Sarah was wonderful! Our boy, King had a happy long weekend with Sarah! She sent plenty of updates and photos and made it easy to get out of town and we didn’t feel rushed to return. We will happily leave our fur baby in her care again! Thank you Sarah for taking such good care of our boy!

Rose took such great care of our dramatic girl! She was easy to communicate with prior to the booking to make sure we were all on the same page about Lady’s needs, and she sent lots of pictures during her stay. Any dog would be lucky to be watched by Rose!

Aaron was absolutely fabulous with my dog, Rufus! He we flexible with time and great with providing updates. Knowing that Rufus had backyard to play in and one on one care was ideal for us. Rufus came back to us in a great mood. It was truly doggie vacation for him!

Yuki was so great with our dog, Sadie! Her apartment is perfectly set up to welcome a dog and had toys at the ready. She kept Sadie entertained while we discussed her routine and needs. We felt very relieved to have found Yuki for Sadie's overnight care and we got some happy pictures of her while we were away. Yuki was very communicative and we appreciated her flexibility on timing of the drop offs and pick up. We look forward to having Yuki care for Sadie again. Thank you!

Dax was so accommodating when I needed help boarding my dog, Bia, on short notice. Bia, can be a little anxious and high maintenance but when I got her back I think she was sorry to be leaving!

Jess was amazing. She took care of our elderly fog Molly who is 13. We had to go out of state for a family wedding and she wouldn't have been able to make that long ride. Jess sent regular picture updates and Molly was given lots of love and lots of walks. We highly recommend Jess and wouldn't hesitate to leave Molly with her again! Hire Jess and don't worry about your pets while your gone. She's awesome! Thanks Jess!

Great stay for Bennett. Anne and her sweet dogs were very welcoming. Her set-up with a fenced-in backyard is perfect. The photos and updates she sent let me see how my pooch was settling in comfortably. An excellent experience for both for me and for my dog.

Alison took great care of our 9 year old dog, Luna - her first time being left with a pet sitter. She sent me pictures and updates and checked in if she had any questions. We felt very comfortable leaving our dog with Alison and Luna seemed to have a great time and I think was a little sad to leave. Would definitely recommend Alison!

Molly took Walter on fairly short notice as our usual sitter was unavailable. She even ran him back and forth to a day camp for us on a couple of days. It was good to see pictures of him having fun with the pugs during our trip!

Ashton took such good care of my elderly dog, Auby! She is a true dog lover with a lot of experience and will treat your pet like her own. I received frequent updates while away. Auby loved being able to romp around their big back yard and snuggle up with her daughter. I would definitely recommend Ashton for your pet sitting needs.

Christine was a lovely host for Bode’s week of summer camp. She was quick to reply, lovely to speak with, but most importantly seemed to really care about Bode’s wellbeing and happiness. She has a huge fenced in yard that he had free reign to, and a lovely in ground pool. We will absolutely book with her again!

Elizabeth is awesome! We left our chihuahua with her for about 2 weeks while we were out of town, and we felt so comfortable knowing our little baby was in such a loving home, with someone who adores dogs as much as Elizabeth does! She sent us pictures, videos, and sweet little updates everyday, and we even had the opportunity to FaceTime with our little angel 🐾 We forgot to pack our dog’s winter coat, and it got quite cold, but Elizabeth had an extra coat that she bundled her in to make sure she was safe and warm on their walks through Evergreen. Also, our little pup gets nervous when we leave her and sometimes won’t eat because of it, but Elizabeth HAND FED her! And then she ate her whole dinner like that. Can you believe that? If that doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about how much Elizabeth cares, I don’t know what will. One more way that Elizabeth went above and beyond that really meant the world to us, was how flexible she was with scheduling. We had some unexpected very-last-minute changes to our trip, but Elizabeth was extremely accommodating, kind, and patient. She really had our back. Elizabeth is such a good person, and you can tell that she really cares about you, as well as your dog. If you’re looking for someone trustworthy and above-and-beyond to take care of your beloved dog, look no further! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you Elizabeth!

About: Hi there! I'm an online grad student with a flexible schedule, which means I have plenty of time to spend with your furry friend. My three-year-old Goldendoodle has given me tons of hands-on experience with pet care, from puppy days to now. Plus, I've been watching other people’s pups for over the past six years, so I've got a good handle on different breeds and personalities. What makes me stand out from other sitters is my genuine love for dogs and my dedication to creating a safe, loving environment for them. I make sure each dog gets the personalized care they need, whether it's long walks, fun playtime, or just some cozy cuddles. Here are a few extra things I offer: Puppy Training: Basic commands, house training, and socialization. Senior Care: Gentle walks, giving medication, and lots of patience. Behavioral Understanding: Recognizing stress or anxiety and handling it calmly. Your pet's happiness and well-being are my top priorities. I can't wait to give them the care and attention they deserve As an online graduate student, I have a flexible and accommodating schedule. This allows me to be available for your pet's needs throughout the day. Whether it's morning walks, midday play sessions, or evening cuddles, I can adjust my day to ensure your pet gets the attention and care they deserve. Here's a general idea of my availability: Weekdays: I'm available for walks, drop-ins, doggie daycare, and overnight stays. My online classes allow me to take breaks throughout the day, so I can provide frequent check-ins and quality time with your pet. Weekends: I'm generally free on weekends and can offer more extended care, whether it’s for a day trip or a weekend getaway. If you have any specific scheduling needs or special requests, just let me know! I'm happy to work with you to ensure your pet is well taken care of, no matter the time of day. When caring for pets, safety and trust are my top priorities. Whether in my home or my client's home, I strive to create a secure and comfortable environment for every pet. In My Home: Safe Environment: My home is pet-friendly, with secure indoor and outdoor spaces to ensure your pet’s safety. I regularly check for any hazards and keep harmful items out of reach. Supervision: Pets are never left unattended for long periods. I ensure they are always supervised, especially during playtime and outdoor activities. Cleanliness: I maintain a clean environment to promote health and hygiene. Toys, bedding, and feeding areas are cleaned regularly. In Your Home: Respectful Care: I treat your home with the utmost respect, ensuring that I follow any specific instructions you provide. I clean up after myself and your pet to maintain a tidy space. Safety Measures: I ensure all doors and gates are securely closed to prevent any accidental escapes. I’m attentive to any potential hazards in your home and take steps to keep your pet safe. Communication: I provide regular updates and photos, so you always know how your pet is doing. If I notice anything unusual, I’ll contact you immediately to discuss the best course of action. No matter where I’m caring for your pet, I aim to create a loving and secure environment where they feel happy and relaxed. Your pet’s well-being is always my top priority, and I’m committed to earning your trust through reliable and compassionate care.

My labradoodle Greta thrived while staying with Andrew for 6 days. She’s always a bit shy and anxious when away from me but Greta had obviously bonded with Andrew during her stay. I got photos every day so I could see that she was relaxed and having fun with other dogs staying with Andrew. I will definitely re-book with Andrew the next time I’m looking for Greta care.

Tedra is such an amazing pet sitter I don’t even know where to begin! She was so thoughtful throughout the entire process and took such good care of our dog it truly felt like our pup was on vacation. She sent pictures and updates throughout the weekend and she went above and beyond with her care. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone without hesitation. She is friendly, responsible, and truly has a gift with dogs.

Catharine provided a great home away from home for our pup! She was very responsive, sent great pictures, and was very flexible to work around us. Our pup had a great time and enjoyed having the company of her pups in Catherine's comfy home. Catharine was also very flexible, responsive, and accommodating when our flights were delayed. Overall great boarding experience!
