“Carolyn is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We were nervous to leave our 4 month old puppy, but she made us feel comfortable after our first meeting. She even provided guidance on some puppy training tips. She sent us a very detailed update after the visit and had great pictures too. We will definitely reach out to her again!”
“Bailey took great care of my 3 dogs, one being blind. She is very responsible. She gave them tons of attention and fed/walked them as instructed. I would leave my dogs in Bailey’s care anytime”
“Adriana was very nice and accommodating to our schedule! She took very good care of our 4 cats and bunny while we were away. We felt so much more comfortable leaving knowing they would be getting love and attention. Thank you, Adriana!!”
“Dani is a very kind person. She is kind and very gentle with animals. She will take great care of any animal no matter the size. She is a pet owner herself, 2 dogs and a cat who she loves with all her heart. Her and any animal in her care will be loved and taken real good care for.”
“I’ve known Melanie both as a pet sitter and a pet owner. The amount of care she puts into her dogs and any animal she meets has helped me become a better owner. She’s always learning new ways to help keep her dogs clean and healthy was well as ways to keep them calm when they have anxiety. Not only does she look out for her pets but for others as well. Be it a stray or a neighbor’s outdoor cat, she treats them with a kindness and respect that I admire.”

About: Hi! I've owned dogs for years and have experience with breeds as small as 5 lbs up to 90 lbs. Does your dog have special quirks? No problem, he/she will be catered to (and spoiled!) with attention and walks all day long. I work from home and live in a quiet and dog-friendly neighborhood. I look forward to exploring all the sniffs with 2-3 walks daily and tons of at-home playtime. I have a home with a fenced in yard as well as lots of inside play space making for a safe and stress-free environment for your pups.
“Jen did such a great job with my kitties during my verrrry long, 2wk absence! ? One of my cats gets toilet issues when she's stressed, and Jen didn't miss a beat with the additional cleanup ?❤️ She even got my semi feral cat to warm up to her and come out for loves Totally recommend for your fur babies!”

About: I’ve taken care of animals my whole life. They mean everything and more to me! I am always looking for ways to keep my fur babies entertained and make sure they feel loved. You can count on me to provide for your pets every need! I am currently in my first year of college at LBCC and my schedule is very flexible! I will have plenty of time to give your pets the love and care they deserve. I treat all animals as if they were my own. I love to play with them, give them treats, plenty of belly rubs, and keep them mentally stimulated!
About: I was blessed with 12 years of companionship, adventure, and love with my Beagle named Copper. I watched his sense of wonder of the world as a puppy. Trained him to stop chewing through my furniture and wristwatch during his teething phase. Coached him off his pee-pee pads to graduate potty training. We loved to walk beaches and go on hikes. When Copper was diagnosed with a luxating patella, aka "floating knee cap," he had a pin surgically implanted. Despite his unstoppable spirit, I had to slow his walks and prevent his jumps. He also took care of me. I work from home. He reminded me to take many breaks and led me on 30 to 60-minute walks. If I had a tough day, he would smile (or look at me with a derpy face) and let me know everything would be okay. Copper suffered a sudden onset of vestibular disease, aka "old dog syndrome." I'm sharing it here for awareness because the symptoms are unsettling. He lost his sense of balance and stumbled around drunk-like with an extreme head tilt. Some dogs can recover and show signs of improvement after 72 hours, while others can take several months. We made him as comfortable as possible, surrounding him with cushy beds. I administered anti-nausea and motion sickness medication on schedule per the vet's instructions. I carried him outside and supported him with a harness so he could relieve himself. Despite our efforts, he looked at me and squeezed out one last smile to let me know everything would be okay, but he was ready to go. I know how your dog is special to you. I would happily check in on your dog at your home or take them out on walks. I work from home. I would happily check in on your pup and take them on a walk. I am typically flexible in the mornings and afternoons, Monday through Friday. I live near the Bixby Knolls neighborhood of Long Beach. I'm trying to limit my travel to approximately 15 to 20 minutes. We can start with introductions at a dog park, another public location, or wherever you feel comfortable. We can let your dog get to know me and decide whether or not they choose me. If we're a good fit, we can discuss the logistics and details for feeding, walking, and other care.
“I highly recommend Rita as a dog walker! They are incredibly reliable and always show up on time. They have a great rapport with dogs and really understand their needs. You can tell that they genuinely care about the dogs they walk and go above and beyond to make sure they are happy and comfortable. Rita is also very communicative and always keeps me informed about my dog's walks. I feel confident and at ease knowing that my dog is in such good hands. Overall, I couldn't be happier with Rita's services as a dog walker!”
“Carol stopped by for a drop-in visit to check-in and spend some time with our pups while we were out of the house for the day. She communicated with us very well, was reliable and our dogs were happy! She also made sure to send us updates and pictures of the dogs. We appreciate the care she provided for us and would be happy to book her again in the future.”

“Ethan is a wonderful pet sitter! He is always willing to help us out when we’ve needed him last minute and our dogs love him. I cannot recommend him enough”
“Cassandra has been so amazing with our puppy. She is reliable and our puppy looks forward to seeing her which says a lot because animals know good people. Our puppy is happier at home than at a doggy hotel. Cassandra follows our walking and feeding schedule she even spends a little extra time playing or cleaning up messes or accidents our puppy has before Cassandra’s visits. I often get pictures of my puppy during her visits which I have become so fond of.”
“10/10 Pet sitter! Committed to watching your pet and takes the time to entertain them as well as feeding and walking. I could tell when a person is a huge animal lover and cares for their well-being . Highly recommend!”
About: I’m very passionate about caring for pets! I have a 3 year old shiba inu. My life revolves around him. Rest assured that your dog will be loved and cared for just like how I care for my Zuko. I work from home which allows me to give full attention to your dog. I’m available for morning & evening walks. If your dog loves the dog park, great! We have one nearby. If not, that’s fine too. We live in a gated community so you won’t have to worry about your pup getting loose. Our home is vacuumed, mopped and sanitized almost daily. Please consider bathing your dog before boarding. I do allow dogs on furniture :)
“Nita has been my go to pet sitter! Always responsive and reliable and my dogs LOVE her. She always has a fun picture or story about the time with my dogs that she shares with me which always makes me smile ( and my dogs are happy to see her!) I so appreciate her loving care of them when I cannot be there. Thank you, Nita”
“Kellie has been coming to hang out with my 5lb Yorkie, Killah, for the last 6 weeks or so. He is very scared/uncomfortable/aggressive with strangers so I told Kellie that she had quite the challenge ahead of her. After 6 weeks, she and Killah are now (slowly) becoming friends and I can see in the pictures she sends that he is comfortable with her presence. Above all else, she has been extremely patient and has not given up on him. Can't wait to see the progress over the coming months!”
