“Kayley was fantastic! Gave our boy a good long walk which is his favorite thing. She even cooked some carrots for him since he’s too much a wuss to eat normal or frozen ones lol we will definitely use Kayley again!”
“Rosemary was amazing! She sent frequent updates about how Sully was doing and was always on time. We knew Sully was in great hands with Rosemary, which made being out of town and away from home a lot less stressful. Thanks for everything, Rosemary! Sully can’t wait to see you again soon!”

“Adriana is an excellent candidate to become part of the Rover.com team. I have known her for eight years and her love of animals and care for them is unconditional. She has cared for multiple dogs and cats at a time throughout her life. She puts the animals well being as a top priority every day and makes sure that their needs are met. She has also given her time to animal shelters and donated funds to help rescue organizations care for animals that are injured, need relocation, food, supplies, etc. If given the opportunity to join the Rover.com team and help other pet owners, Adriana would care for the owners' pets like they were her own while they were away or in need of any type of assistance.”

“Erian watched our two yorkies while we were on vacation. She arrived on time for every walk, sent videos and pictures, and let us know how the pups were doing. She also made sure to refresh their food and water and played with them. Erian is extremely trustworthy, responsible, and kind. We will recommend her to all our friends and family, and already plan on hiring her for our next vacation! Excellent job, Erian!”

About: Dogs have played an important part in my life since I was young. My doggies currently range from a Yorkie to an Old English Sheepdog so I am comfortable with most any breed :) I have a job that has varying/flexible hours so I am going to incorporate dog walking based on how my schedule looks that given week. When I walk your dog I will have their safety in mind at all times, especially around other dogs and people. If they are at home I am happy to play with them and feed as necessary!
“Ellie was great! We will request her again in the future.”
“Michelle is super reliable and lovely to work with! She was very responsive, flexible about timing, and sent plenty of photos and videos of my cats while I was traveling. I could tell that my cats were in great hands while I was away :) I would definitely book with her again!”
About: I have lived with pets my entire life, but have experience taking care of my own dogs for the last 7 years. I have cared for both puppies and senior dogs. I have experience with overnight care for friends’ dogs as well. I currently have two dogs who I love to walk around church hill. I am a physician assistant in between jobs, so I currently have a very flexible schedule. I am happy to work with your needs on the weekends and during the week. I aim to provide compassionate care for your animals and use the techniques that you prefer. I will provide company, exercise, food, medication, and hygiene for your animals when necessary.
About: My mom works in veterinary medicine so we always had so many different animals around. Cats, dogs, birds, Snakes, guinea pigs; a little of everything. I ended up also working in vet med and have been working directly with animals for 6 years now. The last 2 years I have worked in a fear free clinic and have a special love for giant breed dogs! Evenings and weekends are the best times for me for drop ins and walks; but I have flexible availability throughout the day to meet your needs. I have a two story town house, so even though I have cats in the home, they will be upstairs and a baby gate will be on the stairs. I have a small shaded yard and a bigger open field behind us. We are close to a road, so pets will not be allowed outside without a leash as well as a slip lead if you are okay with that. I will also ask for any dogs being taken on a walk to have a leash and a slip lead as well. I will provide the lead.
About: I have taken care of dogs and cats for over 10 years and owned my own pets including: dogs, cats and rabbits! I love animals and have also trained my own pets. I work remote with flexibility to bring my work with me when taking care of pets and am able to take breaks to go for walks. Being open and clear about what is expected from me and what I am able to do for the clients. I am open and flexible to work with any animals and great communicator!
