Animal loving home!Kansas City, MO

I have worked and volunteered with pets for the last 10 years and had pets of my own for 30+ years. We currently have 2 small dogs in our house who play well with others. I know pets are stressed with their owners away and I look forward to giving them extra love and attention while you are away. At our house your dog will get lots of play and exercise. I treat each guest as I would want my own dogs to be treated if I were away. Their health, happiness, and safety are a top priority! Thanks so much for considering me for your pets needs! Whether it’s in our home for daytime or over night stays, we hope to meet you and your pet soon!

Stay at home mom with great yard!Lee's Summit, MO

I have had dogs in my family my entire life. I grew up with small dogs and have owned large dogs with my husband. My husband, Andrew, and I rescued a dog from a shelter together as soon as we got married. We have two little boys who love every dog they have ever met. We also have the perfect house for your dog to come stay. We have a large backyard with lots of squirrels to chase and sticks to chew. Our dog, Oakley, is a 9 year old golden retriever mix. She is a sweetheart and loves playing with other dogs. We also allow dogs to roam freely in our home and we will treat your dog(s) as if they are our own.

Home full time! Large fenced yard!Merriam, KS

**Please read my profile before sending a request, please also note, I do not accept drop offs before 8am (daycare drop offs being the exception) or pick ups after 830pm, unless previously agreed upon at least 48 hours in advance**

We will make your pet feel right at home when they come stay with us. We are located right off for i35, which is especially easy to get to when headed to the airport. We do have a very large, fenced in backyard for the pups to run and play in. Our neighbors are also extremely friendly and love to come meet and play with our boarding dogs. We strive to sticking to the dogs schedule that they’re comfortable with at their own home. I am a stay at home mom to a 2 year old so someone is at home all of the time to give your pets the love and attention they deserve. I do offer house sitting, which would be me coming to spend the night with your animals in their own home. This can be the best option for pets with high anxiety or pets that don’t like to be around other pets. I offer boarding in our home for both cats and dogs.

I do offer free pick up and drop off for all pets within a 10 mile radius. I just ask that your pet be accustomed to leash walking and car rides for this service.

I offer drop in visits as well as walks. Drop in visits are 30 minute long visits where I come to your home to provide food/water, a walk or potty break and lots of attention. I offer drop in visits for cats as well, where I will come give your kitty lots of attention, scoop the litter box and offer food/water.

I have experience with animals with diabetes that require insulin injections as well as pets with medication or special care needs.

A little about my family and myself-

I'm a 26-year-old female living in Merriam. I attended college and majored in Early Childhood Education. My husband and I have one child, he is 2 years old. We have worked extremely hard with him on proper manners around all animals especially dogs. My husband works full time, but when he is home he is hands on helping with the animals in our home. Since I am home full time I am able to send as many pictures and updates as you want. I am also available for FaceTime if that is something you would want to do with your pet while your away.

We have 2 dogs that reside in our home with us. We have fostered for a few different rescues occasionally and have regular boarding clients that frequently use our services. I have experience with all breeds and sizes of dogs as well as cats. We have been involved in the animal rescue world for over 7 years and have been using Rover for 2 years. I am organized, punctual, and a non-smoker.

A little more about our personal pets-

Myla is our goldendoodle, she is 7 months old now. She loves to play chase and loves to wrestle with other dogs. She loves all other dogs/cats and every single humans he meets.

Milly is our basset hound mix, she is almost 4 years old. She is the reason we started pet sitting. Since Max is getting older she was always looking for a dog playmate and Rover gives her the chance to meet and play with new dogs all of the time. She is a vocal player and loves to be chased/chase other dogs in the backyard. She isn’t a pushy player however and doesn’t annoy other dogs that do not want to play. She is dog/cat friendly and loves humans of all sizes.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to meeting you and your pets!!!

