Loving Luxury Resort AtmosphereTampa, FL

I love all breeds small, medium, big, or super large. I have had many breeds throughout my life - and most of them have been rescues. Animals are my passion and I am active in local events raising awareness and money for animal charities. I live in a one story house with a fenced yard . Your pet will be treated as part of my family and I strive to meet your and their particular needs.

WHY I LOVE DOG SITTING

Have been a dog lover all my life. Always had a dog and cat as a child and since early adulthood have had at least two dogs and two cats as part of my family. I have adopted five rescue dogs over the past years and get the greatest satisfaction knowing that I can make a big difference in their lives.

Meet my pets : Lacey - a special needs 11 yr old mix breed also a rescue and very well behaved. Then there is Harley a 16 year old aussie with special needs that I fostered for 8 months and then adopted. Harley is a kind and gentle soul.

Also meet Clay an 18 year old black short haired declawed male cat. Will hang out or hide in one of his favorite places -- all depending on the doggie guests.

ABOUT MY YARD

My backyard is fenced on both sides and we are waterfront with a raised seawall and security fence. I have a large roofed screened porch which has ample room for play if it is raining. The pets are always supervised while in the yard as I sit

on the deck and watch them making sure all is well. I also have a secured dog run - shaded from sun and rain as well as monitored by cameras - keeping a watchful eye on all activities.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MEDICATION

My pets are all on daily medication in pill form and it has become just a part of our daily routine. My dogs and cat are on monthly preventative and cats are really a challenge when it comes to pills but we get it done without trauma or drama. I also have experience with saline and insulin injections and alphatrac glucometers for monitoring blood levels for diabetic animals.

Ask me about “Petandim” an organic science proven supplement that has turned back the clock on my 18 yr cat. Not only is he acting young again but all symptoms of severe arthritis and associated pain have disappeared after 3 months on the product. My aussie Harley - had a heart murmur and was eventually going to have to take an expensive heart medication to stay alive - after only four months on this amazing supplement (which he eats like a treat) the vet says the murmur is barely there. Helping extend an animal's healthy life cycle is very rewarding and plays into my passion for loving and nurturing animals.

Bella's Big Back YardPalm Harbor, FL

My name is Bella and I'm a 7 year old spayed Shepherd mix. My life did not start out so great with an owner who worked too much and left me when he moved away. But then I was rescued by my family and my luck changed.

My 14 year old boy is kind, caring and gives me treats when I am good. My dad is home with me most of the time. He is very patient and scratches me behind my ears whenever I "ask" him to. My mom works during the day, but I run to her when she walks through the front door. She always makes time to play and snuggle with me before bed.

My family has talked about having other dogs over to play and have sleep overs and that is fine with me! The people in my house have loved animals all their lives and will treat your dogs in the same loving way they treat me. I will be happy to share my big, fenced- in back yard. Your dogs can play tug 'o war with me and watch squirrels.(I try to chase them, but they are way too fast!) My family has reliable transportation if there is an emergency and can give your dogs their medication if they need it. Hope to see you and your fine, furry family members soon!

Well, I'm here for you.....I have been pet sitting for over 3 years now and I absolutely love my job! I have watched puppies, dogs, cats, birds and even pet rats.

Rest assured, your pet will never be put in a cage. I send you daily pictures and updates so you always know how they are doing. I follow their usual feeding and walking schedules. I have a 15 year old son who helps me and will give them lots of love.

I Have plenty of references from our happy & satisfied customers!

