I can't say enough about Rocky. He has gone out of his way on many occasions to care for our pets. A couple of examples would be that he came to our house to pick-up our 2 dogs and 1 cat when I was hospitalized after a car accident. Another was with our 15+ year old Lab-Mix. Rusty was getting on and arthritis was starting to get the better of him, so rather than making him walk on his last stays at the kennel Rocky improvised an 'Uber' service for Rusty with a wheel barrow. These are the kind of things which added a personal touch to everything he did for our pets and us. When it comes to pet care, Rocky is a 'Top Shelf' provider.

I rated him a 5 * but if given the opportunity I would rate him a 5000+ star. He is WONDERFUL! Luie stayed at my home overnight and My dogs love him and they attached to him right away ! He is loving, caring, understanding, flexible, professional, considerate, honest, friendly and so much more! I have three dogs and one of them is a Pandemic doggie who hasn’t interacted with many people over the last few years and he took to Louie as part of the family. If you want a great person taking care of your home and your dogs Luie is the person to hire!

Kennedy was awesome, from the very start our pups greeted her like they knew her already!! Luna tends to be very shy so that was quite the milestone! She took great care of both and we couldn’t be happier!! 100% recommend!! 🎊

The most amazing experience with Elisa!! She was incredibly awesome with our very shy 2 dogs. She was extremely patient to gain their trust (not easy to do BTW lol) to the point that they even slept with her after getting to know her- that is how good she is! We loved Elisa and definitely will be our -go to- from now on every time we need a doggy sitter. Our girls got a new bestie with Elisa!

Christopher did a great job with Moose. I think Moose made a new friend for life. Christopher was very attentive. He was respectful of our home and made sure that Moose was happy.

I am absolutely thrilled to write this review for Ilona, who is without a doubt, the best pet sitter I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Ilona is a compassionate, caring, and dedicated person who went above and beyond to ensure the comfort and happiness of my dog, Uma. From the moment she stepped into my home, her positive and outgoing personality shone through. I am very particular about who I let near my dog, and Ilona made it her priority to ensure both Uma and I felt completely at peace. What impressed me the most was her proactive approach. She asked numerous questions to understand Uma's needs and even met with Uma before accepting the task to ensure my dog was comfortable around her. This level of dedication and care is unfortunately so rare nowadays, not just among petsitters but people in general.... During her time with Uma, she kept me updated with plenty of pictures from their walks, allowing me to see that Uma was not only safe but also having a great time. It was such a relief to know that everything was alright. And the pictures were really cute too :))) When I returned, I found Uma in high spirits, without the usual stress she experiences after I leave her with someone else. My heartfelt thanks to the Rover service and especially to Ilona! Despite her limited number of reviews, I took a chance, and I am so glad I did. I hope this review will give others the confidence to trust her with their pets. She is truly a gem in the world of pet sitting, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Jennifer has a great deal of experience in taking care of both dogs and cats. She started as a small girl and has usually had a dog or a cat in her life to care for. She has also taken care of friends and siblings animals when they were away. Recommend without hesitation.

We left our senior dog under Nora's care while we were away for a week. Our first time using Rover so we weren't sure how things would go. Nora sent pics, texts, and videos, which really kept us connected to him. She took him on walks, and kept him company along with his general care. We felt he was in caring hands. I will definitely ask Nora to come back. She is very good at providing care and earned our trust over this last week.

Shatera was AMAZING with my pup, Tucker! She house say for us while we went on vacation. She offered to do a merry and greet at our house before the stay to meet him and see the house. This was super helpful as our dog is very dog selective and it was the first time we had left him with someone he didn’t know. I was so incredibly nervous prior to meeting her as Tucker can be a lot to handle, especially for a stranger. But as soon as we met her, we knew we were leaving him in good hands! She sent pictures and videos of their adventures and gave updates throughout the stay. She was very communicative and followed directions thoroughly. The best part? Tucker loved her and her family! I highly recommend Shatera for anyone nervous about using a sitter service. She was incredible throughout the entire process! Happy to say we’ve found our dog sitter for Tuck ?

