Celebrating 5+ years on Rover.com!Pensacola, FL

Welcome. I provide petsitting and playdates in a knowledgeable and pet friendly and safe home environment.

I have been a pet sitter with DogVacay and Rover for over 5 years now. During this time, I have had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of wonderful dogs, enjoyed their company, and met their many great pet parents. I truly strive to give each guest a memorable and enjoyable stay while they are away from home. However, many dog parents have experienced "withdrawal" when their pups didn't want to leave their temporary, fun environment. My goal is a 5 star experience for all, and I have achieved a following with many returning pups.

In the past I have served as team leader and volunteer coordinator of the Pensacola branch of the Emerald Coast Golden Retriever Rescue, where I learned much about dog personality, their eccentricities, and providing an environment that promotes a stress-free, smoke-free, safe and happy experience while away from home.

In this capacity, I were responsible for the assessment, and intake of pups running the gamut from strays and pound pups to owner surrenders.

I've fostered dozens of pooches from various situations and many definitely needed more attention than others, and I found myself instinctively inclined to rely on help from Karma, my original Golden Retriever, who never met a dog she didn't love.

As a result, Karma and many foster babies trained me to provide basic training, socialization and trust, and the ability to find the best forever home for each individual rescue pup, based on the characteristic of both the fur baby and the adopting family. This included performing home checks, obtaining references from potential adoptees, and considering the full approval of our foster babies.

My Golden Retrievers have the sweetest personalities: Mia, who is 2 years old and Abbie, who is still a puppy As with Karma, they also have never met another dog they did not like and they are experts at making new dogs feel at home

In addition to many inside areas for lounging, we also have a room for kitties, bunnies, or other small pets who would rather not be bothered with the business of canines.

I also offer the service of bathing your friend to send them home to you fresh and clean.

I never overbook and always take into consideration the eccentricities of each individual guest so that we are able to provide each client with personal attention. Safety and security is a primary concern for me, and I always provide constant supervision of all pups during our frequent backyard visits.

During meet and greets, I always tell dog parents that the only requirement when bringing their dogs for stays is their regular food. If their pup would prefer their own bed (or anything else that would ease anxiety about being in a new place), that would be great. I also supply treats, unless the parent says no or if they only are only allowed treats from home. The pups will alway go home clean and happy!

I SPECIALIZE IN TDYs AND OTHER LONG-TERM STAYS.

Note to pet parents: I have never had a flea or tick infestation in my house or my yard. I take great precautions and regularly spray my yard with pet-safe insecticide. PRIOR TO YOUR PET STAY PLEASE ASSURE THAT YOUR PET IS UP TO DATE ON VACCINATIONS AND FLEA AND TICK PREVENTIVES.

Please contact me for a consultation.

Why I love dog sitting

I have loved and lived with dogs all of my life, and I have had experience with a wide variety of dogs and personalities. I say that I like dogs more than people - except people that love dogs as much as I do. I truly believe that to take another dog into my home, I am responsible for his/her total care and well-being as long as they are under my roof. Since I got my first Golden Retriever from a breeder, I became active with the Emerald Coast Golden Retriever Rescue and eventually became team leader for the Pensacola area. In this capacity I recruited foster homes, conducted home checks, and organized fund raising events. I fostered countless dogs and actually became a "foster failure" because I adopted two of our fosters who are the best Goldens in the world. They also love other dogs and will make them feel like they are part of the pack.

About my yard

I have a large, fully fenced back yard. There are large wooded areas with mature oak trees as well as open spaces perfect for playing and fetching.

My experience administering medication

I have had much experience in administering medications, both in pill form and injections.

Pets Need a Vacation Too 😁Pensacola, FL

I am a military spouse and an experienced pet caretaker for dogs, cats, and all cuddly critters. I have always loved animals and could never picture myself not being around them. Growing up I was always surrounded by different breeds of dogs and I have learned to appreciate each of their uniqueness. I am very comfortable with all sizes of dogs. I have watched many of my friends pets while they have been away and enjoyed the experience. I have also worked in a 24 hr Emergency Veterinarian Hospital so I am familiar and comfortable dealing with an emergency if one should arise. I would always treat your dog like it was my own and never give it less than my full attention. Having the chance to take care of other dogs while helping their owners feel comfortable knowing their safe gives me the best gratification possible. I just love dogs!

