Dog Lover on 22 Acres-Okelly ChapelCary/Durham, NC

If you are a regular and can't get booked on the website, call me and hopefully we can squeeze you in. ...You pay us to love your dog(s), and that is what we do. Growing up, my family raised German Sheppards, along with the horses, cows, cats, chickens, geese and a myriad of other animals. I'm located on the same 22 acres, conveniently located off O'Kelly Chapel Road in extreme north-east Chatham County/north-west Cary. If the three acre Frisbee field isn't enough space, or the 20 acres of woods is too confining, we can head over to the American Tobacco Trail that borders our property.

After 33 years of an adult life in Atlanta, I moved back home to care for my aging parents. Since I work from home, I am here at the house most of the time. Your dog also gets loved by mom, along with my daily helpers. There is ALWAYS someone here to administer affection.

Professional Dog Sitter in Cary, NCCary Park, Cary, NC

** UPDATE: I specialize in long term boarding, many of my clients have been booking my month or more program, for more information please message me for rates and availability.

* 5 star top ranking in Cary and top 10% in North Carolina for Rover

* I provide geriatric care for elder dogs and have a ground floor area with no stairs.

** Ask me about my referral program

I have always been around dogs! Growing up I had 2 Newfoundlands, Beagles, hound mixes, Labradors, Yorkies, and Australian shepherds. So I am very comfortable with all dog breeds. I currently have a beagle and a pyrenees/lab mix, that are both rescues. I strongly believe in rescuing dogs from shelters first, if possible. I love all animals and could not imagine my life or world without them in it. I have never not had a dog since I was a child, and I think they are fundamental for companionship and having a great, well balanced life. I am not a part time sitter, I am looking to be available to my clients any and all times possible. My husband and I both work from home, so there would never be a long gap of time that your pup would be alone. If you have to leave town for an emergency, just send me a message and drop your pup off on the way. I will walk your dog around a subdivision with miles of sidewalks, on the trails of the private green way and around the lake in my neighborhood, far away from any cars. We will play fetch up at the fenced in park or on my 30 foot extending leash. They can be social with other dogs if you would like or kept apart. They will be fed only the food you provide for their specific diet and according to your schedule at home. They will be let out often. They can roam freely around the home in a dog safe environment. They will be brushed and bathed if needed and cared for as if they were my own. My dogs are family, not just pets, just like yours will be!

Your dog's home in west Carycary, NC

Hi, this is Janice Huei-Ju Hsu, a mom of 6 ( 3 kids, 2 cat and 1 dog). We live in a medium size single-family house, with a big fully fenced yard surrounded by trees and birds.

When we play in the yard, your dog will be exploring in this semi-natural environment. He will have friends to play with, human to cuddle with and of course, sunshine and grass to enjoy~

***I know every dog has his own personality, but with young kids at home, I can only take well-trained and well-behaved dogs. Which means if your dog has a tendency to mark in the house, like to dig the yard, chew the mulch, not able to tolerate young children's touch and noise, like to jump on people...sorry this is not a place for him/her. ***

***Every dog is important and needs protection so please have up-to-date vaccination record and use flea/tick/heartworm preventatives in time before coming.***

About young puppies:

We love puppies! My home is a very good environment for your young puppy to get socialized, kids of different age (4-10), dogs of different sizes and all kinds of noise and fun. However, puppies are more likely to pick up germs and virus (just like kids going to daycare). I clean my floor every other day and pickup any possible harm in the yard, but still, I can't guarantee they won't get anything from other dogs. Please understand.

About cats:

I live with cats from the year of 2000, so I know well how to take care of them. Cats love people, just don't show as dogs do. I am willing to travel within 5 miles to take care of your cats when you are not around, and make sure they have everything they need.

My husband and I love dogs, we have two of our own (Blue Heeler and American Bully) as well as our volunteer efforts through Pit Bull rescue programs!

