Our first experience with Rover went well. :)
Helpful and timely! Thanks for dealing with my stubborn door lock!
Rachel took great care of our animals and was very easy to communicate with. Our animals seemed to not even notice we were gone and the house was in perfect order.

I've been a Rover sitter for about three years now, but have a lifetime experience with dogs! Growing up my family was never without two dogs in the house, providing me with ample experience training, walking, and caring for dogs. I work a flexible from-home schedule so my days are very free for whatever care your pet needs!
As a dog sitter, I am dedicated ...
What Rachel would like to know about your dog
I prefer to know the owner's preferences on everything. I can cater to what the dog needs in most areas, but just want to make sure I know those needs ahead of time.
Here are questions I typically ask on meet and greets:
-What is your dog’s typical routine for food, walks, and potty breaks, and how much flexibility do they have within it?
-Where do you typically take your dog for walks? How responsive are they on the leash? How do they react to other dogs, humans, kids, and small animals?
-Is there anywhere you like to take your dog to be off-leash (dog park, etc)?
-Does your dog have any special needs, medications, food allergies, or anxieties?
-What commands does your dog already know? Are there any commands you’d like me to work on with your dog?
