About: I am a true advocate for our four legged babies because they don’t have a voice. So I will go above and beyond for your furry baby. I cared for an older dog that was severely injured from being hit by a car, and needed special care including administration of medication, to experiencing my Roxi going through pregnancy and birth of 5 puppies and the joy raising a puppy which was one of the puppies and his name is Ace. You tell me what you want, and I will follow your expectations. If you have small dogs, Im the perfect fit for you. Dont take your et to these other sitters that provide large backyard, own big dogs themselves and risk bringing in fleas, ticks and possibly parvo from digging and playing outside.i only host 2 dogs a day/night and if you have a special request, you can have a private booking where no other dogs are being cared for during your pet’s stay, so you feel at peace while you are away. Your furry baby will stay inside with me, and be able to roam freely around the house, i have doggy steps to all furniture, including the bed! I have monitors that allow me to monitor your pet at all times 24/7. My home is clean, up to date with pest control, my pets are current on vaccines including influenza and covid . Im willing to accommodate for you to enjoy your time away from your pet. This includes you coming FROM out of town to events such as funerals, weddings, family gatherings where there might be other not-so-friendly pets. Provide your yourself and your pet peace of mind and a safe place to stay for these types of events. Even if its just a few hours to go out with friends. Don’t leave them home alone. They can come play with us! Very friendly, love to play. Although i have my prefences listed, there are exceptions do don’t hesitate to contact me and let’s talk. Rescue pets and puppies are welcomed. I ask that you bring their favorite toy, the bed they sleep in and please please bring the food they normally eat. They most likely will experience separation anxiety which possibly can cause upset stomach and diarrhea which goes away after 72 hours, so changing the food they eat during their stay will worsen it. All pets eat during meal time and separate locations throughout the house until they are finished. At any time, if something occurs that I feel as a pet owner I would want to know right away about it, I do not hesitate to contact you so that you are aware of the situation. Some examples: your pet jumped off the sofa and landed on their jaw, your pet started vomiting, your pet is showing symptoms of distress, your pet was play fighting with another pet and ended up with a laceration on its skin, are some examples that could happen during your pets stay here. I take it very serious when your pet’s behavior has changed suddenly. None of these have taken place while under my care, But understand, I don’t hesitate to contact you Note: Puppy rates override additional pet rates And if your pet isn't potty trained, please bring pee pads. Notify me if your four legged friend is not fully potty trained. It doesn’t change anything. I just want to be prepared. Im certified at administering CPR to your pet and currently taking courses to be a certified boarder with the American Kennel Club. My pets are my kids and i will treat yours the same way. Loving, cuddling, back massaging, tummy rubbing are all free here!!!🐾🥰❤️🐕🦺🦮🐩🐕🐈🐈⬛🏼 From September to December and January to June, I board and doggie daycare on weekends and ALL HOLIDAYS. I’m flexible on the drop off/pickup time but understand if its after the time of drop off, it will be considered at the extended rate for going pass that time. For example, if you dropped your furry baby off at 3 PM on Friday and you don’t pick your pet up until 8 PM on Sunday you will get charged an extended rate for the time from 3- 8 pm. If you need to modify any thing regarding the times, please notify me at the time of the booking so that we are on the same page and I can make accommodations to meet your needs. Thank you. Just need 48 hour. notice. Beginning August 14th I'm only available after 3:30 pm daily for drop ins, walks, Fridays after 3:30-sundays at 7pm. and weekends, . Im willing to fit in drop ins, dog walks anytime. Boarding i prefer in my home due to my own friendly dogs i care for. My goal in caring for your pet is to provide an environment that is conducive to their comfort and happiness while you’re away. Your rules will be followed, whether it be in your home or in my home. I live alone and, therefore, my focus and attention is all on your pet. I only care for dogs in my home. I provide plenty of photos and videos for you throughout their stay, i can FaceTime for you to interact with them where you can also talk to your pet for reassurance when your dog is to be cared by me in My Home. Currently Kern county dog parks are having an increase number of parvo cases, so i will not walk the Dogs there. I have a quiet, mature, cul-de-sac that I live in and provide daily walks up and down my street and they do not interact with any other animals. Potty breaks are provided using my medium size. backyard where they can run around i and stretch their legs, but then we come back in and do your activities inside my I, believe in positive reinforcement. I WILL NOT TOLERATE HURTING PETS FOR THEIR BAD BEHAVIOR. 🐾🌸 reward system is the best to train your pet.
“I had the best first experience using the Rover app all because of Kayla. Her calm demeanor made my dogs and cats trust her almost immediately. She was incredibly thorough through the first initial visit and knew all the right questions to ask if I missed something. I will absolutely be rebooking with her. Incredibly happy that I have a trustworthy babysitter because that’s what she is. An incredible babysitter for my fur babies!”
