We can't say enough about how thoughtful and wonderful Lily is! We had a difficult time finding a sitter for our 18+ year old rescue pups. They have lots of quirks and need several medications throughout the day - and lots of bathroom trips. Lily took care of them with so much kindness and grace. We were able to take a family trip without worry - her updates and photos were so sweet and informative - and we look forward to more in the future now that we have found someone we can trust. We highly recommend Lily for all your pet care needs. Thank you so much for the incredible care, Lily! You're amazing. :)

Bryan has walked our two medium-large rescue dogs a few times and recently house sat for us for a week. Bryan is AMAZING. He has been wonderful about getting to know the dogs (despite them being anxious barkers), and is a very attentive, experienced, and calm caregiver for the dogs. He’s also extremely nice, gave funny updates about the dogs and their quirks while we were gone, and treated the house with respect. Bryan is officially our go to sitter!!!

Celeste has been so caring and loving for my dog Rocky. Even though Rocky may not be the most well trained, she did a stellar job with him. Celeste is incredibly responsible and I would highly recommend her to take care of anyones pet.

Carla was so patient and kind with taking the time to get to know my shy dog, Scarlet, and letting her go at her own pace to adapt to a new human in her home (plus get me used to a new dog sitter!) We will definitely be booking her again soon.

We hired Sami to look after our 11yo staffi Uzi over the Christmas break. Sami was very responsive and they took the best care of Uzi. They kept us informed daily, and paid close attention to Uzi’s health as she is very old and has cancer. Sami took great care of our house as well and we’d definitely hire them again if need be. Uzi is reactive with other dogs and Sami still agreed to watch her and walk her in our dog-filled neighborhood. Thanks again to them!

Katey Blevens was my pet sitter for several years. I had some very old, very sick animals. She was always professional and was very good at caring for my old, ill animals. When I got a younger dog, she took him to the dog park, on long walks and to play dates and training classes on her own, with my permission, of course. We all miss her because she was so dependable and loved our animals as if they were her own. She is 100% trustworthy. Your pets will thank you!

Jackie was a fantastic choice for our first Rover experience! We got lots of photos and came home to happy dogs and a clean house. Since one of our pups was a pandemic baby, this was his first time overnight without us, but it went great with Jackie's care!

PJ was wonderful communicating both before and during this first pet sitting visit. He lived in with our almost one year old kitten, embraced her routines, care and activities, including using outside time on harness, and sent photos and and regularly. We arrived back to a very content kitty, a clean house and we are enthusiastic to use him for future trips.

Andrew in a word was superb! He paid very very close loving attention to my cat, Bug. I received daily narratives and photos of her and of them playing. He was careful and accurate about her medication and paid close attention to my instructions about food and feeding. He also kept my home beautifully—he was very clean and neat, to say the least. I could not ask for a better cat and house sitter. I cannot say enough about his performance. I will absolutely have him return. I could see how happy Bug was when I returned—outside of her initial expected complaints about my absence! Andrew is a star! I felt lucky to have found him.

She loves animals and is very nurturing. She's responsible, dependable, ethical, caring, gentle, and more importantly animals love her.

Alyson was really incredible. She took really great care of our high energy dog, Lola. She kept her busy and happy and kept us fully up to date on all activity which was wanted given it was our first time using Rover. Will absolutely be using again and reaching out to Alyson first.

About: I’ve taken care of dogs of all ages and sizes since I was a teenager. I love getting outside with them and know that a well walked and properly stimulated dog is also a happy and well behaved dog. I also love taking pictures of them so you can be sure to receive regular updates on your pal. Depending on your dogs diet, I love to get creative with things like meal toppers and stimulating treats (shaved carrots, peanut butter, unsalted bone broth etc.)! I work from home so pet sitting allows me to have a buddy for my walks and be attentive to the dog in my care :) For boarding, your dog will have a designated open area for their bed/crate where they can hang. Pets are welcome on furniture, but I’m happy to abide by whatever rules you have at home for consistency.

Julie was the perfect dogsitter!! She cared for my two pooches with efficiency and grace. They were clean, calm and happy when I returned. She took incredible pictures — not sure how SHE gets them to sit/stay so well! I hadn't used Rover in nearly 3 years and so was a bit reluctant to go away. And now I'm reluctant to post this glowing review b/c she may be unavailable next time ... :)

Michelle has done an amazing job with our male golden retriever on multiple stays in her home. She is fabulous, caring and intuitive with dogs. She provided us with frequent updates and pictures throughout the stays. When we came to pick him up, I don't think he wanted to leave! I highly recommend Michelle.
