Doggy Day Care in Columbia, Bellingham, WA
Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of all breeds from Chihuahuas to Pitbulls since I was 14. Neighbors and friends have relied on me to walk, feed, and bathe their pets. Their dogs always leave happy and tired from a full day of adventures!! I am available 24/7 and on call. If you have an emergency in the middle of the night I am the one to call to take care of your animals while you’re gone. I only take care of pets at my home. I like to let the dog(s) socialize and become familiar with one another before I take them outside. I'll keep them leashed the entire time we are outside unless you allow me to take your dog to a unleashed dog park.
“Gracie was great! I picked Sawyer up from daycare at 10PM, which I think kept her up later than she would have like-I really needed that, and I appreciate how accommodating she was. When I picked him up, Sawyer was very happy and tired, so I know he had an awesome day with Gracie! I would have liked to see her setup a bit more, maybe even just with more pictures- it sounds like there's lots of dogs in a barn with playtime in a pasture area, but other than that, I have no idea what Sawyer did all day. Gracie is clearly very qualified and professional, and I would highly recommend. We will be back!”
“Tiffany and her crew were incredible caretakers for our pup. I can't imagine a better experience. Buddy came home tuckered out after lots of exciting adventures, and the photos are beautiful. Thank you. We will definitely be back!”
“Flexible, communicative, and trustworthy!”
“Sophia is the sweetest, most caring, and trustworthy dog walker that I’ve ever used! My dogs can be a bit “skiddish”; but they warmed up to Sophia immediately! Sophia is very reliable and communicative; I highly recommend her!”
“The boys had such a great day with Annashaye! They were so well taken care of and I was so grateful for the flexibility with our busy schedule. Communication was quick and seamless. Thank you so much!!”
“Tami was quick to respond, took pictures throughout the day, and was very friendly. My dog was tired at the end of the day and made some new friends. I recommend using this site for your day care needs ?”
“She was terrific with my baby. I will definitely be using her again.”
“Yvonne took such good care of my pup, she is knowledgeable and super willing to work with his quirks and training needs! She makes sure to give such detailed reports of how they spend their day and she gives him great exercise! She also sends lots of photo updates!”
“So sweet and understanding when i was late to pick up. Remi was pooped when she got home! Will definitely be using jocelyn for dog sitting needs :)”
“Carol Sheppard loves dogs and really cares about them. She would treat other people's dogs just like her own, giving the dogs lots of love and cuddles. I would totally trust Carol and highly recommend her petsitting abilities. She has had dogs throughout her life and understands their needs.”
“Jess is the best! Will be using her services again”
About: I've grown up with farm dogs and had an inside dog throughout college. I love to go for walks, to the park, and give ear scratches and belly rubs. I work from home and can stay with your pet during the day. I have an open schedule and am available on weekdays and weekends. I'm an active person and can walk your dog often! I live in an apartment without a community yard, so walking will be how I provide bathroom breaks and exercise. I don't have any pets so your animal will be my main focus!
“Sydney is a very caring person and that definitely extends to all animals! She has always been responsive and is always there when I need her. I have had her watch my small dog many times and I love seeing how excited my pup gets when she hears that Sydney is coming over. I would definitely recommend her, as no animal ever goes unloved around her :)”
“Molly is the owner of my dog’s sibling so we have had lots of playdates over the years! She is patient and direct with our pups. You won’t be disappointed!”
“Kyle S.will be a responsible and loving caretaker for a pet. He has lived with a dog or a cat from birth through high school and many times was the sole provider of feeding, exercising and providing companionship to our pet. He will be a good choice when looking for someone to care for their pet.”

About: Both my partner and I grew up with dogs and have had a dog of our own for a little more than 2 years. He's a sweet heart, but is reactive towards bikes and likes to herd. We're sensitive to dogs who need a bit more attention on walks and/or are reactive to different environmental triggers. We currently practice stepping off of the trail and rewarding calm behavior. Both my partner and I work from home during the day. Typically, we take a morning, lunch, pre-dinner, and before bed walk. However, if your dog needs more care or attention, we're happy to work with their preferred schedule. We currently have a dog, so we prefer to only bring in dog friendly dogs. For safety, we'll feed the dogs in separate areas and monitor play and body language. Dogs are welcome on our furniture. If needed, we have a separate room the dog can stay in (in the event they need some space).
“Hannah is fantastic. She is great with our older pup, Charlie. She is very responsive and gives updates throughout the day to let you know everything is going great. She is very invested in Charlie’s comfort and goes above and beyond to ensure he’s happy. Her dog, Paddington, is super sweet and a great companion. Highly recommend!”
“Avielle was easy to communicate with and her dog Toby is super friendly and immediately went into play mode with Sprocket. She kept me updated with pictures and text throughout the day and when we picked up Sprocket we was all tuckered out from playing all day. Thanks Avielle, would happily have you watch him again!”
“Willow looked after our two dogs for a few hours on two consecutive days. Communication was great and our boys showed no hesitation when going back to Willow's place the following day. We were lucky to find Willow last minute and will definitely bring our boys back the next time we're in town.”
