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 ❤️.

Caring, compassionate dog owners!La Mesa, CA

Hello! Emily and I would love to care for your pets. Here is a little bit about our experience as pet owners and professional service as well. I have had many types of dogs all of my life, primarily rescue animals. I currently own an 11 yr old Beagle. I sometimes care for my daughter's dogs, a Pom/ Dachsund mix and Poodle mix. I also have a cat however, she is outdoor and rarely interacts with any of the dogs. I have experience caring for both young and elderly dogs. I currently work from home. I allow dogs on the furniture in our home. I can provide a pet bed or comfy chair for your dog to sleep in. Daily walks, homemade food and playtime are part of our regular routine. My home is a welcome place for animals and they are always treated as a member of the family." - Linda

“Animals have been an integral part of my life. I’ve had a variety of pets ranging from dogs and cats to rats and lizards. My love of dogs and cats brought me to the veterinary field where I worked for 5 years and where I found my senior dog Shih Tzu named Bob. With your pet, I’ll indulge their needs, whether it’s lots of playtime, some cuddles, or a nice walk. I love getting to know them and doing what makes them happy!”-Emily

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!

It's in our nature to love animals!Estlake Greens, chula vista, CA

Hey there pet parents! My name is Janet and I am a full- time Animal lover and care provider. I am currently a full time student at southwestern college and a part- time intern until September 2020. My mother karen is home throughout the day and would be more than happy to assist when I am not available.

Please note our rates are based on 24h hours. We have very flexible hours and are open to making arrangements!

My mother Karen is very kind hearted and passionate towards animals. We truely care about how your dog will feel while under our care and will do our best to provide the comfort needed. We love going on our routinly walks in the morning, afternoon and evening, inviting your pups to join!

My mother and I have had years of experience caring for various of animals and can read some dogs energies. We feel comfortable and confident with the care that we provide towards multiple animals at a time. Each animal has different personalities and needs. For your dogs best care it is essential to inform us of thier behaviors or any situations that may trigger your pet. Such as ringing the door bell which is common in most dogs but also more behaviors to be aware of Does your dog get scared around other people or specific dogs? Do loud noises startle your pup? We have been working with rover for over 2 years and have loved every animal weve hosted.

Since I was a baby, I was always around various of animals and there has never been a year since that I don’t have a dog or a cat. My mother and I love animals very much and we’re joyful when we're around animals.

We have two dogs, a Siberian Husky, Rokko and a Labrador Retriever mixed, Sasha. Both, Sasha and Rokko are older and lazy, but they love going out for walks! Rokko enjoys playing and running with other dogs at a park.

When we board your cats, they will have their own separate room to eat, sleep, poop, and play!

We will treat your pet as if they were our own fur baby and we will do our best to accommodate your babies schedule to ours.

Please, contact us if you have any questions or concerns, we look forward to speaking with you.

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)!

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.

Hi there! My name is Kathy, I'm a very sociable and trustworthy person who's pretty easy to get along with. My whole animal-loving family of 6 (my husband, my brother in-law, three daughters, and myself) all live in the one house, as well as 10 chickens who have a coop in our yard, three dogs, and three amazing cats. I have my own working vehicle and am often available to check up on your dogs to ensure they are well fed and exercised. I have a large yard with plenty of room for your dog to run and various surrounding trails for walks and hardly any cars. My property is partially fenced in in our front yard and our back yard is entirely fenced. I've grown up with dogs as my best friends so coming from another furry friend loving owner to owner, I will treat your dog like my own :)
