“Thank you so much for watching Texas! Jamie and her family were so good with our dog Texas. We will definitely want Jamie to watch over him again!”
“When I say Olivia and Trent are the definition of “awesome” I mean it! My Billie is very shy when meeting new people (he accidentally pooped when he met Trent for the first time), but I was assured that he would have an amazing time, and he did and still does! Your pups are in excellent, caring hands with Olivia and Trent! Billie and I absolutely love these guys!”

“Top notch dog sitting! Isabel was wonderful. She sent pictures throughout the day playing with my very active puppy. Her house was big and very clean. Will definitely book with her again!!”
“I used Katy for a one day doggy day care and had the most wonderful experience. My pup was well cared for with multiple walks and picture updates on her day. Katy was easy to communicate with for meet and greet and more than welcoming to assist me with anything. I have a hard time leaving my girl with anyone but I felt so comfortable that I booked our vaca with their family. I had such a positive experience down to the "take home package" she created with treats, printed out pictures, and a homemade card. Can't say enough good things about Katy and her sweet weenie dog Oscar.”
“Julia is so sweet, and communicates very well. We got great updates all day, and her kids were so loving with our boys. We will definitely be using Julia again.”
“I've booked Tambre as a dog sitter and boarder for the past 2 month and could not be happier with the service! Tambre is a professional and I trust her with caring for my dog Rylie, and appreciate her doggy advice! She has great availability and graciously accommodates my long work hours. I always receive photos during Rylies stay and have peace of mind that she is having a great time playing with friendly dogs in a large backyard! I am grateful to continue to book with Tambre and would recommend it to any dog parents out there!”
“As always, Sarah, Nick and the entire family are wonderful with our Romeo. They are incredibly communicative and are dog lovers. This is one of the few places where we know that Romeo will not be super anxious. We live in Austin and will opt to fly out of San Antonio when possible so that we can leave Romeo with Sarah.”
“Jillian was very friendly and hospitable. My dogs immediately took to her. Jillian was attentive and great at communicating. Highly recommend!!!”
“If u contract with Tamara u r getting a dependable, dog loving person She has had black labs ( well trained by her)as well as other breeds .. her pets are well fed well exercised well trained. Well LOVED.”
“This was my first time ever using Rover or any pet sitter for my older dog, and I couldn’t have asked for a better pet sitter! Jasmine was wonderful! As soon as I met her, I felt immediately comfortable; she is so pleasant and has a wonderful calm energy. She took an active interest and was receptive to my dog’s needs, and even provided video updates during his daycare. I will definitely use Jasmine for all of my pet sitting needs! Highly recommend her!!”
“Faith was great with Manu. She was very informative with anything a pet owner would want to know and sent photos. Responded very quickly and was very flexible with any changes as well. Overall she was a great person and Manu really seemed to enjoy his stay there.”
“Liz will be like family and your pets new best friend! I’ve never met a more loving and caring person…and especially when it comes to furbabies. I’ve known Liz for more years that I care to admit (don’t age me) and have seen her go out of her way to care for homeless animals as if they were the ones she has at home. While she can’t always catch and rescue a stray, she will provide food and comfort and names knowing they are in the area. You will not have to worry when you leave your furbaby in Liz’s care. Bonus points: she as amazing taste in music!”
“Omg Katie was PHENOMENAL with my dogs! They are both pretty high maintenance and she was soo patient and sweet to them! Took lots of pictures for me so I never had to worry about how happy they were! She’s the best!”
“My first time using Rover and she was absolutely amazing with my 3 month old puppy! She sent many pictures, videos and updates which was very appreciated. 10/10 recommended her, thank you!”
“I have a rescue pibble mix, a senior lab, and a senior cattle dog. What I received late notice to attend my father funeral, I was left with little boarding options. Luckily Jenn was available, and did an outstanding job, taking care of my best friends. My pitbull mix had a traumatic life prior to me, and definitely has some behavioral triggers, which she handled brilliantly. I wish I could post a picture, and it would say everything. I was lucky to have her watch them. Couldn't have been in better hands.”
“I dropped off my fur baby with Cindy and her family this past weekend and absolutely loved them! They provided me with text updates of my fur baby running around the yard, playing with toys, and going on a walk! They even gave her a bath! Definitely will be coming back to Cindy!”
