Service Description
Hi there,

My name is Caitlyn, I am 26 years old and from Vancouver BC, Canada. I'm on my second working holiday visa and have been pet and house sitting for over 2 years. I have lived on a farm taking care of 2 dogs, as well as the chooks, and sometimes cattle. I will treat your fur babies like my own! I enjoy taking care of your animals in the comfort of their own home while collecting your mail and taking care of your home. I have excellent references and many years of experience. I will also send you updates and will respond to any emails/sms within 24hrs.

Here is a link to a video of the last dog I took care of for 2 months and I sent it to the owner as an update while he was away:

Please feel free to ask me anything :)

Review And Testimonials
Christian S.
Caitlyn is a hardworking, honest, caring, and thoughtful individual. She helped with everything around the house, she even helped me looking after Nougat when I was not around. When I had to leave Australia for a business trip to North America in October of 2015 for 2 months, Caitlyn agreed to housesit and dog sit for me. She was the only person I felt comfortable with looking after Nougat as she had clearly demonstrated how passionately devoted she was when it came to any type of work. During my 6 week trip in June of 2017, Caitlyn looked after Nougat and everything was perfect. She constantly sent photos to let me know that Nougat was fine. During my entire trip I was confident that not only had I found a person who would look after Nougat, but also that she would look after him as if he belonged to her. Nougat absolutely loves Caitlyn.

"Charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent!" Is how our dog would review Caitlyn. But we would like to add that Caitlyn is our go to doggy sitter. Incredibly intuitive with the dogs, sweet and trustworthy. Please don't book her when we need her, or I will have to post a fake negative review.

Caitlyn housesat / dogsat our 4 month old puppy while we were on a 3 week business trip to Toronto. She was so caring to our pup, made sure she got her meds on time every day, and took special care to ensure she stuck to her special diet plan. We KNOW Caitlyn really cared about our dog because she periodically sent us videos of all the walks, play time, and training sessions (she taught Lady a couple tricks and helped with house training). Thanks, Caitlyn! You made us feel that our dog was so well taken care of and took away any anxiety we felt about leaving her for so long. Thank you, Caitlyn!