Full-time Pet Lover! Available Now!Clearwater, FL

Furbaby moms and dads can rest assured that their furry baby is being well taken care of. I have an unlimited supply of patience and plenty of love to give! I believe there is no such thing as a "bad" dog or cat, just one who needs a little more guidance, a consistent source of affection, and an abundance of patience. I was raised with animals all my life and have never lived without a pet, even while in a dorm in college! Not only do I love dogs, but I love all animals. No matter what kind of pet you have (except spiders, sorry!) I will be happy to care for them, or just give them a cuddle, in your absence. As for why your furbaby will love me....I love to play, I love kisses, I love cuddles, and I love a good conversation or a song if your baby prefers that! Laps and furniture were made for animals to enjoy right along with me. And beds are for puppy piles and purring pillows. Big or little they are all just babies and it would be my greatest joy to be their buddy when you can't be there. A peek into my life.....I am 41 going on 25! I have 1 daughter, 13, and her name is Beverly. I am married to and extremely proud of an active duty United States Coast Guardsman. I have lived all along the east coast and have finally come home! Wild horses couldn't drag me away from here! This is it for me! When visiting my mother, who lives in Maine, I have the unconditional love of her 10 dogs and usually a litter of puppies. When I visit they come running out to greet me before I have even parked my car! I just love giving them all their special hellos, a special greeting from me that are as different as they are. One or 2 of them are always following me everywhere I go and if I stop moving they each pick a leg and start licking, top to bottom! They fight over who gets to sleep with me in my TWIN bed and it always comes down to the matriarch, Boston, the stud muffin, Finn, and whoever else can squeeze in. Recent new puppy additions seem to find an empty pocket of space and slide in to fill it! Bedtime is my favorite time with this gang! But the best is that they all want to be in my lap at the same time. I am truly happiest in the moments spent with all my babies, past and present! Their unconditional love and absolute loyalty has gotten me through some tough times. My dogs, Georgia and Cuda, aren't any different. I can guarantee that they are both where they can see me at all times. My cats, Teddy and Star, and dogs have no concept of personal space! If I leave the room, they follow....even to the bathroom! All 4 pile in and get comfortable! Lol! They are always by my side, under my feet, or blocking the way! Bottom line, nothing your pet might do will ever make me angry, frustrated, or annoyed. They all speak to us differently and I wouldn't change anything.I have a keen eye to any changes in behavior or mood and I will not hesitate to contact you or go straight to the vet! I have an excellent relationship with my vet's office and most of the staff knows me well. They are always willing to answer my questions or offer advice, even over the phone! I will follow your rules and be consistent with any training techniques you use. I know how important it is to keep using the same method of training in their routine. I will send pictures and updates as often as you like. And you can call me, at ANY time (I work 24/7)if you have any concerns or just miss them and need some reassurance and a picture. They are your babies after all. You have put your trust in me to care for them in your absence and I will never let them or you down! I am excited to start this new adventure with all your babies, furry, not furry, scaly, or feathered!

Casa de Canine (House of Dog)Town N Country Alliance, Tampa, FL

I have 35 years of experience raising my own dogs, various breeds and sizes but now only accept small or medium dogs under 40lbs. I have been a dog host for over 6 years. I have a 5-star rating with over 170 reviews. I was a volunteer for 5 years at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. I truly love dogs and all animals. My home is less than 10 minutes from Tampa airport. Please be aware before reading further I have a two-story house your dog MUST be able to climb up and I have FIVE CATS, all used to dogs that would HAVE to pass the cat-friendly test at the Meet & Greet. Unfortunately, I cannot accept any PitBulls/mix or German Shepherds in my home.

My husband and I are both retired so your dog is never alone. We provide 24-hour supervision. We no longer have our own dogs as we enjoy the freedom to travel when we want but we miss doggie breath and dog licks so we host dogs in our home to fill that companionship and love of animals when we are not traveling.

We will tailor a dog plan so he/she has a great vacation while you are gone. If he likes long walks, I use the Walking App to show you the distance and time of the walk. If he likes to swim, I have a large pool for him/her to swim. If your dog likes to cuddle in bed, I love that. I will send you 3-4 videotapes per day for you to view your dog's stay with me as well as still photos. I am familiar with caring for elderly dogs as well as providing medicine. I will work together with you advising me how you would like your dog's day to be.

We will have a Meet & Greet for your dog to meet my FIVE cats. My five cats are used to dogs and have been around them since they were kittens. As long as your dog does not have a PREY instinct they will get along. I will allow curiosity from your dog and a little play chasing my cats as long as your dog knows that cats rule and will get its nose swiped if the play is too rough or if they become aggressive toward my cats. You must understand a cat will protect itself and swipe at a dog if your dogs attempt to injure or enter a cat's space in a threatening manner.

At the Meet and Greet, I want to know ALL your dog's quirks, likes, dislikes so he/she is provided the most fun, safe stay available. Please provide all vet shots and flea verification AND a bordetella shot (kennel cough) at this meeting. Your dog must be neutered and all shots up to date. ALL dogs must have an ID on their collar. ALL dogs must have their nails clipped so they do not come in contact with the concrete on walks or my hardwood floors. If your dog needs a bath before coming, please do so.

