“Sydney is so sweet with animals! She has helped me walk my (now grown) dalmatian puppy since he was little and she always knows what to do. Super flexible and understanding when it comes to coordinating stuff! Love!”
“Erin is really helpful and responsible. She takes a great care of my dog and my dog absolutely likes her. I will recommend her to anyone who needs pet sitting!”
“Julia is absolutely the best! We met for a meet and greet beforehand and my dog instantly fell in love and was comfortable with her. She sends detailed updates and photos during their walks. I know my pup is in great hands which puts my mind to ease. Super thankful to have found her on Rover and would highly recommend her to others”
“Communication with Bryon was excellent. To us this is important and it extends to the dogs🐕🦺🦮!”
“Lisa, my rescue 5-year-old corgi-Jack Russell, and I were housemates for a few months, so I saw her love and care of dogs daily. She was always very careful, kind, and attentive to Spock, even when she was working from home. She was solicitous, refilling his water bowl when it got low and I didn't notice, and a confident loose leash dog walker when she'd offer to take Spock out. She'd always check with me if he could have treats, and did basic obedience with Spock when dishing out the cookies (sit, lie down, etc.). When we'd go for walks-- and Lisa walks a lot, a higher energy pooch's dream parent!-- she was always patient with Spock's frequent marking and sniffing stops, and she kept an eye out for potential chewing/choking hazards (dead crabs! deer scat!) on the sidewalks and trails. I was always shocked and delighted that even when Lisa was in a hurry to get somewhere, she'd dash across the street to give my neighbor's 1 year old Golden Retriever, Lucky, some playtime and belly rubs, since he's frequently out in his Invisible Fence looking lonely. Lisa is also a regular pet sitter for two of her friends’ dogs up the coast and talks of both of them fondly. She’s an amazing pet caregiver to dogs of all shapes and sizes and is also familiar with cat-dog siblingships from her many years with a big dog and two cats. Although I didn't know Lisa when she had Bella, the beloved golden/lab mix and Good Girl who passed away two years ago after a good long life since puppyhood with Lisa, I've been fortunate to hear many stories about Bella's upbringing and life with Lisa, and privy to the videos and photos Lisa made of Bella and keeps on her phone and prominently displayed in her home. Bella was introduced to neighborhood dogs, cats, and humans, and greatly beloved by all, so much so the neighbors had a framed photo of Bella in their hallway! I credit some of this to Lisa being a doting, responsible, and generous dog mom. Lisa was so devoted to Bella that she contracted integrative medicine practitioners in addition to conventional veterinary care to ease Bella's pain when she got sick and help her to have the best end of life possible. Trading stories about obedience school, crate training, potty training, food and treat types, grooming, and daily life with Bella compared to my own rescue dog, I'm completely convinced Lisa is a caring, responsive caregiver who builds in plenty of structure, healthy boundaries, socialization, play, love, and snuggle space using her years of knowledge. Lisa is a bona fide dog person who understands safety and love. She would have done anything for Bella from 8 weeks old to her end and beyond, and I'm sure will do anything to build the best, healthiest, longest life for the next dog who comes into her life through Rover or otherwise.”

“Harrison has been instrumental in our continuing efforts to socialize our sweet but shy German Shepherd rescue dog! His ability to capture her smiling during walks bring joy to our days when we are away for work, knowing she’s well cared for - Thanks, Harrison!”
“Aaron took great care of Daisy for a full week. He was quick to communicate if something seemed off with her and I knew she was in great hands!”
“We are very happy with Eliot! She is very caring and competent. Eliot was also able to schedule us in on very short notice. We loved the updates and photos. Thx Eliot!!”
“Terra has provided care for my dog on numerous occasions and I am ever grateful for them. Terra has taken wonderful care of my dog, ensuring to show plenty of love. I know that I can trust Terra with my pet as they treat them as their own. Any pup would be lucky to have Terra as a caretaker!”
“We presented Alex with a somewhat unique request, taking care of our mature dog for multiple days, as well as driving her 1+ hrs each way to be part of our wedding. Alex was on very punctual, responsive, and did everything we agreed upon with complete professionalism and care for our dog, helping make out special day that much more special. We will certainly be turning to Alex for any future dog sitting/walking needs we have, even if they are more mundane.”
“Our dog Jasper loves Nathan! He is patient and kind with our dog. Jasper loves walkies with Nathan and gets so excited when he comes over. We recommend Nathan highly; responsible and trustworthy.”
“First she genuinely is a beautiful person inside and out, literally. She’s also a very gentle person so you don’t have to worry about pets, they are in great handles. Not to brag about my friend, but she’s currently in the process of applying to med school. As you can imagine she’s very smart, organized and extremely caring. She took care of my dogs and cats multiple times and always sent cute pictures of them. She loves animals and the animals can definitely feel it. The animals also always miss her when she’s gone. Nishat’s a gem.”
“Chandler was great with my dog Moose! He is very high energy and can get into trouble at times. Chandler was able to handle him no problem and always treated him like family! She was very responsive to any annoying dog-mom questions I had. I highly recommend!!!”
“Our first meeting was great! Very intuitive with our dog's needs. We loved her laid back approach and found that communication was great. Our dog loved all the extra attention!”
“Susan is great! She is so sweet to our dog, and she communicates thoroughly. We will definitely be using her again.”
“Jacqueline was so thoughtful and sweet with The Professor. I’m sure he was a little nervous on his first day in a new city, but she took him exploring South Portland, even dried him off after the rain and gave him his peanut butter Kong to tuck him in. Thank you!”
“So grateful for Rose and her help when I have some last minute schedule changes. Whether it be my dog's medication time or a quick walk she's always been there when I needed her. Can't wait to have her help again in the future!”
“Michelle has taken care of our Shepherd Mix multiple times while we have been away. She is knowledgeable of dogs and very reliable. She asked all the right questions and we have always felt comfortable leaving our Boy in her care. Michelle would send a photo at every visit and ask if we needed anything done while she was there. She was very protective during walks, and went above and beyond in the home. When we would get home, our house always looked better than we left it. You will not be sorry choosing Michelle for dog walking and visits!”
