Matt watched Phoebo, my shih tzu yorkie mix, while I was on vacation. He was so easy to communicate with, timely in responses, and friendly! Phoebo had a great time with Matt and Matt provided regular updates and pictures to let me see how things were going! I will definitely be using his services again the next time I need to leave town!

Nivia has been great. My dog loves her. For my dog to be such a high energy dog, I worry about a sitter being able to handle her but Nivia seems to handle it well which is very comforting as an owner.

Michael’s visits have been super helpful and I know my dog loves them. Michael is always on time and communicates very well prior/during/and after his visits with Max. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for services. He has been coming to my house over the last several weeks to give my dog, Max the opportunity to go for a walk and spend some time outdoors while I’m at work.

Gordon is the best and most responsible sitter. I would trust him to take care of all animals. He is very communicative and made sure our pet was loved and taken care of while I was away. He is able to handle all types of animals and recommend him to anyone who needs a sitter.

We had 2 extra cats in the house over the Christmas holiday, and Anastasia & Ivan took care of all 4! One evening, they spent over an hour here because a cat who needed medicine was hiding from them. I am impressed with their dedication and the fact that they found her in the end!

May 11th 2024 I usually don’t do reviews but I just had to do one for this Lovely Woman Katie. She came highly recommend thru a friend of a friend . Let me tell you she is an amazing pet sitter/ Dog walker. My wife and I travel a good bit for work and we use Katie to take care of our 2 precious Fur Babies. She lets them have sleep overs at her place. Our dogs love her to death as she treats them like her own pets. A Very trusting and caring person she is as she comes into our home as well to take care of our babies and never any problems. I would highly recommend Katie for all your pet needs❤️

I contacted Steph at the last minute to do check ins for my newly adopted Dachshund so I could run some errands (right now he barks when I'm not home :( ) and she was awesome. I will definitely be contacting her again for dog walks and check ins in the future. Glad I found Rover and her!

Al was great! He helped us last minute over the holidays and really saved me a lot of trouble. My dog fell in love with him and was bringing him toys and leaning all up on him in under a minute. I got pictures and peace of mind. I definitely recommend Al.

Just the most communicative and helpful person! Did an incredible job while we were out of town and happily took an additional day and coordinated with someone else to exchange keys to accommodate our needs. Went above and beyond to make sure our pets and home were taken care of. So great to work with!

I booked Rivera a short time before a week long business trip. I had never used a dog nanny before. I live with two Dogs and one cat. Cat is a cat/no problem. Dogs are finicky and only pay attention to me. I didn’t know how they would act with another caretaker. I was so worried no one would be able to care for my beloved dogs. I asked Rivera to come by for a pretrip visit and the dogs just barked but surprisingly let her be in their space. Their attitude didn't phase Rivera at all. She knew just what to do! I left for my trip and she visited 3 times a day. Rivera sent txts, photos,and videos to me every visit. I could track my dogs well being and they were warming up to her! What I really like was she let the dogs be comfortable in their home. She took care of food, water meds. I could see each visit they were warming up to her and becoming more comfortable. Truly the best way to win them over. By the time I reurned home the dogs were good with their new friend Rivera. I know I can trust their care to Rivera. Nothing happens fast in this world but things done right in due time can be the perfect way. I would not hesitate as reccomending Rivera to you for your pets.

Mandi was absolutely the best with caring for our tuxedo cat Frenchy while we were gone for a week. All of her updates were detailed and her photos were great! She went above and beyond in giving us peace of mind knowing that our cat was well taken care of. I will not hesitate to use Mandi again and we will recommend her to all of my family & friends in the area. This was the first time we used Rover and am very impressed with it. Thanks again Mandi and “Go Pack Go ?”!

About: Hello, My name is Anna. I'm 34 years old. I'm outgoing, friendly and kind. I have owned pets growing up. I owned a poodle that now was passed down to my cousin, due to having a newborn it was difficult for me to keep her. I also owned a rabbit. So yes I am Pet friendly. I hope that I can be a great candidate for your adorable pet. My Work Schedule is flexible I work close to home I get one hour break so when pets are boarding I have that afternoon time to walk them and check up on them.Weekends are also great since I'm off from work. I work Monday through Friday from 9am-7pm. So weekend works best for me. I have a fenced backyard and pets are also Allowed to stay inside my house as well. I also don't mind taking care of pets in clients home as well.

Lori did an amazing job taking care of our cat during our two-week vacation! Her regular visits and photo updates gave us great peace of mind and our cat quickly took to her new friend. We would definitely recommend Lori to others and our cat would be thrilled to be in her care again in the future!

About: look no further for your boarding needs! I started working with dogs steadily a few years ago when the covid pandemic struck our country, and at that time we were having our baby. I noticed a dog walking position on Indeed, and decided to give it a try, knowing I have always loved dogs and animals in general, and began working for a small startup that I have since left, and with new experience and knowledge I decided to give it a try on my own, and have loved every moment since. Our little family will care for your pup like no other. When your pet is in our home, they will be adored by my daughter a gentle and playful 4 yr old, and will have attention and care as if they were our very own family member! We have some wonderful clients and are looking to expand and perhaps create a pet brand worthy of being called a family. We hope to create lasting bonds with your pup so they feel at home even when you must leave them with us for a bit. Feel free to ask any questions and look us up on Instagram @lovepackpc We have a few clients but are looking to expand our boarding roster! We usually sit for our clients when they go on a trip for business or a vacation, and some of our clients have multiple dogs. Our days usually begin at 7-8am, with breaks at 1pm, 5pm, and end around 930-10 pm with a last walk of the night. Any preferences will be taken into account on a case-by-case basis so we can provide the ultimate comfortable stay for your pet. we understand that a pup can feel anxious and even sad when boarding, so we work to minimize that inevitable feeling of missing you! We have plenty of room, and your pup will have roaming privileges unless you say otherwise. They will hang with the family and most of the time our pup friends as we call them tend to laze about and get comfortable, or play. We also make regular park visits. Some clients prefer to provide crates in order to keep their pet feeling secure in a familiar place, please let us know of any preferences or concerns you have, but we have one available for regular sized dogs that may prefer it.

About: I have a true love for dogs and all animals. I have dog sat for family and friends and enjoy every minute of it. When I finally live on my own the first thing I’m going to do is get a dog of my own! I love taking the dogs on walks, playing with them, and of course snuggling. I am available any day of the week and have a very flexible schedule. I have grown up with dogs my whole life, therefore I really know how to care for them. Having a dog makes life so much better and a lot more fun. Having the opportunity to care for dogs is like a dream come true! I hope I can be the sitter, walker, and caregiver you’re looking for! I work from home so I’m available pretty much all day everyday! Weekends are up in the air but I try to keep my calendar up to date as best as I can :) We can always discuss pricing if needed! I live in a house with a fenced in yard that is perfect for all doggos to run around and play! If your dog loves being outside my yard will definitely be their paradise haha
