About: I have been watching my friends and neighbors dogs for 2 years now. I am able to give them medicine if need per owns request. Will play and feed them, also send pics and videos to owns. I am a college student who is currently working a part-time job. I am available everyday to walk pets. For overnight stays it depends on the times and day. I will walk the dogs around the neighborhood and send videos and pics of your dog. I will also text and call if there are any troubles.

Samuel was referred to me by a friend, and we loved him so much! We have a 90 lbs pitbull and it’s hard to come across someone who is willing to take care of a big dog! Samuel was more than happy to help us during the holiday season, and took care of our big baby Joey for over 10 days. He kept us updated throughout the whole stay by sending us pictures and updates on our pet everyday. Would definitely be coming back to Samuel and his lovely wife Lisa! I would definitely recommend him to take care of your fur babes!!

Mckenna is incredibly responsible and loves animals! She has owned dogs of her own that thrived from living in her home with lots of cuddles and yummy home-baked healthy treats. Mckenna has also watched friends’ dogs on a short-term basis—from a tiny schnauzer to an energetic golden to a spoiled King Charles Cavalier. She has watched my terrier mix and now, when Mckenna pulls into the driveway of our home, my dog loses her mind with excitement. I have no doubt Mckenna would be a star Rover walker / sitter.

We cannot recommend Chris highly enough as a dog walker! Our lab, Ruby, absolutely adores him. From the moment we met Chris, his warmth and enthusiasm put us at ease, and Ruby took to him right away. Chris is incredibly reliable and punctual, and his professionalism shines through in every interaction. He takes the time to play with Ruby, give her the exercise she needs, and even sends us updates and photos during their walks. Ruby comes home happy and exhausted, which is the best sign she’s had a great time.

Leilani was very responsive to our request for a last minute cat sitter and communicative throughout the process and visits through the app. She provided our cat food (including mixing in medication) and litter maintenance and petting. The cat had no complaints when we got home. Highly recommend Leilani for your cats.

About: *I will be located in:📍Westwood for school📍Palo Alto for holidays I do not have my own dog/cat, but have experience caring for cats and dogs alike. I grew up around friends with all types of dogs: from small and energetic, to large and old dogs (pomeranians, golden retrievers, huskies), which we have taken on outdoor adventures such as hikes, swims, and playing in the snow. My goal on Rover is to gain more experience caring for pets in their day-to-day life, so that I can better care for my future pet! I am a very attentive and detail-oriented person, and will ensure your pet is cared for and loved. I have a flexible summer schedule as I’m working remotely while back home from my MS program! Open to house sitting/ check-ins/ walking any day of the week I will be patient and calm with potentially shy pets, respecting their space when they need it. I’m also very happy to give your pet attention and time to play when they are feeling energetic and playful. I will send pictures and relevant updates to keep you worry-free!

Rebecca is absolutely amazing! She goes above and beyond and is always on time. She is so patient and kind with my two schnauzers (~17lbs and ~47lbs). I have a very hard time trusting anyone with my dogs but Rebecca made me feel so much at ease and I trust her completely. I am so thankful for Rebecca and have nothing but amazing things to say about her!

Tori is amazing, I wouldn’t have anyone else take care of my cats! She is patient, thoughtful, and very caring. She always takes great care of my cats when I’m gone. I’d highly recommend Tori to take care of your pets when needed. I’m always at ease when she’s caring for them.

It would be hard to find a dog walker and caregiver more loving and gentle than Jenni. She absolutely adores dogs and they seem to respond in kind! We’ve had three breeds (bulldogs, French Mastiff and Boerbul) so she is comfortable around all sizes and breeds. She’s 100% responsible and does what is needed and scheduled so you can relax knowing your family pet is in great hands! Can’t recommend her enough!
