We'll treat your dog like our ownSaint Louis Park, MN

Dogs have always been a part of my life. I grew up on a farm where we raised Shih Tzus and often took in strays (who quickly became members of the family). I trained dogs for many years in 4-H, and now I can't imagine life without them. My husband {Kash} is also a huge dog lover, and we have a Beagle named Haley who loves visitors and especially enjoys playing with dogs of similar size (19 lbs). We recently rescued Cariña, an American Village Dog from the streets of Guatemala, and she too is loving life as part of a pack. Haley and Cariña come nearly everywhere with us, and one or both of us often worked from home over the years so Haley didn't get lonely during the day. {Now as a full-time dog sitter, I get to spend all day with Haley, Cariña and a pack of pups who aren't our own, but who we love just the same.} Your dog will get the same level of attention that we give Haley and Cariña, and rest assured they won't be left alone for long periods of time. Kash and I are excited to take care of your four-legged family member, and we will do everything we can to make our house their home away from home and make your time away have as little impact on them as possible!

We have both owned rescue dogs, and are experienced with all sizes of dogs including larger dogs. We have a large fully privacy-fenced-in backyard, and your dog will have full reign of the house and backyard.

Candlewood Canine Country ClubMinneapolis, MN

Welcome to Candlewood Canine Country Club! A Fun, Relaxing Vacation for your Dog!

Please check out my photos of just some of the many dogs I have hosted in my home!

I have several years of experience caring for dogs with many repeat guests.

Over the years I have also loved and enjoyed my own dogs and cats and they were a very important part of the family.

Owners have told me that their pets love coming to stay with me and are excited to be here!

With nearly an Acre, Plenty of Playtime for Dogs is available and there is lots of room to explore and play with a Very Large, Secure Fenced-in Backyard with a Locked Gate.

In warmer weather, there are plenty of shady and sunny spots to relax and enjoy the backyard!

Pets are treated with love and as part of the family!

There is a pet sofa in the living room right in front of the windows where dogs can relax, nap, bird and squirrel watch!

I can provide 24/7 care which means I can provide lots of extra love, care and attention as well as inside activities and outside playtime for your pets day and night.

Even though I provide 24/7 care, it is not meant for dogs that need constant supervision due to behavioral issues such as digging, marking in the house, housebreaking issues, Excessive barking, Excessive whining, jumping/scaling fences/escape artists, aggressive behavior, etc.

Very young puppies, Pit Bulls, Pit Bull mixes, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Huskies, Cattle dogs, any dogs mixed with the above breeds or aggressive dogs are not a good fit for me to host in my home.

It is important that dogs are a good fit here and that I provide a safe environment.

All dogs Must Be Vaccinated /current on their shots and on some form of Flea/Tick Prevention.

My home has 2 levels. Dogs have access to the upper level, the deck and the backyard so I can keep an eye on them at all times. My home is dog friendly and dog proofed.

I do not have any children.

My home is a smoke-free home and I am a non-smoker.

I live in a Minneapolis Suburb that is easily accessible from all directions.

We Love our Repeat Guests but also take in New Guests! We like to establish long term relationships with you and your dog!

Even though I do not have any of my own pets and my calendar shows I am available I usually have at least one dog here so if you know that your dog is not good with other dogs I will not be able to accommodate you.

Drop Off and Pick Up times are flexible and I will work around your schedule to meet your needs.

The Boarding rate/Drop off and Pick up times is based on a 24 hour period,

I send photos along with updates during your dogs stay!

Doggies loverEDINA, MN

I am from France and I moved to the US 6 years ago. I own 1 dog (unfortunately my yorkie passed away this April 2019 but I could not remove his pics from my profile) and two cats and they are definitely a part of our family and I could not imagine life without them. My Australian shepherd is a very submissive dog so I never had any problems of rivalry or conflicts with the other dogs I have hosted. In my childhood I have been always surrounded by animals (turtles, birds, dogs, cats, fishes, rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters). With my compassionate and caring nature, and familiarity with the needs of animals, I will provide the same amount of love, attention and care for your pets as I do it for my own. I have got experience with all types of breeds, size and background. I do not work so your dog will never be left alone and I will always make sure that he will be comfortable during his stay. I share a special bond with my furry friends ! You love him, I will too !

Dogs company breeds empathyBloomington, MN

EFFECTIVE: July 1st, 2019

Hello current and future Rover customers! I want to start by saying I have enjoyed the past two years, working with Rover, and building strong bonds with my repeat customers and their fur babies. Our dog, Luther has been a gracious and patient host and I credit nearly all of my business through Rover to him. We hope to continue our professional and reliable service to our customers for many more years to come.

However, I feel it is now time to create a solid business plan and schedule to better provide for my customers and their pets, as well as giving me the peace of mind that I am not overworking myself or Luther.

Boarding -

I will continue to offer boarding, which will have a set drop off time of 3 pm and set pickup of 12 pm/noon, the following day. Unless the stay is multiple days, then the pickup will be 12pm/noon on the final day of the stay. Boarding will no longer exceed 24 hours. I will provide a grace period of a few hours, but once we've reached 24 hours, you will need to pay for daycare. (If the drop off time of 3 pm and pick up time of 12pm/noon need to be modified, we can discuss that ahead of booking the stay.)

Daycare -

I will be limiting daycare stays to 8 hours per day. Anything beyond 8 hours will cost an additional $2.00 for each hour after exceeding the 8 hour daycare stay and that includes late pickups. (For example: If you need your dog at daycare from 6 am to 6 pm, there will be an additional charge of $8.00 for the extended 4 hours.)

