Big Fenced-in Yard & Doggie Suite!Rochester, NY

I, Taylor, have been an animal lover my whole life. Originally I wanted to work with animals as a career but my life took a different turn. So now I am trying to get back into that part of me that wants to do something for our furry friends. Being a Rover sitter doesn't even feel like work and that's the best part. I have so much fun and feel blessed to have met each and every dog that gets to stay with me.

My family has had dogs my entire life but I took a real role starting around age ten. I have had my own personal dog since 2015, Lily. She has anxiety issues so I am willing to work with any dog with special arrangements, considering I deal with it myself. Just recently we added Gryffin to our family. He is a young Dalmatian and he is full of energy. One of the main reasons for getting Gryffin was to support his sister and her anxiety, and he has done amazing. He has been teaching his sister to trust other animals and be more adventurous. It is a pretty wonderful blessing. I have been to multiple dog training classes with my dogs so I know consistency and patience is key. I have learned to understand dog behavior since taking these classes. I know what is good verses bad and how to address the situations. With Lily's anxiety I have done a lot of private lessons and understand dogs' social cues and behaviors. I am willing to work with any dog to help them adjust to their weekend away.

Gryffin basically runs my Rover business because he enjoys greeting the new guests, showing them around, and keeps them entertained for hours! My lovely assistant for this business adventure is my fiancé Zack. He is an amazing support and helps out with anything I need assistance with. I couldn't do this without my boys.

Along with Rover, Zack and I also foster dog for the local rescue Operation Freedom Ride. We have been opening up our home to foster dogs since June 2019 and are absolutely loving it. Our favorite story to tell is of Grayson and Dawson, the boys in our profile picture. They are Pitbull Mix puppies that came to OFR from Georgia with severe mange, to the point they had no fur on their bodies, and two types of parasites. Zack and I spent a month of our lives caring for them while they were in our home under quarantine. They required four types of medication, nightly ointment, and weekly medicated baths. As you can see from the photo, they are now healthy, beautiful boys who have been adopted out to forever homes. From time to time, Dawson comes and stays with us for a night or two as a Rover client now.

Fun facts about me:

• I have volunteered as a dog walker for the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, LA. That is the rescue center on Animal Planet's Pitbulls and Parolees.

• On March 6, 2019 our Rover business was highlighted in a Spectrum News video about local pet sitting businesses through Rover.com.

• On February 20, 2020 Taylor was interviewed by a local blog, The Savvy Couple, on the success of their Rover business.

Camp Cloe Resort (Rochester, NY)East Irondequoit, Rochester, NY

I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician and been taking care of pets for 19 years now. I work part time at the animal hospital so I can continue to learn and still be a part of my passion for helping animals. I also specialize in dogs with anxiety issues. I am a life long friend for you and your fur baby. Camp Cloe started with watching diabetics from my animal hospital and has grown to any dog that needs a vacation. To anyone that is new to Camp Cloe, I like to do meet and greets before accepting any new dogs if at all possible. It is my job to make sure your pup is in safe hands and I want them and you to have the best experience as possible. I have made exceptions for people that are coming from out of state. I try and talk on the phone or computer chat so I can get a feel for you and your pet. I try and help my clients any way I can, babysitting, medical advice, and general questions about what you can do to help as your pet gets older. I only want the best for them. : ) My backyard is fully fenced in and the inside is one level for the pups that can't get up and down stairs well. My house is very clean and dog friendly. The dogs can sleep where they want, whether in bed with me, on the couch, or on their bed next to me. I can also do Doggie day care certain days during the week in the summer time starting June!!! I'm close to the bay for those last minute bookings to go on a boat ride with friends. All the dogs love my back yard and camp fires we have. My backyard is literally a resort for dogs and even their owners ask if they can stay too for a weekend here! I also have a projector so we can all watch movies outside now! I love it and the dogs play or sit and watch the movie with me. My pups were rescues at one point and they do very well with other rescue and anxiety dogs. I must say I'm proud to have a very good pack because they are the ones to really tell them that they are in a happy and safe place. They really know how to make all their furry friends feel welcome and part of my family. This is truly a resort for them and my daily stress reliever! : )

I love them like they are my own!Fairport, NY

I am a lifelong animal lover who has been pet sitting for people in their homes for many years. I specialize in geriatric and special needs animal care which includes administering shots and medications. Post surgical animals are also welcome and I am able to transport pets in need to doctor appointments while you are away for an extra charge. I also deal with behavioral problems excluding aggressive tendencies towards any pet in my home. I am a volunteer at the local animal shelter where I do foster care for animals who are awaiting their forever homes. People have called me the animal whisperer because I have a way of making all animals feel comfortable. I treat all animals in my care with love and respect. I look forward to caring for your furry babies.

the peaceful pack in Rochester, NYSwillburg, rochester, NY

I will treat your dog with love and kindness and yet be careful to continue good training behaviors. I do offer discounted rates for extended stays. ;-) Please contact me for more information. I work from home, so will give your pup lots of personalized attention and love. Many friends have told me countless times that I should start a dog training business, remarking on how comfortable, calm and happy their dogs have been while in my care.

