Home full time, large fenced yard!Roanoke, VA

My name is Marah! I am a local Roanoke native, I am married to the best man in the whole world (Jordan) and we live in NW Roanoke close to Salem! I have four dogs and a cat that are super friendly and look forward to sharing their days with your babies!

My husband works rotating shifts so sometimes he is home all day with me and other times he is working! Our schedule works out great to allow us to never have to leave our dogs alone for more than an hour or two tops! We look forward to meeting you and your babies and welcoming them into our home!

I am not available for meet and greets and extended drop offs during the day (Monday-Friday) so if this is the first time you have booked with me please plan on an early morning drop off (before 7 am) or later afternoon (after 4pm). I do work from home but have meetings, deadlines, and conference calls to attend to along with my animals and the ones I host.

I do host several dogs at once so sending me a courtesy text that you are on the way is helpful so that I can have everyone secured and not trying to run out the front door. Also, please be respectful of my time. Yes I work from home but I cannot wait for hours at a time for you to show up whenever you want. If you book please let me know when I can expect you to drop off. If you are going to be later than 15 minutes from our arranged time please be courteous and send me a text letting me know that. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO WEEKENDS!

When your dog is staying in our home please only bring their supply of food. We cannot keep up with blankets, toys, bowls, beds, etc. We have plenty of extra bowls and blankets here for the dogs to use. I also have extra slow feeder bowls so please let me know if those are needed.

If I have watched your dog previously and something has changed please inform me of new medications, supplements, found allergies, etc.

When you come to pick up and drop off you will notice that I have a sign on the door stating please do not ring the doorbell this also means do not knock or beat on the door. Chances are my dogs have already alerted me and my husband may or may not be sleeping and would greatly appreciate less noise.

Also when dropping off I have probably informed you we are the first two story brick house on the right... my neighbors would greatly appreciate that you not park in their driveway or stop in the middle of the road. Please pull in front of our house only (we are not particular about the grass) so feel free to park there if necessary. It’s a dead end street but we like to be courteous of the other people driving up and down it.

Lastly, I love Siberian Huskies. Many people question the reason I don't keep them the answer is simple. I own a cat a two small dogs. Siberian Huskies are natural predators and I have hosted mixed breeds in the past that have attacked my cat and my smaller more timid dog. Three of my four pups are rescues that suffered abuse. I will not allow them to be attacked in their own home. I am sorry if I offend you please know that I don't host animals just for profit. I host animals because I am a genuine animal lover my animals are the only babies I have and I will protect them.

Roanoke's Pawsome Times Retreat!Boones Mill, VA

There are lots of woods and trails to walk the animals on and it is very quiet and peaceful with no busy roads or any sort of traffic or neighbors even driving by. Located on a privately owned road~off the beaten path! On a doggie vacay your pet will get pampered, snuggled, plenty of belly rubs and for those water dogs even a trip down to the creek.

BIG/small ❤️ them all, Goodview, VAGoodview, VA

We are so excited you have decided to try Rover so we can help make your pets next vacation wonderful! In our home we have 2 large dogs ( Lab, and a Mutt) one cat, and one small child. We also have free range chickens on our property. Our furry friends love everyone, (big or small) but we have separate spaces if that would make you, or your pet more comfortable. Though we always watch everyone closely, we please ask for your dog to be tolerable of small children. Our own dogs enjoy sleeping on their plush beds, (or ours) getting treats, and playing with their friends who come to visit. Both my husband and I work, but your furry friend would not be without human company for too long during the day. They would have constant human company at night and on the weekends. Of course our furry friends are always there to keep them company while we are away. Our dogs are inside dogs, and only go out if we are there with them. We do have a fenced area in the rear of our house. The pups would have outside time a minimal of three times a day. As always, your pet will receive lots of love, attention, toys, and soft places to sleep. We can accommodate elderly dogs, dogs with medication needs, special need dogs, and restricted diets. I have owned dogs my entire life, and we have had a wide variety of experience with multiple dog breeds while using Rover. We are excited about meeting you and your fur babies!

