House Sitting in Highland Park Southern Tip, Richmond, VA
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Rosemary did SUCH a good job with house- & dog-sitting my pup in my apartment. Her attention to detail with the care instructions I gave, and how well she accommodated lots of instructions for a higher-maintenance dog, gave me so much peace of mind as I was out of town. I'll be booking her again when I'm traveling next! Thank you!!”
“She is amazing! Our dog was obviously pampered and much more relaxed than usual when we get back. I’ve never been so confident that she was treated well and our house was exceptionally well cared for as well. She even taught our old dog a new game. 100% recommended.”
“Mackenzie tool great care of our two dogs! She sent cute pics and left our house in good shape. Our pups were calm and happy when we got back. I wouldn't hesitate to book Mackenzie again!”
“Kelly took absolutely stellar care of my cat Ophie and my apartment while I was out of town for two weeks. She was incredibly flexible, communicative and accommodating (I even needed to extend my trip two times at the last minute). Most importantly, she worked true magic with my cat, who is usually very standoffish with anyone other than myself and tends to shut down if I go away for any amount of time due to separation anxiety. After just a few days Ophie was letting Kelly brush her and hanging out in the main room, going about her usual routine. By the end of the trip she was actually hanging out with Kelly on the couch!! I've genuinely never seen her so at ease with anyone other than myself in all 11 years of her life. I couldn't be happier with the service Kelly provided. It's one thing to know you pet is being taken good care of while you're away. It's an entirely different matter to know that they're actually enjoying themselves too! Kelly was able to give me that peace of mind and I couldn't be more grateful. I returned from my trip to a spotless apartment and a very happy kitty. I will absolutely be reaching out to her again the next time I need to go out of town! Thanks Kelly!!”
“Katelyn was such a great sitter. She helped by staying at our home over the holidays, thoughtfully caring for both our pups and home. Very attentive to our dogs needs and provided regular updates. Would highly recommend!!”
“Sophia did a wonderful job taking care of my cat and dog overnight! My dog is scared of new people but Sophia went above and beyond to meet her twice before staying over. Zena warmed up to her after a bit so I appreciate Sophia’s patience with her! Now Zena’s looking forward to her next play date! Thank you!”
“Becca was great! so good with Luna, when i came home, i think she was hoping to see her again, will definitely, hire again! Such a great experience vs. kennels where is seems more impersonal and the little dogs literally get the short end of the stick.”
“Amanda was an amazing sitter! She sent great updates and photos of her time with our pups and they absolutely adored her. It was great knowing that they were in good hands while we were gone and we will absolutely use her sitting services in the future!”
“Elizabeth was great! My dog took to her right away. It was my first time leaving my dog at home without me, and she can get very anxious about change. The weekend went off without a hitch.”
“Chloe was so good with our pup! She was great with communication and sent the cutest pictures! She also stayed a bit later while we were running late!”

About: I just retired & have lots of time on my hands. I enjoy pets & have reliable transportation to get where I need to go. It’s a good fit because I just retired June 7th and I believe pet sitting will work for me. I’m really an active retiree, but I can make it work. I can’t watch peoples pets at my apartment, but I can watch peoples pets at their home. I can walk your pets and spend time with them.

“Katelyn has house sat and dog sat for me multiple times and is always someone I can trust while I’m away. I have two big labs and two French bulldogs that can be a handful, but Katelyn always takes great care of them and my house! It always looks super clean when I come back, which is always nice after being away.”
“Third times a charm! Amber is our go to first choice for watching our pup and house when we go out of town. Now that her and my pup Cleo are friends, Cleo gets so excited to see Amber come through the door. As always she took great care of our pup, sent tons of pictures, washed sheets, and left the house very clean! We will continue to request her time & again 😎”
“Jordan was awesome! She came by for a meet and greet prior to our trip, and she communicated with me each day to give a report. We came home to 3 calm, happy and well cared-for pets as well as a clean house! Having Jordan stay with our pets gave us comfort and allowed us to have a completely stress-free time away! I highly recommend Jordan C - outstanding pet sitter!”
“Jenel did an outstanding job! She was attentive and communicative the whole time. I felt very confident that the kitties were in very capable hands!”

“Lexy was a great dog sitter! She sent me pictures of my dog every day and I came home to clean apartment and a happy pup. Definitely will book with her again!”
“This was my first time using Rover - let alone letting someone house sit! After my initial meeting with Robin, I felt very comfortable as she was very attentive about all the information I gave her (taking notes!) of the place and my precious cats! Robin was very communicative while I was away to include pictures of my babies - she even provided a photo of a concerning bowel movement for my cat! Which she cleaned up very thoroughly. I was very impressed with the care she provided my cats and even to my space. Everything was exactly how I left it - clean and organized. She even washed the blanket :) Robin is the best and will exceed your expectations!”
