“Dana is really amazing with my new rescue, Buddy.”
“This is the second time I’ve booked with Eleanor and she takes such good care of my animals! She always gives a detailed message about each visit and how they’re doing which is very nice. She always gives them lots of love and attention and goes above and beyond for them! Thank you again Eleanor!!”
“Esmerilda is an absolutely fantastic person and cares immensely for our dog. She has been our weekly dog walker for a little over 6 months--Our dog is a rescue and was quite difficult in the beginning, but Esmerilda has done a lot to help train and rehabilitate her. She also has done house sitting for us. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help with their dogs.”
“Kaelin has been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. She has cared for our cat and dog during vacations for many years. Both animals adore her and get very excited when they see her. Kaelin is very conscientious and reliable. Do not hesitate to hire her for your pet sitting needs.”
“Nora is a very trustworthy and compassionate individual. When it comes to working, she tends to do whatever it takes to make sure she gets the full job done. She tends not to find ways out of a commitment once she has already committed. I’ve seen her interact with her family dog, Kota, and she always lets him cuddle up!”
“Hope is absolutely amazing! Our dogs love her. She genuinely cares about our pets and sends videos and pictures often. She's always a joy to work with and will go above and beyond to make sure that they get the play time and cuddles they need.”
“Maddie is always on time and our Rocky loves her! He waits patiently by the door for her every morning. She’s always super communicative and takes the extra steps to focus on the little things like checking Rocky’s paws after walks for stickers and foxtails.”
About: I am currently an Animal Science student at UC Davis and have over 7 years of working with over twenty species of animals including reptiles, amphibians, birds, and both exotic and domestic mammals. I currently work at the UC Davis Campus Veterinary Services and have previously worked at the UCD Veterinary Rehab Center, and San Francisco Zoo in their Animal Resource Center (where I have learned how to clean enclosures, prepare diets, properly handle, and train over twenty species of exotic animals). Last summer I worked as a PetsHotel associate in PetSmart where I was responsible for monitoring Doggy Day Camp with an average of 20 dogs per group, caring for boarding dogs, leading individual sessions with dogs, and caring for boarding cats. Not only do I have extensive first-hand experience with pet care, but I also have research experience involving animal behavior, training in raptor handling, and have been a dog owner my entire life. I currently have two cats of my own and 15 other pets (all insects, reptiles, and amphibians)! I am available on T/W/Thr before 11:30am and after 12:40pm, and M/F/Sat/Sun all day! I have a very flexible schedule so I can dedicate a lot of time to your pets. Safety and trust are two of the most important things to me when caring for pets. For a pet to feel safe, I always take my time when greeting them for the first time, getting down to their level, and not making any sudden sounds or movements that may come across as a threat to the pet. This ensures an initial formation of trust between me and the pet. Following pet parent instructions is also essential and I make sure to be aware of the pet's needs and their preferred routine so I can make them feel as comfortable as possible. Additionally, I am a very vigilant person and am always keeping an eye on the pet I am caring for, to ensure their environment is safe and free of any hazards and the pet continues to be healthy and happy.
“Amy was great!”
“Hanna took excellent care of my pets. One of my dogs, Dusty, is old and difficult to deal with. Dusty typically has accidents everywhere around the house, gets in the trash, and refuses to go outside. Hanna handled her perfectly. Not only did she exercise Dusty daily, but she was also able to administer her oral medication. On top of handling Dusty, she gave lots of attention to my 3 cats. Hanna fed them, gave them water, and played around with them for even longer than I paid her for. Overall 10/10 experience. Handles challenging situations very calmly and does not become overwhelmed!”
“One of the most knowledgeable people I know when it comes to dogs. Or any other animal to be honest. Is caring and will always put the animal’s needs, comfort and safety first. The first person I go to when I need help with my dogs.”
About: Growing up, we were surrounded by animals - dogs, cats, hamsters, lizards, frogs, and snakes. During COVID, I slowly began my journey in house sitting for family, friends, and neighbors. I've cared for many cats and small to large dogs for long periods. My most extended board was for a month! In the early mornings, I work at a local Starbucks for about 4-6 hours a weekday. Besides this, I have a few classes throughout the day that I take online, so I am mostly home and available to care for your pets as best as I can. I like to go on 20-45 min walks around the nearby park/ greenway during the evening when it is cooler. At my Home: I would make sure the pet(s) feel comfortable in my home and with me but slowly try to gain their trust. As well as making sure they are calm, I will respect their space when first meeting them. In both my home and the clients, I want to be able to communicate any responsibilities and expectations I need to meet as your pet sitter. I am a reliable person overall in my daily life; I like schedules and structure and Making decisions during stressful times. I am always flexible with my time, so I can talk to my pets on walks, play with them, and help maintain their physical lifestyle. Besides this, I always want anyone and everyone to have a safe and welcoming environment around me, even animals. So my priority is ensuring they feel safe and comfortable in trusting me, which means for both the owner and their pets.
“Rozie is very good with animals. She quickly befriended my dog who is usually very wary of new people, and I have seen her have similar interactions with many animals, including dogs, cats, rats, and birds.”
About: I've taken care of dogs and cats for more than 20 years. When I was younger, I rescued abused and neglected dogs back in Ukraine. Since then, I have had cats and dogs in Ukraine until I escaped the war in April 2022. Now that I am in the US, I often take care of the dogs and cats of my host families. I hope to take care of your pets as well! I have a flexible schedule and can work on most days, including weekends and holidays. On weekdays, I may need to step out to drop off and pick up my daughter from school. Every day, I walk, feed and clean up after my host family's two cats and one dog. I will ensure that the client's pets are safe and will be attentive to any special needs. Since I have taken care of many pets before, I know what I need to be aware of. I will also make sure to leave the client's house in the same condition as it was when they have left.
“Brittney has been an exceptional dog sitter for us over the past year. Her unwavering commitment to ensuring our furry family members are cared for and loved is unparalleled. Her intuitive understanding of our dogs' needs, coupled with her genuine affection for them, made us feel completely at ease each time we had to be away. We've been consistently impressed with her professionalism, punctuality, and communication. Brittney has a unique knack for creating a bond with each dog she cares for, making them feel comfortable and at home in her presence. We couldn't be happier with the high level of care and kindness she extends toward our pets. Her services have exceeded all of our expectations, and we heartily recommend Brittney to any animal owner in need of a reliable and loving pet sitter.”
“Miranda is a fantastic, caring, attentive, and knowledgeable pet owner, and that is what also makes her a great pet sitter! She has watched my dog for me many times and I have never once been concerned for her care. I always ask her for advice for horse care as well, she has a lot of experience with all types of animals and I trust her completely. If you choose her to watch your pet, know they will be getting all the love and care you hope for.”
