Amanda was wonderful with our pets! She took great care of our dog and cats in our home and even agreed to take care of my brothers dog at the last minute. My brothers dog can be temperamental, so I felt bad but she was patient and gentle and willing to deal with his “quirks.” She also kept us informed and was honest. We would definitely hire her again!

Jornelle watched our dog and house for two weeks while we were out of the country. She did a great job taking care of our dog and our house. She was extremely communicative with us and even cared enough to take our dog to her family’s Thanksgiving (after consulting with us) so our dog wouldn’t be left alone for too long. Would recommend!

I have had the privilege to have Kate both be a dog walker and dog/cat sitter for me over the past 5 years. She is extremely reliable and has never missed a day. She quickly bonded with them and always provides excellent care. It's always hard to be away from your furry kids, but I have no worries that with Kate, I know my dog and cat are in great hands! She has proven to be reliable with last minute requests as well which is extremely helpful! Lastly, Kate did help take care of my elderly dog and was comfortable administering medications when needed.

Another great experience with Mike and Alyssa. They spent quality time with our dogs while we were away over the holidays. They were helpful ensuring one of our dogs continued to recover from a recent surgery and helped as our dogs adapt to a new mealtime routine. Thanks for keeping Oscar and Bubba happy, safe and entertained!

We have known Grace her entire life and she is honest, trustworthy, and kind. Recently she has started to care for our 6 year old golden retriever. We trust Grace implicitly. She stays at our home, for over a week on more than one occasion, so our doggie is completely comfortable. Grace feeds, walks, and plays with our temperamental golden. She also cleans up after our dog, and leaves our house better than she found it. When Grace comes to visit our home, our dog squeals with joy. I highly recommend Grace!!!

In reviewing Victoria, I would like to say how responsible, professional and caring she was for our puppies! She was sure to have all the instructions down before we left, even coming the day before for a walk through, which was VERY much appreciated! She was seamless able to deal with the house, dogs and when there was a question, she was able to articulate it perfectly through the exact right cadence of communication!!  Most importantly, it was clear she not only took care of the dogs, but genuinely was happy to have the furry companionship - I would highly recommend Victoria for any drop in OR extended stay sitting and we will 100% use her again!

CANNOT RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH. She was so kind, attentive, and loving to our pup. She messaged us multiple updates and photos throughout the day and I know our boy had a wonderful time. I will definitely utilize Gabrielle services again in the future!

Katie is not only a responsible pet caregiver but has the biggest heart! Having known her for 10+ years I can attest that she has always been the biggest animal lover. As the owner and caregiver of numerous pets herself I have watched her care for animals lovingly and responsibly. Additionally, I have had the privilege to work along side Katie in a professional setting showing me even more of her responsible qualities like time management, communication skills, and costumer service expertise. Overall, Katie is an incredible addition to the Rover community due to her impeccable animal skills, lovely demeanor, and most importantly her responsibility.

About: i have always had a passion for animals, Growing up with several pets, I've developed a deep understanding of their needs and behaviors. My experience in caring for pets, both professionally and personally, has equipped me with the skills to be a responsible and attentive dog sitter. I believe that every pet is unique, with its own personality and requirements. As a sitter, my goal is to ensure that your baby feels safe, comfortable, and loved while in my care. I take the time to understand the owner's instructions and preferences, ensuring I follow them meticulously. Whether it's going for walks (for dogs) , feeding, administering medication, or just playing fetch, I approach each task with enthusiasm and dedication. I am home all day so your pet will have my undivided attention. they will have enough play time, walks-for dogs- and naps if poppies/kittens. Routine and Structure: I Establish a schedule for feeding, walking, playtime, and sleep. Pets thrive on routine, so having a consistent structure helps them feel secure. Feeding and Hydration: I follow the pet owner's instructions for feeding, including food type, portion size, and timing. Provide fresh water at all times. Exercise and Playtime: Ensure pets get enough exercise based on their breed, age, and energy level. Provide toys and interactive activities to keep them engaged. Safety and Security: I Keep pets safe by ensuring doors and gates are secure. Use appropriate leashes, harnesses, or crates if needed. Monitor their behavior to prevent accidents or escapes. Cleaning and Hygiene: Maintain a clean environment. Clean up after pets, regularly wash their bedding, and manage any odors. Health and Medical Care: Be aware of any medical conditions or medications the pet requires. Administer medication as directed by the owner and watch for any signs of illness or distress. Communication with Owners: Keep the pet owner informed about their pet's well-being through regular updates, photos, or videos.
