Teresa was amazing! I can’t say enough good things about her and how she treated our baby. Our pup needs subcutaneous fluids everyday, so we hired her to do that while we were out of town. She handled her with such care and love, it made my partner and I happy/ease knowing she was so well taken care of! We will definitely be booking with her again! Thank you again Teresa!!!!

Tara is an amazing pet sitter! She cared for my daughter's and my cats, six altogether, for several days. This was the first time all 6 were left alone so we were a bit apprehensive. She came at the same time everyday and sent photos and short reports on their eating, play etc. We could tell that she cared about them and was carefully monitoring their eating etc. She brought in the mail and offered to bring the trash bins out to the curb on her last visit. Because of all this care my daughter and I had a more relaxing trip knowing that our fur family was in great hands! Many thumbs ? for Tara!

About: As a passionate animal lover, I've had many pets growing up. Most of them were cats, but 13 years ago I met my dog, Tasja. She has been reactive, more so in her younger years. Training, exercise, mental stimulation, and consistency were important to help sooth her reactivity. It wasn't always easy, but I've learned a lot! I’m a fairly calm person around animals, especially when first meeting them. I have a decent understanding of their body language, and a lot of that is due to not only working with my dog, but also from working at a vet clinic. Working at a vet clinic in the kennels was one of the most rewarding jobs I have had to date and taught me a lot about how to handle and care for different temperaments/ages. I’m available most week days from 11am-3:30pm. I try to keep my calendar on Rover as updated as I can. I’m unavailable on weekends and some major holidays. Safety and trust are two of my biggest priorities while caring for your animals. On walks, I remain observant of my surroundings, the body language of your pup, and use positive reinforcement. I keep my demeanor calm, especially around reactive/nervous dogs. I‘ll also have water, treats, and doggy bags with me. In your home, I respect your space. I re-fill water bowls and am adamant about making sure the door is locked behind me when I leave.

Britnie was absolutely fantastic!! Not only was she punctual and reliable, she was also adaptable to changes in my wonky schedule. My pup always had a massive smile on his face when she came by… I’m soo glad we were able to find her!

Kandi is professional, communicative, and responsible, and my cat adores her! I can relax when I’m out of town, knowing that everything will be taken care of, and when I come home my cat seems so chill and relaxed, like she never noticed I left!

Lauren truly loves taking care of dogs. You can tell she genuinely enjoys their company and will show them a great time while ensuring their well-being. Sometimes I think my corgi Gracie likes her even more than me! If you're looking for someone dependable, fun, and compassionate to care for your furry friends, Lauren is the perfect choice.

Hailey provided daily drop in visits for my cat Snap while I was out of town and did a wonderful job. She was very responsive and provided daily pictures and updates on how Snap was doing. Snap is a very social cat and Hailey spent time bonding and playing with her. It was great to come home to find Snap happy and relaxed and not stressed from my long absence. I highly recommend Hailey and will use her services in the future.
