Sarah was a great sitter for our small energetic dog Ellie. She was communicative, flexible to our changing schedule, and sent us pictures every day! We highly recommend her!

Jessica was terrific with Nemo; took him on walks and played with him endlessly. Nemo was so happy such that he did not appear thrilled to leave - he was a dog on vacation! I will definitely book Jessica again if I’m in Portland. Thanks for taking care of Nemo!

We had a wonderful experience with Alma, who invited our Whoopie into her home and family. When possible, Alma also arranges a meet and greet before the stay to ensure a good fit. Thank you so much Alma! We hope we can meet again and reunite dogs and people.

Canela was absolutely fantastic!! This is our first time using a dog sitter and the experience far exceeded our expectations. Arlo just loved her. She sent us such wonderful pictures. It felt so good to see how she kept him so busy playing and going for walks. He came home pooped…just the way we like him. Thank you Canela!!

Rose was amazing! We feel so fortunate to have come across Rose on Rover. We immediately felt comfortable entrusting her with our Maggie. Rose kept us up to date with cute photos and messages throughout Maggie’s stay. She handled Maggie and all her issues with ease and a smile. She even won our stubborn Maggie’s affectation which is high praise from Maggie! I would 100% use Rose’s service again and recommend her to everyone.

Alison is fantastic! My dog Porter had such a great time with her. Her communication, willingness to run/exercise with Porter, and her flexibility was wonderful. Such a relief to know that my dog is comfortable and enjoying himself hanging out with Alison as much as I enjoyed my vacation! Highly recommend!

After our meet & greet, Shorty was so happy to go back to Vicky & Bobby's, he couldn't wait to get out of the car. They have a great house & awesome back yard perfect for dogs. Their dogs Magic & Brooklyn were great with Shorty, & he sometimes has problems with new dogs. Vicky sent me great pics every & really put my mind at ease, seeing Shorty livin the doggy life. Vicky even brought Shorty to work with her at the pet hospital where she works & I know he loved that. Travis, Bobby's brother was also really great & Shorty warmed up to him right away. Shorty is used to sleeping on the bed & they allowed that, and also figured out something yummy for him to eat when he wouldn't. I highly endorse Vicky & Bobby, & Shorty's looking forward to his next vacay!

Elizabeth is awesome! We left our chihuahua with her for about 2 weeks while we were out of town, and we felt so comfortable knowing our little baby was in such a loving home, with someone who adores dogs as much as Elizabeth does! She sent us pictures, videos, and sweet little updates everyday, and we even had the opportunity to FaceTime with our little angel 🐾 We forgot to pack our dog’s winter coat, and it got quite cold, but Elizabeth had an extra coat that she bundled her in to make sure she was safe and warm on their walks through Evergreen. Also, our little pup gets nervous when we leave her and sometimes won’t eat because of it, but Elizabeth HAND FED her! And then she ate her whole dinner like that. Can you believe that? If that doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about how much Elizabeth cares, I don’t know what will. One more way that Elizabeth went above and beyond that really meant the world to us, was how flexible she was with scheduling. We had some unexpected very-last-minute changes to our trip, but Elizabeth was extremely accommodating, kind, and patient. She really had our back. Elizabeth is such a good person, and you can tell that she really cares about you, as well as your dog. If you’re looking for someone trustworthy and above-and-beyond to take care of your beloved dog, look no further! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you Elizabeth!

Stephen was an incredible dog sitter. My dog is pretty big and has some reactivity triggers but he was super comfortable around Stephen and was clearly well taken care of when I picked him up. Would highly recommend his services!

We feel so lucky to have had Susan and her husband watch our dog in their home this weekend! She was SO lovely to meet, her yard was perfect for Moose and her dog was so sweet! She sent us so many amazing pictures of Moose throughout his stay with them! He got lots of play time and lots of cuddles. Moose came home exhausted!! We are so thankful for Susan!! ?

The sense of security knowing that David and Savannah are watching my pug Pearl is priceless. David and Savannah even let her sleep with them. They put down towels and yoga mats on the days that her hips are not strong so she can walk easier. And of course they send me amazing pictures. I highly recommend both David and Savannah. I’m so glad and grateful we found each other!

Sara is everything you’d want in a dog sitter. Reliable, communicative, and a genuine animal lover. I have a rescue dog that gets very nervous when she is left with strangers. After seeing how Sara takes care of her own dog, I knew I could trust her with my fur baby. She has a warm energy that made my dog feel right at ease. It also helped ease my own anxiety that she was responsive when I checked in and would send pics of my pup. Would recommend Sara to anyone and will be trusting her again with my dog!

My dog can be hard to handle in the wrong situations, but Emily put in care to make sure that those were avoided and it was easy to tell Lilah appreciated her stay. Hands on, caring, and in-town, I will definitely recommend Emily again.
