About Stephanie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a proud mother of an 8 m/o boxer pup who loooooves to have playdates with other doggies. Since I have 10 years of experience with dogs of different breeds and absolutely love being a fur baby caretaker, my fiancé and decided to open our home to other fur parents who are looking to have someone trustworthy to watch their lovely pup! I offer a pick-up and drop-off service also!

When I sit your fur baby, I treat them with the same unconditional love and care that I do with my own. I like to make sure that the dogs engage in enough play by allowing full access to play time with my baby boxer or by trips to the dog park (so long as their parents allow it!). I know how nice it is to know that your baby got in their exercise for the day and will sleep like a newborn pup in the evening!

I am a small business owner of a loose leaf herbal tea company that I run online and am also a psychology graduate student. I have my Bachelor's degree in psychology with an emphasis in neuroscience and behavior. I have taken courses through my college education, such as learning and play theory and behavior modification, that I have since learned how to apply when interacting with and training my boxer pup. With education on animal behavior combined with an inherent need to nuture animals, I can confidently say that your precious baby will be cared for with understanding, comfort, and love.

If you'd like, I can work on some behavioral issues with your doggie by using some of my techniques. Just please be sure to let me know if there are some issues of concern that I should look out for and we can discuss some methods that I would use while they are in my care. From there, you can decide which methods you are comfortable with me using to address these concerns. After all, it's your baby and I want to follow your lead on how to care for them.

To wrap it up, I would love to sit your doggie! I have a flexible schedule and will try my best to accommodate your needs. Shoot me a message and we will chat! Oh, and please feel free to message me for last minute bookings. I may be able to work it out with you depending on my schedule.

XOXO
-Stephanie

Strphanie was awesome! I would absolute use her as a sitter again and was by far one of the best sitters I have used. I could tell that Kenji really enjoyed his stay with her and her pup. Her communication was amazing and she was very flexible. Once I got home with Kenji I even noticed that his nails were clipped and had been groomed. Stephanie really went above and beyond. Highly recommend.
