Home full time, pups up to 25 lbs.Morningside, Salem, OR

We have lost our Darling 14 Year old Clementine. So we have a vacancy in our hearts to love and care for your dog. We have a large fenced yard and we live across the street from a park. We also have a large Doggie Door which gives an option to either close or open so your dog may have freedom to go in or out of the house at any time upon your choosing. We have a slightly terraced back yard with different styles of landscaping which makes for a stimulating environment for your dog. We also have a brick ramp to our grass area for those who enjoy easy access to the lawn. There is a gated entry to our front door so no worries about your dog getting out when the door is opened. Our gates to the back yard have inside bolts so they cannot be opened from the outside unexpectedly. We do not do daycare on weekends and our pickup and drop off hours for both day care and boarding are between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. These hours are so your pup will have time to enjoy his breakfast and dinner without interruptions. (So they have time to eat and do their business before other pups start coming and going). We also like the late afternoon and evening to enjoy loving and cuddling with pups before bedtime so they feel safe and secure and are not stressed or excited by having pups and parents coming and going throughout the dinner and evening hours. (this makes for happy tummies). We have several beds and blankets for our pups who visit us (but we must confess most like to sleep in our bed with us). We also require a Meet and Greet before we accept a new pup. This is so you and your pup can be sure you like us and where he/she would be staying. It also lets us know if we are a good fit for you and your pup. We will be looking forward to meeting you and your pup soon.

Wife, Mother & Dog LoverKeizer, OR

Hi, I'm Jennifer! I am a wife, mother, and DOG LOVER! I grew up with dogs and am very comfortable around them. Watching and carring for your dog(s) would mean the world to me as I don't currently have one but love being around them! Your dog will be loved and given wonderful care! I live in a dog friendly atmosphere including a small fenced in back yard and large park 1/4 mile from my home.

I started this business when my daughter was 10 months old. She is now 3 and has a baby brother who is 9 months old. We have LOVED having different dogs in our home for the past few years. As long as your pup is good with kids, we would love to love on them!!

Paw-some Pet NannySalem, OR

Growing up, I had the nickname as an animal magnet as I always had over seven pets in the house and I love taking care of them! Now I have one cat named Salvador Dali. I also live with two roommates and they have two cats as well. Animals bring joy to my life and I want to return the favor by making them happy as well as their owners. I provide complimentary meet and greet before your booking to become acquainted with you and your pets and to determine that I am the right fit as your Rover sitter. Note: I am Deaf but that is never a barrier to me when it comes to taking care of animals or communicating with their owners!

Dogs and cats are my speciality but I am also familiar with bird, reptiles, rodents, and other animals. I have experiences with training puppies, taking care of senior pets and pets with special needs (post-surgical recovery, chronic illnesses, etc), and administering medicines orally and via injections (in dogs, cats, ferrets, and rats).

If you have any questions, please do not hesistate to contact me!

We will make sure they are loved!Salem, OR

We have a small fenced in back yard that allows for exercise and potty breaks in a safe environment. We have doggie beds available for naps and snuggling. Cascades Gateway Park has a fenced in dog area that is very close by, for even more social interaction, if you think your fur baby would enjoy it, too. My husband and I work different days so there is almost always someone home to be with the pups. Our resident dogs are respectful and enjoy making new friends. We love pups of all ages and sizes and yours will love staying with us!

We have both had dogs in our family since we were kids, large and small, from puppies to seniors. Since we adopted Shiner, he has enjoyed having new friends for him to play and run with around every now and then. Mandy Lynn is a more recent adoption and might be wary at first, but, she warms up to guests, too!

We currently have only dogs. No cats, birds, reptiles or children. We have experience with senior dogs that require special care and attention. We are comfortable administering both oral and injected medication. Telma is also certified in Pet first aid and CPR.

I am available! Calendar is broken!Albany, OR

**** Our family is taking all necessary health precautions during these precarious times. Current evidence shows that our pets are not able to transmit covid19 to humans. However, if you are sick we do ask that you keep your pets home with you in quarantine, for the safety of our family and our other clients. We have a large, fenced “air gap” around the front door that we have used successfully up until now for pick up and drop off times as a leash up area, at this time we ask that you stay at the gate but let your pet into this area unleashed where I will immediately take over. This is to keep touching of door handles and common areas down to a minimum, while also ensuring we maintain social distancing protocols for both our safety and the safety of our human clientele. If you have questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask.****

*** There is almost ALWAYS availability, the app calendar doesn’t always reflect accurate availability unfortunately. Please message me if a date you need is “blacked out”. ****

My home is in Albany, located conveniently right off I-5 in a nice, quiet neighborhood with solid 6 foot fencing around the entire yard. I work from home so the dogs are never alone for long and always supervised when together.

