This was the first time I ever used Rover and I was happy with the process and with Theresa. She came over and met Lucy a couple of weeks before she was to stay at the house with Lucy. She quickly realized how important Lucy is to me and sent me numerous pictures and updates throughout the time I was gone. I even had a nice little surprise when I returned from my trip which was a very nice touch on Theresa's part.

Upon meeting Madeline, I immediately felt comfortable at the thought of trusting her with my girl Lucy for the weekend. Madeline took excellent care of her while I was gone. Communication with her was easy and she sent frequent picture updates. We’ll certainly book with her again. Thanks, Madeline!

Jackie was amazing with our dog, Teddy. She kept us updated as much as we asked, she was easy to communicate with, and best of all, Teddy seemed to really love her! She has a natural connection with animals and does an excellent job with their care. We will definitely be having Jackie dog sit for us in the future.

I have known Stephanie for 42 years. She was raised with dogs, cats and horses. She is a responsible and caring individual. She loves animals of all species especially cats and dogs. She has adopted her own animals and has given them a loving comfortable home. She has cared for my dogs and they love her. I am an animal lover too and have raised Stephanie to be the same. I trust her with any of my animals which include dogs, cats and horses.

We have an aging puppy who has special needs and has NEVER been cared for by anyone but family! But we had a situation where the entire family had to travel, so we had to trust a stranger with our precious boy… and our active Husky as well. We were immediately drawn to Drew because of his amazing reviews on Rover - many stars and many reviews and many repeat customers! It still was the hardest thing we ever had to do. We asked him to house-sit so he could be attentive to the dogs anytime they might need it, and he agreed. He sent us reports, a wonderful photo, and everything was in perfect order when we got home from our trip. I cannot express how grateful we are that we found Drew and that he took care of our “children”! Now if we need to do this again, we know who to turn to.

Kathy was incredible. She was patient with our two dogs that have different needs. Lilly is an elderly dog, and Sam is an anxious little guy. Kathy went above and beyond, giving both the extra attention that they needed. She sent me several updates each day with pictures. Anyone would be lucky to have Kathy care for their pets!

Lizzie was amazing!! She stayed at our house with our 2 labs for 11 days while we went out of the country. She would send pictures about every day and was great at communicating. It’s always nice to have your dogs in the comfort of their own house. When I got back she had the house cleaned and washed her own bedding, which she didn’t need to but I know I would have done the same. I will definitely use her again.

Barb was fantastic! I received regular updates on the pups. They were so happy! My house was spotless and well kept too. I actually had an issue with my furnace while she was there and she assisted with that. I highly recommend Barb!

Claire was so great with our 2 dogs and cat for an overnight stay. It was our first time using Rover and admittedly, I felt like somewhat of a helicopter pet mom going from a trusted friend watching our pets to a ‘stranger’, plus having specific instructions about how to deal with our high energy/anxiety dog and keeping our car separate from our other dog. But with all of those instructions, Claire listened every step of the way and made everything so seamless. I could tell in our meet and greet our fur babies would be in great hands, but she exceeded that. She was extremely responsive, understood this being our first time with Rover, and sent plenty of updates. She’s truly is the reason we were able to enjoy our holiday and know our pups and cat were taken care of. We will definitely be booking her in the future if she’s available whenever we need it.

Rod took great care of my two huskies while I was away on business. He has a way with connecting with dogs and was very attentive to every need and made sure to send pictures and frequent updates, which I enjoyed! When I came home, they hardly got up to greet me - which to me is the mark of a great dog sitter and tells me that he took such great care of them that they didn't miss me much while I was gone... Which is what I want! They absolutely love him, and I 100 percent will be re-booking with him for future dates. Thanks Rod for being such an awesome sitter!

Ana was wonderful as always. She watched our dog for multiple days in a row and sent us pictures and videos each day. She is very responsive and personable and makes our time away from our dog stress free. She goes above and beyond, and our dog always has fun-filled days with her!

About: I have been around dogs since I was a young lad. I was responsible for the family dog into my teens. When visiting other people who had dogs, I always seemed to gravitate towards their pets. I would pet and play with them long after everyone else had stopped paying attention. After I graduated from college I had dogs of my own. When I got married my pet experiences broadened. Through my own family I have now gained experience caring for hamsters, guinea pigs, bunnies, fish, and some small birds. Only in the last few years have we not had a pet of our own, which is one of the reasons I am able to help care for your pet. I have a soft spot for animals and I enjoy caring for them. I am a full-time teacher, which fills up my weekdays. I am able to help care for your pet in the evenings, weekends, and holidays. When I had pets of my own, I was careful to make sure that my buddy was well-cared for. I paid close attention to their diet, tried to have a good mixture of outdoor play time and time inside. When watching other people's pets in my home, I have followed the directions they have provided, as they know best what their pet may eat and what kind of play and exercise is most enjoyable and beneficial. I would give the same attention and standard of care for your pet.
