Doggy Day Care in Cherry Run, Grand Rapids, MI
Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
“I was travelling from Maryland to Grand Rapids for a weekend with our puppy. I waited too long to book for doggie day care, so all the commercial facilities were booked. We had mixed feelings about using Rover, based on our last two experiences, hence were initially not inclined on using the Rover. With no options available; we started contacting folks at Rover without much luck. Thankfully we were able to connect with Evvia, and she took our dog in. Everything happens for a reason, and we were so glad to have found Evvia in Rover. Next time we are in Grad Rapids, we know exactly whom to contact. Based on our past Rover experience, either the Rover family hosting our dog would be very good with communications; but the dog was very hesitant to return back the next day. Or they would not only be bad with communication, but the dog wanted to run out of that place. In both of those instances, their reviews were top notch. Hence, our initial reluctance with Rover. But with Evvia, she was superb with communications, very attentive to details, and a true dog lover. She allowed the dogs to be dogs, let them play hard and have fun, but correct when needed. At the end of the day, she has bathing service available so the dogs can come home and cuddle, and be fast asleep. She sent out the daily report, including the miles walked. The biggest test was what my dog would do the next day; and he pulled me to her house, and then pulled her inside to play. I wish she was in Maryland, close to where we live.”
“Josh and his dogs were very patient with my socially deprived Golden. Obie had a fantastic time and Josh was wonderful with updates and pictures. I now have a trustworthy go-to guy for doggy daycare and when I have to go out of town. HIGHLY recommend!!”
“our pup is very excited to go to Kourtney’s for daycare. Journey does a good job communicating with photos and videos their the day. She’s also super flexible for pick up/drop off.”
“I’ve been having my puppy stay with Daniel and his wife periodically throughout the week for the past month. First and foremost, Daniel is very flexible and understanding of my sometimes unpredictable work schedule. Working in the health field, it’s comforting knowing that Hugo will be taken care of even if my days are longer than expected. There was one instance where I ended up working well into the night and Daniel was able to keep Hugo overnight. A huge help! Second, I enjoy the fact that Hugo is able to play with other dogs and interact with their dog parents throughout the day. I think this gives him good interaction and good socialization to help him as he gets older. Finally, Hugo is always so excited to see Daniel in the morning! This makes me feel like Hugo is having fun and is getting good attention while at doggy daycare. It’s very comforting knowing that Hugo has such a good place to spend his days when I’m at work.”
“What a great afternoon that Rusty had! Walks and snuggles - great communication and pictures! Will be bringing Rusty again!”
Kelsey & Forrest K.
“Kelsey is AMAZING! Frequent updates (pup-dates), daily walks, kept track of food consumption, frequent potty breaks. I cannot thank her enough :)”
“Susan has been a fabulous fit for our pups and our needs. She is a true animal lover, has a big fenced back yard where the dogs can frequently run and play, and she treats each dog like her own. Having my pups stay with Susan is like having them experience a trip to a “grandma’s” house, of sorts. They definitely get loved on!”
“Lynn was an amazing sitter for Archie! We are so fortunate to have found her. She was incredibly flexible with our meet and greet and early dropoff hour. Archie didn’t want to leave her place and was thoroughly exhausted when he got home!”

About: My fiancé and I have both been around animals ever since we were little. I have dealt with many different dog breeds and have been constantly called upon by friend and family to watch their fury friends while they are away. My fiancé and I both work from home so your pet will never be alone. We both enjoy lunch and night walks with our puppy and would be happy to bring yours along. I love all things outdoors so if your puppy loves walking and playing fetch outside I can do that. Also, if you puppy is friendly with other dogs I have a 2 year old sheepadoodle who loves to play with other dogs and go for long walks
About: What sets me apart for other sitters is not just providing services for your dogs, but also provide owners with a deeper understanding of their beloved dog. If you want to know why your puppy or adult dog begins to act out of the normal, please ask away! Most of my local neighbors do anyways 😀 The dogs in the pics are local friends that's stop on in to play and sniff around ! Also know that I understand care get pricey in financially tight times. If Rovers price is a bit high, just ask and I will see what I can do. Example: 1st timers can get a $20 coupon 😉 I have a dog and we stick to a good routine each and every day. I would be doing this full time so expect the same amount of care and attention to your pets each and every day. I have a corner fenced in yard with room to run and play. If they need more space to stretch out and run then we head to a dog park. As with my own dogs I am outside when they are outside. Same would apply to a clients home. For a example If you mention the dog can open the gate, then I'm going to watch for it!
“Ross did a fantastic job watching our golden retriever. He provided lots of phots, updates and allowed me to extended her stay by an extra 90 minutes.”
“Great job watching Lucy!”
Lauren & Jerek P.
“So great and flexible on short notice! Highly recommend!”
“My dog loves it when Megan comes to walk her! She can be a bit skittish but warmed up to her quickly and now looks forward to her visits. Megan is great at communicating and reliable. Your mind will be at ease knowing your pets are in good hands!”
“Amanda is such a great animal person. Her drive and compassion for animals always inspires me. She cares for dogs and cats as if they were her own. She has had dogs and cats around her growing up and plays with them very well. Always wanting to take the dogs on walks and is very responsible when it comes to taking care of them.”
“Lauren has watched our dog and did a wonderful job. Her love for animals and experience with them definitely shows. When I need someone to watch our dog I know he’s in good hands with Lauren.”
“Extremely caring and loving when it comes to any animals. This is my sister and while it may seem like I have an obligation to talk her up, I don’t. She genuinely cares for and loves animals to the end of the earth, and I have personally witnessed her going extremely out of her own way to do above and beyond for any animal directly in her care. Absolute high recommendation, your animal could not be in more loving hands.”
“Jason was great with my little dog Cappy! Would definitely use him again! Thank you!”
“Mark is a phenomenal pet sitter! He keeps Our Bernese Mountain dog, Crosby for weekends and week vacations when we need him. He has a nice fenced in backyard and gives Crosby long walks daily. Highly suggest Mark for caring for your pet!”
