About: Hi I'm Andi! I am a PhD student at the University of Montana. I currently offer dog walking and drop-in services. I have had dogs my entire life and have years of experience dog sitting and volunteering at rescue facilities. I have a lot of experience walking and caring for dogs of all sizes. I also have experience with rescue pups, pets with separation anxiety, and administering medications to dogs of all ages including two of my own rescue dogs! I am available for morning and evening dog walks and drop-in visits during weekdays when I am not in classes. I am not currently providing weekend services but I am open to discussing this for repeat dog friends. I will treat your dog as if they are my own. I will provide a loving, caring and fun experience where their safety and wellbeing are my top priority.
About: Thank you for taking a moment to check out my profile. My name is Erika, and I've been taking care of dogs for 6 years now. You can find me and my sidekick (read: best friend) Zephyr on trails around Missoula daily. Zephyr is a 7 y/o Aussie/Border collie mix who does well with other dogs, and loooves to run. We would love to welcome your pups into our pack for boarding, house-sitting, or adventuring in Missoula! I'm a full-time graduate student at the U and live 0.5 miles from campus. I typically get Zeph and friends on a walk before school around the neighborhood, then come home for lunch and head back to campus for the afternoon until 5-6pm. I trail run in the evenings 4-5x/week and always take pups along! Weekends are dedicated to study time and time spent outside. I have a fenced yard with 2 enclosed sections, both featuring grass and shade. My house has 2 stories with separation between if necessary, and I can easily crate pups as well. For house sitting, I'm happy to have your pal hang out at my place or leave zephyr at home while I take care of your pup in your home and on their routine. Either way I’ll take care of your dog the way I take care of zeph to create a seamless supportive experience for your family.
“Emily has taken care of my cats a few times. She is very professional and good with them. I feel at ease while away from my place. It's nice to know I have someone reliable and experienced with taking care of animals.”
“Molly is wonderful! She walked my dog multiple times a week for three months and I was sad to leave the state and be forced to find a new dog walker. Fingers crossed the next one is as good as her! It can be stressful counting on someone else to safely exercise your dog (mine is often reactive), but you’ll feel at ease if that someone is Molly.”
“I had Carsyn watch my dog Paprika when I went out of town. Now paprika is a very anxious dog and when I introduced her to Carsyn, Carsyn immediately got on her level and let Paprika take her time And get used to her. When I came back Paprika looked very happy and loved. She took Paprika on walks and even gave her a bath which she hates. I recommend Carsyn to anyone looking for an amazing dog sitter/walker.”
“Melanie was great! She looked in on my two cats while I was away, and gave them care & attention- gave me peace of mind they were well taken care of with her photos & note! I’ll definitely book her again, and have already recommended her to a friend!”
“Zoe was wonderful! Very responsive, sent lots of pictures and great reports on how the doggos were, and handled our big dog who takes awhile to warm up to strangers very well. Thank you so much, Zoe! We and the pups appreciate you.”
“Ella did such a good job taking care of our boys. She was timely and very caring. Loved all the pictures she sent, highly recommend. Thank you again Ella!”
“My cat pals love to have Alex care for them when I am away! The pictures and updates I get from Alex while I'm away ensure they are having a great time while we are apart, always contant and happy. Alex is a caring and dependable, and we are very fortunate to have her as a family friend!”
“Bryan came over to give my pups a break while I was gone at an event for 7 hours. He sent me a picture and kept me informed about his schedule. I felt very comfortable having him stop in. I am sure the pup’s appreciated the visit also.”
“I highly recommend Tam to anyone looking for assistance in caring for their pet! I absolutely love and appreciate how Tam pays attention to detail and genuinely cares for every pet under her care. It is always such a comfort knowing that your pet is in such good hands, and with Tam that is always the case. She is prompt, reliable, trustworthy and will make sure to send updates. I couldn't ask for a better pet caregiver!”
About: Hello! My name is Emma, and I am a lifelong animal lover. From a young age, I began offering various pet care services for dogs of all sizes, breeds, abilities, and ages. I have ample experience in pet care through my time walking/sitting dogs, as well as at the Humane Society, where I was a volunteer for several years. I am comfortable and confident working with dogs who need special care/attention (puppies, seniors, medication requirements, special needs, etc.), and I can ensure that your beloved pet will be treated with as much love and care as one of my own! As a current UM graduate student, I typically have afternoons off and would love to spend this extra time caring for your pet(s)! I love to be active and outdoors, but I will never turn down some pup pets/cuddles! Whether your pet needs a leisurely walk, an adventurous hike, or a quick drop-in for some attention and peace of mind—I can provide it! My daily/weekly schedule affords me a lot of flexibility, so please reach out if you have unique concerns and/or needs. Leaving your furry family member with someone else can be daunting, but I assure you they will receive the attention, respect, and love they deserve. I care for animals per each owner's unique instructions/routines, understanding that there are preferred ways each animal can be cared for, and am committed to respecting the owner’s wishes/the pet’s needs.
“Chiara was great!”
“Katie took care of my cat while I was out of town for the weekend. My cat is older and tends to get stressed out when I’m away so I was really worried about leaving her. Katie made me feel reassured that my cat was in good hands. She even felt comfortable administering some meds! Katie is so sweet and trusting. I’d definitely recommend her and will be using her in the future. Thanks Katie ?”
“Sophia is a great person and absolutly loves dogs and all animals. She does a great job taking care of her dog Abigail. They go to the beach, on walks, and many other adventures. She will take great care of your dogs.”
“Bailey is awesome and took great care of our kitties! She's very easy to work with and we loved all the photos she sent of the pets. She's was even able to win over our shy kitty, Artemis!”
“I've had Emily watching my dog for years. He's a Great Pyrenees and can be a bit intimidating due to his weight (150 lbs). He loves Emily and she always does great with him. She regularly takes him on walks, brushes him, and returns a tired happy pup! She's also been a lifesaver when I've had to be out of town and stayed at my house. I never have to worry about him! I will always recommend Emily for your pups!”
“Rosey grew up around animals and it shows. She is a patient and caring pet enthusiast and our dogs just love her! I highly recommend her and am sure you’ll be glad to have her help.”
“Morgan has cared for my two large dogs, Ben and Angus, and my aging cat, Sophie, many times and she is a gem. She is someone you can completely trust to look after your beloved pets with compassion, kindness and patience. Morgan has a wealth of experience in animal care, as well as being extremely reliable and conscientious. She is especially wonderful with aging and special needs pets. Morgan will give you the greatest gift…peace of mind that your pets will be safely and lovingly cared for while you are away.”
