I've had dogs in my life since I was nine and love them. (Doesn't everybody say that?) In high school and college, I worked in a veterinarian's office as an assistant with hopes of attending vet school. (Did you know how hard it was to get in? I didn't.) While working as a microbiologist at Duke, I formed a dog sitting business and had several clients. Unfortunately, I moved to Alaska and couldn't bring them with me!
Additionally, we recently lost our beloved Goldendoodle, Bailey this past January to a rare disease, coonhound paralysis. We're not ready to get another dog to love and I feel this is a great way to get some doggie love on a temporary basis. Update: Just kidding, we got another dog!
We have young kids who love doggies (or goggies, as Teddy says) and if your dog is definitely proven not good with kids, we probably wouldn't be a good fit. I do however, have methods to separate kids and dogs if there is an issue. I also have an old cat who is good with dogs, but again, if your dog is not good with cats, it won't be a good fit.
We have a great setup with 7 acres of land. I will not take your dog off leash in our yard, but we can go out often. We recently installed a fence to make pet sitting and dog owning easier on all of us!
Let's give it a try! I think it could be great.
