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.

My buddy had a great time staying with Emily, I could tell he wasnt stressed out at all when I came home!
Emily was wonderful! She welcomed having my dog (Jordy) and me visit before making the reservation so that I could get comfortable leaving my pup in her care. Emily is clearly a dog person and listened carefully to his care instructions. Emily kept me updated with pictures throughout my trip to keep me feeling comfortable. When I picked up Jordy, he was happy to see me but went back to snuggle a goodbye to Emily. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to have Jordy stay with Emily again!
Emily was flexible with my schedule and prompt to respond to everything. Even though it was only doggie daycare, she updated me with a picture which I appreciated. My dog returned happy and sleepy, so he must have had a good time. I will definitely use her again!
Griffey loves hanging out with Emily! She always takes great care of him.
Emily took very good care of my dog, Shadow. She kept me posted every day with pictures and texts of Shadow which I really appreciated. Shadow is an older dog and needs special food because of her weak stomach. Emily was very good about making sure she fixed Shadow's meals such that she had no issues. I would definitely use Emily again!
Thanks for watching get harley
Daisy had another great stay with Emily! I never worry when I'm out of town, because I know my pup is safe and happy.
Emily is very caring and accommodating, Griffey always seems to have a good time when we leave him with her.
Great experience. Would highly recommend Emily.
Emily was awesome. It is obvious that she really cares for animals and will care for yours. Our two pups really enjoyed their stay. We will be using Emily's service next time.
As always, Emily was awesome :)
Emily did a fine job with Tucker. She was quick to respond to any message we sent and he was very relaxed and happy when we picked him up. We would definitely book with her again.
Emily was nothing than amazing!! This was my first time utilizing this service, and she eased all my concerns. Her daily pictures, feedback, as well as genuine comcern for my pooch was amazing! I highly recommend her!! Thanks again Emily!
Emily was great! She sent me lots of pictures and Daisy was happy and healthy when I arrived home from my trip!
Emily was awesome! Really professional and caring. She sent me an adorable photo over the weekend and my pup seemed really happy and healthy when I picked him up. Would definitely recommend Emily!!
Emily was great! She sent pictures every day and took excellent care of Clara. I would recommend her to anyone.
Emily was a great hostess for Oz! He was definitely more relaxed than normal when i picked him up, and i could tell he had eaten more than he usually does when i am away. Emily also helped a lot by being flexible about dropoff and pickup times, and kept me up-to-date as to how he was doing.
Emily is absolutely amazing and she was able to help me out at the very last minute during a family emergency Zeus and I will definitely contact her again!
As always Emily continues to be a great second home to our pup. Thank you so much for taking such good care of her. Emily is communicative with us and gentle with our dog. It's obvious that our lab sees Emily as part of her pack. We highly recommend her service!
Emily was amazing! She was so accommodating at short notice and she was super great with our high maintenance dog. Excellent experience overall. Would definitely recommend Emily.
Emily was amazing! She took such good care of Riley and was so considerate of all her needs! Riley can't wait to come back for a visit!!
When we were setting up Griffin's vacay, Emily always replied promptly and was extremely welcoming when I came to meet her the first time. She showed me the nearby park where she'd take Griffin for walks and was very patient with Griffin's nervousness around the doors and elevators of her building.

While I was away, she sent me updates and pictures pretty much every day, which I really appreciate because that makes it easier not to worry.

In short, Emily was an excellent host, and I would definitely use her again.
Emily was a wonderful host! She met up with us beforehand for a meet-n-greet and was very prompt in all of her communication. She even sent a photo of our dog while she was under her care and provided updates on her behavior/activities. I would definitely recommend Emily as a dog sitter!
This is our second time having Emily watch our dog and she did great! It says something about Emily when our dog was eager to get in Emily's door when we showed up to drop her off. Emily does a great job of keeping us informed with photos and texts and we definitely will be back the next time we go out of town and can't take our canine companion with us! Thanks, Emily, for being our go to dogsitter!
Emily did a wonderful job with our dog this past weekend. Our dog responded immediately to Emily's calm and warm demeanor and seemed very comfortable in her home. Emily was also incredibly considerate texting us with photos of Zeytin, showing how she settled in and how things were going on Sunday. The open line of communication was great as I knew that if something she would no problem contacting me.

Great job Emily and we will definitely have you watch our dog next time we go out of town. Two paws up!
