Olivia and Otis Pet Sitting is Licensed, Bonded, and Insured.

My name is Olivia Reynolds and I look forward to meeting your dog! I have been around animals all my life, from dogs and cats, to rabbits, birds, and horses. I have over 15 years experience taking care of other people's pets and will care for your pet as well as I care for my own.

Otis (my dog and business partner) is a member of my family. Otis recently got a sister, Carmen, who is fitting in perfectly in our home. When your dog stays with me, they will be a part of our family. I believe that while you are on vacation, your dog deserves a vacation of their own. I will spoil your dog with extra attention, play time, and treats (as permitted) while they stay with me and will do everything I can to prevent them from being stressed or anxious while you are away.

I have a clean home, a small fenced-in backyard, and no children. Caring for your pets is my full time job. Besides boarding at my home, I also offer drop-in visits, walks, and day care. I have experience with many different breeds and have cared for dogs of all sizes, temperament, and personality. I also offer my services to your cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles, or anything else with fur, feathers, or scales.

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!

Custom quotes for multiple dogs and extended visits.

I am no longer accepting "new" reservations for x-large dogs. If you have boarded your large or x-large dogs with me prior to this decision, I will continue to accept them. Message me if you have any questions.

I'm a retired teacher of small children for 46 years and a dog lover forever. Dogs and children are the loves of my life. I have owned, rescued and lovingly cared for many dogs over the years, often putting their needs before my own.

I am located two blocks from the Ridley Park Exit off 95 and 10 minutes from the Philadelphia Airport. Easy drop off and pick up if traveling by air.

Being retired, I have plenty of time to spend with my own two fur babies but would love to provide a happy and safe environment for your doggy as well, while you are at work or on vacation. Have a large fenced in yard.

Your dogs will be lovingly cared for, whether inside or out and will have the run of the house to be wherever I am. Looking forward to caring for you pet at his home away from home.

Your Dog's Home Away From HomeBear, DE

I love all animals. My family and I have a dog, Lucky and two cats Meesha and Luna. We rescued all our pets. They are such a big part of me and my son’s life. Your pet would have free roam of the house -furniture and all. I have a big fenced in back yard, a pool for the doggies and a park for walks close by.

Why I love dog sitting

I have loved dogs all my life! I always got in trouble for bringing home strays.

I love all animals!

About my yard

I have a large fenced in backyard. A lot of shade- a lot of space to run and play. I have a doggy pool for dogs in the summer as well.

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 9 & 8 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.

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.

Home full-time, shaded fenced yardWILMINGTON, DE

A dog has been a member of my family all my life (a rescued pit bull (most recent), a lab, a poodle, dachshunds ) throughout my life. My dog is an English Setter and Cocker Spaniel mix. My friends call me the dog whisperer. I work from home so potty breaks can happen as needed. I have a peaceful home and am a peaceful person. The backyard is fenced with lots of shade and green grass I will match the dog's routine as closely as possible. If your dog is normally sleeps in a crate bring it along and we will decide the best place for sleep. The neighborhood is quiet so can walk your dog on a leash or can take it to a nearby state park. In the summertime there is a bone shaped swimming pool for cooling off.

Play, Walks, Cuddles, & Fenced YardNewark, DE

I am a single Darling with no kids. All my children have paws. My grand nieces and nephew ages 4 years to 7 love earning their dollar bills helping me take care of the doggies and kitties. I also have a gentleman roommate (age 55) who comes out of his room once in a while to visit and play. I am an Uber driver and work part time when it suits me and your fur baby. I love pets and truly, deeply, miss my Muggsy of 13 years. Doggies have free roam of the house and I have a huge fenced in back yard. If they spend the night, they are welcome in my bed with me but I camp in the living room with them a lot. I have tons of love to give and take them on fun walks. Always petting heads, rubbing bellies, and massaging sore muscles. I have a pet friendly house and we co-exist with them. We are happy here, and all in harmony. Your doggie is welcome to join us, no matter where they put their paws. So why not treat your doggie to a va-cay while you are away.

Animal Lover ExtraordinaireNewtown Square, PA

I have owned dogs for over 57 years, and have extensive experience with many breeds and personalities. Located on a serene horse farm, your dog will have the run of a large secured back yard. When tired, they can come in and relax in the farmhouse. Because I live onsite, I work from home. Plenty of hands on time and TLC occurs during the day. At night, your dog has its choice of sleeping in a bed or wherever they are comfortable. While they have no contact with the farm animals. they will be entertained watching them from the security of their locked/fenced in yard. A quiet and peaceful environment awaits your pooch, ready to be pampered and loved. We adore our dogs and give them respect, along with healthy boundaries. NOTICE: I have a different price point for dogs that are under 40 pounds. My fee will be reduced by $10.00 for dogs under 40 pounds. ($55.00) My listed price point is for dogs 40 pounds and larger. UPDATED INFO: I have a two day stay minimum. I feel that is better for the dog, and allows them to adjust better to the environment.

NEW OPTION! Is your dog unable to be with other dogs? As long as they are comfortable being in their own space, and if I am not too busy, I can offer care to them. They will still go outside several times a day. I can house them in a separate area of the house, and they will not have contact with my dogs. Great for dogs with medical issues, or ones that do not acclimate to others well.

Mindy was great! Initially she wanted to know all of the details and idiosyncracies of your dog. She sent pictures every day and sent small blurbs about his day. Tito and Mindy seemed to bond over the long weekend and we could tell that he interacted well with her.
