I'm a full time professional who loves dogs. I have a rather unusual schedule so pets would be alone in the early morning hours but would have me home with them from noon through the evening. While the extra income earned is always welcome I am mostly looking for an occasional companion for my Great Dane, Gunner. Gunner does best with female dogs since it has been my experience that smaller male dogs sometimes become aggressive with him due to his large size (he's 160 pounds).
While your dog is with me, he/she will be allowed to have free reign of my home as well as doggie door access to a large, fully fenced back yard. Dogs are free to sleep wherever they like- on the couch, floor, my bed- I treat them like they're my own. I also live within half a mile from a well maintained dog park and make trips there almost daily. While you're away I will keep you updated on your pet's activities in whatever way you prefer including email, text, or FaceTime (yes I know it might seem weird but I do this when I'm away from Gunner so I'd offer you the same).
I do require a meet-and-greet prior to dog sitting. The best case scenario is our dogs would meet in a neutral place and then see if they get along in my home. You would need to be present for this interaction. You must provide proper vaccinations so we can take trips to the dog park (unless you advise against that idea) and if your dog is not altered I may not accept them. I require 100% honesty from you and I will be 100% honest and transparent as well. Please remember, my dog is like my child and I need to protect him at all cost. I will always treat your animal with the same respect and loving care.
