Dog Haven of Des MoinesDes Moines, WA

Covid-19 notice: We are currently taking several measures to keep all of us and you safe during drop off & pick up of your pets. We will share the details before your drop off dates. Thank you for staying safe.

Dog Haven is located just 10 minutes from SeaTac Airport. WE SPECIALIZE IN 5 LB TO 25 LB DOGS). Dogs must be at least 2 years old.

We send photo updates all during our guests stay, as often as you would like to see them. We are devoted to providing a healthy and happy home for our own pets, but limit our ownership to three dogs. Our passion for happy dogs goes way beyond just three ... we provide that "home away from home" confidence that a dog owner needs. We strive to provide our clients with a worry free separation from their 4-legged family member. Basic "positive" dog training helps to make for a happy dog.

60 years of dog ownership! My first dog came when I was 5 years old. My father was a black Labrador bird dog breeder. That was the start of a life-time love of dogs. The sad part of getting a little older is that you out-live them. Buster, my Labrador until I was 18; Joey, a cocker spaniel until old age; 3 rescued German Shepherds during my 20's. until we found great forever homes for them. That was the start of our rescue history. 2 Yorkshire Terriers until old age - the oldest was Gonzo that lived past 15 years; Moki, a black Cocker Spaniel that was the love of our son's life until old age. Then a steady stream of rescues that we nursed through illnesses until healthy or until they passed. A Great Dane named "Dane" had a short life of 11 years.. which broke our hearts so we went back to caring for rescues. Last but not least our sweet Jackson - our Miniature Schnauzer for 13 years - passed recently from cancer and my darling Merlin - golden Shih Tzu - almost 15 years old - passed recently of old age. Every dog deserves kindness and a loving home. Our family always knows that their pets have a "home away from home" when they leave for vacations.

We do not have any pets other than our 3 dogs.

We have a large completely fenced back yard, large cement patio area for running, and a large flat lawn for play. an abundance of washable & durable dog toys.

We are experienced with administering medication. We have nursed several rescues with illnesses. We are comfortable with cooking their food if necessary as well.

We offer pickup & drop off services to local senior residents of Des Moines, Normandy Park/Kent for seniors that no longer drive.

Stay up to date on all the fun!!

Visit my Facebook business page. Just search "Emily's Woof Pack" where I post daily pictures and videos of the crew! Don't forget to like and follow us while your there!

Hey guys, my name is Emily and my passion is animals, more specifically your babies!

I am an experienced, licensed and insured pet care provider that would love to care for your furbabies! I love animals of all shapes, sizes, kinds, and breeds. Animals have always been a big part of my life and I couldn’t imagine a house without a 4 legged family member running around. I have been pet sitting for about 10 years now (full time for almost 3 years). I dedicate my heart to your sweet babies and love to build bonds with the pups that I watch. I honestly fall in love with them and really enjoy what I do with my whole heart. I give lot of snuggles and way too many treats!

I understand that while you’re away, pets just aren't themselves. Being without their family can be very stressful. I dedicate my time to them to make sure they are as comfortable and happy as possible. I do that by following their normal routine and by giving them as much attention and exercise as they need. I am very patient and understanding with pups when it comes to their temperaments, potty training, medical needs, anxiety, leash skills, ect. I have also cared for dogs with all kinds of special needs including elderly, epileptic, diabetic, food aggressive, and of course overly energetic.

My fiance Brandon and I have been together for 5 years and he loves the pups just as much as I do. When he is home from work I usually find him snuggled up on the couch with one or all the pups. He is always very involved in the fun that the pups and I are having. We work as a team with everything, so you and your pup will both get to know him as well.

We own our home, which has a very nice, grassy backyard with plenty of space to run around and play in! It is fully fenced with 6ft tall wooden fencing. We even added an additional fenced area to allow the "littles" to be comfortable in their own space away from the monster paws of the "bigs" if necessary! I am a short drive away from the Fort Steilacoom park which I can take your dog to (with permission of course!). We spend most of the day hanging out and having a great time.

Doggy daycare is available depending on schedule!

I am available to watch your furry family member in your home as well. I can stop in twice daily to make sure they get plenty of love and attention. I am unable to stay overnight though, due to having dogs of my own as well as hosting. When I stop in to visit your pets I will feed, walk, play, and cuddle them until they are happy and calm!

Home All Day So Your Dogs Can Play!Tacoma, WA

My Background:

I am a 33-year-old college graduate who decided to put her environmental science degree to good use and care for dogs! Since July of 2017, I have been working full-time for Rover. I have a fully-fenced yard, a 24/7 webcam for clients to check in on their pups at any time, and a very open, flexible schedule. My dogs are small, friendly, and extremely socialized. Dogs have full access to the yard as long as I am home and awake, which maximizes exercise and minimizes accidents. I have no carpet in the house so puppies who are still learning are not a problem. Feel free to schedule a meet and greet with me! I am very responsive and will not make you wait! Smoke- and cat-free household.

I have watched 387 dogs since starting with Rover in July 2017. The most recent 100 are pictured on my profile. :)

If my calendar shows "unavailable", it is possible that because of pet size and/or overlaps on my calendar, I might be able to accommodate, so please feel free to message me anyway. And if you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to ask! Your pet's safety and security, and your peace of mind, is of the utmost importance here! I hope to meet you and your fur baby!

Paws Are The BestLakewood, WA

In my home the fur kids have never been referred to as pets, or that they are just dogs. Each one I’ve loved & currently love are family, which opens my heart to a lot of caring emotions loaded with unconditional comfort, fun moments & protection because I truly want them to have a happy life.

