20-Yr Pro, HomeF/T Small-Dog ResortVista, CA

I have over 20 years of professional pet care experience, working at pet hotels, a pet supply retailer, an emergency vet, an animal shelter, a Humane Society, dog training and pet sitting. I have extensive dog, cat, fish, small mammal and bird care, breed and behavior knowledge. I specialize in nutrition and feeding amounts. Please let me know if your dog needs to gain or lose a few pounds, or just needs to become a healthier dog. Pet sitting IS my full-time job! I love dogs (and other animals) so much, I started my Pet Care career right out of high school, starting with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and working at a pet supply retailer. I was the kid that studied the encyclopedia to identify dog breeds.

Caring for dogs in my home is more ideal for me than any other pet care field because it is such a positive situation compared to the sad or stressful situations of vets, animal shelters, etc. Typically pet parents are excited to go on vacation and their pups are excited to have their own vacation or have a fun day of Day Care. Pet sitting is perfect for me because I am home for my 8 and 11-year-old children and I can use all of my Pet Care experience to take care of your furry children. This is perfect for your pup because she gets to practice socializing with kids and other small dogs in a fantastic environment!

Small dogs (25 lbs. or less) can come stay at my home and have their own vacation! I take small dogs only, for their safety and comfort and for our peace of mind. I have a central air conditioner and heater, cozy couches and a dog-handicap ramp for those couch potatoes, as well as a large, fully-fenced yard with lots of grass and hillsides to race around! I have a 7-foot fence with Coyote Rollers on the top to keep coyotes and other critters out and dogs in. I have gopher wire against the fence, dug underneath the ground, to stop diggers. My gates are padlocked. I have baby gates inside and five locks on my front doors. Your pup is safe and secure, but I also put my own tags with my own information on everyone, just in case! While you're away, I will send you plenty of beautiful pictures and videos.

Why I like Rover:

* Rover has Premium Insurance of up to $25,000 (after $500 deductible) to cover vet bills if something happens to a pup at a sitter's home.

* Rover will dispatch people locally to help find a lost dog.

* Rover has a whole database of local sitters as a backup in case your favorite sitter is booked or if a dog is not working out in one sitter's home. They will arrange for the dog to be taken to a new sitter.

* The sitter is paid two days after you pick up.

* You use a card and reserve the spot ahead of time. Rover guarantees it.

* Rover is how I met you and my new furry friends. <3

Experienced Dog Lover and SitterVista, CA

I charge 40 dollars per night for 2 dogs. I also give one free day per week gone. I love dogs and have owned 2 beagles, and currently own a chihuahua (Paco). I house sit at my house or yours if needed. I have a big backyard and have a new fence installed. (seen in picture) and tile throughout most of the house so if they mess up and pee it's not a big deal. The last thing you want to do while away is stress about if your dogs are ok. Your dogs will be treated like they are our own! Even refrigerated water, no tap water here. Many of my client's don't want larger dogs with them so I am now focusing on watching small dogs and the smaller medium dogs.

Discount for long trips:

If trip is more than a week I take off a night or if its 2 weeks 2 nights, etc..

I treat your pup like my own!Oceanside, CA

Hi, I'm Jaana, a stay at home Mom who would love to care for your dog. I have years of experience taking care of friends and neighbors dogs and loving it! I Became DogVacay host 2013 and came over to Rover with the 2017 merger. We are thankful every day for the chance to renew our passion for dogs and share this fellowship with so many dog loving individuals, couples and families. We have met many terrific dogs and wonderful caring people through Rover and DogVacay and take real delight in our canine time!

My home has a large fenced backyard with lots of room to play. Our block in Rancho Del Oro is in a quiet residential neighborhood that is very dog friendly. The animals sleep inside at night in a spot of their preference (floor, their bed, kennel, etc.). I love and enjoy walking and interacting with my furry friends. I take at least two walks a day and plenty play, fetch time out in the large backyard. An exercised dog is a happy one. I make sure your dog stays on schedule with walks, medications, feedings etc.

Our large back yard is a perfect place where your pup will be able to sun bathe or play fetch. We don't have a pup of our own at the moment, so Rover gives us and our 15 year old daughter an opportunity to host and care for other people’s dogs. Most of the time your pup has at least one guest pup to play. We give every guest a lot of attention and treat them as our own.

We love your dog! While you are away they are members of our family.

CPR, First Aid for dogs certified.

