Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
“Michelle was such a great help! She took care of our 3 cats for a bunch of drop in visits. They’re really shy and rarely come out for strangers, but they trusted Michelle uncommonly quickly. They’re a lot to take on- 2 of 3 are elderly special needs cats. They get transdermal medications and pills every day. Michelle was able to handle all of that without missing a beat. She is beyond trustworthy, and definitely as skilled as she seems! Don’t hesitate to book her, she really cares and you can be sure she will take exceptional care of your pets :) we won’t hesitate to ask her to help out again anytime!”
“Theresa has been fantastic with our dog Sue! We could tell our dog immediately loved Theresa and was so at ease during her first visit. Theresa is caring, attentive, and communicative, and we’ll be happy to book drop-in visits with her again!”
“Theo is awesome! Super responsive and dependable! My cat was in a great mood after a weekend of visits from Theo, I would definitely book him again :)”
“Extremely thankful for Emily being available last minute to check in and feed our cat for a couple days. She was communicative and very clearly cares about the animals she watches! Definitely would book again!”
“Jamie did such a great job. She actually got my kitty to make an appearance. ? I highly recommend her as your pet sitter. She stayed in touch and I got daily updates and pictures. Thank you Jamie!”
“Michele B. is an experienced and loving dog owner, whose care and concern for her own dog make her someone you want caring for your dog. Making certain her pet had proper nutrition, exercise, proper veterinary care, and time for snuggles, her dog always knew he was loved. I would trust her with any pet I had.”
“Aidan is an amazing dog handler! His personal dog, Monty has taught him so much about training, body language, and leash reactivity which makes him really savvy when it comes to walking a diverse set of dogs. He has a very calm energy which makes him really approachable for even the shyest of dogs.”
“Ella is WONDERFUL and has become our cats’ favorite cat sitter (they told me). Leaving the cats has become significantly less sad and stressful when we know they are with Ella. We have one cat who is very anxious (&a bit high maintenance) and Ella takes especially exceptional care of her. Truly don’t know if we would travel much without Ella around. We come home every time to incredibly cared for cats. Wish I could give way more than 5 stars.”
About: I’ve grown with pets my whole life and grown to love them. I can do whatever is needed to make sure your pets have a comfortable and less stressful time while you’re away. For dogs I can feed, play, walk, and brush them if need be. For cats I can do it all! Cleaning litter boxes (I have a litter robot for those that also have one), play with them, brush them, trim nails, feedings and making sure they’ve got water. Can also do medications if need be. Currently I work Monday-Thursday about 11-12am to 9-10pm I’m available most weekends and typically have a sports league on Sundays I go to. I can be flexible if needed and given some notice, I can’t guarantee it though. In my home, I ensure that my cats get enough playtime and attention when I’m home. We’ve got automatic toys to fill the time while I’m at work. They’re fed separately to ensure they eat their proper portions instead of overeating. They’ve got a litter robot now but in the past we regularly cleaned their litter box to ensure they had a good place to go. I grew up with dogs and would take them on walks, play with them, and try to train them to be gentle. While I don’t have a dog now, I have dog sat recently for an elderly dog and she was as sweet as can be. Provided I have instructions on medicine or other special needs I can be sure to meet your needs.
“Maddie is an avid pet lover and takes care of both of our dogs and cat whenever we are away or gone for long stretches. She has a deep love for animals and what I most appreciate is that she loves playing with the dogs and getting them out for long walks. She is extremely conscience when it comes to her pet responsibilities. I would highly recommend her for anyone needing care for their pet.”
“Sabrina was great! Very attentive to my cats needs and super flexible.”
“Kathryn is always so reliable and very good at communication. She did a great job taking care of my kitten with last minute notice while I was away!”
About: I have had dogs all my life and in the past few years have studied dog behavior and training. I am a firm believer in positive reinforcement and prioritize establishing trust, confidence, and good communication with every dog I work with. Whether your dog is just learning the ropes or is an off-leash veteran, I will meet them where they're at and make sure they have fun along the way! I enjoy establishing a working relationship with clients and have seen consistency be a key factor in working toward any training goal. That being said, I am open to more sporadic pet-care needs and am here to support you in fostering your dogs well-being! In the summer I work full time on a farm, but in the off season my schedule is very flexible. I am available for mornings, evenings, midday drops in, and longer adventure excursions! When working with a dog safety and comfort is my top priority. I ensure the dog is slowly intruded to every new environment and give lots of treats to establish a positive association. Before taking your dog on a neighborhood, I make sure I have an understanding of their comfort around other dogs, children, cars, etc. so that I can help them work through a situation that might evoke fear or aggression.
“Jamie is a very caring and compassionate caretaker. She loves animals and is great with them. I would completely trust her to care for your pet.”
“Tori was able to come over last minute and let my dogs out, take them for a walk, and give them the attention they needed when I was called away to work. Tori did a great job greeting my barking dogs and even took pictures while they got acquainted. I would definitely recommend Tori for any of your dog care needs!!”
“Cara has taken care of my cat and my family’s pets multiple times! She is responsible, a great communicator, and always took care of our pets as if they were her own. I would hire her as a pet sitter any time.”
“Hanna did an amazing job watching my cat for me last month! She was so sweet and patient with her when she was nervous and followed all my instructions. Will definitely be asking her to cat sit again.”
“Ellie is an energetic, enthusiastic pet lover! She has always had dogs and loves playing with them and taking them for walks. She is responsible and reliable! She is a great choice for any lucky dog!!”
“I am extremely happy with Sarah watching my 3 cats. My work threw in a few last minute changes and moved up my trip, she was very flexible and accommodating. We were able to video chat to go over care instructions. She made sure to send pictures which is always helpful when away from your pets. My cats seemed very and loved all the attention Sarah gave them during her visits. I will definitely be rebooking with her in the future.”
