Xinzhi helped me in a pinch by visiting my pup the last 3 days straight so I could go back go the office. She even stopped by the day before to get familiar with my processes. She’s super communicative and my pup loves spending time with her!!

Christine was so sweet with my cats. She played a game that my cats love, peekaboo stick. I can’t thank her enough for taking care of my kitties!

Heleen was incredible!! She was super dependable and I felt at ease knowing my dog was being taken care of. My dog took to her right away and I was very comfortable with having her drop in to feed and take her to the bathroom while I was on vacation. Very happy and will definitely keep booking with Heleen. if I could give 10 stars I would. :)

Ever since Christine adopted Misu, I’ve seen her take the utmost care of her. She keeps her well fed with nutritious food and snacks, well maintained by diligently scooping her litter, giving her medication, trimming her nails, grooming her fur and brushing her teeth (which is no easy task) and well cared for by playing with her and showering her with love and affection. Christine love extends beyond her own cat as she has visited cat cafes across the country and even internationally and also demonstrates her care for her brother’s two dogs and other friend’s dogs that she has been responsible for watching over the years. Christine is even starting her own cat cafe in the Bay Area in the coming months due to her love for cats and her passion for providing local shelters with additional support and a desire to find loving homes for each cat she will take in.

Darren is the sweetest! He took care of my two dogs who need a lot of special treatment. They have a lot of separation anxiety and he knows just how to calm them down. Very communicative and always on time.

Olivia is one of the best dog lovers in know. She's extreamly calm and takes great care of any pet she comes across. Any dog would be so lucky to have her watch, walk, play, interact w/it. All breeds and once your dog returns to you , it will want to be back with her.

Violet is such a sweet girl! I am so happy that she was able to petsit for me. There is no one else I would trust with my fur baby. She was so responsible, caring and loving to my little guy. I will definitely call her up anytime I need a petsitter.

About: I've been taking care of pets since I was young. Had a dog when I was in high school and recently adopted a dog about a year ago. I am patient and will make sure your dog gets the care they need. I work remotely and love spending time around animals because it just brings me great joy. I currently have a 5 y/o Jindo rescue, but I would love to watch and take care of more animals:) Depending on the service, I will not let your dog out unleashed and will read your instructions carefully to make sure your dog is well looked after. For cats, I will follow the owner’s instructions and ensure that the cat is well cared for.

Rachel did an excellent job looking after my shy cats! She followed instructions and didn't mind that my cats hid from her for the most part. I would hire her again!

Emily was OUR very 1ST rover experience and she is wonderful!!! Her responsiveness was immediate, and even though it was a short check in visit, she showed enthusiasm, and came for a site visit the same day. We are very happy to have found her to take care of our brand new 11 wk old pup ... she engaged with him and sent us pics, sharing their experience. Also excellent past experience, very friendly but yet professional, and felt immediately comfortably to have her in our home. We will definitely have her back !!!

About: I’ve had multiple dogs myself (5 total) and I love to show them love and take them out for walks! Any breed and age are welcome :) I am currently working part time and I love walking my dog hunter to the park everyday to play off leash with other dogs in a big open field After crate training my personal dogs I know how important dog safety can be. I’ll make sure any instructions involving your pup are followed to a T!

Kyle walks my reactive dog weekly and they quickly became bffs. He is very punctual and alert on walks, steering my dog away from other dogs. Kyle always makes sure to send me updates and photos! He is trusted with feeding my dog a special diet and giving medication.

5 stars for Janet! We had a sitter cancel last minute on us and Janet was so quick with getting back to us to let us know she was available. With such a short notice, she saved the day (or trip I should say) for us. She sent pictures every time she dropped in for her visits. She even left the boys a toy to play with (very surprised it’s still in tact). I will absolutely book her again! Thank you again Janet. Don’t hesitate, just book her and she’ll take great care of yours dogs!

Courtney was great. Took really good care of my do and when the dog had a reaction to his regular medication, she contacted me on my vacation so that we could figure out what to do. She also agrees to come an extra time to check on him. I highly recommend her!

Diana and Michael were so kind and professional. I felt extremely safe leaving Reptar in their hands. He requires a wagon and to be lifted, so not for everyone, but Michael was able to assist my big/little guy and get him out while I was out of town for the day. Thank you so much for being so kind and sweet to my guy.
