About: Hello everyone! I've lived with and loved dogs and cats my whole life, which has made me a hard working and compassionate pet owner. I have walked all sizes of dogs from Dobermans to Corgis. I also have lots and lots of experience taking care of dogs with hip dysplasia, arthritis, and timidness. Additionally, I have experience walking dogs who are reactive to men, other dogs, and cars. I know how gentle and patient they need you to be! I have previously pet sit on and off for friends/family for more than four years. I love all animals and have experience with chickens, horses, bunnies, guinea pigs, bearded dragons, hamsters, turtles, tortoises, chinchillas, and fish! I look forward to hearing from you soon! I'm currently attending graduate school to become a school psychologist. I go to night classes, so my mornings and afternoons are free most days of the week. I always consider the owners description of their pets personality and the body language of the animal I am working with. If your pet seems to be nervous I would wait until they become more comfortable before approaching them. I would never want to make an animal more fearful of me or their environment.
“Maggie is great! Always very timely and super attentive, she goes out of her way to make sure our cats are cared for and things are in order. Very thankful we found her to help out while we are away!”
About: I’ve had pets at home for as long as I can remember! I recently moved to Philadelphia, but grew up with 2 cats and a dog. My family recently adopted a sheltie (who is now 1) which has allowed me to gain a lot of puppy experience. I love pets and have some training experience, and am available for pretty much anything you would need! I currently work a 9-5, but work from home Monday & Friday. Tuesday through Thursday I am available mornings/afternoons, and Friday - Monday am available all day and overnight if needed. My house unfortunately does not allow pets, so I am not available for boarding in my home. I am however available for drop in visits, walks, and overnight care most days of the week!
Christie & Drew C.
“Christie and Drew were amazing! My dog seemed very comfortable with them. They were great with communication and updates as well as timelines! 10/10 would recommend!”
“Kate is a great lover of animals! Over the past few years, she has been an extremely reliable and loving pet-sitter for my many cats. She even helped me once by meeting with a locksmith when my lock needed repair during a vacation and hungry kitties were stuck inside! She is highly recommended.”
“Jack has taken care of and walked my dog, hank, for me many times and Hank loves him! Jack is a natural with animals and will play with them, if they’re more rambunctious, or just chill with them if they’re more laid back dudes. He has a lot of experience having worked with dogs of all sizes and personalities. He’s responsible and on time. I never worry about my dog child when jacks watching him, I know he’s in good hands! Highly recommend. Your pet will love him:)”
“I was very nervous about leaving my cat for a couple days and ended up interviewing a couple sitters. It was very important to me that whomever watched Reese was familiar with cats. I felt very comfortable speaking with Brittney and so glad I ended up booking with her. My 2 visit booking turned into every day with last minute changes that she was able to accommodate. She was able to help with certain situations and keep me up to date with how Reese was doing. I will use Brittney again!”

“Thank you for doing more than I asked! My babies were well taken care of. I received plenty of pictures on each visit which made me feel better about leaving them. Will be booking again.”
Matina & Amanda A.
“We have 5 pets (dogs and cats) that Matina has cared for us many times. She is very attentive and loving to all my animals. They always look forward to seeing her.”
“Destiny was great with my foster dog BoBo. She was very flexible when I accidentally had the wrong address in the River app. She took him on a walk and gave him medications. I will definitely try to book again.”
“I never have to worry about Jackson when we can’t be home. Bailey takes very good care of him. She goes out of her way to provide play and enrichment for him. I’ll uses her over and over again. Jackson really loves her too!”
“I have witnessed firsthand how Dominique takes the time to understand each dog's personality and needs, ensuring they are safe and happy during their walks. She always arrives on time and has a flexible schedule to accommodate the needs of her clients. She also reliable, trustworthy, and communicates well with her clients. She sends me regular updates and photos of the dogs during their walks, which enthuses me and will give you peace of mind knowing they are in good hands. I highly recommend Dominique for anyone who is looking for a professional, caring, and responsible dog walker. Passionate about her work, her love for animals shines through in everything she does.”
“Shauna is as good of a person as you’ll find. As someone who I’ve known for years she absolutely loves dogs, and has demonstrated the ability and attitude to properly take care of them. If I had a dog and was using rover, Shauna is the exact type of caregiver I would hope your app would have.”
Devin & Bradley D.
“Devin is a great animal mom to two cats and is a great dog walker/watcher! My puppy Björn loves getting walks from her! Very responsible and caring for all animals!”
