Rosemary did SUCH a good job with house- & dog-sitting my pup in my apartment. Her attention to detail with the care instructions I gave, and how well she accommodated lots of instructions for a higher-maintenance dog, gave me so much peace of mind as I was out of town. I'll be booking her again when I'm traveling next! Thank you!!

Oli helped us out on really short notice and took fantastic care of our pup. It was such a relief to know our girl was getting love and attention while we were away. Thank you, Oli!

Mackenzie took wonderful care of my pups while I was away! My oldest has some pretty severe anxiety that can lead to behavioral problems, and MacKenzie did not even hesitate to take on the challenge. She was able to spend a ton of time at home with them and take them places with her when she had to leave so that were constantly with company and happy, relaxed and engaged. Also, just so kind and friendly. Really genuine and caring energy. Loved that about her! I will certainly be using her for future out of town dates!

Kylie was amazing at taking care of my 10yo dog, while away with some friends for a long weekend. She was available prior to the trip to do walks so he could become familiar with her. She was so kind, patient with his pace on walks, had a flexible schedule, and was great with updates. I had such peace of mind while I was away and felt confident she had everything under control. Kylie would be a fantastic choice for anyone looking to get quality help! Charles and I are so happy to have been introduced to her on Rover, she is the best!

Emmalee is amazing! Zena is a senior and dog selective. Emmalee comes to our house and stays. Takes such good care of her. Gets her to eat, walks her, loves her, stays with her and treats her like her own. I wouldn’t use anyone else for our fur-babe! She is a god-send. Thank you!!!!

Christina was awesome! She took great care of our dog and cat - sent some cute pictures and even gave our dog some meds when she noticed his allergies were acting up. She is prompt, responsive, and our animals loved her. Would definitely recommend her and will definitely be using her again. Thanks again, Christina!!

We're so grateful Elizabeth was able to house sit and watch all our animals! Our dog is a grumpy old man who can be frustrating, and Elizabeth handled him with ease. Our super shy cat even made friends with her, which is a rare occurrence. We got plenty of pictures and updates while we were gone. She stopped by after we were home, and our dog ran out to greet her, so clearly she is amazing!

Andrew was wonderful with our Mega Dane , Max and older girl, Bella. He was dependable and cognizant of the our fur babies’ needs. The house was neat and straight on our return. The pups enjoyed their activities with him and were disappointed when he didn’t show up the next day! Max runs to the door when I ask where’s Andrew! It was a very positive experience and we will definitely ask for his help again. Thank you Andrew.

Kyle was great! He stayed in my apartment with Morty while I was in Texas. When I returned Morty was healthy and happy and my apartment was just as I left it. Kyle was quick to respond to messages and provided updates on how Morty was doing.

Third times a charm! Amber is our go to first choice for watching our pup and house when we go out of town. Now that her and my pup Cleo are friends, Cleo gets so excited to see Amber come through the door. As always she took great care of our pup, sent tons of pictures, washed sheets, and left the house very clean! We will continue to request her time & again 😎

Rebecca was so amazing!! I needed a sitter at the last minute, her calendar was up to date, and she was able to stay with my fur babies. I'm always hesitant to confirm booking with someone until I meet them in person, but Rebecca eased my nerves and made me feel comfortable! She has a great bubbly personality and took amazing care of my dogs. Sent me pictures and updates throughout the time she was there, and I never once worried about them. I will definitely be hiring her again!

I've been friends with Jim for over 15 years. He is genuinely one of the kindest, gentle souls you'll ever meet. Anybody who knows Jim, knows Clyde- his best fur friend and sidekick for so many years. He is great with pets, his own dog & cats adored him their whole lives. I think this is a great way for Jim to fulfill his love for animals, while helping him heal from his own furbaby crossing the rainbow bridge. <3

Hannah did a wonderful job with our puppy. She provided plenty of updates and ensured his daily routine was followed. Took him on walks to get all the puppy energy out, and took plenty of photos for us to enjoy while away for the weekend! Highly recommend.
