Shakti was a blessing! Shakti accepted my last minute request for care after my other sitter canceled. They had excellent communication throughout the process and while sitting. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to relax on my camping trip knowing Kai was in good hands!

Gwen is an amazing cat sitter! She is thoughtful, prompt, and communicates regularly to let us know how our fur child is doing. We trust her completely and will definitely be reaching out to her again the next time we are out of town. Highly recommend!

Lorie has taken care of my kitties several times now and she is great. She is very responsive and sends photos and keeps me updated on how they’re doing. We’ve been dealing with chronic GI problems and she handles it very well and keeps me posted on their health. Would definitely recommend!!

About: I took care of my dog, Macie (in profile picture), since I was 11 years old. We were both "pups" when we rescued her and truly grew up together. Macie was a medium sized boxer-beagle mix that was a ball of energy. Made for fun times and sometimes a steep learning curve. She was a quick learner though and it made me a better teacher. I have also been a dog-sitter for neighborhood dogs, including two larger juvenile brothers. And finally, I developed a special-bond with my sister's dog, Rory. Rory unfortunately had a very rough start to life, which left her completely terrified of the world around her. She needed a gentle touch (figuratively, because she wouldn't literally let anyone touch her). Slowly but surely she wouldn't run away when you came nearby and she started to open up to the idea of giving this world a second chance. She is now a happy teenager! All of that is to say, I understand that all dogs with their own care needs and personalities and I love the process of figuring out how to make each individual's day better. I am currently independently studying to become a web developer. Which means I make my own schedule during the week. Anytime between 6am to 3pm Monday-Friday works for me. I can be flexible with most weekends if given a couple of days notice I am happy to visit your home and walk around the surrounding areas. If given permission, we can expand that range to car-rides and local trails as well. I am extremely attentive and my top priority is keeping your dog safe. With that being the case, the only thing I will feed your dog is food you provide or treats you approve. (Unfortunately I can't bring dogs to my home or I would risk losing a security deposit)

Michaella is a true lover of animals. She appreciates just how special fur babies are and treats them as such. She understands their need for exercise and mental stimulation, providing activities to engage and challenge them. She is very observant, noticing any change in their behavior, making note and sharing with the parent. Michaella is reliable and responsible and I have yet to meet any of her employers that would disagree.

I highly recommend Summer! She checked in our dog several times when my husband and I were out of town for a few days. I appreciated her updates, communication and photos. She took the time to play with our dog and give her lots of cuddles, building trust and comfort - it put me at ease knowing our dog was in such good hands! We’ll definitely be reaching out to Summer for dog sitting needs in the future!

Kyle did a lunch time visit, feeding and walk with our 14 year yound chihuaha -terrier on a day where we were away and our dear was going to be missing lunch and a walk. Kyle was entirely responsive to our messages, booking and visiting us to be introduced . Everything went perfectly with Kyle giving us a real time update after he had completed his visit. Highly recommended and very grateful for his help.

Julia was amazing watching my bois, Slinky & Rex for a week! She visited twice a day and left detailed Rover cards and cute photos for each visit. Julia was very responsive to texts, and was able to schedule a meet and greet prior to booking, which I really appreciated! Both kitties were very happy when I returned. I will definitely be working with Julia again in the future!

About: Hello :) I have been taking care of pets for most of my life. I started with fostering kittens as a child, and now have over 3 years of working as a vet assistant at vet offices. I have the energy for the most rambunctious of animals, and the patience of those that may need extra care. If your pet has any medical concerns, I am trained to give medications, administer fluids, and observe any changes to their health. With me as a sitter, you know that their health and happiness is being cared for ❤️ I have classes in the daytime on weekdays, but I have a car, allowing me to come back for walks, feeding, playtime, and more. I am mostly flexible, but mornings and nights are the easiest for me to do. I can care for your pets at your home, whether you want me to stay overnight, or just visit throughout the day, I am flexible to YOUR wants and needs.

Claire took 3 months care of Mo and Miko and she is super reliable and I totally trust her to again take care of my cats when I leave for a trip. I have been relying on ROVER for quite a while and I could barely find someone to be available for so long. Lucky me that Claire made the difference. Thank you again Claire.
