Incredible! Communicative through the entire stay and my apartment is cleaner than i left it which is so Incredibly nice of her! I'm so pleased, and though this was a one-off/unlikely to need a dog sitter again type of vacation, I would without a doubt use Rose again if needed.

Shana was so great with our three cats, two of whom are really old and challenging. She kept us updated and was super responsive. We recommend her highly!

The best review I can give comes from our pups! When we left the house, Dan reported, the pups didn’t look out the window, they started to play! They loved that their routine was not interrupted and then Dan came back after our trip to pick up something he left and our one dog, Walter, who can be leary of men, gave him so many kisses! When Dan left, our dogs watched him pull out of the driveway and were disappointed!

Deanna is a warm and friendly young woman and did a great job of sitting for my two cats while I was away, sleeping over for three nights. She fed them and seemed to genuinely enjoy them. She sent me a photo every day to reassure me. She even cleaned up their vomit without complaining. She left my home neat as a pin, just as she found it. I recommend her and would certainly hire her again.

We are so grateful to have found Aliza! She stayed at our home with our two pups while we were out of town for a family event. This was the first time our pack of four had been separated since Covid, also our first time using Rover, so I wasn't sure what to expect or how it would go. Plus, it was the Fourth of July weekend and one of our pups is not good with fireworks or thunderstorms. But Aliza rose to the occasion! She swaddled and comforted little Leah during the fireworks with her best Mom skills. She sent plenty of pics so that I was able to feel completely at ease while we were away. Good communications via text. We found Aliza to be reliable and flexible, mature, trustworthy and responsible. The house was left for us in the same condition as she found it. The most important part was that the pups were happy and fine when we returned home. Wagging tails all around! Would definitely recommend and we will definitely rebook with Aliza in the future.

Kristen took great care of my dog and cat. They both needed some extra care. She was great giving them their meds as well as treats. My dog loved her. I plan on having her take care of them again soon!

Nate is amazing with animals. I have never met anyone as loving, sweet, and patient with animals as he is. He has assisted me in situations that required a calm and steady hand, such as locating scared cats, when I could not do it. He has assisted me with my pets, as well as accompanied me and assisted on house sits. He is trustworthy, dependable, and honest.

Anyone that comes across Anastasia’s profile needs to immediately book her to sit, walk, and take care of your little loved one. We were traveling for the holiday weekend, and booked Anastasia to stay with our dog Bishop while we attended a wedding and as hectic as it was for us to even arrive to our destination Anastasia had the most amazing communication, super quick response , was super patient, knowledgeable and understanding. Even after a phone call with her of her getting food for our pup we immediately felt safe, comfortable, and had so much weight taken off our shoulders. I’d write this review forever because there are only great things I can say, our pup bishop is still shy and new to strangers and within minutes of spending times with Anastasia bishop immediately liked her. She sent us pictures throughout the booking , and really took care of Bishop. Anastasia you rock!!! We will continue to book you every chance we get when we are in the area, but truly thank you for just being amazing to our little one Sincerely, Juan & Dallis Please book her ; you will not regret it!

About: All dogs love me and I take the time to get to know them so that walking is a joint experience. Being outside is the best thing for our dogs. This is part of my personal exercise and fitness routine. What better way to stay fit than walking with a friend? (oh....that's your dog). Let's go! Safety is paramount so looking for any areas of risk is my first action in a clients home. Most people take safety of pets for granted.

Lauren was great! Our dog is working through some separation anxiety and Lauren hung out with her while we went out for a few hours. Loved and appreciated the walks and photo updates.

I've known Rachel for years, and she is always engaged, enthusiastic, and respectful. Marty, her own dog, has benefited immensely from her constant attention to his health, diet, and activity level, vastly improving his physical and emotional health since his adoption. Her patience and love for pets is only matched by her consideration for their owners and other caretakers. Ensuring everyone is informed of any problems, questions, or other potential issues through regular communication is always a top priority. She genuinely cares about the lives of everyone involved and is as trustworthy as they come.

About: I recently moved over to Rover from TrustedHouseSitters where my partner and I house/pet sit for others. I recognize I am new to this platform and would really appreciate being given the chance to care for your pet! I’ve lowered rates for walks to hopefully get my first couple of clients. I have housesit for 9 different hosts for a total of 90 nights, caring for both cats and dogs, and we averaged a 5-star review from all of our hosts. We cared for dogs ranging in size and age, making sure they got fed on time, got their daily walks, and most importantly got some attention and affection from us as well. I enjoy running, so if your have a very active dog that would enjoy going on a run with me, I would be happy to take them with me in the morning or evening. When I visit my partner, I also take her families Bernepoodle, Sumo, out for his walk. I'm comfortable walking multiple dogs at the same time; during one house sit I took 3 dogs out for walks, two times daily around a mile each and felt fairly comfortable doing so. I am currently finishing up my teaching residency in the Bronx this school year, so I am mostly restricted to the weekends until I complete my residency in August 2024. I am fairly flexible on the weekends and am accustomed to waking up very early because of my morning commute to the Bronx. With my experience housesitting, I'm used to caring for pets and a host's home! I'm communicative and love sending updates/pictures of how everyone is doing. I prioritize maintaining a clean space, a set feeding and walking schedule, and spending time with the dogs to give them good company. I'm careful when it comes to walks and stick to the sidewalks, quiet roads, and parks. I am male, so if your dog is aggressive around men, please keep my safety in mind as well.

Anastasia is a natural, caring animal lover. She has responsibly taken care of my 3 cats numerous times (one of which requires walking on a leash outside) She is respectful of the home the animals live in, and the owners directions for pet care. She is level headed and mature. Highly recommended. Jeanne G.

Erin was a fantastic pet sitter for our two dogs while we were away on vacation. She took them for long walks, fed them, and took care of any cleanup that needed doing. She is very trustworthy and always kept us in the loop with how things were going. We highly recommend her services!
