“Emily cared for my Texas heeler and Chihuahua on several occasions by doing drop-in visits while me and my family were traveling. The heeler is not always friendly to new people, but he really took to Emily! Oreo, the Chihuahua, is an older gal and requires extra care but she handled these needs great.”
“We booked Sophia to house sit for our two dogs for a week. She did above and beyond playing with the dogs, walking the dogs, and even cleaned the house so it was ready when we got home. We also have fish, a gecko, and axolotls and she helped feed and cleaned their tank as well. We will definitely be booking with her again and I think our dogs would love to see her again.”
“Haley was great! You could tell that she really loves and cares for your pets. She was very fast to respond and made sure I was updated with lots of photos. I would definitely rebook her and would highly recommend her.”
“Rodina is the best dog walker. Her love for dogs is definitely a positive trait. She is a very responsible and caring individual. Would make an amazing dog walker. I certainly recommend her to take care of your dog and I trust Rodina with my dog!”
“We were so thankful to have Maria take care of our dog on different occasions when we were away. She is obviously passionate about dogs and quickly showed loving attention to our dog. She came over several times a day to let him outside, feed him and walk him. We felt very confident leaving our dog in her capable hands. I would highly recommend Maria. She is sweet, kind and very responsible.”
“Sydney has watched my two cats with special diets several times. She is not only hardworking and passionate about pets, but she also has the biggest heart. Sydney loves all animals, and is one of the friendliest, most thoughtful humans you will find out there. She is trustworthy, punctual, and so communicative!! I’d trust her with my pets (and anything else ever, probably lol) any time. Don’t wait - hire this incredible lady!!”

“Thanks for taking care of Tango. He loves his walks.”
About: I grew up with family dogs my whole life, but have taken care of my own dogs for a combination of six years! In addition, I babysit for a few families and they all have dogs that I watch, care for, and entertain as well! I work until noon every weekday, but I am fairly available every afternoon and evening! For dogs staying over, I am gone no longer than 3 and a half hours every week day at a time! I have a fenced small back yard that the dogs are free to play in! We also have a one story open house with lots of room and dog toys to play with! I also have two playful dogs that would love to keep your dogs entertained! One of my dogs is an 8 month anxious puppy that is still getting used to other people and dogs. She is anxious upon first meeting new people and dogs, but is not aggressive and is fine after getting used to new dogs. We also have a crate and gates that we can put up around the house if needed! Finally, we have a quiet neighborhood that is perfect for walking dogs!
About: Hi! Over the past few years, especially during the pandemic, I've come to really appreciate the therapeutic power a dog possesses in just grounding you and helping you give and receive love and not take life too seriously. I didn't grow up with dogs (although I always wanted one!) due to my parents having bad allergies, but ever since I moved out, met my sister's (now) husband's dog, and moved in next door to neighbors who had *literally* the fluffiest, most loving, and adorably spazzy dogs, I became sold on getting a rescue dog myself someday when I can properly afford to give my dog the best life ever. In the interim, I love playing with and cuddling dogs every chance I get, and just hanging out with them and giving them all the love in the world possible. I have limited petcare-sitting experience (a few overnights, taking care of friends' dogs, and helping out with past childcare family clients' pets), but I treat every dog the same: as an opportunity to make a new friend, give a little bit of love, and remind them who's a good boy/girl. 😍 I'm a freelancer with flexible hours. I run my own freelance writing business and do delivery driving on the side, so I can be pretty flexible when it comes to your petsitting needs. For now, it's just loving on dogs I come across in daily life! I would make sure to treat each dog as the individual that it is, while offering the same high level of personalized service, attention, and commitment to every client, no matter the dog or owner I'm working with. I would make sure to keep a record of any special needs or fears each dog has that the owner would communicate to me, and work with and within those to the best of my capabilities. I would especially just make sure to ask you to give plenty of pets, cuddles, and belly rubs, and play as many fetch marathons as the dog desires, too.
“Jill has been great with my fur babies! She's always on time and in communication. My animals love her, too. I will continue to use Jill for my pet Sitting needs in the future.”
About: I have had a dog in the house since birth, so I’ve had no choice but to absolutely love them! I’m obsessed with meeting new dogs anywhere and playing with them, and I like to make sure a dog enjoys and remembers their time with me! I am currently a college student so any free time on weekdays I have, but mostly on the weekends I will have time to walk or make visits! I take my own pup on walks and used to walk my neighbors dog for a year. I have also watched larger dogs and cats for friends in the summer.
“Jamie is awesome! She took great care of out little golden doodle, Julep!! She walked Julep for us 3 times in one long, Notre Dame football game day!! Jamie also took time to stop by and meet us before sitting for Julep the next day!! We will definitely hire Jamie again!!”
About: I have been taking care of all kinds of pets since I was 8. I have a German Shorthaired pointer now so I can definitely handle some high energy dogs. I have many other pets including a cat, Guinea pigs, some reptiles, and fish so I am ready for anything! I am currently going to school to be a veterinarian so you can imagine how much I love pets! I have taken care of plenty of pets owned by friends and family and I am excited to have the opportunity to take care of yours! I am currently out of school for the summer so I have plenty of free time to play with, walk, feed, and watch your pets! I can’t currently board pets but I am willing to do whatever is needed for your pets in your home! Just give me instructions and I can do just about anything!
“As a pet owner and a friend of Ingrid G., I highly recommend her as a pet sitter or dog walker on Rover.com. Ingrid is a true animal lover and has a special connection with pets. She is responsible, reliable, and always goes above and beyond to make sure pets are happy and well-cared for. Ingrid is also a great communicator and will keep you informed about your pet's well-being while you are away. She is patient and attentive to pets' needs, and has the skills to handle any situation that may arise. I trust Ingrid with my own pets and know that she will provide the highest level of care for your furry family members too.”
“Zach is like your typical golden retriever: always happy, stoked to meet each new person, and let's be honest...who doesn't love a golden?! Seriously though, Zach loves dogs; any and all. He's a responsible young man beyond his years, always one step ahead. He will make sure your pup has his/her paws pampered all day long.”
“Maia is wonderful! She has sitted my senior cat over 5 times throughout the past year. One of those times I was gone over a month. My cat acted like she didn't even miss me when I got back she was so happy with Maia.”
“Sue is an incredible person! She is extremely responsible/dependable. Her communication skills are outstanding! She also has a unique ability to connect with all kinds of animals. My Pom goes Gaga when Sue is around😊. I trust her implicitly with my dog as well as keys to my home. Linda M”
“Kristi is great with all types of animals and is always willing to take the extra steps to make them comfortable! She has watched our bearded dragon for an extended period and was wonderful with keeping us updated. The bonus is that she isn't at all squeamish about handling bugs for feeding or giving the beardie a bath! She has also been helping out with our two dogs- taking them on walks and checking in on them when we're away. Our puppies can be a handful, and one is reactive and hesitant about new people, so she really took her time to stop by on a regular basis and get to know them- now they absolutely love her!”
