Codey is a former co-worker and friend of mine who watched my dog for me when I would go on vacation. She is amazing with animals and truly cares about the pets in her care. She was willing to take my dog to the vet multiple times while I was gone and always contacted me with any concerns that arose. We also volunteered at the wildlife center together and she constantly strives to grow her knowledge on care of exotic animals (including snakes, turtles, lizards, etc.) and is incredibly hard working. I would entrust Codey with any of my pets! 🙂

5-stars, no question! Thank you Katie for taking such good care of our boy, Cosmo, and making sure he had everything he needed. Katie was super friendly and knowledgeable. And provided lots of great updates on our young, energetic German Shepherd as he ran around her big backyard and got to play with other dogs all week. Perfect for him! And for us. It's clear he had a great time and was well cared for. Will 100% be using her services again.

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Faith, a student of mine, who is applying to become a dog walker and caretaker on Rover. I have known Faith for many years, and I am confident in her abilities as a pet-sitter due to her exceptional qualities and experiences. While she was surrounded by pets her entire life, Faith's passion for animals became evident when she welcomed her border collie, Bingo, into her life at the age of twelve. Faith's dedication and determination led her to teach Bingo over 100 tricks and participate in dog agility classes together. Their bond was remarkable, and they worked diligently to earn Bingo's certification as a Canine Good Citizen. Faith's history in training and understanding canine behavior truly sets her apart. Having grown up surrounded by various pets, including cats and chickens, Faith possesses years of experience caring for animals. She is equally adept at meeting the needs of cats as she is with dogs, as evidenced by her deep understanding and natural affinity for feline companions. Faith can read their behaviors, provide the necessary care, and create a nurturing environment. Her love for cats is evident through her playful interactions and patient approach, as demonstrated by her endearing relationship with her mischievous and spirited cat, Nelly. Faith is currently a proud owner of a rescue border collie named Little Pip, who exemplifies her remarkable abilities as a pet caretaker. Little Pip is well-behaved and possesses a gentle and sweet nature, a testament to Faith's training and nurturing. Her knowledge of animal behavior allows her to understand their needs and emotions, enabling her to provide the appropriate care and attention required. One of Faith's notable strengths is her ability to read animals and establish a connection with them. She is attuned to their signals and can effectively respond to their needs. Faith is both gentle and firm when necessary, demonstrating a balanced approach to handling animals. Her playfulness and enthusiasm make her an ideal companion, ensuring that pets under her care receive not only responsible attention but also a fun and engaging experience. Faith's sense of responsibility is unwavering. She takes her commitments seriously and can be relied upon to provide exceptional care to any pet entrusted to her. Her genuine love and concern for the well-being of animals drive her to go above and beyond to ensure their happiness and safety. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Faith as a pet-sitter. Her extensive experience, training, and profound understanding of animals make her an excellent candidate for this role. Faith's responsible nature, combined with her playful demeanor, guarantees that any pet under her care will receive exceptional attention and care. I have complete trust in Faith's abilities as a pet owner and am confident that she will excel in her endeavors as a pet walker and caretaker. - Katrina

Vanessa and her family were great with Coco. It was my first time boarding her alone since my other dog had passed, so I was a bit nervous. She had a great time and I received pictures and videos which helped put my mind at ease. Highly recommend, and will definitely use her again.

Noura was great! My dog is quite active and Noura was prepared. She sent photos and updates over my pups stay. She is friendly and had high communication before and during my dogs stay with her. I am new to the area and don’t know many people that could have watched my dog, Noura proved to be a great option. She was everything I was looking for and what my dog needed!

My first time using Rover and Denika was amazing! Benji hadn’t been socialized with other dogs yet so I was super worried. But she took good care of him and he made some new doggy friends! I also got plenty of pictures and videos to keep my mind at ease.
