Dale's Pet Service LLCGandy-Sun Bay South, Tampa, FL

I am located in south Tampa, very close to Gandy & Dale Mabry. I am available for drop offs and pick ups between 7 AM to 10 PM every day. I am very close to MacDill AFB and I give discounts to the people stationed there.

I have over 20 years experience of boarding dogs at my house. I fostered dogs for two rescues for several years before deciding to make a career out of it. I have five dogs myself, three of them are beagles.

I have been a certified dog trainer since 2007 and I will work on most issues a dog has while I board them at no extra charge. I use positive reinforcement training only, I strongly believe it is the most effective way to train a dog. My main goal is to make sure dogs enjoy their visit and are well cared for and safe.

I successfully completed the American Red Cross cat & dog first aid class on 08-02-2015.

I have several clients who leave their dogs here often and it's like their second home to them and I love them like they are my own dogs. I have a patio area and a large back yard for the dogs to enjoy. People often ask me where their dog(s) will sleep at night and I tell them wherever they feel the most comfortable. Very often that is in my bed, especially for dogs on their first few visits.

When I have to leave my house for any reason my 26 year old son watches the dogs for me. I am rarely gone for more than two hours, and many days I don't leave at all. I like to tell people I'm under "canine house arrest".

I have had a diabetic dog before and so I am used to giving insulin injections. I will also make sure a dog takes any medication they are on. One of my regulars requires eye drops twice a day.

The only thing you need to bring for your dog is food, medicine and a proper fitting regular collar. No crates, dog beds, toys or bowls please.

I prefer not to have dogs dropped off at night for their first visit. It is much easier for a dog to get a chance to explore their new surroundings and become familiar with the other dogs during the daytime. After the first visit, dogs are fine with being dropped off at night.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Important: I will not board a dog who is not spayed or neutered or one who does not get along well with other dogs. When requesting a meet and greet or reservation please let me know if your dog is spayed or neutered and if they are friendly with other dogs.

Why I love dog sitting

I have loved dogs all my life and have never been without one for long. I fostered about 50 dogs for the two rescues I was on the board with. All of my dogs are former foster dogs or adopted after their owners passed away. They are all great dogs and they are happy to meet new dogs.

About my yard

I have a large back yard that is secured with a six foot fence and heavy duty wire buried at the bottom. I used to have a beagle who was a escape artist so my yard is "Buddy proof". There is a large oak tree in the yard and more shade on the side of the house. There is a doggie door so the dogs are free to come and go as they like.

My experience administering medication

Yes. I have had a diabetic dog and have taken care of one so I am used to giving insulin injections. I often have dogs who are on medication and I have no problem giving them to them. I take care of a senior dog who requires three different types of eye drops twice a day.

Your dog's vacation home!Riverview, FL

Reserve your dogs vacation now while you are booking yours ;-) There is a collage book with my fun filled year of petsitting where you will see tons of happy and comfy pets I've cared for. Just ask and I will send you the info to see the book! Currently working on next one!

So many of my clients bring their dogs back again & again because they are so comfortable at my home & have officially made my home their dog's vacation home! I have a fenced in backyard for the dogs to play & run around as well as go for walks in Summerfield Crossings.

FYI Holiday rates are slightly higher.

My rates are extremely reasonable considering the love & care they receive when at my home. Some clients have moved away & still bring their pets to me from Orlando, Sarasota, & St. Pete/Clearwater area. Why not call them and ask them why??? ;-)

Having your pet in a friendly, secure & loving atmosphere is essential to having a happy & healthy pet when you return. We are a family of petsitters so whether it be myself, Allie, my parents etc. they will get spoiled rotten!

So why not let your pet have a great vacation too and make a friend or two also!

Reservation's rate increase could apply prior to the 1st night and/or after the last night, depending on drop off and pick up times. For example, if you dog is with me all day FRI, SAT, & SUN that's 3 full days, NOT just 2 nights. Basically, if your pet is with me part of the day then I will only charge you for that, fair enough?? Think of it as if you worked 2 days you would get paid for 2 days, or 2.5 if you worked 2.5 days.

Please contact me ONLY if you are seriously considering booking. Contacting multiple sitters will unnecessarily clog our calendar blocking other potential dogs that need a vacation too!

My home is NOT kennel facility & I do not operate as one. You will see the difference yourself & understand why so many pet parents are choosing a warm & loving home vs a cold kennel facility!

*Doggy Daycare available ONLY to existing loyal clients*

*Housesitting rate includes watching your pet in your home & this more of an 'exclusivity rate' as I cannot easily board dogs in my home if I am in yours! ;) This rate is comparable to having 3-4 visits to your home except you pay a lil more to actually have someone in your home overnight vs your dog seeing sitter at visits only. This is not ideal for all so contact me only if seriously interested in booking.

*note dogwalking / visits will be completed at time requested within a 2 hr window.

6 to 8 am visit

Ex. You request 7 am so I will always strive to be there right at 7 but could be 6 am, or 730 or 8 am. Your flexibility is appreciated!

I only accept a few clients at a time, so book early if your plans are solid ;)

*exception is if your pet has diabetic needs where it's imperative a shot is given on time.

*copy of shot records required at meet n greet

We cannot wait to hear from you soon and make your family a part of ours.

I LUV dogs very much and all animals in general. Since I can not have any more dogs I would love to have some furrry frrands over to play with my dogs.

I will spoiled them and care for them like if they are my very own. They can watch tv on the couch, or sleep in my bed with me. Long walk or just play and run around in the court yard of my community. Also few trips to the doggie park. I will spend lots of time with them. If they are well behaved, sometimes I will bring them to work with me. They will be spoiled by my co-workers too.

