Renee is just awesome: prompt, professional, and personable. She has done a great job with our three dogs and communicates often. She was not intimidated to care for our elderly diabetic dog and it put my mind at ease knowing the pets were in such good hands!

Sean took wonderful care of my dog, Stassi, and my home! I was out of the country for 3 weeks and he stayed at my home the whole time. He was very thorough in gathering information about my home and Stassi before I left and asked questions I didn't even think of. His communication was professional and consistent. He sent me messages regularly about what was going on at home and with Stassi and even sent several pictures. My home was clean and as I left it. Most importantly he cared for Stassi as his own. I couldn't ask for a better dog sitter! Thank you Sean!

Taylor is our go-to petsitter. She is very loving toward our pets and follows all instructions we give her. She has experience caring for our grumpy cats, administering their anxiety medication, and making them feel safe enough with her to cuddle and play. She has experience caring for our large, energetic dog, including recovery care after two separate surgeries. She is a great communicator and always prioritizes the health and happiness of the pets she takes care of.

Emma was a fantastic dog and house sitter! We'd never used Rover before and we're so happy we did and found Emma. She was very responsive and followed up to ensure a meet and greet as initially scheduled, and was detail oriented making sure she got to know their routine during that visit. During the stay, she sent pics of our babies throughout the weekend with updates on how they were - very apparent that our babes loved her! Emma was kind enough to also do a couple last minute favors around the house like watering a couple plants outside. We had a better trip away knowing she was there and are excited to have her for future needs. Thank you, Emma!

I recently had the pleasure of leaving my dog, Bella, in the care of Rebecca, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the moment we met, she exuded warmth and professionalism, immediately putting both myself, my husband, and Bella at ease. Throughout Bella's stay, I received regular updates and adorable photos, showing just how much fun she was having. It was clear that Becca not only provided excellent care but also formed a genuine bond with Bella. The personalized attention and love Bella received were truly heartwarming. Additionally, Rebecca was incredibly accommodating with our schedule and went above and beyond to ensure Bella's routine was maintained. She communicated daily and explicitly on her last day regarding what time she was leaving Bella, that the plants were watered, and the yard was cleaned up! The care and thoroughness was perfect for our elderly dog, as well as, us her doting parents leaving our home and fur-baby in capable and caring hands. I highly recommend Becca to anyone looking for a reliable and loving dog sitter. We're grateful for the exceptional care and will use her again soon!

Stephanie was great looking over my dog Grady. She came by the house prior to house sitting to talk through everything to ensure my pup has a great time while I’m gone ? I will definitely contact Stephanie again for house sitting/boarding.

Blair took care of our 3 dogs and 2 cats for 4 nights. She sent daily updates with pictures which we appreciated. She was quick to respond. The dogs all seemed happy. She even was available to stay an extra night when our flight was cancelled. Luckily my husband was able to get home so she didn’t need to. I felt very comfortable with her when she came to meet us and the animals.

About: Hi! I grew up apart of a family that loves pets, especially dogs. Some pets I have lived with are birds, turtles, a snake, cats, bunnies, tarantula, lizards, and goats to name a few. The most dogs we have had at one point is 7 – from a dachshund mix to a great dane and English mastiff. So, I love dogs whether they are small or big and love connecting with them. I have previous experience dog sitting for family, friends, and others in my community. I don’t shy away from most pets and would love to take care of yours! :) I grew up with dogs so I am very familiar with taking care of them on a daily basis. I love walking, playing, and snuggling with dogs. I work a full time job but it is mainly work from home so I am available for drop ins. I usually work 9am to 5pm so I could do drop ins and walks outside of these times and possibly around noon (lunch time). My availability is very flexible on the weekends. I am very kind to animals and make sure they are healthy and being taken care of. I pay attention to them and to the environment they are in as well. I believe I am patient and compassionate with pets. I also try to maintain the environment they are in, making sure everything is clean and no mess is left behind.

Carrie is absolutely amazing!! I didn't think it was possible (I'm a bit of a worry-wart), but I actually felt comfortable and calm knowing she was taking care of our boys while we were gone. She texted us adorable pictures of all three of our guys, multiple times a day! She also was incredibly quick to respond, whenever I wanted to check on them. She offered to video chat so we could say hi, and it was honestly just perfect! I will definitely be using her again (I actually already have her booked)!

Nicole LOVES animals. She has helped me with my two dogs and she has also helped other neighbors with their dogs, cats and bunnies. She is reliable and she cares about your animals like they are her own. She has fostered cats and helped rescue them. She is the best when you need help with your fur babies!

We are so grateful to Brittany for taking the best care of our dog Ace and cat Bobby over the long weekend at our house! We got updates at least twice a day on how they were doing, and lots of pictures of two happy pets! She sat outside in the yard with our dog Ace to enjoy the sunshine (something he loves!) and she also took him to the park several times! She was very patient with Ace when it took him some time to warm up to her too. You can tell she's knowledgeable about animals, and loves to be around them! She took great care of our house as well, and we just can't thank her enough!

About: We are looking to make some extra money and love animals so Rover was the perfect fit! Sarah is a neurodevelopmental and behavioral psychologist at CCHMC and Julian is a newly medically retired army vet. Our schedules are pretty flexible so we can usually accommodate families between the two of us! We have a rescue pup at my home who isn’t great with dogs, but we’d love to drop in and walk your pet! Sarah works full time during the week- but her schedule is flexible based on clinics. Julian is currently finding work and working some manual labor jobs. Your animal would not go longer than 6 hours without being let out! We like to follow the animals normal routine as much as possible. We will give lots of love, pets, cuddles, and extra attention as well!
