“She was awesome with my big girl! Baylee came back exhausted! She was timely very friendly and professional! Definitely having her return to walk my furr baby! Thank you !!”
“Elisheba has been walking our 2 girls for 2 weeks now, twice a week. I’ve definitely have noticed a difference with our youngest. She’s much more calm and less destructive when she’s home alone and we’re off at work. She’s about 1 year old and a recent rescue. The extra walking gets rids of some of her pent up energy. Would recommend Elisheba: she’s patient, kind and flexible.”
“Madelyn is eager to please. She is on time and very knowledgeable about caring for my pet. He comes back from his walk tired and happy.”
“Pat has watched our animals' numerous times, too many to count. She is reliable, and kind and good with the animals. She doesn't just run and dump. She allotted time with them, and talked with them and searched for the one who always hides when we leave. She is good with dogs and has become fond of cats. She owns one of each. Our animals liked her and she was welcomed in our home as a familiar friend. She has a soft spot for the strays and underdog, so that serves her well in looking after our animals. She would be a good sitter, and I highly recommend her.”
“1000/10 would recommend Stephanie to care for my pets on any given occasion! She looks after and treats them as if they are her own, and gives them all of her attention and love (which is quite a bit in my household considering I have 4 dogs 😅). She genuinely loves animals, and I know they’re always in good hands with her!”
“Kaitlyn watched my dog Sophie for me while I was at work.She was an older dog that had hip problems. Kaitlyn took real good care, she would walk her for me twice a day to make sure she got out of the apartment. I lived on the 3rd floor so she was very patient with my dog as it was difficult for her to go up and down the stairs. Sophie loved the outdoors and loved her long walks. I would trust any dog with her care. Her love for animals is amazing and her patients was a great attribute.”

“Jessica is one of the best pet parents there is! She has always been amazing with caring for animals at all stages of life. From training puppies to giving medication to senior pups, Jessica can do it all.”
“Marissa is the best! She is so sweet and caring and fun. My dogs just love her! She keeps me updated so I never have any concerns. She is also cautious of the heat which is great because two of my dogs over heat quickly. She is very kind and trustworthy and I would recommend her if you need help for any of your pets!”
“Ethan has cared for our 2 cocker spaniels for several years. He has always been kind and caring. Plays with them and when asked, has stayed over night to care for them. I highly recommend him to care for your pets. He will love them like they are his own.”
“Always on time to pick my dog up for his walks every week, and also very informative on the daily cards and always sends multiple pictures. ❤️”
“Peaches can be a handful, but she loves to have Tambre come care for her. I appreciate that Tambre loves and cares for Peaches despite her quirks (I blame it on the Shar Pei mixed in with the sweet Golden), and I can have piece of mind while traveling knowing that Peaches is content.”

Here's how pet care fits into my schedule: Daily Routine: Morning Care: I start my day by attending to your pets' immediate needs, which may include feeding, walking, or administering medications if necessary. I ensure they are comfortable and content before I begin my other tasks. Midday Check-Ins: For clients who require midday visits, I make sure to check in on your pets, provide them with some companionship, and attend to any specific requirements. This helps break up the day for your pets and ensures they are not left alone for extended periods. Evening Care: In the evening, I dedicate time to your pets' feeding, playtime, and any additional care they may need. This ensures they are relaxed and happy before bedtime. Overnight Stays (if requested): For clients who prefer overnight pet sitting, I stay with your pets throughout the night, providing constant company, monitoring, and any necessary care. This is especially beneficial for pets who may have separation anxiety or medical needs. Weekly Routine: Regular Exercise: I incorporate regular exercise into my weekly routine, ensuring dogs receive their recommended daily physical activity through walks, playtime, and outdoor adventures.

Grooming and Hygiene: I make sure that your pets' grooming and hygiene needs are met. This includes brushing, bathing, and maintaining their coat and overall cleanliness. Health Checkups: I conduct weekly health checkups to monitor your pets' well-being, noting any changes in behavior, appetite, or health that may require attention. Communication with Clients: Throughout the week, I maintain open lines of communication with you, providing updates on your pets' activities, health, and any noteworthy incidents.

