My husband and I are dog lovers and we would enjoy taking care of your pet while you are away! We both grew up with rescue dogs in our home. We hate leaving town not knowing who will be caring for our dogs. We realize that most dog owners feel this way, which is why we have decided to start dog sitting ourselves. It is so important that your dog receive the same care you provide in your own home while you are away. We have two dogs of our own so we only ask that the dogs we are watching be friendly towards other dogs. Coco is our oldest, he is a Bichon and he is sweet as can be! Our youngest is Caylee who is a Maltese with a little bit of a diva attitude. She is incredibly sweet but very sassy which is always entertaining!
We do live in a 3 story town home so it is perfect for blocking off areas of the home. However, for senior dogs it can be a little bit of an issue if they don't go up and down stairs easily. The main living area is laminate so it is very durable and easy to clean. We have carpet upstairs where the bedrooms are. When we leave, we do crate our dogs, so if you require your pet to be crated then we would ask that you bring that with you. Otherwise, we do have baby gates to barricade your pet in the kitchen area while we are out of the house.
Our goal is to make your pet feel right at home! They are welcome to sit on the couch, cuddle in the blankets and sleep in the beds, if that is what they wish to do. We have a fenced in yard area that they are welcome to go in and out as they please. Our dogs go in and out all day long. They like to lay on the back deck most of the time. If we are available to watch your pet then we will be home at all times Friday-Sunday. If we are watching your pet during the week days, we do have to leave for normal working hours. This would require that your dog be left alone for several hours at a time, so we would want to ensure that you and your dog are okay with that. We are just two blocks from the beach so you can bet that walks on the beach will be part of your dog’s stay with us.
We are comfortable administering medications that your dog might require. We do ask that your pet be potty trained. If you have specific care instructions then please leave a list and we will ensure we adhere to your requests. We are both very easy to get a hold of and will send lots of updates and pictures!
We cannot wait to meet you and watch your pet!
