Jessica was an amazing house sitter. The boys got spoiled with her and she was so loving to them. Hey miss her already. She was very prompt with communication. We plan on using her again in the future. Thank you Jessica!!

Lauren did an excellent job of taking care of our dogs while we were away. She sent updates and photos daily, and was responsive to any questions I had. Our dogs looked happy and loved in every photo. I would book with her again!

Sarah was wonderful to work with! She communicated well and even made a special trip to the pet store to grab some calming treats for Louie when he unexpectedly had some trouble with fireworks. I would recommend her to all my pet friends!

Our dog is a little nervous and he seemed to do great with Molly staying with him for the weekend! We got periodic photo updates so we could see how he was doing. We’d definitely have Molly stay with him again!

Skye was incredible house sitting our 2 pups for 4 nights and 5 days. She maintained communication and sent frequent photos. She made time to come socialize with our dogs during a short visit prior, so that she could get to know them as much as possible. Unfortunately, one of our pups got an upset tummy while we were away and had some accidents in the house. She was so gracious and kind in cleaning it all up, and went the extra mile in giving our dog a probiotic (we had some in the house), and cooking her chicken and rice to help, upon our request. 10/10 will book with Skye again. Thanks Skye for taking great care of our fur children! <3

Alisa was great. She was very helpful and responsive in all communication. She seemed to figure out our dog’s little quirks naturally. We loved the pictures and updates she sent. We came home to a happy dog and a well kept house.

I give Stephanie a 10 out of 10!! She has been watching over our animals from 2018 and we have been more than happy with her every single time! We went from just 2 pups, to a small acreage with chickens, turtles, kitties, and bunnies. Stephanie can do it all! I have never once worried about our home and animals while we’ve been away. Stephanie is super reliable and trustworthy, she is loving and caring to our pets (like they’re her own), and she is very respectful of our space and home. Everything you could want in pet-sitting, Stephanie offers!

Megan was absolutely amazing! My dog really liked her and she was really great with her, which made me feel a lot better with it being the first time I've left her. She sent lots of pics throughout the week and kept open communication before and during her stay. Will 100% book her again next time we go out of town!

Traci did an amazing job with my pup Daisy while I was out of town. She was great with texting several times a day with updates and photos, and even got some toys out that I hadn’t seen for a while 😉. Daisy lost her brother last fall and has had a hard time adjusting with some anxiety. Traci was so patient with her and did a great job of making her feel comfortable and working with her. I will definitely request Traci for future trips!

Samara was amazing!! Very communicative and timely. Was upfront with everything happening at home. Took my pup on a walk and they clearly played lots as he was exhausted when I got home! Everything was cleaned up and she did everything I asked of her :-) will definitely have her back and would recommend her to my family and friends!

Morgan did an amazing job with our husky Max!!! Max can be a handful and I was nervous leaving Max with someone he wasn't familiar with, but I had an instant good vibe from Morgan. She stayed at our house and with Max for 5 days and 5 nights and from the daily reports and pics we got, she and Max got along great. I will definitely reach out and request Morgan again. And would highly recommend Morgan. Max was happy and calm when we came home which tells me he enjoyed his time with Morgan as well. Thank you Morgan we appreciate you.

Dorothy has watched my dog on several occasions. I never worry about her when she is there. She is happy and maybe a little spoiled. I love the pictures that Dorothy sends me which helps me not feel guilty about leaving my baby for the day or week.
