Kade was awesome taking care of my cat Theo over a long weekend while I was out of town. They kept me up to date with lots of photos and I know Theo was happier to stay in his own house. Would def recommend and book Kade again!

Samantha is an exceptional dog walker who excels with all types of dogs. Her natural rapport and genuine love for animals make her the perfect choice for any pet parent. I've personally witnessed her skill and dedication when she walked my dogs—they came back happy and well-exercised every time. Samantha's ability to connect with dogs of all temperaments, coupled with her reliability and passion, make her an invaluable asset for any pet owner. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone seeking a trustworthy and caring dog walker.

Michael is extremely conscientious regarding the care for his own pets as well as other pets whose owners have entrusted him in their care. He has a calm spirit and animals are comfortable around him. Seeing him love and care for his own two cats gives me complete confidence in his ability to properly care for other owner's pets. I have used him as a dog sitter many times and seeing the bond he has made with my pup makes me feel so comfortable putting my trust in him. Highly recommend!

Emily has been our pet sitter for several years. She has provided loving, attentive care for both our aged beagle and our sibling cats. During the last years of her life, our beloved beagle needed somebody near fairly consistently and we always felt comfortable having Emily come live-in to care of her so that we could take a bit of vacation time or travel for work. Our beagle needed medications and detailed food preparation, several walks each day, and lots of love and cuddles, otherwise. Emily was fabulous with her and she was always excited to see Emily arrive! Since she has now left us to go play with all the other dogs in Dog Star heavens, Emily continues to provide loving care for our cats when we are away. While one would think they were less needy....that would be in error! Our tuxedoed boy needs many hours of lap-sitting and endless petting. His sister requires an admirer from afar who is comfortable cleaning her box, leaving her favorite foods on her dish, just-so, and refilling her water bowl with a careful eye. Emily is both loved by them and loves them back. I would recommend Emily to care for anyone's beloved furry family members. She is thoughtful, diligent, caring, patient, wise, prompt, and responsible. She routinely sends me pictures of my furries when I am gone, just so I can see how content they are with her being there. Emily is superb pet sitter and I feel lucky that she has been so wonderful with my crew.

AJ is a good friend of me and my boyfriend, and we have enlisted them as our pet-sitter several times when we've gone out of town and needed someone to care for the pets. They're reliable and the pets love them - we've gotten very cute selfies and videos of AJ with our happy cats while we were away and it meant so much to us. :) Can't recommend them enough!!

Aubrey was very professional and clearly loves animals. She took great care of our cat, and I really appreciated her thorough updates on him! He really warmed up to her and he’s usually quite shy. She even left a new toy for him I know he will love! It felt great knowing he was in such great hands. Thank you!

Olivia might be my dogs best friend, not going to lie. Her calming energy and kind temperament makes any pet feel right at home. She is enthusiastic but resigned when needed around high energy pets. Olivia has cared for my dog on multiple occasions and is very trustworthy, responsible and always has extra love to share.

Alyssa did an amazing job watching my kitties! I had multiple terrible experiences with Rover in a different state so I was skeptical at first but not anymore. I received lots of pics and a report card about them everyday which gave me peace of mind while I was away. Highly recommend!

About: The better part of my life has been spent around animals, from horses to hedgehogs. I have 11 years of big-dog experience raising my sweet pittie from puppyhood and I recently became a proud cat dad. My pet care style is focused on observing your animal’s needs + feelings and maintaining control of the situation so everyone stays safe. My work hours vary, and I have some holiday time off in the next few weeks, so feel free to reach out with any booking requests and we’ll see if we can make it work! I offer drop-in pet care services in a client’s home. This is flexible and can include feeding, walking, playing, etc. I always appreciate as much detail in care instructions as you’re able to give.

I love Shelly. She is very compassionate and dependable. I have four cats with very shy personalities, so they can be quite difficult even for myself. I'm so grateful I found her. Shelly is a dog and cat owner herself. Animals just naturally gravitate to her.

Allison has cared for my dog on multiple occasions, I knew that when she was in her supervision she was going to be well cared for and loved like she were her own. She sent me frequent updates and was always prompt with responses. She took her on frequent walks, gave her lots of cuddles and pets, and paid special attention to her needs. I will certainly be looking to have her watch my dog again in the future!

Daniel was great! He went above and beyond to take care of Lainey while I was gone. Taking care of her, cleaning up after her, and making sure she felt safe and cared for while staying home alone for the week. He was even nice enough to drop off some cookies for me and my girlfriend on his last visit. An extremely nice gesture, having known we both contracted Covid during our trip (it’s the little things 🙂). I will definitely request service from him again if he’s available in the future and strongly recommended others do the same. 10/10 dog sitting!
