Laurie was our first overnight sitter, and our dog seems to have had a great experience! Laurie was super responsive and sent lots of pictures and updates daily (or twice a day). And our dog clearly loved her. Would recommend 10/10!

Nina and her husband took excellent care of my two Bengals. Their “cat” room was full of toys, trees and shelves to play. My female usually gets really stressed at cat sitters and refuses to eat for a few days. With Nina, she never went on a hunger strike. Both my cats were very well fed and were given excellent play time to burn off their extra high energy as Bengals. After a week i started to think my two cats liked them more than me haha. I highly recommend and will be a returning customer. ?

We boarded our dog Jasper with Char for the long weekend and he loved his vacation stay at her place. She took really good care of him and even took him on hikes! Char is passionate about dogs and we could clearly tell Jasper really liked her the moment they met. He went up to her instantly and leaned on her. Char is very easy to work with and was flexible and very accommodating. Would totally board him again with Char!

I have now used Michelle twice to watch my dog Luna while I traveled for a week and she does an amazing job. Her and her daughter Hailey take great care of Luna and I’m comforted to have Luna in their care while I’m away. She sends daily pictures and updates and gives Luna lots of love. I am grateful to have found her as a sitter!

Loran is a true animal lover. He's also very sweet, kind and responsible. As a child, he grew up with a dog and has had four golden retrievers during his adult life. He will take good loving care of your animal while you are away. You can trust that your animal will be in good hands!

Yue was amazing with my 4 month old kitten! She got so much great playtime and socialisation, and Yue even took the time to trim her claws, which is tough with an energetic baby. I received pictures and videos throughout. I would absolutely board my cat with Yue again.

This is our third time having Dora watch our dog. He now gets so excited to see her during drop off. We love all of her updates, and our dog comes back tired from the walks and play time with her dog. :)

Our Cali had a great stay with Michele. Michele obviously knows a lot about dogs and made Cali feel comfortable when she first arrived. Michele walked her daily and kept us updated every day with photos and texts on all that happened that day. Cali came home happy. I look forward to using Michele again for dog sitting and highly recommend her.

We found Demi to be extremely knowledgeable about dogs and she genially loves taking great care of them. Charlie was well taken care of during his stay and enjoyed hanging out with her beautiful dogs. At the end of the stay our little dog was so attached to her. Going forward we plan on using Demi for all our pet sitting needs. So happy to have found her. I would highly recommend Demi to all my friends and colleagues for their pet sitting needs.

My dog Dudu stayed 9 days with Erica’s family. It’s the first time we left Dudu behind for so long, we were worried at first, but Erica and her husband took such a good care of him, we’re very satisfied with his stay. They have a big yard for Dudu to run and they also took him out for walking and running. Their dog Emmitt gets along with Dudu very well. Erica also sent me lots of updates about Dudu. So it was a good experience for all of us, I’ll definitely send him back when needed :)

Wendy and her daughter were so wonderful for me and my dog, Oliver! Wendy was kind and communicative and I could tell Ollie had the best time with them while I was gone overnight. He seemed comfortable and had a big grin on his face when I picked him up!! It’s also so wonderful that they have a backyard and another dog for him to play with!

I never write reviews but Jeff really helped me and my dogs out after there was an issue with their initial Rover when I was on vacation. He stepped in and they were in great hands 24/7 so I didn't have to worry about a thing. My new go-to Rover!
