I have watched dogs for my friends and then watched a dog from a family I met at the dog park. The owners always comment on how excited their dogs are when they drive up to my house for another stay! Unfortunately they both moved away and I like to have a dog to have fun with occasionally. I don't have a dog myself, because I work full time outside of the home. For this reason, I prefer weekends stays. Sometimes I may be able to watch a dog during the week. I work close to home so I can walk the dog at my lunch time. Please note that for weekends I have "Unavailable" marked for Fridays. Since I work full-time I cannot have a pet guest until after 5pm.
Again, I prefer a Friday thru Sunday stay. When I have the dog at my house I like to be with the dog for the entire time. I may need to run a quick errand, but I feel that the dog should have FUN while away from it's family. Some say I spoil the dogs, but isn't that what a vacation is all about? :)
I do not have a fenced in back yard so I will ALWAYS have them on a leash. I live close to a park and I love to walk so hopefully your dog does too:) If your dog likes the dog park I have done that as well. If your pup gets a bit dirty having fun, I have no problem giving them a nice bath as long as it is ok with the owners.
The dogs that I have watched would just sleep in my bed (I don't like them to be lonely!). Again, it is the owners preference if they would like to bring a crate.
If you are at all interested in learning about me feel free to contact me and we can see if it will be a match with me and your furry family member ;)
Again, if you see I am marked as "Unavailable", but need a last minute short stay, feel free to ask if it would be at all possible. Sometimes if the timing is right my schedule can be flexible.