About: With over a decade of dedicated pet care experience, I bring a wealth of knowledge and a genuine passion for animals to every pet sitting assignment. What sets me apart from other sitters is my commitment to tailoring my care to the unique needs of your beloved pets. My special skills include: Puppy Training Expertise: I excel at working with young pups, helping them learn essential commands, housebreaking, and socialization skills. Your puppy will receive the guidance and positive reinforcement they need to become well-behaved companions. Senior Pet Care: I have extensive experience in caring for senior pets, including administering medications, providing mobility support, and adapting routines to accommodate their specific requirements. Your older furry friend will receive the gentle care and attention they deserve. Customized Care Plans: I understand that every pet is different, and I take the time to create personalized care plans tailored to your pet's unique personality, preferences, and medical needs. Constant Communication: I believe in keeping you informed and reassured during your absence. I provide regular updates, photos, and even video calls so you can see firsthand how happy and content your pet is in my care. Safety First: Your pet's safety is my top priority. I am certified in pet first aid and CPR, ensuring I can handle any emergency situation with competence and composure. In summary, my extensive experience, specialized skills, and unwavering dedication to the well-being of your pets make me the ideal choice for pet sitting. Your pets will receive the highest level of care and attention, allowing you to travel with peace of mind, knowing they are in capable and loving hands. Pet care is an integral part of my daily and weekly routine, and I prioritize it to ensure your pets receive the best care possible. Here's how pet care fits into my schedule: Daily Routine: Morning Care: I start my day by attending to your pets' immediate needs, which may include feeding, walking, or administering medications if necessary. I ensure they are comfortable and content before I begin my other tasks. Midday Check-Ins: For clients who require midday visits, I make sure to check in on your pets, provide them with some companionship, and attend to any specific requirements. This helps break up the day for your pets and ensures they are not left alone for extended periods. Evening Care: In the evening, I dedicate time to your pets' feeding, playtime, and any additional care they may need. This ensures they are relaxed and happy before bedtime. Overnight Stays (if requested): For clients who prefer overnight pet sitting, I stay with your pets throughout the night, providing constant company, monitoring, and any necessary care. This is especially beneficial for pets who may have separation anxiety or medical needs. Weekly Routine: Regular Exercise: I incorporate regular exercise into my weekly routine, ensuring dogs receive their recommended daily physical activity through walks, playtime, and outdoor adventures. Training Sessions: If you've requested puppy training or have a dog in need of obedience reinforcement, I schedule training sessions into the weekly routine to work on specific commands and behaviors. Grooming and Hygiene: I make sure that your pets' grooming and hygiene needs are met. This includes brushing, bathing, and maintaining their coat and overall cleanliness. Health Checkups: I conduct weekly health checkups to monitor your pets' well-being, noting any changes in behavior, appetite, or health that may require attention. Communication with Clients: Throughout the week, I maintain open lines of communication with you, providing updates on your pets' activities, health, and any noteworthy incidents. By integrating pet care seamlessly into my daily and weekly routines, I can provide consistent and reliable care for your pets, ensuring they remain happy, healthy, and content in your absence. Your pets' well-being is my top priority, and I am committed to maintaining their routines and meeting their unique needs with the utmost care and attention. Whether caring for pets in my home or a client's home, safety, trust, and creating a secure environment are paramount in my approach to pet care. Here's how I ensure the well-being of pets in both settings: Caring for Pets in My Home: Pet-Proofed Environment: My home is meticulously pet-proofed to eliminate potential hazards. Toxic substances, small objects, and other dangers are safely out of reach. Electrical cords are secured, and windows and doors are checked for escape routes. Secure Outdoor Space: If I have a yard or outdoor area, it's securely fenced to prevent pets from wandering off. I also ensure there are no holes or gaps that pets could use to escape. Supervised Playtime: Pets in my care are never left unsupervised, especially if they are interacting with other animals. I closely monitor their playtime to ensure it's safe and enjoyable for all. Clean and Sanitary Conditions: I maintain a clean and hygienic environment. Food and water dishes are washed regularly, litter boxes are cleaned promptly, and sleeping areas are kept comfortable and clean. Separate Spaces for Different Pets: If I'm caring for multiple pets from different families, I provide separate spaces to prevent conflicts and ensure each pet's safety and comfort. Emergency Preparedness: I am prepared for emergencies with a well-stocked pet first-aid kit and knowledge of basic first aid procedures. I have a plan in place for immediate veterinary care if needed. Caring for Pets in the Client's Home: Security Measures: I respect your home's security and privacy. I ensure that doors and windows are securely locked when entering and leaving your property. I also maintain discretion regarding your absence. Consistency: I prioritize maintaining your pet's familiar routines, including feeding times, walking routes, and playtime. This helps reduce stress for your pet in your absence. Communication: I keep an open line of communication with you while you're away, providing daily updates and photos to reassure you that your pet is safe and well-cared for. Respect for Your Property: I treat your home with respect, cleaning up after myself and ensuring that your property is in the same condition as when you left. Emergency Protocols: I am well-prepared for emergencies and have access to your pet's medical information, including any necessary medications and contact information for your veterinarian. Trust and Privacy: I understand the importance of trust and maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and the details of our pet care arrangement. In both scenarios, my top priority is the safety and well-being of your pets, combined with maintaining trust and respecting your property and privacy. Whether caring for pets in my home or yours, I create a secure and loving environment where your furry family members can thrive.
