Hi everyone!

This message is intended for my repeat clients and potential new ones.

->

This has been a long time coming... I finally signed a commercial lease for two new restaurants and a bar and we've started construction so my days of dog watching will be coming to an end sadly. Thank you for choosing me as your sitter over the years! :)

I may be available to help out on a case by case basis so feel free to inquire!

*****************************************************

I live in a 3800 square foot spacious Capitol Hill home. The 3rd floor is dedicated to the dogs where they have open access to a large outdoor terrace.

I have over 20+ years of experience watching, fostering & taking care of pets. I’ve watched thousands of dogs since joining Rover.com nearly four years ago & have been ranked a top sitter by Rover!

WHAT TO PACK:

Just the essentials. Less is better to make it easier for everyone!

* leash, food in a large ziploc bag, medicine, poop bags, treats

* please be courteous and ensure your pet is clean & brushed prior to arriving

* No need for crates, toys or bowls - I have plenty!

******************************************************

Drop offs & pickups can be scheduled Monday to Friday 10am-7pm. Saturday to Sunday by appointment only.

******************************************************

Please be considerate of the appointment time & let me know if there will be any delays as I keep a tight schedule for dependable dog care. Those that arrive more than 15 minutes late will be subject to a $20 late arrival fee.

Snuggle & Play Pet Care ❤️Millersville, MD

Hi! I am a professional pet sitter and I would love to care for your pets while you are away. My passion for animals is stronger than anything in the world; I have always loved animals. I have a degree in business management and I am hoping to open up my own Dog Day Care in the future. I am not a "hobby sitter," this is my full time job and I treat it as such.

My home is perfect for doggy guests! The entire 1300 sq ft basement is all for the dogs! I own 2 dogs and a cat, but they will not be in the guest dog area (my social dog may be included in playtime sometimes). I spend a lot of time with the pets that I watch. I love playing fetch in the backyard or just cuddling on the couch. I provide crates, food & water bowls, toys, dog beds, and everything your dog could ever ask for! All you need to bring is your dog, their collar and leash, their food, and a small blanket to remind them of home. I will administer medications if needed. I also love to take pictures & you will get plenty of updates to ease your mind! I guarantee your pets will have a blast staying with me!

IMPORTANT INFO:

Drop offs and pick ups are scheduled between 8:00 am - 9:30 am or 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm for boarding and daycare. If you arrive between 9:31 am - 10:00 am (at the latest) or 5:31 pm - 6:00 pm, you will be charged a $20 late fee. Dogs will be boarded for the night if not picked up by 6:00 pm (the boarding rate will apply). If your dog is being boarded, and you want to pick up in the 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm time slot, the daycare rate will apply. All new clients must sign my daycare/boarding contract.

I serve ice cream on hot afternoonsAnnapolis, MD

Bay Ridge area of Annapolis. Quiet neighborhood with sidewalks and 15 minutes from a beautifully landscaped park.

Single family home with doggy door and locked fenced back yard. The area is treated with animal-friendly Sevin dust to repel fleas, ticks, etc.

Approximately 30 years as a volunteer with a rescue group, primarily fostering the older or infirmed hounds.

A wonderful vet practice is within 2 miles. The emergency vets are 15 minutes away.

I am retired and at home 99% of time. My last dog, a Basset named Suzie, died ten years ago leaving me with a BIG vacancy in my life and home.

Your babies can sleep with me if they want!

PS: Please note that I will not take an unneutered dog - male or female. Or any one with aggression issues. The welfare of all dogs in my care is my primary concern.

Work from Home & Flexible ScheduleArnold, MD

I will take one client at a time please ask! All but my profile photo are old and I am in the process of having new ones taken.

I am happy to work with people on a budget, offer discounts for neighbors, and senior citizens. I am comfortable with taking care of most animals and plants, so please ask! Training, grooming, and working on behavior are just some of my areas of focus. Most important is making both animal and owner as happy as can be...

