About: Welcome to the number one pet vacation destination east of the Mississippi, where all your dog has to bring is its love for everything. Great for all ages and temperaments, big and small, short and tall, bold and shy, anxious and spry. Your loved one will not miss you as much as you would like at this heavenly dog retreat. Instead, he’ll become a member of the The Mr. Wiggles Waggy Wonderland pack, some of the most wonderful dogs the world has ever known. On arrival, Mr. Wiggle’s regulars who have gone through the Mr Wiggles's Waggy Wonderland training program will eagerly welcome your pup and, during their stay, will teach them the ways of the pack, even the way of the world. These conditioned pros encourage guests to feel more comfortable in their new surroundings in record time and serve as brilliant teachers who will undoubtedly complement, if not improve, your dog’s overall greatness. Every day at Mr. Wiggles is a celebration of being on vacation. Daily off-site excursions are the talk of the town and typically range from 3-6 hours. Snow, rain or shine, the party goes on all the time. In nature, we have partnered up with many of the local wildlife to ensure the most exclusive spots are at our disposal, free from danger and filled with magical moments. We also have hookups in NYC, various beaches and lakes, and a few other hush-hush spots. Chariot training, aka pulling me on a skateboard, is another guest favorite. Standard amenities include but not limited to: Authentic bonds, earned love, and nonstop companionship Constant oversight by the Nicholas, the resident dog whisperer Daily offsite adventures Indoor/Outdoor fun Couches/Beds Leashes/Collars Purified Water More photos and videos than you could hope for Medication/special dietary needs Fenced yard Air Purifiers Garmin tracking collars 24-hour freedom (crating and separation only by guest choice) Mr Wiggles Waggy Wonderland is open to guests 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It is a full time vacation, socialization, and educational paradise for all ages. Nicholas is an expert in dog behavior, training, and commanding the pack. He easily reads the needs of every guest and keeps the environment comfortable for all. All go through a thorough vetting process to ensure there are no poopers in our party

Anytime I go on vacation or need someone to check in on my cat I call Nicole because she is super responsible and my cat ADORES her. Usually, I am very picky about who I let into my home because you never know but my friend recommended me Nicole and I have not looked back since. She has my full trust with my home and my cat who is basically like my child to me. She is super thoughtful and responsible and any pet would be lucky to be under her care.

Having Cristina as our pet sitter has been a game changer for us. Not only is she incredibly responsible and trustworthy, but she goes above and beyond to ensure our pets are happy and healthy in our absence. From daily walks to cuddle sessions, Cristina gives our pets the attention and love they deserve. Her communication is excellent, providing regular updates and even sending adorable photos to ease our minds while we're away. We can't recommend Cristina enough for anyone in need of a caring and dedicated pet sitter!"

Sasha was fantastic. We have a young puppy with a lot of energy, she not only played and ran around with him but was also patient in dealing with his puppy antics. Would definitely have her in our home again and highly recommend her services for your fur baby (just not on the days that we need her for ours :)

She is an amazing care taker for your pups! I love the way she is with my milo! He never goes with anyone but for some reason he is very attached and I can just drop him right off at her door steps and he will go! I’ve had her watch him for a week as I was on vacation and they grew a huge bond! She sends photos and always answers the phone when I wondered how my little guy was doing!

Hanna is a wonderful sitter and deserves the highest recommendation! She has done house visits for our two cats during two separate week long vacations and was very attentive and responsible. She proactively reached out to learn about our cats and showed a lot of affection for them during her visits. They were in very good hands. She was also flexible in terms of dates and number of visits per day. We have tried other sitters on Rover before with mixed results and are glad that we were able to hire Hanna!

I highly recommend Anthony as a dog walker based on their exceptional care for their own dog. Having witnessed firsthand their dedication and love towards their furry companion, I am confident they will extend the same level of attention and responsibility to other dogs in their care. Anthony consistently ensures their dog's well-being through regular exercise, proper nutrition, and attentive grooming. They prioritize safety during walks and playtime, always using appropriate equipment and keeping a vigilant eye on their dog's surroundings. Moreover, their nurturing approach fosters a strong bond built on trust and positive reinforcement. With their natural affinity for dogs and conscientious attitude, Anthony is well-prepared to provide reliable and compassionate dog walking services. Their commitment to the happiness and health of dogs makes them an excellent choice for anyone seeking a trustworthy and caring dog walker.

I highly recommend Amir as a pet sitter on Rover.com. Amir watched my dog, Louis, for three weeks and did an amazing job. He were reliable, attentive, and followed all my instructions perfectly. Louis, who can be quite particular, quickly bonded with Amir and was very comfortable and content. Amir’s genuine love for animals was evident in the care and attention they gave Louis. Amir also provided regular updates and photos, giving me peace of mind while I was away. If you’re looking for a responsible and compassionate pet sitter, Amir is the perfect choice.

She was wonderful with my knuckle head German Shepard. She walked, feed, and played with him even though he’s an excited nervous dog. She updated me on anything that happened while I was gone for my 5days and even with pictures! Marlita even went one step above and gave me tips and tricks to help with my dogs anxiety and I couldn’t have asked for more. Her jovial attitude has had a profound effect on me and my dog and I will definitely use her again.

As a first time dog mom of my baby boy Charlie ( Golden Retriever almost 1 year old), I can say that I did not know it was possible to love a little life so much. That being said, the past year has definitely had its challenges especially when it came to trusting someone with Charlie. This all changed when I met Denise and her little princess Ginger. Seeing the way Denise cares for Ginger, I knew Charlie was in good hands. As a pet parent herself, I know Denise truly puts herself in our shoes and cares for the pups as her own. When Charlie is with her, his safety is her number one concern, followed by having fun. I truly appreciate all the updates and pictures I get from her during the time they are together. As if that was not enough, I love that when Charlie sees Denise he is super excited and showing his affection with kisses. If that isn’t proof of a good time, I don’t know what else. Denise is the full package as she’s someone I trust and Charlie loves!

About: Hi there! 🐾 My name is Cinthia Luna. My love for pets is what sparked me to enter the wonderful world of pet sitting. I have grown up with animals my entire life. Starting out with cats, dogs, turtles, hamsters and fish! Many people thought my family was crazy for having so many pets! But I couldn't imagine my life without them. They bring so much joy and happiness to my family's life. Seeing their little faces everyday just puts a smile on my face! My experience in Pet Care is from having my own pets and caring for family and friends over the years, and also I’m currently working as a part time pet sitter for a local dog-walking company. I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for your "kids". 🐾 I am gentle, caring and loving with animals. I just love them so much and I am grateful to be able to spread my love for animals by taking the time to care for other fur babies. 😊 Feel free to reach out anytime! ☺️ This is my full time job, so I have lots of time to spend with your fur babies! 🐾 I am available 6 a.m - 8 p.m to walk your dogs, and check up on your fur babies 🐾 (but if you have any other requests out of that time frame, don’t hesitate to reach out) I’ll do anything to make your fur baby comfortable and happy! Always looking after them and making sure they’re safe and having a great time! 🫶🐾

Amanda is not just my girlfriend; she is a passionate and dedicated dog lover. Her love for dogs shines through in everything she does. I have witnessed her exceptional dog-sitting skills firsthand when she used to take care of her friend's dog. With her natural affection for animals and her responsible attitude, she always ensured the dog felt at home, showering it with love and attention. Now, Amanda has her own dog, and I can see the joy and happiness their companionship brings into her life. Her patience, understanding, and genuine affection for animals make her the perfect choice for a dog sitter. I have no doubt that she would provide the same level of love, care, and attention to any dog entrusted in her care.
