House Sitting in Central Business District, Newark
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
About: I’ve been around pets my whole life. I grew up with a dog and currently have a golden retriever. I’ve been a cat sitter for friends and family. I enjoy taking care of animals and keeping them company. I’m currently working part-time and I’m also a full-time student. On my free time I will have plenty of time to take care of pets. I have a dog of my own. He likes attention so I make sure to spend lots of time with him, by playing and going on long walks.
“Noelle saved our hides. Another sitter that we hired didn’t show and we were already out of state. So we needed someone to immediately come over and take over the sitting. Noelle without hesitation came over without having met any of our pets, and was absolutely perfect. Thank you for getting us out of an emergency!”
“Marquis was a wonderful sitter for our two dogs! We have a 6 year old Frenchie and a Mastiff puppy and Marquis was just the man for the job. Not easy with a young, big energetic pup! He sent us pictures and updates daily. The mastiff recently got neutered and Marquis cared for him, gave him his medicine and made sure he didn’t irritate his stitches. We felt completely comfortable knowing our boys were in good hands. He stayed at our place and kept it tidy, even cleaned and did the dishes he used. He left the apartment even cleaner than when we did! We highly recommend hiring Marquis for your pets too! We fully intend on booking Marquis for any future sitting needs.”
“Nick was so great with my Basset Hound! He sent pictures throughout the night which was so great to see. Will definitely be using Nick again to watch my dog, Magoo!”
“Carolina was very attentive to our boys and made sure to keep us updated. When we got back the boys were well rested and relaxed- both signs of a great sitter!”
“Diana is fantastic with animals, and takes great care of my cat, Figaro, every time she's watched him for me. She understands the importance of actively spending time with Figgy, whether he wants to cuddle up in her lap, play, or just coexist without being bothered. Diana sticks to feeding routines, keeping him away from houseplants, and always remembers where he does and doesn't like to get pet. I highly recommend her for your animal's care while you're away.”

“Chloe is absolutely a delight to have! She is very punctual, communicative and treats my dog with so much care and gentleness. Would definitely go with her again in the future!”
“Christian is a responsible pet owner who cares for animals as if they were his own. He is very attentive to any needs they have and good with communication.”
“We’re so grateful to Rover for helping us find Dali. Dali is wonderful and was so great with our pup! I received updates and photos throughout the day. As a first time fur mama, and also first time leaving the pup, those were very much appreciated. Bailey had such a great time with her. He’s still in the process of training, and Dali was a huge help in keeping things on schedule and consistent for him. I’m sure he can’t wait to spend time with her again. I don’t think I’d trust anyone else!”
About: I think what set me apart from other sitters is that I genuinely show the love I have for them. They deserve the world and deserve to be treated with all the love and care . I feel like some people will take advantage and do stuff with animals for money but I do not care about the money. I care about the animal I am taking care of and making sure that they get all the love and respect that they deserve. i Believe pet care fits in my daily life because I have a pet myself . I don’t see taking care of him as a job, in fact I see it as a gift and something I’m grateful for that I’m able to do. I also have a part time job and I’m a full time student so I have time to take care of the fluffy babies. I have a cat myself. I feed him every day , 3 times a day and I give him all the love in the world. I love to spoil my cat he is the best thing that has happened to me. I used to have a dog and she was my best friend. I enjoyed walking with her and spending time with her.
“Angelica is absolutely amazing!!!! She took great care of my two dogs while I was away and made sure to send me numerous photos every day throughout the week. It gave me great piece of mind, knowing that my two babies were being given the best care and so much attention and love! I will definitely be booking her again and 100% recommend her!”
“This was our first time leaving our puppy with someone else and Milena was awesome! She was super communicative and sent frequent updates on how our puppy was doing. We definitely plan on booking again and would recommend!”
“Yolanda was very informative and accommodating for our first time using Rover. Our pups seemed comfortable with her right away. She communicated with us throughout our trip and sent us pics of our fur babies. Will definitely work with her again.”
“Jornelle was absolutely incredible. She updated me throughout the entire stay, and took excellent care of my two cats. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and shows a true care for all animals. I would absolutely request her in the future, as well as recommend her to others for pet/house sitting.”
“Maggie loves Cali! She's walked and watched my temperamental, 60 lb dog to absolute exhaustion. She sends me pictures of Maggie's tail wagging and her looking like the happiest baby ever. She snuggles and reinforced the commands I was working on- sending videos of successes! It's absolutely amazing. She is timely in her responses, always on time and flexible. I cannot thank her enough for loving on my child as if it was her own!!!”
“Marlita is amazing! She’s so good with the pets and loves them like they’re her own! She’s excellent at sending photos and updates and is great with communication. We will definitely book her again when we need a sitter in the future.”
“Naeemah was a wonderful sitter for our 13 year old deaf dog, and our 5 year old cat. She took care of our furbabies and our home with great care. Would definitely recommend!”
About: For the last 2 years, I was fostering greyhounds in LA. I would take them in after they retire from racing in Tijuana, Mexico. It was a great experience teaching them how to live in a house and be a pet instead of a racer. I had my dog Buddy, a Schipperke mix, since I was 8, and I also have experience baby and pet sitting since I was 12, and a few years experience fostering. I would love to help you take care of your dog! I’m currently taking a sabbatical from working in the animation industry so I am free all the time lol. I’m in Hoboken and would love to walk dogs here and anywhere in New York City. I live in a small apartment so I won't be doing any boarding, but I can come to any neighborhood to walk your dog or spend time with them during the day.
“Katie has watched my dog very often as I travel for work frequently. I have an older (pretty grumpy) dog but Katie has always been great with him! She sends me photos and updates frequently which is very comforting while I'm away.”
“Wonderful sitter for our two cats while we were overseas for 19 days. Susi cared for our cats as if they were her own for the entire time we were away. We received daily updates of the cats with cute photos of them each time. Susi looked after our home and tidied up before she left at the end of her stay. Susi was highly communicative in the lead up to our departure and while she was sitting for the cats. This was our second time working with Susi and we will certainly reach out to her again to sit for our fur babies the next time we head out of town!”
