Win is so kind, responsible and cares about your pets. She does her job so well! This was my first time using Rover and had to find someone kind of last minute to look after our lab with 3 drop in visits per day and one morning visit the next day. Mary and I had a meet and greet and went over everything asap. She is so responsive! After care started I can’t tell you what a relief it was to see Mary’s drop in notes and pics of my doggo smiling with her. Thank you so much Mary and thank you Rover for creating such a slick platform to find pet care!

Our bloodhounds always take a while to warm up to new people but Jerry was very patient with them and they warmed up pretty quick. You can tell he is a dog person with how he interacts with them. He gave reports and pictures at every visit. Fantastic experience especially since this is our first time using Rover. Glad to have found someone who we can trust with our pups.

Juli went above and beyond every visit with our dog. It was obvious just how much she cares with every photo and message she sent during her drop in. I will definitely be asking her to take care of Hope again in the future.

Christy’s done an amazing job with our fur baby! Our baby was adopted, and didn’t have the best start in life. Christy is great about respecting his needs and understanding that things really need to be at his pace. He really enjoys his time with his new BFF, Christy! And she makes things less stressful for me & my spouse as well!

Tara is amazing! The detailed check-in reports, fantastic photos, and her ability to woo even our little, timid baby were more than we ever expected. Our 3 girls were so well taken care of we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation and we cannot thank her enough. We trust her implicitly with our most precious loves and will plan our vacations around her schedule! Thank you, Tara!

Kallie is a reliable and knowledgeable dog sitter. She asked great questions during our meet and greet so that she could understand how to best care for our dog. She was excellent at communicating and punctual with our booking. Our dog Holly is typically shy around new people and would bark at them but she did not bark at her for this first booking, which says a lot! We will definitely be rebooking Kallie again!

Teresa did an awesome job watching our little zoo crew. Our bigger dogs seemed to really enjoy spending time with her and were happy and healthy when we got home. Unfortunately, our smaller dog seemed to have a hard time warming up (she’s never been away from us, so I’m not too surprised) but Teresa did what she could to accommodate her and help her feel cozy and safe. We would definitely recommend and would be happy to have her hang out with our crew again!

We recently needed to try drop in checks since our male tends to mark at other homes- not great for other home sitting! We reached out to Romy. I have to say, wonderful communication, on time and very caring and personal with our dog and cat visits. We felt safe that they were home, comfortable, and in loving care. We would definitely choose Romy again!

Tobi was able to accommodate my drop in sitting needs on very short notice, and she did an excellent job. One of my dogs is a bit slow with developing comfort with strangers, so it was nice to get progress reports and photos following each visit! Additionally, there was a maintenance issue with my house which needed immediate attention and Tobi quickly notified me so that I could arrange for someone to come and take care of it. I recommend Tobi and will plan to use her services again!

About: As a passionate animal lover, I've had many pets growing up. Most of them were cats, but 13 years ago I met my dog, Tasja. She has been reactive, more so in her younger years. Training, exercise, mental stimulation, and consistency were important to help sooth her reactivity. It wasn't always easy, but I've learned a lot! I’m a fairly calm person around animals, especially when first meeting them. I have a decent understanding of their body language, and a lot of that is due to not only working with my dog, but also from working at a vet clinic. Working at a vet clinic in the kennels was one of the most rewarding jobs I have had to date and taught me a lot about how to handle and care for different temperaments/ages. I’m available most week days from 11am-3:30pm. I try to keep my calendar on Rover as updated as I can. I’m unavailable on weekends and some major holidays. Safety and trust are two of my biggest priorities while caring for your animals. On walks, I remain observant of my surroundings, the body language of your pup, and use positive reinforcement. I keep my demeanor calm, especially around reactive/nervous dogs. I‘ll also have water, treats, and doggy bags with me. In your home, I respect your space. I re-fill water bowls and am adamant about making sure the door is locked behind me when I leave.

Sam did an outstanding job taking care of our two dogs, Missy and Nola. From the moment she arrived, we felt confident in her ability to look after our furry family members. She was punctual, responsible, and incredibly attentive to their needs. Missy and Nola were happy and well-cared for when we returned. We appreciated the regular updates and photos that put our minds at ease. Sam’s love for animals truly shines through in her work. We highly recommend her for anyone in need of a reliable and caring dog sitter! Thank you, Sam! Best, Steve

About: Our family of 3 have had many years caring for dogs. Krystal works from home as an independent contractor, working a few hours each day. She always had a dog to help take care of when growing up. Brian works with the Tacoma Fire Dept and is home many days of the week. He has helped with foster dogs for years as a young adult. Both of us will be available to give your dog or cat our full attention! Our 13yo daughter spent the last 6 years helping to care for our own dog, Iden (in pictures). When she is home from school, she will help us make sure your pet is entertained. Sadly, our sweet Iden, who was a corgi/husky mix, passed away unexpectedly in Sept of 2023. While not ready to adopt another fur baby, we have lots of love to give yours, which we look forward to! We live in a 2 bedroom apartment. Our favorite pastime with our own dog was cuddling, so in continuing with that tradition, we allow dogs/cats on our furniture. We will not leave dogs alone in our house without making sure it's okay with you! The majority of the time there will be walks and play time together. Our yard is not fenced in, yet we have tons of places to walk nearby in North Tacoma. There is also a fenced in doggie play yard within our complex. **NON-NEGOTIABLE FOR BOARDING/DAYCARE** Dogs must be fully potty trained. We also cannot take dogs who are known to bark constantly. If either of these issues arise, we may have to cancel long-term boarding and other boarding accommodations will have to be made by owner. Refunds will be given through Rover. Videos and photos will be sent regularly to ensure you know your pet is doing well. Please make sure to text us if you'd like more! If needed, we have water/food bowls for use, which are always disinfected after each use. Please visit the link below to fill out the appropriate questionnaire so we can get to know your pet better: https://linktr.ee/winnfamilyrover Our family looks forward to providing a loving, safe, and fun environment for your pup or kitty! Send us a message and we can chat about any specifics :) For $20 off your first booking with us, use code KRYSTW3846 Krystal, Brian & Kalli 🐾 Krystal works part-time from home every day as an independent contractor, with flexible hours. Brian works in the Tacoma Fire Dept, with his schedule, he will be off many days and available to help. We look forward to getting out of the house more and playing with your dog or kitty! We will provide a safe, loving, and fun environment for your pup or kitty. If staying for the day, we will spend it playing with favorite toys, and going out on walking adventures. We will be sure to discuss which areas we will take your dog for walks, and ask if there are any areas too far away.

Alannah is amazing! She came over the day before to meet Miles. Miles can be very shy but she was ver calm and offered him treats and he started warming up to her rather quickly. He can be stubborn on his walks, but she worked with him and was able to get him going. I could tell when she first came over to meet Miles that she had a very special connection to animals. I will defiantly be using her again!
