Kim is so great and easy to work with when it comes to arranging walks and visits. I work out of country a lot and it’s such a relief to have someone I can trust with my home and my best friends. I believe my dogs couldn’t be in better hands. Thanks Kim!

I'm a Rover sitter myself so I understand the importance of who watches over my babies. My pups love Kylee and she's great with them, they're always so excited to go on their walk. She's prompt and messages me updates while she's with my dogs!

Abby was my favorite pet sitter. My Sangria pup adored her! She was responsible and always left my home in great condition. I trusted her to give my baby medications and she reported her dietary intake and walks. If she hadn't moved away I'd still use her!

Lady has always liked animals and has been close to mainly dogs since little. She used to take care of stray dogs and during University volunteered in a Rescue group to help getting homes to stray dogs. Lady would be a great sitter because she got experience through this, knowing how to deal from sweet dogs to others with more complicated behaviour.

About: I wholeheartedly believe that dogs make our lives better, not only emotionally but physically! They can cheer you up when you’re feeling down and sometimes they end up taking you on a walk instead of the other way around! Give a dog the kind of attention and love they give you and they will be happy and healthy also! My dog has made me feel better and I believe that dogs have emotional needs too! I love to work out and dogs deserve to get exercise too! I’ve had dogs my whole life and have seen the benefits from simply getting daily exercise and social interaction! hi my name is samantha and i am a sophomore at southeastern university! i absolutely love all dogs and will smile at the just the sight of one:) i truly believe that dogs make humans lives better! dogs bring so much joy and love into a home and i’ve experienced that in my own life growing up with dogs! they know when your sad and need cheering up, and i’ve come to realize that they need us just as much as we need them! your dog needs love and attention, and that’s where i come in! simply taking your dog on a walk or visiting during the day to provide physical activity is what i can offer! i want to provide your pet with the care it needs to live a happy and healthy life! i’m just a college girl who loves dogs but can’t afford one of my own yet. i would love to be your dog walker or pet sitter and i have plenty of free time to do so! i am available in the afternoons during the week and all day saturday! I am very patient and give great care to dogs who are more scared and sensitive to new environments and people. I want to make each pet feel comfortable with me and with their environment. During walks, keeping the pet at my side at all times is imperative. I follow instructions given to me by owners and ensure their pet is my utmost priority.

I'm very cautious of leaving my dog in someone else's care due to age and on going medical conditions. Mickey made me feel comfortable leaving my best friend in her care. She was very diligent in administering his daily meditation and special food on schedule. I would recommend her as a responsible person to care for your home and pet.

There are few people I trust to look after my Daisy, but Rey is someone I absolutely can depend on! My lab/pit mix rescue loves people but is not keen on any other animals, so walking her can be a trial. Rey handles her excellently! He gives her attention and love, but also knows how to radiate calm when she gets worked up. It’s really refreshing to have someone take care of her when I’m out and know everything is okay. 10/10 recommend!

About: I grew up observing and helping my grandparents breed Great Danes since I can remember. The way the cared for their dogs is what I carry with me now - love, empathy, and making them feel like family. I would help them walk, feed, bathe, and care for them from puppies that are weeks old to dogs that are in their elder years. This then led to me taking care of neighbors and family friends pets (dogs and cats). I have been reliant to help take care of their pets from overnight to a month long. This included taking them out for walks, playing for extended periods of time, feeding, bathing, changing litter, etc. I am currently a full time student in nursing school. I am happy to discuss schedules on a case-by-case basis to fit your pets needs, as I am flexible to work with. I understand that each pet is unique and has their own personality. I never want to overwhelm a pet or make them uncomfortable, which is why I use a slow approach to see how the pet responds. I extend my palm for them to smell and react, so I can gain their trust. I care for pets in a mindset the same as babysitting a child - understanding that the responsibility is placed in my hands, ensuring they are safe and well taken care of.

Kari is an exceptional person who devotes herself to helping the less fortunate and showing kindness to those in need, be it humans or animals. She is a great person and an even more awesome dog person. In addition to her passion for animals, she has also proven to be responsible and reliable. I’ve never been left hanging when I needed her assistance. If that isn’t enough, she’s funny too! Overall, great personality and you can always leave your fur family in her hands knowing that not only are their basic needs being met, but also their other needs for love, play, patience, etc. 5 out of 5, would recommend.

Lexi is a magnificent person to care for your pets. She gives bottomless love to any animal she encounters. She even told me she gave up eating pork because the pigs looked too much like one of her dogs. 🥹 She gives lots of cuddles, playtime, and undivided attention to pets. She takes the role seriously and is diligent about maintaining a pet's schedule, food, medication, etc. Plus, Lexi is responsible, capable, and smart--and her career as a nurse proves it. She works well with all kinds of people and is responsive and friendly. I have trusted her to be in my house taking care of plants and animals overnight for years and would recommend her to anyone.
