Staff Member Ayla Martin

While Opportunity Barks does not offer official pet-sitting services, one of our employees, Ayla, does offer pet-sitting independently. She is Pet First Aid and CPR certified, and has years of experience working with animals as well as pet-sitting. Get in touch with her to see if she is the right fit for you and your dog!

This website offers a variety of caregivers, for both pet-sitting and dog-walking services, for you to scroll through and decide on your best match. If you’re not comfortable having someone stay in your home while you’re gone, many pet-sitters offer the option of having your pet stay with them, instead. It’s a super easy-to-use tool and very helpful in finding local caregivers who fit your needs.
