This was our first time using Adrie to watch our senior, diabetic cat, and she did a great job - we will definitely request her again for future care! Our cat’s diabetes comes with stricter feeding schedules/instructions and injections, which Adrie handled great. She also made sure he was brushed and got time out on our porch. Our cat even got sick while we were out and she cleaned up everything and gave us thorough updates on his well-being.

What a very nice young man.. I felt completely comfortable giving him the key to my home. Each day he sent me a picture to let me know he was there. I was able to enjoy myself on my trip knowing he was there. Again Thank you Ryan!

Jasmine does an excellent job with my dog; and he adores her. She is one of the only people who can get him to eat consistently; even more than I can! If it was possible for me, I’d have her check on my dog even more!

Jules was such an amazing sit in for our pooch! She brings a ray of great personality and enthusiasm. Our dog tobe is a very anxious dog. So much that he has to take medication on top of an extremely active lifestyle and home made food. He instantly was drawn to Julia and relaxed as we left the house. Need I say more?! We were so happy with her dog care that we will be definitely prioritizing her as our Rover dog care specialist :)

About: I have taken care of dogs of every age and type since I was 3 years old! Between my own two dogs and my friends' dogs, I have experience with most breeds, ages, and lifestyle. I am a college student at UCSC and will be able to check on and take care of your little buddy's needs between my classes. I will follow your every instruction when it comes to the safety of your pet. Your dog will be kept occupied when inside and will remain on the leash when out for walks.

Damaris is one of the most caring dog lovers I know. Her and I have taken taken care of dogs together for neighbors and friends and my impression is that dogs love her high energy and playful manner. I would trust her with any of my dogs and recommend her as a perfect dog sitter to whomever is needing one.
