“Ariena gave our dog, Cali, top-notch care, allowing us to fully enjoy our vacation without worry. Cali is very petite and is getting older, I was very nervous to have someone watch her, but Ariena treated Cali as if she were her own and put my mind at ease. Ariena sent many adorable photos and updates throughout their time together, which we greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Ariena and will book her in the future!”
“Coneisa did an amazing job caring for our two dogs and our bunny! She was incredibly attentive and communicated all details of the sitting well. It was our first time with a house sitter and she made me feel comfortable leaving them in her care. I will definitely be reaching out to her again for our next sitting!!”
“Melissa was wonderful taking care of and interacting with my dog, Tank. She was very responsible with Tank's diet, as well as feeding on time and making sure he always had water. She never ignored him, and always took him for walks. The amount of attention she had for Tank was amazing. I would highly recommend Melissa.”
“Patricia was a great sitter . Had a great experience . April was very happy with her ! Thank you Patricia .”
“Giselle did a great job house sitting for our dog over the weekend. Our dog seemed minimally stressed (we just moved and it’s hard for him to be in a new environment), she sent great updates, and left the house clean. Will definitely use her again!”

With a passion for animals and a lifetime of experience in pet care, I'm dedicated to providing top-notch care and love to your furry family members.

Your pets' well-being and peace of mind are my top priorities, and I'm dedicated to offering a secure and enjoyable experience during their stay.
“Katie did a wonderful job house sitting all three of our dogs. We were regularly updated with pics and vids of all three dogs, and they were having a great time. The house was just as we left it and needless to say, we are booking Katie for our next vacation away. You can have peace of mind and rest assured that your pets are in good hands while you're away!”
“Katie has always had a love for animals, but dogs in particular. She has always taken excellent care of her own animals as well as making an effort to take care of any other animal around her. She has had pets her entire life and they have always been incredibly important to her.”
“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.”
“Lily is super sweet. She cat/house sit for a week. She regularly sent photos. The cats are happy and content. She did a great job and we will hire her again.”
“Vincent is very reliable and trustworthy. He follows instructions without any issues, especially when your pet needs a little more extra care and attention. He can administer medication no problem at all and on time. If you need to follow-up with anything, he is quick to respond and reply back. Our little Daisy loves Vincent and cannot get enough of him. She was so sad when we had to go. Vincent is also kind, easy to approach and communicative.”
“Tyler is a reliable and trustworthy pet caregiver! I could not recommend him enough. Finding quality care for furry family members when you’re away is scary, but Tyler makes it so easy to rely on him. He will truly love your pets like they are his own, and I appreciate how great he is with my dog and rabbit. Not to mention his communication skills are great and he’s incredibly responsive, so leaving my babies with him makes me feel 100% stress free. I would 10/10 recommend Tyler for you and your pets needs!”
“We hired Sarah to house/pet sit for us for just under a week. She stayed in our home and took care of our 6-month-old puppy, our 2 cats, and our 6 chickens. Also an assortment of plants and bonsai trees. This was our first time ever having a sitter stay at our home. Sarah was awesome! She sent pictures during our time away. It was clear that our puppy Taco was having the best time. Our cats and chickens and plants were well taken care of. We even had the unique situation of having home inspectors come during Sarah's stay (we are preparing to sell our home) and she was very accommodating to that. We arrived home to happy pets, a clean house and fresh sheets already on our bed. Thank you Sarah!”
“She is so attentive and our pups adore her. Very kind and responsible. We very much trust and enjoy having her at our home and it makes traveling so much easier!”
“Leilani stayed at our house over two nights to watch your dog. She gave him lots of extra attention, bathed him, brushed him, and cuddled with him at night! She gave us updates during her stay with pictures and videos which was much appreciated! Highly recommend Leilani!”
“Wen was great with my house and my 12 year old dog when I was out of town for 3 days. She even bought a new rope toy when she discovered my dog's love of tug of war. Wen was good on paw patrol and made sure my dog didn't muddy the carpet with all the rain that was going on. She was very communicative and sent lots of pics and video of my dog having a nice relaxing time. I will certainly reach out to Wen again for my future house/dog sitting needs.”
“Christina is a loving and caring person, she absolutely adores animals! Christina has taken care of my Labrador on many occasions and every single time it has been so reassuring knowing that my fur child is in her care, with her gentle and excellent abilities to her broad knowledge for animal care. I always have a peace of mind when I’m away from my doggos.”
“Tesla took great care of Sawyer& Finlay- was easy to communicate with- responsive and sent pictures during her stay! Very appreciative!!! Thanks Tesla !!”
“This summer, Andrea cared for our senior dog, Maz, in our home for 10 days—it was the longest we’d been away from Maz , who’s 17, since his rescue in 2020—and Andrea’s skill and caring attention made it easy for Maz, and for us. She expertly gave him his meds both morning and night, walked and played with him, and kept in touch with updates and photos. So even though we were far away, we never worried knowing Maz was in good hands. We highly recommend Andrea for dog/house-sitting and look forward to working with her again!”
