This was the first time we worked with Christine. She did an excellent job taking care of our cat George when we were out of town. He is an older cat that has to take medicine by mouth twice a day via syringe and Christine was able to easily handle that when she checked in on him when we were gone (amongst all the other caregivers duties), even though I don't believe she had given cats medicine like that before. When she stopped by a few days after we returned George instantly recognized her so you could tell he was well taken care of and gave her his 5 star review as well. I would recommend Christine for her pet sitting services.

Christine did a great job cat sitting. She was professional and detail oriented. She sent me photos every time she visited and made sure my cats had plenty of fresh water. I appreciated that she took the litter bag outside to the trash bin and even left a new toy for my cats! We will be hiring her again!

Christine was great! She was able to look after my cat on short notice and kept me updated with pictures while I was away. I definitely recommend her for your cat sitting needs and I will be using her services again over the holidays.

I just can't say enough about Darci's professionalism and genuine love of animals. She has done everything from socializing to training to boarding to loving our puppy like she is her own. She is highly dependable and always does exactly what she says will do. Since we are first time dog owners, finding someone that I could trust was the most important thing when looking for a trainer and pet sitter. I can completely trust Darci. It is more that just the fact that she without a doubt loves dogs, but she respects them, wants the best for them, and it shows in her work and interaction. Our dog could not love her more and it shows in how Maizy responds to her and is beyond excited to see her every time. And whenever we have a question, or see a behavior we aren't sure what to do with, Darci has a solution or suggestions. If you are looking for the best care available for your pet when you can't be with them, then you should choose Darci. You will be so glad you did!

Darci was wonderful and our family was lucky to have her house/pet sit. She left everything as it was and loved on our pets for us. She took pictures and videos and shared them with us upon our return (we didn't have service while we were away).

Darci offered realistic approaches to working with my dog. We both enjoy our walks more after utilizing the methods we learned from Darci.

I hired Debbie to take care of my 2 cats over Christmas, feed, water, litter box and playing. I could not have been happier with the job she did. I came home to 2 cats who didn't seem to miss me much at all!? This was my first time using Debbie as my pet sitter and she has moved into my first go-to position. I knew from the interview she was going to be good because my cat Simba had no fear of her from the start. Thank you Debbie for taking care of my cats like they were your own!

Debbie is a sweet, loving caregiver. She's been with our new puppy for a few days now...Lucy, our pup, really likes her and she even texts me with updates about her crate (wet or dry). I would nightly recommend Debbie for your pet care needs.

Rita clearly loves dogs and knows animal behavior. She worked wonders with our Rat Terrier (and us for that matter!) I had looked at some of the dog training classes in the area and none of the times worked for us. What's great about Rita is she's flexible and works within your schedule. Also, the training is one-on-one which is not the case with classes. She works specifically to the level and needs of your dog. After each class, she leaves you with very detailed instructions on what she just taught you, which is great because there was always something I forgot. She also makes herself available by text if you have any questions. Best of all, she makes it fun for all. I know I will return to her to brush up or take our training to the next level.

Rita made a big difference to my family by helping our beloved pet heal from the trauma he experienced as a puppy mill dog prior to me adopting him. Rita massaged the anxiety out of my precious little cairn terrier - Little Doodles wagged and wagged as soon as he knew he was getting to see Rita.

I have hired them to train my very over active, strong willed puppy and the work Rita has done is remarkable. The puppy and I have each learned many useful things.

Ali from At Home Pet Care came into our home twice a day to care for our dog and two cats. She had to give medicine to the dog, feed the animals, walk the dog and bring in the mail. She left notes every day, left the kitchen quite clean and our animals were in great shape when we returned. One of the cats is pretty skittish and previous times, we have heard that the pet sitter hasn't seen much of him. Ali was able to entice Bilbo out of hiding and even pet him - I was surprised and grateful that she took the time to work at that. We are thrilled with At Home Pet Care's service and recommend them highly!

