My name is Beth, and I have been around dogs my entire life -- 39 years! :> I love dogs, and after I graduated college, I immediately adopted my first dog of 1 year of age from the Tulsa SPCA.
I have had dogs with major anxiety, dog-to-dog aggression and food possessiveness. I patiently worked with each, and each overcame those behaviors. Additionally, I volunteered with Tulsa Boxer Rescue for three years, which included fostering, and amateur dog training. No dog is too big or too small.
My dog Bruce is 8 years old, and while he will play with younger dogs, he prefers to just hang out with them. This said, he's very social, and I have yet to see him have any disagreements with any dog he meets. So, we look forward to meeting you. We prefer, though, that your dog likes other dogs. Also, as is depicted, my dog gets along with cats, but this is not a requirement of your dog, as I have no other pets in the home. Also, my own children who are almost 8 and 10, have been around dogs their whole lives, and know how to treat and be respectful of them. This said, I won't be leaving them unattended with your pet. So, as long as your dog isn't aggressive around kids, we will all have bunches of fun.
My house sits on a half acre, and I have a completely fenced-in backyard. It is chain-link, about 5 feet, so scalers and jumpers may be at risk of exploring beyond the fence.
I have a full-time job, but I may be seeking to do pet care full time soon. In the meantime, I'm most available to board and/or sit for your dog on weekends, and I could probably work something out with you individually for weekdays/nights if needed. I do have the flexibility to limit my time away from home to no later than 8 hours at a time. I'm also very good at following instructions if your dog has special medical needs, and I have no qualms in administering anything.
I like to walk, too! So, your dog will get plenty of walking exercise if you want :> My dog certainly loves them! Anything else? Please ask me. I'm pretty flexible. I will also provide references on request.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to meeting you!
