“We have used Rover for over two years for house sitting and dog sitting Joshua exceeded our expectations with constant contact, and with the loving care of our three fur babies. He will always be the first one we will try to book for our future needs.”

About: I’ve had multiple types of animals from the moment I was born, and been a die hard animal lover ever since. I am a certified veterinary assistant and I currently work at a pet resort, so I’m experienced and knowledgeable in how to take care of all your pets needs! I currently have two cats, a 13 year old female who’s my cranky old lady and a 2 year old male who’s super rambunctious! I also have two German shepherds, so I can very easily handle large breed dogs. I can gladly walk, care for, and play with all your fur babies! Every animal I come across gets the same love and attention I’d give my own babies. Being in the veterinary medicine field I have plenty of hands on experience when it comes to caring for and handling all types of animals and all their specials needs. I am able to give oral and injectable medications no problem, follow any specific diet regimes, as well as handle any food aggressive dog with ease. I do work at a pet resort currently, but my schedule is still pretty flexible. I do not drive but still easily get around and always arrive anywhere I need to be promptly and on time. If you live outside of my service radius I reserve the right to charge and extra fee (up to $50) for transportation to your home. Thank you for your understanding! My shepherds are indoor/outdoor, they are crate trained, house broken, and get lots of play time and exercise in the form of walks and outside games of fetch. My cats are indoor only, litterbox trained, and get lots of love and playtime. All the animals also get spoiled with treats and tons of attention! I’d treat your animals the same I would my own, make sure they’re happy and healthy and taken care of. Being trained in the veterinary medicine field, I can also safely take care of any special medical needs or restrictions your fur babies may have as well.
“Liz is amazing with my fur baby. She is highly knowledgeable about dogs. I especially love that she is a veterinary assistant!!! I truly recommend her.”
“Lizbeth has been my biggest help with my dog. Whenever I need someone to look out for my husky rocky, I can trust Lizbeth will give him the care he needs. He can be a bit high maintenance but liz always handles the situation greatly 😊”
About: I've been looking after pets since I was 12, from neighbor to family pets. My responsibilities have extended from walking the pets to sleeping next to them so they'll feel at ease. Puppies and cats have been trusted upon me and I can confidently say that I'm a puppy expert. I've worked with many different dogs and I've loved every single one. Anything that your pup or kitty requires will be my top priority. I am currently a stay at home wife, so for pups that need to be under constant watch there is no problem, I'll be available. This also goes for senior dogs who may have to be let outside more often. I'm fully available to the needs of your pets! My way of caring for a pet will always be based off of what you as an owner tells me needs to be done. My goal is to try to keep your pert as comfortable as possible while their mom and dad are gone. I'm a stickler for rules and every pet owner has a certain way of doing things with their pet and I will abide by that routine to keep your pet stress free.
“We found Savannah, talked with her, and decided to book her. We were gone for 9 days. Savannah sent us pictures and updates of Indiana almost daily. She spent the nights and cared for Indiana very well. We felt secure that he was in good hands. Indiana was very happy to have Savannah, and he responded very well to her. We would recommend Savannah as a pet and house sitter and will use her again!”
“Sarah was fabulous! Constantly sent me pics of pup throughout the day!”
“Emily was so great. She came to meet Simba the day before to ease my worries and have a smooth transition when I left him. She kept in contact the entire time I was away with texting and pictures. She left my apartment even cleaner than it was when I left. I highly recommend her.”
“My first experience with this service, and Sydney made it a wonderful one. I felt confident my doggie was being cared for, and that meant I could relax. Sydney sent updates and pictures too.. Thank you Sydney!”
About: I've had several cats and dogs in my life. I've shared a complete lifetimes with both animals and would do it again every time, without a doubt. I have the most free time on the weekend and my days off. I do have a full time job during the week, working for a bakery. I go over as much info as I can to make sure I know what is safe and allowed for the pet to play, eat and sleep. I will also make sure they have fun, whether that's playing at home to taking them to the local park.
“Shannon did great with my two dogs while we were out of the country for 10 days. We were in the emergency room with one of my dogs just days before for his seizures. He takes a lot of medications and she did great with him, she also stayed with the boys nearly full time and communicated with me when she did leave. She even went and picked up my dogs prescription for me too. Great dog sitter!”
“Oli is a WONDERFUL pet sitter, who I think my dog loved more than I did! She sent frequent updates, was perfectly on time and left our space clean and tidy! So thankful to have a trustworthy person to rely on and who loves our guy when we’re away! HIGHLY recommend!”
About: I’ve been around every type of pets since I was 8 including dogs, cats to birds and goats. Everyone in my family trust me to take care of their babies and I enjoy spending time with them. At the moment I have my girl Athena who is a German Shepard/Doberman Mix and is turning two soon. I work full time at Sherwin Williams Paint Store but I do get out at 3:30pm everyday Monday to Friday. After that I always have the rest of the day off. In my free time I spend it at the park with Athena or at the gym. I take care of my Athena like she is my whole world she is a bit spoiled and goes on walks three time a day and eats twice a day. I mainly feed her a Raw/Kibble diet. I would treat your babies like they were mine. I will follow any instructions you give me and be able to accommodate any requests as well
“Maya was the most considerate and kind young woman that I could ask for in a dog sitter. She took care of my old little chihuahua with such affection. I can tell she has a real passion for animals and you will not regret going with her for anything that you might need for your pets.”
“Berlyn was super sweet and loving with my dogs. Her communication was on another level, she kept me updated on my pups and that made my trip so much more comfortable. I would trust her with my home and my dogs anytime! Thank you!”
“Sidney was absolutely amazing!! It was our first time using Rover and she put us at ease the moment we met for a little meet-and-greet with our crew. She sent videos and pictures everyday which we absolutely loved. We had two dogs and a cat, all with their own special quirks, and Sidney was so great with all three. Our vacation was stress-free knowing she was there and she left the house in perfect order for when we returned. We can’t recommend her enough (in fact, we bragged about her to the family our entire trip 😂) and will absolutely be booking her again.”
“Alejandro has had 3 dogs. His first, Valo, was a border collie mix with a great temperament. He trained Valo as a puppy, quickly housebreaking him, and teaching basic commands. He's patient with his pets and consistent with training, which is key when teaching all pets anything new. Valo was taught to be patient around kids and protective of his family. Alex now has two smaller breed dogs who he has trained and taught tricks to. He's still as patient as ever with animals, including birds! You can count on him to treat your furry family member as one of his own while in his care.”
