“It was a pleasure to meet Jeanette and my big dog warmed up to her right away. She was great with communication too about scheduling and arrival time. Jeanette obviously knows dogs and asked great questions about his needs and behaviors. We look forward to having her again!”
“Cassie is an amazing pet sitter, every time she has taken care of my dog rose she sends me pictures and I know she’s in good hands. She’s very caring for dogs and thinks of them as family, this is why I feel so comfortable when she takes care of my dog. She stays and plays with my dog, and I will keep recommending her to anyone I know as a pet sitter.”
“Brooke was amazing with my special needs dog! He doesn’t have full control of his bowels and bladder, and Brooke was kind enough to clean up his accidents and change his diaper. I felt so comfortable with her walking, feeding, and taking care of him. Brooke was also very responsive and easy to communicate with. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to walk my fur baby! Will definitely contact her again in the future.”
“Andreea was so great at communicating and helping with my dog! Andreea accepted my short notice request and went above and beyond to care for my dog even when the weather wasn’t looking very great. I have a difficult time being away from him, but Andreea gave me a sense of ease. I will definitely be reaching out again for future care! Highly recommended!”
About: I grew up in Shueyville with many and varied pets: Dogs, cats, lizards, rabbits, mice, chickens, horses, goats and any other animal I found in need. My current brood consists of 1 mini Aussie, 1 cat, a mini macaw, 8 hermit crabs (the oldest is softball size!), and a plethora of chickens! Life is good on a small farm. :) I’ve previously worked for 10 years as a veterinary assistant, then a technician, and finally the clinic office manager. I also operated my own pet-sitting business for 3 years. I always send videos & pictures every time I stop to visit your pet, or while they board with me. :) I would love to love your pets while you can't be home! **boarding inquiries please note that I have an elderly, front-declawed cat in my home. She likes dogs (will head-butt and groom them), but your dog must be GOOD with cats.** I’m now self-employed and work from my small farm/home. I build coops, pens and sheds for the public as I get orders. I’m rarely away from the house for more than two-three hours at a time, and I’m able to adjust my work schedule to accommodate any need for flexibility. Pets I watch are treated with the same love, kindness and care as that which I give my own pets. They can’t care for themselves and rely solely upon us to maintain a good life for them. I treat ALL animals with respect and love, and do my very best to ensure they feel top notch while under my supervision. My ultimate goal is to help pets and owners feel comfortable! Traveling is so much better when you know your pets are having a blast with someone you can TRUST.
About: I have experience working with both dogs and cats. I have volunteered at animal shelters working both with cats and dogs. I went to school for vid assistance.

When I have taken care of pets at a client’s house. I stay at the house to take best care of the pets. To help them not be out of place.

“Sarah and her husband did an amazing job watching my dog. They updated us everyday by text and sent multiple pictures. You can tell he had a great time”
“My dog is 3 years old, but enjoys her walks. Ana takes great care of Gretel.”
About: I enjoy exercising with my own pup and we go on adventures often. I can do anything from walking to running your dogs as well as relaxing inside if they hate the cold weather! Plenty of water around for swimming in the summer and a Jeep for rides with their heads out the window. Always been a dog lover and have raised pups since before I could walk both male and female and different breeds and sizes. I would love the opportunity to watch your pups! I’m a student nurse so I have very flexible hours and am only at class for short hours on the days I do go. I can’t wait to meet your life long pals and families! Dogs make the world a better place and need to be cared for just like we do
“Nikki came in to our home while we were on vacation to let our dog out and did a great job. Her and my dog had never met but she made her feel comfortable when she came in. She could have just let her out to the bathroom and left, but I appreciated her staying for awhile and playing with my dog and her toys before leaving since she had been staying home alone for long days. She also ensured she had enough water and food each time she let her out while also ensuring she kept our house locked up and followed proper safety measures like taking our dogs collar off when she came back in the house. I would definitely have her come care for our dog again!”
