Monica was OUTSTANDING! This was our first experience with Rover and our first time leaving our rescue dog to go on vacation. We contacted Monica 6 months in advance and she stopped by a few times to get to know our little guy. He is a typical high anxiety ankle biting Chihuahua and only likes a few people. He was an escape artist and Monica had to keep coming up with new ways to keep him from getting out. It was so nice to receive pics and updates each time she visited the house. We were so relieved when she sent a pic of the 2 of them snuggling on the couch. I highly recommend Monica!

Jenevieve totally saved our vacation! I had originally hired another Rover sitter to drop in on our dog while we were on vacation. The other sitter didn't show up for 2 visits. Luckily I was able to book super last minute with Jenevieve and she is awesome! She was always there on time to take care of my dog. He is 15 and takes heart meds, so it's important that he gets them twice a day. She seemed to really care for my dog and sent pictures every visit. I was totally impressed with her attention to his care. If you are looking for a great sitter, look no further!

Tarah is such a great cat sitter! Our kitties warmed up to her so quickly. Very flexible scheduling, always responsive via text or Rover message, kept us in the loop with lots of cute pics of our babies. Will definitely be rebooking in the future!

Tanya was extremely attentive to our cats while we were gone and very attuned to their body language and (obviously) non-verbal communication. She was also great at communicating with us. Couldn’t recommend a better caretaker - would gladly hire her again!

I have known Jaden for almost 20 years and from the beginning his passion for dogs has shown through. I remember the day when he showed up to school claiming his parents had gotten him a puppy named Zeus. His childhood passion for Zeus continued as they both grew up together. Every time I came to visit Zeus was there running in the yard or cuddling up next to you while watching a movie. Zeus living a long and loved life thanks to the care and love from Jaden.

Taylor and I have know each other for a few years, and she’s always been an avid animal lover. When my family got our puppy, she immediately offered to look after him if the need ever arose. We started with a short over night trip and she was so attentive. She sent multiple updates for our happy boy. From that point forward we used her services any time we went out of town. Her communication is always top notch and every time our pup came back tired and happy. You can’t go wrong trusting Taylor with your fur-baby. She’ll love them like her own and go above and beyond each and every time.

Sidney did a great job with her drop-in visit. We came home to a happy, content dog and it was comforting to get photos midday and know he was getting a break from his kennel. We would hire her again!

Molly did an amazing job looking after my 2 cats. She went above and beyond dealing with my difficult diabetic kitty. I can't thank her enough for all the tricks and tactics she did to get my cat a shot when he was being resistant.

Rihanna is amazing with pets! As a dog owner myself, I trust her completely with my two dogs—they mean the world to me. She's always loved animals, growing up with dogs of her own. Rihanna is funny, smart, and incredibly trustworthy. I wholeheartedly recommend her!

About: I have raised dogs, cats, bunnies, horses, and chickens my entire life. I currently have a Pug and a Boston Terrier, both puppies. I work from home and can provide day care, over nights, walks, pop-ins, etc. I am right down the street from Gateway so if you need a place to drop your animal off on your way to work downtown, I make a convenient drop off location. Very flexible with times. Air conditioning inside, large fully fenced backyard, and walks daily. 24/7 availability for pet care so long as we communicate in advance. I work from home and can be available based on your needs. I am available for drop off and pick up any time. There are a few times throughout the day where I will be driving my kids to and from events. We can communicate and work around those times. I also have a keypad. Animals are watched closely in the home and kept inside the fence in the backyard under supervision. When on walks animals are always on leash and are one on one with me. Separate food and water bowls are used. My yard is cleared of excrement daily. All animals must be up to date with shots and worming and flea/tick prevention.
