Ida is fantastic! We opted for the in-house sitting for our 2 year old boxer-pit mix over a long weekend. Our sweet girl absolutely loved Ida and seemed to be so much more relaxed when we got home than when we did out of house boarding. She was respectful of our home and we couldn’t even tell she’d been there. She will definitely be home it go-to girl!

Ida is amazing! This was my first time using Rover and I’m so happy I did. I recently got married in Hawaii and was gone for 9 nights. My family was out of town as well and I wanted my 2 dogs to be able to stay home where they felt comfortable and safe. By the time I landed from my first flight, Ida had already sent pictures and an update. She continued to ...

Ida recently watched my dogs for eight days while I was on vacation. She came to my house prior to me leaving to meet my dogs. One of my dogs normally takes quite awhile to warm up to new people and she immediately attached herself to Ida! It was apparent that she is a lover of animals.

Experienced dog sitter and walker

I am more than happy to stay in your home to care for your pet(s). I do have a full-time job during the day, but am home in the evenings. Studies show that pets do better when their owners are gone if the person caring for the pet cares for them in the familiar surroundings of the pet's home. I have experience in the daily care of animals with two internships at zoos and ...

What Ida would like to know about your dog

I would prefer to know the dog's temperament and friendliness with strangers/other dogs. This is to be sure I will not put your dog in an environment that is harmful to your dog, myself, or others.

When Ida watches your pet

Walks around the neighborhood are preferred, but if there is a local dog park and your dog is friendly with other dogs, I would be happy to bring your dog there. If your pet(s) prefer home and there is a yard or a place in the house to play tug or fetch, I will do this as well. If your pet(s) prefer to lounge and watch television or movies, I am up for that as well!
