“Gray loves all animals. They have taken care of my house full of both cats and dogs while we were away on multiple occasions, and I never worried for a second. Gray has a very calm way with animals, and dogs and cats especially seem to gravitate to them. Gray is also responsible and respectful of all types of people, and all types of fur-babies. I cannot recommend enough!”
About: I’ve been caring for my 9 year old lab-mastiff mix, Wadadli, since he was 8 weeks old. Our favorite walks are the Evergreen Cemetery trails, Fore River Sanctuary and Capisic Pond Park. Wadi and I both enjoy playing and walking with puppy to senior dogs. My schedule is flexible, but prefer walks between 9am and 12pm. I’m happy to drive to pick up your pup and will offer to send you photos throughout our walk or play. I have a fenced in back yard and dog friendly home. I’ll always ask about your pets allergies and preferences before finalizing a walk or play plan.

Jennifer is caring, attentive and extremely reliable. She has a great deal of experience in caring for dogs, which is evident. Ella looks forward to playing with her dog, who is very sweet. We are new to the area and we were initially hesitant in leaving Ella with a pet sitter but we very comfortable and know Ella is safe with Jennifer. We highly recommend Jennifer without any hesitation.”

Haley is communicative, good a problem solving, and has never met an animal that she didnt love or who didn’t love her. She grew up with dogs and has years of experience pet and sitting. Your pet could not be in better hands!”
About: I grew up with cats and dogs - ranging in size and temperaments - and have loved animals since I was young. I have also been a solo pet parent. For previous clients, I have provided drop-in visits, including walks and playtime, as well as longer-term overnight care, including feedings, supplements and medication, and all the attention they desire. I understand how important it is to feel comfortable leaving your pets with someone that you can trust and rely on. I currently work a remote full-time job with flexible hours, so I am generally available throughout most weekdays and anytime on weekends. I am also open to long-term pet care/house sitting. Happy to accommodate your time preferences as much as possible. I like to take care of other's pets in the style of care that is normal to them. I want each pet to feel as comfortable and maintain their routine as much as possible, in order to ensure their trust and to relieve any anxiety they may feel. Owner's instructions are always extremely helpful in order to achieve this.
About: With a childhood filled with furry friends, my pet care approach is a blend of experience and heartfelt connection. Growing up surrounded by animals, I learned the language of wagging tails and content purrs. This background shapes the essence of my service – a commitment to provide your pets with the same warmth and understanding they've always known, making their time with me more than just care; it's a continuation of the loving environment they're accustomed to. I work as a professional photographer, but I have plenty of free time during the winter months to provide services. My schedule is pretty flexible. I meticulously create a secure space, free from hazards, ensuring your pet's well-being is the top priority. Through transparent communication and updates, I build trust, keeping you informed about your pet's activities and mood. The environment I provide is not just physically safe but emotionally reassuring. With a watchful eye and a caring touch, I strive to offer a haven that reflects the same love and attention your pet receives in your own home.
“Brandon was a great pet sitter! I have a cat with special needs and he was attentive and always kept me updated- it made me feel so much more comfortable with going out of town. He was also SO good with my other cat who is super shy. I will definitely be using him again!”
About: I’ve had pets of all kinds for my entire life and have an older dog / young cat myself. I have helped raise dogs from puppies. I can also take care of pets who have special medical considerations :). I’m a 2nd year medical student and am either studying at home most days or can be flexible with whatever your pet care needs may be. I will abide by all requests set forth by the client in their home. I will make sure that your pet is safe and happy.
“Rob watches my black lab Harken whenever my wife and I leave town. He's a family friend that grew up with labs and he loves our dog just as much as we do. Whenever he watches our dog, Harken, he sends photos and takes him on long walks around Portland to the Eastern Prominade where he throws a tennis ball until my dog is content, which is no small feat. Our dog, Harken, starts to cry in the car every time we pass Rob's house because he want's to go over and visit. Rob's our favorite dog sitter.”
“Tucker has walked and taken care of my dog. He is prompt and takes the time to do what it is your dog wants to do, whether it be sniff the whole walk, be off leash or jog. He is the guy you want with your best friend.”

“I've known Saras for 25 years and she is extremely dedicated to caring for amimals. She believes that pets are fully a part of the family and treats them with affection and respect. She is sensitive to individual pet needs, for example, noticing when a cat needs an adaptive strategy for jumping up on the couch or a dog is agitated. She walks my dog regularly and loves spending time with him. Additionally, Saras is timely, detail-oriented, and true to her word, making her a great person to recieve important pet care details. She is a clear communicator and always checks for understanding. Saras is an excellent dog walker and pet sitter!”
