Work From Home Dog LoverDover, DE

I love dogs and enjoy having them around myself and my daughter. We like taking them on walks around the neighborhood or playing with them in the small fenced-in backyard. I work from home so I am home all day and able to cuddle and take them out regularly. I can be available with little notice. I know how hard it is to find a reliable sitter for your dog and you need someone you can trust since our pets are our family. To give you peace of mind you will receive TONS of pictures of your happy pet. I do have 1 huge and 2 small metal crates on hand if needed.

My daughter and I are looking forward to helping you and your family!

I will love your fur baby as my ownDover, DE

I know how hard it is to walk out your door with those big eyes staring at you, and how it's even harder when you have to leave them for days. I have had dogs ever since I was a kid and know these feelings all too well, so let me help out a little and give you some peace of mind that your pup will be well taken care of and exercised while you get a little precious time back to take care of other things. I love taking care of anything that barks, meows, squawks, slithers any anything in between. As my own pets I have had dogs, a rabbit, chickens and a chameleon. I started off by fostering for a local no kill adoption program in Hawaii and then moved on to pet care in my own home and others. I have taken care of 12 week old puppies up to older pups needing special geriatric care. My dog is a family member in my house and I will treat yours no differently. I will be sure to get details from you if there are any behaviors you are working on with your pet to ensure I don't interfere and hopefully you enhance any training you are working on with your pet. I truly take pleasure helping pet owner who care enough to seek out good care for their pets.

* Rover has minimal options for customization of services so if you don't see an option for what you need, contact me and I will find a way to customize the request. I love dogs of all sizes, but my little guy gets intimidated by bigger more rambunctious friends. So although my profile says dogs under 40 lbs, happy to have bigger dogs with calmer demeanors.

***I have started a full time position with regular hours. Good news is I will only be 3 blocks away, so I will come home during my lunch hour to let pups out. I am would still love to host your pup, but they will be alone for a few hours during the day. They will get plenty of walks and exercise so the free hours will be a welcome nap time 😊

Reliable, mature, petcare providerHartly, DE

I have cared for my veterinarian's dogs & cat for 15 years whenever she travels. I founded & run a therapeutic farm where I care for 20 animals.

In 2010 I established my pet-sitting business and have cared for house pets as well as farm animals. I enjoy visiting homes to care for dogs (& other pets), giving owners comfort knowing their beloved furry friends are being well cared for.

I also board potty trained dogs, who are either crate trained or calm & not destructive being left alone in a room for a few hours if I have to leave the house.

I live in Hartly, DE, (15 miles west of Dover). We have a nice spacious farm with lots of room to run.

Wet Noses & Whiskers Welcome !DOVER, DE

I have always had a huge love for animals of all shapes and sizes, and would love nothing more than take care of your furbaby while you're away. With two big dog parks nearby, and a small dog park just behind my home, there will be plenty fun and exercise during their stay.

I am active duty Air Force and live only a few minutes from work. This gives me plenty of time to come home during lunch for walks and potty breaks.

Your dog will be treated like a part of the family and given a cozy bed to sleep in, unless one is provided. I currently have a dog who is up to date on his shots and incredibly friendly and lovable. Because of this, we will only be able to accept dogs who are also dog friendly!

During your absence, you can expect tons of pictures unless asked otherwise. Along with the peace of mind knowing your furbaby is receiving adequate love and care. If there is any issues or concerns regarding your pets stay, such as cost and etcetera, please don’t hesitate to contact me and we can see if we can work something out. :)

Dogs home away from homeDover, DE

We have a large fenced in yard for your dog to run around and play. Our home is on a caldesac so we don't have a lot of traffic. We have plenty of places to walk your dog. I am a school teacher and my husband works from home so someone is home during the day to care for your dog. After school we have children who are excited to walk and play with your dog. Our children are 9, 12 and 13. They are great with dogs. We have owned family dogs in the past and we will care for your dog like he or she is our own. We would like you to bring any toys or comforts from home so your dog feels comfortable. We'd also be happy to provide pictures or video of your dogs stay. We would like your dog to be up to date on shots and flea free. We look forward to meeting you and your pet. Feel free to contact if you have any questions.

Huge park in walking distance!Magnolia, DE

All my life I have had dogs ranging from chihuahuas to mastiffs. So no matter the breed I am comfortable with the size. We have two dogs of our own, they are very spoiled, but well behaved. If you decided to intrust us with your fur babies, just know they will be in great hands. Our house is plenty big to run around in too. So if it happens to be bad weather they will still get exercise. My husband and I are on different shifts so someone will be at the house pretty much at all times. Also if your pet has dieatary restrictions or needs to take medication, I am comfortable with administering and following strict dietary rules. Thank you for choosing me.

Pet-lover with flexible scheduleDover, DE

I grew up on a small farm and have had years of experience taking care of my own pets and some experience taking care of others'. I love all breeds of dogs and cats and have a flexible schedule that will allow me to best fit your pets' needs. I am also active and like the outdoors, so I can keep up with even the most energetic dog! My home is smoke-free, my yard is fenced in and I live near several walking trails. I do have a kitten that is indoor only, so it is best that your pet be cat-friendly if staying with me. I also recently adopted a 1 year old pit/lab mix, who is dog friendly but energetic. I will gladly meet any pet prior to working with them and I will love each pet as my own!

We have a big fenced in yardDover, DE

I love the out doors. We have a big fenced in yard, and neighborhood is very peaceful. We also have other playful dogs who are very friendly to get along with. Our area is nice and beautiful and quiet. I have been trianing dogs since I was 10 years old, they usually love me. I’m usually available during the weekday after 4 p.m. and the weekends after 2 p.m. I love to exercise and I find the best way of doing that is going on walks with my dogs. I have two dogs who are very playful and friendly, they love other dogs and people. I love playing with animals, it brings joy to my heart when I am around animals. If you choose for me to take care of your precious dog, you will not regret it!

Shelby loves going to Lisa's. Shelby typically has anxiety when going to a sitter or being away from me; but when she goes to Lisa's she comes back quiet and content. Lisa is accommodating to my ever-changing schedule and treats Shelby like a princess.
