“Jason was reliable and attentive to our dog while we were away. He sent us pictures and updates after each visit which was greatly appreciated. He’s very professional and is a great person to care for your family pet!”
“Liz is always enthusiastic and accommodating—a pleasure to work with—and we appreciate the way she relates to and understands our dogs’ individual needs. Five stars!”
About: Some people are people persons, I am a dog person. A highlight of my day is taking care of my dog's needs: bathroom trips, walks, and feeding. I would love to help your family with your dog's needs. The first thing I do when I wake up is take care of my dog. I take her to go to the bathroom and give her a treat. The end of my night is the same routine. Play time every session, multiple bathroom trips and walks are also a guarantee. Your dog will be the center of attention when I am over, there will not be a time I am not giving your dog love and attention.
“Haley has watched my kitty on multiple occasions and I have always returned home to a happy kitty. Haley is attentive, loving and cares about animals. I would highly recommend Haley to anyone who needs a reliable pet sitter.”
“As an LNA I sometimes have 12 or 16hr work days. When those come arround it’s great to have someone like Kayla to rely on to care for my baby Deet. Deet feel in love with her right away and always has a great time with Kayla. They love to go on puppy adventures which helps socialize Deet and keep her active.”
“I've known Gina for over 10 years. Over that time, I've seen her care for her beloved Ajax (who recently passed after a good, long life), as well as many friends dogs, including my own. She's caring and patient with dogs, and happy to take them out on adventures whether it be the dog park, a walk in the woods, or out and about in the world! My pup can be fearful and sensitive, and she is one of the few people I trust to take care of her when I am away. I highly recommend Gina as a sitter here on Rover.”
“Shauna did an awesome job with Percy and even sent the most adorable photos of him during their walk. She responds quickly to messages and is very professional and kind. Definitely recommend!”

“Morgan is great with animals, her mother is a dog trainer so she grew up around loving pet care! She would be a fantastic pet caregiver and would treat your pet as if it were her own, she is a very kind and gentle soul and will do her absolute best to take care of your animals.”
About: *I have no stars or reviews because the area I was living in did not have a lot of customers! Please still consider giving me a chance:)* I've taken care of dogs, cats and bunnies since I was 7. I have shelter experience as well as personal experience (family and friends) with feeding, walking, and spending time with pets! My schedule will be updated soon but please reach out because I can likely accommodate to most times! I will be on Christmas break soon. I will ensure that your pets stay safe on a leash when not in your home. My own dogs are escape artists so I am very familiar with keeping an eye on doors and gates. I also can crate your dog if wanted!
“You cannot go wrong with Ashley to care for your pet! She’s a dog lover who is responsible and kind, and she provides a safe, clean environment with outdoor space. Ashley is our favorite dog sitter, and if our dog could talk, she would agree with me. She is always thrilled to see Ashley!”

About: Hi! I'm Tara. I'm an animal lover, experienced pet + house sitter, and entrepreneur with the freedom to make my own hours + work from anywhere. :) That being said, you can have peace of mind knowing there will be someone caring, loving, and responsible watching over your fur babies most hours of the day! I often form instantaneous bonds with animals within our first meeting, and will always treat your pet as if it were my own. I enjoy interacting with them, staying active with them, and cuddling with them! I also do Reiki, so if your pets are feeling anxious at all, I can bring in some calming energy for them! My relationships with my clients and their pets are always built on trust, respect, and reliability! _____________________________________ MY STORY: I’ve been caring for pets since I was a little kid – I grew up with dogs (golden retrievers/huskies), a rabbit, hamsters, rats, goldfish, and a turtle, and would also take care of my neighbor's cats, rabbit, and ducks whenever they were away. When I started my own design + marketing business back in 2013, I decided to try pet + house sitting to help me pay my bills while I built my dreams. This turned out to be a great experience and since then, I have grown a nice little pet + house-sitting business on the side. :) I recently moved back home to the East Coast from San Diego, CA, and have started rebuilding my clientele in the Seacoast area. Over the past year and a half, my business has grown amazingly quickly, and I have had nothing but positive experiences! I feel honored and grateful to have met so many great people and their adorable pets! _____________________________________ SCHEDULE: Going into 2024, I will be working at a Healing Center in Somersworth, NH so if you're looking for housesitting, please be aware that I may be out of the house for a few hours at a time a few days a week. _____________________________________ MEET & GREETS: Meet & Greets more than 10 miles away from Somersworth are $20. Please book a 30-min drop-in and I'll adjust the price. :) _____________________________________ DOG WALKS + DROP-INS: Due to driving time + costs, I prefer to only offer drop-ins and dog walking to clients who are within a 15-minute drive from Somersworth. _____________________________________ PETS NEEDING EXTRA CARE: If you have a puppy under 6 months, a dog that needs extensive amounts of exercise, or a senior pet that needs extra attention and care, please book my Puppy Rate. _____________________________________ HOUSESITTING Non-smoking homes only (tobacco). _____________________________________ WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: Whatever you communicate with me on how to care for your pet, I will respect and follow through with.

About: I’ve taken care of dogs for the last 4 years! I’ve dog sat within my community and for friends and family! I’d be happy to be your pups new bestie! I work full time, so I can take your pup out in the middle of the day for a walk, or let them outside and hangout for a bit! I also have availability on Sundays to take pups for the day to my home. Overnights are an option but I have less availability. I don’t have a fenced in yard but I’m comfortable walking your dog on leash/ off leash in my yard, whatever you prefer! I have 1 dog, and 2 cats at home. All of which are friendly with other dogs.
“Kim is just GREAT with all animals and took care of my Dog and cats as lovingly and carefully as I do. No surprise, she has her own dogs and cats because she is a true animal lover. Beyond just making sure they were cared for she spent time playing with them and walking them. Her communication with me the entire time was great, incl a couple of pics. I couldn't be happier with her care for my loved ones. I will use her every time I get a worktrip, absolutely! 10/10”
“Colleen was such a big help! Each session she was able to walk, feed and check-in on my big guy! Tidus loved greeting her and going for a walks. Would recommend and use her again!”
