I'm a huge animal lover, especially dogs. I have an eight year old lab/pit mix named Layla who I rescued five years ago; she is spoiled and loved to pieces. Layla is very friendly and playful with dogs of all sizes and kids. Layla is an inside dog (she sleeps on my bed when ever she wants), but has free range in the back yard when I'm home. If you choose me to look after your dog they will be treated as part of the family with lots of love, playtime, and daily walks. I also send daily pictures of your pup to let you know how they are doing. I'm currently at home full-time and will be with your pup all day, unless of course I need to step out to run an errand. If so, I'm typically never gone longer than one hour or two. My only requirements are that your dog is current on their vaccinations/flea medication, doesn't have fleas, and is potty trained (unless they are a puppy).
About this sitter:
I enjoy spending time with my dog; going on hikes, walks, beaches, camping, and dog parks. I take Layla everywhere possible, including dog friendly restaurants and car rides. When I'm not with Layla I enjoy traveling, roadtrips, festivals, concerts, sporting events, snowboarding, relaxing, theater, movies, comedy clubs, and wine tasting.
Why I love dog sitting:
I have been a dog/animal lover all my life. I grew up with many animals, such as dogs, cats, horses, birds, chinchilla, and turtles. My mom always took in stray and/or injured animals and nursed them back to health. Some we kept, others were found loving homes.
About my yard:
Backyard is fully gated, with concrete and pool.
UPDATE: We have decided to get rid of our pool. It is still intact but the water has been drained. I do have a separate area in the backyard that is sectioned off from the pool that dogs can play in.
