We are a graduate student (Hélène) and a nurse (Allie) who love animals of all kinds, but especially dogs and cats! Until January 2013, both of us will be working full-time but have very different schedules. There may be days when both of us are out for a period of time and others when our special dog guests will have company all day! Please let us know what works best for your dog's routine.
We spent a lot of time training our dog to have good manners (sitting at curbs, waiting for dinner in his bed, sleeping in his crate at night and when we're out), and continue to work with him on his good behaviour, so we are happy to reinforce the good manners you have taught your dog! Sleeping on furniture is OK with us if it's OK with you - we could not resist couch cuddles with Kelenn... We train with love and positive rewards, and always feed healthy, natural treats (sometimes homemade ones!). :)
We frequently foster kittens for a local rescue and have also dog-sat for friends, so we are used to looking after many animals. We take our dog for an off-leash run once a day, on top of two nice neighbourhood walks in the morning and the evening. Ultimately we would love to have a second dog, but we want to wait a little longer... so in the meanwhile we would love to look after your dog!
