Jenna is a genuine joy. Her immensely warm demeanor and professional presence made us feel incredibly comfortable leaving our crew of silly misfits in her care during our first partnership with Rover. Responsible, respectful and a real pleasure to work only begins to describe her and her gift of service. We are truly blessed to consider her to be a member of our pack. Thank you for you, Jenna! 💜

Highly recommend!! Andrea has stayed are our house two times for long weekends and watched our 14 year old Pitbull who can't go to dog parks or really be around other dogs. She gave him his medication which is about 8 pills and tried different things to get him to eat. She stayed in constant contact with me and left our house spotless. We already scheduled her for another weekend in August.

We're over the moon with Tarah's stellar care for our two bulldogs while we were away. She handled everything like a pro, from giving them their daily Benadryl to dealing with their sassy attitudes with patience and grace. Coming back to a house that was better than we left it and two happy pups was the best feeling ever. Tarah's genuine love for animals shines through in everything she does, making her our top choice for pet sitting. If you're looking for someone reliable and caring, Tarah's your person. Huge thanks to Tarah for making our time away stress-free and our dogs' tails wag like crazy!

Our dog is a little nervous and he seemed to do great with Molly staying with him for the weekend! We got periodic photo updates so we could see how he was doing. We’d definitely have Molly stay with him again!

Maren did a great job watching our dog and house while we were out of town. She sent multiple pictures each day with updates of how things were going. We would definitely recommend her to others and will plan to have her house sit for us again

Honestly the best sitter I’ve ever had. She played with my cats until they were worn out and offered them snuggles after. She is so sweet and nice. She’s so good about her approach with animals.

Ella did a great job looking after our Charlie for our week long vacation. Ella stayed evenings and overnight with him as he is a nervous dog. Ella also had him feeling comfortable and had him playing right away. Ella did a great job taking care our our property as well, cleaned up after themselves and made sure to keep us informed about Charlie the whole week. A+++ highly recommend!

I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Leah for the position of pet caretaker. I have known Leah for my whole life and have consistently been impressed with their dedication, compassion, and professionalism when it comes to the care of animals. Leah has a natural rapport with pets of all kinds, and I have personally witnessed their ability to connect with, calm, and care for animals in a variety of settings. Whether it's providing routine care, handling special dietary needs, or managing pets with health concerns, Leah has always shown a level of attentiveness and expertise that is truly commendable. One of the qualities that sets Leah apart is their proactive approach to pet care. They do not hesitate to go the extra mile to ensure the well-being of the animals in their charge. This level of initiative is something that I believe any pet owner would greatly appreciate. Furthermore, Leah's communication skills are excellent. They keep pet owners updated with regular reports and are always available to discuss any concerns or questions that may arise. Their reliability and trustworthiness have made them a go-to for pet care among our community. In conclusion, I am confident that Leah would be a valuable asset to your team and provide the highest level of care to the pets they look after. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information or clarification. Warm regards, -Kylie Krauss
