They call me "The Dog Mama". I'm an avid animal advocate and professional pet sitter with 8+ years of rewarding experience. I n addition to being a pet sitter, I am a dog trainer and behaviorist.
PLEASE READ THIS E NTIRE BIO BEFORE MESSAGING ME. IT WILL ANSWER MANY OF YOUR QUESTIONS AND GIVE YOU VALUABLE INSIGHT INTO MY HOLISTIC APPROACH TO PET CARE.
All of the animals I look after are special to me and I take care of them as if they were my own. I've hosted many hap py dogs o ver the years and my goal is always to make th em feel comfortable and completely at home in my home. Because of the nature of my job, I'm home through out the day. So all day your dog will be getting plenty of love, personalized attention and all the walks or exercise that they need. I als o take pride in providing the calm home environment that most of us feel pets prefer over large boarding facilities.
I also specialize in long-term pet care. I like to give dogs a chance to get to know me and me them (shh.. they don't know I'm a dog sitter. They just think we're pals and that's how I'd like to keep it.. lol). If you like taking your dog to a different sitter every time you go out of town, I'm probably not the dog sitter for you. Sometimes this can be useful for training purposes.. you may be wanting to socialize them to as many people as possible or maximize their exposure to as many different environments as possible. And while my home is very welcoming(**), I don't want it to be a revolving door(***) and I hope you can understand that. I look at pet care like a parent looks at child care(*). If you feel the same way and are looking for the security of a carefully selected community, hand picked by you, to entrust your (fur) child to, then I'm the dog nanny for you : )
I've met many K9 friends over the years and consider many of them to be family. As you can see from my revisit rate, the dogs that stay with me consider this their second home and many pet parents count on my availability and will only trust me with their dogs. I'm grateful for that trust and proud of the fact that there are usually happy wagging tails around my home. For that reason, I do not offer 'private' dog sitting. Other members of my K9 family may come and go during your dog's stay. If your dog is not a fellow dog lover (All Sizes) my h ome will probably not be the best fit for them.(****) With that being said..
****Because Safety is always the first priority, I can not board non-social d ogs.
