Dean was great walking our two dogs- they immediately took a liking to him. He was able to accommodate us at short notice and was reliable and friendly.

Shanley was wonderful with our 8 month old bernadoodle! This was our first experience with Rover with our first dog ever. She had great communication throughout the experience, was super responsive and reliable, and even shared pictures and updates from her walks. We're lucky to have Shanley nearby to help us care for our puppy when work or trips come up. Thank you!

Jonathan was great with my new pup- who has a hard time warming up to people but immediately went off with Jonathan on his walk! He came back home happy and tired- exactly how I wanted him to be :)

Christine came to the rescue on short notice to walk our foster dog while we were on vacation. She was patient, understanding and offered great care. Love the rover.com app and the report card feature! Christine clearly followed the protocol, gave informative daily feedback and put our concerns about leaving new foster pet at ease. Thanks Christine!

I hired Natalie to walk my dog while I had all day commitment. She was amazing with my dog who can be shy with strangers. She followed directions perfectly and even came back after discovering an issue with the punch code on the front door. I’d highly recommend her. She’s clearly a committed person and animal lover.

Ann Marie cared for our senior cat, Kitty Perry, for quite some time before we moved out of Philly. Ann Marie was always prompt, and spent extra time with our special man while we were out of town. Ann Marie was always incredible at providing us with updates, and actually waived a red flag that our cat might be losing his hearing (a vet visit soon after confirmed he was going deaf!) Kitty Perry crossed the rainbow bridge in September, but he lived a wonderful 17 years and was well taken care of by Ann Marie whenever we left town. Your fur baby will be in great care with Ann Marie!

Jay is great with my little guy and he just loves the special attention he receives. Jay has been walking Chipper for a few months and he looks forward to his daily walks! Knowing that he is well cared for and spoiled while I am at work is such a relief.

Lilly did a great job walking my jumpy, nervous, skidding dog. It took a while to warm up to her, but by the end, she was eating treats off her hand. So proud of my dog! And Lilly too for being so patient. Looking forward to using Lilly again!

Cindy was great from start to finish and I have recommended her to our neighbors. She was very communicative, sending a photo from every walk and coming over before our trip. She was also very responsible about fixing little problems for us. The usual walk we planned took less than 30 minutes and she used the remaining time to do small chores. We would definitely hire her again.
