Jenevieve totally saved our vacation! I had originally hired another Rover sitter to drop in on our dog while we were on vacation. The other sitter didn't show up for 2 visits. Luckily I was able to book super last minute with Jenevieve and she is awesome! She was always there on time to take care of my dog. He is 15 and takes heart meds, so it's important that he gets them twice a day. She seemed to really care for my dog and sent pictures every visit. I was totally impressed with her attention to his care. If you are looking for a great sitter, look no further!

Monica was great! On time, with the time we had discussed, and very thorough descriptions of her visits. It puts me at ease when I leave my dog and know she’s being spoiled and taken care of. I will definitely be using her service again!

It seemed scary having someone we don’t know come into our home to take care of our kitty, but Lisa put those worries to rest! She was very sweet and gentle with our little Dexter who is always wary of new people. He grew a liking to her almost immediately and animals usually know when someone is kind and trustworthy. Couldn’t be happier with the experience. We will definitely be asking her to look after him again. 😺

What can I say about tori but wow… she did such an amazing job with our cats and spent tons of extra time with them. Sent us tons of updates and pictures. Truthfully, if you need someone to watch a pet or stop by, someone who truly has a kinship with animals, tori is the one to go with. Furthermore, she’s a good person and we felt secure with her entering and leaving our house. We will exclusively use her from now on and you should too. We don’t just give good reviews, they must be earned… and she did that. Aces all the way…

Kayla was great! She did an awesome job communicating when she was stopping by to feed our cat, both through the arrival/leaving notification via Rover and by sending a message with pics. I would strongly recommend her :)

Brad was great for my 2 dogs! One older, one a pup! His communication was timely and continuous. It was so nice to check the “card” to know what happened during his visits. He sent the best pictures, too! I will definitely use Brad again!

Brittany took care of Kesha for 4 days while I was away, and I couldn't wish for the better person to take care of my cat! From the very first intro visit I knew she was a true professional and just the right person, she gave Kesha space and accomodated her mood and energy each day. It was my first time using Rover and she explained in detail what she will be doing and how she is doing the visits. It was easy to trust her and be sure my cat will be taken care of! She provided reports after each visit with pictures, which was soooo helpful and needed. I'm glad I found Brittany and hope she will be available every time when I travel! Brittany, Kesha and I so appreciate you!

Chelsie quickly became our regular cat sitter. From our first meet and greet and booking with her, we knew she was the one to look after our fur babies! We have booked with her several times and she is always reliable, accomodating, quick to respond, sends pictures and updates, and gives our cats much needed attention and play while we are away. We highly recommend her!!!

Our cats are still warming up to the idea of people and tend to hide (even from us on some days), but Nichole did her best to win them over anyway. It gave me great peace of mind to know the person checking on them was so attentive, even if the cats themselves weren't enthusiastic about a new friend. Thanks so much!

Jessica worked as an employee of mine at a dog boarding facility. She was easily one of my most reliable and trusted employees. She loves the dogs so much, pays attention to details and noticed of anything was off like not drinking water or eating well. I would trust her to care for my pets and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Kendra was absolutely perfect! We had her check on our cat while we were gone for a week. Kendra sent daily photos, as well as an update on her food, water, and demeanor that day! She even watered my plants for me! Highly recommend, and we'll definitely use her again in the future!
