Someone's a little obsessed with dogs.
Playing fetch, long walks on a sunshiny day, smooching the top of a pooch's head, happy puppy snorts...sometimes it's the littlest things that make me happiest to be a dog sitter.
In addition to being a dog-mom to a dog who had seizures, I am experienced with
+ Senior dogs
+ High energy pups
+ Administering oral medication
+ Rescue dogs and those with special behavior/emotional needs
+ Dogs who aren't dog- or stranger- friendly.
...and, of course, dogs who want to be snuggled, held, and played with 24/7
When I dog sit...
+ I typically spend 18-24 hours per day with your dog, though my record is 55 straight hours with one adorable pooch.
+ You can specify if you want your dog to have 2, 3 or 4 walks per day (and/or frequent, short potty breaks). I typically walk dogs for up to 2 hours per day.
+ I'm happy to share a bed with your pup at night, but also understand that some dogs are more comfortable sleeping alone and/or in a crate.
+ Your dog will receive TONS of cuddles, doggy massages, affection and be treated with love, kindness, and respect.
+ I send detailed emails every 1-2 days with pictures and am always reachable via text or phone.
+ For stays exceeding five nights - and for dogs that are amenable to it - I'm happy to give your pup a bath before I leave.
+ I can gather the mail/newspaper and water indoor plants as instructed.
+ If in-unit laundry facilities are available, I will change the bedding and wash any towels before I leave. If they're not available, I will strip the bed.
*the 18 hour per day applies to Sat/Sun and 3 weekdays. I have to go into work the other 2 weekdays, so these include - at minimum - morning/evening walks and overnight. My boyfriend, (his DogVacay profile is below), oftentimes will be able to swing by and/or spend the whole day with your pup if he isn't booked. Otherwise, I suggest you have a dog walker to come mid-day; I'm happy to suggest dog walking services or arrange a walker on your behalf.
Am I already booked and you want another recommendation? This is the only person I trust with dogs I love/sit for: https://dogvacay.com/i-adore-all-dogs-including-yours-dog-boarding-418212?sm=cam
