Fresh, home-cooked protein (chicken, fish, eggs etc.) added twice per day to the pets' food available only @ $30/week/pet or $7/day/pet.

Hello Pet parents,

THIS is my FULL-TIME JOB (apart from being a Lab-mom) so your furry family member will get the best care possible, therefore, whether you are going on a vacation, office trip (even office) or both, never stress yourself with your pup's safety and care, my home is the perfect place for your fur-baby's vacation with a 6 foot privacy fenced yard and a playful Lab!!

I will take care of your baby as my own (btw mine is a young black Labrador, Asia who is super-friendly and loves kids, puppies and all dogs). I allow them on furniture and bed because they are babies no matter their size and age, however, if they are trained not to be on furniture, we understand and respect that too.

I would also love to take care of caged pets (have taken care of a hedgehog and a Russian tortoise)- so caged animals are welcome too!

I have had dogs, cats and other animals all my life and I can't imagine my life without them. I have been sitting dogs for 4 years now and they all are repeat regular guests.

Need TLC for your extended family?Wolverine Lake, MI

I have grown up and cared for several different breeds of dogs & cats, including the occasional turtle, ferret, snake and gator. I am a lover of all types of pets and would be happy to help, and can be trusted to, care for your extended family member(s) as though they were one of my own. I'm NAPPS certified (check my profile photos for certificate) and just recently signed up for Pet First Aid & CPR ProTraining course

I have three dogs at home. Buddy, the Feist/Boston Terrier, is young, energetic and always up to play or run around. He can be quite protective/possessive with his ball or Frisbee so sometimes gets a timeout in the house so other dogs can enjoy them as well. Smokey, the Toy Fox Terrier, is older and a little more laid back but still likes the occasional play and loves to take walks. Attie, the Jack Russell Terrier mix, is a young puppy who we started to foster mid-June 2020 but then quickly realized she was meant to be part of the family so ended up adopting her instead. She absolutely loves to play and can be a little protective of her humans with some dogs but it typically only takes a few minutes for her to warm up to them. All three love our spacious backyard and I'm sure your dogs will too. We keep quite a few toys around the house for indoor & outdoor play.

PLEASE NOTE: While my dogs are allowed (and I don't mind having yours) on the furniture, I'll abide by the rules/training you've set for yours. For older dogs and/or those with issues walking on hard wood floors: I have rugs that can be set out to help with mobility. If your dog requires a special diet (needs food mixed with yogurt, etc.) or needs to take oral medication, not a problem! I typically take up to 5 boarders at a time, but there are times when I may take more (or less). It just depends on the dogs & their temperament (how well I think they may get along). The holidays do get quite busy. My drop-in & drop-off rate will be dependent on the amount of time/distance required.

YOUR DOG IS MY DOGCommerce, MI

My name is Robin Craft and I have a passion for my animal friends. I love dogs and walk 5 miles a day and I thought this would be a great opportunity to make use of my time and help someone in need. Caring for your dog(s) as if they were my own. I'm a stay at home mom and now my children are in school full time and I'm looking for something that I can do and still be available for them if they need me. Emma is our 14 year old pug who is very much a part of the family. I love to play with the dogs or just simply be there for them when they need extra help. Rover.com gives me the opportunity to connect with people and their fury family members. Thank you

Great with all breeds!Oakland, MI

Loving care provided to your pup 💕When caring for your pup, I treat her as one of my own. I'm known to go the extra mile including local pick up and drop off services, extended stays, puppy to senior care expertise. Offering fun routines for your pup including group walks allowing for longer walks & hikes in the area parks, advanced training activities and play time in the yard to burn energy. If they get dirty while having fun, I will typically bathe and dry them or at least the dirty parts.. so you can be sure you will have a clean home and your best friend won't need to sleep in the "dog house" after her day of fun! Please contact me with any questions or specific needs.

Professional and loving sitter:)Rochester, MI

**Hello! I have recently moved back home to Michigan due to corona virus lockdown. That being said, I am available day or night to anyone who needs help caring for their animals during this time. Here is a little about me:)

I have been caring for dogs professionally for 8 years now, which might make me the luckiest girl in the world! My passion for animal care has been strong throughout my entire life, and only continues to grow! I want to provide the kind of service that I would want for my animals. That means nothing less than making sure they are loved, safe, and provided with proper daily activities!. I grew up in Michigan, where we had six dogs, two horses, chickens and geese, rabbits, cats, and foster friends in an out of our loving family home:) I began professionally taking care of animals as a passion, and also as a way to save money for college. I went to my University in Chicago and continued to dog walk there! I was a dog walker for Windy City Paws and Rover in Chicago, so I have lots of experience walking dogs around different Chicago neighborhoods. Walking dogs in Chicago became an absolute dream gig. Every day I would walk dogs to lake Michigan and all around Wrigley Field. It became my full time job for 4 years while I wrote for Second City. After gaining enough experience I began to work with training dogs around town and healing dogs. Working with blind and disabled dogs and cats was absolutely one of the best parts of the job. Animals are such a blessing to this world, and to see those with disabilities be able to flourish in a big city was just remarkable. I truly believe that the animals in our homes are family members, and I make it my daily duty to treat your pets with respect, patience, and love:)

Joanie's Puppy Paw-adise!Beverly Hills, MI

Hello! I would love to welcome your beautiful dog into my home, where I promise they will get the love and attention they deserve while you are away!

Ever since my English Bulldog, Lucy, passed away, I have been craving for the companionship of a furry friend. I will love your dog like it is my own (which is A LOT!), letting you enjoy your vacation (or work day), knowing that your loved one is happy.

Since my kids have moved out, I have lots of room and love to share with your pup! I look forward to meeting you!

Note: I do charge $10. more per day for holiday weekends, Christmas, Thanksgiving etc. as demand is very high during those timeframes.

Love and AttentionWest Bloomfield, MI

Your dog will have the attention of myself and my twin teen sons. They both LOVE dogs. I mostly work from home so someone would be with your pet all day. We have an 14 year old Border Collie/Husky mix who is mild-mannered and gets along with every dog she's ever met.

Our house isn't fancy but the important things about dog care: (playing, snuggling, walks, treats and ...plenty of potty breaks!) exist in abundance under our roof and in our fenced yard.

For overnight boarding your dog can be dropped off any time after 7AM and picked up as late as 11PM without incurring any extra fees. We charge per night, not per 24-hr block. Arrangements can be made for other drop-off/pick-up times if needed.

NOTICE: Please be advised. Rover does not attach the usual Holiday Rate to EASTER. However, we do. Therefore an upwards adjustment will be made to the cost of any stay that includes Easter weekend.

Home full-time, and LOVE dogs!!!!!!Oxford, MI

Hello! My name is Kerry, I’m a mother of 7, and currently educating my youngest son. I’d be happy to come to your home and care for your pup/adult dogs while you’re away. I enjoy the outdoors and would LOVE the pleasure of your fur-baby’s company while I play with them in your yard, or take them for a walk. If your pup enjoys indoor play-time, that’s fine as well! I’m here to meet your furbaby’s needs, whatever they may be. An extra perk I’m happy to provide for you, weather permitting, is to clean up your yard; I call this, “Poop Patrol!” While your dog is enjoying romping around your fenced in yard, I’ll be disposing the waste, and leaving it in a plastic garbage bag by your garage. If this service is not requested, I’ll play fetch, massage your pup, and provide tons of TLC!!

Looking forward to hearing from you and meeting your family’s best friend!! ;-)
