Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
“I dropped my 5 month old puppy off with Samantha and will definitely be bringing her back whenever I’m in town! Samantha sent me updated pictures, tracked everything my puppy did, worked with her on socializing skills and made sure she was having fun. By the time I picked her up she was worn out but so happy! Again she was awesome to work with, and I will be using her any time I’m in the area!”
“Kayla was wonderful with watching my pup for the weekend. She sent photo updates and made sure my pup felt right at home. 10/10 would rebook and recommend to others! Most of all she is every well understanding and easy to work with. Stress free all round. And my pup truly love staying with her and her pup. Great sitter. Ten star General”
“EXCELLENT!! I have two medium-small dogs that loved being with Amethyst and her dogs. Her backyard is huge, my boys got to run around all day, and her huskies are extremely easy to get along with. My boys were tired out by the end of the day which is not always the case with daycares. Also, I was sent photos, updates, and videos regularly. A pet owners dream to get regular updates. I HIGHLY recommend Amethyst as a dog caretaker!”
“Emily and her boyfriend took care of my puppy Luna. Luna was happy when she came home and was excited the next morning to go back! I appreciate the love and care they gave my puppy, and if anyone is looking for flexibility, a convenient location (downtown), and people that will love and spoil your dog, I recommend!”
“McKenzie and Mike are by far the best sitters I could have asked for. I had a bad experience prior and am so happy to have found them. I knew my puppy was in good hands when I dropped him off in the morning. Leaving your pup with someone for 12 hours can be stressful but I knew he was safe! He received lots of play time, went on many walks and of course received tons of snuggles. Definitely recommend them for doggy daycare!”
“Ky has watched my dog several times throughout the years. She recently joined Rover, but I couldn't recommend her enough. She is very kind and attentive towards my dog, and my dog warmed up to her very quickly. She also has great communication and provides updates on how the stay is going. You can tell she loves doing her job.”
“Kiara is my go to gal when it comes to all my babies. she is so intelligent & goes above & beyond for all her babies & my own. she is constantly taking in foster animals & caring for them like they are her own. she is always exceeding my expectations when she cares for my pets. i get fun, goofy pictures & they are always VERY excited when she comes through the front door. you can tell they adore her.”
“Great communication! I needed to drop my dog off very early in the morning on short notice and Alice took my dog in for the day, no problem! Two thumbs up!!! 5 Star!!’”
“My dog had a great time with Stacey. He’s got some Separation Anxiety but she made him feel very safe and comfortable. She sent great photos to let me see how he was doing. Would definitely recommend.”
“We leave our little guy with Eboni every week. She’s always available when we need her and she does a fantastic job taking care of our puppy. I can’t recommend her enough.”
“First time having my husky with her and she is so tired ! Im happy Priscilla kept me updated on her throughout the day, because I was nervous with this being her first time. Priscilla is so nice and Jojo WILL be back.”
“This was our first time using a daycare setting at a home and our experience with Crystal was great. We felt comfortable leaving Lizee with her for the day. Lizee also hasn't ever been around cats and she did very well with hers, of course she was very curious, I'm sure. She was very active all day and has been sleeping ever since she got home. Amazing day for Lizee. Wonderful visit today!”
“Dana was able to accommodate a last minute request on a Holiday weekend. Very responsive with messages and remained very flexible with drop off and pick up times. Theo and Piper returned home completely exhausted and very content! They enjoyed their stay! I would definitely recommend Dana to all fur parents!”
Heather & Vincent P.
“I needed a sitter short notice and Heather was very helpful in accommodating my schedule. Jimmy was happy and healthy when I picked him up. If I'm ever in Des Moines again I'll definitely rebook!”
“Rhonda is an outstanding dog sitter as well as a great customer service professional. She's very flexible and accommodating as far as owners' needs in that one can leave a dog for a day, several days or a portion of a day. She makes sure the dog has water, goes outside to exercise and provides a box of doggie toys for your pooch. Rhonda is very laid back as far as the dog's jumping on the furniture or running through the house and seems to treat all dogs like they're her own. My dog was very happy when I picked her up and not anxious to leave, a sure sign she'd been happy and well cared for. We'll use Rhonda again. If you book her, you will not be disappointed!”
“Really appreciate Megan being flexiable”
“Marisa has cared for my two labs a number of times, for days at a time and overnights as well. One of my labs is of older age (90 lbs.) and the other lab has a history of seizures (80 lbs.). All in all, not the easiest dogs to care for with their specific needs and being large dogs. Not only did she help them get plenty of exercise outside and take them for walks throughout the day, but she administered medication and sent plenty of updates so I knew they were in great care. Would highly recommend Marisa for your pet needs!”
“Victoria and her son took great care of my 8 week old puppy. I will definitely go to her again whenever I need someone trusting to take care of my boy!”
“Gizmo is so happy at Alicia’s I didn’t think twice about bringing him back for a day visit.”
