About Sara

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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.

Sara did a wonderful job with our dog Gonzo. She was very easy to work with and took great care of our pup--sending pictures and videos and generally keeping us appraised of how things were going! When we came back to pick him up, he was happy, healthy, and clearly had enjoyed his time with Sara and Speedy. Couldn't recommend Sara (and Speedy) more highly!

Our dog Shiro had a wonderful time! We got good updates and pictures from Sara while we were away which is always nice.

Her dog got along great with ours. He really enjoyed getting in the fountains downtown with her!

Despite being a little bit away from our house we would most defiantly use Sara again as a dog sitter when we are out of town.
