Skye and Louie's Dog Retreat & CareMosier, OR

I am a natural care taker of people and animals. Before I got Louie and moved to Oregon I helped my friend take jobs pet sitting, usually at people's homes and often overnight. I lived in the city and only had a cat, so I loved spending time with all the dogs. My friend was so good with animals, her business was overflowing, and she taught me a lot about how to be attentive to pets and owners.

I have been a Social Worker for 20 years, so I am very good at hearing what people want and need. That, combined with my access to amazing walks out here in Mosier, my flexible time, and the easy going space out here in the semi-woods, creates a great dog stay environment.

I can take your dog(s) in, or, come to your home..

I have a 13 year-old Blue Heeler, who is well socialized. He hangs well with other animals and people (respectful of cats), and is obsessed with catching frisbees. I can have him visit your dog(s) or he can stay at home if I'm walking or checking on yours. It's flexible and he's flexible. He adjusts to rules for visiting dogs.

We don't have a fenced area. We live in the upper loft of a barn that's in a woodsy valley not far from downtown Mosier. Louie hangs upstairs or downstairs in the shop area of the barn, or outside. He's a herder/frisbee dog, so doesn't really wander away from the group. However, I accommodate your dogs' need, whether he/she needs merely supervision outside, a leash, a toy, etc.

I'd like to talk to people first, at least on the phone, and get a feel for what their pet needs and would like. If there are special needs that I didn't check, talk to me. I'll be clear about any limitations I have.

We'll plan a great stay, visit, or walk!

Full-time dedicated caregiverHood River, OR

Caring for birds, chickens, and sheep, raising puppies, kittens, and small caged animals at all stages of life, I began caring for the pets of family, friends, and neighbors at the age of 11 or 12, and as a professional provider in 2010.

Experienced with fearful and senior animals, they hold a special place in our hearts; we are sensitive to their needs, and encourage according to their ability.

We like being a support to animals and their people and keep you up to date sending notes and photos regularly so you know how we're doing while you're away.

Care in our home is personalized and all-inclusive. We have a large yard for walks and play. For everyone's comfort, care is limited to house-trained, well-mannered dogs, and normally only one family. There may be times where stays overlap.

Guest dogs under 55 pounds receive a bath before going home (larger if given outside in the summer). We request that larger dogs show up clean. Baths are offered during housesitting as well.

In home services include a wellness check even when shy animals hide under the bed. Our goal is to look them in the eye before we leave.

Our little one gets along well with other dogs and cats, and helps out with socialization as needed/requested.

Experienced and confident administering medication - oral, topical, and injectable, reading body language, working in socialization, with injured, post-surgical, special needs pets, and all aspects of pet care.

Loving, patient and reliable careHood River, OR

I am a retired teacher who loves dogs! Your dog will become part of our family during their stay with access to a fenced yard, a neighborhood park, plenty of walks and lots of snuggles. We have a backyard deck and front porches perfect for lounging and watching the world go by. We have one dog of our own, a 12 year old Aussie/Heeler mix. I would be happy to help take care of any dog that gets along well with other dogs. I have experience with many dog personalities and temperaments from volunteering at Austin Pets Alive and Hood River Adopt-A-Dog. My availability is flexible and I am typically home the majority of the day. I will send frequent pictures and updates while you are away. We are able to watch 2 dogs from the same family, but we do tend to only have pets from one family at a time. We will send a link for a brief survey when we receive your boarding request in order to help us get to know your pup better. Also, we ask that visiting pups be comfortable negotiating laminate stairs. Thanks! **Update: I have taken a part-time job, but while I am away, my husband, Brian, who is home full-time, will ensure your dog continues to have an awesome day!

Rest Easy when your dog is with me!Hood River, OR

Hi! I would love the opportunity to care for your dog. I am doing this because I love dogs and have no pets. I live in a large house with a big yard. I prioritize safety over all. Your dog will get undivided attention. I enjoy taking your dog on hikes, walks, or playing in the back yard. I provide frequent feedback via texts or calls to how much your dog is loving life! I can administer oral medication. I am experienced in training dogs to sit, wait, heel, come, and lie down. I have cared for dogs with specific medical conditions requiring intense care and frequent potty breaks throughout the night. Give me the opportunity to care for your loved one! I enjoy hiking, photography, and animal companionship. I work full time Monday - Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with 1 hour breaks between 11 a.m. and 130 p.m. to check in on your dog.

