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!

“If I have to go out of town, Jennia will come to my house to feed my pup, Rico and my cat, Skitty Monroe. I give her access to my house to stop in to feed them twice a day with play time each visit. My furbabies love her. She is very gentle and kind with a heart that loves animals. She is sure to send videos and pictures of Rico and Skitty which helps me to be at ease knowing that they are well taken care of.”

“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.”
“My first experience with this service, and Sydney made it a wonderful one. I felt confident my doggie was being cared for, and that meant I could relax. Sydney sent updates and pictures too.. Thank you Sydney!”

About: I have had experience at an animal daycare where pets boarded overnight. I've worked with animals from pugs to pitbulls! I also own two cats. I work overnight shifts from 11:30PM-8:30AM on weekdays and 9:30PM-6:30AM on weekends. During those hours, animals can sleep inside, I have an EBO camera to watch them during the night. They should be asleep during these hours. I don’t work during the daytime so I can keep an eye on any fur babies I’m sitting. Most time will be spent outdoors if the weather is nice. There’s also multiple dog parks in the area that I can drive to. In a clients home, I'm open to any rules and regulations implemented by the client. I like to spend as much time outside with pets as possible. If no outdoor space, I'm okay with staying inside. I'm also open to traveling to nearby parks for playtime and potty time. In my house, again, I like to spend as much time with the pets outside as possible. My neighborhood is very pet friendly and there are several dog parks and other parks nearby. My apartment has an open yard if owner doesn't want pet to travel far. If owner requires only indoor care, I have potty pads and treats on hand. I do own two cats that will be kept away from non cat-friendly animals. CAN PROVIDE UPDATES IN THE FORM OF PICTURES, VIDEOS, AND TEXTS IF REQUESTED! I love to keep owners up to date on their pets.
“Mollee is amazing & we highly recommend her. She goes above & beyond when pet sitting & we feel she is 100% trustworthy. One of our dogs isn’t very friendly with strangers & she was comfortable with Mollee right off the bat. Mollee spends a lot of time playing with our dogs & they just love her.”
“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.”
“Daniela was a life saver for my pup and I ; she was able to help me out in a crisis and was very responsive and provided updates to me timely which made me feel very comfortable! I will definitely be using her services again.”
“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 a dog care giver since I was 16, my family members always relied on me. Thye knew I enjoyed it so I was the most reliable.

In my clients homes I make sure all rules are respected as far as if they want their pet only outside then they will not be allowed in while I'm watching them.
