Steven was amazing! I have a dog with anxiety and she was comfortable enough to be in his presence. He walked my other dog Sushi for a good period of time. He followed directions and went above and beyond walking Sushi but also cleaned my dog cage.

About: I recently relocated to Newark from Philadelphia. Growing up, my family always had a dog and a cat. As an adult I’ve fostered several pets, and I have adopted two cats. I’ve housesat and done drop-ins several times for friends with pets, in addition to being a sitter on Rover. I have a standard 9-5 workday and work from home most days. It's a joy to break up the day by spending time with your cat or dog on my lunch break or after work. Whether it's keeping a respectful distance while leaving food and water for a nervous cat, letting your pup take their time exploring on a walk, or making sure your playful pet is entertained, I'll always do my best to meet them where they are while caring for them. I have experience pilling dogs and cats, as well as caring for small wounds or ill pets.

Tashiyana is my pupper's new best buddy!! Clooney joins her for walks three days a week, every week for the last month... and it's been a huge help to me in the mornings. She arrives on time every time, with advanced notice. She is great working with schedule changes when needed and is an absolute ANGEL! Clooney gives her 5 happy butt wiggles, too!

Mykaela would make an amazing Rover pet sitter. She is an animal lover and exhibits patience and kindness to all animals, big and small. My Jack Russell, Sage, absolutely loves her. There is no doubt in my mind that Mykaela exhibits a great level of responsibility with pets left in her care and I would have no hesitation in using her as a trusted sitter for my baby.

Serhii provided exceptional care for my furry friend while I was away. From the moment I met Serhii, I could tell he had a genuine love and understanding of dogs. He not only ensured that my dog's basic needs were met, but he also went above and beyond to provide companionship, exercise, and affection.

Nayale has been a God send. She is incredibly reliable, punctual, and super sweet with our dog, Nala. She’s become Nala’s regular dog walker. We can always trust that Nala comes back home happily exhausted after getting a really great, long walk. 10/10. Very pleased with Nayale and would highly recommend.

Jenen and Lee are both super sweet and amazing pet parents!! They watched my cats for a week while I was on a trip and supplied me with pictures every day. They were very punctual with the timing of feeding and they kept the litter box areas clean. They were quick to ask me when they had concerns about one of my cats not eating, and were able to think on their feet when I was not able to answer immediately (sorry about that guys!) It was the first time I left my cats in someone else's care and they were the perfect people to ease my mind to the idea. Thanks Jenen and Lee!

I have known Herriette Rivera for over 9 years and throughout all of them, she has been a loving caretaker for 5 energetic shih tsus. Every time I am at her house, I can personally testify to her capability to love, connect with, and care for dogs. Not only does has she grown up with dogs, but on multiple occasions, I have asked her to watch my two dogs and she treated them with nothing but patience and care!
