As always- Whitney and Ryan were awesome. They’re so patient with Henry and Henry LOVES their dogs and little girl. Ryan deserves a massive shoutout because my dog burrowed himself under their back deck for like 3 hours. Ryan army crawled underneath and spent soooo much time trying to coax my dog out (it was late too, around 1130pm when my dog came out). Can’t say enough good things.

She was amazing with my dog!! She took time to play with her individually and my dog looked just as comfortable with her as my dog is with me. 10/10 highly recommend!

Halley was great! We could tell our pup had a great time. She kept us updated with pix and vids of him enjoying play time with the other dogs. She even sent him home with a new harness! We will definitely be booking again.

Eileen was fantastic! As soon as we met Eileen, we knew our baby would be in good hands while we were away! She really put our minds at ease and sent us pics or a video each day while we were away. Scout was clearly having a good time while we were away and was well taken care of by Eileen!

Kelly is a marvelous dog sitter! He is very kind, pleasant, and his love of dogs is obvious from the way Koko was loved and cared for. My vacation was much more enjoyable because I knew my Koko was having a wonderful vacation, too.

Our dog had so much fun with Chad and family. We were given regular updates on all the action. He is completely worn out and missing his new friend, Sandy. Thanks Chad!!

We love Debbie! She’s the best! I got several photos and updates during Lucy’s stay which made being away from her a little easier. We live close by, and Lucy always wants to stop to say hello when we walk the neighborhood! Definitely will use again and highly recommend to others!

Jessica was just amazing! My dog loved her and her fur babies!! She was exactly the perfect fit for my older sometimes grumpy girl. Jessica was easy to communicate with in the app. and very responsive. Overall, the best experience and I felt she far exceeded my expectations as this was my first Rover pet experience. Highly recommend her!!

Maggie was AWESOME. This was my first time leaving my furbabies with someone else and I would recommend her 100x’s. She sent pictures and kept me up to date, which I LOVED. My dogs loved her and her dog as well, which made it easier to not worry. I will definitely be going back to her if needed.

Erika was outstanding! She went above and beyond caring for my pets. My home was clean and fresh and that was after 7 days with several dogs. When she came over to return our key, I was so pleased to see even my standoffish Yorkie interacting and excited to see her. She's the doggie whisperer for sure. I highly recommend, Erika!

Sometimes there should be an option for more than 5 stars, and this is definitely one of them. Michael and his wife may just be the kindest couple I have ever met. They were incredibly kind, accommodating, and communicative. They live in a lovely and comfortable area and have such a beautiful home. My baby Simba completely loved his stay and was such a happy boy when I came to pick him up. I usually have a very difficult time with leaving my baby behind with anyone but I didn’t feel nearly as worried after drop off with Michael. I will absolutely be contacting him in the future any time I need a sitter, I couldn’t imagine Simba staying anywhere else.

About: My passion for animals goes back to when I was just a young child!!! It’s a trait I inherited from my mother ❤️ I’m available for dog boarding, doggy day care, drop-in’s, dog bathing, etc. I would love to care for your baby and if there is anything specific or special request please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am generally very timely in responding. I currently stay at home with our two young children so my only *REQUIREMENT* is that your dog is kid friendly! I hope you can understand. We are home 99% of the time. We have a large fenced in front yard and live on family land so we have lots of space to roam. If your dog loves to throw a ball we have plenty of space for them to run. If they need to be leashed or you prefer they stay inside the fence that is not a problem either. We have 2 medium/large dogs and a free roaming cat named Tuna.

She communicated with me every day and sent pictures to let me know how they were doing, I will definitely be taking my fur babies to her in the future! Very reliable and patient sitter :)
