“This was my first time using Rover, and Blythe exceeded all expectations! I was already out of town when my friend got sick and couldn't drop-in on Lizard, so I was scrambling to find someone to come by twice a day for 3 days in a row. Blythe responded to the request quickly, took excellent care of Lizard, and sent photos from every visit. I will definitely be using Blythe again anytime I need someone to drop-in when I'm out of town!”
“Kevasia has been a responsible, loving, fun, and very reliable pet caregiver. I’ve always felt comfortable leaving dogs around her, she makes sure they are happy, fed, played with, clean, and cared for fully.”
“Dawn was kind and caring with my two dogs. She followed all my instructions. And she left homemade treats upon her departure which the dogs enjoyed when I got home! Highly recommend!”
“Kelly is absolutely amazing!! Stop scrolling and book her now. Her updates were extremely thorough, above and beyond expectations, and I received incredible photos of my kitten every single visit. I was SO grateful to know my fur baby was in such great hands while I was away, and will be booking Kelly every single time I travel whenever possible. Can’t say thank you enough!!! It made a huge difference to my peace of mind.”
“Emmalee did a great job! This was my first time using rover and her friendly attitude really put me at ease. She was super communicative and let me know how my cat was doing. When he seemed to be eating less we talked about it and tried a new approach. Thanks for taking care of him and putting me at ease during this separation!”
“I have known Zeya Dovis for many years. She has always been a dog lover, and is an excellent dog groomer working with dogs of all sizes and breeds. Zeya is a reliable and caring person, and would be an excellent pet caregiver. You could rest easy, knowing that she is providing loving care for your pet. Gail G.”
“Julia did a wonderful job taking care of Rummo while we were out of town for a few nights. She took the time to come meet him prior to our trip and had no trouble following our care instructions. She sent plenty of pictures while we were away and even spent extra time with him after their walks. I highly recommend Julia if you are in need of a reliable individual to take care of your pets. Thank you Julia!”
“Sydney stepped in when a previous rover cancelled last minute. Sydney is dependable and extremely communicative, and I would highly recommend!”
“I have known Ehrick his entire life as well as his family. He is very responsible and trustworthy. He stayed at our house with Oliver, our beagle and also walked him for us on other occasions. Many times when he came home to visit his family he stopped by to see Oliver which Oliver loved! He truly cares about the pets. Ehrick also has years of experience with cats having grown up with two of them. I would highly recommend Ehrick!”
“Rhys is an exceptional pet caregiver. He has been raised in a house of animal lovers so he knows the values of beloved family pets. Rhys understands keeping them well fed, exercised and loved is most important. He has experience in dogs, cats, birds (parakeets), aquarium and pond fish, lizards and chickens. You would not be disappointed in his level of care!”
“Hilary took such great care of our dog, Archie, during our one week vacation. We loved all the pictures of Archie and could tell he was comfortable and happy. Hilary also was so flexible when our flights were changed and had us landing at inconvenient times. We will certainly book with her again and we highly recommend Hilary (and her family)!”
“Our cats Gus and Charlie were so happy to see Darnell again, and after a weekend away, we came home to relaxed and well-cared-for kitties. Darnell was an excellent communicator and a delight to work with. I look forward to hiring him to catsit again!”
“Shelby always provides excellent care to pets! She helped me settle in with my dog when I was a first-time dog owner. She is confident and kind with every dog I've seen her interact with. You can rest assured that your pet will receive the best possible care (and plenty of snuggles) with Shelby.”
About: I've been a cat owner for 14 years! I have experience managing animal conflicts, playing/engaging with pets while being respectful of their space and attentive towards their current wants/needs. I have 2.5 years experience working in a doggy-daycare and currently live with a dog (roommates) and cat (mine). That being said, I have had the pleasure of also cleaning up every pet-caused mess under the sun. I love all animals and enjoy caring for them ((: whether it's a walk/jog, playing fetch/with toys, picking up after them, or just sitting with them on the floor. I am off work Thurs-Sat, so I am super flexible on those days only! Happy to work mornings, afternoons, or evenings with any amount of cats and/or dogs. I dont push the pet to do anything they dont want to and make an effort to move at their pace, with gentle encouragment if needed! When caring for pets, I think it's important to be respectful and engaging while also supervising to make sure they are safe.
About: I've grown up with dogs from Toy Poodles, to Beagles, to Dalmatians. I walk my Dalmatian, Hope, between 3 and 5 miles per day and would love to find some walking buddies for her! I can handle any sized breed as I am a large man myself (6'3 240 lbs). I can handle mild to wild personalities and friendly or unfriendly dogs, whether it be with kids or other animals (as long as they are friendly towards me). Let me know how I can be of service to your furry friend! I am a real estate appraiser who works from home so I have plenty of flexibility with my schedule as I set it myself. I already walk my current dog, Hope, 3-5 miles per day and frequently hit up Forest Hill Park or the James River Park System. I will treat your pet or home with the same respect as I would my dog and home. I can either walk your pooch with my girl, or if the pet isn't good with other animals, I can also do separate walks for them!
About: I have many years of experience taking care of not just dogs and cats but exotic animals as well such as fish, birds, and reptiles! I also have extensive experience in administering medications to animals. I work full time as an animal keeper from 9-5 Friday-Tuesday. I am available all day Wednesday and Thursday and I am also available to do drop in visits before and after I go to work. I understand that different pets have different needs. And I follow instructions explicitly. I also know how much pet owners miss their fur babies when away so I make a point to send picture and updates.
“Torreka will provide safe, loving care,and great customer service to your pets! I'm a Retired Yorkie Breeder. She assisted me daily with every litter in every capacity for years. She's an awesome human being because she's patient, funny,caring,observant,organized,trustworthy, and loving!”
“Super reliable and professional. Don’t have to think twice about how my dog is when Jeannette is watching her. Both bookings have gone perfectly!”
About: I’ve grown up with two large dogs my whole life and later on introduced 3 cats into the family. I have experience dog/house sitting for friends while they were out of town. I also use to work at a local pet salon and bathed various types of dog breeds. I lived with one of my dogs in the city for many years, and understand the importance of outdoor activity depending on the breed. I also have experience with senior dog care with my own pets, and am diligent with the specific needs they may have. I also take fun pictures of pets, so I can keep you up to date if you would like. Getting to know your pet is how I can do my job best to keep them feeling happy and safe. I have a very flexible schedule during the week, as I am a part-time student in school in the afternoons and only commute to classes. Friday - Sunday I am completely available for all day care. I am very detailed with how you want your pet cared for. Feeding times, walking times, play time, etc. Keeping your pets schedule as close to normal as possible is my goal.
