“Angie was great with our pups, spent extra time beyond the scheduled appt, great communication, sent plenty of pictures and gave plenty of attention. Excellent Rover, will use again ?”
“I had Linda as a regular checking in on mila (my dog). She was always so gentle with her and promptly updated river card with details. She communicates really well and I always felt safe having Linda drop in to take Mila out. I highly recommend her to anyone”
About: I originally started my pet care experience as a pet sitter for my neighbors during high school. My family had never owned a dog, but after I proved to my mom that I was responsible enough to care for someone else's pet, we got a dog of our own. Since then, I have cared for four dogs of my own at two separate households. They range in size from 10lbs-115lbs and I am therefore comfortable with dogs of any size. One of my pets has severe allergies so I am very familiar with food restrictions and the administration of medications for pets. I look forward to treating your pet as my own and developing a bond that makes them feel comfortable when you are unable to be there. I currently work as a teacher. I am gone weekday 6:30-3:30, but have full day availability during Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and summer break. Weekend availability is wide-open throughout the year. I have a fenced in-yard and love to take my dogs on walks. We focus on both mental and physical stimulation in our home to ensure dogs are thoroughly exercised.
“Julia did an amazing job. She was prompt and easy to work with, she connected quickly with our dog, and she went above and beyond in the time she devoted to our pet. We will definitely look to work with Julia again in the future.”
“Kristen was absolutely phenomenal! Our chihuahuas aren’t the most compliant beings on the planet, but she was very patient and creative in her approach to dealing with them. Thank you for all of your time and efforts!”
“Marjorie has helped care for 2 dogs of ours over the last 10 years. Our first German Shepherd Dog was very temperamental and Marjorie always knew how to handle her. Our second German Shepherd was less aggressive but both of our dogs love Marjorie. Very professional. I would highly recommend her!”
“Jennifer is a consistent caregiver for us for our two cats! We've entrusted our boys to her several times now, and she always does a fantastic job caring for them. They look forward to her presence and show their personalities for her now! She always does a great job and goes above and beyond. She even took our packages in for us.”

“as a relatively new cat mom, going into leaving my cats for a couple of days I was definitely nervous. but right after meeting Laura and Sheena I had absolutely no worries. they’re super dependable, trustworthy, and my cats warmed up to them so quickly. they also kept me well updated w/ messages and sent a bunch of cute kitty photos as well which I definitely appreciated :)”
“Everything was great! The pups were happy and well cared for.”
“Mikendra is very good with pets. She watched my dog Jumper for me a couple weeks ago and he loves her. He was happy to go on walks and play with her. Would definitely recommend her to take care of your fur babies!”
“Angel did an awesome job and went above and beyond to help us with our dogs!! She is very dependable and responsible. We will be using her again.”
“Thank you Jennifer! Ziggi looks beautiful in the pictures so I know she was happy and comfortable with you!”
About: Hello :) I am a stay at home mom in Fort Wayne with plenty of free time to care for your pets when you’re unable to. I have been a pet parent my whole life and I understand that they need more than just food and water while you’re away. I also rely on pet sitters when I am out of town so I know it can be a bit nerve wracking to leave your fur babies in the hands of a stranger. I can send picture and video updates to put your mind at ease! I am happy to drop in, play, walk, and love on your baby a few times a day while you’re gone. I’ll also check around the house for any accidents if you would like so you don’t come home to a mess. I am almost always free. I homeschool my 3 and 6 year old daughters and we love to get out of the house every day. Dropping in to love on your pets would fit into our schedule perfectly :) At each visit, I will take your dogs out to walk/run around (weather permitting). I will also engage them in some good play time inside to let them burn off some energy or just soak up some attention. I will send regular updates to let you know that they’re doing well or to report any concerns.
About: Growing up with a dog, I am familiar with potty breaks, feeding schedules, walking/playing, and bath time hacks. When I moved out of my parents home I took on dog sitting as a side time gig. I have 4 families I watch and take care of their fur babies as needed and came to Rover to find more! I also have raised a puppy of my own - Murphy! Lots of experience with all stages of life. Currently I am in between jobs and have lots of free time. My ideal full time job will be remote based which will open up my availability as well. My goal for your pet is to keep their schedules on track and keep their tails waggin! The dog is the priority and I fully intend on making sure their needs are met before leaving the home.
“Always on time and does amazing with willow. Always my first request.”
About: I have been a sitter for pets for almost my whole life! My family rescued Great Danes in my childhood, and that changed my life. I volunteered at Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control with the cats, but any time I have animal sat for my family/friends it has been with mostly dogs. Getting to work with cats at the animal shelter grew my love of pet care! I have sat for big and little dogs alike, and feel comfortable with any age, and any sized dog. I currently work part time (Monday through Friday). I am free from 9am - 2pm, as well as any time after 6pm! I am free all day Saturday and Sunday, as I do not work on those days! I will not be able to house animals in my house, as I have pets of my own, but I am more than comfortable with watching pets in your home! I will make sure to keep your house tidy, and clean up after your pet while you are away. Feeding, watering, scooping out the cat box, and most importantly loving on your furry friend! I am comfortable taking your pet on walks, or any other activities as well!
“Justin would be a great caregiver for your pet while you are away. He has a love for animals, tons of experience with dogs, cats and even exotic pets. He’s got a big heart, great attitude and amazing work ethic! Your pet will be thrilled to have Justin take care of them in your absence.”
“Javonte is a very responsible person and he loves animals. He has three animals of his own two dogs and one cat. They are very well taken care of. He has taken care of my animals before I have two cats, a dog, and a horse. Everything is always perfect and I never have problems. He would be a perfect fit for all animals when they need taken care of.”
“Jordan is great with pets taking time out of his day to play with them & has patience when learning how to interact with them, especially with our family dog Fredward.”
About: I’ve been taking care of dogs and other pets since I was 8 years old! Neighbors, friends and family have all relied on me to take great care of their dogs, and play with them as well! Overnight or just for the day. I am currently in school so weekdays I have that 9am-4pm but I have a break at 12 so the longest I would be away is 4 hours. I also have friends who live in the same neighborhood who are willing to stop over and let dogs out for a quick potty and play! I have a very friendly little dog to keep your puppy company! I also have a dog safe apartment and a backyard with a long runner for them to play.
