About Scarlet

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Whether a vacation or just a weekend get away, if you have to leave your dog behind, you want to have the peace of mind it's with an experienced caregiver. You want the best!

That's where Rover-Come-Over in-home boarding can meet you and your dog's needs.

With more than 30 years experience as a dog lover/owner, 20 years working with therapy dogs in nursing homes, schools and hospitals and 15 years involved in dog training, I can provide not only personal and professional attention to your pet while in my home, but also the affection that will keep him or her happy until you return.

Simply stated, Rover-Come-Over will treat your dog like royalty. Your pet will be walked on four shaded acres, have a playmate, Josie, my lovable yellow Lab, and go for car rides. There is also an outside fenced area for potty breaks.

The care of elderly dogs is not a problem. They will be right at home with Aunt Bea, a small 15 year old who is legally blind, deaf and has no teeth; one of my rescues with a sweet disposition. Previous dogs of mine have lived 17 and 18 years. Whatever the special need for your dog, it will be met at Rover-Come-Over for your worry free get away.

Even though I work outside the home, I am less than 5 minutes away. They are never left alone over 4 hours.

$23/night for one dog, and discounts on multiple dogs. Ask me for a Custom Quote if you have multiple dogs!

Scarlet has been a very kind and warm puppy sitter. She let my dog sleep on the couch, made home cookies, and cooked farm eggs. She also send my dog's pictures to me everyday. When I picked up my dog, I could tell that she has been taken very good care. She was healthy, clean and happy. I also found dog cookies as sweet gifts from Scarlet when we arrived home.
My plane was delayed so it took me another 4 hours to return, while Scarlet agreed to reschedule our pick-up time with no hesitation.
I will definitely recommend her to my friends and come back to her whenever I have my next trip!
Scarlet did outstanding job taken care of my 2 dogs. plus she kept us updated on behavior and sent us daily pictures.
Scarlet was amazing and helpful from booking through to our dogs' stay. She took on a unique breed (newfoundlands) with aplomb and I'm pretty sure by the end of their vacation they loved her more than us! Her love for dogs is obvious and that makes it so much easier to not worry about your fur babies while you're away. We will for sure be using Scarlet again, if she will have us! (Newfies are gross!)
Scarlet's home is organized with the dog's best interest in mind. I was very confident leaving my dog in her care.
Scarlet made both of my dogs feel right at home. She made special doggie treats for them and sent me texts and pictures during their stay. I know they will enjoy going back there in the future!
Scarlet was amazing with our French bulldog babies Bruce and Layla! We loved that she sent us pictures every day showing us what the pups were doing. She treated them like they were her own and constantly told us how wonderful it was to have them. It seemed like Bruce and Layla had lots of fun playing with each other, in the leaves and all over her large yard. Scarlet was so generous giving the pups her attention and love. When we came to pick them up (we were so grateful she was able to keep them for an extra hour due to our flight delay) Scarlet even bought us a bag with a French bulldog on it (I used it for groceries that same day!). We will definitely be coming back to Scarlet before we leave Kansas. We would recommend her to anyone!
Excellent communication throughout the whole process from start to finish! My dogs appear to be healthy, happy and even a little better behaved. I would use Scarlet again in the future.
We take Truman to no one but Scarlett when we leave town and he can't accompany us. She's the best!
This was our first time using a dog sitter and Scarlet made it an incredible experience. I would highly recommend her. We will be using her services again.
Scarlet is extraordinary! She went above and beyond for my family during a tragedy. She rearranged her schedule to extend my days. Scarlet kept in contact with us daily to help relieve stress and sent pictures updating us on our babies. We had no worries while they were in her care. As a matter of fact, the babies ran straight to her when we dropped them off. They knew they were really on vacation.
Have no fear with Scarlet. She is dedicated, trustworthy, dependable, caring and genuinely loves animals. She is always gentle with our Cheagle and Pit Bull aka "babies". Not many people will care for our them like we desire; however Scarlet does. We love her because she is simply the best!!!!!

