Doggy Day Care in Bal Harbour, Fort Lauderdale
Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
About: I am an insured and licensed pet sitter. I have a large fenced home where furry friends are allowed on the furniture and never kenneled. In my current home, I have 3 pups that I’ve raised and trained with professionals at our last base. My sweet girls have been raised around the most delicate critters like our late bunny and our kitties. I’ve cared for a variety of breeds; dogs, kitties, reptiles, amphibians, and small critters of all ages and sizes. high energy or low maintenance. Advanced/ Intermediate care or beginner. I have cared for many breeds and sizes of dogs for about 15 years. I do have 3 large spayed girl dogs who have been professionally trained since they were 8 weeks old. They have been well socialized, are even tempered, and well mannered. They are very patient and don’t have a mean bone in their bodies. We’ve been boarding for about 3 yrs now and they haven’t met a friend they don’t like. We have experience with small critters, kitties, puppies, low/high energy pups, senior pets, disabled pets, and pets on medication. I think it is important for pets to follow a routine. Currently, my boarding routine is: - Wake up between 6AM/7AM for potty & play time - Breakfast fed in kennel to prevent food aggression between 7AM/8AM - Lunch fed in kennel to prevent food aggression between 12PM/1PM - Dinner fed in kennel to prevent food aggression between 6PM/7PM We do have (3) 1 hr long scheduled naps in kennels: Right after breakfast to prevent bloat Right after lunch to prevent bloat Right after dinner to prevent bloat When we are ready to play, we have free roam of the downstairs areas to include furniture and are supervised to make sure we’re keeping an eye on body language and cues. I do go outside with the dogs every hour for potty or play time and stay with them until we’re ready to go inside. I do have recording cameras throughout my home to monitor. Pups will be kenneled whenever they can’t be supervised for no than 2 hours at a time. My home, potty area, bowls, toys, and furniture are cleaned and sanitized once everyone is safely secured for bed time. I am retired from the military and am a full time pet sitter. I do have a license to pet sit and am insured to pet sit to cover any expenses should your pet need medical attention. I am the kind of person that will follow instructions to a “T” to ensure as minimal distress or anxiety as possible when leaving your pet with a new person. It’s just me in my home with my kitty and 3 girl dogs. We have a large home with a private 10ft tall wooden fence surrounding my home. ⚠️ No dogs known to be humpers. My dogs do not tolerate this behavior and will isolate a humping dog. (Will find a safe space and growl if they are approached by dog) 🐾 I would prefer to have a meet & greet before booking if time allows for it! 🐾 Your dog MUST get along with other dogs and MUST be updated on their shots and flea prevention. All the pets in my home are up to date on vaccinations, on monthly flea/ tick prevention, and monthly heart worm/ parasite prevention. 🐾 What should your pack for your pups stay? Leash & Collar, Dog food, and any medications they may be on as well as care instructions. Feel free to bring any extras like treats, toys, bed, and blankets.
“Kayla was great! She was very accommodating for a last minute booking. Winston liked her from the moment he met her. It was like he'd known her his whole life lol. I will definitely book Kayla again.”
“Mark was great! We had a meet and greet the night before so we could discuss all details about caring for Buddy and have Buddy meet his dog Coal. Coal is a very laid back guy and they got along great! A plus for us is Mark works from home so he could be with Buddy all day. Mark is a super nice guy and very professional. We highly recommend Mark and hope to use him again during our stay at Pompano Beach!”
“Emilie is the best, my pup loves spending time with her! She’s flexible, accommodating and it’s clear that she genuinely loves animals. She is and will remain my go-to!”
“It’s always hard to leave Nuggs, specially with someone I don’t know, but somehow with Amelia he was incredibly fine and on the second time we took him he didn’t even look back just walked right in, and that tells me that he had a great time and was well taken care of, and that makes me happy! Amelia is professional and pleasant do deal with. Totally recommend Amelia!”
“My dog comes home happy every day. She’s very flexible with drop off and pick up. I work long hours and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg for 8+ hours of daycare. I have peace of mind knowing that my dog is in good hands. Definitely recommend Brigitta to anyone who needs to find a reliable sitter for their dog!”
