Mary B did an amazing job with my lab. Olive had such a great time there and some amazing walks along the way. I would highly recommend Mary with your pets! She sends lots of pics throughout the day too!

Rover.com Pet Sitting review
We used Rover to hire someone in Pinellas County, Florida, last year and we have also interviewed nice people in our area of Hernando County, Florida. Have found many suitable sitters. The main thing is don't hire the teenagers or the ones who do it for the money. We like the retirees, the veterinary assistants, and the work-from-home ladies who geniunely love animals. Pros: - you can see the qualifications of each person before clicking on them and messaging or calling them - Not too expensive - sort by features, qualifications, price range - no tricks and hidden fees to it like care or sittercity. - specializes in just pets, instead of other categories of care like the other competitor sites Cons: - almost anyone can join if they are not a verified pet hoarder or felon. I'd like a better vetting system. Some areas don't have many sitters; some have too many.

Rover.com Pet Sitting review
Rover is a great company! I found a great dog sitter (at sitters house) on my first try and couldn't be more pleased with her and Rover. In the past I've spent my vacations/trips hoping my dog wasn't miserable at the kennel, and now it feels like I can finally relax knowing that my dog is probably having as much, if not more, fun than I'm having with a family who cares!
