What Can Rover.com do for you?
When I adopted a new poodle, within the first week I realized he could not be left alone. Whatever his trauma had been prior to adoption, it was so severe, that he could not go even one or two minutes without having a panic attack. Well, at some point, we all have to go to work, go to the grocery, and leave our house for any variety of reasons. I couldn’t get my schedule to fit into a standard Doggie Day Care setting with strict pickup and drop off hours. That’s when it was Rover.com to the rescue.
Rover.com makes it easy to find Dog Boarding (overnight), Doggie Day Care, Dog Walking, and even Drop in Visits at your own home. After you sign up and create a profile for you and your furry friend, you can search for any of the items above by your zip code or even the zip code of where you may be at the time you need service.
One of the great things about Rover.com is that when you search, you see not just the photos of dog sitters, but the attached map shows you where each sitter is located and gives you a snapshot with all their information. You see their rates, their reviews, and credentials as defined by Rover.com. Here are a few of the credentials you may see:
Verified Background Check: This sitter has successfully passed a basic background check by a third party provider.
Rover Protection Package: This sitter demonstrates their commitment to pet safety by subscribing to Rover’s Protection Package. This sitter has 24/7 access to our Ask a Vet services.
Home Inspection and Phone Screening: This sitter has completed an in-person home visit and screening.
Once you pick your sitter or other services, you’ll contact them through Rover.com and you can set up a meet and greet to make sure you are a perfect match. That will let you see where your pet will be staying and who will care for them while you are away. After the meet and greet, the last thing to do is book your appointment. Rover.com’s premium insurance is your piece of mind that your four legged friend will be cared for well.
Be sure to have your sitter send you texts during your pet’s stay so you can see what your friend is up to!
I’ve had dogs all my life (and poodles most of my adult life), and when I adopted my best buddy, I had no idea that separation anxiety could bring your entire life to a halt. Rover.com saved me. I was able to interview potential sitters, talk about my unique scheduling challenges, get to know the other dogs he’d be playing with, and make an informed decision about the care of my dog. I’ve never worried for one minute while I am away.
At Camden, we love pets, and Rover.com is a perfect way to connect you to local pet sitters, with flexible hours, individual attention and loving homes.