Scarlet did an awesome job with my Doberman, Hades. She spoils the dogs like they are her own!! She is very flexible and kind. We will definitely be giving her a call when we need a dog sitter again!! Thanks Scarlet!!
Scarlet was incredible with Crosby! It takes him a while to get used to new places, but she treated him like her own to help him through the process. She really put me at ease knowing Crosby was in such good hands. He can't wait to see her again :) We will definitely stay with Scarlet in the future.
Zorro had so much fun he hardly noticed I was gone !
Scarlet took such great care of Lucy while we were away! It is such a relief to not have to worry about your pet and to be able to relax and enjoy your vacation! Lucy was very well cared for and we will not hesitate to use Scarlet again for our next trip!
Scarlet is the BEST dog sitter! Bella feels safe and secure in Scarlet's home. When storms come through, Bella does not sense them, which is a good thing since Bella is terrified of thunder. =)

My husband and I left for a week long vacation in Santa Barbara, CA (to get married) and we knew Bella would be in good hands. We received daily updates with photos.

Scarlet had a picnic for Bella on Memorial Day, a picnic with home cooked food which Bella LOVED! Thank you Scarlet for being such a great host for a fur baby, Bella!
Scarlet has an incredible heart for animals which is evident in how our dog thrived in her care.
She kept us updated every day and took care of our dog as if she was her own. She has a wonderful home, and it's evident she has put considerable time into ensuring a safe and caring environment for the pets in her care.
My little Shih Tzu had a wonderful visit with Scarlet. She was very helpful and flexible with the reservation when some unexpected bumps occurred on my end and Teddy ran to her when he returned to her house. Scarlet sent me regular pictures and kept me apprised of his activities. I was very pleased with her care of him.
Perfect staycation for Lucie! Scarlet, once again, made our little vacation worry-free! ❤️❤️
Scarlet was fantastic! My dog was so happy and content, settled in like he was at home. She sent a picture every day showing his activities. I have already scheduled his next stay.
Outstanding service provided by Scarlet! Both Oliver and Lilly felt right at home. Scarlett provided updates and we did not have any concerns. Now we did buy more dog toys after seeing Oliver playing with the unlimited toys at scarlet's home.
A happy pet makes a happy home.

Thanks Scarlet! Oliver and Lilly says 'woofaroo!!!' That means they had lots of fun and want to come back real soon. Lol
Scarlet is awesome, thanks!
Once again Maddie stayed a week with Scarlet and had so much fun! I love the pictures and texts to see what she is doing. She gets her normal exercise routine of walking and playing in the country and we are grateful for that. She is such a high energy dog! We honestly think she would never notice if we didn't come back, she is that comfortable being there. Thank you Scarlet for making her stays like being at home!

Gracie was taken care of very well. She seemed happy and content. Scarlet sent lots of pictures and kept me informed of Gracie's condition everyday. Gracie has allergies so i was anxious leaving her with anybody . I dont have to be anxious any longer .
Scarlet took great care of our Granddog Jamo. Sent pictures daily to his mom and dad. It was his first time away from home and he did great. We intend to recommend Scarlet to our family and friends.
Wonderful host, certainly knows how to take care of Charlie.
At the last minute, we needed a sitter for our dog, Shep. Scarlet was most accommadating! We scheduled a meet and greet, and we were reassured by what we saw and heard that Shep would be safe and well cared for. Thank you, Scarlet!
Once again Scarlet was an amazing dog sitter! Kept me updated with pictures and texts throughout the holidays and spoiled my girl as if she was one of her own.
Our two senior dogs Shane and Jackson feel right at home with Scarlet at 'Rover Come Over'. Scarlet encourages our dogs to lounge on the couch or watch her cooking Christmas dinner in the kitchen. Scarlet doesn't mind if Shane needs to go outside at 2AM. She provides safe and healthy treats for them and even arranged for photos with Santa Claus. When we travel our minds are at ease knowing Scarlet is taking care of our senior pups! Thank you Scarlet!
Based upon face-to-face, text updates, and frequent pictures, I'm confident our little guy enjoyed Scarlet's company as much as we did. As a layperson wanting their four-legged friend treated like family, and as a veterinarian looking out for their medical best interests, I had zero qualms or concerns leaving our guy under Scarlet's care. Thank you again Ma'am, and I wish you and your future clients only the very best!
Scarlet took my dog Oscar to the dog park, took him on walks, sent me pictures while gone etc.. When I went to pick Oscar up Scarlet had him out for a walk. When she came back she gave me the leash and walked back into the house to get his belongings. Oscar did not want to get in the car he wanted to follow Scarlet into the house. The problem with Scarlet is she spoils your dog. Oscar is happy now at home but when I picked him up I think he did not want to leave Scarlet!!!!! Scarlet goes out of her way to take care of your dog!!
Scarlet was a fabulous host for Eric. She was easy to get in touch with and was quick to reply to messages. We received regular updates and photos of Eric having a wonderful time on HIS holiday! We will absolutely use Scarlet again.
Our Great Dane loves Scarlet and we do too. She walked Luna regularly and sent us pictures throughout our trip! She makes every dog a part of her family. We will definitely be booking with her again.
Oh gosh, we've used Scarlet multiple times now and when Maddie comes home we think she is really sad because she gets so much attention from Scarlet and her pal Josie. We highly recommend Scarlet to anyone that is contemplating leaving their dog and worrying about them because believe me, you will get texts and pictures and they always seem to be having a great time! Maddie even got to go to a birthday party this time, with hats and all, how fun for her! She is already booked again for another trip!

