“She’s great with my pets, I have one dog and two cats. She’s watched them on long periods of time while I was out of town. Very reliable!”
“Madison was fabulous with my dogs. She was great with giving updates and sending pictures of them. My dogs were happy that they got to stay in their own home. They were so calm and relaxed when I got back from a night away. I will definately have her watch my dogs again.”
About: I was raised with dogs my whole life and I have had the pleasure of caring for numerous dogs over the years. I love each dog individually and do my best to provide a positive wholesome experience. My schedule is very flexible, i try to accomadate each individual the best that i can. I'd like to make a career out of helping people care for their loved ones, so, I do this full time. I like to model/imitate the style of care that is normal to each pet. I try to be as least disruptful to the dogs routine and treat then how you normally would treat them. The more specific instructions you like the better for me.
“Jackie wasn't discouraged by our crazy dog - or cat. She sent photos and updates while we were away, and we were happy to see the dog having lots of fun and hear that the cat had even come around. Other than clean dishes in the drain and sheet in the wash, you wouldn't have known anyone was here. It was nice to know that everything was taken care of at home while we were away.”
“Could not have been nicer or more accommodating.”
“PJ was able to watch my pup for me who was dealing with a bit of a medical condition and could not be left alone. He was very flexible to my schedule and really helped us both out! Thanks so much for doing what you do!”
“Stephanie did an excellent job watching our two dogs including an elderly dog with medication. Kept everything tidy and sent pictures and updates when requested. Thank you!”
“Colleen was great. Very responsive!”
“Carla was wonderful with our dog and cat. Our elderly cat, Ellie, was in her final stages of life, but we felt comfortable leaving her with Carla, who updated us daily, or more, on her declining health. Unfortunately, we said goodbye to Ellie the day we got home. But, we're glad she was with such a caring person her final week of life. We would enthusiastically recommend Carla as your pet sitter.”

“Caitlin was a wonderful dog/house sitter! She sent photos and texts informing me of how Walter was doing. Walter is a senior dog and Caitlin did a great job with his meds and keeping him in his happy place!!”
About: I have been babysitting and dog sitting since I was in high school. I have many years of experience dog walking and overnight dog sitting! I am in my fourth year of medical school so my schedule is very variable. I am working from home over the next couple of months. I am looking to do some dog sitting and dog walking while I have more time in my schedule. I am rarely home all day but will also be open about my availability as that changes! I do not care for pets in my own home but have lots of experience dog sitting in owners' homes and will respect your space and ensuring your pet and safe and loved while you're away!
“Virginia was great with Willa! She stayed with Willa for a night very last minute and gave us frequent updates with pictures. She took her on a trail adventure which we so appreciated and our house looked clean and tidy when we got home. We’ll definitely use Virginia again!”
“Lynne was amazing! She stayed at our house in July while we were traveling for a week. This was the first time for us to leave our puppy overnight, so needless to say, we were a bit worried about how our 13-month-old pup would do without us. Lynne immediately put both the dog and us at ease. Throughout the week, she sent us pictures and quick updates. We met up with Lynne again a few days after our trip and the dog was super happy to see her. We will definitely reach out to her again when we need somebody to watch our dog.”
“Kristen was great caring for our furry animals. She sent us daily updates as well as pics!”

“Karen has been taking care of our cat for a few years. She stays at our home for a week or longer at a time. We love that Karen takes such good care of our sweet kitty who is nervous with new people. Karen sends us pictures of the cat on her lap so we know things are going really well at home! We highly recommend Karen to take care of and house sit anyone's pets.”
About: I've taken care of dogs for at least 7 years, both in my home as a family pet (washing, walking, playing, feeding), and taking care of I work a flexible schedule in-between 7-3 or 9-5, which means depending on your needs I can walk your dog in the mornings, lunch times, afternoon, or evenings. I'm available to house sit after 3PM on weekdays, Saturday Mornings, and all day on Sundays. A healthy, active ,and mentally stimulated dog is a happy dog. I plan to keep them entertained by playing with their approved toys only, and only feeding them their own treats and meals. I believe its critical to be aware that some dogs can have hypersensitivities. When being out in public; at the park or walking on the street it is critical to be aware of possible safety concerns, overall surroundings, and how the dog I am caring for may react to them.
“Alyson was really incredible. She took really great care of our high energy dog, Lola. She kept her busy and happy and kept us fully up to date on all activity which was wanted given it was our first time using Rover. Will absolutely be using again and reaching out to Alyson first.”
“Erin was amazing while I was at work and my dog needed to watched. She spent all day with him and brought him to the dog park and walks as needed.”
