About: I’ve been taking care of animals all my life. I’ve had both cats and dogs for many years. I have also worked at a doggy daycare/boarding place for dogs and cats. I’m working part time in other jobs, but will always have time to stop by to take care of other animals every day of the week. I will stay over night, but there will be times where I cannot stay there for the full daytime. I will only be gone for 4-6 hours at most at a time. I will be sure to follow all of the rules from the client. I will feed your animals at the correct times, play with them, etc. The safety and comfortableness of your pets are my top priority.
“Bruce is wonderful! He is gentle, kind, and responsible. He takes his duties seriously which brings me peace of mind while I’m working long hours. My high energy dog received lots of attention and long walks and I couldn’t be happier. I will 100% schedule him again!”
“My best friend Shannon is highly responsible with pets. Having a cat of her own, she takes excellent care of him and ensures he is always well-fed, loved, and safe. She has also helped a friend by watching her dogs which she did very well. She showed them great love and care. Her friend and her pets were satisfied.”
“Emily is so great with Diesel. I appreciate her attention to detail and that she doesn’t mind when he’s acting particularly crazy. Diesel always comes back tires and ready for a nap, which is the most important thing for him.”
“Shaira was amazing! I contacted her rather last minute to walk my 12 yo dachshund while I was away for the weekend and he was staying with a friend. Odie instantly fell in love with her and even sat on her foot (which he rarely does and only for people he loves). She walked him around his favorite block and sent pictures! I would absolutely hire her again and recommend you do too.”
“Tyler has been great, we are very appreciative of the exercise and attention he has given to our dog. Reliable and clearly a dog lover!”
“Lisa was fantastic. She walked our puppy today and communicated very clearly before during and after. We’ll definitely have her walk our sweet pup again!”

“Eric's dog is very happy and well behaved, which is a testament to Eric's great love and care for dogs. He provides structure and fun and lots of love, enjoys long walks, and is super reliable. I trust him completely with my dog.”
About: What sets me apart from other sitters is my extensive background in pet care and my diverse experience with various types of pets. Since childhood, I have had the privilege of caring for a wide range of animals, including hamsters, Guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, cats, and even snakes. This exposure has given me a deep understanding of the unique needs and behaviors of different species, allowing me to provide tailored care to each pet under my supervision. One of my notable skills is training puppies and adult dogs. Through my experience, I have developed effective training techniques that promote positive behavior and reinforce obedience. Whether it's teaching basic commands or addressing specific behavioral issues, I have the expertise to guide dogs of all ages towards becoming well-behaved companions. Additionally, I have dedicated my time to volunteer work in the field of animal care. I spent several years volunteering at a veterinary clinic during high school, where I gained valuable hands-on experience in handling animals, administering basic medical procedures, and assisting with various aspects of veterinary care. This experience has equipped me with the knowledge and confidence to handle emergency situations, including performing CPR on dogs if necessary. Furthermore, I volunteered at a non-profit animal farm, which allowed me to work with a wide variety of animals in a farm setting. This experience enhanced my understanding of animal behavior and helped me develop a compassionate and attentive approach to their care. In terms of grooming, I am skilled in several aspects, including nail trimming, ear cleaning, and general grooming routines for dogs. I understand the importance of maintaining proper hygiene and ensuring the comfort of pets under my care. I can provide a calm and gentle grooming experience for dogs, making it a positive and stress-free process for them. With my diverse pet care experience, training skills, volunteer work at a vet clinic and animal farm, as well as my grooming expertise, I offer a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge that allow me to provide exceptional care for pets. I am committed to ensuring the well-being, safety, and happiness of the animals entrusted to my care. I am currently a full time online student so I can choose whenever I complete my classes which gives me flexibility in my pet care schedule! I am the most flexible pet sitter ever! Firstly before any appointment I ensure that my home is pet-proofed, removing any potential hazards or toxic substances. I secure the windows, electrical cords, and keep small objects out of the pets reach. I also will make sure your pet always has access to clean and fresh water. Regularly refilling their water bowl throughout the day to keep them hydrated. I will also engage your pet in physical activities to maintain their health and well-being. For example taking your dog for walk or playing games with them. For other types of pets I will also provide interactive toys for mental stimulation. I also do not mind grooming your pet according to their specific needs. For example brushing their fur, trim their nails, clean their ears. Overall I see pets as children and will protect and care for them as such! ❤️
“Jennifer was able to accommodate walking my dog super last minute. She was communicative and sent the sweetest updates on her walk. Will absolutely use her again :)”
“First time having Megan walk my dog while I was out of town for the weekend. She was friendly, communicative and punctual for every scheduled walk. And she squeezed in a last minute meet n' greet at our home the morning of (day we were leaving), which allowed me to see how comfortable my dog was with her. He warmed up to her immediately, and knowing he was in good hands, gave me peace of mind. Would definitely book again, thank you, Meghan!!”
“it couldn't have gone better--leaving my 1 year 11 month-old Labrador puppy spot for over a week with Anthony and Monique. Anthony has a real gift with doggies and, spot, who can be a little scared of new people and situations, obviously loved it there. I would use Anthony & Monique again in a heartbeat.”
“I have a 3 year old pit mix with a TON of energy, loves to run on the beach and visit dog parks. Catie did not hesitate to play with her and take her for long walks giving her the energy outlet she needed. Plus, she was able to trim her nails for me, something I couldn't get Kiko to sit still for. Thank you Catie!”
“I highly recommend Jazriel as a pet caregiver! Jazriel is responsible, loving, and goes above and beyond to ensure the well-being of every pet in his care. He even saved my fur baby from choking!! Not to mention he is skilled in mail trimmings and does them for free with every booking! Thank you Jazriel :)”
“Olivia is a loving pet caregiver. She has always had a love for any and all animals-big and small. She currently has a dog of her own, and this dog is treated like her child.”
About: I have taken care of dogs since I was 14. I have been a walker for other services for over 2 yrs. I've been told that I have a lot of patient with animals and can usually make friends with any animal. I'm currently working at home full time so I'll have plenty of time to take breaks to walk and play with your pet. I like to take walks and stay active, so I wouldn't mind frequent walks. I can crate your dog if needed. I treat every dog as my own with special care and attention. I leave nothing out that could potentially hurt any pet and I follow strict dietary needs for all animals.
“Patrick is very reliable and caring not only to his own dog (Cooper) but to any pet he encounters. He easily connects with their needs and follows the owners request to the letter. He has enthusiasm for life and all four-legged friends. You would be very fortunate to have him part of your pets daily routine!”
“Stephanie is a total dog mom! She loves caring for all kinds of dogs, taking them on walks, and giving great belly rubs! She used to take such great care of our family dog, Chase. She always made sure that he ate his meals on time and that he took his medication on schedule. She also bathed him regularly even though he tried his best to avoid baths! Stephanie loved to spend time with him and plan fun activities, and now that our beloved Chase has passed on she is looking to share her love of dogs with as many good boys and girls as she can.”
