Amber was a great sitter for our pup! Sent photos when she was there - it was a quick stay, but I would definitely book her again in the future!

Emily was wonderful. She followed my instructions exactly, and provided periodic updates, so I did not have to worry about my pets’ wellbeing. My dogs loved her and they all cuddled a lot, so my pets were very well taken care of.

About: I have been housesitting in the UK, as you can see from my reviews in photos, but now back in Michigan and reactivating my profile here. I love all animals and am sensitive to their needs and preferences, whether they are affectionate and like a lot of attention or if they are shy and prefer to hide. My usual approach for the first few days is to give treats or otherwise get them to associate me with food, and then they usually can tolerate me from there. :) I know it can be confusing or stressful at first for them to have their family gone and someone else in their house instead, but it's still so much better than going to a kennel, and I like to think of it as being a friend who comes over and helps them enjoy life until their family returns. My general housesitting process is to arrive at the previously-agreed upon date and time, texting a photo and brief message to check-in if owners are already gone. I spend a few minutes connecting with the pets and checking everything over, and then give a potty break and/or walk. From there it's about following all instructions from the owners and making sure the pets are relaxed and comfortable with me in their home, with two walks per day and lots of cuddles and play. I also allow them to sleep on the bed with me. I do not give them human food unless previously instructed -- one exception might be that cheese is a brilliant vehicle for delivering a hidden medication. I send twice daily updates, morning and evening, with photos and a brief report on how it's going and any minor issues or questions. For major issues, which I have not ever experienced, I appreciate having emergency contact information of a local family member or neighbor. I currently work long days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so I can still do overnights on those days, but it would be best if you have someone who can pop in for a potty break a couple times during the day. Otherwise, I am totally free to devote my time to your pets. I spend my last few hours before departure cleaning up after myself, including stripping the bed (if time permits I’ll run through the laundry cycle), vacuuming, wiping down bathroom and kitchen surfaces, and straightening and tidying as needed. Owners can expect to come home to a clean space, in the same or better condition than when I arrived. I do ask that the house is fairly clean upon my arrival. That said, I have worked professionally as a cleaner and organizer, so if you need extra help with cleaning, decluttering, or organizing and would like these services as an add-on, please let me know. It’s a great opportunity to come home to a fresh start. Additional info: -Please double-check that your dates are accurate, as I can only guarantee availability for the dates we agree to and have booked. If it turns out your travel time extends beyond these dates, or if you are delayed, you can check my calendar or ask if I'm available, and I'll do my best to help, but in case I'm not able to, you should have an emergency contact who can help in this scenario. -You can rest assured that I do not cancel. I understand the stress that cancellation places on people, especially since it has been done to me, and this is not something I want to cause. I enjoy repeat customers and positive reviews. :) -Please be sure your pets and home are treated for fleas, as I am going into many different homes with pets. -I do not have guests over, it will be just me in your home. I do not smoke, and I only drink if offered one socially. -As a single woman, for my own security I keep the doors locked at all times and do not answer the landline or door, unless requested by owners and expected ahead of time, such as a delivery. -My fee is a flat rate of $40/night. Rover is setup to charge per pet and I can't modify it until after a request comes in, which I can then customize. So if you have multiple pets and are quoted $40/pet when requesting, don't let it stop you, I will adjust the quote to the flat rate of $40/night if we decide to book. If you have more than two dogs, I have an additional rate of $15/extra dog to cover extra walks and cleaning. -I am fine to use Rover TOS for the first sit. I also have my own simple contract if you prefer. Thank you for reading and entrusting your pets and home to my care! I currently work long days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so I can still do overnights on those days, but it would be best if you have someone who can pop in for a potty break a couple times during the day. Otherwise, I am totally free to devote my time to your pets. I do not have any pets at home at this time, which is one reason I am free to petsit and enjoy it so much. I give pets my full attention and make them my priority. I keep the house in tidy condition during my stay, and clean up after myself thoroughly upon departure.

My first time leaving my pet with someone and Kelly made me feel safe the whole time! She offered to help out last minute, and took incredible care of my dog and house full of kitties. She didn’t even get mad when one of them peed on her!!! Would recommend Kelly to absolutely anyone and am so grateful to have her help, it’s hard to find people to trust with your pets but Kelly is definitely one of them <3

I am more than happy with the service provided by Megan (and Scott). I asked they take Frank on a walk because he had been crated for a few hours, feed him and just hang out for a while. They went beyond, by taking him on 2 walks, sending several pictures of a smiley happy dog and communicating throughout the visit what Frank was up to. They are friendly, knowledgeable about dogs and training, timely and reliable. We were at ease being gone for so long knowing Frank was in good hands. I will absolutely use them again when we need someone to take care of our boy.

Mark is outstanding. Not only did he take great care of my 3 dogs and 2 cats, but he was an excellent communicator. He sent a full written report each day and sent so many pictures. We came home to a clean house and happy pets. He was very helpful when we almost missed our connecting flight and reassured me that he would be there for us if we did miss it. We travel a lot and I will never use another pet sitter if I can help it. Mark took care of my pets like I take care of them and that’s saying a lot bc I’m a bit crazy for my furbabies. Highly recommend!

Nikki was wonderful to our dogs. She took great care of them and we would 100% hire her again. She sent photos during her stay and was easy to communicate with. Our dogs were beyond happy in the photos— it was evident she was a great fit for the two of them.

I've been using Emily for my pet needs while I'm away for a few years now and have always felt comfort knowing she's there with them. She's very reliable and is caring with my fur kiddos. I have several cats that have different needs and medication and she's always on it! I never have to worry about being away while they are in her care. Thank you Emily for all that you do!!

Linda has been our pet sitter for several years now. She is absolutely amazing with our dog Bronco who is a pit bull mix and our 3 cats. Because of her vet tec background I know my fur babies will get their meds property and without any issues. She treats them as if they were her own pets, even buying them a Christmas present or two during the holidays. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who need a sitter for a long trip or just drop ins for a daily walk.

I cannot say enough positive things about Kyle. We went on vacation for a week and he came over and took care of Zeus for us. He definitely kept Zeus happy and active whole we were gone. Kyle made sure to send us pics and updates a couple times a day. Although Zeus was happy to see us when we got home, I could tell he was still looking for Kyle to back back over. I'm so glad we found someone to spoil and take great care of our giant furbaby.

Joseph is one of the calmest and most loving individuals I personally have met in my life. When it comes to animals especially his own they always come first. I have yet to see anything stray him away from always being there for his dogs. This man is well trusted amongst family and friends. He will happily watch my dog and cat for days on end if needed and I can always rely on them to be properly cared for. If you ever need someone this is 100% your person.

Anita loves animals just as much as they love her. My Great Pyrenees both try to sit in her lap at the same time whenever she arrives. She is calm and conscientious and I would recommend her for any pet owners looking for great pet help.

I have known Melissa for years and have watched her take care of her own dog and cat…. But they are far more then her pets, they are her family. There is no one I trust more with my dog, Bear then her. When he is with her, he’s family too and I never had a concern when she’s watching him. I couldn’t speak more highly of her.
