Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Kayla stayed with my two puppies and was amazing!! She updated me daily about their day and sent many pictures of my fur babies! Will definitely reach out again!”
“Lots of people are dog people, Isabel is a dog NERD (complimentary). When I leave my dog Zinn with them, I know he's not only having his physical needs met, but is with someone who *wants* to hang out with him, and is attuned and attentive to his ~feelings~ (my dog is like if someone gave a teddy bear anxiety). Top-tier pet parent, I have and would and will leave my dogs in her care any time.”
“Sebastian is a fantastic pet sitter. They administered the medicine perfectly. They took so many pictures and gave me many updates (which I love)! Bubba warmed up really quickly. 12/10 would recommend!”
“Gray was awesome and I would absolutely recommend her. She was thoughtful, responsive, and attentive to my dog and we will definitely be rebooking with Gray in the future.”
“Janice took great care of my newly-adopted, senior GSD mix, Granger! Bonus was getting to meet a 20-minute old lamb at Janice's beautiful farm! I cannot recommend Janice enough. If I need sitting services in the future, I will seek her care.”
“Emily was clearly a warm and caring person. I felt very secure and comfortable knowing that we had such a fine person looking after our dog and our house. Great job!”
“Sid had a great time at Jane's. He loved running around in the field with her pack of friendly dogs, and I appreciated all of the photo and video updates Jane sent while we were away.”
About: I love animals and grew up around dogs, cats and horses. I have been taking care of my neighbors and friend’s pets since age 12. I joke with my friends that I am basically a dog — I need walks and love to cuddle on the couch — so your pet’s joy is my joy! I can fit your animal’s speed — whether that’s high energy, loves play/ physical/mental stimulation or likes it low and slow, with an emphasis on resting, cuddling, or just being in the same room together. Currently, I have an 11 year old cat and walk small, medium and large dogs at the local shelter, giving me experience building trusting relationships with animals with a wide range of experiences. My pet care style is affectionate with solid boundaries and I am experienced at observing pet behavior to keep your pet safe and comfortable. I love watching dog training videos and am excited to consistently learn YOUR pet. I seek to meet the needs of your pet, whatever that might be — in play time, walks, brushing, feeding or chill time. I love building relationships with animals and treat them as my own while they are in my care. And, I love sending you photos and videos of our time together! I work from home, so am happy to keep your pet company on week days, weeknights and weekends while you are away, depending on your and your pet’s needs. Caring for dogs in a place that they feel safe, like their own home, is a priority. I am comfortable following a pet’s usual routine or creating a new one for us.
“James was a pleasure to have in our home! He was able to stay with our kitty so she didn't lose it when we were gone :) We're very thankful for his professionalism and willingness to stay!”
“Lindsey was amazing and treated my two dogs like her own. She was great at keeping me posted with updates and photos and seemed to genuinely enjoy spending time with them. She also took good care of our house. We can’t wait to have her back again!!”
“Simon was a wonderful pet sitter for our dogs. One of them is blind, and Simon was attentive, responsible and communicative w us. I recommend him.”
“Pamela is amazing with pets! She treats them like her own children! She has adopted dogs and raised a puppy from my sister’s dogs litter. Any animal in Pamela’s care is treated with utmost respect and care. She even helped me care for my horse and is very knowledgeable and gentle with all animal. Would trust her to care for any of my animals!”
“Masoomah is a true animal lover! She’s stopped by to check in on my cat when I’m away for his wet food and stays and plays with him to keep him comfortable. It’s even more special since she was the one who helped me pick him out at the UCSPCA!”
“I’ve never left a pet overnight with someone who wasn’t a friend but Tatiana was so wonderful at the meet & greet that I booked her for a second stay even before the first happened. Turns out, I was right! She went above and beyond during her hang with Tipu. Communication was excellent (and hilarious) before, during, and after. As was her care for my little stinker. I highly recommend Tatiana for your pet - just don’t book her when I need her!”
“Kerin did a fantastic job with our very young, energetic dogs that were extra energized from the rainy days we just had. The house looked fantastic and the dogs were so calm when we came home so we know they were so well taken care of! Would hire her again in a heartbeat! Thank you , Kerin!!!”
About: I've had pets my entire life. I've owned everything from a Savannah monitor to an entire salt water aquarium. I've hatched sharks and bred Goldendoodles for 3 years. I currently own a Standard poodle 🐩 named Lucy. She's my pride and joy. What else sets me aside from everyone else? Well, I have experience in training my own service dog and I provide constant updates! Your pet will be in my company 24/7 as my job schedule is very flexible. So you can also expect photo updates at any time you'd like. I live on a private dead end road next to a beautiful waterfall with a nice front and backyard. Our home is a 3 bedroom house with a finished basement. All pets I'm sitting would be watched inside and walked often. If your pet swims they will enjoy the waterfall!
“Anna did a great job watching over our pets and our home! She gave us updates with pictures to show them having fun each day and we could tell that they were being really well cared for! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a caring pet sitter.”
“Claire did a great job. I appreciated the check-ins. My dog really loved her.”
“I cannot praise Rochelle highly enough. She has taken such good care of our dogs that I don't think twice about leaving. Blue [a doberman] loved her "Aunt Rochelle" and was always happy to see her, even though it meant we would be away. Blue had Wobblers and needed extra attention and a caring hand. Rochelle was there for us through that. Now we have a young dog with tons of energy and a stubborn disposition. Rochelle has no problems with Sandy. She even brought her a new toy this last time so that they could make even more of playtime. Rochelle is dependable and punctual. I highly recommend her for your furbaby.”
About: I am currently a member of the orchestra now at bard college as a cellist. I just finished my masters at the eastman school of music in Rochester. I found rover 5 years ago with my sister in minneapolis and have been loving it since! I am an orchestral musician and rehearse but using rover is great because a lot of my work is done practicing so I love sharing music with the dogs I meet I make sure every dog feels safe and comfortable with a new person around them. I treat new dogs as if they were my own.
