Lori took very good care of our 2 very different dogs. One has anxiety issues and one is so little and hates being alone. We had to be away for 8 days, and since this was our 1st time using this service we were a bit nervous...but it all turned out fantastic and I feel so much better about leaving my girls. I will be using Lori again and highly recommend her to care for your 4 legged fur babies.

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!

Sidney helped us out super last minute. I had a different sitter bail on me two days before a wedding, and Sidney jumped in to take the whole day dog sitting. Seriously wish I could give her a 10/5 stars, she communicated well and was so sweet. Thanks so so much Sidney we appreciate you!!

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!

Jeremy is the ideal pet sitter. He arrived several minutes before the desired time so he could touch up on all of my house rules and the desired schedule. He took my dog on 2 long walks and documented their bathroom habits. I was pleased with his diligence and would recommend him to anyone.

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.

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!

Calle stayed with our pups while we were gone on an overnight trip. I appreciated that our pups could maintain their regular routines and schedules in the comfort of our home while we were away. Calle was sweet, easy to work with and the pups enjoyed her company :)
