“Aniya took excellent care of our kitty boys while we were away for a weekend. She kept us well informed of how they were doing and was really thorough in providing us picture updates. She was also very patient with our grumpy boy, Smaug. He hates us traveling and tends to sulk, but she was very sweet and patient with him until he came around. We really appreciate her caring for our boys so much and will definitely ask her again when we travel next.”
“Emilie did a great job. Chip was anxious but Emilie did her best to make Chip feel comfortable. Emilie was also very easy to contact and responded quickly.”
“Tatianna was great with Ace and he really enjoyed having her around. This was our first time using Rover and Tatianna; after such a great experience it certainly will not be our last. We highly recommend Tatianna as she was easily accessible, great time management and most importantly knows how to take care of dogs. Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again soon.”

“Gabi was really easy to work with and helped me navigate the app so I could get assistance I was looking for. She played with my dog and took him out to use the restroom and sent me photos. I was happy seeing Milo in the pictures.”
“Danica has been a pleasure to work with. Organized. Follow through. Prompt. Communicative. Reports were derailed and entertaining. Photos were a bonus. Even left us a mini Polaroid photo. I loved this entire experience.”
“Mona did such a wonderful job with our dog while we were gone. She wrote to us every day and sent pictures twice daily. She is positive, very reliable, professional and fun. We returned to a young dog who was calm, secure and well cared for after the longest stretch she had experienced away from her family ever. That is such a wonderful compliment to Mona's care and caring and we thank her so much.”
“Anika is a loving and compassionate animal advocate. She is a vegetarian for moral reasons due to her extensive love of animals. She has been around dogs and cats most of her life at home. She has volunteered at an animal rescue specializing in dogs and cats. She additionally, is studying zoology and the care of many different animals. She has two ferrets herself and champions the care of all animals in her charge. Lastly, she is thoughtful and thorough when caring for any of her pets. She is very trustworthy and well organized. I would highly recommend Anika to care for any animal.”
“Kim was fantastic. My cats loved her and all of the play time and pets they got. Kim was always prompt in communication and kept me aware of all of the things that were happening. I'd be very happy to have her cat sit again!”
“Julia was absolutely fabulous. She was not only caring and attentive to my pet, but she provided excellent updates and photos at each of her visits. It was a joy reading her cards. I’m thrilled to have found such a reliable and great person to work with. Would highly recommend. Will be booking with her from now on.”
About: I am a current vet student at UF and I do most of my classes online so my schedule is pretty flexible! Before being accepted to vet school, I worked at UF's emergency and critical care ward as a technician assistant so I am very comfortable handling a variety of pets as well as administering medication. I have two dogs back home and one cat here with me in Gainesville. I have owned hamsters and have handled rats, ferrets, and rabbits in my previous job so I'm open to small animals as well as dogs and cats. As a sitter/walker, I want to make sure that you feel comfortable with leaving your pet in my care. I would love to know if you do anything specific with your pet or if your pet has any particular quirks or mannerisms to ensure that they feel comfortable around me as well. I'm available most weekdays in the mornings until 12 or after 5 pm, it just depends on my class schedule. I'm free all day on weekends as well! For drop-in visits, I'll make sure that your pet has food and water available to them. I'll also check and clean up any messes they may have made while I was gone. I'll walk your dogs and clean your cat's litter box. Every pet will get lots of love and playtime with me while I'm there! For dog walking, I'll take your dogs out for a long walk that will get their energy out as well as give them some mental stimulation.
About: I have 3 dogs of my own and have been dog sitting for years. From long-term house stays, to dog park excursions, to simply giving them love and attention, I am experienced in caring for all shapes and sizes of furry friends! I work and go to school part time, but for the most part, my mornings, afternoons, and evenings are open! I can fit in dog walking and drop in visits any time, and am available for house stays on weekends! I have experience in approaching and caring for dogs in a way that does not make them feel threatened in their own space. I will prioritize making sure they are comfortable and loved!
“Madison was such an great sitter for our pups. My dogs loved her and she is very patient and reliable. We definitely plan to book with her in the future!”
“Ashlyn was awesome, thank you for taking great care of our cat!”
About: I have taken care of pets ever since I was a child, first being my neighbors lab Becky, then more recently a crazy beagle named Turk and his brother Tito who lived to howl. I’ve worked with all types of dogs big and small, puppy to senior. I have experience giving meds, picking up poop and and most any other special needs you may have. I have experience working in dog daycares for years and am a student in the zoo field looking to make animals my full time career. I love all dogs and dachshunds (especially my senior girl Charlie) have my heart.♥️ I miss loving and caring for all my dog friends from the daycare let me love your animals just as much while you’re gone! I also have experience caring for uncommon animals such as reptiles and invertebrates. I have Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays completely free to care for animals. If needed I could also stop by nights after 5pm on the other days. (Sun-Wed) I will make sure to honor all security protocols that you would like me too and am comfortable with ring cameras or whatever else you need to be comfortable while away from your fur baby.
“Kayla is absolutely amazing with pets! She has watched my cats numerous of times and has done a great job. She is a big animal lover and the most responsible person I know”
“I can't tell you how much I appreciated Julia. She took great care of my senior cat and saw to his comfort and well-being. She took care of my space and made sure everything was neat and clean. I was always in the loop of what was happening with my cat. Came home to a happy and relaxed furbaby.”
“Celina took great care of my cat, giving me peace of mind during my trip away from home. I would recommend her to anyone looking to have their pets cared for.”
“Gladys was amazing as always! We appreciate how communicative she is and our sweet Juno really loves hanging out with her! Gladys is always our first Rover choice 😻”
“Daphne was great! We really appreciated the kindness she showed toward our two kitties, as well as her detailed updates about how they were doing.”
“Paola is wonderful! She sent me photo updates and took the best care of my animals. She carefully monitored how they were doing and let me know with each visit. When my dog did not want to go outside on her visit, she took him out for a short walk to make sure he went to the bathroom. Paola truly knows how to care and connect with animals. I hope she is available in the future for all my pet care needs.”
