Doggie HeavenMalabar, FL

Starting in January 2019, we will be reducing the number of dogs that will be staying in our household to 2 per day. Until we are able to be home fulltime, we feel like this will benefit both the dogs and us!

We live on a 2.75 acre fenced-in piece of property. It has a pond with fish that our dogs love to play in/with! We allow the dogs the freedom to stay in or out using a doggie door, but keep them inside at night. Big dogs are no problem!

Our children have moved out, so our dogs are now the kids we spoil. Any dog that stays here has a blast running and crashes at the end of the day due to so much playing and swimming! Dogs that stay here leave in much better shape than they arrive!

** NEW ADDITION:

We have installed a separate fenced in area behind the house. This allows us to separate pups according to size or temperament. We are excited about this new feature to provide a safe environment for all the pups staying with us!

Your dog will be treated as part of our family. We live by the pack mentality.

We are here 24/7 on the weekends and home by early afternoon during the week.

We will abide by the dog owner's normal patterns for their dogs, ie. the dogs will sleep where they normally sleep at home, eat at the same time etc. The dogs are welcome to sleep on the furniture or we can provide a kennel if they are used to that.

Small to large dogs welcome.

Puppies or seniors too!

We will accommodate your dogs and make them feel like a part of our family.

Royal getaway for your loved ones!Rockwell Estates, Merritt Island, FL

Welcome to Yvonne’s Canine Castle, and that is not a misnomer because here, all of my canine guests are treated like royalty. Please check out my Facebook page.... It also has a book it button that will bring you right back to Rover.

ALL reviews are Verified Stays at the Castle. Please also check out updated photos on my facebook page YvonnesCanineCastle.

I am a long time animal lover. My normal habitat includes two dogs, one cat and two birds, and they are all very spoiled.

Our labs love to play Frisbee in our big back yard and they have established spirited rapport with their new canine companions. Their favorite activity is swimming in our large pool and they quickly introduce new friends to their water sports…if the guests’ humans allow. If not, we can easily block it off.

When you leave your pets in my care, you can be assured they will get the utmost care and attention, and most of all, a lot of loving.

During my two years in business, I had the privilege of welcoming 96 different dogs and nearly two-thirds of them were repeat guests. And I am very proud of the various complimentary postings:

“Fantastic! Bailey, our 14 year old lab, has separation anxiety ever since we had to put her sister down a few months back but Yvonne was caring enough to understand and take phenomenal care of her! I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a truly caring person to take care of their " children"! Thanks Yvonne for taking such great care of our old girl while we enjoyed our family!”

…Terry F

“From the minute we met Yvonne we knew we found someone who would treat our dogs like family....the way we do! She is a terrific person and her husband is a great guy....together they make a fantastic team providing an awesome home away from home for our dogs. If you are in the need of a responsible, caring and just all around great person to care for your pups while you are out of town....don’t hesitate....book Yvonne! You won’t regret it! We know that we will definitely be booking with her again when we need to go out of town and can’t bring our pups with us.” …Anthony B..

“I absolutely loved Yvonne! She took such great care of my dogs. They were well cared for and loved. My dogs couldn't be more different from each other. One is my anxiety dog and constant watchdog and he never left her side which meant he was totally comfortable. My second dog is my playful puppy and she had a great time running in the yard till she was exhausted. I will definitely use Yvonne again! Thank you so much!” …Rebecca G..

“Yvonne makes pet care much easier. We do not want to leave Fey just anywhere when we travel or away for the day. Yvonne's convenient location, reasonable pricing, and excellent care make the Canine Castle the perfect choice for pet daycare and boarding. Fey has a great time with Yvonne and her gang.” …Sally P.

“I drive out of my way to leave my Rio with Yvonne. He is always well cared for, exercised, and I even receive photo updates and status notes during his stay.”

…Justin C.

“Amazing. A home away from home for my dog. Yvonne sent pictures of how Brandi as doing and I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my pup was having one of her own.” …Jamie W.

"My dog had another great visit with Yvonne this past weekend!! Yvonne's place is like a little slice of doggie heaven for her!!! Yvonne definitely spoils her!! Thanks to Yvonne for taking such good care of her so we can have piece of mind while away!" Danielle S.

Most of my human clients are from the local or Florida area, in January, we welcomed two new canine guests from the midwestern U.S. whose humans were getting married here, we also have many clients coming in town for cruises. All of which adapted comfortably with our habitat.

