We are an active family with 3 kids, ages 11, 8 and 4. We don't have a pet, but someday we would like to get one. We would love to dog-sit a gentle dog that is known to be good with small children. We will take the dog on many walks (at least 3 - 4 times a day) and give him or her lots of love. The kids love to play ball with a dog and take he or she to the park. We live close to the Charles River and there is a great park there. Mom and Dad are runners and can go running with a dog, too.
We have experience dog-sitting for our friends and family. The kids are so excited to have a dog in the house, that the dog is like a celebrity.
We prefer to meet the dog in advance to make sure that we are not allergic. As we may be allergic to some breeds.
We live in a single family, 2,000+ square foot house, so there is plenty of room for the dog to roam. We have a small fenced in yard, (20 x 30) but we go out for walks or to the park throughout the day.
Someone is home most of the time during the day. Although, there may be a few hours, when we cannot be home, so the dog must be OK being alone for a short time, up to 3-4 hours, during the week.
We will love your dog and treat he or she like a family member.
We only host one dog at a time, unless you have two dogs.
