We'll Treat Your Dog Like Our Own!Leesburg, VA

Your dog's enjoyment is our top priority! I'm a retired library assistant who has over 15 years of experience as a Collie breeder and show exhibitor. We are conveniently located just 10 minutes west of Leesburg. Our home is on five acres with two fenced yards for supervised play, a large field for leashed walks, plenty of comfy beds for snooze time and jars of homemade treats. Dogs have run of the walk out basement (no steps for puppies or seniors to navigate!) with their own room for slumber parties at night.

I'm available for free "meet and greets" so you can tour your dog's vacation home and I can start a rapport with your pet plus learn your dog's routine. We require a copy of your dog's rabies certificate and ask that your dog wear his rabies tag and dog license while visiting with us. Since we are in the country, we recommend a flea and tick treatment before boarding.

Why I love dog sitting

I've loved dogs all my life! I've had a dog since I was a girl and became a multi-dog household shortly after I got married. My husband and I were Collie breeders and dog show exhibitors, a hobby we enjoyed for over 15 years. We currently have 4 retired show dogs.

Meet my pets

In addition to our own dogs, we have a cat, that generally avoids interacting with visitors. Our dogs enjoy being outside most of the day but always like to interact and play with visitors.

About my yard

We have a large, unfenced field for leashed walks and 2 fenced play yards for supervised, off-leash play. The dogs have their own, private dog park!

Welcome to Gypsy’s HomeFrederick, MD

***** COVID 19 UPDATE *****

We are open and accepting pups, including those coming from the homes of essential workers. We have added the following temporary special provisions to ensure safety during the pandemic: disinfecting and high heat cleaning of all of the toys currently inside the home; disinfecting of all mandatory dog items (medication bottles, etc.), prior to entry and departure; all surfaces are regularly disinfected with disinfectant and/or bleach; efforts to mitigate meet & greet requirements through online screening; and additional contact information exchange for increased peace of mind.

**About me**

From a long line of dog caregivers, my grandmother used to breed and show Shetland Sheepdogs, and my mom used to compete and teach obedience and is now also a well sought after Rover host. I fostered rescued pups until I fell in love with my Gypsy and have parlayed that skill and experience to be put to use through Rover. Simply put, dogs are therapy for me to manage the stress of my high-stress legal career. Gypsy is my only child, and a very loving dog that enjoys playing with other pups. Dog boarding is therapy for Gypsy and myself, as we're both very social.

**About my home/services**

I live in a 4 bedroom single family home with a quarter acre privacy-fenced back yard. There's plenty of indoor and outdoor space for pups to find their preferred spot. I also offer drop off and pick up service of your pup for an additional fee, if it is more convenient than coming to us.

**About my neighborhood**

I'm conveniently located off I-70 west on Braddock Mountain between Frederick and Middletown.

**What to expect**

Dog activities will include lots of loving cuddles, stretching, and running with Gypsy...but be forewarned...she's fast and will keep your pup well entertained. We also have outdoor fetch toys if your pup needs a little additional incentive to exercise. We have plenty of indoor toys and chews for pups to enjoy indoors as well.

**Special rules or requests**

*Pick up and drop off times are from 8am-8pm.

*Please provide your preferred pick up times with your request so that we can confirm our availability with your specific travel needs.

*We ask you to kindly ensure that your inner circle is unavailable to care for your pup during your requested dates PRIOR to scheduling a meet & greet out of respect for our existing clients’ time, as well as yours.

*To ensure the safety of your pup and that of our other clients, rabies and bordatella is required for all daycare and dog boarding clients and a copy of their vet record will be required at or before drop off.

***As Rover’s default is to charge for dog boarding per night, a discounted day care fee of $25, as opposed to our full-priced day care rate of $40, will apply to boarding pups with afternoon or evening pick up times. Please inquire for further details. ***

Three fenced acres. Dog lovers homeLeesburg, VA

I have been taking care of and loving pets for 30 years. I had a German Shepard with degenerative myelopathy that I cared for two years. She could not use her back legs so we bought her a cart. I had another dog that lost her front right leg to bone cancer. We had her in a clinical study at the university of Pennsylvania. We took her every three week to receive a vaccine. There is not much that we will not do for our pets. They are our babies. Our house is set up for our pets. We have three acres out in the country that is fenced so the pets can roam and play. I have had dogs coming to my house for years and for most it is like their second home. When dogs are at my house they are loved and treated like my own. I have worked and trained dogs for 25 years. Two of my dogs were therapy dogs. My profession is pet care and dog walking. Animals are my passion and my life.