Scarlet is fabulous! She sent us pictures and updates almost daily. It was great to vacation knowing our puppy was receiving terrific care.
We can go on vacation knowing our 4 legged family members are in good hands! Scarlet does an outstanding job in caring for our dogs!! I would highly recommend Scarlet to anyone who wants to ensure their pets are well taken care of while they are out of town!!
Scarlet provides a safe and loving environment for our three senior dogs and offers extra-special attention to those with special needs like our sweet senior dachshund Roscoe. We know all our dogs are receiving great care when they stay with Scarlet and they feel as loved and relaxed as when they are at home. Thank you Scarlet!
Bella came home relaxed and playful after spending 3 days/nights with Scarlet. She receives a lot of attention, which Bella loves! This particular visit Bella got to meet a lot of people since Scarlet was hosting a garage sale. I am told Bella was a big hit at the garage sale.

We especially appreciated the daily photos and text updates on Bella.

Thanks Scarlet for taking such good care of our 4-legged angel, Bella! We can't imagine having Bella stay with anyone else when we need to board her.

Scarlet was great, from the day we met her for a meet and greet session, we could tell that our pups would be well taken care of. Scarlet was very good about sending pictures and keeping us updated of how our pups were doing, we could tell that they were being spoiled, as well as having their own little vacation with Scarlet, she even gave them a going away party on the last day that they were there, with ice cream and their own bandana. We love Scarlet, our pups love Scarlet, they actually miss her. If you love you pets and want they well cared for while you are away, please take them to Scarlet, she is the best, highly recommended her to my friends and anyone that is reading this. Thank you Scarlet for loving our pups as your own.
Our dogs came home like little children returning from camp. Scarlet did a great job and it seems our dogs felt right at home with her. We now have a dog-sitter we can count on. We appreciated the daily updates and pictures.
I am extremely satisfied with the care Pippa received while visiting Scarlet. I was updated with texts and pictures regularly. I really appreciated the exercise and attention Scarlet provided because Pippa can be quite a couch potato and a bit "needy." Since I have an 'only dog,' socializing with other dogs was great. I highly recommend Scarlet as a super sitter!
Scarlet watched our two dogs for the first time for almost a week. We have one peek-a-poo and one Rat terrier. Scarlet sent us daily texts or often more than once a day and pictures of their stay and activities. I believe they were really spoiled by her. They received cool treats, regular walks, special meals on weekends, massages and a going away party! They certainly received better treatment than we ever expected and possibly better than they actually get at home. She wants the dogs to have a no cage atmosphere if that is what they are used to and she does just that. My one dog preferred in her cage with door open but she does that at home as well. We will certainly use Scarlet again if we need to find a place for them to stay while we are away.