3 Years of Dog Kennel Experience!Hanover Place, Kansas City, MO

I am a college student who loves spending my free time playing with dogs! With the current pandemic my classes have been moved online and my work hours are typically in the afternoons and evenings. I have 3 years of kennel experience that includes working with dogs of all breeds and personalities. I am available to work with aggressive or rowdy dogs, shy or scared dogs, and everything and anything in between. I can walk, run, or just hangout with your little friend. I can reinforce any current or on-going training for your dog, or introduce new skills that you want your dog to learn. I can give baths, brush outs, and clip nails. I can make dog friendly snacks for your furry friend to enjoy! I do not have any dogs of my own living with me so I will be able to focus 100% of my time your dog. * Don't forget to ask me for my promo code if you are a first-time rover user*

Home full timeOak Grove, MO

Hello!

I am a caring, compassionate and honest pet sitter who provides care both in my home and in my clients homes. Care is always tailored to your specific needs.

Care in your home is typically a 30 minute visit. In addition to tending to your fur baby, it can consist of mail collection, plant watering, etc.

My home offers 3+ fenced acres for supervised play and exploration. Pets are part of the family and have free reign of the house. Dogs that don't socialize well have a separate space for them to be comfortable and safe. Care can be anything from a day of play care to overnight care. Transportation can be provided if desired.

Please reach out with any additional questions. I look forward to hearing from you..

Thank you,

Kelly

Vet tech looking to love your pets,kansas city, MO

I work from home so I have lots of time to dedicate to the pets I care for. I have three dogs all of which are friendly and used to having new friends come to stay as we have done rescue, foster, pet sitting for years. I love to meet new furry kids. I know how important it is to me that my fur babies are taken care of and are happy and comfortable when I have to travel. I want to be able to make other pet lovers feel comfortable to travel and know their pets are getting the same fantastic care as when they are home. I was a vet tech for 15 years so am qualified to make sure fur babies are healthy and happy while they are with me. As an added bonus I live 5 minutes from the airport so easy access for drop off and pick up on your way in and out of town

Wigglebottoms ResortMerriam, KS

I am a third-grade teacher and although I love my kiddos, I have an affinity for dogs. They are each unique and always bring a smile to my face.

My dog-loving father lives a block away, therefore, he is available for potty breaks and anxiety issues during the day. (During the school year)

I have two friendly Boston Terriers named Gabrielle and Dakota. They love having company and know how to share. They are a bit of a clown and keep me on my toes.

Each animal is my priority and I have no problem carrying out their daily routines and learning their personality. Your pup is welcome on the furniture and allowed to sleep with me as well.

We enjoy playing fetch, doggie brain puzzles, going to the park, taking car rides and going for walks, or just playing in the fenced backyard.

( Please note: chain link fence is around 3 feet. There are two dogs on one side of the fence. I do not board certain breeds due to comfort levels of other clients.

Pics and videos will be sent to you daily. FaceTime your pup if you'd like!

Thank you in advance for trusting me with your family member, I promise to treat them like familia as well. Book now for a vaycay they won't forget!

I am happy to provide references upon request.

Animal loving family! Home all day!Kansas City, MO

I am home all day and can give your dog the attention they need. They can run around a huge fenced yard with our husky, Blaise, who loves making new friends, go on a walk around the neighborhood, or just hang out around the house. I've got 3 kids who will play with and love on your dog all day! We've owned a variety of breeds (from a tiny Maltese to a larger labradoodle) for years and we enjoy dogs so much! The kids and I have volunteered for KC Pet Project and truly love caring for animals. Your pet will be treated just as if they were one of our own. We understand that being away from their family can be tough so we are prepared to give extra love and attention. They can be out with us all day but must be able to sleep in a kennel overnight.

Thanks for considering us!

I've had my dogs taken care of by Juneall and her husband many many times now and am always at ease knowing they're taken care of. They're very accommodating to my dogs, and my dogs have a lot of senior care needs. I'm happy to have them as a resource.
