Nova had the best time with Rodney. I was nervous because this was the first time I left Nova with a sitter. Rodney was so welcoming and knowledgeable. He even taught Nova how to shake!!

Rodney was great!! Helped me with a last-minute request to walk Bear. Great notes on the Rover card, and gave Bear a cup of food when they returned, as I asked him to do. Would definitely book him again!
