“Mitchell was fantastic with Ernest - he sent me images of him every morning and evening and was very communicative as well as thoughtful and considerate on every level and a perfect houseguest. Additionally as a Reiki practitioner both the energy of my apartment and my dog was very calm and lovely when I arrived home. I will absolutely be booking Mitchell again - five stars!!!”
“She took great care of my pets and my home, she was friendly and attentive, and went above and beyond her duties❤️ We would use her again in a heartbeat!”
“Anna was an excellent sitter for our large mastiff. Our dog was very relaxed and happy when we came home. She did a great job and definitely worth the money. We will hire her in the future for sure.”
“Meg and I have known each other professionally for close to 20 years. In all of those years, I’ve known Meg to be a hard working, compassionate and conscientious person. When I heard that Meg was house sitting, I immediately booked her for my next trip away. Meg was easy to communicate with, and provided excellent care for my home, cat, chickens and ducks. Everything was left clean and the cat was clearly in a good mood when I returned. He likes to be pet regularly and Meg sent pictures of them cuddling up, which put my mind at rest. Meg also communicated when the animals were in at night and safe from predators. This was such a nice personal touch for me, because I tend to be a worrier. One really need not worry when Meg is in charge. Meg is a considerate, capable, intelligent and honest person who would be an asset to any person’s home or work life.”
“My wife and I contacted Alex M. to housesit our Havanese puppy. As this was almost a last minute request (we forgot we had concert tickets!), we were extremely pleased at Alex's immediate reply and willingness to meet us for a meet and greet. Alex had a wonderful personality and got along with our little puppy extremely well from the get go. Alex's willingness to help out and her confidence and skill with dogs made us feel very comfortable from the start since we'd never had a dog sitter before nor used Rover before. On the night of the event, Alex was punctual, professional, and just an all around great person, not only for us to chat with, but also for our little one. Alex sent us a couple updates with pics during the evening so we could see how our puppy was doing. We really appreciated this gesture. It was a pleasure to work with Alex and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to keep an eye on their precious dog. Thanks Rover, and especially thanks to Alex!”
About: From puppies/kittens to senior ones, I love them all. I have skills in potty training and giving medicine to all types of critters. I am well versed and quite simply just love being around animals! I am currently just attending school, so I often have spare time during my week and weekends to pet sit! I am very flexible, but I am also reliable. I will communicate effectively as well as stick to my word when watching your animals! I prioritize making the animal comfy and cozy. Of course I will stick to what the owner and family do in terms of taking care of their pet! I am more than happy to accommodate to any specific requests!
About: Personally, I've had over 20 dogs throughout my lifetime. Mostly Chihuahuas but I had experience with other types of breeds throughout the years. I have been blessed to work with a couple cats as well. My previous job was working at a zoo where I had to work with many different types of animals. I had to accommodate to each of their needs, make sure they were properly taken care of, and stuck to the strict regimen that they had. From tarantulas to hedgehogs to parrots, I worked with quite a variety of animals. I am currently a student athlete and have wrote down what my schedule looks like on a weekly basis below. Monday Unavailable from 1 - 4:35pm Tuesday Unavailable from 9:35 - 11:00am Unavailable from 1 - 4:35pm Unavailable from 6 - 7:30pm Wednesday Unavailable from 8 - 12:35pm Unavailable from 6 - 7:30pm Thursday Unavailable from 9:35 - 11:00 am Unavailable from 6 - 7:30pm Friday Saturday Sunday Upcoming Unavailable Dates October 14-15 November 23 - 26 December 20 I am dedicated to helping make peoples lives easier and to the proper care of an animal so my full attention and time will be with the animal the days I am available. With client home care, animal owners can expect respect of their house, rules, and boundaries with the animal. They can also expect for there to be a lot of enrichment and affection shown to the animals. For care in the sitters home, they can expect the same values as I stated previously. There would also be a lot of physical activity and outdoor time if the animal’s itinerary and physical self allowed it. And if the animals cannot do physical activities or outdoor time, then we can easily make accommodations and adapt to whatever the animal needs.
“Great Communication and very happy dogs!”

“Erendira helped so much with our family dog Lucy when my grandma got sick and couldn't care for her. She's very loving and genuinely cares for dogs and their well being . ”
“Heather did an excellent job watching our two dogs and house use sitting while we were out of town. I highly recommend her and we will definite be using her services again!”

“Kim is a HUGE animal lover. She treats my dog like it is her own; with lots of love, kisses, snuggling and playing in the outdoors. I've observed her take exquisite care of the farm animals she is responsible for. Each chicken and duck has a name and she cares for them so that they feel cared for and safe.”
“I can't say enough wonderful things about Mimi. We were in town from Los Angeles and needed someone to watch our dog while we were at a wedding. She was so kind and warm and I think she knew I was nervous about leaving with him with someone we didn't know. Well.... She sure eased my mind! She sent pics throughout the evening and reports on how he was doing. Also, she's a trainer and gave us some great tips. She is professional, on time, and most importantly was so so nice to our dog. I can't rave enough. Thanks Mimi!”
“Shaundra has stayed at my home twice and watched my dog Sundance. She is pleasant, communicative and leaves the place as neat as when she found it. I can tell she has a deep love for animals which makes me very comfortable to have my dog in her care.”
“Jocelyn is amazing with animals from small to big, as well with the ones with the calmest personalities to the most hyper. I would trust my dog with her as I know that my baby would have the most wonderful time as well as being safe. She’ll always be first choice if I ever need to leave the care of my baby with someone else.”
“Kolby is a fantastic example of an animal care taker! She currently owns two gerbils and allows them to have the freedom to roam around their cage as well as her own room. She properly feeds and sanitizes their cage. Kolby also currently owns family dogs and cats that she deeply cares about. Kolby is a very caring, calm and understanding person. She takes the time out of her day to to show her love and respect to any animal. Not to mention the meaningful pictures she likes to take with them.”
“Macy was wonderful! Tucker loved spending time with her. She went above and beyond sending updates and made us super comfortable that our boy was safe. Thank you Macy!”
