Samantha was wonderful! She was able to help let out my senior dog while I was gone on work travel. She came and met him in advance, communicated with me while at the house and was so kind with our pet. I would use here again for sure!

Giselle was awesome at keeping me updated with pictures and notes when taking care of my dog. She took great care of Levi and the updates helped me keep peace of mind while away! Plan to request her services again in the future.

This is the second time I've had Julia walk/watch my dog and I couldn't be happier! She's very communicative and I felt comfortable leaving my dog for the weekend. My dog can be nervous around strangers but immediately loved Julia!

Nell has petsat since she was a young teen. She cared for our aged dog, walking her, keeping her company, and cleaning up after her. I have recommended her to numerous neighbors who have used her services, including running with extra energetic dogs and sending pictures and updates to nervous parents. Polite, punctual, and knowledgeable, you can't find a better companion for your pup!

Emily is a kind, caring soul and amazing with all animals! She does a great job ensuring pets get extra love and cuddles, as many walks or exercise as they need, and is a pro at handling medications for dogs. Aside from how great she is with pets, Emily is great at watching your house, bringing in the mail, or keeping things tidy as needed! She would be a great person to help watched your furry friend while you are away!

Sam is amazing with my anxious and reactive dog, who has a medication schedule and who I do not trust just anyone to care for. When watching my dog they keep me updated and follow my instructions to a T, I can tell they love my pet like their own. I recommend anyone looking for a sitter to book with Sam!

As always, we appreciate Lila being able to watch the girls. She even came super early in the morning before she had to work which we know isn’t easy and she gave Luna some medicine for her eye which was so kind of her to do. We will definitely be booking her again!

About: I have always loved and grown up with dogs. I am used to high energy and playful dogs who need a lot of attention. I have a pretty flexible schedule for the moment so I should be able to accommodate most asks for dog sitting and check ins. I do have a small, very loving and friendly dog who would love company. But of course that means your dog must be small dog friendly. I also love going to dog parks if your pup is friendly and social. Please let me know what works best for you and I look forward to meeting your furry friend! I currently work from home so I am so so happy to take a break from my computer by taking the dogs outside for some sunshine. I have a dog friendly home, nothing too important that can be chewed on and nothing on the floors to be swallowed. I am at home for almost all the day, except when I am taking the pups out so I am always around to play and to supervise.

Chloe was a great help! She came over to meet the cats and see where things were kept, and she was very sweet with the cats, who took a liking to her. She was ready for any special needs they had, and was on time to check in with a picture, which made me feel better about them being taken care of.

Marnie was our long term dog sitter for several years before she sadly left us to seek out a new adventure. She was always the most responsible dog sitter. She would constantly send pictures of the dogs letting us know they were happy and well cared for. We had a senior dog that required hand feeding and special medication and she accommodated those needs and requests without any complaints. She is incredibly mature, responsible, and reliable. I believe she spent most of her time at our house sitting on the couch reading while snuggling the puppies. Our house was always left in a clean and neat fashion. She would even go out of her way to clean up after herself and change the sheets on the bed she slept in. If she didn't move to a new city, we'd still be hiring her for our dog sitting needs today! I would HIGHLY recommend Marnie for any pet sitting jobs, she is the best!!
