I could not have asked for a better pet sitting/Rover experience. This was our first time leaving our highly anxious dogs. Ever. Courtney was so patient and kind with them and made them feel so at ease. She sent me updates every night and made sure that worrying about the dogs wasn’t ruining my trip. 10/10 would use Courtney again and again and again!

Courtney does a wonderful job! When we returned home, our dogs were happy and healthy. She checks in at least daily and will care for your dogs as if they are her own. It is such a comfort knowing our dogs are in such good hands when we have Courtney sitting for us!

K9 passion with behavior background

I have worked in animal behavior for several years. In college, I specifically studied anxiety and aggression behaviors, while also working as an animal trainer. I was recruited after college to help start up a new neuroscience lab in Houston because of my animal training expertise. I am well versed at using operant conditioning to teach animals complex behaviors, and I am able to combine that with the ability to read each animal’s body ...

What Courtney would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if a dog has any sort of anxieties or aggressive tendencies before sitting. I will not say no to the job, but I would prefer to know beforehand to prepare. I will be ecstatic to care for your dog regardless of breed!