“Michelle has been a Godsend! There is no one else I would trust more with my Jasmine Sphynx. Not only is Michelle reliable and trustworthy, she immediately formed a beautiful connection with Jasmine like I have never seen before. Jasmine preens and purrs the moment Michelle arrives. Typically, Jasmine can be a bit inconsolable when I am not around, but with Michelle, she is completely at ease. I have peace of mind knowing my lil girl is in the best hands! 😻”
“When my dog first met Aminah, he was hesitant to go on a walk with her since he had never been on a walk with anyone other than his two dads. We all walked together that day and Aminah returned for a second walk with a plan. She used techniques to get him to trust her, including positive reinforcement, ball play and the click technique along with treats. It worked, and they left together on a walk that day. Aminah won my dog's trust and now he looks foward to her arrival and enjoys his walks with her. Aminah is very loving toward my dog and clearly understands dogs and their behavior. I am very impressed with her abilities. Also, I always get a short video and photos of my dog from Aminah while on the walk and it's reassuring to see him happy and comfortable.”
“I dropped my dog off for daycare with Roxanne and she was great! She sent me multiple pictures throughout the day as well as updates on how she was doing. This was my first experience with Rover and it couldn’t have gone better! So happy to know that I now have a go-to sitter whenever I need one! Highly recommend!!”
“Diana was amazing and took such good care of my dog. She also sent me frequent pics and updates which was very sweet and eased my mind significantly. It was extremely last minute and I'm very grateful that I found such a great option for future doggy daycare needs. I would highly recommend Diana, and will absolutely use her services again.”
“I found Jaroslava on very short notice when I needed doggie day care and she was so loving and attentive towards my 6 year old blue heeler! She sent me several photo updates and my dog was eager to see her again on the 2nd day I needed a sitter. I would definitely book her again!”
“Monique did such a wonderful job caring for my dog Taba. It was really a VIP treatment. Her pet room and playground is super cool, her home is perfectly made for small and medium dogs. I love the extra little fun activities she does with pets, the pet puzzle toys and short meditation sessions. I never seen that with any other pet sitter! She really goes an extra mile to keep your pets entertained. To top it all off, she is such a friendly and kind person! I will definitely leave my dog with her again, she is my go to!”
“Christina was incredibly accommodating and had all of the tools at her disposal to ensure that Benji had a great time. You can tell that she is passionate about dog boarding and making sure that all of her dogs have a great experience. I highly recommend Christina if you are looking for boarding or for daycare.”
“Andrea was great! Everything was perfect from communication and I needed somewhat of a last minute sitter, to pick up and drop off and sending pictures and videos of my dog. I felt very comfortable leaving him with Andrea and will certainly use her for future visits!!!”
“Bruno loves going to stay with Yumara and we feel safe and comfortable leaving him there. She is the sweetest and loves him like her own! We will continue using Yumara again and again, and highly recommend her to anyone needing a safe home for their pup when they’re away!”
“Of course you're always nervous when you leave your babies with a stranger but Angela treated my dogs like they were her own. Very good with pictures and text updates. I just booked the next vacation.”
About: I have taken care of my dog since he was 8 weeks old; and have trained him myself the basic training.

I'm knowledgeable about handling different temperaments and can provide a calm and secure environment.
“Camilla and Maribela were amazing take care of our two dogs for the day! They were very sweet and attentive to the two pups, and sent us the cutest photos of the dogs having a great time. We were running late to pick up the dogs due to traffic, and they were so accomodating and understanding. We will go to them again when we need a dog sitter!”
“Adriana was great with my bull terrier. Great attention to detail and sent me images when requested. She made sure to not leave him with any blankets or fabric toys. Gator loves her and her family!”
“My husband and I are in our 70's and moved to Fort LauderdaIe two years ago. I have been looking for a sitter for my 6 lb, 3 1/2 yr old Maltese since we got here. Teddy is our baby and we usually take him everywhere with us, but sometimes that is not practical or fun for him. I was sure I was not going to find anyone ... until I found Angela! She is absolutely amazing...kind, sweet, compassionate, responsible and she LOVES dogs. She goes way beyond any dog sitter I've ever heard of and will treat your baby like he/she is her own personal pet. Teddy has separation anxiety and when I left him with Angela for the first time he didn't even cry. She is very knowledgeable about dogs, and she had two or her own that she raised from puppies until they passed over the rainbow bridge. The bad part about writing this review is that you are all going to want to swoop her up and I want her for myself lol We will definitely be using Angela whenever we need a sitter! Also I would not hesitate for a minute for her to stay at our house if we needed an overnight.”
