Doggy Day Care in Southside Village, Sarasota, FL
Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
About: I’ve taken care of dogs of every kind. Neighbors, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed and clean their pets. I try to treat the dogs like I would treat my human clients when I'm training them. I will be available to work Monday through Sunday, times vary depending on when you need me. I take off Saturdays for Sabbath so I don't do any work on that day. I will come by to take your dog for a walk, depending on how long of a walk your dog needs, up to 45 minutes max. Dogs are air cooled animals so they cannot be out in the heat for very long.
About: I have lived with animals my entire life. I was raised around Dogs, cats, birds and fish. Growing up we had dogs of all sizes from tiny chihuahuas to larger collies. I have experience with younger dogs as I am currently raising an 8 month old German Shepherd named Arya. I also have plenty of experience with older dogs. I have done house sitting for family and friends in the past and would like to help the community take care of thier fury friends while away or busy. Thanks for reading!

About: I have been taking care of dogs my entire life. From my families, to my neighbors and to my friends, they have all asked me for help. I am working part time right now, and I set my own schedule. So, I can work any time, any place. Let me know what works best for you. I always try to treat the animal with the upmost respect. They are living creatures and deserve the best treatment possible. I am very friendly to them and let them build trust with me first.
“Donna & Mike are excellent caregivers. Our fur baby (Maia) suffers from anxiety which has not been an issue with staying with Donna & Mike. They lovingly cared for Maia. They sent videos and pics of her while under their care. We highly recommend their services. They go above and beyond caring for Maia and making us feel comfortable/relieved under their care.”
“Amber was the absolute best! She sent pictures through out the day, helped teach our puppy how to go down multiple stairs and was generally really sweet and attentive to our pup. Excited to have him stay with her in the future!”
“Debra was amazing. Friendly and caring. She does not just watch your dog she wants to know all about them. She didn’t rush me when I was explaining about my dog and took everything into consideration. I’m very appreciative, and so is my furry little guy. 🐕”
“Joey took amazing care of my cat Goku! He played with him, loved him, and even, with my permission, introduced his dog Rambo to my cat Goku and they loved each other! He took great, professional care of my cat and I would let him sit for me again a hundred times!”
“There couldn't be a more conscientious pet caregiver than Bill. Bill took over the care of his father's dog when his father passed away. He and his wife took the dog everywhere, and provided incredible care. Following the death of his own dog, he put food and water at the end of his driveway for other dogs as they were being walked by their owners. He rescued a baby turtle, and he built a turtle-friendly home where the turtle has thrived. We have known Bill for many years, and have found that in all aspects of his life, he is extremely careful. If you want the best caregiver for your dog, Bill is the person you want to hire.”
“Alanna has watched our pets for years. She has stayed at our home, come for feeding and walking only and also taken dogs to her home to stay. We’ve always felt they were loved and cared for. She cares for our cats and birds as well. We trust her and know she loves animals just as she loves her children.”

“Charlotte (and Randy) are fantastic! We've known them as our rescue Phoebe's, doggie sitter for some time now, and have become friends. Charlotte is loving to all the dogs and Phoebe looks forward to seeing his "other family".?? We would give them 10 ? If we could!!”

“Great family who took wonderful care of our wild puppy Nala for the day. They took her on a long walk and kept us updated with lots of good pics throughout the day. She was nice and relaxed when we picked her up in the evening- they obviously love dogs and we would definitely use them to sit for her again in the future. Highly recommend!”
“Thank you, Tamara for being so kind, understanding, and communicative while our boys stayed with you! I appreciated the updates and photos so much. We look forward to booking another service with you soon!”
“Joyce is fabulous! Smooth experience, very attentive, great communication. Thank you!”
“Helen is a true dog lover. She is able to work with all sizes of dogs. She has worked with a trainer and has a very good understanding of animal behavior and how to work with difficult behaviors. Helen taught me that the dog walk is not just bonding/training time between dog and walker but also an exciting sensory experience that is very important in very dog’s day. She is very dependable no matter what the weather is like. If the dog will go out she will too! She will be an excellent addition to Rover.”

About: Ever since I was a kid, I always had at least one pet. In the last 16 years I have a cat and in my last 8 years I have also and a dog. During the weekdays and for the weekends because of my obligations , I am only available for dog walkings after 7 o'clock in the afternoon. For those who are interested for boarding - your dog will be also accompanied by our friendly female dog I will pay lots of attention to your animal. I love to walk outside and enjoy watching them play in the dog park, throwing toys, and explore for new smells.
“Sheila is the most amazing pet owner/sitter. She has a genuine compassion and love for all animals, especially dogs. When she has watched my dogs, she does an outstanding job. I am never worried for their wellbeing as I know she is there. My dogs always seem a bit more sad after Sheila leaves because she spoils them so much with her love! I'm sure my dogs wish that Sheila lived with them all of the time! ”
“Ashley is easy to communicate regarding my concerned. When we picked up my dog, Beavis is very happy and tired (good thing)because he played with other dogs. I highly recommend her! Definitely we will hire her again.”
“DENISE is very good with animals. She has watched my beautiful cat Bella many times and took very good care of her. I never had to worry about her when I was away. I totally trust DENISE with any animal she’s watched a friends dog more than once and she was very pleased with Denise’s services. She has all the qualities of a great pet sitter very caring, and very attentive. Thank you Michelle”