About: I love all animals! My retirement dream is to spend my days with dogs and cats. I decided why wait! I have cared for dogs and cats for over 30 years. I have always had my own pets, but I have also cared for friends, family, and neighbor's pets over the years as well. During the week and the school year I work with children. There is nothing I love more than coming home from a busy day and spending time with animals. During the day I have time over lunch for dog walks or pet care. After school hours, weekends, and summers are free to spend time with pets. In my home I have a lot of area for pets to roam and lounge around. I have a fenced yard and I enjoy walking the trails around my house with dogs. In your home I will follow your expectations for your pet. I will talk to them, play with them, and give them lots of love.
“Anne has cared for our dog, and was exceptional. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to all breeds of dogs, and has helped me train mine. Anne also has a heart of gold and treated our dog with all the love and attention.”
“Tiffany is very caring for animals. She’s involved with rescue and spent years fostering dozens of dogs until they found their forever homes. She will make sure your pets are well cared for and loved while they are in her care.”
“I’ve been putting off writing a review for Sally because I’m afraid she will get so busy, because of my glowing review, that she won’t have time for my dogs. 😬 Selfish, I know, but she is truly amazing and you’d be crazy not to trust her with your dogs. The thing I love most about Sally is that she takes care of my dogs the same way I do, and I know she just adores them. She takes them on a walk everyday while I’m at work and will play with them at home. She’s so kind, reliable, and trustworthy. You can’t do better than Sally!”
About: I have always had pets, but at this point in time, we are unable to have any pets of our own. Because of that, we would love to take care of yours when needed! I have experience with cats, dogs, and turtles - both in my own home and at others' homes. I have a young son (1.5 year old) who adores pets of all shapes and sizes. I have a part time job, but I am home pretty much 24/7. I am able to accommodate your pet's needs when it comes to outside time (walks, playing, etc.), feeding schedule, and quality time. Pets in our home are a part of our family - they will be the center of our attention because we don't have any pets of our own (except fish)! We do not have a fenced in yard, so they would need to be leashed for bathroom breaks. There are several nearby parks we would love to take them to stretch their legs.
“Trisha is a person who truly enjoys caring for animals. She loves her own pets very much and would easily adapt to other pet’s needs. I would highly recommend her for pet sitting as she has a proven history providing great and loyal care to a variety of animals. She’s patient, kind and responsible.”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs since I was in high school, from family members, neighbors, or friends! I have owned a variety of animals myself and just adore all animals. I even spend a lot of my time at Petland in Iowa city as seen in my profile picture I volunteer to get in some extra puppy snuggles. I can provide services for dogs, cats, smaller animals. Any fur baby that you have will win my heart over. My previous job experience is something that shows how much I really care and love being a support system for others. When I was 15 I got my first job as a Resident Assistant in a Assisted living home, helping residents with every day needs and residents in the Memory care unit that need a little extra help (getting ready for the day, baths, helping them eat, make crafts + create activities to keep them busy, exercises, and just a helping hand or company when they need to talk or just be there to listen). I have also been a Nanny for Iowa Elite Nannies since 2018 and pick up shifts for numerous families around the area. I have always had a passion for caring for others and just love to be a friend rather than it just being a source of income. I’m currently not working and doing interviews for a Dental Assistant position. While I’m not working I want to be able to still be active and get in as many hours as I can and being able to be with animals is a plus! So my schedule currently is open for any hours. I am renovating a house so with all the things that’s going on at my home I’d prefer to come to you for a better safer environment for pets at this time. I am very active and love going on walks and playing with pets in anyway I can to make sure they get all their zoomies out.
About: I grew up with animals and that helped me become the animal lover I am today. I had one animal that was constantly sick, so, I do know how to give medications in various ways. I have a dog that even a trainer could not train to not pull but, I have learned to become patient with the pulling. I love walking my own dogs and I just want to share that with others that need help. I am currently working a 9-530 job. I can help out before and after my work hours as long as it is not an issue! I have a fenced in yard and 2 dogs that love to play. We have lots of toys and is by a trail that runs through the neighborhood. We are also not far from some dogs parks and water for swimming if wanted.
“Nichole is easy to communicate with for scheduling and coordinating visits and dog walks. She has been great dealing with schedule changes due to COVID and winter weather. My big lab mix is comfortable with her and doesn't get stressed out by her visits when I'm gone. Highly recommend!”
