Gabriella did a wonderful job with our Aussiedoodle, Scout. We felt very comfortable with her in our home. She sent updates and pictures daily. I appreciated her keeping me updated on how things were going. When she came back to our house a few days later, to drop off something, Scout was excited and happy to see her. I would highly recommend Gabriella to anyone needing pet care.

Kylie took such great care of our Cubby. We unfortunately had a very cold spell during her stay and she was nice helping out with watching out for our pipes…above and beyond. I know Cubby had such a great time with her and we are so appreciative. ❤️ Great communication and everything at home in order.

Lily was our first Rover experience and we couldn't be happier! We had her house sit with 3 dogs at our place, and despite the rain (and muddy back yard) I think our house was actually cleaner when we came home than when we left! Great communication throughout, and the dogs got plenty of walks. Will book again.

Jaimin did such a fantastic job watching my dog! My dog is nervous meeting new people and can be a lot to handle, but Jaimin followed all of my instructions perfectly and my dog now has a new friend! I’d highly recommend Jaimin!

Jessica cared for my two puppies wonderfully. They were happy and healthy when I came home after a five day trip. I absolutely needed to be able to trust her with staying in my home and she came through. I am so thankful I booked her!

Angela is very kind and compassionate, she did a great job caring for our fur babies. She transported two of them back and forth to daycare while we were gone so they could maintain their regular routine and she made sure everyone got their medications as scheduled. Highly recommend her, will definitely use her again.

Katie was great! She was punctual and super sweet with our three pups. Our pups are bit crazy and can be a handful but Katie handled them so well. Our dogs loved her so much that when they calmed down to us coming home, they went to the room where Katie stayed while she was house sitting and laid on the bed waiting for her to come back! We will definitely use her again in the future if our schedules line up!

We could not have been happier with the care that Maggie gave our fur babies! We had to go out of town for the weekend and wanted someone to stay at our home to watch our two cats and two dogs. We were a little nervous, as we have some higher-maintenance pups. She sent pictures, kept us updated throughout the weekend, and went above and beyond to keep our pets healthy and happy when we weren’t able to ourselves! Overall, we felt so good leaving our babies and home in her care, and we absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking!

Roxanne went above and beyond watching my (super clingy) cat. That and the frequent updates/photos gave me peace of mind while I was away. I got home and could tell he’d gotten lots of love. :)

Adrianna was wonderful and we will definitely use her again. This was the first time we have used a pet sitter and I wasn't sure what to expect. She came over to meet our fur baby beforehand and we walked through everything thing. I felt comfortable that we were making a good decision after seeing our dog cuddle right up to her, and the way she listened and asked lots of questions. She responds quickly to messages and we especially appreciated the pictures and updates she sent us during her stay. The house and everything was in order when we returned and we could see that oir dog had been well taken care of.

About: I work at the Independence animal Shelter and volunteer at a senior dog facility because I can’t get enough of the old geezers! I foster senior dogs that come in through the shelter because I believe all dogs deserve to know love, care, and comfort up until there last days so I’m very comfortable handling older dogs! I enjoy my job and love my lifestyle, so I hope I can help incorporate that into your life! I work 4 days a week so it gives me 3 days where I’m free to help out, and I am open to odd hour requests! I don’t mind if I have to work after my work as long as you get the help that you need. I request that either specific care instructions are written or kept in text where it can be easily accessible just because I’m human! I forget sometimes! But I like to be thorough and give myself a checklist so anything that helps me feel organized will help me care for your animals the way they deserve. :)

About: I have lived my whole life with pets from cats and dogs to birds and reptiles. My services revolve around your pets safety and happiness. I have an active lifestyle consisting mainly of trail hikes with my dog. I work from home full time as a digital marketer, so I have plenty of time to care for my pets and offer services to care for yours. I mainly started using Rover because I have a love and passion for animals. I am grateful to be given the opportunity to work with Rover and help provide care to any and all pets in my free time. I live in a quiet neighborhood with a park and school in walking distance. I often start my day by caring for my fur babies and providing the mental and physical enrichment they need. I have taken care of newborn puppies and kittens and senior animals as well.
