Marissa dog sat Marley at our house for a long weekend and was fantastic! She is great with dogs! She is very reliable and attentive and picked up easily on our dog's preferences. We will definitely hire Marissa again.

Kirby T.

5.0

Kirby was all around awesome! She was on-time and very easy to communicate with before our dog-sitting session, which really put me at ease. My dog took a liking to her quickly and when I picked him up later that day, I could tell he was in great spirits. I highly recommend Kirby.

Priyam J.

5.0

I hired Priyam to watch my puppy while I was on a trip. Priyam kept in touch with me during my trip, she took him on his 4 walks a day, fed him two times, and sent me pictures of their play time. I could also watch them on the cams. My pup is a little angel and Priyam was a great guardian!

Lisa watches my cat while I am out of town and does an amazing job. She is flexible, punctual, and gives me updates which I love. Depending on how long my travel takes, Lisa is open to stopping by my place or taking my cat into her home. Highly recommend.
