Hi. My name is Sharon McAllister, and I live in the east Bradenton area. Like everyone on DogVacay, I'm a total dog lover and a real sucker for their furry little faces. I have had a dog in my life for the past 35 years and currently have 4 of my own that range from 8 pounds to 60 pounds (ages 6 to 14). If it wasn't for my husband putting his foot down, I'd probably have one or two more. Like most dog owners, I feel like my dogs are part of the family (because, of course, they are!), and if they could talk--I mean, if we could understand them--they'd tell you that they're treated that way. Whenever we bring a new one into the fold, you'll even hear my husband telling them, "You don't know it yet, but you just won the dog lotto."
I have decided to dog sit outside my home only because my husband and I believe it would be easier on not only your dog, but on ours, as well, since we have so many. But please rest assured and know that just as I'll treat your dog as if he were my own, I'll treat your home the same way. I guarantee that your property and your privacy will be completely respected. I don't smoke, so you don't have to worry that I'll try to corrupt your baby. ;) I do work a full-time job during the week, but I'd be able to head home during my lunch to give your little one some attention, some time to see to his personal needs, as well as a midday snack. And when I'm not working, my time will be spent doing everything I can to make sure your dog dreads seeing you come home, but only because he's enjoyed his time with me so much! But seriously, I know it's never easy to go away and leave your pet, especially if you're looking at boarding him someplace where he'll be caged up the better part of the day. I hope you'll feel better about leaving him knowing he's happier being in his own environment surrounded by the things that he loves and tht comfort him, and that he's in excellent and loving hands.
So whether you have a dog who suffers with separation anxiety and just need someone to calm him with a little Rescue Remedy and some attention while you go out for a few hours, or whether you need someone to stay with him while you go on a much-needed vacation, I hope you'll give me the opportunity to meet you both so that I can put your mind at ease about leaving him with me. I promise that as soon as you do, you will know he couldn't be in better hands.
I also wanted to mention that my fee is actually a flat fee for up to three dogs, so should you decide to go with me, be sure and uncheck the box next to your other dogs' names so that the site does not charge you $30 for each of your dogs. If you have more than three dogs and they only need to be let out into a fenced yard and not walked on a leash, the fee would also still be a flat $30.
Thank you so much for reading my profile. If you have any questions or concerns at all, please don't hesitate to share them with me. I look forward to meeting you and your baby soon!
