Bianca was communicative throughout our trip sharing photos and videos multiple times a day. She was flexible and creative when our older pup decided she wasn't going to eat for the first two days of the trip due to anxiety caused by our absence. Without a doubt we would love to work with Bianca in the very near future!

Kristina did an amazing job with our cat. We scheduled a pre-call prior to her taking care of the cat. She listened to details and followed all instructions. She was always on time! She’s the type of pet sitter anybody would be lucky to have, allowing you to enjoy your time away without having to worry so much about your pet. When I need another sitter, she’ll definitely be the first person I return to.

This team, Chloe and Sheila, were great! They were flexible with the times as this is the first time I used Rover. They communicated well and responded to texts promptly. Nate looked happy in the pictures they sent me. What a relief to know my fur baby was taken care of like he was theirs. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Ashley was wonderful to work with! She was communicative, prompt, and great with our large dogs. I loved that she came with little treats and she was so sweet to leave jerky for the dogs when she left. We will definitely be using her again.

Nora spends quality time with them after feeding and walking them ,when she forwards pictures of our dogs to us they look so happy .She always goes above and beyond in the care of our dogs.

I can't say enough AMAZING things about Cait! She has been a lifesaver during our trip. We had some unexpected situations and she was there to help take care of everything and put our minds at ease. We've already hired her again for our next trip and will continue to use her services for all of our needs in the future.

About: I have had dogs and cats of my own for my whole life as well as cared for rescue animals in volunteer roles for over 5 years now. After helping a few local friends' with pet care, I'm ready to do the same for you! I’m comfortable with caring for and walking dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes. Walks/drop in visits are currently available weekdays, weekends and holidays. I also do occasionally provide house sitting/pet sitting which can include bringing in mail, watering house plants, taking out trash, etc. Ask me about in home doggie day care! *Sorry, I do not board in my home at this time* I absolutely love both dogs and cats. I recognize they thrive on much more than potty breaks, so I make sure they get the kind of attention and activity that they individually need to be happy and healthy.

Alexis was great with my dog Chewy while my family went on vacation! She sent many pictures and followed all instructions provided! I highly recommend booking with her! She's very intentional in trying to understand your pets needs and personality. She brought puzzles and toys for chewy and she was great about sending pictures and communicating. Could not recommend her more for pets with special needs. She's very caring and attentive.

About: I have been an avid animal lover since I received my first puppy as a child. I taught my beloved spaniel how to sit and lay down, and he taught me patience and responsibility. I cared for him until he sadly left us at 17 years old. My experience taught me that our fur babies are here for such a short time, and they deserve the absolute best we can give them. I have extended this mindset into my care of several other pets throughout my life including my four cats and bonus fur babies that I pet sit. My current clients range from small to large breed dogs. I have gained extensive experience with senior pets and the special needs that come with them as well as pets with medical needs. As a college student working part time, I hope to expand my business and do what I love full time. I currently work 9-5 part-time, leaving me with plenty of free time including weekends. I am flexible in my schedule and availability, and always strive to provide pets in my care with as much attention and care as they would receive in their homes. I have a fenced in yard and plenty of indoor space. I have four friendly cats of my own but available space to keep pets in my care separate in the case that they are less then enthusiastic about cats. I offer in house pet sitting as well to those who prefer their fur babies to remain in their own environment. I have a valid NJ Driver's license and a reliable vehicle large enough to transport big breeds. Additionally I have plenty of experience administering medications and treatments safely.

Julie was so great! She was really responsive through text, and was available on short notice when we suddenly needed to find someone to let our pup Lola out while we were out for the night. I received pictures of all three of our animals and had no issues. It was only one visit so not much to report, but would definitely book with her again. Thank you so much Julie!

Zharah is a wonderful person to have to take care of your dogs, I myself have a husky and whenever she comes over my dogs jumps to get her attention and she’s always so nice and sweet. She has dogs as well and i've seen her take her of them and she does nothing but the best for them and it would be an honor for anyone to have her as a sitter.

About: My extensive experience in pet care sets me apart from others in several ways: 1. Knowledge and Skills: I have a deep understanding of animal behavior, health, and nutrition, along with practical skills in handling different types of animals and administering medication 2. Empathy and Understanding: I've developed a strong empathy for animals, allowing me to understand their needs and emotions more effectively, leading to better care and more positive interactions. 3. Problem-Solving Abilities: My experience has honed my problem-solving skills, enabling me to find solutions to challenges such as behavioral issues, health problems, or environmental changes. 4. Attention to Detail: I'm highly detail-oriented, noticing subtle changes in behavior or health that may indicate an issue, which allows for early detection of problems and prompt intervention. 5. Patience and Commitment, Caring for pets requires patience, consistency, and dedication, qualities I've honed over time to provide reliable and compassionate care to animals. I’m a full time night student so during the day I have plenty of time to care for your furry friend during the weekdays and more time on the weekends. When caring for my clients' pets in their home, I prioritize following their instructions meticulously, providing companionship, maintaining routines, monitoring health and behavior, ensuring home security, and communicating regularly. I leave the home clean and tidy, respect their privacy, and do a final check before leaving. This ensures professional and reliable pet care services while respecting the comfort and security of both the pets and the clients.
