“Angeline is awesome! She took care of our cat and our elderly desert tortoise during our 11 day summer vacation. She made it her priority to ensure our pets and home were well taken care of. Angeline provided daily check ins with us along with cute pictures. She went beyond our expectations especially when faced with the uncertainty of the tropical storm Hillary and the safety of our desert tortoise. She is kind, thoughtful, and responsive. I highly recommend Angeline for pet sitting needs. She will care for your pets as if they were her own.”

“Scott has pet-sat for us many times at all stages of our dogs’ lives. He has watched our dogs as energetic pups, and as senior dogs. Scott is a natural when it comes to dogs- he’s a genuine dog-lover and it shows with his warmth and interaction. He has always made sure our dogs are safe and happy. We can always tell that they received lots of love and attention when we come home because they are so calm and at ease. Our dogs have tricky diets/vitamins/meds, and Scott has always meticulously followed instructions. We don’t worry when we leave our dogs in Scott’s care at all, and we highly recommend trusting Scott to care for your animals. They will love him!”

About: I’ve taken care of a wide range of animals (mainly farm animals) I’ve volunteered at horse and donkey rescue farms so I’ve got to be with many dogs, horses, pigs, cows, & zebra hah. I like training puppies mostly because it’s a really hilarious experience since they are goofy, my pup is still in training herself. I have had 3 senior dogs personally, two have passed due to age and the third is still going on at about 16yrs (probably more since he was a stray hah) but I give him lots of supplements and have him on his own diet that’s very strict so I’m familiar with puppy feeding schedules as well as senior. Pretty easily I’d say I’m a morning person due to my job of working overnights, 9am feedings and afternoon is around 4-5pm, we go to a local park 5 days out of the week for about an hour or two (mainly until my pup is tired) and play fetch to let her stretch her legs, we go on hikes when the weather is good for the both of us as well (no burning paws around here with the hot pavement or dirt!) We usually let them roam (if potty trained) I have one indoor cat that bounces off the walls since he’s very energetic, my other cat is an outdoor kind of gal, she was a stray when I found her so she prefers outside over anything. I have a big yard I’m not sure the measurements but it’s about 40-45ft wide, good amount of space for a GSD, but I have to occupy her with a finding treat game or a hide treat to chew on since she does tend to rip branches off my tree (she’s happy with her talent but it’s very messy) I like to keep my eye on them. Especially if rules apply to others homes then I will respect it, no bad behavior in the house! I keep small objects or anything that looks like a dog or cat can ingest away or thrown out
“We had a great experience with Monica and she took good care of our dogs. It was comforting to be on vacation knowing they are in good hands. She sent us daily videos and photos which we appreciated so much. Monica is awesome and I would highly recommend her!”
“Esther took great care of my very old dog, gave his meds and put up with his very early schedule, and feed my 4 kitties too❤️I recommend her to everyone 🎉”
About: Anyone can say they love dogs. Dogs are just so easy to love. But not everyone an say that they can give dogs the love and care that they deserve. What sets me apart from other pet sitters is my attention to detail. About 5 years ago, my dog Toto developed cataracts in his eyes and needed surgery so retain his sight. After his eye surgery, he needed several different eye drops every day to maintain his vision and keep his eyes healthy. For 5 years, I have made sure that his eyes received the medication they needed so that he can remain the spunky, lazy, happy dog that he is. I have also often taken care of my previous neighbor's elderly dog who also needed regular, scheduled medication. Without fail, he received his medication on time, even if I did have to wrap them up in a treat. If you want peace of mind when you have to leave your furry friends for a while, I'll provide the care that you need and they deserve! I am currently working full time (8am-5pm) but I can make short visits in between my work hours if needed. I am also available after 5pm on days that I am needed. I am always willing to tailor my services based on what your needs are. Whether you pet is a finicky eater, a shy one in the bathroom, or just needs regular medication, I can make sure your pet's quirks are well taken care of so that you don't have to worry while you are gone. I also provide regular photo updates along with my services so that you can be assured that your furry friends are happy, healthy, and thriving!
“Juliann was great with our dog. She played her favorite game (multiple times), keep away, took her for walks and even a drive…Dioji loves to go for a ride.t Thank you Juliann for helping us on our first big trip away from Dioji.”
“Elisa went above and beyond when caring for my dog. She helped work us into her busy schedule and was very flexible with us considering that the hours worked were a bit lengthy. She helped work out a plan that would benefit her and my furry friend. My dog loved spending time with Elisa and didn’t show any signs that he had been upset when in her care. It was also nice to receive a photo of her and my dog during his time with her. I would definitely recommend her to a friend and would be willing to rebook if I ever needed a sitter again.”
“We found Savannah, talked with her, and decided to book her. We were gone for 9 days. Savannah sent us pictures and updates of Indiana almost daily. She spent the nights and cared for Indiana very well. We felt secure that he was in good hands. Indiana was very happy to have Savannah, and he responded very well to her. We would recommend Savannah as a pet and house sitter and will use her again!”
“Jenna is a wonderful person and I trust her implicitly with my dogs and my home. She took care to get to know my dogs, respected their boundaries, but they loved her immediately. I went on vacation without a care because I knew she would make sure they were safe and snuggled. She left my house just as she had found it. I recommend Jenna to pet sit because she will care for your pets just the way you do.”
About: I’ve taken care of all kinds of animals from dogs to rabbits. I have been a huge animal lover since I was a kid. I had a friend once joke and say that my pets had better health insurance than her because of how much I loved and cared for my pets. Clients, friends and family always ask me first if I can take care of their pets when they are gone. I am always reliable and love their pets as my own. I will let your dogs out for potty breaks in between my day at work. They will get unconditional love and attention. My best friend is my pug. My fur babies are my children and will treat your pet the same way. I’m self employed running my own business that has busy days and slow days. If I am responsible for the care of someone’s animals I will make sure to schedule around their care. Potty breaks, food and attention will be considered first. I am a very easy going and responsible person. I have a fenced yard and a doggy door. My pug is the biggest social butterfly and welcomes anyone who comes in our home including cats. She was raised with cats so she loves them like they are her people. Haha She loves to have new doggy friends too. I spoil her like crazy so your pet will be given the same attention and care. I take their safety very seriously. If you have rules for your pet in your home I will abide by those rules.
“Atlas was amazing for our dogs! He took great care of them and was an excellent communicator with us. Highly recommend!”
About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“Julie watched my pets on two occasions now. Each time she was quick to respond to my messages and very pleasant to work with. She provided pictures and updates promptly. I will definitely be contacting Julie again. Thank you Julie!”
“I have known Megan for many years now and she has been great with taking care of my dogs when I go out of town or on family vacations. She is very loving towards animals and very responsible! Your pet will be in great care with Megan! :D”
