Jornelle watched our dog and house for two weeks while we were out of the country. She did a great job taking care of our dog and our house. She was extremely communicative with us and even cared enough to take our dog to her family’s Thanksgiving (after consulting with us) so our dog wouldn’t be left alone for too long. Would recommend!

Stephanie was fantastic with our five-year-old German Shepard mix while we were out of town for a few nights. She was very communicative and sent lots of pictures. I knew from the look on our dog's face in the pics that she was having a great time. Stephanie also took excellent care of our house while we were gone.

Christine was a fantastic sitter that anyone would be lucky to have take care of their pets. She was communicative, shared lots of photos, and was accommodating with some last minute booking changes. We have one cat and one dog, and both were safe in her care. When we returned home the house was clean and the animals were happy!

Diana is fantastic with animals, and takes great care of my cat, Figaro, every time she's watched him for me. She understands the importance of actively spending time with Figgy, whether he wants to cuddle up in her lap, play, or just coexist without being bothered. Diana sticks to feeding routines, keeping him away from houseplants, and always remembers where he does and doesn't like to get pet. I highly recommend her for your animal's care while you're away.

Katrina is a true animal lover who was great with my hyper 45-lb hound mix Sage. She's been on a couple of walks and one overnight housesit. I trust her to keep Sage (an unpredictable bolter when spotting squirrels) safe on the leash and reliabily show up for each walk, even accommodating last minute schedule changes. Katrina took good care of my house while we were gone and even picked up some bone shards that could have been a choking hazard. To top it all off, I got a selfie of Katrina & Sage snuggling in bed. Sage will be looking forward to her new caretaker's return soon.

Daniela was amazing! She stayed in my house for 16 days while we were out of the country and cared for my two dogs. One dog is very old with medical issues and needs a lot of care. Daniela bonded easily with both dogs, was so warm and loving to them, and was really responsible. She kept in touch with us while we were gone so we knew the dogs were fine and in good hands. She even left my house cleaner than it was when I left. I couldn’t recommend her more!

About: I started doing this for a friend that was going on vacation. I spoil Molly & treat her like I want mine to be care. I do this as a part time, I work from home, have my own routine. Like to be call three days in advance before you need my service. I don’t bring pet to my house, I believe is better not taking them out of their homes. I always treat them great. They are my baby pets.

Sasha’s amazing! I requested her to dogsit for me a few times because my dog Cypress absolutely loves her. She always runs over to her and starts wagging her tail. Sasha always makes sure Cypress is well fed, well groomed and gives her the attention she needs. And whenever I come back from out of state she seems happier than how I left her. If you want someone to actually care for your pet, this woman will not disappoint you
