“I'm writing to say how happy and satisfied for the care Sarah has provided for my dog. Sarah provided exceptional care for my beloved poodle, Pearly. Sarah is a dog sitter which I strongly suggest and would recommend Sarah as a dog sitter for the future. She would be a valuable asset to your care. Recently, Sarah had the opportunity to dog sit Pearly while I was away for a two-week vacation and I am impressed with how kind, dependable, and competent she is with animals. Sarah has a natural affection for dogs and a keen awareness of their needs from the time she entered my house. In order to guarantee a smooth transition for Pearly, Sarah took the time to ask thorough questions regarding Pearly’s routine, dietary needs, and any special instructions during our first encounter. From the beginning, she made an attempt to connect with Pearly and demonstrated a sincere desire to get to know her. Sarah contacted me often and sent me photos of Pearly to keep me informed during my travels. Being able to sleep easy knowing that my pet was in good hands and getting the love and care she needed was made possible by this kind act. The pictures showed me that Pearly was having a great time and savored every second spent with Sarah Upon returning home, Pearly was high in energy and had obviously been properly taken care of. In order to keep Pearly in her daily routine - including regular exercise, timely feedings, and even grooming — it was obvious that Pearly was cared for as if she was her own down, and their relationship was evident. To sum up, I heartily recommend Sarah as a dog sitter for the future. She is the perfect fit for the position as she provided exceptional care and dedication as a sitter. As of today, I continue to remain in contact with her for regular walks and dog sitting.”

“My dogs Ginger and Mahi are like my kids - knowing they are being well taken care of by someone puts my mind at ease! Safal is our go to dog sitter during any vacation plans. My dogs adore her and also enjoy quality time with their friend Kashi. When we used Rover for the first time, we were looking for an extended stay for Ginger and Mahi. Met with Safal beforehand and very impressed with her, felt comfortable. Our 16 day trip turned into a 30 days due to lost passport and visa, and Safal was able to accommodate us. We could not be more grateful for this service and the quality personnel. We would not hesitate to book Rover, and Safal if she’s available.”
“Supriya is my dog’s favorite human! She has such a great way with dogs that I know my dog is having the best time when she’s taking care of him. She’s been very reliable and a great communicator! She’s treats my pets as if they were her own. l would highly recommend Supriya to everyone!”
“Super patient with my slightly obnoxious ladies!”
“Communicating with Priscilla was easy to set up dog-walking while we were away. She was punctual and reliable and my dad (who was watching our dog while we were away) says our dog was happy after each walk. Thank you, Priscilla!”
