"Sara's dog and house care gave us peace-of-mind while we were on a two week trip. Before we left, she asked all the right questions to get to know our dog, his routine, and quirks. She knows dogs! She kept us informed while we were away (including sending daily photos). And our dog had a blast with her and was sad to see her go. With Sara you are confident you are leaving your critter and home in thoughtful, caring, and professional hands. Highly recommend!" - CHARLOTTE AND MIKE - ST. PAUL, MN

“Sara did a wonderful job taking care of our two elderly greyhounds and terrier. She also took care of our tropical fish and plants and we came home to very relaxed and happy pets along with a clean and tidy house. We couldn't have been happier. Sara kept us updated daily with messages, photos and videos of our dogs and fish which was very reassuring and entertaining. On top of this, she is a lovely person and we were delighted to have the chance to meet her. Our dogs absolutely loved her and we could see that they missed her when she left! We would thoroughly recommend her as a housesitter / petsitter.” - UNA - DUBLIN, IRELAND

"Sara is an amazing find! She takes care of Kiri, our somewhat neurotic Tibetan Terrier, each year while we travel overseas; we feel so relieved to have such a competent and caring person in charge. Sara is able to bring out and highlight the appealing qualities of our crazy dog. Sara sends regular photo/video/text updates that give us confidence that everything is under control. She managed Kiri’s canine quirks under challenging circumstances while we had construction going on in our home. Our building contractor even commented what a pleasure it was interacting with Sara! We would gladly have Sara as our dogsitter/housesitter any time, and recommend her without reservation." - ELLEN - EDINA, MN

"Sara is our dream dog and house sitter! Not only is she super knowledgeable about sighthounds and patient and loving with our crazy whippets, but her thoughtfulness beyond exceeded our expectations — from assuaging a nervous dog mom with multiple updates daily (photos, videos, and Boomerangs!), to expertly handling a first aid situation, to making our reentry to home life after a hectic week of travel as easy as possible, washing our sheets and towels and making sure the house was even tidier than we’d left it. I almost don’t want to write this review because I want Sara to be available every time we have to leave town without our pups. Belly Rub Collective is summer camp for our crew, and they love (and can’t wait for more time with) their 'Auntie Sara.'" - MELISSA - AUSTIN, TX

“Sara has our highest recommendation when it comes to caring for our “fur family” and watching our home in our absence. We recently moved back home to Texas and travel for work. It was our highest priority to find the “right caretaker” in order to have peace of mind that our two year old greyhound Zoe, our 15 year old tabby cat Missy, and home are well cared for when traveling. She continually demonstrates compassion and love for our animals and has quickly become a dear friend to our family. She is organized, reliable, and professional. We recommend her without hesitation!” - DANA AND TERRY - AUSTIN, TX

“My husband and I were gone for over a week and our dogs could NOT have been in BETTER hands! We received constant pictures, videos and updates. This service deserves 10 STARS!! We felt completely at ease and we will be using Sara EVERY TIME we leave from now on!” - MARGOT - AUSTIN, TX

THOR + HALO

“I am grateful for the care my home and Basenjis, Halo and Thor, received from Sara. She was very attentive to my dogs. While I was gone, Halo's skin allergies worsened requiring two oatmeal shampoo baths. Sara did not hesitate to help Halo! Both dogs received lots of personal attention. I was pleased and surprised to find the bedding and towels Sara used all washed and folded when I came home. Sara is very personable, while attentive to the details of taking care of my two aging dogs, including a somewhat complicated medicine schedule. I highly recommend Sara.” - MARTY - AUSTIN, TX

LLOYD

“Sara is a wonderful dog and house sitter! She was thorough in our meet-and-greet, asking great questions about our house and Lloyd which made us feel so comfortable. During her stay with Lloyd, she send us regular pictures and updates and loved him as if he were her own! We appreciated her flexibility on the last day as she needed to stay a bit longer than originally planned. We would highly recommend Sara!” - LISA - AUSTIN, TX

