TJ was incredible to say the least. He not only was able to work on short notice and for reasonable pay, but he was able to adapt to our dog Fender. Fender has challenges, amd TJ was patient, loving and respectful. Not only did he follow the careful instruction left for him perfectly, he went above and beyond. He sent us pictures of the two of them daily, gave us daily updates, respected our home and overall was just a super cool guy for the duration of our vacation. I can't reccomend him enough, and I will absolutely be requesting his services for our next vacation or leave of any kind. THANK YOU TJ!

Cassandra was really great! Kiddo gave her a hard time, but she was a total trooper. She preserved through an unimpressed senior cat’s antics to give Kiddo her daily meds. Cassandra kept me regularly updated and sent lots of photos and videos. She went above and beyond by helping with my plants, getting the mail, and making sure everything was good on the home front while I was away for two weeks. Would love to have her care for Kiddo in the future! And highly recommend her to other pet parents, including senior pets or pets requiring daily meds!

Meric was awesome with my little Morty. It’s the first time I used a dog sitter and Morty is pretty timid around strangers, but he warmed right up to Meric. Meric was respectful of my home and sent updates throughout the day - thanks Meric!

My original pet sitter canceled on me and I’m so glad she did! Because of that, I got to work with Heather, who was so kind, communicative and professional. This was my first experience using Rover and Heather made me feel really secure about leaving Teddy at home while I traveled for work. I know he was so much happier with her than he would have been in a boarding situation. I hope to work with Heather again in the future.

I cannot recommend Michael enough as a dog sitter. We have a difficult dog (separation anxiety, possessiveness, protectiveness). We love him so much but can be hard to integrate people into his inner circle. Michael was so easy for Freddy to love and Freddy took to him immediately. I don’t trust many people with Freddy’s care but I wholeheartedly trust Michael. I also really appreciate how respective and attentive Michael was with Freddy needs. Before the first time babysitting, Michael and k chatted on the phone for Almost an hour. He truly understands and love dogs and that’s hard to find! One of the best dog sitters we’ve ever met. Thank you Michael!!!

Naomi made sure that my dog was well taken care of and let me know how things were going throughout her stay. I could tell when I got back that he was taken care of because it seemed like he hardly missed me lol. Highly recommend her!

Nia has done an amazing job with my cat and my reactive dog! Usually I am nervous about someone other than me walking my dog because of how unpredictable he can be, but I was not worried at all with Nia given her experience. She also sent lots of photos, which was very appreciated and I could tell my pets were having a lot of fun and keeping active with her!

Jordyn did a great job taking care of my 3 dogs over the past weekend, one of whom was super high energy and not easy to handle. She left our place spotless and listened to all of my (overly) detailed instructions, and communicated thoroughly and promptly. We are excited to have her care for our dogs again! TY Jordyn :)

Natalie is wonderful. Our dog is shy with new people and can be challenging to deal with at home (she chews on everything!) but Natalie took the time for her to get comfortable and dealt with her behavioral issues like a pro. She really went above and beyond, picking up some new enrichment toys and teaching our puppy new tricks! Communication was excellent. We would definitely book Natalie again.
