Taylor and I have know each other for a few years, and she’s always been an avid animal lover. When my family got our puppy, she immediately offered to look after him if the need ever arose. We started with a short over night trip and she was so attentive. She sent multiple updates for our happy boy. From that point forward we used her services any time we went out of town. Her communication is always top notch and every time our pup came back tired and happy. You can’t go wrong trusting Taylor with your fur-baby. She’ll love them like her own and go above and beyond each and every time.

I can't say enough great things about Jenny. She truly is her. As a dog owner who is constantly traveling for work, I needed someone who I could trust to love and take care of my Lab, Duke. Jenny has taken care of him for quite some time now and I couldn't be happier. Jenny loves the outdoors, which makes her even more amazing. My lab gets not only love and energy from her, but also LONG walks! Duke always get excited to see Jenny, as she has a passion for all thing animals! We love Jenny!

Great drop-in sitter. Our two dogs were well cared for and we got several pictures every day. It's a relief to feel like you don't have to worry about your pets back at home while you're on a trip.

Katie is reliable, thoughtful, and very fun with my dog! She’s very conscious of the importance of routine and communication, and I really appreciated that. I couldn’t have asked for a better sitter while I was away. 10/10 recommend her for your pups and will 100% use her again in the future.

About: I have raised dogs, cats, bunnies, horses, and chickens my entire life. I currently have a Pug and a Boston Terrier, both puppies. I work from home and can provide day care, over nights, walks, pop-ins, etc. I am right down the street from Gateway so if you need a place to drop your animal off on your way to work downtown, I make a convenient drop off location. Very flexible with times. Air conditioning inside, large fully fenced backyard, and walks daily. 24/7 availability for pet care so long as we communicate in advance. I work from home and can be available based on your needs. I am available for drop off and pick up any time. There are a few times throughout the day where I will be driving my kids to and from events. We can communicate and work around those times. I also have a keypad. Animals are watched closely in the home and kept inside the fence in the backyard under supervision. When on walks animals are always on leash and are one on one with me. Separate food and water bowls are used. My yard is cleared of excrement daily. All animals must be up to date with shots and worming and flea/tick prevention.

Kayla is very easy to work with. She is very patient and plays with our young puppy when she comes over. She sends a cute picture every time, and is helping us teach basic commands to our rescue dog. I would definitely recommend booking Kayla to watch your animals.