I'll love your fur baby for you!!Bunker Hill, WV

I have been a dog mom for over forty years. I have had big dogs, small dogs, and in between dogs. I picked up most of my knowledge about what it takes to have happy pups during my years in the dog show ring and in obedience trials. I am a certified dog trainer, but now that I'm officially "retired" I just want to rescue abandoned and mistreated dogs and give them a happy life. I've been rescuing for close to twenty years, and my greatest joy comes from my rescued Shih Tzu who is now a therapy dog!! I am home all day every day to provide your well behaved fur baby with tons of love and attention. If you are interested in training, I can do that as well. I use only positive reinforcement methods and dogs love to play our "games".

Totally Pawsome GetawaysCharles Town, WV

**About me**

I am the pet and people person, and Mark is the "I like animals more than people" guy. I am a 24-year veteran school teacher who wanted a dog, but couldn't have pets growing up. So I am making up for it as an adult. I've raised a Rottweiler, and all of our German Shepherds, and love the puppy heaven I call home. Mark works in security and has had dogs all of his life. His relationships with his k-9 companions exemplifies the phrase, "man's best friend." He has raised German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, and mixed breeds. Both friends and family know that Mark and I are people they can trust to take special care of their fur babies. My family often refers to me as "the dog whisperer", calling on me with questions, advice, and for house calls to help with behavioral problems. We work opposite schedules, and as a teacher, I'm off on weekends, holidays, and summers so someone can always be home with your fur babies during those times. When I'm working, your fur babies will not be alone for more than 3 hours.

**About my home/services**

We provide 'guilt-free pet owner' pet sitting services! We are nestled in the Shenandoah Valley in Jefferson County on 120 acres of private property in Charles Town, WV, where your fur babies will have plenty of space for fun, exercise and leisure. When outside, your fur babies will be safe in the extra-large fenced in back yard, where we enjoy playtime and relaxation. When inside, your fur babies become part of our family and spend some of their time hanging out with us. With us, you can rest assured that your pups are safe and secure, while having fun, getting exercise, and socialization, without having to leave the property.

**About my neighborhood**

Our home is located 1/2 mile from the gated entrance off of Mount Hammond Lane. Peaceful, private, tranquil, and serene, are descriptors that will come to mind when you drop off and pick up your fur babies. "Neighbors" are 1/2 mile+ away. Your fur babies will truly be on a totally pawesome getaway!

**What to expect**

When your fur babies are with us, they will enjoy unlimited playtime with our well-socialized pack, running and playing fetch in the back "yard", which could be mistaken for a dog park. Pets are permitted on our furniture in our most used room...Daddy's Den turned Doggie's Den, so your fur babies will enjoy cuddles on the couch and less crate time than in traditional boarding facilities. We crate only when necessary for the safety and well-being of our fur babies and yours. Hate that guilty feeling when you leave your pet at a kennel? Leave guilt-free, knowing your fur baby will be well cared for while living it up, and cuddling up at Totally Pawsome Getaways. Our mission is to provide a totally awesome getaway that gives your pet that same "I can't wait to come back here" feeling that you get when it's time to head home from vacation. We'll be sure your fur baby's stay is a vacay. Let's arrange your fur baby's getaway today!

**Special rules or requests**

Our smallest resident fur baby is 40lbs, and the rest are German Shepherds, so while we welcome all dogs, it is great if your smaller breeds are comfortable with larger breeds, but not required. We've hosted breeds from Shih Tzu to Great Dane, 12lbs to 90lbs. We also prefer male dogs to be neutered and do not host females in heat.

In an attempt to streamline our personal schedules we now have drop-off and pick up windows.

Mon - Fri Drop-off Times -6:30pm - 8:30pm

Mon - Fri Pick-up Times - 4:30pm - 6:30pm

Sat - Sun Drop-off Times - 8:00am - 9:30am and 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Sat - Sun Pick-up Times - 11:00am - 12:30pm and 4:30pm - 6:00pm

Please make every attempt to schedule your drop-offs and pick-ups during these times. If a special exception is needed, please ask to see if we can accommodate your schedule. ***Pick up & Drop off service is in Charles Town and Harper’s Ferry only.*** We also ask that you help us make your and all other fur baby's transitions and stays smooth by trying to stick to your scheduled drop-off and pick-up times. We are not a commercial facility with a large staff. While we would like to accommodate everyone's schedule as best we can, it can get hectic when numerous people are making last minute requests to change their pick up or drop off times. We appreciation your understanding and cooperation.

