“Candice is so wonderful, kind, and respectful! She regularly helps me with my dog during the week while I am at work. I have a somewhat strict training protocol I want to follow with my dog, and Candice is respectful of it. She is experienced with dogs and quickly learned the training steps! She is reliable and very communicative. I don’t worry about my pup at all when he is in Candice’s care!”
“Terry was excellent! He walked my dog while I was out of town and his punctuality and communication put me at ease. The photo updates were much appreciated. I will definitely work with Terry again without hesitation.”
“Rubi is one of the most responsible people I know. She loves animals and will do amazing job! She is detail oriented and will always make sure things are done correctly.”
“Sherry has watched our three cats many times, and each time she treats them with the love and care that we would! She is great at giving them a little love and attention when she comes to feed them and scoop their boxes. She reads and follows the directions we leave and makes sure the cats receive the care they need to have continuity in their routine. She is communicative before and during the time she takes care of them, and I especially love when she sends photos of them from a visit.”
“Morgan loves all animals. She will treat your pets kindly and will care for them faithfully. Just like a favorite babysitter, your pet will look forward to spending time with Morgan.”
“Paula-Yuan G. Is communicative, warm, and proactive. I got several photos of their visit together which gave me a story of my pups mood throughout, very reassuring. Reading about Paula-Yuan’s own experience with reactive pups is an insight to how confidently and gently my reactive pup would be approached. More than satisfied with Paula-Yuan’s service and will seek them out again.”
“I would highly recommend Jennifer as a dog walker on Rover.com. As my older sister, she has been so affectionate to our dog, Sunshine, giving her so much love and care. With Jennifer, your pets will receive the same love and attention, and you can trust that she will keep your furry family members safe and happy! Jennifer's love for animals will make her the perfect choice for caring for your pets.”
About: I've taken care of foster dogs and cats off and on since college 20 years ago in addition to pet sitting for friends and neighbors. I have extra experience with senior and under-socialized cats. I primarily work as a personal trainer in San Francisco a few mornings a week and often have extra free time in the afternoons, evenings and when clients travel. I can't think of a better use of free time than spending it with dogs and cats while making sure they get the care they need. I love to travel so I know what a huge relief it is to have my pets well taken care of when I'm away. I know routines are very important and comforting to most animals and therefore I will always strive to follow given instructions as closely as possible. I will provide a recap of each visit including photos unless owners opt out.
About: I grew up with dogs and cats, and my wife and I are currently raising a puppy along with our cat. We have taken her through multiple training classes, and it's been amazing to watch her learn, and I've learned right along with her! I would be happy to take your four-legged family member for a walk. Currently I have a flexible schedule, and make time to go for walks in the middle of the day. I take my puppy on walks every day, and I would be happy to walk yours alone or if they want a dog friend. I try to walk my dog in a wide variety of environments to get her comfortable. We walk along busier streets, quiet neighborhoods, parks, and along Lake Merritt. She is very social, and loves to say hi to people and other dogs. Safety is very important to me, and I would be happy to walk your dog based on their comfort with people and other dogs.
“Alexis was great and made themself available at short notice. Alexis was responsive, communicated effectively and was attentive to our dogs needs. Alexis made me feel at ease knowing my doggo was being cared for. I would highly recommend Alexis to anyone with animal care needs!”
About: I have provided care for all pets, from bearded dragons to litters of kittens, since I was 12. Feel free to rely on me to give you peace of mind by caring for your home and pets while you’re away. I’m currently working remotely, so I can be at your pet’s beck and call at any time of the day/night. I am free any day of the week and weekend! I have a fenced in yard for playtime and a cozy home for cuddles for your furry friend. I can also adapt to any environment and would be happy to come watch your pet in the comfort of their home.
“I love Emi and most importantly so does my dog Potter. She has been so reliable and communicative. My dog is more timid and doesn’t always warm up to people but Emi has cultivated trust with him and he is thrilled to see her. I highly recommend her. Professional. Trust worthy. 100% will use again.”
About: I’ve had dogs all my life, with experience in dealing with puppies all the way to senior dogs. I've trained my own dog, Maggie :) as well as my family dogs. I have experience taking care of dogs with behavioral issues and aggression and am well aware of body language cues. I believe only in positive reinforcement and reading when a dog is not giving consent to be pet or approached. I also have experience with administering medication orally. I really love cats as well! I have experience sitting for cats with medications and dietary restrictions as well as having roommates with cats. My hours are flexible so we can work together to make things work best for you and your pets. I’m currently on a hybrid work situation, so I can be available most days of the week. I go in to work Mondays but am available before 8am and after 6pm depending on your location. Just let me know what you need and we can figure it out! I’m good with leash training, I can run or walk dogs. I love to help with different command trainings, and use only positive reinforcement when on walks. For home visits, I can follow any directions needed for the dogs or cats, including required medications. I am careful and attentive about locking doors and following instructions.
“Patrick is an awesome pet sitter! He is availability is flexible - he's willing to come early or late so that your pet gets timely attention while you are away. Patrick is good with older pets (my cat is 21!) as well as young animals and is a natural with them-my cat came right up to him the first time they met. He also sent me some sweet photos so i could see how she was doing. I recommend him without hesitation. I came home to a very happy critter!”
“Kaitlin checked in on our two cats while we were away for three weeks. She played with our very active cat and tired him out enough that he didn't tear up anything around the house. She was also able to entice our other very nervous kitty out to play. The cats were perfectly set with food, water, and litter the whole time she was taking care of them. She even indulged our active kitty on a walk, which we have never trusted a pet sitter to do before. She managed to keep him safe and occupied while he sniffed around the neighborhood and climbed trees. She sent us some very cute pictures of their adventure. Kaitlin has also been working in vet medicine for several years. Our cats luckily did not have any health problems while she was taking care of them, but we felt comfortable leaving them with her if something did come up. We also asked her some vet questions we had been wondering about and she had very helpful answers. Overall, she went above and beyond taking care of our cats.”
“Shelly was available right away to walk my dog while I was stuck at work. She responded quickly to me and took care of my dog really well. I highly recommend Shelly!”
Jonathan & Chiel R.
“These two are so flexible, accommodating, thoughtful and actually take our pup on LENGTHY walks so she gets the exercise she needs! They are her favorite Rover walkers by far :) look no further for yours!”
“Michelle was amazing! Her communication was superb. She was quick to respond and made me feel really comfortable that my dog was in her hands. 100% using Michelle again!”
“Liz has cared for my dog, Luna, many times and is absolutely wonderful with her. I can’t recommend Liz enough - I would highly recommend her to care for your pup. I have always found her to be really detailed about understanding each animal and very capable of catering to Luna’s specific needs. She is able to form a strong connection and meet Luna where she’s at. She’s great at incorporating lots of training and lots of love into her interactions with dogs. Your dog is guaranteed a safe and cuddle-heavy environment with Liz!”
“Liam has such a great energy around dogs! They’re immediately comfortable in his presence (including my large dog who can be very uncomfortable around new people) and he clearly has as much fun playing and spending quality time with dogs as they have with him. I would highly recommend his services!”
