hawaii pet sitter

Aloha! We’re Brooke & Buddy – the couple behind Aloha Pet Sitters.

We’ve had the pleasure of caring for dozens of different pets across a range of ages, breeds, and needs. From kittens and puppies to older dogs and cats needing a daily pill. We’ve also cared for backyard chickens and other farm animals, including goats and donkeys.

Although we are happy to be Hawaii pet sitters now, we started out as traveling sitters which really grew our skillset and ability to adapt very quickly!

Read our reviews below for insights into what having us as your sitters will be like!

Client Testimonials

We highly recommend Buddy and Brooke of Aloha Pet Sitters. Personal, friendly and reliable are three words that come to mind. They took great care of our two cats and our home for nearly three weeks. Especially appreciated the daily notes and pictures of our fur babies. We will gladly seek them out again when headed off island.

Hawaii Kai: Three-Week Pet Sit for Two Cats

So we totally lucked out finding Brooke & Buddy of Aloha Pet Sitters when our normal boarding spot was filled up (after realizing too late that everybody would be traveling for spring break). Regardless, as luck would have it, we lived close enough by that they could fit us into their schedule and I’m SO happy they could! We have an old bulldog (Bentley) that has his own schedule & special needs and they never hesitated about being able to accommodate him; they even came before our trip to get acquainted with myself, Bentley, and our home. Also important to note, is that when letting “strangers” into your home and giving them a set of keys while you head out for a week can be a little unnerving, but when meeting them they totally put those worries to rest. They were so pleasant and definitely put my mind at ease from the time I opened the door…

Hawaii Kai: Repeat client of senior dog for multi-week pet sits.

Professional and caring pet sitters, Brooke and Buddy are wonderful! They go above and beyond to spend time giving love and attention, even getting down on the floor and playing. This is the second time we’ve had them watch our cats (3 weeks and 2) and truly our fur kids were never happier. We loved the daily diary with photos to show us what mischief they were getting into and it was so heartwarming to see how bonded they were to both B&B. We’re so grateful they were there for us, even on short notice, and we totally trust them with our pets and our house. Best experience and highly recommend Brooke and Buddy, owners of Aloha Pet Sitters!!!

Hawaii Kai: Repeat client with two sweet kitties!

After reading another satisfied customer’s recommendation on NextDoor, we called Brooke and Buddy to watch our 1 year old labradoodle. We’ve only ever boarded him before – he’s never been watched at home but after meeting Brooke and Buddy we felt comfortable that our puppy would be in good hands. They did a phenomenal job, checking in on him 3x a day and taking him on walks. They kept us updated with great detail on each check in, and included pictures. It was so nice to know he was ok and safe at home while we were away. We will not board him again, instead we’ll be using Aloha Pet Sitters. Thank you Brooke and Buddy!!

Hawaii Kai: Five-day pet sit for a sweet puppy!

Some of the sweetest people on the island, our pets were happy and our dog Halley actually didn’t care that we came home and our cats enjoyed their quality time with treats. We really appreciated the timely communication and the check in photos eased our minds. Above all, it made our home feel safe knowing there was traffic going in and out. We love Brooke and Buddy!! Will get them again guarantee!!

Honolulu: Weekend check-ins for one dog and two cats

We absolutely love Aloha Pet Sitters! The company owners are very experienced, kind, responsive, attentive, and prepared to offer your pet the best care possible. Brooke and Buddy made sure that our pup felt comfortable with them prior to our trip, and they also went over all of the important details with us to ensure we were both on the same page. Our pup also needed many extra things (e.g., medicine), and Brooke and Buddy managed all these needs flawlessly. I especially loved that during our trip, they created a Google Doc with updates we could check in on to see how our dog was doing. This was such a great system because you had the option to check it when you wanted throughout the trip versus being messaged when it might not be convenient. I would highly recommend this pet sitting service to any of my friends or family, and I plan to reach out to Aloha Pet Sitters to book all our future trips with them! Our dog can’t wait until his next “stay-cation” with Brooke and Buddy!

