About Sarah

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Please note: I am booked for the holidays: If you are an existing client & I show booked or unavailable, please reach out to me to see if I can accommodate.
I will not be able to accommodate drop offs/pick ups on Dec 17th, Xmas Eve/Day and/or NYE/Day.

Don't want your dogs to be home alone while you are on vacation? You are in luck - I work from home full time. My home is set up to host dogs & I have a large backyard. I have been fostering rescue dogs and pet sitting for over 9 years. Your dog will enjoy their vacation here while you are enjoying yours! Doggie vacationers will enjoy the large fenced backyard and relaxing here with treats, attention & playtime. I have one resident dog, a 7 yr old neutered and vaccinated border collie & Australian Shepard mix named Quinn.

About the sitter:
I am an experienced pet and home sitter in the Charlotte area. I currently work from home full time. I have extensive experience with dogs and have been volunteering at the local animal shelter for 9 years and also foster for them. I can provide references upon request. Be assured that your pets will enjoy their stay-cation with me while you are enjoying your vacation!

Why I love dog sitting:
I grew up with a dog and cat and have had dogs almost my entire life. My current dog, Quinn, is a rescue I adopted 7 years ago.

About my yard:
I have a large, securely fenced backyard.

Boarding Rate: Boarding in my home is for a 24-hour period (including overnight).
Sitting Rate: Sitting in your home is for a 24-hour period (including overnight). This is my base rate for overnight sitting and can increase based on location, amount of animals, their needs and other factors.
Please plan your schedule accordingly. This also includes walks, feeding, and plenty of cuddles!

Notes: I do require that all dogs are up-to-date on all of their shots (including Bordetella). Additionally, they must have a negative fecal test. Dogs MUST be completely housebroken and I am not currently accepting dogs under 9 months of age. Also, dog boarding spots are filled on a first come first serve basis. Existing clients take 1st priority. My spots fill based on confirmed bookings. When sending me a booking request, please specify your requested drop off & pick up times. Please message me if you have any questions. Thank you!

Sarah was great! My dog, Nikko, is shy but Sarah knew exactly how to approach and comfort her. When Nikko stayed with Sarah I received text updates and pictures throughout the day. Sarah is easy to communicate with and I will definitely book another stay!

Sarah is the best! Our dogs love her and we trust her completely with them! She walks them every week while we are at work and she kept one of them over Thanksgiving. Our pup had a fabulous time! We always get lots of great pictures from her which we love to see when we are away from our babies. Sarah rocks!

Theo and Whiskey had a blast with Sarah and Quinn! They were worn out from playing in the backyard and seemed like they got plenty of love while we were away. I highly recommend reaching out to Sarah so that you can enjoy your getaway knowing your pups are well cared for!

Perfect 2nd visit with Sarah and Quinn! Even with torrential downpours and heavy winds, Blu was kept happy and entertained with plenty of exercise and play. Quinn is wonderfully patient with Blu's overdrive energy! Nice to return to a happy dog!
We couldn't have asked for a better pet sitting experience - Sarah was great! Our pup loved staying at her house and enjoyed playing with her dog. She was so easy to work with, very relaxed and yet diligent about getting all the proper information she needed to provide the appropriate care. Above and beyond the basics, Sarah was very responsive and even texted regularly with updates and pictures (we were at our wedding weekend and she even sent pictures of our pup with a tie on celebrating from afar ... doesn't get better than that!). We would absolutely recommend her!

Sarah did a great job watching Winston! Her dog is so sweet and patient and is a great host too. Sarah sent a lot of great photo updates and was incredibly responsive. I will definatley book with her again!
This was my second time using Sarah and she is great! My dog was so excited to see Sarah and her dog Quinn so you know he has a great time!
Sarah was a great host. She was really easy to work with and didn't mind a short notice booking. My dog came home happy and tired which is just how I like him!
I had to leave my dog Macie with Sarah for 4 days while I was away camping with no cell phone I wasn't concerned a bit all weekend. When I got back my dog was happy and healthy and everything went great. I'd definitely hire her again.
Sarah was awesome! She is so dog friendly and was flexible with drop off & pick up. Fenway had tons of fun and was very well-taken care of! It gave me piece of mind to know I didn't have to worry about him while we were on vacation! I knew he was being well-loved and cared for. Thanks, Sarah! Fenway will be back!

Sarah was amazing! She sent me photos and updates while I was away. Duke had a blast playing her dog Quinn!
Sarah took great care of our dogs, and sent us lots of updates of how they were doing throughout our time away from home. She was very attentive to one of our pups that had an injured paw, and he was doing well when we got back. We are grateful to Sarah for the TLC she gave our dogs while we were away.

Sarah was so great walking our dogs while we worked some long days! Our pups loved her! Highly recommend her services! Thanks, Sarah!
Hatteras had a blast with Sarah! From the looks of it, he spent his days playing in her back yard with some other pups. When I picked him up he couldn't have been in a better mood!

On top of the experience itself, Sarah accepted my request to watch Hatteras on one days notice after my other host cancelled. The entire experience was A+++ and I would recommend Sarah to anyone.

Sarah was a great sitter for our dog, Abel! He had been to a boarding place before and was uncomfortable and had separation anxiety so we decided to go with a private sitter this time. Abel and Quinn hit it off immediately! Sarah sent us photos throughout the stay to show us that Abel was having good time and was comfortable. Sarah was sweet and easy to work with. We will definitely use her again in the future!

Our little dog is very attached to us and has seperation issues but she did very well at Sarah's home. Our dog got along well with Quinn, Sarah's dog and we received lots of pictures and updates. We will happily use Sarah again!
Searching for a trustworthy person to care for your pet can be a long and worrisome exercise...now it doesn't have to be. Sarah should be your go-to pet sitter - she is great with dogs and is very understanding about special needs. She and her sweet dog Quinn provide a wonderful environment for your dog. You will be able to rest easy knowing your best bud is well taken care of and happy.

Sarah was my first Dog Vacayion! First we met at a park nearby her home before scheduling anything, and then few days ago I had to go out of town unexpectedly and Sarah was free to watch my little girl for a whole week. Sarah did awesome, especially since my dog has some medication to take. Sarah sent updates, and communicates well if you need anything. Will use her again! Thanks Sarah!

Sarah is awesome! We loved leaving our dogs with her. We knew they were safe and well cared for the whole time. With lots of photo updates to let us know they adjusted well we couldn't have been happier. They seemed to enjoy themselves too because they came home happy and tired. Many thanks to Sarah, we'll book with her again very soon!

Sarah was great with my high energy sometimes needy Pup Stella. She sent frequent photo updates, and administered both topical and oral medications. It was clear the Stella had an absolute blast :)
Sarah was great to Mia. She stayed 2 weeks with her. We received pictures and videos often and Mia had a great time playing with her dog Quinn who is also very sweet. The house has a huge backyard were they were able to play all day long. Sarah treated Mia as she was her own and that's what made it so easy for us. She was very responsive to all our messages and pick up/drop off was very easy as well. I would definitely recommend Sarah if you want to be worry free and know that your pet will be under great care. Thank you Sarah :)

Awesome experience! Thanks for watching my girl! I am very picky when it comes to pet care, and I felt immediately comfortable with Sarah. She asked all the right questions and my dog Farrah loved her instantly! Farrah had tons of fun playing with Quinn in the big fenced backyard. I highly recommend Sarah and will absolutely be using her in the future!