Safety is always first priority, can't board non-social dogs or dogs with aggressive tendencies, or dogs with severe anxieties.

Please make sure your dog is flea free and updated on all vaccines prior to their stay. We will need a copy of your dog's immunization records.

We can not accept intact males or unspayed females over 1 year old.

MY NIGHTLY BOARDING RATE COVERS A 24 HR PERIOD FROM THE DROP OFF TIME. Later pickups are available but an additional daycare charge will apply. Long stays exception.

Pickups and drop offs from 8:00am-7:00pm.

If you think we are a perfect fit for your pup I would love to do meet-n-greet.

If my calendar shows no availability, shoot me a message. I still might have a spot open for your pup.

Holiday rates: $50.00 per nigh.

CREAM OF THE CROP COVID19 COMPLIANTCarlsbad, CA

PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO!

100% COVID-19 COMPLIANT, Zoom and FaceTime meet and greets available!

My husband and I live in the Aviara area of south Carlsbad. We are conveniently located less than one mile off of I-5 Poinsettia exit. Unlike many sitters, this is NOT a side-gig for me to make extra money. It's my only gig. My sole focus is caring for your dog and making them happy! My husband (a total dog lover) works at home as well. We have a 5 bedroom home with a secure high fenced yard on a very private double cul-de-sac. Our home is very clean, calm and organized. All guests have their own cubby so there is no mix-up in food or lost belongings. Every guest is fed separately so there is never a squabble over food. I will follow your feeding instructions exactly as you like. You will receive photos and updates and can always text me any time to check how your little one is doing. I respond very promptly. There is always someone here with the dogs. I have been dog sitting for approximately 8 years with Rover.com and have owned and loved dogs all of my life. Your dog will receive lots of playtime and love. My rates are all-inclusive; your dog will receive play group time, private playtime, premium treats with your permission and tuck-in service. No hidden fees for special dietary needs or extra attention. Drop off and Pick up hours are 7 days a week 7 am to 7 pm. I always provide curbside drop off and pick up service for a quick and smooth transition. We strive to provide our guests with the same love and care to which they are accustomed to receiving at home. You pay for a 24 hours period so if you go beyond the 24 hours, an additional charge may be added. No drop off or pick up on major holidays. If your dog is potty trained, does NOT "mark," chew, bark excessively or have major separation anxiety and gets along with other dogs he/she will have a blast here!

Last minute bookings and vacation pups welcome.

Sorry no Pitbulls, Rottweilers or German Shepherds accepted :(

Pet Staycation While Your AwayEncinitas, CA

We have one goal when your dog(s) come to stay with us. To take such good care of your dog that when you come to the door to pick them up “Your Dog Doesn’t Want to Leave”. (No we are not trying to steal your dog’s ;) ). We just try to make their stay with us, as much like a vacation as we can. You can be sure that your dogs are having a great time and in good hands while you are away.

What does a stay at our dog resort like?

• Over 1 acre of 6ft high Fenced in backyard for your pet to play.

• All Dogs Drink Filtered water while staying. (Reverse Osmosis Filtered)

• For the aquatic inclined dogs, we have a pool in the back that they are welcome to use.

• Your dog will get at least 1 hour of play time outside (Fetch, chasing, tug of war…etc.)

• We love to take dogs to the Maggie Houlihan Memorial Dog Park (weather permitting) in Encinitas. The dogs get at least an hour when we go and we try to go daily. We only take dogs that are socialized around other dogs to the park.

• Dogs will have all day in and out access of our home. (Weather permitting) Plenty of sunning/outdoor time for your K-9 companion.

• Your dog will not be left at home for more than a few hours unattended.

• Dogs are allowed on couches and beds. But we try to honor the rules of your home.

• Dogs will get to take walks along the many trails around our home. (there are over 30 miles of trails within a short walking distance).

• Dogs will be tired at the end of the day.

• There will be lots of pictures of your dog in their activities, that you will get daily.

I have had dogs most of my adult life, big ones, small ones and in between. About a year ago both of my black labs passed. They loved to swim and play in the backyard.

I work from home and I am at home most of the time.

Questions I ask of all owners before taking on a guest dog:

1. How social is your dog? How well does your dog get along with other dogs?

2. Is the dog well-mannered on a leash?

3. How is your dog on car rides?

4. How is your dog around kids?

5. Does your dog need any special medications?

6. Where does your dog sleep in your home?

7. Is there anything else that we should know about your dog(s)

Dog Boarding is over a 24 hour period. Additional hours will be charged as Day Care.

