    "DogVacay is a novel idea. It offers plenty of options for dog care depending on the type and amount of care required. When I had to leave town for a few days I was able to look through different prospective sitters and find one that seemed to be the best fit for both myself and my dog. I know one of the options was for a dog sitter to stay in my house, and I certainly did not want that. Instead I met with a nice young guy who seemed willing to sit for my dog at his own house in town. This put me at ease since the dog would be able to keep some sense of his usual surroundings while I was away. The app claims that updated videos and pictures will be sent every day, and the sitter was more than willing to follow through with this, but I felt that was a bit excessive. Overall, the app is nice, but I can't see it being useful multiple times. If you find a good sitter you'll probably just use them again."

    "Rover has not been as useful to me as I had hoped. I live in a smaller town and cannot find anyone on there. This app is geared toward major metropolitan areas and could certainly be seen a great idea there. I love the task-rabbit nature of it. I can see it being a great product for those who can use it."

    "For dog owners with a busy life, it is sometimes needed to find a sitter for their beloved pets so they can be away for awhile but have someone actively keeping watch over their pets. There are various ways to find a sitter, but having an app like that from Care.com just makes it all so easy. It puts you into direct contact with sitters in your local area that can be hired for the job you need. If you may need other 'sitter' type jobs - like babysitting, for example, the Care.com app has that covered as well. It's just not for pets but covers a multitude of options. Highly recommended if you are ever in need of such services."

    "People always say that dogs are mans best friends and in my case, that's absolutely true. I'm a proud owner of a full breed, purple tongued Chow Chow and he's my best friend but sometimes it's hard to find other like-minded people who feel just as passionate about their four-legged friends. I eventually came across this app called "Dog Breeds" by Petsie Social, it's like Facebook but for animals lovers. "Dog Breeds" is a place where people can come together with all kinds of breeds, post pictures, like, comment and share their love of the beloved furry friends. "

    "This is the perfect app to find a dog sitter. I like that each sitter has ratings which helps a lot when it comes to leaving someone you dont know with your pet."
