Craig & Chelsea B.
“Craig was great! He was very thorough and made sure he understood Millie's needs to best support her during his stay with her. I would highly recommend! He provided updates and made sure he had information in case of an emergency.”
“Hired Kasch to care for my older doggo, G, who has little tolerance for the young pups at her usual boarding facility. This was my first time having a pet sitter in my home and wasn’t sure how my senior rescue dog would do with it as it was a first for her as well. Kasch was fabulously communicative asking questions to ensure her well-being. He was patient as my pup took her time to warm up to him. She got lots of walks and was able to stick to her usual schedule. As the weekend went on, G grew more and more comfortable having Kasch provide care. I came home to a happy, well regulated dog. I highly recommend Kasch and will definitely call on his services in the future.”
“So thankful for our newfound dog sitter! A friend recommended Rover and we are so glad we discovered the site. She was prompt, professional and calm. One of our dogs met her match with a porcupine and our sitter took her to the vet and made sure she was ok. Our house was exactly how we left. She did a tremendous job and we highly recommend her!”
“Stephanie was so sweet with my dog, Dory and kept her safe and happy while pet sitting at my apartment. She was also very professional and communication response time was always very prompt. This made for a very stress-free day for me, which was appreciated! I would definitely recommend Stephanie!”
“Gabrielle was great with Lulu! She sent plenty of updates and followed instructions for her medication to a T! Would definitely have Gabrielle house/pet sit again!”
“Eli did a great job watching my pup while I was away! She communicated with me regularly, sent me lots of pictures, and kept me updated at all times. Knowing that my dog was in good hands gave me peace of mind during the trip. I definitely recommend Eli as dog sitter & walker!”
“Amber really helped us with a last minute overnight stay with our two girls! A friend was supposed to watch them for us and canceled at the last minute. Amber came over for a meet and free before work so we could meet her before we left the next morning. She kept in good contact with us and sent lots of photos so we knew how our fur babies were doing so we didn’t worry. She took great care of the house and very responsive! Would definitely recommend her and have her watch the girls again!”
About: I have always had a furry friend around my house. I believe animals are the best company. I enjoy spending time with animals no matter their breed and believe every animal deserves a solid chance at a day well spent. I am currently a full time college student. I plan to help out whenever I am able to around my class schedule. I am flexible with my availability around my class schedule and will work with anyone to find a schedule that works best for them. I am comfortable caring for your pet in whatever way you prefer. I have always crated my dogs while I’m not home for their own safety, however, I understand that that technique may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
“Hire her. Just hire her. Don’t think about it, don’t question it. Juat do it. You won’t worry about your pets once. I have autism and I cannot leave my babies easily and, (sorry fluffies), but I hardly thought about them while away when Abby was with them. Most sitters in the past I have felt the need to always know what was going on, is everyone okay and eating well, is everyone happy. With Abby I just knew they were all going to be happier than can be, likely all over her lap or running wild though a park with her. I wonder if they were actually happier with her than with me ? So, please, hire Abby. She’s amazing.”
“Lindsay did a great job with our energetic pup on a few day house sitting venture!”
“Fabulous communication. We had to cancel last minute because of an avoidable change in plans but we had such a positive interaction.”
“Richard did a phenomenal job! Our animals loved him, and we felt so comfortable having him watch our house! We returned to a clean house and two very happy animals! We will definitely refer him to everyone, and we definitely plan to use him again! Thank you Richard!”
About: I have owned and taken care of dogs since I was young. I have house/dog sat for over 15 clients in the past 2 years. I absolutely love spending time with animals and playing with dogs. I have taken care of dogs ranging in age from puppies to senior dogs. I have followed strict feeding schedules and special diets when needed. I do not have a set work schedule so dog care hours can fluctuate. Most days, I will be available for morning or evening walks and feeds. I have taken care of an array of dog breeds ranging in age from puppies to seniors. I am great at following any instructions left by the owners and want your dog to feel happy and cared for.
“Lena was responsible and responsive. When she came over to meet the dogs, our shy Baxter was comfortable from the get-go. She sent updates and photos on how things were going and the house was as tidy as we left it. We would definitely ask Lena to help with our buddies again!”
“Stephanie did an excellent job taking care of our two neurotic little pups. It really helped ease our minds to know that our dogs were going to get to stay at our home while we were gone and Stephanie sent us daily updates about them.”
“I have personally known Victoria Slockbower since we both were 14 years old. As long as I can remember Vici has always had pets that she cared fore. She was born with a deep love for all Animals. She is one of the most talented Veterinary Technicians in the trade, and has a extensive knowledge on animal care and behavior. There is no better pick when it comes to pet care than Vici, hands down.”
About: Our home is very pet friendly/lovable! We have an 11 year old Miniature Dachshund named Marlena. She has spent her entire life growing up with our children and has always been around other dogs (we have been home to multiple long-term foster pups). I am confident in my ability to provide a fun, loving and positive atmosphere/experience for your dog and look forward to meeting you both! Being a stay at home mom gives me the ultimate flexibility to provide 24/7 care for your dog. This allows for frequent potty breaks, lots of attention and somebody who is around for dogs who may have anxiety and prefer not to be left alone. Accommodating individual needs is no problem at all. Multitasking has become a valuable skill set and I am very good at maintaining structure and staying on schedule.
“To whom it may concern: Thomas is one of the most responsible people i know who is always on time and very detail oriented. He will treat anyones pet as his own. He will make sure your pet is happy and having fun all day. He loves entertaining them and hanging out with them. I trust him with my own pets and whenever i came home they were always happier then when i left.”
“Ashley was great. She was easy to communicate with and took great care of our house and our dogs while we were away for the weekend! We look forward to using her as our dog-sitter again in the future!”
“Mesa LOVES animals!! She grew up on a farm and cared for dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, horses, goats, pigs, and cows! (A hamster too!) She showed pigs and rabbits in 4-H and FFA. She loves to come home to love and play with her pets still on the farm!! She is a kind and compassionate nurse! She is a caring and loving person and would be an amazing caregiver for any/every pet!”
