Our Buddy has been lovingly cared for by Carmen and family for the last 5 years. They are so happy to welcome him and he is SO excited to see them! We are completely happy and relaxed knowing he is in such good hands, and really look forward to getting his pictures along the way. NEVER hesitate to contact Carmen if you have the need for the very best of care for your dog! Jan ...

Thank you so much! Buddy is part of the family and we are sad when he leaves!

Love having Carmen care for our dog when we are away. He really seems to enjoy being there and I know he is loved and happy there, as Confirmed by all the awesome pictures and notes she sends me while he is with her and her family. They are the best!

Thank you! We adore Hayden and always look forward to his visits!

Big, fenced yard/couch snuggles

We have been dog parents for 13 years. Our family includes one dog, Luke (a 9-yr old beagle mix), rescued through ADOPT (Animals Deserving of Proper Treatment), who has never met another dog he didn't like.

After a wonderful experience boarding our own dogs with a sitter we found on Rover.com we decided to join the organization.

My husband and I are both teachers so during the school year our weekdays begin early, but someone ...

What Carmen would like to know about your dog

Where does your dog sleep? Our dog prefers to sleep in his crate at night.
Is your dog is young and energetic? Our dog is older and docile, so our house may not be the best fit.

When Carmen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks

Your dog will be walked once to twice per day, depending on your request, but will be allowed outside as many times as he/she asks to go. Our yard offers lots of off-leash play and moving-about space so there are times s/he will be sent outside for some group fun with our two dogs.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement

Your dog will sleep in our kitchen/family room with our dog, who is crated at night. This is the most active room in the house and ensures the most people-time. It is your choice whether or not you wish to have your dog crated.

Time I'll spend with your dog

During the school year our dogs are greeted in the morning around 5:30am and are part of the family's morning routine until 7:00. They are home alone until 3:45, but I work close to home so if your pet needs a midday potty break that can easily be arranged (for stays of less than one week). From 3:30 until we go to bed at night, usually around 10:30, your pet will be an integral part of everything we do.

During the summer, someone is home at all times so your pup will never be alone for longer than a visit to the grocery store.
