Our situation is perfect for your dog because one of us is always at home. Our primary focus is your dog’s happiness, and we do our utmost to maintain your dog’s typical routine.

Why I love dog sitting

I've been a dog lover my whole life and I've had dogs while growing up & throughout adulthood. I currently only have a cat though. When my beautiful dog Chloe passed away she had been such a huge part of my life. I had her for 16 wonderful years, and I just haven't been able to bring myself to get another dog yet.

In addition to my own pets, I worked at a busy doggy daycare, boarding and rescue facility in Chicago for several years. I have experience with all different breeds, sizes and demeanors, and I'm knowledgable in basic training techniques.

Meet my pets

1 dog friendly cat, Stanley.

About my yard

I do have a fenced in backyard for lots of outside playtime, and I never leave a dog outside unattended.

My experience administering medication

Yes. I have experience administering oral medications as well as injections.

Student/Housekeeper/Dog LoverWeinland Park, Columbus, OH

I believe that I would be a good choice because I'm home pretty regularly and I thoroughly enjoy spending time with animals. My partner, Alex works from home and would be here throughout the day to keep your pup company when I step out for work/class. In the past, I have worked at both a dog kennel and rescue facility for a few years and have raised dogs my whole life.

I have been on Rover for almost three years at this point and have established a method of caretaking that is effective in helping your pup feel at home with us. I'm a true dog lover and carry no preference for breed, age or ability; I’ve sat for pups as mighty as a 195 lb mastiff to a pair of tiny 2 lb, 3 month old cavipoos. I’m also very comfortable with administering medications and meeting extra needs for dogs with disabilities.

I would possibly take your pup to the dog park too (if you'd like and if time allows) and I’m pretty flexible with last minute requests and cancellations.

I am a student (Environmental Policy @ OSU) and I work as a housekeeper part time to pay the bills therefore my house is clean, puppy safe and outsmarted.

I have two dogs and both are friendly and happy poodle mixes. There's Miss Kitty (Cockapoo age 9) and Broadus (Yorkie Poo age 2).

Feel free to message me with any questions you may have ??

A place where your dog can be a dogFranklinton, Columbus, OH

Working with dogs has always been my passion. That passion has led me through several careers working with dogs, from working at the humane society, to the vet’s office then to boarding facilities. I always felt guilty leaving my dogs at home to go care for others, so I decided to combine both worlds and become a professional pet sitter from my home.

I studied animal behavior and my experience in the multitude of fields has made me well-balanced when it comes to all breeds, sizes, temperaments and behaviors. In the past I have trained dogs professionally as well as supervise play groups of 25+ dogs, although I operate on a much smaller scale now. Because of my experience, I am also comfortable and skilled in handling behaviorally and/or socially challenged dogs.

I spend a ton of time with each dog and get to know them all intimately as if they were my own. I understand their personalities, quirks, and what they are or aren’t comfortable with. Because of this, it is very easy for me to ensure the safety and happiness of every visitor that comes to my home.

A lot of my clients are reoccurring guests and are like family so adding new guests is a very natural transition.

My top priority is to make sure owners and pets alike are equally satisfied with the stay-cation or daycare.

I have a fenced-in front and back yard and 2 spare bedrooms that we use for guests that aren’t crate trained. I also don't mind sharing a bed if that is what your companion is used to.

I am constantly taking photos of the dogs and sometimes tend to send too many (if that’s even a thing?!). While here, your dog will feel like THEY are the ones on vacation. I am very flexible with requests and can accommodate most schedules. If price is an issue, I am willing to discuss that as well-please don't hesitate to ask!

I do not require meet and greets but I am always happy to accommodate per request! I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged friend!

Cafe Wakefern, LLC (home full-time)Framingham, Columbus, OH

Hello! My name is Bridgett. I pet sit full time from home. I am licensed, carry my own insurance, and am Pet CPR & First Aid Certified. You can follow us on Facebook and Instagram @CafeWakefern.

I love dogs and I'll treat your pup with all of the attention, affection, patience and love that he/she deserves! Also, you will receive no less than three videos or photos a day with a small recap of how your pup is doing (feeding; elimination; play activity; overall wellbeing, etc.)!

**New Clients** I have a very thorough new client on-boarding process which requires a questionnaire being completed by the parent, proof of vaccines and a scheduled meet and greet at my home with you and your pet. I can accommodate last minute bookings for my repeats, however, if you are a new client, I will not be able to accommodate a stay request with less than 72 hours notice.

**About my home/services**

I own my home. It is a 4 level split house right outside of Easton Townecenter. I have a half acre of fenced in yard that borders a forest. It'll be pure fun for your pup to explore, adventure and play. I also pay a company to service my house to clean up all pet waste, so it'll always stay clean for your pup.

**About my neighborhood**

Mostly retired individuals live in my secluded neighborhood. There are not many dogs in the area. It's quiet, sits at the bottom of a cul de sac, and borders the woods. I'm also just a couple miles from CMH airport, so picking up or dropping off your baby for travel is a breeze.

