Emily babysit our 7-month old Pomsky puppy, and did a wonderful job! I would highly recommend her to anyone, as she was very accommodating and helped ensure a smooth experience.

This was my first trip away with Carina staying with my cat Charlie and I couldn’t have been happier. Carina was diligent about following care instructions and was so fantastic about keeping me updated with photos and videos of her stay with Charlie. Charlie can be a little fearful at times and she was very quickly at ease with Carina. Carina is very cat savvy and lets the cat set the pace of their interaction with her. There is nothing better than being far away and seeing photos and videos of your slightly shy cat looking completely relaxed and playing! It was also very lovely to come home after traveling to my home looking neat and clean. Thank you for everything, Carina!

Justin was able to save us from a last-week cancellation and I would certainly recommend booking with him. He has top tier professional communication and is incredibly accomodating, as he strives to understand your dog's needs - as well as your own - from the outset. As an added bonus, be left our house even cleaner than he found it.

Just perfection. I always worry about my cats when I go away. They love company and get anxious when left alone too long. I was peaceful as could be this time. They took excellent care of my cats and home. Super communication as well.

Maggie is Outstanding! She is friendly, warm, great communication. We have one dog that does not always take her meds the first time. Maggie shared a trick that worked during our week’s trip. Thank you, Maggie, for making our trip possible! Our girls loved getting to spend such time with you:)

Emily is an amazing caretaker! She’s been an excellent communicator from the start and immediately connected w my cat Moo at our intro meeting, which put everyone at ease during her house sit. Emily was super accommodating to MooMoo’s medical, dietary, and general care needs. I felt super comfortable with her looking after my lil bb and staying at my place. So happy to have found her! Highly recommend Emily as a trustworthy and sweet person to work with.

Steph went above and beyond to care for mayas needs. I was worried with Mayas separation anxiety but Stephanie has the ability to calm any dog. Excellent experience! Highly recommend. Steph is now my number 1 ?

Jenny is a phenomenal caretaker for our high anxiety little pitbull. She kept us updated and worked through our dogs anxiety and they became great friends. Jenny also went way above and kept our home super clean and tidy. 10 out of 10 would recommend Jenny and we are looking forward to having her stay with our girl again! Thank you so Jenny!

I've had some excellent Rover sitters before, but Benji is in a whole other league! They are so loving and communicative and thoughtful, and really well-attuned to the needs of animals and human companions alike. I highly recommend Benji for anxious and/or neurodivergent pet-lovers in particular--they totally, totally get it! My partner and I think of our kitties as our babies, and travel induces a lot of anxiety for us because we hate the idea of leaving the cats alone. Benji was the perfect antidote to our anxiety; they have a wonderful and reassuring presence, asked all the right questions during our meet-and-greet, and overcommunicated before and throughout our trip to reassure us they were present and reliable (but were also quick to tell us they could scale back on communication if we preferred). We also received lots of fun pics throughout Benji's stay and had the pleasure of viewing our kitties and home through another person's (very generous) eyes! When my partner and I returned home, the house was in better condition than we left it, and Benji even left some fun treasures and personal touches for us to enjoy. Most importantly, our kitties were happy, healthy, and in good spirits. They usually hide for a couple days after a big change, but this time they were back to their old cuddly, demanding routines within 30 seconds. I highly, highly recommend Benji. They are a special person with a big heart, and we feel grateful that we've found such a safe, comfortable companion for the kitties--and made a new human friend in the process. Thank you, Benji!

This was our first time using Rover and we can’t emphasize enough how comfortable Mel made us. She answered all our questions and guided us. We had our trepidation about opening our home but we are so glad we found her, she has such a calming, understanding and fun energy that put us at ease. She is very trustworthy and we were very comfortable trusting her with our fluffy boy and our home. She was awesome and sent us pictures and updates everyday. Our fluffy boy even missed her when we came back home. We will definitely call her first whenever we need a pet sitter. Every time we had left our pup at someone’s home the whole ordeal was too stressful for our fluffy butt, leaving him at home with Mel eliminated all that unnecessary stress and we came back to a happy calm pup. Thank you so much!

Chandler served as an exceptional pet sitter for our dog Cleo during our week-long absence. Demonstrating outstanding care for our elderly canine, Chandler excelled in communication, offering us daily updates accompanied by photographs. It was clear that Cleo, despite her initial apprehensiveness, quickly grew fond of Chandler. She provided Cleo with neighborhood strolls, trips to her beloved pet store for treats, and ample cuddle time. Upon our return, it was evident Cleo missed Chandler, as she searched for her around the house.

Mikaela did a great job taking care of my dog and cat while I was away for 5 days. Came home to a happy, exercised dog and a very clean home. She communicated well and generally seems very reliable and responsible. Will definitely hire again and no reservations in recommending her.

The way in which Iris loves and cares for her cat Smokey, you can see by his interactions with her how much he trusts and loves her as well. She has come to take care of my two cats numerous times and they are similarly very comfortable around her, seeking attention and cuddles. I trust her both as a person and pet owner!

Alycia was such a great sitter for my Pomeranian! He can be a handful with his meds and his temperament, but Alycia took good care of him while I was away. She sent lots of pictures and kept me updated, so I had peace of mind. I definitely plan to book with her the next time I’m out of town. Small dog approved!
