“Mindy is so sweet with my pups. They enjoy the walks in the middle of the day! She hangs out with them and they feel less lonely when I have to work long days.”
“Candace was a huge help! She was able to come walk my puppy on short notice, and took great care of her! I will definitely be using her again in the future!”
“Bianca is a excellent pet sitter she takes care of all the animals that are under her care , very efficient to work , very sweet with them , and most important she is very responsible doing her job .”
“Audrey was very responsive and communicated very quickly regarding my request for service. She updated me often and provided pictures and video. She is very knowledgeable about handling dogs and made some useful suggestions. I would definitely use her again. She is a very pleasant professional young lady.”
“I highly recommend Keri for your pet sitting needs. She was very responsive from the beginning to the end of the Rover process. I felt confident leaving Akadia in her care.”
“I can’t recommend Terry enough! He house sat for our cats while we were out of the country for two weeks and we couldn’t have left them in better hands. We came home to two very happy cats. Our one cat, Taz, is very timid and doesn’t usually come out while strangers are around. On our first meeting with Terry he had Taz flopping around and purring for him. That was when I knew he was the right person for our furry friends.. Since we’ve been home Taz has been out and about and so happy. Terry absolutely has the magic touch when it comes to cats. While we were away Terry sent updates and pictures which was awesome! We arrived home to a spotlessly clean house and very happy cats. As we arrived home later than expected Terry had left us with a note giving us a full update on the house and cats, so I was left with no questions and felt totally comfortable that everything had been taken care of. Terry clearly loves cats and understands all their quirky ways and you couldn’t be leaving your pets in better hands!”
“OMG Heather is my forever pet sitter. I love her long messages and tons of pics per visit. She's been super great with the kids. Highly recommend!”

“Lindsey has been my go to pet sitter for years. I have a highly energetic German shepherd that she handles with great ease and can keep up with. I also have a senior dog that she ensures to give medicine to and lots of loves. My two cats are very comfortable with her and run up to the door as soon as they see her. I have a gecko and fish tanks that I know I can trust her to feed and check their temperature/humidity levels. Lindsey is a very trustworthy pet sitter, always has been reliable and loving to my animals. I could not recommend a better pet sitter that has lots of knowledge on all sorts of pets.”
“We are so blessed to have found Miranda to take care of our pups. She does a fabulous job and they love her. She is a gem!”
About: As a lifelong animal lover, I understand how important it is to find loving, quality care for your little one! I also understand the anxiety that can come with leaving your guy or gal in the care of someone else. I’ll work with you to customize care, companionship, and communication to make sure both you and your furry friend feel completely at ease! I am experienced with older and younger animals, medication administration and special needs animals. For all services - drop ins, house sitting and dog walking services - you can look forward to regular updates, and pictures while your little one looks forward to playtime, massages, and snuggles! I’ll take care of your little one as if they are my own. Unfortunately, I no longer offer boarding services. One of my guys is getting older, is easily injured and a bit impatient! :) I work from home — this process me some flexibility and allows me the ability to customize my breaks and lunch based on the needs of my clients. Unfortunately, I no longer offer boarding services due to the needs of my older dog Giggs. He gets stressed easily and has knee and back issues from time to time.
About: I've been surrounded by dogs for as long as I can remember. I have had neighbors, family, and friends rely on me to walk and feed their pets. Whether it be at their own house or at my own. I also had a job for a couple years not long ago at a pet store and was able to gain knowledge about pet care and safety. I'm currently at college full time some days, so I'll have multiple days that I could spend time with your pup. I don’t have a job yet because I’m still adjusting to life in college. But my classes are set in stone for certain days and times so there will be next to no changes in routine. I will always be aware of what the animal is doing at any time and will be making sure that I and the animal are safe at all times.
“I cannot say enough good things about Allie. She goes above and beyond when caring for our dogs. She has built a kind and loving relationship with them that allows me to know they are loved even when I am away. She is reliable and shows up on time and frequently, guaranteeing quality care and attention. Allie also takes the time to connect with me via text to provide updates and photos of my dogs while I am away. I know my dogs are being cared for and loved while under Allie's care. This allows me the freedom to leave and not worry about them. When I return they are happy and not stressed. She does an outstanding job!”
About: Growing up I had/have both dog and cats, who I have always had a soft spot for. I’ve been asked to dog sit many times, for neighbors and family, who trusted me to feed, love on, bathe and give medicine to their beloved pets. I especially love watching pets play around and goof off!! I am doing rover most of the time so your fluffy friend will have my full attention and I will be able to give your pet the love and care they need to be comfortable and happy, just as you left them. Taking care of your pets in your home will be done efficiently, and precise just as you do it, as to keep familiarity for your dog!
“Sandy has impressed me with her dedication to her own dog. She’s very disciplined in taking her for walks every day. Sandy enjoys being outside and talking to people so walking her dog is very enjoyable for her. She has taken care of my two dogs in her home and in mine. She always gets down on the floor to play with them and they are always excited to see her. I would highly recommend Sandy to anyone wanting their pet walked, taken care of or just played with.”
“Bailey is a close friend of mine, and is the first person that my family goes to when we're in need of a dog sitter! She has watched my black lab, Fenway, on multiple occasions during trips and busy days, and she has done a phenomenal job. Bailey is caring, attentive, and engaging with dogs of all sizes and personalities, and she would be a great pick for any Rover needs!”
“Isabella was great. Our dog was happy to see her and she treated our dog like her own. I highly recommend Isabella!”
“Emily is wonderful! Very professional, responsible, on time, great at communicating any issues/concerns. She is really easy to work with. We would definitely use her again.”
About: I’ve been a vet tech since 2019, I’ve worked at two separate clinics. I’ve also worked with rescue and even helped my mother run a bully rescue called Brooke Haven Bullies. Neighbors, friends, family, and customers have all relied on me to take care of and love their fur babies as my own! I have three pets myself. A German shepherd, a Doberman, and a cat. I work from home so I use pet sitting/training as an extra income/hobby. I exercise, hike, or walk the track of Lake Reba every day with my fur babies and would love to take yours! My pets are on a routine. They go outside to the restroom around every 1-4 hours, I’m currently training my 11 week old puppy so we go outside daily and work on that. I feed my pets once in the morning and then before bed.. I’m strict and stay on schedule, never late!
