Home away from home!!!!Walton, KY

Hi, my name is Jamie! I have been with rover since 2015 and watching dogs privately since 2013. My husband and I have 5 children who are very hands on and love playing with the pups. We do ask that your dog be good with children as well as other dogs. I work from home, so the pups are rarely left alone. We have a fenced in back yard and dogs are free to run and play as they please. As long as the dogs are not destructive, they are allowed to sleep with us or in the kids rooms at night. We like to take walks with the dogs. I do ask that you let me know ahead of time if your dog walks well on a leash or not, or if they attempt to chase when triggered, so that we can handle that when necessary. We have gotten pretty good about keeping things off the floor however, did you see I have 5 kids! If your pup tends to be a chewer or there is something in particular they like to get a hold of, please let me know so I check extra carefully for things left laying around. If your dog has any anxiety, please let me know. I do not require dogs to be crate trained UNLESS they have anxiety which may cause them to be destructive to the house. (By destructive, I am referring to chewing the walls, doors, trim, chewing furniture, and/or digging at the carpet) If the dog becomes destructive, I will ask for permission to crate, or you will be given the option to have the dog picked up. We will exercise the dogs a lot, especially if they have anxiety. We can help your dog deal with it much better, if we are aware of it. If your dog begins marking, we expect it to an extent when they first come in, as others have already gotten to it. If it continues and I am unable to get it corrected, I will use belly bands. Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to meeting you and your pup.

******PICK UP/DROP OFF******

I ask that you please be respectful of my time. I do my best to be as flexible as possible with everyone and accommodate your drop off/pick up windows. We will set a time that works for both us and I expect people to come at that time. If you're going to be late, please let me know before you are late. When the door is going to be open and I have a new dog coming in, all dogs are secured either in their crates, in the yard or they are gated in the house. I generally put pups up about 10 minutes before you are expected to arrive. I do this for the safety of the dogs as well as to prevent any from running out the door. If you are 15 minutes late and have not let me know, I will schedule you a new time. Just as you would not expect me to keep your pup caged any longer than necessary, I will not do that to the other pups here. Also, sometimes my family schedules dinners with family, or makes plans to see a movie. If we are planning something around your drop off/pick up time, I'll let you know so you can make any necessary arrangements if you are unable to keep your time. My biggest request is just that you communicate with me. Thank you!

Vet Tech who will spoil your pets!Mount Airy, Cincinnati, OH

I would love to bring your fur babies into my home like they were my own! I have three small dogs (under 16lbs.), two friendly Huskies and two cats (all current on vaccines and spayed/neutered and do great with new animals!)

About this sitter:

Hi, my name is Kyei and I love all animals. I am a Veterinary Technician who's enrolled in an online college program, so I am home 100% of the time. I also have experience in obedience training and basic behavior modification. I would love to help you and your trainer in continuing your dog's (or cat's) training routines!

I have a great deal of experience with a variety of animals including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, gerbils, reptiles, livestock and wildlife. I am very flexible and would be very comfortable pet sitting any other animals besides dogs. I would love to come to your home and help with your pups!

Experience:

Veterinary Nurse, dog training, and fostering wild and domestic animals. I worked at an animal hospital in West Chester for 4 years and 3 years at the SPCA. This made me proficient at giving medications, performing all the treatments your own pups receive at your Vet's office, walking dogs of all sizes, and caring for sick animals.

Why I love dog sitting:

I got my very first dog, Midnight, when I was in 1st grade and have been in love with animals ever since. I cannot imagine my life without a house full of dogs and I just don't understand how people live without them! My pets are not just pets, they're family. I love pet sitting because I can enjoy the fun chaos that comes with a house full of dogs without my husband divorcing me :D

Meet my pets:

I have two cats, Sterling and Lynx, who are shy at first, but eventually come downstairs to meet new pups/critters. I also have three small dogs (all under 16 pounds) and two Huskies who absolutely LOVE making new life long playmates!

About my yard:

It's completely fenced in, mostly flat and grassy.

My experience administering medication:

I am comfortable giving all types of medications and treatments. I am a Veterinary Nurse, so all the vaccines, antibiotic injections, dental cleanings, catheter placements, etc., that your own dogs and cats get at their Vet, I performed regularly! All of my animals require medications/supplements and I am also comfortable giving both subcutaneous or intramuscular injections such as Depo, Adequan, allergy, insulin, and vitamin B.

Happy to care for your four legged friend.Northside, Cincinnati, OH

We would love to watch your dog! We are located in Northside and have ample room in our home for your pet to be comfortable. I work from home while my wife works at a local hospital so your dog will be watched virtually 24/7. We love to take walks through the neighborhood or in a nearby park and have a dog park just a short drive from our home. We have both had dogs in our lives and look forward to caring for your furry friend.

Update 6/24/14: I have now taken on part time work that keeps me away from the house M-F for about 4 hours.

