“We are very thankful to Joshua & Richard for taking care of Archie when our previous Rover's booking has been cancelled two hours prior to our arrival.”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of every kind. Neighbors, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed and clean their pets. I try to treat the dogs like I would treat my human clients when I'm training them. I will be available to work Monday through Sunday, times vary depending on when you need me. I take off Saturdays for Sabbath so I don't do any work on that day. I will come by to take your dog for a walk, depending on how long of a walk your dog needs, up to 45 minutes max. Dogs are air cooled animals so they cannot be out in the heat for very long.
“Joyce is fabulous! Smooth experience, very attentive, great communication. Thank you!”
“Ellie loves her time with Jessica, and we look forward to going back again!”
“Debra was amazing. Friendly and caring. She does not just watch your dog she wants to know all about them. She didn’t rush me when I was explaining about my dog and took everything into consideration. I’m very appreciative, and so is my furry little guy. 🐕”
About: I have lived with animals my entire life. I was raised around Dogs, cats, birds and fish. Growing up we had dogs of all sizes from tiny chihuahuas to larger collies. I have experience with younger dogs as I am currently raising an 8 month old German Shepherd named Arya. I also have plenty of experience with older dogs. I have done house sitting for family and friends in the past and would like to help the community take care of thier fury friends while away or busy. Thanks for reading!
“Donna & Mike are excellent caregivers. Our fur baby (Maia) suffers from anxiety which has not been an issue with staying with Donna & Mike. They lovingly cared for Maia. They sent videos and pics of her while under their care. We highly recommend their services. They go above and beyond caring for Maia and making us feel comfortable/relieved under their care.”
“Amber was amazing! Thanks so much for taking our Billy in short notice! He had a great time with your doggies and came home both happy and exhausted LOL thanks so much!”
“I have known Bethany for many years and know that she has strong work ethics which make her very responsible and dependable. She has had many pets through the years and I have always known her to be loving and caring for them. She always took them for regular veterinary care and grieved at their passing. She treats her current dog like he is her child and takes him with her everywhere. He has a better wardrobe than mine! He is a very important part of her life.”
Brooke Lynn G.
“Brooke was an amazing sitter for our golden retriever! He has epilepsy and special needs for medication and diet restrictions, so trusting a new sitter isn’t easy for us. She was flexible, communicative, reliable friendly, and loving. I got medication administration confirmation without asking, adorable pics of my dog and her dog, food/potty updates, and excellent care. I would recommend Brooke 100%! We look forward to our next sitting with her! :)”
“Alanna has watched our pets for years. She has stayed at our home, come for feeding and walking only and also taken dogs to her home to stay. We’ve always felt they were loved and cared for. She cares for our cats and birds as well. We trust her and know she loves animals just as she loves her children.”
“There is no human on the planet who loves animals more than Bill (my dad). As an example, he created a dog rest station outside his home to make sure dogs have access to water and treats in the hot Florida weather. Dogs bring him the most sincere joy. He has unlimited patience and kindness in general, and doubly so for animals. He loves interacting with dogs, playing with them, and teaching them tricks. Our family dogs never leave our side, expect when their doggie grandfather comes to town, then they sit at his feet!”
Luciano & Luciene S.
“I am vacationing in Sarasota for the month of January and feel very fortunate to have found Luciano And Luciene on Rover. I am picky about who dog sits for my cavaliers because they are part of my family. Luciene greets my dogs with real dog loving joy! Yes, they live in an Apt. but they. have wonderful walking paths right on site. My doggies love, love to go on walks and Luciene takes them frequently. I am very pleased and most importantly of all I am confident that they are safe. I appreciate them so very much and my doggies will continue daycare with them on days I want to be a tourist!”
“Joey is a very responsible dog owner and walker. He’s watched my frenchie and terrier mix, they love him. He sends picture updates and I know I can count on him to treat my dog like his own. I would highly recommend using Joey to walk or watch your pup!”
About: I have been taking care of dogs my entire life. From my families, to my neighbors and to my friends, they have all asked me for help. I am working part time right now, and I set my own schedule. So, I can work any time, any place. Let me know what works best for you. I always try to treat the animal with the upmost respect. They are living creatures and deserve the best treatment possible. I am very friendly to them and let them build trust with me first.
Charlotte J L.
“We have been bringing our shy 2 year old rescue dog, Phoebe, to Jeannine's home for a couple of months now. We did not want to ever leave Phoebe at a kennel, and now she is happy visiting her fun and safe "2nd home"! She enjoys her weekly daycare time, and when an occasional vacation week comes up for us, we don't hesitate to let Phoebe have her vacation too!! In addition, we enjoy seeing the photos and comments Jeannine sends every time. Our little pup is learning to trust again, and we know Jeannine, Randy (and golden retriever, Toby) have helped with her becoming a fun and well adjusted dog. We feel so fortunate to have found this wonderful situation for Phoebe, and would recommend them without hesitation to take great care of any doggie family member. David and Cami Duttry”
“Helen is a true dog lover. She is able to work with all sizes of dogs. She has worked with a trainer and has a very good understanding of animal behavior and how to work with difficult behaviors. Helen taught me that the dog walk is not just bonding/training time between dog and walker but also an exciting sensory experience that is very important in very dog’s day. She is very dependable no matter what the weather is like. If the dog will go out she will too! She will be an excellent addition to Rover.”
About: I have a very gentle, caring, amiable, & patient demeanor. I’m single & live alone in a house with a big fenced-in backyard. Since its just me, I have a lot of love & time to give, so please be assured that your pet will receive plenty of affection and attention!! I work from home, so I will be here with your dog(s) pretty much the entire time. I enjoy any opportunity to walk dogs and I always care for my friends’ pets while they’re away, so am familiar with several different types of breeds and mannerisms. I work from home and have a flexible schedule, so my availability is nearly 100% during the weekdays. Weekends I may step out for a couple hours at a time, but also have wide-open availability to be home & present with your pet. Im accustomed to dogs with behavioral issues & anxiety. Im willing to have 1-2 dogs at a time in my home, I happily provide plenty of attention, love, and playtime. I love any opportunity to take them out on walks, as I live near a big park and also across from Indian beach/Saphire shores neighborhood, which is a huge nice walking neighborhood.
“Sheila is the most amazing pet owner/sitter. She has a genuine compassion and love for all animals, especially dogs. When she has watched my dogs, she does an outstanding job. I am never worried for their wellbeing as I know she is there. My dogs always seem a bit more sad after Sheila leaves because she spoils them so much with her love! I'm sure my dogs wish that Sheila lived with them all of the time! ”
“DENISE is very good with animals. She has watched my beautiful cat Bella many times and took very good care of her. I never had to worry about her when I was away. I totally trust DENISE with any animal she’s watched a friends dog more than once and she was very pleased with Denise’s services. She has all the qualities of a great pet sitter very caring, and very attentive. Thank you Michelle”