“Crystal was great! I travelled for a while and she visited my cats. She great at contacting me, sending pics, placing food, water and petting them. Came back after several days and they seem very happy ? thanks Crystal”
“Kelsey has been an animal lover since she was a small child. She grew up with farm animals as well as dogs and cats. She has worked with dogs and cats in several capacities. For almost 3 years she worked as a Veterinary Assistant where she was responsible for bathing, walking, medicating, comforting and caring for the animals in the kennels. She earned a Veterinary Assistant Certification during her senior year of high school. She also worked for 3 years caring for show dogs. Kelsey is gentle, loving and very passionate with animals. She is trained on what to do in an emergency and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a kind and trustworthy animal caretaker.”

About: I've been looking after pets since I was 12, from neighbor to family pets. My responsibilities have extended from walking the pets to sleeping next to them so they'll feel at ease. Puppies and cats have been trusted upon me and I can confidently say that I'm a puppy expert. I've worked with many different dogs and I've loved every single one. Anything that your pup or kitty requires will be my top priority. I am currently a stay at home wife, so for pups that need to be under constant watch there is no problem, I'll be available. This also goes for senior dogs who may have to be let outside more often. I'm fully available to the needs of your pets! My way of caring for a pet will always be based off of what you as an owner tells me needs to be done. My goal is to try to keep your pert as comfortable as possible while their mom and dad are gone. I'm a stickler for rules and every pet owner has a certain way of doing things with their pet and I will abide by that routine to keep your pet stress free.
About: I’ve had multiple types of animals from the moment I was born, and been a die hard animal lover ever since. I am a certified veterinary assistant and I currently work at a pet resort, so I’m experienced and knowledgeable in how to take care of all your pets needs! I currently have two cats, a 13 year old female who’s my cranky old lady and a 2 year old male who’s super rambunctious! I also have two German shepherds, so I can very easily handle large breed dogs. I can gladly walk, care for, and play with all your fur babies! Every animal I come across gets the same love and attention I’d give my own babies. Being in the veterinary medicine field I have plenty of hands on experience when it comes to caring for and handling all types of animals and all their specials needs. I am able to give oral and injectable medications no problem, follow any specific diet regimes, as well as handle any food aggressive dog with ease. I do work at a pet resort currently, but my schedule is still pretty flexible. I do not drive but still easily get around and always arrive anywhere I need to be promptly and on time. If you live outside of my service radius I reserve the right to charge and extra fee (up to $50) for transportation to your home. Thank you for your understanding! My shepherds are indoor/outdoor, they are crate trained, house broken, and get lots of play time and exercise in the form of walks and outside games of fetch. My cats are indoor only, litterbox trained, and get lots of love and playtime. All the animals also get spoiled with treats and tons of attention! I’d treat your animals the same I would my own, make sure they’re happy and healthy and taken care of. Being trained in the veterinary medicine field, I can also safely take care of any special medical needs or restrictions your fur babies may have as well.
“Adriana's wonderful with furbabies, they love her as much as she loves them, also she knows a ton of stuff about dogs. She's a bit shy with people but super friendly with animals, and she's a nice and responsible young lady too. I'd trust Adriana with my furbabies anyday!”
“Olivia was a wonderful help to our family! I couldn’t emphasize that enough! We went on vacation for 3 weeks and she took such good care of our home as well as our two dogs and three cats. I was so appreciative for her effort and communication with us, and she even sent me videos just to make sure that we knew that our fur babies were safe and loved. I am definitely going to be booking her again and hope this helps anyone else considering her for housesitting boarding or pet sitting!”
About: I have done pet sitting for friends and family. Comfortable with how to handle large and small pets. I am familiar with bathing, feeding, walking, and playing with pets. I currently work part time at a frozen yogurt store and am active in volunteer work at my church. The busy parts of my day are usually noon-night but I would love to pet sit during the early mornings-noon. I am very good with following instructions and any special needs a pet may have. I am also more than happy to clean any mess created as I wouldn’t want to leave anyones house a mess. Most importantly I pour 100% of my love into every pet I care for.
“Sidney took wonderful care of Jethro during her drop in visits from Aug 18-21. She is a trustworthy person and loved our coonhound as her own. Sidney provided up to date photos and videos at each visits. Thank you so much Sidney. We recommend Sidney as your next petsitter.”
“McKenna did an excellent job watching our pups while we were away. Highly recommend!”
“Absolutely amazing! Christina was so amazing through this whole experience. Very professional, gave wonderful updates of my babies, and sent many photos. This was my first experience using this app and having someone In my home I didn’t personally know. This was such a great experience I will def be using it again and reaching out to Christina in the future.”
“Alejandro has had 3 dogs. His first, Valo, was a border collie mix with a great temperament. He trained Valo as a puppy, quickly housebreaking him, and teaching basic commands. He's patient with his pets and consistent with training, which is key when teaching all pets anything new. Valo was taught to be patient around kids and protective of his family. Alex now has two smaller breed dogs who he has trained and taught tricks to. He's still as patient as ever with animals, including birds! You can count on him to treat your furry family member as one of his own while in his care.”
“Shelby took great care of my 5 year old cat Clark. I always have a hard time leaving him behind (he can be a little needy), but Shelby kept him company and sent consistent updates to set me at ease!”
