Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“She is amazing! Our dog was obviously pampered and much more relaxed than usual when we get back. I’ve never been so confident that she was treated well and our house was exceptionally well cared for as well. She even taught our old dog a new game. 100% recommended.”
“Kelly was GREAT! Very responsive and offered regular updates on how my kitten was doing. This was his first pet sitter, and I will absolutely be asking Kelly to take care of him again!”
“Rosemary did SUCH a good job with house- & dog-sitting my pup in my apartment. Her attention to detail with the care instructions I gave, and how well she accommodated lots of instructions for a higher-maintenance dog, gave me so much peace of mind as I was out of town. I'll be booking her again when I'm traveling next! Thank you!!”
“Lee did a great job housesitting for us and keep in touch with messages and pics. She was courteous, prompt, and professional, and took care of our dogs well.”
“Highly recommend Mackenzie! Very communicative and I knew my pets were in good hands. She sent updates and photos and I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation. Hope to use her again in the future.”
“Missy was diligent about giving the best care to our pets. She sent great photos and made sure we were comfortable with everything. She’s awesome!”
“Sophia was great! Her communication was excellent and Lacey (my very needy, anxious, and timid pup), loved her. I knew my pup was in good hands and well-taken care of. Sophia is an attentive, responsible, lovely dog/house sitter I would definitely hire again, and left my place looking great. Lacey was very happy! I can leave for trips and not have to worry that Lacey will get the care she needs.”
“Steven took great care of our dogs. You could tell he spoiled them rotten. When we had flight cancellations, he was very flexible and was able to stay with them on very short notice. I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
“Clara is a wonderful dog-sitter, she sat for my 13 year old yellow lab who needs a lot of attention. She took her out more than needed, and even took her on walks (something I don’t even do at home😂). Maizy absolutely loves her and I recommend her to anyone needing a trustworthy sitter.”
“Emmalee is amazing! Zena is a senior and dog selective. Emmalee comes to our house and stays. Takes such good care of her. Gets her to eat, walks her, loves her, stays with her and treats her like her own. I wouldn’t use anyone else for our fur-babe! She is a god-send. Thank you!!!!”
“Kyle was great! He stayed in my apartment with Morty while I was in Texas. When I returned Morty was healthy and happy and my apartment was just as I left it. Kyle was quick to respond to messages and provided updates on how Morty was doing.”
Dillon Kennedy R.
“Dillon is great! She is a frequent walker and dog sitter for our cattle dog mix, Luna. Luna can be a bit of a handful and reactive on walks, but Dillon handles her like a pro. I would highly recommend Dillon for any of your pet care needs!”
“Kylie was such a great sitter for us last minute before taking a day trip. She sent ample photos and made our kitten feel so comfortable while we were out. She was very kind, professional, and caring. Would absolutely recommend to anyone for their cat sitting needs!”
“Juliana took care of my 4 year old dog when I went on vacation, she took care of him at my house for a week and the dog really enjoyed her company and the walks they took together.”
“Bailee took wonderful care of our dogs while we were away for a couple of days! She maintained great communication and took the time to get to know their needs. I enjoyed seeing the check in photos :) I recommend her!”
“Liesel was amazing with my finicky and dog reactive dog, so grateful to have someone who knew how to work with her! Provided lots of updates which I really appreciated as well!”
About: I have many years of experience taking care of not just dogs and cats but exotic animals as well such as fish, birds, and reptiles! I also have extensive experience in administering medications to animals. I work full time as an animal keeper from 9-5 Friday-Tuesday. I am available all day Wednesday and Thursday and I am also available to do drop in visits before and after I go to work. I understand that different pets have different needs. And I follow instructions explicitly. I also know how much pet owners miss their fur babies when away so I make a point to send picture and updates.

“Andrew did an excellent job house sitting our dog and cat. It was the first time my husband and I had hired a house sitter and we very much appreciated the work and time he put into putting us at ease. We found him to be trustworthy, honest, very responsive, and kind. I was also grateful to see that he understands both cat and dog behavior (an uncommon characteristic, I've found!) and let our fur babies get used to him in their own time. I hope to book with him again in the future!”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of every kind since I was 13 Neighbors, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed and bathe their pets. I'm currently unemployed ,so I'll have plenty of time to play with your pups! I love animals and caring for them as if they are my own I have a huge backyard and two friendly dogs to keep your fur baby company. I can easily crate your dog if needed or any way you need me to.
About: I am certain your pup will get the love and attention they need while they come stay with me! I have been dog sitting for about 7 years now. PLEASE READ Due to unexpected situations I have been put thru I am un able to watch dogs that have not been fixed. 8/10 times they have been too dominant and acted strange towards my dog who is fixed. I apologize in advance. I also would grateful appreciate if you have to cancel I know 1 week in advance so I can make other arrangements. I typically watch one dog at a time to ensure your pet is getting the love and attention they need. I understand things happen and plans get canceled but just letting me know as soon as possible will help allow me to make room on my calendar for another dog. I work from home so I will be around to keep an eye out and play with your dog(s). I have a fenced in yard as well with a big back yard for them to run around. I am also off 3 times a week so I can take your dog out for more adventures activities on those days. I have multiple rooms in the house to close off. We also have a medium sized crate if we must separate animals apart if need be. I will also be sure to send photos of your sweet fur baby
