Tess was awesome! We hired her to do two 30-min walks on a weekend afternoon and she was great. Extremely communicative and on top of what she was doing. One the first walk, they got caught in a rain storm and had the wherewithal to message me to ask for a towel rather than just letting our dog air dry in the house. The second walk was hot and muggy and it was great to ...

Tess is absolutely fabulous. My overall experience was wonderful. Her dog is super friendly and she took care of my Dane just like I would have. I was very impressed with rover and Tess, as this was my first experience using the app.

What Tess would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences or breeds I will not take. I currently own a Frenchie, so I am very familiar with the special needs of flat-faced dogs.