I’ve resided in this house since 1997 & during that time I’ve had three dogs, all Labradors/Lab Mix.

Taylor & Chloe were my first fur kids who are frolicking at the Rainbow Bridge since Feb 2012 & 2013

Grace is my current fur child, she's so smart & sweet, a very loving girl. It's easy to provide affection, love & playtime everyday. She was 3 months old when we first met & she instantly melted my heart & without any hesitation I said well cutie you’ve found your fur ever home!

Her Birthday is in July -

(2020 - she'll be 8 years)

Becoming a Host & enjoying the opportunity to give more of my affection & great caring nature to other dogs was a good decision. I've provided care to many different breeds both big & small.

It's rewarding getting to know some great pet parents & their 4-legged fur kids. The friendships that I've gained give me many reasons to smile and I'm proud of the trust I've built with them & their fur kids.

My day's are full of happy smiles, playtime, brief photography sessions, wagging tails & an abundance of kisses.

I truly love the service that I provide & your dog will definitely let you know that statement is true. On their future trips here the excitement they’ll exude just coming down the street I live on & how they run up to my door is only a couple examples how they'll let you know.

Thanks to all my fur friends for telling your parents how happy you are when you’re in my care.

It means SO much to me.

Woof!

Grace is always excited to see who's arriving to spend time with us. She likes to look out the window & barks when I tell her they'll be here soon.

Guest dogs are allowed up on the living room furniture because I want them to feel comfortable & allow them to be near me when I’m relaxing. I just toss a blanket on the couch to help protect the fabric & all is good. They’re even welcome on my bed too, as long as Grace has her spot ... she & I will make room. Some guests prefer to sleep in their own dog bed in the bedroom, that's ok too.

Toys are around, but feel free to bring your dog's favorite when you come to visit, as well as their food ..(special treats) .. instructions,bed, blanket/crate. Whatever comforts they have in your home can be met when they are with me with things they are familiar with.

My home has a good sized enclosed backyard for security, potty breaks & playtimes. I like keeping it picked up during the day, stepping in a pile is no fun when the dogs are running & focused on playing. A treat jar sits on the kitchen counter & in the living room. It's funny how they always know where the snacks are. During the summertime, Ibring out the kiddie pool so that the 4-legged friends can splash & cool off. They always love to try to retrieve a floating toy in the water.

** Dog's can sense if someone is nice & I am one of those someone's

We love Dogs!!!! <3 <3 <3North End, Tacoma, WA

Hello fellow dog lover!

Are you gone all day at work and leaving your best friend at home all alone? Looking for a walk break for your baby while you’re working away? Going on that overnight excursion to the city and can't take your furry bestie because it's "no pets allowed" and hot- as- heck or too cold? My Family and I, including my 8 year old son, own a home in North Tacoma and have an outstanding, micro farm back yard. Fully fenced,100 % enclosed 1/4 acre, 7 fruit trees, grass and a huge deck for your four-legged family member to romp and play all day. Water stations, doggy pool and lots of toys going on warmer days. We are a dog loving family from way back and have two small dogs of our own that are very friendly with other dogs and excellent (fixed...of course) play partners to the right, friendly companions. We have many covered areas and a mudroom that is a great rest/weather and transitional space and our dogs stay inside where its quiet, and cozy with us, as would your baby too. We have a dog doors and frequent potty breaks (1-1 1/2 hours typically all day long) and lots of constant play. Everybody stays busy all day and snuggles in the evening when the sun goes down. I have taught my son to be very, very respectful and gentle of animals, and we love to cuddle. We give our pets lots of love and attention and that would go for your best friends too. I love my home business and am available to love and care for your baby when you are not! Please contact me with any more questions and I look forward to making some lasting relationships with you and your dogs. I love to send pics! Look for lots of information below, reviews and pictures on my page of my 5 star service. And, look forward to having your fur baby stay.

a fun loving place for fidoSpanaway, WA

We are long time animal lovers, We have a precious black lab of our own. We have a 8 foot tall fully fenced yard for dogs to play in. We keep our house clean and tidy but don't mind an "accident " to clean up. We've been pet sitting for friends and family for years and absolutely love it. We love taking our dog on walks and would love to take yours on a walk to. I'm a stay at home mom so I'm here all day and night so your pet would never be alone. I love dogs of all sizes. I rarely travel my self so I'm available all year long.

Why I love dog sitting

I've been a dog lover ever since I was a kid. When I was little I used to think dogs were the most amazing things in the world I could never resist running up and asking to pet every dog that I saw. The first dog I ever had was a Pomeranian, then I ended up getting a bulldog , then a lab pit mix, and now I currently have a pure bred lab.

Your Dog Will Be Part Of Our FamilyLake Tapps, WA

Hi, my name is Dana Hettman and I am a life-long animal lover and dog owner. My husband, Ken and I have two female dachshunds that we rescued named Tootsie and Susie. We have had 7 dachshunds since we were married 35 years ago, and my parents bred dachshunds while I was growing up. Our home is completely fenced with a large yard, and since my husband has a silk screening business here, there is someone at our residence at all times. I drive a school bus, but have summertime free to give most of my attention to your precious pup.

Why I love dog sitting

I have been a dog lover all my life, with my parents breeding and showing dachshunds at one point! My husband and I have had 7 dachshunds and one sheepdog in the 35 years that we have been married.

About my yard

We have a large, completely fenced in yard. Our house sets in the center of the lot, so there is plenty of yard in the back and the front of the house.

My experience administering medication

I am comfortable administering medication, as long as there is detailed instructions.
