Monica was amazing! Her summaries and photos when taking care of our two pups were hilarious. Definitely recommend her and we will for sure be asking her to watch our pups again!

Jenevieve totally saved our vacation! I had originally hired another Rover sitter to drop in on our dog while we were on vacation. The other sitter didn't show up for 2 visits. Luckily I was able to book super last minute with Jenevieve and she is awesome! She was always there on time to take care of my dog. He is 15 and takes heart meds, so it's important that he gets them twice a day. She seemed to really care for my dog and sent pictures every visit. I was totally impressed with her attention to his care. If you are looking for a great sitter, look no further!

Kiara did an amazing job with our kitties while we were away for a few days. She was an excellent communicator, kind and very easy to work with, and our cats took to her immediately (even our suspicious younger one!). We have an older cat with some medical needs and Kiara put our minds fully at ease with her extensive experience fostering and caring for numerous animals. I would highly recommend her!

Katie was such a fantastic help in keeping an eye on our two cats while we were away on an extended vacation. She provided us updates, brought in packages that had been delivered, and really helped us have peace of mind that our pets were in good hands. Thank you so much Katie for your help. We appreciate you so much!

Keturah took care of my dogs during my workdays for a handful of years. I have a chiweenie (who frequently gets eye infections) and a nervous yorkie who requires a certain diet. She's always done great with them and still gets excited to see both of my dogs. I still reach out to her when I'm going out of town. Very reliable girl and loving towards my little guys. I've always been grateful for her.

About: I've taken care of dogs since I was 5 years old. Dogs need a loving companion and enough attention and food and water and love. Currently unemployed so always available, Monday to Sunday anytime of the day, I can come there or you can come to me whatever works, thank you! I live in an apartment and I let them go out on the balcony. They don't bother the neighbors and most of my neighbors have dogs.

Maddy is awesome! She went above and beyond to take care of my dogs over the 9 days. When she saw my dog was scared during a storm, she stayed and comforted her. Communication was friendly and timely-I looked forward to the updates. Already working on the next visit. Thank you!

Very knowledgeable, engaged, timely, and kept me up to speed after each visit with notes and lots of photos. Javon made house visits to care for my attention-loving, high energy goof dog and aloof old-man cat. The boys are happy, which is a night and day difference from the times we chose to do conventional boarding.

Kaitlin is an AMAZING gal with soooo much love for doggos! Kaitlin is incredibly reliable and loyal. Kaitlin is that gal at the farmers market asking to let your dog, she is drawn to the love dogs give. My dog Blanch and I love having her join on our long walks, (blanch is also a BIG fan of our buddy Kaitlin.). Kaitlin is one of the few people in this world that I would trust to take care of Blanch.

Tabatha was wonderful. She was able to adjust her schedule once one of my other cat sitters was unable to make it. I also extended her services one day which she was happy to accept. I highly recommend her. She followed the instructions perfectly. My Chloe was very happy to see her.

About: I have grown up with and cared for cats my entire life. I have also owned a large breed size dog and been fur friends with many, many other pups. After a short stint of working in the office, I am back home 7 days a week again! This will ensure lots of time & attention with your fur friend! We’re excited to be back!!! 🐾 I live in an apartment complex, but a fenced in area is directly behind my building if that’s what you prefer for your pet. Its a quieter neighborhood with not a lot of traffic so it’s nice to take walks in too 🙂
