Bring ‘Em To Roost At Mother Hen’s!Red Oak, TX

I was born with an innate desire to take care of animals, so being a dog sitter really is a dream come true for me! When I was a child, I used to actually sneak animals back home to help them out and nurse them back to health—dog sitting seems sort of like a logical extension of that now that I’m older! But I definitely have a very strong connection with dogs in particular, as they have such an amazing and selfless spirit about them. They certainly inspired me to do what I can to give back to them wherever I could.

Since my teenage years, I have always volunteered at animal shelters for at least two months out of the year. Volunteering has always been an extremely rewarding experience, and I learned so much about proper dog care in the process. I have also learned how to train dogs using voice commands and hand gestures from professional trainers and handlers, which I bring to my own pups all the time. I have studied animals and their mannerisms extensively and know what warning signs to look for in scared or intimidated animals. I have personally trained all of my dogs and have even taught them unusual commands such as “Hoover”, which is when food (usually Cheerios) has fallen on the floor and they are allowed to pick it up! I’m always eager to learn about the animals I meet and cater my care to their individual needs.

Although I’ll be the primary caregiver to your pup, my house is full of puppy love! I love with my husband, 11-year-old daughter, and my young son. My husband and daughter are always hands-on in helping with the animals in my care, and they absolutely love having new pups come stay with us. My son is a toddler, but he is very sweet and gentle with all animals, as I took care to teach both of my children from a very early age to love and properly interact with animals. I think we four make a pretty great team together! In addition to the four of us, I also have four pups of my own who just can’t wait to make new friends. All of my dogs are large to extra-large, but they are some of the friendliest creatures around. Julius is my official ambassador. He is very patient and allows new dogs to really become comfortable with new faces. Luna, my puppy, is usually the second furry face they see after they’ve shown their comfortable with other dogs. Minerva is the next face once they’ve become acclimated to Luna, and Maximus is the last because he’s the oldest and sometimes takes a bit to warm up to new pups. All of the dogs I’ve boarded have been successfully integrated into my pack within the first 12-24 hours, however, so I’m sure that we’ll all be good friends in no time at all.

I am very flexible and willing to work with reasonable requests and/or modifications, so please feel free to ask! Late drop offs and pickups are accepted as well as last-minute requests, per availability.

I do have the ability to separate dogs that are not socialized, however, a $15/night charge will be added to the booking prior to confirmation of the booking due to the added measure needed to be taken to ensure a safe environment for everyone. I do not charge for late or early exchanges, but do ask for advance notice if you plan on dropping off before 8am or after 8pm. I can trim nails, but will not if the dog shows signs of anxiety or aggression.

Your dog's second home is here!Lancaster, TX

I have been so fortunate to have such a wonderful client base. Your dogs have become part of our small family and we love them all. I welcome all new dogs to become a part of our extended family as well.

Your dog(s) will be pampered, loved and cared for by 2 surrogate parents! My husband Billy and I enjoy providing exclusive care. We do not work outside of the home, so your dog(s) will always be with someone. Here's my disclaimer: I cannot be responsible for spoiling your dog. That's just what we do! For more information and to see what my life with dogs is really like, please visit my Rebecca At Rover.com public page on Facebook. You will see my photos and videos of my sits, as well as informative information and fun facts!

My house is all about peace and is drama free. I give exclusive care by mimicking your care at home. During our meet & greet, you will be required to complete a detailed questionnaire with me so that I may provide your dog(s) with the very best of care. I will sit up to 4 dogs at a time if they are from the same household. Any dogs not from the same household (i.e. there is crossover with drop off/pick up times) will be kept in a separate part of the house, being taken care of exclusively too by my husband and now full time partner Billy! In that case, we switch back and forth so we can both enjoy the dogs visiting.

I have had several dogs, small and large in the past (Beagle, Yorkie, Black Lab, Aussie, Rottweiler), but none since relocating from New Jersey to Texas. I would love to care for your dog!

Your dog will have plenty of exercise running in our huge, enclosed yard and treated specifically based on your instructions.

We have a bed and a bowl of water in every room for the dogs. If they choose to sleep in our bedroom with us, that's fine too! We do not believe in allowing dogs to sleep outside. We have no children and no pets; just us 2. Let us care for your pups!

