Quiet secluded city house on over four acres is the perfect place for your dog's stay. Our family friendly home is ready to accommodate all of your dog's needs, and make your dog feel like part of the family. No other pets are in our home at this time, so your dog will receive undivided attention from our family. We have watched numerous dogs over the years, and would really enjoy having your dog be part of our family for a while. Walks will be given daily, and your dog will enjoy roaming in our large yard surrounded by trees. We look forward to having your dog stay with us!
About this sitter:
I am a highly motivated energetic individual that loves spending time making the world a better place. I'm active, and enjoy spending lots of time with dogs, and people. Some of my favorite hobbies include, playing music on the harp and piano, writing, cooking, and spending time with friends. I hope I may be able to bring some encouragement to you and your dog during its stay with me.
Why I love dog sitting:
We had a faithful family dog for about 13 years that died a little over 7 years ago. She was a border collie mix who was a special part of our family, and gave us all a lot of love and attention. She traveled with us, and gave us all a lot of joy, and happiness. We all miss her greatly, and love any time we can get with our friend's dogs. I wanted to get another dog for our family, but it wasn't possible because we travel too much. But with DogVacay, I'm able to enjoy having dogs around all the time, and still travel when I ned to. It's the perfect combination for me:)I love being able to help out pet owners when they are away, by creating a comfortable environment for their dogs to relax, and enjoy their time. It's fun to feel like I am making a difference for others.
Meet my pets:
We have no pets at this time, so your dog will receive undivided attention:)
About my yard:
We have over 4 acres of unfenced property in the middle of the city. We are surrounded by trees, and have plenty of room for your dog to roam on the leash.
My experience administering medication:
Yes! We used to give our dog medication, and I'm familiar with injection, and pill forms of medication.
Please come to the meet and greet prepared to tell me answers to these questions. Also, If you could update your care instructions with any specific details (on DogVacay for your dog) that would be wonderful.
Here's a list of questions I usually ask at our meet and greets:)
What types of care will be needed for your dog? How much feed will be needed? What you will provide....(food, dog house, leash, etc)? What your Dog's temperament is like, and what it likes from you? Where your dog sleeps? What your dog prefers to do during the day? Can it ride in the car? Is it ok off leash? Is it good with other dogs?
I'll take your dog on a nice walk around our neighborhood. My walk is usually 30-60 minutes every day around our quiet peaceful neighborhood. It's approximately 1-3 miles, but can be shortened or lengthened as needed for your dog:)The entire route is side-walked, and your dog would be kept on the leash at all times.
Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
I usually let the dogs sleep in my bedroom on their own dog bed, but sometimes they sleep in our living room as well, or however your dog is used to sleeping should be great. But I don't allow dogs to sleep with me:) Sorry!
Time I'll spend with your dog:
We live and work at home 24/7 so someone will always be here with your dog. I usually let the dogs out every hour or so, and make sure to spend plenty of time playing, and walking your dog as well:)
Rates: My rate is $40 a night or a day. The price is calculated based on 24 hours, not a night. So when you book a stay for one night and 2 days, you will be charged for 2 days. I hope that makes sense:)
