“I loved natalia she’s very attentive with the fur babies. This was my first time using the app and was scared to leave my dogs at another place. When I told her she offered to do a consultation at her house I was able to take my dogs to her house to meet her and see if it was a good fit. They were very comfortable there dis great. We decided to leave them at her care for A day and she always sent me pictures which made me feel at peace knowing they were doing good. I wl definitely be using her services in the future. Great doggy sitter for my fur girlies.”
“Excellent care ! Chad is very friendly and knowledgeable. He has a big house with a huge backyard. When I arrived for pick up, my dog was sleeping on the couch. Comfortable and safe. Thank you.”
“Kelly took such wonderful care of our pup!! At 4 months old, Moose needs a LOT of play and attention (our training seems to go out the window when he's in a new place), but Kelly did an amazing job keeping him happy, loved, and up to speed with his commands. We could tell from the second we dropped him off that she knew exactly how to handle his puppy energy, and she sent us pictures and updates throughout the day to let us know how things were going. She even sent him home with his favorite snacks!! We will definitely rebook with Kelly in the future :)”
“Shuvashna is awesome dogsitter. We left our 4 months puppy for daycare with her and it was amazing. He was playing with other dogs, running around. All the other dogs were friendly, all the time under the supervision. Shuvashna watched our puppy carefully, making sure he is feeling great, fed him and put to sleep when he needed. She also sent us tons of awesome pictures and videos!! I would definitely recommend Shuvashna for daycare.”
About: I have had a dog my entire life from the time I was a kid, ever since I can remember. I am skilled with dogs and I've taken dog training classes so I know what your dog is saying by reading his/her body language. I am good with puppies and older dogs and I can also manage a dog whose somewhat skiddish or scared by moving slow and taking time to let the dog trust me. I have two dogs of my own and I walk them daily on long walks, usually 1.5 hours in the oakland hills . Happy to bring your dogs along or happy to have them come stay with me at my house should you need it. Pet care fits into my everyday schedule as I have 2 dogs of my own (they are socialized and good with other dogs). I would Say I spend about 1.5 hrs walking them per day total plus time for attention when hanging out at home. I work from so it's easy to have the dogs here with me and they get plenty of attention and love. I have a fenced yard with space for some running but most of the running takes place while out on long walks. I also have a good clean pet friendly home. I am great at following instructions when It comes to dog sitting or house sitting. I'm dependable and trustworthy and I know how to care for your dogs safely in any environment whether your house or having them at my house.
“Osaze did such a good job taking care of my dog! As soon as Dobby met him he liked him right away. Osaze sent me pictures as well that I really enjoyed. I will definitely book with him again!”
“Bernie had such a lovely time with the crew! Kim and Jeff were so lovely, patient, and kind to him. We received plenty of photo and text updates throughout the day, which made us feel so confident about leaving our fur baby with separation anxiety in their care. Highly recommend ?”

“I feel confident leaving Emma in the safe hands of Marc and Jayne, be it for a day or weeks! They are amazing, they go the extra mile to make your pup feel comfortable. Hands-down one of my best experiences on Rover.”
“We have been boarding & dogsitting with Charlene for over a year now and we've had consistent, positive experiences every single time. Charlene has excellent communication. She works around our drop-off and pick-up schedules with every visit and her flexibility is so helpful when our flights get delayed or things happen that we did not anticipate. We have two 70+ lbs. pitbulls who literally jump out of our car to meet Charlene at her gate every single time we drop them off. Charlene is such an amazing sitter that she always has more than one dog at her home, which provide our pups with the exercise and socialization that they need, and they love it! Charlene sends us multiple pictures while we're gone and we never have to ask her for an update. It is absolutely clear that she loves dogs & is great at what she does or she wouldn't have all of her stellar reviews! Book fast and far ahead, because her schedule fills up quick! In regards to food, we always pack extra food for our dogs and they will not go through all of it. Every dog I've owned goes on a hunger strike each time we leave them with a sitter/boarder. They are fine, every time. If you're looking for a flexible, reliable sitter who tells it like it is, book with Charlene!”
“Negar was so amazing taking in taking care of our puppy that she didn’t want to come back with us and wanted to stay with Negar ?”
“I felt so much at peace leaving Casanova at doggy day care, especially with Lilian's photo updates. He came home tired and happy, a great sign he had a fun time!”
“What a treat for my dog Luna! Such an amazing property for the dogs to hang out. Mara is a sweet friend for Luna. Jeff and his wife were super responsive and kind. Best rover experience yet!”
“Our pup had a fantastic day with Kelsey! They’ve got a great setup, clean and bright living space with lots of space for lounging and a big fenced yard with some shady chilling spots. Kelsey was so sweet with our boy and knowledgeable about dog interactions. We felt totally comfortable and happy with our pup spending the day with Kelsey and will do it again soon.”
About: I have been caring for animals of all kind (and children!) since I was a teen. I worked at Sulphur Creek Nature Center as an animal educator, and have been a consistent pet sitter for friends and family. My wife has extensive experience caring for farm and zoo animals (having worked at both the Oakland Zoo and Disney Animal Kingdom). Personally, I grew up with dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles in my home as pets. Now, I have one darling mini Australian Shepherd who is 2 years old and very friendly with all kinds of dogs. We raised her from 11 weeks and so have experience caring for puppies. I work from home and have a very flexible schedule, so I am able to take a lot of special needs into consideration! I take my own dog on two walks a day, and am able to change our schedule according to your dog’s needs. I am almost always available via phone or text. Our home has a large fenced backyard with a small doggy door entrance to the home - if your dog can’t use the doggy door, we can just leave a door open for them. Because I am home all the time, I will never leave your pet unsupervised. I carefully ensure our home is free from anything dangerous and keep an eye on all animals during their stay to make sure they are safe and comfortable. My dog Nola is active and playful - if your dog needs more space to hang out alone and rest, I can separate them without a problem.
About: Our family has years of experience fostering and working with different types of dogs. This includes dogs from the East Bay SPCA and the fostering program called Hopalong. We also often take care of the dogs of family and friends to help with long duration boarding or just a daycare stay. For our own dog, we have taken dog training lessons at Petco and are certified in dog and cat first aid through the American Red Cross. We can take care of your dog so you can take a much-needed summer vacation. I am a work-from-home mom whose reliable high school children can constantly spend time with your beloved dog. We have a two-story home with a huge, fenced backyard. Our backyard includes a large surface area of grass that can be fenced off from the gravel area and driveway, if your dog prefers to be separated from other dogs.
“Kristy was amazing, she gave us updates throughout the day which was really important to my wife and I, as our sweet old timer suffers from separation anxiety. But with Kristy, she seemed so happy to be there and she looked like she was really enjoying her time with the other dogs. I was scared she wouldn’t want to come back home! I would wholeheartedly recommend her!”
“Collin is my go-to dog sitter whenever I am out of town. I have relied on him for both short and extended periods, and each time he ensured that my normally-clingy dog Wally felt comfortable and secure in my absence. He is a true dog lover who took the time to get to know Wally's preferences, habits, and quirks. He always maintains open lines of communication, sending me regular updates and photos while watching Wally. His own dog Jax is also the type of dog that gets along with anyone and everyone, and will make your pet's stay even more fun. I highly recommend Collin to watch your pup - he will always be my first choice!”
