I cannot rave about Alyson enough!! She took care of our dog for over a week while we were out of the country. Prior to finding rover, we had a tough experience at a kennel so I was a little nervous about leaving him for so long. Alyson gave us total piece of mind with daily “pupdates” and lots of pictures! He got lots of exercise, went on outings, and allll the snuggles like he ...

Alyson took incredible care of our Lulu for a long weekend!!! It was the first time we had to leave her since she'd been rescued the year before, and it was such a relief to know that she was in such experienced hands. We loved all the photos and updates that Alyson sent us over the weekend! She also gave Lulu lots of exercise through neighborhood walks and in her wonderful backyard. She couldn't have ...

Alyson was amazing! She was my first experience with Rover and reassured me completely during my meet and greet! She has a large fenced in yard and baby gates throughout her home, so I knew my furbaby would be safe. She sent me about 15 pictures and a video during my dogs stay from Friday to Sunday! She was always quick to respond to my messages and updated me several times a day. Alyson took ...

I love dog breath! :-)

Hi there! Fellow dog lover here! I volunteer at Greenville County Animal Care and also foster for several rescue groups. I've been a dog owner for over 10 years and have 2 dogs who are "joint custody" dogs so they split their time between Greenville and Tampa (tough life, right?!, lol!). So when accepting Rover clients, my home is dog-less (and cat-less!) so if you have a dog who prefers to be the "only child" ...

What Alyson would like to know about your dog

I love details! What does your dog like and dislike? Do they like/want exercise? How much? What are their eating habits? Favorite naughty behaviors? Do they share the bed? There is no such thing as too much information when it comes to dog-sitting!

I work to be as accommodating as possible for my guests so please note that I base my charges off the dropoff and pickup times for boarding in my home and use Rover's 24-hour clock. 4 hours or less difference between dropoff time and pickup, no extra charge. 4-8 hours difference gets $10 charge for daycare. Please share with me your preferred drop off and pick up times when booking so that I can plan accordingly with other guests and avoid overlap. :-)

When Alyson watches your pet

Every dog is different! Just tell me what your needs are and I'm happy to accommodate. I'm no stranger to getting up early and walking and/or walking after work as well. I can tailor the route to accommodate your dog's activity level. :-)

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere he/she wants! Your dog is welcome on the bed and on the furniture. I also have a memoryfoam dog bed they can sleep on, and you're welcome to bring your own dog bed, blanket, etc.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work 8:30am-5pm during the week. I come home at lunch for playtime and potty breaks and am typically home after work no later than 5:30pm when I dog sit. I don't go back out when I get home. The evening is spent going on a walk, playing fetch, cuddling or whatever activities your dog enjoys the most. :-)

I do not work on the weekends so our weekends are typically very low key! If your dog is social and enjoys being out and about, I'd love to have them come along to any of the dog-friendly restaurants in the neighborhood!
