My dog always comes back happy and well exercised when he stays with Lawrencia. I was in a bind and she even helped by picking him up from my house. She communicates when she has him, and her daughter loves to play with him. I will continue to check if she is available if I ever need a sitter!

I had a fantastic experience using Jordan as a Rover! She is extremely friendly, trustworthy, and communicative. I never had to worry about my dog as I received regular updates throughout his stay. She went above and beyond to make sure that he was getting lots of exercise and play time. I would recommend Jordan to anyone!

Dawn was incredible. From the warm welcome upon my last minute business trip in which Atticus couldn’t join. Dawn provided fresh chicken and daily walks and her updates were detailed and lovely. Such a wonderful experience. Will be back. Thank you!

Lynsie always does wonderful with my dog! Even when there might be other dogs in her care, she always makes sure that everyone is comfortable with each other and that they get along. I always get many updates and my dog always has the best time at Lynsie’s home.

Cindy is an amazing petsitter, she did an outstanding job with my dog, and keeps me informed (the pictures were so great), because of that, I feel so much more relaxed and able to enjoy my trip since I know that Cindy is caring so well for my dog. Thank you so much, Cindy.

My chocolate lab had an amazing time there with them. They cut me updated on his day and sent pictures. Send messages to ask for permissions for different activities which I thought was amazing. If I'm near the Columbus Ohio area I will definitely choose Jacob again.

Hallie was awesome with our dog for a long weekend trip. She has a nice clean home with a fenced in yard. We felt really comfortable the whole time and did not worry about Foss at all. He did great with her pups and it’s obvious she cares so much about our dog’s well-being which is exactly what we want when leaving our dog with someone. She was quick to respond to all of our messages, too.

We had a great experience booking with Michelle & Nicholas! We did a meet and greet to see how our dog Flynn and their dog Waffles would get along, and they became good buddies! Michelle & Nicholas sent daily updates with lots of photos. They have a fenced in backyard that our Flynny loved exploring. We would highly recommend & plan to book again!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Fernanda & Bruno. They kept us updated with text and pictures throughout our puppy's stay with them. I highly recommend and trust them to take care of our fur baby and will definitely request their services when I need a pet sitter. Thank you Fernanda and Bruno for giving our baby so much love and attention.

Ellen was awesome! She is very kind and friendly. She communicated very well before and during my fur baby's stay with her. She gave lots of updates with pictures which was great. This was our first time leaving him and she made the experience awesome. I would highly recommend her and would definitely love to use her services again!

About: I have taken care of dogs all of my life by volunteering at a nearby shelter in my hometown. I finally got the chance to own one of my own just 1.5 years ago when I moved out of OSU dorms. I love everything about dogs and love the chance to walk them around OSU’s beautiful campus. I’d love the opportunity to walk and play with your fur baby. I currently work only 3 days a week full-time hours. My fiance and I have the same schedule. So on days when we don’t work, my fiancé and I both will be able to spend the entire day with your pup! We have a dog of our own who will love to play with your puppy as well! We have a fur baby of our own which will keep your puppy company all day! I have a separate room with a cage where I can safely keep your dog if need be. I would happily take your puppy/dog on as far or as short of a walk as you require! My fiancé and I both will be keeping an eye on and spend time with your precious puppy.

I couldn’t have asked for a better person to watch our beloved Teddy! He was a rescue and is a little anxious and Katie made him feel at home. She sent me pictures and updates throughout the day. This is my first rover experience and it was great!