Kerry was amazing. My dogs loved her and she showed that she loved my dogs. She spoiled them rotten and I swear they yell for her to come back. I would recommend Kerry to anyone who needed a house sitter and dog/kitty sitter. She is fabulous. We all love Kerry.

About: Since I was a teenager, I've been entrusted with the care of pets belonging to friends, relatives, and neighbors. They know they can rely on me to give their furry buddies the attention they deserve. What sets me apart is my experience in administering various medications, including insulin for both dogs and cats. I've become quite skilled at handling those sometimes-tricky injections. Whether it's insulin, oral medications, or other prescribed treatments, I'll make sure your pet gets the right dosage at the right time. On top of that, I have two cats and a dog of my own who are my absolute world. Having my own pets has taught me the importance of patience, love, and understanding when it comes to providing exceptional care. When you choose me as your pet sitter, you can rest easy knowing that your pets will receive the highest level of care. From medication administration to cuddles and playtime, I'll give your furry companions all the attention and love they need. They'll be in great hands with me! As someone who works from home in the commercial Insurance field, I have the flexibility to effortlessly incorporate pet care into my daily and weekly routine. During the day, I'm available to make sure your pets are comfortable and happy. Regular bathroom breaks are a must, and I'll make sure your furry friends have plenty of opportunities to stretch their legs and do their business while they're with me. Once my workday winds down in the evenings, my focus shifts to spending quality time with the pets in my care. We'll go for leisurely walks, engage in playful activities, and I'll give them all the attention they need to keep their tails wagging and their spirits high. If needed, I can easily rearrange my workspace to stay close to your pets throughout the day. Your pets' safety and well-being are my top priorities, and I'll always be there to address their needs promptly. For your convenience, I'm available for Drop-In visits before 8 am and after 4:45 PM on weekdays. Whether it's feeding, potty breaks, or playtime, I'm here to provide the necessary care during these times to fit your schedule. Rest assured that your pets will be pampered and loved as if they were my own. I understand the importance of consistency, and I'll create a warm and structured environment where your furry companions can thrive and feel right at home. When it comes to caring for pets, I prioritize their safety, trust, and happiness, whether they're in my home or in their own cozy space. For dogs, I have a fantastic fenced-in yard where they can freely explore and have a blast off-leash. It's a secure space where they can burn off their energy and have a paw-some time! If your furry friend is a small animal that prefers or requires a crate, I've got you covered. I have crates available to ensure their comfort and safety. Just let me know if you'd like them to have their own cozy space. In addition to these services, I offer drop-in visits, which means I'll swing by your place to take care of all the important stuff—feeding, bathroom breaks, and playtime included! It's a great way to ensure your pets are happy and well taken care of while you're away. Whether you need boarding, house sitting, drop-in visits, doggy daycare, or dog walking, I've got you and your furry pals covered! Your pets will feel right at home during boarding or house sitting, getting all the love and attention they deserve. Doggy daycare is a fun and stimulating experience for your pups, while dog walking ensures they stay fit, healthy, and have a wag-tastic time outside. Rest assured, I'll treat your pets like family—providing a safe, loving, and comfortable environment no matter where they are. You can count on me to make their experience full of tail wags, purrs, and all-around happiness!

About: I have always had animals since the day I was born. I grew up in an animal loving family and now I have my own animal loving family. I will be able to bathe, walk, feed, and board. I can take both cats and dogs. I am currently only working 1 hour a day Monday-Friday. This leaves me plenty of time to play with your pup and care for them. I am available to watch your pups weekend and weekdays. Drop off times are always flexible and based on your needs! I have a fenced in back yard so your pups will get plenty of exercise. I also have two dogs both who love to play are run around the yard. They are good with both small and larger dogs.