Pick up and drop off times for day care or boarding services are extremely flexible with pet parents frequently dropping off as early as 0600 and picking up as late as 2200 (on request). Dog Walking services generally consists of a 30 min. walk around your neighborhood, or with your permission your dog can be taken to a fenced dog park or walked more vigorously in a less urban environment (please ask me about this if you are interested!)

I also take care of non-dog pets so feel free to contact me if you have any other species of family member that needs care while you're away! I am currently offering everything: day-care, over-nights, dog walking, and home checks.

Give me a call! Let's meet at the dog park!

I have a lot of love to give!Salem, OR

1. Experience!

I can't remember a time in my life in which I didn't own and take care of a pet, so I'm familiar with the care required for furry friends. I currently have a sweetheart of a border collie named Zephyr.

2. I'm a Lover, Not a Fighter!

I am nurturing, compassionate, and trustworthy, and I believe in the power of positive reinforcement. I have always loved animals, and I have a high level of empathy.

3. I am Dedicated!

I am patient, conscientious, organized, and willing to work hard. I feed, walk, play with, and love on your pals. I respect any specific wishes or instructions given by the pet parent.

4. I'm Flexible!

Ask about availability; I can be flexible! I work a few days a week outside the home, but I can make special arrangements. I'd love to care for your dog in my home, your home, during the day, overnight, or just for a nice walk.

Big or small, I love em all!Salem, OR

I have a Golden doodle (Milo), and a chihuahua/jack Russell mix (Lulu). I came home from the Navy in 2006 and have had dogs as small as 12 pounds and as big as 166 pounds. I was there when my momma Saint Bernard had her 7 “little” Saint Bernard puppies and know how to care for puppies and momma dog.

***YES! I do accept puppies that need potty training. Ask about my special rates for boarded potty training!***

I have taken care of injured and sick dogs and cats. I currently have 3 inside/outside cats. I have experience with other animals such as cats, rabbits, mice/rats, horses, chickens, and other farm animals. I am comfortable giving medications or bandaging up wounds as needed. Your dog or cat will always be loved and played with while you’re not available. If they get to come over to my house, your dog will have room to run and play inside and outside. I have experience using pinch collars, harnesses, and shock collars.

HOME F/T - FENCED YARD - 20 yrs EXPSalem, OR

*Over 20 Years of Experience

*Air-Conditioned!

* 24-Hour Human Care (It is what you are paying for.)

*Fenced-In Backyard with grass - No stairs in the home.

Leave your dog in the hands of a trusted and responsible sitter so you can go where you want worry-free. I cater to dogs up to 35 pounds (with a bit of wiggle room). I am here all day and night to give love, treats and potty breaks! I have taken courses in dog behavior as well as first aid. I love animals and genuinely care for the dogs I sit for. Anyone can be a pet sitter but not every pet sitter is a pet lover!

I am happy to arrange a time for a Meet & Greet today! I would love to answer any questions you have. Please feel free to call or text with the Rover number provided.

PLEASE NOTE: I usually do not take dogs for the first time without a Meet & Greet, as it is important to both your dog and to me.

MY MEET AND GREET PROCESS:

My meet and greet consists of talking with you and answering any questions you have, having a look at my property and after that I like to spend 20 minutes with your dog by myself. This helps me see how he or she is without family around and also will help me to establish a bond. It makes it easier for your dog to come back next time as well! : )

9 acres to run & play!Dallas, OR

I have loved dogs my entire life! I was raised on an 80 acre farm with lots of animals and have a ton of experience caring for them. I was in dog 4H for 7 years growing up. I am very experienced in obedience training, grooming and dog care. I have owned many types of dogs from mixed breed rescue to pure bred Australian Shepherds. I'm highly dog savvy and am not intimidated by breeds or size. I take my dogs on walks around my property twice a day and enjoy being outside with them as much as possible. I have indoor and outdoor kennel space on my 9 acre property. If you want your dog to have an ideal stay and open place to run, we are the right place for you!
