I was nervous about leaving my baby with anyone, but after our meet and greet I was very comfortable leaving Bella with Lori. Bella immediately connected with Lori. I will definitely have her stay with Bella again.

Loved how understanding Abby was while staying with Kitkat..... we had JUST moved into our townhouse a few days before, so it was "less than put together". But Abby was a trooper, all for Kit's benefit. Pictures and updates daily were very helpful in letting me know Kit was doing well. Great job done, and I will definitely book again! Abby, next time the WIFI and cable will be there for you! :)

Highly recommend!! Andrea has stayed are our house two times for long weekends and watched our 14 year old Pitbull who can't go to dog parks or really be around other dogs. She gave him his medication which is about 8 pills and tried different things to get him to eat. She stayed in constant contact with me and left our house spotless. We already scheduled her for another weekend in August.

Lisa did a great job. She looked after my cat and two dogs. She stayed at my home while we were gone. First vacation we have been on in a few years. I don't think my dogs missed us. Trustworthy and did as she promised. Would use her again

Claudia was my first experience with Rover and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction! Very friendly and got along well with my Norwegian Elkhound, Stella. She stayed the night with her while I was out of town, taking her on multiple walks and kept me updated with pictures. Next time I need a Rover, I will be messaging Claudia first!

Tierney was the perfect companion to our anxious couch potato. She even sent updates throughout the night, which was nice as this was our first time leaving our pup for the night.

James is an outstanding pet parent. When I met James, he had a Labrador retriever named Albert. He had adopted Albert as a puppy. Albert was the best cared for pet ever! Albert just passed here recently at the impressive age of 14. He has also pretty pet sat for my Akita, Cash was a puppy mill rescue. I adopted him at about a year old and he was super under socialized and extremely fearful with strangers. James was wonderfully patient with Cash in giving him both the space and the nudges he needed. Rover would be fortunate to get James as part of your team

Jessica is simply amazing. She sent photos and updates and everything! As a Rover sitter myself, I feel I have pretty high standards and Jessica more than met all of them. So incredibly lucky to have found her to watch our pups! Thank you Jessica!!
