Pet Sitting & Drop Ins in Oxford, Richmond, VA
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
“Dawn was great! She stopped by before the drop in to meet the dogs and took them all out in the rain. She was very accommodating of our senior pit bull and her need to be carried up stairs and I would recommend her services to anyone!”
“This was my first time using Rover, and Blythe exceeded all expectations! I was already out of town when my friend got sick and couldn't drop-in on Lizard, so I was scrambling to find someone to come by twice a day for 3 days in a row. Blythe responded to the request quickly, took excellent care of Lizard, and sent photos from every visit. I will definitely be using Blythe again anytime I need someone to drop-in when I'm out of town!”
“Damacia was very prompt in communication, friendly, and left us detailed notes and pictures when dropping in on our dogs. Will definitely use again when needed!”
“Communications were always rather prompt and easy. Even though my feeding instructions are a bit less conventional Abigail was willing and able to follow it completely. Every drop-in she spent the entire 30 min with my cat which I really appreciated. And she took the best pictures for updates. Thanks! :-)”
“I have known Zeya Dovis for many years. She has always been a dog lover, and is an excellent dog groomer working with dogs of all sizes and breeds. Zeya is a reliable and caring person, and would be an excellent pet caregiver. You could rest easy, knowing that she is providing loving care for your pet. Gail G.”
“Audrina is wonderful… a true kitty lover and all around lovely lady… She is very conscientious about her business and, not only takes great care of your pet, but is careful with your home… which is much appreciated… We’re fans!”
“Morgan took such fantastic care of our two cats while we were on vacation. We are new to the area and the kitties are still adjusting to their new home, and we were so appreciative of Morgan’s patience and regular updates. I can’t recommend Morgan enough! ?”
“Shelby always provides excellent care to pets! She helped me settle in with my dog when I was a first-time dog owner. She is confident and kind with every dog I've seen her interact with. You can rest assured that your pet will receive the best possible care (and plenty of snuggles) with Shelby.”
“Emily was prompt, responsible and conscientious as she watched Cole and Ella. We needed help watching our pups last minute and she was timely and scheduled a pre-departure meet and greet to make sure she knew everything she needed to know to take care of them.”
“Rosemary has come by a couple times to get to know Maya better to start watching her overnight and for longer periods of time. Maya immediately befriended Rosemary and yells at her excitedly and barrels into her with a hug every time she comes over. We are looking forward to having maya get to know Rosemary more. She’s made us feel super comfortable and that we made a great decision in working with her!”
“Kathy was great with my pups, and I especially appreciated her quick response when I needed help on short notice. Great communication and updates, would absolutely book her again!”
“Sydney stepped in when a previous rover cancelled last minute. Sydney is dependable and extremely communicative, and I would highly recommend!”
“Hope helped us out with short notice. She did a great job and took Homer on a good walk. Good communication!”
“Clara is a wonderful dog-sitter, she sat for my 13 year old yellow lab who needs a lot of attention. She took her out more than needed, and even took her on walks (something I don’t even do at home😂). Maizy absolutely loves her and I recommend her to anyone needing a trustworthy sitter.”
About: Hey there! As a girl who grew up on a farm, I’ve been taking care of animals most of my life. As a dog mom myself, I know how important it is to feel like your fur baby is in good hands! It’s my top priority to make sure your fur baby feels safe, loved, and that communication and updates are consistently provided. I’m comfortable handling doggos and cats of all ages, abilities, and personalities (as long as I get a heads up). I’m also an avid runner and would love to take your pup on a nice run (if that’s your pups thing). I hope to meet your fur baby soon! I am currently working part-time and have a flexible week day schedule. I am able to do multiple day visits, stay for some snuggles, etc. I will work to accommodate your preferences and your pup's routine. I will ensure your home is kept clean, secure, and meet any special requests unique to you and your family.
About: I've grown up with all kinds of animals. Dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, turtles, gerbils, horses, goats, you name it! As an extremely attuned, observant, compassionate and loving individual, I have a huge soft spot for animals. I know how important your pet is because I have grown up having had to say goodbye to mine. I also have almost lost my present cat. He is 10 years old and I have raised him since he was 8 weeks. We have moved internationally and cross country multiple times, and he has gone through an emergency surgery as well as dental surgery. With these challenges, I truly understand the responsibility, love and commitment being a pet owner requires! I also believe that our animals choose us, just as much as we choose them. I know how nerve-wracking it can be to leave your fur baby, they are our companions! Rest assured, I treat your pet as I do mine -- with the utmost patience, love and attention they deserve. I am about quality, not quantity. The quality of a visit, I believe (as well as the quality of ones life) is what matters most. Though this is my first time as a Rover sitter, I have over 6 years of experience caretaking for my friends and neighbors pets. With my love for animals coupled with having a flexible schedule due to working from home, I wanted to become a Rover sitter. I hope you would allow me the honor to check in on, play with and love your pet while you're away! I have a flexible schedule as I work from home. That means I can drop in during the early mornings, evenings or even mid-day if desired. To me, home should be a safe place and a sanctuary. I will treat your home just as I do mine. With attention, cleanliness, and respect.
About: I’ve been pet sitting for family and friends as a young adult for years now. Wether it be a short walk or a weekend stay, I’m just happy to help! I’m a student working for home so I’m always available to go in spontaneous walks! As my semester schedules come out all update my availability accordingly. I have a large backyard and live in a friendly neighborhood with lots of trails and foliage! I’m happy to take them for runs as well.
“Yolanda and Cheyenne took great care of our cat Lyla! They sent pictures along the way and communicated with us each day letting us know how she was doing. This was our first time using Rover and we are very happy to have had their help!!”
“Betsy is a "natural" when it comes to caring for animals! Her love of cats and dogs, especially, combined with a deep sense of responsibility make her more than a pet "sitter." Betsy has cared for my animals for several years so I can attest personally to her reliability and care and attention for my babies!”
