My name is Stephanie, and I have the experience and care to take care of your animal loved ones. I worked at PetSmart from 2011 - 2018, and I graduated with my degree in Resource Economics from UF. I have multiple references available, and I have lots of friends at the dog park so you know you're getting a quality, trustworthy, and fun sitter for your pets. I have worked with all animals plus I've completed a vet internship in Costa Rica working with pets and farm animals, so I can take care for all types of mammals and more. I prefer to meet with pet parents before finalizing booking to ensure that we are a good fit for one another. Message me with what you're looking for in a pet sitter, and I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have

A Dog-gone Good Time!Micanopy, FL

I love dogs - all breeds and sizes, and though I don't currently have a dog of my own, I will lovingly care for yours. Your dog will enjoy vacationing in my clean and spacious home on 1.5 acres situated near Paynes Prairie Preserve, where the dog-walking is awesome! If your dog is a runner or a (pool) swimmer, then this is the vacation spot for them. In my large, secure backyard, I exercise your pup and ensure it enjoys plenty of activity. If your dog is older or has medical conditions, no worry, I'm a nurse and like them laid-back too. If you're still unsure, read my reviews (I have several repeat customers) and message me, we'll meet & greet! You'll see and be very satisfied!

"Rated #1 Playtime Spot" -DogWeeklyGainesville, FL

Hi! My name is Caroline and I have been pet-sitting with Rover since April 2018. I love welcoming dogs and cats into my home and am committed to providing a fun, positive and safe place for my clients. I have a lot of space and a great backyard for doggies to run around, dig and catch some sun. I enjoy hosting multiple clients and helping dogs make new friends and socialize. However, I only take small to medium-sized dogs to maintain harmony with my small dogs and 3 cats. I am currently a full-time PhD student at UF working from home, so I am able to provide full-time supervision.

Before booking, we will arrange for a meet and greet in my home so we can decide if it will be a good fit. Feel free to contact me with any questions and I look forward to meeting you!

Experienced Vet Tech & Animal LoverGainesville, FL

I am an experienced (I no longer work at a clinic) vet tech who would love to meet and care for your pet! I live in a spacious home with a large fenced in yard that can accommodate many pets for a fun doggy play date weekend or dogo that does best with one-on-one care. I currently do not have a dog of my own and would love to have your pet be my step-puppy while you're away for me to love and care for <3 Not having a dog of my own enables me to focus on pets that do best on a one-on-one basis without the worry of any negative interactions during short or long term stays. :)

Overnight boarding stays are for a 24 hour period. Overnight stays in your home include the night of the booking and the following morning. Stays can be extended as needed - I would love to watch you fur baby for as long as possible!

Medicating Experience:

-Oral Pills & Liquids

-Eye Drops

-Insulin

-Sub Q Fluids

-IM Injections

Please contact me with any pricing or general questions and I will promptly get back in touch with you!

Experienced & Energetic Dog LoverGainesville, FL

I've grown up with dogs all my life and currently care for my own dog. I have a young infant, and his safety is my top priority, especially for those that are requesting to board at my house; for this reason, I do require a meet and greet before taking any dog into my house.

I live within the city limits and am near dog parks and nature parks for walks and play. I have a fenced in backyard, but would not trust it to hold up against dogs that dig to escape.

I am willing to walk up to 2 miles provided there is enough time, and if it is needed. I am also up for a game of fetch or tug-of-war. My dog personally needs a little more mental stimulation and I can work on some tricks (though I promise no great results).

Fun all day long! Full time at homeGainesville, FL

My name is Ana and I’m a huge animal lover. I grew up on a farm in Brazil with 70+ dogs as my dad used to rescue stray dogs around Brazilia. Being around so many animals growing up, I’m comfortable with all breeds and sizes. My house here in Gainesville is on a 2-acre fenced-in yard, with a doggie door, constant access to AC and water. Your pup will have a blast all day fetching ball and frisbees. Your dog can relax whenever he/she wants as well on our new doggie beds in the AC. If your dog is a swimmer, we have a screened-in pool that my dogs love to use (access is limited - only under my watch). My dogs are super friendly and love to play. We can’t wait to meet yours! Your pup will have full access to the house and yard. :)

Flexible schedule and work at homeGainesville, FL

I'm just a poor UF graduate student, looking to make some canine companions and pay some student loans. So really you would be making a charitable contribution by letting me watch your pups, you might even be able to write it off on your taxes (don't quote me on that). Big dogs, little dogs, black dogs, brown dogs, I love them all! Me and my boyfriend are both full time graduate students and do most of our work from home, so study breaks will be filled with snuggles and playtime... and trust me there will be plenty of study breaks. I have experience pet sitting for friends, family, and neighbors, and have a friendly pup of my own who would like nothing more than to have another pup to be bffs with.

Daily dog park outings!Gainesville, FL

Hello!

I am a lifelong dog lover and owner looking to provide some peace of mind for pet owners when they're out of town or have last minute plans.

I currently live in a house with a large fenced in yard. I've got a kiddie pool, splash pad, and sprinkler for playtime!

I also am a regular at the dog park near down town (Tom Petty Park) and know almost everyone who goes! I would love to take your dog to run off some energy and make new friends or just have playtime with Oliver in our yard at home.

Inside we've got tons of toys for endless entertainment as well as multiple dog beds for relaxing. If alone time is needed, there is ample space to create a quiet/safe zone.

** Please note, dogs will be crated if I am not home, NO EXCEPTIONS** I have a large crate and a smaller one so no need to bring one.

I'm comfortable with dogs of any size and age and Oliver adapts well to all types of play and personalities.

When your dog is with me, I guarantee they will have a blast and come home exhausted!

You will get plenty of pictures throughout their stay and a detailed overview of what we did throughout. You can rest assured that they are in good hands :)

****House-Sitting available on a limited case by case basis. Feel free to inquire****
