About Roxanne

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ROXY & ROVER - Located in Southview SE Calgary.

We aim to care for your furry, feathered, gilled and scaly family members with tenderness and love. There is a large off leash area very close to our home. Willing to accommodate a detailed care plan if required for your pet.

A day in our home includes lots of play, walks, freedom to roam and snuggles (of course). We also aim to clean our home and everything in it with natural non-toxic products and essential oils. And, during a stay here with Roxy she will spend time with them even in the backyard when they're out for quick break. See our photo gallery to see the heated shed in the yard for winter paw warm ups.

Roxy has had her dog Nikita for 15 years who is currently taking care of her father, he needs companionship through retirement. Nikita is greatly missed but she takes great care of the Old Man. Pets in the house make it a home.

We attached some photos of the Rovers that Roxy has cared for over the past 10 years, they vary in breed, size and have generally been of the furry kind. There have been many friends and family members that have requested her assistance in caring for pets while they were away from home and giving themselves the gift of being truly on vacation.

We ask pet owners to be up front about pets behaviour and pitfalls. We can be better prepared and won't refuse a pet just because they often whine or have a little extra personality, we know what to do!

Be sure to add all of your pets to your profile as they will be need to be included in the insurance portion of the fees - just in case.

Looking forward to meeting You and Rover.

With Love,
Roxy & Rover

Roxanne is just an extremely loving person and I trust her immensely with my baby (ie my sweet doggie). Added bonus, she has a great backyard that's fully fenced in.

Roxanne looked after our dogs Burton and Hudson for a week while we were away! Hudson has some separation anxiety so has a tendency to get stressed when we leave him for an extended period of time. They both did amazing with Roxanne, they got to stay home which was great and she took them for plenty of walks and gave them lots of cuddles! They didn't even notice we were gone! I would highly recommend her :)

Roxanne keeps up with our dog Shaydee who is a high energy pit bull and wont leave her alone whenever she comes to visit!
She has a huge heart that she shares with any animal or person ive ever seen her with, and fun loving so she can play for hours with a dog like shaydee or match the energies of a dog thats much quieter and give them the quiet attention they are wanting.
She is very attentive and reads aninal non verval communication well so that she is always ready for whatever the situation calls for or that an animal may need.
In short- shes got a huge aninal heart and will take great care of anyones 4 legged companion!

Roxanne was so quick to respond, which was so much appreciated with the last minute request for two dogs. I'm pretty sure my babes didn't want to leave. Highly recommend her loving home.
Roxy was great with Brinkley, we were traveling from Saskatchewan and needed daycare for the day on short notice and it was Roxy to the rescue! Brinkley had so much fun and she sent updates and photos throughout the day! Would book her services again and recommend her to everyone! Thank you again Roxy!
My puppy enjoyed her stay with Roxanne. It was great to get daily update about my puppy, thank you so much for hanging out with my crazy puppy.
Roxy took really great care of my rather shy dog whom I was worried about settling without me there. However, I need not have worried! When I came to pick Emmy up it was very obvious she had already bonded with Roxy and was in no hurry to leave and come home with me. Roxy also sent me pictures during the day which helped reassure me as well. I won't hesitate to leave Emmy with Roxy again and it is great to go away knowing our dog is cared for just as well as she is with us.
Roxanne was amazing. She provided the great care my 11 years old dog required. I will definitely ask Roxanne to help us next time we go out of town.
Roxy was an excellent host for our 9 week old rhodesian ridgeback puppy Ellie. Ellie had plenty of exercise playing with other dogs, both inside and outside. Roxy has a nice garden behind her house where the dogs get to play. She is also a huge dog lover and sent us updates daily. Of course taking care of a small puppy is a lot more work than an adult dog since she doesn't have all the proper manners yet and is a bit wild at times. Would highly recommend.
Roxy was a great dog sitter and I was very impressed with the service! She sent photos of my puppy daily which kept me assured that my puppy was doing great and allowed me to enjoy my vacation. Overall she was an incredible sitter and I would definitely recommend her!
Roxanne clearly loves animals! She's sweet and patient and my dog had a great experience. We were away for 2 weeks and Roxanne sent daily updates with pictures and notes. We were very confident our dog was in good hands.
Roxanne was great. Leaving your pup with somebody you don't know can be unsettling, but immediately after the meet and greet I felt better.

Every day she sent pictures with messages through the app. Chase had a great time, and Roxanne even dropped Chase off with a friend while I was on my way back into town. Super convenient and hassle free!

Should the need arise I would not hesitate to contact Roxanne again!
Roxanne was great with Nanuq. I got plenty of updates and Nanuq was very happy with her stay. I would definitely book another stay with Roxanne again.
