David has been awesome with Roxi! He is great at communicating if he's running late, when he is grouping her together with other dogs, and clarifying if something looks odd in the schedule. He has been really accommodating with last minute changes, and making sure he prioritizes her safety.

Eryn was great! She was very communicative and quick to reply to any questions we had during our trip. Our cat got sick two days before we left for our trip and needed a lot of medications to be administered during Eryn's visits, which she handled perfectly. Eryn was sure to give our cat Sardine lots of love but also provided space when Sardine was still feeling sick and not as friendly. Overall, a great experience!!

Lauren was our dog sitter during the holiday break. She provided regular updates with short videos, photos, and comments. It was reassuring that our pet was in great hands, and we were able to truly relax during our time off.

Anya is a warm hearted, gentle, and caring person in every facet of her life. She cares for her animals with love, compassion, and a true listening ear. Whether it be her birds, bunnies, or young and senior dogs, Anya’s dedication to providing pets with comfort and respect is always palpable. She will take into account any and all specific needs and requests you provide as a pet parent and will never let more than a few minutes go by without letting your pet know how precious they really are. She has always treated my puppy as if he was her own and I couldn’t feel more comfortable knowing he’s in her care when I need to step away from home.

Sasha is absolutely wonderful! My two cats love spending time with her when I am out of town on vacation! I love the overviews and pictures I get while I am away, she does a great job giving my cats each what they need! She takes the time to play with them, turn on the water faucet, open the windows and gives them a lot of attention! Every time I get home from a trip they are always happy and healthy!

About: I have a French bulldog who is 3 years old and grew up with a pug in my household. I have experience walking reactive dogs on leash as my dog is reactive towards other dogs. I love walks around the city and will gladly take your dog on a hefty walk if they are up for it! I particularly love smush face doggies but think dogs of all shapes and sizes are adorable. I will gladly play with dogs indoors or outdoors but outdoors only on leash. Dogs have my heart and I will make yours feel loved like my own! I am currently a graduate student and have a varying schedule week to week. I am always available evenings and weekends. Afternoons and mornings during the week will depend on my schedule that week! With walks, I keep dogs leashed at all times and only walk dogs one at a time. I like to ensure I have full control and protection over your fur baby at all times. I only give treats provided by the owner that are left at home and only give treats if advised it is OK.

About: My name is Gabby and I would love to walk or dog sit for your dog! I just finished the last of my classes for my degree in social work and will be receiving my diploma at the end of August. I’m looking to care for dogs (and cats!) while I work towards getting a job in my field. I have dog sat for several families over the years, but I have unfortunately never had a dog of my own! I learned a lot about dogs from caring for my grandparents’ dog, Puff. When I lived near my grandparents, I would walk and play with their dog, Puff. True to her name, Puff was a fluffy Bichon Frise. She was really sweet and absolutely loved attention. She was a rescue, and was always a bit anxious. She needed reassurance whenever my grandparents left the house. Puff let me know that she needed attention by pawing at my hand and showing me her belly. It was obvious what that meant! Spending time with Puff taught me how to handle anxious dogs. I understand that it is hard for dogs to be away from their owners and I know that I have to be patient and to be a calming presence for them. I am definitely willing to care for dogs that need a little extra care and reassurance. (Having cats my whole life has also prepared me to get to know animals that time to warm up to new people!) I am very active and can can keep up with dogs that have a lot of energy and need a lot of walks. There are plenty of parks nearby that I would love to take your dog to! I am a reliable and careful dog sitter, and I want to make your dog feel cared for during the time I spend with them. I’d love to hear more about your dogs and what they would need from me as their sitter/walker!

Lexie did a fantastic job taking care of my cat during a 10-day vacation. He was happy and relaxed when I got home—not at all anxious, which he has sometimes been when I've gotten home from longer trips. She also helped water my plants and sent lots of great photos daily. Would absolutely book with her again!

About: Hi! I'm Mary Kate and have been lucky enough to have had cats since I was in second grade. I grew up with my two girls, Callie (Calico) and Kedzie (Tortie). We lost Callie a few years ago and we just said goodbye to Kedzie at almost 19 years old. I cared for her until the end, including medication and subQ fluids. I would consider myself lucky to take care of your kitty/kitties, as I know how much my cats meant (and still mean!) to me. I would take care of your baby like my own. My roommate is allergic to cats, so I'm not able to adopt right now. I miss my babies everyday, so I would love to spend time with your kitty/kitties and make it a win-win! I'm a full-time grad student and also work as a babysitter and substitute teacher per diem. I am typically available in the early mornings and from late afternoon onward on weekdays. Weekends are very flexible. I have a clean background check and consider myself to be reliable, responsible, and detail-oriented. I aim to give you peace of mind that your beloved pet is in the best hands! I am a full-time grad student and have a flexible schedule. I would be looking to do visits in the early AM (between 6-8) and from the early evening to later (4-9) I would ensure that your cats are safe, healthy, and happy! Services include: -Cleaning food and water bowls -Providing fresh food and water -Litter box maintenance -Medication administration (*I would want to make sure we do a trial run before to ensure you, me, and your kitty are comfortable!*) -Brushing/grooming -Daily pictures and videos -Cuddles and scratches -Plenty of play and enrichment I am also happy to water plants, grab the mail, or other small tasks, as requested!
