“I am so happy that Amy watched Roxy while we were away for a wedding. We could see that Roxy was in good hands and comfortable staying in her home. We received photos and updates every day and could see that Roxy was doing her thing. Amy also brought in our mail and newspapers. The house was in as good a condition as when we left. I would use Amy again in a heartbeat.”
“Areana watched our two dogs and cat over an extended holiday weekend. We were extremely impressed with her professionalism from first contact through final departure. She made sure to understand each pets’ needs and even made sure our elder dog was properly cared for. The consistent updates were thorough and had a ton of great pictures. Also, she cared for our house like it was her own, leaving it cleaner than when she arrived! We will always reach out again to Areana for our future sitting needs. 6/5.”

“Aimee has been pet sitting out two cats for many years. She is responsible, caring and enjoys their cuddles. She follows all of the directions we leave, and she cleans up after the cats and always leave our home clean and well organized. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a house and pet sitter.”
“Ann was absolutely incredible with our sweet Ru, from her time and patience getting to know her in the run up, to her care and attentiveness to her body language and triggers, to her her regular and thoughtful updates. We knew Ruby was in great hands and really could focus on our trip out of town. We know Ruby can't wait to see you again next time!”
“Zana was great! We booked her for overnight pet sitting for our 2 dogs. She made sure they were never alone for long, spent lots of time playing with our very energetic pup and sent lots of cute photos during her stay. Our pups loved her and when we got home they acted like we'd never been gone. We have already rebooked Zana for a future trip.”
“Mecca is kind and gentle and has a special connection with dogs. She is a wonderful person who cares about the well being of the pets she cares for. Mecca also follows instructions on how to care for pets to make sure they are healthy. Her main concern is always for the care of the pets.”
“Michael house sitted for our dog who suffers from severe stomach issues, and he took care of him wonderfully! My partner and I are so extremely grateful for Michael. He went above and beyond to take care of our dog, was very communicative throughout the week and he sent us beautiful pictures of our boy every day! He also left our house in better conditions that we left it in! I highly recommend Michael for dogsitting, especially if you need someone who is knowledgeable of taking care of sick dogs. So grateful and we will definitely be contacting Michael again in the future!”
About: My parents always got puppies or a kitty growing up so I have experience with raising from the ground up. I know what signs to look for and ways they try to communicate. I love showing nothing but patience and respect for these animals! I'm currently not working as my new job doesn't start until Septemeber 18th. I have the next 3.5 weeks of these full time oppotunites so I'm really flexible. I have one cat and she just turned 2 this August! She's a tabby mix and she's an indoor cat. I clip her nails and make sure her mouth stays clean. She gets brushed all the time and we keep her needed items such as scratching post with toys, water fountain cleaned/filter replaced, food is automatically set up, and her litter box is cleaned/changed out once a week using pellets. I love taking her outside on our balcony for fresh air. She loves getting pet all over her body when she stretches out.
“Kevin was FANTASTIC. My wife has never trusted anyone to take care of our Frenchie before but I convinced her to give Rover a try and Kevin hit a grand slam. He was conscientious, great about giving her pills and always sending us updates. I highly recommend.”
About: Hello, my name is Emily. I am the proud owner of three cats and a small dog. I have lived with pets of a variety all my life and have been providing animal care professionally for about 30 years now. Animal sitting to me is much more than just feeding and cleaning up after them. Our animals have feelings and needs just like you and I and every animal is different. Anyone can provide feeding/cleaning service, but I will give your pet the attention and love they need to make your absence just a little more bearable for them. I customize my visits based on each individual animals needs to provide the most enriching experience. Because I am a pet owner, my day starts with a routine of walking my dog and feeding all of my animals. And I have a scheduled routine of walks every 4 hours and feeding twice a day along with play time for the cats. It is not difficult to add additional care into that on the hours in-between. I treat every pet like my own and understand that they all have individual needs that I am dedicated to providing. Once you know what those needs are, you can build routines around them to ensure every pet gets the love and attention it needs.
“Tavon was great! He made sure Lily was well taken care of during our trip. I would definitely rebook him. I almost think our house looked cleaner than we left it!”
About: Basic vet tech experience & some training at Falls Road Animal Hospital. I have raised several cats and dogs starting since before I was 10 and I am 31 now. I have a golden retriever mix and 2 short hair domestic cats. 1 more belonging to my mother lives here. They all get along great. Very welcoming home. I love animals and I'll treat any animal like it's my own. I'm very thorough with other pet parents instructions. This is currently my only form of employment so I am flexible. I just need advanced notice. Unfortunately I can't do same day bookings. I will be getting a part-time job soon and volunteering once a month at BARCS soon hopefully. But my time with your pet is dedicated to them. It depends on the service requested and the instructions provided. I will water and feed them, play with them, keep them safe, make sure they can void their bladders and bowels, and give them medicine if required. I will communicate any unusual behaviors or the need to do an emergency vet visit with the owner. I was CPR First Aid certified several times for humans. I self-taught for cats and dogs. And I live with a former nurse, (my mom). I take caring for other creatures seriously. I love to do it!
“Cailey did a great job taking care of our dogs for the night. They were happy and the house was clean when we got home!”
“Lindsay was quick to respond to my initial request to watch kona. She checked in on him, fed him, and played with him while we were gone. Kona enjoyed his time with her.”
“Peggy was great. She arrived at the time she said she would and kept me updated throughout the entire day both with photos and message updates. When I arrived home my dog seemed very well taken care of and content”
“Dylan does an amazing job watching over my two dogs whenever I am traveling. Also, he walks them everyday for over an hour! My dogs love Dylan and he is so good as well as kind to them. He has even taught them some tricks which helped me out a ton! Dylan is always willing to work out a schedule that works you’re needs and he is highly reliable.”
“Allison is a caring and attentive dog walker and I feel safe leaving my pets in their care while I'm at work or out and about!”
“Alyssa started taking care of animals at a very young age. They began with raising praying mantises, then ferrets and during high school worked at the zoo as part of their duties. There they cared for a variety of animals, preparing their food and medication and ensuring they received the proper enrichment. Now at home the same care and attention to detail is being used to help care for our Bichon/ Shih tzu, Cleopatra. Alyssa takes her on regular walks, feeds and combs/brushes her to keep the knots away. Alyssa is very reliable and trustworthy and Cleo reminds us of it daily.”
“Michelle was awesome! She was very on top of keeping me updated with how my pup was doing! It was very clear how happy my pup was with her which made my trip a lot smoother :)”
