Pet Paradise - Beech Grove, IndianaBeech Grove, IN

I am a stay at home wife that loves spoiling her family (husband and pets). We have a 55 gallon aquarium. We also have a 7 year-old beagle that just loves to play with other dogs in our fenced in backyard or anywhere in our home. We have recently adopted 2 mini pinschers, Mini 17 and Gigi 4 and they have fit in perfect. As far as my husband and I, we are just pet crazy and have been all of our lives. We think of our pets first , us second. We both enjoy dogs of any age or size. Having been in the medical field for over 20 years we welcome special needs. i do not change my rates on the weekends or holidays.

Bark Ripple Paradise!Indianapolis, IN

We are dog people. We have been on Rover for about four years, and it’s clear that dogs and owners love us! Probably because we have a big, fully-fenced yard for them all to play in and because we have several spare bedrooms to put dogs at night or when we are away at work. If your dog is more of a loner, or if they live to run and play, we have a spot for them. We’ve watched over 100 dogs, from 3 months to 16 year old, and with many health conditions. We often have multiple guest dogs at any given time and often have dogs from several homes, so your dog must love other dogs. We are insured by KennelPro, so you can feel safe booking with us. We are also masters of the "pupdate" - expect tons of photos and videos of your fur babies!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Drop Off & Pick Up Times:

As of July 2019, we have had so much success, we have needed to add some parameters to our drop off and pick up times. We thank you for your understanding of our new policy. We are not a commercial boarding facility and just two people with family, friends, and work, as well as a love for dogs!

Sundays: 7 AM - 11 AM; 9-10 PM

Mondays-Thursdays: 7 AM-7:30 AM; 6:30 PM-10 PM

Fridays: 7 AM-7:30 AM; 4:30-6:30 PM

Saturdays: 7 AM- 11 AM

Alone time:

Ryan and I both work full-time outside of the home. We both have slightly different schedules, but at maximum your dog might be at our home without a human for up to 8 hours. When we are not home, we do not allow unfamiliar dogs to be alone with each other. They are separated either by crates (if your dog uses one; we do not force crating) or by being put in separate rooms.

What do I need to bring?:

We require you to bring your dog's leash, their own food, and a food bowl. If they are used to being crated, please bring their crate. You can bring anything they need to feel comfortable. Please leave bones at home and keep toys to a few. They often get lost or chewed up by other dogs.

Home full time and lots of cuddlingGreenwood, IN

I have had a passion for animals my whole life. At age 17 I went into the military and became a vet tech. I have been working with animals as a vet tech, petsitting, working at a kennel and fostering for more than 20 years. I have very affordable prices and if your furry kids are in my home they are part of our family as long as they are with us. It stresses your loved pets less when they are in either a home environment as ours or in their everyday home rather than in a kennel situation where they get very little interatction for the most part. We have our own family of animals which are all spayed and neutered and the dogs have all been through obedience and LOVE to play or chew on a bone 24-7-365.

I do work, however my husband is home full time to take care of the house, kids and pets so someone is always home. He loves being around the pets almost as much as I do and we give them as much attention as they allow.

We have a fenced yard and they go out for potty breaks as often as they want. All dogs, even our own, are always supervised while outside. We have several kennels if they need to be kenneled, but try to leave them loose in the house as much as possible. We often have visitors that are never kenneled and just relax in a bed or couch.

Always home, huge fenced in yard!!Indianapolis, IN

Hello! I’m a mom of three girls...ages 10, 7 and 3. They all love dogs and would love to be able to love on some puppies. We have always had some sort of animal up until recently. I grew up with Great Danes, had pet raccoons, geese. I love all sorts of animals! I have a very big fenced in yard, lots of area for your dog to run off all of it’s energy. I have a small in home daycare. So I’m always home with my daycare kiddos and three girls so your pet will always have someone around. When I was in high school I actually worked in a veterinarian office. I have lots of experience with all sizes of dogs. Hope I can help you by spending time with your pet. Have a great day!

Karen's Hound HavenIndianapolis, IN

Due to the Coronavirus, I am still available to dog sit your dog if you are working from home and you need some time to work alone without your fur baby around. You and they can each get a break and your dog can run around my huge backyard with my two dogs and have fun. I have very strict virus protections in place at my house. Three of us adults have weak autoimmune systems, so we take ourselves and our pets protection very seriously, as we would you and your pets. Masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and hand washing are practiced religiously!

I am a retired special-ed teacher. I have loved dogs my entire life and have been pet sitting for people 47 years. I stay home 24/7 all the time to care for the dogs, no trips or vacations. I have 3 adults in the house who help me out, if needed.

I have 2 dogs myself. Peaches, 11 a poodle who is very sweet & shy and Scotty, 4, a West Highland Terrier, who LOVES to play & run.

Please read the entire profile for all necessary information. It will answer all your questions.

We MUST have a meet and greet several days prior to scheduling your dog to see if we are a good fit for each other. I need to see your updated veterinarian shot records. No last minute scheduling unless it is a real emergency.

I haven’t raised my prices in 6 years to keep it affordable for my customers. After Rover’s percentage take, I make $3 per hour based on work hours. So tips are greatly appreciated.

Please let me know if you are a new customer, or if it has been awhile since you have used my services.

We have a huge 1/3 acre, wired fenced in yard. Our yard is shaded 80% in the summer.

I am always outside with the dogs as they play and potty and I sit on our screened in porch. They go outside approximately every 2 hours.

We have a two gallon water feeder inside and outside for thirsty dogs, and add Ultra Clean Tartar Control to our water to help reduce plaque that harbors bacteria.

