Stephanie had done a wonderful job walking my dog, Mikey! She was very communicative and left great notes and pictures during his walks. He can be energetic, but she really handled his wild side without any problem. I could tell that she has a real love for dogs and felt like she was taking care of Mikey the way she would her own pup.

I love having Michael take care of our puppy Geronimo! He is incredibly reliable, punctual, and genuinely cares for my dog’s well-being. Not only does my furry friend come back happy and tired after each walk, but Michael also goes the extra mile by providing updates and even occasional cute picture. I highly recommend their services to anyone in need of a trustworthy and dedicated dog walker!

Anne took such good care of my pup while we were out of town! Jasper had a great time with her and Anne was always on time and a complete professional. Highly recommend her. She even did a meet and greet with us and Jasper before we went out of town. She’s super communicative and gave us peace of mind to know that Anne was taking such care of him while we were out of town.

Carrick is amazing. My boxer Ben doesn’t warm up to people very easily. Within minutes of meeting Carrick Ben was leaning up against him with his tail wagging like he found his best friend. Highly recommend Carrick for both walking and sitting. He’s extremely dependable and communicative.

I have known Leah for 4 years. I learned of her love for animals early on in our friendship when we were just getting to know one another. Not a conversation went by without her telling some story about her horses, cats, or dogs. In addition to a personal love of animals she chose a career path that combines all of her passions: the ocean, conservation, and the law. She is responsible, diligent, and kind. She would make a great dog sitter, I cannot think of anyone else I would rather have take care of my furry friend.

I have known Nicole for years, and she is among the most thoughtful, informed, and perceptive pet caregivers I've ever had the pleasure of knowing! She has spent all of her life raising, expertly-training, and loving her own dogs; and has a lifetime of looking after her own pets as well as the pets of friends and family. Most pet interactions I've seen Nicole have are with dogs (big and small!), cats (friendly and grumpy!), rodents, turtles, and small lizards - but Nicole is comfortable with animals of all kinds, shapes, and sizes; and everywhere she goes, she is the most responsible and most caring person toward pets in the room. What's more, Nicole is a quick and diligent learner, and cares about best practices for ensuring that pets and caregivers are both happy and safe. The bottom line is this: Nicole understands how to behave in front of pets, is intuitively gentle but knows when to be firm, and projects the trust and warmth that any good pet caregiver needs. I would rely on Nicole in a heartbeat to take care of any pet, especially my rowdy German Shepard! Anyone and their pet(s) would be lucky to meet Nicole and are in terrific hands when she is around.

Kate is a dedicated, reliable, and genuinely loving caregiver that we've trusted with our German Shepherd for years. Kate has walked, sat, and had scheduled playtime with our Shepherd on numerous occasions, and our dog didn't want her to go! We have had other sitters that we never heard from during our time away from our dogs or that didn't follow directions; this isn't Kate. She prioritizes our pet and makes sure that we are updated on how they're doing, the fun they're having, and any questions that arise during their stay. Kate's communication is impeccable, providing us with peace of mind while we're away. We can easily recommend and endorse Kate for any of your needs.

Rachel went above and beyond in taking care of my dog. I have a very energetic golden retriever so Rachel takes him on super long walks to worn off his energy. Yoyo had a great time with Rachel and enjoyed his exercises
