Free Pickups/Dropoffs During COVIDLos Angeles, CA

My name is Hannah and I've been working with breed-specific rescue groups for the past four years. We maintain the highest quality of safety and hygiene standards. As a "puppy proof" home, we use veterinarian grade cleaning products to minimize bacteria, have enough crates to transport dogs safely in the event of emergencies, and have the required measures in place to keep your dog safe (and happy!).

**Policies**

Meet and Greet Policy:

Meet and greets are required of all boarding and daycare guests. We typically host meet and greets at our home, so that pet owners have a sense of where their pet will be staying. This also gives us the opportunity to discuss their care and determine if it's a good fit on both ends.

Please note, we do host multiple dogs at a time in our home. This includes dogs of both sexes, all ages, and across the size spectrum. For this reason, dogs that are comfortable with other dogs is a MUST.

We do accept unneutered males but do not accept unspayed females past six months of age.

Pick-up and Drop-off Policies:

All drop-offs and pick-ups are by appointment. I do occasionally leave the house for a couple of hours at a time, so please let me know when requesting a booking what pickup and drop-off times work for you so that I can plan accordingly.

Our time frame restrictions are strict. Our neighbors on either side have small children. To be respectful of our community, we will not be able to accommodate requests outside of these hours.

Monday Through Friday Hours

Boarding Pick-up and Drop-off: 7:30am - 9:00pm

Daycare Pick-up and Drop-off: 7:00am - 7:00pm.

On weekends and holidays, we start drop-offs at 8:30 am for both daycare and boarding.

Due to demand, we are no longer accepting new daycare clients. We are happy to make referrals to local sitters, should that be a service you need.

We are happy to work around your dog's specific needs, but we do not have the capability to work with the following dogs:

-Unvaccinated dogs: We must comply with state laws, and this means having access to your dog’s rabies records. Please bring these to your meet and greet or ask your vet to send an electronic copy to me.

*Current titer tests are also acceptable*

-Heavy Barkers: Our neighborhood is mostly young families and older residents. To respect our neighbors' bedtimes and naptimes, we cannot accommodate dogs that are very vocal.

-Aggression: Either towards people or dogs. We cannot accommodate dogs who have aggression towards any particular breed, size, etc.

-Severe separation anxiety: In order to keep a relaxed, social, and safe environment for all of our guest dogs, we cannot accept dogs that have severe separation anxiety, including dogs that are destructive when left alone, snap at other dogs when introduced, etc.

About the "Home Dog"

My dog, Jango Fett, is the result of my failed attempt at "fostering". It was love at first sight, and so Jango found his forever home. Since then, Jango and I have worked with numerous shelters and rescue groups to transport, evaluate temperament, and interview potential adopters for rescue groups. I just finished my Master's degree at USC and work from home. I spend much of my day balancing conference calls and fetch, a really fun life!

Typical Schedule at Jango's House:

-7:00 - Wake up and potty break (yard)

-7:00/7:30 - 10-20 minute walk (boarding dogs only)

-7:30 - Breakfast

-7:30 - 10:30 - Daycare dogs arrive; one-on-one introductions with dogs

-10:30-4:30 - Free play, going indoors and outdoors as weather allows

-4:30-7:30 - Daycare dogs depart

-5:00/7:00 - Dinner (depending on individual feeding schedules)

-8:00/8:30 - 10-20 minute walk (boarding dogs only)

-9:00 - Winding down time

As a dog owner, I know that finding a caretaker that you can trust to provide reliable, safe service can be a real struggle. I work hard to build trust with clients and their pets. This way, each time I provide care, both you and your dog/cat are able to fully relax.

I offer a full spectrum of services to meet the needs of all clients. My home, located in East Los Angeles, houses boarding and daycare services. We have TWO large fenced yards for lots of playtime.

In addition to the premium insurance provided by Rover, I am bonded + insured by a policy from PetCare Insurance that provides extra protection for both your home and your pets. I am more than happy to provide a copy of this policy to my clients for peace of mind. Trust and transparency are my key concerns, and I am looking forward to building wonderful relationships with clients all over Los Angeles.

Send a request to schedule a free, no-obligation Meet & Greet. I'm looking forward to hearing how I can help you and your furry family members.

