Where the Dogs come to Play!Chimney Lakes, Jacksonville, FL

My family and I live in a spacious with a fenced in yard where there is plenty of room for your dog to play.

Being an active family, we love walking and running with our furry friends, not to mention our organic lifestyle has also expanded to dog care which means your dog will be given all natural pet products that include Treats, Water Solutions, Foods and Shampoo/Bath Care.

Why Rover?

Being a stay at home mom, I have ample amount of time to properly care for your dog. I am experienced with taking care of dogs as well as cats both personally and professionally, as I have previously worked at a doggy daycare before having my daughter.

I am a proud dog mama of Brutus, our border collie/boxer and Stella, our border collie/cattle dog. My husband and I rescued Brutus as a puppy three years ago and he became a sweet member of our family immediately. Recently I found Stella and just fell in love with her loving nature. After having such a wonderful babies, I understand wanting that one on one time with your dog is crucial and how important it is to have open communication and trust to ensure your dog is happy and healthy in my care.

I look forward to meeting you and your furry babies!!

Leader of the PackMandarin, Jacksonville, FL

I am blessed to not only have a full time job that I can perform from home, but also a job that doesn't require constant attention, so I can focus pursuing my true passion; animals! I have found there isn't a breed that I don't feel comfortable handling, and each animal has their own unique and special personality. I have grown up around animals my whole life, but have been working hard and traveling so much that I haven't had time for a pet to call my own. I have had dogs, cats, iguanas, snakes, turtles, fish, birds, and a pot-bellied pig. All animals our capable of living to their fullest potential if the owner has the patience and endurance to handle them and discipline them properly

I am ALWAYS AVAILABLE even if Calendar not updated.

I absolutely love pet sitting. I love the dogs like my own. They line up for lovings, petting their heads one by one. I make fresh femur bones and send them home with new clients. They are great for their teeth and they chew on them for months. No unspayed females. NO DIGGERS. Home FULL TIME for your Dogs. Flea prevention required! I PROUDLY TAKE PIT RESCUES!

I Pet Sit full time! 24/7 supervision and 24/7 indoor/outdoor access large Pet door! I am always available since my family is furry family. Clients are surprised with the immediate bond their dogs have with me. I have always had pets, exotics too. Large ones, small ones, (small ones are allowed on the couch) and I let them out in the front yard. I have 2 lots and they are divided by chain link fence. Animals give unconditional love and I reciprocate that! I prefer having multiple dogs and specialize in socialization. I lavish their faces/heads with petting and love, they take turns like an assembly line, lol. Spending time with animals is very fulfilling for me. Dogs feel an immediate connection with me. I have a very big yard and pet door. I have been devoted to animals all my life. I even have a custom made Dog house for larger dogs. I have cared for and had animals since I was a child.

Ready for some furry friends!East Arlington, Jacksonville, FL

*All dogs we care for MUST be cat friendly*

We love all animals and share our home with a cat, so it is vital they feel safe at home too.

If you need someone to care for your furry loved one we would love the opportunity! I am 32 years old and going to school full time online after being in the military, so I am home most of the day.

I do take 2 classes on campus, where I am gone about 2 hours twice a week. I am married and have 2 boys (8 & 10) who are absolute dog lovers and enjoy playing with all the different pups we get to care for! We have a fenced in yard and plenty of time to get some play and exercise in!

We also offer daycare, so if your pup needs lots of exercise, puppy socialization, or just once a week playdates we are the ones for you!

I began this Rover journey as a way for my kids to be able to have dogs withlut committing to one since my husband and I were both still active duty military. Our little business has thrived and we absolutely love eveything about it! We organize our entire house and yard to cater to the dogs and hope to open up a full facility within the next couple of years. Caring for pups has becomey passion and I cant wait to share it with you 💞🐾

Works from home-Fenced in yard!Riverview, Jacksonville, FL

Hi there, my name is Krysty! I own my own wedding coordination business so some days I work from home And other days my schedule fluctuates. I’m usually able to be pretty flexible for drop off and pick up times.

I also used worked for a pet daycare & boarding facility near by for a year. I'm used to caring for all different sizes, ages, breeds and am able to cater to an array of special needs. Not to mention, I was in charge of 25-35 dogs at any given time during play times so I'm good at depicting behavior and keeping them busy with toys and running around often!

Iv been around many types of animals all of my life ranging from dogs, cats, goats, fish, birds & hamsters since I was very young. I have a huge fenced in yard to play in and a pool to make a splash if ok with mom & dad!

I'm a huge photo person so like to keep parents up to date with lots of photos throughout the stay!

