About Meghan

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Meghan, and I've had dogs my whole life. I've been the primary caregiver for all dogs in my house for about 15 years now. I've had a few dogs with behavior issues that I was able to work through, so friends and neighbors have often asked me and my husband to help out with some basic training and behavior issues their own dogs have had.
My home is well-suited for most dogs except large ones that cannot handle a few steps. I live on the islands so my house is slightly elevated. If your senior dog is small enough to carry down the steps, I would be happy to do that for them so they don't have to struggle with stairs. There is a swimming pool for any water dogs, but fear not if your pooch cannot swim. My Frenchie can't either, so I am always outside when she is, watching her and the pool like a hawk to ensure no one falls in.
This is my only job, so I will be home for the day most of the time, though I do sometimes need to leave the house to run errands or just for the occasional social outing. I'll let your fur babies out first thing when I wake up, then after breakfast we'll either play outside in the yard (weather permitting) or find something fun to do inside (my dog loves to play chase with other dogs). We'll take a nice walk around the neighborhood in the late afternoon/evening before dinner time, and then relax after feeding until bedtime. Of course, they will get as many potty breaks as they want out in the yard.
***If your dog has severe separation anxiety, or if you think they might have it while being in a stranger's home, PLEASE inform me. It is ok, and there are things I can do to mitigate it. I do not mind taking care of your anxious dog. I do, however, mind not being informed and having thousands of dollars worth of damage done to my home that could have been prevented if I had known that a dog should be crated overnight, or if you could have asked your vet for medication to help out and have me administer it.***
Although I have no issues sitting any particular breeds, if your dog is very high-energy (like a typical Husky or a Pitbull), I may not be your best bet. I can only do one 20-30 min walk per day, plus all the backyard playtime they want. If you have an atypically lower-energy dog of a breed that is usually high-energy, I welcome you to bring them on over. My pup and I look forward to having a blast with your furbabies!

I've known Meghan for 8 years now and she has always been a very responsible pet owner. She has had 3 dogs (2 very large and one small) since I have known her and her dogs have always been the most well behaved dogs I have ever met. Their French bulldog has special needs and since they took her in, she has been in excellent health. Her and her husband own their home in a nice neighborhood with a fenced in back yard. Meghan loves animals and this line of work is perfect for her. She will be petsitting my blind, deaf 15 year old pug and I have absolutely no worries. I will feel so much more comfortable than taking my dog to an overnight kennel. I would strongly recommend her to anyone with dogs of any size.

I know Meghan would be an excellent candidate for DogVacay. She is loving, caring, and nurturing with her 'fur babies'
Last December, her beloved Hustler became ill. Being an older dog, the expectation was there, but Meghan made every
effort for Hustler to ensure that he was comfortable, and at ease, And at the same time, being able to give the attention needed to Pigbunny. The loss of Hustler was so very painful for Meghan and her husband, and of course Pigbunny was lost without her companion. Meghan made sure that Pigbunny was able to make the adjustment to single pup in the house.

Meghan is great with dogs! She has always had her own and taken great care of them. My dogs have stayed in her home and they were very welcome and happy. She has everything one would need to make sure any doggie guest would be comfortable and well taken care of.

Meghan is absolutely wonderful with dogs! She has a small Frenchie of her own and previously had two larger breed dogs. She has a lot of experience with different breeds and knows how to handle their different personalities. She is responsible and loving. She's also very skilled in obedience training. You won't find a better person to care for your fur baby.