Large fenced in back yard!Chevalier, Pensacola, FL

Hi, I'm Kristen and I have been around pets for most of my life. I had my first pet which was a hamster when I was about 9 years old. After that I got my first dog, a German Shepard, ever since then I have always had a dog. I love being around animals and helping when I can. I have tile floors in all the common areas. I can section off areas in the house so that guests can have their own area to play, eat and relax. I have a large completely fenced in back yard. A typical day for me is playing with my dog when I am home from work. I am an elementary school tracher so I am unavailable Monday-Thursday due to me being gone majority of the days! On Friday I am available for boarding, drop-ins, and walks after 4pm. On Saturday and Sunday I am open for boarding, doggy day care, walks, and drop- ins. I do have a moderate cancellation policy. Unfortunately, I do not accept German Shepard due to them not mixing well with my dog. I look forward to meet you and your fur babies!

Life is fulfilled with pets in itPensacola, FL

Unfortunately I am not that great about talking about myself. And rover wants me to type out one hundred and twenty five words talking about myself. I have always found it easier if someone else is asking the questions. Animals are my true passion, always have been.And I have many years of experience with different breeds of dogs and I am comfortable with all breeds, shapes and sizes. So now I am down to about fifty five words - If you would like to know more or have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. I hope to look after your furbaby(s) in the near future. Okay I think I have my requirement of one hundred and twenty five words typed out.

Yia Yia's Pet CareGulf Breeze, FL

I am a retired medical professional. I always thought that now would be the time I could devote to a dog. My other retired friends all want me to travel with them. The best of both worlds, is me caring for your precious one and traveling too.

I live in a very pet friendly area of Tiger Point. Traffic is very minimal so walking dogs is very safe.

I have a three bedroom house, so plenty of room. If your precious one is crate trained, you are more than welcome to bring it.

I will accept early AM drop offs, but have an 8 PM deadline for pick up I realize emergiences occur, so I will be flexible, with communication.

Two sitters for the price of one!Pensacola, FL

We are open for pick ups and drop offs

between 9:30 am to 6:30 pm 7 days a week. Please send your pick up and drop off time when requesting a stay.

Your dog get lots of individual attention, walks, treats, and play time.

What makes us different from other sitters?

There’s two of us! We both work from home, so your dog is with a human all day.

Your dog is like a person with his or her unique personality and needs. We specialize in meeting their needs based on their personality.

How does it work?

~You want to make sure your dog is in a safe home. We offer meet and greets by appointment so you can meet us and our dogs. You also get to check out our large backyard.

~You expect that your dog will be fed without other dogs getting in his way. You bring your dogs food, and we ensure no other dogs eat it.

~You want to make sure your dog isn’t around aggressive dogs. We ensure that happens. We screen every dog and never take pups who've displayed signs of aggression. If your dog does not play well with other dogs, we won’t be a good fit.

We hope to meet you and your pup soon!

We are open for pick ups and drop offs

between 9:30 am to 6:30 pm 7 days a week.

More about us!

We have half an acre with a large fenced in back yard for your pup to run around in as well. We have a ton of dog toys, leashes, and beds to share with your pup.

We have three dogs of our own! They’ve brought joy and love into our lives for over 10 years. In 2016, we decided to open our home to help other pet owners like ourselves who need someone to look after their dogs they way we would want someone to look after ours. We’re dedicated to providing your dog with full time loving care!

Our dogs range from 4 years of age to 12 years old. Our 5 pound yorkie is a special needs pup with a liver shunt. She prefers to be in of our laps most of the time, but loves to chase the big dogs around. She prefers dogs over people. Willow is our big girl weighing in at 60 pounds. She's the sweetest and loves playing with other dogs. Her favorite activity is barking at squirrels. Rudy is our senior dog who likes to sleep most of the time. His favorite times of the day are breakfast and dinner. Our pack looks forward to meeting yours.

"Do I have to go home?"Pensacola, FL

I always had a dog or 2 in my life! They are my children and I learn so much from them. I have been involved with Lab Rescue when it was in the Pensacola area and have done volunteer work at the Pensacola Humane Society. Your furry buddy will be protected in my home and yard. They will have fun playing with whatever toy they like and learn new stuff if they are willing. Night time we chill out and watch TV. I want them to have fun and be stress free! My goal is for them to want to come back!
