House Sitting in Downtown, San Antonio
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Frances was a wonderful sitter and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy person to care for your pets. Frances was great at keeping in touch with us and sent us the perfect number of updates on Abbey the dog. Abbey can get a little 'Eeyore-y' when we're away but Frances was super patient with her and just let her be her usual sleepy self. It was such a relief knowing someone responsible was watching Abbey. It allowed us to actually enjoy our weekend, stress free. We would happily recommend Frances to any other person looking for a housesitter/walker/animal friend. She was fantastic!”
“Matt stayed at our house to watch our foster dog for a weekend, and I believe he may have provided her with the best weekend of her life. He took her to the park, to The Pearl, on a ton of walks, helped with her training, and played with her in the yard a ton. He sent lots of photos and gave us the peace of mind we needed to enjoy a weekend away. The house was tidier than when we left it. Would definitely recommend Matt in the future for all Rover services. He was great!”
“I liked getting videos of the fluffy ones.”
“Ashley was the sweetest! If I send her a message last minute she is almost always available! My dogs always run to her when they see her. She has been doing this for our family for around 3 years now! She’s super friendly & understanding with all of our pets! I loved that she joined Rover so you all can experience the same relief it feels to leave my dogs with Ashley!”
“I'm so thankful for Mackenzi! She was able to step-in to house sit my dog last minute after another Rover house sitter cancelled on their booking halfway through providing their house-sitting booking. Mackenzie provided the care and followed the schedule agreed upon for my dog. I have already booked Mackenzie again for another house-sitting booking and would highly recommend her to anyone needing a house-sitter for their pet.”
About: As a former middle school educator, I understand that patience and love are key to any interaction. I’ve grown up with pets since I was 8 years old, and I’ve formally dog walked friends and families pets for five years. I keep in touch with all of them as if they were my own. I believe dogs deserve all of the love, patience, and fun. I have experience with small to medium dogs the most, but have also built meaningful relationships with larger dogs. This includes bathing, walking, feeding (and hand feeding), snuggling, and more. My current longest client is 4 years strong and I have even taken them to vet appointments as well as helped the owners research and find the best pet insurance for them. I have also experienced losing a loved dog and know the pain it brings; this reminds me to always give everything I can when in the presence of your fur baby. Whether your baby requires a little more attention or just needs a simple check in, I am here to help and follow your guidelines! BOARDING AND DAYCARE REQUESTS: if you book boarding or daycare in my home, please know I will not have any other pet around. I want to ensure top safety and that your pet receives 100% of my attention. I currently work full time but I am available almost all weekday evenings, weekends, and holidays (except Christmas and NY). I live in an apartment but it is located in a large park with plenty of exercise space and greenery. I will make sure your baby can still receive their exercise and potty time safely! Note to clients further than 12 miles: A $10 travel fee will be added for mileage/gas if you are located farther than 12 miles. When you schedule me, I’ll have plenty of time to be with your fur baby! Please be specific about their needs and yours. I will gladly follow up with any questions to ensure my service is to highest standards. Safety and trust are the utmost priority. While I do have experience with reactive dogs, I truly believe that specific boundaries and safety measures vary on a case by case basis. I will happily review your dogs profile and speak to you to ensure a safe plan is in place before our visit!
“She was an absolute gem. I had a last minute trip planned, and I had to make arrangements for my two high maintenance dogs. Erica house sat for me last minute and did amazing with my two huskies. When I got home, my huskies were tired (that’s an impressive feat on its own), and my house was clean of husky dust. She definitely didn’t have to sweep and whatnot but she did! I would book her again in a heartbeat.”
“Sara is AMAZING with our two dogs. They absolutely adore her. Any time we need a dog sitter when we go out of town, Sara is our #1 choice! We have a two year old dog and a crazy puppy and Sara is great at making sure all their needs are met and that they are comforted while we are away. We HIGHLY recommend Sara to anyone who needs a skilled dog sitter to take care of their pups while they are away.”
“Abeer was extremely easy to work with and took amazing care of both our very spoiled cat and our house. She has superb communication skills and gave many updates with pictures. She put us at complete ease leaving our cat for a long weekend of travel. I cannot recommend her enough!”
“Sarah stayed at my apartment with Troy over a long weekend while I was out of town. She kept me updated throughout the weekend and took great care of Troy. I would definitely recommend her to care for your pups.”
“Truc was great! Very attentive, considerate and communicative. I recommend her to anyone and will definitely have her watch the dogs in the future.”
“This was the first time we had ever used Rover. We booked Amanda to take care of our 2 dogs and 2 cats in the home. She was OUTSTANDING! She kept us informed through texts, e-mails, and pictures the whole time we were gone. One of our dogs was unsure at first, but Amanda quickly won him over! We've already booked her for our next vacation. We would highly recommend her for anyone wanting the best care for their fur babies.”
“I cannot say enough good things about Dana! We have never used a dog sitting service before so were nervous. She really is the best! She communicated all the time, took our THREE HIGH MAINTENANCE (goofball) DOGS on regular walks, sent us pictures, and left the place exactly as it was the way we left it. We love our dogs but love to travel too and sometimes the two don't mix well. Dana to the rescue!”
About: I’m an animal type person, growing up I had 6 big dogs. I also pet sit for family and friends when they are out and about. I currently work full time during the week days and off on the weekends, I would like to spend my off time playing and taking care of some doggies. I take really great care of my own or anyone else’s pets, I give them all the love that they need. I play and nurture them as much as they need.
“Sarah was Awesome! She was very accommodating. We had never used the Rover app and had never done anything like this before. Our plans had fell through for our doggies being watched and this was all last minute as we were in a bind for Thanksgiving holidays. Sarah was available, very helpful and expeditious in meeting with us last minute and watching our girls. She took great care of our dogs and our home too. She kept us updated with pictures of our girls. I would recommend her as well as use her again!😃👏🏼”
“Mel was very professional and did a great job babysitting my dog! Thanks!”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of every kind since I was 15. Neighbors, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed and bathe their pets. I have opened my home to a number of animals and enjoyed making new furry friends. When it come to pet sitting my schedule is very open. I’m a full time student taking online courses and have nothing but time to keep your animals active and well. I have a fenced yard that your fur baby can roam freely. I can easily crate your animal if needed. Also depending on your preference and home I’m open to any ideas.
“Ericka calmed all my fears about leaving my reactive pup with her! She sent me lots of pictures and just took such good care of them! My dogs loved Ericka 🥰 (I’m only begrudgingly leaving this review bc I selfishly want to keep her for myself!)”
“Jessenya is a friendly sweet person. I’ve always see her so happy around dogs! I have a dog myself and she has taken care of him a couple of times. My dog always love seeing Jessenya and always come back happy! Jessenya has a lot of patient and she always make sure the dogs she takes care are safe and happy. I’ve also taken care of her dog before, such a good girl!! Well-behaved and listen to Jessenya. Her dog is a service dog and she is amazing!! You will love having Jessenya!”
About: All of my experience is personal family pets. I’ve had a pet my whole life. I’ve had dogs, a hamster, fish and a bearded dragon! I have dealt within large and small dogs, young and old. I love them all. I treat any dog I come in contact with like they my own. I’ve administered injections and pills to sick pets. So I can help with any task really. I work part time, so this would be my way of keeping busy when I’m not busy. I enjoy helping others and caring for pets. My pets have a nice set up. Kennel for each, with tons of blankets and chew toys. Food and water is always readily available. Most recently, I had a fur baby who was sick. So I would give her daily meds and get checked often. She had a special diet as well.
