Robin is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her without any hesitation! She is incredibly responsible, professional, and kind. You can also tell that she loves the animals she takes care of. She’ll send me daily photos and videos of her playing with my cat, and my cat always looks so happy to be around her. I can truly relax while I’m on vacation knowing that my cat is well taken care of. Thanks for all you do, Robin! More...

George is a love bug and he's an absolute joy to look after, especially when he gets chasing that laser beam! Thank you for the lovely review, Shantel.

Robin is SPECTACULAR. Stop your search now.

Seriously.

We moved from SF to LA with 2 Frenchies. It seems silly, but when they're your fur babies, you want to ensure you have the best people taking care of them.

We interviewed a few other places and were greatly disappointed, worried that we'd never find the right person. [One company even just wanted to use our dogs to promote her own brand and get sponsors for her Instagram. (Gross!)]

But the moment we met Robin, we knew we'd found the perfect person.

She was professional and clearly loved our dogs. She let us know when she arrived (with photos) and then again as proof she'd take a photo when she left. She kept a close eye on them and let us know if they had a cough or even if their noses needed some coco butter. :)

We had her walk our pups 5x per week, an hour each time. Her pricing was very fair compared to other places we looked.

We also had her pet sit at our house. (She stays at your apt as to not change up a dog's schedule too much.) It was wonderful and I never worried about our pups.

I think our dogs ended up loving her more than us. And that's not really the worst thing in the world. She took care of our dogs as if they were family . We only stopped working with her because we moved out of LA (due to COVID).

Simply put, she and her company, are one of a kind.

Kristen, I know I thanked you off-line, but I feel remiss not to shower you with many, many heartfelt thanks here. Gosh, I do miss your fur babies, both with distinct personalities. I should have paid you to play with them. Thanks to all my photogenic fur clients, I've also gotten a ton of DMs on Instagram to be a brand sponsor. And they all go in the trash. I know I would be upset if I saw my dog or cat in an instagram feed along with some promoted product. I do, however, promote my Redbubble (OverandOutOXOX.redbubble.com) fur creations on my @overandoutoxo instagram, using my photos, with my pet parent's full consent of course. My buyers are me because I love the stuff I make and I love my fur clients...and some of my clients buy gifts to send to family and friends. It gives me a fun creative outlet. All the best to you and yours, Kristen. Stay happy and healthy in SF! I do still hold out hope you'll return to LA. THANK YOU for the truly wonderful review. <3 Robin

Robin is wonderful! She deeply cared about our two small dogs, she was always punctual and on top of everything. She is reliable and we never had a problem with her. She also took amazing pictures of our dogs and made some amazing merchandise. Super highly recommended!! More...

Robin is everything you could possibly want as a petsitter and more! She's very friendly, knowledgeable, punctual and she would always spend as much time as possible with my cats. Brushing, playing, and taking pics/vids to send to me. She even took care of my nano reef aquarium! She went the extra mile and sent me flowers when my beloved cat passed away. She's extremely trustworthy and I have always been able to count on her at a moments notice More...

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Molly! Chelsea will always be my spirit animal! She was the best part of any day!

Before COVID, I traveled all the time for work, often with very little notice, and had struggled to find a reliable and trustworthy pet-sitter for a long time. Robin changed that: she is truly best in class. She is the only person I feel I can trust with my pet while I'm away.

Why? First off: Robin is *incredibly* thorough, asking things I'd never even thought of before starting her visits and keeping detailed notes on everything imaginable. She is consistent, accountable, responsive and proactive. But most importantly, Robin is a genuine animal lover who truly connects with pets, and they connect with her. My cat is shy (not a surprise; he is a cat), but like most pets, he also tends to be a good judge of human character. He warmed to Robin immediately. It is clear from the photos she takes that he loves having her there when I'm gone, and I feel good knowing he is not just taken care of, but gets to have a friend over while I'm away.

There are a LOT of pet sitters here in LA, but if you're looking for a true professional for the job, it's Robin. So glad to have found her and when I do travel again, she'll be my first call.

