We’re so happy we found Carissa on the Rover app! Would highly recommend her for walks and check-ins. She will be our go to dog walker whenever we need someone!!!

Our dog, Emma, LOVES Carissa! She sends us great reports and photos of Emma from her walks. So happy that we found someone we trust to give our pup some extra love and exercise each week!!

Carissa is AMAZING! Our pup is super shy and anxious and Carissa handles it no problem! She is super timely and very communicative- couldn’t ask for a better sitter!

What Carissa would like to know about your dog

I like to know their temperament, how they are with strangers and other dogs. I like to know their favorite toys and treats and their normal routine. I also want to know what you expect from the stay, how many updates you would like and if there is anything you would like me to work on your dog with.

Additional Skills

Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Carissa watches your pet

I like to do what your dog likes to do! I'm happy to play their favorite games or even work on a few tricks with them if you'd like some training help. If they're anxious or need some comfort I know how to make them feel secure through distraction and pets.
