“Priscilla was wonderful with our timid Sadie! She clearly loved our fur baby, who loved Priscilla in return. She was able to accommodate us on very short notice, and still came over to meet Sadie and learn her preferences before spending an hour with Sadie in the evening. We are grateful for the care Priscilla provided to our girl! Thank you!”
About: I have cared for dogs of other homes on and off for the past few years and this year I am lucky enough to be a dog mom myself ! I'm currently working 10-4 PM Mon- Friday, looking for evening care , weekend care and if close enough can do noon time drop ins ! I am currently in apartment style living so would prefer to watch your fur baby at their home, looking forward to leashed walks and play time!
“Anna has owned pets for years. Primarily dogs. She is a capable caregiver. She is calm, intelligent and caring. You would be fortunate to have her as a caregiver for your pet!”
“Truly amazing. I really needed assistance taking Zeus out while I am at work if it gets too late. I got stuck at work today and I was freaking out about who was going to walk Zeus. I completely forgot about Rover and Michael messaged me back almost immediately, relieving my anxiety. I haven’t used the app in a while but I was in desperate need. I’m glad he was available! I’d definitely use him again in the near future!”
“Selah is amazing with my dog and always takes photos for the Rover card! She is very responsive and even helped me navigate using Rover for the first time.”
“Sam got along with our 85lb pit bull and kept him entertained and exercised. Nothing better than coming home to a happy pup. Will definitely request Sam again.”
About: I have experience with dogs from small to large, puppies to dogs. I have had most experience with mutts and bigger dogs, but love all types. I currently have dog sat for two labs for the past six years, and have a mutt pit/black mouth curr mix of my own. I have a lot of down time throughout the week and weekends to spend time with your pet! I am so excited to spend time with your animals. I always keep a leash on hand. I also come prepared with treats and travel water. I will be sure to always keep your pet in a safe location.
“Elizabeth was wonderful with Fenway. She is so knowledgeable with dogs of all breeds. She checked in with us multiple times and sent some great pictures of Fenway on his walks. She took great care of him and would highly recommend her and would use her again im the future.”
“Ashley is really great with my dogs. She took them in a solid walk and made sure they had plenty of water and treats before she left. I'd highly recommend her for you pups!”
“Rebecca did phenomenal! Definitely recommend! This was my German Shepards first walk ever. Rebecca took a lot of pictures, (good ones too.) She brought her own portable dog water bowl & water so Fin would have water on his walk. Rebecca was super sweet and great with Fin. I’ll definitely be booking with her again!”
“I’m so grateful I found Cheyenne to care for my dogs while we were away! She did a wonderful job and I was worry-free on vacation knowing she was taking such great care of them. I loved her detailed notes and photos! Will def be requesting Cheyenne again in the future :)”
“Alex is punctual and patient on walks with our puppy”
“Nadine was very helpful when I had a medical emergency and needed in-home care for my 1yr old King Charles Spaniel. She is my daughter so this case was a bit extreme, but she was able to take my puppy to the vet, get him approved for a flight with paperwork, flew from Florida to Connecticut with him safely, and housed and cared for him for a couple months while I recuperated. All animals have always loved Nadine and my dog Arlo is no exception but she was incredibly careful to make sure he would be safe and comfortable for the flight. I would never let someone fly with my dog but she went above and beyond to get him the biggest, sturdiest carrier possible for a plane ride and made sure he was calm and happy.”
About: I have had dogs for as long as I can remember. I was always feeding, walking, throwing the ball around, taking the dog out. I have had friends rely on me to watch their beloved animals when they went out of town. I am currently waiting to take my boards so I have lots of free time. I am available anytime of day and mainly Monday- Fridays. I have a bit of a yard for animals to play in. I can crate dogs if needed. I can utilize anything to keep your animal happy and taken care of.
“Katelyn is a very kind and thoughtful person! She was happy to take care of my dog on such short notice and sent me tons of pictures along the way. 5/5 would recommend (:”

“I have Manda watch my dog Luna whenever I'm stuck late at work or when I go on vacation. I call myself a pretty crazy pet mom, I leave pretty straight foward instructions and she always follows through with them and Luna is alway happy to see Manda. I would recommend her to anyone”
“Heidi was the best. She was able to help out last minute for our week vacation. Our dog is not new people friendly and Heidi was up for the challenge. She was determined to get harvey to like her but instead he fell in love with her. We received pictures and videos every day. I found a couple people before Heidi but didn't feel comfortable leaving a whole week with them. I knew from day one that she was the one. Harvey just wants to cuddle and Heidi was there to give him the love he needed. We will be having Heidi come by often for some walks besides vacation visits. I am very happy we have Hedi in our lives.”