We allow pets on our furniture and have laminate floors.

PLEASE have your dog’s toe nails clipped to a shorter length to prevent scratches to my arms.

We send text messages of how your fur babies are doing. We also send pictures.

Please do not book a stay until after we have had the meet and greet and I have accepted your dog(s).

** Not all dogs get accepted.**

We do not accept dogs:

•who fight

• have food aggression

• not housebroken

• have excessive barking

ALL pets need to be spayed or neutered.

No puppies, please.

We can accommodate your dog's special food and medical needs, including medications and shots. Their health is our upmost concern.

For feeding, we use sanitary stainless steel bowls, in various sizes, in separate locations for your dog because their feeding & health is extremely important.

Each dog gets a special bright green colored collar to wear saying they are on vacation at our house with our two phone numbers on it for security reasons.

We have a wicker basket full of all types of assorted toys. We have many dog beds, that we wash & sanitize after each visit.

You may bring your own toys/ beds as well to make them feel more secure and less anxious.

Don’t forget to send along your dog’s favorite treats. We give out small Milk Bone treats.

At night the dogs sleep upstairs with me unless parents want their fur babies crated. You will need to bring your own crate as we don’t own any.

In winter, we use pet friendly ice melt so it doesn’t hurt their pads.

Daycare is $25 per day. 8am - 7pm approx.

Overnight sitting is $30 per night.

Check-in: 4-6 pm

check-out: next day by 12 noon

Our overnight hours kind of operate like a hotel. Check out at noon.

If your dog stays throughout the day or into the evening, it will be considered a daycare charge of $25.

We will give one discount per visit for:

Multiple dogs

Senior citizen owners

Or extended stays, 3 weeks+

Please remember to write a dog review for Karen ‘s Hound Haven.

Please include something memorable that stands out in your mind. A funny story perhaps. Thank you.

We are located in Northeast Marion County, in Geist Landing, off of I-69 and E 96th Street, right behind the Meijer store, off Village Way.

We have a safe and connected neighborhood.

We are expecting to have a new fence built sometime in late May when the rains stops.

Sincerely,

Karen and family

Spoiled to the Bone!Indianapolis, IN

Hi there! My name is Jill, and I've been fostering/pet sitting dogs off and on for the last 10 years. I live in a house on the near eastside of Indianapolis in Woodruff Place. My house has a fully-fenced yard for the dogs to run and play, and you can expect that your dog will be walked daily.

I love ALL dogs especially the squishy-faced pups! I am the kind of person who will stop you on the sidewalk to ask to pet your dog. My children (only one is younger than high-school aged) are also dog lovers and are quite accustomed to dogs of various ages, breeds, and sizes. Through dog-sitting, we have been introduced with most dog breeds and have experience with all stages of life.

I am a high school teacher, so I'm home every afternoon by 3:30 (plus, I have summers and breaks off). Since I am away from home during normal work hours, your dog must either be crate trained or ok with being in a sectioned-off area of our home (made super cozy with blankets and beds, of course) while I am at work.

My house is very clean, and I've never had a single problem with my own pets interacting with dogs I've watched in my home. However, your dog MUST be friendly with other dogs as I often have overlapping dog guests. My kids love to snuggle and sleep with any furry guests. I hope to have the chance to love on your pup whenever you need me to care for him or her!

Barks & RecreationIndianapolis, IN

Hello! Welcome to my dog-filled life. I’m so glad you decided to consider our home. :)

WHO ARE WE?

I am a true animal lover. I have over a decade of experience caring for a variety of pets of all kinds and sizes. I am young, energetic, and passionate about animals! I have a rescued husky/lab mix named Izzo who is three years old, and a two year old rescued German Shorthaired Pointer named Wyatt. Both guys have great energy and LOVE playing with other dog friends. We also have 12 chickens in our backyard coop.

Follow along with our adventures on our Instagram, @Adventureswith2manydogs

WHY CHOOSE US?

Our large, securely fenced in backyard allows for lots of outdoor play time, and our couches are a perfect snoozing space. We also live 2 blocks from the Monon Trail which makes for awesome walks! We have a safe. Puppy-proof home. We have many repeat clients who we LOVE and have fostered over 20 dogs in the last 3 years for a local rescue organization. We also have experience with high-strung dogs, picky eaters, puppies to elderly dogs and everything in between. We are knowledgeable about different breeds. Is your dog afraid of thunderstorms? No problem! Do they like to sleep on the bed? Absolutely! Have pooch with medical needs? We got you covered! What about car-chasers? No worries at all.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

1. TONS of playtime! I often work from home, as does my fiancé, so dogs will not be left home alone for more than a couple of hours, depending on the day. I'm always pretty flexible.

2. Your dog's sleeping arrangement: If your dog prefers a crate, he is welcome to sleep there, or enjoy a favorite dog bed in my living room or with Izzo & Wyatt in one of the two bedrooms. At night, we gate off the kitchen to limit their access to our human food. :)

3. An abundance of photos of your dog eating, playing, snoozing, walking, or cuddling and updates, and we will gladly send them via rover message/text message/ carrier pigeon/smoke signals or whatever other method of communication that you prefer.

4. Professional and timely interactions.

5. A TIRED, HAPPY and HEALTHY dog waiting for your return. :)

THEREFORE...

I understand that your pets are an important part of your family, and they will be treated with the utmost respect, kindness, and love. ! I am very excited that I have many repeat clients that I have wonderful relationships with. Our clients, and their dogs, are family to us! Thanks for considering letting us be a part of your family and caring for your furry family members!!
