Loving Care and Fenced In YardCANTON, OH

I have been around dogs since I was born. I am a huge dog lover and animal activist and have been sitting for dogs for about 10 years. I have also rescued and fostered dogs, in the past, for many years as well. I have experience with all dog ages and sizes. I can administer medicine and accommodate most requests.

During your dog's stay they will be treated like part of our family. They are welcome to lounge on the couch, run laps in the the back yard, and even lounge on the back porch! I am home throughout the day so I will be able to give your dog all the love and attention they need!

My husband and I have always had dogs growing up and now have 4 of our own, 3 of which were rescued from awful situations. My two girls absolutely love dogs and I am certain one of them, if not both, will be vets when they grow up! They love meeting new doggy friends and love helping take care of them while they are staying in our home.

While I do not have any breed or size preferences in dogs I watch, I can not watch a dog in heat, an aggressive dog, nor a dog that is not up to date on all vaccinations and current on flea and tick prevention.

My schedule is super flexible so I can accommodate most any day and time needed for care, even short notices. Please do not hesitate to ask any and all questions. Our dogs are more than a just a dog, they are family!

I will give your dog plenty of love and attention. I will treat your dog as my own family. I have been an animal lover all my life and have fostered & rescued dogs and cats over the years.

I have no problem giving your dog medication if needed or any dietary needs.

I currently do not have a dog of my own. My last dog passed away in 2014. But I will get another dog someday.

I do have 1 cat, she is not a problem with dogs. She has her own area she can go to if the dogs bother her.

We love to go for walks here, weather permitting !!!

I also offer doggy daycare & Bath's

Sorry: I do not take dogs who use pee pads. I do not take dogs that are not house broken. I do not take Pit bulls.

COVID-19: Ever since the virus has hit I have not allowed anyone inside my house except your dog. I do practice social distancing. I can do meet & greets just fine. We can either meet in my backyard or in my garage. If you decide to book with me I have a table set up in my garage where you can put all your dogs things. After you leave I will wipe everything off that I can before bringing it into the house. If you have any questions, just ask !

Home full time and fenced yardCanton, OH

Not only am I a huge animal lover, I also have grown up with animals my whole life. I currently have two dogs. I also foster rabbits until they find their forever home. I'm a stay at home mom and we have a very large fenced in yard. My one dog is high anxiety so I have a lot of experience dealing with those personalities. I also have experience giving animals medicine. My current animals need a lot of grooming so I also can offer that if your dog needs that maintenance. I like to feed the dogs separately to avoid any friction. We have a lot of dog toys in a basket. I also give treats when they do a good thing. Let me love your animal!

***Please note any dog over 20lbs must be calm. I can not have larger dogs that are hyper cause I have small children.

Laura Loves DogsUniontown/Green/Springfield Twnshp, OH

**Please know that if you want me to dog sit in your own home, I am fine with any size dog! Just for boarding in my own home size is usually limited to small or medium sized dogs. **Also, prices are "per dog," but I usually offer a discount for multiple dogs.

Hi! My name is Laura and I've been a dog and pet lover my whole life. I've owned and loved my own miniature Schnoodle for 14 years now (Sniffy), and grew up with dogs. I've done pet sitting and dog walking on and off on my own for the last 20 years, and was also a professional dog walker and pet sitter for a year in WI.

As a pastor's wife and homeschooling mother, I have a busy but flexible schedule, so will do my best to work with your timing and needs. My husband and children all love dogs and are very good with them as well, so if you choose to have me care for your dog(s) in my home, it will be well loved! Our own dog is friendly with other dogs, too, but has recently become blind and almost deaf... My husband will also be around most mornings, evenings and weekends to help care for your pet. We're within 3 minutes of a vet office, and within 10 minutes of a 24-hour emergency vet center.

Our backyard is large and shady, and long leashes are hooked into the ground for your dog to have virtually free roam but the safety of not being able to run off. I can also take your dog on a walk or play catch in our backyard! I am comfortable and experienced in administering many medications as well. You may bring your own dog bed or crate if your pet is used to that for sleeping or when we have to run out for a bit, or your dog can sleep wherever they'd like in the house, including on couches and on some beds.

I am also available to come to your house for pet visits, walks and for overnight stays! And if you have multiple pets that I am caring for at your home or more than one dog that you may need to stay here, there will probably be a discount for those additional pets.

Wherever you choose to have me care for your pet, know that it will be in good hands and will be cared for and loved as if it were my own!

