5 stars! Desmond is great with my doggie! I recieved pictures throughout her doggy day stay and she was so exhausted from her day she fell asleep in the car on the way home. She is looking forward to more days with Desmond.

Hi there! My name is Desmond. I'm 36 and live here in Eugene, OR. I had 2 dogs of my own for over a decade (the big guy looked and acted like Marmaduke, no joke), so I'm very enthusiastic about dogs and their care. I donate 3% of my Rover ...

When Desmond watches your pet

I do numerous activities with dogs in my care. I toss a tennis ball or frisbee for dogs who are into that. Also, we have 2 kiddy pools for dogs to cool off in, If your four-legged friend likes car rides, those can happen occasionally too :) And as long as you and your dog(s) are ok with it, a dog park visit is always a possibility (I have a minivan, so your dog will stay dry and comfortable during transport). With most dogs, an exhausted dog is a relaxed, happy dog, so I tend to focus on having the dogs play with each other as well as me in our amazingly landscaped big back yard (haven't met a dog who has complained about the yard or the level of activity here yet). For cold, wet days we have a covered back porch and a heated garage so that dogs can stay dry and warm. Of course, they still have access to the yard if they feel like gettin' a bit muddy for fun too!
