Milli had a great weekend with Erin & Chris! They spoiled her while she was there! She also was very relaxed even after she returned home! I would definitely recommend them and appreciate that they limit the number of dogs at one time! Thanks Erin & Chris!

Duncan had so much fun during his stay at Justin's, judging by the looks of the pictures that were sent and the fact he slept all day after he came home. Communication was great and was very responsive. Will book again!

Casandra is the best with our babies. Always sending photos and videos. Both of our dogs are worn out when they come home from all the playing and excitement. Highly recommend her.

Our pups, Barnaby & Lucy love going to Scott and Jess’ house. They play all day, are well loved and we always get photos with updates. Our dogs go to their house every time we leave town - they are who we trust!

Ashly was amazing!! She took great care of my dog, Franny came home exhausted. She sent me pictures and updates throughout the day, I had never used rover before so I was a bit nervous but she assured me all would be great and it was, I have no doubt that we will absolutely be back! :)

Jasmine was excellent with watching two of my dogs, Toby and Leia! She already had a full house of her own but she made sure my pups were comfortable and happy while my partner and I were away. Highly recommend!

This was a great first experience using Rover. Ben and family provided excellent care of ilse. We received daily updates and photos. Ilse was happy and seemed to be enjoying her stay. We will definitely have Ben care for her again. Thank you Ben for taking such great care of our ilse girl!

Alice was amazing! I was so nervous about leaving my dog with someone I did not know but she put me at ease as soon as we met. It was readily apparent that she has a lot of experience with dogs, and the safety and well-being of those in her care is her primary concern. She sent daily photos, videos and updates while I was gone. And it was obvious that Lucky enjoyed himself while he was there. Alice is a kind-hearted and responsible caregiver. She is at the top of my call list for future needs. Thanks Alice!

They took extra special care of Pause and made sure he felt at home. They even sent him home with an extra doggie bag of treats!! He is tired out from all the fun and will be staying over again in the future!

I have booked with Jessica a few times now and recommend her to anyone looking for top notch care for their pet. This most recent time I did not realize that my pup had a broken nail before dropping her off and Jessica saw it right away, took her to the vet, and went above and beyond to care for her during her week long stay. Also, my flight back to Des Moines was extremely delayed and Jessica was super accommodating and understanding. Jessica is incredibly responsive and I trust her completely with my dog Iommi. Whether you need a daycare stay or extended stay, Jessica is the person to book with. Thank you so much again Jessica!

Couldn't have been better. Evan was super accommodating with our last minute travel plans and answered all questions and texts back very quickly and professionally. He even texted us photos so we could see she was happy and having fun. Will definitely use again.

She was wonderful and I already rebooked with her. I got updates and I know that my dogs were happy. Her kids also helped and loved them. It was like they were just visiting in another family. They weren’t just in crates for days. They were with the family.

Cory did great with our pups! We were gone for 10 days so we were a little worried but the dogs did great with Cory. They got a lot of walks in and when we picked them up they were as happy as can be! Would definitely rebook with Cory.

Maricela was awesome with easing in Sami into her home, giving her space to get used to the new environment. She sent pictures daily and was always incredibly responsive in both the inquiry and once booked. She accommodated our requests and was incredibly friendly. Definitely recommend Maricela if you are looking for someone that will treat your pet as their own!

I cannot say enough good things about Jessica! She has been wonderful to work with. Carl absolutely loves her. He’s always so excited to hang out with Jessica and family. I have to travel a lot for work, and I have never felt uneasy leaving Carl with Jessica. I am forever thankful to have found such an awesome sitter and friend for Carl.
