Patient and Loving Sitter w/ HouseSerra Mesa, San Diego, CA

My name is Sam, I am 32 years old and work from home as a freelance graphic designer. I love dogs, big and small, and I am very responsible with them. I grew up with, and have had several dogs as pets, and I have a calming presence which animals seem to appreciate. I am very reliable, dependable, and honest. I live with one roommate who helps take care of the dogs when I have to go somewhere. We live in a medium-size house with a large backyard with pet turf that the dogs have access to all day. The dogs all sleep inside, either in a play pen in the living room or in my bedroom. I have a lot of dog knowledge and I have a great safety record. I have been taking care of pets on and off since I was 12 years old and I enjoy it very much!

The Perfect Couple. (For your pets)College Area, San Diego, CA

Hello and welcome to our page!

My name is Charlie and I just wanted to briefly introduce myself and my partner Shanna so you know a little about us and the business!

I personally am currently 29 and originally from a small town in Pennsylvania. I recently came out to San Diego 4 years ago to get my Masters in Criminology, which I have recently received: yay, go me!

After being saturated with education for my entire life, I decided that I wanted to pursue a new passion. This new goal is to have a full time business with Shanna that focuses on a greater good, which in this regard, is assuring that pets are as happy, well taken care of, and as loved as possible while their owners may have other obligations.

I've always loved animals and have been well received by most of them my entire life. I like to think it's because I embrace compassion upon meeting anyone and respect boundaries. I personally had multiple dogs and cats my entire life growing up and my best friend in high school was a guinea pig named Rascal. Shanna, who is originally from New Jersey, was raised with an abundance of animals- at one point she had 12 animals living at her home! (6 dogs and 6 cats)

Shanna helps me tag-team this business so we can give your pet(s) the best care possible by providing 24/7 supervision with either myself or her at home! Chances are good that you will get to meet her as well, where you and your pet will inevitably end up loving her as much as I do (Well not AS much ;p), she really is the sweetest person in the world.

Any time we go to someone's house it becomes apparent that we are spending more attention to their pet than we are to them. I like to think we share a strong bond with most animals because we share nothing but love and respect with them. Our end goal is to make this our future careers, and these animals are your children- thus we take this business very seriously. We provide daily photo updates, and a meet and greet is always welcome if you feel the need to request one, so then we can achieve a comfortable bond with everyone prior to the stay/walk. (We do get boarded up quickly and are fairly busy, so meet and greets may only be with either myself of Shanna.)

IMPORTANT!!: We have been getting booked fast as of recently due to popularity, so we ask that you try to pick up your pet(s) by 1pm after the last night of their stay with us if booking an overnight. We try to treat this business with hotel-esque policies, that way we can get our new clients in with prompt time for preparation. If you need to pick them up later, please let us know the time, so we can make further accommodations and possibly look into booking a reduced daycare rate for the day- we appreciate it! Also, we don't ever want cost to be the final decision maker for you not wanting to book with us; talk to us. We are usually flexible and our primary goal is assure that your pets will be in the best environment and in the best care possible.

My experience administering medication:

Both myself and Shanna have administered diabetic shots to dogs prior to our business due to our own animals having issues. We have also had a plentiful amount of clients during these past 3 years of being pet professionals that have needed certain medication and injections. We have experience with dogs that have certain disabilities (hearing impaired, vision, walking) as well. Overall, we are very confident in taking care of any dog breed, and accommodating any needs for your fury loved one(s). As always, an open dialogue is key.

We have been so blessed to have been able to do this for over 3 years now- making it our full time with no intention on stopping.

We have met some of the most amazing dogs, cats, and owners already, and to be able to share our love and be apart of everyone's lives, even if for short period or long, is rewarding and a feeling we wouldn't trade for anything. Hopefully you and your pet(s) can join us on this journey ❤️.

Experienced Dog-Lovers. HOME F/T!College Area, San Diego, CA

We are Bill & Todd, and we are experienced sitters! Having undergone advanced screening, we have been met face-to-face and our home has been inspected. Working from home, I (Bill) am home full time. This means that my coworkers are of the canine variety and are also my best dogs. My yellow lab and my shepherd mix keep me company during long days of work, providing me with the best excuses for taking breaks. Need a belly rub? Ready for a snuggling session? I could go for that! My furry coworkers and I are looking forward to meeting your canine companion! We will be able to provide your dog with the care and attention he deserves while staying with us. Our home is located South of the 8, not far from SDSU and close to Montezuma Park, is super dog friendly! Our yard is grassy with a doggie door into the house.

Our fee is for a 24 hour stay and we are very flexible with your drop off and pick up times. Contact us now - we'd love to have you over for a meet and greet!

Why I love dog sitting

We have been life-long dog lovers and are very active helping pets in need for a local adoption agency. We have decades of experience caring for all kinds of special needs pets too.

