Jodie & Zhuxi W.
“Jodie and Zhuxi are wonderful and made our 2 dogs feel completely safe and cared for while we were away. Jodie sent me pics and videos daily. Highly recommend their doggie day care or boarding. They care for many dogs and are great!”
“Step was great with Ichigo! I was so happy to hear that Ichigo had a great time with his dog Hugo and his family as well. Highly recommend and will definitely come back!”
“Jessica did a wonderful job with my sweet dog Delilah! I appreciated her communication and the photo updates I received. I could tell Delilah was comfortable and happy with Jessica! Overall great dog sitting experience”
Edward & Elisha C.
“This is the second time Clover stayed with Edward & Elisha. Just like the first stay, he had a blast! We are so appreciative of all the love Edward & Elisha give Clover while we are gone.”
“Tracey and her family took great care of our Frenchie while we were away. Her dog, Lola, was an instant friend for our dog and we loved the photos of the two dogs playing.”
“Caroline has cared for my dog Teddy on multiple occasions. He loves spending time with her because of all the outdoor exercise, they always go on lots of long walks and he’s exhausted when I come to pick him up! I will definitely rebook Caroline in the future.”
“Olga took really good care of our two black labs. She sent us pictures every day and she made me feel like they were really well cared for. Our dogs were happy with her. Thank you Olga!”
“Lamija was absolutely wonderful with taking care of our dog Finn while we were out of town. Finn has issues with separation anxiety and Lamija was very understanding about his medication needs and made him feel right at home. She gave us a good number of updates to keep us up to date on how he was doing without overloading us with information. Finn had a great time and we will absolutely be checking with Lamija first anytime we need dog care.”
“Lavanya is super caring for our dog Cho Cho. She sent us photos and videos every day. Cho Cho looked really happy at her house playing with her dog Coco. Overall 5 star experience.”
“Yi watched my 50 pound husky mix Luna for 6 days without issues. Luna got to stay with his family in their house with a fence, and got lots of needed attention from his family members. Yi asked a lot of questions to make sure the dog he understands how to take care of Luna. My experience with Yi is an excellent one -- he was responsive, communicated regularly, and showed that he cared and liked Luna. I highly recommend Yi.”
“Finding Margaret was a god send! We have a reactive dog who isn't always friendly and finding people who can handle a dog like that is not always easy. After searching through hundreds of Rover profiles I finally found Margaret and I'm so glad I did! We had a lovely phone chat about Max and his behaviors as well as the style of training/handling we prefer (she is familiar with and willing to work with all sorts of styles). After our chat we setup a meet and greet and Max did so well with her from the get go - not even a peep out of him when they met! He quickly bonded with her and was more than happy to work with her right off the bat. She even had him meet some of her dogs (which he handled well too!). It was clear Margaret knew exactly what she was doing and had the confidence to put Max (and me!) at ease. After the meet and greet we setup an overnight boarding session to really see how Max would do - and it went so well! Margaret was incredibly communicative and gave us updates as she slowly introduced Max to her other dogs, took him on walks, and just generally kept us informed how he was handling his new environment. I was extremely impressed with how smoothly everything went and I felt so comfortable knowing Max was in good hands. I would absolutely recommend Margaret for any sort of "special needs" dogs in a heartbeat! Your dog is in safe and caring hands.”
“Marivel did such an amazing time with both my pups. Great communication and she always sent me photos and videos. Will definitely trust her with my fur babies again.”
Hector & Shannon R.
“Hector and his girlfriend did a fantastic job watching our 4 month old puppy Koda! They sent loads of photos and kept us up to date on everything, which was very reassuring, as this was the first time we were away from our pup since we brought him home. Would certainly book again!”
“Vanessa was great! My dogs clearly were living their best life: outings on leash, outings in a carrier on a bike, cuddling on the couch... They even came home with homemade jackets! Highly recommended!”
“Sarah went above and beyond! I received regular updates, including photos and messages about my dog's well-being, which brought me so much peace of mind during my time away. It's evident that Sarah has a genuine love for animals. She treated my dog, Louis like their own and provided ample playtime and affection. Sarah displayed a high level of professionalism. I felt confident that my dog was in capable and caring hands. I know Sarah is a very clean person! Her house was clean and safe and even had a dog carseat in her car. Everything was pet-friendly and secure! I'm incredibly grateful for the peace of mind Sarah provided not only as a caregiver for my Louis, but as a new friend! I recommend Sarah for anyone seeking a reliable, caring, and responsible dog sitter.”
“Liliane is wonderful! I was initially nervous about leaving Zoe (since Liliane is new to her) but WOW! Liliane is very loving, gentle, thorough and very clearly a lover of animals. I am very grateful for her care of Zoe while I was away. We will surely work with Liliane again!”
Nina & Leo O.
“We were very happy with out pet’s stay with Nina and Leo. Nina and Leo were very considerate of each of our dog’s individual needs. They gave us timely updates including the things pet parents worry about (potty, walks and feeding) with plenty of pictures. Our dogs usually take awhile to warm up to a new environment and the dogs appeared to have gotten comfy in a short time. We were confident our dogs were having a good time there and most importantly they were safe.”
Delaney & Sergio M.
“Coconut seemed to have fun with Delaney and Sergio. They took her to play with other dogs twice! They kept us on the loop and answered our questions quickly. We’ll definitely look to them first in the future!”
“V&S took terrific care of KitKat when we were out of town. They were so accommodating with our schedule and so friendly and helpful (even when I was super late to our meet up and I goofed on the drop off). We felt so comfortable trusting them with our dog and they took very good care of her. They were very understanding, kind and fun. And we loved seeing all the photos from her stay. It seems like she had a great time too. Thanks very much!”
“I had a very pleasant experience with Vanditha as my petsitter. She takes note of all your cats needs and makes sure to follow that routine. While I was gone it was relieving to get daily updates and pictures of my pet, thanks to her. I was running a little late because of flight delays and she was very quick to help out an extra day. I would definitely book her services again. Thank you Vanditha!”
