“Mariah was such a breath of fresh air for us. We have struggled to find a reliable and trust worthy dog sitter that our pup feels comfortable with and i felt so secure with Mariah. The level of attention and care she showed towards our pup made us feel so comfortable. She is flexible, timely and sent a ton of photos and updates which always makes me feel at ease. Thank you again!”
“Mayra is an excellent pet sitter, she has watched Molly our German shepard multiple times when we have had out trips, also when we had our little one. She is super nice, respectful and defined shows Molly the love we would. Molly shows happiness and is very cheerful when she sees mayra which totally tells you the bond. She's a total pet lover.”
About: My parents have always had dogs since I was 10 years old. When I moved out at 18 years old, I visited often and took care of the dogs when they were out of town. I have also been a dog sitter for my sisters border collie for up to several weeks at a time. I have also done some cat sitting when friends are out of town. I like to not only check on them for the basics, such as available food water, environment, and cleanliness, but I also like to stick around for some play time to get some energy flowing and socialize them for mental health 😊 I take one look at the cute whittle faces and I get sucked in! 🤍❤️ I work full time during the week so Monday-Friday I am only available from 5:30-6:30am & 4-10pm. On weekends I have a lot of availability and flexibility generally. I am happy to go above and beyond the basics, and whether that’s playing fetch, maybe a little tug of war, or taking for a walk, those things are my pleasure to be able to do for your furry family member.
About: I grew up around all kinds of animals. My aunt had a huge farm in Mississippi and every year she would take me out to take care of all the animals and taught me all about them. She had 12 dogs and every time I was there I learned more about animal care and did everything that was suppose to be done. I recently lived with two cats, a dog, a bunny, and a chameleon. I have always grown up taking care of all my pets and family friends pets. I also used to pet sit my neighbors cats. I am just looking to help anyone out in need of pet care. I am moving forward with school and plan to work with animals as my career. I think this experience will help me a lot along my journey. I am a student part-time so I will have plenty of time to do drop-ins, walks, and house/pet sitting on weekends and most days during the week. I am available to feed, walk, and play with any animal. I will be offering help with any animal care needed but am unable to do it at my own house. It will have to be at the client's home as I do not have the proper yard for animals. I will take care of the client's little loved ones and home like they are my own.

I can feed, walk, playing, and provide basic grooming (bathing, brushing, and drying) for your dog(s) whenever you need me to between 5 pm-10 pm, Monday-Friday, and on the weekends occasionally.
“Elizabeth was great for drop-in visits with my cat, Kaylee. She was communicative about how my cat was doing and did her best to make sure she was comfortable (she's skittish around strangers). Will definitely work with her again!”

