This was my second time hiring Janice to watch my Teddy and she was just as great as the first time :) She sent updates so I knew he was in good hands. I also trust her with my puppy because I know she has a lot of experience. I will 100% reach out to Janice again!

Janice was an amazing dog / puppy sitter and I would recommend her 100% to watch your loved one. I had never used Rover before and Janice was my first. Not only did she come over for a meet and greet before my trip but she was so responsive the entire time she was watching Teddy. She completely eased my fears as this was my first time away from my puppy and made me feel so ...

Best friend for your best friend

Before my darling dog, Root Beer, passed away last year, I knew how difficult it was to find a caring, responsible person to look after him when I could not. Now that I have the opportunity to offer my love and skills to other dog parents, I'm excited to do it! I'm available for walks anytime (especially while you're away at work all day) and I'm happy to house and/or dog sit if you're ...

What Janice would like to know about your dog

When possible, I do like to have a meet and greet so you and your dog can get to know me. During that time, I'll ask about your dog's individual personality, energy level, routines and preferences. I'll also want to know any special instructions and your pooch's veterinary details.

I love all dogs, but have a preference for larger breeds. Pit bulls are my favorite! I also adore cats (especially my own, Marlowe) and am happy to take care of them as well.

When Janice watches your pet

San Francisco has amazing parks and I love to explore them with a furry friend! For the more active dogs, I like to make up obstacle courses to challenge them - weaving around trees, jumping on and off platforms, etc. Each dog is different, so I look for what delights them in particular. I do have a car, so we can also go on adventures further afield. I especially like to take dogs for hikes in the woods or to the beach for a quick swim.
