Hi, I'm Paula!
I've have 2 dogs for a combined total of 27 years. I've babysat for friend's dogs as well as for a Dog Care business when there were more dogs than she could accommodate. Additionally, I fostered dogs for a group in Miami that rescued dogs from a kill shelter. Typically these dogs were in my care for about 3-4 weeks. Many were Chihuahuas that were deemed vicious. It only took a day or 2 for them to come around. My dog, Rocky is a well balanced maltese and he loves other dogs. He does an amazing job getting them to feel relaxed and comfortable. I also learned from watching a lot of Cesar Milan that walking the dogs together right away made an impact on how quickly they would bond.
Keeping your dog safe is my number one priority. I live in a single level apartment with 2 sets of doors, one set locked, before reaching outside. The size of my apartment(925 ft) also makes it easy for me to keep a close eye on your baby.
I work from home and typically don't leave for more than an hour or so. There's quite a bit of yard outside and if your dog is up to it, we usually go for walks several times a day.
I look forward to hearing from you!
PS -I prefer the dog be bathed before they arrive as sleeping in my bed is an option.
