Home full time, large fenced yardEllendale, DE

I'm a retired college professor who has owned dogs and cats for more than 40 years. I own a small historic cottage with a large fenced-in back yard in a quiet area right off the major routes to the Delaware resorts (Lewes, Rehoboth, Bethany and other southern Delaware attractions). I've been dog-sitting for friends and relatives for many years.

Since I'm home all day, I can pay special attention to your pet's needs. I would be happy to accommodate any special dietary requests, administer medications and handle basic grooming and bathing. I adhere to your requested schedule for feedings and treats. I have a number of "special needs" guests (older or fragile canines, those who need constant supervision or have physical limitations) and I make every effort to assure their comfort and safety. In some cases, I may limit boarding availability to them only during their stay so I can provide one-on-one care.

All of my guests have free-range of the house unless crating is requested by the owner (e.g. puppies in training). Sleeping accommodations are whatever makes your pet comfortable: his own bed, his crate or my bed!

I provide regular check-ins and updates throughout your pet's stay via text or email. These include brief comments about your pup's feeding habits, play activity, any behavioral issues, etc.

"Meet & Greet" visits for new guests are highly recommended. These short visits allow us and your pet to get acquainted and provide an opportunity to discuss any specific needs prior to your first reservation.

Daycare here at the cottage is offered on a half or full day basis--great for when you plan a day trip and need short-term care. The daycare rate is for 12 hours, but drop-off and pick-up times are very flexible. Please note that the nightly rate indicated is for a 24-hour period e.g. 10:00 am to 10:00 am the next day. Additional charges may apply for delayed/late pick-ups or extensions. Custom quotes are available for these situations and for returning guests, long-term stays and multiple pets.

I focus on small to medium breeds and try to limit guests to two at a time. I will consider larger dogs, but will need to discuss before booking.

Regarding calendar availability: send me an email with your requested dates even if the calendar shows "Unavailable" or "Booked." I may still be able to accommodate your pet!

Finally, please make sure your pet is using a Flea and Tick medication. Our location here in Sussex county is known for heavy concentrations of these pests and I want to make your pet's stay as comfortable and worry-free as possible.

Home full-time & Large Fenced yardMilton, DE

Our family is experienced at this. We have been caring for dogs, cats, bunnies, and birds for about 30 years. We totally enjoy animals and welcome them in our home. We offer overnight and daycare options. We typically only board two dogs a time. If a customer has an emergency, we will do everything we can to accommodate their needs. We are just a few miles from Lewes/Rehoboth beach areas. We live in a community country setting. A huge fenced backyard for the dogs to get plenty of exercise. Therefore, there is no need to walk the dogs. For the summer, we have the cutest doggie sprinkler or a wading pool for those canines who really want to cool off. We offer outside play with all kinds of toys including everyone’s favorite, BUBBLES!

I have taken a short break from pet sitting because my dog, Ruffles, past away a few weeks ago. I'm now looking to get back into dog watching to help fill the void of missing Ruffles.

I provide the best care in hope that you will bring your dog back to me! All the dogs I've watched and boarded feel like my own during the time they are with me! So I really hope to see them again after their first stay!!

I provide daily photo(s) and updates. I always have my phone on me so I can be reached at any time during your pets stay!

Please reach out with any questions!

Dog Lovers!Harbeson, DE

Hello!! We moved to DE 3 years ago with our dog Chee Chee and absolutely love it! I work from home, so i'm available when you need me and can be flexible with your schedule. Chee Chee is a love bug and loves all dogs. She's a little on the older side, so she doesn't play as much as she used to, but definitely likes cuddling up with a friend or taking a nice walk side by side. We live in a great community with a nice size yard, our home is roomy and warm, and yes...dogs are welcome to lounge on the couch! Thanks for checking us out...we love all dogs, and we look forward to taking care of your furbaby :)) Brenda & Michael

