Lori is great with our two cats and two dogs, and they all love her. We’ve had her over for check-ins, and she recently stayed with the pets at our house for a week - we came home to four happy pets. Having someone like Lori to rely on gives us great peace of mind!

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!

Abby was incredibly wonderful with our high energy, often mischievous Weimaraner! We were able to enjoy a family vacation knowing our pup was loved and cared for by a true pet lover! She sent daily pictures and updates keeping us posted on their activities back home. We can’t wait to have her back! We’re grateful for Abby!

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!

Sidney helped us out super last minute. I had a different sitter bail on me two days before a wedding, and Sidney jumped in to take the whole day dog sitting. Seriously wish I could give her a 10/5 stars, she communicated well and was so sweet. Thanks so so much Sidney we appreciate you!!

Claudia was my first experience with Rover and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction! Very friendly and got along well with my Norwegian Elkhound, Stella. She stayed the night with her while I was out of town, taking her on multiple walks and kept me updated with pictures. Next time I need a Rover, I will be messaging Claudia first!

I can't recommend Chloe highly enough for anyone in need of a trustworthy and caring pet sitter. Chloe went above and beyond in taking care of my dog, Addie. She made sure Addie got plenty of exercise, taking her on regular walks and giving her all the love and attention she needed while I was away. Chloe also ensured that I had peace of mind throughout the entire experience. She communicated regularly with updates and offered to send photos, which I really appreciated. If you're looking for someone who will treat your furry friend like family, look no further than Chloe. I will definitely be reaching out to her again for future pet-sitting needs.
