“Shirlene watched our house while we were away for the weekend to celebrate our wedding. She took great care of both of our dogs and made sure to keep us updated every day with pictures and videos. When we got back from our wedding, the house was clean and tidy, and the dogs were happy and healthy. Shirlene was great to work with and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a house-sitter. True professional :)”
“I highly recommend Beckie. This was my first time using Rover, so I spent the time to read reviews and meet in person s couple of times. Beckie watched my two senior pups and house sat. She stayed in communication throughout, sending pictures of my happy pups. I’ve already booked out a couple of trips with Beckie.”
“Andrew took such great care of Chloe, from making sure she had the right attention to her medication and sending me photos while I was away. He is clearly a dog lover. He also went the extra mile to strip the bed in the guest room and start laundry (so appreciated!) Highly recommend!”

“Maria Elisa was great - my kitties trusted and and liked her right away. I was so relieved and happy.”
“Koston, we can't thank you enough for watching and loving on our pooch every time we golfed on our first vacay with our fur lover baby. Thank you beyond for his Del Mar beach memories, walks & being so so sweet. We owe ya!!😙🏼🐕😎”
“Kacey was so excellent! She took such good care of my two English bulldogs and my home. I’m so thankful for her. We will be booking with her again.”
About: I love dogs but can’t have one of my own where I live so I love dog sitting and dog walking for friends. Eventually the hobby turned into a side gig! I work part time so I am available in the mornings until 9:30, then I have a long lunch break from 12 to 1:30, and I’m free again after 4. So I have lots of time for play visits, bathroom breaks, and walks. I can’t have dogs at my place, so I can only take care of dogs at other peoples homes. I’m happy to spend the night if your dog likes company but just as happy to go home after a night walk.
“What can I say? Emily is fantastic and I wish I could keep her a secret, but that wouldn’t be fair to those looking for a great dog/house sitter. Emily is very comfortable to be around and our two fur children loved her. Wonderful”
“I hope Vincent never moves from my area so he can always babysit for us. He is the absolute best dog sitter, treats my pup like his own and is a joy to communicate with.”
“Victoria was really great watching both our dogs during our 5 day trip. She kept the dogs on their normal schedule and made sure they got any special medication they needed. I really appreciated her asking the type of communication we preferred during our trip and she touched base with us just frequently enough to make us feel good while still letting us enjoy our vacation. I also appreciated her observations of the dogs and their behavior (rough playing & ear scratching), checking in with us to ensure it was common or something that needed attention. The dogs seemed relaxed and content when we returned which was a great sign. We’d use Victoria again in the future!”
“Marina was an amazing house sitter for our two frenchies while we were away visiting family. She was communicative, responsible, friendly, and very respectful of our home. And most of all she clearly loved our pups! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marina to anyone looking for 5 star quality care for their pets while they’re away, and someone to look after their house too. We felt like we were in great hands with Marina, and will definitely be asking her to watch our pups the next time we go away.”
“We are new to Rover.com. If all of the dog sitters are as kind, punctual, responsive, and caring as Kira is, we will be very happy using Rover!”
“Maddie is an excellent animal caretaker and is a true animal lover. She helped petsit and dog walk my golden retriever, Bailey, and always did a fantastic job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a petsitter or dog walker!”
“Tyra has watched my dog in the past and was so great! She made me feel comfortable leaving for the weekend, went on nice long walks, and my pup absolutely loved her :) Will definitely use her in the future.”
About: Hello my name is Michael and I love all kinds of pets! I have always been very responsible, punctual and I have a passion for taking care of and adopting all kinds of animals. I've been around dogs and cats my entire life, and have also had birds, lizards, bunnies and even chickens. I'm extremely comfortable with all dogs from small to large breeds as I've owned several myself, including a sweetheart pitbull named Lucy. I currently have a Husky name Vayda and a cat named Naomi. I love cats as well and have always had a cat my entire life. I have volunteered at animal hospitals and am comfortable with rescues or animals needing special care. One day I hope to open up a dog and cat rescue. Currently I take classes online and run several small online businesses so my availability is completely open. Almost all of the work I need to do is remote so I can dedicate most of my time to Rover when needed. I am fortunate to have a large backyard that my husky and cat like to play in together, and I take Vayda (the Husky) on walks several times a day, mostly to the local park, or around the beach where she loves to play fetch and splash around. They both require a lot of brushing so I make sure to brush them several times a day as well. I keep a strict feeding schedule to keep them happy and empty the litter and clean out the backyard regularly. When it comes to other people's pets or ones with special care, I always make sure to ask if they have any allergies, if they have any injuries, or need any medications and how to properly administer them. I always make sure to keep spaces cleaner than I found them if possible and respect and communication are very important values to me.
“Brynn did a great job housesitting and watching our senior pup Lola. Lola has a lot of quirks with walking, eating, sleeping, etc., and Brynn navigated them with great respect and care for her. I’d definitely have Brynn watch our dog and house sit for us again.”
“Jen was awesome! She came by a few days before her stay, and our pup got along famously with her right away. Jen sent us photos and updates throughout the stay, which put my mind at ease. It’s clear that she loves animals, and she has a very natural, easy way about her — she even won over our super shy, skittish cat within only a few hours. Our pets were super happy and content when we got home. I think our dog is even pouting a little bit because he misses her! I highly recommend Jen & we definitely hope to utilize her services again soon.”
“Rachel is a breath of fresh air when it comes to pet sitters. Out of the few I have had in the past, Rachel displays unmatched professionalism and joy. She is on time every single visit and my dog absolutely loves when she takes care of him. You can tell she truly cares for all animals and any dog owner should feel happy knowing their dog is getting the best care and affection possible from Rachel”
“Leah was great with our one year old Shiba and our one year old Calico. She was very communicative, friendly, and prepared. The fur kiddos seemed like they didn’t even miss us!”
“Allison did a perfect job taking care of our two needy cats. One requires an inhaler dose twice/day and his brother wants constant attention. So, it's a big job taking care of them. She also managed the daily household tasks and kept my many outdoor potted plants watered. We also appreciated the daily text messages and photos. She deserves a superior rating!”
