Thanks for watching Doug for us! Olivia was so easy to work with and flexible. She communicated really well and sent lots of cute photos for us to enjoy! We were a little nervous having someone watch Doug for the first time but seeing how well it went, we are at complete ease now! Highly recommend her services and will book again

Brian took excellent care of our 2 dogs. Our one dog is very anxious and he was very attentive and patient with him. We were kept updated with each drop in visit which was very nice. We will definitely be using Brian again in the future. Definitely recommend him.

This was our first family vacation in which all of us would be gone, and we were quite nervous leaving our two cats for such a long period. Karen put us at ease by taking such good care of them, coming twice per day and sending us detailed updates. She even went above and beyond by bringing our mail inside. We are super thankful for Karen and would definitely request her services the next time we go away.

We love Keith! Our neurotic pandemic baby tuxedo cat Kevin can be a tough nut to crack. Keith took the extra time to make Kevin feel comfortable and win him over, when he could have just fed him and left. Will definitely be booking again for our future trips. :)

I highly recommend Lindsay as an exceptional dog sitter. She has taken care of my Australian shepherd overnight for up to seven nights on multiple occasions, and each time, she has provided outstanding care. Lindsay is incredibly attentive and loving, playing catch, going for long walks, and providing plenty of snuggles. She always ensures that my dog feels comfortable and happy, and her genuine affection for animals is evident in everything she does. Knowing that my dog is in Lindsay’s hands gives me complete peace of mind. Lindsay is reliable, trustworthy, and truly goes above and beyond. I am grateful to have found such a wonderful caregiver for my dog!

I could not have asked for a better human to be looking after my handsome baby boy! Christa was extremely professional, reliable and handled my 16 year old cat's needs amazingly. She went above and beyond to make sure he was fed, had fresh water and even tended to his litterbox. I look forward to booking Christa again!

About: I've been taking care of dogs for 10+ years. I was apart of Rover while studying in NYC - walking dogs of all kinds. I've grown up around 2 family dogs (Golden Retriever and Sheltie mix) & am comfortable with all breeds. I work from home and have an extremely flexible schedule - let me cuddle and love on your best friends! My skills: Daily Care and Feeding: Understanding the dietary needs of different pets. Providing fresh water and nutritious food. Following feeding schedules and portion control. Exercise and Enrichment: Providing regular physical activity (walks, playtime). Offering mental stimulation through toys, puzzles, and training. Ensuring pets have opportunities for social interaction. Health Monitoring: Recognizing signs of illness or discomfort. Administering medications or treatments as prescribed. Keeping up with vaccinations and routine vet visits. Safety and Comfort: Providing a safe and secure environment. Ensuring pets have comfortable bedding and shelter. Keeping living spaces clean and hazard-free. Record Keeping: Maintaining records of vaccinations, medications, and vet visits. Tracking feeding schedules, exercise routines, and behavior patterns. I have been working from home for 2 years and am available weekday mornings, lunch and evenings. I am also available full-time most weekends. My schedule is very flexible and I am available last minute if needed! In My Home Preparation and Environment: Pet-Proofing: Remove any hazards such as toxic plants, chemicals, and small objects that could be swallowed. Safe Space: Provide a dedicated area for the pet to rest and feel secure, with a comfortable bed and toys. Daily Routine: Feeding: Follow a consistent feeding schedule with appropriate portions and balanced nutrition. Water: Ensure fresh, clean water is always available.

In a Client’s Home Initial Consultation: Meet and Greet: Spend time getting to know the pet and discussing their routine with the owner. Home Tour: Understand the layout of the home and any specific areas the pet is allowed or restricted from. Adhering to Routine: Consistency: Stick to the pet’s established feeding, exercise, and medication schedule as closely as possible. Comfort Items: Use the pet’s familiar items like beds, toys, and feeding bowls to reduce stress. Communication: Updates: Provide regular updates to the owner about the pet’s well-being and any concerns. Emergency Plan: Know the contact information for the pet’s vet and emergency contacts. Safety and Cleanliness: Secure Environment: Ensure all doors, gates, and windows are secure to prevent escapes.

Clean Up: Leave the home as clean as you found it, including any pet-related messes.

Jill was our favorite rover yet! Consistently provided 8 photos and updates of our kitties everyday and it was a huge treat compared to previous rovers. We felt so comfortable leaving our pets and home in Jill’s hands and we 110% recommend!

August is a wonderful pet caregiver. They have done petsitting jobs for my family, helping to take care of 2 cats and a dog all at once. They give kind and close attention to the animals they work with: ensuring that the animals feel loved, are well-fed and well-hydrated, as well as engaged in play whenever they have extra energy. August is responsible and communicative. I highly recommend August as a pet caregiver.