About this sitter:

I am patient. I do not believe in corporal punishment, so please do not even ask me to physically discipline your dog, even a swat on the nose for an accident. It's just not going to happen. I am experienced in administering medication by pill, liquid or injection. I am also skilled at caring for dogs with debilitating illnesses such as cancer & diabetes, those who have had strokes, blind dogs, deaf dogs and physically disabled dogs who need to be carried. Basically, I will sit for the dogs that most kennels and sitters will not take.

Why I love dog sitting:

I think I love dogs more than most people I know. They are capable of so much and I enjoy sharing those experiences with every dog I sit for. The emotional connections developed, especially when they become my regulars, are just so amazing! They provide love and comfort and laughter and will bring you to tears. The dogs with cancer who wake up in the middle of the night in pain and the best you can do is just to hold and comfort them. The dogs with diabetes who have to have their insulin shots every 12 hours, so you set your alarm at 11:55 PM to get up to prepare the syringe and administer the medication. The dogs who are staying with us for the very first time who are missing home and have to be distracted with whatever silly thing you have to do to make them happy. The blind dog who has to be watched every single minute so she won't injure herself, so we rearrange the house just for her visit. Or remembering that older dogs aren't necessarily ignoring your commands and perhaps they are hard of hearing, so you work with that. As a true dog lover, we alter our lives to fit whatever need the dogs we sit for have. And I love it! I wish I had realized that earlier in my life.

No pets of our own.

About my yard

My backyard is approximately 1/2 acre. It is completely fenced in. However, my husband Billy or myself will be outside with your dog at all times. I do not believe in letting a dog out and leaving them out there unsupervised. During these hot months, we have a kiddie pool, just in case some of my dog clients want to cool off.

My experience administering medication

I have experience with medication in pill and liquid form. I am also experienced in administering injections.

Never leave your Precious Babies in a Cold concrete Kennel again

A vacation is a time to relax, unwind, and take a break from the obligations and stresses of everyday life. The last thing you want to be doing is lying on the beach or lounging by a pool worrying about your dog. Finding someone to watch your pup when you travel is always a challenge. Traditionally, your options involve coaxing an unreliable friend or family member into watching your dog or taking him to a kennel that is simultaneously boarding ninety-nine other dogs.

*When your Pet stays with us, He/she is loved with all our Hearts, and given the loving Attention he/she deserves and used to..

*They are able to have their own areas, and also play and/or socialize with my own playful pets..

I know how sometimes just the change in water can upset your babies tummy's, so we always give Fresh Cool Osmosis Filtered Water to drink..

I also ask that all dogs be on a flea and tick prevention, I know everyone thinks the freeze this winter killed alot of bad bugs, but I don't think so judging by the June Bugs I've seen.. Man I hate June Bug.. LOL

Home full-time, fenced yardRed Oak, TX

Hi there! I'm Sandra, your pet's next best friend! I'm an experienced, loving, and available dog sitter, and I can't wait to meet you and your pet!

You and your dog will love that I'm experienced. I have had dogs all my life! I raised Dobermans and trained them for obedience and breeding. My daughter often left her small dogs with me over the years so I am used to all sizes. If you need help with training or keeping commands consistent, I can do that as well.

I adore all animals, and have had a large variety of them throughout my life, even exotics like birds and reptiles. I run a horse boarding facility, and the horses live in fenced pastures outside my main backyard. The horses and dogs would be separate but they can see each other. I work from home, so your dog will enjoy lots of one on one time with me. The only time I won't be with them is when I am providing care for the horses.

Dogs are very special creatures and I love them all. Caring for them makes life a joy. They can always lift your spirits and make things better. My home is pretty simple and very dog proof--so you don't need to worry about your pup getting into anything. I do have a kitten in the house, but she can be put in a separate room if your dog doesn't get along with cats. She is still kind of crazy, as kittens will be. I have two large dogs of my own, but they generally stay outside except in bad weather. I also have a run available for an outside dog, in addition to a fenced front yard. I do have horses near the yard and pen and I board them as well!

Animals have a sense for who is an animal lover. Any pets in my care will know immediately that I am there to love them and look after them. I know how hard it is to leave your dog with a new person, and I promise to care for them just like you do. Please reach out to me with any questions, I'm looking forward to meeting you.
