I have passed a background check with Rover.com and I am very reliable and trustworthy! I have many references and testimonials and if you need more I can provide those as well.

I am very patient with dogs and know that every dog has its own personality and its own needs while you are away. That is part of why I love taking care of dogs because you get to see what other dogs are like. I look forward to meeting you and your pets to make sure we are a great fit together. I hope to hear from you soon! Have a wonderful day!

Can I pet your dog?!Stonefield, Fort Wayne, IN

I have 1 dog of my own, a sweet and shy Pomeranian. We love all types of animals. I welcome all kinds of dogs, because I think it is all about your approach. Patience and compassion will go much further with a scared dog than pushing back. I hope to provide your dog with the type of care that allows you to enjoy your time away without worrying about your pet. Rest assured that I will be upfront and honest if I am not able to meet your expectations, rather than neglect your dog and leave them scared and missing you! Dogs are welcome to play with other furry friends, but I also provide them privacy if they need a little space. I can’t wait to meet you and your pet and become fast friends so you can be confident in my services.

Erika's Dog Boarding, Reg. Vet TechFort Wayne, IN

**About me**

I currently am a stay at home Mom looking to make a little extra cash doing what I love! June 2017-December 2017 I worked part time at the Allen County SPCA as the Communtiy Cat Coordinator. Prior to that I was an Animal Control Officer for the city of Fort Wayne which had been my full time job for 7 and a half years. I went to Purdue and graduated in 2009 with my Bachelor's in Veterinary Technology. I have worked in vet's offices and boarding facilities since I was 15 years old. I am now 31 years old, married, with two children of my own, 5 yrs and 3 yr old girls. My husband and I also occasionally foster dogs for a local rescue. We have three dogs, "Murphy" “Bucky” and “Mishka” who are all used to many animals coming and going! Mishka and Bucky are both around a year old and under 15 pounds. They love playmates of all shapes and sizes! Murphy is an older boy who stays out of the way of visitors. We would love to have your pup stay with us!

**About my home/services**

We live in a nice suburban neighborhood on the outskirts of Aboite. Our home is 2 stories with a fenced in backyard. We are very comfortable with any imaginable pet request, ie nail trims, walks, baths, etc. I have clippers I used to shave my dogs but am not professionally trained. If you want your animal body clipped I could do so!

**About my neighborhood**

We are adjacent to the Whitley County line so we are pretty secluded and surrounded by corn fields. We have plenty of parks nearby that we frequently take our kids to play at.

**What to expect**

We can provide plenty of interaction and exercise for your pet! Runs, walks, cuddles, play time, anything your pet wants!

**Special rules or requests**

We are open and flexible to your needs and requests. If you need anything don't hesitate to ask! We are very available on our cell phones and can send pictures and video and even facetime with your pet!

The KiproffsFort Wayne, IN

See what our pups have been up to, and check up on yours! We're on Instagram as @thekiproffs

Hello! I am Kristen and my husband is George. We love dogs of all breeds and ages. We have two dogs of our own, so we understand how hard it is to leave them behind, and how important their care is while you are away! We let our dogs have free roam of our home. Our back yard is fenced in and has shade all day long. My husband and I do work during the week, so your pup does need to be able to be unsupervised or crated for 6 hours. I do ask that dogs in my home be housebroken and up to date on their vaccines. We will have lots of fun, exercise, and attention in the evenings and weekends! Your pup will get a walk in the morning and at night! We allow our dogs on the furniture, and yours are welcome on them as well. There are stairs that go to the second level of our home, but if your dog does not do well with stairs, everything he/she needs is on the 1st floor anyway. We are happy to accommodate any special needs/requests. I am very flexible so I don't mind coming to your home to care for your pet if they are more comfortable in their own environment. I am more than happy to send pictures and updates if requested. I have fostered dogs of all sizes, ages, and breeds for the local animal shelter. I have owned/cared for many other creatures as well. Message me for separate rates for non-dog care.

We want you to be able to enjoy your time away from home, and know that your pet is being loved and cared for.

Feel free to message me with any additional questions!

