House Sitting in Collins Garden, San Antonio
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Frances was a wonderful sitter and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy person to care for your pets. Frances was great at keeping in touch with us and sent us the perfect number of updates on Abbey the dog. Abbey can get a little 'Eeyore-y' when we're away but Frances was super patient with her and just let her be her usual sleepy self. It was such a relief knowing someone responsible was watching Abbey. It allowed us to actually enjoy our weekend, stress free. We would happily recommend Frances to any other person looking for a housesitter/walker/animal friend. She was fantastic!”
“Sara did an awesome job at taking care of my little and sassy Pomeranian :) Every night she sent me a summary of their day and photos of my pom. Thank you Sara for all you did for us.”
“She was an absolute gem. I had a last minute trip planned, and I had to make arrangements for my two high maintenance dogs. Erica house sat for me last minute and did amazing with my two huskies. When I got home, my huskies were tired (that’s an impressive feat on its own), and my house was clean of husky dust. She definitely didn’t have to sweep and whatnot but she did! I would book her again in a heartbeat.”
“Truc was great! Very attentive, considerate and communicative. I recommend her to anyone and will definitely have her watch the dogs in the future.”
“We had never left our almost one year old puppy with a house sitter before. She bonded with Matthew immediately and she was cared for in the best way. I highly recommend Matthew and we hope that we can use him again! Thanks Matthew!”
About: As a former middle school educator, I understand that patience and love are key to any interaction. I’ve grown up with pets since I was 8 years old, and I’ve formally dog walked friends and families pets for five years. I keep in touch with all of them as if they were my own. I believe dogs deserve all of the love, patience, and fun. I have experience with small to medium dogs the most, but have also built meaningful relationships with larger dogs. This includes bathing, walking, feeding (and hand feeding), snuggling, and more. My current longest client is 4 years strong and I have even taken them to vet appointments as well as helped the owners research and find the best pet insurance for them. I have also experienced losing a loved dog and know the pain it brings; this reminds me to always give everything I can when in the presence of your fur baby. Whether your baby requires a little more attention or just needs a simple check in, I am here to help and follow your guidelines! BOARDING AND DAYCARE REQUESTS: if you book boarding or daycare in my home, please know I will not have any other pet around. I want to ensure top safety and that your pet receives 100% of my attention. I currently work full time but I am available almost all weekday evenings, weekends, and holidays (except Christmas and NY). I live in an apartment but it is located in a large park with plenty of exercise space and greenery. I will make sure your baby can still receive their exercise and potty time safely! Note to clients further than 12 miles: A $10 travel fee will be added for mileage/gas if you are located farther than 12 miles. When you schedule me, I’ll have plenty of time to be with your fur baby! Please be specific about their needs and yours. I will gladly follow up with any questions to ensure my service is to highest standards. Safety and trust are the utmost priority. While I do have experience with reactive dogs, I truly believe that specific boundaries and safety measures vary on a case by case basis. I will happily review your dogs profile and speak to you to ensure a safe plan is in place before our visit!
“Dana was great! We loved the photo updates of our cat and dog. Ellie are dog seemed very happy to have her to play with and we loved having her stay at our home.”
“Sarah was Awesome! She was very accommodating. We had never used the Rover app and had never done anything like this before. Our plans had fell through for our doggies being watched and this was all last minute as we were in a bind for Thanksgiving holidays. Sarah was available, very helpful and expeditious in meeting with us last minute and watching our girls. She took great care of our dogs and our home too. She kept us updated with pictures of our girls. I would recommend her as well as use her again!😃👏🏼”
“Amanda is attractive and personable. She came on time for the meet and greet, listened carefully to the information I gave her and took time to interact with the dogs. She sent pictures and comments multiple times a day while I was gone. She took the initiative to deal with one dog’s GI problems, letting me know about it. She left the house in great condition. I would recommend her highly.”
“Ericka calmed all my fears about leaving my reactive pup with her! She sent me lots of pictures and just took such good care of them! My dogs loved Ericka 🥰 (I’m only begrudgingly leaving this review bc I selfishly want to keep her for myself!)”
“Julieanna did a fantastic job housesitting for us over the holidays. She sent lots of pictures and updates of our dogs every day! She left our house better than what we left and our dogs seemed very happy and healthy when we returned. I appreciate her willingness to be flexible when our dates had to change due to flight issues.”
“Sarah was so easy to communicate with! I got tons of updates, and she was very good with my spoiled cat Athena. I came home to a happy, healthy cat and a house that was in exactly the same condition I left it. I'm new to the area and had to find all new pet sitters, I'm grateful that I've now met Sarah and look forward to working with her again”
“I'm so thankful for Mackenzi! She was able to step-in to house sit my dog last minute after another Rover house sitter cancelled on their booking halfway through providing their house-sitting booking. Mackenzie provided the care and followed the schedule agreed upon for my dog. I have already booked Mackenzie again for another house-sitting booking and would highly recommend her to anyone needing a house-sitter for their pet.”
About: I’ve taken care of both dogs and cats since I was around 8 years old. I was in charge of bathing, cleaning, training, and veterinary visits all the way through high school too. I have a deep love for all pets and genuinely miss taking care of those sweet babies! I currently am a full time college student, meaning I have a full schedule on Monday and Wednesday from afternoon to about 6 pm. Every day throughout the week other than those two days, is completely free and available for fun and care of pets! I have a bunch of beautiful parks right outside of my apartment that would be perfect for walks and potty breaks and meeting friendly neighborhood dogs and cats!
“Claudio is such a great guy! He took care of my 6 year old 10 pound dog and she was really happy with him. He walked her around every morning and afternoon and night and he fed her exactly what i told her. 100% recommend!😁”
“Mel was very professional and did a great job babysitting my dog! Thanks!”
About: I’ve grown up around both cats and dogs my whole life, and love to take care of them! A favorite trick of mine is using chamomile tea to disinfect wounds/scratches. I currently work in an office downtown, with flexible hours that give me time to play with your pups! I’m free lunches and weeknights, and am flexible all day on the weekends. I love long walks and know how important play-time is for a healthy pup. Popping by to check on your pets and your house multiple times a day is not a problem.
About: I grew up with small dogs, Bob the Pom-Yorkie is 16 and going strong! My sweet girl Indi is three and has taught me so much about how regular walks, watching body language, and building trust improve a dogs life. I’ve done 9 months of personnel dog training so I’m happy to keep up your dogs training or work on new tricks (not a professional trainer). I’ve watched dogs of all sizes and love learning about each dogs unique personality. I am currently a full time student so I have tons of availability for daily walks, house sitting, or just checking in on your furry friend. I am very alert when walking dogs and will never put your dog in a situation they or I am uncomfortable with. If they have a regular route they love to take, let me know! I will respect your home like my own and make sure any house rules for your pets are kept while I am there.
“Megan was great!! Answered me right away, always sent updates, left things super clean and my dog and cat seemed super happy! Would def recommend Megan to watch your fur babies!!!”
“As I told Marina, “We got home and the dogs were very happy, but didn’t go bonkers and that’s awesome! Thank you very much :) “. Seriously, I was relieved they were so relaxed!”
