About Stephanie

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Stephanie and my roommates are Moose the great dane and Tommy the cat. I have a small house in Cabbagetown with a fully fenced in yard. Moose gets along well with all dogs despite his 150 lb stature. Tommy just likes to creep around and eye all our new guests. He's a good kitty who is fine with dogs as long as they don't try to eat him.

About me: I grew up with 2 dogs, Mickey and Buster, and 2 cats, Kate and Allie, along with loads of turtles, lizards, hamsters, frogs, etc. I worked as a kennel assistant at a vet all through high school ('96-'00). In college I went to work for a local pet sitting business and worked there until I graduated in '06. I started my "real" job right out of college, but to make extra money I started filling in as a backup pet sitter for a local company. That was in 2007 and I've been filling in ever since. I also have some private clients that I've been watching for years. I will gladly provide references...just let me know. I have fostered numerous dogs at my house for Lifeline and different great dane rescues in the SE. I have also kept dogs for friends.

I adopted Moose 3 years ago and before that I had Bella, whom I adopted after foster failing. She passed away from old age in 2014. Tommy was an adopted kitty back in 2008.

For dogs staying with me...PLEASE READ:
-I require all dogs to be up-to-date on their vaccines and on flea medication.
-Your pup needs to be dog friendly and OK with cats. Interested pups are fine, dogs that eat cats for breakfast are not :)
-I work a regular 8-5 schedule M-F, but am around all the time outside of that. I can also go home for a 30 minute walk at lunch.
-If your dog is well behaved in the house they will be allowed to wander. If they have a tendency to get in trouble I have a great dane sized crate that they can stay in during the weekdays.
-I never allow pets outside unattended, even though both front and backyards are fenced.
-We will go on at least one long (2 mile plus) walk a day and I will be glad to bring your dog to local dog parks if your pup is into that kind of thing. I have lots of love to give and lots of time to cuddle so your pup will be in good hands.

I prefer Meet & Greets prior to accepting booking reservations for new guests. I just want to make sure Moose and Tommy will be comfortable in their own home and that you get a chance to see where your dog will be spending his time.

Thanks!

Molly had a wonderful time with Stephanie and Moose! Stephanie has watched her a few times and always takes great care of her - walks, dog park, play time and lots of photo updates. Thanks, Stephanie!
Stephanie was great! Very friendly and flexible with timing. She kept me up to date with photos and texts about Ollie's stay. He clearly had a great time going on walks and playing with her dog Moose as he zonked out as soon as we got home.
After first meeting Stephanie I knew that she was the perfect choice for my Senior Labrador. Stephanie's home has super good energy and we are looking forward to our next stay with her and her dog Moose.
