Dog Boarding in Magnolia Park, Des Moines, IA
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight at your sitter's home.
“Lisa took great care of both our dogs even despite some challenges when she broke her hand. Her husband was also very helpful and our dogs loved hanging out with them while we were out of state. She even sent home a bag of treats they were especially fond of. Our dogs are often cautious of new people, especially a neglected rescue… and they warmed up to her in only a couple minutes on the meet and greet which had never happened before. Recommended for sure!”
“I had to leave for the airport and came home a lil later than the time given and Alice was so gracious to try to help things work with me. This was the first time I had to leave my dog and my dog also seemed to love her, even gave her hugs and affection without commanding.”
“It was our first time leaving our pup for a vacation. We were super nervous, but Rebekah was great with Finn! Sent pictures/videos daily and kept us updated on how he was adjusting. So much better than kenneling! He had other dogs to play with and not put in a cage like in a kennel. Plus someone to love him! Will definitely use Rebekah next time we need to! Thanks again Rebekah for treating Finn like a member of your family! ❤️”
About: My life has revolved around dogs for as long as I can remember. As a kid I was always the designated cat or dog sitter for my neighborhood, family, and friends. While in high school I worked at the local vet’s office and also volunteered several days a week at the animal shelter. I went to college to be a vet tech while working at Petsmart as a dog trainer, and later worked in the field as a vet tech. I made a career change a couple years ago and have been missing all of the extra animals I used to interact with on a daily basis. Your dogs will be in excellent, loving, and experienced hands with my fiancée and I! My fiancée and I both work full time Monday through Friday, however, my fiancée works from home several days a week. We both have weekends off and regular hours during the week, so your dogs (and ours) will never be alone for too long! We have a large fenced yard and two friendly dogs to keep your dog company. If your dog or dogs is not a fan of others, we are experienced and feel comfortable with crating and rotating to keep everyone safe and happy
“Jasmine was great ! If I could give 10 stars , we would !”
“We loved Genevieve's communication and how much she cared about our dog! It's not always easy leaving your fur-babies but we felt confident with Genevieve! She has a great set up in her home, gave lots of attention to our pup, and sent pictures! We would absolutely use her again and certainly recommend!”

“Christy and Erkem kept my 13-yr-old bichapoo Bella for a week and were fabulous. Bella had never been boarded before so was quite anxious, and I expected she wouldn't eat for a few days. Christy and Erkem must have quickly put her at ease since Bella ate as usual. I really appreciated their regular text and video updates and was able to enjoy my time away since I was confident Bella was happy and well cared for. I highly recommend Christy and Erkem and will definitely use them again!”
“Copper had a great time at Cassandra’s home! We received pictures and videos throughout his stay and felt comfortable that Copper was getting plenty of attention and walks. Would def book again!”

“Scott took our pup on a short notice and we are so grateful! Went out of his way to make sure we got photos and videos which really gave us peace of mind. My pup had a lot of fun playing with the other dogs and Scott and his wife are extremely kind! Will be reaching out to Scott in the future. ? highly recommend!”
“Justin took such great care of my girl Winnie when I was away on vacation. He provided pictures of everyday and she looked like she was having so much fun with his dog Burton. I knew she was in great hands and didn’t worry while I was away. Thank you!”
“Will def be using Alexandra again, Atlas loved his stay. They were very communicative, welcoming, loving and sent updates and photos. Greatly appreciated!”

“Ash just loves being at Lori's house. I can tell when I pick her up & she's not nervous & when I drop her off she's excited to get there. I'm so glad. I can't bear to think of Ash closed in any kennel for 10-12 hours straight. At Lori's, she's right home, cuddling & hanging out with her new friend. So happy. Thanks, Lori!”
“Emily is a great pet sitter! She has taken care of both of my pups and my cat on multiple occasions. Her home is spacious with room for my pups to roam inside and out. She is dependable, kind, and very caring toward my pets.”
“It was such a relief to finally feel confident and comfortable leaving my dog with a sitter so I could enjoy my vacation worry free! Victoria went out of her way to make her home safe and enjoyable for my dog who was dealing with some stiffness. I'd recommend her to anyone!”
“Megan is a wonderful sitter for my pup. She is sweet and attentive. My boy loves her big back yard. I appreciate the pictures she sends me! Great place.for my best boy!”
“Jessica is a terrific dog sitter. We rarely leave our dog, so when we do it is nice to feel comfortable leaving her with a trusted sitter. Our dog spent her weekend away from us playing with Jessica's dog and being treated like family. She is worn out from all of the fun she had. We will be using Jessica again!”
“Kalanie & her gangs are so kind and lovely people. We got the updates and pics every day. Our flights were delayed a few rime and couldn’t get back home to pick Ocean upon time but Kalanie was so understanding. I would go back and use her service again with no hesitation. Thank you.”
