We are a fun, dog-loving couple who will give your pup love and keep them safe while you are out of town.
We have 2 dogs of our own - a 6 year old Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix who we have raised from a 6 week old puppy, and a 5 year old Pitbull that we rescued from the MDSPCA 4 years ago. They are both very well trained, and love other dogs. If your dog is a cuddler, our pittie girl will snuggle with them all day. If they are full of energy, our rottie boy will run laps around the big fenced in yard all day.
We have been dog sitting for about 10 years and been on DogVacay for about 3 years. We have had to leave our dogs with other people while we have been out of town, and understand the stress of having you put your babies in someone else's care. Our goal is to minimize that as much as possible. We are a cat and kid-free home, so as long as your dog gets along with other dogs, we should be just fine.
Our dogs are crated at night and when we're not home, so there won't be any unsupervised interaction. I prefer to have dogs that are crate-trained (just to minimize any risk of issues while we're at work) but if they are older and not destructive, I'm ok with that. We do have an extra crate, so you don't have to bring yours unless you prefer to do so. Our house is very dog friendly - no stairs, plenty of comfy places to sleep, and not much they can get into. They will get lots of play time outside, and lots of snuggle time inside.
I am also available to dog sit in your house, but I would not be spending the night. I can come by and feed and let dogs out a few times a day, and give them some play time and cuddle time. I will also collect mail and water plants, if necessary.