My home, your dog's 2nd home!!Fort Wayne, IN

I have over 14 years experience with dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds. I have worked with a local Rescue for 14 years as a foster mom and volunteer. While working with this Rescue I have established relationships with multiple veterinarians who would provide you a recommendation of my dog knowledge and experience. I have 3/4 of an acre backyard that is 6ft vinyl privacy fenced, my very own dog park!! I Work from home so your dog(s) will not be alone, they will not only have me but will also have other dogs to play with. Your dog(s) will love coming to my home for either doggie daycare or for boarding. They will receive lots of love, attention and have a great time while in my care. Drop off times are between 7:00am and 5:00pm; Pick up times are also between 7:00am and 5:00pm. If pick up needs to be after 5:00pm, they need to spend another night and picked up the next morning.

Four Paws AwayAuburn, IN

We are located south of Auburn/Garrett & North of Fort Wayne out in the country & own a 17 room underground home on 7.5acres. If your pet is scared or has issues with storms, no need to worry about that when they stay with us! Since our home is underground, your pet will never know or hear a storm as it passes through our area.

We tailor our services to meet the pet owner’s and pet’s needs. We offer a variety of services, please go to the service tab for a list of services & cost. We do have set hours for drop off or pick up, hours for drop off or pick up are any time from 8am to 5pm. Please do note that we do ask for a time for drop off & pick up during booking, if you are 30 minutes late for your drop off time we will turn you away with NO REFUND (only exceptions are accident, flat tire, car trouble which must show proof of these exceptions). We have been stood up on several occasions or waited around for 2+ hours on families to drop off with the excuse of "we are always late for everything", so we have changed our policies as far as drop off / pick up times & being late for drop off. If your pet is used to being with his/her human, we will be happy to have them as “House Guests”.  We do limit the number of pets staying with us each day, so each can get the proper care & love they deserve!! We accept all sizes, all breeds & all special needs pets!!

As a House Guest : all sizes, all breeds and all special needs pets have access to our fenced yards and our whole home. Generally, they like to be wherever I am. Supervised playtime throughout the day. Leash trained dogs are given daily walks (FREE). Our family loves going to local parks for a picnic & a hike/walk when weather permits, would love to include your pet but only with your approval first! There are plenty of comfy pet beds, but you can bring your own if necessary.  We provide treats, pet bowls and LOTS of LOVE, you provide their food, collar and leash.  If allowed, pets may be on the furniture and beds. Our home is "PET FRIENDLY”.  All pets sleep inside at night and they are not left outside without supervision.  We  send email or text updates with photos to you of your pets’s vacations.

Pet Care Is A Family AffairNorth Franke Park, Fort Wayne, IN

My husband, children, and I have been boarding dogs on our home for the past couple of years. We have two dogs of our own and one foster dog. We have hosted dogs that weigh 5lbs, 125lbs, and nearly everything in between! During a typical day, the dogs get up and go outside. Then they eat their breakfast and play with the kids. After the kids go to school, the dogs and I walk and play. When the kids get home from school there are always wagging tales waiting to greet them. In the evenings, the dogs usually hang out in the kitchen while I'm cooking dinner. The dogs get really excited when my husband gets home from work! After dinner, more playtime ensues. At bedtime, we move the dog beds into our bedroom. Sometimes the dogs would rather sleep with one of the kids. My whole family enjoys hosting dogs. They really become part of our extended family

Dogs need a village too!Crestwood Colony, Fort Wayne, IN

Coolest thing about Rover? I literally get to meet the coolest dogs of Fort Wayne. I get to get exercise with your little Yorkie, your "lap dog" Lab, or your teddy bear of a Great Dane while walking them. All dogs are welcome into my home for boarding and daycare. Being greeted with hugs from my 2 kids 4&7 and get cuddled by me and my husband. They get worn out in my giant back yard with my personal dog Bentley (Chow Chow), and any of my Rover dogs that may be here during the same duration of their stay, makes naps nice and easy👌😉. Any medications that are needed, and schedules that need followed will be done because it's best for your doggy (and your) comfort. Comfort and ease, that's the #1 goal in any and all service I provide.