Large Fenced Yard to Run & PlayHartville, OH

Hello! My name is Erika and I was raised with and have always owned dogs. A house is not a home without one and I understand how much your dog can mean to you, just as mine mean so much to me. Keeping your dog safe and happy is my highest priority.

About Me:

I truly LOVE dogs and love to play with and spoil them. I'm 30, married, and have 2 children, ages 4 and 11, who have been raised to love and respect the boundaries of dogs. I work part-time on night shift as an RN.

Because I work 2 nights/week, my schedule is pretty flexible and working night shift allows me to be home everyday. The nights I am at work, my husband is present so there is always someone home.

My Dogs:

I have a lively Chihuahua and a younger, well-behaved German shepherd. My dogs are kept up to date on their shots and flea/tick/heartworm preventative and my Chihuahua is neutered.

If you have a small dog and are concerned about him/her staying with a German shepherd, please do not hesitate to come meet Katana! Katana was raised from the day I brought her home to be calm and gentle with smaller dogs. She is very friendly and gets along with every dog she meets, big and small. She's very smart and she'll even completely leave a dog alone if I tell her to. Katana and I have completed puppy preschool and obedience classes and she's earned her AKC Advanced Canine Good Citizen and Novice Trick Dog titles.

I utilize positive-reinforcement to build and strengthen my relationship with my dogs. I enjoy learning about dog behavior and understand the importance that exercise, mental stimulation, and structured walks have in maintaining health and reducing boredom.

My dogs are all crate-trained and only my German shepherd is still crated when we are not home, just to ensure her safety. They are not left alone for more than 2-3 hours, if I have any errands to run during the day. When I'm home, the dogs are not crated, and they are free to relax on the couch or play inside or out in our fenced yard with a covered deck.

Why Choose Me?

I'm dependable, flexible, LOVE animals, and promise to treat your dog like my own. Your dog will never go without play, love, or snuggles. I live in a quiet neighborhood and have a large, fenced in yard that is perfect for running or playing a good game of fetch.

It is vital to me that your dog and you have a great experience, so feel free to call/text anytime and I will get back to you ASAP. I can send updates with pictures and videos whenever you'd like during your pet's stay. Your dog will be treated like family and you can enjoy your time away knowing he/she is well cared for and loved.

Before watching your dog for the first time, I'd like to arrange a Meet & Greet so you and your dog can get to know me and mine and feel free to come with any questions or information you'd like me to know about your dog.

Thanks!

Experienced, reliable & respectfulCanton, OH

I have been housesitting for the past 7 years, but have always been an animal lover. I currently work at a boarding kennel/veterinary clinic in Navarre. This does limit my schedule's flexibility, however I am still available for drop-in visits, walks and boarding at my house.

Boarding Info:

I have a large fenced in backyard!

My dogs are both crate and free roaming when I am not home (depending on how long they’ll be alone).

I do have two wonderful pups of my own, Bailey (Labrador Retriever) and Ernie (Golden Retriever). Both are very friendly and energetic. If your pups like to play, I can guarantee they’ll be going home ready for a nap.

I have two awesome step kids (Ages 6 and 8) that are here several days of the week and alternating weekends. They are very respectful of pets and know how to handle new pets. If your dog has never been around children I ask that you please let me know when booking so a smart and safe introduction can be made.

For any boarding in my home, a meet and greet is required prior to booking.

I grew up participating in the 4H program so there are very few animals I haven't taken care of. I have experience with chickens, cows, goats, bunnies, lambs, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, fish (including exotic) and birds. I am very experienced handling older and more demanding pets including diabetic ones.

Current clients have described me as being caring, responsible and reliable. In addition to reviews listed here on Rover I can provide contact information for a number of previous clients to provide additional reassurance. I would love to take care of your fury family members while you're away! Message me with any additional questions or concerns, I look forward to it!

I will love your dogsCanton, OH

I have been working with dogs for more than 10 years. Since I was young I would help train our family dogs as well as rescue and rehome animals that were dumped in the field across from my childhood home. In May of 2018, I started working at a professional boarding/daycare facility. While at that job, I was able to learn how to administer meds, trim nails (dremel and clippers), wash dogs of all coat types, and properly stimulate dogs, mentally and physically. I will make every effort to ensure that your dog has an enriching stay, providing top care, all while giving your dog an experience that will help build their confidence. I have a deep love for dogs and will give my heart and soul to your pet. Pets are family to me.
