We love Loretta! She is the first person that we contact when we need a sitter for our dog, Shadow. I never wonder or worry about him while we are out of town. He always comes home happy and tired from playing with Loretta’s dog, Max. She has also done some drop-in sitting for our cats and has been great at that as well. Highly recommended.

I could not sing Loretta's praise loud enough! We have never boarded our two puppies, so this was a big step for all of us! Loretta was fantastic in all respects-very easy to connect with; prompt with replies and support; loved on our two dogs as if they were her own; sent loads of photos that we really enjoyed and just made this experience such a breeze! I will most definitely send our doggies to ...

Bring on the LOVE!!

My husband & I are dog lovers so when we heard that we could host dogs to stay overnight, we jumped at the chance! We live in Del Ray, have a huge fenced courtyard where we take Vegas (our 9 yr-old Golden). We do not have any children & are home most days, nights, & weekends. Vegas is very easy going and is frequently socialized at the Del Ray dog park.

Why I love dog ...

What Loretta would like to know about your dog

Would like to know if your pup has experience with other dogs and/or been with other Rover sitters, that is the only requirement - Good Dogs are good with other Good Dogs

Just a note on obedience though:
If during your dog's stay, they misbehave, become sick, has a anxiety attack that affects the well being of our dog or another dog in our care, you will be asked to provide an alternate location to bring them, or we will be charging double for the stay to cover a facility nearby. For 1st time stays > 5 days, we require a Meet & Greet & a Test Stay.

Emergency stays:
Stay requests with less than 48 hr notice will be at the higher rate of $50/night because of the extra work it takes to coordinate adding another pup. If the emergency stay request goes over a holiday, the rate is $60/night.

When Loretta watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks --> We walk around our neighborhood here in Del Ray. Peaceful, quiet, & full of dog lovers!!

We take lots of pictures of our dogs & are happy to email or text pics of your fur babies while they're with us.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Where ever he/she would like or is used to. We don't force our dogs to sleep anywhere in particular & usually they end up in our room. You dog is welcome to sleep anywhere they feel comfortable.

I work from home most days, so the dogs get my undivided attention ... except when I'm cooking dinner, then I have their undivided attention : )
