Amy got to our house on time and stayed until my husband and I got home. She stayed with our dog, who has developed a little separation anxiety since COVID started. She also took him on a walk while she was looking after him. We came home to a happy pup! We would recommend using Amy and we have already booked her again.

Korin was amazing at keeping in touch and looking out for our indoor/outdoor cat. Our cat is special in that she thinks she’s part human and part dog, and meows at the door to go in and out, and we can’t have a cat door because she likes to bring home live animals from time to time, so we shopped around on Rover till we found Korin. Korin has a very easy and calm demeanor, was incredibly responsive and communicative from start to finish, sent proofs of life etc, and left our home immaculate. We’ve already booked her for a second stay. Thank you Korin!

Christine was an incredibly attentive, caring, and loving caretaker for my baby ChaCha! She allowed for me to enjoy my vacation without worry and she sent adorable photos while I was out and about. Also, when airbnb changed my housing situation she went out of her way 3 nights in a row to sit my pup. Highly recommend her to any and all pet owners.

Kaumron was an excellent pet sitter and house sitter for my anxious senior dog and 2 cats! Kaumron is a pet owner himself, and his sensitivity with caring for pets really came through. He came through in a pinch with my last minute request, even stopping by for a run through before my trip to meet the animals. He asked lots of questions and was attentive to all their needs (medications, sensitivities, personality quirks of each pet), which made me feel really assured that the babies would be well cared for. He sent updates and pics of my pets while I was away to keep me informed. I was nervous about my dog’s high needs with frequent medications and her anxiousness with new people, but Kaumron was gentle with her and really listened and followed through with how to work with her needs. It was an overall wonderful first time pet sitting experience for my highly sensitive dog (and me!)

Gillian was prompt, professional, knowledgable, listened well and kind. It was very easy to set up care for our Aussie, despite the quirks of upstairs neighbors, street sweeping, and freezing cold old Victorian home. She was attentive to Skye and followed through on all the arranged care agreements...had pictures for the check ins and she also left the place in very clean tidied up condition! I have no problem recommending her!!

We needed a dog sitter to keep our high maintenance dog company while we went to a wedding in Berkeley. Chris was an outstanding partner to our dog for the 2 nights we had plans & made our trip. He was attentive and also fun to talk to during the hand offs. Zero regrets hiring Chris!!

I’ve asked Theresa on many occasions to cat sit my kitty and she’s been reliable and caring every time. She’s never neglected my cat, always makes sure he has everything he needs, and provides good company to him since he runs pretty anxious when there’s no one around. I definitely trust her with my cat.

Lena is by far the best cat sitter I have ever had! I have a 17-year-old cat with many health issues who needs medications 2x a day and lots of attention. Lena was able to stay at my house during my 5 day trip and not only attend to my cat's health needs but also bonded with her easily, gave her tons of love and attention, and stayed in touch with me through text at least twice a day. I was so relieved to have found someone I could trust to be both sensitive to kitty "moods", and responsible with all the food and medication instructions. I will definitely ask her to cat sit for me again if I need to leave town.

John is a blessing as a person and as a dog sitter! I basically have a mini zoo (2 cats and a dog) and he took amazing care of them while I was away for 2 weeks to visit family. He sent me pictures of them all every day, and he had constant communication with me when things didn’t go as planned. He worked around a crazy downstairs neighbor and even offered to take my dog to his own apartment to watch him overnight when my apartment didn’t work out due to Mr. Crazy Neighbor. He goes above and beyond and always makes time to make sure all of the animals are well taken care of. He was also my dog walker for my pup for months before the trip, and my dog LOVED him. John was always great at communicating, great with the animals and a fantastic person overall. If I ever need a sitter again, John will be my first call!

Emily was our go-to dog watcher before she moved to CA and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dog watcher! She watched our dog Teddy a dozen times and we were always so happy with her. She loved being with our dog and always took good care of him, even noticing some early symptoms of arthritis in him before we did. She was also responsive if we had any questions or concerns.
