Shelly took great care of all our critters. She communicated consistently, and took plenty of pictures so we could see how happy and healthy they were.

Lisa was fantastic with our kitties! We came home to two very happy and well-cared cats. Prior to booking, Lisa met us and our cats at our apartment and was very attentive to us describe our cats routines and behaviors. During the booking Lisa provided detailed updates and pictures from her drop-ins to leave our minds at ease while we were gone for the holidays. We highly recommend her for any of your cat-sitting needs and will definitely be using Lisa again for future drop-in needs for our cats!

Ali did a wonderful job with drop-in sessions for my senior dog. He loved her visits and was always happy and tired afterwards. Ali’s communication is prompt and clear. A member of my household is immunocompromised so we take precautions around illness, and Ali was flexible and very respectful.

Our cats are still warming up to the idea of people and tend to hide (even from us on some days), but Nichole did her best to win them over anyway. It gave me great peace of mind to know the person checking on them was so attentive, even if the cats themselves weren't enthusiastic about a new friend. Thanks so much!

Justin is the best! He has taken care of our puppy, Cash, several times and we are always comforted by the love he shows as soon as Cash walks in the door! As a puppy, he has a lot of energy and Justin takes time to play with Cash while he cares for his every need.

Troy has been nothing but amazing, not only with our dog but with everything he does! Our pup is a bit people selective and moose was comfortable in no time due to Troy being patient and knowledgeable about how to handle a more reactive dog. My husband and I would 100% recommend him to take care of your furry friend too! He is always on time and makes sure he leaves the house cleaner then when he got there!

Brittany was so nice and kind to our cats! She sent great pics and updates and we really feel like she cares and spent time getting to know them and taking care of them! She even sat on the floor with them! We will definitely re-book her! It is so nice to go out of town and not worry because you know your cats are being taken great care of!

Patty came in clutch when my sitter cancelled on me a couple days before I left for vacation! She even took the time to come the day before to meet both Penelope and I. She sent us plenty of photos too! Penelope absolutely loved her. Will definitely use her again :)

Jessica worked for me when I had a boarding business in Iowa. She was fantastic with the dogs, keep a clean space, and was always on time. She moved and I lost a great asset. I hope you find the greatness I did with your pet(s)!
