Abby was so wonderful staying with our dog, Rizzo! She was responsive and communicative each day letting us know our guy was in great hands. We’ll be sure to book her again next time we’re looking for a sitter!

Laura is amazing! Our dog gets nervous around new people and she was so accommodating to schedule a meet and greet before our trip to put him at ease. He was so well taken care of and our house was very clean when we returned. We very much appreciated the updates and photos while we were away as well!

Nancy came to meet with us twice before we left for vacation to meet our animals and become familiar with our home. She is thoughtful, caring, and dependable. Nancy gave us peace of mind while we were out of the country and cared for our animals and home better than we could have ever imagined possible with being our first time using Rover. Thank you so much!

Andrea was wonderful! Hank and Gracie were well taken care of and they loved her. It was our first time having a sitter in our home and it was so nice to be able to leave our babies where they feel safe and comfortable. We would love to have her back again.

Noah is great! Quick response, on-time, and well mannered. He housesat and watched our two dogs. They seemed to love him. One of dogs is epileptic and gets medications several times a day…Noah was on it. We were very happy with his care.

Sidney was amazing with our two dogs. She was great at sending updates and it was clear she was careful about following guidance around their care. She was also very courteous about checking in with decisions around the house and left everything very tidy. We are so grateful to have had Sidney in this role!

About: I have owned pets all my life - I love both cats and dogs! Throughout high school, I worked at a dog boarding and daycare facility for 5 years where I provided daily exercise, feeding, medications, and spa services for up to 30 dogs at a time. I’ve been accepted to graduate school in the fall, so I’m currently working part-time through Rover while I prepare to start classes. Given that my schedule is so open, I can be very flexible for last-minute bookings! I have a reactive dog of my own, so unfortunately I am not able to host pets in my home. However, when visiting a client’s space, I follow the pet’s lead to ensure they feel comfortable.

So happy I found Jess to watch my sweet Rosie girl while I was gone overnight! I will definitely be hiring her again. She was great to communicate with from setting up a meet and greet to giving me multiple updates while I was gone. In every picture update she sent, my dog looked happy and relaxed and that's all I can ask for. I highly recommend Jess to take care of your dog!

Lacey has taken excellent care of my two Boston terriers on a regular basis for years now! One is a senior who needs carried up and down stairs with assorted health issues that come with age including needing eyedrops and different meds. The other is a high energy little guy who needs constant cuddles, playing & attention. Both absolutely adore her and I know they get the best possible care with her! I travel often for work & she’s the only person I feel comfortable leaving them with. She’s also incredible with cats of any age & temperament. Your fur kid will thank you for having her come hang out with them. Couldn’t reccomend higher.

Tori was an excellent sitter for my first big trip of the year out of the US. Of course my trip coincided with the biggest snowstorm of the winter so far, and I was too far away to be of any real help. Tori made sure my dogs were safe and comfortable, and went the extra step of ensuring my house survived the extreme weather. She was very communicative and kept me informed about the weather, house and dogs. We had one incident where one of my dogs got into some non-dog friendly snacks, but Tori was on it! She informed me, and contacted a local vet as a precaution. All was well in the end. I highly recommend Tori for your pet care needs!