“Wonderful sitter, really great with my extremely shy cat. She also gives really detailed summaries which comforted us about our fur baby while we were out of town. Super great cat sitter! She was so patient and he really came around for her more than past sitters we’ve used. If someone can get my cat to come out from under the bed, that’s a huge milestone. Thank you Madison!”
“We met Tiali for the first time today in preparation for an upcoming house sit with our dog and 3 chickens. She asked great questions and is clearly engaged and thinking how to best meet our needs and expectations. I have a good feeling about the upcoming week!”
“Julissa and her husband did a wonderful job looking after our Misty when we were out of town for one week. We scheduled to have them drop in on her in our back yard and the weather got really hot while we were away. They paid her an extra visit to make sure she was taken care of and were able to arrange a solution to keep her inside and out of the heat. They’re kind, excellent with communication and genuinely cared for our dog. We can’t wait to hire them again.”
About: I've taken care of dogs for the last 4 years, with neighbors and friends relying on me to walk, feed and bathe their pets. I have raised and trained a labradoodle puppy who is now 1.5 years old. I am currently studying biology at UC Davis. I am available after 5 pm on weekdays and on the weekends. I'm also available to care for your dog over the holidays, like winter break and Christmas. I have a fenced backyard with a grass area. Additionally, I also have a friendly labradoodle to keep your dog company. I can also carate your dog, if you prefer.
“My dog Windy was very happy when I got back from my trip. Morgaine was excellent about long walks, sending photos, and keeping me up to date with drop-in visits with her. I definitely recommend Morgaine for your animal's care needs, thank you!”
“First, just here to say that my dog is a challenge. He loves his people (our immediate family) but he barks at everyone else...even people he sees regularly. We have not had much success with pet nannies in the past with the exception of one or two people. In fact, by no fault of our last person that attempted to walk tucker, she was unable to leash him for an hour and 15 mins into the visit ??♀️ Loretta is no short of amazing...she saw and heard the challenge and was able to leash tucker, walk him, get him to do his duty outside, and come back in for playtime, all within the normal 30 min time frame! I was shocked and pleased and thankful! We will use Loretta again in the future for sure! She is so respectful of all our quirky house rules with the dog and did everything we asked to a tee. She's a godsend! ?”
“Repeat Customers!!! We always know the dogs will be well taken care of. Jahquan is reliable and responsive. We would recommend him to any dog owners.”
“moriah was amazing!!”
“I had the pleasure of entrusting my beloved furry daughters to Geraldine for dog sitting and care, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Ger is an absolute gem when it comes to looking after dogs. From the moment I dropped off my girls, I knew they were in good hands. Ger shows genuine love and affection for them like they were her own, making sure all their needs were met, from feeding and walks to playtime and cuddles. In my experience, my dogs were associated with hers, and her dogs Kodak Harley and DeSoto are well trained, docile and loving towards strangers and new furry friends! I believe what sets Ger apart from others is her exceptional attention to detail and commitment to safety. I never once worried about my dog's well-being during their stay. She provided regular updates and even sent adorable pictures to ease my separation anxiety! It's clear that Ger is not just a dog sitter, but a true dog lover. I wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone seeking reliable, caring, and dedicated dog sitting and care services. Kiko and Nakia can't wait for their next visit with her every time. Thank you, Ger, for being such a trustworthy, pet loving caregiver and confidante!”

About: As a dog sitter, what sets me apart from others is my unique combination of qualities and strengths that make me stand out. Some key differentiators might include: Great Flexibility: My ability to adapt to various schedules and cater to the specific needs of each dog and their owners sets me apart. This flexibility ensures that both the dogs and their owners feel comfortable and well taken care of. Helpful Nature: My willingness to go the extra mile to be a valuable resource for pet owners and their dogs sets me apart as a caring and supportive dog sitter. My helpful attitude and advice contribute to a positive and enriching experience for the dogs I care for. Dedication to Happiness: My focus on keeping the dogs entertained and happy during their time with me is a significant differentiating factor. My commitment to ensuring their well-being and joy sets me apart and fosters strong relationships with both the pets and their owners. As a dog sitter, I understand the importance of accommodating the diverse needs of pet owners. My schedule is designed to be flexible, allowing me to provide dog sitting services that align with your specific requirements. Whether you need occasional assistance or have more regular pet care needs, I am open to discussing a schedule that suits you best. Feel free to reach out, and we can work together to create a plan that ensures your dog receives the care and attention they deserve at times that are convenient for you. As a dog sitter, ensuring the safety, building trust, and creating a secure environment for the dogs under my care are my top priorities. Safety: I take all necessary precautions to keep the dogs safe during their time with me. This includes providing a secure and supervised space, using appropriate leashes and harnesses during walks, and making sure the surroundings are free from potential hazards. Trust: Building trust with both the dogs and their owners is essential. I approach each dog with patience, kindness, and respect, allowing them to feel comfortable and at ease in my presence. Regular communication with the owners helps build trust and reassures them that their pets are in good hands. Secure Environment: I create a nurturing and calming environment where dogs feel relaxed and cared for. Providing familiar toys, bedding, and routines can help ease any anxiety they may have while away from their owners. Consistency in daily activities and following specific care instructions contribute to a stable and secure setting. Furthermore, having a background in dog care and being up-to-date on pet safety best practices allows me to make well-informed decisions to maintain a secure environment for the dogs I look after. By prioritizing safety, trust, and creating a secure environment, I aim to provide both the dogs and their owners with peace of mind and a positive dog sitting experience.
“Samantha is the one of those people who all animals come too because they can feel her love. All of her pets are spoiled and get treated like they are her children. She truly cares for all animals and any pet would be so lucky to have a caregiver like her.”
