Zoey was amazing with our zoo, I mean crew! (We have 3 dogs and 3 cats.) It was our first time using Rover and I was hesitant at first because we've only used sitters who owned their own businesses at the previous places we lived. Zoey is very responsible and conscientious. She really cares for animals and we'll definitely use her again. In fact, we've already booked her for another visit!

Beth took great care of our cat, Rupert. He got attention and brushing time. 😊 Beth was super responsive and made us feel at ease while we were out.

I am absolutely thrilled to share my glowing recommendation for my wonderful neighbor, Beverly, who has gone above and beyond in caring for my beloved dog. From the moment they met, it was evident that this individual had a special connection with animals. She didn't just provide basic care; she showered my dog with love, attention, and a sense of security that is truly unmatched. Her commitment to making my dog feel safe and welcome in her presence has been heartwarming to witness. It's not just about the walks or the feedings; it's about the genuine bond they've formed that speaks volumes about their character and dedication. As someone who cares deeply about my dog's well-being, it's a tremendous relief to know that I can trust Bev implicitly. She has proven time and again that she treats my dog as if he were her own, and that level of care is simply priceless. I can go about my day with complete peace of mind, knowing that my furry friend is in the best hands possible. If you're searching for a dog walker or pet sitter who will treat your pet with the utmost love, respect, and devotion, I wholeheartedly recommend my her. Her passion for animals and her exceptional ability to forge genuine connections make her an absolute gem. Your furry companion will not only be well cared for, but they'll also experience a level of companionship that is truly extraordinary.

Davide was phenomenal!!! The peace of mind that we had on this trip because of the care that Davide was providing to our dog. Our dog needs extra help up the stairs (he’s a big boy over 100 plus pounds), his insulin 2x a day along with pills and eye drops morning evening and night. Davide did everything to perfection. Our dog Simba was happy and in great shape once we returned. Prompt responses and updates from Davide really helped. Thank you Davide we will be reaching out to you more and more!

Jess is hands down the best pet sitter you could ever hire! She has a special way with animals and is kind, thoughtful, and compassionate. I have cats, birds, dogs, and a hamster, and she has taken amazing care of them all. One of my cats and one of my dogs are fearful of strangers. Jess easily worked her way into their hearts and now they adore her as do all of my other animals. Her rates are more than fair for the exceptional service she provides. My animals are my family and leaving them in her care gives me peace of mind, which is priceless. You will not regret hiring her!

About: I have a ten year old German Shorthaired Pointer who’s very energetic and loves to play! I love talking dogs on walks and getting to play with them! I currently have a job during the day, however the schedule is not the same every week, and I do go multiple days without working sometimes. When I’m in your home I will make sure that your pets are safe, healthy, and happy! Spending time with an animal while the owners are gone is very important to me!

Thank you, Paige! We have a new puppy that needs potty breaks while we are at work and Paige was so amazing on her first visit today! We received communication, photos and a follow up! She even took time to check the puppy’s crate for any mess he made the first half of the day! Looking forward to having Paige watch my babies more!

About: I am a service dog handler so I have had 3 years of experience training dogs from puppyhood up to their adult life! My dogs are always cared for and loved and there is no reason that your pet cant be either! I am a college student and I am currently on summer break until late August so I am available every day of the week until then! I will always make sure that your pet(s) are provided the physical/mental stimulation that they need! After anything exerting, there will be a potty break, some water, and a nice nap :) I will stay outside/inside and play with your pet(s) for as long as it is needed for them to exercise! I will also keep track of their meals and make sure they are fed the correct amount at their usual time so that they stick to the routine that you have established with them!

I found Rick very easy to work with and he followed detailed instructions well. My house is on the market and Rick was able to maintain the cleanliness the realtor required for showings. My house and animals were well cared for and I was very pleased with his cooperation and flexibility. I will definitely use Rick again.

Claire did a great job walking and caring for Auggie while I was recovering from a surgery. She immediately bonded with him. Her love for dogs is obvious and she has a good understanding of dog psychology. I will certainly hire her again.

Crystal loves animals and is an awesome pet sitter! Crystal and I met playing intramural sports and she mentioned she loves to pet sit. My dog has stayed with her several times and LOVES her time there. Crystal has a large fenced in yard and spends so much time playing fetch with my dog and taking her on walks. It’s a vacation for my dog too!

Cooper loves Chris! She knows that I love to play catch with my hedge hogs and pays attention to my needs when she takes me out. Chris genuinely cares about her four legged friends and I intend to have her check in on Cooper whenever we'll be out for the entire day.
