HOW TO BEGIN
In order to provide the highest quality animal care and be available to our existing clients, we limit the number of clients we work with. If you are interested in a complimentary consultation to see if we meet your animal care needs, please contact us.
Catherine and Jonathan are fantastic dog sitters. We hired them to help take care of our two labs, Remi and Zoey, during our wedding. Remi especially is nervous around new people but Jonathan had her at ease immediately! Jonathan and Catherine took care of our girls better than we could have ever hoped. We could not recommend them more highly.

We can't thank you enough for the peace of mind you provide when we have to jet away for family care---we are able to then focus on those priorities and rest assured that Pete is about to enjoy how ever many days we are away with the most amazing attention to detail, pampering loving care that the two of you provide....no guilt leaving is what you provide.....we are SO VERY GRATEFUL

Where to start?! Jonathan and Catherine originally took care of my parents’ animals when required, meticulously following my mother’s instructions regarding food and walks. This is what you’d expect from great pet sitters but this is just where they started. As my parents’ health failed over the years, they’ve kept in communication with us (their children) about the animals and recommended ways to ease the burden of caring for pets (fencing the yard, changing food routines). They’ve stepped in at a moments notice during several health emergencies where we’ve needed urgent care for pets while my parents were hospitalized. When my mother became unable to care for her cats, they helped to rehome them and then even followed up once they’d been adopted to ensure that they were being well cared for in their new home. During this difficult situation, they spent time comforting my mother over the loss of her cats. Now that my mother has moved to assisted living (and brought the dog with her), they are helping to coordinate care for the dog in the facility. I honestly can’t say enough about the dedication, organization and compassion that Jonathan and Catherine have to not only the pets they care for, but for their owners too. I’d give them 20 stars if possible and am more than happy to give personal recommendations if requested!