**What to expect**

Cuddles, lots of fetch in the backyard, TV time on the couch (if permitted by the parent) and lots of play with the dogs that currently reside in the home. I buy natural treats from a local farmer market, so your pet is welcome to partake (with parent permission). In the summer months, I can fill a small baby pool so that your pup can go for a splash! When left unattended, arrangements can be made for your pet to watch television or listen to music. Other suggested activities are welcome. I have experience with special needs puppies; please inquire for more information!

**Special rules or requests**

I take pet ownership very seriously, and I hope you do, too. For the safety of my pups and yours, your dog MUST be current on all vaccinations, flea/tick medicine, heart worm and any other preventative care. Also, a mandatory meet and greet is required. I want your pet to feel safe, welcome and enjoy their stay. If your dog is ill, for the safety of my pets and other visiting pets, I will not be able to accommodate a stay.

Note: With the escalation in the canine flu virus, I have vaccinated my pups, and the vaccine is mandatory. I also practice very strict hygiene practices in my home (surfaces/crates/play areas are sanitized every day).

****Hotel Style Fee Schedule****

For boarding, $35 covers the entire first day that they're here, overnight, and check out is 11AM. Pick ups after 11AM will result in an additional daycare charge.

****Pick up / Drop off Times*****

Our pick up and drop off windows are as follows...

Pets can be dropped off, or picked up within these windows. If you need a special accommodation outside of these windows, please let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate! Constant traffic in and out of the house all day can be very disruptive to the pups and myself, so I'd greatly appreciate it if you can schedule your arrivals/departures within these hours: 6a-11a &

4p-7p.

Pups that are not picked up by 7P will be held overnight and available for pick-up the following day with an additional overnight charge.

Farm grown and very activeVictorican Village, Columbus, OH

Hello, I'm Tory! I am a personal trainer and very active individual accustomed to exercise. Growing up, I lived on a farm with all kinds of animals. I have been around dogs all of my life. All different ages, sizes, and energy levels. I helped raise dogs from the day they were born until their muzzles turned grey. I also showed dogs in dog obedience shows through 4-H and took dog obedience classes with an instructor. I always enjoyed taking my dogs out on walks through the woods and pastures. Having had working dogs, I was also able to teach our border collies how to herd sheep with verbal and whistled commands and worked with our guard dogs. Having other animals on the farm, I was required to teach each dog how to behave around many other animals, both larger and smaller than them.

When they're here, they are Family!Near Southside, columbus, OH

I worked as a kennel tech for 5+years and did vet tech duties at Animal Medical Center under Dr. Rybka so I understand how breeds differ and what is needed in different life stages. I'm very observant when it comes to dog needs and other pets as well. I have been around many different types of pets all my life since I was young and willing to sit for different types of animals such as birds, lizards, hamsters, rabbits, etc. I work from home so your animals will get a lot of attention from me and my children. We take our fur babies almost every where we can so when your animals are here they are family and will be treated as such! Also I make sure my clients are comfortable. I'm big on not taking dogs back to back to ensure my aussie doesnt feel any kind of jealousy and to make sure I can clean and sanitize things. Your dog will be in a safe and healthy environment.

100% dog loverSouthside, columbus, OH

I absolutely love all animals, especially dogs. I have always been passionate about animals & how they deserve to be treated since I was a little kid. I have been a vegetarian for 10 years, since I was 11 years old. I believe animals deserve to be taken care of like children, they need to be fed, played with & to get exercise & to be nurtured with a lot of love on a daily basis! I have dogsat before & taken care of my neighbors & friends dogs over the last few years & I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. For me, to be trusted to help provide a service for peoples' dogs when they are unable to is an honor. I have a 3 yr old daughter & she loves dogs already. She is very gentle with them & we have a ton of fun with all the dogs I sit :)

Home Full Time To Train and PlayNorthland, Columbus, OH

There’s just nothing better than getting to take care of a dog. I love being able to see them happy and healthy, but I also think they teach me a lot in the process too! I enjoy taking care of dogs both mentally and physically so that they have a full experience when they’re in my care. But overall, I just love that I can give back to dogs and my community all at the same time as a sitter!

I have a long history of providing care to animals. I used to foster and help several no-kill animal rescues like Austin Pets Alive, Safe House Animal Rescue, Community Cat, and Paws Chicago. I also worked at a spay & neuter clinic for a while doing some shots, fluids, medications, microchips, and working in the recovery room. I can do basic grooming things like nails, brushing, sanitary cut, etc. I am also a positive reinforcement trainer. That means that your dog will be in good hands with me no matter what. I LOVE German Shepherds but I am happy to work with all dogs.

My household is very welcoming to new dogs! I currently live with a German Shepherd named Rae and a Fox Terrier/Dachshund mix named Scout, and my husband Marcus. We all love having new friends around the house to take care of, so your dog will be right at home with us. Best of all, I’ll be home at all times during the day with your dog. That means that I’m a good fit for dogs that are used to having a human presence around them during the day. I also have flexible hours, so I’m happy to work around owners with unorthodox schedules.

I typically like to schedule a meet-and-greet when taking on a new client. That way, we can all make sure that we’re a good fit for one another, and have the opportunity to chat face-to-face about your dog. I love to get as much information as possible about your dog before I start caring for them, so a meet is the perfect chance to make that happen. My goal is to provide a holistic experience for your pup, so getting to meet with the owners first is the first step in making that happen. Plus, I just love meeting new dogs.
