Emily was great with our dog and cat while we were gone. When she came back to house sit again, both pets were excited to see her (the ultimate compliment). Will book again!

Emily was great! This was the first time we used Rover...but it won't be our last. Thanks!

Emily was wonderful! She accommodated our last minute request graciously and set up a meet-and-greet right away. She was gentle and kind with our dog, Eva, who clearly warmed up to her very easily. She was able to coax Eva into exploring new places (something she had been very nervous about). Emily sent me updates regularly and clearly took great care of Eva. I will definitely be reaching out to her again!

Columbia grad student, dog lover

I'm currently a graduate student at Columbia University studying clinical psychology. I have a flexible schedule and just really miss having a dog since moving to the city for school. I've always had family pets growing up and thought this would be a great opportunity to get a little break from school and have some furry pals again :) I've had quite a bit of experience walking a variety of dogs, I used to dog ...

What Emily would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences, all are welcome :) It would be helpful to know a bit about the dog's personality, how they are around other people and other dogs, phobias, dietary restrictions, medications, etc. Just anything that could help me provide them with the best possible time while they're with me.

When Emily watches your pet

Unique to each family/dog preferences. I love walking through the parks and finding areas where the dogs are able to explore and sniff around. I love going to the dog parks as well if that's something the owners are comfortable with. I love giving tummy rubs, playing fetch, jogging, training them on new tricks, etc. Just having a good time with them :)
