Did a great job with my cats (the one who will actually interact with humans, that is). House looked great and Carri went above and beyond!

About: I’ve owned dogs my entire life, currently have three and are getting another at the end of the summer! In addition, I grew up owning a cat, she passed when I was about 16. I currently work at a doggy daycare&boarding facility, and have worked there for a couple years. I am super passionate about animals and am currently in college with the goal of becoming a small animal veterinarian I am currently working part time at a doggy daycare/boarding facility. I will be as accommodating and flexible as possible, as well as being transparent about my schedule. (WILL BE MOVING IN AUGUST FOR COLLEGE SO PLEASE DO NOT SCHEDULE ANYTHING AFTER 8/12) First and foremost, for my safety and that of your fur babies, I will require meeting your pet in your home with you present beforehand so that your pet can be comfortable with me being in their space. This pertains to any situation where I will be going into your home unaccompanied. I will follow your pet’s routine to the best of my ability and treat them as if they were my own.

Kaylee & Nick watched my dog while I was out of town for a week long vacation and I couldn’t trust anyone more. I know my dog was well taken care of and had so much fun around the farm too! I also received updates daily about his time spent with them! Very much recommend!

Jessica did an excellent job dropping in 5 times a day to take care of our crabby 14 year old toy poodle. She gave her medications 4 times a day and sent pictures regularly. We highly recommend her.

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.

Easily the best sitter I've had from this app. She communicates well, goes above and beyond, sends so many photos, and is a lovely human. I've booked with three pet sitters in total on Rover and she shines above the rest. I can tell she genuinely enjoys this job and cares about my pets well-being. I'm usually so anxious leaving my cats for long periods of time, but not at all with Maegan. I don't think words can properly express how wonderful she is!

Emma was a huge help watching our two dogs at the last minute. We have a 7 year old rescue Rottweiler mix and a 6 year old beagle mix. She came over to our house before to meet the dogs - they both took to her right away! Emma sent pictures while we were away and gave our girls lots of love. We are very appreciative and knew our pups were in good hands!

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.

About: I’ve taken care of pets my entire life and I’m currently working as a kennel assistant/weekend boarding manager. I’ve also worked as a veterinary assistant so I am well equipped to handle all pets of all sizes, ages, and breeds. I’m currently working part time so my schedule is pretty flexible. I work at a doggy daycare in the mornings on Monday, Tuesday, and Fridays, and 7-11 + 2-5 on weekends. I am available for pet/house sitting on weekends if you and your pet(s) are comfortable with my schedule. Weekdays are very flexible for me. At the clients home i will walk them or let out in a fenced yard whatever is available to make sure your pet is well cared for. For yards I will pick up any waste your pet leaves behind. I am also more than happy to take your dog for a walk around a trail or neighborhood or wherever U would like me to.
