Jenevieve treated our dog like her own. We couldn’t be more grateful! We were able to relax on vacation knowing our fur baby was well taken care of. We definitely recommend Jenevieve!

Tanya was extremely attentive to our cats while we were gone and very attuned to their body language and (obviously) non-verbal communication. She was also great at communicating with us. Couldn’t recommend a better caretaker - would gladly hire her again!

Vivian was great! She came and met with our dogs before she watched them over our trip. She sent us lots of great photos and our girls were in great hands. Thank you Vivian.

My dogs and cat were in such good hands. Highly recommend him. Will use again and again. Was in another country and he was so patient with my payment issue. I didn’t have to worry even at 3700 miles away.

Jaden loves animals and had had his own dog for 14 years, he cared for him very deeply. His responsibilities have included feeding, exercising, administering medications and providing companionship. He bonds well with animals and has great communication skills. I would recommend Jaden as a pet caregiver to anyone seeking a responsible, knowledgeable and compassionate individual to look after their beloved pets.

About: I have been around puppy dogs all of my life. From Saint Bernards to chihuahuas to basset hounds to mini dachshunds and everything in between. I am also the proud grannie of a Dutch shepherd. Having lost my 13-year-old companion a few years ago my heart is finally ready to help others take care of their loved ones. I am currently working full-time downtime and am available for early morning and evening potty breaks and walks. Depending on the location I can pop in over lunch. I am also available to stay overnight with your little one. I believe furry ones are more comfortable in their own homes. I strive to provide as much normalcy as possible to their routine. They will miss you, facetime is always an option for them to hear your voice.

Stephanie was very good about keeping us informed. We got pictures, some of which are hilarious. Personally, I didn't believe her when she said TomTom missed us, but he sure was vocal when we came home! And it was all happy noises. Thanks!

About: I have lived with dogs 20+ years of my life. My partner, Anthony, and I are the Rover duo here! Anthony primarily does the house sitting and we both work together for boarding in our home. We currently have 2 dogs of our own who are both rescues. Arthur is our 6 year old playful, loving lab mix and Taz is our 4 month old sassy pit mix puppy! We love caring for pets and are excited to spread the love to more doggy friends! You can count on us to be reliable, respectful, engaged, and loving to your pets. We will ensure that they get exercise and the love they need while under our care. We will make sure the environment is safe for all pets and make sure your pet has access to food and water at all times. We work from home full time and will make sure your pet has the necessary potty breaks they need and will not be left in a kennel all day long. We love dogs and are excited to provide a safe + comfortable place for your pet so you can enjoy your time away from home knowing your dog(s) is/are in good hands. Anthony and I work from home, which makes pet care fit very easily into our daily and weekly routine. We have 2 dogs of our own and we never leave them home alone longer than 4 hours. We have a partially fenced in yard. The yard is safe and a great size to give your pet ample space to run around and exercise.

About: I have an almost 7 year old black German Shepherd that's about 70 lbs. She is good with other dogs and people. I have a flexible full time job Monday through Friday 8-4. I enjoy going on walks and spending time with animals. I have had different dogs all of my life, so all are loved here! Looking forward to meeting some new furry friends! I work a full time day job typically 8-4. However, my day job is very flexible and can work around various scheduling changes, if needed. I work from home 3 days a week, as well. I do not have a crate at home but will gladly crate your dog at night or when I’m away, if that’s their normal routine and you provide one. My yard is not fully fenced but I do have access to the city dog parks, as long as they are up to date on vaccinations.
