Our elderly dog was safe and happy while we were on an extended vacation out of the country. Jason communicated with us as we discussed prior to our trip and everything was taken care of just like we planned.

My dog is usually wary around strangers, and he was happily jumping up on Molly the first time he met her! I felt completely secure leaving him in her calm, capable care for almost 2 weeks. Molly was wonderfully communicative throughout the entire process, including sending photo and video updates. She also had to deal with unexpected crate rest the last three days when my dog happened to have a flare up of a condition during her stay. She dealt with taking him to the emergency vet with incredible grace and compassion, stayed with him as much as she possibly could and kept me abreast of the situation. She also took beautiful care of my home. I would highly recommend her!

We recommend Faith as a Rover without hesitation. She is a strong communicator and super dependable. Before she agreed to house and dog sit our pup, she arranged a Meet and Greet to make sure she and our pup were a good fit. Her pouch of homemade(?) treats and warm, competent demeanor put our pup immediately at ease. During Faith's care tour of our pup, he was suffering from a paw wound caused by foxtail removal that required twice daily application of Animax. Faith is a vet tech, and she had no issue making sure that our pup received the topical treatment that he needed. She even distracted him by putting peanut butter on her forehead so that he was distracted licking it while she tended to his paw, so creative and compassionate!!! She took our pup on twice daily hour long walks and followed all of our care guidance to the "T." She sent us pictures throughout her care tour which helped us feel at ease. Faith will go above and beyond in her care for your pup. Since her care of our pup, she has even followed up with veterinary, care, and training tips/referrals for our OTHER dog who she didn't even care for but who she met during the Meet and Greet. Faith is a wealth of information and a great resource generally. We felt so lucky that our big baby boy got to be cared for by her, and we'd hire her again in a second.

Katie was amazing! She house sat for us for FOUR dogs total (3 of ours plus my mother in laws pup) and I felt super comfortable with her taking care of our zoo of loved ones. She sent updates and any questions she had while we were gone, and when we returned the pups were all happy and healthy. Very smart and trustworthy - strongly recommend!

Lauren is an exceptional pet caregiver with a lifetime of experience caring for dogs. I've known Lauren for years and her compassionate, responsible, and caring nature towards people and animals make her the perfect choice for anyone seeking a trustworthy pet sitter or dog walker. When she watched my dog one summer, she was always communicative, on-time, and reliable. She also was super attentive and responsible at the many minor tasks and notes that I asked her to perform for my dog, such as specific feeding times, walking intervals, and play times. My dog loves her and got along with her very fast, it was like my dog knew Lauren forever. I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else! Lauren has a unique ability to connect with both people and animals, which allows her to be one of the best pet caregiver I have known. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a pet caregiver anytime someone asks me if I know who is the best pet sitter in town.

Lissette would be a great addition to the Rover team as she is very caring and knows how to handle a variety of animal temperaments. Aside from her knowledge of animal behavior, she also has veterinary assistant skills under her belt. Lissette knows how to adjust to each pets needs as each animal is different and shows love to all. I know Lissette would care for each pet that she sits as though they are her own.

Khala was a wonderful sitter for our 2 pups. She is very communicative and considerate. We felt very comfortable leaving our girls and home in her care. She gave the pups lots of love and attention, and it was very clear that they loved their time with her when we returned home. We would highly recommend her and most definitely will use her again to look after the girls. Thank you!

Thank you so much exceptional care you provided to my beloved dog, Millie. You truly went above and beyond, and I am incredibly grateful for your dedication and expertise. Millie had an incredible time with you, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the moment I dropped Millie off, it was evident that she was in capable hands. Your genuine love and passion for dogs shone through, instantly putting both Millie and me at ease. Your friendly demeanor created a warm and welcoming environment, allowing Millie, normally a bit anxious, to feel comfortable and loved throughout her stay. I also want to extend my heartfelt appreciation for the way you handled a significant issue that arose during Millie's stay. Your quick thinking and proactive approach were truly remarkable. When Millie unexpectedly fell ill, you promptly contacted me, provided updates on her condition, and ensured she received the necessary medical attention. Your attentiveness and care during this challenging time were invaluable, and I am forever grateful for your expertise and support. Thank you for keeping me informed with regular updates and adorable photos. I travel a lot for business so it always heartwarming to get updates on my baby! It was evident that Millie was having a fantastic time with you, enjoying walks, playtime, and plenty of affection. Your dedication to her well-being and happiness was truly remarkable. Ethan, I cannot thank you enough for the exceptional care you provided to Millie. Your expertise, attentiveness, and genuine love for dogs make you an outstanding dog sitter. I would highly recommend you to anyone. Millie and I are forever grateful, and we look forward to entrusting her care to you again in the future.

What can I say? Hieremila is the best. She communicates very well with regular photos and updates, she was sweet with my high-energy dog, she took great care of our home, and she really listened to my dog's and my needs. If your pet deals with even mild anxiety issues, she gets it. I particularly appreciated her staying a bit later than expected on a Friday night - which was totally optional - so that she could hand off dog care in person when I got home and help my dog avoid potential separation anxiety. I'm so grateful for her help. Recommend without reservation.
