Joshua always goes above and beyond. Our dogs know this as well as we do and they genuinely love him. We know that in our absence our wishes and requests will be honored and that our furry family members will feel happy and loved and be safe. Highly recommended.

Sidney was absolutely amazing!! It was our first time using Rover and she put us at ease the moment we met for a little meet-and-greet with our crew. She sent videos and pictures everyday which we absolutely loved. We had two dogs and a cat, all with their own special quirks, and Sidney was so great with all three. Our vacation was stress-free knowing she was there and she left the house in perfect order for when we returned. We can’t recommend her enough (in fact, we bragged about her to the family our entire trip 😂) and will absolutely be booking her again.

Aubrey made sure she took my dog outside to go the bathroom. Played with him and gave him a lot of belly scratches. She fed and made sure his water bowl was always full. Definitely book her!

Angel is amazing! She is kind, a great communicator, and reliable. Our dog had a little bit of an upset tummy from seperation anxiety when we left and Angel cared and looked out for her. We were out of state and it was really nice knowing we had someone trusted to care for her while we were away. Highly recommend Angel!

About: As a dog owner of 12 years I have all the qualifications and experience to care for your animal(s). I grew up in a household with 6 dogs who were the highlights of our life. I walk my own two dogs daily and provide them with the best care to my ability. Looking forward to meeting/caring for your pet/pets. I am an online college student so this gives me an open schedule when it comes to proving pet care. I have an open schedule and am willing to accommodate to any needs. I have a fenced area in my condo where your dog will have space to use the restroom, run, etc. My two dogs are extremely friendly. Brody is a puppy so he has lots of energy, if your dog needs space I’m able to separate them during the duration of your pets stay. As far as in-home care, I will provide whatever care necessary. I’m able to walk, take them out, feed, check-ins, night stays, etc (just ask)

About: Anyone can say they love dogs. Dogs are just so easy to love. But not everyone an say that they can give dogs the love and care that they deserve. What sets me apart from other pet sitters is my attention to detail. About 5 years ago, my dog Toto developed cataracts in his eyes and needed surgery so retain his sight. After his eye surgery, he needed several different eye drops every day to maintain his vision and keep his eyes healthy. For 5 years, I have made sure that his eyes received the medication they needed so that he can remain the spunky, lazy, happy dog that he is. I have also often taken care of my previous neighbor's elderly dog who also needed regular, scheduled medication. Without fail, he received his medication on time, even if I did have to wrap them up in a treat. If you want peace of mind when you have to leave your furry friends for a while, I'll provide the care that you need and they deserve! I am currently working full time (8am-5pm) but I can make short visits in between my work hours if needed. I am also available after 5pm on days that I am needed. I am always willing to tailor my services based on what your needs are. Whether you pet is a finicky eater, a shy one in the bathroom, or just needs regular medication, I can make sure your pet's quirks are well taken care of so that you don't have to worry while you are gone. I also provide regular photo updates along with my services so that you can be assured that your furry friends are happy, healthy, and thriving!

Karli used to babysit my children and my two dogs; a yorkshire terrier and a jack russel terrier. She was so friendly, energetic, patient and protective of my pets. She was only paid to watch my dogs at home and to walk them, but Karly would always go the extra mile: playing with them in the backyard, taking them to the park, feeding them and grooming them. She was kind enough to get them gifts on their birthdays. She was an excellent sitter with children and dogs.

About: Hi, my name is Matthew. I'm a proud USMC veteran and a passionate animal lover. I have one adorable cat named Luna, whom I rescued from a heavy equipment yard. She is one of the sweetest cats in the whole world. I've been caring for animals since I was 8 years old, and my love for them has only grown stronger over the years. **Pet Care Experience**: With a lifetime of experience caring for a wide variety of animals, I bring a unique and dedicated approach to pet care. From picking up poop and feeding pets to walking two large Black Labradors simultaneously, I've done it all. My family has raised a range of animals, including pygmy goats, cows, pigs, ducks, and chickens. This diverse experience has equipped me with the skills to handle pets of all sizes and temperaments. **What Sets Me Apart**: 1. **Veteran Dedication**: As a USMC veteran, I bring discipline, reliability, and a strong sense of duty to every pet care task.

This background allows me to understand and meet the unique needs of each pet, whether it's a playful puppy or a senior dog needing extra care. 3. **Patience and Positive Reinforcement**: I have a lot of patience with animals, and I believe in making a positive difference in their lives. I excel in training and managing routy dogs, ensuring they develop good habits through positive reinforcement techniques. 4. **Trustworthiness**: My neighbors and many people throughout my life have entrusted me with watching over their homes, plants, and animals while they were away.

Without a doubt, Nathan has proven himself to be an exceptional dog sitter in every way. His adeptness with my two energetic pit mixes was truly impressive, as he not only ensured their well-being but also formed a genuine connection with them. Nathan's respectfulness extended not only to my dogs but also to my home, which remained impeccably clean under his care. Nathan's reliability and professionalism were outstanding; I felt completely at ease knowing he was looking after my pets and my house. His regular updates and genuine love for my dogs were truly heartwarming. I highly recommend Nathan to anyone in need of a dog sitter!
