Heather was terrific - my 2 cats + my sister's cat (3 total!) were all very happy when I returned from my multi-day Thanksgiving trip! Heather sent me photos each day - and even my most shy cat came out to say hi to Heather - which speaks volumes because she doesn't easily trust. My house was in great shape and most importantly, the litter boxes were tidy and that's what made the cats so comfortable! Thank you Heather ...

Heather provided another great visit with my dog. I am always happy to have her in my home when I am away.

Friendly & Professional Pet Lover

I am a lifetime pet owner and would love to take care of your pet while you're away. I've taken care of cats, dogs, lizards, fish, and I'm comfortable with just about any critter. I understand that pets are members of the family and that it makes many pets feel more comfortable to be cared for in their own homes, and I'm willing to travel in the DC metro area to take care of your ...

-Allergies (if applicable)

When Heather watches your pet

I know that leaving your pup with someone else can be challenging, and you want to know that your pup will be taken care of while you're away. I will do everything I can to make sure you have peace of mind while you're away from home, sending updates on your pet regularly (including photos). I understand that every pet has different needs, and I make it a point to accommodate different needs and restrictions, as well as making sure that your pet receives the exercise he/she needs.

Before booking a stay, I would like to chat with you to discuss your pet's needs and any unique dietary restrictions, medications, or exercise needs. I will make a list of these things and schedule any times needed for walks, meals, or medicines. This will be my guide for taking care of your pet while you're away.

Rover also provides 24/7 emergency assistance. While I hope we'll never need that, it's always a part of what I offer and I take advantage of this additional assistance as necessary.
