We are a family of 5 with two dogs - Roxy and Sadie. Roxy is a 2 year old 75 pound Newfoundland / Lab mix with the biggest heart ever. She begs me for doggie friends to play with daily! She is sweet and submissive and just wants doggie friends. She plays well with all breeds and sizes and is super friendly to dogs and children alike. Sadie is a 10 pound Havanese and she is the queen of our house. She sits on her perch on the couch most of the day watching what Roxy is up to. We have a cozy, dog friendly house with a nice sized fenced in backyard for the dogs to play. Our three kids love dogs and are so willingly to help me petsit! I am a stay at home mom so we will give your sweet dog lots and lots of love and attention.
More about me:
I am a mom of three kids and two adorable dogs....my passion is making everyone happy. Roxy and Sadie are my "doggie" children and our three kids love helping me take care of them. I have been raised around animals and grew up in Potomac on a farm like setting- we always had at least 4 dogs at the same time. We had lots of puppies and kittens too and horses. We now live in Arlington, VA.
How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.
I have grown up with dogs since I was born, we have always had a pet dog in our house. I am a true dog lover with a passion for all dogs.
My only requirement is a friendly dog who loves other dogs and children alike.
We have two cars and can certainly take a dog to the vet in the event of an emergency.
I can administer medicine to your pet with your careful instructions. We give roxy four daily vitamins easily.
I am a stay at home mom, we spend many quality hours with our dogs everyday. The dogs sleep in our room or in our kids room at night if they like to be near people. We also have a kennel that can fit up to a 70 pound dog in it if needed and a cozy dog bed in the living room.
We have a decent size backyard, half a paved deck and half a grassy area. This is fenced in area with fences tall enough for our 85 pound dog Roxy. Roxy loves to chill out on our lounge chairs in the sun during the day.
Your dog will sleep either in the living room, our bedroom on the floor on a blanket, in our kids room on the floor on a carpet or we also have a kennel that will fit up to a 70 pound dog that we can set up in our living room or bedroom. Roxy was kennel trained but now sleeps in our room or the kids room. Her favorite place to sleep is in the kids bed with them. Our little dog Sadie sleep in bed with my husband and I.
We go on walks daily through our beautiful neighborhood in Arlington. Roxy and I like to run/walk to get the energy out. We walk twice a day for at least a half a mile each time. Our neighborhood has tons of hills so it is great exercise for the dogs.