"There’s no one I trust more with my dogs than Sara. I can’t stand the idea of boarding them anywhere, so having someone who’s trustworthy and dependable and can stay with them at home is the perfect solution. They love her and she loves them, and I can travel without worrying about them because I know they’re in such good hands. She gives them two walks a day, grooms them and spends lots of time with them, and makes sure that all of their needs are taken care of. She even fed my neighbor’s outdoor cat the last time she stayed to watch my guys when my neighbor was out of town. You really couldn’t find a better choice than Sara to pet sit your dogs." - CHIP - AUSTIN, TX

"Sara is amazing. She knew all the right questions to ask to get to know our bulldog. He has some special needs from a spinal issue and she was well prepared to take care of him. We get frequent updates and pictures along the way which make us so much more comfortable leaving our family member behind. Thanks Sara!" - MATT - MINNEAPOLIS, MN

"It was so great to know that my two greyhounds were being looked after by someone as meticulous and caring as Sara! While I was out of town on a family emergency, I knew that Reagan and Angelo were getting all their needs met above and beyond by someone who cares about them as much as I do. That peace of mind meant the world to me! I'll definitely be booking Sara in the future when I leave town." - CATELYN - AUSTIN, TX

WINSTON AKA "STONY" (RIP)

"Our golden retriever is a 'shy guy' and a little anxious about us leaving him.  But with Sara he seemed to be a happy camper from the get-go. Sara took our “Winston”  for lots of walks and did a great job of conforming with his normal schedule of feeding, play time, snacks, etc. This was a big help as far as lessening his anxiety about us being gone.   We were very appreciative of her efforts. She was also so thoughtful and sent us daily texts with photos of our dog.   It was fun to see those updates and know he was doing well. Sara has experience with lots of different breeds of dogs (and works with a canine rescue organization.) In general, she just has a big heart for our canine buddies!    Our dog sure seemed to sense her comfort with him which made HIM feel very comfortable with HER. Sara is quite trustworthy and responsible so we feel totally safe having her live in our home while she is caring for our dog. We highly recommend her. She’s a joy to work with, and we think your dog will like her, too!" - MARY AND BRECK - ST. PAUL, MN

“Sara came highly recommended as a pet sitter so we asked her to take care of our dog for 8 days while we attended our son’s wedding. It was one of the best decisions we ever made! She met our dog beforehand and came prepared with a list of questions. At that moment I knew we had the right person. Our 10 year old beagle isn’t in the best of health and required medication on a daily basis. She was so kind to send us pictures everyday to put our mind at ease. Sara is a professional who truly loves each pet she cares for!” - SHERRELL - AUSTIN, TX

MOWGLI

“Sara was absolutely wonderful. In addition to being a caring, prepared, thoughtful sitter for our little pup, she is a truly genuine, great person. We felt secure leaving our dog in her care. We also really liked doing the meet and greet ahead of time- it demonstrated how thorough she was about trying to do the best job possible. Mowgli loved her from the second he met her. She sent cute pictures to let us know he was doing well. I will continue to use Sara-she's the best!” - DARRAH - MINNEAPOLIS, MN

"I couldn't have asked for a more professional and conscientious sitter than Sara whose broad experience as a house/pet sitter was immediately apparent prior to the trip - and repeatedly demonstrated during the trip. Communication was outstanding; no detail (large or small) was overlooked; the home was impeccable when I returned; and it was clear that Sara was very fond of my pooch. Big thumbs up and I'm more than happy to recommend Sara to other homeowners/pet parents!" - TIM - AUSTIN, TX

"Sara has watched our beloved kitty Mooshu many times while we were away. She always provides daily updates and pictures and obviously spends a lot of time really playing with and petting her, which we greatly appreciate as she gets very anxious when we leave. Sara is responsible, very communicative, and always leaves our home just as tidy as she found it. I highly recommend her!" - ROMY - AUSTIN, TX
