I'm a dog lover that dedicates my life to these lovely furry friends. I'm a certified groomer as well as part time veterinary technician. My passion to dogs has never come to an end. I meet many dogs at my job everyday, but its never enough for me. Watching friend's dog has became my hobby. With my experience in veterinary world that I'm professionally trained to provide a safest place to all dogs that stays with me.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.
I have been a dog lover my entire life time. I have always had dogs in my family. As I grew up, we had two German shepherd and one American Eskimo. 8 years ago I got my cockapoo as vday present. It was love at the first sight. He's always been by my side ever since. I take him wherever I go. We have a such strong bond that we put a smile on people whoever sees how we understand each other with only an exchange of glance.
My second addition has joined us a year and half ago that she won everyone's heart. She is just as smart and sweet as her brother.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?
It would be ideal if your dog is house trained. Any breed is welcomed.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?
Yes, in fact we have two cars and I also work at veterinary clinic.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?
Basically I spend all my time playing with my dogs everyday. They are the center of my universe. When the weather is permitted, we spend our day at the park so will your dog. Or we play tug-of-war at home when the sky has a silver lining.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.
We do not have a backyard. We prefer to walk them rather than just let them run free in a backyard. We can monitor their schedule and habbits better.

Where will my dog sleep?
They get to choose wherever they want. My full size bed is fully occupied at night, but if your poochie can sneak in and get a spot on the bed, we dont mind sharing. I also have two very comfortable sofas with plenty of pillows. The best spot for taking a nap or long rest at night.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.
Mostly quiet streets in my neighbor hood. If your poochie stays with us on weekends, when weather is permitted we will do park trips.

Our furry baby has been going to Ivy and Charlie's for day care. They are very responsive and accommodating. TT and FaFa are great play dates as well. On top of that, we got frequent updates which definitely put our minds at ease. Two thumbs up!
Ivy and Charlie were wonderful hosts. They are responsible, accommodating, and trustworthy. Initially I was nervous because this was my first time leaving my dogs with a sitter and they need special care but Ivy and Charlie were great at following instructions. The photo updates were also reassuring. I am going to be pet sitting with Ivy and Charlie again and want to thank them for having a flexible schedule and being a life saver by taking care of my dogs!
Ivy is the BEST. Milan loves her and misses her TONS! He was always safe, sound and happy around her.
