Lori is great with our two cats and two dogs, and they all love her. We’ve had her over for check-ins, and she recently stayed with the pets at our house for a week - we came home to four happy pets. Having someone like Lori to rely on gives us great peace of mind!

Abby was incredibly wonderful with our high energy, often mischievous Weimaraner! We were able to enjoy a family vacation knowing our pup was loved and cared for by a true pet lover! She sent daily pictures and updates keeping us posted on their activities back home. We can’t wait to have her back! We’re grateful for Abby!

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!

Torina was excellent at caring for my 2 dogs over the weekend. Our dogs have different activity levels and needs, and she was great with both of them. She sent lots of pictures while we were away and left the house clean. I've already booked her again for another stay:)

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! 💜

Jessica is simply amazing. She sent photos and updates and everything! As a Rover sitter myself, I feel I have pretty high standards and Jessica more than met all of them. So incredibly lucky to have found her to watch our pups! Thank you Jessica!!

I am definitely a helicopter parent when it comes to Pickles, but Javon was the best sitter ever. Can’t wait to have them back to hang out with our little cream puff.
