This was our first dog sitting experience with Rover.com and Marita was fantastic!!!!
She kept us up to date with every aspect of our German Shepherd's care & activities. He can get anxious with our absence but Marita was incredible in reading this and responding with walks and attention. We were amazed with the attention she gave our GS and her attention to detail.

I have known Marita for many years and can tell you, your furry best friend will be in good hands with her. She LOVES animals and is great with both dogs and cats. Marita is reliable, trustworthy and has a great positive attitude.