I work on a 24 hours shift. If you drop off is 6am then 6am the next day is a 24 hr shift for 28.00 an overnight. Anything over the 24 hr shirt will incur a $10.00 charge every 4 hours over the 24hr shift. So 6am Monday to 10am Tuesday will be $38.00 charge. $28.00 for 6am to 6am the next day and 6am to 10am and an additional 4 hours at $10.00 more.

Your dog is never alone. When I go to the store I tend to take your little dog with me with a blanket and it accompanies me shopping. Of course with your permission. When you return from work or vacation your dog will tell you they had a doggy BLAST at my house.

Angie's Furry Family RetreatOldsmar, FL

I am a compassionate professional with a playful side and I am excited to meet you and your pet! I have been pet sitting on Rover for over 4 years and I will sit dogs, cats, rabbits and most small animals. My experience derives from owning my own pets over the years in addition to pet sitting for friends and family. I have had a pet swan, birds, squirrels, ducks, rabbits, cats and of course dogs! I have some wonderful animal stories that no one would believe if I didn't have the photos to prove it! I seem to have a way with animals and have been called the "pet angel". Prior to my business on Rover I was a volunteer and a foster parent for the Humane Society of Pinellas and I currently foster and volunteer for the Suncoast Animal League. I currently have 2 dogs, rabbits and a squirrel. I completely understand the love pet parents have for their pets and how worrisome it can be to travel without them. PETS ARE FAMILY! You want to know your furry family member is being cared for by a kind individual who you can trust. I am happy to provide any references to put your mind at ease and I welcome the opportunity to meet you and your precious pets! I am confident my smile and warm demeanor will not disappoint. In addition to pet sitting I manage an apartment community M-F and am away from home 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. PLEASE NOTE, I AM UNABLE TO COME HOME FOR A LUNCHTIME POTTY BREAK. However, I can assure you that your pet will get plenty of play time, love and attention in the mornings and evenings before and after my day job. :) If you prefer to board your pet in the comfort of a house rather than a kennel please contact me. In my home your dogs will be free to romp around my fenced yard, take a dip in the pool and relax on the furniture. I also do drop in visits in the morning, evenings and/or weekends if you have cats or small animals that you wish to keep in your home while you travel. I am eager to put your mind at ease and I want to make your travel plans as simple and comfortable as I can. I offer pick up and drop off services and am flexible with drop off and pick up times. I simply want to share my love with other animals while earning an extra income. Contact me to discuss your needs. Let me love your pets while you're away!

Hello, my name is josh and I simply love animals. I worked with my family's dog boarding and grooming shop for over 3 yrs taking care of multiple types of dogs and some cats. I walk my own dogs as well as my boarding dogs daily and occasionally take them to the dog park. I also have two curious little kitties. I understand what it takes to get an animal to trust and I am very patient when first meeting a new dog so they feel welcome.

About this sitter:

Hello, name is josh and am excited for the opportunity to take care of peoples pets. I have been taking care of pets professionally for over a yr now.

Why I love dog sitting

I have always had dogs in my life from the time I was little. Growing up I remember every so often my family adopting a dog in need and trying to find them a good home.In my adult life my family and I ran a dog grooming and boarding shop off 19 near enterprise where the dog water cafe used to be for over 3 yrs. We took care of a variety of dog breeds including Golden Retrievers, Poodles,German Shepards, Cocker and King Charles Spaniels, Boxers, as well as other breeds too numerous to name. I now have been running my own pet sitting business for over a year and have learned even more about pet sitting.

About my yard

I have a backyard, it is about 600 sq ft, personally customized wooden fence about 5 and half feet high with blocks buried below the fence line to stop any diggers. The lawn it is just grassy, flat, and no trees. I also have a 300 sq ft front yard with a garden. I treat my backyard once a week with diatomaceous earth to ward of fleas and spray a light amount of disinfectant regularly to prevent any potential infections. In addition I am expanding my backyard by an additional 250 sq ft or so for a larger area for recreational activities as well, due to be finished by 6/17/14.

My experience administering medication

Yes and I have been successful in getting a variety of dogs to take meds in the past.