Whether it’s a vacation trip, visit with loved ones, a cruise, or just a long weekend away, let me care for your loved ones for the best pet service you can get.

You can always check with me if my calendar doesn't agree with the dates you are looking to book.

Home Away From HomeFairview Estates, Melbourne, FL

We have a huge fenced back yard and pool in which we spend time with guests to prevent accidents inside. ***Please let me know if your pet can't swim or doesn't like water AND/OR if he/she will dig or shimmy under a fence to escape so I can be on ultimate alert.

No size or breed refused as long as they are compatible with other dogs/animals. I have cared for Stella the Great Dane to Jax the miniature/teacup Chihuahua. I have owned various types of animals, so if you have a unique animal, ask, I might be willing as long as Rover approves, as I am HAPPILY contracted through them! ***PLEASE NOTE that Rover can book up to 3 boarders as well as 3 daycare guests (6 total) at a time with me. Fees are per animal, per night. I do not charge a cancellation fee.

***We only ask that everyone is housebroken, up to date on vaccinations, flea free and have no destructive behavior - No exceptions - This includes marking - Thank you for your understanding.***

Boarders have free roam but if a crate is utilized in your home, please provide one for the times I have to go out if that will serve as potty prevention. I do have to get out from time to time for errands, family events, and typical appointments.

Rufus is our happy, go lucky, mixed breed that we adopted from the South Brevard Animal Shelter in 2012. He is excellent with everyone, including children and other animals, as well as cats. Gus was adopted from Craig's List. He is mild mannered, sweet, playful, affectionate and also outstanding with other guests.

We have safe routes for walks and will love your babes and do our best to make them comfortable while you are away so you can rest easy.

Leave Your Furbaby Without WorryMelbourne Beach, FL

I have had dogs of all shapes and sizes as family members for four decades. I work in rescue and foster, treating each and every pup with love and kindness. I offer pet sitting in your home where your furbaby(ies) feel safe and comfortable. I am available to check on your pup(s) throughout the day/evening giving them the attention they need and deserve so that you may enjoy your time away from them without worry.

* Please contact me regarding questions/quotes on additional dogs in home.

Why I love dog sitting

I have been a dog lover for as far back as my memory serves me. My first family dog was a spunky little Chihuahua named BamBam who traveled around the country with us when I was 2-5 years old. From 5 years old on, I lived with my grandparents and can not ever remember being without, at least, 2 dogs in the house...from Chihuahuas to Poodles to Great Danes to Old English Sheep Dogs...every age and every size. My grandmother loved any and every animal. I also grew up with cats, goats, sheep, horses, parrots and even a chimpanzee (photo attached of Sweet Mary and me). In college, I adopted my first 'very own' Siberian Husky puppy who I named Olas (I was surfing competitively at the time hence the name 'waves'). She quickly became my best friend and we were inseparable. She traveled cross country with me, and my husband at the time, every summer. We moved to Colorado and added two more Huskies to the pack spending hours hiking in the mountains. While working as a paramedic, I adopted an Australian Shepard that I had planned to train in search and rescue until I became pregnant and we moved back to Florida. After the loss of my last Husky, I thought I would 'take a break' and live pet-free for awhile. That lasted an entire 3 weeks. A couple of days after Christmas, our big boy Duke left the shelter and joined our little family. About a year after he was adopted, I became active in rescue. We brought in our old boy, Einstein, for a weekend sleep over and he never left. Unfortunately, we recently had to say good-bye to Einstein due to old age. My goofy boy, Achoo, came in as a foster off of the streets of Miami and has become my first official foster fail. I have many fosters come through our home on their way to finding loving fur-ever homes. I, also, transport and volunteer in many areas of rescue.

My experience administering medication

Yes, I am comfortable administering medication. I, often, have to with many of the fosters I take in.

In Home Pet Sitters - Camp YogiMelbourne, FL

Hi,

My name is Darlene . My home is known as Camp Yogi. Camp Yogi was named after our crazy ball catcher and pool swimming, Golden Retriever, Yogi Bear. Our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever named Ruby, is the social director at Camp Yogi. She is a social butterfly and will show all the others how to play at camp. We are set on 1/3 acre completely fenced in with many trees, flowers, doggie pool, and the most hypoallergenic real grass you can get in Florida. You will be temped to stay too! Sorry only friendly furry friends.

I also offer free transportation to and from Camp Yogi for daycare or overnights within 10 miles. I carry commercial car insurance that covers your pets when transporting them .