What can I say.....Scarlet was the ultimate dog sitter/surrogate dog-mom! Your vacation is care free because you know your baby is being well taken care of. She spoiled Lucie like we do.....and that was okay by us! ❤️ Thank you Scarlet...Lucie will miss her second home!
Scarlet provides a secure and loving home for Shane, Roscoe, and Jackson. All three dogs were comfortable in Scarlet's home and cared for as if they were at home in their own living room. We can't thank Scarlet enough for her kindness and attention for our 3 senior dogs.
Scarlet as usual took VERY good care of Bear and Murph! They were very happy and I did not have to worry about them while we were on vacation!!
We have now used Scarlet multiple times for our dog Maddie. This time she was there about a week and a half which is the longest yet. While we really miss Maddie, we get daily texts and pictures of what she is up to which really helps. Maddie is always treated as if she is her pet and I think that is the most important reason we love taking her to Scarlet. Even when I've told her she can kennel her for whatever reason, she feels that since she isn't in the kennel at our home, she won't be there either. When I talk with friends that take their pets to places that kennel them all day long, it makes me sad because if you have a pet that is part of the family, they should be a part of the borrowed family. Thank you Scarlet!!! So glad we found you!!
Scarlet was a fabulous host to our fur-baby Bella (4 lb. 5-year-old Morkie). We were initially worried about leaving Bella with anyone because she got so sick (mostly home-sick) the last time we had her stay with someone (my sister). Bella has never been away from us for more than a day or two, this particular stay was the longest we've ever left Bella with anyone.

Scarlet made sure Bella felt at home by providing her a safe and friendly environment; lots of walks, cuddle time, and homemade breakfast on the weekends! =)

Bella now has a new favorite, scrambled egg with a little cheese or hard boiled egg (w/just a small amount of yolk) for special meals. She devours in no time!

We received a daily text message and photo which helped put our minds at ease while on vacation. =)

