Hi, I'm Liz and I have been in DC for over one year now. I love meeting new dog friends in the city, and every time I pet a dog it brightens my day! I truly love pup company and would love to meet yours! I am available all times and days of the week for dog sitting, and my going rate is $40 overnight dog sitting.

I have lots of experience with dogs so I'm sure your dog(s) and I would get along just fine! I am always happy to do a meet-and-greet at your convenience first to make sure we are compatible. My experience includes:
- walking
- overnight sits
- administering oral and topical medication
- caring for epileptic dogs
- caring for dogs recovering from surgeries and in cones/needing bandage care
- basic training
- caring for puppies
- caring for aggressive dogs

I don't judge! I love dogs of all shapes and sizes, and have cared for the following breeds so far: - shepherds
- labs
- golden retrievers
- boxers
- beagles
- poodles
- weimaraners
- Belgian malinois
- huskies
- akitas
- dalmations
- collies
- Frenchies
- Boston Terriers
- pit bulls
- vizslas
- whippets
- a dingo (yes, really!)
- foxhounds
- ...and all sorts of mutts

I have experience using:
- e-collars
- prong collars
- martingale collars
- every kind of harness and leash including double-dog/coupler/tandem leashes
- muzzles and gentle leaders

If you have other pets in addition to dogs, like birds or cats, I am happy to care for them too at no additional cost.

Unfortunately, I do not offer overnight dog boarding in my own home. I can only dog sit and do overnights in the dog owner's home.

Please write or call with any questions you might have! I look forward to meeting you and your pup.

Liz loves my dog and looks forward to staying with him. She is always responsible, friendly, and so clean!
Liz did a fantastic job for us. She sent photos of the dogs though out the day and kept in contact as needed. Plus she is just a sweet girl you loved our dogs for us while we were out. Hight recommend her and we will have her watch the pups again.
Liz was fabulous with our 4-year-old Belgian Malinois. In addition to her usual sending pictures and updates daily by text, Liz was willing and enthusiastic about learning and practicing commands specific to our dog. Our pup can be a handful, and Liz was so positive about the visit.
