Jessica was amazing and took great care if our Sumo while we were on vacation. She was a great communicator and sent us updates everyday. It really made our vacation better because we knew Sumo was being well taken care of back home. I will for sure use her service again in the future!

Justin quickly made my dog feel at home. He kept me informed of her stay, sent pics, and I was elated to see her getting a walk and knowing overnight she fit right in and was having fun : )

Casandra was amazing. I was a first time customer and a bit uncertain how Rover worked. Casandra took the time to meet my dog and me in advance of my reservation to both answer my questions and allow my dog to acclimate to her overnight accommodations. Casandra took pictures of my dog playing and sent them to me daily - it totally put my mind at ease! I will definitely use Casandra again! Again, she was fantastic. Highly recommend her and her services!

I’m extremely pleased with the care provided by Megan when she took care of my 2 dogs for 6 days/5 nights while I was out of state on vacation. I had never left them that long with anyone before, and one of mine (Callie) is very attached to me and has some separation anxiety. But my fears were put to rest by Megan’s kind and reassuring manner when we first met and even more so when she sent me updates and several pictures every day to let me know how my pups were doing. She let me know my 2 pups were getting along well with her 2 little dogs, and the pictures reinforced they were making themselves at home. I really appreciated that she has a large fenced in yard for the dogs since mine are used to that. I will definitely use Megan again and am so relieved to know I can leave my dogs with her and they will be well cared for. She is awesome! I highly recommend her.

I could tell my dog was so happy during her stay and she returned to us so tired from playing all day. Ashley is great at communicating, treated my dog as her own, and her dogs are so friendly!

Jen and her family were so welcoming, caring, and loving to my Buddy. They went above and beyond to meet his quirks about hard floors and let him eat on the rug. He’s adjusting to being home well which tells me he felt comfortable and cared for during his stay.

About: I have always had multiple dogs in my family. I am an animal lover! I now have a dog of my own, an almost 2-year-old Goldendoodle named Waffles. He loves all people and animals! I work on Monday-Thursday, so my Fridays are open as well as most weekends. I am very flexible during the week if needed as well. I work close to home on Monday-Thursday and come home on my lunch break to let my dog out. My apartment has a dog park with an enclosed fence. We take Waffles there daily. It is very safe and there is usually only one animal at a time. We live in a safe, family-friendly area.

About: My husband and I have had dogs all our lives, but we are now empty nesters/retired and wanting to travel. We miss the companionship of having pets and are ready to give special care to yours! Retired & available day and night while caring for your pets. Able to go on walks anytime. Able to provide extra love & care. Last minute scheduling is usually ok. Just let us know the needs and wants of your fur baby! Fenced yard. No other pets (or kids) in home. Potty breaks any time of day. Great neighborhood with walking trails. We offer reliable and responsible care in our home with lots of time and love to give.

Kyra was fantastic with Sage. She sent photos to keep us updated on how she was adjusting. Sage ate well which has been a problem for her at times while she is away. We hope to use Kyra again for our snuggle bug.

We had such a positive experience using Amethyst. My dog was boarded for a long trip and he started to get over stimulated in the middle of it. She 100% took the time to read the signs he was giving her to help him. I’ve never had a boarder take the time to listen to what my dog was telling them and respond to his needs so quickly and in such a caring way. He came home the happiest boy which has never happened before when I’ve used boarding places. I recommend using her because she will take such good care of your pet!

Patty was great to work with and always prompt with responses. I appreciate the updates and pictures. I let her know I have a nervous dog and she was open to a meet and greet and asked what would help my dog to be comfortable while he was with her. Will use her again. Thanks Patty!!

Amazing experience. Our dog gets homesick but Alexandra was there to help him adjust while we were out of town. He LOVED the big backyard and his new dog friend. Thank you for taking such care of our dog and giving us updates along the way - you went above and beyond.

Butter loved her stay at Ashly’s! Ashly is a professional and we felt instantly comfortable when dropping Butter off. Ashly did a great job following all of our care instructions. Butter had a great time playing with Ashly’s dog and definitely needed a bath from all the fun after we picked her up! Would definitely use Ashly’s services again. Thank you so much!

I wish I could leave more than 5 stars. Liz is amazing with Rudy. She kept me updated about how he was doing with lots of photos and videos. I never once had to worry about my Rudy while I was busy with wedding stuff. She is my go to person to take care of Rudy when I’m in Des Moines.
