“Melissa watched my 2 dogs and cat for me while my family and I went on vacation for 2 weeks. She sent me daily pics of my pets playing with her son; how cute! They really enjoyed their time there and were well taken care of! I have referred numerous colleagues for her pet services and will most definitely be using her again! Thank you Melissa for taking such wonderful care of my babies! See you next time!”
“Stella had so much fun with Kaitlyn and her boys. I got so many updates and photos that had me cracking up all day. There were times she was guarding her youngest while he slept. Too funny. We were from out of town and Kaitlyn was so understanding about us coming early and picking up Stella later and she didn't want to leave. She was having too much fun. If we are ever in the area we would definitely book again. Thanks!!!”
“Carissa is a wonderful lady who has owned pets for the last 20 yrs ,,,,they have all been from rescue groups and she treats them like children , very loving !! She is currently fostering a little Boston Terrier for a rescue group ( " Speak for the Unspoken " ) out of Columbus, Ohio. He came from an Amish Puppy Mill and has thrived in her care. He is very loving and she has done a wonderful job w/taking care of him. He just loved her other dog, Gus , so they got along famously . He is getting adopted in a few weeks, the couple who met him fell in love with him instantly. This is the type of person Carissa is , helping those who need help and have no voice. If you would consider having her watch your furbabies, I can tell you without a doubt they will be thoroughly loved and cared for !!”
“Bambi had a great stay for daycare with Haley!”
About: The well being and happiness of dogs is my goal. I understand the challenge of finding trustworthy people to provide the same care you would for your dog when you need it most. When I first started rover years ago, I met an owner and her two dogs who I frequently took care of for years until she sadly moved out of state. Because my time was occupied with her dogs, I couldn’t offer my time to others through this site which is why my profile has been inactive for some time. . I’ve worked at two different dog shelters, a boarding facility, and I volunteer for a local dog shelter. Im working on getting my dog training certification also. I’ve been successful in understanding dog behavior in different environments, and I especially love working with dogs who struggle with behavioral issues. I currently have a 14 year old dog who’s my best friend, my whole world. I adopted him when he was roughly 3 months old. I never board him, I’m super paranoid and picky if anyone watches him for me. So I get it if you feel the same! I do work full time currently, but I don’t have many obligations outside of work. I prefer to stay active as often as possible, and will make sure your dog gets the exercise it needs! My weekends are usually open, and I’m available during the week after 5pm. Every dog is different, I will accommodate their needs in any way I can. From high energy puppies to calm seniors and everything in between, their comfort is most important. I prefer to keep the dogs daily routine in check, and minimize any stress for them.
“Sienna is so sweet and caring, always goes the extra mile! She loves animals of all shapes and sizes and will make sure your fur babies are well taken care of so you can have peace of mind while you're out 😌”
“Although Avi recently took care of our dog and cat while we were gone for a week, he’s been our pet sitter for a while (which included a feisty gecko!) When we came home, both animals were so happy to see us but also sad to see Avi go. In the amount of time my husband and I witnessed him interacting with our beloved pets, he was very sweet and warm toward them. Even when our dog was initially barking protectively, Avi took his time, went slow, and gave positive reinforcement the whole time to gain trust. We love that we know we can count on Avi to keep their routines and keep them happy and cared for when we go away for any length of time!”
“Highly recommend! My pup never had a sitter before and she felt very comfortable with her! Got into her car and everything, Alexis also sent me numerous texts with pictures to ease my mind.”
About: I have had two small dogs that were the light of my life! Currently, I have Tanna my rescue chihuahua. I watch my sister’s pit bull (Dawn), my brother’s large dog (Maggie) and my friend’s medium and small dog (Cooper with Tanna). I have worked with young children for 16 years as an elementary school counselor, I am great with positive reinforcement. It is my passion to help children and animals thrive and feels safe! I love to go on walks and play with dogs! I would be honored to provide care, cuddles and fun with your dog! If you book me for house sitting, I wanted to let you know that I am allergic to down/feathers. I can bring my own bed linens to accommodate this allergy. I am currently retired and volunteer at The Butler Institute of American Art one day a week for 3 hours. This leaves me open to provide your pet with all the love, time and attention they need. I would never let any harm come to an animal! I have a large back yard, live close to several parks, for walkies and I have tons of energy to give towards the happiness of your pet. I feel like pets are family.
“Shannon is compassionate, caring, organized, and resourceful. I would recommend her to anyone as a pet caregiver just on her lifetime of experience of growing up with and caring for her own pets. Then you add her years of professional experience in attention to detail costumer service, from babysitting to event coordinating.”
“Mia is a loving, compassionate pet owner, herself. She has also worked for a doggie daycare center and was praised often for her love and attention she gave the animals. She seems to have a way with all animals; they love her and she loves them. She is also a very reliable, responsible, and honest person. She is one of the few people I would trust to care for my dog.”
“McKenzie is a dog mom of 1 to a golden named Rover. Safe to say that McKenzie is the best dog mom and loves all dogs unconditionally. She is the person you want taking care/walking your dog when you have a long day at work.”
About: I've worked in pet insurance for 4 years and have multiple points of contact if any concerns arise with a pet. I can administer insulin and give medication and follow a strict schedule. I work from home and my schedule is very flexible therefore I can attend to your pets needs right away if they need something. My available days will alternate every other week but we can schedule something. I am in a pet friendly apartment building if I would bring your pet to my residence as long as the larger animals can handle stairs. I can perform any function in the owner's home that is needed by me for the pet with no wait time of the pet's needs.
“Ms Katie Miller is a very responsible and caring person. She owns a St Bernard , Bertha, who is doing great at 12 years of age, which is old for a dog of that size. Bertha is always clean, well fed and well mannered even around new people and new animals. Katie always displays concern and the willingness to do what should be done for her critters. She has raised her daughter to be a caring and responsible young woman.”
About: I’ve taken care of animals of all shapes and sizes my entire life! I have loved and cared for big dogs, little dogs, cats and several rodents! I currently have a full time job that is 8-5 but I’m working from home so as long as I have access to wifi, I can snuggle and care for your pet all day I make sure to follow a feeding schedule of the clients choice and keep a full water bowl. I make sure pets have the chance to go potty every 4hours and even play with them! In the afternoon I like to take them for a walk and give them lots of love
“Jessica has a heart for dogs. Dogs have a heart for Jessica. Dogs trust her and respond to Jessica . Never late. Responsible. Respectful. Kind”
