“Coleen was great while watching our puppy. She always kept me up to date and took great care with the puppy and our house. Would highly recommend! Thank you!”
“Robin is fantastic! She obviously loves dogs and is totally great with them. She sent tons of pictures and I could tell my dog was super happy. Will definitely use her again!”
“For my husband and I, our furry baby Sasha, is our only child and we are a bit neurotic about her care. Sasha brings unique challenges with being 160 lb senior Great Pyrenees/Leonberger with atypical Addison's disease and doesn't handle stress well. Sabina was professional and very attentive during the meet and greet, which gave us a comfort level. During the actual house sitting, Sabrina did everything possible to make crazy pup parents comfortable. Between the regular update texts and great pictures, we knew our girl was being well taken care of. I never thought we would of been able to get this level of piece of mind that Sasha was going to be taken care of like we would of. Sabrina has given us that piece of mind!”
“Sophie was wonderful! Ernie was so well cared for and even the doormen were complimentary! Enjoyed the photos and updates. For a first time momma, Sophie provided me great confidence and relief.”
“Sarah went above and beyond while caring for our dog at our home. We have a very anxious dog that can be challenging to care for. She was patient and gave him space. Sarah was great with communication and photos, and was flexible with our departure and arrival times. Can't say enough good things!”
“Iselle was a delight to work with! She was very consistent, asked all the right questions, and our babies loved her. She kept us informed and sent pictures throughout her stay. She was very accommodating and we’d definitely use her in the future!”
“This was the first time Abigail watched our house and pets but it felt like she’d been doing it for ages because her updates were so thorough and gave us peace of mind. The dogs and cat took to her immediately and our home was so well taken care of too.”
“Kim was amazing. This was our first time using Rover so we were a little hesitant. She put us at ease immediately at the meet and greet. We will definitely use her again.”
“We just had Joyce for 3 days and nights as we went on a work trip. She was perfection. The dogs were so happy (got lots of happy and tired dog pics) and she left the house spotless, too. Can’t recommend her enough. The best dog sitter we’ve ever had by far. Thank you Joyce 🙏🏽”
“I've known Magnolia for ages and can attest that she is a caring, thoughtful, and kind pet caregiver. She's taken care of our cats for years and I've recommended her to multiple friends. She is very responsible and communicative. You couldn't ask for a better pet sitter!”
About: Hello! My name is Kendall and I am a librarian who lives in the near west suburbs of Chicago. I have had pets, both cats and dogs, throughout my entire life. I currently have a 14-year-old cat named Frances who has been with me for 9 years, and she is the light of my life. I have several years of experience caring for pets, and have met clients through pet care apps, a professional pet care company by whom I was employed, and also friends and acquaintances. I have dealt with a wide variety of breeds, sizes, and ages of dogs, and feel very comfortable caring for cats, birds, and other small pets as well. I would love to help you care for your furry friend! I am available on weekends, early mornings and late in evenings. I work full time but have a flexible schedule, so I can also potentially make availability during the daytime on week days. I understand that every pet owner has their own preferences and routines that work for them, and I am glad to give each pet the individual attention that they deserve. I follow instructions thoroughly while also maintaining a sense of alertness and adaptability in case unexpected issues arise.
“If you need someone reliable, experienced, and caring to take care of your dog, look no further than Katelyn. She is one of the only people I trust to watch my dog and she’s truly the best. My dog has pretty significant health issues and Katelyn has no problem giving him oral meds, insulin injections, and eye drops. When he’s with her I never have to worry, and I know that he’s well taken care of and loved. She also has two dogs of her own and has extensive experience fostering dogs of all shapes and sizes. I simply cannot recommend her enough!”
“How reassuring it is to have Dorothy take care of my dog. He's an older lab and does things at his own pace and Dorothy is loving and patient with him. You can tell that she enjoys him as much as he enjoys her. Since she often works from home, he feels comfortable having her around. She even found a way to easily give him his meds. She also took care of a neighbor's cat and they got along great. Highly recommended.”
“April is responsive, personable, and friendly. She stayed in our home and took great care of our cat and dog, who can be anxious and high-strung at times. We enjoyed getting pictures and updates while we were away. Highly recommend!”
“Rylee was the first Rover sitter that I've had stay with Brita who I felt totally comfortable with. She followed instructions, asked good questions, and sent regular updates. Would definitely hire her again.”
“Damon (Tanya) is a caring and attentive individual. She helps me around the house and takes care of the family cat Coco. She is very affectionate with Coco and takes care of all his needs! She is also taking care of a neighbor's dog and is doing a splendid job! She gives their dog 4 walks a day and has a great time. She is very dependable and hardworking!”
“Elizabeth was great - she took good care of our house and dogs. Sent lots of pictures, and communicated well throughout the stay and the booking process. We will look for chances to book again in the future.”
“Caroline did overnight pet sitting at our house for our yellow Labrador Retriever, Reese, and two cats, Arthur and Alfred for a week while we were away.She did a good job, and all of our pets appeared well-cared for and happy upon our return. She communicated well and sent us pictures. We will have her pet sit again and recommend her.”
About: In lieu of getting pets of my own, I’m hoping others will give me the opportunity to share my love of caring for and communicating with animals. Pet sitting and dog walking also seem like a great way to be more community-oriented! I consult from home, so this helps me better structure my day. There may be occasions where a meeting keeps me from having the same exact schedule daily, but if flexibility isn’t an issue, I’m available on every weekday. Besides providing care according to a client’s requests, I believe pets are excellent communicators. I seek to make sure they trust me and can expect a good time whenever I’m around.
“Cecilee is very dependable and loves dogs/ cats etc. She loves long walks with our dog Janie. She is open for most type of pet helping from home watching To vet visit drives or day walks. A true animal lover.”
