My full time job!baton rouge, LA

Why I love dog sitting:

I never remember a time in my life where I wasn't obsessed with animals, dogs in particular. I always knew I wanted to work with animals but I never wanted to deal with the sad part about some of the jobs in the pet industry. Whenever I found out about Rover I isntantly saw a future for me unfold. Now 5 years into it it was the best move of my life!

My partner: Ben is my boyfriend of 6 years. He helps me run things with the pups in the house and does a big majority of the in home visits. He loves animals just as much as I do and has been the biggest support ever for me as I grow my business.

Meet my pets:

Kuma- This dog is my baby! He is a Rottweiler I rescued off of death row at the Baton Rouge animal shelter. He was 1 year old when I first got him. I have had him for 6 years now. We have gone through 2 training classes together. He is very well trained. Kuma is also a certified emotional support dog.

Diva- This is my partners adopted dog. She was a foster fail from denham springs animal shelter. She lives up to her name for sure as she is a complete diva! We believe she is chocolate lab/rott mix. Sweetest dog I've met and very motherly with all our puppies we watch. She lets them crawl all over while she wags her tail! Cats too!

Cats- 3 cats all VERY dog friendly. Your dog MUST get a long with cats. My cats don't comprehend dogs can hurt them.

Mitsu- tripod cat (3 legs) rescue from denham springs animal shelter.

Wisp- princess of the bunch. Extremely spoiled and high maintenance rescued from west Baton Rouge shelter.

Oliver- my indoor outdoor boy. He adopted us. Showed up at my house and never found his owners. So I neutered him and vaccinated him and he never left! Very friendly and loves making buscuits!

About my yard

Large fenced in with lots of running room. Flea treated. Poop scooped daily.

ACCEPTING NEW DAILY WALK CLIENTSBaton Rouge, LA

I have been helping animals since a young age! Mostly cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes! I have been a volunteer with CAAWS, Project Purr and other local organizations for over 7 years. I am an off and on foster mom for the Save An Angel Organization and have worked for the doggy daycare facility, Camp Bow Wow, in the past.

I have been an artist for over 10 years and will complete my BA in Digital Art at LSU soon. I work in several mediums but I spend a lot of time painting in acrylics. Most of my paintings are of pet portraits for clients as well as shelter animals who need homes. Dogs and also cats are held very dear to my heart. If you every find yourself browsing my artwork or see my things at a local event or want a commission pet portrait - all Rover clients get 25% to 50% after one booking with me! Don't hesitate to ask!

I love learning about each animal and their personality! I really do enjoy visits to the dog parks with my dogs and my fosters and I am just excited for each trip as they are! I love quiet time walking in my city and neighborhood with my pups and enjoy play time with any cute critter! I do cats and have done parrots, chinchillas and even chickens.

To follow me on the job on social media my facebook and instagram is :EmilySaysSit and Eskine Art is for my artwork.

————DROP IN VISIT POLICY———--

I will not accept a booking consisting of only one visit per day for dogs if it is for an extended absence (such as a vacation or being out of town for mutliple days). Regardless of a dog having no history of anxiety or destructiveness, I will not conduct a booking where a dog will only have one visit to go out to go to the bathrooms. Dogs need mutliple visits to go to the bathroom along with some stimulation and exercise. Neglecting a dog for long periods of time will cause anxiety and boredom which is how destructive behavior starts.

Only exceptions to this policy is the following:

- dog is outdoors in a secure yard with shelter, food and water

- dog is indoors, has a doggy door and other means of stimulation and play

- first and/or last day of the booking requires only one visit due to owners leaving or arriving home.

Destruction to property and toys along with anxiety can be prevented. I am here to care for your animals and give them the best care. I am not comfortable with giving them anything less than they need or deserve.

————BOARDING POLICY————-

All dogs who are boarded must be up to date on Bordetella, Rabies, Distemper/Parvo Virus and Influenza. It is the owner’s responsibility to de-flea or treat their pets monthly for heart worms , ticks and fleas. If boarder is found with a flea infestation at arrival or during the stay, they will be bathed and you will be charged. For the proper care of my pets and others, dogs should have all shots and be flea free before being dropped off. Fleas do happen regardless but the prevention and care is on the owner.

