Piper is easy to work with and a real pro with dogs. Hire her.
Repeat customer. Piper was great as usual. We felt very comfortable leaving our extremely senior dog in her car.
Piper was AMAZING! She sent me photos and gave me updates of how Orlando was doing. Even though he was just with her for one night :) When I came to pick him up, she had made him a little t-shirt!! I would definitely use her again
We left our fur baby (also named Piper, LOL!) for the first time just 2 days after she had a surgery on her foot. We were already nervous about leaving her for the first time, but it was even more stressful knowing that she had special care needs bc of her stitches & her cone head (haha!). Piper came over to meet us and we knew that we were leaving our Piper in good hands with human Piper. It was clear she was very knowledgeable and comfortable with dogs, behavior, training and obviously medical needs. She text us photos and updates regularly, which put as at ease and let us know The Pipers were having fun :) We feel so lucky to have found her!

Piper was great! Our dogs seemed super relaxed and happy when we returned home and she kept us up-to-date with their activities while we were away. Thanks Piper!
Piper did a fantastic job caring for our three dogs, including a very senior 17-year-old and a younger dog with a terminal illness. Not only were the dogs happy and healthy when we got home, but our house was actually cleaner than when we left. Piper was great with keeping in touch with messages and photos of our pack. We have found our sitter. Highly recommend.

Piper is the best pet sitter ever! So sweet & reliable. One of our dogs is a crazyhead and she totally loved Piper from the first time she met her. She's a real professional and I fully trusted her in my home for a few days watching my babies. Highly recommend her! :)

Piper was awesome and took really great care of our cats. She sent great photo updates as well during our trip. Piper went above and beyond to make sure our cats were happy and didn't feel abandoned. We highly recommend Piper to anyone looking for a great pet sitter!

Oliver had stayed with Piper countless times. She is wonderful and makes me feel OK about leaving him for days at a time for work. We love her and Simon.
As always, Piper does a great job with the pups and always keeps us updated. I've booked with her numerous times and can always count on her! Thanks Piper!

Piper was amazing, very attentive, and responded to every special need we had. She has a great energy that attracted our cats to her. She was respectful of our home and made sure our kittens were very happy and comfortable. She sent us photo updates of her playing with our cats. We would recommend Piper in a heartbeat! We couldn't have been happier.

Piper was awesome! She was easy to get in touch with, extremely knowledgeable and very professional. Plus our pups love her! We have two older Boxers that require daily pills, can get anxious being away from us and aren't dog friendly, but Piper took all of their quirks in stride.

She sent us pictures of the dogs every day that we were on vacation, which was so fun! It was such a weight off of our shoulders to know that our dogs were in the most caring and capable hands while we were away.

We will definitely request Piper again for any other vacations or pet sitting needs and would 100% recommend her to anyone else looking for an awesome pet sitter.

As all her other reviews state, Piper is absolutely amazing! I had never used DogVacay before but needed someone to watch my very sensitive/nervous dog for 8 days. After our meet-n-greet with Piper, Fillie and I liked her instantly; she has a very calm and grounded energy. As my date of departure grew closer, Piper offered the option of staying at my apartment with Fillie instead of Fillie staying with her at hers. We both agreed that that would be the best option for Fillie but I was a little nervous about someone staying at my place who I didn't know super well. Piper provided me with references to ease my mind and they all raved about her, so I decided to give it a shot. On the day of departure, Piper showed up on time and distracted Fillie with treats and toys while I ran around getting ready to leave. She sent pictures and texts about Fillie every day that I was gone and was readily available whenever I had questions. She also helped with desensitizing Fillie to other dogs and sent pics of Fillie playing/walking with other dogs she works with. Because I asked for close to 24/7 supervision due to Fillie's anxiety, Piper told me that at times she would be enlisting the help of her boyfriend, Simon, who is also calm, polite, and amazing with dogs. She even brought him by my place before I left, so Fillie and I could meet him. When I returned home, Fillie was happy and relaxed, and my place was clean and exactly as I had left it; Piper even offered to wash the linens she'd used while she was staying over. I will 100% be using Piper again in the future! I have absolutely no complaints/critiques - she is amazing and I trust her completely! Anyone would be lucky to have her as a host!

Piper was great. We met up the night before so she could meet the dogs which went very well. The following day she picked them up and continued to keep us updated with photos of them throughout the weekend. She was kind enough to drop the dogs off for us as well. She did a great job, they seemed happy and were dead tired after she dropped them off. Very professional and highly recommended. Thank you Piper!

Piper and Simon did an amazing job with Oliver. He came home tired and happy. I also hired Piper to spend some time training Oliver while he was with her. After a week with her and a few training sessions each day and there was a very noticeable and positive difference when I returned from my trip. We would love to have her host him again.

Once again Piper took excellent care of my pup! With daily updates I never have to worry. We'll definitely be using her again!
Piper was great! She was easy to communicate with (fast response time) and gave us a great rate for babysitting our puppy while we were at Disneyland. She picked Minnie up, walked her, played with her, and then returned her to us when we got back to the apartment. Minnie was happy and even got to socialize with other dogs while Piper sat her. We will definitely use her again when we are visiting LA.

Piper was able to accommodate my last minute daycare reservation and was flexible with the drop off / pick up times. She's also sent me photos of my pups throughout the day. Thanks, Piper. :)
Piper was great! I booked her literally last minute and she picked up my pup, took him to her house, and watched him. My dog is very skittish and when she came to pick him up he took an immediate liking to her because she knew, like true dog people, that if you don't approach nervous dogs, they will come to you. I would recommend Piper to anyone, and will definitely be using her again!

Piper was awesome! So kind and attentive to my pups particular needs. She sent picture updates during our trip away, and when we picked up Moxie I think she was as relaxed as I was after my weekend at the spa. I would absolutely use her again! Thank you!!
