Hello Kate here!
I have one mini Goldendoodle "Opie" (Male) 2yr 25 Lbs (not always home depending on what type of dogs I am sitting at moment)
Also a mini Aussiedoodle "Lavender" (Female) 1yr 30 Lbs
They are very friendly, house trained .. We have a huge gated yard and live behind South Anchorage High school! Wooded floors. We love hikes or even just walks around the neighborhood!
I offer solo walks or even walks with my dogs its completely up to you! Over night stays will be with my dogs but if that is an issue my dogs can stay at my moms house so just keep that in mind if your dog needs just a little more attention! If your pet is left alone at the house he or she will be gated off in the kitchen or roaming the house but really that just depends how you leave your pet in its home environment I will try and make the stay as normal as possible! I can also kennel your pet or leave in bathroom we will discus what is most "like home" for your pet. My backyard is completely gated off so even leaving in back yard is alright (depending on season) My dogs are both kennel trained or can be gated off or roam the house so I have everything to accommodated your pet. I prefer short hair dogs (as mine do not shed) but depending on your needs we can figure it out! This winter I only work part time so I am very flexible! All ages are fine but potty trained is must unless a puppy I am great with training! My dogs ring a bell to let us know they need to go outside so maybe I can get your dog to follow! I have past experience dealing with dogs that have anxiety as ones needing medication. My dogs are dairy, grain , wheat free the healthier the better! We love treats in our house but if your dog has restrictions that's not a problem! Sometimes we go to the Dog Swim at " k9 aquatics" so if you are interested in planning that ..that's always an option! We are always having fun!
My house has a security system that is armed at all times when I leave with cameras throughout the house I normally do a trial run for about an hour or two to see how relaxed they are when I leave to make sure their stay is without anxiety. If I am working on a day of the dogs stay I always come home for at least an hour for lunch for play time if not longer. If an emergency appears on the cameras I can leave work at a moments notice.. "3 min drive away". We are all about safety and fun!
No aggressive dogs as mine are on the smaller side as well as larger dogs example of large: Great Dane, German Shepard, Pit Bull, Weimaraner.
