I could tell my dog was so happy during her stay and she returned to us so tired from playing all day. Ashley is great at communicating, treated my dog as her own, and her dogs are so friendly!

We love taking our dog to Jessica for dog sitting. Our dog loves playing with her dog. She sends me videos of the dogs playing, which eases the anxiety of being away from her.

Ashly took great care of my Golden overnite. My baby came back happy, and even ate her food, which often doesn't happen when she is away from me. Thanks Ashly!

Elizabeth did an amazing job with Raz! I received multiple updates every day with how she was doing. I got back from vacation a day later than I expected and Elizabeth was able to keep my dog an extra night with no problem. She even ran to the pet store and got some ear cleaner for Raz when she noticed her ears were bothering her! Overall an awesome experience and you can tell Elizabeth cares a lot about these dogs. Will definitely book again!

Casandra was amazing. I was a first time customer and a bit uncertain how Rover worked. Casandra took the time to meet my dog and me in advance of my reservation to both answer my questions and allow my dog to acclimate to her overnight accommodations. Casandra took pictures of my dog playing and sent them to me daily - it totally put my mind at ease! I will definitely use Casandra again! Again, she was fantastic. Highly recommend her and her services!

Duncan had so much fun during his stay at Justin's, judging by the looks of the pictures that were sent and the fact he slept all day after he came home. Communication was great and was very responsive. Will book again!

We’ve used both the doggy daycare and long term boarding options with this service. I appreciated Scott took the time to get to know Missy’s background before our trip. Scott and Brinley took excellent care of our shy little girl. In no time she was playing confidently in the backyard and making new dog friends. We got lots of photos and updates along the way. She might have had a better vacation than her humans - thanks again!

Jasmine was excellent with watching two of my dogs, Toby and Leia! She already had a full house of her own but she made sure my pups were comfortable and happy while my partner and I were away. Highly recommend!

Alicia did a wonderful job in caring for our dog Gracie while we were away. The communication was excellent and we appreciated her taking Gracie on walks. A great experience; we will use her again and highly recommend her to others.

Had a great experience booking with Lucia! She took great care of our dog for 3 days and sent pictures/updates. She brought him to the dog park and he got lots of play time. Lucia was a great communicator too!

We came to Iowa for a wedding. Cory took good care of our 2 senior dogs (labs). One has separation anxiety that he was able to comfort and the other took a nap on his bed. He walked and fed them.

I had a very spoiled and rambunctious golden retriever. Jasper spent a few sessions training both me and my dog prior to a week long vacation where Jasper would be dog sitting for us. Rizzo matured so much in that week and he no longer pulls on the leash and the jumping up on folks has improved immensely. I highly recommend Jasper for all your dog training and sitting needs.

She was wonderful and I already rebooked with her. I got updates and I know that my dogs were happy. Her kids also helped and loved them. It was like they were just visiting in another family. They weren’t just in crates for days. They were with the family.

Patricia is easily the best sitter I’ve worked with on Rover. She has great communication, been excellent at following tasks specific to our dogs needs, sends plenty of photos, and it is clear that our Boca absolutely adores her and her family. Drop off is a breeze when my dog is thrilled to be there! I highly recommend her to care for your pet!

They did a great job taking care of my dog! I’ve had issues with other caregivers on Rover before with basic things like exercise and water being given but this time my dog came home seeming happy and fulfilled!

Amazing experience. Our dog gets homesick but Alexandra was there to help him adjust while we were out of town. He LOVED the big backyard and his new dog friend. Thank you for taking such care of our dog and giving us updates along the way - you went above and beyond.
