I haven’t used a service like this before and was kind of hesitant about it. Andrea did a fantastic job and took excellent care of my Yoda. I will definitely be using this service again. Thank you Andrea!

Tanya was extremely attentive to our cats while we were gone and very attuned to their body language and (obviously) non-verbal communication. She was also great at communicating with us. Couldn’t recommend a better caretaker - would gladly hire her again!

We added an extra visit on the night we came home - the puppies were all taken care of so we could just settle in and relax with them after a late flight back. Christina did an amazing job the whole week!

Tarah was AMAZING! She was super flexible with timing and key drop offs. She was great with my diabetic cat and his insulin injections! She came over before her visits to see what all she had to do which helped my anxiety a ton!

Lisa was wonderful! This was my first time using Rover and she made it so easy to work with her. She went above and beyond what I asked her to do and made me feel very comfortable leaving my cat. Will definitely be using her again :)

Chelsie did a fabulous job watching over Bowdette. She is very shy, but Chelsie was able to get her to come out and play. Chelsie will be my go to person anytime I need Bowdette taken care of while I am away!!!

Our cats are still warming up to the idea of people and tend to hide (even from us on some days), but Nichole did her best to win them over anyway. It gave me great peace of mind to know the person checking on them was so attentive, even if the cats themselves weren't enthusiastic about a new friend. Thanks so much!

Jaden is not only an amazing dog caregiver but was the greatest dad to one of the bestest boys to ever live. His boy Zeus was an amazing dog. Not only because that's just the dog he was but because of the bond and love Jaden had formed with his best friend. Jaden knows what it means to give a dog a full and happy life full of play,joy and fulfillment. Not only that but he really showed just how good he was when we took care of all 3 of my boys with no problems whatsoever! They did not want him to leave! I've never had more peace of mind when entrusting my boys for care when I had to be away. Thank you Jaden!!!

I can't say enough great things about Jenny. She truly is her. As a dog owner who is constantly traveling for work, I needed someone who I could trust to love and take care of my Lab, Duke. Jenny has taken care of him for quite some time now and I couldn't be happier. Jenny loves the outdoors, which makes her even more amazing. My lab gets not only love and energy from her, but also LONG walks! Duke always get excited to see Jenny, as she has a passion for all thing animals! We love Jenny!

Taylor and I have know each other for a few years, and she’s always been an avid animal lover. When my family got our puppy, she immediately offered to look after him if the need ever arose. We started with a short over night trip and she was so attentive. She sent multiple updates for our happy boy. From that point forward we used her services any time we went out of town. Her communication is always top notch and every time our pup came back tired and happy. You can’t go wrong trusting Taylor with your fur-baby. She’ll love them like her own and go above and beyond each and every time.

Alison is amazing with our dogs. She offers a lot of different care options, and we did a meet and greet at her home to make sure our pups got along with hers. It went great, and our dogs get so excited when we take them over there now! Alison is great at communicating and even sends text and photo updates. Couldn’t recommend her enough!

Keturah took care of my dogs during my workdays for a handful of years. I have a chiweenie (who frequently gets eye infections) and a nervous yorkie who requires a certain diet. She's always done great with them and still gets excited to see both of my dogs. I still reach out to her when I'm going out of town. Very reliable girl and loving towards my little guys. I've always been grateful for her.
