About Kirsten

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm Kirsten :) I am a student at NC State, and I am fairly new to Raleigh. My dog Cobi and I spend most of the day hanging around the house, and we would both benefit from having another pup around every now and then! For any guest puppies, we can go explore the exciting obstacle doggie park down the way and have a fun walk around the block! Cobi has a giant basket full of toys and treats that he is more than happy to share.

I live in an apartment with an off leash dog park a block away. There is also a really nice walking trail that is great for walking dogs. My space has been puppy proofed, and anything that needs to be kept out of reach is -- I know how curious little minds can get. Just let me know if your pup is notorious for getting into anything specific like chords, toilet paper, or other things of the sort that may still be left about. The house is fully open to explore! There are no hiding places to be concerned about, so I can keep a very good eye on any guest. For any pets that get a little stressed away from home, I have a little doggie den that can provide a nice and quiet place to calm down. The bed inside is a cool memory foam topper, and its kept dark with a down blanket over top. Guests are welcome to sleep wherever they please, and just let me know if they do best on their own bed!

I am also ok if your doggie has accidents -- I understand that they sometimes happen in an unfamiliar home. My dog suffers from separation anxiety himself, but I unfortunately cannot accommodate a pup that cries all night for his or her parents. I would love to comfort them, but my neighbors would not be as kind. That said, I know my puppy does a lot better with anxiety after a nice walk or when another friend is around, so I am willing to do what I can to find any solution to accommodate. :)

My dog Cobi has been an only dog all his life, though he has never met a dog that he couldn't make friends with! He loves to play but knows the right time to give a dog a little space. As he will be here, it is really important that any possible doggie guest does not show aggression towards male dogs.

I am in school during the mornings Mon-Fri (8am-12pm), but the rest of the day is all open for service! I request to be contacted a couple days in advance -- though my schedule stays predominantly open, sometimes things are planned, and I would still love to work something out! When I am scheduled, I am fully committed to being here at all times. In case of an emergency that would require me to be apart from a pet for any time, I would make sure the pet's parents would be fully aware of why and for how long!
