I'm somewhat new to the dog sitting business, but I'm definitely not new to caring for dogs. I've grown up with dogs all my life. As a child, my chores included feeding and caring for our pets who I adored. When I was 15, my mom got a little shih tzu. Her and I quickly became attached and she later became solely mine. Mia is now almost eight years old and she is my baby. I couldn't imagine life without her. We also recently added another furry one to our family; his name is Rio.
I know how important it is to want to make sure your pet and family member is well taken care of. I've had to deal with it myself several times. We previously lived in England where my husband was stationed for three years and so we traveled a lot. My dog and I are very attached to each other and it's always hard to leave her so I understand the feeling. When I couldn't take my Mia with us, I was always making sure she was staying somewhere that I knew she'd be safe and happy. I also have some experience with dog sitting and boarding as we watched a few friends' dogs as well while we were overseas. You rely on each other when you're in a little military community far away from home. (Especially when there is lots of traveling to be done!)
I will always care for your fur-baby like I do my own. We own our house which is big and cozy for your dog to have a comfortable stay and make themselves right at home. We have a spacious enclosed backyard too. We even have a doggy door so your dog can come in and out as they please! However, I know not all dogs know how to use one so I will still make sure they get plenty of potty breaks. They will always have friends to play with which is my very playful and friendly Mia and little Rio. And plenty of toys that my pups are willing to share, but feel free to bring your own. I don't normally take my dogs on walks (they do a lot of their playing and exercise inside), but I am able to if you request it for yours. I'm pretty laid-back so not many rules. I just ask that your dog be potty-trained and well-behaved. I work at home so I'm always here to keep your dog company; my husband works at Kirtland AFB and works the night shift so he is gone during the evening, but when he is here, he will sometimes help me out. I aim to make your dog part of the family and have a fun-filled time!
