I am an avid animal lover. I've spent 7 years walking dogs part time - solo, multiple (up to 4), play dates at parks, runs and leisure walks. I also spent 2 years working part time for a pet sitting company locally, helping pet owners with feedings, mid-day potty breaks, diaper changes (as needed), etc. I have experience with dogs who have fear aggression, severe separation anxiety & other specific needs.
I have a cat, but she is afraid of almost everything so she tends to hide. I can take extra precautions to seclude her if needed.
Please know that when you leave your pets with me I will treat them like they are my own. I will always make sure that they are safe, loved, and get lots of exercise.
Additionally, I know that every dog has a different personality and different rules at home so I will do my best to maintain and reinforce any ongoing training regiments that you have.
Some notes about my policies, services, and rates:
All dogs must be vaccinated (please be prepared to show proof of vaccination) and house-broken.
I cannot accept any dog that is known to be aggressive or experience a high level of anxiety around other dogs.
If your dog has never stayed with me before and your requested stay duration is longer than 5 days, I require an overnight trial. This helps to ensure that my place is a good fit for your pet and that your dog will transition smoothly.
Please include preferred pick-up and drop-off times at the time of request to ensure accurate pricing.
If your dog is crate-trained, you can bring your own when you drop your dog off.
I'm happy to help! Please send me any questions.
