“Sean was SO GREAT with Walter. I loved that he has other dogs that Walter could play with, and he was warm and inviting and very communicative. Walter had a ball. We will use him again for sure! GREAT dog sitter!!”
Lauren & Jerek P.
“Great sitters with amazing flexibility! I will definitely be using them again :)”
“Thank you again for your great care of my dear dog Xavier! I am so fortunate to have you available on my route to UMWest Hospital. It has made my return to work stress free--at least as far as the dog is concerned.”
“I was travelling from Maryland to Grand Rapids for a weekend with our puppy. I waited too long to book for doggie day care, so all the commercial facilities were booked. We had mixed feelings about using Rover, based on our last two experiences, hence were initially not inclined on using the Rover. With no options available; we started contacting folks at Rover without much luck. Thankfully we were able to connect with Evvia, and she took our dog in. Everything happens for a reason, and we were so glad to have found Evvia in Rover. Next time we are in Grad Rapids, we know exactly whom to contact. Based on our past Rover experience, either the Rover family hosting our dog would be very good with communications; but the dog was very hesitant to return back the next day. Or they would not only be bad with communication, but the dog wanted to run out of that place. In both of those instances, their reviews were top notch. Hence, our initial reluctance with Rover. But with Evvia, she was superb with communications, very attentive to details, and a true dog lover. She allowed the dogs to be dogs, let them play hard and have fun, but correct when needed. At the end of the day, she has bathing service available so the dogs can come home and cuddle, and be fast asleep. She sent out the daily report, including the miles walked. The biggest test was what my dog would do the next day; and he pulled me to her house, and then pulled her inside to play. I wish she was in Maryland, close to where we live.”
“This was our first time leaving our dog (Fitz) with anyone, so wasn't sure how it was going to go. Joshua made us feel very comfortable. He took great care of Fitz and updated us throughout the day!”
Chris & Vashti V.
“Chris was great! Got sent multiple pictures and videos and messages throughout the visit about my dog. He was great on being flexible with us and having to adjust times. We got a happy and tired doggy at the end of the day. Would use him again in a heartbeat.”
“Kourtney was a life saver! It was my first time traveling with my 1.5 year old Yellow Lab staying in a hotel. Any time I left the room she would bark non stop due to anxiety. Kourtney came to the rescue with her quick response to my messages. She was able to watch Ada the next day! Ada is a cautious dog but she warmed up to Kourtney in no time and she had a blast! Instead of a day in a hotel room, she spend it with a true dog loving person and even a trip to the local dog park! Kourtney was outstanding! I cannot be more grateful”
“Mara is a an awesome dog mommy. When I first met Mara, she told me she was a single mom. I assumed she had a child. Turns out she did, a fur-child! Mara's dogs are very well behaved and play very well together. They also get along well with my dogs and are very well manured. Not only is Mara a great mom, she is also an advocate for homeless and neglected pets. She has helped raise thousands of dollars for our local rescues and shelters and has volunteered countless hours. Anyone would be lucky to dog sit for Mara. She is fun and easy going and her dogs are adorable!”
“We are so lucky to have found Dana for our pup! She takes such good care of him, and her pup and mine are best buds. She is very flexible and understanding ,and knows dogs inside out.”
“Ashley is super friendly and made us feel very safe leaving our puppy in her care. Her huskies are patient play partners and helped our pup start to learn some manners around adult dogs. I wasn’t ever worried she’d push them too far. Ashley was very flexible and we would happily book with her again when the need arises.”
“Matilda had a great time relaxing with Lindsay and Beesley. She gave ample updates as the day progressed and Matilda was a little depressed by the time she got home.”
“I’ve been having my puppy stay with Daniel and his wife periodically throughout the week for the past month. First and foremost, Daniel is very flexible and understanding of my sometimes unpredictable work schedule. Working in the health field, it’s comforting knowing that Hugo will be taken care of even if my days are longer than expected. There was one instance where I ended up working well into the night and Daniel was able to keep Hugo overnight. A huge help! Second, I enjoy the fact that Hugo is able to play with other dogs and interact with their dog parents throughout the day. I think this gives him good interaction and good socialization to help him as he gets older. Finally, Hugo is always so excited to see Daniel in the morning! This makes me feel like Hugo is having fun and is getting good attention while at doggy daycare. It’s very comforting knowing that Hugo has such a good place to spend his days when I’m at work.”
Tricia & Adam O.
“Tricia was great, took the pup on a great walk! Hope we can coordinate further”
“Wow, just fantastic! My dog Norman was super well taken care of. Communication was excellent. Nice place with a fantastic park right across street. Highly recommend! A+++++”
“Maddie has watched my dogs on a few different occasions while I was on vacation. She stayed at my house and took excellent care of them! She even sent updates along with pictures so I could see how they were doing. My dogs absolutely loved her! If I need pet sitting in the future Maddie will be the first one I contact!”
“Callie was great with our 10 week-old puppy! This was the first time we left our dog with anyone and we felt like our pup was in such great hands. Callie sent us updates throughout the day along which kept our minds at ease that our dog was safe and well taken care of. We will definitely being using Callie's day care service again =)”
“First time using Rover, and had a great experience with Sophie. Very responsive in communicating, and easy to coordinate drop-off and pick-up. Elsa was pooped at the end of the day, so she must’ve enjoyed lots of play time. Would highly recommend Sophie for your day care needs.”
About: I’ve taken care of dogs throughout my entire life and love the companionship animals bring. I have a 10 month old Siberian Husky that I’ve been training myself and I would love to help your animal become their best self as well. Every animal deserves that extra effort of love and attention and thats what your pet will be getting at my home. I currently work a hybrid schedule but can arrange work at home when needed. I have a lot of availability for quick walks and overnight help. I have a 3/4 fenced in yard, unfortunately the driveway does not have a barricade. However I have a line in the backyard for your pups to get fresh air when needed! Inside the house, there’s lots of room for play and activity. Eating and sleeping area’s are clean and pup ready!