-------Repeat clients / weekly and monthly-----

Repeat clients for drop-ins or weekly walks may receive weekly and monthly newsletter. I also do drawings for discounted or free services along with gifts or giveaways for the holidays. I treat my clients as part of my family. I love to spoil my clients and my babies. I am about to start a Youtube channel for dog sitters and walkers. If you have an adorable pet that likes attention we for sure need some dog actors for certain videos. We will have giveaways for other sitters and dog owners through the channel.

My boyfriend Jonathan is my second in command and has free availability on most days and on the weekends. If I cannot accept a booking or need to cancel he usually picks it up if the client approves. He is on Rover as well!

**** Schedule contraint and Weather policy ***

Due to rain or dangerous weather: services may be refunded if it is unsafe for myself to travel or bring your dogs outside your home. For severe weather or rain , walking appointments will include your pet being let out to potty and then remainder of the visit be inside play. In the event of a Hurricane / Tropical Storm , please take into account proper preparation and safety for you and your pets. I’m these cases - walks would be refunded/suspended.

If I am stuck in traffic or falling behind in my schedule I may limit walks by 10 minutes or less, meaning walks would be at least 20min. I of course will contact you prior in case of this situation and try to adjust service and my schedule accordingly. You should be notified via text but do not hesistate to call me.

*********PRICES FOR BATON ROUGE/LA CLIENTS!***********

I have no problem working with you on prices for some services if you are a college student or have limited funds.

If you are some ways away from me, for example : Zachary, Central, Port Allen, Denham Springs - I will be as accommodating as possible! Gas money will be added or already included in my prices! If you have a foster animal or special needs pet I have no problem spending extra time to give some TLC!

Dogs, cats, birds and more welcome!Baron Rouge, LA

We are a happy family of 4: my husband, I, our 6-year-old great Dane Leo and 1-year-old Great Dane Norman.

I'm very happy to offer dog, cat, bird, hamster etc services. I'm at home 24/7 so your baby will never be left alone. Due to the size of my babies I will be most happy boarding medium size dogs.

That doesn't mean that little ones are not welcome! Completely the opposite! I love little fur babies and if I get to take care of yours, your little rascal will probably spend most of their time here sitting in my lap :)

Currently we have a back yard that is not fenced. We do have a very nice walking path right behind our house though, so your baby will be walked there as often as its required.

Every evening we go to an off leash park and stay there for about 1h. Our rascals love to play there and I hope your fur baby will love it too!

We will send you a lot of pictures and videos to give you peace of mind! :)

If you decide to book day sitting/overnight stay with us we would like to meet you first to make sure that your dog feels comfortable in our house and is a good match with our pups.

* We are happy to host most breeds, but we will not accept aggressive dogs

* We only board one dog at a time ( if they are smaller we will consider two - but this we will decide on a case to case basis ).

* All dogs must be house trained

* Spayed females only

* Hamsters/birds boarding is 20.00 per night per pet

* I'm super happy to offer house visits, to check up on your pets and walk them when its required. I offer those services within 10 miles radius from my home. If you have multiple pets please contact me and I can give you a personalized price depending how far you are from me and what work is required.

Thank you for reading my profile :-)

Kitty's Canine ClubDenham Springs, LA

Leaving your dog can be very stressful, with that being said I can offer a safe loving home stay for your canine. We do morning playtime in my large fenced yard, the yard is a 5' fence and all gates are locked. Dogs are kenneled for safety during feeding time and when people are coming and going to prevent escapes..

Your canine will enjoy music for a relaxing stay and plenty of play. An abundance of toys are always available for your canine to keep busy.

Special needs are also welcomed. I have my own special boy Jaeger who is vision impaired. I know it means so much to make them feel comfortable and I will do my very best to make all dogs as comfortable as my own.

I volunteer with rescue dogs and love all breeds. Plenty of my time is dedicated to volunteering and fostering with Looking Fur Love Dog Rescue.

