WE LOVE DOGS ☆ LAST-MIN HOLIDAY OK!Islandview, Detroit, MI

Alex & Jenny here! We're a fun-loving, dog-sitting, house-renovating couple who would LOVE the opportunity to care for your pup! We are self-employed and work from home and we have a fence-enclosed back yard! Having dogs around is a great compliment to our life here and we are around full-time to supervise and entertain them. We have lived with dogs our whole life and we do dog training as a hobby (just ask us to show you some of our dog Maya's tricks some time haha). If you need a SAFE and FUN place with a LOVING home for your dog then you've come to the right place!

MEET MAYA:

Maya is a wonderful and sweet 9 year old rescue dog from California (lab mix). She is gentle and caring toward kids, people, and pets of all type. Maya loves having friends over and we're sure she will get along just fine with your pup(s).

LOCATION:

We are located about 2 miles east of downtown Detroit in the "Villages" (Islandview village) which is a historic neighborhood on East Grand Boulevard.

ABOUT OUR HOME

The house sits on a large lot with a fence-enclosed yard. With the yard and the large space upstairs there is plenty of room for the dogs to run and play and lounge around. Maya's favorite past-time is to protect the backyard from squirrels and birds so I'm sure your doggie will also enjoy participating :-)

DAILY EXERCISE

We love to play with the dogs and we offer them tons of opportunities to exercise and burn off energy. The dogs are in a totally secured area and have the ability to go potty at all times.

INSIDE THE HOME

Inside the home, your dog will enjoy several nice cozy doggy beds and more dog toys than you can imagine. :-) We work from home so the dogs can hang out with us or they can play in other parts of the house / yard and they are always supervised.

SECURITY

The house and the fence-enclosed yard provides total security so your dog will be safe and well protected.

PHOTOS

We will take some photos (and possibly video) to document your dog's time here. We also have a Facebook Page for Maya & her furry friends. Facebook search for 'wonderdoggy' or ask us about it. :)

TRAINING

Depending on the nature of your dog and how long they will stay, we are open to helping with some behavior training if you'd like.

AGGRESSIVE OR SPECIAL NEEDS DOGS

We usually prefer to take care of friendly dogs but if you have an aggressive dog or a special needs animal please get in touch so we can discuss the details.

HOUSE BROKEN?

At this time we prefer to host dogs that are house broken. If your doggie might have problems going potty inside we might be able to accommodate them but please understand that this situation creates a LOT more work for us so we have decided not to host dogs who are not completely housebroken.

CRATE TRAINED?

Since we often have a few doggies staying with us, we often feed our doggies in separate crates. For that reason, we prefer to take care of doggies that are crate trained. If you doggies have problem with that, please let us know and we can see if we can work with that.

CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT

When you book with us please give us an ETA for your drop off and pick-up. This helps us organize our daily schedule so we'll be ready when you get here. Also if your ETA changes please keep us in the loop and also please send us a message when you're pulling up to the house so we know you're here. We are living in the top floor of a very large house and we'll come down to greet you when you arrive. For drop-off and pick-up we prefer to arrange this after 7am and before 10pm but it could be possible outside of this window depending on certain circumstances.

A NOTE ABOUT STAIRS

We live up 2 flights of stairs in our place so please make sure your pup(s) will be okay going up and down stairs before you book.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

Just let us know if you have any other questions and we'll be happy to help! We always do our best to accommodate our guests and we really love having the dogs around.

THANK YOU! WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU :-)

About this sitter:

Married mother of 3 children, working at home as a medical transcriptionist

Why I love dog sitting

My husband and I have both had dogs all our lives and love all breeds. Our children's first and second dogs, Thor was a mixed Lab and Biscuit a Puggle both lived long and healthy lives and we loved them for 14 and 15 years respectfully.

About my yard

Large fenced in back yard with trees for shade and lots of room to run and play. We have taken a lot of precaution to ensure the fence bottoms are secure and there are no areas that a small guest can get out. Most times we also go outside with them anyway to have some play time.

My experience administering medication

Yes, i have given many shots and oral medication and we do not charge anything additional for this!

Fenced backyardWestland, MI

I've always had a love for dogs, all dogs really. I grew up with 3 dogs in our home and had two dogs of my own before my divorce. I love helping others with their doggies. I love seeing and learning the different personalities of all the dogs and breeds. My two boys love dogs too and are eager to help and cuddle with your doggies. I have a fenced backyard, room for them to run and play and will walk them too. Recently we got a German Shepherd puppy named Mya. She is very playful and loves playing with the other dogs, but also knows when it's time to relax and knows when other dogs have had enough play time too. My boyfriends dogs often visit and sometimes stay overnight and they love other dogs and love to play too. Your pet/s will be loved and cared for as it is one of my own. I can promise you that. Please let me know if you have any questions at all. Just ask!! Hope to hear from you soon!

