Jessica took care of my dog Iommi for a long weekend while I traveled out of state for my brother's wedding. It was my first time leaving Iommi and Jessica was the perfect person to leave her with. I was admittedly anxious about leaving Iommi for the first time, but as soon as I arrived the morning of drop-off Jessica made me feel 100% at ease. She took care of Iommi like she was her own and I know Iommi had a great time staying with Jessica and her family and playing with her dog Rip. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for care for their pet! I will definitely be booking with Jessica again!

I could tell my dog was so happy during her stay and she returned to us so tired from playing all day. Ashley is great at communicating, treated my dog as her own, and her dogs are so friendly!

Justin was great watching our dog Chase for a week! He added all the supplements into our dogs food daily, gave him 1:1 time, let him play everywhere (in his home and the backyard,) and sent us daily update photos and videos of Chase! When we first met Justin he asked appropriate questions about Chase and was very welcoming to us and Chase. We are extremely happy to have someone we completely trust to take care of Chase in the future!

This was our first rover experience and I don’t think we could have asked for a better one. Ashly took great care of snoopy and sent me some cute pictures as well. He had so much fun playing with the other dogs. We will definitely be back!

Lucia was so kind to Winnie and send us many photos of her dogs being so kind to my dog. I can tell Winnie had a blast!!! On top of taking great care of our dog, Lucia was extremely responsive and flexible with her schedule. She was able to watch our dog on last minute notice and she helped us out when our flight was missed! A great sitter, our family highly recommends!!

I’m extremely pleased with the care provided by Megan when she took care of my 2 dogs for 6 days/5 nights while I was out of state on vacation. I had never left them that long with anyone before, and one of mine (Callie) is very attached to me and has some separation anxiety. But my fears were put to rest by Megan’s kind and reassuring manner when we first met and even more so when she sent me updates and several pictures every day to let me know how my pups were doing. She let me know my 2 pups were getting along well with her 2 little dogs, and the pictures reinforced they were making themselves at home. I really appreciated that she has a large fenced in yard for the dogs since mine are used to that. I will definitely use Megan again and am so relieved to know I can leave my dogs with her and they will be well cared for. She is awesome! I highly recommend her.

Loki LOVED his stay with Ashley , Oziel and their sweet dogs while we were out of town. They sent his pictures and updates regularly which kept me tension free & relieved throughout my trip. Loki enjoyed his stay much , that he was sad leaving his 2 new dog friends while coming back home ?. I would blindly recommend them to all fur babies parents. Loki is already waiting for his next trip with them.

I moved here from TN a month ago and had a pretty cushy situation there with my dog sitter and was hoping to find the same. It seems like I have. For reasonable prices and the fact she has two fairly active dogs for my high energy Dox to play with, he was very happy from his overnight stay there and I'll definitely be taking him back. Nothing like peace of mind for pet parents!

About: I've grown up around dogs and have a passion for animals. I have succeeded in training my current puppy in multiple commands and managed to have him fully housebroken by the age of 4 months. I typically work from home Mondays and Fridays and can check on pets at regular intervals. Occasionally I may run 1-2 hour long errands while the dogs play in the back yard. My current dog is a loving 4 month old Great Pyrenees/GSD mix who has a wonderful temperament and is a perfect early socialization experience for nervous dogs. There is a decent-sized fenced in yard for dogs to run around in complete with a plastic kiddie pool to help cool off on Sunny days. While inside the dogs will be regulated to the kitchen and living areas.

My Lola had a blast staying with Lisa! She sent many pictures and updates during her stay and was very responsive. Plenty of toys and comfy places for a pup to enjoy in the household and a safe fenced in yard. Would definitely recommend!
