About Courtney

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! Matt and Courtney here, the alphas of Otis' Pack! Matt has grown up with dogs (20 + years) while Courtney with cats (20+ years). We formed our own pack last year when we welcomed Otis into our lives. We are young professionals that live an active lifestyle. Our friendly lab Otis gets along very well with other dogs, has no problem welcoming them into his home and loves sharing a squeaky toy.

Typical Work Day (week day): The day begins at 6:30 am EST with a nice hour long walk followed by a hearty breakfast. After an additional hour play time, the dogs will lounge in the living room until lunch. During lunch there is a 30 to 45 minute walk. After the dogs will take an afternoon nap. For the rest of the evening it is all dog walks, dinner, training, and play time with a bed time of 10:30 pm EST.

Typical Weekend Day (weekend day): The day begins at 8:00 am EST with a nice walk or trip to the dog park! The rest of the day is various activities with the dogs being unsupervised for no more then 2 to 3 hours. We regularly bring the dogs with us on errands/activities whenever available. Dog friendly activities include trips to the river, the beach, outdoor shopping centers (Stony Point), swimming at the indoor dog pool, hikes, and other dog friendly activities in and around the RVA.

More than willing to jog with dog if they enjoy a good run.

Courtney was great! Very detail oriented in getting a list of Layla's routines, food needs, commands, etc. Layla came home happy and exhausted! Otis was very clearly a sweet dog also, so it was nice to know that Layla would be able to play with a friend while we were gone. Would use again!
This was our second time of using Courtney to watch our 8 months old puppy and she was awesome, as always. She went to the dog park, on a hike and daily walks with our dog, Wilma, who had the best time. Thank you so much, Courtney! We definitely plan to book with you in the future!
Zoe had a great time with Courtney and Otis over a quick overnight. I got update photos and videos and she came home very tired!
Courtney was amazing! Our puppy is only six months old, and can be a handful! Courtney has a detailed schedule for the dogs, gives them plenty of attention, takes them on many walks, and sent us 3 to 4 pictures a day! It was great to know that our dog was in such good hands while on vacation. Her dog, Otis, is also a super sweet dog that set a great example for our puppy, Wilma. I highly recommend Courtney to anyone! We've already booked our next stay with her. Thanks so much Courtney!
Courtney was great. She was very professional, easy to communicate with, and most importantly great with our dog Killian.
Courtney was Pawsome! I was anxious to leave my pup for so long but far meeting Courtney and her pup Otis, I immediately felt at ease. Courtney sent daily updates, pictures and videos of our puppy having a blast while in her care. We have already booked our next trip and our puppy is so excited to go back!
Cisco absolutely loved his time with Courtney, Matt, and Otis! I got lots of updates while I was on vacation and I could tell he was having an amazing time. I will be rebooking in the future and would recommend them to any other dog parents out there.
Iggy's recent Vacay with Courtney was fun indeed. He got to romp with Otis the chocolate lab, go on daily walks and visit the dog park. Courtney was highly communicative and sent both photos and videos of the two at play. She sends a highly detailed questionnaire beforehand, reviews it, and seemed to care about Iggy's personalized needs and behavior. We really appreciated all of the above!
Courtney was great! I left my pup with her for two nights and she sent me updates every evening with photos or videos of Ginny so I knew she was doing well. I will definitely consider using her again the next time I need a dog-sitter.
Courtney was great and very thorough. She sent us lots of updates and was kind to take care of every detail about Dempsey's routine. We look forward to using her again!
Courtney and Otis were great hosts for Loki and I felt good knowing he was spending the weekend in such lovely company. He was well taken care of and seems like he missed Otis (mostly, probably, sorry Courtney...) for a day or two afterwards. Courtney was very professional and treated Loki like her own. I'll be back!
Matt & Courtney are fantastic hosts! Our two pups came back utterly exhausted - I'm not sure they noticed we were gone. M&C take a professional approach to caring for dogs - they were thorough and asked good questions leading up to the visit and they sent us daily photo updates, which we really appreciated. Highly recommend!
Awesome! Courtney is the best.
Courtney and Otis' Pack are the best! My dog Lilly had a great stay and would definitely be up for going back anytime!
Courtney was a fantastic host! We felt very comfortable being away knowing that our dog was having such a great time with her. Courtney was extremely professional in all our interactions and made us feel like our dog was in great hands. Would definitely book with her again.