These changes will also affect housesitting requests as well. I will start at 3 pm the first day and end at 12pm/noon the last day, not exceeding 24 hours. If my services are needed beyond 24 hours on the final day, there will be a drop in charge added to the booking.

I do want to apologize if the changes I am making result in you choosing another sitter or boarding facility. And I truly wish you and your fur baby or fur babies all the best. After doing some extensive research, I have come to the conclusion that this is the best option for my family and business. Thank you for your time and patience.

Active dog mom with great yardWenonah, Minneapolis, MN

I am a dog mom to 2 shih-tzu poodles, Maisy & Maiya who are 11 and 9. My partner (Martin) and I don’t have children but are very content with four-legged family members! I have done pet sitting for friends and family but decided to open it up for others in need as well. I have been a Rover sitter since April 2017 and have been enjoying every minute. We love to be active with our dogs, but also enjoying relaxing with puppy snuggles. Our yard is fenced in so the pups can run freely outside. I do daily walks as well.

I am a women’s health nurse practitioner and am off on Mondays. Martin is a ballroom dance professional and is off on Fridays.

Tuesday through Thursday I start work fairly early but Martin is home until the late morning with the pups, which allows for some flexibility with drop off and pick up.

I will try to maintain your dog's schedule and routine as best as possible. We welcome dogs on the furniture and in bed with us, although we will try to maintain whatever routine your dog is most used to.

We are minutes away from MSP and Lake Nokomis.

Please note changes for 2020:

My charges cover your dog for 24 hours of stay per Rover guidelines, which includes insurance and access to veterinary care.

If checkout time needs to be later than a 24 Hour period (example: drop off in early morning but pick up is late evening) I reserve the right to add a modified daycare rate of $18 to the booking.

*** My preferences list dogs between 41-100lbs but please note I actually only take dogs up to 50lbs***

Home all day! Let's Play!Folwell, Minneapolis, MN

I've always had dogs in my life; I can't imagine a day without them. Their empathy, warmth, and deep, lasting love is invaluable. In fact, my dogs were my greatest allies on the path to recovery after my car accident a couple of years ago. Charlie and Hank saw me through each challenge as I shifted career paths and became an artist: illustrating children's books, painting wildlife, and creating pet portraits. Love, communication, and unconditional support are the tenets of my care philosophy. I’ve been working with dogs since I was young, and understand and appreciate them on a deep, instinctual level.

My dogs were ecstatic that I work from home now and spend all day with them, but I felt like I needed something more. Dog-sitting is the perfect solution! Hank is very social, and loves having other dogs over to play--and I love getting outside and playing with them, too. It’s been the perfect way to transform hardship into a blessing. Charlie passed away over the summer from cancer. Michael is Hank's new companion and he wouldn't survive a day without a group of friends to wrestle and chase.

I own a small, dog-friendly house with a fenced-in yard and a great deck out back. It’s a wonderful place for pups to play! There's a dog swingset with toys hanging instead of swings, perfect for serious games of tug-of-war. I put out small pools in the summer which are Michael's prefered nap spots. My neighbors and their kids are dog lovers who are incredibly friendly and supportive. One neighbor is on call for emergencies, and stops by daily at the fence to give Hank his ear scratches! I live near the North Mississippi Trail, which Hank loves to explore with me. We stop along the way to let him lay in the river and swim after a stick. The area is gorgeous, with favorite places to walk like Webber Park and Victory Memorial Parkway. I’m located close to the Dowling exit on 94, so my place is easily reached for dropoff and pickup.

Hank, a Royal Poodle, is four. He’s tall, active, and exuberant. There isn’t a moment that his tail isn’t wagging, and he loves to follow me everywhere. He can be very mellow in the house and enjoys being around cats, people, and especially other dogs of all sizes! He has a fear of loud noises, thunderstorms, fireworks, and anything that in any way might sound like those. He has food allergies so we use carrots, cucumbers, apples, and broccoli for treats. His companion Charlie recently passed away, so he draws comfort from having new playmates.

Michael is two and could run all day. The best guess is that he is a dachshund mixed with some type of water-loving retriever. His favorite things are wrestling friends, chasing and being chased, and a good game of tug-of-war with another dog. He naps in the highest spots he can climb to and takes every oppotunity to get piggyback rides from people. With a weak bladder, Michael goes outside ever 1-2 hours and we take each oppotunity to play as much as we can!

I started caring for pups professionally at the age of twelve. I started with dog-sitting, then dog-walking, and competed in obedience and junior showmanship with my Basset Hound at the same time. I had her through my twenties, and I saw her through numerous slipped discs as well as ulcers and stomach cancer. Then, I adopted a Cocker Spaniel from a wonderful rescue group. He was albino and born deaf and I taught him hand signals, which he loved, until he also went blind--and then I taught him touch signals. I've administered medications, worked with dogs with limited mobility, and even used doggie diapers and monitored seizures. My last dog Charlie was a rescue with severe separation anxiety. I’m incredibly passionate about providing excellent care, and giving unconditional love to pups in need. Michael has a weak bladder and seperation anxiety. My patience, warmth, and dedication are unparalleled.

With years and years of experience, I’m the ideal sitter both for an elderly dog that’s slowing down and a young pup with boundless energy. I’m flexible, and since I work from home, I’m able to devote lots of one-on-one time to your dog! I do my best to make sure that everyone is going to have a good time every day--my dogs included. I’m attentive to everyone’s needs, and there’s plenty of love and playtime to go around.

Having all these adorable dogs running around, I can't resist doing drawings and paintings of them. So, if you’re interested, I’ll do a pet portrait when I need a break from current projects!
