Another great experience with Crispin. She made sure the boys got their walks in between the torrential rain. She kept me updated and sent lots of photos. She also took care of the house to protect things when the rain started.

Natalie proved to be an exceptional dog and house sitter. She showed great care and patience with our shy, vocal dog, who usually takes time to trust new people. Natalie maintained consistent communication and provided regular updates throughout her stay. Upon our return, we found our home in immaculate condition. For peace of mind during your absence, I highly recommend hiring Natalie!

Natalie is great! I've had her for longer stays at my apartment and shorter check ins for quick trips and always came back to a full food bowl, clean litter box and a very happy cat. She always sends me updates and pictures to let me know how things were going and is quick to let me know of any issues. 10/10 would recommend for sure!

Daniel was great watching my two Dalmatians for four nights. Our two dogs can be a handful because they have big personalities and our male can be quite stand offish to start. Daniel was not deterred and took it slow to gain their trust and affection. He took them for walks every day too.

Bella is such a caring dog walker. She was patient with our dogs while they got used to her. Now they get so excited when they see her. She goes above and beyond to ensure the dogs have a fun time. She truly cares for our dogs. We would highly recommend her as a dog walker/sitter.

Justin did a great job looking after our dog Quinn while we were out of town. He provided periodic updates and pictures and we could tell Quinn was in good hands when we got home. Will definitely ask Justin to watch Quinn again for future trips

Iris is awesome. She took care of my three dachshunds one of which is a four month old puppy. She sent me daily updates with pictures . I think my house was cleaner when I got home than when I left. I would highly recommend Iris.

It was a pleasure to have Danielle stay with our two cats while we were away for the weekend. We really appreciated the level of care she gave our kitties and the updates she sent in the morning and evening. She quickly befriended both cats and it was a relief to know they were in good hands while we were gone. We look forward to having her stay again and would absolutely recommend her for house and pet sitting!

About: I grew up in an animal rescue family (the 2 pugs in my photos are my pups at home). I’ve worked with several seniors dogs that require specialized accommodations and care. I’ve fostered a variety of dogs ranging from puppies to elders. I’m currently pursuing a career in animal care. I’m a student / athlete that pursues physical activities in my free time. During my sports off season I’m extremely flexible to most scheduling needs, job requests, walk duration, pace, and terrain to accommodate to any needs for your pets. I am absolutely adaptive to any dog care related needs. Animal care has always been a priority in my household. I’m easy to work with and experienced in dog handling. I’m detail oriented and effective at following any specific care instructions. I’m very responsive so never hesitate to reach out. I look forward to working with you and your animal.

We're so grateful to have connected with Anne via Rover. She was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. Professional, prompt in communication, follow up and most of all she took amazing care of Yumi! She kept in regular contact with updates and left our home immaculate. Anne goes the extra mile and it shows. She truly cares about animals. I'd recommend her and have her pet sit for us again in a heartbeat!

This was the first time leaving our new rescue dog and we were a little nervous about how he would handle it, but Jessica was terrific. She had great questions during our first meet n greet and was super flexible with our last minute travel schedule. She texted photos of our pup throughout our trip and kept us updated without us ever having to ask. She kept the house tidy, took our dog on walks, kept him clean, and our dog seemed super happy when we got back. Jessica has a calm, responsible demeanor and is obviously great with dogs. We will definitely be booking her for our future travel.
