Brittany was amazing. She has great attention to detail and remembers all your pet’s little quirks and their routine. My pup fell in love with her and it was great that she was sooo excited to see her after pouting all day about being home alone for the first time. Super professional, kind, and fun. Odette looks forward to seeing her again!

Jessica was great - she was responsive and easy to communicate with. My cat, Juniper, seemed like she was in a great mood when we arrived home from our trip. I would absolutely book with Jessica again.

About: With over 10 years of hands-on experience in pet care, I bring a depth of knowledge and a genuine love for animals to every pet sitting assignment. My background includes caring for a diverse range of pets, from playful puppies to serene senior dogs, ensuring each one receives the attention and care they need. Special Skills: Puppy Training: My approach is gentle and positive, using reward-based techniques to encourage good behavior and build trust. Senior Pet Care: I understand the unique needs of senior pets, including administering medication, managing special diets, and providing extra comfort and care. My goal is to make their golden years as comfortable and joyful as possible. Behavioral Management: I have worked with pets of varying temperaments and behaviors, including those with anxiety or fearfulness. My patience and calm demeanor help create a soothing environment where pets feel safe and secure. Custom Care Plans: Every pet is unique, and I tailor my care plans to meet the specific needs of each pet and their owner. From feeding schedules to exercise routines, I ensure that every detail is covered. Communication: I believe in maintaining open and frequent communication with pet owners. You'll receive regular updates and/or photos of your pet, so you can have peace of mind knowing they are happy and well-cared for. My dedication to pet care goes beyond just fulfilling basic needs. I strive to build a bond with every pet, understanding their personalities and preferences, and providing them with a loving and nurturing environment. When you choose me as your pet sitter, you can rest assured that your furry family members are in experienced, compassionate hand Pet care is an integral part of my daily and weekly routine, and I approach it with dedication and structure to ensure each dog receives the best care possible. I am currently looking after dogs part time and always looking to meet new furry friends Ensuring the safety of the dogs in my care is my top priority. Whether at my home or my client's home, I take several precautions to create a secure environment. When taking dogs for walks or letting them play in the yard, I use sturdy leashes and secure fencing. I supervise all outdoor activities to prevent escapes or encounters with other animals. Building trust with both the dogs and their owners is crucial for a positive pet care experience. Meet and Greet: I offer a meet-and-greet session before the first booking. This allows the dog to become familiar with me and helps establish a sense of comfort and trust. Consistent Routine: I follow the dog's usual routine as closely as possible, including feeding, walking, and playtime schedules. Familiarity with their daily routine helps reduce stress and anxiety. Clear Communication: I maintain open lines of communication with pet owners, providing regular updates and/or photos. This transparency helps owners feel secure about their pet's well-being. I know how important it is to create a comfortable and enriching environment for the dog's physical and emotional health. Client's Home: When caring for dogs in their own homes, I respect the owner's space and follow their specific guidelines. I keep the home tidy and ensure the dog is comfortable in their familiar surroundings. Positive Interaction: I engage dogs in stimulating activities, including interactive play, mental puzzles, and socialization opportunities. This helps keep them happy, healthy, and well-exercised. By prioritizing safety, building trust, and providing a nurturing environment, I ensure that every dog in my care feels secure, loved, and well-cared for. My goal is to create a positive and enriching experience for each furry friend.

Faye was so wonderful and sweet handling all of our requests. We have two birds and two cats and she was willing to check on everyone, give medicine, and change cat diapers—not an easy task! She sent us photo updates and stayed in contact with us along the way while we were out of town. I didn’t have to worry about anything. Thank you Faye!

Gab took excellent care of Laila while we were away. He monitored her ongoing eye issues closely, took her on nice long walks, and kept me up to date on how she was doing while we were away. Gab took care of Laila as if she were his own pet :-). Thanks, Gab!!!

I am always hesitant with new people watching my pup, but I was in a last minute bind with work and took a chance and I’m super happy I did! Kailee is amazing with animals! My dog absolutely loves her and warmed up to her right away which is very rare. You can tell how much she loves animals the first time you meet her. She will be my go to for walks and sitting from now on. Highly recommend!

Natalie took care of our dog Sophie over a long weekend. She did an excellent job! The dog had recent surgery and had some activity restrictions which Natalie followed very closely. She sent us texts, pictures and comments with each visit! This helped us to know that the dog is very well taken care of and the pictures showed us how happy she is. Natalie spent time and pet the dog with each visit. Upon our return we found a happy, and healthy dog. We are planning to use Natalie’s services again. We highly recommend Natalie! Thank you Natalie!

About: I have always loved pets! Most recently, I spent two years volunteering with the Duke University Puppy Kindergarten. In this role, I assisted in training and caring for puppies from the Canine Companion Center. These puppies eventually undergo additional training to become service dogs! Additionally, I contributed to research efforts, focusing on the social preferences of the puppies during their time in our program. I currently work part-time, which allows me to be available at various hours throughout the day. I am highly flexible and willing to accommodate your schedule! I will prioritize your pet's health and well-being, treating them as if they were my own. I will maintain open communication and ensure your pet receives the excellent care they deserve.

About: I have taken care of the family dog for 16 years, and I adopted my own dog that I have had since 2014. I adopted my dog when she was three months old, and provided her with the care and attention that every dog deserves. I adopted another dog in 2023, so I have two dogs of my own in my house. They are very sweet girls, and I will provide the best care for your dog as I do for mine! I am very flexible with my schedule, and can keep my pet parents updated with any information they want to know about their pet. I am technologically savvy, and would be very responsive when it comes to any inquires or requests. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you and your dog! I work from the morning to afternoon, so I walk my dogs before I leave work in the morning. I live close to where I work, so I stop in for lunch and to check on the dogs. Pets have a safe environment with access to a fenced-in backyard. Nearby parks allow for other good walks, and there are many dog beds that can be used inside the house.

I recently went out of town, and Grace volunteered to take care of my dog, Lily, while I was gone. For that period of time, Lily was taken excellent care of. As per my request, Grace regularly sent me updates on Lily, taking away one of my stresses while I was away. Lily was regularly taken on lengthy walks so that she would not only be able to take care of her business, but also enjoy the outdoors. When I reunited with my pet, Lily was glowing (as best as a dog can). She had a pep in her step and seemed as happy as ever. Grace took excellent care of Lily during that time period, and I know that Lily received lots of love and affection with Gracs!
