I was in a bind as my dog sitter cancelled last minute and a friend told me about Rover. Not only was I able to sign up quickly, but I was able to find a great dog sitter to help me out before I left for vacation. What a lifesaver this website is. So happy to have found it!

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!
