In our household your dog will be considered family. We offered a relaxed environment, several walks a day, and plenty of play.
I've always had a profound love for dogs. I usually tell people I grew up with a pack of wolves as my mom would take me to the training field with our German Shepherds on a weekly basis. At age 10 she gave me our older dog to continue her training, but when she passed I had the pleasure of working with my own first puppy (I have named my daughter after this dog). Our dogs were always considered family, and I still see the dogs around me as such.
In recent years, my husband and I have actively engaged in rescue and have fostered several dogs. Our current dog, Speedy, is a rescue. She's a 7-year-old purebred mutt (Shepherd/beagle), and she's the most gentle dog you'll find. We unfortunately had to say goodbye to our English Bulldog last year, and are not ready for a new dog yet, but we find it important that Speedy has the company of another dog around. Dog sitting is a perfect solution for us. Speedy usually goes on 2 walks a day, and alsogoes out first thing in the morning and last thing at night for a quick potty break. Dogs that stay with us will be on the same schedule.
We live in a downtown apartment, but with access to plenty of green areas as we live right next to the Washington Mall, and we also often go to various dog parks. It's 3000 sq ft. so there's plenty of room for the pups to roam around.
Besides the two of us and our dog, we also have a cat, and our 1-year old daughter. For that recent we ask that your dog is fine with cats and children.
