She was confident when first meeting my pet and was super quick to respond after my original sitter dropped out last minute. She's a great house-sitter. She left my place cleaner than she found it, and helped Butters gain new experiences!

Danielle was very conscientious, organized and communicated well while caring for our dog. She sent pictures and left our home in the same condition we left it in. I highly recommend her!

Andrea's first time with Kade was awesome. She double checked with me ahead of time on days/times needed, had a great experience with Kade during her time with him(and vice versa) and when I had some car problems coming back from my trip she gladly helped stay longer! I appreciate her help and would recommend for future sitting needs.

About: I have taken care of pets since I was 8 years old. I can take pets to appointments, walk, feed and give medications and vaccinations. I can take care of furbabies full-time; weekdays and weekends. Overnight, early mornings and everything in between. I can drive pets to vet appointments as well, to save busy parents some time. I have a fenced in yard plus two sweet cats and two sweet doggies. Very friendly household with lots of toys, snuggles and treats :)

Katie has been pet sitting for me for years! She loves my pets like I do so I don't worry when I take a vacation how my pets are doing. I have 2 dogs and 4 cats. They are all on special foods and the dogs cannot have some foods as it makes them sick. Katie is very attentive to that and they have never gotten sick when she has watched them. She exercises them, takes them to play ball, and just is an overall fantastic pet sitter!

About: With a lifelong passion for dogs and over two decades of hands-on experience caring for both dachshunds and Beagles in my childhood home, I bring a wealth of knowledge and dedication to pet care. From puppyhood to senior years, I've nurtured and cherished these beloved companions, mastering the art of feeding, grooming, exercise, and companionship. Whether it's a playful romp in the park or a comforting snuggle at home, I understand the unique needs and quirks of dogs, providing attentive and tailored care with a genuine love for furry friends. With me, your precious pups are in capable and caring hands. Balancing the demands of part-time nursing with my passion for pet care is a harmonious blend that enriches both my professional and personal life. As a nurse, my schedule offers flexibility, allowing me to dedicate quality time to ensuring the well-being of both human and furry patients. Whether it's a morning walk before a shift or an evening cuddle session after work, I seamlessly integrate pet care into my routine, prioritizing the physical and emotional needs of my four-legged clients. My nurturing nature extends beyond the hospital walls, as I provide compassionate care and unwavering attention to detail in tending to the health and happiness of pets entrusted to my care. From administering medications to offering comfort during anxious moments, my role as a part-time nurse complements my commitment to fostering the holistic wellness of both people and their beloved pets. I work at a clinic, so I have an hour lunch with four hour shifts before and after. So I can also take dogs on walks during my lunch as well. I have an open front yard, but have used leashes in the front yard that are able to be put in the ground with a long leash. I also provide ample mental and physical stimulation indoors through interactive toys, enrichment activities, and supervised playtime to help fulfill pets' needs while minimizing outdoor risks.

Belle was great watching my dogs, even if it was only for a night. Even wrote out report cards for them, which was a nice personal touch. Would definitely recommend her, especially since she has experience with all kinds of dogs!

Rover made this transaction incredibly smooth. Chrissy is exactly the kind of person you want watching your dogs. She texted us photos twice a day and let us know what was going on. We came home to happy dogs and a clean home. Thank you. *****

About: I’ve had a dog since I was young so I know how to care for pets. I can provide them with companionship and care for you. I am currently available during most days of the week between the hours of 8:30 and 3 p.m. I am flexible with most schedules so just reach out and we can work something out. I am very detail oriented and I feel that helps when caring for a pet. I have a dog of my own so I understand how important it is to trust the person who is taking care of them.

Brad did an amazing job housesitting and caring for my little Doxiepoo Lodi! He kept in great communication while I was out of town, and even brought Lodi some treats! I never had to worry about the care of my dog while Brad was taking care of him. Took him on regular walks and breaks outside. Felt secure having someone at my home over the New Year Holiday. Please contact Brad for any of your Rover needs. He will go above and beyond and deliver fantastic results. Our family will be booking Brad for any future needs. Even though he lives about an hour from the Cedar Rapids area, if you have a need be will help you out! Thanks Brad! We are glad Lodi has a new friend.

About: I grew up with cats dogs and a variety of other animals in my home. I have cared for other peoples pets throughout college and today and fostered cats through local SPCA and humane society. I am comfortable with a variety of small pets in addition to cats and dogs, and am happy to answer and questions you may have. Just as I care for my own two cats and any foster cats I’ve had, it is a priority in my routine to make sure all animals have what they need. I have flexibility in my work schedule to be able to come and go during the day if need be. In my home when I do not have foster kittens I have a separate room that animals can stay in. My cats are fully vetted and never allowed to interact with guest animals. If my cats being in the house is a stressor they can go stay the night at my significant others house. Keeping every animal as comfortable and safe as possible is my top priority
