“Second time booking with Lauren, and she has been great! I appreciate the photo updates and notes especially with an active cat. Also with coordinating on shorter notice from my side. Will definitely book her in the future.”
About: I have been around dogs my whole life and am yearning for my dog time! I have even trained dogs in high school with my grandfather. I am a teacher and follow a school based schedule. I am free after 3 during the week, free on the weekends, and wide open during the holidays. I have 2 cats of my own and believe that enrichment is very important! I know how important peace of mind is and I can offer that with both dogs and cats!
“Ada is a wonder person and your pets would adore her as a caregiver! Ada is very gentle and has years of experience taking care of pets of all backgrounds and special needs. She assisted me with my elderly dog and made sure they had the best treatment. Ada is very responsible and made sure my dog had her medication at the proper time. She also kept my anxiety little dog company at all times to make her feel safe and at home. I highly recommend Ada as a caregiver! She’s passionate, hardworking, and extremely reliable to provide whatever attention your pet may need!”
“Kim has a talent for finding and connecting with the personalities of peoples pets. There isn’t anybody I’d trust more with our pets. Peace of mind!”
About: Worked as a veterinary assistant for 3 years. Have had a dog for the past 9 years. I got him when he was a small puppy. Having a dog myself, it’s just apart of my day to day routine so taking care of him so it comes second nature. Always loved beings dog dad. Lots of love. Lots of water. Routine diet times. Lots of walks and playing in the park. Assertive but always give the dog the opportunity to respond to commands never forcefully. Gentle approach. Always treated with kindness and love.
“Marie was my next door neighbor until recently, and she regularly hosted my cats when they went outside for the day. She was very communicative about them, and they loved going to see her. She also served as a neighborhood contact for my sons when they stayed at the house to take care of the cats in our absence. She has good energy and I think she would make a great Rover caregiver.”
“I have a very energetic and nervous golden doodle, named Iroh, that needed to be watched for a weekend I was out of town. I was worried to leave him with just anyone, but Xochitl looked after him to the same degree as I would. She is a close friend and I felt reassured leaving Iroh with her since she has her own high energy dog. She followed all feeding, walking, and brushing (Iroh has a thick coat) instructions attentively. She anticipated his needs and kept constant contact with me if anything seemed to be off with him. Since then, I have left Iroh with her a couple times to dog sit for me during the day. After seeing how comfortable Iorh felt staying with Xochitl, I would definitely recommend Xochitl to care for anyone's pets with the same care and attention they give themselves.”
“Ricky did a great job with my cat when I had a last minute trip. He’s quick to respond, communicated when he’d be arriving and throughout the stay, sending me updates and photos.”
“Tami was great! She dropped in once a day to take care of our cat, and he loved playing with her. Tami sent lots of pictures and kept us updated on how he was doing.”
About: Raised in a household full of dogs and cats, caring for animals is second nature to me. I even started my own cat-sitting business in college! I’d be thrilled to look after your fuzzy friend. I have a flexible work from home schedule, so I’m happy to help out whenever possible! I also love getting my steps in throughout SF. I always prioritize the well being of the animal that I’m caring for! Their health, safety, and happiness is my biggest concern. I love animals, so they tend to trust and love me back.
About: I grew up with a yellow lab in my family and she’s now 13 years old. I’ve also dog sat for friends and family over the years. I love dogs but it’s not the right time for me to get my own yet—that’s why I’m here! I’m available on the weekdays after 5:30 pm and free most weekends. I work remotely so I am also able to play and take dogs out for short breaks during the workday. During doggy day care or boarding, I usually take dogs on walks around 3x a day (unless they’re too tired). This is a longer walk in the morning and two shorter walks. I also take dogs outside at least every 3-4 hours, more if needed. I don’t leave dogs home alone during day care or boarding. If I need to step out, I will take your pup with me! I have no pets or kids in the house and live right by a dog park! My house is fairly spacious for an SF apartment so big dogs or crates wouldn’t be an issue. I also only day care / sit one dog at a time. This is so that I can give my full attention to your dog and avoid any potential reactivity between dogs. Note: I live up one flight of stairs without an elevator. It’s about 35 stair steps.
“Lawrence took great care of our dog Mia while we were on a long day trip. We also had to reschedule the trip and Lawrence was flexible with us. Mia clearly enjoyed his company based on the photos. We will definitely be using him again!”

“Lena went above and beyond for my fur babies. A true dog person with great instincts. My dogs were so happy when I came home, I think they’ve made a lifelong friend 😂 Will definitely be hiring Lena again soon!!!”
“I cannot recommend Catrena enough. She took exceptional care of our animals and home while we were out of state this summer. Her friendly demeanor immediately put us at ease and it's evident that she genuinely loves animals and ours also adore her. We will undoubtedly book with Catrena again.”
About: I have a loving mix terrier at home, had him since he was a puppy and currently 1 year and 6 month. Taking care of him has had its challenges at first but it’s all in knowing his personality, like any pets! And of course giving him lots of love and patient haha. Before him I’ve also cat sat and dog sat for short periods of time and it was really fun! Hopefully I get a chance to meet your pups! I currently do work part time so I figured it will be a fun little side hustle and a distraction, to get to experience a little walk with your furry ones. For my dogs and the few dogs I’ve sat for, I found having snacking available is a good call, having an area where they can let loose and play with, earning trust by petting them, rewarding them when they did something positive and reminding them im here to comfort them!
About: Spent the past year sharing my space and time with some awesome furry pals—both cats and dogs. It's been a journey filled with wagging tails, cozy cuddles, and the occasional paw-shake. From playful sessions to comforting naps, I've learned the art of tailoring care to each unique personality. Can't wait to welcome more fuzzy friends into the mix! I'm currently working on my business full-time which gives me a lot of flexibility and time to play with your fur babies! I'm pretty flexible except for Wednesdays and Sundays. I can be available after 6 pm those two days. In My Home: In my cozy space, your pet becomes part of the family! They'll enjoy a stress-free environment with designated areas for play, rest, and exploration. Daily walks, interactive playtime, and personalized attention ensure they feel right at home. In Your Home: For in-home pet care, I strive to maintain a consistent routine to minimize disruption. Whether it's feeding, playtime, or walks, I tailor my services to your pet's preferences. Your home remains their safe haven, and I provide the companionship and care they need in familiar surroundings. My goal is to create a seamless and comfortable experience, ensuring your pet receives the love and attention they deserve, whether in my home or yours.
“Kelly was really generous to help during Robert Redford's first week at home while I was at work. She went the extra mile to take him out to the dog park and keep him company all week! He's almost potty trained now indoors and out and is feeling a bit more acclimated. Thanks Kelly!”
About: I am used to being around dogs, which includes walking, feeding, administering meds and there is no greater enjoyment than seeing their smiling faces! I will make sure to treat your pet as if it were my own! I am able to commute and work on your pets schedule. I am currently in school and I have free time during the week and the weekends and I would be able to adjust quickly if I am needed for certain times. I am SF based and am able to commute easily, as well as any transportation that may be needed since I also drive. I live in a residences/office space type of building which is pretty safe and you have to get buzzed in twice to enter. I have a cat that I have currently in the house that I raised since she was a kitten and she is very sweet. I am home no later than 7pm on M/W/F and I am home the whole day on the weekend and T/THU.
“Kayla has been watching my pets for years now and I will never choose anyone else but her when I’m out of town! The care she gives my three girls is unmatched and the level of detail she takes when making their food, taking them on their daily walks, and making sure their playing space is clean and ready when they go to bed gives me the peace of mind I need to enjoy my time away and know my pets are safe and taken care of.”
