Amy is fabulous - she's been walking Finn since he was six months old. He was shy and scared of his own shadow. He's a happy and more socially comfortable dog now. She's wonderful with him - never have we had a problem in our three years together. Love her and trust her completely.

Nancy did a great job taking care of my kitties. She spent time in my home each day keeping them company, and even had to give one of my cat's medication. I would highly recommend contacting Nancy for all your pet sitting needs!

Nobody loves your pet like you do, with the possible exception of Juli Sands. A couple of years ago I was desperate for someone to stay with my dog, Cody. I had to go out of town, and I’ve tried both kennels as well as friends’ houses in the past. Cody was always nervous and cried almost constantly. He’s comfortable at home, only. Cody was a stray and has some anxiety, so my goal was to find someone who could stay with him. Thankfully, I found Juli. I couldn’t have asked for a more caring, loving individual to take care of “my boy”. Juli has stayed with Cody a number of times now, and each time she has gone above and beyond my expectations. She is great with Cody and he’s happy to see her every time. When I have to be gone I know that I can always count on Juli to take good care of Cody. I have no worries being away!

While training (Private Lessons, Board & Train, Day Training) is my main service offered, I also offer Dog Walking and Pet Sitting.

I am a fun-loving, professional dog trainer with a passion for all things dog; I am bonded & insured, trained in Pet First Aid & CPR, and I attend seminars and workshops regularly to stay up to speed on the latest and greatest & tried and true in the pet care industry. I pride myself on providing unique care tailored to your dog.

Kristine took care of our German Shepard, Dio, for an extended period over the holidays. Kristine took care of Dio as if she was her own. Daily walks and trips to the dog park were just some of the ways Kristine ensured our dog stayed healthy and happy. Kristine was professional but also warm and easy to talk to and it made the tough part of leaving a loved pet behind so much easier. We will definitely call on Kristine for any future pet sitting needs and we highly recommend her to anyone seeking a dependable and skilled caregiver.

I am looking for long-term clients to develop great relationships. This begins with with daily reports, help in training, facilitation for boarding and schedules, focus on high need areas and pure fun with diligence! And of course, lots of special attention to earn that bond with your furry buddy. I work to gain the trust required for peace of mind for pet and owner and an old school style "good will" just like my father taught me. I've been in positons with my own need for care and the experience has been less than desirable.. I finally have flexible hours to do something to balance business and heart. I am an ex-professional athlete (read: I can handle your 80 pounder) and have been an athletic trainer in my personal time ever since. I currently implement benefits and educate persons in finance, small business owners and CPA's to better understand benefits, tax shelters, IRS codes, and on and on. I live to help protect hard working citizens and to better our community. That is my job. Both of these are my passion. I will walk, talk and beautify your special one's heart to the max. "A tired puppy is a happy puppy". Katie
