Marissa is a gem. We have used the services of several Rover sitters, and she's clearly the best. She's responsible, loves dogs, communicates well and handles special situations calmly and professionally. While we were in the high desert for our daughter's wedding, our German shepherd developed diarrhea, and Marissa followed our instructions to a tee, alleviating the problem and putting our minds at ease. We will definitely book her again the next time we travel.

Marissa was incredible with my special needs dog, Louie, over the holidays. She was always prompt and consistent for him. She was very responsive and honest with me about how he was doing and even spent extra time with him when he was stressed, which eased my anxieties. She administered his medication and kept up with his energy during playtime. I got some amazing photos from her, too! This was a long trip for me ...

Marissa went above and beyond to take care of my 2 cats over Christmas. She even brought the cats some balls and treats. Marissa sent regular updates throughout the week, including great photos! There was an incident where my tree fell over and the ornaments broke. Marissa contacted me right away and was able to clean up the mess. She was very patient and did some additional clean up. Highly recommend!

When Marissa watches your pet

I love taking my dog friends to walks in the park and to the beach.
Along with this, I enjoy going on little adventures with my pup friends. Walking around new little towns, new hiking trials, etc. is something to be expected if you are comfortable with that!
You also can't go wrong with lounging around, cuddling and playing with favorite toys at home!
