Laura is fantastic! We had never used Rover before and we are so grateful that we connected with Laura. She and our dog, Jinx, hit it off right away. She kept us posted on how things were going with texts and photos. We returned to a happy, well-fed, and relaxed pup! We will definitely use Laura again.

Unica had a house stay with our dog Fig and we felt like we struck gold with her. She sent us sweet pics and updates and we were so happy not to have to worry at all about Fig while we were gone. She also left the house absolutely spotless. We so look forward to the next opportunity we get to work with her!

Thank you, Donovan, for staying with Peggy at my house! Peggy can be a bit vocal at times and Donovan was very patient with her as she got to know him. I really appreciated all the clear communication up front and having our meet and greet allowed us to align on all the details. It made being out of town a lot easier knowing that Donovan was taking care of Peggy.

Demarcus is attentive and kind. He updated us on the pups’ days and went above and beyond to keep them happy. We had one dog who needed some extra attention and he gave her the attention and gave us updates multiple times a day. He is our new favorite sitter!

Stefany is truly a one of a kind Rover! She stayed over night at our house for a full week with our two pups and took such great care of them. We did a meet and greet before our trip, and the dogs instantly loved her and she was so attentive with asking questions and making sure the dogs would have everything they needed. She was great about checking in, sending us pictures, getting all the snuggles & playtime in, and taking great care of our house too! We even came back to the sweetest surprises from her and our dogs were so calm and well taken care of when we returned from our vacation. We will 100% have Stefany stay with our dogs again! She is truly a perfect match for our pups and a fantastic Rover. THANK YOU STEFANY!!

Vikram is a wonderful and responsible dog owner, and this is easy to see by the way his own dogs behave as well as how other animals act around him. He is highly capable of keeping dogs happy and healthy, as well as providing plenty of exercise for high energy pups. I would absolutely be happy to have him care for my pets when I'm away.

Kristin helped me out last minute with a housesitting gig over the holidays and was great with my nervous pup. Having an anxious dog can make leaving home stressful sometimes, but Kristin did an awesome job of making both me and my dog Harris comfortable with her staying in our home. I would recommend Kristin to any of my friends and will definitely try to book with them for future travels.

Mary is AMAZING! I have 2 pups - one 13 year old border collie (45ish lbs) and one 4 year old Aussie mix (65lbs) and both LOVE Mary so much! Our border collie has a heart condition and requires medication every 12 hours with his meals. Mary stayed overnight at our house upon request to care for both pups and ensure that our old man got his meds on time. She was always prompt and communicative with her plans/arrival/departure and we trusted her implicitly with our home and our fur babies. The pups were always fed (and medicined) on time and we never had to worry about their well being! She even sent us pictures of our pups when we were away because we missed them and have always felt like she loves them just as much as we do!

Courtnei went above and beyond house sitting my dog while I was away for 3 days. She always kept me updated and even suggested some great ideas like playing soft jazz at night to keep her feeling a bit calmer. I came home and the house as exactly as I left it. Really appreciated Courtnei being patient with my very temperamental dog throughout the whole process.
