Veronika is the best! I am home recovering from knee surgery and my dog is not thrilled about leaving me when she arrives. Veronika has done a great job coaxing her and getting her to walk!

Joan was awesome!!! She was very sweet with our dog and even met with us beforehand to introduce herself, meet our pup and ask all her questions before his sessions. We would rebook her in an instant the next time we need services.

Kevin has provided overnight care for Roxy several times a year, over the last 5 years. She always has a wonderful stay. Roxy gets medication at each of her meals as well as a mix of wet and dry food and knowing she’s taken care of is most important to me. Kevin is attentive and caring. He provides regular updates and walks and always ensures Roxy feels at home throughout her stays.

Cynthia is a great human being and is amazing with animals. She has looked over my German Shepard collie mix plenty of times and has always been much help. As well as always providing tips on behavior and health due to her professional experience as a vet tech.

About: Though I’m new to Rover, I’m far from new to pet care. I have never not owned pets. I have owned brand new puppies to senior dogs with lots of health issues, and everything in between! I’m a current mom to a chocolate lab and a German shepherd mix who is blind. I am extremely comfortable with medications, weird schedules, and all those quirky things about your dog you’re stressed to ask for. I would love to build a relationship with your pet so we are both comfortable and can be repeat friends. I’m the one throwing birthday parties for my dogs and putting holiday-themed collars on them. My dogs are my family, and yours would be too. I work from home most days of the week, and I’m home most weekends. I am available for drop-ins, playtime, walks, or just snuggles. Whatever your pet needs! Because I work from home, I am available for extended in-home visits if needed! I personally have dealt with trust issues when wanting someone to come to my home to watch my dogs, so I know how important it is to have someone you trust. You should be able to relax knowing someone is respecting your home and treating your pets like their own. I will follow your instructions to the letter, with extra lovin’s for your pup!

Grace is an animal lover, and has her own mini-Daschund she cares for daily. She’s great with animals and has experience with big dogs as well. I would definitely recommend Grace to care for your animal while you’re away.

About: I'm a new parent, so I'm currently unemployed and looking for a way to earn a bit of income. I think walking dogs and doing some drop-in visits would be a WONDERFUL way to fill in the time I get to leave the house for a bit. I had a chihuahua growing up and now I have a beagle, a bulldog, and a golden doodle. I love taking care of dogs of all shapes and sizes. Dogs are such precious animals, and having more in my life wouldn't hurt at all. I'm currently unemployed and I soend a lot of time at home with my family. When I get opportunities to take a breather and get out of the house I have no idea what to do with my time. I figured taking care of dogs and going on walks with them would be an amazing way to fill my free time. Especially because I'm so comfortable doing so. Having dogs (now with a new baby) my routine with them includes safety gates for certain hallways. I also make sure they have seperate feeding areas and sometimes they're taken outside and different times. The reason for this is because although they get along, sometimes they need space from eachother or they get fussy! So I understand if your dog(s) have certain needs/accomadations to make them comfortable and happy. Just be sure to let me know :) When it comes to walking my dogs, I make sure to keep a lookout for any others being walked nearby and I make sure to avoid them. This is so they don't get out of control or start barking across streets and disturb the peace.

You cannot ask for a better pet sitter than David! We entrusted him with Kia, our 7 year old maltipoo for 7 days while we went out of town. We love going on vacation but always miss our pets. David stayed in constant communication with us and sent plenty of photos of him playing and taking care of our baby. He made sure to follow all requests with Kia’s routine as well. Overall he gave us peace of mind when we were gone and we will definitely be using him again!

Alexis is an extremely reliable and trustworthy caregiver. During the time where she cared for my cane corso, she was incredibly attentive to the needs of my pet. It was also imperative that our schedule be adhered to-something Alexis made sure to respect. Overall, my dog and I really appreciated Alexis’ help!

About: As a dog lover I have had as many as 3 dogs in my life at once and I so appreciate the unique personality that comes with each and everyone. I have boarded dogs for friends for as many as 2 weeks at a time and always helping friends and neighbors with check-ins, walks and all the fun stuff. I truly love dogs for all the joy they bring to my life and my kids. I would be honored to help you with your doggo. I work from home Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. With that I am given flexibility to walk my own dog and help care for your dog to give you that piece of mind. I am happy to spend as much time as a dog asks for to ensure they are happy. Walking, playing, giving them the love and attention they all deserve. Weather is not a factor for me. As a dog owner I understand the need for trust and I am willing to engage in any conversation you would like to ensure you are comfortable trusting me with your pet.

About: I’m a passionate & loving person with many years of pet care. I took care of my brother’s two puppies throughout the pandemic while their parents were working long hours. I very recently took care of an old teacher’s 2 year old pup for a week. I will love your dog just as much as you do. My first dog was the love of my life and I want to care for other’s amazing companions I’m currently a full time music education student, but I commute from my parent’s house, so I have an open schedule. I usually stop by loved ones’ houses to check in their dogs for them if they are out of town. I have two loving parents that take in any dog that comes by. My home is always filled with family friends and relatives so your pup will never be lonely. I have a huge backyard with a hill so they can run around and be their true selves.

Jorie was wonderful with my dog! He loved seeing her, she was patient with all his sniffing and peeing on their walks, and she even got him to run a little bit! She was very communicative, even when schedules were funky, and I would definitely hire her again. Thanks for everything, Jorie!

We booked Stephanie for a meet and greet walk since our dog can be nervous around new people. She was super responsive when I reached out. She also seems very knowledgeable about building trust and didn’t rush anything. We got a great summary and photos after her first walk. We’ll definitely be booking again!
