“Updates were great and she seemed to work well with my dog. Loved everything about this and will definitely continue requesting.”
“I have known Jess the majority of my life and throughout those 30 something years she has always been an animal lover. Growing up always had well taken care of cats in her home, loved nature (snakes, lizards and any other little creature lol). As we got older her love for dogs came about and she now has 3 of her own. All 3 of her dogs are her world and are so well taken care of. She would be the first person I'd go to if I personally needed help taking care of my own dog. (And have asked her multiple times to come let her out, give her love if I'm away from home for a period of time) 100% trustworthy and awesome with animals!”
“Quick response, kind and professional. My dogs did well upon first meet up and the reassurance my pets are taken care of when having to work a long day. Thank you for the photo update and bringing in my package.”
“Brett took care of our two cats while we were away for Labor Day weekend. It was so nice to know someone would drop in, spend a little time with them, and feed them. He was reliable, communicative, friendly, AND sent us pictures!”
“Diamonds was absolutely AMAZING! She took wonderful care of our very young Saint Bernard puppy, Phyllis, during the day while we worked. She communicated well and left Phyllis very happy. I will definitely be calling on her again :)”
“Christy was amazing! She was available on short notice and was able to give a (new) antibiotics to a 10 month old kitty who didn’t like the first two doses. She was super sweet to connect with and seemed to be sweet with my kitties. She was responsible with my home and easy to work with. I would book her again for sure!”
“I cannot say enough good things about Rochelle. She has been amazing with Henry. I get pictures/updates after every visit and it really puts me at ease knowing Henry is in good hands. Rochelle is also very responsive and super easy to work with. She is a great person and Henry looks forward to seeing her every day!”
“Emily took great care of our sweet little cat. She sent pictures each drop in, clear and detailed updates, and went above and beyond when watching our cat. We will definitely be back to Emily!”
“Sam was awesome! She drove through the MN winter storm to take care of my babies and I’m so grateful for that. I love her enthusiasm and dedication to caring for animals. Sam was in constant communication with me while I was away and I feel better knowing that my fur babies are in good hand. Thanks Sam!”
“They were great!!! Understood my cats illness and communicated clearly and precisely everyday on their visit. Spent time for extra pets in my cats favorite areas and changed the items/feeding amounts when asked. Will definitely book again!!!!!”
“Thank you so much! 5 stars!”
“Katherine did a great job checking in on our dogs. I loved the fact that she took pics every time she stopped by. It was nice to see those old dogs looking content. Extra bonus, she even brought in our Amazon package, cat litter which weighed 40 lbs!”
“Ally has been the best and most reliable pet sitter we have ever found, and we are so lucky to live just down the street. I have been telling her to sign up on Rover for over a year now and I am so glad she did. She treats our Bella like her own dog, she sends us pictures of Bella playing with Chance, going on walks and playing in the dog pool. We know Bella is being loved and cared for when we are away when she is with Ally.”
“Tiya is great with dogs! She has spent a lot of time with my dog walking around the twin cities and bringing him to many exciting spots including the stone arch bridge, west river parkway, breweries, loring park, sculpture garden, lake Bde Maka ska, lake Harriet, lake of the isles, cedar lake, minnehaha creek, victory memorial parkway, grand ground round, and everywhere in between! She always spoils him wherever they go and he comes home happy as a clam!”

“Thank you for entertaining my puppy! Loved the pics and your flexibility!”
“Maddy is very conscientious and this makes me quite comfortable leaving my pet in her care. She follows instructions well, so I know that my pet's physical needs will be taken care of. She also takes pleasure in spending time with animals, which means that my pet receives just as much — if not more — love in my absence.”
“Amanda provided great in-home care visits for my cat Bernie. Her visits were on time and her care was complete. I would be glad to hire Amanda for any type of animal care.”
“Nova was able to step in last minute and drop in on our two cats. She was extremely kind and professional, and immediately gave love to our cats. She sent several pictures and a detailed review. Such a relief to find someone close to home! We will definitely book again with Nova.”
“Mackenzie was simply wonderful! She was very respectful of our home as she stayed here 5 days, 4 nights. She left our house clean and the pets loved. She was great with our very difficult and sometimes unwelcoming pets and we will absolutely use her again!”
