Caitlin did an amazinh job with our cat David! He's normally very shy, but Caitlin got several pictures of him out and about and even played with him a little bit. So glad we had Caitlin to keep an eye on our dude while we were away.

Amazing! One of my pups was nervous and barking when first meeting her. She was able to calm him down and properly drop in on my two babies. Would recommend over and over again!

It was my first time using Rover and I was nervous about leaving my 5 month old puppy. Hannah offered to come over to meet us before our trip, which made me feel much better. She visited my pup 7 times — plus an extra visit when we asked if we could return home a little later. She was extremely communicative, wrote the most detailed reports about what Betty was up to, and my pup just loved her. It is hard to leave your fur baby but I feel comfortable now that she has Hannah. We’ll be asking for her help in the future for sure.

For the first meet-and-greet, Carissa was on-time and made our old girl Bailey feel immediately comfortable with her. We feel great about Carissa taking care of our pup when we need to leave her for a bit longer than we’d like!

Audrey is my go-to every time I need someone to watch my cat. She sends the cutest pictures and updates. She is also great about communication around when she’ll be dropping in, if there are any changes to her schedule, etc. Thanks again Audrey!!

Kenny has been around pets (mostly dogs and cats) his whole life. As his father I can say that he has always been loving and caring to all the pets we’ve had as he was a youngster. Now that he is an adult he cares for his current dog and cat deeply. He gives them all the love and care and exercise they need. I do believe it is the reason why his dog Rhubarb and his cat Ella are such good pets and such a joy to be around.

Zianna loves to love the animal all while respecting the animal's space. Best believe, your animal will be in great hands in Zianna's presence.

Rachel has helped take care of my pups (all 7 of them!) for close to a decade now, and has done a phenomenal job every time. She is the kindest, most caring, sweetest, hardest working, most animal loving pet sitter anyone could hope to find, and will always put your pet’s health and wellbeing first and foremost in every decision she makes. Our dogs LOVE going to see their “2nd mother”, as they’re always treated as members of the family every time she takes care of them.

Rhea is such a caring, responsible person. She is great with dogs of all breeds and treats each as if they are her own- giving them plenty of exercise, socialization and love! I wouldn't hesitate to leave my dog with her while I'm away and would recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for a four-legged family member.
