I believe a tired dog is a good dog. I make sure dogs in my care get lots of walks and playtime. Doggie play dates with other clients are scheduled if possible. Your dog becomes part of my family for the length of their stay. Often dogs leave here and crash for several days from the activity here.
A few things...please read.
-I do not take dogs who mark, period. If you are wondering if this is your dog....then it probably is.
-If you have an electric fence, you must notify your petsitter. Dogs who are used to being able to go out the front door without a leash on will think they can do that anywhere!
- I am a yoga teacher and teach classes in my home. Therefore if you think people coming in and out of the home will be an issue for your pet (i.e. incessant barking, fearful of strangers, social anxiety) please choose another pet sitter for your needs.
- Lastly if your pet is used to constantly being with you (if you work from home or you are retired) - your pet MAY need a home that can offer that to him/her. I spend quality time with them, but not quantity. I am home teaching yoga, taking my daughter back and forth places, and walking dogs. I am in and out all day as a dog walker, yoga teacher, fitness enthusiast, mom, wife, and home owner. This can be unsettling for some dogs whose owners are home all the time.
