Veronica was great with my puppy and nice to work with. She was very responsive and followed all instructions that were left for my dog. She communicated what happened during the visits and sent a good amount of photos. I would definitely recommend her and use her again. Thanks Veronica!

Raquel was fantastic with communication and sending some hilarious photos of my cat. I was anxious about the length of time I was gone for but she made me feel rest assured my cat was in good hands! Would definitely utilize her again in the future.

Jillian was fantastic with my dog, Stella! I have a lot of trouble leaving Stella, even for a weekend and Jillian made sure that I got lots of pictures with each visit and was thorough in her post-walk Rover cards. Will definitely be using Jillian again!

Oh my goodness, where do I start?? Alexis is a true animal lover and because of that she is the absolutely perfect pet sitter! While I was on vacation, Alexis took incredible care of my two kitties, one of which is newly on insulin and requires a shot twice a day. Alexis handled this like a champ and even taught me how to do it myself! Also, one of my cats is an escape artist and Alexis took great care each visit to make sure that he stayed inside! Alexis sent me pictures of my babies from each visit and made sure that they felt loved and had someone to play with. I would recommend Alexis to anyone who needs a fantastic pet sitter who would treat your babies as her own!

I would highly recommend Susan to walk your dog. She is fun, loving and compassionate. As with many of us, my dog is a family member that requires daily attention. When I need a little help in getting my Pluto outside for exercise and loving attention Susan is my go to gal. She can be trusted with your most precious pet. My dog is now 14 years old and loves her. Sincerely, Suzan

We needed a last minute drop-in visit and Brittany was very quick to respond and we met via video for a little walk-through of where she could find our pup and what to do. She was very accommodating to our needs on super short notice and sent pictures promptly after hanging out with our sweet Tico for half an hour. She even brought in some packages that were delivered. We will absolutely contact her again next time we need some puppy help!

Alex is more than qualified to care for pets. Not only is she extremely responsible and caring, she loves dogs more than anyone else I know. I brought my dog to stay with us in college and she cared and walked my dog more than I did. She loves her long morning and midday walks and spending quality time with the cute pups. I would 10/10 recommend Alex as a dog caretaker!

Abigail was great! She checked in with our German Shepherd twice while we were away and was great. We loved the pictures and are glad she also played with him! She also gave him medication (which is no easy feat). We'll definitely be using her again!

I am pleased to write a recommendation for my friend who is applying for the pet sitting position. She possesses remarkable patience and has successfully cared for a variety of animals, including birds, rabbits, cats, and dogs. Her dedication to the well-being of her own pets is truly commendable. Beyond her hands-on experience, her aspiration to own a small farm in the future underscores her genuine passion for animal care. I am confident that her nurturing approach and commitment will make her an excellent fit for the responsibilities of a pet sitter.

Jayda is a close work friend of mine. The words I would use to describe her are charismatic, trustworthy, friendly, loving, and caring. While I was on vacation, Jayda offered to take care of my two year old Havanese. She did a great job with everything! Jayda Cruz would be an excellent candidate for your service at Rover.com.

Marcea was the best pet sitter I've had so far, and thankfully was available on short notice in a hectic time. I have a rescue cat who can be difficult with strangers, but she warmed up to Marcea right away and was relaxed and sociable on my return. Marcea also kept me posted during my trip with photos and videos, and is understanding/communicative about plans beyond a 9 to 5 schedule. Highly recommend; will be booking again!

I have known Sofia for about 17 years, and in that time, she has always had a deep love for dogs. In September of 2017, we were presented with an opportunity to adopt a puppy in need, that had been abandoned on the side of the road with its litter mates and mother. The puppies were initially rescued by a mutual friend and were kept safe until they were old enough to be adopted. Sofia and I both jumped on the chance to rescue these pups and give them the homes they deserved. I took a pup who I named Larry, and Sofia brought home Bruno. Bruno is a great dog. He is loyal, friendly, obedient, and sweet as can be, and I know a big part of that comes from the way Sofia raised and trained him. Sofia worked with Bruno diligently in the first few months of adopting him. She was firm with him, but also patient and kind. Bruno lives a good life chasing squirrels, playing soccer, going on walks, eating treats, and being spoiled by his loving parents. I know without a doubt in my mind that Sofia would care for your pet the exact same way she cares for her baby Bruno. She loves him endlessly and is such a great dog mom to him. Sofia is one of the most responsible and hard working people I know. She has an effective communication style, and will make sure all your dog’s needs are met while you are away. I have trusted Sofia with my own dog, who is 10x more crazy than Bruno, and she handled him effortlessly. Your pup will be in great hands with Sofia, I promise.