While with me, your pup will receive at least three walks a day, outside and supervised time in the fenced back yard, and will get to meet my chickens (which have their own safe, dog proof enclosure).

My own dog is pretty smart in dealing with a variety of temperaments. She is calm and quiet; yet also playful for those guest pups needing an energy release.

I have small, medium and large dog crates available, if you feel your pup needs to be crated for any reason. Otherwise, they will be free to roam in my house during their entire stay, as does my own. ;-)

I keep my home clean and free of toxic chemicals and scents. I use chemical-free cleaning products to ensure your pup a safe and healthy stay.

Prices can be adjusted for extended stays ($36/night), and multiple dog families ($28/night for the each additional dog).

Why I love dog sitting:

I've had dogs all my life and have owned and cared independently for my own dogs for at least 25 years. I have one dog now, but have had two dogs together for over 10 years. I am very comfortable caring for multiple dogs in one home. Friends that have had me watch their dogs and see me work with my own dogs are always amazed how well I communicate with them, and them with me. So, that makes me tend to think that I can perceive what a dog is needing and help it be happy. ;-)

Meet my pets:

I do have chickens in the backyard, but they are 100% separate and safe from the dogs. No worries, there! I have a very personable calico cat. She is very friendly with the pups, even quite playful. I'd go as far to say she is the actual leader of my peaceful pack. ;-)

About my yard:

I have a completely fenced back yard. It is a pretty good size for a home in the city. I have chickens that run in a separate area of the backyard. There is absolutely no chance the dogs and chickens interact. Most of the yard has grass. The only little bit that doesn't is the chickens' yard. Chickens annihilate everything green. ;-)

My experience administering medication:

Yes, I am comfortable giving both pills and injections. I have lots of experience with elderly dogs. My last pup, Ramona, was 16.5 years old when we finally had to say goodbye.

Doggy Daycare!Webster, NY

Hello! My name is Maile and I run a dog daycare and boarding facility in Webster. I have always loved all dogs and I love spending everyday giving them the love and care they need.

During your dogs stay they will be able to play with the other daycare/boarding dogs in the fenced in yard and the indoor play areas in my facility. The dogs do take a 2 hour rest in their crates so they can come out and play some more!

I used to work at Eastridge Animal hospital so I do have experience giving medication if necessary and I also can take senior dogs and separate them from the crazy puppies if needed!

I would love to set up a meet and greet with you before your dog comes to stay to make sure they get along with the other dogs and be able to meet them.

Your dog will always come home happy and tired after their stay!

No Kennels, No Chains, No Guilt when leaving your dog here with me at Just Like Home Dog Care! When your pup is here, they are part of the family! They will be allowed to sleep in bed, and on the sofa’s with your approval. When it’s time for exercise, they have a nice fenced in yard to run around!

Your pup's "home away from home"Park Avenue, Rochester, NY

Hello! My husband and I have been dog-sitting for three years now and we love it! We've watched many different sizes and breeds of dogs, even elderly dogs and dogs with special needs. I also volunteer at an animal shelter, so I have lots of experience with rescues and dogs with different temperaments.

We recently adopted our own dog, Olive. She's a sweet small/medium mixed breed pup, 4 years old.

We relocated to Rochester into our first house two years ago. It's a large house with a fenced in front yard, perfect for a dog to run around in! It's in a very dog-friendly, walkable neighborhood.

I mostly accept bookings for weekends only (Friday evening drop-off is usually possible), so I can be with your dog at all times. They are welcomed to lounge on our couch and sleep in bed with us if they want to.

Let us know if you'd like us to give your dog a bath during his or her stay. I also paint pet portraits - please ask for a price list if you're interested.

We're looking forward to meeting you and your dogs!

Please note: Due to high demand, I have a STRICT cancellation policy. Please do not make a booking request if you're unsure of your travel dates or of your need for a sitter.

Also, I'm happy to have a 20 minute meet-and-greet with you and your dog at my home (though it is not required). I do NOT provide pet care services by the hour - you must pay for a full day, as I'll be unable to book the rest of that day.

Dog Groomer & Life Long Dog Lover!Homestead Heights, Rochester, NY

I've been in love with dogs for as long as I can remember! I currently work at Petsmart as a trained dog groomer in the grooming salon. I have 2 dogs of my own, PJ who’ve I had for 11 years since he was 3 months old and Charlie who I rescued 4 years ago. I love learning about and being around all animals. I've volunteered at Nickel City Animal Hospital in Buffalo NY where I was shown the ins and outs of working with different animals. I think my knowledge and hands-on experiences with pets differentiates me from other sitters. I regularly babysit 3 other dogs, and I've had up to 8 dogs in my care at one time, and I loved every minute of it! My availability is extremely flexible, I have my own car and would be able to accommodate any request you had. I am doing this mostly for fun, I love being around dogs, you can never have too many!
