“ Dominique is a gifted animal-caregiver who takes extra special care of our dog Harley. She is dependable in her work, and loving in her interactions with our dog. We trust Dominique to walk our dog and have had her stay overnight with Harley when we have gone out of town. She is a trustworthy person and our dog's best friend!”
“Hunter has been an absolute blessing! Bubbles (my dog) loves Hunter and does a happy dance every time she sees him. He is clean, reliable, trustworthy and will update me when I’m out of town which is always comforting. I don’t know what we would do without him. Even when he lived on a property with well over ten dogs and puppies he still gave proper attention to my sweet girl and sent lots of pictures.”
“Our dogs love their walks with Lauren!”
About: I have one dog and bird that I take care of with my family. A Newfoundland and African Grey parrot in my household. I make sure they can kept safe, healthy and loved, as for will I with your own animals. I can work usually Tuesday-Friday, weekends + Monday can be extremely busy for me in my personal life. 7 am to 7 pm, unless overnight to look after and take care for. Your pup's comfort and safety are my top priority. Plenty of walks, feeding, play time etc will be fulfilled. I can adapt to their routine in an instant for their comfortable familiarity.
About: I’ve been taking care of dogs and cats since I was real little maybe around 10 years old. From walking, sitting, feeding, and playing. I have about 6 months of senior care… I’m currently unemployed. So I’m available all throughout the weekday and weekends at any time you guys will need me. I’m looking into this being full time work. I have a fenced yard and 1 friendly black lab and 3 adorable cats to keep your fur baby company. If your baby needs to be crated I can do that.
“Kaitlyn has been watching my pets, including my dogs and cat, for years now. She has always done a wonderful job. I can’t express how much I recommend Kaitlyn as a pet caregiver.”
“For Megan, a dog isn’t just a pet. It is part of the family. She is gentle and caring but firm with rules. So much better than boarding my dog because she takes away the anxiety of being in a kennel. My dog Max loves her!”
“My dog Ginger loves when Alison comes to visit. Ginger can be a challenge and oftentimes does not do great in new environments and has some anxiety. I feel completely confident in having Ginger stay with Alison. Alison is always patient and positive with her and enjoys taking her out for walks and investigating in our large yard. Ginger is a big snuggle bug and I really enjoy getting pictures of the two of them curled up on the sofa together enjoying quiet time. Knowing that Ginger is being looked after and loved has made it possible for me to take vacations without worrying that she's locked in a crate or being ignored. Alison is always flexible and puts the needs of the pet first and foremost. It is so reassuring to know that Ginger is getting the care and interaction she deserves and that allows me to not feel guilty or worry when I'm not with her. I am a true helicopter pet mom and won't just leave Ginger with anyone. Alison also took care of my previous dog Molly as well and when she passed, Alison was right there to feel the feels with me. Alison also has pets of her own and she could understand what I was going through and that meant so much to me.”
“Leah grew up with animals and had a great live for them. She cares so well for our dogs, cats, birds and even the chickens and goats. I always feel good knowing that our little menagerie is under her care!”
“Meaghan is wonderful with animals of all sizes. We have 3 dogs weighing from 5lbs to 95lbs and she finds an individualized way of connecting with each of them. From cuddles on the couch to long walks and trips to the dog beach…she does it all. Our dogs also range from snuggle bugs to stubborn as an ox and they all love her equally.”
“I'm so glad Mckensi was able to walk my dogs today! My 2 pups are very different and I don't know many who can handle the puppy's...exuberance...but Mckensi took it all in stride when she met them pre-walk, and was able to handle walking them both together! (Next time I'll leave you a map of suggested routes, so you get a more varied walk ?)”
“I have known Mallory for over 2 years now. Among many attributes she possesses, politeness, happiness, and caring are the ones that stand out. As far as her animal love goes, Mallory has an Australian Sheppard named Baylee and a Corgi named Marcie as a pet. If you know Mallory in person, you can attest that her love for animals is the greatest. She will always make time from her busy schedule to take them out for walks or other activities, such as meeting other dogs or going for a swim at the beach. Furthermore, she is always very attentive to their health and takes them regularly to the vet to ensure that her pets are in good shape. Mallory is a great people person, she is always willing to meet new people and treat them with respect. Mallory would be a perfect candidate for caring for your pets because she is loving, caring, and very respectful to other people and pets.”
About: Hi! My name is Destiny, I have such a strong love and passion for our fur babies and pet care is what I will always want to do long-term. I have been working on Rover for a little while but also have other previous experiences from owning various pets of my own such as dogs, cats, bunnies and fish. As well as working at a veterinary clinic, volunteering and fostering at rescues. I can’t wait to meet all of your amazing animal friends and take great care of them while you're away. I'm currently only working part-time so I'll have plenty of time to play and care for your fur babies! Days unavailable due to other obligations will be reflected upon the calendar provided through Rover. Please don't be afraid to ask either way! :) I will keep your fur babies safe by keeping in touch frequently including pictures and/or videos. Following all directions provided by the owner. Keep them active with plenty of play time as well as supervised outdoor play time, walks and if your fur baby is in need of another pup friend I do have a very friendly/social mini goldendoodle pup of my own I can bring by for some supervised playtime (he would need to be brought by to the meet and greet to ensure the safety of both pups)!
“An absolute wonderful person to watch after your pet! She was so loving toward Charlie and he had an absolutely blast with her while I was out of town. Big thanks to Theresa!”

“Jo has always loved animals and had pets her whole life. Dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, bunnies, goats and donkeys. She wanted to be a vet like all little girls want. She raised Ocho, an injured early litter removal doberman puppy to a beautiful HUGE pet that her uncle now owns in florida. She would be a very empathetic and loving pet caregiver for multiple breeds of animals. Dawn W.”
About: What started out as babysitting quickly turned to dog and cat sitting as parents and friends saw the love that I have for children and animals. As a recent WMU grad, I am looking to fill my time with fulfilling work that I love. What’s better than hanging with animals? When I’m not nannying or working as a behavioral therapist, I enjoy spending time with our furry friends. Because I live in an apartment, I prefer to go to clients homes and care for pets where they feel most comfortable and at home. Though I do have a large yard and gated dog park where I live!
“Maggie is the best!! Our dogs were staying with my elderly parents while we were out of town and needed to be walked everyday. Maggie came to our rescue and walked them daily and gave them VIP treatment! Maggie is a dependable, professional loving care giver and we would definitely call her again to care for our dogs!!”
“Sara has been an absolutely spectacular dog walker for us for an extended period of time. She is very reliable and communicative. We have always trusted that our dog is in safe hands with her. Our pup Winnie absolutely LOVES Sara and has so much fun with her. We will definitely reach out to Sara again in the future!”
