“Christopher was responsible for caring for my three cats when we went out-of-state. It was very stressful for me as we have a senior cat (16 years old) who is declawed from a previous owner and requires a lot of maintenance. Christopher cared for our senior cat masterfully as if he had done so the cat's whole life. Our cat was well feed in line with his needs, and the litter areas were kept very clean for the whole week we were gone. He also cared for and fed the other two cats without them getting too jealous of the senior (they are very temperamental and Christopher handled it very well). Our cats did not have any changes in behavior and seemed to enjoy Christopher's company as mush as they enjoy ours.”
“Angie watched our crew for 7 days when we went on a cruise. We have an energetic Labradoodle, and a stubborn Boston terror. Our sons Frenchie was also here so suffice to say she had her hands full! Angie was very attentive and made sure our Boston got his meds. She did a stay over at our house and the dogs and house were immaculate. All were happy and healthy. She is friendly and professional. You can tell she genuinely loves doggos. I would highly recommend her!”
“Rosa is so great with my dog! She's punctual, professional, and accommodating on the few occasions I've needed an extra visit or change in schedule. I'd trust her with any animal of mine. I really appreciate having her as my regular dog walker.”
“Adri loves taking our family dog on walks when she is home visiting; she genuinely enjoys going on walks outside and those walks are made even better with a furry companion. Her love for her own two cats (Ghosty and Bender) and for pets in general is very apparent. She is also known amongst her friends for approaching folks at breweries or events to ask to pet and give some love to the animals she sees while she’s out and about. On top of being caring, she is incredibly communicative, responsible, and reliable. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking care for their pets.”
About: I've been directly in routine pet care since childhood. I've essentially never been pet-free. We had frogs, a bearded dragon, salt- & fresh-water fish, and - of course - a number of cats and dogs throughout the years as well! My aunts, uncles, parents, grandparents (and so on) have all been very attentive and responsible to their respective critters over the years, so the first time I had the pleasure of starting my own little family, I was a dog step-dad for a few years. Even 4 years after our separation, he knew exactly who was at the door! I've never gone through the adoption process of my own volition because of the nature of my previous job, spending the last 10 years in the restaurant industry, which can naturally be unpredictable and require long hours with an unpredictable schedule, but the nature of that experience lends itself well to pet care. Learning to deal with rapidly changing situations translated into an ability to manage a stressful environment and turn the situation around as quickly (and safely) as possible. I do my due diligence and preparation as much as I can ahead of time, but I'm ready to change tactics as soon as necessary to ensure that you will leave happy as a customer. If there is anything that could be asked of me that im not capable of, that will be addressed on an as-needed basis; and knowing that I have people I can count on to give me advice gives me confidence and I hope it does for you as well! Thank you for your consideration. I'm currently waiting to start the spring term for college, as I recently enrolled, so until then I intend to make this as full-time as is necessary. I may have meetings or recording sessions to go to for the music business I'm growing, but the scheduling can be worked around and addressed as needed. We have a fenced in backyard with a large patch of turf-style grass for "doing the business", our 2 doggos are fed at fairly routine hours twice a day (early morning and mid-evening); they don't get walked as often or long as they used to because they're getting older. Bailey is 15 and blind and mostly deaf, and Gigi is 10 - both are Malteses. Poop is scooped every 2 to 3 days maximum. We have a diaper genie that we use for disposal. I have dealt with a wide spectrum of pet behaviors, but specifically for dogs I have experience with puppy behavior and dogs with some past trauma. I learned how to balance being firm, fair, and loving while keeping my emotions where they need to be to avoid creating additional behavioral issues. I also have dealt with dogs with declining/complete blindness and partial deafness separately and together. If there are any additional medical requirements, I have some experience in giving them prescription medication at vet direction. With cats, I've mostly dealt with rescues of varying ages, 2 of which we kittens when my old roommate found them. I also did live-in pet/house sitting back when I lived in Florida for a short time before I decided to cook. And, I'm very experienced in cleaning up various organic and inorganic messes. for what's it's worth, I'm still a certified food protection manager if safety/sanitation is ever a concern.
“Alex is easily the best pet sitter I’ve ever had. My dogs are quite a handful so we have been through a couple dog sitters in the past, but she is able to handle to handle them. It’s like she has a way with dogs. Plus she’s a medical student so you know she cares.”
“Terran has helped me dogsit a family of 5 dogs and she is so great with them!!! There’s a couple young and crazy personalities in that pack and she handles them with love and snuggles. Terran will definitely love on your pups and take amazing care of them! Highly recommend!!!!!”
“Mark was great! Always kept me updated and pictures took away stress of leaving my pup while I traveled! I would definitely recommend Mark for watching your pups!”
“Rhea is so sweet and an avid animal lover. She will make sure your pets are fed, bathed, and always happy. You won’t be disappointed if you have her as a pet sitter!”
“I would absolutely recommend Kim as responsible pet sitter. She has spent several occasions watching over our Welsh Springer Spaniel Annie while we've been out of town. Annie needs lots of love and attention and Kim was able to provide Annie just what she needed while we were away. Kim never hesitates in petting and snuggling with Annie, which is fantastic as this spaniel breed needs constant companionship with people. Kim is also a great communicator. She provides updates during her overnight stays with Annie which I always find welcome and reassuring. I would recommend Kim for any pet sitting needs.”
“She did an amazing job! She was very attentive to Stella my pup! I’ll definitely be booking her again!!”
“Isabella loves animals and she is trustworthy, responsible, and organized. She enjoys caring for all sizes of dogs, plus cats and pigs. She can even help out with small critters if you have them! I've seen her interact with dogs, cats, and pigs and I would trust her with any of them. She's a loving, kind person.”
“Chelsea was fabulous! We traveled here for 2 weeks and it was the first time we used Rover. Chelsea responded very quickly. She was very nice over text and in person. She spent a long time at the meet and greet being sure our dog was comfortable. She followed our instructions to the letter. It felt like I had a friend looking after her! I would definitely use Chelsea again!”
About: I am an Graphic Design student at ASU, and I have loved animals since I was a kid. I was formerly a Girl Scout and have volunteered at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, and Arizona Humane Society, I've cared for animals since I was eight, even with my girl scout troop. I help take care of my dog and cat. I am currently a full-time student and pet sit part-time. I go to class Mon, Tue, Wed, and Fri. However, I have Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons open and am willing to work weekends and holidays. I have a dog and a cat. My dog is timid, and my cat is amiable. My dog cannot handle other animals at my house so I will offer house sitting, drop-in visits, and dog walking. I have a fenced yard.
“Jessica has been a fantastic dog walking companion. She is patient, kind and has been working with small lapdogs to large dogs and has done a fantastic job with her own rescue dogs, from puppies to my elderly pup, has been great. Highly recommend.”
“Katie brought my dog outside during the day the last few weeks, she sent me picture and text updates after every walk. Katie was very reliable and I will definitely be using her again in the future! Highly recommend her for any pet needs!”
“Charlotte loves animals! She has watched my animals on several occasions through out the years. She always brings them treats and enjoys one on one time with them. As a mother she is very patient and works well in stressful situations. Char would make an excellent dog caregiver, and any fur baby that gets time with her will be to their benefit.”
“Janet was great with our pups and they loved their walks with her. She also kept us posted on how they were doing. We will definitely be repeat customers!”
