“Shannon did a great job and gave us a full, satisfying report. It’s good to have someone closeby whom we can trust to check in on our dog when we’re out.”
Cynthia & Mark H.
“Absolutely great! Extremely communicative and understanding. I can tell my boys were very well taken care of and without a doubt I would ask her to watch my senior boys. I absolutely loved her write up of how the walks went. I can't say enough good things about Cynthia.”
“Anna was a fantastic sitter for my elderly cat! She was able to take the job at the last minute on a holiday weekend and was super responsive and flexible. She asked lots of questions to make sure she was giving the best care possible and sent detailed updates during visits. Highly recommend her!”
“Elizabeth has a big, deep heart for animals! She has a long history for watching and caring for our four-legged kids (2 cats and 3 dogs). She's very gentle and puts her knowledge of behavior-training to great use. My 3 dogs are all Labs that have pushed the 100 lb. mark and can be bulldozers if not kept in line. She's got the strength and stamina to handle the big boys, plus the care and compassion for the little ones too! I believe she is a great, loving, pet-sitter/caregiver!”
About: I’ve been taking care of dogs and cats of every size, age, and temperament since I was a kid. I’ve been involved in the training of many puppies, and am capable of maintaining current routines & training for your pets! I’m very active, so I will have no problem meeting your dog’s activity needs, whether that be a long walk, lots of playtime, or a run at the park. I also give the best scritches! I currently work part-time in the mornings, so I’m available for late morning, afternoons, and evenings. I’m available for overnight care on the weekends, but with enough notice and prior discussion I can be available weekdays as well. I am committed to following the routines & rules you’ve set up for your pet. I am well educated in foods & plants that can be dangerous for pets, and I would never take yours somewhere I felt uncomfortable or wouldn’t take my own!
“Justine did a fabulous job of watching my dog. She was responsive and followed all instructions.”
“We were blown away by Megan's professionalism. She is far and away the best pet sitter we have ever had. Megan met with us in advance to go over care instructions and expectations, and was punctual and communicative throughout our entire vacation and before and after it. She treated our cat like one of her own. Our cat suffers from separation anxiety, and we were delighted to see him purring and snuggling with her each day. She spends quality, focused time with your pets and leaves excellent notes, photos, and videos. When we got back, our cat was healthy and WAY less stressed than he's been before when we were on vacation. Five stars to Megan, no question!”
“Madeleine did a great job watching my cat Olive for the weekend! Would definitely recommend :)”
“Jess did great! Communication was very clear, easy, and open. She was attentive and patient with my dog and kept me informed. She’s awesome!”
“Megan was great!! She always sent pictures and it was so comforting to know my kitties were being loved while I was away:)”

“I have known Billy for years and he's home sitting my two cats for years. He's taken great care of them. He's very patient to my older timid kitty, and adapts quickly to my playful kitty. He also helps my family take care of their dogs over time. He loves taking care of their fur babies! He's not shy about sharing his love with them even when the cat scratched him accidentally! He's definitely your guy if you are away from home and need someone trustworthy to take care of your fur babies!”
About: I've always had dogs in my family (so I am very experienced with dogs) and I miss having them so much being a student! I also currently volunteer with the cats at the Humane Society so I am fully equipped to care for cats as well! On Monday I have one class from 12-1 but outside of that am completely free, and on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I am completely free to give my full attention to caring for your pet! I am very flexible in terms of how I care for pets! I will regularly take your pet outside for bathroom breaks, walks, or play time. Your pet will receive my full attention, so I am prepared to operate based on their needs and desires! I am 100% willing to let your pet sleep or hang out on furniture if that is what they are used to in your home, but I also understand that upholding training can be important, so I am also willing to let pets sleep in crates/carriers if that is what you prefer. Just let me know your preferences and I will fulfill them!
“Natalie cared for my retired racing greyhound, whom I recently rescued, while I was on vacation. She allowed me to enjoy my time away, completely worry free, and followed all my greyhound-specific care and feeding instructions. My usual sitter was out of town, so I needed someone reliable on a short notice - Natalie came to the rescue and exceeded all my expectations. My dog was very calm and relaxed when I got home, so I know he was in good hands. I would love to work with Natalie again!”
“Tonisha was absolutely fantastic!! She went above and beyond to take care of our boys and kept us updated every step of the way. I have never felt more at ease about leaving them at home for a few days. 13/10 would recommend :)”
“Would highly recommend Andrew to anyone who is looking for a pet sitter. He took care of our cat over the weekend. He is reliable, sent pictures, and kept us updated.”
“Amanda has watched my dogs multiple times and has always given them the best love and care! You can tell she really enjoys being around animals, and you can trust that they will have a great time with her.”
“Heather is an amazing dog walker, dog sitter, and cat sitter. I have two elderly dogs that both require medication and a cat with numerous food allergies. Heather walked my dogs for years and my pups have always been safe, happy, with no accidents when I’m gone. We asked Heather to pet sit about 3 years ago and she was communicative and thorough updating us while we were gone. We had total peace of mind that our home and our pets were taken care of. Upon returning, my house was in perfect shape and my pets happy and taken care of. Heather is a wonderful walker and caretaker!”
“Taylor did an excellent job caring for my 5 dogs while I was on vacation. They instantly loved her. She has a fun and outgoing personality and they saw it right away. She walked all of them successfully together. Taylor is detail oriented and can follow through on all their needs. Highly recommend!”
“My husband and I had Emily watch our 3 cats on several occasions while out on vacation over the years, and we could not be happier with her help! Not only did she successfully feed them, swap out their water, and give our 1 cat his medicine (which is a challenge because he is grumpy), but she also stuck around for a bit to play with them and give them some attention & love! She would send us pictures and videos of the cats whenever she was there, which was always reassuring as well. Overall cannot recommend Emily highly enough! She is great!”
