Elaine is very much an intuitive dog person. We could tell our dog Buddy was immediately comfortable with her!

Dog RESCUER & LOVER; home full time

I will treat your dog as part of my family. They are welcome on my furniture and bed. I will not put your dog in a crate unless you request me too. I am home almost full time (work from home) so I will be here to keep your dog company, play with them and show them lots of love. I am very flexible with my schedule so I should be able to accommodate your ...

What Elaine would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about your dogs temperament, their potty habits and any possible marking, if they have any aggression issues or triggers during walks etc, if they have any health issues, if they have any food constraints, when and what they eat, what they like to do and where they sleep etc.

Please make sure you have updated your Rover profile to list who your vet is and what your emergency contact info is . Also please fill out the "Care Instructions"

When Elaine watches your pet

I will take your family member on walks around my residential neighborhood. I will play with your dog and show them lots of love (snuggles, butt scratches and belly rubs) I have a lot of various types of dog toys in my home for them to play with. I will walk your dog 3x per day.

Dogs in my home must be properly potty trained. If your dog marks or has accidents I can still take the if you bring belly bands/diapers. They also must be able to behave on a leash (no excessive dog aggression and/or severe pulling/jumping etc)

-DOG BOARDING is 24 hours maximum pr night with the latest pick up at 9:30pm. Earliest drop off is 7:30am If you need more than 24 hours you can add a day of doggie day care to extend the say.( latest pick up is 9:30pm) If you want to pick up past 9:30pm you would need to purchase another night of boarding and pick up the next morning. Rover considers stays that extend into the next calendar day to be boarding.

-DOGGIE DAY CARE is based on regular daytime working hours pr Rover guidelines. Maximum stay for day care is 11 hours. My earliest drop off is 7:30am. As a customer courtesy, if you do a late drop off I can extend the latest pick up is 9:30pm. If we want to pick up past 9:30 pm you would need to purchase dog boarding instead and pick up the next morning. Rover considers stays that extend into the next calendar day to be boarding.

-HOUSE SITTING: When I house sit I will need to bring my own dog to your residence UNLESS you live with in a few blocks of my residence and then I can come and go between both places. House sitting charges is pr night with the maximum of 24 hours pr night.

-DROP IN VISITS: I only take clients that are within walking distance to me (within 1/2 mile or so) I will play/visit with your dog and also take them out on a short walk. I can give food and water etc during this time as well. I will stay past the listed 30 minutes. Earliest is 8:am, latest is 8pm

-DOG WALKING: I only take clients that are within walking distance to me (within 1/2 mile or so) I do not walk your dog in a group of other dogs. I walk your dog(s) by themselves (if you have more than 1 dog in the household they will be walked together but no other dogs from other households will be walked with them). Earliest is 8:am, latest is 8pm

SPECIAL NEEDS: Administration of sub Q fluids or injections will result in an additional charge.

*please note that since 2015 it is REQUIRED BY LAW that all dogs over 6 months in the City of Long Beach be spayed and neutered. If you need financial assistance or to receive low cost services contact Snip San Pedro or Fix Long Beach. LB Animal Care also gives minimal assistance with $30 vouchers. (not a recommendation of these services just providing info)

I DO NOT takes dogs that are not spayed/neutered
