About Allison

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a working professional with a 9-5 job in the science industry. I have a cat, but she's a one pet per household kind of girl so I dogsit at the guest's home.

If you're looking for someone clean and responsible to look after your pet before&after work (weekdays) or all day/night on the weekend, please contact me. My services are dog/house sitting at the dog's home, I have 2+ years of dogvacay experience with rescues, dogs with anxiety issues, older dogs, aggressive dogs, and dogs that don't socialize well with other animals.

I can also bring in the mail, water plants, and take care of a cat or other household pets. I try to book jobs close to Silver Spring where I work, so your dog is left alone for as little time as possible during the workday.

I am well versed in giving pets pills and vitamins and am quite the food whisperer when it comes to separation anxiety. I pretty much only have two goals: happy pets and to make your home look like I was never there.

Pricing: I typically charge by the day and each additional pet is +$5/day

We had Allison come to our house from Friday to Sunday evening to look after 3 dogs, 1 cat, 2 fish! She did not find any of this daunting in any way and when we returned the house was fine and the beasts were all relaxed and happy. And the mail was collected. With two kids in college, we expect to need more help in the future and will certainly rebook with Allison.

She was the best!! Very good with our dog and very conscientious. Would definitely use again and recommend!!
Two weeks is a long time to be away so it was nice to be able to relax knowing Allison looked after everything with our dog and home. Will definitely use her again. Thanks!
I cannot say enough positive things, especially given Allison's flexibility when a medical issue delayed our return. The dogs were so happy and much less anxious than other times we've returned... And the house looked like we never left! We will use Allison every time we have to leave the dogs from now on!

Allison is fantastic. Responsible, takes excellent care of our dog. Our neighbors even comment on how wonderful she is with him when they are out walking together.
Allison was wonderful. She spent a lot of time getting to know our dog and was very respectful of his routines and our house.
Allison was amazing with my girls. Typically my dog is very anxious when I travel and I could tell she was happy and well taken care of She kept me informed of how my girls were doing, which allowed me to enjoy my vacation I will definitely hire Allison again ...

Allison was wonderful both as a dog sitter and a house sitter. Our neighbors even commented on how well she did with Tanner. A very responsible and personable young woman.
Wow - Allison was awesome! Not only was she super responsive throughout the booking process, she was also incredibly sweet and attentive to our dogs.

She stayed in our home and left it sparkling clean - you couldn't even tell someone had been there for the weekend. We have worked with other dogsitters in the past that have left our home a mess, so this was an especially welcome relief.

Also, our trip had us leaving really early in the morning and coming back very late at night -- Allison made all the coordination easy and made us feel like all our special requests were "no big deal". She also checked in with us while we were gone to let us know how things were going.

We hope to work with her again soon!

I can't be happier about the care Allison took of our pooch while we were out of town. She is a very responsible person and a great dog sitter.
Allison does a wonderful job with Bucky! I am so pleased to have found her and will continue to use her.
Allison is awesome. Our babies didn't even miss us! They normally don't take to strangers right away, but it appears they made instant friends with her. We are so happy to have found Allison and we are looking forward to using her in the future. She is very professional and friendly, someone I know you will be comfortable trusting the care of your babies with. Simply the best! Thank you so very much Allison.

Allison was fabulous! She took excellent care of my dog, Bucky. He adores her and I look forward to her coming back several more times in the upcoming months. I would highly recommend her! Sheryl
Allison took excellent care of our older, sometimes crotchety terrier. She was very conscientious and responsive. She texted photos and observations just to make sure that her behavior was normal (e.g.random barking and not wanting to walk). Allison is a nice, lovely person who clearly likes caring for dogs. We would hire her again.

Allison watched our dog Leo for a long weekend and it was a great experience. She was completely flexible with our departure/arrival times and sent us a photo update during our vacation. Our house looked exactly as we had left it. Bonus: She even fed our fish. I will be using Allison again for our next vacation.

Allison watched my two pups over the weekend. She was very prompt and flexible with the first meeting/ walk schedules. She was very attentive with the pups and I certainly recommend her!
