“Coretta takes very good care of our 2 dogs! She walks them on a regular basis and makes sure they have enough food and are properly hydrated. What I love most about Coretta is how she interacts with them. They have completely different personalities and Coretta keeps up! She's also punctual and always follows instructions. If you want a loving, professional pet caregiver, Coretta is the way to go!”
“Lupe was the absolute best sitter we could have asked for! This was the first time we needed to use a sitter and we were anxious about how it would go, she will be our first and hopefully only option moving forward. We received great pictures and updates while we were gone, our pup enjoyed it, and she left our home way better than she found it. Lupe went above and beyond for our dog and it was clear. We couldn’t have been more impressed and grateful. Thank you so much, Lupe!”
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!
“She did an amazing job with my babies while I was gone for the weekend. She made sure they ate and had water and made sure our house was safe . We would definitely hire her again.”
“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.”
“My mom has a 75 husky who is a big baby. My mom went in the hospital for almost a month and we needed help because I couldn’t stay there all the time. When I spoke to Kaitlyn, they came same day and met her, and they hit it off. Kaitlyn was at my moms house for over 20 days. They were absolutely amazing with our dog. I will definitely be using Kaitlyn again. They are extremely professional and accommodating and even when I needed to add some more days was they were perfectly fine to do those days for us. I cannot stress enough that if you are looking for someone to love on your pet and make sure that they’re comfortable, be treated the same way that they are when you’re home, and trustworthy while being in your home, Kaitlyn is your person. They sent a ton of pictures and had great communication. There are no words for how much we appreciate them❤️”
About: Since I was born I loved animals! I even had a “job” on a farm by the age of 6, helping bring the chicks and ducklings back into the incubators, teaching the other kids how to hold the bunnies correctly, etc. Every animals I’ve come across, I fall in love with. Regardless of age, size, gender, species, etc; I absolutely adore them. I’ve had 3 jobs working with dogs (2 doggy daycares and a kennel) so I have plenty of experience with animals and being able to read what’s going on, whether it be good or bad. I don’t think I’ve ever come across an animal that I didn’t get along with! I have had/learned how to give medications, stop fights, keep a big group under control, do light grooming, keep perfect records of each dog I get to know, etc. Very good attention to detail and learn/adapt extremely quick. I’ve always planned on making my career animal related; helping rescue and foster abused/neglected pups, eventually building my own beautiful, loving shelter and a doggy daycare. 🤍 We’ll get there one day! I do work a 7-3 Monday through Thurs (sometimes Fridays) but 50% of the time I’m off by 1pm. I hope this isn’t an issue but I know how easily it could be and how much attention your fur baby deserves so I can’t wait to shower them with all my love when I “get home”! 🤍 If checking in, first thing on the list is always water bowl, and food if necessary & wanted by you. Medications as well if needed. Spend some time playing with them, take any dogs out to use the bathroom and get some exercise with me for a bit! I can be hyper-focused on things, and notice the smallest changes in behavior/physical traits in animals I’m observing, so in the case of something being potentially wrong, I can assure the owner(s) I’d notice easily once I got to know your pet a bit! No bad past experiences with clientele, whether home sits, check-in’s, or walks. I have multiple references if needed! :)

“Hello , I like to tell you about Emma F. Last year my husband and I had to go away for almost 3 month, Emma stayed with our 3 pets (Jake, Luna and Misha). She did a fabulous job at taking care of them, walk them everyday and of course spoiled them. She made sure to update us often as to how our babies were doing. We highly recommend her, I assure you that your pets will be loved and taken very good care with Emma. Marcella and Don”
About: 😀 Greetings & thank you for stopping by my page! I’m Paige! I work for Rover because why not get paid to do what I LOVE!!!! I had a Maltese/Shitzu and I loved our 12 years of time together, unfortunately it was cut short. Now I have all the doggy love to give! I’ve grown from being afraid of animals to loving them so much. Large doggos make me feel protected. Small pups make me feel like a protector. I will care for and protect each pet and treat them with respect and love, forever. I love awarding with treats, rubs, and best of all, hugs 🤗 Long and fun walks are the best. I love dogs so much that I'll take yours into my home to care for! If this isn't love, I'm not sure what is ❤️ I’ve enjoyed my experience with Rover thus far. Thank you for allowing me to care for your Babies! I create my own work schedule so I’m able to be flexible with bookings and give more of my time to the fur babies if needed! I literally treat animals like they are my own human babies, so they are always safe with me! I have a 3.5 year old bunny and everyone always complains I treat her like my child, well she is! Lol
“I had to pass through Chicago on my way from the West to the East coast and needed to bring our dog with me. Dalila came to hotel to watch Maxie in the afternoon/evening and following morning. Clearly a dog lover and very reliable. Would definitely recommend.”
“Belicia was an amazing sitter who communicated with us often. She immediately put us at ease by sending us pictures, videos, details regarding every walk, etc. When we returned to our apartment it was in the exact same condition we left it, and our two dogs, Juniper and Basil, were calm, healthy, and happy. I will definitely keep Belicia in mind for future dog sitting/walking needs.”
“Sarajane was a great house sitter for my energetic pup and sent lots of pictures and updates. I came home to happy and healthy dog and the apartment was well taken care of. Would definitely book again.”
“Ciera was amazing with our pup and generously sent photos and videos during her stay. She was very sweet and helped us out immensely during our visit to Chicago; she was super flexible and very kind! We wouldn’t hesitate to use her in the future if we’re ever back this way. ?”
“Shironda was absolutely the best! She was very thorough and made sure to keep us posted on all the fun things she did with our fur babies. I highly recommend her for any of your pet needs.”
“Shiri did a great job housesitting and watching my pitbull while I was away on vacation. Very responsive and experienced with bully breeds.”
“Great sitter!!! Five Stars! Will rebook! Lauryn goes the extra mile! And when your fur babies are left home alone, that's exactly the type of person you need! -plus I was always updated on the day, and received lots of pictures! ? ?”
“Truly the best dog sitter I’ve ever had, both on Rover and personally. I trust her implicitly and she treats my two “children” like her own. I never worry when I’m gone and know they’re in the best of hands.”
“Molly was wonderful with my pup Otto and I came home to a very happy dog. Molly was also great with watching my home while sitting for Otto. Highly recommend!”
“Iselle was a delight to work with! She was very consistent, asked all the right questions, and our babies loved her. She kept us informed and sent pictures throughout her stay. She was very accommodating and we’d definitely use her in the future!”
