Samantha watched our young dog, Mav, for 8 nights when we were out of the country. She did an excellent job keeping us up to date with pictures and messages while we were away. Highly recommend her!

Madlyn is awesome. She was quick to respond to our request for a pet sitter and was very accommodating to our schedule. Madlyn took very good care of our special needs miniature poodle. Madlyn administered required medications twice a day, mixed up special dietary food twice a day and made sure our dog had plenty of potty breaks. She also took the dog for a walk in the afternoon as requested. Madlyn was also very respectful of our home and even made the bed before departing on her last day. We returned from vacation to a happy, well-cared for dog. Highly recommend Madlyn for your pet's care and your peace of mind.

AJ was fantastic and took wonderful care of our pets and home. Our dog and cats seemed so happy and relaxed when we got back, and AJ even scooped boxes and took out the trash before leaving. Thank you!! Looking forward to booking you again.

Eliza did a wonderful job taking care of our sweet pup, Teddy!! She was very attentive and took care of him like he was her own dog. She took him on walks in the morning and gave him lots of cuddles in the evenings. Also, she took great care of our house. Eliza send me lots of updates and pictures which I greatly appreciated and put me at ease. 10/10 would recommend her to anyone and will be using her services again. Thanks Eliza😄

We love Nyla! She is absolutely amazing and so kind. She took such amazing care of my boys while I was out of town. Nyla understood how to handle my reactive dog very well and had no issues in handling situations with other dogs or people. She took them to the parks for walks and gave them lots of cuddles. When I got home she had cleaned the house for me, washed the linen and even did a cute tp fold.

Chelsea was awesome! Kiyomi is usually timid and cautious of people but warmed up to Chelsea quickly. We were gone for 10 days and returned home to a happy cat and well kept home. Will definitly be a repeat customer!

Michelle did a great job with our geriatric cats. Medications were properly administered and the cats quickly warmed up to her. She also kept us informed with texts and pictures and dealt with some unscheduled package deliveries.

Lily has watched my dog on several occasions and is very good with him. He takes a while to warm up to people but she's been very patient with him. She has experience with both younger dogs and higher needs seniors and is very conscientious when it comes to the well being of animals in her care. I'd trust her with any pet of mine and highly recommend her.

Alex is so sweet and took amazing care of our two dogs while we were away for a week! They sent regular updates and was really communicative, and flexible with our travel plans. The pups had a great time! They also left the house clean and tidy. We would easily use Alex again!

Audrey is an amazing pet sitter! She was actually the very first person we ever left our puppy with when we went on vacation! We had a high sense of trust that our puppy was in great care while we were gone. She sent us fun updates and pictures which we really appreciated. When we got home, we could tell our dog had been cared for well and had a great time with her! She even watered our plants and grabbed the mail for us too which was an amazing bonus :) Highly recommend having Audrey watch your furry friend! She will do a great job!

Bianca did an amazing job with our two dogs! We reached out to her a few months in advance of our trip because our older dog has epilepsy and wanted to make sure she was comfortable with that. In between our first meeting and our booked trip, our older dog changed his medication schedule and our puppy unexpectedly went into heat the week before. Bianca was so helpful and supportive every step of the way as things changed. She kept us updated and sent pictures and videos while we were gone and both dogs seemed to love her. I would definitely recommend Bianca!