Very loving & caring walker/sitterRoanoke, VA

I am a friendly dog loving individual who is looking for new opportunities hanging out with the animals I love most! I have always had and cared for dogs for as long as I can remember. I have no breed or weight restrictions and quite a soft spot for pitbull terrior breeds! I do prefer larger breeds simply because I have big dogs and they run and play like big dogs do. As mentioned I am a dog owner myself so would need meet and greets to ensure safe environment for all involved if services are needed at my home. My dogs can be high energy and quite excitable when meeting new friends (dog and human) but are very sweet natured. They enjoy having dogs here to play as much as I do. I also very much enjoy the dog walking side of this and love meeting new people and their pups! I hope you will consider me next time you have ANY dog needs!

The best things in life have fur! ❤Cave Spring, VA

*** Discounts for recurring events several times every week , ect ...daily walks , drop in/ care visits, ect. **** We are both animal lovers and activists! Every animal is loved and cared for like he or she is our family when they come to visit us or we stay over at their house ! We have not and will not ever over book or host for financial gain! Safety and quality of care is always first ! We want to spoil your baby with the care and love she or he deserves and that you have paid for and send pictures, updates, virtual walks and or videos with their time with us ! Every animal gets five star experiences with us as well as the owners who have trusted us with their precious furbabies ! We welcome them on our furniture , our beds , our hearts , and overall just ensure they feel included and all feel safe, loved , and secure in our home. Our home is their home while they are here. ( If you do not allow them on your furniture , let us know and we will gladly honor your family and home rules for consistency ) You are also welcome to bring their beds, toys, and anything else of theirs to our home , though, it is not necessary, since we always have blankets down , pillows, beds , and yoga mats to make sure they are comfortable. Our 12 year old, beloved Boxer, Theia, lost her 2 year battle with cancer that she fought with us by her side and with the care and compassion of Pet Vets Staff. Our sweet baby girl passed in my arms while I cuddled her and sang you are my Sunshine. She was our baby for 12 wonderful years and while we have not been able to bring ourselves to replace her with another dog of our own , Rover has helped healed our broken hearts and gives us the wonderful opportunity to love and care for so many sweet pups and cats while their families are away! Animals have always brightened our days and have enriched our lives with their loyalty and unconditional love. We have also elected for Rover to withhold a percentage of every payment and donate to the Old Haven Senior Rescue for elderly dogs to honor our Boxers memory. The rescue group pulls senior dogs from kill shelters and find them a forever home to be loved and cared for in their most fragile and delicate stage. So together with your payment and our donation election , we save so many who wouldn't be adopted due to their age and instead put down after being abandoned by their loved ones ! We have also volunteered at the RVSPCA in the past , fostered animals in our home for rescue groups. We have both taken and exceeded classes in animal behaviors , grooming , and K 9 and feline general care courses. We both have expert knowledge on how to prevent a dog from getting loose while in our care. We use baby gates at all door entries , have signs alerting any visitors not to open our doors due to the potential of an animal being able to run out. We dont ever leave them outside unsupervised even in a fenced in yard. We have no problem with leash pullers or pups that may have some behavioral setbacks. I am highly knowledgeable with senior dogs , cats , special needs animals , and animals that have some behavioral set backs. I can give oral medications and or injections as needed. I have also cared for exotic animals of all kinds , reptiles , birds , ferrets, guinea pigs, and fire belly toads ! Our clients speak so highly of us in our reviews because this is not just money, this is our passion ! We are both Independent Brokers that work in the house, so, your dogs are never alone or unsupervised! The love and loyalty of animals is the greatest joy we have found in life. After all, all the best things in this life come with fur !

Loving care/retired dog rescuerRoanoke, VA

I have always owned a pet (or 6) but with the death of my last dog and cat I became a dog rescuer (and sometimes cats). I have worked in all aspects of rescue work from administration to fostering. I have fostered over 75 dogs. I worked mostly with small breeds as a foster but have done vacation sitting for all size dogs. My home is dog friendly with a large fenced in yard. I have portable stairs to get up to the couch or bed for little dogs. I live near a Greenway trail head and love to walk the dogs in the woods.

I can only take dogs that get along well with other dogs (if I am sitting more than yours) and housebroken. They must be on flea prevention and come to me well groomed,walk well on a leash (I am a small woman) and have no history of aggression.

