“Frances is amazing! Amazing with our crazy frenchies. She is so patient with them. She stayed in touch with us throughout our trip and took great care of our babies!”
“I liked getting videos of the fluffy ones.”
About: As a former middle school educator, I understand that patience and love are key to any interaction. I’ve grown up with pets since I was 8 years old, and I’ve formally dog walked friends and families pets for five years. I keep in touch with all of them as if they were my own. I believe dogs deserve all of the love, patience, and fun. I have experience with small to medium dogs the most, but have also built meaningful relationships with larger dogs. This includes bathing, walking, feeding (and hand feeding), snuggling, and more. My current longest client is 4 years strong and I have even taken them to vet appointments as well as helped the owners research and find the best pet insurance for them. I have also experienced losing a loved dog and know the pain it brings; this reminds me to always give everything I can when in the presence of your fur baby. Whether your baby requires a little more attention or just needs a simple check in, I am here to help and follow your guidelines! BOARDING AND DAYCARE REQUESTS: if you book boarding or daycare in my home, please know I will not have any other pet around. I want to ensure top safety and that your pet receives 100% of my attention. I currently work full time but I am available almost all weekday evenings, weekends, and holidays (except Christmas and NY). I live in an apartment but it is located in a large park with plenty of exercise space and greenery. I will make sure your baby can still receive their exercise and potty time safely! Note to clients further than 12 miles: A $10 travel fee will be added for mileage/gas if you are located farther than 12 miles. When you schedule me, I’ll have plenty of time to be with your fur baby! Please be specific about their needs and yours. I will gladly follow up with any questions to ensure my service is to highest standards. Safety and trust are the utmost priority. While I do have experience with reactive dogs, I truly believe that specific boundaries and safety measures vary on a case by case basis. I will happily review your dogs profile and speak to you to ensure a safe plan is in place before our visit!
“She was an absolute gem. I had a last minute trip planned, and I had to make arrangements for my two high maintenance dogs. Erica house sat for me last minute and did amazing with my two huskies. When I got home, my huskies were tired (that’s an impressive feat on its own), and my house was clean of husky dust. She definitely didn’t have to sweep and whatnot but she did! I would book her again in a heartbeat.”
“Truc was great! Very attentive, considerate and communicative. I recommend her to anyone and will definitely have her watch the dogs in the future.”
“Sarah was so easy to communicate with! I got tons of updates, and she was very good with my spoiled cat Athena. I came home to a happy, healthy cat and a house that was in exactly the same condition I left it. I'm new to the area and had to find all new pet sitters, I'm grateful that I've now met Sarah and look forward to working with her again”
“we have used Sarah before and she always is amazing! Taking on 3 Saint Bernards isn’t an easy task. Sarah is so great with them and always stays at our house for in home services. We recently did an 11 day international trip and she stayed at the house with the 3 saints. It was great and she was always in contact and responsive too. Thank you always for helping watch our 3 saints- they adore you and they fam!”
“Ashley was the sweetest! If I send her a message last minute she is almost always available! My dogs always run to her when they see her. She has been doing this for our family for around 3 years now! She’s super friendly & understanding with all of our pets! I loved that she joined Rover so you all can experience the same relief it feels to leave my dogs with Ashley!”
“Stephanie was wonderful with both my dogs! That seemed very happy when I got home and like they had gotten really good care. My home was also very clean and nice! I would definitely have her house sit for me in the future!”
“Mel was very professional and did a great job babysitting my dog! Thanks!”
“Julieanna did a fantastic job housesitting for us over the holidays. She sent lots of pictures and updates of our dogs every day! She left our house better than what we left and our dogs seemed very happy and healthy when we returned. I appreciate her willingness to be flexible when our dates had to change due to flight issues.”
About: I am the go to dog watcher for my family because they travel much more than I do. I enjoy the company of dogs and make sure they are safe and enjoying themselves. Dealt with every size of dogs and haven't met a dog who I want able to make my buddy. I am currently looking for work but if I can make my bills with this app I will be doing this full time. I do wake up extra early so I'm able to get the day started right away. I try to keep routines the same for the dogs while I am watching them. While at my home I allow them in my rooms to hang out and can place in a kennel if needed. Have a back yard to let them run around and play but no fence so can't leave out there on there own
“I'm so thankful for Mackenzi! She was able to step-in to house sit my dog last minute after another Rover house sitter cancelled on their booking halfway through providing their house-sitting booking. Mackenzie provided the care and followed the schedule agreed upon for my dog. I have already booked Mackenzie again for another house-sitting booking and would highly recommend her to anyone needing a house-sitter for their pet.”

“Bek is great! She’s sat my dogs in-home twice now and I will continue to reach out for future sittings. She updates me throughout the weekend with pictures and texts so that I never have to reach out and ask how they are! I trust her with staying in my home and with my pups. Highly recommend!”
“Alyssa did such a great job watching my pup! Making sure she was fed and excercised even going as far as cleaning up a mess she made while she was gone! I will definitely be contacting her again if I need a dog watcher! 😊”
“Leonela is so great very attentive & caring with Bane. He loves her and is always happy to see her! Would always recommend her :)”
“Cheyenne is amazing! This was the first time we had to leave our dog for an extended period of time. Cheyenne was great at keeping me updated on how he was doing and all the fun he was having! He is a playful boy and needs quite a bit of attention, and Cheyenne was ready and willing. His energy is not always easy to manage, but we came home to a calm, relaxed boy! Cheyenne also took meticulous care of our gecko. She can be fussy with new people but warmed right up to Cheyenne! We returned home to a spotless house and happy animals! Overall Cheyenne was extremely mindful in every step of the care she provided and we will absolutely be reaching out again!”
About: House sitting services the dogs will be properly cared for and in good hands. They are in a caring and productive environment. When walking them on their walks they will be with me at all times. No where near out of my site, cause I have dogs of my own and know what it’s like to have the feeling or fear or losing our babies! In home, they will also be fed and watched over and taken Care of accordingly (if) specific instructions are left ex bathed, hair brushed, play time, walking time, outside time etc any medications (needed) or allergy medications (if needed) and will be given to them on time and when due. I have a lot of patience when it comes dogs and cats, all thats needed for them is some love and compassion and they can feel that energy. So I’d love to be of help by any means ! I am available full time all week , please feel free to book anytime ! We have a park right across the street and they will have a lot of playtime ! I have a fenced home to protect the fur babies from getting out, I care for pets in my home by simply giving them undivided attention, taking them for walks to the park or just around the neighborhood, family friendly loving environment. I do not take more than one client at a time just for the ease of parents and always to avoid confrontation with other dogs and keep the peace within their mind as well cause some pups have anxiety leaving their owners and being at a new place for the first time. So I always like to make it as comfortable and fun as possible. For boarding always include a bath before drop off, food/water bowl /treats/snacks/blankets/toys/bed/crate, anything you would love to bring, bring it that way they can be reminded of you while you’re away. :) My family is very involved and loves on the fur babies. My family is also growing and it’s not just me and my oldest I now have a toddler and nb and they simply love the pups when they are here. Last reminder a tip is not required but appreciated with that being said I ONLY accept cash tips. (Please and thank you) And please leave a review it really helps a lot (: thank you !
