House Sitting in Northland-Lyceum, Rochester, NY
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Lavinia is an incredibly conscientious pet sitter! This was her first time with us, and we have three dogs and four cats. One of our dogs has some health issues and needs some specialty care as well as medication. Lavinia was wonderful with her and asked plenty of questions to ensure she fully understood this pup’s care. She was 100% invested in ensuring all of our pets were well taken care of, and that she understood what they needed as well as their schedules. We received lots of pictures and updates, which really helped us to feel connected while we were away. We returned home to a clean house and happy and healthy animals. We definitely recommend Lavinia!”
“Great sitter! Excellent communication and lots of check in to keep is in the loop. Great with the pets and sent adorable pictures. A great help and highly recommended”
“Portia will do a great job taking care of your pet. She's watched our dogs overnight. She's responsible, on-time and loves to play with the dogs. She's also an experienced cat lover. They hardly knew we were gone!”
“Candace was absolutely amazing! She sent me lots of pictures and videos, left my apartment clean, and followed all of his care instructions very carefully! She even worked on some training with my pup while she was here!”
“Jennel was awesome! She followed all of the instructions! Sent pictures and videos. Was very nice and followed through with everything. Will definitely book w her in the future.”

“This is my first time using Rover. I’m quite an anxious person and wasn’t sure if I could ever be comfortable leaving my babies without family. I was so nervous and Barbara eased all of my worries! She was so kind and helpful throughout the whole process. We absolutely love her!! She sent frequent picture updates and always checked in when she had questions on how to give the best care. My dogs looked so happy the whole week I was gone. You cannot have someone better watching your animals. She even washed my sheets and took out the garbage before I got home. I definitely will be hiring her again if she’ll have us! She is amazing!!! 5/5 ?”
About: I've grown up caring for cats, rabbits and dogs! I also have experience raising chicks/chickens, and some experience caring for pigs, horses and goats. I've recently adopted a large senior dog, and have two cats (and a fish) of my own. Housesitting includes plant-care (indoor and out) as needed, trash days and mail/delivery collection. I'm in school, so M/W I'm available before noon or after 4pm. T/Th I'm available before 7am or after 2:30pm. Fridays-Sun I'm usually openly available! My priority while pet sitting is your pets! If they love walks or socializing, I'll be sure they have the best "stay-cation" while your away too! For pets that stay-in (such as cats and rabbits), play and quality time for me is key- keeping them active and distracted while parents are away is so important to me.
“I highly recommend Emma for looking after our pets. Emma is great with pets; she is conscientious and genuinely loves animals. Emma quickly gets a rapport with our animals, and figures out what motivates our pets. Emma uses this knowledge to quickly get pets to cooperate, and our dogs and cats love it when Emma comes over and flock to her as soon as she arrives. Emma's combination of empathy for our pets and her reliability and responsibility make it easy to recommend Emma to all our friends for pet care.”
About: I'm a firm believer that there are no bad dogs. I have experience with young, old, and ailing pups alike and have been with my partner in crime for the past 12 years. Happy to host cats and other household critters. Let me know if the plants need watering. I work overnights at RGH during the weekdays and spend most of my time home with my own dog Bronson. Sleeping in the morning and early afternoon dogs get walks before and after work and after I wake up in the afternoon. Pet sitting in client's homes will be entirely dependent on your needs. I'm flexible and happy to include plant and other pet care (fish, gerbils, ferrets, birds, reptiles) providing that care is minimal and may be completed in the same trip. At my home, your pup can be crated, roomed, or free to roam in my home depending on temperament and owner preference. Walks are roughly 7am, 3pm, and 10pm (or as needed) and will include a trip to Cobbs Hill park once a day, weather permitting.
“Anna has sat my dogs on multiple occasions and is awesome! I felt pretty anxious leaving them behind the first time, but Anna sent me daily pictures and updates. I felt at easing knowing that they were well taken care off. Anna was so knowledgeable and kind, she even took my high-energy dog running which she loved.”
“Emalee did a great job with our two senior dogs. One of them is an absolute handful. She took it all in stride. He was upset to see us when we got home. Emalee stayed at our house. She left it impeccable. I hope we get away again soon so Emalee can stay with the dogs again. Thank you Emalee!”
“Emily was very communicative and friendly! She took great care of our three pets and house. Our pets are very needy and require extra attention with medication and she was very attentive and gave them the best care! I will definitely use her as a sitter again!!”
“Will was great with Rupert, and was very responsive to communication”
“Veronica was exactly what we were looking for for our canine, human family. Most importantly, she took the time to get to know our canine-kind, especially our 120 pound French mastiff mix. She settled in overnight during a longer trial sitting, sent us pictures of our contented dogs--both of whom were relaxed when we returned. She also took care our cat and our backyard chickens, as well as watching over our home. We have tried a number of sitters from Rover who said they had big dog experience and could offer personal care for our big guy but had no success. We had almost given up on the service but are so glad we gave Veronica a try. We feel like we can go away for more than a day confident that our menagerie will be well cared for and loved in our absence. We will be booking with her again very soon.”
“Teri was simply wonderful. She is a fantastic dog sitter and kept my crew safe and happy while I was out of town! I came home to a clean house and couldn't have been happier!!! I am torn recommending her because I want her all to myself lol but seriously hit up Teri shes awesome!”
About: As a man with a strong love and passion for dogs, I have taken a lot of time to grow my understanding and experience working with these beautiful creatures many call our best friends! My experiences are: -Working at suburban animal hospital - years working at doggy daycare/ training facility’s - studied at animal behavior college for canine obedience training -dabbles in canine fitness - dabbles in canine holistic health and nutrition. I am currently doing pet care as a part time job but as my other endeavors of landscaping and martial arts is flexible, I would love to make a career out of my passion! When your Pets are in my care I want to make there time as fun and stress free as can be. To do that I make sure to have a full understanding of your pets behavior, triggers, fears, and possible injuries to safely modify my care to fit each individual pets needs. You tell me your home boundaries for your pets and I will make sure they are followed the same way you do when your home!
“Alex was wonderful! She took care of our two large dogs for 10 days at our house and put our minds at ease the entire time. She shared regular updates and photos and we will definitely be using her again!”
“James is wonderful with my 5 year old German Shepherd! He is willing to play fetch with her, take her for walks, or give her some extra love. He is a natural animal lover and extremely trustworthy with both dogs and cats. Quick to respond and easy to communicate with! Highly recommend James to take care of your fur babies!”
“We had Kyle stay with our two cats and our dog while we were away for a short trip and he took such wonderful care of them. One of our cats is diabetic and our dog is very needy and he was able to manage it all wonderfully. Thanks Kyle!”
“We are very happy to have found Cody to care for our dogs when we are away. He is great with the dogs and they love him! He stayed with them in our home and took great care of everything. We got updates and pictures daily which made us feel connected to our dogs even though being miles away! We will have Cody caring for our dogs many more times in the future and we highly recommend him for your pets as well!”
