Joshua & Richard D.
“I needed a somewhat last minute sitter. I was visiting from out of state and hate having to find someone last minute without vetting them first. Based on their many good reviews I chose them. All was good and Dexter was tired when we drove home in the car. So it seems he had a good time with them and their pups. Thanks much for returning my kid safely !”
“SO MANY GOOD THINGS I COULD SAY!!! My boyfriend and I look at our two dogs, Hope (almost 2) and Zeus (3 months), like they are children. Our girl Hope can be an escape artist at times and is very active, so we have a collar for her with gps and tracking of her steps. With that being said, in the past I have not re-used some people off rover because Hope simply would not move the entire time!!! At Donnas, Hope and Zeus both ran and ran (after all I could tell). And had an absolute blast. Her yard is fenced in so no dog could get out, even our little lunatics. She knows so much about dogs I have never felt so confident with leaving our babies with someone before. Hope and Zeus will be back!! Truly a gem!”
“Amber was the absolute best! She sent pictures through out the day, helped teach our puppy how to go down multiple stairs and was generally really sweet and attentive to our pup. Excited to have him stay with her in the future!”
“Kassie was AMAZING. Truly took care of my sweet boy and made sure to keep me updated. I felt so at ease. Definitely will be using her again! 10/10 recommend.”
“Ellie loves her time with Jessica, and we look forward to going back again!”
“Joyce is fabulous! Smooth experience, very attentive, great communication. Thank you!”
Luciano & Luciene S.
“I am vacationing in Sarasota for the month of January and feel very fortunate to have found Luciano And Luciene on Rover. I am picky about who dog sits for my cavaliers because they are part of my family. Luciene greets my dogs with real dog loving joy! Yes, they live in an Apt. but they. have wonderful walking paths right on site. My doggies love, love to go on walks and Luciene takes them frequently. I am very pleased and most importantly of all I am confident that they are safe. I appreciate them so very much and my doggies will continue daycare with them on days I want to be a tourist!”
“I have a 3 year yellow lab. There are only a handful of people that I would trust to take care of Shelly and Bill is one of those who I would trust. Whether Bill is petsitting or walking your fur baby, he is going to give 100% of his attention to your pet. He will respect your wishes for caring for your pet and still be a great friend to your pet. Bill is reliable, trustworthy and friendly.”
“Tallie is great! I was comfortable with her immediately. I love the atmosphere at her place, you can tell she loves animals. Tallie sent pics so that I didn't have to worry and Buddy obviously enjoyed himself because he went right to bed when we got him home :) Will definitely be using her again.”
“Ashley is easy to communicate regarding my concerned. When we picked up my dog, Beavis is very happy and tired (good thing)because he played with other dogs. I highly recommend her! Definitely we will hire her again.”
“Thank you, Tamara for being so kind, understanding, and communicative while our boys stayed with you! I appreciated the updates and photos so much. We look forward to booking another service with you soon!”
Charlotte J L.
“Charlotte is the best, she is caring and trustworthy. I knew from the moment I first made contact with Charlotte that she was the one person I could feel sure about leaving my Bandi with. Charlotte stayed in touch with me all the time from beginning to end. Charlotte's husband Randy was also very nice and helpful too. They provided us with updates and photos during Bandi's stay with them. When we return to Siesta Beach we would love them to take care of Bandi?again. Thank you Charlotte and Randy?”
“Jellybean was very happy!”
“Helen is a true dog lover. She is able to work with all sizes of dogs. She has worked with a trainer and has a very good understanding of animal behavior and how to work with difficult behaviors. Helen taught me that the dog walk is not just bonding/training time between dog and walker but also an exciting sensory experience that is very important in very dog’s day. She is very dependable no matter what the weather is like. If the dog will go out she will too! She will be an excellent addition to Rover.”
“DENISE is very good with animals. She has watched my beautiful cat Bella many times and took very good care of her. I never had to worry about her when I was away. I totally trust DENISE with any animal she’s watched a friends dog more than once and she was very pleased with Denise’s services. She has all the qualities of a great pet sitter very caring, and very attentive. Thank you Michelle”
About: I am a lover of all animals, furry, feathered & scaly. Seriously, ALL animals! I’m that lady that will stop to assist a turtle crossing the road. I’ve volunteered to rescue injured birds while at the beach, saved a green anole lizard from a hard freeze, fostered close to a dozen cats til they found their fur-ever homes, rescued a baby red-eared slider turtle the size of a quarter from the middle of the road and raised him to be happy and healthy until he was big and strong enough to be safely returned to the pond. I have no fear of animals. I truly understand and listen to them and know how to read their body language. I often understand animals better than people ☺️ I will always go out of my way for animals. I’m not talking about just wanting to stop and pet every dog or cat I see and give it hugs and kisses…I definitely do! ….but truly doing whatever I can to better their lives. I got my first cat when I was 7 years old, and since then have personally rescued and loved more than 20 kitties, and 2 dogs. I’ve owned and maintained multiple freshwater aquariums. Cared for birds, lizards and snakes. I have experience with dog and cat training, solving behavioral issues, and administering medicine whether it be a pill or injections. I work from home as an adventure travel customer service specialist for REI. My work schedule is M-F from 11am-8pm with my lunch break from 4-5pm. I am available mornings, afternoon, and night. Depending on the dog I may possibly be able to make an exception, however, we have 4 cats so they would need to be friendly and calm towards them. Thank you for understanding
“Finn had a great time with Lexi and Honey?? She was super kind and welcoming, and had a great space for the pups to play and relax…we will def be back!! Thank you Lexi!!”

About: Ever since I was a kid, I always had at least one pet. In the last 16 years I have a cat and in my last 8 years I have also and a dog. During the weekdays and for the weekends because of my obligations , I am only available for dog walkings after 7 o'clock in the afternoon. For those who are interested for boarding - your dog will be also accompanied by our friendly female dog I will pay lots of attention to your animal. I love to walk outside and enjoy watching them play in the dog park, throwing toys, and explore for new smells.
“Alanna has watched our pets for years. She has stayed at our home, come for feeding and walking only and also taken dogs to her home to stay. We’ve always felt they were loved and cared for. She cares for our cats and birds as well. We trust her and know she loves animals just as she loves her children.”
About: I have been taking care of dogs my entire life. From my families, to my neighbors and to my friends, they have all asked me for help. I am working part time right now, and I set my own schedule. So, I can work any time, any place. Let me know what works best for you. I always try to treat the animal with the upmost respect. They are living creatures and deserve the best treatment possible. I am very friendly to them and let them build trust with me first.
