I live in a 3 story house with multiple decks, a front yard, and a back yard. There is a dog door through an exterior wall that leads to a fully secure deck and dog run (concrete walls and wire mesh). Dogs will have the run of the house throughout the day and can go outside whenever desired. I will also take them out to play and walk. For dogs that are relatively quiet and social, I can take them with me to work as we are dog friendly. During the summer, dogs that like the water can enjoy the lake when I'm with them. The house is on the border between Leschi and Mount Baker, so there are plenty of parks, grass areas, public water access, and other dog amenities. Dogs are welcome to be on most of the furniture and in my bed.
About this sitter:
I'm a single professional who loves dogs. I'm currently owned by a four pound Pom, but I've had multiple throughout my life (and love dogs of all sizes).
I've had dogs most of my life. I love dogs of all sizes.
Is your dog appropriately gentle with small dogs? Does your dog have any behavioral issues I need to be aware of? What are his feeding habits?
Yes. I've had to do this for several dogs I've cared for.
There are two yards. One yard is fully secure (concrete and wiremesh); the other is open to the lake, but I only take dogs out there when I am with them.
Many dogs I care for choose to sleep in my bed. However, if you (or your dog) prefer another alternative, that's fine as well.