Only spay and neutered dogs are allowed, and they must be up to date on all shots. Vet records must be emailed prior to coming for your stay. Drop off and pick ups 7am-7pm by appointment only.

Why I love dog sitting

I have been a dog lover all my life! I decided to start dog sitting because of my love of different dogs than my own. I have fostered dogs for 9 years now which has given me a lot of hands on with different personalities.

About my yard

I have a large fenced in yard, 5 foot with locks on the gates. Even with this large fenced in yard no dog is left outside unattended.

My experience administering medication

I am comfortable administering medications, oral, topical or subcutaneous.

Safe neighborhood & fenced yardPrairieville, LA

UPDATE: I BUILT A NEW HOUSE WITH A FENCED-IN YARD AND WE'RE READY FOR DOGS AGAIN! I am home alone half of the time and my kids are there every other week. They LOVE pets. I had a toy rat terrier for 10 years and he was my first-born son (lol), but I have no pets at this time. I keep pets for company and I enjoy walking them in the neighborhood. I am also a runner, so I can run with your dog if that's something they are used to. I also house-sit and can stay at your home and care for your pets there.

I house-sat often while in college (a while ago). I work a full-time job, but can go visit during lunch breaks if your pet can't make it all day without a potty break.

Business Owner and Animal LoverBaton Rouge, LA

I am a 31 year old college graduate with extra time and affection to give to your dog. I have two yorkies, and they are so special to me! All the pets I watch I treat just like my own. I value keeping all my dog clients safe, comfortable and entertained in our home. They will receive plenty of love, pets, attention and play time. 

Our house is in the beautiful neighborhood, Lexington Park. Our yard has a secure fence that’s completely escape-proof. The lakes in the neighborhood are a perfect place for walks! There are three veterinary hospitals within two miles of our house.

During your pet’s stay you will receive daily photos and texts. I will keep you up-to-date on what we’ve been doing together. Typically, we play fetch, hang around the house, go on walks, hang out with my husband and play with toys. You can rest assured that he/she will be very well taken care of. Tips are not expected, but are happily accepted in cash after the stay. Feel free to message me with any questions.

I'd love to watch your puppy!Baton Rouge, LA

I love animals and I'd be excited to take care of yours! I have two poodle-elkhound puppies of my own and I grew up with labradors and small dogs. I have experience in watching cats and reptiles as well. I'm flexible with my scheduling, detailed when it comes to your pet's specific care, and willing to go the extra mile so your pet will be safe and happy. If your pet stays in my home please note that although I live in an apartment I live in a community with lots of trails to walk, fields to explore, and fenced in dog-runs. Puppies are my favorite to watch, but I have experience with all ages, sizes, and temperaments. I can't wait to meet you and your pet family!

Just Like HomeBaton Rouge, LA

I love dogs, my dogs love dogs! My Poms and I are ready, willing and able to sit/board YOUR pups over the holidays!

All three of my pups are excellent hosts for your pup, especially Bella, our pack leader. Of course, being Pomeranians, they will yap insanely when you show up, but that's just what smol dogs do!

We offer a small, fenced yard, and run of the house for their stay, also, we offer as much spoiling as necessary. Once a day trip to the dog park (with your approval) sleeping in the bed (or wherever), and all the petting they want.

If your dog has a "routine", I am happy to uphold it.

Our hours: we're 24/7, if you need.

The only injection I am comfortable giving is an epi-pen. No problems administering oral meds, though.

I will make sure your baby is comfortable for bad weather.

A happy dog is one of my favorite things. Last year, I lost my oldest 2 weeks shy of his 17th bday, so all ages are welcome. All 3 of my dogs are very sociable, although they come across initially as pretty nuts. We are not fancy, but we're clean and comfy.

I am also a volunteer at the Capital Area Animal Welfare Society.

Lidia's home is a great place to board your dog. We were concerned about our dog's separation issues, but no need to worry with Lidia. Not sure our dog wanted to come home she liked it so much at Lidia's.

Will definitely use again when needed.
