Jessica was an amazing house sitter. The boys got spoiled with her and she was so loving to them. Hey miss her already. She was very prompt with communication. We plan on using her again in the future. Thank you Jessica!!

Lauren did an excellent job of taking care of our dogs while we were away. She sent updates and photos daily, and was responsive to any questions I had. Our dogs looked happy and loved in every photo. I would book with her again!

Lori took very good care of our 2 very different dogs. One has anxiety issues and one is so little and hates being alone. We had to be away for 8 days, and since this was our 1st time using this service we were a bit nervous...but it all turned out fantastic and I feel so much better about leaving my girls. I will be using Lori again and highly recommend her to care for your 4 legged fur babies.

Highly recommend!! Andrea has stayed are our house two times for long weekends and watched our 14 year old Pitbull who can't go to dog parks or really be around other dogs. She gave him his medication which is about 8 pills and tried different things to get him to eat. She stayed in constant contact with me and left our house spotless. We already scheduled her for another weekend in August.

Cory was awesome. I will definitely book with him again. He was on time and kept in contact with me throughout the house sitting process. I had a bad experience with Rover before and he has certainly renewed my faith about the program. Thanks again Cory!!

Selena was great to work with. She took the dogs out to play in the yard with her even during a snow storm. We got pictures and videos at least once a day. We will definitely have her back for our next vacation.

We're over the moon with Tarah's stellar care for our two bulldogs while we were away. She handled everything like a pro, from giving them their daily Benadryl to dealing with their sassy attitudes with patience and grace. Coming back to a house that was better than we left it and two happy pups was the best feeling ever. Tarah's genuine love for animals shines through in everything she does, making her our top choice for pet sitting. If you're looking for someone reliable and caring, Tarah's your person. Huge thanks to Tarah for making our time away stress-free and our dogs' tails wag like crazy!

We hired Jessica for the first time to pet/house sit our 11 year old golden retriever. She was excellent! She came over prior to meet us and our dog. She communicates well, giving us updates 2-3 times/day; she sent lots of adorable pictures as well! She washed her sheets/towels (without being instructed to) and left the house neat and tidy. Our dog seemed happy when we returned. We would definitely recommend her and will hire her in the future.

Torina was excellent at caring for my 2 dogs over the weekend. Our dogs have different activity levels and needs, and she was great with both of them. She sent lots of pictures while we were away and left the house clean. I've already booked her again for another stay:)
