Joshua & Richard D.
“Our pup did a Doggy Day Care with Josh and Rick and he enjoyed every minute of it. He is dog tired now so that is a sign of a fun day. Josh and Rick messaged me throughout the day and sent me photos to let me know my pup was adjusting to the new environment just fine. I will definitely use Josh and Rick again.”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of every kind. Neighbors, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed and clean their pets. I try to treat the dogs like I would treat my human clients when I'm training them. I will be available to work Monday through Sunday, times vary depending on when you need me. I take off Saturdays for Sabbath so I don't do any work on that day. I will come by to take your dog for a walk, depending on how long of a walk your dog needs, up to 45 minutes max. Dogs are air cooled animals so they cannot be out in the heat for very long.
About: I have lived with animals my entire life. I was raised around Dogs, cats, birds and fish. Growing up we had dogs of all sizes from tiny chihuahuas to larger collies. I have experience with younger dogs as I am currently raising an 8 month old German Shepherd named Arya. I also have plenty of experience with older dogs. I have done house sitting for family and friends in the past and would like to help the community take care of thier fury friends while away or busy. Thanks for reading!
About: I have owned, raised and loved four golden retrievers and most recently a golden doodle. i lost my golden doodle to cancer at the age of 12 last week, on November 28, 2023. My heart isn’t ready to adopt another dog, but I am looking to have the opportunity to care and love on other dogs, who need walks, visits / treats / love / belly rubs/ , or potentially even overnight care. I honestly can’t even think about taking a walk around my block without my golden doodle by my side. I believe that God has given us animals as one of the greatest gifts for companionship. I adore and deeply care for dogs, and have a lot of experience walking my own animals and various levels of training. While I’ve mostly had experience walking big dogs, I am behind capable of walking smaller dogs as well. I work from home, so the dogs that stay with me are typically at my feet. I usually walk my dog 3 to 4 times a day to get them out of the house. if you’re interested in having an experienced passionate dog person to take care of her animal I’m definitely the one for you! I preferred to do walks in the morning when the weather is cooler, which is a course better for the animals as well as the humans. I definitely reserve the longer walks for the mornings. I can get started as early as 6 AM. I work from home so I will be attentive to their needs all through out the day. if we’re talking about overnight, I also have a son and a daughter who live with me. One is a senior in high school, and the other is a freshman both at local high schools, and they are ready willing and able to give love belly, rubs, and toss the ball. And our house dogs are generally regarded in the status of humans so they do sleep on beds and on pillows and snuggle the family. If you have a dog that isn’t allowed on the bed, then you have to let me know specifically because our house dogs are family . With regard to my own home, we run a bit of a tight ship in terms of expectations, we have an enclosed lanai that has access to a large field where we take the dogs for walks. We live on a cul-de-sac that has undeveloped property so we enjoy Using that space throughout the day. We are ready willing and able to accommodate any pet owners requirements for their specific pets needs. We are also very prepared to provide the schedule to support any medication’s that need to happen.
“Ellie loves her time with Jessica, and we look forward to going back again!”
“Joyce is fabulous! Smooth experience, very attentive, great communication. Thank you!”
“Isabelle cares for Minnie (multi-poo) like Minnie is her own child. I am assured every time I go out of town Minnie is well cared for. She follows my care instructions responsibly and when I text for a “missing Minnie text update” she will reply back immediately and even send a picture. When Minnie sees Isabelle she goes willingly with a friendly wag of her tail and I leave relaxed knowing Minnie is well cared for.”
“Donna & Mike are excellent caregivers. Our fur baby (Maia) suffers from anxiety which has not been an issue with staying with Donna & Mike. They lovingly cared for Maia. They sent videos and pics of her while under their care. We highly recommend their services. They go above and beyond caring for Maia and making us feel comfortable/relieved under their care.”
“DENISE is very good with animals. She has watched my beautiful cat Bella many times and took very good care of her. I never had to worry about her when I was away. I totally trust DENISE with any animal she’s watched a friends dog more than once and she was very pleased with Denise’s services. She has all the qualities of a great pet sitter very caring, and very attentive. Thank you Michelle”
“I have known Bethany for many years and know that she has strong work ethics which make her very responsible and dependable. She has had many pets through the years and I have always known her to be loving and caring for them. She always took them for regular veterinary care and grieved at their passing. She treats her current dog like he is her child and takes him with her everywhere. He has a better wardrobe than mine! He is a very important part of her life.”
“Amber was the absolute best! She sent pictures through out the day, helped teach our puppy how to go down multiple stairs and was generally really sweet and attentive to our pup. Excited to have him stay with her in the future!”
“Alanna has watched our pets for years. She has stayed at our home, come for feeding and walking only and also taken dogs to her home to stay. We’ve always felt they were loved and cared for. She cares for our cats and birds as well. We trust her and know she loves animals just as she loves her children.”
“E G. Is very responsible with animals. I find her to be loving, patient and caring. She is capable of working with a variety of pet personalities and follows directions completely. Dogs are happy to be with her; she has great spirit and energy.”
Brooke Lynn G.
“Brooke was an amazing sitter for our golden retriever! He has epilepsy and special needs for medication and diet restrictions, so trusting a new sitter isn’t easy for us. She was flexible, communicative, reliable friendly, and loving. I got medication administration confirmation without asking, adorable pics of my dog and her dog, food/potty updates, and excellent care. I would recommend Brooke 100%! We look forward to our next sitting with her! :)”
“Buckshot had such a great time with Tallie and her pup crew. He was so sleepy when he got home. I will definitely choose Tallie when I need a dog sitter again!”
About: I have been taking care of dogs my entire life. From my families, to my neighbors and to my friends, they have all asked me for help. I am working part time right now, and I set my own schedule. So, I can work any time, any place. Let me know what works best for you. I always try to treat the animal with the upmost respect. They are living creatures and deserve the best treatment possible. I am very friendly to them and let them build trust with me first.
“Joey is a very responsible dog owner and walker. He’s watched my frenchie and terrier mix, they love him. He sends picture updates and I know I can count on him to treat my dog like his own. I would highly recommend using Joey to walk or watch your pup!”
“Ashley was so sweet and clearly a true dog lover! :) She had great communication the whole time and was very accommodating. Definitely would recommend!!”
“A Christmas lifesaver!!! I appreciate Ali for making cocoas 1st rover awesome ? wish I could tip more than the 30%”
“Helen is a true dog lover. She is able to work with all sizes of dogs. She has worked with a trainer and has a very good understanding of animal behavior and how to work with difficult behaviors. Helen taught me that the dog walk is not just bonding/training time between dog and walker but also an exciting sensory experience that is very important in very dog’s day. She is very dependable no matter what the weather is like. If the dog will go out she will too! She will be an excellent addition to Rover.”
