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.

We're over the moon with Tarah's stellar care for our two bulldogs while we were away. She handled everything like a pro, from giving them their daily Benadryl to dealing with their sassy attitudes with patience and grace. Coming back to a house that was better than we left it and two happy pups was the best feeling ever. Tarah's genuine love for animals shines through in everything she does, making her our top choice for pet sitting. If you're looking for someone reliable and caring, Tarah's your person. Huge thanks to Tarah for making our time away stress-free and our dogs' tails wag like crazy!

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.

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!

Jenna is a genuine joy. Her immensely warm demeanor and professional presence made us feel incredibly comfortable leaving our crew of silly misfits in her care during our first partnership with Rover. Responsible, respectful and a real pleasure to work only begins to describe her and her gift of service. We are truly blessed to consider her to be a member of our pack. Thank you for you, Jenna! 💜

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

Alexis gave consistent updates for how Pinot was doing, and was always quick to respond. When we returned, Pinot was happy and healthy, and the house was just as we left it. We'd definitely use Alexis again and would recommend her services to other interested parties!

So happy I found Jess to watch my sweet Rosie girl while I was gone overnight! I will definitely be hiring her again. She was great to communicate with from setting up a meet and greet to giving me multiple updates while I was gone. In every picture update she sent, my dog looked happy and relaxed and that's all I can ask for. I highly recommend Jess to take care of your dog!

Amethyst house sat for our two, including our livestock guardian breed dog, who is very slow to trust people. By the end of the week he was leaning up against her and asking to be pet. She sent lots of photos and kept us informed of her comings and goings. I would gladly recommend her, particularly to those with dogs who aren't friendly to strangers. Our Kuvasz, (like a Great Pyrenees), did great with her as she patiently met with him before our trip and managed him while we were gone.
