Robert is amazing with our two lady dogs! They took to him right away, and he gave them wonderful walks and snuggles while we were out of state. Robert is professional and takes his Rover duties seriously, which I sincerely appreciate! I would hire Robert again in a heartbeat.

We love Chelsie, she is always there when we need her to watch our kitty, Lotto! I tell all my family and friends if they ever need someone to watch their pets to look on Rover for her! She takes time to change out his water bowl, make sure he has food and scoops his litter even! I also love that she sends me pictures of him and keeps me informed the whole time she’s there. Thanks Chelsie! 😊

About: I have been around puppy dogs all of my life. From Saint Bernards to chihuahuas to basset hounds to mini dachshunds and everything in between. I am also the proud grannie of a Dutch shepherd. Having lost my 13-year-old companion a few years ago my heart is finally ready to help others take care of their loved ones. I am currently working full-time downtime and am available for early morning and evening potty breaks and walks. Depending on the location I can pop in over lunch. I am also available to stay overnight with your little one. I believe furry ones are more comfortable in their own homes. I strive to provide as much normalcy as possible to their routine. They will miss you, facetime is always an option for them to hear your voice.

My little brother Jaden is a very patient, compassionate and understanding individual. I personally have 3 degrees in science and have worked intimately with a wide variety of animals in a number of geographic locations and have a deep respect for animals and wildlife of all shapes and sizes. I see much of these same attributes in my little brother. He recently put down his dog of 14 years due to failing health in his old age. He was a very dedicated and empathetic dog owner. I feel this would be a great opportunity for him to keep dogs in his life without having to jump back into a long term commitment right away.

About: Hello!! I currently have 2 dogs; one is old but the other loves to play! I have been taking care of dogs for around 10 years now. I used to work at a doggie daycare center and have worked on many things like learning dog behavior, giving out medication, and diet restrictions. I love to play with them, and give out cuddles! I currently have a fenced-in backyard where there is plenty of room to roam around and play. I love to take walks and one place that I like to go to would be the park or around my neighborhood. At the park, there is a track where I love to walk around and enjoy the weather with my dogs! I love taking funny and cute pictures, so I will send some if you would like! I also have a bearded dragon and a crested gecko that are currently in tanks and are high off the ground. I love all kinds of dogs and hopefully, I get to know some new personalities! I’m currently working part-time and do not have that many hours right now. I have availability and an open schedule. I often like to go outside throughout the day whenever so walks are very frequent. There is a school close to my house so going over to the playground and walking around the track. Going out and enjoying the weather is my favorite part of the day and now that I have free time there will be more walking. I have a fenced in backyard where they are able to run and roam wherever they want. I am able to give them lunch or medications if necessary. Have plenty of toys to choose from! They will have a plenty of play time and nap time!

Michael has watched my pets countless times! I always feel confident knowing my pups are in safe, kind hands with him. I would highly recommend him to sit or walk your animals. He’s got a big backyard where they can play. He has sent many pics of walks around his neighborhood as well. Give him a shot, he won’t disappoint!
