Lori was absolutely wonderful with my 2 difficult 4 legged babies. She played with them, cuddled them. We have used her in the past and will continue as she is great.

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.

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!

Our dog is a little nervous and he seemed to do great with Molly staying with him for the weekend! We got periodic photo updates so we could see how he was doing. We’d definitely have Molly stay with him again!

Selena was great to work with. She took the dogs out to play in the yard with her even during a snow storm. We got pictures and videos at least once a day. We will definitely have her back for our next vacation.

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! 💜

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.

I cannot say enough good things about Sarah! She did wonderful with my boy while I was away for 5 nights! This was his first experience ever having someone stay at home with him. He tends to be a nervous little guy whenever we're apart, and boarding him at a facility in the past really stressed him out. He tends to cry when someone (besides me) leaves him alone in a kennel - especially overnight. Sarah was the perfect "emotional support human" in my absence and was able to work her regular day job from my apartment so she could be with Zephyr nearly 24/7! During that time, she sent me multiple photos and updates each day, and she was respectful of his routine and our home in general. She even took Zephyr out for a puppuccino at Starbucks - which is one of his all-time favorite things! ? I would highly recommend Sarah's services to anyone looking for an in-home sitter! Especially if their pet has some mild separation anxiety like my boy does! ❤️

We hired Jessica for the first time to pet/house sit our 11 year old golden retriever. She was excellent! She came over prior to meet us and our dog. She communicates well, giving us updates 2-3 times/day; she sent lots of adorable pictures as well! She washed her sheets/towels (without being instructed to) and left the house neat and tidy. Our dog seemed happy when we returned. We would definitely recommend her and will hire her in the future.
