“This is my second time using Coretta to watch my pets and she was just as amazing as the first. Her updates are so thorough, thoughtful, and sweet and can tell she genuinely enjoys caring for my animals.”
“Best dog sitter I ever had. She’s reliable and so caring. My dog was always excited when she came to visit and take care of him”
“Shiri is a wonderful care taker for my dog! My dog is an old and very particular dog who doesn’t do well with a lot of people but he loves Shiri! Due to my dog’s age he also has specific needs and instructions in which Shiri is sure to complete with each visit. She is also reliable and never misses an appointment that we schedule together. Thank you Shiri for caring for my beloved French Fry as if he was your own!”
“Alexis is a wonderful pet sitter. She has taken care of my dog Dike many times along side other dogs as well. She's very reliable, and communicates very well. I've seen how well she treats animals of all ages and tends to their need with care from disabled to high energy. They're always happy to be with her.”
Emma & Emily F.
“Emma and Emily were delightful house/pet sitters for our 10 yr.old pup Scooter and 10 yr. old parrot Rainy. Both animals quickly accepted their loving conversation and compassionate handling of each pets personalities. They were respectful of both pets different life/house rhythms and fell right in sync staying in our home. I truly recommend them highly.”
“I haven’t used Rover but I know Emma through work and she’s watched our dog multiple times. Emma and our dog are best friends, she always gets excited when we’re pulling up to Auntie Emma’s house😂 Anyone’s dog will be well cared for and beyond happy staying with Emma.”
“She is so good with animals, especially my dog. When the two of them are in the room together, I’ll leave and know my dog is being well taken care of. She truly is the best person to watch my dog.”
About: I am a college grad and former dog owner with previous experience working as a dog sitter since high school. I love pets immensely, and am so excited to meet yours! Every dog I get to greet is a gift, and I treat them as such. Through my own experience as a dog owner, alongside my diverse experience with other dogs, I have learned a lot that I get to bring to these new situations. I know how vital calmness can be, and keep myself patient. I know every dog is different, so please share everything you can about your animal and all their quirks! Getting to interact with animals is so much fun and so fulfilling, I wish to spend more of my time doing it when I can. I currently work from home, so my schedule is incredibly flexible! I'm available for walks throughout the week and can stay with your fur baby as need be. I like to keep the care of your pet as close as possible to their normal routine, so please keep that information clearly written out if possible, or we can write it out together!
“LUPE IS AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things here. Lupe was so responsive, thoughtful—amazing catographer and sent pics during each visit. I never felt worried about Randy while Lupe was watching him. She even took out my garbage and brought in my mail! I will definitely contact Lupe again for another drop-in.”
About: I really enjoy getting to know the dogs, cuddling, and playing with them. I am okay with cleaning up after dogs, because I have been walking my own dogs for years. I have fostered and owned dogs and cats of all sizes, so no size is too big or small. If there is a yard, I would love to play with the dogs the entire time that I am watching them, if not I am willing to walk them to a park to let them get their exercise, and have time to socialize. I am open to working with schedules, and if possible, doing last minute bookings. Communication is key with me, so as long as we are both on the same page, I am here for your dog! I am working full time, but I am always free to walk dogs before work, after work, or on the weekends. I am also more than happy to watch cats while you are on vacation. I currently have 2 dogs and 2 cats, so you can decide if you would prefer the dog to socialize, or for me to do a stay at your home! I have an extra crate if crating is necessary, but I usually leave dogs out so they can roam explore and let me know when they would like to play. Even if I am busy, I will always make sure to pause and give your furr baby a play break. I honestly believe, dogs know what they need, and extra cuddles never hurt. With that, I always try to keep an eye out for cues about the bathroom, water, or food, and also give them lots of love.
“Talk about a dogs best friend! My Phoenix is always so excited when she knows Susan is coming to walk her. I’ll tell Phoenix the day before “Susan is coming tomorrow Phoenix” and she’ll perk her ears, wag her tail and get so excited. Susan is incredible to Phoenix and to me! Always willing to change the schedule on a whim because of my crazy hours, and always willing to help Phoenix feel better when she has a belly ache. We are so blessed to have come across Susan! She’s literally the best!”
