“Alexandra is my daughter and we have a four year old Cockerpoo called Lola . Alexandra helped with all the training of Lola from when she was a puppy she was quickly house trained and Alexandra taught her to sit give you her paw and to lay down and to chase and fetch the ball . Alexandra loves taking Lola on long walks and also takes her Grandads dog out on walks for him . I can highly recommend Alexandra to look after your dog either just for walks or for overnight care which she does quite often for me and for friends and family .She will treat your dog as if it’s her own and show lots of love and affection .”
About: I've been around dogs my whole life, ranging in sizes. My love for dogs is enormous and I have pet sat and walked for 2 years now and I'm currently a proud owner to two little dogs of my own. I'm currentley working full time from home so I have a fully flexible schedule to look after dogs, especially if you're looking for a sitter throughout the day. NOVEMBER - DECEMBER 2023* I’ve updated my calendar for availability but wanted to put a note that Tuesdays and Thursdays I’m available from 12:30 onwards. I have a large garden that's completely fenced off, I also have a car which means I'm able to travel quite freely, taking dogs out and about and also having the flexibility to get to places with ease. Being a fog owner myself, I understand the stress and anxiety that comes with leaving your dog with someone else, so no ask is too big in my book! I will always keep you updated and follow any and all rules you have for your pet.

“Fully recommend Shelbie. Dog sitting & house sitting for the weekend. Will definitely use her again and have told family & friends how delighted we were.”

“It is with great pleasure that we write this review for Kai and Sujeily, the remarkable house sitting couple we found through Rover.com. Their level of care and dedication surpassed our expectations, making our time away worry-free and our pets, including our beloved cat Charles, and dogs Moby and Maggie, incredibly happy. Even though we were unable to meet Kai and Sujeily in person prior to their house sitting, our initial video chat provided us with a sense of relief. They asked thorough questions, demonstrating a genuine interest in understanding our pets' routines, preferences, and unique personalities. Their attention to detail and genuine curiosity immediately instilled confidence in their ability to provide exceptional care. While the arrival process may have been slightly disjointed, as our family assisted with house sitting prior to their arrival, Kai and Sujeily handled the situation with absolute grace and professionalism. They seamlessly transitioned into the role of caretakers, ensuring a smooth and stress-free experience for both our pets and us. Their ability to adapt and connect with our furry family members, despite not being formally greeted, truly impressed us. Throughout their stay, we received regular updates in the form of delightful photos. Each snapshot captured the genuine affection and joy that Kai and Sujeily showered upon our pets. Their compliments and kind words about Charles, Moby, and Maggie warmed our hearts, reaffirming the love and care they provided. It was evident from the pictures that our pets adored their presence and were completely at ease in their care. In addition to their exceptional care for our cats and dogs, Kai and Sujeily graciously took on the responsibility of feeding our three chickens daily. Their willingness to go above and beyond in attending to all our pets' needs was truly commendable. Kai and Sujeily exuded a perfect blend of professionalism and warmth throughout their stay. They created a relaxed and comfortable environment for our pets, allowing them to feel secure and content in their absence. Simultaneously, their professionalism shone through in their respectful treatment of our home and their meticulous attention to detail. They left our house in impeccable condition, ensuring a seamless transition upon our return. We wholeheartedly recommend Kai and Sujeily as outstanding house sitters on Rover.com. Their exceptional level of care, professionalism, and genuine love for animals set them apart. If you are searching for reliable, compassionate, and attentive sitters who will treat your pets as their own, look no further. We are grateful to have found such exceptional individuals, and we will undoubtedly seek their services for our future house sitting needs. Thank you, Kai and Sujeily, for being the incredible caretakers that Charles, Moby, Maggie, and our chickens deserved. Your dedication and attention to detail were truly unparalleled, and we are confident that future clients will be fortunate to experience the same level of care and peace of mind that you provided to us. Liv & Ed”
“Julia and Spencer looked after my 2 male huskies when we went on holiday and have for a few previous times, they were attentive, provided us with updates and communication whenever we required, ensured they were safe and seen to at all times with consistent exercise and mental stimulation. Would use them again for whenever we need our dogs looking after”
About: I’ve had dogs throughout all of my life with a range of breeds. I currently have a husky who is absolutely full of energy so I’m used to dogs that need that little bit extra sometimes. I’ve looked after family members dogs when they have been away as well as other small furries. I’m used to meeting dogs needs, making sure they’re fed, have plenty of water, good walks, playtime, bathing and lots of cuddles (if they like them of course!) I do work full time as a social worker but have flexibility to work from home at times and I am free on evenings and weekends. I absolutely love being around dogs so it doesn’t feel like an extra chore or job as such. Due to the nature of my job, I am DBS checked which hopefully reassures you that your dog will be in good hands 🐶 Looking after pets in their own home, I try to understand their routine to keep things as familiar as possible for them to help them feel relaxed and at ease with me.
“Leanne is a responsible person who has a love for animals, cats and dogs especially. She can be trusted and I would not hesitate to leave a pet with her. Leanne’s enthusiastic and caring and your dog will always look forward to its walk or time with her!”
“We were delighted to have Karen stay and look after our elderly lad. Karen was very communicative throughout sending lots of photos and updates. Our lad was very sorry to see Karen go, which i think is the best feedback of all! Thanks again Karen, we would heartily recommend you to anyone.”
About: I lost my two pugs, they were mum and daughter in the last few years. I currently have no other pets in the house, and miss having dogs around so much! Not wanting the full time commitment, but mini breaks with a pooch around would be lovely! Im self employed and work part time, I can work my diary around pet care. I don’t work weekends. If I need to go into work it would be for a maximum of two hours at a time, but I can also keep my diary clear when pet sitting. I have a fenced partially lawned garden, and an access all areas in the house policy…I much prefer a dog in the room with me, and sofas are not off limits.
“This superstar house and pet sitter is amazing! She handled my home and fur babies with such love and care, it was like I never left. Every detail was attended to, and their knack for understanding my pets' needs was simply amazing. My house was sparkling, and my pets were as happy as clams. Truly a top-notch service & highly recommended.”
“Britt & Byron have taken great care of our dogs & home! Sent us regular updates whilst we were away & we have come back to a very clean home! Thank you both!”

