Dog Boarding in The Fan, Richmond, VA
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight at your sitter's home.
“Blythe did a great job watching our senior dog Charlie while we attended a wedding over Memorial Day weekend. Her flexibility, communication, and occasional updates were much appreciated, especially given the fact that he was getting over some stomach issues the same week and she needed to give him some meds during his stay. His stay with her went smoothly, and we’d definitely recommend her to future clients!”
“Matt did a fantastic job watching our dog who can be a bit of a handful at times. He took the time and care to make sure our dog had a great time.”
About: I've taken care of animals for as long as I can remember. Throughout my childhood, my family had several cats and 3 dogs. I have experience with animals of all ages, from kitten/puppy to senior pets. I currently have 2 cats of my own, but I'm more than capable of caring for dogs as well (of all sizes/breeds). Most of my friends have dogs and I always look forward to seeing them and playing with them when I get the chance. I would love a dog of my own, but being a renter and moving around a lot I can't take on an additional pet at the moment. Even though I'm a cat household, all animals are welcome and will be treated like one of the family. I work full time from home so I'm always around to look after your fur babies. I can take frequent breaks during the work day to check in on them whether it be to feed them, play for a bit, or take care of bathroom breaks. During non-working hours, they will have my full attention. When your pet is in my care, my goal is to love them and care for them like they're one of my own. I want to adapt to your pet's needs whether that means a lot of play time, walks, or just some quality couch time. If your pet has any special needs or takes medication, I can accommodate and take care of them as needed. I'll provide as much interaction as possible and keep them safe and cared for (whether that's in your home or mine). I have a small, fenced in yard big enough for dogs to run around or play a game of fetch.
“10/10! Would recommend! Joe is a caring, friendly, thoughtful, detail oriented caregiver! He will consider your pets needs first when it comes to ensuring they are receiving the proper attention while under his care.”
“Katherine took FANTASTIC care of my nine month old Boston Terrier, Finn. It was my first time leaving him for more than a few hours, so I was a little nervous. But Katherine was great about sending updates and pictures and was very responsive to my questions. I would absolutely book her again, she’s fantastic!”
“My little buddy was loved as soon as he arrived!! Connor is the best and perfectly made my shy pup feel comfortable and welcome. Thanks Connor!!!”
“So thankful that I found Christina. I had an emergency and needed someone to take my dog for a few days while I dealt with an injury. Christina was able to take my dog on the same day and even offered to leave work early to get my dog for me. Christina sent me a lot of updates and I could tell my dog was very happy in her care. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a dog sitter.”
“Sarah took excellent care of our little guy. He had lots of fun playing with her pups and we will definitely be using her again!”
“We really enjoyed the experience with Keesha. Great communication and our dog enjoyed his stay. He got to enjoy time with other dogs as well as outdoors. Will definitely book again! Thanks Keesha”
“Matt was really communicative for our dog’s overnight stay. He was quick to check in when our pup wasn’t eating right away (she’s just like that sometimes) and sent plenty of pictures. His WFH schedule was perfect and allowed us to drop our dog off in the afternoon of a workday. Thanks Matt!”
“Tiffany is amazing! This was the first time I boarded my Simba. I was so nervous. However, Simba was very well taken care of. Tiffany kept me updated with texts and pictures. She was professional and caring toward not only Simba but me as well. Simba truly enjoyed his stay. I don’t think he wanted to come home! I will definitely use Tiffany’s services again. If you want a reliable, patient, caring, and professional person to care for your pet, Tiffany is your person!!!”
“Kiera was great. She sent lots of updates and Brady seemed to be comfortable there and well taken care of. Would book again!”
“Brad lovingly took care of Dolly for a week. She was spoiled with belly rubs and tons of attention. We received pictures on a regular basis and they had nothing but sweet things to say about her. Definitely recommend Brad to watch your fur baby. They will receive the best care.”
“Kira was great! She has watched our pets on tow occassions and has been responsive, communicative, great with the pets and just all around reliable. Our dogs love Kira and cry when they see her. We even think they may be better bagged on walks after our most recent extended time away. We highly recommend Kira for anyone concerned about their most special pets’ needs. (Ours can be a handful.)”
“Alexis was great! She sent plenty of updates to assure me my pup was being well taken care of. I can tell me girl was well taken care of and had a good time. I will definitely be using Alexis for all future trips!”
“Ana was really great and took great care of my dog. She welcomed our pup into her family and treated her like her own. We received a lot of pictures and videos while we were away. We did not worry about our dog at all because we knew she was being taken care of. I could not have asked for more and would definitely use her services again.”
About: I grew up with a yellow lab, and I have dogsit off and on the past several years. My husband and I recently adopted a goldendoodle puppy and are enjoying playing and loving on him. I WFH M, TH, F and I have flexible availability :) I have a puppy right now, so frequently take breaks and walks during the day. I have a fenced in, big backyard. I also live right by a trail so enjoy long walks with my current pup as well as other dogs I have dogsat before.
“Mariah was everything I was looking for in a sitter - welcoming, experienced and responsive. This was my first time using Rover and she made sure I was comfortable. 10/10 recommend.”
“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Gabrielle. One of our dogs is special needs, so my husband and I tend to worry about him when we are traveling. We are so thankful we found Gabrielle because our dogs love to stay with her and both dogs run and jump out of our car when we drop them off. Gabrielle’s communication has been proactive and consistent whenever our dogs stay with her. She sends frequent photos and updates. I can tell she truly cares for my animals like they are her own. Both dogs required medications throughout their stay and she was on top of their routines! They also struggle with eating at times, and she had ideas to help that we hadn’t thought of which helped them eat their meals. Go with Gabrielle for all of your pet care needs!”
