This was my first time using rover, I was desperate and really needed someone to watch my sainty because I was going out of town last minute. Luckily Jen was available and treated Saint like he was a part of the family, constantly sent pictures and videos and updates and really just showed Saint a lot of love. I will definitely be rebooking with her in the future.Thank youu Jen <3

Ben took care of my dog, Shadow. Shadow can be a little bit of a handful — Ben is incredibly attentive and diligent and she could not have been happier. I know all pet owners cringe when we have to talk through the laundry list of our dogs idiosyncrasies… Ben is accommodating and very kind. I feel very lucky to have found him!

Roxy is the best! My pup always has the best time with her. They go on field trips and she sends me lots of pictures each day. I can rest easy when he’s with her. My pup literally has a smile in his photos and always pooped out from his vacation!!!! Mojo can’t wait to go back 🥰

Our pup Cori had a wonderful stay with Liz! She was kind, easy to communicate with, responsive and sent plenty of updates, including photos and videos. Most importantly she was so sweet to Cori and took him out for fun excursions and adventures. Would definitely have Cori stay with her again!

Kayla was amazing with my pup and I’m certain she will be with your too! I get worried leaving Karma alone with sitters for the first time because of her anxiety and separation issues. Kayla put me at ease with her calm, and caring nature. She shared photos of Karma that made see how quickly she felt at home with her. Karma would love to stay with Kayla in the future :)

Charli is absolutely amazing!!!!!!! We were nervous about leaving our stubborn but sweet boy for a few days with a new rover but Charli went above and beyond to ease our worries. She sent detailed updates and we could tell Mushu felt so at home with her. It’s safe to say he’s found a new best friend!! We will gladly use Charli again. Can’t thank her enough. Look no further for the best doggie care 🫶🏻

Stefanie was the best pet sitter I’ve ever had! She took care of Parsley for a week while I was on vacation and sent picture updates every day. Parsley living his best life feet up in the air relaxing on her couch. Parsley living his best life on the beach. Just happiest dog ever pictures every day! I can tell she took great care of him and he was really well looked after. Honestly, it was like leaving Parsley with someone who had adopted him. I would 1000% rebook with her and recommend her to literally everyone. Thank you again, Stefanie!

Kelly did an amazing job with Sydney. I knew she was in good hands when we did an initial meet and greet. I felt bad too for springing some last minute meds we had just got started in too, but it didn’t phase her at all.

Garima was an excellent dog sitter to my boy Rafa. She is so friendly and welcoming. Garima closely followed my pup’s care guide, kept me updated, was very responsive, and made sure Rafa got the care and attention he needed. I would highly recommend Garima to watch over your pet.