I have a deep passion for taking care of animals, so being a pet sitter is a really great way for me to help make dogs/cat happy whenever I can, and balance out my work life on the laptop! I know just how much love and happiness pups/cat bring into our lives, so getting to take care of them really is a dream come true for me. It’s just my goal to bring a smile to as many dogs’ faces as I possibly can! Not only is it great to make our furry friends happy, but I love that I can give back to the community as well by providing owners with peace of mind while they’re away. All in all, I just love seeing animals happy!

My lifelong passion for the welfare of creatures has extended to lots of different areas in my life. I have worked in places like Alley Cat Allies and no-kill shelters in the VA/DC/MD area. It has been great getting to work with them and I have learned a great deal in that time as well. I have experience with training and sitting for all size animals, so everyone is welcome! I have adopted shelter animals and trained dogs such as an Akita, Maltipoo, Samoyed, Portuguese water dog, Poodle, and many more. My cat passed away this past June and I have been hoping to get some more face time caring for pups and cats alike. Being on Rover gives me a chance to work with animals and do a service for the community I very much care about.

When taking on a new client, I always like to schedule a meet-and-greet. It’s a great opportunity for me to make sure that we’re all a good fit for one another. Plus, we get to chat face-to-face about your care expectations, which is always great. I have lots of questions! I love to meet new animals, too. When I meet your pup/cat for the first time, I’ll always get down on their level and let them approach me, so they know that I’m a friendly presence. I’m sure we’ll become friends in no time at all!

When your pup/cat is under my care, the happiness and comfort of you and your pet is my number one concern. I always work directly with owners to ensure their pooch’s daily training and activity goals are met. I love using the Rover mobile app to track the care I give and send photos. Sending daily updates and photos is a great way for you to see how much fun we’re having together! I have no issue giving medication or fulfilling special needs the best I can. I want to make this process as low stress and pleasant as possible for all parties, and hopefully leaving a smile on their faces. Owners can contact me anytime and I will respond as soon as possible, usually within minutes! Please ask me about the many discounts I give.

All proceeds are donations for my chronic health issues and complex health care.

Your Dog will be loved/cared forDeanwood, Washington, DC, DC

Animals are a big part of my life, as I have cared for my own rescue dog for the last 6 years. I am able to provide regular care, potty breaks, and play-time. I like to know about the routine you like to keep for your dog, so that I can aim to keep your dog's routine consistent. I also have some experience dealing with animals with medical conditions and can provide basic medications as needed. I am used to multi-pet homes and have a flexible schedule and my own transportation.

I am very particular about my own dogs' care, so I well understand a pet owner's anxiety. I am happy to provide regular updates and assurances that your dog is well-cared for and loved while you are at work, out of town, etc.

Fur babies are the best babies!Bowie, MD

Leaving your children or pets with a stranger can be a difficult decision, so it's my job to make sure that you and your dog feel as comfortable and at home as possible. I want you to have the best day at work or vacation possible, just being able to focus on yourself :) The last thing any mom or dad wants to think about is if their "baby" is safe and happy without you there.

My husband and I treat our dogs better than most people treat their children, because to us they aren't just "pets", they are apart of our family. And because they are your babies, we want you and them to feel at home and apart of our family as well :)

I work from home, so your dogs will have a constant companion :) I imagine you'll want to be updated on how and what they are doing, which is why I'm here! Sending pictures and FaceTime can happen whenever you'd like updates or to just say hello! Of course, if you're at work and only want to be contacted in a case of an emergency, then that can happen as well. No matter how much or how little of communication you want, through whatever media (text, FaceTime, call, email) I will do, so that you have the best piece of mind while you're away from your little one (or if your dogs are like mine, big ones :) ).

I know a big concern for parents when they leave their dogs at a stranger's house is all of the possible variables that "can go wrong" that you don't have control over. Here, it's just my husband, me, and our 2 dogs. We don't have children and rarely have houseguests, but if that did occur, we would tell you ahead of time and answer any questions you have about them, you could even meet them! All of our friends and family are pet lovers, and to be quite honest, if they weren't, they wouldn't be spending time at our house.

