Full-Time Rover Dog NannyCedar Rapids, IA

I have cared for my neighbors and friend's animals for 18 years. I have a mixed breed dog who loves other dogs/cats/& kids. He is my everything. I bond with animals very easily and can't wait to meet your best friend/ family member. During a drop-in visit I would love to check and make sure everything is in order as well as play with and give love to your dog (cat-horse-fish-etc.) Animals are my world so I work for Rover.com as my Full Time job. I am able to be available at all times of the day. My goal is to keep your animal(s) happy, safe and hopefully tired from playing so much! I will respect whichever rules you already have in place for your furry friends. Please remember I am flexible!

A pet friendly family.Cedar Rapids, IA

We are a small family, Husband (Gerald) and Wife (Sarah) team, in a big house with a big yard. No kennels or stalls, just our home. We are an option for you and yours when your furry family member doesn't do well in a kennel environment or there’s no space in a kennel when you need it. Deer and turkey often roam across the property and the neighborhood and we’re three blocks from the cedar trail, where we like to bike and walk with our dog. We don’t have a fenced in back yard at this time but there is a heavy duty stake out and a 30 foot line that we use when we are outside and your family member is outside with us.

We have treats and toys, extra dog beds, blankets so that everyone can feel at home though we encourage you to bring their own toys so that they will be have that familiarity if they need it. We take them for walks, to the dog park, sometimes out to the state parks if we’re feeling like a picnic or a change of pace. An above ground pool in the back so that after those hot walks, they can take a cool down swim - never without us there. Sometimes we start a fire in the fire pit and if they’re allowed a hot dog, we’ll roast some and give them a treat - if they’re not allowed, they can have an approved treat instead. At any given time, either Gerald or Sarah will be caring for your family member at the house or walking them, taking them to the park even.

For the feline family members, we have an enormous cat tree in the corner of our living room with plenty of platform to watch and loom from above, space to roam and laps aplenty to curl up beside. They’ll have their own litter box to themselves as well. We treat your family member, like they’re our own. We provide that premium one on one personalized care for your furry family member that you won’t find in a kennel. It is my privilege to welcome them into our home if you let us.

Same great dogcations that over 200 different dogs, cats, and even rabbits have come to love! Now in a house with a half acre yard! Plenty of room for dogs to run and play, very friendly dog neighborhood. Pick up and drop off included, We are very flexible for last minute pickups. Find out why we have so many regular customers!

I am a nursing student and pharm tech so medications either oral, inhaled, or injected will not be an issue. I do know first aid and CPR but am not certified in dog CPR.

I do require up-to-date Kennel cough and rabies vaccination records for all first time bookings. It's a dog safety issue, so I can't make exceptions. Safety comes first!

Super pet friendly home!Marion, IA

Hi and Hello!

My name is Jessica and my other half (Clint) I have 3 Kiddos and 4 Fur babies four cats ( Minnie our oldest cat, pepper our 3 year old, gizmo our 1.5 year old, and Xena our new baby kitty ) a hedgehog named Tinker and a hamster named Hammy! Clint and I absolutely love animals, he is frequently called the animal whisperer. The girls and I love playing and caring for animals and making sure they fell right at home; even cuddling on the couch with a pup who misses his parents.

We are a super pet friendly home, as we have a hard time turning down rescues. We love all animals big and small and are comfortable taking care of any type of pet. Even caged! We have experience with normal home pets and exotic pets too! They are all just family.

We are available to care for your fur babies while your away almost anytime. Jessica is working towards animal cpr and pup training certificates currently!

I have had dogs my entire life, starting when I was two and got my first dog Maggie, she was the most adorable shih tzu ever. We had Maggie 18 years until she passed as I was going off to college. Along with Maggie we had a rottweiler named Spicy that my parents got when I was 16 and she still lives with my mom shes 14 years old!

I volunteered at the ARL in Des Moines playing with the animals and feeding them when I was in college. I have continued to rescue animals into my adulthood, my four cats were all rescues.

I enjoy long walks and would love to share that with a few new pet friends, we enjoy going to the local dog park so if that is something your pup would like to do I am open to that also to play fetch or just run in an open area.

Your baby is a model for these picsHiawatha, IA

I am a fur momma first and foremost. My two boys are my world. I also have a hedgehog who kicks me on my toes. I work full time monday-friday but am home by 4 most evenings and all day on weekends. I love to be in nature, hiking and taking pictures. So during your stay with me your dog will be a model and you'll get the best of the lot. I grew up raising everything from rabbits to cattle to a ground squirrel once upon a time on a small farm. I love animals and my pibbles most of all. My dream is to be a dog sitter and stay home. I hope you will consider me next time you need a sitter!

Lots of loveSwisher, IA

Hello! My name is Carmel and I'm my mommies silky terrier. I've been with her for three years and I love her so much! She takes me for walks, let's me snuggle on the couch, and even let's me lay under the covers at night. We have so much fun together! Even though my mommy is awesome, I sometimes like to have friends come to play, so my mommy shares her love and attention with the other doggies so I can have a playmate. You should come over. We could play outside, go for car rides, sleep on the couch, and even go for walks. I could even share my sweater and blanket if you get cold. Hope to have a play date soon so you can meet me and my mommy!

You pup will barely miss you!Cedar Rapids, IA

I am a life-long dog owner, who fosters and volunteers for local rescues. My dogs are my family and I will treat yours the same! I have a nice neighborhood for taking walks and a LARGE yard with 6-FOOT PRIVACY FENCE to play in. What sets me apart: I am aware that not all dogs want to make new dog friends all the time, and I have a great set-up to keep dogs separated if needed, both in the house and the yard. I also am able to cater to pups who may not be as mobile as others or as they used to be, by offering ramps to get inside and outside. I look forward to taking care of your babies and their individual needs!

Active and home full-time!Cedar Rapids, IA

I have bred Basset hounds for 3 years. I am more then just a dog lover. I am physically active. Your fur baby will not be bored and may even learn some new tricks. I have always had a dog in my life and provided a forever home. I can also clip nails and would love to give your furry family member a great comb out. I am a stay at home mom and my children are amazing with all animals. We even have a couple turtles. If you have a dog that needs to learn a few doggie manners, I can help with that as well. I practice positive reinforcement. I believe dogs should obey but not out of fear. Your fur baby wants to please you and are here to enrich our lives as we are here to enrich theirs!

Ripper seemed right at home with Heidi and her family. He wasn’t overly exited to see me because he was having too much fun. The whole family obviously loves dogs. I would definitely use Heidi again when I leave town.
