About: Former Great Dog Rescue New England foster parent. Big lover of dogs and friendly cats. Strong diversity and length of pet care experience. Growing up, I've had the following animals: three dogs (Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix, hound mix, golden retriever), an indoor/outdoor poly-dactyl barn cat (who lived 20+ yrs), hamsters, a gerbil, guinea pigs, kept chickens for 5 years, finches, a cockatiel, a lizard, baby-sat a ball python for a week. While I don't have formal training certifications/experience, I did successfully train my 9-month old Rotty/Shepherd puppy on the invisible fence we had when I was 10yrs old. I've house/pet sat on multiple occasions - it included taking care of a cat, a duck, some chickens, and of course dogs (one of which got sprayed by a skunk on day one and needed multiple baths!). Give me a try! I am very trustworthy. I am new to Rover, but very experienced with animals, especially dogs of all kinds and sizes. I think I could make fast friends with your pet! My daily routine would be according to your pet's routine. I live in an apartment that doesn't allow animals outside of a tank, so I can't host pets. At a client's home, I would follow whatever protocols/preferences they request in terms of safety. Always keep the animal on leash when outside and not in a fenced in enclosure. If the client requests the dog be crated at night, that is easily done.
“Adrienne is our pup's new best friend. She was always on time and went above and beyond what we asked her for. Truly a gem. So lucky to have her so close to us because we plan to have Adrienne visit more often!”
“Sarah was great! She was good with my dog, who always came back happily tired out. And she was super helpful to me, taking the job last minute when I was sick and adding additional days as needed.”
“Eric was attentive to our cats' individual needs. We apprentice his attention to detail. Additionally, he went above and beyond when a tree fell at our house and helped us by taking photos of the initial incident.”
“Highly recommend! Shelby was great, easy to work with, caring and loving with our dog Bella. We had no issues. We appreciate the good service we received. Thank you”
“Wendy was reliable and sweet with our cat, Coraline. She followed our directions and sent us pictures, and we never had to worry that coraline was well taken care of on our trip. Thank you, Wendy!”
“We are so grateful for Anahit's drop-in visits for our cat! After being in Anahit's care for a long weekend, she was calm, affectionate and purring. Typically, we are ignored, with rubs and head buts returning on HER schedule - maybe in a day.”
“Elizabeth is so wonderful with our puppy! My puppy had a couple of accidents in the beginning and Elizabeth was just so good about taking care of her. I know that my puppy is in safe hands.”
“Brianna was great! This was my first time leaving my cat alone for several days and she was the company he needed! She followed the directions with feedings, gave my cat the attention, and was very helpful when I thought my automatic litter stopped working. You can tell her love for animals and will absolutely take care of yours as if it was her own. Thank you, Brianna! I hope you can meet Mamba again!”
“Lucy's love for dogs is truly remarkable. She not only helped me raise my corgis but also recently took care of them while I was away for over a week. During my absence, Lucy provided impeccable care, ensuring my dogs were not just well-fed and exercised, but also showered with love and attention. Her updates and photos kept me at ease throughout my trip. What sets Lucy apart is her genuine connection with animals. Her own dog is a testament to her dedication, and her passion for dogs is evident in every interaction. I trust Lucy implicitly with my dogs, and I feel incredibly lucky to have her in my life. If you're looking for a responsible, caring, and passionate dog caregiver, Lucy is the perfect choice. Thank you, Lucy, for your invaluable assistance and love for my furry family members!”
Matt & Alyssa D.
“Matt was wonderful with our little mini daschund while I was away! She can be pretty skeptical of new people but I could tell by just the photos only a few check-ins in that she was super comfortable and happy with Matt. Definitely recommend!”
“Ally did a great job taking care of my two scaredy cats. When we returned home they both seemed content and relaxed when normally they are alittle spooked at first. I wanted to point out that both water dishes were full when we returned when others have left the water nearly empty on our return. That means Ally was rinsing and refilling daily. She took the time to brush them and she cleaned up a hair ball for us and even gave them some hairball medicine! She was also very quick to response to a question we had about our ac. We appreciated her check on it for us. I look forward to booking her again for other vacations.”
About: I’ve had pets since I was 10, cats and dogs. We had 3 adorable cats and 3 of the best dogs while I was growing up. I have a cat in my home, his name is Jack and is 15. He’s my best friend! I currently work full time. I am available most nights and weekends. My job can be flexible during the winter months so I could have additional availability to help care for your pet I live in an apartment with my cat so bring your pet to my home is difficult l. I would be happy to follow any rules you have for care in your home.
“Christina is a highly responsible, caring animal lover who would make a remarkably good sitter/walker. She adores her own pups and takes excellent care of them. No one would ever need worry about a dog she was caring for.”
