking Olivia to help with my dog as she's super reliable and I know cares for my dog as much as I would! She's the first to say hi to any dog in the room and they always gravitate towards her ◡̈

Aubrey always takes excellent care of our home and 3 dogs. Two of our dogs have had behavioral issues in the past and this was the longest we have ever left the three of them together. Aubrey made sure they were all happy and safe the entire time which made us very comfortable and free from worry while we were away. Our home was cleaner than how we left it when we got back, which is an incredible bonus! Thank you Aubrey!!
