I have loved dogs ever since I was 6 years old. My parents brought my brother and I an adorable, fluffy little ball of love named Lucy. She was an 8 week old Golden Retriever, and was my buddy for 8 years. Since that time, I have had other dogs. Layla (Golden retriever), Jupiter (sharpei mix), Monty (Cocker Spaniel mix). All of my dogs have lived long and happy lives.
Now, I have four adorable Yorkies, Stella, Sony, Tucker, and Graham. They are the lights of my life! They love other dogs and we take daily trips to the park for walks and also enjoy visiting the dog park. I also have a big, fluffy, orange cat named Finnegan.
I volunteered at a local rescue cleaning cages, feeding, and watering for a brief time. I also fostered and then adopted my 8 year old sweetie named Tucker. Over the past few years I have dog sat many times for friends and family.
As a guest in my house, your dog will be treated as a member of the family. I have a good sized fenced in yard where your dog will get supervised playtime and frequent potty breaks. I will also take your furbaby on daily walks. Some of my favorite places to walk are the Benton City park, Rend lake Bike and walking trail, and Arrowhead Lake in Johnston City. We also enjoy the Herrin Dog park (if your baby enjoys them). In the evenings, your baby can cuddle up on the couch with me and watch some tv!
I have a variety of playpens to sleep in at night as well as lots of cushy bedding. I recommend bringing some favorite items so your best friend will feel more at home. Please let me know if your furkid sleeps in a crate, or with you.
When we do our meet and greet, please fill me in on your baby's likes and dislikes. Also what you feed, how much, any medications..etc. I want things to be the closest to home as possible, and I am very happy to do their favorite things with them! It is of the utmost importance to me that your pup feel comfortable with me and my furkids!
Also, if you would like your dog to receive a bath before coming home, I would be happy to do that as well. I have a large variety of Natural Shampoos and other products. I will bathe, spray with detangler, brush out, blow dry (unless specified not to), clean ears, and spray with dog perfume. Please let me know if your dog has any skin sensitivities.
Additionally, I know how hard it can be to go on a trip and not be able to see your best buddy. With me, you won't have to, because I will send you daily picture updates to see how your pet is enjoying their vacation. Some examples of my pictures are in the gallery of this listing.
I do ask that your dog be up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, both for your baby's safety and for the safety of my resident pups. I can also show proof of my own baby's vaccinations upon request.
I also request they be up to date on their flea and tick medication.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my profile. I hope to see you and your dog very soon!
