Aimee is such a gem! She was kind, flexible and professional from start to finish. She came to visit us beforehand to see the space and get instructions for the day to ensure we were all comfortable! I loved her updates and photos throughout the day. She gave my new puppy the love and attention he needed while I was at work!

Professional, reliable, and compassionate, Chenoah has become an indispensable part of my cat's life and mine. I wouldn't trust anyone else to take care of my beloved companion Cookie. If you're looking for a cat sitter who treats your cat as their own and provides exceptional care, I highly recommend Chenoah. Thank you for everything you do!"

We could not be happier with Anne! Between the quick and professional responses when we first contacted her, to Anne quickly taking care of an issue we created while we were rushing to catch a flight! (We forgot to leave food for our kitty, and needed Anne to start a day earlier than scheduled. No problem!). Communication was prompt and perfect, even over a holiday. We recommend Anne without reservation and we look forward to having her look after our pets in the future ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐😸

About: I have had a dog my entire life, including the past 17 with my rescue dog (aka my roommate), who just passed away in May. Rover has been wonderfully therapeutic for missing Sheba. I have also watched plenty of friends dogs and my nephew dog, who was special needs. I’m currently working hybridly with a flexible schedule, so have plenty of time to spend with animals. I am also available typically on the weekends to cover any trips. I live in a two bedroom condo but in a great area for dogs! Plenty of paths to walk to and a dog park nearby.

My dog loves Dorian more than me but I’m ok with that because it means he’s ok when I travel. Dorian speaks my dog’s language and takes great care of him.

Leanna is an amazing pet sitter! I have felt worried before leaving my cats behind with other sitters, but I could relax on vacation knowing that Leanna was taking care of them. She provided regular updates, and took the time to get to learn each cat’s eccentricities. I will definitely rebook with her in the future!

Took excellent care of my Lab, Lenny, and left my house in perfect condition. Santhie is also so warm and kind, and made sure to ask all questions necessary to learn Lenny’s routines. I would highly recommend her services and look forward to scheduling more drop-ins in the future!

Amanda was fantastic. She responded to my initial inquiry immediately. She met with me and my pup immediately after that and took detailed notes of my dog’s needs. She stayed in touch with me while I was away. I would rebook her - without hesitation and with great confidence. I highly recommend her.

About: I’ve taken care of all kinds/ages of dogs. I got my current 7yr old guy when he was just a puppy so I have experience in training. I have also fostered several dogs including ENVIGO beagles. My guy is very calm and relaxed and is a positive influence on dogs that may need more of that calming energy. I currently work 3-4 days out of the week and I’m gone for about 6 hours of the day. I work 20 min away. Other than work I’m pretty much home. I live in a condo and don’t have a yard. I live on the 1st floor so no steps in case you have an older dog. There’s plenty of wooded areas around my neighborhood so a good variety of places for walks. My sweet pup will be an excellent and calming companion for your fur baby esp if anxiety is an issue.
