Paul has been an amazing sitter for our anxious dog, Ernie. He has been very flexible with our ever-changing travel plans and has been great at communicating throughout his stay.

Alan was super communicative and made an effort to get to know my dog. He was very sensitive to her needs and went above and beyond to care for her while we were away for a week. Would recommend!

Eryn was so professional and timely from the beginning. She went above and beyond with sending us pictures and letting us know how our dogs were doing. Will definitely be a returning client.

The best!! Took such great care of my dog, Gus! Gus usually doesn’t eat while we’re away, and this time he was eating all weekend. I could tell Gus got lots of love and good care while we were away 😊

Tara watched our two dogs and stayed in our apartment during a long weekend. During our meet and greet, it was obvious that she was a dog lover and felt comfortable taking care of one of our medically complicated dogs. She was responsible and communicative while we were away. The pups looked happy and our place was clean upon our return. We would definitely have Tara stay with Chance and CJ again!

Gabby was a great sitter for Dunbar and Brownie! This is the first time we had a sitter stay in our home and she made it so easy for us and our pups. She is a great communicator and left the house spotless. We will definitely work with Gabby for future needs!

We had a great experience with Megan dog sitting in our home. She came over for a meet and greet before the stay and navigated a logistically complicated situation where we had to split the stay between two sitters. Our pup Brodie took to Megan right away. She was able to administer medication to Brodie and sent us wonderful updates all weekend. She even went above and beyond to wash and fold our bedsheets! We’d love to have Megan back to watch Brodie.

Ángel did an outstanding job taking care of our little doxie, Mabel. He also did a great job caring for our apartment while were out of town, and even left it in better shape than he found it! Mabel is a little reactive to other dogs, so we always get a little nervous with dog sitters and walkers, but he did an incredible job understanding her needs and handled it like a pro. He was also very quick to respond to messages and sent daily updates and photos. Our own building staff even let me know Ángel was very professional and kind. We'll definitely be reaching out again for our next trip out of town!

Catherine was an incredible care taker for our beagle! She sent us tons of photos, was really responsive and definitely took time to get to know our pup and find great things for them to do together - our dog loves being around people so she was reliably around and never left him alone for too long. He got lots of walks and cuddles! Catherine stayed in our apartment and we came home to everything having been tidied up, plus fresh peonies on the kitchen table :) we would absolutely recommend Catherine to anyone who wants a responsible and super attentive dog sitter!

Maria was an excellent caretaker of my senior dogs and a wonderful house guest. My dogs are seniors and can be particular, and Maria handled them so well. She was attuned to how they were feeling and asked questions when needed. I loved getting all the updates from her while I was on vacation. And to top off a great sit, Maria had a very light footprint while staying with my dogs. My apartment was just as I left it and everything was well cared for.

Megan house sat my pup Cairo during a holiday trip during Xmas time. She was great! Cairo was well taken care off, and Megan sent me regular updates, took him out for energy-burning activities that a 1 year old pup needs and always checking with me and ensuring his somewhat high maintenance needs were met :) It was my first experience with pet sitting and it was a super positive one. Thanks Megan!!

Teerith was great with our dog over the long weekend! We are always nervous to leave Sammy behind, but Teerith took the time to learn our ways of handling her and her routine, so that things went so smoothly and we could enjoy our trip without worrying!

Natalia was fantastic! She kept me posted on how my 7yo labradoodle was doing, sent fun pictures, and left my place in excellent shape. Like so many dog parents, I’m a little neurotic about who I leave my pup with and I would absolutely recommend Natalia to others. We hope to use her again in the future!
