“Mya was great! She was communicative and so nice! She did an amazing job with my pup and I felt confident leaving him in her care. She sent pictures and updates, and I comfortable that she was providing my pup the best care. Highly recommend!!”
“Destiny was a lifesaver for me and Ted. My dog was diagnosed with pneumonia a week before a 5 day trip I had planned meaning he couldn’t be boarded and was contagious to be around other dogs. Destiny came in last minute and saved the day. She handled having to give Ted 5 medications multiple times a day and she did an amazing job. When I came home after a long 5 days, I was expecting an anxious dog who would smother me with needing attention - instead I was met with a well-loved and cared for dog that seemed disappointed I came through the door and not Destiny. I highly recommend Destiny to anybody needing loving care for their pet.”
“Delaney was very professional and sweet. She took very good care our our 2 small dogs and 1 cat. She arrived on time and even sent us a picture with our dogs on her lap! We love our pets and she did a great job. I would hire her again!! Thank you SO much!!”
“Shaneel is really great! She was so kind and patient with rescue pitbull who gets very anxious when left alone. She gave hourly updates, kept him entertained, and has been our regular because our pit loves her. Highly recommended!!”

“Aya did a wonderful job taking care our dog and cat! She is kind, trustworthy and our pets love her! I highly recommend Aya for pet sitting. ?”
“Wonderful sitter. Took the job last minute after another sitter fell through. Picked my dog up AND dropped her off. Mabel was spoiled and had time with two other dogs. She was realistic about the challenges of my dog and willing to accommodate her. Nice fenced in yard and pictures provided!”
“Rachel is amazing, she worked with our anxious dog and sent a perfect amount of updates. Our dog had tummy troubles and she was fantastic and flexible with needing to change his schedule, diet, and the amount he was being let out. 15/10 would recommend”
“I’ve never met someone that is more interested in the health and well-being of all animals, big and small. Hanna grew up with two large dogs whom she loves. She regularly attends the reptile expo in Kalamazoo to learn more about various snakes, spiders, and other insects. She even goes out of her way to understand which species may be invasive in the wild to better support her local ecosystem. I’ve seen her gain the trust of her professors to house sit and care for a range of different animals, all of which she has done a fantastic job. She understands that pets don’t just need food and water, but attention, love, and play as well. If there is a pet that needs to be looked after and you don’t want to worry, there is no one better for the role than Hanna.”
About: I have over 18 years of animal care experience being raised on my families ranch, we had horses, dogs, cats, chickens and more! I've helped raise/train several dogs over the years and had to be responsible for several litters of puppies and kittens. I've had to take care of elderly dogs and cats my entire life, I know how to best make pets comfortable and keep them happy while you're away. I love animals and I'd love to take care of your pet! No animal is too big, I've raised temperamental horses and Pitbull's that started out trying to eat me. I'm a student at Western Michigan University for Aviation Management and operations, I take classes during the day that are sometimes online and sometimes in person. I'm easily able to fit your pet visit into my schedule and I'm available almost every day! Depending what the owner tells me about their pet, I'd always start slow by giving the animal some food or a treat to gain a little bit of trust. If the pet likes attention and wants to play I'm more than happy to accommodate and wear them out with my brought or provided toys! I'm all about keeping your pet happy and content, whether they want to climb all over me or like their personal space, I'm well versed in all forms of taking care of animals!
“This was our first time using Rover and I’m super happy we found Lauren! She did an excellent job with our two pups :) she even left two Polaroid pictures of them for us when we returned home ! She also sent frequent updates and pictures :)”
“Jaynie was a fantastic sitter! I was very concerned about leaving Sergeant Pepper at home alone, because he had recently been attacked and he had movement restrictions while he was healing. She was very relaxed, and kept him at ease the whole time I was gone. I will definitely book again!”
“Thank you, Kierra! We received updates with pictures (we sure missed our puppy). The puppy was happy and well-cared for. The house was as we left it. Knowing there is someone like Kierra to trust with our house and puppy means we can opt to take a vacation maybe from time to time.”
“Kaitlyn has been watching my pets, including my dogs and cat, for years now. She has always done a wonderful job. I can’t express how much I recommend Kaitlyn as a pet caregiver.”
“We had a great vacation and Rosemarie reached out with photo's and video's each day. The pups were well cared for and so was our home. You wouldn't even know anyone had been here. Came home to awesome report cards, clean house, mail on the counter. Thank you, thank you.”
“Joe was great! We needed someone last minute and he stepped up big! He took care of our hank the whole weekend. Would recommend him to everyone!!”
