“Jordan is an excellent care giver, she loves dogs and cats! She always want to help any animal she can. She’s very loving and will do anything for the animal. She’s the most trust worthy and responsible person I know. She’s capable with any responsibility that is given to her and will always improve to be the best person for you and your pet”

“Max loved Jennifer!”
“Kira has taken care of my human nervous dog with such great care and compassion! High recommend.”
“Analiese is a lover of animals. All of our animals absolutely adore her. She kind, gentle, and caring. She's never met an animal she didn't like. Our dogs love to go on walks with her. And our cats curl up in her lap for cuddles. She's very responsible. She always cleans up after the animals and makes sure they are well taken care of.”
“Madison is an awesome pet sitter. I have a chocolate lab puppy who has tons of energy. She keeps him entertained and keeps me up to date when I’m gone. I can always count on her. My trips are usually unexpected and she’s fast to respond and take care of my dog. My dog loves her like a second mom. I wouldn’t chose anyone else to take care of my puppy.”
About: Hi! My name is Kierstyn. I'm an experienced vet tech with knowledge of how to handle healthy pets, medically complex pets that require medications, and emergencies if they were to happen. From my work experience I know that some pets do much better in their own home rather than in a boarding facility or having to be watched at someone else's home and I would love to be able to allow the pet for feel more safe and comfortable by allowing them to stay in their own home. I currently work full time. If you prefer for me to stay in your home then I'll let your pet out/walk/ check on them and feed them in the mornings and in the evenings. I am typically able to check on them during the middle of the day and let them out/ walk them then too however sometimes work does not allow this. If I do drop ins I will do them early in the morning, before 7:30, if possible then I will check on them between 12:00pm and 1:30pm, and again between 5:30 and 6:30 pm. Please let me know if you'd like me to contact you if I am running late in the evenings, this will typically not be a problem but since I work in the veterinary field I cannot guarantee that I wouldn't run late due to emergency situations. All care would be provided at your home. This is because I feel like most pets are most comfortable in their own space. I will ask for detailed instructions on how you'd like your pet to be let out/ walked and specific feeding/ medicating instructions. I will be happy to stay in your home or just do drop ins throughout the day, whichever you prefer. If you are leaving for 5 days or more please request at least a week before, I only care for 1 house hold at a time to ensure that I can give them the care they deserve. Please know, if you'd like me to stay in your home while you're away, that I do have pets of my own and may be required to leave, after caring for yours in the evening, to go check on my own animals before returning. If you plan to leave for only overnight and only require 1-2 drop ins then please request 3 days before or contact if it is due to an emergency and I will try my best to accommodate you. This would be a drop in only to walk/ feed/ check on pets and I would not be staying overnight in your home. I will require your vet's information and please tell me about any chronic medical condition (i.e heart disease, cushing, diabetes, etc.). I will require consent for me to take your pet to a vet incase of an emergency situation, you would of course be contacted immediately. If an emergency does arise you will required to pay all vet cost at time of vet services or as soon as you are able to be in contact me if you do not have service for any reason.
About: I personally enjoy spending time with our canine friends, they’re truly amazing souls who teach us actions are what matters most than words.. Dogs can sense our energy, which is why every time I am around a pet, I always seem to connect with them as I am always a calm person. I am so grateful for my Cooper boy, who I actually met on Rover and was one of my first clients. I fell in love with him, and coincidentally he was being rehomed. Therefore I took him in and our bond just grew stronger. We recently lost our beautiful Chango who is the white and black spotty baby you. For him, I choose to love and respect our fur babies at all times and advocate for them even more. I am also a nerd when it comes to caring the natural way for our babies. I am a big raw food feeder and advocate for the right nutrients for our pets. I am experienced in the handling of them as well. Best believe, your pet will be in extremely safe hands and experienced as well. I enjoy doing physical work, and staying physically active throughout my week, which is why this job would be perfect for me. Walking has become a part of my daily routine that I have enjoyed lately and I always enjoy walking my dog I have a closed porch in where I can keep any pets in their crates, or if they are trained, then out freely. My home is completely fenced , & I have a large backyard for dogs to run around in.I also have them on leash at all times.
“Jayla is our go to pet sitter when needed! She is responsible and loves on our fur baby so well! We always can leave town with a peace of mind knowing Jayla is there for our pup!”
Gwendolyn & Coralann C.
“Gwendolyn and Corlann are amazing! They are the only people my husband and I have used on Rover and have nothing but positive things to say. We always get detailed updates and even tips to help with training our pup. They’re flexible with their schedule and have been able to come on a moments notice. We love them!”
About: I have plenty of experience with handling and caring for animals as I have one large dog, a rabbit, and 3 cats which are equally cared for. I'd love to open my care to other people's pets as it's something I'm pretty comfortable and trained in doing. I've had pets my entire life and have a pretty strong passion about animals and can care for any range of breeds or size without issue. I'm very flexible with scheduling and timing as I have a lot of free time and can do pretty much any timing required even most last minutes if needed. Im open to all the services for pet care on here and really do make it my priority for who's pet I'm caring for. I'm currently work at an animal hospital on a morning- early afternoon shift but would be home afternoon-early morning aside from short weekend shifts from 2-5 hours I am gone. Otherwise, I am home and home all day tuesdays and thursdays. I follow each one's pet routine specific to the owner's request and needs. I let your pet warm up to my home first and make sure to follow the specific care needed per each pet according to the owner's directions. Crates are better for the dog to feel comfortable when I am on my morning shifts at work but not necessary!
“Took care of my dog and was exactly on time. I would definitely recommend.”
“Kylee was amazing! We really appreciate the time she took to come by and introduce herself to our extremely excitable Pup. 70lbs of pure energy and she handled him like a champ. Highly recommend, and will be using her in the future.”
Kaylea Jeanne R.
“Ms. Kaylee is absolutely wonderful! She is a kind, gentle, yet an appropriately assertive soul. She has confidence and a variety of dog handling skills and experiences. I believe she is very responsible and reliable in caring for my two dogs, Pearl and Chloie.”
About: I can offer your dog a home away from home! I have a large fenced yard for lots of play and daily exercise and my own pup loves to make new friends. You can bring whatever items from home that will make your little pal feel comfortable. I will treat your sweet doggie like my own. Dogs have complete access to my home as long as they are housebroken. I love to walk and will take your dog on at least one long walk per day every day they are in my care. I know how stressful it can be to leave your furry friend behind and I will do everything I can to make him or her feel comfortable while you are away from them. I work full time but from home with very flexible schedule. Plenty of time for play breaks and walks. Happy to accommodate any special feeding needs I have a fenced yard and I love to play with the pups during the day! Very flexible to your requirements and whatever the needs of your fur baby are!
“We love Leah! She is amazing with our two doodles and they love her so much. She is is always on time, she cleans up after the dogs, plays with them, cuddles with them and loves on them. We feel extra safe leaving her with our doodles because Leah is trained and educated on all animals, so if they get sick they we know they are in good hands. She has stayed at our house with the dogs and she keeps them on their doogy schedule for feeding and walking and keeps house tidy as well. She sends pictures of dogs and text to let us know that everyone is safe and happy. Leah is the absolute best!”
