HOME F/T! Dog-Centric HomeUpper State, Santa Barbara, CA

Greetings; thanks for considering us to take care of your canine companion(s). We are passionate about dogs (ours and yours!) and would welcome the pleasure of your small to medium size dog's company for short or long stays, day care or overnight.

Rates:

Small dogs: $50 each 24-hour day/night, $35/day

Regrettably, we can no longer care for large dogs (over 40lbs) or those who require significant exercise.

We have many years of successful and immensely gratifying dog-care experience with stellar reviews from our wonderful clients. Our home was fully inspected and we were carefully interviewed some years ago and have absolutely loved our dog hosting ever since, getting to know wonderful dogs with the added bonus of meeting some terrific people!

We are retired research librarians from the University of California at Irvine; Joan now home FULL-TIME, Ellen working just 15 hours per week at UCSB, so will give your dog lots of time, attention and affection. We are comfortable with all types of friendly dogs; breed or age. We've even enjoyed hosting puppies from a 10 week old Havanese to a medium size Cavapoo.

We have a completely enclosed back garden with locked gates; Patio, gravel, and walk-on bark surfaces. Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Madison (11) is very sweet tempered and get along well with our canine guests.

We are comfortable administering medication as you direct but do not have experience (yet?) with injections although happy to learn. We strongly prefer to meet dogs and their people in advance to assure human and canine comfort all around, but will consider dispensing with pre-visit if unusual circumstances necessitate.

Thank you for considering me as your trusted sitter! I'm here to care for your best buddy with kindness and over 30 years experience (dog sitting/fostering/professional DOG TRAINING/puppy training). Your dog will feel loved, happy and safe in my care.

Your furry family member will enjoy being showered with lots of attention and one on one time. I’m home full time and w/your pooch all day (I'm not gone for longer then 2-3 hours at a time). Your pup will enjoy a calm, HAPPY & loving environment with potty breaks every 2-3 hours, plenty of attention and lots of walks (if your pooch likes being active). I have a large play area that’s fully enclosed with lots of cool shade as well as plenty of sunshine, space to explore and "SNIFF"! Your pooch will also enjoy lounging on the warm “doggy sunbathing deck”. Every day we go on several on leash simple adventures

Knowing that your best buddy is in experienced and attentive care, will help you enjoy your time away even more.

Fun & Pampered Pups-my specialtySanta Barbara, CA

I would very much enjoy watching your fur kids while you are away. I treat my dogs like they are my kids and would treat yours the same way. We have lots of room to play in a fully fenced yard!

I volunteered for many years as a foster mom for both kittens and dogs for local animal shelters in Iowa. I have worked through Rover, dog-sitting in my home for about 6 years in Iowa. I am happy to provide client references upon request.

I have three pups of my own. Max - a mini-poodle / Havenese mix who is 9 years old, a teddy bear mix, Razzie - 10 yrs old, and Cubby, a Sheltie who is about 11 years old.

Please note: I only take dogs under 30 lbs in my home since my two littles are happier that way. However, if I am coming to your home, I would love to have any size!

I look forward to meeting you and your pups.

Large Home & Yard, Doggy Paradise!santa barbara, CA

I have had dogs all my life and have the experience to know how to properly care for your pets. Because I work from home, I am home full time so I'm able to spend a majority of my day with your pups to ensure they have a great time and get ample exercise!

Because I work from home and do not have a dog of my own I am able to spend a large majority of my time with your dog and would be happy to take them on fun adventures like hikes, walks on the beach, or even to run around in More Mesa whenever I leave the house! Its always nice to have a companion to spend alone time with :) The house I live in is very large with a doggy door to your dogs very own yard where they can pee/poop and play as well!

I have had animals my whole life and absolutely adore them and I know your best friend will be very happy in my care. Reach out to me if you are interested in my services!

