I have two shetland sheepdog pups who I adore. They are my world so I was hesitant to have someone walk them out in Richmond. Then I met Miss Samantha. She is the most respectable girl and treats them like her own pets. She knows where the treat jar is and always gives them their reward after the walk. Sweetest girl and the most reliable service. The pups love her so that says a lot. They are barky little things but she treats them just right and will spoil them downright with love. Sweetest girl and she has my strongest recommendation.

Abigail was great with our 9 month old kitten! Great updates every visit, and lots of love and attention. She kept our Pepper on her routine and we didn’t worry at all while we were away.

Anna was great with our anxious dog. Her patience and willingness to try different things to make him feel comfortable was exactly what he needed. By the end of the weekend he was calm and relaxed thanks to her. We look forward to booking her again when we travel.

About: I’ve always had pets in the home since childhood and even managed to care for my dog during college. I still have my Mojo (12 y/o Black lab) and would love the opportunity to meet and care for other four-legged pups. I’m comfortable with dogs of any size and all ages! I live in Southside Richmond and work downtown. My schedule is flexible and I’m open to traveling in and around Richmond to care for your fur-child. I’m hyper aware when walking dogs in neighborhoods, and being mindful of other animals or factors that can lead to a change in their behavior.

Hilary took such great care of our dog, Archie, during our one week vacation. We loved all the pictures of Archie and could tell he was comfortable and happy. Hilary also was so flexible when our flights were changed and had us landing at inconvenient times. We will certainly book with her again and we highly recommend Hilary (and her family)!

About: I've cared for all types of pets for 20 years, ranging from dogs to cats, exotics, and farm animals. I have 4 pets of my own currently and have had many over the years. My clients come from personal connections and word of mouth. I am reliable and trustworthy, and the happiness of your pet is my number one priority. I also love providing pictures! I WFH and make my own schedule, so I can cater to each pet's individual needs and schedule. I am very flexible as long as I have a heads up as to what's needed! I make sure to give one on one attention to your pet even in multi-pet households. I have 4 of my own and I know individual attention is important! I always encourage good manners and use positive reinforcement and treats. I pay close attention to behavior as well since that is always the first indicator that something is wrong. Care and attention to any open windows and doors is also a priority so that every pet is safe and does not escape from the home.

About: I've taken care of my own dogs for years so Ill treat your pet like they're my own baby , they deserve to be treated special , have time spent with them, cuddle with, giving kisses just like they would get at home due to most dogs suffer from separation anxiety they miss you badly I know my Pandora does , I just like to make them know there going to be ok and Mommy and Daddy is coming back ! I can take your baby out for a routine walk in the morning and in the afternoon or help with the weekly routine, get there exercise God knows I need mine Lol ! It helps me be organized to stay on a routine. In my home if I’m in my front yard I would have them on a leash probably just take them for a walk. In my backyard it’s fenced so I could let them out put stay out side with them just to make sure they didn’t get out somehow or jump the fence you just never know what’s going to happen I would do the same thing at the clients house also . My pandora is crate trained so when I leave she gets a treat and takes a nap that’s her safe haven place she just goes in and out of there all day by herself anyway. I would think some peoples are like that also . It’s just to make sure she doesn’t get into anything while I’m gone .

I highly recommend Gabby to any pet-parents needing reliable care. I have a 2-year-old bunny, who I was very anxious leaving due to rabbits' fragile nature and unique care requirements. After hearing about Gabby's 10+ year experience with rabbits and profound love for animals, I couldn't help but feel safe leaving my own in her care. Gabby was respectful of my care routine and displayed a strong attention to the health and well-being of my bunny. She was also considerate of my home and great at communicating. Regardless of your animal's species, your pet is in great hands with Gabby!