About my yard

I have a nice fully fenced-in yard, perfect for soaking up some sunshine and spending a long afternoon playing endless games of tug o' war.

Dependable & Caring, True Dog LoverNorth Hills, San Diego, CA

I only board 1 Dog at a time, so they will get my sole attention and love while in our home! We (my husband, Jake, and I) do not have children or any dogs of our own- so your pup will be our #1!! :)

Since our 17 year old cairn terrier, Sassy, passed 2 years ago we have not gotten another dog-- this is the first time in my life I have not had at least one dog under my roof, that is why I can guarantee to you that your dog will get all the love and attention it deserves from me and MORE!

Ever since I was born my life has been surrounded by dogs. My house always had large & small dogs, always at the same time & all loved with every bit of my heart. Since I work from home with a very flexible schedule, I have the ability to shower your dog with all the one-on-one love, care and attention it deserves when we are together! (I do have some regular dog walks that I do through the weekdays that can have me out of the house for 2-3 hours during the middle of the day, but other than that I am home)

I can't wait to meet your fur family!

Capital Animal Rescue ♡ San DiegoAllied Gardens, San Diego, CA

~~~ About Me ~~~

Animals will always have a special place in my heart and home.

Growing up, I always knew I wanted to work with animals, from goldfish to elephant; and all the sizes in between. Dogs became my perfect companion! As I grew older, my passion for animals grew with it. My experience includes over 12 years of animal care including obedience training, fostering, rehabilitating, animal advocacy and volunteering. In the past, I have worked to organized and coordinated host sites for pet adoption events with partnering animal rescue groups including Montgomery County Humane Society and Taiwan SPCA.

In 2011, my housemate, Ming and I turned our home (in Washington DC) into what we call "Capital Animal Rescue and Environmental Foundation", aka C.A.R.E (for short) where we sheltered, rehabilitated and placed homeless animals into forever homes through socialization with other animals and people. In those beginning years, I learned more than I could ever imagine about dog psychology, temperament levels, medical care, and addressing behavioral issues including separation anxiety, aggression and nervousness.

Since then, I have moved to San Diego in 2016 to continue my work in animal education and canine behaviorist. While Rover is my part-time hobby, I take top-priority in providing clients with the best possible services.

I have cared for over five-hundred pups in the past six years, all with different breeds, personalities, temperament levels and different needs. Next to pup cuddles and wagging tails, it brings me much joy to witness the progression of a pup who comes in stressed, but leaves happy, stressed-free and confident. I believe animals, may small or big-- belong in a pack environment. Given that control, safe and training environment, our furry friends learn what its like to work and play as a pack!

~~~Important Notes~~~

1. Meet n’ Greets are required for all new furry friends.

2. Bring food (labelled), treats, collar, leash, DOG TAGS and favorite toys.

3. Relax your pup prior to arrival by taking him/her on a long long long walk/run. Make sure they’ve pee'd and pooped already.

4. Please mention any quirks your pup may have, IE: marking, biting, barking, aggression, doesn't like car rides, terrified, etc... Don't worry because I will still take them in if I can. I just need to know what I'm working with and how to help them.

5. Preferred DROP-OFF/PICK UP TIMES before 12pm and after 6-7pm. Latest Pick-up is 9pm. If we need to make other arrangements just let me know.

6. Make sure your dog is clean and groomed. No super stinky pups. I like to cuddle them (if they like of course) and I like to stay clean too. Please brush/furminate them if you can. Much appreciated.

Please note that I take care of many dogs throughout the stay, usually between 3-8 pups a day. I believe dogs and animals should live and socialize in a safe pack in order to keep them healthy and happy. The pack and I would love to meet you and your furry friend(s)!

We love all dogs like our own.Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA

Hi,

Since I was born I have always had dogs around me, I absolutely love them and my dream as a kid was being a millionaire and adopting all the dogs without a home and taking care of them. A part of that dream hasn't come true, but I really enjoy having dogs over, walking them, and spoiling them like they where my own. I have 2 adorable dogs Swami the beagle. She is adorable and love new friends, and Bonnie, she is lovely French bulldog, turns 2yr old in March 2019 she is as sweet as any Frenchie can be...

I prefer to stay at your home up to I will travel farther if the stay is longer San diego, I am currently working from home and doing postmates and delivering for amazon so I have a flexible schedule I try to come back and let doggies out every 4-5 hrs

We will welcome your doggies to our family, as well as I will be a very respectful guest at your home and we will spoil them as much as you let us, always respecting your ways and rules

About this sitter:

I prefer me staying at your house with your dogs if they are nervous dogs or have separation anxiety

I will expect a detailed instruction of what you expect from me, your dogs special needs and likes. We will be happy to take him or her for walks or runs, depending of what they are used to and like as well. We absolutely love all breeds (we have breed restrictions listed on the listing but will always give them a chance if the meet and greet goes well) and sizes, dogs are my passion and will have a lot of fun with them, they are marvelous creatures to us and we love to see all different types of personalities. We are very patient and will treat your dog or pet as our own. We are very responsible and have a great dedication for animals.

