RJ is a wonderful pet caregiver! I'm always nervous to leave my babies when I'm traveling, but when RJ's the one who's taking care of them I know they're in great hands. He pays attention to their schedule and he also makes sure they get enough attention and love when I'm away. With RJ, I never need to worry about them, and I always come back to find them pampered. We're lucky to have RJ ...

I’ve known Rj for over 25 years... he is kind-hearted and a true animal lover. Rj volunteers at animal shelters and animal rescue centers. He is like a brother to me and his warm heart shows through on even the darkest days. I’d trust him with my life. I give Rj my highest recommendation to work for Rover.

Watchful care, parks, & doggy-jogs!

For 8 years I raised an energetic shepherd-husky using positive operant conditioning over which time she earned a certificate as an AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC), and we successfully passed skills tests and I completed written exams to register with Pet Partners (formerly Delta Society) as a handler in their Therapy Animal Program. For over 2 and a half years I volunteered with dogs, cats, and rabbits at a municipal animal shelter, where I cared ...

What Rj would like to know about your dog

Having handled a variety of dogs, I tend to match activity with the energy level of the dog that day. Just let me know if you have one who wants to be active, or instead enjoys a slower, calmer time out. If there are any rules or conditions you call out, especially certain triggers or sensitivities, I’ll make sure to honor those and maintain control per your terms. Also, let me know if you support animal welfare nonprofit organizations and I’ll gladly consider adjusting my contributions toward them, too, as 100% of my profit made here goes to Seattle Humane Society. Cheers!

Can provide daily exercise

I’ll prioritize walks to nearby parks and through urban spaces, maintain a safe distance from other dogs and make sure to avoid coming into contact with any triggers of conflict or litter, offer enough water, find shade when it’s too hot, but overall have a fun mini-adventure outdoors. If you’re okay with letting your dog run, then I’ll offer them a healthy pace of exercise, too.
