Nelly loves all her walks and days out with Amy, she always has a great time and comes back content and tired. I trust Amy with Nelly as she keeps me informed of what Nelly is doing and how she is throughout the day. I can really see that Nelly trusts Amy and is always excited to see her. I’m so pleased I have found Amy to help care for Nelly, 5/5 service.

Big thanks to Matt for looking after Bruno overnight for me. Had a meet and greet on Friday where Matt was met by the boisterous Bruno. Once settled, Matt seemed at ease with Bruno, despite his size. When I arrived home this morning, the house was as it was and Bruno was happy. Pictures and updates were send throughout. Thanks Matt, will definitely be using you again.

I could not be happier with the way Daniel looked after Sid, Sid was obviously happy and content and it made our little break away much better knowing we did not have to worry, Daniel is a pleasant young man and did a very good job I would highly recommend him, he went the extra mile cleaning up after Sid in the garden which was a very pleasant surprise.

Ive known chloe as having and owning dogs since ive met her. She is very loving towards her own dogs and care about others and loves to give attention to all other dogs varying from the smallest to the bigggest. Her gentle nature towards animals is her biggest feature as she shows care and thought to everything. She owns her own pet which is her dream and favourite pet; a golden retriever. Chloe loves taking her dog for various short/long walks and adventure and takes her parents family dogs out aswell. She welcomes friends and family’s dogs to her own home, taking them in and looking after them whenever they need someone to look after their pets.

About: I’ve been taking care of dogs for as long as I can remember, as we have had family dogs since I was born. I absolutely adore dogs, especially the ones that require you build trust with them first. I think it’s important that dogs emotional, psychological and physical needs are tended to to the highest proficiency. Our dogs have toilet breaks whenever they need, they get doggy snacks during the day, and they get cuddles constantly. I try to remain educated on the psychology of dogs and the care in which they need to be their happiest selfs. Mental stimulation is an important aspect of this. Our dogs get mental stimulation through regular walks in new places, they do activities that test their brain (food motivated), and they have a huge amount of toys to play with which are rotated on a regular basis. If your dog is in my care, yours will experience the same things as I’m committed to make sure your dog has the happiest stay possible! As someone who has used Rover myself whilst being abroad, I know how much you will miss your pup. During your dogs stay, I will make sure to send you regular photos and updates, to put your mind at ease and show you how your little dog is settling in. Currently, I have just left sixth form and so I am completely free for the entirety of the summer, making it far easier for me to take care of your bests on a 24/7 schedule! I have a fully fenced garden and two friendly dogs. To ensure absolutely no tensions between my dogs and yours, they shall eat separately and sleep separately, just to make sure that there are no tensions regarding food or space. I have a underfloor heated utility room where my dogs sleep, but your dog can choose where they sleep on the downstairs floor. Whilst on walks, your dog may be let off the lead in safe areas. However, this depends on the recall ability of the dog. (If you are uncomfortable with this, let me know, as I am perfectly happy to keep your dog on the lead at all times).

About: I’ve always loved dogs and have helped friends and family with walking, looking after and dog-sitting pets. Love going on long walks and would love to build a relationship with your pooch! I’m currently working full-time so would look for evening walks or weekend walks and dog sitting is also viable. Happy to work around whatever is needed. I live in a small and quiet village will access to large public footpaths as well as large fields and grass areas to walk your dog.

Olivia has looked after our boy a number of times now at our home. I was happy her taking him out places for walks as he loves the car. Her dog was happy being with my dog so they both love to go for a good run together. She keeps him on a extended lead as he will chase rabbits and little animals if seen. Always go to her when I need a dog sitter as she is fully trusted in our home and our boy loves her company and days out.

Madison is lovely, she agreed on short notice which I really appreciated. She was prompt and Sephi really seems to like her. I got updates through out the day with pictures and she did some training with Sephi which I’m grateful for as she’s still a puppy. I will definitely book with her to look after my little fur baby again!

About: I have grown up with dogs and have experience of looking after and handling a variety of breeds and size of dogs. I am able to walk, feed and administer medication. I am a university student looking for part time work. I would love to lend a hand to busy pet owners by providing either walks or home visits. I am available on weekdays (subject to availability) and weekends. I can allow the dog time to get used to me and hopefully build up a good relationship with them by regularly seeing them and taking them for walks
