“I cannot recommend Ashley highly enough. She is very positive, responsible, and caring. Ashley is always on time and very communicative, and takes great photos, assembling them into daily collages! My Bear Boy's first walker is leaving the country, and I needed to find someone to take over. Ashley exceeded the others whom I met by far. I have every trust in her with my Bear.”
“Kathy is an extraordinary compassionate and caring person, especially when it comes to animals and children. She has shown this over and over again in her career and personal life. I have no doubt that your beloved pet will get the kind of attention and love that you would hope for when leaving them in the care of someone else.”
“I’m so happy for my dogs! Jessica is exactly what we needed, she is clearly skilled with dogs and manages all 3 of mine with no trouble. They love her!”
“I have known Nancy for years but only recently started using her as a dog/house sitter. She is great with my dog (a chihuahua who can be a bit high maintenance) and she's a great house guest. She will make your dog feel very loved and snuggled!”

About: At our home, we pride ourselves on offering a unique and highly engaging experience for every dog that steps through our doors. With over 18 years of dedicated experience in caring for and training dogs from all walks of life, we ensure a safe and stimulating environment for dogs of all temperaments and sizes. What sets us apart is not just our experience, but also our commitment to nurturing their physical and mental well-being. As AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluators and AKC FIT Instructors, we maintain a rigorous regimen of physical activity, covering approximately 30 miles of walks, hikes, and runs weekly, encouraging a healthy lifestyle for all our canine guests. Our home also boasts a securely fenced 1-acre pasture covered yard that the dogs can play in and enjoy with full in and out privileges. In our home, we foster a community where dogs can socialize seamlessly with our well-behaved resident dogs, promoting positive interaction and confidence-building. We are equipped to accommodate the unique needs of every dog, providing spacious crates and beds for their comfort, and the flexibility to separate dogs based on their comfort and social preferences. Safety and well-being are our priorities, substantiated by our certifications in Pet CPR and First Aid, coupled with comprehensive insurance to ensure peace of mind for you. Moreover, we extend the experience by offering additional services such as training and photography during their stay, capturing those blissful moments and developmental milestones. By choosing us, you are not just selecting a sitter but a dedicated family committed to enriching your dog's life with a plethora of experiences, nurturing their growth and happiness in a home away from home. Our days are woven around a meticulously designed routine that guarantees a fulfilling and excellent experience for our canine guests. Each day kick-starts with a refreshing 3+ mile walk in the morning, where a carefully selected group of dogs, based on their individual needs and physical conditions, are given the opportunity to stretch their legs and adventure. Being work-from-home professionals, we can afford to integrate pet care seamlessly into our daily routine, ensuring that the dogs have free access both indoors and outdoors, under watchful supervision to guarantee their safety and well-being. This flexibility allows us to nurture a harmonious environment where the dogs can explore, play, and interact throughout the day. We sprinkle short training sessions or playful breaks across the day, fostering both mental stimulation and physical activity for our guests. As the day transitions to evening, we engage the dogs in another round of shorter walks or hikes to ensure they get the necessary exercise before winding down for the night. Meal times are punctual and aligned with individual preferences, with feeding sessions scheduled for morning and evening, while also accommodating the unique dietary schedules of our guests. At night, the dogs retire to the comfort and security of their crates. For those who are crate-anxious or in the puppy stage, we have the provision of staying in our bedroom to facilitate a sense of calm and allow for necessary night-time outings. This approach not only ensures their comfort but also fosters a close bond, assuring them of a loving presence at all times. Pet care isn't just a routine; it's a labor of love, we prioritize the well-being and happiness of our canine guests, mirroring a home away from home experience filled with affection, safety, and lots of fun. At our home, we prioritize the safety and well-being of all our furry guests. We've taken comprehensive measures to prevent mishaps or accidents at our home: Safety Measures: Our premises are designed to section off different parts of the house and yard to create safe and separate areas as needed. We have around-the-clock surveillance through cameras installed in the main areas of the house and backyard, equipped with alert setups. Additionally, we have secure crates of various sizes available, ensuring that every dog can be separated safely if necessary. Prepared for emergencies, we have a first aid and disaster kit onsite and are in close contact with our local vet and the nearest emergency vet facilities. Introductions and Interactions: When it comes to introducing guest dogs to our own dogs, we proceed with utmost caution and supervision. Initial introductions are facilitated through a gate that allows the dogs to see and smell each other without direct contact, giving them time to settle and get accustomed to each other's presence. We gradually progress, allowing the newcomer to meet our most well-mannered dogs first. These introductions are always supervised, and we rely on our expertise in interpreting canine body language to judge the right pace and time for further interactions. Emergency Protocols: We are certified in Pet CPR and First Aid, ready to respond swiftly in case of any emergency. We have an established emergency plan that covers various situations, including those that might require vet care or evacuation procedures. Environmental Enrichment: Our home offers a stimulating and joyous environment for your pet. Besides our expansive yard, we offer mental stimulation through walks, training sessions, toys, activity mats, and more, ensuring a happy stay for all pets in our care. We are fully committed to providing a nurturing, safe, and trust-worthy environment where your pets can thrive and enjoy their time.