Why I love dog sitting

We have been dog lovers through our lives. I had dogs while I was a child and was taught the responsibility of caring for them early. My wife did not get her first dog until she was finished with school and cared for her for 13 years. We have friends and family with busy lives and have been able to step in and help with dog sitting on many occasions.

Meet my pets

We are a mature stable married couple who have watched dogs for friends and family over many years. We do not have any pets in our home at this time so your dog would have all of our attention. We have given our dog medications in the past and would be comfortable doing so for yours as well. Our home has hardwood floors, a flight of stairs to the bedrooms, and a relaxing sunroom. Your dog would be welcome throughout our home. We do not have a fenced yard but we do have a place to play if your dog is comfortable off leash. We will take walks for good exercise if your dog does better on leash. The dog park is a short drive and we would love to play off leash there.

About my yard

We do not have a fenced yard. Our lot is deep but narrow and our garage sits at the back of the property. We have a small yard and the driveway space to play and to take care of business. The front yard is slopped toward the street so it's not the best play space.

Large Fenced Yard ---Home Full-TimeCincinnati, OH

Our home is a place where your pets will be treated like family members and will receive the love and attention that we have always given our own pets. We have had dogs for as long as we've been a family and dogs have been a part of my life since childhood. We have also fostered and cared for many dogs over the years and we are the “go to” people when friends and relatives need a pet sitter. We decided that it just makes sense to offer our home to dogs in need of a temporary home while their owners are on vacation or for other reasons are unable to care for them. Dogs find and make themselves at home at our place and we treat them like they're our own. I don't work outside of the home so I'm home most all the time with the exception of taking and picking our 15 yo son up from school and twice weekly Taekwondo classes in the evening. I'm a registered nurse in addition to having a pretty extensive history caring for pets with special needs including insulin dependent diabetic dogs and those with various other medical needs including postoperative care. We have a large back yard enclosed by a 6 foot privacy fence with lots of room to run and play as well as a park with a lake behind our home which we take the dogs to when the weather is nice. We are literally a hop, skip and a jump to CVG via the Anderson Ferry which is just down the hill from our home which is a great convenience. I know that if I needed someone to care for my pet I would want them to stay at a place like ours.

I love your dogs like my own!Walton, KY

I am a huge dog lover, animal advocate, and volunteer rescuer. Your treasured family members will be treated like my own dogs, spoiled and pampered when they visit. All dogs stay in our home,enjoy our large deck and fenced yard with lots of potty and play breaks and affection, love, and attention. We learn their home routine and preferences and replicate those during their stay here. You are encouraged to come and see my home and meet and greet my dogs. I can also provide references.

About this sitter:

I provide a loving home environment for your treasured dogs, with a large fenced yard, lots of potty breaks, playtime, and extras that no kennel can provide. They only sleep in a crate if that is what they do at home. I seek to replicate their home schedule and environment as closely as possible so their stay here is enjoyable.

Why I love dog sitting

I became a dog lover when I adopted my first dog. A golden retriever I named Tucker. My heart was his, and I have been a huge dog lover ever since. I lost Tucker tragically to a heart condition at only six years old, but he truly changed me in our few years together.

Meet my pets

I have four dogs of my own, they are very dog friendly.

About my yard

We live at the end of a cul de sac street on 3 and a half acres. We fenced a large portion of the yard that is accessible from a large deck that runs across the entire back side of our home. We have doors leading out to the deck as well as french doors leading out from the lower level. Behind our home is a very large, undeveloped farm, we have a creek and many trees. It feels like we are in the country, the back yard is very secure,quiet and pretty, and our street does not get alot of traffic.

My experience administering medication

Yes, I have had to do so with many dogs. I have cared for diabetic dogs, dogs with Addison's disease, Cushing's, and dog's that have had surgery either with me or recently before coming to my home.

4 Years of Professional ExperienceIndependence, KY

I have cared for animals of all types my entire personal life, and have four years experience working in a kennel, as a bather in the grooming salon, and now as a professional dog groomer. Name a dog breed and I've cared for it; from a 4lb chihuahua to a 200lb English mastiff. From an energetic six month old Labrador Retriever puppy, to a 14 year old Maltese. I can bathe, clip nails, do basic training, your standard walk, or simply watch over your dog in my home.

In short, whatever you need, I can provide it; professionally and with a smile. I cater my care to each dog's individual needs and each owner's request. No two dogs are the same, and you deserve a sitter who can assess your needs and deliver.

For clarification, I do have two dogs. However, they are kept two floors above the boarding space in the master bedroom, and will never come in contact with client's dogs. There are two floors and two closed doors separating them. I also have an indoor cat, but he is well socialized with dogs.

