This is the second time Sasha sat for Cocoa and Lola. Having her house sit was great! The dogs were happy and Sasha kept us informed the whole time.

This was my first experience with Rover. I was anxious about leaving my dog for 10 days, but this situation worked beautifully. Thunder is an older dog and Janet understood her very well. We had some unexpected noisy construction work in the neighborhood and Janet took her for walks elsewhere so Thunder wouldn't be stressed by the noise. I received daily updates, which were thorough and eased my concerns about being gone so long. I would absolutely use Janet again for my next trip.

Jordyn you were absolutely amazing. You took care of Denim as if he were your own pup. You were so patient with him. Gave him time to get to know you and to start trusting you. Thank you for the constant updates and for the kind note you left for me. I really appreciate everything you've done for us. Thank you.

Jeanne is a pet angel - I am so grateful for her! My dog and cat LOVE her. She is very professional - always on time, very neat, and spends so much time playing with them. My dog looks for her for several days after we return. It's so nice to be able to go out of town and not worry about our pets.

Emily was great! We had to find someone with short notice, and she scheduled our meet and greet right away. I had to leave specific instructions for one of our dogs, and didn’t have any issues. Our dogs are very high energy, intimidating, and needy. They were happy boys when we came home. I also loved that she sent updates and pictures while we were away. We would definitely recommend Emily.

Samantha is fantastic! My family has known her for 16 years, and for over a decade I was her Girl Scout Leader. She is kind, friendly, respectful and dependable. Besides knowing her on a personal level, I know her from a pet-sitting point of view. We have always had cats, and Samantha is our go-to for taking care of them when we are away. Samantha has her own variety of pets at home (from dogs to guinea pigs) and has looked after other people's pets ranging from snakes to goats, so she knows how to take care of many different kinds of animals! She is always on time, and is respectful of our home. Also, Samantha makes sure to play with our fur babies - not just feed them and leave. We really appreciate that! Trust me, you will love Samantha.

She is good with animals and has had animals all throughout her life. She always takes care of any animal well and loves to be around animals. She’ll do an amazing job caring for the animals that need to be walked or fed. She is trustworthy, responsible, and reliable.

About: While in high school, I took care of the 2 dogs in my life (a mini dachshund and a greyhound/black lab mix). As an adult, I offered my knowledge to petsit several other dogs. I do not own any dogs myself, but I love all breeds. I am currently unemployed, so I have free availability at this point. I used to work 3rd shift, so I'm more used to evening hours, but I can work whenever you need me there. I will follow your instructions for how to care for your animal, never going beyond that without your express permission (something I expect from those watching my own animals). There are a few walking trails near my home that I am willing to take your dog on, if you approve.

Don has a love for animals beyond anyone I have met. He treats the pets with kindness and compassion. I refer him as the animal whisperer. Animals are not pets to him they are a part of his family. My dog loves him and gets excited when he would come by and when he would care for her when we were away.

She was wonderful and loving to my dogs. It was great to be able to know that my pets and house were taken care of. The dogs warmed up to her and they don't do that with everyone. She was great.

Elizabeth did such a wonderful job and went above and beyond to say the least! Our male dog started experiencing a limp that has been reoccurring all summer, so Elizabeth took him to our vet, stayed with him and even showed the Dr. videos she had taken to demonstrate the issue, and had us on speaker while Chase was examined. The house was in tip top shape when we returned home and both dogs were in excellent moods and happy to see us! If I could give Elizabeth 10 stars, I would...she is a star to us!!

About: What sets me apart from other sitters is my extensive experience and genuine passion for pet care. With over five years of pet sitting experience, I am skilled in administering medications, including injections and oral treatments, ensuring your pet’s health needs are met accurately and safely. I pride myself on my meticulous approach to cleaning; your house should be as clean as you left it when you return! Additionally, my love for all pets drives me to provide not just basic care, but also personalized attention and enrichment activities, ensuring your pet feels loved and engaged even in your absence. My commitment to your pet’s well-being and comfort truly distinguishes me from other sitters. Pet care is an integral part of my daily and weekly routine. Each day, I dedicate specific time slots for visiting and caring for pets, ensuring they receive consistent attention and care. My mornings typically start with feeding, refreshing water, and cleaning litter boxes for all the cats in my care. After the work day, I schedule playtime and enrichment activities tailored to each pet’s preferences. Evenings often involve another round of feeding, medication administration if needed, and a final check on their well-being. This structured routine ensures that every pet I care for receives the highest level of attention and affection, seamlessly integrating pet care into my everyday life. In my clients' homes, I follow their specific instructions and routines to maintain consistency for the pets. I feed, water, and administer medications as needed, clean litter boxes or cages, and offer playtime and companionship. I also monitor the pets' behavior and health, providing updates to the owners. My goal is to ensure that pets feel secure and loved, whether in my home or theirs.
