“First time we’ve used lily, she is a great communicator & wonderfully caring & responsible for our dogs. We wil definitely ask her to dog walk & dog care again.”
“Gray is the perfect person to care for any of your pets! She has taken care of my (wildly) enthusiastic 1.5 year old Golden Retriever with incredible patience, love, and responsibility. Gray is my go-to with puppy care and goes the extra mile with lots of play and attention during their time with my pup. My dog gets SO EXCITED when getting to hang with Gray yet, Gray somehow manages to have a calming presence on my dog soon after the initial greeting is over. I couldn't recommend a pet sitter/walker any more highly than Gray!”
About: I’ve been caring for my 9 year old lab-mastiff mix, Wadadli, since he was 8 weeks old. Our favorite walks are the Evergreen Cemetery trails, Fore River Sanctuary and Capisic Pond Park. Wadi and I both enjoy playing and walking with puppy to senior dogs. My schedule is flexible, but prefer walks between 9am and 12pm. I’m happy to drive to pick up your pup and will offer to send you photos throughout our walk or play. I have a fenced in back yard and dog friendly home. I’ll always ask about your pets allergies and preferences before finalizing a walk or play plan.
“I have known Julia for more than 12 years. She's responsible, thoughtful and conscientious. She also has a gentle nature that animals and humans both gravitate towards. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a caregiver for anyone's pet.”
“Julia is absolutely the best! We met for a meet and greet beforehand and my dog instantly fell in love and was comfortable with her. She sends detailed updates and photos during their walks. I know my pup is in great hands which puts my mind to ease. Super thankful to have found her on Rover and would highly recommend her to others”
“Jennifer has been a pet sitter for my dog, Ella for a long time. Ella seems very happy and is always well cared for. She sends us pictures and updates throughout the day. Jennifer is caring, attentive and extremely reliable. She has a great deal of experience in caring for dogs, which is evident. Ella looks forward to playing with her dog, who is very sweet. We are new to the area and we were initially hesitant in leaving Ella with a pet sitter but we very comfortable and know Ella is safe with Jennifer. We highly recommend Jennifer without any hesitation.”
“A friend of ours recommended Bryan and we’re so grateful she did! Our pup Percy has only been on a few walks with Bryan so far, but he’s already comfortable with him and is clearly excited to see him. Bryan wasn’t deterred when he heard Percy’ is barrier reactive and I can tell Bryan’s calm nature helps Percy out on their walks. Highly recommend reaching out to Bryan!”
“Rose is fantastic with our dog. Kind, prompt, and compassionate. He’s not the most active guy and can be stubborn and Rose has embraced it all. We are so lucky to have found her.”
“I have known Elizabeth since 2009 and one of the things that I can say about her is her amazing love and connection with animals. She especially loves dogs. Elizabeth is a very responsible and dependable person. Though she has never given care to my dogs, both Winston and Wednesday love her. I have no doubt if you hire her, your dogs will love her.”
“We were in a jam, needing 3weeks of doggie care. Haley to the rescue! Conscious, caring and responsible. She’s a perfect 10. We highly recommend her.”
About: I grew up with cats and dogs - ranging in size and temperaments - and have loved animals since I was young. I have also been a solo pet parent. For previous clients, I have provided drop-in visits, including walks and playtime, as well as longer-term overnight care, including feedings, supplements and medication, and all the attention they desire. I understand how important it is to feel comfortable leaving your pets with someone that you can trust and rely on. I currently work a remote full-time job with flexible hours, so I am generally available throughout most weekdays and anytime on weekends. I am also open to long-term pet care/house sitting. Happy to accommodate your time preferences as much as possible. I like to take care of other's pets in the style of care that is normal to them. I want each pet to feel as comfortable and maintain their routine as much as possible, in order to ensure their trust and to relieve any anxiety they may feel. Owner's instructions are always extremely helpful in order to achieve this.
About: With a childhood filled with furry friends, my pet care approach is a blend of experience and heartfelt connection. Growing up surrounded by animals, I learned the language of wagging tails and content purrs. This background shapes the essence of my service – a commitment to provide your pets with the same warmth and understanding they've always known, making their time with me more than just care; it's a continuation of the loving environment they're accustomed to. I work as a professional photographer, but I have plenty of free time during the winter months to provide services. My schedule is pretty flexible. I meticulously create a secure space, free from hazards, ensuring your pet's well-being is the top priority. Through transparent communication and updates, I build trust, keeping you informed about your pet's activities and mood. The environment I provide is not just physically safe but emotionally reassuring. With a watchful eye and a caring touch, I strive to offer a haven that reflects the same love and attention your pet receives in your own home.
“Brandon was a great pet sitter! I have a cat with special needs and he was attentive and always kept me updated- it made me feel so much more comfortable with going out of town. He was also SO good with my other cat who is super shy. I will definitely be using him again!”
“My family is thankful for the outstanding care that Courtney gave to our dog Rosey over the years. Courtney is attentive, kind, and responsible. Our dog loved the times when she house sat. My family is especially thankful when Courtney cared for Rosey when our dog was recovering from spinal surgery. We wish that Courtney was still in Nashville to care for our dog!”
“Rob watches my black lab Harken whenever my wife and I leave town. He's a family friend that grew up with labs and he loves our dog just as much as we do. Whenever he watches our dog, Harken, he sends photos and takes him on long walks around Portland to the Eastern Prominade where he throws a tennis ball until my dog is content, which is no small feat. Our dog, Harken, starts to cry in the car every time we pass Rob's house because he want's to go over and visit. Rob's our favorite dog sitter.”
“Tucker has walked and taken care of my dog. He is prompt and takes the time to do what it is your dog wants to do, whether it be sniff the whole walk, be off leash or jog. He is the guy you want with your best friend.”
“Harrison is reliable and always wonderful to deal with. He takes the BEST photos of my dog during their walks together. It’s the highlight of my day opening the Rover Cards!”
About: I’ve had pets of all kinds for my entire life and have an older dog / young cat myself. I have helped raise dogs from puppies. I can also take care of pets who have special medical considerations :). I’m a 2nd year medical student and am either studying at home most days or can be flexible with whatever your pet care needs may be. I will abide by all requests set forth by the client in their home. I will make sure that your pet is safe and happy.
“Sophie was a very responsible dog walker. I felt comfortable with her taking care of my dog and trusted her in my house. She was friendly and seems to genuinely like dogs. She was extremely clean and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to watch their dog!”
“Katie has been an animal lover her whole life. Whether it's the beach, the woods, or a pretty path, Katie loves taking dogs for walks that your dog would love, not just her! She has experience training her own dogs at home and is always loving and patient with pets. Katie is always mindful of the specific commands and training that an owner uses with their dog, to make sure she's reinforcing everything that your pup has worked so hard to learn. She really is the perfect companion for your dog!”
