The BEST place for your dogs when they're not with you!

Welcome 2020!

Friday, January 10, 2020

As we begin a new year and in fact, a new decade, some of us have made our resolutions to shape up and maybe even lose a few of those extra pounds. If you’re a pet parent, you probably know that it’s also important for your pup to maintain a healthy weight. While we know we need to sometimes resist those adorable eyes and withhold the table scraps or extra treats, there are other steps to helping your dog stay fit and trim. Check out the links below for informative and helpful information regarding canine weight management and be sure to talk to your veterinarian about your special friends’ weight and health.

If you’ve decided to implement a weight plan for your dog, be sure to let the Rover team know so we can help you meet your goals. Of course, we think bringing your dogs to Rover Come Over to burn some calories with their buddies is one great way to keep them happy and healthy!

Winter Weather Info

Friday, January 10, 2020

Though our winter has been relatively mild thus far, we all know living in Northwest Ohio means dealing with winter storms. Be assured Rover Come Over will remain open if at all possible. With that in mind we are providing information regarding Rover Come Over practices during inclement winter weather.

  • Rover Come Over will remain open and ready to care for your dogs during most snow emergency days.
  • While it is our goal to remain open on all days, Level III Snow Emergencies issued by Lucas County authorities dictate that "no person except operators of public safety vehicles on duty or otherwise responding to an emergency; and essential news media personnel, including reporters, support, and production employees; health care and other emergency personnel; and essential employees of critical infrastructure facilities, may drive on roads and streets in Lucas County. All others traveling on the roadways might be subject to arrest."
  • We understand that some of our customers fall into these essential personnel categories. If this applies to you, please call Rover Come Over's emergency line, 419-386-9317 and we'll do our best to make arrangements for your dog's care.
  • During extreme weather, we consider multiple variables before closing the daycare (temperature, road conditions, wind chill factors, etc.). When temperatures reach the single digits or during heavy snow/ice periods, it's best to check (see below) before bringing your dog to Rover. 
  • If Rover Come Over closes, we will notify our customers via email, Facebook and on the Rover Come Over Home Page. We also provide a text alert service for those customers who wish to receive timely alerts. We encourage all customers to sign up HERE for these alerts. Lastly, our 419-861-9100 phone message will announce any daycare closings.
  • Rover's priority is to ensure all of our dogs are safe. If you should lose power and require emergency kenneling of your dog, call our dedicated emergency line 419-386-9317 and we'll be happy to help.
  • If you are unable to pick up your dog on the days we are open, please give us a call (419-861-9100) before 6:30 pm to arrange for an overnight stay. (Overnight charges apply.)
  • Most of our dogs love the winter weather and we encourage outdoor play as the weather allows. The extreme low temperatures and bad weather days are few, but be assured during extreme cold weather, outdoor time will be adjusted as conditions warrant.
