Noah, was great with our little Cookie for an overnight. Gave her the space she needed to warm up to him and sent a picture to us to assure us that she was happy and safe. Will book Noah again and highly recommend him for your pet too!

Nancy went above and beyond caring for our boy and home while we were away! Additionally, we appreciated her responsive communication and the extra time she took for two meet and greets. We highly recommend her services.

Alexis did a wonderful job with our dog and we would highly recommend her. Our elderly dog suffers from anxiety and was immediately calm when he meet Alexis and we could tell when we got home that she gave him lots of love and attention.

Allison did a great job house sitting and taking care of Dax at the last minute! She sent lots of updates and photos. The house was very clean too! My only issue was the $20 meet n greet fee which I thought would be deducted from the booking once confirmed. Even though her bio says, “to be modified in the final price once a booking is confirmed” I still thought it meant she would take it off the price upon booking, but she adds it no matter whether you book or not. I’ve used Rover for almost 2 years and never had to pay someone to meet. I also pay fees when booking Rover too…. So it’s part of the program. I, too, lose out on my time if someone meets Dax and decides he’s too big or not a good fit for them. I don’t get paid for my time going to job interviews or when I’ve interviewed babysitters…. So just something to consider.

Sarah is always so good with my critters!! Both my cat and dog enjoy her visits a lot. My dog sits and looks out the window for her when I say she's going to be their sitter for the night ? she's really genuinely nice and the animals enjoy her company.

Jessica took great care of Lexi. She also went above what u expected of her by vacuuming dog hair up and washing bedding and putting clean sheets on my bed. Upon returning home after a long day in airports and not arriving until midnight; it was great not needing to change sheets. I will definitely call on Jessuca again when I need a pup sitter. She was great.

Karen was fantastic with our 2 dogs that have very different personalities. She was sure to give lots of attention to both of them, and even spent time with our cat who she was not caring for during her stay. She took the time to bathe and groom our dogs, which was not at all a requirement. Her love of animals truly shows, and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, attentive pet sitter!

Caitlin is such a rockstar! She kept me in the loop and sent me updates on how the pups were doing! She is responsive and made me feel like my dogs were in the best hands. They looked like they were having a blast the whole time and the dogs loved her. I highly recommend having her watch and play with your pups!

Natasha did a great job! It was our first time having someone else watch our dog and cats for more than a day and we would use her again. Our dog is fearful of almost anyone outside our home and not always cooperative when he needs to go outside. She did a great job helping him to get outside when he needed and was very patient with his quirks.

About: I’ve taken care of dogs for most of my life. Neighbors, friends, and family have relied on me to walk, bathe, give meds, and fed their pets. I worked at a vet clinic in high school and gained many skills working with different animals but mainly dogs. I’m currently working full time Monday-Friday. I’m free anytime after 5pm in the evenings and on weekends. I’m comfortable doing overnight stays. Your pet and I will spend lots of time outside on walks, in backyards, or playing with their favorite toy. I will treat your pet like it’s my own. If you have specific requirements about crates, leashes, harnesses, or anything else, I’m happy to do them. I want to make your pet comfortable and happy.

I have known Sue for 30+ years and have always relied on her to care for my cats when I leave town. My cats have varied in ages and dietary needs and she has always provided exemplary care during my absence. She spends time petting them and playing with them and sends me pics to show they are thriving. Sue is very patient, kind and caring and has never harmed an animal. She is respectful of their boundaries and is trustworthy in my home. I highly recommend Sue without reservation.
