“Wonderful experience. Blythe was great!”
About: I have many years of experience taking care of not just dogs and cats but exotic animals as well such as fish, birds, and reptiles! I also have extensive experience in administering medications to animals. I work full time as an animal keeper from 9-5 Friday-Tuesday. I am available all day Wednesday and Thursday and I am also available to do drop in visits before and after I go to work. I understand that different pets have different needs. And I follow instructions explicitly. I also know how much pet owners miss their fur babies when away so I make a point to send picture and updates.
“Dawn is a warm & friendly person; clearly an animal lover. She was timely, reliable, and a good communicator. Will rebook for weekly dog walks.”
About: I’ve been pet sitting for family and friends as a young adult for years now. Wether it be a short walk or a weekend stay, I’m just happy to help! I’m a student working for home so I’m always available to go in spontaneous walks! As my semester schedules come out all update my availability accordingly. I have a large backyard and live in a friendly neighborhood with lots of trails and foliage! I’m happy to take them for runs as well.
“Rosemary was amazing! She sent frequent updates about how Sully was doing and was always on time. We knew Sully was in great hands with Rosemary, which made being out of town and away from home a lot less stressful. Thanks for everything, Rosemary! Sully can’t wait to see you again soon!”
About: I grew up with dogs in my house ever since I was born! I’ve been providing in-home and pet sitting and care services along with pet check ins and walks for about seven years! I always make sure that pet owners feel comfortable leaving their pets in my hands! I’m currently working at home part time while in between jobs, so I have a very flexible schedule during the day and evenings. I’m available for check-ins and walks during the day, and in-home pet boarding on weekends and weekdays. In client homes, I always triple check gates, fences, and crate doors while also making sure nothing is out that could hurt a pet. Additionally, I always make sure to ask a client exactly what they need for their pet to be cared for, and I always follow through. If I’m in someone else’s home, I make sure doors are locked, the pet has enough water and food, and leave the home in the same or better condition than when I arrived.

“Lee is responsible, attentive, and hard working. He's cared for people's pets for many years including walking, feeding, and tertiary care. Your furry friends are in good hands under his watch!”
“Zeya is amazing with animals, especially dogs. She is responsible and caring in her work. As a dog groomer, she has special training with dogs. She is my favorite pet caregiver on the planet.”
“I've known Laurie for several years now and she is one of the sweetest humans I know! Laurie watches my girl Callie May often and she is so good with her! She takes her on long walks and spends a lot of quality time with her. I always know she's in very good hands when I leave her with Laurie!”
“Katharine has grown up with dogs her entire life -- big and small, friendly and not so friendly. She has also dog-sat for many families for multiple days. She is responsible, thoughtful in the care of the dogs and the home the pets live in.”
About: I've grown up with all kinds of animals. Dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, turtles, gerbils, horses, goats, you name it! As an extremely attuned, observant, compassionate and loving individual, I have a huge soft spot for animals. I know how important your pet is because I have grown up having had to say goodbye to mine. I also have almost lost my present cat. He is 10 years old and I have raised him since he was 8 weeks. We have moved internationally and cross country multiple times, and he has gone through an emergency surgery as well as dental surgery. With these challenges, I truly understand the responsibility, love and commitment being a pet owner requires! I also believe that our animals choose us, just as much as we choose them. I know how nerve-wracking it can be to leave your fur baby, they are our companions! Rest assured, I treat your pet as I do mine -- with the utmost patience, love and attention they deserve. I am about quality, not quantity. The quality of a visit, I believe (as well as the quality of ones life) is what matters most. Though this is my first time as a Rover sitter, I have over 6 years of experience caretaking for my friends and neighbors pets. With my love for animals coupled with having a flexible schedule due to working from home, I wanted to become a Rover sitter. I hope you would allow me the honor to check in on, play with and love your pet while you're away! I have a flexible schedule as I work from home. That means I can drop in during the early mornings, evenings or even mid-day if desired. To me, home should be a safe place and a sanctuary. I will treat your home just as I do mine. With attention, cleanliness, and respect.
“Alex walked my dog a few times when I was out of town for travel. She was super communicative and shared lots of pics. Will be using her services again.”
“Hello, animal lovers! I have had much success using Rover and I highly recommend Lindsey to be a part of the team. I've had the pleasure of seeing her interact with many animals over the years; she is your modern-day Elliza Thornberry! She has a feline of her own and its obvious how much they love each other. She helped care for my cat with special needs. I have seen her administer medicine and single handedly bath a cat, walking away without a scratch. Her assertive and gentle demeanor makes her the perfect Canidate. Have a Magical Day, Kate”
About: I've taken care of my own dogs for years so Ill treat your pet like they're my own baby , they deserve to be treated special , have time spent with them, cuddle with, giving kisses just like they would get at home due to most dogs suffer from separation anxiety they miss you badly I know my Pandora does , I just like to make them know there going to be ok and Mommy and Daddy is coming back ! I can take your baby out for a routine walk in the morning and in the afternoon or help with the weekly routine, get there exercise God knows I need mine Lol ! It helps me be organized to stay on a routine. In my home if I’m in my front yard I would have them on a leash probably just take them for a walk. In my backyard it’s fenced so I could let them out put stay out side with them just to make sure they didn’t get out somehow or jump the fence you just never know what’s going to happen I would do the same thing at the clients house also . My pandora is crate trained so when I leave she gets a treat and takes a nap that’s her safe haven place she just goes in and out of there all day by herself anyway. I would think some peoples are like that also . It’s just to make sure she doesn’t get into anything while I’m gone .
“Bree is so reliable and communicative! We needed a last minute dog walker and she came to our rescue. Our pets love when she gets to stop by the house. Thanks again!”
“It’s a relief to have Steven look after your furry friend when out of town! I would absolutely use him any time going forward. Great experience”
“Arianna took great care of my girl Luna, I loved the pictures and updates and it's clear they both really enjoyed each other's company. She was also very prompt and right on time with walks, and super nice to deal with. I would definitely recommend her and would happily book with her again.”
“Juliana was great! She was super friendly and my dogs loved her. I definitely recommend! Thank you for helping us Juliana!”
“Thanks Gray for the excellent attention & care you gave to my pup today during his walk! Really appreciate your timely communication & last minute availability!”
