Our Doggies Love PlaymatesMalvern, PA

I work from home full-time, so I'm available all day to sit with your pet. Our dogs are friendly and enjoy playing in a large, fenced backyard. My husband and I have experience being foster parents for All4Paws rescue so we are used to caring for dogs of different temperaments. We are located on the Upper Mainline in Malvern.

It may sound simplistic,...but our family just loves dogs. When my husband and I were shopping for our house, we were more concerned about the size of the backyard than anything else - concerned our own dogs would have plenty of room to roam. We have been dog-sitting on Rover for 6 years,...and look forward to caring for your four-legged children too.

We do require that your pets be friendly with other dogs, kids and babies.

Why I love dog sitting

How long have I been a dog lover? Forever! I volunteered at the SPCA during college and rescued two dogs of my own the moment I finished school. My husband and I joke that he needed to ask their permission to marry me. My husband volunteered for All4Paws rescue for many years and we fostered a number of dogs for them. My husband and I haven't had a day without dogs since we married 16 years ago. We are a dog family. Those of you who are dog-people, probably understand, from the depths of your soul, exactly what that means. We just love dogs.

About my yard

Our yard is 0.4 acres and the back is completely fenced in with a 6' high privacy fence. There's a small shed and a couple of bushes, I attached photos.

My experience administering medication

We have experience with both oral and injected meds as well as eye drops. Also, any special dietary needs can be catered to as well.

Stay @ home mom needs dogs to loveHavertown, PA

I'm a mother of two dog-loving teens ( the third is neutral) and one incredibly sweet and welcoming dog named Joe. I have a very flexible schedule all year, including holidays. I have a fair amount of experience with visually impaired, visually impaired/hearing impaired, epileptic, and diabetic dogs. Sign up with me and your best friend will go on outings, have plenty of play-time in our medium-sized and secure fenced-in yard (no diggers, bush breakers, and escape artists please), relax in the playhouse, and enjoy every inch of our 3-story home. My teen boys, husband, and the resident dog, Joe are all dog lovers and will add even more merriment to your doggie's day. I will carry over all your rules or lack thereof depending on your wishes.

Former Vet Nurse Who Loves Animals!Downingtown, PA

I worked as Manager and previously as a Vet Assistant at Downingtown Animal Hospital for 10 years and I love all animals! I would love to take care of your furry family member while you're away.

This year I decided to make caring for your pets my full time job. I don't even like calling it a "job" for caring for them never seems like work. They are a blessing!

I have 6 cats and two amazing rescue pups! Bear Bear (has crossed the rainbow bridge) was a foster failure from 6 years ago--I just couldn't let him go--and Lenny and Ellie came to me 3 years ago. (Both are with Bear Bear now) They were litter mates that I had been pet sitting for two years. The owner had to re-home them and I could not take the chance of them being separated (they are eleven) so I offered to love them till the end!

I am married and have two children ages 18 and 16 who also have a love of animals, so your pets won't want for attention!

Some of my most favorite house guests are the elderly and "special needs" I had a favorite basset named Lucy that is blind who visits us often. (She has since traveled the rainbow bridge).

I am able to administer medications, change doggie diapers, give injections, and give fluids under the skin if needed.

My back yard is fenced in and all my animals are used to me having "furry" sleepover guests.

I also have references available upon request!

Thank you for your consideration!

Home Full Time for Puppy Love!Media, PA

Caring for dogs has always been a huge passion of mine. There’s nothing like the love and happiness pups bring into our lives, and I feel that it’s my duty to give back to them however possible! From working for and even owning a pet rescue to dog sitting and beyond, I’ve tried to do whatever I can to bring happiness to dogs. I love bringing a smile to a dog’s face by making sure they have everything they need to thrive, and it’s just great to give owners peace of mind as well.

One of the best things about me as a sitter is that I am available full-time! That means that your pup and I will spend tons of time together when they’re under my care. No one likes to crate their dog up for hours on end while they’re away, so your pooch will enjoy tons of freedom! It also makes me a great option for dogs that are used to having a human presence around them, or for ones that would enjoy that!

When taking on a new client, I typically like to schedule a meet-and-greet. It’s a great way to make sure that we’re all a good fit for one another, which is so important to me. Likewise, it gives us the opportunity to chat face-to-face about your pup and your care expectations. No one knows your dog better than you do, so it’s always great to chat with owners in person about what makes their pup tick! Finally, I just love meeting new dogs! I like to get down on their level to show them that I’m a welcome presence here to make friends, and I’m sure we’ll be best buddies in no time at all.

I pride myself on a sense of professionalism when your pup is under my wing, and believe that all begins with excellent communication. I like to get as much info as I can about you and your pooch even before the stay begins! That way, I can get a good picture of your care expectations and what makes your pup happy. During the stay, I’ll send detailed daily updates, with notes on anything you need to be kept in the loop on, from meal prep to exercise times. And of course, those will always include accompanying pictures so you can see just how much fun we’re having together!

