Weekend WhiskersHoover, AL

Welcome & Thanks for checking out our page! PLEASE take the time to read everything below.

May 2019 Update: We are currently NOT accepting new clients. Due to our high volume of repeat guests, we simply do not have much availability for Meet N Greets. Meet N Greets tend to work best when we do not have other pups here, which is rare around our house :)

ABOUT LAUREN & CHRIS: We are slightly dog obsessed and love sharing our home with your babies. When we first started dogsitting, we intended it to be weekends only (hence the name Weekend Whiskers), but due to our amazing guests and expansion, we keep dogs 7 days a week.

OUR SCHEDULE: Lauren recently quit her corporate job to pursue her dream of going to nursing school. She is home most of the time studying, which means your dogs are rarely at our house alone. On weekends, we do nothing but stay around the house and play!

OUR HOUSE: We are nestled in the Bluff Park section of Hoover. We have a large fenced in backyard, and our entire basement is pup-friendly, with tile floors, a TV for the pups, plenty of toys, and a pup cam so that we can watch the dogs while we are at work. Please note this camera is just for Lauren & Chris’s use, but we will send you plenty of pictures throughout the day!

OUR PUPS: While our 3 pups are best friends, they could not be any more different. Hattie Belle is a 8 year old beagle/dachshund mix. Her hobbies include laying on the bed all day, eating, receiving belly rubs, and doing nothing at all. Tanner is a 6 year old lab mix and enjoys going 1000 mph all the time. He loves all balls, sticks, and water. Penny is a 10(ish) year old dachshund. What she lacks in size, she makes up in personality. Penny loves all dogs and all laps.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to protect the well-being of your dogs as well as other dogs, your pups must be up to date on the following:

-Vaccinations

-Heartworm and flea preventative

-Males MUST be neutered. We have found that unaltered dogs have a tendency to be aggressive towards other male dogs.

OUR GOAL: We get it! Leaving your fur baby with a complete stranger is terrifying, but we promise to love on your fur baby as if he or she is our own. Effective 11/4/2016, 10% of our proceeds go to local rescue shelters in the Birmingham area. Donations are sent on a biweekly basis. Thank you for helping us support animals in need!

ALMOST HomeCrestwood South, Birmingham, AL

For almost 6 years I had the privilege of calling myself mom to a wonderful, beautiful Shepherd mix who sadly, I lost to a brief illness (fall 2014). While I know my sweet boy can never be replaced in my heart, animals have the amazing power to help heal and are always a bright spot in the day. If I can bring some happiness to yours by providing a safe and loving temporary home while you're away, then it is a win win for you, me and your pet. For several years I also worked with an animal rescue organization as a foster parent and have had several amazing pups call my house home before finding their forever families. I love all animals but have a heart for those who might be feeling a little sad (like when mom/dad leave) and need some extra TLC. My back yard is large and fenced and I have a great walking trail just outside the front door so your pet will be well exercised while staying with me. While I do work away from the home, I am close by and come home at lunch when I have dogs staying so they are not left more than 4 hours without going out and getting some play time. I believed, as you might, that no one could every care for my baby like I did but, should you leave yours with me, I assure you I'll be a close second.

Dogs are my world!Trussville, AL

Growing up I had my family’s 2 black labs follow me wherever I went. I’ve always loved animals more then anything (which is why I’m currently in Animal Behavior College.) I have a 10 month old Boxer pup named Gizmo. Gizmo means everything to me. He is a vital member of my family, so when I’m taking care of someone’s pet (family member), I understand the responsibility attatched to having fun with my new furry friends. I genuinely enjoy taking pictures of smiling pups to send to the owners. I’m never late, and I never forget to send fun photos because I understand that it can be uncomfortable at first to have an unfamiliar face around such an important part of your life. Part of my job is to make sure you’re aware that your pet is safe and having a great time. I also love working with cats. I would love to be an important part of your pets life just like Gizmo is to mine!

Dogs Are My Favorite PeopleBirmingham, AL

I love dogs. Always have. I mean, I like people and other animals too...but dogs are the best. Big ones, small ones, everywhere in between, all breeds. I've had dogs my whole life, and currently have three of my own. My time spent with my own dogs is my best time, and I'm sure it will be the same with yours. My own dogs get along with everybody, and they're super social with other dogs too. If we do boarding (or anything else, for that matter), I always offer to do a meet and greet. All pups in my care get lots of exercise, and I'll send you pictures and updates. There's flexibility in my schedule, and for any day-care or boarding situation, I'll always make sure I'm able to spend plenty of time at home before committing. All dogs generally have the run of my home all day, but if your dog usually gets crated that's also ok. If you're able to provide the crate that is great, but if not I have a couple in different sizes that we can use. Looking forward to meeting you and your pups!

Gina's Petting Sitting InvernessBirmingham, AL

I have owned dogs from miniatures to large (3 Rotties, 1 Shepard and 5 mix). I have been caring for pets and training dogs most of my life and rescuing as soon as I was old enough to walk the neighborhood. I have volunteered at the humane society in Birmingham where I loved and cared for all our orphans as well as working the mobile adoptions on Saturdays. I will make your best friend welcome and so happy they will not want to leave.

I have been blessed by these wonderful beings all my life. We live in a gated community with a private dog park so your dog will have a great safe place to play while you are away.

This is my passion and my mission!

Patio, trails, and dog play yard!Birmingham, AL

A wooded yard with patio and trails is available for the dogs to get plenty of exercise. Play groups will be supervised. The backyard is easily accessible so dogs can go outside whenever needed.

Our four-legged housemates include Nina, a playful 3 year old Black LabraDane, Dottie, an older Border Collie Mix, and two black cats who love dogs. Dogs of any energy level will be in good company here!

We are very accommodating to dogs with special needs, whether it be administering medicine or extra care. Grooming and bathing is available upon request. Dogs can be walked as needed.

Home full-time - large fenced yardBirmingham, AL

I will cherish your dogs and make sure they is well looked after while with me in my home. My two elderly rat terriers both passed away, the 13-year-old in December 2016, and the 14-year-old in August 2017. I can give oral medications, if needed. Your dog will be fed and cared for according to your schedule, so it will not experience any drastic change in routine. I am 67 years old, and have had dogs and cats since childhood, except for about 20 years when I had only cats. Your dogs will be loved and petted and walked and fed and watered and then loved and petted again. My neighborhood is quiet, and several of the neighbors have dogs of their own. Ruffner Mountain is half a mile to the south for a hike in the woods, and East Lake Park is half a mile to the north for a leisurely one mile walk around the lake.

Dog Mom/servant; Fenced in yardBirmingham, AL

I’ve raised tiny dachshunds and giant Great Danes. My dogs are my babies and I basically cater to their every need. I have experience with special diets, feeding tubes, administering oral medications, IM injections, Sub-q boluses and post-op care in case your baby has any special needs. I am happy to take your dog to any vet appointments when needed, hiking, even a brewery if they enjoy being around lots of people and other dogs. I have a male 4yrr old Great Dane who is great with other dogs. The only time I’m not with my dog is M-F 8-4. I adore all animals and I would love to meet yours!

If I’m unavailable or not a good fit, I’m happy to refer you to another great sitter!
