About Dessa

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a single story home with a fully fenced-in back yard with no pool, in a suburban neighborhood. I work from home, so I'm home most of the day. For me, and any dogs I am watching, a normal day consists of waking up to breakfast followed by a 15min. walk or play outside. While I'm working, dogs have free roam of the house (bathroom doors stay shut) and backyard with plenty of toys available. After I eat lunch, I will play with dogs 5 to 10mins. then I'm back to working. Around 5pm, dogs go on their night walk. Second feeding is given when my husband & I eat dinner. After dinner dogs go outside in the backyard for 10mins to play & use the bathroom. I will give 1 more bathroom break right before bedtime. (Throughout the day, I will take dogs outside & verbally prompt them to use the bathroom every 3 to 4 hours. After using the bathroom, I give treats as a positive reinforcement. In the occasion I am away I never am gone more than 4hrs.

When I'm away from home or not directly supervising a dog, there will be no food available or general hazzards. My dog was a very curious puppy, so I have thoroughly doggie proofed my home & backyard. I will never leave your pet outside unattended.

My schedule is very flexible & I am willing to accommodate any schedule your dog may be used to. My goal is to provide a safe & comfortable environment for your dog with care that would remind them of being at home, all while giving you peace of mind.

What luck to have found Dessa for my dog walking needs! My husband had recently passed away and he was the mid-day walker for our dogs in an apartment.
Dessa has been as flexible as I have needed her to be, my dogs respond very well with her, and she has taken a huge weight off my shoulders as I don't have to worry about Sweet Pea and Shadow while I am at work.
I appreciate how she walks them longer than I usually do, and that I get a daily report on what they did or did not do. And getting a photo of them on my phone gives me a lift in my day.

Max stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and was well taken care of, enjoyed getting the pictures of him. would definitely use again. thanks dessa
Dessa kept my Westie Skipper for 2 nights. She took good care of him and he had a great time!
Dessa took care of my Penny Lane for three nights, while I went out of town, and I didn't worry at all.. after we met at the meet and greet, I got a good feeling about her, which allowed me to enjoy myself on my weekend with family. She was very thoughtful, and sent me a couple of updates daily, along with pictures of my baby girl, which really made me feel comfortable being away. Dessa was very professional, and I will definitely use her dog sitting services again!!
