About: I am a dog lover extraordinaire who raised two bullies (each living to 14) and cared for countless pooches as if they were my own. I am well versed at administering medications and catering to unique dietary needs. I also love long hikes and would be thrilled to take your dog with me on the trails. I want to ensure your pup enjoys familiar routines, a comfortable living space, and most importantly, caring companionship. I currently work from home and have plenty of time to give your pup the extra love and care they need. Potty breaks can be as frequent as needed on property and daily walks around the neighborhood or on local trails or parks will be tailored to your dog's needs, preferences, and abilities. Also happy to do a beach run if your pup is able to run off leash and enjoys the water. I have fenced decks and a fenced yard for lots of outdoor time and I have a SUV to take your pup out if they enjoy car rides. Your dog’s safety is my top priority. My home is secure, and regularly cleaned to maintain a healthy environment. Please note, I have a three story house, so if going up two flights of stairs is a challenge for your dog, I might not be the best fit. Please be aware that I require a meet and greet prior to taking new dogs. I find dogs adjust quicker when they come back to a familiar place. I also require all dogs to be up-to-date on vaccinations.

Marisa & her lovely family are so kind to Romeo. What a perfect spot with a sweet yard. He strolled up to their house on day 2 with a wagging tail & made himself at home. Happy to have Marisa in the neughborhood!

Tom truly showed he cares for dogs and our Schnauzer had a super good day with him. His flexibility on drop off and pick up hours was very helpful for our day away. The photos and video we got from Tom made us feel like we need not worry about her at all. His fenced yard is a good place to roam outside and his neighborhood has some good walking territory.

Lillie was great and I would highly recommend her. She watch my two puppies (3 months and 4 months old) and they had a blast! She worked on potty training and was great with them. She also was available on short noticed and was super easy to coordinate and communicate with. I am grateful to have found her!

About: ****Please note new changes *** I recently adopted and rescued a sweet 1 yr old Havanese mix dog. He's very friendly and very chill with animals including cats. For dog sits, I would request that he come with me (although he might not and he might stay home with his mom). I have an extensive history with animals. Lastly, a new update, I will not accept dogs who are aggressive with other dogs moving forward. I have owned three dogs, two cats, and two ferrets in the past. I have always been a dog lover ever since I was a young boy. I currently adopted a new dog and he is a sweet angel and very well-behaved. You will get constant updates on how your dog is doing on a daily basis. I will take them on fun adventures to hiking trails, beaches, or parks. I am a firm believer that dogs are really man's best friends and will treat your furry friend as if he/she was my own, with lots of love. Look forward to meeting with you and your dog. Yes, I currently walk my dog at least 3 times a day, including a hike where we can meet other dogs. I do this full-time as we have officially entered a recession in the tech world. If I am in the home/boarding, I will ensure your dog is fed and adheres to their normal routines. Nothing changes when I care for them, except we might be hiking a lot depending on their age and if they can handle that; if not, we chill locally and take small local walks or let them outside for relief.

We were traveling and had last minute need for a sitter. What a lucky break finding Carla & Lenny! Not only was our boy well cared for, but he went on a gorgeous hike and made friends! He may have had a better holiday than us! Definitely will use again when we’re back in the area.

Kevin was great with Kona. She’s usually very shy when meeting new people but he had treats ready for her and she warmed up to him right away. He was also flexible when my drop off time changed last minute. Thank you, Kevin!

Jackie is an awesome sitter! Our pup Lily has separation anxiety and Jackie did a great job putting her at ease. Jackie was very communicative with updates and sent us wonderful pics of Lily enjoying her stay. We've been very happy with our experience so far and will be scheduling more stays with Jackie going forward.

About: Dogs have always been a part of my life! I grew up taking care of a Bichon and a Yorkie. My husband and I have a 4 year old Goldendoodle that we adore. We would love to take care of other dogs when available as we regularly use Rover ourselves when we go out of town! I will ensure your dog gets the attention they deserve! I also know how important it is to receive updates while you’re away so I will frequently communicate with you and provide photos of your dog. I work from home so will have plenty of time to take care of your dog during their stay with me including multiple walks and play time. I have a friendly dog that absolutely loves other dogs! I have a fenced deck and small yard but live in a neighborhood with plenty of room to go on walks and nearby dog parks as well.

Rick is great with animals, having his own lab at 10, big lovable chocolate. Not only did he teach him to sit, stay, walk on a lead, but to fetch, catch things, wait when he walked away and to never jump on people. All done with kindness and consistency. His current dog he adopted as an adult. Rick rehabbed him into being wonderful and playful with all the needed obedience that are needed for a successful dog. His dog comes first and someone else' would have the same loving care.

Marlo is wonderful. She is calm, caring, and my little pup calmed right down with her and had a wonderful day. I think Izzy has found her person!. Thank you so much Marlo and we hope to book with you again very soon.
