Melina is fantastic! She stayed with my 2 pups, Rudy and Rondo, for 4 days while I was on a business trip. I received multiple pictures and updates that put me at ease during my travels. I am an anxious traveler and I was very comfortable knowing she was taking such good care of my sweet dogs. I highly recommend her for walks, overnight stays and pet care overall. Thank you for everything. ❤️??

This was my first time using Rover and I was a little nervous because I didn’t know what to expect, and Madeline was phenomenal. My dog, Swiffy, loved her immediately and she sent me thorough updates of their time together which really helped put me at ease and I was able to enjoy my event knowing my dog was being well taken care of. I would highly recommend her.

Wow, where do I start? Jana is such a great sitter, super communicative and anticipates my cats and my needs before I even ask them. She really sees my cats unique personalities, and I can tell from the photos she shared that they really trust her. She got my shyer cat who typically hides for days to sit with her on the very first day! She left my house sparkling clean. I trust Jana completely.

There aren’t enough words to express just how attentive and amazing Quishu is: Positive, dynamic personality with an ability to get zen when needed. She’s the kind of personality our beagles need. She followed all our doggie care and home instructions, it was such peace of mind. She sent frequent photos and videos which showed us that our adopted and often timid beagles trusted her, felt safe with her and were actually being their true goof ball selves. Most sitters think they’ll try to “fix” their issues which never works and creates a tense dynamic, but Qishu didn’t appear to judge us for all our instructions and expectations. She respected our requested level of care and the beagles and her bonded. Thank you Qishu!!

Spirit went above and beyond for me and my pup at the very last minute. Our original sitter had to cancel on us merely days before my partner and I left to go on a 10 day vacation so I started to message Rover sitters in a panic until I stumbled upon Spirits profile. Spirit came over the very next day for a meet and greet and the rest is history. My old pittie is a huge couch potato and just wants to snuggle, and she warmed up to Spirit within seconds. Spirit has some kind of superpower with animals and it shows. Between taking care of her, catering to her senior doggy needs, feeding her with her special diet, and overall loving Sandy, my pup is completely smitten with Spirit. She’s 100% my go-to sitter from now on! Everyone should book with Spirit for wonderful care for their sweet animal children :)

Sam house and pet sat for us when our regular dog sitter was no longer available. We have one pup who is very skittish and we have not had good luck leaving her. She loved Sam immediately! Sam sent us pictures of daily walks, kept our home beautifully, and baked us cookies on our return. I cannot recommend him enough. Fabulous!

Lauren was excellent! She took great care of our two dogs for 4 days and shared plenty of updates with us the whole time, which we really appreciated. She spent a lot of quality time with them just hanging out, and gave our high energy pup lots of ball time to tire her out. We definitely recommend her!

I would highly recommend my daughter Kelly to care for your family pet. She would make an outstanding pet sitter/walker because she is a true animal lover at heart! She has been around family pets since she was five years old. She loved walking and caring for our own dogs and later with a litter of puppies. In addition, when Kelly was in High School she took a Vet Tech class for a year and even thought about being a Veterinarian. During the summer breaks from High School, Kelly volunteered numerous hours at the local Humane Society. She walked dogs, worked with kittens and cats, and cleaned the animal pens. On numerous occasions she has been called upon by friends and co-workers to care and pet sit for their families while they or out of town or on vacation. Kelly would be an outstanding choice to care for your family pet. Sincerely, Kim M.

My dog is usually wary around strangers, and he was happily jumping up on Molly the first time he met her! I felt completely secure leaving him in her calm, capable care for almost 2 weeks. Molly was wonderfully communicative throughout the entire process, including sending photo and video updates. She also had to deal with unexpected crate rest the last three days when my dog happened to have a flare up of a condition during her stay. She dealt with taking him to the emergency vet with incredible grace and compassion, stayed with him as much as she possibly could and kept me abreast of the situation. She also took beautiful care of my home. I would highly recommend her!

Katie was amazing with my dogs. One had had a dental 24 hours before and needed supervision and meds. She was also with them over 4th of July, and as you other dog pawrents know, it’s a scary time to be away from your pups. After meeting Katie briefly prior to the visit I felt so safe leaving them in her care. She left the place clean and well taken care of. Kind, conscientious, trustworthy and fabulous with dogs!

Christine is a great sitter. Remi got stitches on his foot a week before Christine's visit, and his exercise still needs to restricted. Christine was great at ensuring Remi's exercise was restricted while also finding ways to play games and keep him engaged. It's obvious Remi had a great time with her. I trust my dog is in good care when he's with Christine.

We were so happy that Alyssa was available to watch our cat and house sit! She is super friendly and she clearly communicated with us during our time away. We got regular updates on our kitty and when we returned to our house it was neat and tidy. We would definitely book her again!
