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!

Jenna is a genuine joy. Her immensely warm demeanor and professional presence made us feel incredibly comfortable leaving our crew of silly misfits in her care during our first partnership with Rover. Responsible, respectful and a real pleasure to work only begins to describe her and her gift of service. We are truly blessed to consider her to be a member of our pack. Thank you for you, Jenna! 💜

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!!

Claudia was my first experience with Rover and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction! Very friendly and got along well with my Norwegian Elkhound, Stella. She stayed the night with her while I was out of town, taking her on multiple walks and kept me updated with pictures. Next time I need a Rover, I will be messaging Claudia first!

Our dog is a little nervous and he seemed to do great with Molly staying with him for the weekend! We got periodic photo updates so we could see how he was doing. We’d definitely have Molly stay with him again!

About: I’ve been an animal lover my whole life. Neighbors, friends and family have all relied on me to walk, feed and bathe and even style their pets! Not only did I take care of others but I have my very own fur baby that I’ve been taking care of since I was a kid. I’m currently a part-time college student, a dog groomer, content creator and an aspiring entrepreneur to open my own business one day. I love to stay busy and active so your pup will get plenty of energy with me! I love to work out routinely and it’s so much more fun with dogs at my side! I am available all week and weekends just shoot me a text to let me know ahead of time, what’s your schedule, etc. I have a fenced yard and I have a dog of my own to keep your fur baby accompanied! I can crate my dog or yours if needed. I love all dogs as they are my own. It’s in my religion that animals are most sacred, so you can trust your pet is in good hands! I’m not greedy, not in this for the money, I’m willing to negotiate prices, whatever’s easier for you and to make your life more peaceful. Seriously! I do not mind! :)