Your pets' well-being is my top priority, and I am committed to maintaining their routines and meeting their unique needs with the utmost care and attention. Whether caring for pets in my home or a client's home, safety, trust, and creating a secure environment are paramount in my approach to pet care. Here's how I ensure the well-being of pets in both settings: Caring for Pets in My Home: Pet-Proofed Environment: My home is meticulously pet-proofed to eliminate potential hazards. Toxic substances, small objects, and other dangers are safely out of reach. Electrical cords are secured, and windows and doors are checked for escape routes. Secure Outdoor Space: If I have a yard or outdoor area, it's securely fenced to prevent pets from wandering off. I also ensure there are no holes or gaps that pets could use to escape. Supervised Playtime: Pets in my care are never left unsupervised, especially if they are interacting with other animals. I closely monitor their playtime to ensure it's safe and enjoyable for all. Clean and Sanitary Conditions: I maintain a clean and hygienic environment. Food and water dishes are washed regularly, litter boxes are cleaned promptly, and sleeping areas are kept comfortable and clean. Separate Spaces for Different Pets: If I'm caring for multiple pets from different families, I provide separate spaces to prevent conflicts and ensure each pet's safety and comfort. Emergency Preparedness: I am prepared for emergencies with a well-stocked pet first-aid kit and knowledge of basic first aid procedures. I have a plan in place for immediate veterinary care if needed. Caring for Pets in the Client's Home: Security Measures: I respect your home's security and privacy. I ensure that doors and windows are securely locked when entering and leaving your property. I also maintain discretion regarding your absence. Consistency: I prioritize maintaining your pet's familiar routines, including feeding times, walking routes, and playtime. This helps reduce stress for your pet in your absence. Communication: I keep an open line of communication with you while you're away, providing daily updates and photos to reassure you that your pet is safe and well-cared for. Respect for Your Property: I treat your home with respect, cleaning up after myself and ensuring that your property is in the same condition as when you left. Emergency Protocols: I am well-prepared for emergencies and have access to your pet's medical information, including any necessary medications and contact information for your veterinarian. Trust and Privacy: I understand the importance of trust and maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and the details of our pet care arrangement. In both scenarios, my top priority is the safety and well-being of your pets, combined with maintaining trust and respecting your property and privacy. Whether caring for pets in my home or yours, I create a secure and loving environment where your furry family members can thrive.
“Here's the thing...Mandy is awesome! She wanted to do a Meet and Greet with our pup, before setting up a walking appointment. Our Border Collie is a shy girl when it comes to strangers. Mandy came in and sat on the floor, being patient and letting our dog come to her. After maybe 2 minutes our pup was best friends with her lol. Our pup kept getting Mandy to play tug, and throw her toy. It was so funny and cute. She didn't want to just take our money. She wanted to make sure she was a good fit for our dog, before committing to a walk. That's pretty cool. After taking our pup on a walk she always makes sure there's water in the bowl before she leaves. Mandy is very organized and professional! I would 100% recommend her.”
“Valerie is definitely a pet lover, as well as a great pet sitter and pet walker. I trust her completely with my dog(s)! She has that “gift” where ALL dogs are drawn to her. It’s as if they trust her instantaneously because they feel that her vibe is genuine. I highly recommend Valerie as a pet sitter and/or pet walker. She is definitely a trustworthy person whether she comes into your home to pet sit or walks your dog(s). Lyne”
“Maya was 6 months old when Bethany came into our lives. From Day 1, Maya was always excited to see her. Because I worked so much, someone needed to care for Maya was I was away. Bethany was entrusted with this responsibility. She was attentive to Maya’s needs, taking her out and walking her, as well as playing with all the toys. Bethany believes in positive reinforcement and used this to help me teach Maya with basic training and a few tricks! Maya and I love Bethany. You will too. ”
“I highly recommend Leila to anyone seeking exceptional pet care on Rover. She is super reliable, caring and her love for pets makes her an outstanding choice. She is amazing with dogs and a wonderful caregiver!”
About: Hi, my name is Natallia! I am a campaign organizer and independent business owner who loves to spend time with all of our furry, scaly, and fishy friends! I I am just as comfortable with small animals and reptiles as with dogs and cats. After having professional experience working with animals in a boarding facility I also pride myself in giving every animal the attention they deserve and keeping up the schedules they already have in place. I can happily accommodate any special needs your pet has, whether they are taking medications, have dietary requirements, or are keeping up a training regimen.