Echo Bark: A home away from home!Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA

Echo Bark provides the comfort and care of an experienced, loving home with a myriad of playtime activities and outdoorsy fun like hiking the local parks and exploring the neighborhood.

My name's Sylvia. My husband, Ethan, and I are creative freelancers who work mostly from home--he is a musician who records in Los Angeles and tours worldwide, while I'm a freelance writer and a private English tutor.

We rescued two stray pups--a sister and a brother, who we found huddled in the middle of a busy intersection--and since then, they have been part of our loving family. Prior to that, we grew up as children with family dogs and cats and my husband once had a few years experience under his belt as a professional dog walker in Malibu.

Our property is flanked by shady bamboo and brilliant bougainvilleas for those pups who enjoy basking in the dappled shade outdoors.

Among other amenities, we provide our pups filtered water and freshly grown wheat grass. Inside our dog resting room, they can enjoy vaulted ceilings with big windows for adequate ventilation, cool concrete floors and extra bedding/pillows for the overnighters (although it's advisable that you bring your own to introduce familiar smells.) Prior to their stay, we do require that the pups have their flea meds and shots up-to-date.

In addition, we take our dogs on neighborhood strolls. We regularly frequent the newly renovated Echo Park Lake. Hike the dog-friendly paths of Elysian Park and Solana Park, frequent the Historic public staircase--all within walking vicinity of our home.

LIST OF SERVICES:

- Overnight boarding ($43/night)*

- Daycare service ($33/day-up to 10 hrs)*

- Extended daycare ($38/day-over 10 hrs)

-For puppies that are less than 1 yo (daycare is $35 and overnight is $45)

Extra services provided:

- Bathing Sessions ($20)

- We do offer pickup and drop-off transportation for a flat fee ($20 for pickup or drop-off; or $35 for both pickup and drop-off (must be within a 7-8 mi radius from our home)

*For major holidays, rates for overnighters and daycare sessions are $50 due to the heavy demands of the season. They include:

Fourth of July (Jul 4th)

Halloween (Oct 31st)

Thanksgiving (Nov 24th to 27th)

Christmas + New Years combined (from Dec 24th to Jan 1st)

-Next day pick-up for overnighter boarding is usually gratis and we have a flexible policy; however, if the time extends past 1pm then we will charge the regular daycare rate and you have the option of picking your pup up until 7pm. Or an extended daycare rate will be added if pickup is past 7:30pm.

Loving your pets like you do!Cypress, CA

I am a lifelong animal lover as well as Certified Dog Trainer/AKC Evaluator that loves your pets like you do. My home is set up for the comfort of your dog. I am home full time except for the occasional errand. It is my sincere desire to provide a high quality, nurturing and safe environment for your pet. Please check with me on all requests because I get bookings through other venues as well as Rover and my calendar may show availability when I am actually full. I take a limited amount of boarding dogs so as to provide your dog with the best of care. I fill up quickly so booking way ahead of time is best. My care is an extension of what you yourself provide for your pet. I recognize that all dogs are different and cater each pet in my care to meet their individual needs. I am able to accommodate all sizes and breeds together or separate, whatever their comfort level. You should feel confident that your pet will be safe and happy in my care. Your pet will receive individual attention as well as plenty of play with other available dogs. As a partner in your pet's care my desire is to keep lines of communication open at all times as my interaction with you is as important as my interaction with your pet. My goal is to provide your pet with a stellar experience and ensure their desire to return to my care in the future. As a positive trainer I am able to work with individual dogs and help them with any behavior issues you might have concerns with. Your dog(s) become part of my pack and build their self esteem. Please read on to see what a couple of my past clients have said:

"I met Brigitt a couple years ago through the therapy dog program, Pet Prescription Team, that certified our dogs. She has been a life saver with my animals many times!

I have a 22 year old cat in renal failure and she has always stepped in when I have to go out of town. She not only feeds, brushes, and gives him extra love, she also gives him his fluid treatments that he needs every other day!

I also have a new Australian Shepherd puppy and he has been going to her house for day care during my work hours for the last 3 weeks. I am a veterinarian, so having a safe place is essential. Not only is it safe, but Brigitt supplies an enriched, active environment for my busy little guy!!

