Our pup Winnie absolutely LOVES Sara and has so much fun with her. We will definitely reach out to Sara again in the future!”
About: I have one dog and bird that I take care of with my family. A Newfoundland and African Grey parrot in my household. I make sure they can kept safe, healthy and loved, as for will I with your own animals. I can work usually Tuesday-Friday, weekends + Monday can be extremely busy for me in my personal life. 7 am to 7 pm, unless overnight to look after and take care for. Your pup's comfort and safety are my top priority. Plenty of walks, feeding, play time etc will be fulfilled. I can adapt to their routine in an instant for their comfortable familiarity.
“Barb is amazing!!! Every time she gets home, Lola gets super excited because she knows is time for her walk! Barb is sweet and very kind with my baby!! 100% recommended!!”
“I hired Hunter to house sit my 2 dogs over a weekend and he was phenomenal. He was frequently sending me check-ins with a bunch of photos and videos of my dogs playing, which I really appreciated. I’m bilingual, and my dogs are mostly used to Spanish commands, since that what we mostly used. He was able to help us continue to enforce those command words since he’s also bilingual. Our dogs weren’t completely house trained at this point but he made sure to clean up all the mess, even went as far as mopping the house for us. All in all I he did a great job and we still use him to this day. 10/10 would recommend.”
About: I have always had pets growing up as a child and my love for them has grown into my adulthood even more. I have a passion for learning and understanding different types of animals. My experience in Pet Care is from having my own pets and caring for family, friends and volunteering over the years I'm currently working part-times so I have extra time left to take care of beautiful fur animals. Being around dogs and cats make me happy I know very well how to handle very large dogs, especially big ones. I have received courses from very reputable German Shepherd police dog trainers
“An absolute wonderful person to watch after your pet! She was so loving toward Charlie and he had an absolutely blast with her while I was out of town. Big thanks to Theresa!”
“I have known Mallory for over 2 years now. Among many attributes she possesses, politeness, happiness, and caring are the ones that stand out. As far as her animal love goes, Mallory has an Australian Sheppard named Baylee and a Corgi named Marcie as a pet. If you know Mallory in person, you can attest that her love for animals is the greatest. She will always make time from her busy schedule to take them out for walks or other activities, such as meeting other dogs or going for a swim at the beach. Furthermore, she is always very attentive to their health and takes them regularly to the vet to ensure that her pets are in good shape. Mallory is a great people person, she is always willing to meet new people and treat them with respect. Mallory would be a perfect candidate for caring for your pets because she is loving, caring, and very respectful to other people and pets.”
“William loves dogs, he has since he was a kid. Currently he is a doting dog Dad to a rescue dog named Artemis. He makes sure he is groomed, entertained and well fed- going so far as to make dog food from scratch when Artemis was ill. William has a love and kindness for animals that makes me feel comfortable knowing they are in his care.”
“Chris is very good with my two dogs. We always feel like our dogs are well taken care of while we are gone. They always seem so happy and content when we get home. We will definitely be using his services again.”
“Amber just started walking my 80lb Bernedoodle and he gives all hi fives and a bunch of wagging tails and kisses. We look forward to having Amber continue taking such great care of Phinda.”
About: *LOW NUMBER BOARDER & OFFERS GROOMING* I am a an occupational therapist who is a homebody and loves to care for animals. I am flexible and I enjoy being around animals as I was raised in a home with dogs and they are apart of my family. I own my own home in a safe neighborhood with a fenced in backyard. I have begun to groom my own dogs. Please refer to my photos for their coats. I am low number boarder to ensure your dog is not overwhelmed and receives more 1:1 time. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know the families I work with to build a relationship! My strengths include: Responsible, Communicative, Honest, Trustworthy, and flexible. I am a full-time occupational therapist who works less than a mile from home. I come home on my lunch break to let my own dogs out. T/R I have more flexible hours to care for dogs as well as I am available on Saturday and some Sundays. I have a fenced in backyard and I have two dogs of my own to keep your dog accompanied and socialized. I can crate them per your request to ensure safety is had if need be.
About: I’ve been taking care of dogs and cats since I was real little maybe around 10 years old. From walking, sitting, feeding, and playing. I have about 6 months of senior care… I’m currently unemployed. So I’m available all throughout the weekday and weekends at any time you guys will need me. I’m looking into this being full time work. I have a fenced yard and 1 friendly black lab and 3 adorable cats to keep your fur baby company. If your baby needs to be crated I can do that.
About: I have a degree in zoology specializing in animal husbandry. I have experience working with dogs with a wide variety of behavioral and health issues such as blindness, deafness, and aggression issues. With me, your dog will get only the best care. If your dog needs 4 walks a day, I can do it. If your dog only eats form your hands, than I will feed them as such. I am familiar with the kenneling system and personally think it can be done better. At home, your dog will experience less stress and will be in an environment that they are familiar with and the routine they know and love. If you choose me, you will be only getting the best care. I can’t wait to work with you
“I’d highly recommend Erin N., as she has always been very responsible & truly loving when taking care of her own cats & dogs over the years. She also has a vet tech degree from MSU because of her love of animals, so I know that you’d be happy to have her working for you, & she would love this job a lot!!!”
“Lauren is a dog whisperer 🐶❤️🐶”
About: What started out as babysitting quickly turned to dog and cat sitting as parents and friends saw the love that I have for children and animals. As a recent WMU grad, I am looking to fill my time with fulfilling work that I love. What’s better than hanging with animals? When I’m not nannying or working as a behavioral therapist, I enjoy spending time with our furry friends. Because I live in an apartment, I prefer to go to clients homes and care for pets where they feel most comfortable and at home. Though I do have a large yard and gated dog park where I live!
“Delaney has grown up with dogs. She’s very attentive and loves animals deeply. She’s also very responsible having taken care of our family pets on her own while were out of town. She is able to prepare special food when necessary, keep wounds clean and administer medicine when necessary. She will make a an excellent dog walker and pet sitter.”
“I’ve never met someone that is more interested in the health and well-being of all animals, big and small. Hanna grew up with two large dogs whom she loves. She regularly attends the reptile expo in Kalamazoo to learn more about various snakes, spiders, and other insects. She even goes out of her way to understand which species may be invasive in the wild to better support her local ecosystem. I’ve seen her gain the trust of her professors to house sit and care for a range of different animals, all of which she has done a fantastic job. She understands that pets don’t just need food and water, but attention, love, and play as well. If there is a pet that needs to be looked after and you don’t want to worry, there is no one better for the role than Hanna.”
About: Hi! My name is Destiny, I have such a strong love and passion for our fur babies and pet care is what I will always want to do long-term. I have been working on Rover for a little while but also have other previous experiences from owning various pets of my own such as dogs, cats, bunnies and fish. As well as working at a veterinary clinic, volunteering and fostering at rescues. I can’t wait to meet all of your amazing animal friends and take great care of them while you're away. I'm currently only working part-time so I'll have plenty of time to play and care for your fur babies! Days unavailable due to other obligations will be reflected upon the calendar provided through Rover. Please don't be afraid to ask either way! :) I will keep your fur babies safe by keeping in touch frequently including pictures and/or videos. Following all directions provided by the owner. Keep them active with plenty of play time as well as supervised outdoor play time, walks and if your fur baby is in need of another pup friend I do have a very friendly/social mini goldendoodle pup of my own I can bring by for some supervised playtime (he would need to be brought by to the meet and greet to ensure the safety of both pups)!
