About: I have been working with animals for as long as I remember. I have taken care of and trained my family's dogs. I am a person whose family and friends try to have to take care of their pets when they're out of town. In a professional capacity, I have been working with different animals (and sizes) for a little over 6 years. I have taken care of dogs, cats, lizards, and fish now. Most of my pet-sitting jobs I have gotten through referrals from friends and current employers. I have a full-time job outside of this. I work 1:30p-9:30p usually having Thursdays and Sundays as my off days. However my schedule is very flexible for the most part and can shift things around if needed. I tend to give at least 1 walk a day with or without a fenced-in yard. After walks, I play with the animals to get out additional zoomies. In that time frame, I also look to see if the animals need to be fed or given any medication. I will go by the instructors given by the owners. I also like to have emergency contact lists of vets, emergency vets, neighbours, and/or relatives in case of an emergency.
About: I've been taking care of dogs and cats of most kinds since I've been in my romantic relationship with my sweetie --- two years. I've helped feed the cats and dogs with their food, played with them, put them to their beds for their sleeps, and cuddle them. Even though I have yet to walk any pets, I'm capable of walking them for their exercise. Normally, I'm working full time in my business, but I for the moment have plenty of time to watch your pups and pets and walk them. Outside of the time that I'm visiting my sweetie and focusing on RD, I'm available essentially everyday thru the end of Raphael's Donuts' expansion fundraiser or till we hit or exceed the fundraising goal of $20000. Even though I'd do this dogwatching and dogwalking gig for the funding of the expansion of my donut business, I will do it because I love playing with pets and I love animals period -- one of the main reasons I am vegan for the animals and have been vegan for 7 plus years! My apartment isn't quite set up for me to watch people's pets there, but I can easily come over to people's homes to watch, walk and care for their pets while the owners are away for work or for getaways. I have access to Uber, Lyft, microtransit and public transit, due to me living an eco-friendly lifestyle that don't involve me having a vehicle or driving.
About: I grew up in the country where we had chickens and cats. I now take care of two dogs, one of them is deaf so we taught her our own sign language, the other one we rescued off the streets of St Louis. I’m currently working part time as a flight attendant, I’m on call about half of the week so I’m available to pet sit on my days off and when my on call duty’s end. I live in an apartment with tons of shared land and a lake in the backyard. We also have sidewalks that go all the way around the complex.
“Katelyn is an amazing pet owner and dog watcher. I leave my 30lbs dog with her regularly and he loves her dog Missy. He gets lots of butt scratches and outdoor play time in her fenced in backyard. I get pictures and videos when they are being extra cute.”
“Very diligent and caring .. thank you”
“Autumn is such a great resource! It makes my life much less stressful to know that she will come in everyday to feed, walk and live on my two senior dogs. She always goes above and beyond to help me. You can't go wrong working with Autumn!”
“I would trust Mandy with my own life so I would surely trust her with the care of my pets. I've grown up with Mandy and watched her care for many of her own and family pets of various species from dogs and cats to exotics like snakes. She is one of the most loving and caring people I know. She does her research and makes sure everything that comes into her circle is loved.”
“Thank you so much for all the detailed updates and taking such good care of my pup :)”
About: I have experience caring for senior dogs, dogs with seizures and heart conditions, as well as some experience with training puppies undergoing service dog training. I’m currently a doctoral student who’s available outside of class and during vacations. I have two pups of my own, a husky and a poodle, so I already spend lots of time with dogs in my day! When walking dogs, I always avoid other dogs because while your dog may be friendly, we don’t know how friendly other dogs in the neighborhood may be. When I swing by for puppy play and potty breaks, even if they are in a fenced in yard I always go outside with them and supervise. If they are undergoing training, if you leave me notes on their current training needs, I will practice their training when I stop by. I like to be very attuned to your dog’s body language when they’re in my care to make sure they feel safe, comfortable, and happy.
“On time and friendly. My dog likes hanging out with her.”
“Danielle is the best dog walker, she is so attentive and treats my dog like her own. She’s very communicative, reliable and trustworthy. Would highly recommend!”
“Meg is great with my puppy, Rizzo! She is timely and always sends great recaps and pictures of my dog. If you’re looking for someone who genuinely cares about dogs, Meg is your girl! We consistently use her every week!”
“Mackenzie has been great to work with. She is super responsive, reliable, and great with our pup. I would highly recommend booking her to take care of your furry friends ☺️”
About: I have been working with dogs professionally for over a 2 years now, and very experienced in dog body language and behavior! With that being said, I specialize in aggressive/reactive dogs. As someone who lived with a reactive dog for 8 years, I understand how stressful it can be to go on vacation or leave for any period of time. I believe that every dog deserves a chance reguardless of any triggers or reactivity. Because I do specialize in aggressive/reactive dogs, I do require multiple meet-ups before a stay. This is so each dog can feel comfortable with me before I come into their territory. Please contact me for details. I am a big advocator of mental and physical enrichment. I also like to be home with the dogs as much as possible. I am capable of crate training if need be, but will not crate unless it is for safety reasons. I do not require fences and can use slip leads.
About: As a life-long lover of animals, I’ve taken care of my own cats, dogs, horses, birds and other small animals my whole life. I have recently begun pet sitting for others and find that I really enjoy the opportunity to meet and spend time with other people’s pets. I’m currently semi-retired, so I have plenty of time to take care of your pets while you are away. I’d love to keep them company and make sure they don’t miss any meals while you are away. I will spend time with your pets in your home and send you daily photos so you can see how they are doing while you are away.
“They were kind and calm with my 60lb hound. Always had the pup in comfortable control on walks and my pup LOVED playing, hiking, and walking around town with Stevie. Very reliable and trusting human, exactly what I was looking for in a dog walker!”
About: I've taken care of my dogs for 5 years and a cat for 2 years without issues. When I was little I had a couple dogs too but I wasn't the one taking care of them.

I'm taking care of mine My dogs are insidr the house everytime but when I let them out, I have a fenced yard then they come right in when they finished.
