“Meticulous and detail oriented, Abigail made sure she was familiar with all of the relevant details to successfully house sit our pet.”

About: I have over a decade of experience in caring for pets of all kinds (doggos, furry felines, fishies, quirky hamsters & more!). In more than one instance, I've been told that the family cat who "never warms up to anyone" clearly feels safe enough around me as they're rubbing up against my leg for pets. I have a compassionate and distinctive personality, and I think your four-legged friend will report back saying exactly the same! I have a fair amount of flexibility as someone who 1. Works remotely and 2. Works on Pacific Coast hours (12:00pm - 8:00pm Eastern Time) so I have the leeway of location! I can spend as much time with your fur baby as you'd (or they!) would like. I am super detail-oriented and thorough, so I will provide your fur baby with only the best care. Additionally, I possess a strong love for calendaring, so you can rely on my services and trust that I will follow through with any tasks related to your pet.
“Biota is absolutely wonderful. We were away for a week and she stayed at our house and took care of our two dogs, rabbit, gecko and fish. One of the dogs had an upset stomach and she cleaned his accident and made him homemade chicken and rice to help his issue. She sent text updates and pictures. She even took care of all of our plants. We were able to relax while being far from home. We came home to a spotless house and very happy animals.”
“Jonas was great! Unfortunately my pup decided to have a little diarrhea while we were away. Jonas went above and beyond to care for our pup, lost a full nights sleep, and made sure we were up to date with everything happening. I can’t thank him enough for taking such good care. I highly recommend Jonas and if you work with him your pet will be in excellent caring hands.”
“Amazing sitter! Goes above and beyond taking care of our babies. Would recommend to anyone needing someone to care for their pups. Hopefully she’s available for our next trip.”
“Katie is amazing! Smart, capable, positive, responsive and very pet friendly. Our dogs were very well cared for and our home so clean and neat when we returned. Cannot thank her enough. 10 stars!”
“Palma was a wonderful sitter for our Scottie, Pepper! Pepper immediately befriended Palma when she came to meet us, and we could tell Palma was enjoying playing with Pepper. We felt very comfortable leaving Pepper in her hands. While we were away, Palma was very communicative and sent photos of Pepper for us (which I love because I always miss her). She left our house in pristine condition! I highly recommend Palma.”
“Bri is very reliable and respectful. She was amazing with my two girls and would highly recommend her.”
“Joanna watched our dogs twice in one month at our home and could not be happier!! Absolutely appreciate her daughter helping with the daily snuggles. Always felt at ease with her in our home and know our dogs are well cared for too. Thank you and hope to have you dog/house again soon!”
“Sam is a wonderful pet sitter/walker who takes excellent care of our furbabies. I never hesitate to ask her to walk or watch our dogs. Sam is flexible with my crazy work schedule, extremely knowledgeable of our dogs needs, personable, easy to talk to, professional and reliable. We love her!”
About: My love for dogs started when my moms friend asked me to help take her dog on walks when i was 12. Shortly after I started dog watching for my backyard neighbor when I was 15. I helped train his 2 German Shepards since he was at work mostly. One of them was under a year and still needed training and the other one was adopted from abusive owners and very timid. I started horse back riding at a young age and fell in love with horses although never pursued my dream of being a professional horse trainer. I worked on a cow farm when i was 16 and began to milk cows and care for baby animals on the farm. Since I was young I've taken in all kinds of injured animals from birds to raccoons to snakes. I've helped find lost dogs over the years for close friends and family. I have also found my own cat several times over the years. I have successfully found every animal that was missing to date. Recently I've been helping to catch feral cats in my neighborhood and find good homes for them. I'm currently working part time so my schedule is somewhat open at the moment besides dropping off and picking up my son from school which is 8 am and 4 pm. I'm free more so during the day and weekends. I do not require much notice and I'm not strict if you need to cancel. Just please lmk as soon as you possibly can if you do need to cancel. Whenever I care for any animal in their own home I take their safety very seriously and do the same exact thing I would do in my own home or for my own animal. I will certainly do whatever it takes to keep any pets safe and respect the wishes of the owner and their desire to train, and care for their animal and home.
“Joshua was great. He didn't have an easy task taking care of three big dogs, but they got along perfectly. Joshua sent pictures and videos and the dogs were nice and tired when we got home. And the house was in great shape. We've already booked him again!”
“Recommend Triba to watch your pets. She made sure my dog was well cared after and taken on a walk. No issues at all. Will use her again”
“Jamie stayed overnight with our dog Timber this passed weekend and I couldn’t be happier. She was quick to respond, followed our special requests and super cheerful. Timber gravitated to her right away and her updates/photos/videos were super appreciated. I’m nervous leaving him but she made me very comfortable. I would definitely recommend and will be asking her to watch Timber again in the future!”
“Sherry was wonderful. She was very responsible and took the best care of Dolly and Wrigley. She was very good to Wrigley when it started to rain. He gets scared and she sat with him calming him down. Definitely hoping our schedules line up for my next trip.”
About: Before having two dogs of my own, I took care of family members pets for years. Bathing, bathroom breaks, feedings are all second nature to me. I currently work three days a week at a hospital so am able to pet sit on my days off. I am an early riser so am well suited for early morning bathroom breaks and walks. I love all animals from birds and bunnies to dogs and cats. I live in a house with a lot of space for animals. There are several parks around. My dogs are leash trained and live to watch tv.
About: Hello Everyone! My name is Sky and I am 22, and a fresh graduate of college. I have been watching and taking care of pets since I was little. Those animals include a variety of livestock, dogs and cats. I have dog sat a variety of breeds as well as grew up with Great Danes, akitas, and teacup Maltese. I have also house sit for a few people that have cats. Last but not least, I have been horseback riding for 18 years. Within these years I have worked at different barns caring for other animals such as goats, sheep, donkeys/mules, and poultry. I know how to muck stalls and various barn chores (count flakes, measure grain, feed oral supplements such as gastrogaurd, etc). I currently work part time and am working on opening my own business. I am typically available mon-fri before 11:30-12 pm. If needed I can do some weekends! For nights I can do around 8 pm until later. I currently plan on moving into an RV and out of my family's house, therefore I can not board pets at my house. However, I am totally fine with overnight stays as long as we can meet in a public place beforehand and once again at the location of the sitting.
