Paws & Cuddle, Play, WalkWest Des Moines, IA

I’m a homeschool mom, I “paws” (pause) our day to cuddle, play, and walk your pet/s.

-My additional dog fee is $3 each per drop-in/walk.

-For boarding and daycare, I only take 1 dog at a time. Must do well with cats. I will take un-spayed/ un-neutered puppies under 1 yr (not unaltered adults).

I love the outdoors, walks, am learning to be healthier, and having a dog friend by my side makes that even more enjoyable (and I get my dog fix in). We normally get a mile in with 30min walks.

I really enjoy animals and helping their caregivers. Walks, assisting in exercise, playtime, cuddles, sick care, car rides/appts etc.

I am a homeschool mom and can work around our day being available for dog walks or pet care. My children (16, 14, and 12yrs old) do not need to be with me if that is preferred for drop-ins or walks.

Please message me with any questions or needs. I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your pet/s. -Paws Cuddle Play Walk (on FB)

Dog Trainer with a Fenced in Yard!Norwalk, IA

I have successfully fostered and boarded dogs both in my home and while working at a professional boarding/training center. I volunteer with local shelters and a regional K9 search and rescue group, and have dog sat for many animals both in my home and at my clients home. Elderly, puppies, and special needs dogs are a specialty of mine as I am experienced with administering medication, physical therapy exercises, and specialty diets.

I have one pup of my own, Winny, who loves to make new friends and invite others to play. We just moved to Norwalk and our fenced in 1/3 acre is perfect for dogs who live in apartments to give them a chance to roam, explore, and play! Looking forward to meeting you!

We love dogs & they love it here!West Des Moines, IA

We have been doggy sitting for friends & family for years. They have their freedom & comfort in my home. My boys are older and enjoy playing with the dogs we take care of. I work from home, for any need they may have, even if it is just a little loving. I have kept dogs that prefer their crates, dogs that prefer their pillow, and dogs that have slept with me or the boys. We have some for a day. Some have stayed 2 weeks. We always make them feel welcome so they do not miss their human parents so much.

Large doggy loving heart!Waukee, IA

If you're looking for that person to love, care and show the most admiration for your 4 legged family members, well you have found her! I love dogs and have been a dog owner since I was a child. Currently I have a pure bred Australian Shepard who keeps my doggy loving heart fluttering. I'm looking to help other families keep their pets entertained and happy while their owners are away. Doggie sitting is the most loving way to do that. I have 2 young children that also love to help make their stay with us a pleasurable one. They love to play in the yard as well as "help" fill water bowls and feed all while being supervised. We love going on walks, having out door play in our big back yard and if allowed by their pet mommies and daddies, maybe some out door water play as well! I have experience with senior dogs, BIG dogs and even special needs and service dogs. You can trust in me that your family member will be cared for as if he or she were my own.

Available Over the Holidays!Merle Hay, Des Moines, IA

Find us on Instagram @dogsitdsm - I grew up with dogs and have had my own Mini Aussie (Lewis) for 4 years and we LOVE playtime and naps. We just recently adopted another Aussie because we love them so much! Lewis and Rosemary are not dominate dogs and get along with pretty much every furry friend. We can play fetch for hours on end. We are very accommodating and love furry friends. You can expect the best when you have me and my husband Isaiah watching your best friend. We have a large fenced in back yard with lots of room for the dogs to run and chase each other. Your dog will be happy to see you when you get back, but will be very worn out by the end of their stay. We can't wait to meet you! *please note all dogs must be able to be kenneled if necessary when we are not home due to damage that has occured*

Large fenced YardUrbandale, IA

I have volunteered at Animal Lifeline of Iowa for over 10 years, taking care of special needs dogs and cats. I am skilled at administering any type of medication. We are a fun loving family with 3 boys, 11,10, and 7 and a new baby. We will treat your fur baby like one of our own. We have over a half acre fenced yard and can provide as much or as little activity as your dog would like. There are also 4 beds that always welcome a furry friend to snuggle with. During the summer months we’d love to take your dog to baseball games. We have a Bernese mountain dog named Tex who loves all dogs but especially small ones. He loves to protect them.

Danielle's Doggie DatesWoodland Heights, Des Moines, IA

Animals are a large part of my fiancé and I's life. We currently have the honor to be the owners of two dogs and two rabbits. Throughout high school and college, I have done house and pet sitting on the side. I just graduated with my Master's degree from Iowa State University's College of Veterinary Medicine and have a lot of experience with a wide range of animals but dogs will always be special to me. My fiancé is currently pursuing his second degree which happens to be fully online. Therefore, he is home full time each day to ensue lots of doggy play time! All of our animals are very spoiled rescues. Aiken and Bensen are very loving and friendly dogs that enjoy trips to the dog park, riding in the car, and runs in the neighborhood or around Gray’s Lake. We are very active and enjoy incorporating our dogs into our active lifestyle. We often take our dogs camping at Saylorville Lake, running at Gray's lake, and exploring many other dog friendly recreational parks. We enjoy being around dogs and can't wait to meet your furry companion!

lisa's review on Nov 28, 2016

Faron had a great time and Holly was very easy to work with regarding drop of times and pick up. I've never left my dog with anyone other than friends so it was a load off my mind to see the pictures and video of Faron having fun with other dogs. Will be using Holly again!

Kate and her family were great with our pup’s first stay away from home. Pics were sent daily and our dog was exhausted by the time she came home :) We could tell our dog had a great time and would love to rebook in the future!

So very happy with the care our little guy received while staying with Brian and his family. I got pictures multiple times a day of Justin participating in their family activities. Justin came home smelling great and very tired. I'll definitely be using Brian for sitting Justin again!
