Sidney helped us out super last minute. I had a different sitter bail on me two days before a wedding, and Sidney jumped in to take the whole day dog sitting. Seriously wish I could give her a 10/5 stars, she communicated well and was so sweet. Thanks so so much Sidney we appreciate you!!

Jenna was such a wonderful sitter for our 2 dogs for a 3 day vacation. House was very clean and she took out the trash and stripped the beds, even though we didn’t tell her to do so. The dogs were so comfortable with her and it was like we weren’t even gone! We will definitely be booking again in the future!!

We're over the moon with Tarah's stellar care for our two bulldogs while we were away. She handled everything like a pro, from giving them their daily Benadryl to dealing with their sassy attitudes with patience and grace. Coming back to a house that was better than we left it and two happy pups was the best feeling ever. Tarah's genuine love for animals shines through in everything she does, making her our top choice for pet sitting. If you're looking for someone reliable and caring, Tarah's your person. Huge thanks to Tarah for making our time away stress-free and our dogs' tails wag like crazy!

Cory was awesome. I will definitely book with him again. He was on time and kept in contact with me throughout the house sitting process. I had a bad experience with Rover before and he has certainly renewed my faith about the program. Thanks again Cory!!

Allison was amazing! She stayed at our house with our two big dogs over the weekend while we were getting married. We had a lot going on, but she provided updates to ease our minds to know our boys were being cared for. When we got home, our house was cleaner than we left it. She is so great, and we would recommend her to anyone!

I am writing to highly recommend Ryan for any dog sitting or pet care position. Ryan has been our trusted dog sitter for the past years, and his dedication, reliability, and genuine love for animals have been consistently evident. Ryan has taken care of our two dogs, Seamus and Tonks, on numerous occasions, sometimes for extended periods. Each time, we have returned to find our pets happy, well-cared for, and our home in immaculate condition. He has always treated our dogs at least as well as his own. Ryan's responsibilities have included feeding, walking, administering medication, and providing plenty of affection and playtime. One of Ryan's most commendable traits is his attention to detail and his ability to follow any specific instructions we provide. He is also highly observant and has alerted us to any unusual behaviors or health concerns he has noticed with our pets. His prompt communication and updates while we are away provide great peace of mind. Ryan is not only responsible and dependable but also incredibly personable and kind. Our dogs adore him, and it is clear that the feeling is mutual. His genuine passion for animals makes him an ideal candidate for any pet care role. I have no hesitation in recommending Ryan for dog sitting or any pet care position. He has consistently exceeded our expectations and has proven himself to be a trustworthy and caring individual. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Leah for the position of pet caretaker. I have known Leah for my whole life and have consistently been impressed with their dedication, compassion, and professionalism when it comes to the care of animals. Leah has a natural rapport with pets of all kinds, and I have personally witnessed their ability to connect with, calm, and care for animals in a variety of settings. Whether it's providing routine care, handling special dietary needs, or managing pets with health concerns, Leah has always shown a level of attentiveness and expertise that is truly commendable. One of the qualities that sets Leah apart is their proactive approach to pet care. They do not hesitate to go the extra mile to ensure the well-being of the animals in their charge. This level of initiative is something that I believe any pet owner would greatly appreciate. Furthermore, Leah's communication skills are excellent. They keep pet owners updated with regular reports and are always available to discuss any concerns or questions that may arise. Their reliability and trustworthiness have made them a go-to for pet care among our community. In conclusion, I am confident that Leah would be a valuable asset to your team and provide the highest level of care to the pets they look after. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information or clarification. Warm regards, -Kylie Krauss

About: I have lived with dogs 20+ years of my life. My partner and I currently have 2 dogs of our own who are both rescues. Arthur is our 6 year old playful, loving lab mix and Taz is our 4 month old sassy puppy! We love caring for pets and are excited to spread the love to more doggy friends! You can count on us to be reliable, respectful, engaged, and loving to your pets. We will ensure that they get exercise and the love they need while under our care. We will make sure the environment is safe for all pets and make sure your pet has access to food and water at all times. We work from home full time and will make sure your pet has the necessary potty breaks they need and will not be left in a kennel all day long. We love dogs and are excited to provide a safe + comfortable place for your pet so you can enjoy your time away from home knowing your dog(s) is/are in good hands. I work full-time from home, which makes pet care fit very easily into my daily and weekly routine. We have 2 dogs of our own and we never leave them home alone longer than 4 hours. I have a partially fenced in yard. The yard is safe and a great size to give your pet ample space to run around and exercise.