Dogs home away from homeDover, DE

We have a large fenced in yard for your dog to run around and play. Our home is on a caldesac so we don't have a lot of traffic. We have plenty of places to walk your dog. I am a school teacher and my husband works from home so someone is home during the day to care for your dog. After school we have children who are excited to walk and play with your dog. Our children are 9, 12 and 13. They are great with dogs. We have owned family dogs in the past and we will care for your dog like he or she is our own. We would like you to bring any toys or comforts from home so your dog feels comfortable. We'd also be happy to provide pictures or video of your dogs stay. We would like your dog to be up to date on shots and flea free. We look forward to meeting you and your pet. Feel free to contact if you have any questions.

Aunt Dianne's Pup Pal HouseMilton, DE

I was working in the corporate world most of my adult life and felt I needed a change. I loved spending time with my two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Skippy and Jennifur (yes that's the way she spells it), so I decided to move into the pet business world. I started out working at a doggie daycare, that's where I found an interest in grooming dogs. This grow into my own pet sitting

business, taking care of both dogs and cats, this only expanded my love for all pets. Again, we were at a growing / changing stage and the little pet sitting business was a now a dog grooming / pet supply store, in Westchester County, New York. After some health issues and much soul searching my husband, Frank and I deciding to make an easier life so we moved on down to Delaware!! I have taken all that inventory and opened a on-line store: dogcatandbeyond, feel free to check it out. In November 2014 we had to say goodbye to our beloved Skippy. Our little girl Jennifur had special needs and in June 2015 she went to join her doggie brother. I have experience with administering meds for both my two babies and other dogs that have stayed with us, so if your dog has special needs that is not a problem. UPDATE: We now have a new Cavalier King Charles, he was born September 22, 2015 and his name is Mickey. He has brought new joy to our home. All dogs guests can hang out anywhere in our house. I encourage our doggie guests to bring their own beds so they feel more at home, but we have plenty of beds and furniture to sleep on : ). Some dogs like their crates, we can accommodate them too! Whatever make them feel more comfortable. My husband Frank and I love doggie company, so we are always looking for new friends to stay with us. You should come for a visit!!!

Huge park in walking distance!Magnolia, DE

All my life I have had dogs ranging from chihuahuas to mastiffs. So no matter the breed I am comfortable with the size. We have two dogs of our own, they are very spoiled, but well behaved. If you decided to intrust us with your fur babies, just know they will be in great hands. Our house is plenty big to run around in too. So if it happens to be bad weather they will still get exercise. My husband and I are on different shifts so someone will be at the house pretty much at all times. Also if your pet has dieatary restrictions or needs to take medication, I am comfortable with administering and following strict dietary rules. Thank you for choosing me.

Pet friendly home w/ large backyardFrederica, DE

I have an abundant amount of love for all animals. I have had pets of many varieties in my life for as long as I can remember. Any pet in my care would be treated as if they were my own. Lots of love, attention and care would be given throughout their entire stay. I will make them feel like they're at home. Anyone that allows me the opportunity to watch over their pets can rest assured that their pet would be well taken care of. I work from home and have plenty of time that your pet would need to distract them from missing their owners. My home consists of myself, my husband, my daughter and my son who welcomes the opportunity to help.

As I mentioned earlier I work from home so my hours are very flexible. I will work around your time. If for some reason something should come up I have an 18 year old daughter who would love to help me out.

I live in a one road housing development and I have a large yard. Behind my house is a farmer's road where I can walk the dogs. I also have a doggy pool so they can cool down on hot summer days.

Our cavaliers stayed with Joe over the weekend for the first time. All went well, Joe is a great guy and very organized and the dogs came home a little tired so I think they had a good time. They will definitely be staying there again.

Shelby loves going to Lisa's. Shelby typically has anxiety when going to a sitter or being away from me; but when she goes to Lisa's she comes back quiet and content. Lisa is accommodating to my ever-changing schedule and treats Shelby like a princess.