Why we love dog sitting

Since I was born, they are my passion, till I have kids of my own, I feel dogs are like my kids.

Meet my pets

We are a dog lover family and we love to help out those who will need to leave their dogs behind, I have 2 lovely dogs of our own, and when we leave out of town, I wish we could find people like us to look after them as well. We will pamper your dog, and will respect your ways if there are specific things you like to do or not do with them...

My dogs usually go for 3-5 walks a day, and as most dogs they sleep a lot, occasionally they get a boost of energy and play around the house. We have crates of different sizes, but we only use them for our dogs and if your dog is used to be crated, we crate ours when left alone, but its never more than 3hrs-5hrs at a time if even, but I encourage for you to bring their own crate/bed so they smell something that is theirs and feel more at home, if your dog is used to roam free and is well potty trained we have no problem having them roam. They will all sleep with us on the bed. We will respect your preferences for your dog, if he or she is used to just chill in the house, we will let them chill. Sometimes they are never alone... I am very flexible and willing to work around you.

We offer pick up and drop off also for an extra fee.. but I am flexible and we can work it out... We will work with you if you do too.

All my regulars love having me over to dog sit and also house sit when they are gone.

Home Full time in ideal dog settingSerra Mesa, San Diego, CA

I have a 5 year old terrier chihuahua mix named Roxanne that I hang out with all day. Your dog will get plenty of human affection and dog companionship from Roxanne. I'd be a great fit for someone that wants their dog

to have free reign to roam around the house and lounge on the couch or bed. But for dogs that are on a training regimen I'm happy to follow specific disciplined instructions and continue with discipline training,

Potty training, etc as well. There are a couple fantastic dog parks a within a half mile walk from my house so lots of opportunities for enrichment. I have multiple bedrooms setup specifically for hosting dogs. There are also multiple outdoor spaces suitable for dogs as well. I've basically setup the house to accommodate dogs of any temperament successfully. All the surfaces in the house are quite durable so not a problem for me to host dogs that can be destructive or those that are still figuring out the potty thing. I live centrally and not far from the airport so it's an easy location for those that are flying out.

Work from home -grassy potty areasCore, san diego, CA

My pup Sabrina and I LOVE meeting people and new fur friends to play with! We go outside frequently throughout the day and spend most of the day at home together. (I work as a Makeup artist from my in home studio and go to school online.) Sabrina has had a few surgeries on her back legs over the year so we are no stranger to pets who need extra love and care. She is incredibly sweet, and shy but loves to play. We make all of her food at home from scratch and have no problem with pets with dietary restriction. I am happy to provide any medications that need to be given orally. We visit dog beaches near by often and go for walks downtown. I absolutely love all animals, cant imagine my life without them. We cant wait to meet you and help care for your loved one while your away!

FETCH . PLAY . LOVE

***ASK ABOUT MULTIPLE DOG OR LONG STAY (7 night +) DISCOUNTS***

Let your dogs vacation while you vacation or play while you work! I work from home full time as a graphic designer and mom so your dogs will have constant supervision, love and attention. I have a large safe and gated backyard with grass, dirt and artificial turf for running around and playing! Your dog may not come back 100% clean but they will be 100% happy!

I grew up in a home where my parents rescued dogs through their 501c3. I've been surrounded my whole life by all types of animals, small dogs, big dogs, special needs dogs, and everything in between. I currently have a French bulldog who is sweet, mellow and loves all his doggy guests! I have a small and safe house in Mission Hills. I am easy going and very nurturing. When your fur baby is with me I will treat he or she as if they were my own.

I like to keep my boarding exclusive as I only allow 2-3 dogs at a time so that I can provide each dog with equal love, attention and supervision. For safety reasons we do not go to dog parks or dog beach. Luckily I have a fenced off 2,500 sq ft backyard where the dogs can run freely and safely.

***************** PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING *****************

Meet and greets are scheduled after daycare hours (6pm) on weekdays. I don't feel comfortable meeting new dogs while my regulars are here to play. They are my main focus.

Please schedule a meet and greet prior if you'd like to come in and check everything out.

Daycare is only between 7am - 6pm. If you need to pick up any later let me know prior and there will be a $15 late fee added.

Boarding pick ups must be made by 7pm. Please let me know if you’re unable to do that and we can discuss an arrangement that works best.

Feel free to message me any questions or concerns you may have. Ro & I can't wait to meet you!