Our kennel is situated on the farm that my husband and I live on, giving the dogs a great amount of space to run, play and just be a dog! (We even bring out the wading pools on HOT days!) Alongside the kennel house we offer multiple play areas. This allows dogs to socialize and play with each other, as well as providing private pens for older dogs or those dogs who need individual space. We enjoy being with the dogs playing fetch, tug a war and Frisbee! At night, all dogs are tucked in and kenneled in our temperature controlled kennel house.

We have specialized training in working with difficult dogs, as well as working with dogs who may need to brush up on their listening skills. We set up a meet & greet to get to know you and your dog prior to boarding with us. This allows you to see the facility and for us to become familiar with your dog and any needs that he/she may have. I only work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Publix, on those days will vary the drop of and pick up time, all other days I am very flexible. We offer Military/Veteran, all Public safety employees and teacher discount. We are looking forward to meeting you and booking your dog’s stay!

30yr prof-exp, 3ac fence, full timeApex, NC

***COVID-19 concerns. The CDC says that “there is no evidence of pets contracting the virus & passing it. However it can be carried from a sick person on their coats.” Here at K9 Custom Care LLC Linda is constantly disinfecting floors, crates, bowls, doors, handles, grooming tables & equipment with Clorox. This is also approved by Veterinarians.***

Linda works at home full-time. She has owned dogs all of her 58 years. She’s had 30 years professional dog experience with multiple breed top contenders in AKC & International obedience & confirmation. Her 3200 sf house is surrounded by 3 beautiful wooded & grassy, fenced acres. Depending on the needs of your dog, she has a variety of care options. Her property was set up for personal show dogs, now retired, it is for her private clients. If your aged dog needs a warm dog bed to sleep on, a young puppy/dog that needs positive experiences and socialization, or a dog that needs to run, it’s here. The fence is 5’ so, if your dog climbs or leaps over that, then, another facility may be better for your dog. Linda will never allow any dogs to be together unless all temperaments prove solid. She wants the dogs to be as social but only safely.

Drop off/pick up hours are strictly kept to 8:00AM-6:00PM. If Pick up will be later, one option is that you can add an extra ROVER overnight stay; or you can have friends or family pick your dog by 6:00 for you.

The ROVER boarding fee is PER EACH 24 hours. If your dog is here more than five hours on the pick up day, a daycare fee will be added. The start of last day hours are based on your drop off time from the first day.

Linda will be very happy to answer any questions that you have during the meet n greet. You can also see many of Linda’s ROVER dog photos/videos on Instagram at (Linda.etmoon)

Safe Dog Boarding & Drop-In Visits!Cary, NC

My husband I have lived with and rescued animals for many years including fostering with the ASPCA. Current permanent residents include two adults, two children, two cats, a three legged turtle and a one eyed dog (not our fault). You can be assured that your pet will receive plenty of attention in a stress free environment. I now also do drop in visits for cats and dogs if you prefer that your pets stay in a familiar environment.

Before booking please plan on scheduling a Meet and Greet with our family. We require a prior meeting to your first stay so your pet can meet us and we can do a temperament test to make sure this is the right environment for your pup. We also require all pups to be spayed or neutered to visit with us and to be up to date on all vaccines.

We ask that you provide the following items to make your pups stay as comfortable as possible:

1. Food - instructions on how often ,time frames and amounts ( allergies if any as well)

2. Leash and collar or harness ( we do not use retractable leashes on walks )

3. Comfort items if your pup needs them (Bed, Blanket and toys)

Amenities include a room (w/toys, music and TV), crates, and a huge, private fully fenced backyard (with locks) for potty breaks and play every two hours or as needed. Special requests and needs, within reason, can be accommodated.

*If you book for one night of care, that encompasses a 24 hour sitting period. A daycare rate of $15 will be added on if the booking extends more than two hours beyond the 24 hour period. However, if there is an emergency or other such extenuating circumstances allowances can always be made. Please note: a delayed flight is not an emergency.

**Available for pick up's and drop off''s seven days a week between the hours of 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. When booking please provide a time frame of drop off time and pick up time as we set a 30 min window between drop offs so everyone has a walk by themselves before others join them during their visit this helps with anxiety and gives us a chance to bond with your pet .
