About: Animals are my one greatest joy. I’ve been around animals my whole life, in the homes of friends, family, and clients. I’ve been taking care of dogs since I was eleven years old when I got my first official dog-walking gig, a beautiful Samoyed named Bear. I also walked and dogsat my grandmother’s cairn terrier, Snickers, who was a senior dog with health issues including diabetes, as well as her current dog, a Golden Retriever named Loki. I have also had multiple combined babysitting/petsitting jobs, with experience caring for multiple cats and a gorgeous pitbull named Athena along with several children, which demonstrates my ability to multitask! I’d love to meet you and your fluffy family members to establish a good sitter-client relationship with both you and your animals! I am currently on medical leave from college, so my schedule is wide open! Whether it’s a scheduled visit, overnight house sitting, or a same-day emergency, I’m your girl! I have my own car with insurance so transportation isn’t an issue. I have such a deep love for cats, dogs, and animals of all kind, and being around them brings me so much happiness. Your pets will be in loving hands!! I’d love to drop in and hang out with your pets, particularly cats and small/medium dogs! Whether emergent or scheduled, one time or regularly, I can keep them company, keep them from getting into things, make sure they have fresh food and water, and change cat litter/let dogs outside to use the bathroom! I have a (non-life-threatening) heart condition which limits my ability to walk long distances, so cats or small/medium dogs with a fenced in yard or little walking needs are my preference! I do have a lot of experience with golden retrievers (as can be seen in my photos) and I would love to do drop in visits and feedings, I just can’t take them on walks. I have my own form of transportation, a reliable 2018 Honda Accord, and a valid driver’s license from the state of New Hampshire. I can do-drop in services, emergency visits, and overnight house sitting as we become more acquainted!
“Brooke was really wonderful to have in our home for our Memorial Day weekend. Our dogs and kitty were well cared for and happy while we were away. The kids loved getting pictures of them! Brooke was reliable, and very trustworthy, taking the time to get to know our pet’s personalities and providing love and stability when we could not. Teddy is not an easy big boy and Brooke was able to help him with his anxiety while his people were gone; no small act for sure! We hope to book Brooke again in the future; don’t hesitate to book, Brooke is great!”
“Danielle did a great job. She was willing to come out the day before to meet the dogs a second time before sitting. She sent us photos regularly. We will definitely book her again.”
“Taylor is absolutely amazing with my 2 huskies, she has been walking them now for almost a year now she is very professional and extremely polite! She's a pleasure to work with”
“I've known Christian and his family now for about 11 years during which time they've always had their own dog and have done pet sitting for family and friends. He's a kind and gentle young man who would play and interact with the dogs as if they were his own.”
“Sheri is a wonderful dogsitter! She is very easy to communicate with, sent timely updates, and lots of photos! Our dog is recovering from surgery and she took great care of him - giving him the proper medications, carrying him up and down stairs, etc. I felt very comfortable knowing Teddy was in good hands. Teddy also felt very comfortable - he spent a good amount of time snuggled up with her on the couch getting lots of love and attention! We will definitely book Sheri again in the future.”
“Amanda watched my 9 year old American Bully for a long weekend while we were away. She was quick to respond to my initial inquiry, on time for scheduled visits and followed up with us before our trip. My dog was well taken care of and in need of some medication which Amanda had no problem administering. I highly recommend her services as she is dependable, responsible and responsive to your questions and keeps in touch while your traveling.”
“Klarysa is the most responsible person I have ever had care for my pets. She personally fed, walked in bathed my dog. She also went out of her way to pick up her medication and make sure she was safe at all times she was with me from the time that I adopted my dog to when she passed away she has been there for Luna and my family for almost a year and a half now she would be a great addition to rover”

“Can’t say enough good things about Melissa! I had zero concerns about the care of our fur babies while we were gone overnight, which allowed me to relax and have a great time! Someone else mentioned in their review that you know not the minute you meet her and they were 100% right. I knew immediately she was the perfect fit. She’s very detailed oriented, which with two senior dog, one who is blind, this is very important. She communicated frequently but no too much and the dogs settled in with her like they’d known her forever. So happy we found Melissa! Our girls deserve the best!”
“JR was great - we had a very good pre-meeting, she was very attentive (we have a new puppy so her attention and interest was important to us) and she sent lots of photos and videos, which we loved! She’s scheduled for two more days and we’re happy about that - I highly recommend her!”
