Robert did a fantastic job watching my older cat. He was prompt and clear in all his communication and pleasant to work with. My cat takes daily medication and everything went smoothly. Would certainly have him cat sit again!

michelle went above and beyond for her care with velma. I wish I could tip her more but this app tells me no. my (elusive) cat made a mess and michelle handled it without even complaining. and when I had a medical emergency required me to extend my trip, she kept caring for velma without batting an eye. i’m so grateful michelle! thank you. hopefully next time she’ll actually come out and play with you.

Our dog, Sam, adores Celeste! The best review I can give is from seeing how he barely pays attention to us leaving because he's so happy to have his friend Celeste there. She is a wonderful person to have as a resource for when we go away. She is also great at communicating and is very reliable. Celeste is our (and Sam's) preferred dog watcher!

Amy did a wonderful job. She communicated with me at every visit. She went above and beyond her duties. I was out of town for 3 days on a Holiday. When I came back, house looked great. No pet accidents. I would highly recommend Amy for any Pet sitting jobs. I would definitely hire her again. Thank you Amy.

About: My love for animals has always been a huge part of who I am. I have grown up with many different kinds of animals and have had/currently have some of my own! I’ve owned a Saint Bernard who was 20 lbs when I brought him home at 10 weeks and grew into 165lbs of love. I’m comfortable with all sizes of dogs/pets. I currently work as a nurse, so I am very comfortable giving your pet any medications that they need while in my care :) My work schedule can be all over the place, but I usually have 3-4 days off during the week that I would love to fill with walking/playing with other furry friends! I have had pets who are very social and don’t need an introduction time, to animals who are very skittish and need lots of patience. I will always listen to you about how to best approach your pet, just as I would want for my pets :)

About: I grew up volunteering at a dogsledding kennel and eventually started working at the summer camp that was run there. In my 5 years there I learned a lot about exercising, caring for, and training both Siberian and Alaskan huskies as well as the farm dogs there. I gained a lot of experience caring for dogs with medical issues, older dogs and training puppies. I currently work as a nanny/household manager for a family with a black lab and have been working alongside them to help train her in better manners, specifically around food. I also make sure that she is fed and exercised every day. I have a very flexible schedule in my current job, leaving me with time for pet care every morning until the early afternoon, and then again in the later evening. I also have availability to do overnights at the pet owner's residence both during the week and weeknights. I love to bond with pets and gain their trust. I make sure to read their signals and respect their boundaries while also respecting their owner's rules and boundaries. I'm very big on giving love and attention if dogs want it and taking them out to go on walks and get all their wiggles out. When in someone else's residence, I make sure to respect their space and their home.

Great to have Brandon take care of our cat overnight. He managed giving medication and playing laser tag! Kept us updated with photos and feedback. He’ll be on our list to help pet sit again. (And our dog really likes him too)

Very good experience!! Stacey professionally and perfectly followed what I had asked her even those texted to her in the last moment. My Moosh boy is a 17 years old cat with liver problems and others and needed a cat sitter while I was away from home for 2 nights and three days. I was worried if he could be all right as he has been very frail, however, he kept good appetite with her help and was perky when I returned to him. I hope to ask for her help from now on when I need to be away from home.

Julie is a responsible and loving caregiver. In fact, since caring for my babies; Jiggy the cat, Jojo the Airedale, and Kodi the Lab…who I thought were loved and “spoiled” by ME…, I’ve learned a thing or two about happy pets from Julie! Julie is, and I really hate to sound cliche, an actual "animal whisper-er". My little family likes her better than me and thats been tough to swallow. As a pet mom, I've had to learn to embrace the adage that "it takes a village" and our lives are better because everyone is getting more love overall. Julie talks with them and they understand. She feeds them and they like it better. She naps with them, and they pig pile on her…including Jigs. They ignore me, and wait for her by the door. They hold her socks carefully between their paws and show me with their eyes that it's time to call Julie for another visit even though there are no plans to go out of town. Julie knows the intricate details of each personality. She knows Jojo needs constant reassurance and that Jiggy likes to be brushed daily like a cat, but eats dogfood served on the floor with the dogs. I could write a novel about Julie and her talent. But in truth, and selfishly, I don't really want others to hire her in case I need her to be available for us!

We’re obsessed with Melissa, she’s the kindest person and genuinely loves our dog and takes care of him and reads his needs. Knowing she’s with him while I can’t be brings me immense comfort. We’re very grateful for her care.

About: My family and I have owned dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc for as long as I can remember. I currently am the loving mother of our super-mutt Kaia who is 3 years old and Randy, our very large cat. Dan and I are constantly hiking, traveling, adventuring with Kaia and we will do the same with your furry family member! My family always had animals in the house, and back at my family home we have a 13 y/o. Husky/ Kelpie mix, an 8 y/o. Husky/ German Shepherd mix and 2 little kitties! Previously, my family owned a Chocolate Lab and a Siberian Husky. Over the past 20 years, I have been the go-to person to care for a friend or neighbors' dog/pet ranging from small terriers to large german shepherds for week long visits or for a quick walk around the neighborhood! I will love your dog, cat, little critter as if he/she is my own! As an avid nature lover, I care for all animals, big or small. Your pup will be safe with me! My family dog Sadie also has diabetes, so I am well equipped to administer any medication your furry friend May require. I work from home, so I’m very available to care for your pet whenever you need! We walk Kaia multiple times a day in the neighborhood or in the woods path near our house, so your pet is guaranteed to get a workout! We have a 7ft tall fenced in yard that the dogs can run around in all day! Dogs are allowed on our furniture, but please let us know if they are safe with kitties!
