Linda is awesome! She was very helpful in explaining how Rover works, since this was my first time using it. She made sure we had given all the information that she would need ahead of time, and she also communicated detailed updates about the well-being of our fur baby. 5/5 recommend!

Stephen’s the best! He’s taken care of my 75lb mutt Sadie on multiple occasions when I’ve had to be out of town for 5+ days. I’m VERY picky when it comes to my dog and I’ve never taken her to a kennel before. With Stephen, I never had to! He’s responsible, communicative, followed all of my instructions to a T, and my Sadie girl just loved him. Stephen took time to learn all of her daily routines, commands, and manners, so when I got home there wasn’t any disconnect or period of me having to “refresh” her training. I know this may also sound fake, but truly, even my neighbors told me how great Stephen was with her while I was away; they saw him playing with her out in the yard and going for walks all the time. Even better, Stephen’s a marathoner so my energetic dog got plenty of walks and jogs around our neighborhood — he didn’t even skimp on the dreary winter days! I trust him 100% and couldn’t give a better recommendation for a walker or pet sitter. You know you’ve found a good one when they send you pictures of your pet splayed out on the floor all tuckered out and happy, tongue dangling out of their mouth. TLDR; You won’t regret hiring Stephen — he will treat your pet like his own and you’ll actually be able to enjoy your vacation worry-free!

Allie was SO good with our fur babies! She was so sweet to message us pictures and updates while we were away. Getting little check in updates made all the difference. I know our two labs loved her, because they were sleepy when we got home, which means she did a good job wearing them out playing fetch (their favorite thing to do!). We will most definitely be using her again during our next out of town travels. 12/10 would recommend her!

Jacqueline has been my pet sitter since 2016. I have 5 small dogs and she always takes the upmost care of them and I trust her totally around my house. I had surgery last summer and was in rehab for a month and she arranged her schedule so that she could be with my dogs. She took them to the groomer and vets. Never complained about anything I asked her and always was polite. She has a great love for all animals and will do whatever is necessary to make the owner and pet comfortable.

About: Hi everyone! My name is Madison, and I am a recent UGA grad (go dawgs!) taking some time off from school before applying to graduate school. In the meantime, I would love the opportunity to spend my newfound free time loving on your pets! As a cat mom myself (check my profile for pictures of Mitzi, I may be biased, but she’s adorable!), I understand how stressful it can be to find a petsitter that you trust and feel comfortable with. I hope that I can be that person for your family! Before booking any services, I am more than willing to schedule a time to meet you and your pet(s) so we can see if we’re a good match! 😁 As I mentioned earlier in my profile, I am a recent college grad taking some time off from school before applying to grad school - so my schedule is wide open! I will absolutely follow any guidelines that you follow with your animals - if they aren’t allowed on the couch, I won’t break that rule just because you’re there, etc. - it is your home and your pet, I am here to respect that!

Madison is the best dog sitter/ dog best friend I could ask for! She has watched my two senior dogs as well as my energetic puppy and handled them all with enthusiasm. My senior border collie has a multitude of health problems including doggie dementia, but he was always happy to see Madison :) I would trust Madison with any dog, cat, bird, snake etc. and couldn’t recommend her enough.

The best testimonial I can give to Bennett is the story of Claire. Claire was an elderly dog that Bennett had willingly agreed to watch for a week. What he didn't know was that, due to age, Claire's bowel control had begun to decline. He spent the week cleaning floors, but he never left any evidence of a mess and he continued to care for Claire kindly for the duration of their time together. He showed up undaunted and, despite the challenge, cared for Claire each day. He's responsible, a dedicated worker, and a remarkably kind person. I'd trust him watch my dog, my house, and, when I have them, my kids too.

About: I have experience working with obese, deaf, young, old, high energy, working, and rescue dogs. I was raised with basically every pet under the sun, and I worked on a ranch in Jacksonville FL for years. On the ranch I was responsible for a pack of 4 purebred chocolate Dobermans, 1 small mutt, and a couple horses. Now after moving to Athens for UGA’s Vet Med program, I have 3 cats with my girlfriend and help my mom with her special needs Spaniel. I go to classes on the weekdays but Rover is my main source of income. This ensures that I can give your special little guy a girl as much time as they need. I will walk in and greet your pet however they prefer. Then I will either feed them, water them, or walk them to your specifications. Afterwards, with your permission, I can play with them if we have time or clean up any messes they might’ve made. Of COURSE I will send you pics of how much fun they’re having while I’m there!

Racheida is a gem of a pet caregiver! I have known her for over 8 years, and seen the love and affection as well as intentional care she gives her own dog as well as those she pet sits. I can always trust her with my own doggo - she is reliable, always responsive, and also clicks the best doggo pictures. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new friend (and sitter) for their fur-babies!