I’ve been with Over and Out for 3 years now and can’t imagine going with another pet walker/sitter with our Bichon.
Robin is such a professional. She’s reliable, super trustworthy, honest and a good communicator with her clients.
She was also there for our senior dog who needed a lot of care, patience, and compassion and that Robin gave!
Best of all I know I have peace of mind whenever we leave our little bichon with Robin - whether its for walks or pet sitting.
I would highly recommend Over and Out to anyone.

3 May 2021

When my former dog sitter retired, I was quite lucky to find Robin through enthusiastic online reviews. I was impressed in our first meeting how thorough she was, sensitive to my dog to me and to our home. Robin then got to know my Spaniel Bronwyn over several walks so that by the time I went on a vacation, they knew each other well. Bronwyn can be shy and somewhat anxious but Robin's patience, cheerfulness and warmth created a terrific atmosphere for her here at home to relax and feel safe while I was gone. This past year everyone has been at home, but I am delighted that Over and Out and Robin are getting back out there so that when traveling is resumed, I can go away completely confident that my dog will be in the best hands!

Robin is an all around wonderful person! Our dog Stashi is a stray from Iran so she doesn't do well around most people but with Robin she absolutely adores her. Some people just have that trait that animals adore and Robin has that trait! We work freelance so our schedules are all over the place and Robin goes out of her way to always make sure she has time to come over and pick up our pup and make sure she's has a nice long walk. She sends tons of amazing photos during the walk and our dog is always happy when she gets home. I wouldn't even consider another person for taking care of our dog. Over and out pet sitting is the best in Los Angeles!!! More...

Robin is the bomb.
The kindest, sweetest person.
She has a true soft spot for animals.
If you have to leave your precious family members in someone else's hands, you couldn't do better.
She is trustworthy and loyal; reliable, responsible and diligent as well as caring, playful and nurturing.
It can be scary to open your home up to a stranger, but she won't be a stranger long - she will become a true friend.
I always felt my home, too, was safer with her visiting.
When I lived in LA and traveled all the time, she cat sat for me many times. She thoughtfully sent me great pictures of them - happy - which always eased guilt or concerns.
Fortunately, my cats never had medical issues (that she had to deal with) but I know she is a veteran expert at maintaining medicine schedules, exercise routines and honoring any unique or specific pet owner requests.
Truly: irreplaceable.

Thank you so much, Heather! That's a great review. So great you posted twice! I'm must be really good! LOL. Tsuki was an absolute love! Thankfully, Tsuki didn't need meds, but my clients make it easy for me by creating a chart for me for me to follow. It's the only way to keep all the pills straight and eliminate what could be very bad mistakes. Thank you for the amazing review.

Robin is wonderful with out cats and takes the extra time to make them feel cared for. She is very professional and wants to know every detail so she can provide the best care for them. She gives updates and pictures each time she visits and the cats felt at ease around her. Highly recommend! More...

Robin Grossman, from Over and Out Petsitting, put me at ease that my buddy, Sensei, would be in good hands while I was away. She asked pertinent questions I hadn’t even considered. Robin carefully prepared for anything that might go wrong - the contact information of Sensei’s veterinarian; the nearest animal hospital; the location of Sensei’s carrying case, etc. I realized Sensei was going to be in the hands of a real pro and would get more knowledgable care than I could even provide. I also loved receiving reassuring pictures of Sensei whenever Robin visited. More...

Martin, it was a pleasure to look after Sensei. What a sweetie. And yes, it's always best to keep the litter away from the cats food and water. Sensei is such a handsome boy too! I'm glad you and Sensei are doing well, Martin.

Robin is terrific—very reliable, thorough, and communicative. I have a cat with behavioral issues and have had problems in the past with finding good care, but I Robin was great with her and sent me daily updates. Highly recommend!

Robin is the best! It is so stressful to leave babes behind; knowing that Robin is there just melts that stress away. She understands animals as individuals, and interacts with them as they need, not as she does. She is the model of dedication and reliability. I cannot tell you how much easier it is to leave knowing that our babes have been in Robin’s hands. 100 stars for Over and Out! More...