About: I’ve taken care of various kind of dogs since I was a little. I’ve taken care of senior dogs, including change diaper for a senior dog that couldn’t walk, massage their backs and give them sweet cuddles and kisses and appropriate treats to comfort them. I’ve also trained puppies for orders like sit, stay, down and jump. In addition to puppy training, I was able to potty train them as well. I’m currently a college student in city colleges of Chicago. I took all my courses online so that I stay home most of the time. I have 3 friendly dogs to keep your baby dog a company. If your dog prefer to be alone, I can separate in a separate floor level.
“I have a small mixed breed dog and she loves Taylor. Taylor plays unlimited amounts of fetch with her and at the end of the day she is exhausted. My dog’s tail wags 50 mph when she sees Taylor.”
“Hilary is incredibly reliable and responsive. She has done an amazing job taking care of my cat on multiple occasions, going above and beyond to make herself available at short notice and make sure that my cat got lots of attention (she is very needy) and lots of brushing (she is very furry). I recommend Hilary very highly.”
About: For dog walking I have walked 2 dogs at once before. I really like getting outside with any pets and letting them enjoy the fresh air. I always carry my own doggy bags just in case. For House sitting I've sat houses before overnight for family members and it was a great experience. I can clean parts of the house if needed and straighten things up. If wanted I can also bathe the animals. I am also willing to take special requests. I believe what sets me apart from other sitters and walkers is that I am more flexible and easygoing. I don't mind rescheduling things and moving things around, I understand that things come up and things happen. What also sets me apart is my drive and personal care for animals I believe animals should be cared for as if they were family and your pets will be treated as if they were my own. Rover is my main job so I have all the time in the world to give to your animals and I have no children or any of my own personal pets so it would just be me and your lovely pet. I have a few parks near my home and a dog park not too far as well so lots of space to get a good exercise in and maybe other dogs to play with. My home is 100% dog friendly and your dog will have me as the best play mate all the time. Any accommodations your pet may need just let me know and I’ll be happy to oblige.
“My second time booking Pantira and she's wonderful! <3 My cat doesn't come out for many people but she does for Pantira.”
“Hey, my name is Aaron. I’ve known Drew for a few years now. I have a black lab with slight social anxiety and all the times Drew has been around my pet and even time when I’ve trusted him to watch her while I’m out of town he’s been nothing but nice to her. He’s a very patient guy and I would trust him with her any time I need to.”
“Viola has helped me out with my dog Jax many times. She has walked him when I couldn't make it home on long work days and watched him when I've been away. Jax is a big dog and can be hard to handle, but Viola manages him perfectly. Highly recommend 10/10!”
About: Hi, nice to meet you and thank you for coming to visit my page 😊. I’m Kelsey!!! I work full time for Rover because I love animals of all shapes and sizes and have since I was a small child so this is my dream job. I had a pet Black Lab Midnight however he passed away when I was younger after 14 years of a good life with me and my family. I currently have two cats one is Oliver and the other Yemaya and I love them both very much and everyone who meets them tells me I’m lucky to have such amazing fur children since they’re so well behaved minus the zoomies they sometimes get 😂. I’ve been caring for animals for 15+ years including dogs, cats, and small animals. I love seeing a dogs happy smile when we’re taking a walk and hearing a cats pleased purr when they get scratched behind their ears. 😊 I am open to any suggestions 👂 from the parent of the pet or pets, on making your fur baby comfortable with me since I’ll treat them like family while I am dog walking or maybe even pet sitting in your home. Thank you for letting me be your Pet Caretaker I promise to treat them like family. ❤️ Also, I’m knowledgeable on how to administer medications, vitamins, and grooming pets. I’m able to control leashed animals over 50 lbs. Rover is currently my full-time job, I am available on weekdays for dog walks and pet sitting on the weekends when you have to run errands and don’t wanna leave your fur baby home alone. I live in a very secure building so my pet has never escaped or even left the apartment. The yard is fully fenced in with a wood fence and I also keep my new dog on the leash at all times unless we’re in the yard playing.