We also are capable of keeping the little dogs separated from the larger dogs. Because I have a 6 lb Yorkie (Buddy) that is very playful, some dogs will be refused if I feel they will hurt the smallest of my pack. Please understand it is only because I care so much for my little guy.

I am city and county licensed too.

Animals come first in our homePalm bay, FL

***COVID-19 UPDATE***

WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING BOARDING CLIENTS HOWEVER IF YOU BOOK WE ARE REQUIRING OUTSIDE DROP OFF ONLY. THE ONLY ITEMS WE WILL ACCEPT ARE COLLAR, HARNESS, LEASH AND FOOD INSIDE TUPPERWARE CONTAINERS SO WE CAN DISINFECT THEM. YOUR PET WILL ALSO RECEIVE A BATH UPON ENTRY TO OUR HOME. WE WILL NOT ALLOW ANY BEDDING, BOWLS, TOYS, CHEWS, ETC AND WILL PROVIDE THEM INSIDE OUR HOME. AT PICKUP WE WILL BRING YOUR PET OUTSIDE TO YOU. WE HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND OUR UPDATED POLICY DURING THIS TIME, IT IS INTENDED TO KEEP US HEALTHY AND SAFE TO CONTINUE TO SERVE YOU.

READ EVERYTHING BOARDING NOTES ARE INCLUDED.....

Anything that comes with your pet will be labeled with a small sticker with their name. They are easy to remove but can get more stuck to porcelain bowls and paper. Your dog will be fitted with a harness on arrival if one is not provided for the duration of their stay. All dogs are walked double leashed through harness and collar. If you provide a crate, blanket, bedding, towels, etc we will wash everything before it is returned to you to ensure no contamination carries to your home. We try as much as possible to keep these items separate between families however sometimes dogs/cats form a bond with each other and like to snuggle while they are here. Your pets will be placed in separate rooms during all feedings to not encourage fights. Only pets from the same family will remain together unless restricted by owner. We do not allow chew bones, rawhide or other long lasting chew items for daily use to reduce the risk of property possession aggression. You must bring your pets own food. You are more than welcome to bring bowls but we keep a supply of them and disinfect them through the dishwasher with kennel disinfectant tabs after each feeding.

We own an animal rescue transport organization where we help save dogs and cats from shelters and get them safely to rescues all over the country so they can be adopted into loving homes. We have a high level of experience with dog and cat safety inside and outside a home. Being around dogs and cats makes us smile. We have cared for dogs and cats since we were very young. If we can help make your dog happier for you when you're not home that makes us happy. We do not tolerate animal abuse and would care for your dog just as much as we care for our own dogs. We are experienced with puppies and adults as well as basic training of dogs. We transport and walk dogs according to our own requirements of our organization for maximum safety and comfort.

**WE WILL BOARD DURING HURRICANES BUT BE AWARE WE WILL REQUIRE AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE OF 30$ PER DOG PER DAY. IF WE INTEND TO EVACUATE WE WILL LET YOU KNOW 12 HRS IN ADVANCE AND YOU WILL NEED TO COME GET YOUR DOG. IF YOU DO NOT COME GET YOUR DOG WE WILL TAKE YOUR DOG WITH US AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES WILL APPLY BASED ON ROOM CHARGES FOR PET FEES.

I have a passion for animalsMelbourne, FL

I love all animals, especially Dogs. All I want to do is share my love with your pets as well as my own. I work from home, so Im never away for any lenght of time. Dogs love to be loved, I can give them that. I walk them (always on a leash). I have had several repeats, and when they come in my home its like their home away from home. I will give them the same attention & care as I would my own dog "Motley", he is a 9 year old Mastiff, and he is not agressive in any way. All dogs are fed in different rooms & in alphabetical order. Motley, just sniffs every dog that comes in & retreats to his chair. I loved volunteering @ the Human society, helping out there, great place.

Love is a four-legged word!melbourne, FL

I have been caring for pets all my life, I have learned how to keep them content and to keep their little tails wagging! In my care they can run and play to their heart's content! I offer tons of toys and treats and am able to work on some manners and skills with them if you so choose. I am adamant about getting outside for some exercise and sunshine and would love for your floofer to join me! I have a variable schedule so I generally have a quick response rate and am happy to plan meet and greets based the convenience of your schedule (: If you have any questions feel free to ask and I look forward to getting to know your puppy!