With each visit, we request that you send a message when you are entering the gate to the property, and that you do not enter the outside dog area without one of us present (even if you don't see any dogs). One of us will come out to greet you.

Your dogs home away from home!Round Hill, VA

I am a proud pet parent to a tiny poodle and a German Shepherd puppy. I'm very knowledgeable about animals since I've been in the pet industry for over 15 years. I have instructed people on how to train their dogs and have assisted others with cat behavioral issues. I have left my job as a pet store manager to stay home and take care of my 1st child, aka man cub. So with that being said I would love to take take time and help others with their babies.

Come have a PawDate with us!Martinsburg, WV

My name is Nate and I recently turned six! My Grand-mommy wants to rename me Trouble but I really do try to be a good dog . . . I am a Basenji mix who likes to climb on everything I can find. Mommy buys me a lot of toys, and I love to share them with the friends that come to stay with us. We have lots of tennis balls, stuffed animals, and rope toys. I love playing tug of war!! I will even let you sleep in my dog bed, if it makes you feel better about being away from home. I have like five of dem, so take your pick!! Come stay with me and my Mom, and we’ll make sure that you won’t be homesick!

Hi, my name is Ginger. I am Nate's little sister. I am an Italian Greyhound. Now that is a toy or miniature Greyhound, I am only 10 pounds and I won't get any bigger. I am little but I am fast!! Run, Run, fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread girl!! I like to go, go, go!! So if you like to run like the wind come & play with me.

No matter how much we play or what crazy things we try to do, Mom makes sure that we don’t get hurt. She calls it “dog-proofing” and we call it “wow, she really is smarter than us!” Furniture, tables, counter-tops, you name it and we've tried to climb it. Nate have also learned how to stick his paw underneath the laundry-room door in our old apartment and open it but Mommy used a stick to keep it closed. No fun, cause that’s where she hid the trash :-( There’s nothing here that could harm you or me. And guess what else? We have so many toys to share, you don’t even need to bring your own!

We are pretty lucky, because Mom is the best pet parent that could possibly exist. She says she can’t imagine her life without a dog in it. She’s had and loved dogs her entire life. She makes a lot of crafts, like coasters and baby blankets and other stuff that humans like to use. But taking care of dogs is the focus of her life, and there’s nothing she loves more. Yay for you and me!

We just moved to West Virginia. We now live in a really nice house. We have our own backyard!! Ginger ans me really loves it cause we can runs in and outs the backdoor as much as we wants to!! The backyard is fenced in so we play, play, play all day long because Mommy is something called "Retired" and is home with us all day long. :-) Mommy takes lots of “photos” to share because humans like these things called “memories,” and your parents like to see you play wif us. We also go to the Dog Park in town and on hikes and do other ventures! Ginger ans me just loves to have fun! You will too!

Mom knows everything about dogs, and she’s been an owner and pet-sitter for 40 years. She’s seen everything there is to see! She even has a blue ribbon on the wall for something called “Sheep Herding” at Nationals! She knows how to take care of other animals, too--and weI love all the animals who come over, even if they don’t want to play with us. Mom has lived all over the world so she loves helping other people travel while I get to have sleepovers with friends.

Can't own 1 but full of luv 2 giveBrunswick, MD

I have had dogs all my life growing up, and I had a puppy during graduate school. Now I am traveling too much to have my own, but I miss the interactive therapy they provide! I have always just had friends who i looked after their dogs but now I am joining this community to expand my network. I especially love puppies and am very patience with them. I will be doing this with my fiance so we will always be two against 1 for extra safety. I also love cats and would be happy to get a request!

Sammy is also a dog lover, always petting dog when we are walking around. He is especially good at administering medicine if your dog requires. We are an active couple and look forward to hearing how we can help you. Thanks for considering us!

Bill is amazing with Norman and Norman absolutely loves him. We couldn’t be happier leaving Norman in Bill’s care when we have to travel and it is a huge comfort and relief that Norman can stay at his own house and have Bill come to to him. We can’t say enough to good things.