She is caring and pays attention to all their needs. Brigitt also has extra training in animal behavior and really enjoys interacting with them. I trust her with all my animals and recommend her highly if you are needing pet care."

Carol McLaughlin, DVM

and:

"My dog , Roxy has stayed with Brigitt many times. Brigitt is amazing with dogs! She is calm and caring and seems to sense what the dog needs. My Roxy is completely spoiled when she stays with her! When I am on vacation I can actually relax knowing my "fur-baby" is getting the best of care. When I went on vacation this past summer, Brigitt went and picked up Roxy from my house and brought her to her house for the week. While there, Roxy has access to children, who she loves , other dogs and a big yard, which give her playtime and exercise and Brigitt who literally let Roxy sleep in her bed! Roxy came home fit and well behaved...gotta love that! I have recommended her services to my friends many times. You will not find a more caring "dog-sitter" than Brigitt!"

Team Lee.

Within my reviews you will notice repeat clients which is a testimony in itself. My House of Paws is the pawsitive place for pets!

A Home Away from Home!Central City, Los Angeles, CA

Welcome to my profile! My name is Rebecca. I am a stay at home mom who loves all kinds of animals. I have been sitting through Rover now for about 6 years and have had such a wonderful time getting to know so many doggies and their owners. I am available during Covid19 please contact me if you need assistance!

My small cozy home is perfect for your pups. It has a large yard with a high fence, plenty of shady spots, and lots of room to play. There is a local park that's great for walking dogs. My daughter is a little dog whisper and all the pups love when she gets home from school! I do request that your dogs be good with children.

I offer discounted prices for multiple night stays and monthly work hour daycare. I am available for pickup and drop off services within the local vicinity. I send out photo's daily and a summary of your pup's day. For long stays your pup will always be returning home freshly bathed and brushed. I understand most dogs are on a special diet, and request that the owner provide enough food for the duration of the stay. I am available everyday starting at 6:30 am and almost every major holiday.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Why I love dog sitting

I've had dogs from the time I was a baby until my early 20's. As a kid I can't remember a time when I didn't have at least one dog following me around. To me dogs just give me a feeling of safety and love you can't get anywhere else.

About my yard

I have a large L shaped backyard part is K9 artificial turf and part is concrete. There are trees that provide shade also a large canopy area for additional shade. The entire yard is surrounded in 6 foot fence with a gate that is about 10 foot tall and locked on the inside. Outdoor cameras are installed as well.

My experience administering medication

As long as proper instructions are included I have no problem administering oral or injected medications.

Little Wesley's Happy Hideaway!California Heights, California Heights, Long Beach, CA

Hello!, My name is Mary Sullivan, and I live with my 12 year old rescued Westie Mix, Wesley, in our modest 1938 home in the Cal-Heights Historic District. Our house has a locked and secure front and back yard and garage, and, with pleasure, we do allow our doggie guests on the furniture. All of our doggie guests sleep safely indoors -- never outdoors, at night, with us, in our bedroom.

Wes enjoys the company of all of our doggie guests, especially rescued and adopted doggies! I work mainly from home and have a fairly flexible schedule which allows us to devote specific individual attention to each doggie guest and provide regular walkies. Wes and I have had the pleasure of providing a great deal of pet and house-sitting for various friends and family over the years, in addition to acquiring additional experience in professional pet care while co-owning a traditional bed and breakfast for dogs and cats. We are extremely detail-oriented, conscientious, responsible, and protective of everyone in our care.

Upon request, we offer special discounted rates to pairs of two small doggie guests!, and, discounts on extended stays that are one week or longer. In addition, we offer special discounts to active and retired members of the United States Armed Forces, in thanks for their service. Also, we do not charge an additional fee to walk your doggie(s), as Wes also needs to be walked, and we enjoy the extra company. Nor, do we charge a fee for administering medications, or other special needs.

Please Note: In the interest of the health of your pet, please observe that we do require that we schedule a meet-n-greet before accepting new bookings; a copy of your doggie(s) current vaccination records; that their anti-flea drops/meds are up to date; and that they are wearing their current i.d. tags (even if they are micro-chipped). In addition, we do gladly accept last minute Reservation Requests, however, we really only do so with doggie folks with whom we have already established a solid working relationship.

Thank you very much!, and please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have...

Sincerely,

Mary & Wes