We fell in love with Jessica. She is very professional, great value and fantastic work quality. She definitely​ went over and above. Not only did she take wonderful, loving care of our 161 lb English Mastiff and 135 lb Bullmastiff, she also tended to our Cat and Amazon parrot, not because she was hired to but just because she loves animals, and wanted to. Our dogs get very excited when they see her. It's fun to watch. This was the first time we've ever hired a Dog Walker and I was so worried. I don't even like to say Dog Walker because she's so much more. Jessica put our minds at ease as soon as she walked in our home and greeted our dogs. Mastiffs can be overwhelming but she wasn't taken aback one bit. I would hire Jessica at Peppy Paws Dog Walking LLC a thousand times over.

Jessica has taken care of my two dogs (German Shorthair Pointer and Goldendoodle) for over five years. She has done everything for me: Dog walking, let outs, feeding, sitting, medication...you name it. The dogs adore her and go absolutely nuts every time she comes over! I trust her implicitly with both my dogs and my home. Her communication and availability has been excellent. If you are looking for a person who will love you pet as much (or more) than you do....she is the perfect person for the job!

Taara did an excellent job with my long-haired chihuahua, Jax. We never used a pet sitter with him before and were quite worried he would not be very easy to watch. When we went to meet her, she was outside with her dogs. My dog is very vocal when he is scared and he did just that, but Taara just reached out, and scooped him up. She held him close and comforted him. At that moment I knew he would do fine with her. After dropping him off, she kept us informed with texts and pics of him throughout his stay. He actually made friends with an Aussie she was watching. She also had a spa day with a doggy massage and nail trim ( she asked if it was okay first). When we picked him up, he actually kissed her goodbye, on the nose, while I was holding him (that has never happened, he is very protective of us) Taara is a very caring and loving towards animals. She is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend her as a pet sitter and I definitely will use her again! 👍👍👍

Taara is a wonderful dog sitter and I highly recommend her to others. We have two Beagles, one is a senior and one is 8 months old. The young one had a blast playing with Taara's dog and the older one was also happy getting lots of attention while the youngsters played. I felt safe leaving our dogs with Taara. She spent a lot of time with them so they weren't too lonely for us. She is also responsible and has a lot of experience with dogs and taught our puppy some new skills. We received pictures and updates to let us know the dogs were enjoying themselves. Our sweet older boy received his meds and she also trimmed their nails for us.

Taara is a great home dog sitter! I was in a bind and out of town when I needed a dog sitter quick. She worked with me and I was able to drop my dog off within a few hours of connecting with her. She is very friendly and owns dogs of her own, so if your dog loves to play, this is a great fit! She will also send you pics of your pup while he/she is there if you would like.

I hired Heather to watch my cat for 2 weeks. She was very good with my baby! For much less than other pet sitting companies, I received a text every day when she started the visit, as well as a plethora of photos. She spoiled my little one with lots of love and attention, and I knew from the initial consult that my baby was in good hands. If I ever need a pet sitter again, I will definitely call Loli-Pup Pets!

Heather was so gentle & caring with my cat during her grooming. My cat is terrified of baths, so she is a challenging customer. Heather handled her so well, that I think my cat actually enjoyed the warm water massage experience! Very professional, clean & friendly. The wild cherry spa was amazing! Thank you!

Sarah loves animals and is very serious about their health and the care she provides. She has provided dog walking duties for our family for over 14 years, from when our Sammy was a young rescue dog (and she was just a youngster herself) until he was too old to go out. She was always careful about leashes, traffic, and other people and their dogs. She made sure Sammy had water and food when we were gone on extended trips. Sarah also spent time with Sammy even when she wasn't walking him; she wanted to make sure he knew she was friends with him (i.e., not just a job). Sarah has also been our go-to caregiver for our cat Penny for nearly 16 years. She was always diligent about making sure Penny had fresh food and water and that his cat box was cleaned every day. She spent time just cuddling with him and getting plenty of contented purring out of him. She has thoughtfully contacted us while we were on vacation with updates on Penny that she deemed were time sensitive due to concerns about his health. I have absolutely every confidence in Sarah that she will take the best care of any pet (not just dogs and cats) entrusted to her care. She makes sure she understands the specific needs of each pet before she takes on a pet care job.