Also for clarification, I have crates (54" that fit even Great Danes comfortably) and I have hammock style beds (as modeled by my girls in the photos above) although the beds only fit up to around 60-70 lbs. If you prefer, you may absolutely bring your own bed from home!

I have crates, beds, bowls, and toys! All I need your pet and their food. :)

Please note: it is a requirement that dogs in my care are crate trained. I may choose not to crate based on the dogs size / energy, but being comfortable in cages is a necessity.

Home Full Time! Fenced, Large Yard!Highland Heights, KY

Hello! I am a full time stay at home mom of 3 children under 9 years old and I am a dog lover. We have a young golden retriever named Frankie and recently had to put down our older dog Nugget who we loved dearly. Dogs have always been part of our family.

I have a large fenced in yard (almost an acre!) in Highland Heights with plenty of space for multiple dogs to run around and play. We live 2 minutes off of 471/275 in a convenient location.

I have many years of experience with our own dogs and with pet sitting. Your dog will feel right at home with our loving family. I will follow your requests for your dog including: feeding times, walks, crating, and potty breaks. He or she will be loved and treated like my own precious dog Frankie!

I am very comfortable and experienced giving dogs medicine (oral and eye drops, etc.).

Not only do I offer boarding in my home, but I also offer drop in visits for both dogs and cats, which is a great option for older pets, special needs pets, or pets that do better away from other animals. A drop in visit includes: travel to your home where I will visit your pets for 30 minutes at a time to feed and water and walk them as necessary. They also receive lots of cuddles, too. Please know for drop ins, I require a meet and greet ahead of time so that you and I and your pets can interact and be sure we are a good fit for one another.

In addition to boarding and drop in visits, I provide doggie day care in my home. This is a wonderful option for out of town travelers. I am located about 40 minutes from the Ark Encounter and 20 the Creation Museum. Our home is less than 10 minutes from downtown Cincinnati. If you need doggie daycare just for the day while you visit a local attraction or are in town for business, please contact me.

I am booking boarding now for summer and fall vacations so please consider getting me on your calendar soon! I fill up fast!

I am happy to answer any questions you have. Please contact me with questions and to schedule your dog’s stay with us! Your dog will be right at home with our family.

Dog loverNorwood, OH

I have been a dog lover since I was a very small child. I have a special love for dogs and never met a dog I didn't like. I lost my dog Noah, just about a year prior to signing up on Rover. Noah was two months shy of turning 17 years old and he was with me since he was 6 months old. While I'm not ready to get another dog just yet, I miss him and would love to spend time loving and caring for your furbabies. I would love to walk them, to play with them, give them treats (if they are allowed), and make them feel welcome and loved while you're away. If possible, I will take the time to meet with you and find out the specific needs for your dog before booking a stay.

Perfect pet care for your Pooch!Burlington, KY

I am an outgoing mom that is looking for a fun opportunity to care for your furry friend and loved one in our home while you're away. My husband and I have an 10yr old girl and 12yr old boy, that love dogs as much as we do and this is great way to spend time with more fun loving dogs. We have hard wood and tile floors and a beautifully fenced in back yard as well as a large, open front yard for playing. We live in a nice neighborhood that is great for dog walks. Also, my home is located just minutes from the airport for those from other areas in NKY or Cincinnati. One of the advantages of booking with me, is that I am home with your dog during the day, other than being a mom, this is my full-time job and I make my job and your pooch my priority! I have been working with Rover for six years now and love the company! I have many reviews from great clients that can back up my care and experience. I don't overbook dogs and only keep 1 up to 4 at a time, which is very manageable for me and my family. I look forward to meeting you and your pooch!

About this sitter:

I live in Burlington, KY. I love animals of all kinds and owned dogs all my life. We recently lost our senior beagle and this is a great way for my family and I to experience all breeds of dogs. I always tell our friends our house is kid and dog proof for easy clean up, I just ask that your pooch be potty trained. We'll welcome your pooch into our home as our own, while you're away.

Why I love dog sitting

I've had several breeds of dogs throughout my life and love how different each breed is. I enjoy their unique personality and companionship.

Meet my pets

We adopted a 12 year old Beagle named Sparky and he has lived with us for almost 3 years. He came into our lives unexpectedly and has warmed our hearts. He loves to play with the other dogs and makes them feel at home. He is my travel buddy and likes to go on car rides. He is my shadow and wants to be where I am. I wouldn't trade him for the world.

About my yard

We have a decent sized fenced-in back yard with a large concrete patio and lots of grass where your dog may run. My yard does contain a lot of plants for privacy and enjoyment which are not toxic to dogs. I have a degree in horticulture and know what is safe for pets and what is not. I also keep my yard very clean and safe, no pet waste or choking hazards. There are also plenty of water bowls for them to get a cool drink anytime they are outdoors.

My experience administering medication

I am comfortable giving medication to your animal, if needed, I have several clients that I care for where their dog must receive medication and have done injections as well.