Lotsss of kisses, belly rubs and homemade treats.

Our home is your pet's home. Riverview, FL

I started caring for animals at a very young age watching neighbors pets and friends of the family. My love and passion for animals has allowed me to take that passion and turn it into not only a business but a place where your pet feels loved and at home. The biggest compliment I receive is when clients tell me their pets are happier to see me than them! Taking care of pets especially dogs is not a job but a passion for me. My family has a love of animals and it has become a family affair caring for four-legged friends.

Dogs are like BabiesBrandon, FL

If you are looking for a sitter that will take care of your dog as if it was you and know that he will not care or need for anything while you are gone. This is the place YOU NEED. I Love to doggy sit. This is not just any job. I do this because I love pups, I believe and I know that I'm totally great for your babies because they would get special love, care and attention just like a child would. I will spoil them :)

Thanks for taking your time reading everything.

My entire life is about pets, all sizes and types. I am an animal lover and I would love to take care of yours like if he/she was my own. I am very dependable, reliable and professional. I do get attached to all dogs in a matter of hours and they do too. We will love each other like if we met ages ago. You'll see it when you come to pick him/her up.

I own crates, but they are meant for my pups to stay in only during the night, we have one baby gate, it’s a fake door that I use near the entrance door, to avoid dogs from running away. Your dog is free to run in the house as they would at their home. MI CASA ES SU CASA :)

Your dog will never be put in a cage overnight (unless you bring his own and you want me to do it).

PET PARENTS:

First time booking will get a lower price, (unless you're going over 3 nights) for second timers the price will be moderate or not change since they already have an idea of what I do, Loyal customers will get especial treatment, YES YOU WILL!

Example:

* Last minute cancels. ( I will do anything to make sure you have a full refund, just remember to be extra careful with cancellations, sometimes I can't make it happen)

* If you need me ASAP (same day stay) I will be available unless I got my spots covered, I will try to help you look for some of my fellow sitters if that’s the case, one of them is in Ruskin. If you can’t trust anyone but me or if I can't find anyone, I will make space for you. Unless I'm not home, if I am traveling your only choice would be my other sitter, which is my mom.

Pictures will be taken and sent to the pet parents upon request, via Rover. (The only requirement is a review after EACH stay!) It helps me, so that I get to meet more wonderful pups, it will also help other pet parents in need of a sitter and of course they will definitely book with me based on your kind words. :)

Walks are either 15 minutes to 1 hour, we can run or walk depending on your pup’s daily basis or needs. If he can't walk 15 minutes or more, you can tell me how much time he can walk and I will totally do it.

I can provide toys, food bowls, also beds... I will ask you if you prefer to bring your own, I don't provide food, due to allergies, when it comes to material things, usually some doggies are not tooo happy about getting new stuff, especially if they are staying in a new house... I WILL FOLLOW THEIR SCHEDULE!!! I want them to feel at home, like if nothing has really changed. So I will need to know what they usually do at your house so they do it at mine as well.

QUESTIONS THAT I WILL ALWAYS ASK.

Please have your answers ready for the meet and greet. If you are new and had a last minute booking with me, please answer these questions in a message.

• At what time does he eat?

• How many times a day does he eat?

• How many cups of food does he eat?

• How long does he go on walks?

• Is he potty trained?

• Does he like other dogs or kids?

• Is he aggressive about toys, his bed or food?

• Is he allergic to anything?

• Does he need any medication? If so please provide the full info.

Thanks for choosing me! I cannot wait to hear from you and make your family a part of mine

Why I love dog sitting:

I had a Doberman since I was 5, we would spend all the time together, but he died when I was 12, he was also 12, someone killed him to get into our place, I cried sooo much, I didn't even want to have more pets after that, he was my best friend, before he died I remember bringing home all the dogs I saw on the streets, I gave them food and water. When I got older I realized I could use all the love I have in my heart to help other dogs who needed me or someone to rescue them... So I helped a Shelter with a puppy called Benna, she had the distemper virus and for some reason she couldn't be around other dogs, so I offered myself to be her foster parent until she got cured :) we spent together a whole year, then it was time to say good bye, but she got adopted by a great family. Not long after that I volunteered to help dogs in shelters.

About my house:

My house is not that big, it only has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms all painted and decorated by me, lol! I do have a doggy room, I use it as a doggy day care, so they can have their toys, beds, bowls everything you guys bring, the food will be hidden just in case hahaha. Outside the house there's lots of space, 0.25 acres to run around and play catch, fully fenced you don’t have to worry about them running away, if they try to dig, there’s no escaping because is double fenced. The yard is also divided in two, I bet you wonder why, well sometimes dogs don't get along so they can have a separate to play in.

Rates!

-1 Night ---- $30 to $35

This is based on a 24 hours stay.

Ex: If you drop off your pup at 9am on Saturday and you pick him up at 6pm on a Sunday you will get charged, why? Because that's over 24 hours and I would lose almost a whole day without getting paid, so far all my pet parents agree to this and they understand it.

So, if you're booking a weekend, drop of your pup at 6pm on friday, that way you can pick him up at 6pm on Sunday.

*****If you miss this this requirement more than 2 times, next time you book you will be asked to leave a $20 deposit, it will be returned if you don't go over the 24 hours.*****

I do work. I recently started working from 7am until 5pm, but there's someone in the house most of the time.

Saturdays and Sundays I am completely free.
