“Glendon is FANTASTIC !!! He took such wonderful care of our dogs and home while we were away - 1000% recommend him and his wonderful demeanor !!!!”
“Olivia’s great. She stayed with my 14 year old dog for one night. I appreciated her sending me texts and a picture. I don’t think Molly missed me too much; when I got home, she seemed relaxed and content.I will be booking Olivia again.”
“Tiana was such a pleasure to work with. She stayed in house with three dogs who all seemed to attach to her seamlessly. The house was spotless when I came home. My first experience with Rover was exemplary.”
“Despe was great and gave us pupdates. We'll definitely be using her services again our cat even approved of her which says a lot.”
“Elizabeth was outstanding with Carlos. We have always been worried about having him with other dogs but she was able to work with him each day so that he was able to be fine with her little dog! That is such an accomplishment it’s hard to explain! In addition, she cleaned our irobot, air filter and fridge because she knew how bad his allergies are. She researched the growth on his head and cut his toenails better than our vet! She was amazing and we will definitely call her again!!! Thank you Elizabeth”
“Sophie took care of my sweet pup on multiple occasions when my family and I were out of town. Copper loved Sophie and you could tell how much fun they had together by the way his eyes lit up as soon as he saw her car pull in the driveway! Sophie goes the extra mile to spend quality time with your pet while making sure they are happy and healthy under her care. She is our go to gal when she's in town!”
“Stacie did a great job. She is pleasant, communicative, responsive, and reliable. My dog and cat were content and happy when I returned from a week away. Highly recommend her.”
“Nicole was great. Bella was happy to see us when we got back, but not stressed at all. It was a huge relief to us to have someone we trusted watching her while I took my husband to the hospital for an outpatient procedure. Turned out well all the way around and I would use her again.”
“Selena is incredibly responsible, compassionate, and reliable. She loves animals and connects with them deeply. Her empathy and intuition allows her the ability to discern the needs of people and animals. She also loves walking and being outdoors in all types of weather. I highly recommend Selena to care for your pet both inside and outside of your home.”
“Brynna was fantastic with my spicy rescue - took great care of him and the house while dog sitting! 4 paws up!”
About: I’ve had almost every kind of pet since I was little and have worked on farms and taken care of pets my whole life. I’m familiar with senior pets, puppies, and animals with special care needs. I’ve taken care of possums,raccoons, goats, cows, you name it! I work from home with a loose schedule so your pet will be my first priority! I have many days off throughout the week as well. I have a cozy first floor apartment right in town with plenty of comfy carpet to snooze on and space for crates if needed. I’m always outside and right near a large dog friendly park and a 5 minute walk to acadia national park!
“Very kind and loving person. Our Sahara was very comforted during our absence.”
About: Ive had a farm for 6 plus years, raised a lot of animals. I went to school for vet tech then started working for a kennel. Where I loved it. My currently animals I take care of on my farm is one handsome horse, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs and cats. I studied grooming, I worked a at a very professional kennel that boarded, trained dogs and groomed. Im certified in Pet Safe Handling , CPR/first AID. Basic and Advanced.Im fully insured as well. If you dont like doing payments over the website cash or check is fine. Also Knowledgeable with E-Collars or Prongs if that’s what you use for your dogs. I DO LIVE IN PERRY. But I do travel all the way down to the Southern Part of the state to help all pet owners. 🐾These rates vary! It Varys on distances, nights, chores, how many animals, visits per a day, etc🐾 I’m currently working on my farm and working my other business but I have lots of time to fit grooms, visits, overnights and dog walks in. I don’t do in home till my kennels built. I follow the directions they leave and follow up if anything changes. Med sheets, scheduling, grooming appointments, etc.
“Makenna is a gem! We felt comfortable leaving our dogs in her care. She has a very gentle and calming presence which helps a lot with our rescue dog. Would definitely recommend her and will be reaching out to her for any future trips! Thanks Makenna! ?”
About: I'd love to take your dog on a walk or run or watch them while you're away. I've house sat and dog walked primarily in Bozeman, MT. I'm a medical school student at MDI hospital, and my schedule is quite variable. Happy to be flexible around yours as well, let's figure it out! I'll be happy to watch your animals or check on them in your home, but unfortunately can't watch them at mine since my landlord has a strict policy.
About: I've taken care of my family's two dogs for three years, from daily walks to nightly cuddles. I have cared for my neighbors cats and have worked at a local shelter to take care of new litters (clean up, outside exposure). When I am at home in Maine, I often wake up to my dogs at my feet. I walk both of them (two boxers, total weight of 160) for at least an hour, feed them, cuddle, and give them an evening walk as well. When taking care of other's animals, I have a large backyard for dogs to play in. I live near many trails to walk on. I live in a communal space with housemates who would love to also play with your pup! When staying in your home, I have spent time in other's spaces when working as a summer cleaner. I will take care of your animal(s) to the best of my ability and can complete household chores if needed. My goal as an animal caretaker is for your animal(s) to feel comfortable and happy in the space.
“Our animals were happy and healthy when we returned. Branson communicated and sent pictures so we felt very secure.”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs cats rabbits and horses ever since I was 10. I’ve cared for new born kittens as well as senior cats at the Humane Society for almost 10 years. And cared for my neighbors’ dogs. From volunteering I’ve learn much about behaviors for both dogs and cats and have discovered I have a talent for working with them. I decided at retiring that I would like to begin in home pet sitting earning a living. I also manage an Airbnb with pets and have had great experiences with both dogs and and cats. I’m available all times but desire at least a week in advance notice. Daily weekly and hourly with breaks when needed for managing my Airbnb. Usually to clean after check out. Also per your needs I will need to have a brief break in the day to drive home to make sure my cats are fed and happy with some play time if I am asked to do overnights. I have 4 cats now. They get fed on special foods on a schedule. When they are eating I clean their cat boxes and when they are finished, I clean their bowls. Before they begin their daily naps , I play with each of them. They range in age from 19 to 1 yr. I also check their water bowls throughout the day or night depending. I can give them treats anytime. I also have learned various medical skills and hope to go back to school for a third degree as a vet tech and if life allows veterinary practice.
“Sonia is excellent with dogs. she has watched my three dogs on multiple occasions (two labs and a mastiff), including walking, feeding, and staying overnight. she also has a deep love for all dogs, and is a very gentle and caring person.”