We plan to use Scarlet for ALL our dog sitting needs. Scarlet is wonderful and keeps Bella at ease when we can't be with her. With Scarlet taking care of your dog, you can truly enjoy your time away. =)
Scarlet is wonderful!! I know that Mortimer is in the best possible place while I'm gone. Scarlet's daily text messages and photos keep you in touch and secure in the knowledge that your dog is safe and happy. Wouldn't think of letting anybody else take care of my best friend.
Scarlet always goes out of her way to go the extra mile with our dog Oscar. She sent me a text telling me Oscar was ready for bed one night. She also sent me a picture in a text on the 4th of July with Oscar with a Red White & Blue bandana around his neck. She really does do a great job of taking care of your dog!
Scarlet was great with our dog. Usually, when we pick her up she yelps and whines because she was so anxious to be away from us but this time, although she was excited to see me, there was no yelping or whining. I could tell she felt at home and had lots of personal attention. I'm so glad we have found someone in the area that makes Kalina feel so at home even when we are traveling and she can't be in her own home.
Scarlet took very good care of my 2 dogs. She walked them frequently and took great care of my special needs dog who is blind. I highly recommend her if you want your dog(s) to be pampered and received personalized care. She sent us daily messages letting us know how the dogs were doing often accompanied with pictures! We will definitely use Scarlet again
Scarlet did a fantastic job with our dog this weekend! She sent us updates, pictures and went above and beyond. We will definitely use her again! Thank you again for a great experience.
Just wonderful.......
Another impressive second visit to Scarlet's. My dogs were VERY well taken care of, which is exactly why I would choose Scarlet over any other pet hotel or pet-sitting service. Scarlet treated Chewbacca and Ronon like family, as was evident by her sending photo texts and updates often. My dogs were not stuck in a kennel--they live and sleep in her home, which is very warm and inviting. She consistently goes above and beyond any other pet-sitters, offering special treats and providing one-on-one attention. I highly recommend Scarlet to anybody looking for a reliable, friendly, and hospitable host for their pups. Thank you, Scarlet! Chewy and Ronon look forward to their next visit!
Scarlet is awesome. She is clearly a true dog lover and seems to have the time and space in her life to devote to taking excellent care of her guest pooches. She kept me updated through my time away with short text messages and photos so I did not feel worried and did not miss my dogs so much. I brought three large dogs all at once to Scarlet, two of them young, and she was able to handle them with ease. They all reported a happy and fun-filled stay!
Extremely happy with our host! Already have next vacation booked with her
Windsor recommends you get your reservation in to have your vacation with Scarlet!! And so does Debbie Moulden
Scarlet is by far the best dog sitter we have ever had. She loved our dog Nacho as if she were her own! Scarlet took her out on walks and to play with other dogs. She let Nacho sleep on a pillow next to her bed! She gave Nacho special treats and even had Santa come visit her at Christmas! She clearly loves animals so we didn't have to worry a bit about Nacho while we were gone. Scarlet sent us regular updates and photos, which was reassuring and fun. You will be 100% satisfied if you leave your pooch with Scarlet!
I knew when I left for my trip to Europe that my four dogs (Rufus, Shane, Roscoe, and Jackson) were in good hands with Scarlet at Rover Come Over. However, I didn't realize at the time what a loving and caring environment Scarlet would provide. My four dogs are seniors ranging in age from 9 to 14 and several of them have special needs to attend to. Scarlet was simply wonderful with each of them while giving special attention to each dog. She didn't just care for my dogs, she got to know them on an emotional level ... and did her best to make them feel secure, comfortable, and loved in her home. I could not have found a better refuge for my dogs to be safe, well-cared for and loved during my absence. Thank you Scarlet for taking care of my doggies so well! I can't thank you enough!
This was Maddie's second visit to Scarlet and what a wonderful experience not only for Maddie but for us too! Leaving her for a full week was hard on us but knowing she is getting the care she would get at home gave us so much relief. She sends pictures and texts about what she is doing . . . like eating all of her treats at one time! That is so Maddie! It does our heart good to see how excited she gets when she sees Josie and Aunt Bea too. With that excitement you know it is all good. Thank you Scarlet for being there for Maddie and providing such a great home away from home experience for her! Del and Gary
I have boarded Oscar at other places. All good kennels. Oscar was always very happy to see me when I picked him up. When I got Oscar back from
Scarlet's he didn't seem that happy! In fact when we backed out of the driveway he didn't take his eyes off of her. I think Scarlet spoiled him. When we refer to Scarlet now with Oscar we have to call her Aunt Scarlet or he gets mad. Scarlet goes out of her way to be good to all dogs. She is a true dog lover!
Scarlet treated our dogs like family! She gave them very personal attention and sent multiple updates, including pictures, via text message --a personal touch I've never encountered before. Also, when I picked them up, she provided a letter explaining how well behaved they were, their routine, and how much they missed me--all from their perspective! I definitely recommend Scarlet to anybody looking for personal care for they pups, because she definitely takes GREAT care of doggies. She took mine for walks around the neighborhood and even to the dog park! WOW! Reserve her now before she gets booked up!
We can't thank Scarlet enough for allowing Maddie to come into her home and be treated as well as she is at our home. The bonus is Maddie got to be around her two dogs, Josie and Aunt Bea. Josie was Maddie's immediate friend. It is now allowing us to leave her and feel comfortable about it. We can't wait for Maddie to be able to go back again in December!
Scarlet is fabulous!!! My biggest concern about leaving town for 2 weeks was regarding the care of my dog Mortimer. Scarlet is heaven-sent - after the first time you meet her you just know this is the place you want you baby to stay if he can't be with you. When I picked Mortimer up he was happy and healthy and in love with Scarlet and her dog Josey. Would never leave him anywhere else again. Thank you Scarlet! P.S. - Note to Dogvacay - I hope you know how lucky you are to have her. Sue and Mortimer.
Words simply can not express how thrilled I am to have found Scarlet! She truly LOVES dogs . My Lily received love and excellent care from her. Lily continues to go to her 3X a week.
Scarlet has a wonderful home and lifestyle to make our Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Helen at home.
She didn't even want to leave!
Since we were traveling into the area for a wedding, I was apprehensive at boarding Helen in a Kennel that I had not inspected, or had someone personally review for me. Stumbling around on the internet, I found DoVacay and looked at options in the area.
Scarlet's page appealed to me and after calling and talking, I was confident with Scarlet's communication. Knowing Helen would be in a home like atmosphere to take her there with little time to spare before the rehearsal.
Scarlet's dog, Josie was a friendly sweet girl, I knew Helen would get along with.
Scarlet's home is pet friendly, clean and hospitable. I highly recommend Rover Come Over.
What an awesome experience to go on vacation and know your puppy kids are in great hands. Scarlet was excellent with providing updates and went the extra mile. We had peace of mind knowing they were well taken care of and receiving play time and love. Would highly recommend!! We had four dogs and Scarlet took well care of each one and provided photos of each while we were traveling and provided a summary of their stay! We will use Scarlet anytime we go out of town from now on. Will tell friends and family about her! Thanks so much for everything and they will be back :)
Albert Loved his stay at "Rover Come Over" the host has two dogs and Albert loved the company, he got to go on walks and given special dog cookies as treats.