Loving your pet - every minute!Lyle, WA

Your pet will be with me, at my side, the entire time I'm with them: 24/7 loving human interaction! I rarely run errands when caring for animals and plan for their arrival beforehand. Your pet is treated like they are my new best friend (because they are!). I talk to them, watch them for signs that tell me of their needs, and ensure they are well loved. Safety is also top-of-mind when caring for your pet. I take into account your exact directions for your pet and implement them -- you know your pet best!

I started sitting with animals purely out of love; the need to cuddle up and have a buddy. My husband and I agreed to never own pets so that we could travel, and my two children are away at school. Taking care of other people's furry loved ones really fills my heart.

My days are about enjoying the outdoors or running my tea & gift shop in White Salmon Wed-Sat (a very low key place) while freelancing as a copywriter and editor. This allows me a lot of freedom to care for pets, and it keeps me connected with the community. Being that I'm a small business owner, and current Secretary on the White Salmon Arts Council, a lot of people know me in town, and I am a community-focused business owner that desires to be responsible in all that I do.

As an avid hiker/trail runner with a backyard that leads into open land, I am very responsible about keeping dogs safe and near. I can also ensure dogs are only taken to less wild city parks. There is a large back area at our shop for doggies that are less friendly to newcomers, and the park is only one block away. I put a “back soon” sign in my window and off we go for several walks (or a run if they can) a day.

I'm also very knowledgeable about canine/feline physical issues and needs: ticks, onset of sickness, infections, at-home mending of wounds, administering medicine etc. I also live 10 minutes away from a pet hospital.

Pups and Kitties with Different Needs:

If your pet has special needs, I can easily accommodate them with patience and my prior experience with both physical and mental (brain injury) issues.

Is your animal extra energetic? No problem. I’m energetic, too.

Is your pet a bit shy and picky about humans? I’ve worked with them before, and my solution is always going for a walk (with dogs) first thing. It’s amazing how well this works. For cats, I simply sit on the floor and let them come to me. They’re curious and love their control.

There's so much love to share with these sweet beings, and I'm here to help your pet feel as loved and understood as possible.

Very active- at home full time!Hood River, OR

I have raised and trained 5 dogs, personally, including two service dogs (an Australian cattle dog and a husky). I have been a dog sitter for years for friends, family and on rover for years! I'm very active (running, biking, walking, wandering) and am very used to tiring out high energy dogs. I also love practicing and training with puppies. Lower energy dogs are just as great (and even easier for me ;)

I'm just a general animal lover and looking to have some friends to hang out with while working from home (my job is remote, flexible, and very part time). I live in Hood River and prefer to keep sitting/walks pretty local so that I don't spend my day driving across town. Let me know what you need!

Nature loving & animal caring ladyWhite salmon, WA

Great day to all!

I am a young, energetic, health conscious, environmentally friendly, sustainably oriented, compassionate and caring individual. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and have had 2 sibling cats for over 9 years- Hobbes is a 15lb long haired tabby, he was the alpha of his litter; and Nibbler who's an 8lb long haired black and white tabby, she was the little runt. I have also cared and watched over my mom's growing pack of rescue dogs whenever I make it to her house in Portland. I have been described as a compassionate and caring person who has an instant repor with all animals. I believe animals can truly sense a person's intentions and are excellent judges in character. I look forward to meeting your furry family member, as I truly believe our pets are part of the family, as are my cats which I call my fur babies!

Doggos are what make me happy!Underwood, WA

My schedule is very flexible currently, so I can accommodate to your needs! I will listen carefully to any particular instructions you may have on what your pup likes or doesn’t like. I also care that your pup has the best time ever under my care. We will run, walk, fetch, snuggle, play, or whatever they most enjoy. I’m attentive to their needs in terms of water, food, and peeing/pooping. I’ll always make sure to pick up after them.

I don’t have a pup of my own currently, but grew up with the sweetest mutt named Golly, and I make sure to fill my life with doggos where ever I go. I have been living in Wyoming helping raise my friend’s German Shorthaired Pointer puppy who is a little rascal named Riley, and care for Nala, a pitbull/vizsla mix who is an absolute queen. Other friends often come to me for dog care, because they know that both the pup and I have so much fun!

Great communication, personable, and great with our Dave pup. She had a playmate that fit his energy well and was able to exercise him on a very rainy day in her basement. He came back happy and tired! She also did drop off and pick up, right to the hotel, which was really helpful for us.