“Lois my mom. Over the course of many years she has taken great care of her own dogs. I have to think that the best dog sitters have owned dogs and instinctively know how take care of them.”
Nicole & Jarrod S.
“Nicole is wonderful with our dog and we love reading Rover cards for each walk. She's so caring - she suggested walking our dog at a cooler time of day to avoid hot pavement on paws. We know our furbabes are safe and happy with her. With the stress of juggling work and travel schedules, we really appreciate that Nicole's communication has been excellent. Highly recommend!”
“Mikayla is awesome. she knows what she is doing and the dogs loved her! She very responsive to text and very flexible to changes we made. Our dogs love Mikayla and we do too!”
“What a great experience. My wife and I were looking for a last minute check in for our fur babies. New to the app we had no idea what to expect. Thankfully, we found Babs S! She was so amazing caring for our lil ones and sending us pictures and giving us updates. It was awesome! We are so thankful she was willing to bend her holiday schedule plans to accommodate us. I would present my highest recommendation for Babs to anyone who is considering using this app. We will Definitely be using her Services again in the future! Thanx Rover!”
“Katya was great. I can tell from all the photos she took that my dog loved her.”
About: I grew up being surrounded by veterinarians, I’ve taken care of all kinds of animals, from frenchies to ducks, for myself, friends and family for the last fifteen years. I’m excited to meet yours! I’m currently working on my own schedule and remotely. I have the flexibility to move my day around to accompany your needs, I could walk your pet at 5 am if you need! Having grown up on a ranch and now living in a city, I am used to all kinds of lifestyles for pets! There’s no animal too big or small, they all deserve endless amounts of love!
“Alexa is amazing with my two 30 lb dogs! They just love her, and always fall right asleep now that I’ve hired her! I wouldn’t let anyone else watch my lil guys”
“Olivia is and has always been a caring and gentle pet owner. She's taken great care of all types of animals, and helped others with their pets as well. She is very responsible, timely and organized, and will be a fantastic pet sitter.”
“Dillon seems to be a dog person by nature—intuitive with my Australian Shepherd and clearly knowledgeable about training and working with dogs with reactive traits. I am so happy to have found her and feel great about working together in the future.”
About: I’ve had pets since I arrived into this world and they’ve been a part of my life ever since. I have many years of experience being a mom (humans and pets!). I will interact and socialize with your pet and love them unconditionally. My life has led me from the ocean to the mountains, allowing me to work from home and create a flexible schedule. I'm available to get outside and help you walk your fur baby. I also live on a large property and can help with drop in day care. I'm available on weekends (F - SU) and also on Wednesday's to walk your babies or stop by your home to care for them. Occasionally, I can help on the remaining days of the week so feel free to ask! I have two fur babies of my own: Felix (11 yr old ) & Dusty (1.5 yr old ) who get along good with other dogs. I'm very easy going and will treat your pet with respect and love. It is my hope that through time, I can build a trusting relationship with your pet alleviating stress while mom and dad are away. I can also be flexible around your schedule if you have odd hours. I do not bring my dogs on walks with your pet however, if you need day care, my boys are present. If my dogs (or my son's dogs!) could speak - they’d tell you they are spoiled with lots and lots of love!
“Dayna always takes great care of our dogs when we go out of town. It makes our vacations so much more relaxing when we know Roscoe and Mickey are in good hands!”
“Very nice person Jinjur really likes her.”
About: I have been a dog lover my whole life. I have a wonderfully trained chi who is truly the light of my life. I love teaching dogs new tricks, challenging their mind and getting them great exercise! I know that above all, love and patience is the best training tool. I believe that dogs have feelings and as humans in charge of our furry friends we must be sensitive at all times to their individual needs. I look forward to meeting you and your fur baby!!
“Ashley is amazing with dogs she is an absolute dog lover I’ve never seen anyone care so well for any pet in my life. She cared for my Winnie dog a few times and took her in like her own. I felt so good leaving my sweet dog with her as I knew Ashley would give her the same quality love and care as I would. I highly recommend Ashley and am sure she is the best choice for doggie care!”
“Cydney has an uncanny perception for animals in general, in particular dogs. She has a committed history of dog watching, walking and care for all breeds including home care while owners are away for extended periods of time. Her love of dogs shows through gentle care with loving discipline when necessary. Dogs seem tor recognize this in her presence. Truly someone you can trust in all manner of employment.”