FT Sitter-Near Airport-Big YardDearborn, MI

WORK AT HOME + DOG CPR AND FIRST AID TRAINED + 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE + BIG FENCED-IN BACKYARD + UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

Go ahead, take that vacation or go off to work assured your baby will:

* Be pampered with kisses and hugs (a minimum of 50 per day).

* Receive consistent attention (I am a full-time professional dog sitter who works out of her home, which not only ensures the highest quality care but also prevents you and your dog from having to go through multiple sitters and meet-n-greets).

* Go for a daily walk (dependent upon your dog's activity tolerance and your specifications).

My guests also enjoy amenities such as in-house toys, homemade treats, a spacious fenced-in backyard, and a comfy bed. Please let me know if you need me to administer your pampered pup his or her medications. I am able to provide injectable, oral, topical, and other routes of medication. Additionally, I am certified in dog first aid and CPR.

Please note I cannot accept reservations for or allow in my home the following types of dogs:

1. Are not current on at least ALL of the following vaccinations: rabies, Bordetella, and DHLPP. Plus, due to the fact that the canine flu has hit Michigan, I am now requiring all my guests to be vaccinated for canine influenza H3N8 & H3N2 (it is for their own protection).

2. With known or unsure aggression issues, as I usually have more than one dog at a time.

3. If I do not meet the dog via a meet-n-greet prior to the proposed reservation dates (your vacation dates).

4. Are not completely house-trained.

5. Are property destructive in any way.

6. Are not able to sleep with or without me (whatever your dog's preference is) without barking, whining, or crying throughout the night.

All the conditions above are for the safety and well-being of ALL my four-legged guests.

That Is So Fetch! And run and play!Downtown, Detroit, MI

Hello!

My name is Jeannette. All my life I’ve been an animal lover, and for a little over 20-some years, owner. As a self-employed-at-home worker I couldn’t think of a better way to keep busy and make a new friend.

Does your fur baby require my belly rubbing magic? Maybe some serious butt scratching? How about some good ole fashioned pooch patience? Well, it would be my treat to sit, walk or board your favorite furball.

As a pet owner, I understand the concerns that come with entrusting someone new. So, if you need to ask a bazillion questions, Skype, drop-in, or need more pics and videos than your phone can handle - I hear ya, and I’m here for ya! I want you, as much as your furry family member, to feel comfortable.

***WARNING: Michigan weather can be feisty, but I’m fiestier. So come rain, shine or the occasional snowfall, there’s a high probability of getting wet, muddy and silly! In the case of being snowed in - or even a midnight wee - there’s doggie grass on the balcony.

Home full-time, fenced in yardDearborn, MI

We have no pets of our own, so we love to dog-sit for everyone else! Our kids love dogs and our whole family will treat your dog like part of our family. We will take your dog for walks, give them a lot of attention, and follow your instructions exactly as you ask. References available. Will offer a special rate for two dogs from the same family. We only watch for one family at a time, but occasionally two families may overlap by a day and I will always check with both families before I agree to that. We have really enjoyed getting to know so many different dogs, and we have done a lot of different things to accommodate their needs! I have gone to pick up a dog to stay at our house when the owner didn't drive, we have brushed their teeth when requested, we have given medications, followed special diets as provided by the owner, and generally done whatever is asked to make sure their loved one feels comfortable in our home. Pampered? I give our dog visitors filtered or bottled water! Dogs are allowed to sleep on our bed, if that is what they prefer at their own home! Big fenced-in yard and they are always supervised when outside. We're about 15 minutes from Detroit Metro Airport, easy to get to the airport after bringing your dog to us. (Some people have left their car at our house and took an Uber to airport and it was cheaper than parking at the airport in the long-term lots! You can leave your car in our driveway if you want!) We're happy to have your dog with us!

We were thrilled with Karen and her family. The whole family loves dogs. We boarded our beagle with her over Christmas and he got lots of walks, got to sleep on the couch, had lots of attention and was loved like at our house. I highly, highly recommend!!

Lacea took great care of our dog for a few days. Only issue was our dog will bark at unfamiliar noises, and that can be an issue at naptimes if your dog is similarly inclined. But otherwise, great feedback while we were gone, great care provided
