Priti was wonderful and we look forward to hiring her again soon. At the meet & greet, she asked all the right questions, was very attentive and in-tune with our pets needs. We have an older dog who is struggling with a few health issues, and Priti was the compassionate and caring sitter we were looking for. I'm looking forward to having Priti stay with our pet again soon!

10-Star Review! Alex was spectacular from beginning to end and took care of our 5 pets (3 cats, 2 dogs) for an entire weekend. Everyone was thrilled to have her there and we appreciated how easy Alex made the whole process for us and the pets!

I could not have asked for a better caregiver! Truly stellar with communication, details, caring for my house and for my pup. My neighbors even commented on wonderfully she was caring for my dog, and I know my pup loved her as well. We can’t wait to have Heather back!

Jess is AMAZING! My little guy got hurt just before we left the country. Despite his reluctance, she was great at getting him meds and nursing him through his injury. We got LOTS of updates with pictures, and never for one second wondered if our boys were in safe hands. She is a ROCKSTAR. The house was neat and tidy, and she is now our go-to sitter :) <3

This was our first time using Rover for house/cat sitting and we didn't know what to expect. Rebekah was wonderful! She was easy to reach, prompt, friendly, and exceeded our expectations in every way. She was even able to make friends with our kitty, who is usually afraid of everyone.

I highly recommend Kim for petsitting and look forward to re-scheduling her for future petsitting needs. It is refreshing to have found a pettsitter who is kind, caring, trustworthy, flexible, and professional; I am grateful for her help. Kim went above and beyond my expectations and took excellent care of my two fur babies and my house while I was out of town. She communicated daily, which I both appreciated and found reassuring.

Susan was great! I have an elderly anxious dog and she took great care of her while I was gone. She sent pictures and updates regularly. My dog was very happy and relaxed when we came home.

Dara housesat our two large dogs for a long evening while we went to a concert! The dogs immediately warmed up to her and we came back to two happy, resting dogs. Dara communicated so well with us from the planning stage all the way through to the end. I really appreciated how detail oriented she was when asking about routines, safety, and each dogs’ likes and dislikes. She also seemed genuinely excited to hang out with our dogs. She managed our dogs who both have some behaviours (one food guards and my foster is not good on a leash) beautifully. I will definitely book her again.

Stacey was absolutely wonderful with our fur baby. She sent us pictures and videos and let us know how things were going, which really put us at ease. We could tell she really cared for our baby and that means everything to us - we will definitely be booking her in the future!!

Robin is by far the best sitter I’ve ever worked with. She is incredibly detail oriented and followed my 4+ pages of instructions for my two cats, and went above and beyond to really bond with them. I got regular updates and never worried for a single second, I knew they were in the best of hands. Robin truly has a skill with and love for cats and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone needing care. I am the type to worry when I leave my cats, and Robin soothed any concern I had, and I had a worry free vacation like I had so needed. Robin truly cares for the cats and their owners alike. She went above and beyond to change their litter and cleaned my apartment at the end. It’s something I’d never ask, but when you come home from a long day of travel, that clean apartment is the best thing to come home to. Words cannot express enough just how wonderful she is and how good she is at pet sitting. I can tell my cats already miss her, and I’m so excited for us all for when she cares for them next- without a doubt she is our new regular sitter, we all love her so much!