I have known Sarah for 2 years and she has taken care of 2 of my dogs. Sarah is punctual and very responsible. She always calls to verify she is coming, arrives on time, and follows pet care directions exactly as instructed. Sarah has a unique understanding and sensitivity for each pet she cares for. Sarah absolutely loves all the creatures she cares for and is gentle and kind. Sarah is very trustworthy. She can accept a house key in an owners absence and you will have no worries about valuables left in the house in your absence. She will always come and take care of your pet as promised and is careful to lock up the house after she has cared for your pet. Sarah keeps detailed records of the pets care and can leave written reports if you need them. I highly recommend Sarah for any short term or long term care of your pets. She loves each pet she cares for as if they were her own.

I've had Sarah as my go-to pet sitter for about 3 years now. My household includes 2 terrier mixes, 3 cockatiels, a cat, an orange baboon tarantula, and an alpine newt. Sarah has always taken such great care of my animals and is incredibly knowledgeable about different species' needs. Our hyper terriers are always well-exercised and well-loved, which is really nice after getting back from a vacation. I have a lot of anxiety leaving my pets in someone else's care, but Sarah gave me so much peace of mind. She checked in everyday with us and sent us pictures with every visit, which helped me enjoy my time off and not spend it worrying about how my animals were doing. You can tell that she truly loves and really cares about the animals she looks after; her eyes just light up. If you hire Sarah, you can be sure that your pets are well-taken care of and well-loved.

Michelle has been there for our family since the day we met her over a year ago. Our family has since grown to 2 dogs and she has taken on the additional responsibility of a new puppy like a champ! She obviously loves dogs and they love her. She consistently sends us updates after each visit and we also enjoy the photos of our little "kiddos" that she sends. It's so nice to have someone we trust to take care of our dogs, as they are our family. Michelle not only ensures they are taken care of, she gives them love like they are family to her as well. We are lucky to have her!

I can highly recommend Michelle! We have used her services for pet and house sitting for our 12 year old shepherd mix and 10 year old St. Bernard ... to which both were rescues. Michelle has stayed at our house for as short as one overnight and as long as one week. She has administered meds and has been compliant when separate feedings were needed. Typically, she sends a picture every couple of days and we return with notes from each day's activities. She has done a great job for us and I would highly recommend her services.

My previous cat sitter was great with the pets but did not professionally manage her business. Also, each time she sat for my cats, she failed to do an easy task she promised to perform--check the side door for packages, use my security system code, wanted cash payment. These caused a lot of trouble for me. Michelle gets the job done right and is not just good with pets but cares about being a professional.

Renee is a very kind and loving person and adores animals, especially dogs. She has watched my 2 dogs a couple of times and they are very relaxed and happy there. She plays with them, watches what they eat, and comforts them when needed. I could tell they were happy because when I picked them up they started to snuggle with Renee and give her fur baby kisses. I totally trust that my dogs are very well taken care of with Renee.

Alex has taken care of my english mastiff mix many times. The dog adores him. ALex has experience with large breeds, so he is not intimidated by their rambunctiousness and has a gentle firmness that the dog responds to very well. Besides, Alex is great to work with on the people side as far as communication and professional attitude. i highly recommend Alex for dog walking and dog sitting jobs.

Hi, there! Animals are my passion and my career. I have my degree in animal science with specialization in nutrition, health, and animal behavior/training from the University of Minnesota. I have worked at a vet clinic for three years during college. I have experienced working at PetSmart for over a year as a groomer and in sales in guiding new pet parents along their exciting new journey. I also gained experience in caring for reptiles, avian animals, and small mammals for those clients looking for care for other pets at home. During my last two years in high school, I worked at a pet resort and excelled in daycare and boarding services. I just graduated from college and have a lot of energy and TLC to give to your pet, and I hope you consider me for your next pet sitter. Please feel free to text/call my cell, or contact me via my email as well; I will return your call/email very promptly. I am available overnights and have a very flexible schedule.

I would prefer to have your pet here while you are vacationing, unless you live 10 miles or less from my location. I have a 75' diameter small fence for dogs that are 15 lbs. or less. I also have small to large portable kennels. I ask that you please have all shots up to date along with the Bordetella vaccine.
