About Roxanne

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

** Please Note: Only booking for pet care at guests homes for April & October 2017 due to family visiting through vacation season. This service is also available throughout the year - see our calendar for availability **

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. 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 15 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!

Please read this part carefully... it's not very clear before the booking process: *Be sure to add all of your pets to your profile as they will be need to be included for insurance purposes (just in case). Fees are charged on a per pet basis*

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!

Roxy is amazing! She is a natural with the animals. We are confident she will take the best care of our family.
We have left our pup with Roxy twice, and are very happy with the service! Roxy was accommodating and genuinely interested in what our dog needed to be comfortable. She had no problem with the last minute ear meds that we had to send with him. Our dog was well taken care of and happy. I appreciated the daily photo and update that Roxy sent to us. Thanks!
