Im a caring dog lover of all breedsPalmyra, PA

I am a dog owner who loves all breeds of dogs! Over my life I’ve had a Siberian Husky, a Lab, Samoyed, Westies and Dachshunds. Since I can't own them all, I love to host dogs of all shapes and sizes. I’ve loved having many different breeds stay with me and my furbabies, who include my Westie Lily and dachshunds Daisy and Gretl. I have experience with dogs of all ages. I treat my clients and their dogs as my Rover family. I have formed bonds and long-lasting relationships with owners and their dogs through trust and the knowledge that I truly love all the dogs in my care. Because of that trust, I’ve had dogs stay with me for as long as a month. I am 100% committed to the safety of the dogs in my care. I have a large, fenced in yard. I feel a fenced in yard is an important way to keep your dog safe. The dogs get a lot of exercise and fresh air in the safety of my yard WITH ME watching over them. You can feel secure knowing that your pup won’t be running free without the safety of a fence where they could run off or have someone else’s dog from the neighborhood possibly posing a threat. I also use gates in the house so your dog doesn’t have access to a door leading out to a unsecured perimeter.

I am home all day--this is a full-time job for me. The dogs LOVE playing together and I love spending time with dogs so it's a win-win! Your dog will never be left alone outside without my supervision. For those dogs who don't want to play, I can easily separate them but keep them where they can watch all the activity with me. I will give them all the love and attention that I give my own dogs. They will receive non-stop play and cuddle time! Assuring your dog's safety and happiness is always my priority. I will follow your instructions so nobody goes home with habits you'd rather discourage. You can rest assured that your dog's tail will be wagging when you pick them up AND drop them off!

In order to make sure everyone is in a safe environment, I require a copy of your dog's current vaccinations. I suggest the canine flu vaccine. This is not mandatory but I cannot be responsible if you choose not to vaccinate. I will need to know how your dog interacts with other dogs and people--your honesty will help keep everyone safe! I will never crate your dog unless you request it--I have a variety of crate sizes just in case. Please bring your dog's food as keeping your dog on their usual diet is important to keep their stomach settled. I do not believe in over-feeding of treats as this spoils appetites and unsettles stomachs.

I LOVE what I do! Unlike a regular boarding facility, I do not charge for "extras" such as texts, pictures, extra playtime or dispensing meds. I am flexible on drop off and pick up times. Your dog will have the run of my house as long as they are housebroken (accidents happen so no worries).

I hope you've gotten a good feel for the kind of experience your dog will have, but if you have any questions I haven't covered please feel free to contact me! I look forward to meeting you and your dog!!!

I welcome and encourage a meet and greet. Please understand that all meet and greets are outdoors. This will make your dog feel more at ease and give them a positive feeling. I know other sitters do invite you in; however, as I have multiple dogs staying with me it would be very chaotic. I take great care in introducing guests to each other when they come to stay so it will be as stress-free as possible. I also ask that the meet and greet be no longer than 1/2 hour so I can attend to the dogs in my care, who are always my number one priority just as your dog will be!!!

Loving Pet Care-We TransportHarrisburg, PA

I started training dogs semi-professionally 7 years ago, starting with my own, while I was also the assistant barn and animal care manager at a local residential facility for youth. I fostered my first dog when I was 19, and have continued that tradition on/off as able since, focusing on "aggressive" or "difficult" dogs. I have experience working in both a kennel, boarding facility, and daycare, and continued experience in a local veterinary office. I see my own dogs as family members, and treat others as such as well.

My home is set up excellently for multiple dogs, if sociable they can free roam and play with my own pups, one of which is a seasoned foster dad, and if they prefer their own space I can easily close off a section just for them, with private use of our fenced in yard. Our dogs are crate trained, but we do not require other dogs to be. As I work from home, I am available for frequent potty breaks, training, walks along the river, or lounging in our back yard. Is your pup a senior? Special arrangements can be made! Is your dog high drive? Easily bored? I can provide plenty of entertainment either out hiking, or training in obedience, agility, and ground tracking.

We understand being a pet parent is a 24/hr task, its not a 9-5 job, because of this we try to accommodate requests on a 24/hr basis, and are extremely flexible for drop off and pick up times. We simply ask you make us aware of these needs at the time of booking, or keep us informed of any schedule changes as they happen :)

UPDATE: Due to our new location, we now offer transport! We recently relocated to a beautiful 8 acre farm, with a larger home, and more space for the pups in our care to relax and enjoy. We would love to continue serving the Harrisburg/Mechanicsburg area, and remain flexible in our ability to transport pets at little to no cost.

If your dog is reactive, has a history of aggression, please let us know, we are comfortable accommodating these pups, we understand they are your family, and with 10+ years experience, they will be in safe, caring hands.

Friends call me the Dog WhispererHummelstown, PA

Hi, I'm Amber and I found Rover while I was transitioning careers. What started as a holiday stint turned into a regular supplement, allowing me to pursue independent consulting while enjoying a genuine love for pets! Since I work from home, I am blessed with the flexibility to meet last minute requests and the availiability to spend as much time with your pets as needed.

From Sheltie puppies to Great Danes, I have always loved animals more than most people. Coming from a dog family, I watched my Dad as alpha to set boundaries and also spoil our pup as a member of the family. My calm, even demeanor helps to set a tone with all of my charges-- mutual respect and guidance follow.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

During college, I volunteered at the local ASPCA taking care of shelter animals. Then my friend started a dog walking and home pet sitting business 10 years ago and I often jumped in when she needed help throughout the District. I understand the trust and integrity of private home care since some pets are best in their own space. Others prefer to have more constant companionship, so I'm happy to spend time in their space or see how they do with my boy and trek off on adventures. I'm comfortable with dogs of all sizes, ages and attitudes, and I like to bond with them some to understand their demeanor before interacting with any outside influences. Of course I will work within their established routine and the owner's expectations at all times.