I am retired and home all day, most days. I can promise you that your dog will be treated like my own....well loved!!!

Come. Sit. Stay. Play.Bent Mountain, VA

Hey! My name is Amanda, and my husband is Daniel. We currently own 3 dogs myself, 11, 5, and 4 years old! I I foster and coordinate for a nationwide rescue, and have had anywhere from my 3 dogs up to 10 dogs (Mom and pups!) at a time. We have a fenced and gated wrap around deck, which gives all dogs 24/7 access to outside. We also have a fence for our dogs and I take everyone for a walk/run everyday; the mileage depends on the dogs. We also have a finished basement, so if you're dog has any anxiety/animal issues, they have couches and rugs available to them for alone time. We have 5 acres of land to explore, and I have extensive experience with high energy dogs (border collies, German Shorthaired Pointers, etc) and low energy dogs. My dogs of various ages ensure your dog will always have someone of their energy level to play with!! If it suits the pet more, I am more than happy to visit them in your home. I also have experience with rabbits, chickens, goats, horses, fish, turtles, snakes, geckos, and many, many other animals.

About this sitter:

I can travel to your pet's home, where it feels most comfortable to walk/feed/entertain it. I am available for early morning and evening walks, and depending on location mid-day walks. I also have experience with many other animals, such as rabbits, fish, horses, cats, snakes, geckos, etc. If it is just a quick 15 minute walk or a longer run, I am happy to help you and your the best way I can. I have 3 dogs, so walking multiple dogs is something I have a ton of experience with! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. I am open to anything and would love to help you! At this point, I can daily walking visits for the Floyd area only.

Right now, this is not my main source of income. It will be when I start law school, but for now, all proceeds I make go straight to fund my foster dogs and rescues.

I love animals, and have a ton to show it! I have pet sat for many people before in Tennessee before I moved to Virginia, and am looking to start up again. I take all 3 of my dogs on daily walks/runs, and am experience in administering medicine. I also worked for a vet's office while in college for Vet Med major., so I have been exposed to it all!

Why I love dog sitting

I have many, many dogs over the years, starting with the day was born. I always loved animals, but dogs hold a special place in my heart. I rescue and foster canines, and firmly believe there are no bad dogs. I avidly rescue bully breeds, black dogs, senior dogs, and the like to give them a better life.

Meet my pets

I have a rabbit named Wilbur and 2 pet chickens.

About my yard

I have 5 acres of land our dogs are free to explore. We have a secure, fenced in section for off leash play and socialization with our pups. Most of our land is wooded, and dogs are inspected for any ticks before they come back in the house. About 1 acre is mowed lawn, and kept short, so we can also keep them there during the high tick season.

My experience administering medication

Very extensive. I have experience with lots of medication, from insulin injections to pills.

We love dogs! Large fenced in yard!Salem, VA

I have trained, cared for and owned numerous dogs ranging from hunting sport dogs to small lap dogs. I have been dog sitting for many years and have been using Rover for over 5 years. I enjoy being active with my animals but also enjoy a nice lazy afternoon snuggling on the couch. I love all dogs and truly enjoy watching all different breeds and sizes. I firmly believe there is no such thing as “too many dogs!” We simply incorporate our visitors into our every day lives to keep them on schedule and feeling welcomed and loved. Whether your dog enjoys quiet time alone, a plethora of toys and bones or a few friendly playmates - we have it all! We have numerous regulars who fight leaving every time their visit comes to an end & honestly, we feel the same! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

Large fenced yard with doggy doorRoanoke, VA

My two children and I love hosting other dogs in our home to play with our two terrier mixes, Carl and Albert. They have 24 hour access to the large fenced yard through the doggy door. I work from 8-4:30 but am able to come home at lunch for mid day checks or potty breaks if the dogs are being crated. We enjoy going for walks through the neighborhood and the dogs get plenty of snuggles and attention from all of us. I am also available for housesitting when the kids are with their father. I currently have one dog we keep regularly when the family travels and would love to add a few more. I also foster puppies for the SPCA when we are able. We would love to provide food, shelter, and care for your loved one, big or small!
