“Candice has been so great in her communication and taking Jojo out on walks with lots of pics and updates. I appreciate Candice 's experience working with leash reactive dogs and the way she works with Jojo to ensure a safe and pleasant walk.”
“Alexis was great and made themself available at short notice. Alexis was responsive, communicated effectively and was attentive to our dogs needs. Alexis made me feel at ease knowing my doggo was being cared for. I would highly recommend Alexis to anyone with animal care needs!”
“I would highly recommend Jennifer as a dog walker on Rover.com. As my older sister, she has been so affectionate to our dog, Sunshine, giving her so much love and care. With Jennifer, your pets will receive the same love and attention, and you can trust that she will keep your furry family members safe and happy! Jennifer's love for animals will make her the perfect choice for caring for your pets.”
“Rubi is one of the most responsible people I know. She loves animals and will do amazing job! She is detail oriented and will always make sure things are done correctly.”
“Kaitlin checked in on our two cats while we were away for three weeks. She played with our very active cat and tired him out enough that he didn't tear up anything around the house. She was also able to entice our other very nervous kitty out to play. The cats were perfectly set with food, water, and litter the whole time she was taking care of them. She even indulged our active kitty on a walk, which we have never trusted a pet sitter to do before. She managed to keep him safe and occupied while he sniffed around the neighborhood and climbed trees. She sent us some very cute pictures of their adventure. Kaitlin has also been working in vet medicine for several years. Our cats luckily did not have any health problems while she was taking care of them, but we felt comfortable leaving them with her if something did come up. We also asked her some vet questions we had been wondering about and she had very helpful answers. Overall, she went above and beyond taking care of our cats.”
About: I've taken care of foster dogs and cats off and on since college 20 years ago in addition to pet sitting for friends and neighbors. I have extra experience with senior and under-socialized cats. I primarily work as a personal trainer in San Francisco a few mornings a week and often have extra free time in the afternoons, evenings and when clients travel. I can't think of a better use of free time than spending it with dogs and cats while making sure they get the care they need. I love to travel so I know what a huge relief it is to have my pets well taken care of when I'm away. I know routines are very important and comforting to most animals and therefore I will always strive to follow given instructions as closely as possible. I will provide a recap of each visit including photos unless owners opt out.
“april is a true professional! this is the first time ive needed a regular walker for my sweet but high energy dog, and she went above and beyond. it's obvious she cares deeply about dogs and i feel lucky to have snagged her to help me out! 11/10!”
“Shelly was wonderful! She came to meet Ollie ahead of the walks, and was fabulous walking Ollie. She was also really fast with communication. He loves her! We'll be rebooking for more walks. Highly recommend Shelly!”
“No exaggeration, Patrick is a bona fide cat whisperer. He thoroughly understands cat behavior and temperament. He is extremely patient with timid cats and can play with kittens for hours. I think he may even dream about cats. He adores them and they adore him.”
“Walker is great. He is a responsible and loving pet owner and caregiver, always puts the animals first. Your animals are in great and loving hands with Walker, you can trust him to the MAX.”
“We're so grateful for Michelle! She has taken care of our pup many times over this past year and our dog absolutely adores her (as do we)! Besides being reliable, she is also deeply thoughtful and detailed oriented. When handing our pup over to her, she's mindful to ask of routines that our dog is used to (including walk pattern/feeding times) in order to minimize stress for our pup. Michelle has also housesat for us with our pup several times, and she was communicative the whole time we were gone. She would send us updates with photos of our pup on her walks/during their snuggle time when we were away, and it gave us such peace of mind. Our pup threw up one time (which she does when she drinks too fast) and Michelle was quick to notify us and ask how to best care for her. Michelle is definitely our go to person to take care of Denali when we're away because we can count on her to take care of our pup like we would, and give her the attention and adoration that she deserves!”
“Adam made my unexpected work trip sooooo much easier! I knew my pup was in great hands. He was extremely communicative, skilled, punctual, and kind. My dog Dillon very clearly adores him already :) Very happy to have a local "go-to" in the future!”
“Since Jaz was young she has engaged readily with animals. Her love and responsibility has supported a horse, dogs and cats. She will care for your pet just as she does her own.”
“La Donna would be a great addition to your team as she is a lover of all animals, especially the 4 legged, tail-wagging ones... Her cat "Tyrone" who she had for 15 years, and her dog "Ziggy" who recently passed away were her loves in life and they were spoiled rotten..lol. She also helps care for our mom's dog "Simba", and he appreciates all the love, hugs, walks, and treats she gives to him. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with the TLC she'll show the animals as well as the good customer service to the owners.”

“J & C do a great job with our Belgian Mali--Mollie. She's very happy seeing them. They are very responsive and easy to deal with. Mollie will continue walking them each afternoon. Highly recommended!”
“Ashley is a great dog sitter. She has taken care of my dachshund, Yoshi, several times and she treats him as if he was her own. She is patient, caring, and Yoshi loves to go on walks with her. Definitely recommend.”
About: As an experienced pet lover, your furry friends will receive the utmost attention tailored to their unique needs. Ensuring a comfortable and joyful experience under my care. I work full time, but on my off days I have plenty of time to spend with your furry friend! I'm available for walks and drop-ins on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. For drop-ins and walks, I focus on providing attentive and personalized care. During drop-ins, I ensure pets receive their meals, refresh water bowls, and enjoy some playtime or companionship. On walks, safety and enjoyment are prioritized, with leashed strolls tailored to their energy levels. I aim to make these visits a positive experience, meeting both their physical and emotional needs.
“Liam has such a great energy around dogs! They’re immediately comfortable in his presence (including my large dog who can be very uncomfortable around new people) and he clearly has as much fun playing and spending quality time with dogs as they have with him. I would highly recommend his services!”
“I can't recommend Don enough. He is calm, compassionate, and steadfast in his care. I have a reactive dog, Yoshi, and there are very few people in the world that I trust to take care of her and Don is top among them. Don is really good at reading animal signals and knows how to build trust with them. I see it with Yoshi and how calm she is around Don, she is better behaved and a better listener in their care. It is clear there is a lot of love and trust. Don is so responsible and consistent, they are aware of the needs of creatures and how to support them in a positive way. Don is the best!”
“Leila will take care of your pet like her own. Her home is set up well for both dogs and cats, and she takes the time to accommodate to your pet when needed. She communicates well throughout the whole pet sitting process and ensures your pet is safe and sound.”