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE:

I have raised 3 male shelties, a lady Dane & a husky/pit mix, all with very different personalities! I'm often complimented on my well-behaved boy when we're at the park, or on a walk, or meeting new people and pets because he's very friendly and adaptable, just like his mama. He isn't territorial and he trusts me to set the tone in all situations.

Providing love and care...Mechanicsburg, PA

My husband and I both grew up with dogs, both small breed and large breed. We are dog lovers and are enjoying the time with all the dogs we've met through rover.com. It has been fun to see all of the different dog personalities. We have helped dogs with separation anxiety settle in while staying with us, including sleeping on the sofa with them where they felt comfortable! We have cared for dogs as young as 2 months and as grown as 15 years. We have had active, need to run dogs and the quiet, just prefer to sit and relax dogs. We try to tailor the environment and visit to their needs and personalities.

We have two children ages 9 and 11 who both enjoy when we dog sit. The children are calm and gentle with animals. They respect the animal's boundaries.

We would love to walk, play with, and care for your dog any day of the week!

A Fenced in Yard with Loving OwnersHarrisburg, PA

My wife and I are lifelong dog owners who currently have 2 dogs of our own that we love and spoil almost as much as our two year old son and newborn daughter. We have a huge fenced in backyard for dogs of any size and temperament to run around play in. The fence is a 6 foot tall privacy fence and is easily the best investment we’ve made to date as dog owners. I maintain the grass myself and spray tick repellent to keep our pets safe. We live in a nice quiet neighborhood and get along with our neighbors very well. Either me or my wife are always at home as we work different shifts so the dogs will never be alone except for an hour or so when my wife leaves for work and I grab my son and come back home from work. We have a chihuahua mix and a beagle/dachshund mix who get along very well. We just love dogs and you will not be disappointed by the love and care they will receive while you’re gone.

Your pup's second family!Harrisburg, PA

My wife and I have welcomed dogs into our home since we started with a Pekingese rescue more than twenty years ago. We have experience with dogs of different temperaments and breeds, and we have two of our own right now (along with 2 cats). Our home has a back yard with a 6-foot fence and is large enough for your pup to run laps and enjoy unlimited playtime outside.

If you walk your pup regularly, we can walk them once a day in a quiet neighborhood. We can provide supervision 24 hours a day. Sometimes a dog might take longer to adjust to the new environment so we can provide a separate room in our home to give your pup a quiet, comfortable place to relax when they need it.

We will treat your pup like a member of our family in our pet-friendly, non-smoking home. We try to keep all guest dogs on the same routine they are accustomed to as much as possible.

Thanks for checking us out! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

Love 'Em Like My Own Dog CareNew Cumberland, PA

Taking care of your dog/s is my full-time job and I take it very seriously. Because my own dogs are small, I specialize in canines who weigh less than, or close to, 25 pounds. Your dog/s is treated just like one of my own beloved pets. They sit on my furniture, eat my homemade food, take walks, lazy about my large enclosed front porch and sleep in my bedroom. My rural neighborhood is quiet and my years of experience taking care of my own dogs, as well as rescue dogs, assures you the peace of mind you and your beloved pet/s deserve.

I've been a volunteer and member of Havanese Rescue for 12 years, have fostered 12 wonderful rescue dogs, and placed each in a loving forever home.

For dog owners flying from Harrisburg International Airport (MDT), or Philadelphia, my house is located two minutes from the PA Turnpike, Exit 242-New Cumberland. The trip time to MDT (11.4 miles) is 15 minutes. My home is 10 minutes from downtown Harrisburg, 20 minutes from Hershey, and 40 minutes from Carlisle.

The 24-hour rate is $40/dog. From 2-8 hours past the 24-hour period, the additional charge is $20.00/dog. Any hours past that are charged at the full-day rate.The half-day rate of $30 is for a nine-hour period.

My cancellation policy requires notification equal to that of the stay. Please contact me with any questions.

Homemaker/Mom -Lifelong Dog LoverHarrisburg, PA

I have been a dog owner all my life and love to bond with pets! I also have pet-sitting experience with both large and small breeds. I would be happy to pet-sit in your home, or bring your pet to our fenced yard home. We have a 5 year old friendly male Shih Tzu and 2 caged parakeets. We have a sun room, but your pet would have full-run of our home. I am mom to a 17 year old son and a 6 year old daughter, and am currently home full-time. I would also be happy to come walk your dog if needed. I often hire pet sitters, so I know the security it gives a pet parent to have your baby cared for.

Miss B's Beds, Bones and Belly RubsOld Town, Mechanicsburg, PA

I own a half Maltese/half toy Poodle named Nala. Although I don’t know her exact age, as I rescued her, the vet feels that she turned 1 in October 2016 and is my little pride and joy. She gets lots of cuddles and treats every day!

I am available on most weekends and weekend nights. During the weekdays I work until 4:00 pm and there may be periods of time when your pet will be left alone in the home for 2-5 hours and/or also be periods of time when another adult will be staying with your pet for no more than 3-4 hours, but rest assured! Your pet will be loved and well cared for! Hugs and belly rubs are frequent visitors at my home!

Nala loves company and socialization! I thought this would be a great way for her and I to make new friends!

My home is pet friendly, and includes an enclosed fenced in back yard with lots of room to run.

I prefer a meet and greet prior to watching your pet, but will forgo that in an emergency situation and on a case by case basis.

If you trust your baby with me, they will be treated just like they are mine!

At my home - your pet will have the freedom to relax wherever they want, sleep where they want, cuddle with me and enjoy treats at your direction. I will frequently send pictures and videos via text messaging or email.
