Pet & Poet - Expert Pet Sitting


My name is Ben Bernthal, and I am an experienced pet sitter offering loving, top quality care to your best friend. When I’m not pet sitting, you can find me set up with a typewriter, writing poems for strangers I meet. (strangerspoems.com) Lately, I’ve begun writing poems about the pets I sit, and will include a poem for your pets as a thank you gift for booking with me.

I have 42 gleaming 5 star reviews on Rover, the petsitting app. I’ll include screenshots of some of the reviews in the photos section. For more reviews, check out my Rover profile: https://www.rover.com/sit/benjab14972

**I am currently living in San Francisco, but I plan to return to Hawaii in August to work on my book. I am pleased to offer top quality pet care at deeply discounted rates for the right fit--multiple-week stays only.**

I'm accustomed to providing medicine and love to animals, and I'm used to providing walks and care at all stages of a pup's life. I'm also well-versed in cat care.

I am an artist and an English teacher who has also been pet sitting professionally since 2018. I am responsible, loving, and reliable. As I make my own schedule, I can usually be quite flexible in adapting to your pet’s needs. I am fairly active and love inviting dogs along for outdoor excursions.

When providing pet care and house sitting in your home, I do my best to keep up your dog’s routine and make sure they are well-exercised and get plenty of affection. Respecting your home is a top priority, and I always leave it clean and tidy for your return.

I'm happy to provide you with references. I have several clients who I know would be happy to vouch for me.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Ben Bernthal
