“Sheri is responsive, respectful, and overall a delightful person who truly cares for your dogs. I received updates with photos and will 100% trust Sheri with my two princess pitties again in the very near future. Seriously 10/10.”

“This was a great experience for us, and our Luna. They have a lot of land for her to explore and they took very good care of her. It was like she was with family.”
“Thanks for taking great care of my boys!”
“Cindy took really good care of Frankie and I could tell she was very knowledgeable about dogs! Frankie also loved hanging out with her other two pups and her wonderful family. I would love to have Cindy watch Frankie again!”
About: Puppy sitting for my perfect nephew (Rocky) for the last five years in San Diego inspired me to help others in Richmond now that I call it my home. In college I fostered kittens that were too young to be adopted to help build socialization skills with people. I grew up always having both a dog and cat in the home and can’t wait to rescue someone of my own here soon 😊. I currently work from home all weekdays, but do plan travel typically 1x per month. I live an active life and love the outdoors, long walks and hikes. I am happily available for boarding, daycare or walks any day of the week. Advance notice to schedule boarding is greatly appreciated to plan ahead with my schedule. My home is a single story, 3 bedroom house with a fenced in backyard and quiet street full of neighborhood fur friends to meet along our walks!
“Sarah is wonderful. She gives my puppy lots of love and attention. She has also answered some questions and offered me some advice that I have found to be helpful.”
“Sorry for the late review. I've been doing the grandma thing for the past 2 weeks. I am a widow and I live alone many miles from family. My dogs, Margot and Molly, have become my life. When I learned that they were not invited to the party, I almost declined the invitation. Through a trusted friend, I learned about Rover. I took a chance and booked a time with Dawn. WOW! It's like taking your child to kindergarten for the first day and they walk away from you without looking back. I like to think the girls are good judges of character. Well Dawn took their leashes and they walked away from me without looking back They were not the least stressed when I picked them up later. They had play time with other dogs, they had their dinner and they were ready for a good night's sleep when I picked them up. I got updates on where they were and what they were doing. I couldn't be happier than I was with Dawn's care. This experience was a golden buzzer for me.”
“Jordan was the best! I was traveling for work and had to bring my dog, Kona, with me. She was so flexible and made sure Kona was well loved on while I was at work. Will definitely use her again when I’m in the area.”
“Hello, animal lovers! I have had much success using Rover and I highly recommend Lindsey to be a part of the team. I've had the pleasure of seeing her interact with many animals over the years; she is your modern-day Elliza Thornberry! She has a feline of her own and its obvious how much they love each other. She helped care for my cat with special needs. I have seen her administer medicine and single handedly bath a cat, walking away without a scratch. Her assertive and gentle demeanor makes her the perfect Canidate. Have a Magical Day, Kate”
“Carleen is always so great with our SweetPea. SweetPea practically drags me to the door because she is so excited to go visit. We know she’s in the best hands when there.”
“Katherine has watched my two dogs at least ten times and is always professional, kind, and loves the boys as her own! She pays attention to detail and follows all of the “overbearing dog mom” directions I give. :) It’s a bonus that she takes and shares so many pictures and provides updates on how they’re doing before I ever even have to ask!”
“Outstanding sitter, never once worried through out the day while away from my pup because I knew he was in good hands 10/10”
“Lee is responsible, attentive, and hard working. He's cared for people's pets for many years including walking, feeding, and tertiary care. Your furry friends are in good hands under his watch!”
“Maggie is a wonderful sitter. She is conscientious and low-key, which was just perfect for our dogs. They were relaxed with Maggie and her family, and we could relax, knowing that our beloved girls were in good hands. We will happily leave our dogs with Maggie when we visit Richmond next. Our dogs, Aoife and Schnuggi, are Bernese Mt. Dogs.”
“Sydney always provides excellent care to pets! She helped me settle in with my dog when I was a first-time dog owner. She is an incredibly competent dog owner in her own right, and is confident and kind with every dog I've seen her interact with. You can rest assured that your pet will receive the best possible care (and plenty of snuggles) with Sydney.”

“I have witnessed for several years the love and care that my niece Ingrid has for the animals, her responsibility and affection for the pets stands out in her. She is very affectionate and very attentive to the pets.”
“Nicole is awesome! Our first visit was on Tuesday with our puppy, Hopper. He played and napped all day long! Our second visit was today (Thursday) with Hoppers brother, Moose! She replies quickly to texts and even asked to take Moose on a little adventure to play with a friends puppy. Her dogs are great with them both and are very good teachers in doggy manners.”
“Lydia was awesome. She was very flexable with drop off and pick up times and sent pictures and a video throughout the day to let was know that Nixon was doing well. We look forward to using her again.”
About: Hey there! As a girl who grew up on a farm, I’ve been taking care of animals most of my life. As a dog mom myself, I know how important it is to feel like your fur baby is in good hands! It’s my top priority to make sure your fur baby feels safe, loved, and that communication and updates are consistently provided. I’m comfortable handling doggos and cats of all ages, abilities, and personalities (as long as I get a heads up). I’m also an avid runner and would love to take your pup on a nice run (if that’s your pups thing). I hope to meet your fur baby soon! I am currently working part-time and have a flexible week day schedule. I am able to do multiple day visits, stay for some snuggles, etc. I will work to accommodate your preferences and your pup's routine. I will ensure your home is kept clean, secure, and meet any special requests unique to you and your family.
“Elyjah by far is one of the best individuals I have ever worked with. Very caring and compassionate. Works so well with dogs and their caregivers. He took care of our dog Chenel and he’s the absolute best. We have absolutely nothing to worry about when Elyjah is watching her, 100% reliable. Super responsible and tentative dog caregiver and person overall.”
