“I have booked multiple dog sitters/boarders through Rover.com and Julie is one of the best! She was very caring with my dog, sent photos and videos, gave updates and reassured me that Edie was having a great time. When I picked Edie up after a week away, she looked like she was actually smiling! She was very happy and had made many friends. Julie's house allows for the dogs to run out the door, around the very large fenced in yard, and back inside again. Edie had lots of exercise and slept all the way home. I will book with Julie again!”
“My dog stayed about 9 days with Devan at her home. My dog received good care and I had message updates and a couple of pictures. It was a very good experience and I would like to use her boarding services in the future.”
“Highly recommend Ashley! This is the first time I have had my dog stay overnight. I received pictures and updates on how it was going and she put my mind and worries at ease. I will definitely be using Ashley again.”
Mira & Steven B.
“When I received the invitation to write a testimonial for Mira and Steven, it was a no-brainer for me. I had the pleasure of knowing them in Switzerland before they moved to the United States, and I can wholeheartedly vouch for their exceptional skill and genuine love for animals. They've looked after my pet in the past, and the experience was nothing short of perfect. They treated my fur baby as if it were their own—providing not just the necessary care but also an abundance of love and attention. It's rare to find people who have both the professionalism and the heartfelt care that Mira and Steven offer. If you want peace of mind while you're away from your pet, look no further. Highly recommended!”
“Ajax was so well taken care of! Ajax is a big dog and can have some protection issues around other bigger dogs, and Emily took great care of him right alongside her sweet pup. I got updates as needed with plenty of pictures! Such an easy and wonderful stay (with a great backyard!).”
“Wonderful Experience! Karen was able to quickly and thoughtfully accommodate our dog, Dewey, very last minute! He had a wonderful time and is tuckered out from playing with all his new doggie friends. Would recommend!”
“Stephanie was amazing with our Great Dane Tucker’s stay while we went on our cruise! Tucker is like an extra child in our home and is a huge part of our family. He loves to be included in the action and play and “sulks” like it’s the end of the world if he’s not included. Stephanie was amazing with communication, keeping routine, keeping him busy, engaged, and happy. He looked amazing when we picked him up and clearly exhausted as he gained some new friends while he stayed. I look forward to boarding with Stephanie in the future for family trips if she’s available! She was very responsive, her questions were appropriate and reassuring that she was invested in our pups care and not just the money, and sent us photos while we were away to reassure us he was doing well!”
“Very welcoming and felt extremely comfortable leaving my Labrador here for a trial run before the big vacation. Cassidy, THANK YOU. Charley looks forward to seeing you again in August!”
“Brihana is amazing!! I could tell my pup had a great time, because every picture sent she looked so happy! Brihana gave the perfect amount of updates and photos, has great clean home, and big yard for dogs. Overall Brihana is an awesome and very caring person. I hope to have her watch my dog again!! ?”
“Erin is awesome! She took my dog on runs, to the park, and was communicative and took plenty of photos! Would 1000% recommend Erin to watch your pets!”
“Made my dog feel right at home! Brittany kept me posted to entire stay. Happy to have found a sitter that he likes!”
“Courtney was great watching our dog Pippin! She was very communicative and also sent great pictures. Pip can be a little nervous in new situations and she seemed to have a good time and Courtney set her at ease. Thanks so much!”
“Olivia was amazing with my dogs!!! They went on a trail hike with Olivia and had so much fun! I would definitely recommend using Olivia for boarding/walks!!!”
“Becca is a personal friend of mine and a lover of all animals! We traveled together and she took care of a friend's puppy a few times a week. She's active and likes to go on walks throughout the work day, so your dog will definitely get exercise with her. I've encouraged her to do Rover before because of how great she is with animals.”
“Jennifer and her set up was just perfect for my active Aussie, Brutus. It was our first time meeting Jennifer and I felt confident in her abilities right away and felt the same when I p8cked up Brutus. I'll be back! Thank you so much :)”
About: Without exception, the dog park is always one of the best parts of my day. I've had three dogs of my own, and have been around countless other dogs, most of whom instantly become my new best friends. We just gravitate to each other, hence the fuzzy friend whisperer nickname. I have a playful, loving attitude toward every dog I meet. I am also sensitive to dogs who need a little more patience and space to ease into trusting me and respect the boundaries that they need to do that. My training style with my own dogs is focused on positive reinforcement rather than punishment. This approach translates to other dogs as well, unless their owners request differently. Your dog will be in caring, responsible hands with me. They will be loved. I'm self employed and work mostly from home so my schedule is quite flexible. When house sitting, I won't leave your dog alone for more than 5 hours and will likely just bring them home with me during the day where they'll receive more regular attention throughout the day. I live on a small farm but also live near a road, so your dog will always be safely on a leash when we go outside for potty breaks. I have a very friendly 11 year old 55lb labradoodle named Huck to keep your baby company in the rare cases that I'm not at home. House sitting situations will only work if your animals are friendly with other dogs and you're ok with me bringing my own dog with me to stay. I may bring them home with me during the day, where they'll get more regular attention throughout the day (unless they'd be happier staying at home and snoozing). I have a "squirrel observatory" (bird feeder) right near my workspace so your dog will not only be supervised most of the time but also entertained.
“My pooch has never felt more at home with a sitter! She felt so comfortable that she ate all her food (which is usually a struggle while I'm away) and had no issues whatsoever. She even made the rounds saying goodbye to everyone before we left. I couldn't be happier with the care my dog received and will be back again soon!”
Josh & Nicole G.
“My dog always has a great time with Josh and Nicole. He’s always super excited when we get there and is wiped out when we get home. We will definitely be back!”
“I can’t even really begin to say how wonderful Nicole was in watching our King Charles cavalier puppy. He is still a puppy and can be very attention seeking. And Harley was so happy and content spending time with Nicole in her wonderfully dog friendly home. We had a weekend away for medical reasons of a family member and the photos and videos of Harley were incredibly reassuring so we could be attentive to our family member while knowing our puppy was well taken care of. He didn’t want to leave. We owe many thanks to Nicole for taking Harley in and treating him like one of her own. I couldn’t recommend her more highly. She’s the best! ❤️.”
“Andrew is a very caring and loving person. He watched my New Finland Moose for a week and he had the best time! I felt very comfortable and he treated Moose as if he was his own dog. I will definitely be using his services in the future and would recommend him to anyone!!”