Pets are better than humans in my opinion, they are always loving & happy to see you! I have a small 11 year old Yorkie named Allie-Marie and a 4 year old tortie cat named Paisley-May. This past year I adopted a 5 year old Afghan Hound named Pollux. (Greek for "Horse God") They are my pride and joy and Im sure anyone could tell you they are spoiled rotten! I would probably have a farm if I had the space! Ha! A typical day for my fur-babies are ear scratches, fetch, snuggles at nap time, car rides, park adventures, huge yard to play in and lots and lots of belly rubs!

I would love to extend the love to your fur babies while your away from home. Looking forward to making a new BFF!!

****New clients FAQ: (My Process) I do typically board more than one pup at a time. I always check with the parents to make sure new clients are compatible with other pups. I have had up to 16 dogs at my home at one time during holiday seasons. Some may say that sounds nuts but I say the more wet kisses the better!

I have a large cube shelf in my office where I label each cube for each dog. It consists of their food, any belongings they brought and a care instruction card I personally make for each dog to outline their care needs for the remainder of their stay.

I do not mess around with food aggression. I prep all feeding bowls ahead of time to make the process seamless. Each dog is either put into their crate to eat or they are sectioned off into separate rooms of the house until they are finished. Afterwards their bowls are picked back up.

**I do ask that you pre-baggie your dog’s food and label it with their name for each meal instead of bringing a huge bag of food (It's very hard to store multiple large bags of food)**

For sleeping arrangements, some dogs do sleep with me(they all would if my bed was large enough lol), the rest are divided into rooms of the house depending on where they are used to sleeping at home. Some may sleep in their crate (parent's advisory), some may sleep in the living room, office or my bedroom.

I ask that parents bring anything that will help make their fur-baby feel at home such as food, bowls, leash, toys, treats, bed, crate, ect.

** I offer baths:

Small: $15

Medium: $17

Large: $20

***Late pick up fees: There is an additional $10 fee per hour after 8pm for pick ups. (Ex. 10pm pick up would be an additional $20 / 10:30pm would be an additional $25)

***Due to high inquiry volume, I will put a 2 day courtesy hold on your appointment once notified. I ONLY consider the appointment confirmed once the client confirms on their end as well, (I do not consider a written agreement as a conformation) I then add you to my calendar. :) ***

"4 Legs Walk Inn"Orange Park, FL

Our household consists of my husband and myself. We are very animal-loving and I can look back on over 30 years experience in dealing with animals. First rule, animals come first, then us. Doggy daycare is available between 8am-6pm as well. At present, we enjoy the company of a lovely female dog who already accompanied our family for almost 8 years. She loves company and she is used to have dogs around her. Since I'm working at home I have plenty of time to take care of her. We have a large house with an fenced backyard and the possibility to accommodate another dog. If you ask me, you don't need a pro dog trainer for hosting. I'll take care of your sweetheart's needs with all my love and passion to animals. Don't worry I am not only caring and devoting but also consistently.

Every dog owner has a special proportion to his animal and there are also very special rules and food habits included. I would like to know all the details to take care of them and to keep it equivalent for your pet.

I think the distance from the owner alone is painful enough, and therefore I'll try to make the new environment as pleasant as possible so I attach great importance to boisterous and balanced entertainment. Fun and games are on first place.

Your dog will love it.

Why I love dog sitting?

Since more than 30 years, I have experience in dealing with animals. It started in my childhood with my great love for cats, dogs, fish and birds that has made for the fact that I have surprised my parents often with the adoption of homeless pets. That's what I continued as a student when I had my own place. Birds, fish and cats have less problems of being alone for several hours while I was working, so I had to refrain of having dogs. After founding a family and my son's request, we finally got a dog ( purebred mongrel :-) ) as a new family member. With good care and our love all our animals got very old, except for one cat that was unfortunately very sick and pasted away after his 5. year. When we decided to come to Florida 9 years ago, we only had a cat, which we lost at the age of 19 shortly before we moved. Here in our new home we have a lovely mongrel dog lady who we adore. We have many house cats, even some feral cats, in our neighborhood, which we support with love and food as often as we can.

About my yard

Our backyard is fenced all around and high enough that it prevents any dog of skipping over. It offers enough space to romp and race. Sorry, we do not have a sand place to dig, only grass and weeds, but therefore there is a dog friendly pool waiting to cool off after playing.

My experience administering medication

Even though I'm not a vet or an animal nurse and I have never given my animals any vaccinations or injections, I am quite experienced in the procurement of medicine. Because our genius animals are so smart sometimes it is necessary to be a little tricky and the better you will inform me about your methods the better it will work for us.
