“I was in an emergency situation and Trina watched my handsome Rottweiler. We did a meet and greet and he took to her right away. He’s a mama boy but by the last night of the stay, he was sleeping with her. She was great with reporting any concerns and the house was very clean when we returned. She also washed the linens. I will definitely book her again”
“Jennifer cared for our dogs for just under a week in our home. It’s evident our dogs were well taken care of during her time house/dog sitting. We came home to a clean house and happy dogs. I appreciated Jennifer’s detailed orientation of the home in our first meeting to acclimate herself with our dogs, their habits/routines and our home. She communicated well with us while we were gone. I would definitely use Jennifer again for future needs!”
“Veronica was wonderful watching my senior pup while I was away for a work trip. She was very thorough and sent a lot of photos. I would recommend Veronica for house-sitting and dog walking.”
“Aimee was so wonderful with Roti! She has come over for a few drop ins before our first full day stay as Roti is nervous and has stranger danger with new people. But Aimee had so much patience and was able to earn roti’s trust slowly. We got great updates and I could see that roti was feeling more and more comfortable - and that’s no easy feat! Thank you Aimee!”
“We had an absolutely fantastic experience with Austin and would hire him again any time! He was communicative and proactive and we came home to happy pets and a clean house.”
“We booked CJ for a week to house-sit and watch our 15 month old shepherd pup. Though she still acts like a puppy, Kiki is 75 pounds, and can be a handful! CJ did great with her, and from the many pictures he sent us while we were on vacation, we could tell that she loved him. CJ is a great communicator. While we were gone, we got two pictures/updates a day, and CJ also worked a little on obedience with Kiki. He also worked on getting her to actually retrieve frisbees consistently… Well, that’s a work in progress! All in all, we loved CJ, and will gladly book him for another vacation.”
“Repeat customer! Brady is amazing with our energetic doggos, sends lots of pictures and videos, and is super communicative. Definitely recommend :)”
“Caroline was great with both our dogs! She kept us unformed, sent pictures, and the house looked great upon our return. The dogs loved her and we could see how much she cares!”
“Elijah took great care of my cat while I had to travel for work. My cat had medication that needed to be administered, and there were no problems. So happy! Thank you!”
“Alexis was very thoughtful and diligent in her approach to caring for our pups. She went above and beyond to give them lots of exercise time outside and play time inside. She also kept us updated on each dog’s status, so we could discuss any potential changes in care that might be helpful. We look forward to having Alexis look after the pups again soon (and I know they’d love future opportunities for cuddle time with her!)”
“Hector is such a pet lover!!! He has watched my dog Benny and my cats over the years. He loves spending time with them, giving them the much needed love they demand and deserve!!! He follows care instructions carefully and is a true gem! Can’t recommend him enough!”
“Stephanie was super responsive and patient with my nervous girl Anya. She hand fed her and spent time letting Anya slowly get used to her. Very communicative and professional, really appreciate her looking after Anya while I was away!”
About: I grew up with my own dogs and dogs in my family from before I can remember. As an adult, I had two apartment cats. I speak English fluently and follow directions correctly. I live a fitness lifestyle. Therefore, I’m happy to take your dogs for vigorous, long walks. Please let me know if any care instructions you have for your pet. Looking forward to working with you. My apartment is 25 steps from the entrance to Rengstorff Park. So, let’s get your dog in shape. My schedule is flexible. I’m new to Rover and eager to take on new clients. I respond quickly, so please contact me for more details. Thank you. I’ll care for the pets in your home and take them to walks in the local park. I will transport pets in my car who have been trained not to urinate in the car.
“Nate has a small dog of his own and treats him like his child - he is attentive, thoughtful, and very nurturing. He has a way with animals and they are drawn to him, I have seen him calm even the toughest looking dog.”
“Caroline was fantastic! She kept me updated with plenty of photos and videos while I was away, and my boys warmed up to her right away. Highly recommend! :)”
“This was my first time booking with Matthew. From the start, Matthew was engaging and asked lots of questions about what I was looking for in a pet sitter. We developed a good rapport and I felt comfortable Matthew understood the details of taking care of our dog and house. Matthew kept me in the loop during the booking by texting and sending pictures and videos of our pet. He asked questions as they came up and allowed me to not worry about my dog while I was away. I returned from my trip and both my pet and house were as I left them. I would definitely consider using Matthew again for future stays.”
“Allie is fantastic with all sorts of animals. She’s caring, thoughtful, and respectful; she has watched over my dog Sully multiple times and he’s much more loyal to her at this point. 5/5 stars across the board, you won’t be disappointed with the care that Allie devotes to your pet.”
About: I experiences with both cats and dogs. I have experience living with dogs for 6 years, and longer with cats. I am the go-to person my friends bring when they want to go pick up puppies because everyone know all animals love me and I can read them well. Walking pets, playing with them, hanging out with them was what I did in between my studies or work. I can take them when I go out to run or go on walks in the morning and evenings. I am working remotely at the moment meaning I am home almost all the time. Even when I am not home my family is home to look after the pets. I am experienced with taking care of pets. I can read the signs of the dogs and their body languages. I’m know how to “please” the pets in different situations. I have a fenced front and back yard for the pets to hang out and snooze under the sun. I also have a big garage that I can use to hang out with pets when the weather doesn’t allow going out.
“Amara has sat for our dogs many times and even had to deal with euthanizing a dog that became ill suddenly while we were gone. She loves dogs and is so good with them that they often have seemed almost disappointed to see us!”
“Colleen was amazing! We had a last minute cancellation and needed to find a new sitter ASAP. Colleen was able to come the next day to watch our cat and dog. She took lot of pictures, was very communicative, and went above and beyond in taking care of Indy and Monkey. We'd love to have her take care of them again.”
