Home Full Time for Wagging TailsCapitol Hill, Denver, CO

Hello! My name is Frank. I work from home, so I am able to devote a lot of time to caring for your dog.

Throughout my life, I have been a dog lover. Dogs are the ultimate companions, and I understand what it takes to be a successful dog caretaker. I am a great sitter because I am dependable, caring and calm. I work from home and can be there for your pup all hours of the day. My lhasa apso Brody loves company and would love to be your dog's vacation companion.

You can trust in me to offer your dog the best care while you are away. As a dog owner, I understand how hard it is to leave your dog, you can be confident that I will support and care for them like they are my own.

Please reach out if you'd like to book a stay, I can't wait to meet you and your dog. Due to my daughter's school schedule, I am unable to accommodate drop-offs/pick-ups from 8:15 AM - 9:00 AM and from 3:20 PM - 4:20 PM.

We dog sit & groom from homePark Hill, Denver, CO

Hello, we are Chelsea and Aaron, full time dog sitters and groomers, and we LOVE working with dogs! We have an older French Mastiff named Zen who will sleep the day away with the older lazy pups and a young French Bulldog who will play all day with the energetic pups no matter what size they are. We have a good sized fenced in backyard for the pups to play, have a park across the street for walks, and are only a few blocks away from Stapleton's Off-Leash Dog Park. We are always home with the dogs. If we need to run an errand, one of us stays home with the pups while the other takes care of errands. If we do have an outing together they are not left alone for over 2 hours. Chelsea has been a professional dog groomer for 8 yrs and has been dog sitting for 4 years. Aaron has also been sitting dogs for 4 years and a professional dog groomer for 5 years. We do offer a 20% discount on grooming services when its included with a stay. We take drop offs and pick ups as early as 7am and as late as 10pm. Come back from your vacation to a tired, happy, clean and well groomed dog! :)

Why we love dog sitting

We have grown up with dogs being an important part of our lives. From having them as pets, to working with them

Klaudia's Pet Sitting ServicesCentral West Denver, Denver, CO

I have over 10 years of professional dog and cat care experience as well as a life time of personal pet care experience. :)

While living in New York, I worked in a doggy daycare. As a pack leader, I was responsible for watching up to 70+ dogs in a daycare setting, making sure that they play accordingly and making sure that the play pens are clean at all times. I bathed, fed and walked dogs. As a front desk customer service associate, I was responsible for checking dogs in, booking appointments, taking directions from owners as well as maintaining the retail area.

Soon after, I was promoted to a manager, where I oversaw daily operations in a professional setting. I was responsible for making sure that dogs were fed, walked and medicated per instruction. I managed the walking and grooming schedules of the dogs in our care. I also managed the inventory of the store, which included retail, cleaning and grooming supplies.

I really enjoy working with animals, and I am not afraid of any breed, big or small. I have experience with basic first aid. I also have experience with aggressive dog breeds.

Feel free to contact me! I look forwards to meeting you and your furry one! :)

Huge dog lover & I'm a CertifiedvtCentral East Denver, Denver, CO

I worked as a Certified veterinary technician for 20 years. I also used to pet sit for clients of the hospital. I try to adopt adult or older dogs & love them to pieces! I really understand canine body language. Dogs tend to warm up to me quickly. I've pretty much dedicated most my life to animals. They are the best kind of people! I also know canine cpr. I live 1/2 a block from a park and I walk everyday! I also live two blocks from an off leash dog park and I go everyday! My dog Mork is my universe and I treat the dogs that stay with me with me the same way ❤️. They can cuddle on the couch and in the bed if that's what they are used to doing ?

Love, Pets and HappinessCity Park, Denver, CO

HI my name is Jesse and I am here to help. Pets are the coolest and I connect with them all big or small no matter the personality. My number one goal is the happiness of the pet (and his/her owner) with complete customer satisfaction. Exercise, social life, and diet are important for a animal's longevity and necessary for their health, which I will gladly provide.  This is my passion and I absolutely love it!  Trust is crucial for a strong relationship.  I'm a Marine Corp veteran that has thru-hiked the Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails so I'm as down to earth as they come.  I'm with the pooches all day and all night. The pet service process will run smoothly and your loved ones will be treated like my own.  I have two wonderful dogs, The Dude and Master Splinter, so rest assured your pets will be safe and happy with me. Happiness is the key to life.  :)

PS: I offer a 30 minute walk for $20, 45 minute walk for $25 and 60 minute walk for $30. +$5 for each additional pup.

Also, I can pick-up and/or drop-off round trip for $10, $15 or $20 depending on distance.

As well, I am very comfortable and have experience with all the furry felines. Meds, feed, water, litter and lots of petting and massage! That's kitties and bunnies but not limited to!

Most all living things are welcome including reptiles and plants.

Your pet's home away from home!Denver, CO

Our family has been working with Rover for 5 years and we love it! My husband Adrian and I have a 7 year old son and have one large (80lbs) adopted dog of our own, we own our home with a large fenced backyard. I work from home and Adrian is home all day so the dogs have free run of inside and outside. We rotate them in groups depending on their personalities and desires, some would rather lounge inside on the couch all day and that is fine too! Dogs are not unsupervised for more than 2-3 hours; if we do have to leave the house we have the ability to separate dogs into different rooms in the house. If we feel dogs aren't getting enough exercise we walk them around the neighborhood for 30-45 minutes. Your dogs would be well cared for, we treat them like our own. We have extra dog beds and crates if requested. We feed dogs twice a day for breakfast and dinner and ensure that they are fed in separate areas to avoid any issues. We cater to your dogs special dietary needs and are able to offer grain free healthy treats unless specified not too.

Must love unicorns!Five Points, Denver, CO

There isn't a day in my life that I don't remember having at least one pet share our home. I grew up with a deaf Great Dane, whom we taught sign language to, and a German Shepherd/Lab mix. My first job was working in a pet store, where I adopted a lot of our animals that needed special homes including a chinchilla with allergies, a bearded dragon who was missing a leg, a gerbil missing part of his tail, and even a sugar glider that a customer could no longer care for! I can also care for cats, reptiles, birds, amphibians, and any other furry friends you might share your home with. I love ALL breeds and all species! I have worked in a vet clinic, so I know the basics of when something's not quite right. I can administer medications and have experience caring for senior and special needs dogs. I also have basic obedience dog training experience with service dogs in training (additional cost if you want me to work with your dog). I have multiple years of experience working in a boarding facility that catered to each pet's individual needs. Most of all, I just love animals and understand that your pet is a part of your family and will treat them as if they were my own!
