“Kirra has been an amazing Rover since day 1! She is great about updating me with pictures and how my pups are doing when she comes by. She has also been great about last minute changes and remaining flexible with schedules. I recommend her to anyone!”
About: I work as a vet assistant at an emergency hospital, and have cared for dogs, cats, hamsters, Guinea pigs, mice, horses, and even zoo animals. I am comfortable handling a wide range of animals, and am currently planning on applying to veterinary school next fall. I work part time and work from home the rest of the time; I thus have lots of flexibility in my schedule. I don’t have set days that I usually work, but I update my schedule regularly in Rover. I’m usually up early because of my puppy, and I usually walk her twice a day. On the days that I’m not at the ER, I am home and thus can be out and about as much as needed to care for your pet. I offer drop in visits and walks for clients. I usually take dogs out for a walk so they can eliminate and get some fresh air, and I make sure they get plenty of water afterwards so they stay hydrated. I usually spend a bit of time playing and cuddling before I leave. I can give medications/food/treats as desired, and I am comfortable giving topical and oral medications as well as subcutaneous injectables.
About: Hi! I am a recent graduate looking to make some extra income. I love dogs and I have 2; a labradoodle named Jeter and a golden doodle named Lilo. They are both my loves! I want to help people with their dogs and play with them! I have watched a good amount of dogs in the past year for some family friends. I can do dog walking, drop ins, and over nights. I am good at following set directions, good with dogs, patient with animals who may be skiddish, and willing to learn whatever I need! I have a full time job but can check in or walk your pups morning and night and even mid day! I work about 8 hours a day but can check on them at least once in the middle of the day if needed I can’t take pets in my home as I have 2 roommates but in others homes, I am respectful of other houses and property. I understand it’s the dogs home and respect their boundaries while also making sure they have fun and are comfortable.
“Rachel walks my dog twice a week to give him some extra exercise while I’m working and she is great!! She always provides updates and pictures after each walk and is very quick to respond to my messages. Thank you, Rachel!”
About: I have just recently moved to the VA beach area from PA where I worked as a groomer's assistant and sales associate for a Mom and Pop Pet Store since October 2001. I volunteered for many pet fairs, worked on farms and ranches and helped train abused dogs for the local animal shelter, fostered a lovely Pit Bull in 2009 who was saved from abuse. Lua happily was adopted within 3 months to a wonderful home on the outskirts of Philadelphia! My Mother was also a dog groomer and worked out of our house for 20 years, so I've constantly been around them my whole life. I also grew up with German Shepherds and Great Danes. Back in 2008 I adopted a Chihuahua that got dropped off at the Pet Store from a couple that saved her from being abused but they couldn't keep her, so I brought her home. Her and my German Shepherd became best friends and were the cutest things to see when they would go for walks! Work right near my home so I am pretty much always in the area! ***With enough notice I can request my schedule to be as attentive as possible to you and your dog's needs.*** Flexible and friendly! I love and absolutely adore dogs and would rather always spend my time around them! I am knowledgable and built with common sense. Reliable and trust worthy. Contact me with any further questions! I am currently in between jobs so your pups and kitties will have all my attention! Any special requirements can be discussed at the time of meeting! I have a backyard but no fence. Therefore your dogs will always be leashed when on walks. Any special needs or requirements can be discussed.
About: I've taken care of pets since I was young. I currently have a cat, turtle, and a bird, and have had multiple other family pets. I have trained my parent's dog since she was a puppy to perform assisted care for them. I used to work for a pet store for multiple years before I moved. I have a flexible schedule so I am home 90% of the week. I am a college student graduating in December and only have school 2 days a week. My sister has a dog in our apartment, but I have a patio and take her out regularly. I can take our pups together or solo and have a kennel and multiple gates if you would prefer them separated. We have a large living room space for playtime and/or reinforced training. We have multiple dog beds throughout the apartment and have many toys for them to play with.
“Tea is extremely responsive, punctual and trustworthy. My dog Nala absolutely adores her and I am very comfortable knowing she is cared for by Tea. Would recommend to anyone needing a walker.”
“Julia has been the greatest pet caregiver I have had. She treated my pets like they were her own and they love her. She is very responsible in adhering to your wishes for diet, exercise, and medications. I have two older pets (a tabby cat and a Bischon Frises) who need a lot of extra care and frequent potty breaks. I was able to leave them under her care with no worries. I give her 5 stars and would recommend her for all kinds of pets. She has expertise in care of chinchillas, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds, snakes, spiders, or many other exotics!”
“Emily did an amazing job walking my dog Skye. She took a great approach to avoid my dog chasing ducks and geese and any other possible unfortunate incident as well as playing with Skye when having zoomies. Thank you Emily for being careful and patient with Skye!”
“Landon is great with Bella and she is always tuckered out when I pick her up and she gets home. I highly recommend Landon! Bella has both done dog walks and daycare with him and it is a great experience! 5 stars!”
“We’ve used Katie’s services several times now and could not recommend a better dog walker and wonderful human. She’s so attentive to our dogs needs and you can tell how much Kotah likes her too. She’s a great communicator and super flexible. We’ve had a lot of dog walkers prior and Katie is the best one yet.”
“Celeste is a great candidate for DogVacay she is responsible and is great with animals! She has experience with dogs and knows where to go for great walks and what places allow pets! She's a great mom to her human and fur baby and would be a great pet sitter”
“Diligent and trustworthy, Sephora is always in care giving mode! Ready to give your fur baby the love and attention they need while you're away with the ease of mind knowing they're in good hands. Sephora is a pet owner herself and knows the difficulties of having to say goodbye at the doorway but would love to say hello at yours!”
“Destiny was so great. Very reliable and trustworthy. Equally as important she was sweet and kind to our greyhound. We definitely recommend her and will not hesitate to use her services in the future.”
“We have had her watch our dogs twice and she couldn't have been more flexible, reliable, and overall fantastic! Highly recommend!”
“I would recommend Katie for petsitting jobs. Katie is great with animals and can earn the trust and affection of those she meets. She is responsible and clean, doing what she needs to do without micromanagement. Katie follows through with the guidelines of the position and can go above and beyond the requirements when appropriate. I trust Katie as a petsitter.”
“Ashley is amazing! My senior chihuahua is usually extremely attached to me and will sometimes refuse to eat or come out of her cage around strangers. The moment we brought her into Ashley’s home, it was clear my pup would have no problems. After staying for a week, she didn’t want to leave…she loved the attention and cuddles and I loved the photo updates and seeing her so relaxed. She has definitely created a second family and I’m sure they’ll be seeing more of eachother!”
“Sarah was so sweet with Huey! We just adopted our pup so he was a bit nervous, but warmed up to her quickly during our meet and greet. She took great care of him on the walk!”
“Venessa is amazing with my fur babies! Jack and Juno absolutely love her! They are miniature Dachshunds and full of energy and mischief, so they are a handful. I never have to worry about them at all when I leave them in Vanessa's care.”
“Ashley was fantastic as usual. Unfortunately, a raise every time you come over. Hopefully the next time will be a sunny day in autumn!! Thank you! You’re excellent and make our lives easier”
