Abby was very good with my anxious dog. She got her to warm up quickly and was with her while a lot of fireworks were going off and kept her happy. I would happily hire her again!

Miranda came to meet myself and my dog about a week before she was scheduled to stay at my house. She was punctual and asked good questions. And right before my trip, it got extended 3 extra nights and she was available & willing to extend the stay. She frequently updated me and sent cute pics/videos....never had to worry if he was in good hands. I have already booked her for my next trip!

Our dog is a little nervous and he seemed to do great with Molly staying with him for the weekend! We got periodic photo updates so we could see how he was doing. We’d definitely have Molly stay with him again!

Carol has watched our dog on numerous occasions for us in our home. We can’t take her with us when we fly cross country to visit family and Carol takes such good care of her. Her ears perk up and her tail wags whenever Carol comes up the walkway. Carol is always respectful of our home and takes such good care of our pup.

Kayla was AWESOME! She stayed with our 3 year old Golden Retriever in our home while we were on a vacation for a week. She sent us photos twice a day, and even let us know what her class schedule looked like that week so we knew ahead of time when she’d be leaving him to chill at home. She was never gone for more than 2 hours, and we felt confident that our home and Benito were safe while we were away.

To whom it may concern. I have known Cory all of his life and he is an extremely caring and responsible person that I would trust with my life and his commitment to his and others and their animals. They are well fed and very well maintained with all their wants and needs met with love and compassion. I would trust him to care for my entire family especially my babies and their care!

We're over the moon with Tarah's stellar care for our two bulldogs while we were away. She handled everything like a pro, from giving them their daily Benadryl to dealing with their sassy attitudes with patience and grace. Coming back to a house that was better than we left it and two happy pups was the best feeling ever. Tarah's genuine love for animals shines through in everything she does, making her our top choice for pet sitting. If you're looking for someone reliable and caring, Tarah's your person. Huge thanks to Tarah for making our time away stress-free and our dogs' tails wag like crazy!

Shawna and her daughter Evan cared for our cat for a week while we were away. They took the initiative to make sure they had all the information before we left and provided periodic updates while we were gone (I didn’t even expect them to do that). They were very caring and responsible, and did everything we asked. I would ask them to take care of any of our pets in a heartbeat if we ever need someone again.

Kylie is an amazing person! She absolutely loves what she does and puts her all into it. Kylie helped us greatly when we were in a rough stop time wise. My husband and I were both working 2 jobs and couldn’t keep up with our dogs needs. Kylie made it so we could keep out pup and still get out responsibilities done. The busy schedules were only for about a month but Kylie helped us so much!

Brooks was fantastic! He showed great patience, persistence, and passion in caring for my pup. My dog had significant anxiety and I had not had great success with two previous Rovers… yet, Brooks managed to build a rapport with my pup and as a result, she was able to relax and be okay with me being away. Brooks applied great skills to build trust with my pup, and believe me, it took time, but he did it. I feel so much better knowing I have someone my dog is okay with while I am away. I am definitely calling Brooks again as I can’t say enough great things!
