Jacob did a good job with our boys and they definitely didn't make it easy on him. I was impressed with his patience in dealing with our excitable puppies. I will definitely book him again. ?

Alex did a good job with our cats and dogs. Sent lots of pictures and communicated with us at the end of each day which was nice. We felt very comfortable.

Schuyler has been a close friend for some time, and in that time I've seen how much she loves animals. She's very caring and proud of her dog Copper but will always take the time to give affection to others, like my Pitbull and my Rottweiler, both of which I would entrust with her if the need arose.

Lena is a gem! We couldn't ask for a kinder gentler soul to care for our pups in our home. She was very attentive with our elderly fur babies which left us at ease to leave home and enjoy our vacation. We've already booked a second trip with her! It's a wonderful feeling knowing you can entrust your pups (and home) to such a sweet person. 5 out of 5 stars? We'd give her 10 stars if we could!

Having seen Alex with his own dogs and relied on him to care for mine at times, it’s easy to see that Alex loves being around and caring for animals. With animals, he is patient, knowledgeable, and playful. And as a caretaker, he is communicative and thorough. Highly recommend!

I'm delighted to share my experience with Kayla as an animal caregiver. From the moment I entrusted my beloved kitty Milo to her, I knew I had made the right choice. Kayla is an exceptional animal caregiver who goes above and beyond to ensure the well-being and happiness of her clients. Her deep love and passion for animals are evident in every interaction. What sets Kayla apart is her dedication to providing a safe and nurturing environment, whether it's daily walks, playtime, or simply cuddling on the couch. My cat meows with excitement every time he sees Kayla, a testament to the strong bond and trust they've built. Furthermore, Kaya is highly responsible and reliable. She consistently ensures that my Milo is well-fed, and stays active and engaged throughout the day. I have complete peace of mind knowing my cat is in her capable hands. Kayla also maintains excellent communication. She provides regular updates, photos, and videos, so I never feel far from my kitty, even when I'm away. It's a level of transparency and dedication that truly sets her apart. In summary, I couldn't be happier with the care and attention Kayla provides. She is a animal lover, and the professionalism and commitment to the well-being of pets is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend Kayla to anyone seeking top-tier care for their furry family members.

Nafawna did a great job for our dog's litter girl and Pablo! She sent daily pictures. and updates while we were gone. My dogs had so much fun playing that they slept much of the day after. She treats them as her own. I highly recommend Nafawna as a pet sitter!

Maddy is reliable, responsible l, a great communicator, and LOVES animals of any kind. She will take care of your pets as if they were her own with lots of love and care. She has had lots of experience and has been around dogs, cats, horses, pigs, fish and rodents. In addition to taking care of your pets, she will also respect your home and neighbors. She will not take advantage of your hospitality and will leave your home in the condition it was left. I would highly recommend Maddy fir your pet/house sitting needs.

Richard is, hands down, the best pet sitter I have ever had! He is extremely reliable, communicative, knowledgeable about all sorts of pet care, and goes the extra mile to make sure all my fur babies get the love and attention they crave. He is great with dogs of all sizes and energy levels, and I've seen him charm even the shyest of cats with his calm nature. I highly recommend him as a trustworthy sitter for your furry family members!

Christina has been absolutely amazing for our family, especially for our 14-year-old border collie-mix, Winnie. Each time she's taken care of Winnie, she has shown incredible patience, love, and understanding towards her special needs and old, but active age. Her attentiveness to Winnie's diet, exercise, and any medication schedule has given us peace of mind while we're away. It's clear Christina not only loves animals but also understands how to care for them responsibly. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable pet caregiver. - Alex T.

About: I’ve had pets my whole life and have been caring for them since I was able to! I’ve wanted to work with animals since I was a kid. I took 2 years of vet assisting classes in High school. I also worked at a kennel and boarding facility for a year and a half. I also worked in a vet clinic at a kennel attendant. I have worked with puppies all the way through senior dogs! I have training experience as well as my grooming certificate. I have worked with aggressive dogs in the past. I am super passionate about working with animals and love hanging out with them! I have a fur baby named Raya as well! I am currently working a full time position 8am-5:15pm though out the week. I have 1 half day during the week and work 2 Saturdays a month until 12:15. I can do weekend care and even stay if needed on weekends. I can do walks anytime during the weekend or after work! I’ll work with anyone willing to work with me! Unfortunately I am unable to have dogs at my home:(. My dog is unfortunately dog aggressive towards medium-large dogs. We have done lots of training and working towards our goal to be nice everyday! I have done lots of research on dog and cat behavior and am always looking out for the animals best interests. I always like to follow the pets schedule so things stay normal for them as much as possible.

I can walk dogs or take care of the dogs at your house in morning or afternoons and night if needed I would care for your dog by giving them lots of attention, love, playing with them, and walking with them. I have a very friendly black lab who loves all dogs and will be willing to play with your dog if needed.

About: I've taken care of cats for extended periods and helped dogsit many times with my roommate back in Denver. We would split dogsitting duties and it was so much fun. I'm a grad student, so I'm in and out of my apartment every day. I'm flexible with my schedule and can always build in time to take care of animals. Every night, I'm home and ready to pet-sit. We have cozy furniture and an unfenced place out back to run around, plenty of space to crate, and close to the bike path for walks.
