“Jason is definitely a dog person. Our pup loved his company and his dogs’ too! She returned home happy. Will rebook again for sure. Thanks, Jason!”
“Melody was an absolute blessing and we could not have happier! She took us as a last minute booking, as our normal sitter was unable to take our dog. Sadie has never stayed with someone she didn’t know before and Melody made her and us feel very comfortable. She kept us updated with pictures and texts. We could not have asked for anything more! Thank you again Melody for taking care of our anxious girl and treating her like your own!”
“Kelly was amazing with my nervous dog. She went above and beyond taking care of him. My dog got plenty of exercise, since Kelly walked him multiple times a day. She even came up with creative ways to encourage him to drink when he wasn’t drinking enough. My dog also had two amazing playmates with Kelly’s adorable kids. Kelly’s house is spotlessly clean, and very dog safe, with fenced backyard, and plenty of space to roam around. Communications were excellent, with me getting multiple pictures and updates on my dog throughout the day. My dog always looked happy and relaxed. I am extremely lucky that I have found Kelly, and very grateful to her! I would absolutely use her again, and highly, HIGHLY recommend her!”
“Carla was absolutely wonderful with my pups. I have one that is very calm and one that is full Golden and then some - she kept them so busy and entertained and I was able to see all of it with the many pictures and videos she sent. I will definitely use her again!!!!”
David & Bryan S.
“David and Bryan and are the absolute best! I can’t say enough about the care our furbaby received. To list a few things that set them apart were; 1. They only take a couple of small dogs at a time. 2. Their home is very clean and well kept. Very sanitary! 3. My dog was allowed the same privileges like sitting and sleeping on the couch and bed as well as sunbathing on the deck. 4. Detailed updates every morning about his prior day. 5. They used great judgement when my dog wasn’t eating his food. Overall, our dog came home very relaxed after 6 days which says a lot. He usually needs a day or two to sleep off his stress. Let’s just say, if you treat your dog like one of your own children, you definitely want their services. Bottom line, they are just great people that you and your dog will feel at ease the moment you meet them.”
Liz & Kristopher G.
“Cannot express our thanks enough to both Liz and Kris for watching our little girl. They provided amazing updates, photos (many of which were hilariously edited and amazing), videos, and even a report card detailing her stay when we picked her up. So thankful to have found them and we will most certainly be booking again!”
Anays & Francis V.
“We are THRILLED to have found Anays and Francis on Rover! We could not have asked for a better experience. This was our first time ever boarding our deaf English Bull Terrier, Eddie, and we were nervous but the many check-ins and photos put our hearts at ease throughout our trip. They listened to our feeding/walking instructions and carried everything out perfectly to keep Eddie on his routine as much as possible. They were patient with his and SO attentive (he can be very clingy) and by the time we came back I swear he would have rather stayed with them haha. He got lots of cuddles and care, and we definitely plan on boarding him here again in the future, and we 100% recommend them without reservation. Thank you!”
“Stella and the family took care of our Finn better than we do... Love their attention to Finny. While he was there ....He loved the kids, loved this new dog loving home, and maybe loved 1 to many socks... Tremendous care and love to our puppy Finnegan.”
“I had a such a great experience! I needed a last minute sitter for my dog and she was so accommodating. She sent me updates throughout the day with pictures. Definitely recommend and will be using again!”
John & Louis F.
“Best care my fur baby has ever received and she’s been to some pretty good pet hotels. They took her for long walks frequently and sent plenty of pictures and updates. They’re now apart of our extended family and will be our go to for all future sitting needs for our fur baby.”
“Everything about our experience was great!!! Super responsive. This was the first time our Golden retriever has been away from home for an extended period of time. I would definitely recommend Christine and use her in the future.”
“Allison is awesome! My dog Bruce loves her and she sends great updates with fun pictures. She is great with him and he gets excited when we go to see her.”
“Joy was great & accommodating to our 6 month old toy goldendoodle! She was super friendly and treated Theodore as if he was her own. Also to mention she sent us plenty updates throughout his stay and made the process easy! 10/10 recommend & will rebook!”
About: My name is Anna, I’m a mom of two and lifelong animal lover. Currently have a 75 lb Staffordshire Terrier. Have experience caring for dogs of all age, size, breed. All animals have very different personalities and needs. Experience with elderly, special needs, and medication administration. I understand how crazy busy life can get and sometimes you need a little help at home, that’s where I come in! At work and thinking of your pup? I’ll check in and let you know how thier day is going, including a picture/video of how happy they are! Going on vacation? I’ll make sure your dog gets the attention they crave. Love and care is what I can provide, just let me know how I can help! Feel free to ask me questions and fill me in on how your family is in need of assistance! Please keep in mind my two daughters age 4yrs and 9mos are always with me, so your animals MUST be okay with children. The 4yr old has been taught to respect animals and listens well, and the 9mos old is on my hip 99% of the time so she’s up out of the way. My schedule is mostly open. Sundays are reserved for family so i will not be available for boarding or house sitting that day of the week. I respect privacy and preference. I understand how particular animals can be and will always follow the owners lead on what to do/not to do.
“Jill was an excellent sitter for our dogs. From the first meet-and-greet I felt secure in her care and abilities. Communication was excellent, even overseas. Our dogs were happy and healthy in her care!”
“Amazing care for my dog! Jessica watched him over the 4th of July and she was able to comfort him during all the fireworks. She sent me pictures and even a little video. I'm very glad I was able to find someone in such short notice and I'm very grateful for all the extra care she gave my pup. I'll definitely keep her in mind for next time.”
“Dahzia is very nice. She took very good care or our mixed breed dog, Penny. We would definitely book with Dahzia again when we have plans for travel when Penny cannot accompany us. Thanks Dahzia”
“Indre is great! Our pup was well taken care of and was well taken care of.”
Kathleen & John N.
“Maisy liked being with Kathleen and John - She came home happy and bouncing and her very own self. Kathleen and John are a wonderful couple who loved and cared for our Maisy for the time that we were gone. They gave us the peace of mind not to have to worry about our little one.”
“Amanda was fantastic!! I was crazy busy and surely making her life miserable with my horrible logistics/planning but she handled it so well and without any complaints. She was super flexible and my pup seemed plenty happy after her day with him. Will hopefully book with her again!”
