 Competent Care for Your Home
& Loving Attention for Your Pets

While You're Away



What Home and Pet Owners Have Said . . .

"Merrit is a top choice in my book!  She stayed three weeks and during that time, she was not only AMAZING with our dog, she took absolute fabulous care of my house and garden!  WIth an extensive edible landscape, that is saying a lot about her care!  Our spoiled Bodie never even knew we were gone, and my neighbors loved her, too!  The best gift of her sitting for us was that we were able to travel worry free!  

Merrit sent us photos and texts to keep us updated while we were gone and then stocked essentials and made us fruit tarts for our return! She is truly the BEST!"

 ~ Vanda & Bryan B.  ( Bodie's parents)


" I can not say enough about what an awesome house and pet sitter Merrit is!  She took excellent care of our dog and two cats, and left the house neat and clean.  She was proactive and left me a text when she noticed that the new sod we had just had put in was starting to die back.  We were able to contact the person who did the work for us, and Merrit dealt with him to get the sprinkler problem fixed that same day.  You can have confidence that your furry friends will be in good hands, and your house will be well taken care of.  We will definitely be using Merrit again!"

~ Kate  Zepher Cove, Lake Tahoe, CA (Winston's mom)


"Merrit was amazing with my sweet fur buddies!  She was kind enough to meet up ahead of time via Zoom, to have a chance to "meet" Myles, Mattie, and Maci, observe the medicine process, and have a "tour" of the place!  I knew right away she would be perfect!  

While we were gone, I felt completely assured that my buddies were being well taken care of!  I got cute pictures and videos of the fun they were having.  I so appreciated Merrit's commitment to our animals and to our home!  I would highly recommend Merrit without any hesitation to care for your pets and home while you are away.  Your pets will feel like they are on vacation, too!"

~ Eve and Ken (Myles, Mattie, and Maci's parents)


"Merrit was a great house and pet sitter for our older dog.  She was friendly, kind, enthusiastic and very responsible.    She was also very affectionate with Jambo and took good care of her, following our instructions.


 Merrit was very organized when she came for her orientation to the house and asked great questions, showing us that she understood our large, luxury home well.  The house was in tip-top shape when we returned home.  She even left a bouquet of flowers and a lovely note about her stay here.  I will invite Merrit back enthusiastically!"

 ~ Mary and James K. (Jambo's parents)
