A belated review! Barbara watched Tilly for a weekend in June. We received updates during her stay, including some cute pictures of them cuddling/tolerating our pup's very early wake ups. We know Tilly had a good time because she always pulls us toward their house if we're walking nearby. We also loved their fenced in backyard. We would definitely book them again the next time we're in need of a sitter.

We highly recommend Barbara and Simon—they were flexible, responsive, and took great care of our dog for almost two weeks! We will definitely be reaching out to them again.

Barbara and Simon took great care of Bodhi and made our 6 nights away stress-free. Bodhi enjoyed running with their pooch Mila, and receiving photo updates of him hanging out helped us when we were missing him. I would definitely recommend.

We can't wait to play!

We love meeting new pups and we look forward to taking care of yours!

Our flexible schedules mean that your dog will be with someone most of the time. Mila, our Jack Russell-Beagle mix, is always happy to have someone to play tug-o-war with out in the backyard, or even just cuddle and nap with.

Both of us grew up with and around dogs, and since we've been on Rover, we've cared for all kinds ...

When Barbara watches your pet

We have a great backyard that dogs love to play and run around in. It's also the perfect spot to catch a lazy nap in the sun.

We'll go on walks around Capitol Hill. We especially enjoy visiting Eastern Market and Lincoln Park.

Back at home, we're well-trained at giving belly rubs and back scratches. Your pup is welcome to get cozy with us on our sofa!