Day Care hours of operation are from 7am-7pm.

Half day Day Care is 5 hours- $25

Full day Day Care is 10 hours- $35

Extended Day Care is 12 hours- $45

We do offer to pick-up and drop-off your dog at your home for $5 each way plus $0.75 a mile.

Dog loving family with big backyardCarmel Valley, San Diego, CA

*Please note holiday and additional rates below

Hi! I'm Alix and I am a Rover Premier Sitter! I am home FULL TIME and am a mommy to kids and pets alike! I honestly cannot even pinpoint a specific moment in time that I started loving dogs; I just have ALWAYS loved them! My family consists of four human children and four fur children. My three dogs, Petey, Ruffles and Peanut as well as our cat, Oliver. Trust me they love having new guests to play with! Everyone gets along and our motto is, 'the more the merrier'!

I am willing to travel up to 10 miles from my home to pick up and drop off your pup, for an additional fee. Please feel free to contact me for details or with any questions. I look forward to meeting you and your beloved pup(s)!

As a Rover Premier Sitter I have passed a phone interview and a representative of Rover has come to inspect my home and meet me face to face. Since I am home FULL TIME your dog(s) will rarely be alone. If I must run out for groceries or to pick up the kids, I am gone only briefly.

There is an additional charge of $10 for dogs over 50 pounds and $20 for dogs over 85 pounds.

Rates are for a 24 hour period. Generally 10 am to 10 am the following day.

Extended times are subject to an additional charge.

Boarding for Toy & Teacup DogsRancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA

Dedicated loving care for your small dog in our single story Rancho Penasquitos home. We are located on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood and have a fenced yard for pets to play in.

The Bijou story:

Bijou was a four pound toy poodle and was part of our family for fifteen years. Finding someone to care for Bijou on the rare occasions when we had to travel and could not take him with us was always an issue. As Bijou grew older the problem became worse, he was accustomed to being at home with us and would be traumatized whenever he had to spend time in a kennel. Having a pet sitter check on him during the day was not acceptable because he did not like strangers in his house (we weren’t too keen on it either) and he did not like being alone.

When Bijou passed away we thought about getting another pet but decided we didn’t want to deal with the boarding issue when we had to travel. Then we thought there must be plenty of other small dog owners who have the same temporary pet care problem, and that is how our custom pet care idea was born.

We have been small dog owners (miniature and toy poodles) for more than 50 years. We are keenly aware of the special needs of smaller dogs and are cautious when they are in our care. Your pet will get supervised exercise outside but will be protected from aggressive animals and predators at all times.

About this sitter:

Retired couple with lots of experience with small dogs. Let us pamper your pet while you are away, your pet will appreciate it.

Why I love dog sitting

We both grew up with dogs as pets and have had them for most of our married lives. Our first pet together was Tony, a black miniature poodle that joined our family on Valentine's Day 1963. After Tony we had Danny, a champagne toy poodle who was the childhood pet of our two children. After the children left the nest and Danny passed we had Biojou, a very small apricot toy (teacup) poodle. Bijou enriched our lives for fifteen years before he passed. The reason we have not replaced Bijou is explained in our profile as "the Bijou story".

About my yard

We have a small fenced back yard that is mostly concrete but there is a small flea free artificial grass potty area as well. The yard has plenty of space for smaller dogs to exercise and it is designed to be easily cleaned.

My experience administering medication

Sure but we would prefer to care for well animals and would prefer to only administer maintenance medication. It is not that we are uncomfortable administering medication but more that we are concerned with maintaining a healthy environment for future client's pets.

Pooch PerfectRancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA

Hi, and welcome to Pooch Perfect In San Diego, CA. Our home is located in the High Country West Area of Rancho Bernardo This is your pup's home away from home. They get to enjoy the great outdoors in our large backyard and play tug-of-war with our resident dog, Tyson. Or just relax and soak in the California sun. I offer daily walks and lots of lovin' throughout the day! At the end of the day, after they are completely exhausted, they get to choose which bed and who to snuggle up with for the night! We have 2 boys who I am sure will be fighting over who will get to sleep with your pup tonight! Worried about how your beloved family member is doing? No worries! I will gladly send you daily texts/e-mails with photos on how they are doing and all the fun they are having. There is no place like home but hopefully this will be a close 2nd!

For those dogs who don't like too many dogs around and would rather be the "only" dog, I can accommodate them with a $25 add on fee per night.
