As always, Monica was so great with our dogs while we were away on our honeymoon. She went above and beyond for us—even watering an indoor plant for us, and offering to add on an impromptu drop in visit because of an impending tornado warning/thunder storm! Her notes were specific and in depth. Our dogs clearly love her. We have two rovers we sincerely trust, and she is one of them! Thanks Monica!

My dogs and cat were in such good hands. Highly recommend him. Will use again and again. Was in another country and he was so patient with my payment issue. I didn’t have to worry even at 3700 miles away.

Troy was awesome with Asher!! Left very detailed feedback, and got him some much needed exercise during the day while I'm gone. Asher was very tired after, which is the goal! I have no complaints and would recommend to anyone looking to supplement some socialization and exercise for their pets.

Lisa, was great with my three cats. I have a almost 15 yr old male cat that has been very skittish all his life. Most pet sitters have never even gotten him out to eat his can food but Lisa not only got him out to eat but also got his medicine on his ears that he has to have twice a day every day for hypothyroidism. Knowing that he was taken care while my husband and I were out of town attending our daughters wedding was a hugh blessing. Thanks again Lisa.

I would recommend Natasha for any animal needs. She did great with my two senior cats. They were well fed, relaxed, and happy when we returned from our trip. She was an excellent communicator, shared photos throughout, and consistent with her visits. I will definitely use her again!

Ky has watched my dog several times throughout the years. She recently joined Rover, but I couldn't recommend her enough. She is very kind and attentive towards my dog, and my dog warmed up to her very quickly. She also has great communication and provides updates on how the stay is going. You can tell she loves doing her job.

This is the 3rd time we hired Jessica to care for our two cats - one that needs insulin shots. She was once again awesome. She made sure to arrive 12 hours a part twice a day. Jessica assured me that out cat with diabetes ate the required amount before giving her an injection and also takes the time to give them both love and attention . She is the best!

Ezequiel did drop in visits for my two dogs while I was away for a few days. He has great communication. He was very punctual. He was willing to accommodate my dog who is quite skittish, using my special leash and gate set ups to ensure she did not escape. My Corgi enjoyed him right away. Ezequiel did a great job feeding my dogs who have sensitives, allergies, and not the easiest feeding routine. He offered to wipe the dogs off when they came inside as it was raining nearly the entire time. Would recommend!

I left my pup with Elizabeth for 10 days. I loved getting updates on how he was doing, including pictures, multiple times a day. Elizabeth is educated and great with all animals. I had no doubt that Ryder (my dog) would enjoy his time there with all the others dogs. Upon return, Ryder was happy and exhausted! Just the way I’d expect him to be. I will definitely be having Elizabeth watch Ryder again.

Michelle was great from beginning to end! Prompt response when originally requested, good past reviews, she showed up on time to initially meet Gigi before my trip, and while I was on my trip I had piece of kind that she was regularly checking on her, with updates and photos to go along with her check-ins. Much appreciated! Will keep in mind for future requests.

I got to see Jenna work professionally with dogs when we were roommates in college. She loves taking care of them and is very patient and kind. She's one of the most responsible people I know and I'd trust her with my pets in a heartbeat. I can't recommend her enough!
