Full time sitter, large fenced yardWarrenton-Harmitage Hills-Pinehurst, Lexington, KY

I pet sit full time so your pet will get lots of personal attention and playtime. I also provide dog walking services and home drop in visits so I may be gone 1-3 hours for weekday midday visits and the other odd appointment outside the home but the majority of my day is set aside to focus on the boarding pups. I work hard on scheduling so I can maximize the amount of play time for everyone each day. I never leave the dogs outside unattended. I'm always supervising their play and making sure that they are all having a great time while keeping them safe.

• MEET AND GREETS

Meet and greets at the boarding home are required before booking a stay. It provides you with an opportunity to see where your pet will be spending their time and to cover any questions that you may have. It provides us the opportunity to meet your pet and introduce them to our own in-house pets. During that time, we will be observing for comfort level and socialization. Meet and greets are scheduled 4-6:30 PM on weekdays.

• VACCINATIONS

Proof of standard vaccinations are required (Rabies, DAPP, and Bordetella) and should be provided at the meet and greet or previously messaged as a document photo.

• DROP OFF & PICK UP APPOINTMENTS

Drop-offs and pick-ups are schedule by appointment within the following windows of time. We do not take appointments outside of these windows so please keep the times in mind when scheduling your booking.

7 am - 9 am Sun-Sat

4 pm - 7 pm Sun-Thu

4 pm - 6 pm Fri-Sat

Although I board over the holidays, I do not schedule pick ups and drop offs Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas. I may also limit hours on other holidays as needed.

• SLEEPING & PLAY: We strive to make every guest feel comfortable and at ease. Your pup will be treated with the loving care that they are used to having and will have free run of the house unless we are not at home. For safety, we either separate them into different rooms or potentially may crate depending on the needs of the dog and whether they are crate trained. Play time and group behavior is closely supervised. If any dog shows signs of aggression, they will be separated for the remainder of their stay and will not be able to return.

• UPDATES: We provide daily photo updates. We will send at least one update a day but it may be multiple updates throughout the day. It just depends a bit on the weather and scheduling for each day. Please feel free to check in anytime throughout the day and we will let you know how your pet is doing. If you are traveling outside the country, we can send photos via email or WhatsApp to help avoid any messaging fees. We generally cut messaging off after 8 PM and respond to any missed messages after 7 AM the next day.

• FURNITURE: Visiting dogs have full access to furniture and beds unless they have restrictions at home. Just advise us during the meet and greet of your preference.

• FOOD: All dogs are separated at mealtime to avoid any food aggression and to ensure that everyone eats only the meal allocated to them. If you bring your own food, please bring only the amount needed for their visit in a sealable, labeled container.

• MEDICATIONS: We will administer any medications as instructed. Please make sure all medications are labeled clearly and written instructions for dosages are included.

• BELONGINGS: You are welcome to bring any belongings that will make your dog feel more at home but nothing is required. We ask that all belongings be clearly marked with the pet’s name so we can be certain that they are returned to you at the end of the stay. We will make every effort to make sure all belongings are returned to you clean and in good condition. Please be aware that toys and beds will be exposed to other dogs and may be damaged, destroyed or lost so please do not bring any valuable or sentimental items. We have plenty of bowls on hand that are sterilized daily so, unless your dog feeds from a slow feeder, there is no need to bring their own bowls.

• BATHS: We do restrict the dogs from playing in the mud on rainy days so they should be coming home relatively clean without a bath. However, we do offer a bathing service if you would prefer to have your pet returning home smelling fresh and sparkling clean. Generally, due to time constraints, we have to schedule baths the evening prior to their pick up but we try to do those closer to pick up time if possible.

o $20 for dogs under 20 lbs

o $25 for dogs over 20 lbs

• LEASHED: All dogs must be leashed upon arrival and pick up.

Large fenced in back yard!Southeastern Hills, Lexington, KY

I love taking care of dogs of all breeds and size! I enjoy walking them, taking mine to the dog park, or letting them play around in the back yard! My kids have been around dogs of all sizes all of their life. They are very loving with them and help take care of our own. I have raised dogs since I was little. I have had sitters as well for my own dogs and I understand the stress that dog owners go through and worry about the care of their own fur-babies. I will help to ease that stress and take good care of your loved ones while you are away. I am a teacher so I am off during the summer and holidays breaks.

Your pup wont even know you're goneGarden Springs, Lexington, KY

I have a passion for dogs. Dogs are family members and I feel like they should be treated that way. Dogs are my passion.

I have had dogs my entire life. I currently, have one dog who is 5 months old. Though I have experience with older dogs that have medical needs. I had an 11-year-old Golden Retriever who had health and mobility issues. I give him oral medications and insulin shots twice a day as well as pick him up frequently to take outside and back inside.

I also have experience with different dog personalities and breeds. I use to be the Social Media intern at a local dog daycare, so I have a lot of experience with many kinds of dogs.

I can't wait to meet your dog!

Home full timeLexington, KY

I’ve had dogs since birth. Love all the different personalities and levels of activities. Have had puppies as well as rescued older dogs. My latest dog rescue I adopted last September 2017 and ended up giving to my Dad who is in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s because he loved him so much.

Work from home full time. I am very flexible. Looking to fill my extra time doing something I love. Playing and caring for dogs.

We have a dog loving family. I live on a golf course in Greenbrier. Lots of great street walking. Can walk the dog on a the golf course paths in the early morning or late evening. Have a large yard that’s unfenced. Great lawn for throwing the ball.

Update 11/1/18- the bad review I received from Becca was due to her lying about her dogs. They were vicious pit bulls and had to have shock collars for which she never disclosed. Had she put that fact on her dogs profiles I would have never accepted the booking. She canceled 3 meet n greets and I should have insisted, but she had a bunch of excuses as to why along with stories about losing her job etc.

Looking back I feel like she was trying to make me feel sorry for her about her issues so she could book the stay. I was not going to put my family in danger because she decided not to disclose how dangerous her dogs truly are to people. She had to come pick up her dogs because they were destructive and dangerous. My reviews speak to the type of person I am along with my family. I told her many times that I was sorry but she should not have lied about the shock collars. I did refund her the entire amount cash and was out the Rover fees.

Will read to your dogsLexington, KY

I've been a dog owner for 10+ years. I love the big ones...my first true love was a long-haired German Shepherd. But as the current owner of a 35-lb mutt/bird chaser/pillow stealer, I know the little ones have spirit too. My house is full of kids (ages 6-13) who love animals, and we stay home to work and homeschool so there's always someone around to throw a ball, tug a rope or let the dogs out to go potty. We might even read them a good story. I am happy to send you pictures, videos and updates on your dog during their stay, especially if it's their first time staying at my house. When I travel I wonder how my dog is faring too and so it's nice to know if they are settling in and not feeling sad or lonely.

We rely on Glenn to come to our home to walk our dog when we go on trips. He is very professional and I trust him. He regularly sends photos so I know my dog’s being cared for. We lucked out as he was the first sitter we tried on Rover. We wouldn’t think of using anyone else!
