Kelly has went above and beyond to help our 12 week old puppy feel comfortable and happy. Our puppy Ruby got to meet other small dogs to play and socialize, got plenty of treats and outdoor time, and Kelly was even kind enough to allow us extra time when we couldn’t pick her up right away. We’re beyond thankful to have her and will be repeat clients for sure.

This was Rocco's second stay with Jeff and family. He recognized where we were as soon as we started walking to the door and got really excited. They are so great with Rocco, give him lots of attention, take him on off-leash walks, and generally spoil him. We are already planning his next stay.

Danielle was very communicative and was very attentive to Zag. She sent lots of pics and vids, said she gave him a bath when he got dirty, and took him out for sunshine and playtime. He got along very well with her super sweet pup as well. Danielle also just seemed very sweet and good with dogs!

I was very tentative about leaving my baby dog with someone from an app that I haven't used before. Not that I haven't heard about Rover, I just thought there was a high chance I would not get my dog back. Lauren and her partner, Justin, asked to have a dog meet-and-greet. They were so nice and sweet, the interaction between Lukas (my dog) and them was a good sign. One of the main reasons I chose to book with Lauren is because of the fact that she and Justin are home pretty often and Lukas was not alone for long. The morning I dropped Lukas off at their place, Justin was the one who was home and so helpful with getting everything I packed for the week's stay. I overpacked and brought too much stuff but Justin helped me get things out of my car. It was a relief because I could tell from that interaction Lukas would be well taken care of. I thought that I was being an overbearing dog parent by asking for pictures 3x's a day but Lauren said that is the minimum amount that she sends everyday. My dog was not on a strict schedule for breakfast, potty breaks, and dinners but Lauren's updates were pretty consistent from day to day that I could predict when I was going to get a message. I could tell that Lauren really cares about the wellbeing of Lukas because they always checked with me before doing something that was not in Lukas's normal care plan. For example, she wanted to get treats from the farmer's market they went to and texted me before feeding it to my dog. I felt like Lukas was on a vacation getaway of his own cause Lauren and Justin spoiled him just enough that I thought my dog wouldn't want to come back home with me by the end of his stay. At the end of the stay, my flight got delayed and I was a lot later than my pick up time that I scheduled. Lauren and Justin were so flexible and were waiting for me when I came for pick up. When I drove up, they were waiting for me outside and helped me put everything in my car. Lauren handed me a couple of polaroids and a bag of the farmer's market treats that my dog loves now. I definitely recommend having Lauren and Justin dogsit your furry baby, you won't regret it one bit. I already plan on booking with them for my next vacation! I know Lukas wants to go back and stay with them too.

This is the 2nd time we used Kit to board our dog Barry. She was great! We were given regular updates on his activities. And she took such good care of him that Barry thought he was on an extended playdate. We would recommend her services anytime.

Chad and his family are amazing! Chad was understanding and communicative throughout the Rover process. His place is truly a property filled with trees and plenty of backyard space for your pup to run and sniff around. Chad is a true professional when it comes to dog sitting, knowing the dogs he cares for very well. He also seems to be a very down-to-earth person that goes the extra mile to be sure your questions are answered and you feel comfortable leaving your furbaby in his care. THANK YOU CHAD & FAM for TLC you showed my family on a holiday weekend. I couldn't have had a better first experience with a Rover sitter. =)

Jessica is amazing! From the beginning, Jessica was super responsive and answered all questions we had about her care for our dog, Kairo. This was Kairo's first long-term stay outside of our home and judging from how Kairo's spirit after we picked him up, we knew instantly that he was happy and enjoyed his stay. Jessica provided daily updates and photos of Kairo, letting us know how he was doing and how he was adjusting. From the photos, we could tell he was having a great time. We could not have asked for a better match for Kairo. Thanks, Jessica, for the wonderful care you provided for Kairo!! Until next time!

My first time booking a sitter through Rover, and my senior dachshund loved the weekend he spent at Eiko’s place! She took amazing car of my dog and seemed super comfortable with the notes I left her—my dog is pretty easy going but can be a bit needy at times. I got a handful of updates throughout the weekend but I was also able to turn my attentions away and feel really comfortable leaving her in charge of the little guy. I’d definitely recommend her, and I’ll likely be looking to book here again!

Pablo and Claire (sp) took very good care of Roxy for a week. Pablo sent great photo updates and asked questions to make sure that he’s taking the appropriate actions to keep Roxy happy and healthy. We joke that Roxy got a great vacation during her stay at Pablo’s, but that’s probably the truth. You can ‘t go wrong when you get Pablo & Claire to care for your dog (just don’t do it when we need to…).

Jennifer took great care of my 6 year old dachshund, Winston while I was on vacation for a week. He can be a bit of an anxious boy so I really appreciated all the updates and photos she sent. She had a good handful of other dogs there, but sounds like she did a great job to make sure everyone got along and was comfy!

Sloopy really loves to stay with Donald. I think she thinks his home is hers. I really appreciate that he keeps her to a regular schedule and I think that reduces her anxiety greatly. I know that Sloopy is well cared for when she stays with Donald.

Winne provided wonderful care for our senior dog. She gave him plenty of walks, followed our instructions, and her dog Bella was a sweet host. Winne unfortunately had to deal with some behavioral problems (anxiety, difficult handling, bathroom habits) during our dog’s stay. She handled it all so well, consulting with us along the way. We couldn’t have asked for a better care for what turned out to be a challenging stay.

Rohun was outstanding in every way. He was flexible when we needed to adjust the drop-off time; in fact, he even made the trip to our house to pick up our dog when we needed to leave town earlier than we’d planned. Rohun was super communicative every step of the way; sent photos, videos and updates during our dog’s stay with him. Bella was very happy there, relaxed and calm. We will definitely use Rohun the next time we need to board Bella.

We boarded our dog, Roxy, with Cassandra while we were out of town. We already knew from prior conversations that Cassandra’s very accessible and understanding. The pictures she sent show Roxy living her best life and very well taken care of. We had a great experience with Cassandra.

Iggy did a trial stay with Mary and absolutely loved her. He can be a little shy and unsure but she and Murphy Brown made him feel very comfortable. She kept us informed about how he was doing and was wonderful! We’re looking forward to having her watch Iggy again for a longer stay.

My family and I are so thankful for the quality of care provided to our little dog. Margy was so attentive and caring and we have no doubt that he was offered the very best attention during his stay. Updates were provided along the way, which we really appreciated. Would definitely recommend Margy and family for doggy care.

Amanda watched my cat while I was out of town for a week and I can't recommend her enough! I was really nervous leaving Neptune with someone new but they gave me all the time I needed to help him get adjusted and say goodbye. Both Amanda and her partner seem to understand cats very well and gave him all the attention he needed (and my cat is needy lol). She sent pictures and updates daily which I really appreciated. I would certainly book with her again in the future. Thanks Amanda!
