Ambika took great care of Stella! She sent lots of updates and cute pictures throughout the stay. Communication was great and it’s clear that she went above and beyond in caring for my fur baby. I wholeheartedly recommend Ambika :)

Our dog mochi has a great time during his stay with Kathryn. She sent tons of cute photos and took our dog to the park everyday and was able to get his energy out. He came home fully tired and content. Would highly recommend.

My Rover experience with Samantha and Roberto was beyond 5 stars! I was very anxious to leave my 14 year old dog Izzy for our 2 week vacation. She gets anxious when we leave her and she’s on a lot of meds. Even though I live in NJ, I was drawn to Samantha and Roberto (who live in South Phila) on the Rover app. I called for our initial meet and greet and within minutes I knew they were the people I wanted to take care of Izzy. Samantha got right back to me every time I contacted her promptly. About a week before we went away, I contacted Samantha about all my concerns about leaving Izzy while we were away. Samantha assured me she was very used to dealing with older dogs and there was no issue she couldn’t handle with Izzy. She made me feel 100% reassured about leaving Izzy. After that conversation, I never worried about Izzy again. Samantha and Roberto sent us texts and pictures several times everyday. They tended to Izzy’s every need with ease. If I’m being honest, I think they gave Izzy more attention than she gets at home ?. They are wonderful, trustworthy people and I would highly recommend them to anyone I know! We were able to have a stress free vacation thanks to Samantha and Roberto! Side Note for NJ Residents - It was very easy to get to Samantha and Roberto’s house off the WW Bridge. They are minutes away off the Broad Street exit.

Our pups were so happy at Nicole’s and we will definitely be booking with her the next time we travel!! She sent frequent updates and pictures and we could tell that our dogs were happy and well cared for. They had a blast playing with Nicole’s puppy and we’re truly comfortable even though it’s sometimes stressful for them to be away from home. We so appreciated being able to relax on our trip knowing our dogs were safe and happy!

Georgette was absolutely fantastic with Pax; he is a huge puppy, highly intelligent and very sensitive. Setting things up with Georgette was smooth since she was highly responsive, sent many pictures and videos and I never once wondered whether my pup was ok because I know he was having a great time. Georgette's two dogs were also a great accompaniment to Pax, and I would highly recommend booking with her.

First time using this app and Marquis was a good choice! Took my dog to the dog park and kept me updated with pictures. I haven’t taken my dog in years to the dog park so I was so happy to hear that he took him and that he did well. ?

Once again, Adora and Danny were absolutely amazing! You will not find more caring sitters. This was Sancho’s second time with them and based on the pictures I received, he was extremely comfortable them. This says ALOT because Sancho can be quite anxious. It’s so incredible to not have to worry about how my fur son is being cared for. Adora and Danny are TOP TIER ❤️

Sara is incredible! Sara cared for our dog this weekend and I was blown away at the level of care and attention she showed. My mind was completely at ease the whole weekend because it is obvious how much Sara loves dogs and how good she is at interacting with them. I will definitely be working with Sara in the future and I honestly cannot recommend her enough!!

Omg! Gokhan and Su were the absolute best care-takers for my angel (cat) for over a week. Great communication and most importantly they clearly love cats and took special care of my boy while I was on an extended trip due to a family emergency. I am SO grateful to them for their care. Thank you !!!
