About: I've taken care of animals for as long as I can remember. Throughout my childhood, my family had several cats and 3 dogs. I have experience with animals of all ages, from kitten/puppy to senior pets. I currently have 2 cats of my own, but I'm more than capable of caring for dogs as well (of all sizes/breeds). Most of my friends have dogs and I always look forward to seeing them and playing with them when I get the chance. I would love a dog of my own, but being a renter and moving around a lot I can't take on an additional pet at the moment. Even though I'm a cat household, all animals are welcome and will be treated like one of the family. I work full time from home so I'm always around to look after your fur babies. I can take frequent breaks during the work day to check in on them whether it be to feed them, play for a bit, or take care of bathroom breaks. During non-working hours, they will have my full attention. When your pet is in my care, my goal is to love them and care for them like they're one of my own. I want to adapt to your pet's needs whether that means a lot of play time, walks, or just some quality couch time. If your pet has any special needs or takes medication, I can accommodate and take care of them as needed. I'll provide as much interaction as possible and keep them safe and cared for (whether that's in your home or mine). I have a small, fenced in yard big enough for dogs to run around or play a game of fetch.
“Ryan is fantastic. He is reliable, kind, patient, and intentional with my dog. He always goes above and beyond, consistently providing my dog with the care that he needs. Ryan’s experience with pets is evident, and I’m always left with a peace of mind knowing that my fur baby is in good hands. Highly recommend Ryan as your next walker and pet sitter!”
“Aubrey always goes above and beyond. She is by far the best sitter I’ve ever had. My cat absolutely adores her (and he’s picky about strangers) and I feel so lucky whenever she sits for him.”

About: I’ve taken care of dogs and cats all of my life and have also been trained how to handle big dogs with high prey drives. I’m patient and loving to all critters and enjoy making pet-owners feel reassured about their beloved fur family. I also have experience with horses and managing multiple animals. I’m respectful of your home and privacy. I also love getting clear communication about your pets’s needs, preferences and quirks. I want to ensure your comfort and theirs. I’m a pet owner myself and am currently taking care of a beloved senior dog who is my best friend and a mischievous and hilarious cat. I understand how important it is to be careful and precise with pets who have various medical and health needs. I’m currently working during the day remotely and cannot do mid-day visits on MWF. I have availability in the mornings, weekends, and some evenings. I’ll have more flexibility starting January. I will make sure your pet and your home is secure, safe, and comfortable. I’m also happy to water plants or do other light tasks if needed. (i.e. turning lights on/off picking up mail etc…)
“Great communication and followed all instructions super well. Would recommend!”
