About Me

Our home is in a lovely neighborhood with a walking trail winding throughout the entire area. My home is on a cul de sac with a pie shaped lot making the back yard quite large. If I stand in one end of the yard I can throw the ball full strength and not hit the opposite fence. We keep the yard clean and maintained so the doggy fun is safe and sanitary. I also have a nice deck where older dogs love to sun themselves on fine days.
Dog sitting is my full time job and thus I am with your baby 24/7. When I do have to go out to run errands and such I coordinate with my husband or our roommate to be sure the dogs are not left unattended.
All dogs sleep in my bedroom each night so that the whole pack is together and feels secure. They can sleep either loose on their blankets from home, or in owner provided kennels. I of course have extra dog beds in my room for anyone to crash on. I keep a store of Milk Bones and chew sticks on hand to reward good behavior and make sure dogs have something to keep them busy. Of course there is a large basket of dog toys for everyone to share.

I also like to text pictures of your baby to you while you are away, thus you know he's doing well and having a good time at my place.

I have been dog sitting since I was 13. Most girls that age started babysitting but I quickly decided that was not for me. I started out just dog sitting for a few of my parents friends, then a neighbor or two, soon it expanded through the neighborhood by word of mouth until when I finally got a car at 17 (paid for with dog sitting money) I was the go to dog sitter for much of my high school. I've moved several times since then and in each new place I built up a list of clients only to start again when I moved to the next place. Here in Troutdale I finally have a house that is perfectly suited to watching dogs and so I have gone full time with my dog sitting business.
You can trust me with your baby because I treat them like they are my babies. Without human children of my own all of my maternal instinct and love is poured into the canines that come to visit me. It's wonderful to finally have a job that I can look forward to each day.

Below are some reviews of Emma M from real dog owners who have used their services on!

Average Rating:
  • Our dogs were so excited to be going to Emma's house! We had a great trip and they had a great time hanging out with her and the rest of the doggie gang! Great!!

  • It was so wonderful finding Emma to care for our dogs during our trip. This was our first time leaving them for such a long time with someone other than family, so finding the right person was really important. We found the best person to care for them in Emma! We had no worries while we were away and we know our pups had a wonderful time at her place. We will definitely be calling on her again!!

  • Emma was great with our meet & greet. Our Golden, Sunny, was a bit manic as usual when we bring her somewhere new. But Emma took it in stride, Sunny calmed down, and we agreed to use her for our short vaca. When we picked up Sunny at Emma's yesterday, everything was great, except for Sunny's slightly chewed up of Emma's pups and Sunny became good friends and the pup liked her bed so much, she tried to eat it. Oh well, not a biggy! All was well, and Sunny was happy.

  • Our dog seemed happy, and well cared for. She seemed to have lots of fun, and enjoyed Emma's dogs and warm home.

  • My little guy needed a little extra care and Emma did a wonderful job keeping me posted and sending pictures.

  • Emma is amazing! She has a wonderful home and secure yard and I feel exceptionally comfortable leaving my boy in her care. She is very dog savvy and knows the importance of the visiting dog feeling like "part of the pack". Baxter loved being there and got along famously with her dogs and I will definitely be using her services again and referring her to everyone I know. Thanks again Emma! You rock!

  • My little guy had a wonderful time at Emma's and she kept in touch while we were away letting us know how he was doing. It made our vacation more relaxing knowing he was doing so well. Thank you Emma, we will return.

  • Emma was wonderful. She kept in touch with me and let me know how my little boy was doing. I felt very comfortable the whole time we were gone. I will definitely use Emma again knowing he is in a safe and well cared for environment.

  • Bodie had a great time with Emma and friends. He had good exercise and lots of play time.

  • Emma did a excellent job of caring for Zina. She was happy to stay with her. I will use her care again.

  • Emma was terrific!! We will be making another reservation for our babies soon!
