Description:

We have two smaller dogs in our home now. They are very friendly. We also have two children (13) who love to interact with dogs and take them for walks.
Your dog will have plenty of love and attention while staying at our home.

We live on a large cirlce street that has one way in and out. The only people driving around here live here, so its nice and quiet. There are approximately 55 homes.

This also makes it nice when we go on walks, we just do the circle.

About Deanna S.:

We are a very active and loving family and treat your pet the same way we treat our pets. Your furry baby can hang out on our furniture and sleep in our beds, if that is what you allow at your home. We don't want to start any bad habits, so if you will be clear on the rules at your home, we will make sure they are followed in our home. Our goal is to make your trip less stressful by giving your furry baby a safe and comfortable place to stay on their "stay-cation".

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

Everyone in my family has been dog lovers their whole lives. We have always had dogs. We prefer to have more than one dog at a time, so they keep each other company. I have owned a variety of sizes and temperments over the years, so I am no stranger to the shy one, or the one that can have a bad moment. We all have those days.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

I would like to know if your pet has aggression issues. Since I also have pets in this home, we need to make sure my dogs are safe. We would also like to know if your pet is fully housetrained. We are not one to panic if there is an accident on the carpet, but we want to know how much we need to keep your pet in our sights, versus letting them be more independent and explore.

We would also like to know if your pet has a chewing issue. This is not a dealbreaker, we just want to know so we can give them more attention and distractions to protect our furniture.

We have no breed preferences. We love them all.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes, we have several cars and wonderful vet care nearby, if needed.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, we can administer any type of meds necessary. I have also had to give shots to my dogs before, so when I say this is not an issue, I truly mean it.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I mostly work from home, so I allow all dogs to have free access to the home when I'm here. There are times when I need to make sales calls, but on those days, its generally only for a few hours.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

We have a large backyard, full of grass, but it is not fenced. This is why we leash walk all dogs who stay here, even our own. With your permission and your pets good behaviour, we will allow them off the leash to play at their leisure.

Where will my dog sleep?

This depends on where your dog is used to sleeping. Our dogs sleep with my children in their rooms, sometimes on the bed, sometimes in the chair. Your dog is free to sleep where they are comfortable sleeping. I find when we watch dogs, the dog usually dictates where they want to sleep, and we allow that. If you have a preference, please let me know so we don't instill any bad habits while you are away.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

We will walk your dog in our yard, front and back. We also like to walk them around the circle of our street. There is a sidewalk all the way around. There are also other dogs walking around, so there is lots of opportunity for interaction with other dogs and little time for boredom.

Deanna and her family did a great job watching our dog, Bo. I couldn't have asked for better! We went out of town for a week, and she sent several photos of Bo, showing that he was doing well. The home is very dog friendly, and she let Bo sleep anywhere he wanted (just like he does at home). She even volunteered to drop Bo off at my house since my husband wasn't able to get him until later that night. I can't say enough good things about my experience. It was my first time using Rover.com, and I was very pleased. (Collapse)

My dog, Rascal, stayed with Deanna for 13 days. All appeared to go well. I was texted pictures almost every day which I appreciated very much since this was the first time Rascal has stayed there. My only concern is that I was told Rascal had gone to the bathroom in the house twice which he hasn't done in years. Deanna said that it was their fault because they didn't let him out often enough (he was going more often than usual because of meds he's on). He holds it over 12 hours for me sometimes so I'm concerned about how often he was taken out and also that he may continue this behavior at home. Other than that it looks like he had a good time.

Max stayed with Deanna. See testimonial.

The entire family took excellent care of my dog, to the point that she didn't want to come home. Once I took her home she slept for 2 days after all the playing she did.

I felt very comfortable with Deanna. She sent pics and updates and even gave Rosie a bath.

We have tried the kennel and another dog sitter in the past. We were not happy with the services provided. We are so happy we found Rover.com and Deanna S. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed his visit - we know because Deanna texted us pictures of him as well as updates about how he was doing on his stay at her home. We will definitely use her again. She is friendly and easy to work with. We also like that she has other dogs our dog could pal around with and that she works from home. We don't have to look any further for sitters in the future - we will definitely use Deanna! (Collapse)

I booked a stay with Deanna and was very pleased with the communication she provided. Deanna allowed me to visit her home prior to leaving my puppy Max. I will be the firt to admit that I'm a bit over protective, so I really appreciated the communication Deanna provided. I was able to text with Deanna, so it made arrangements for dropping off and picking up very easy. Deanna sent pics and updates to me so make sure everything was ok. Also, Max needed a med and she was very willing to help with that. Deanna was very laid back, easy to work with, and I would definately leave Max there again. Thanks to Deanna and the entire family.
