“This was our first time using Rover and it was a great experience thanks to Linda! Linda went above and beyond to care for our cat while we were away for the holidays and we will definitely be reaching out to her again! She sent detailed updates and pictures at every visit, took the time to interact with him, and was very receptive to completing a couple of other little tasks at my request.”
“Great work from Angie, always on time, nails all the details, and gives our pups plenty of attention. Great photos, excellent care, super flexible. Very pleased!”

About: I’ve been taking care of dogs since I was a little kid, I also have worked at a pet store so I can help with any toy leash or food recommendations for your pets needs! I’m currently working a part-time job second shift so I’ll have all my mornings free as well as weekends completely free! I also love to take dogs to the park as long as that is OK with the owners. I do have a dog of my own that loves to meet new friends as long as you’re OK with it. She does great with all sizes! I also have many toys and treats for your companions as well!
“Sabrina is always prompt and great with my dogs! I’m very happy to find someone to help with them while I’m at work 🥰”
“- made sure to send pictures and let me know what they did during the visits. - was in close communication about any changes She even stood out in the rain to keep the dogs company and make they went potty. She really went above and beyond to make sure the dogs were comfortable while we were gone and it was apparent in how comfortable the dogs were with her through the pictures.”
“Jen took great care of my kitty. She was so sweet and so kind. I love getting pictures of him while I was away, and it really took a huge load off my mind to know that somebody was coming to take care of him every day. Thank you thank you thank you!”
“Kristen is great! She sends updates and takes excellent care of my dog. Super reliable and responsive. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a dog sitter or walker.”
About: I originally started my pet care experience as a pet sitter for my neighbors during high school. My family had never owned a dog, but after I proved to my mom that I was responsible enough to care for someone else's pet, we got a dog of our own. Since then, I have cared for four dogs of my own at two separate households. They range in size from 10lbs-115lbs and I am therefore comfortable with dogs of any size. One of my pets has severe allergies so I am very familiar with food restrictions and the administration of medications for pets. I look forward to treating your pet as my own and developing a bond that makes them feel comfortable when you are unable to be there. I currently work as a teacher. I am gone weekday 6:30-3:30, but have full day availability during Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and summer break. Weekend availability is wide-open throughout the year. I have a fenced in-yard and love to take my dogs on walks. We focus on both mental and physical stimulation in our home to ensure dogs are thoroughly exercised.
“Marjorie is a very well animal care giver, she loves them with all of her heart. When ever she can get a chance to pet them she will pet them and give them lovings, she also is always taking care of them and making sure they have food or water.”
“Everything was great! The pups were happy and well cared for.”
“Mikendra is very good with pets. She watched my dog Jumper for me a couple weeks ago and he loves her. He was happy to go on walks and play with her. Would definitely recommend her to take care of your fur babies!”
“Will be using her in the future. Very turn key and didn’t have to worry one bit if Riley was being taken care of.”
“Jessica was wonderful with my 2 cats. She dropped in once a day to make sure they had food and water and a clean litter box. But most of all gave them some attention!! I felt very comfortable having her take care of them. She sent pictures everyday!”
About: Hello :) I am a stay at home mom in Fort Wayne with plenty of free time to care for your pets when you’re unable to. I have been a pet parent my whole life and I understand that they need more than just food and water while you’re away. I also rely on pet sitters when I am out of town so I know it can be a bit nerve wracking to leave your fur babies in the hands of a stranger. I can send picture and video updates to put your mind at ease! I am happy to drop in, play, walk, and love on your baby a few times a day while you’re gone. I’ll also check around the house for any accidents if you would like so you don’t come home to a mess. I am almost always free. I homeschool my 3 and 6 year old daughters and we love to get out of the house every day. Dropping in to love on your pets would fit into our schedule perfectly :) At each visit, I will take your dogs out to walk/run around (weather permitting). I will also engage them in some good play time inside to let them burn off some energy or just soak up some attention. I will send regular updates to let you know that they’re doing well or to report any concerns.
“Thank you Jennifer! Ziggi looks beautiful in the pictures so I know she was happy and comfortable with you!”
“Mason was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend him as a pet sitter! He went out of his way to make sure my high anxiety golden retreiver felt at ease while we were away. He made extra trips and extended his hours to make sure Bodie felt safe in our absence. He well surpassed our expectations and we will always request him to take care of our fur babies!!”
About: Growing up with a dog, I am familiar with potty breaks, feeding schedules, walking/playing, and bath time hacks. When I moved out of my parents home I took on dog sitting as a side time gig. I have 4 families I watch and take care of their fur babies as needed and came to Rover to find more! I also have raised a puppy of my own - Murphy! Lots of experience with all stages of life. Currently I am in between jobs and have lots of free time. My ideal full time job will be remote based which will open up my availability as well. My goal for your pet is to keep their schedules on track and keep their tails waggin! The dog is the priority and I fully intend on making sure their needs are met before leaving the home.
“Jordan has done a great job with my 2 year old goldendoodle and 6 year old chihuahua! Takes them for regular walks, and makes sure to have lots of playtime with my energetic pups. He is the best!”
“Javonte is a very responsible person and he loves animals. He has three animals of his own two dogs and one cat. They are very well taken care of. He has taken care of my animals before I have two cats, a dog, and a horse. Everything is always perfect and I never have problems. He would be a perfect fit for all animals when they need taken care of.”