My husband and I are both fit and in our late 20s. We both played sports growing up and I actually continued on throughout college. We have the energy for as much play as your dog(s) need, but also the maturity to provide the best care and safety of your dog(s) as well. We know the signs of territory or object aggression/resource guarding and having experience in dealing with them. I have dealt with barking, marking, shyness, overweight, underweight, injured, old, young.... I've experienced a lot of different types and traits in dogs...and just like my opinion with humans, it's a judgement free zone; I just want to make sure your dogs are taken care of to the best of my ability and done just how you would if you were here!

I have 2 awesome (neutered) dogs named Hogan and Big Fudge :) You can see their little profiles on my page :) I love my dogs so much, like any parent I think they are the greatest things in the whole world. But I think it's important to state that I don't have rose colored glasses/blinders on. If my dog does something or is in the wrong, and I sense they are making your dog(s) uncomfortable, I will separate them. Your dogs happiness and safety will always be a priority, my boys are happy hanging out anywhere :) Now, I don't foresee anything happening since both of my boys are not territorial and LOVE making new friends, but we want you as dog parents to have the most information possible! They love running and playing in the backyard and lounging around the house with everyone, dog or human!

As far as my house goes, we have a pretty normal sized Rancher-style 3 bed 2 bath. We have both carpet and tile throughout. Dogs usually like to spend their time in my room on my bed and/or in either living room, but their favorite tends to be outside. I have a big fenced in yard and live in a great neighborhood (filled with seriously the nicest people) for plenty of walks and exercise. Even though my yard is fenced in, I always go outside with the dogs, just to make sure everyone is safe and happy :) Plus, if I'm not there, who will throw the ball?? ;)

I can work with any feeding/walking schedule that you and your dog have. I am very flexible and obviously want your dogs to have as much consistency in their day to day as possible! Just let me know if there are any food allergies, so that I can make sure your pup is safe and healthy!

I know that just like people, dogs have their own personalities... so if before deciding to stay with us, you'd like to come over with your dog(s), to meet me and my boys and check out the place, just let me know! Whether it's for a few hours a day or the whole weekend, I want everyone to be confident and comfortable!

I hope whomever you choose, is a perfect fit for you and your pups, and if it's me, I can't wait to meet you all! :)

Huge fenced yard & home full-timeLaurel, MD

I know it's hard to be away from your sweet pup.

My husband and I love dogs, and when your pet stays with us, you can be confident that it will enjoy a happy, calm atmosphere and dedicated care. We will send you pictures and updates every day, so you'll always know what's going on.

You can relax knowing that your pup is receiving great care, and having a lot of fun! Our huge, fenced yard is a big hit with our canine guests.

We're available for both boarding and doggy day care, so whether you're away for days, weeks, or just hours, your pup has a home away from home, right here.

In case of emergencies, we are less than 5 minutes away from the area's premier animal hospital, which has a 24/7 emergency room.

I've had dogs all of my life, from puppies to elders. I enjoy pouring my affection into these sweet creatures.

I'm quite familiar with the special needs of dogs of every age. I am comfortable administering medications to your dog, whether orally or injected.

We are home full-time, so we're available most days.

Full-time care, large fenced yard.Bowie, MD

I take the worry out of leaving your fur-baby while you are away - after all, its their vacation, too. My goal is to make your canine comfy while having fun and being safe. My years of experience and love of dogs make my home their home. I have experience with breeds who are large, small and in between, some are seniors with special needs, and some have restricted diets. Lots of exercise in the yard (weather permitting), morning and evening walks, playing chase and being chased, are just some of the ways the dogs give and receive attention while guests in my home. Pet parents share their fur-baby's vacation experience through written updates and photos via text and emails. I do not have a favorite breed -- I pamper them all.