Q&As

I love when dogs and cats show they're happy. I love when dogs act silly and I love when cats purr. I love being out all day, getting fresh air and sunshine. I have several autoimmune diseases so the work keeps me healthy.

I grew up with dogs and cats. Doggies: there was Heidi, Tebby, and Holly, not all at once. And cats: there was Mimi, Mimila, Mimi again, Maxwell, and Peter, again not all at once. After our black lab, Tebby passed, a stray cat showed up the next day on the front step. I opened the door to get the mail and there he was. He had the exact same markings as Tebby. He meowed once and walked right into the house like he owned the place. He stayed with us until he passed on from diabetes. Dogs and cats were always a joy. I started walking local dogs when I was in high school. I was a dental assistant for a short while and later a web content developer, but then when I from the East Coast to LA-- many years ago--friends asked me to look after their 4 dogs, while they took a six week vacation to New Zealand. Later, I was a post production assistant for a short while, but it was not for me. I was not interested in web content development work, so I turned to dog walking and petsitting.

I believe in the Golden Rule. I treat your home and pets as I would want my pets (I don't have any) and my home treated. I operate by the Boy Scout rule of leave no trace. I clean up after myself and after your pets. If clients need me at 4am, I will make that happen. I take extensive notes, so my client and I are on the same page. My clients love my photos. They text them a photo of their pet when I arrive, send plenty of photos while I'm there, and they know when I leave. I have tons of happy clients on Thumbtack, so I have plenty of referrals. I'm insured and bonded. I have no employees, so there's no real need for me to be bonded, but I get it for my client's sense of security. I know pet first aid and I have plenty of history looking after old, ailing, and medicated pets.

No. Petsitting and dog walking must take place at the client's home. I don't do boarding at my place.

Well, I have multiple autoimmune diseases, so I'm high risk should I get the virus. I've isolated since 3/4/2020 until 4/21/2021. I got my second vaccine on 3/31/2021. I still take loads of precautions by double masking and using a ton of hand sanitizer. My doctors tell me that I should be fine, but I should mask up and my clients must be fully vaccinated.

12 HR OVERNIGHT PETSITTING......$70 (3 dogwalks) Includes 2 evening walks and 1 morning walk.

I sleep over and care for your dog. If your dog is used to sleeping in your bed, I'll be happy to bunk with him. : D This includes 3 walks, which depends on the health and needs of your dog as well as weather conditions.

Overnights include feeding, clean up, play, taking in mail, watering plants, changing lights on/off, taking out garbage, and unlocking/re-locking gate for the gardener. I generally do not do overnights for just cats, but if that's what you need, I'm happy to be of service. I clean up before I leave so I leave no trace.

VACATION OVERNIGHT PETSITTING
Your home becomes my home base. This means I spend more hours looking after your pet than you could afford to pay.

Includes 12 hr Overnight rate (3 walks)....$70! And $25 dollars for the rest of the day because I will have other dog walking clients.

So that’s $95 per 24 hours.
Vacations that are 2 weeks or longer get a 10% discount.

But let's say I'm away for 4 hours dog walking other client's dogs, I'm still petsitting your dogs for 20 hours and that works out to $4.75/hr. That’s a great deal.

Your place is looked after, your pets get the best personal care and playtime, and you get frequent updates of photos, videos of your pet(s). I send a lot of photos. : D

Many clients hire me for vacation petsitting. I sleepover at their house or apartment. I bring my own food and I look after their pets.

The pets get a lot of attention because I sit where they sit and I pet them for hours, while we play or watch TV. I walk them. I brush them. I give them treats. They sleep in the bed with me if they're used to sleeping in the bed with my client. My clients love me because they know that weekly clients and vacationing clients get a favorable discount. We can always work something out to keep everyone happy.

We can do a FREE one hour -- MASK ON -- consultation, so I can get to know you and your pet and your pet can get to know me. With dogs, we will take the dog for a walk, so I can see how they respond to commands and to other triggers that might be in the area (dogs, cats, bikes, skateboards, and the like).

And if you're a client and adopt a new pet, we will do another free one hour consultation so I can get to know your new pet and he/she can get to know me.
