Between 2 dogs and taking care of my dad, vacation seemed impossible. Until I found Josh on Rover. He came over twice to meet the pups before we left. He gave updates, sent pictures, videos and took the best care of them. Great communication, trusting, always on time and very professional. I can’t say enough. Thank you Josh. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

From day one Christian was professional and willing to work with our not so friendly boy. We got hourly updates with pictures on our animals. One of our animals got sick while we were away and Christian was great with extra cuddles and provided what was needed. We had no worries or hesitations about our kitties and dogs while we were away.

Kenny took care of our three dogs and one cat for a week while we were on vacation and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. His attention to each pet's needs, the way he engaged with each of them, his patience with our 17 year old spicy chihuahua (with special needs) was more than I could have hoped for. Kenny was always communicative, sent lots of pictures, asked all the questions you hope your sitter will ask, and took amazing care of our pets and our home. Having him care for our crew made our vacation so much more enjoyable because I knew I didn't need to worry about how things were going at home. Honestly - if I could give Kenny more than 5 stars, I would - he's the best!

Luciano was great at every step: communicative, clearly knowledgeable about dogs and super caring. Notably the pups seemed better behaved with him than us! We hope to work with him again. Thanks Luciano!

I'm very cautious of leaving my dog in someone else's care due to age and on going medical conditions. Mickey made me feel comfortable leaving my best friend in her care. She was very diligent in administering his daily meditation and special food on schedule. I would recommend her as a responsible person to care for your home and pet.

Maritza was wonderful with my Great Dane named Mac. Due to my busy schedule, there’s times I needed someone to feed him and get his energy out during the day and Maritza was always happy to do it! Mac loves her and she has become a part of his daily routine a few times a week. There is no one I would trust more to handle him and care for him when I’m unable. Thank you Maritza!

Danielle is a Godsend. She is so sweet with my girl dakota. Has always gone over and beyond to help me out in last minute situations and lives Dakota like her own. She even was helpful when my dog went into heat while I was away on my trip and washed her party panties ( diaper) for me. Can’t recommend her enough!

About: I’ve always loved dogs! I currently own a golden retriever puppy, but have experience with many other dog breeds. I enjoy playing with dogs and caring for them like my own! A little about me; I am a nurse intern who cares for orthopedic patients. I am a caring person towards people and animals! I’m currently a student, so I tend to be home a bit and have some time. Your pup will always be supervised while with me! I have a fenced yard, and a friendly golden retriever puppy who LOVES to play. He loves all dogs and people. I can provide a crate, if your pup needs, in order to create a safe and quiet place.

About: I’ve always been the go-to for taking care of my friends and family’s pets, I’ve helped many neighbors, friends and family! I started around 11 years old dog and cat sitting for a neighbor, and have since taken care of many dogs and cats when friends have gone on vacation, or been in the hospital. I was even the first person a friend called when needing help rescuing a kitten. I have owned both dogs and cats, and currently have 2 3-year old cats. I am a teacher so during the school year I only do house sitting on the weekends! For drop in’s and dog walking, I am available both during the week and weekends, however I am not available until 4:00 pm or later on weekdays! I have a bunch of time off during the summer and would love to take on some extra work getting to help take care of your furry friends! I like to stick to instructions, every pet is different and they all have different preferences and needs. But I can help give them potty breaks, meals, water, walks and exercise, play, cuddles, and just extra enrichment!

Ashley was amazing! 😍 She was extremely patient with my dog that has anxiety issues. She took time to let him get comfortable with her. In addition to that, she was very thoughtful, and has sent messages throughout the whole process, from her ETA to all of the dog related updates. 🍀

About: I wholeheartedly believe that dogs make our lives better, not only emotionally but physically! They can cheer you up when you’re feeling down and sometimes they end up taking you on a walk instead of the other way around! Give a dog the kind of attention and love they give you and they will be happy and healthy also! My dog has made me feel better and I believe that dogs have emotional needs too! I love to work out and dogs deserve to get exercise too! I’ve had dogs my whole life and have seen the benefits from simply getting daily exercise and social interaction! I have even been helping take care of dogs that my roommates are asked to watch at my house so I have even more experience with how Rover works and how to take care of dogs! hi my name is samantha and i am a sophomore at southeastern university! i absolutely love all dogs and will smile at the just the sight of one:) i truly believe that dogs make humans lives better! dogs bring so much joy and love into a home and i’ve experienced that in my own life growing up with dogs! they know when your sad and need cheering up, and i’ve come to realize that they need us just as much as we need them! your dog needs love and attention, and that’s where i come in! simply taking your dog on a walk or visiting during the day to provide physical activity is what i can offer! i want to provide your pet with the care it needs to live a happy and healthy life! i’m just a college girl who loves dogs but can’t afford one of my own yet. i would love to be your dog walker or pet sitter and i have plenty of free time to do so! i am available in the afternoons during the week and all day saturday! I am very patient and give great care to dogs who are more scared and sensitive to new environments and people. I want to make each pet feel comfortable with me and with their environment. During walks, keeping the pet at my side at all times is imperative. I follow instructions given to me by owners and ensure their pet is my utmost priority.
