If i could give 6 stars I would. I’ve never been comfortable leaving my pack alone until I met Jessica. She is so thorough and is never afraid to ask questions. Followed my instructions to a T and even thought of stuff that I didn’t, which ended up helping the animals be more comfortable. Thanks to her I was able to take my first vacation in years with no worries about my pups or cats (she even helped with my aquariums)! This is the person you want taking care of your animals, no doubt.

Nina went above and beyond caring for my kitties like they were her own! She surprised them with new toys and gave them all the attention and love they needed. She provided updates everyday and let me relax and enjoy my vacation knowing they were in good hands. I would definitely recommend Nina to anyone looking for a pet sitter!

I would highly recommend Kenda to help care for your pet! She goes above and beyond to make your furry loved one feel extra special and loved. She can handle long or short walks and is very reliable. She has watched my furry friend for a few hours and even over night and I’ve never had to worry if he has been properly taken care of. 10 out of 10 stars, you will not be disappointed with her services.

Returned to a calm happy pup, thanks to yet again Ewan’s professional and loving care of our dog. The pics he sent during each visit documented his thoroughness and kindness and even made us laugh at some of the facial expressions he captured. Sign him up for your next canine coverage needs - just not on the days in need him 😉!

I didn’t think it was possible for someone to love my dog as much as I do, or for my dog to love someone as much as she does me...until we met Debra. I cannot say enough good things about Debra and her work. She is responsible, respectful, trustworthy, and an excellent communicator. She is kind and fun and knowing my dog would see her every day gave me as much comfort as if it were my own sister, cousin, or friend.

I have been using Kai to pet sit for several years, and I couldn't be happier with his care for my dog and three cats. He follows my instructions to a tee, ensuring each pet gets the attention, feeding, and medication they need. My home is always left in pristine condition, and the regular updates and photos he sends gives me peace of mind. Kai is extremely reliable and trustworthy. My pets love him and I recommend him without hesitation.

Rebecca is our neighbor and prior to signing up for Rover, she has watched our corgi, Chauncey when we have had to travel out of town and were unable to bring him. He loved his time there and when we take him for walks around our neighborhood he will often try to walk up to Rebecca's front door to go back for another visit. We would definitely trust her with Chauncey again the next time we have to travel without him.

Kristin is great with dogs. She has been around them her entire life. She can calm a dog that gets anxiety and can get an older dog to move more.

Nelly watched my cat while I was away on a business trip. Excellent job taking care of Blizzard. He was well fed. From all the photos, well walked. He spent time outside playing (he is an indoor cat) safely in a park. I have nothing but praise for the care and maintenance I received for Blizzard.

There are few people on the planet who love pets and animals in general, but especially dogs, than Sofia. She has been a most-valued employee at a doggy daycare company in Northern Virginia for years and still comes home each and every day with adorable stories and uses cute pictures of the dogs, who she knows well by both name and temperament, to illustrate her stories. Sofia is now a college sophomore at UAlbany, where she is a Honor student, yet every time she returns home from school, Sofia runs off to see “her” dogs. Beyond all this, Sofia is dependable, responsible, and her integrity is beyond reproach. Please know that your pet could not be in better, more loving hands 😊

Natasha did a great job with our kitties! This was our first time using the Rover app and we were a little nervous about it, but Natasha sent us updates that put us at the ease (including letting us know when we had packages delivered) and we came home to happy kitties. We will definitely reach out to her the next time we need a sitter.