Downtown Honolulu: Five-Day Overnight Vacation Pet Sit for One Dog 

My partner and I were super nervous about leaving our 4-month old puppy Bokchoy to go on a two week trip to the mainland, but when Brooke and Buddy said they could watch him for us, we felt so much better!! They were amazing and Bokchoy loves them 😄 We loved that they sent us updates and pictures throughout our trip and were so quick to respond to anything that came up. We will definitely book them to watch our pups again!!


Hawaii Kai, Honolulu: Two-Week Sit for One (very good and super cute!!!) Puppy

Brooke and Buddy took great care of our dogs (and house, and chickens). We would welcome them back anytime.


Kailua, Hawaii: 10-Day House Sit for Two Dogs, Two Chickens

Meeting them for the first time, we knew immediately that they were caring, sincere and very friendly. While away they regularly texted us with updates and photos of our cat Mele’s well being. They welcomed us home with a clean and tidy home, and a very content cat.


Molokai, Hawaii: 14-Day Sit for One Cat

What a lovely openhearted young couple. Buddy with his compassionate empathetic way was the first male that Cinnamon Girl (donkey) allowed near her. This was such a big plus for us here. 


New Zealand: Weekend Sit for Four Donkeys, One Goat, Four Chickens, and a Dozen Sheep

I found Brooke and Buddy to be fantastic pet/house sitters. Very professional and accommodating to all my requests. Nothing was a problem for them. I totally trusted them with my beloved dog and home.


New Zealand: 7-Day Sit for One Dog

It was a pleasure to have Brook and Buddy guarding our three cats for 6 weeks in our apartment in Iceland. They took great care of our beloved kitties and had no problem with oral injection and pill giving to one of our Maine Coons every day. Although I think our kitties are glad that we are back home, I think they miss them already. Would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a pet & house sitter.


Iceland: 6-Week House Sit for Three Cats

Brooke and Buddy were excellent house sitters. They came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. Sandy really enjoyed having them here. There was no issues with communication and anyone would be lucky to have them.


Montenegro: 7-Day House Sit for One Dog

Brooke and Buddy are brilliant housesitters. We were so lucky to have them to look after our home and our 3 dogs and 7 cats. They are friendly and cheerful with a ‘can do’ attitude, and they are genuine animal lovers.


Greece: 7-Day Sit for Three Dogs, Seven Cats

They know how to take care of a home (inside and out) as they asked pertinent questions while we showed them around the property. We were more than comfortable to head out knowing that we would not have any worries while gone. We returned to an immaculate home with everything cleaned, washe,d and organized. They did a FANTASTIC job and we (and Emerson) hope to have them sit for us again.


Colorado: 6-Week Sit for One Cat

Brooke and Buddy did an excellent job watching Lincoln over the Christmas holiday. They were great with communicating before the sit and I appreciated that they came to Munich the day before the sit to ensure that they would be there when I needed to head to the airport. I would definitely recommend them as sitters and would be happy to have them back again in the future!


Germany: 6-Day Sit for One Puppy

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Brooke and her husband Buddy. They looked after our 2 dogs and house in Southern Spain whilst we took a break in Portugal. They looked after our dogs and home as if they were their own.


Spain: 14-Day Sit for Two Dogs

Brooke and Buddy were really excellent cat sitters. They looked after the cats very lovingly and the cats really responded to them. They sent photos during their stay which was really lovely for me so I could see that the cats were happy. They were very respectful of my home too and left it clean and tidy.


United Kingdom: 12-Day Sit for Two Cats

They cared for our home and pets as if they were their own. They handled 4 dogs and a cat with ease. Everything I asked of them was done with excellence and care. I rarely feel so at ease with leaving my pets. They couldn’t have done a better job!


Colorado: 5-Day Sit for Four Dogs, One Cat

They took excellent care of our Golden Retriever Coral and made sure she received her medication on time every day. The house looked as good or better than how we left it. Can’t recommend them highly enough.


Colorado: 9-Day Sit for One Dog
