Paula did a great job taking care of our dog! She was very communicative and had a great set up for dog sitting. Our dog had a lot of fun playing with the toys and her dogs. We are grateful!

Amanda is wonderful, she has watched my dog for me twice now and is always so pleasant and flexible. My dog loves her and gets excited when she figures out that she is going to see her! Highly recommend.

Kimberli was fantastic! She stayed in contact while my pup was with her and sent regular pictures of him clearly having a good time and getting lots of snuggles. On a personal note, my schedule was a bit hectic and she truly went above and beyond to try accommodate me, which was extremely kind. The next time I need a sitter, she's going to be my first pick!

Cash had the best time on his weekend stay with Aly. He had a Super Bowl party with new friends! I got lots of updates and could tell he was happy and relaxed. When I went to pick him up he said hello and trotted right back inside, he was not ready to leave! I know he will be so excited to go back to his new vacation house whenever we have to leave town!

Amaris was a wonderful sitter for our family dog during a 10-day vacation. She texted updates and photos daily, and was both thoughtful and responsive to our kid’s need to know her favorite furry pooch was doing ok. I can’t say enough good things about Amaris. We’ll absolutely book again with her, if needed in the future.

Jayne & Rowan are great caretakers of our Schnoodle Polo! They snuggle and love on him as if he’s one of their own and even let him sleep in the bed with them one night! They are flexible and always excited when I request a booking! Definitely recommend!

Svitlana really knows dogs. She walked my dog and sent pics and got to know her quirks quickly. Svitlana also continued with the same house rules we use at home. I will definitely have Pi stay with her again!

James is the best!! Our dog was so excited to stay with him a second time, and James even got him a little gift while we were gone for the holidays. He’s great with communication, and I always appreciate the photo updates. I highly recommend booking with James if you can!

Nathan took care of my sweet dog Pisgah for about a week and it was marvelous! He sent pics of her to me and was communicative. He even took time to work on some training and was able to give her medicine to her as directed. Hoping to hire him again when I need a sitter!

Emily was so responsive from the first message I sent. I requested dates with very little notice and she was able to accommodate. Drop off was so easy. She immediately made Cali feel welcome. I was so glad to receive updates during her stay. I'm sure Cali would be happy to go back for another stay. I would definitely recommend her!!

What a great experience! Jelena and Ian were so thoughtful and sensitive about making sure my somewhat anxious/ high energy dog was comfortable and happy! She got to play in their fenced yard, and had leash walks. They sent regular pictures and updates about how she was doing, and how she was getting along with their family! She was relaxed and happy when I came to pick her up at the end of the trip which was so nice! Would use them again in the future!

This is the 4th or 5th time Luna has stayed with Grace. Luna always comes back happy, healthy, and clean. Grace is a dog whisperer! She does an incredible job attending to Luna's needs, staying in touch, allaying any anxiety or eating issues Luna has, and just loving her. Would recommend Grace unreservedly.

Ashley did an AMAZING job taking care of our very active, not-very-well-behaved 5-month old puppy for a week while we were out of town. Puppies are cute, but they're also a TON of work and Ashley was incredibly attentive to and mindful of our puppy's needs while we were away. She sent us daily updates about the fun excursions they took and also asked great questions that showed us she was really caring for our puppy as if she was her own. Our dog got to do so much, meet so many people, and feel so loved while we were away that she hardly even wanted to come home! It's very clear that Ashley loves and knows how to take care of even the most energetic of dogs, and I would absolutely book her again!

What are some dog-friendly neighborhoods in Charlottesville?

Wherever you go in Charlottesville, you will be able to find neighborhoods with tons of activities and things to do with dogs. North Downtown is within walking distance of the main downtown core and also has access to lots of parks perfect for walking dogs of all sizes and endurance levels. Another neighborhood that is closer to downtown Charlottesville is the Belmont neighborhood. It is close to restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities like festivals, and is great for city walks with dogs. Fry's Spring is also a great neighborhood in Charlottesville and is home to Azalea Park, a 23-acre sprawling park with on-leash trails and a designated off-leash area too.

Why do dog owners love Charlottesville?

Home to the Downtown Mall, one of the largest walkable malls in America, Charlottesville is close to Washington DC (about a two-hour drive) and boasts lots of charm and character that dog owners love. With four distinct seasons, dogs and owners get to experience a true spring, summer, fall and winter, and the many neighborhood parks and communities make walking and playing with dogs easy and fun. History buffs beeline to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's 1769 mansion, while the Virginia Children's Museum is the spot to take the kids for a little hands-on learning. Meanwhile Michie Tavern, established in 1784, is a hearty eatery with serious history, and there's more history to be had at The Rotunda, designed by Jefferson and located on the original grounds of the University of Virginia.

What are some great dog-walking parks in Charlottesville?

Charlottesville dog sitters and owners have lots of places they can take their dogs to for fun adventures. Popular Azalea Park has over 23 acres of fields, trails, and even an off-leash area, so you're sure to find something for every dog there! Greenbrier Park is another large recreational area with walking and biking trails along Meadow Creek. It's perfect for strolling along with small dogs, or taking a jog with larger, more active dogs. Pen Park is Charlottesville's oldest park, and is seen as the go-to park for both country and city residents. A 1.5 mile trail gives dog sitters a nice, quiet place to take dogs for a walk that is still in city limits and within walking distance of other places.

A walk in one of Charlottesville's picturesque parks, a stroll down a neighborhood street - whatever your dog sitter chooses to do with your dog in Charlottesville, you can rest assured your dog is in good hands with Rover!
