Lori was wonderful! Very communicative and easy to work with, she did a great job with checking in on my boys and providing updates and pictures; I felt so comfortable being away knowing she was there. 10/10 and I will definitely be booking Lori again when I am traveling.

Shelly was absolutely wonderful with my cat, Cupcake. She was a quick learner and was able to do her subcutaneous fluids while I was away. Shelly is definitely an animal lover and has a friendly presence. My grumpy old lady Cupcake really enjoyed her coming by! Her communication is awesome and she gave me thorough updates. I highly recommend her to watch your fur babies!

Kassy did a great job with my Labrador. My furry friend has a fenced yard and is rarely on a leash. Kassy took the time to get her used to her harness before walking her.

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!

I would recommend Natasha for any animal needs. She did great with my two senior cats. They were well fed, relaxed, and happy when we returned from our trip. She was an excellent communicator, shared photos throughout, and consistent with her visits. I will definitely use her again!

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!

Elizabeth is such an amazing person and genuine dog whisperer. She fostered my Phyta and her puppies (one of which I have now). She has also fostered many others. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable about reading dog behavior, understanding their personalities, and tending their needs. She is flexible with scheduling, organized, and very professional to work with. While watching my doggos, Elizabeth updated me on how the dogs were doing and sent me pictures. They are always living their best life when they are with her!

Claudia has watched my dog several times and he gets super excited when he sees her! He is young and a bit high maintenance but Claudia handled him with ease. She gave him LOTS of love and attention and even sent me multiple updates and photos while I was away! I used to feel terrible dropping him off at a kennel but now I know he's in great hands with Claudia. 5 Stars all the way!! Highly recommend!!
