About Rusty

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been playing with and taking care of animals since I was young. I started with my neighbors cats, but now I have over 10 years of experience with dogs and many other animals. I am an English teacher and work primarily from home. Since I teach four days of the week, your dog is never unsupervised for more than 3 or 4 hours a day.

Your dog will get lots of play time, snuggle time, and has the option of having a buddy (my little Maltese can stay home with us or go to daycare with her mom). I will take your furry child for several walks each day. On a cool day I can take your dog on a two mile walk by the beach if they have the stamina. If your dog has special needs, please let me know and we can discuss best practices in their personalized care.

Our house has a large backyard. The living room has two dog beds, a large couch, and plenty of toys. My partner works for an organic pet food store so we are very aware of pet nutrition and allergies. If you have any questions about switching dog foods, treating allergies, or adding supplements, we can give informed recommendations.

We offer baths and nail trimming with organic, allergen free shampoo that is good for their skin.

I can watch any size dog in their own home. In my home, I only accept one small dog at a time or two from the same family. No dogs over 40 pounds, please.

If my calendar shows "unavailable" for dates you want, please let me know and we can discuss availability.
