This was my second time using Maureen to watch my 2 white German Shepherds over a weekend. Maureen did a great job getting my youngest pup (who is fearful & can sometimes be quite intimidating) to warm up to her. Bella even played ball with Maureen! I received text updates, pictures and even a video sent by Maureen at each of the 2 visits per day for 4 days. Maureen's messages definitely helped calm the ...
Maureen is wonderful! My dog absolutely adores her and I feel completely comfortable leaving him in her care. You can tell she has a real connection and love for animals. I’m so glad I found her through Rover!

In those cases I would ask for a time to come get to know the dog with the owner around, before the dog is left in my care.
