I was really impressed with the care Brooke got and the communication with Matthew. If other, sitter/walker's as goodbI look forward to using Rover in the future. I have already been recommending Rover for pet care.

When Matthew & Jacob watches your pet

We do not have any preferences in pet breeds or size but only ask to be open if you have aggressive dogs. We’re in this to provide great safe service for both your pet and ourselves. Safety is our top priority. If your pet is known to be aggressive towards other people or men I would suggest finding a different sitter best suited for that.

Because that is our only preference we do not require meet and greets for every pet but it is usually prefered to meet you and your pets before starting a stay.

We have cared for pets varying from puppies to seniors including pets with disabilities such as blindness.

House Sitting:
When house sitting we stick with your daily routine and will stay in your home offering 24 hour care until you return. We often do house sitting services together when possible so your pet will not be left alone very long while one of us may need to leave for classes or work. During our stay we will play, feed, snuggle, and care for your pet. Your mail will be brought in, light chores provided, and your home will continue to have that lived in feel. You will also receive a update about your pets day including pictures!

Drop-In Visits:
Drop in visits to your home for a minimum of thirty minutes to check on your pups or feline friends for food, change of litter, potty breaks, and play time. You will receive an update with pictures and how the drop in went.

Dog Walking:
Your dog will receive a thirty minute walk which includes pictures and updates.
