About Emily

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello everyone! I am currently a law student at the University of Maryland, as well as a dog lover without a dog of my own. I have a one-bedroom apartment in Ridgely's Delight that certainly has room for some visiting pups. I do take one dog at a time, but will take two dogs if they live in the same home. I live a few blocks up from a great dog park that has plenty of grass, pathways, and trees. I also have a smaller dog park within my building that has artificial grass, water, and tennis balls,
I have been a petsitter since my early teens. I mostly visited people's homes to take care of their dogs, but now I take care of overnight dog guests in my own apartment. I have also worked at a dog rescue - an experience that taught me how to care for and walk larger dogs.
My class and work schedule is very open this year. I work during the day on Mondays and Wednesdays. On the other days of the week On these days, I have class for a few hours, then come home to study, write papers, and apply for jobs. I have at least a couple hours between all of my classes to come home and walk my guests.
I'm also an incredibly convenient dog walker if you live in the Ridgely's Delight area! I have already taken care of neighborhood dogs since I moved in last year, and have discovered several nice paths for dog walks.

Emily is wonderful!! We don't know anyone in this area and were very nervous about leaving our large senior dog (8 year old lab named Cooper) with someone other than a family member (only people he's stayed with before). We did a meet and greet with Emily and Cooper LOVED her! Cooper enjoyed his week with Emily - she gave him plenty of walks and lots of pets and love. She also had no problem giving him his multiple medications. Emily was also super communicative and sent us daily updates of Cooper, which we appreciated sooo much! We are SO happy that we found Emily. Thank you, Emily!!!
Emily was amazing with our dog! Our pup has some separation anxiety and Emily noted that she was nervous the first night in a new place but warmed up throughout the weekend, so I knew Emily was attentive to her needs :) I received some cute pictures of the dog doing well throughout the weekend so I could see she was comfortable there. We'll be using Emily as a sitter again in the future!
Emily is the BEST! She walks our pup daily and is always so accommodating to our hectic schedules. Because we live in the same building, I've gotten to see first-hand how much our dog loves her, and how excited he gets when we run into her.

Thank you, Emily!!