Loving Family to Welcome your Pet!Downingtown, PA

Since we were young children my wife and I have always had a love for animals of all kinds. As a teenager I was the go to guy in my neighborhood for pet sitting and my wife did and still does volunteer her time at local animal rescues. We understand how difficult it can be leaving your beloved pet in the care of a stranger which is why we strive to treat each and every dog as it was our own with loving care and playful attention!

Available in our own home or yours, we are available 7 days a week, 365 days per year. Dogs with special needs or medical requirements are welcomed.

*Rover gift cards and online deal vouchers always welcomed!

** First time Rover user? Ask for our coupon code for $20 off your first stay!

Why I love dog sitting

My wife and I have been dog lovers all of our lives. From my first dog Coco to Tiffany's German Shepherd she got on her 6th birthday we knew from an early age that we had a special connection with our furry friends!

Home full time, 1 acre shaded yardCLAYMONT, DE

I've cared for many dogs over the years, from tiny Pomeranians and Chihuahuas to large Saint Bernards and Ridgebacks. I'm attentive and dedicated to your pet's safety and enjoyment of their time with me.

Your pet will love staying at a park-like property in the woods. Our home is a ranch-style bungalow with only a half step entryway. Large enclosed porch and wooden deck for the dogs to run around and play.

I am experienced at walking large, powerful dogs and am able to walk multiple dogs at the same time. My home is located just 15 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport and is convenient to both 95, 495 and Philadelphia pike. In a rush? I can pick your pup up for a nominal fee.

Chemical Free Camp Rocky & AdrianElsmere, DE

Your fur baby will love it here because I now have more outside ground and we are across the street from the dog park. I have two Shichons under 20 lbs. They love other dogs and just want to play. They are 10 & 9 years old. I have a fenced in back yard on a corner property. Our home is COMPLETELY toxin free. I clean without chemicals for their Health and mine. I use only pure EO's and vinegar on all surfaces and floors. Even my laundry and linens are washed with EO based products. My furry children are non shedding, fixed and playful, as well. They are not aggressive and I am looking for small doggies like them to take care of when you need to leave them. I am home pretty much always other then quick trips to market or store. I am retired so this is my final career. Our nights are peaceful and we all sleep together unless doggies would rather be in their own beds. Their desires are respected at all times. You r welcome anytime to stop by and chat. I love them all.

Little Dog B&BCollegeville, PA

Please note that I do work full time, I can not do drop offs or pick ups during the work week during the day. All drop offs need to take place after 5 pm during the week, However, I am very flexible for weekend drop offs and pick ups.

I am not sitting until March.

At this time I am not accepting any new clients, only repeat clients. I only host tiny and small breed dogs.

I have recently moved and now live in a Townhouse. I no longer have a fenced yard but the neighborhood is dog friendly and there are plenty of places for walks. As a result of the move, all guest dogs must arrive with a harness and a leash and must be able to walk on a leash. The new house is a multi level home, so all dogs need to be able to handle one set of stairs which is 7 steps. If the guest dog weighs less than 20 pounds ,and can't do steps, I can carry them up and down.

Since I'm now in a smaller place with an HOA, I have to limit the number of dog guests to 1 at a time, with the exception of 2 from the same family. The guest dogs need to be house broken or crate trained, males will need to wear belly bands until I can assess whether they will attempt to mark inside the house. I can no longer host dogs that bark excessively out of respect for my neighbors.

I do work full time M-F and I'm gone for 8 1/2 hours during the day, but I'm home every night and weekends. I will be cutting my availability during the winter months due to having to walk the dogs verses letting them out in the yard.

The school year has started so I will only be working from home on Mondays. Due to my work schedule and my daughters school schedule, pick ups and drop offs that occur during the week are going to be after dinner between the hours of 6:30 and 8:00 pm.

I have a 11 year old daughter, who LOVES animals so all guests need to be tolerant of children. .

There are no resident dogs in the house but there is 1 young cat that is dog friendly. If your dog is not cat tolerant or will bark at the cat, we are unfortunately not the host for you.

If your dog is crate trained please bring your crate it helps the dog feel more comfortable if he or she is in her own crate. I do have a spare crate that if you prefer you can just bring their bedding and we can use my crate.

I can administer oral medication as well as Sub Q fluids and diabetic injections. I live 3 miles from a 24 hour Vet Emergency hospital.

All dogs must be on a flea preventative treatment and should be current on vaccines and heartworm prevention.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Enjoy your vacation!

Home all day, large fenced yardPHOENIXVILLE, PA

I would like to be a part of your doggie's life! I love dogs and have taken care of many. I am not quite ready to get another after losing my 15 year old Rascal last year. It would be my pleasure to get to know and share your pet. My husband and I are recent "empty nesters" and animal lovers ready to show your pet some love and attention. I enjoy getting down on the floor and playing with pets. Whether it's outside throwing a ball, going for a leisurely walk, or just brushing and petting, I love seeing a wagging tale! All these loves have such unique personalities to share with us! Please let me share your pet for a bit! Thank you!
