She is amazing! Our dog was obviously pampered and much more relaxed than usual when we get back. I’ve never been so confident that she was treated well and our house was exceptionally well cared for as well. She even taught our old dog a new game. 100% recommended.

Steven was an incredible sitter! He was extremely responsive, gave great updates, and took wonderful care of our dog. Noodle was clearly well loved and also kept on her routine. We would highly recommended Steven for any of your dog needs.

Kelly is an exceptionally professional, compassionate sitter. Our cats love her. We can always rest easy knowing that they are in her care. And, as a bonus, the many photos she sends are professional quality! We are printing them out now!

Val took care of our two dogs in our home during a recent 7 day trip. We have a fairly active but independent 7 year old pup and an elderly pug who needs daily meds and a little extra care and attention. We couldn't have been happier with the love and attention provided to the dogs and care taken of the home while we were gone. Val was punctual and provided regular updates allowing us to vacation without worrying about anything back home. Val gets top marks and my highest recommendation.

Chey was amazing with my 11 year old mostly deaf Australian Shepard. She stayed in our home and I'm pretty sure it was cleaner upon return than when we left! She provided many updates and Rue was very well taken care of. I highly recommend Chey!

Rosemary was absolutely incredible! She responded incredibly quickly and was available on short notice. Our dog is sometimes wary of new people, and Rosemary was awesome with letting Annie warm up to her on her own time. I will absolutely rebook Rosemary!!

Rachel was amazing! She helped with our dogs while we were gone for the weekend, and both dogs (and our cat) loved her and were so excited to see her. She stayed in communication with us the entire weekend and sent great pictures with updates. She followed all the instructions we left. Both dogs have terrible separation anxiety, but they didn’t seem to miss a beat while we were gone. Would definitely recommend!

Emmalee was fantastic. I had her stay with my dog and cat at my house for 7 days/nights over the Christmas holiday. She first wanted to come meet them and get a lay of the land before committing. It was a great idea because then my dog who can be timid to strangers was able to meet her and I could evaluate their interaction. Also, she asked if it would be alright if her boyfriend stayed with her. I really respected that she asked rather than not have asked. Emmalee was super responsive before, during and after the stay. She filled me in when there was concern about my dog being a picky eater or unusual bowel movements. My cat who is very shy warmed up to her very quickly, and her boyfriend! It was a miracle. She shared that my cat slept with them which means she felt totally comfortable. Emmalee left my house clean and picked up. She even washed and dried towels and sheets before leaving. Also, a nice little surprise, Emmalee left ornaments with my dog’s and cat’s pictures. What a sweet touch! I’ll definitely hire Emmalee again. She’s someone you can trust to be at your home and take care of your little loved ones.

During the holidays, we booked Stacey (fourth time hiring her) to watch our home and cat while we were out of the country. We are always extremely impressed with the sincere level of care and attention she provides. This time she housesat and took care of our (now) sole kitty cat. She always asks very caring questions during the pre-care 'meet & greet' and while we were away, she made sure to follow all of the feeding and litterbox instructions we left, played with our energetic kitty often and even sent us daily updates and photos to put our minds at ease. We returned home to a happy and healthy cat, who seemed to wonder where his new BFF went, and to a spotless house (better than we left it!), with detailed notes on the stay re everything from packages, to mail to cat care and beyond. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Overall, I would highly recommend Stacey to anyone in need of detail-oriented, reliable and responsible care for their home and pets. She truly went above and beyond to ensure that our home and kitty cat were well taken care of while we were away, and kept the communication going throughout. Stacey is THE BEST!

As someone who’s always been skeptical of strangers/using an app like Rover, especially on long travel work weekends I’d be gone, Celeste was freaking awesome. My dog can be very naughty and not listen well with me and likes to push boundaries however he was so good with her and loved her. I missed my dog a LOT but my anxiety wasn’t bad being separated, especially with how well she kept me up to date. Whenever she was gone for her personal time and things she needed to get done, she’d use my camera to check in on him and always gave me updates on his schedule/what they were doing/his health (recovering from some severe illness). When I got back, my place was cleaner than I left it & was very communicative. She’s very knowledgeable and knows what she’s doing and 100% trustworthy sitter. I would 1000000000% rebook again and with her and only her. HIGHLY recommend.

Elena was super great with our dogs and sent pictures playing with them in the backyard. She was very reasonable and flexible. Definitely would recommend her to anyone needing a dog-sitter, especially on short notice.

Katelyn stayed at my house and took care of my Jack Russell Terrier, Lucy. Katelyn has a very natural and calming effect and I could tell Lucy liked her right away. Everything went so smoothly and I could tell from the updates and pics that everything was going smoothly. It really put my mind at ease while traveling. When I returned my house was spotless (neater than when I left!) and Lucy was very happy, well fed and walked. I 100% recommend Katelyn and will seek her dogsitting help for my next trips!

I recommend Danielle as a responsible and loving pet caregiver. She has experience caring for a senior dog and raising two German Shepherds since puppies. She's a true dog mom and will love your fur babies like they were her own. She also has experience caring for cats and kittens, having watched our friends cats while they were out of town.

Rachel was a wonderful petsitter for our two cats. She was responsible and communicative during the entire time we were gone, and we cannot recommend her more! In addition to caring for the cats and keeping up with their complex feeding schedule, she also brought in our mail and watered our plants. Thank you Rachel!
