I know what it's like trying to find someone trustworthy of caring for your fur-babies while you're away. I'm someone you can trust your baby(ies) will love.
I live in a multi-level townhouse, so please advise if your pup has any trouble up and down stairs. Getting their nails trimmed prior to the stay is recommended for their comfort as I've got a lot of laminate and tile flooring. Also at this house are my 3lb senior chihuahua and my lazy 5lb senior cat. Sometimes, two 9yo cats are here too, so let me know if your baby would have an issue.
I have a dog bed here, but it might bring your dog some comfort to have a bed of their own brought over during their stay. Other items to bring are: food, poop bags (biodegradable is better for the environment!), favorite toy(s), leash(es), and treats.
For some dogs that tend not to eat when they're away from their home, bringing over some canned wet food is recommended as it entices dogs to eat their food. I will mix a bit of the wet food into the dry. Aside from small reward treats, I highly recommend the beef knee caps, available at any major pet supply retailer. These help keep your pup's teeth clean, but isn't terrible on their stomachs like rawhide. I've compiled a collection of some recommendations I've found useful: bit.ly/aubreyspets. As I test out more items, I will add to the list.
Multiple dogs from the same family and long stays are no problem with me at all!
Though I can take up to three dogs at one time, DV.com will mark my calendar as still having an open spot up until the three dog limit is met. I don't think that's fair to you or your pup... Your pup will already be in an unfamiliar home; the added stress of a stranger dog is unnecessary on him/her. When a booking is made, I will mark myself as unavailable on this site. I update the calendar regularly.
Please advise of any dietary restrictions, injuries, behaviors of the dog (anxiety, shyness, high energy, aggression toward other dogs/people/cats, etc), special commands, on the couch okay or not okay, etc.
I like to update pet parents with photos through the app. Because, let's face it, your pup WILL do something incredibly cute and you shouldn't miss it!