Angela keeps us updated via text and WhatsApp and videos and pictures She is absolutely brilliant and would thoroughly recommend her in looking after your fur babies 🐶”
“Ludo is punctual, consistent, smiley and full of beans - which is to say, everything you and your dog are after from an experienced walker. Jolly but stern when required, on his watch the hounds will have fun without running amok. A trustworthy hand on the leash. Can't recommend him highly enough. Thanks Ludo!”
About: As well as having experience taking care of my own animals from dogs, to cats, to snakes, to goats, to chickens, to rats, I have practical experience from college and working as a kennel assistant. I have a triple distinction grade certificate for my level 3 national extended diploma course in animal management meaning I have sufficient knowledge in animal behaviours and communications. I am currently unemployed and am wanting to board animals, pet sit and dog walk as a career choice. There is no career choice that I would rather have than to work with animals so I am fully available! We have a medium-sized, fenced back garden for the dogs to explore, however i would much prefer to walk them outside of the house to allow them to adventure more. My house is located near a field and a nature reserve, perfect for providing sufficient enrichment and exercise for your dogs! As well as this, we have male, friendly dogs of our own who can help to socialise your dog. You will recieve photos and videos of your dog to show you how well they are getting on under my care.

About: I have taken care of dogs and cats since a very young age, horses, hamster mice gerbils, Guinea pigs and rabbits. I have done house/pet sitting previously for friends and family and I am trusted by anyone who knows me. I am currently working from home but I only work a couple of hours each day and it’s remotely, I am able to take breaks at any time. Which means I am very flexible in terms of availability. I would provide a safe environment for any pet that I am looking after, ensure things are done thoroughly as I understand the importance of different care needs. I also love to play with animals so can provide plenty of entertainment
About: Having owned dogs since being a child, I am well experienced in many breeds from pugs to labradors. My cocker spaniel “Eddie” lives at home full time and loves meeting new friends. We love exploring all over the country. Eddie has been from Cornwall to Inverness and loves visits to a beach. I own my own business so we can work around sittings and visits. We live near Wakefield centre with access to lots of safe, quiet walks. We have a large rear garden with secure fencing and a locked side gate. In summer the rear doors are open during the day and water is always topped up in the bowl. Food is given at routine times and all visitors have run of the house. We have ring cctv cameras at front and rear of the property. Our house is clean and smoke and child free.
