Rachelle did a great job watching my dog at my home for the weekend. She handled some walk difficulties my pup gave her very well, and I came home to a well cared for dog. Will use again.

Emily was wonderful with our three pets including our reactive anxious dog! She was also very communicative throughout the weekend with photos and followed instructions very well.

Timothy did a great job house sitting for a week and taking care of our cat, including giving her her twice daily asthma inhaler. We received lots of photo and video updates and the apartment was left cleaner than when we had left

Justin was absolutely fantastic with my dog Isa. I got regular updates and when I came home, I could tell that Isa was happy and enjoyed her week with Justin. Would highly recommend Justin for anyone looking for a dog sitter at home.

Allison was a great house and pet sitter. She provided regular updates and when I got home my apartment was clean and my doggy was happy. My dog is reactive which makes me nervous when I leave her with sitters but Allison was reassuring and I was glad Mae had no issues.

Lily is a fantastic person and truly knowledgeable when it comes to dogs. She cared for my shy and fearful little dog for the first time last week, and they were best friends by the time I got home. Lily is a caring person who truly loves dogs and understands them. She is also punctual, communicative, and flexible. I had an emergency while Lily cared for my dog, and although Lily had other plans, she changed them to stay with my dog, which suffers from severe separation anxiety. I was amazed at her compassion and understanding, and I will deffitely work with her again because she won over my little guy. I got home, and although he greeted me, he played with Lily, which is rare. Thank you, Lily, you truly saved us.

Alona watched over my two dogs while I was away on a work trip, and she was great with communicating/sending updates with cute pictures. She was also flexible and understanding when timing needed to change a little, and asked great questions during our neet and greet. Definitely would recommend her and will be asking her to stay with them again!

We highly recommend Joseph!! He was great! Mimi, our 9 year old rescue, was comfortable with him from the initial meet and greet. Joe is very personable, capable, punctual, thorough, and dependable. We received regular updates of Mimi and returned to a happy dog in a neat and tidy condo!

Mia is so great. She has previously taken care of our cat and is fantastic so we used her again. She sends daily updates with photos and videos, our cat LOVES her, and she is super attentive to every detail (including leaving our home in great condition). Absolutely recommend her!

Navya took care of our dog Crow and house sat for us for three weeks while we were away. We could not be more satisfied. :-) She was very responsive and easy to communicate with before her stay and during her stay. She took our dog on long walks, bathed her and loved her. She asked questions about care in detail - even some that I had not thought about. Also, she took very good care of our house and everything was cleaner than when we left it upon return. I would be more than happy to recommend Navya to anyone. Zeynep

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Leslie is. From the start of our communication to the day we had our meet and greet, I had a good feeling about her due largely to her excellent communication. My two dogs are a handful and I interviewed several sitters before meeting Leslie. I am always apprehensive about leaving my dogs because of how high energy they are, but she put my mind at ease with thoughtful/introspective statements about her approach to and experience dog sitting. My usually skittish and guarded Silky Terrier warmed up to Leslie right away and in one of the early pictures was belly up on the couch waiting for attention and pets. Leslie kept the dogs on their schedule with long Arboretum walks and gave them the best possible care I could ask for. As others have mentioned, she was transparent with arrival/departure times and communicative with pics and texts during the visit. She kept my home tidy and loved my dogs - what more could anyone ask for in a dog sitter? Leslie is not only the type of person I want taking care of my dogs, she is the type of person I would love to have as a friend. She even stepped in to water my plants while I was gone on another trip! She’s truly one of Rover’s best.

Elmer was amazing to work with! He watched our pup for 8 nights at our house and provided daily updates and photos. He is a great communicator and it was so nice to be able to relax on vacation knowing our dog was in good hands. Our house was left spotless. Will absolutely use Elmer’s services again.

Ann did great with Rufus! He loved hanging with her and is already excited for her to come over again. Ann was very responsive when I texted for pictures to help me miss Rufus a little less, and took great care of my home while sitting for Rufus. Highly recommend Ann for sitting services!
