Lacey has taken excellent care of my two Boston terriers on a regular basis for years now! One is a senior who needs carried up and down stairs with assorted health issues that come with age including needing eyedrops and different meds. The other is a high energy little guy who needs constant cuddles, playing & attention. Both absolutely adore her and I know they get the best possible care with her! I travel often for work & she’s the only person I feel comfortable leaving them with. She’s also incredible with cats of any age & temperament. Your fur kid will thank you for having her come hang out with them. Couldn’t reccomend higher.

I was able to book Troy on short notice, which was very helpful. He was prompt, friendly, and my dog was instantly comfortable with him. I’d definitely recommend Troy and plan to book him again in the future!

Brad was amazing with our dog! He was incredibly conscious and respectful about maintaining any routines and training we had already established with our dog and was great with our sometimes unruly boy! I was very impressed with how communicative he was and took very well composed and extremely cute photos to send us! I would absolutely recommend Brad!

Nila loved going on a walk with Alexandra and was so happy afterwards! She was flexible even with our last minute request, great at communicating, and understood the differences in dog personalities and how to work with that. Definitely would recommend her!

I wish I could give even more of a tip (rover won't let me give more than 30%), but Monica did an amazing job today. My dog had an accident in the house and she cleaned it up even though she didn't have to. Words cannot describe how awesome Monica is. 12/10 would recommend to anyone.

Tori did a great job watching our dog while we were traveling. Our dog really bonded with her. She also left the house clean and tidy. We were able to relax on our vacation knowing our dog was in good hands.

About: I have been around and cared for animals for most of my life! Ranging from mostly cats of all ages to older dogs. Previously I’ve done home visits for check-ins and walks, to house-sitting for those on vacation. I am currently a full-time student, so I have a flexible schedule in between classes during the day and after 5 p.m. I can accommodate overnight care and I am available on the weekends! I am a full-time student, so during the week, I am unavailable... Mon. - 12 pm - 4 pm Tues. & Thurs. - 6 am - 6 pm Wed. & Fri.- 6 am - 11 am, 2 pm - 4 pm On weekends I am majorly available! Within your home, I would be more than happy to perform whatever duties are needed to keep your animals safe and happy. From kettling them if needed, to leashed walks. Just let me know what works best for you. I’m used to watching large dogs in un-fenced yards and having to crate one of them when I leave. Also used to either just take them out to go or take them on long 20-30 minute walks so they could get their exercise.

I had to cancel last minute and she was so understanding. I hated to do it but our pup is getting older and I decided to spend the day with her instead of taking a trip by myself. Chelsie loves older pups so she completely understood. I would definitely recommend her as she met my baby girl Coraline and Coraline loved her.

Sidney is super with my French bulldogs. I have three and she treats each of them like little humans. They love her. She is super trustworthy, sweet and kind. It should be mentioned that two of the frenchies are over 12 and one is a puppy so she is great with all ages and stages of the critters lives. Hire her. She’s wonderful and will love your babies as her own.

Jessica watched our three dogs several times. She was great with communicating throughout the process. One of our dogs is very nervous around new people and Jessica was super patient with her…by the time we came home from our trip they were best friends! I highly recommend Jessica for anyone looking for a super kind and patient pet sitter!

About: I have been the main caretaker of any animal I’ve ever had, some because I was the one who begged for it. And others because I just love animals so much that their care is only half the fun. I have experience with animals in all stages of life, from puppies to seniors. My puppy experience ranges from being the one who nursing a parvo puppy back to excellent health, she is now 3 years old and thriving. I also have a senior dog, who is such a joy but I think he forgets he has arthritis with all of his puppy antics. I also have a lot experience with teaching many tricks so don’t be surprised if your animal learns something new every time they see me! I work from home and have only two courses a day, so I have a lot of time on my hands to do a good pet care routine. My babies (my cats and hermit crabs) are on a routine or rather I am. We do feedings in the morning and have an hour of down time for everyone to “stretch” their legs before I go to class. I’m away for 3 hours before I’m back and during that time I can walk a dog if one is staying. And then I work from home so pretty much I’m at the animals beck and call whenever they need anything. I am in an apartment which lessens the risk of anything happening to your pet on my watch! Also with living in an apartment by campus we can always go for walks and meet some college students wanting some animal love!