***Dogs larger than 50lbs will be an additional $10 each***

I currently live in the Lower Riviera area of Santa Barbara with 1 dog Billie Holiday (12yr old Terrier/Chihuahua mix) rescue. My loves :)

I have a small size fenced in back yard for everyone to hang out and play in. I walk the dogs daily and live very close to the beach(5 min drive)...so I do a lot of beach walks with the dogs, and I also do canyon hikes for the super active dogs.(at owner's discretion). Also, if your dog requires a private walk, I can do that if you let me know. I enjoy playing with them as much as they enjoy playing with me..and I treat everyone that stays as a loving family member. :)

For the safety of all, I only host dogs that I have met on a Meet n Greet, and get along well with other dogs. We normally do not take on more than 3 guest dogs, for overnight hosting so everyone gets full attention, a good nights rest, and TLC. They are all welcome to sleep anywhere in the house.

HOME F/T! Red Carpet ALL the WAY!Goleta, CA

Hi, I am Cheryl! I will be able to provide your dog with the care and attention he deserves while staying with me. While enjoying his/her stay in our home, your special dog will be treated like any of my own precious dogs. I assure you that, on a daily basis, your dog will receive the love and affection he deserves.

Take a look at my photos to check out my home and fully fenced-in yard to see where your dog would be spending his doggy vacation. My home, near Santa Barbara Shores County Park, is right at the trails that will lead to the beach!. My yard is fully fenced with grass and room for play! The price listed is for a 24 hour stay for a dog weighing up to 44 lbs. It would be $38 for a dog weighing over 44 lbs.

Having undergone advanced screening, I have been met face-to-face and my home has been inspected.

About this sitter:

Hi there my name is Cheryl. My dog's name is Honey. I love dogs and I am so happy that I have had the opportunity to be around dogs all my life. I enjoy taking Honey for walks. We have trails that lead right from our house through Santa Barbara Shores County Park right to the beach. It is a lovely 10 minute walk and I am sure your pup will love it as much as Honey and I do!

Why I love dog sitting

I have always been a dog lover. Ever since I can remember I have thought of my canine companions as some of the best friends I have ever had!

About my yard

I have a nice fully fenced-in yard, perfect for soaking up some sunshine and spending a long afternoon playing endless games of tug o' war.

My experience administering medication

Yes, I have no problem administering medication as you tell me to. I cannot, however, administer injections.

Puppy passion!Downtown, Santa Barbara, CA

I have loved dogs ever since I can remember. I'm a graphic designer and my boyfriend is a developer so our schedules are flexible! We both genuinely enjoy spending time with animals. We will go on walks, play, cuddle and keep busy so they are happy and comfortable. If your dog does well off-leash, my favorite thing to do is take them to Douglas Family Preserve. There are hiking trails, fields to frolic in, lots of playmates and beautiful views - all off leash! There is no better feeling in the world to me than seeing the joy on a dog's face and I will go to great lengths to make sure that happens. I communicate closely by email/text with pictures and updates. I know when you're away the best thing in the world is to get a photo of your dog's happy face. :)

Dog parents hoping to lend a hand!Eastside, Santa Barbara, CA

Mom and dad to cocker spaniel Lucy hoping to lend a hand to other dog parents with walking, pet sitting and playing. Lucy's dad Kay is a part time professor at SBCC and LOVES dogs. He and Lucy enjoy their days off walking around the neighborhood, checking out the beach, and learning new tricks. Mom Rebecca works full time during the week, but likes an excuse to get out and go for walks with the loves of her life Lucy and Kay. We are big dog lovers and consider Lucy to be a part of the family. She sleeps in our bed between us, and has done so ever since she was a puppy. Kay did an amazing job training. We believe dogs deserve love and attention, and should be treated with respect and patience.

Home full-time - large fenced yardUpper State, Santa Barbara, CA

My wife and I have fostered many dogs from our local no-kill shelter (DAWG) as well as from someone who specializes in herding dog rescue. We also sit regularly for the dogs of our friends and co-workers. We do not have a dog of our own. I am recently retired and have my days free for walks and hiking local trails. We live near a beach and a park that both allow off-leash dogs (if so desired.) We have a reasonably large fenced-in yard that will contain all but the most agile of jumpers. Your dog will be treated with as much love, care and respect as if he or she belonged to us. We will do everything we can to make sure your dog has a joyful stay with us.
