As an avid dog lover and owner, I know how important it is for your dog to feel relaxed and happy when you're away from home. I volunteered for 2 years at a city shelter, so I've not only seen it all, I'm comfortable with it all.
If your dog is high energy, I'll take them on a daily run to make sure they get the exercise they need. If your dog is a bit more mellow, we can stick to walks or low key exercise. Does your dog love the dog park? We'll go! Want a new friend? I'll arrange a play date! Have a favorite game? We'll play! Need training reinforcement? No problem!
Whatever your pup needs while you're gone, I'll make sure they get it. You can have the peace of mind that your dog is being well cared for and is happy and comfortable in their own home.
I grew up having dogs in my family, first a Beagle, then two yellow labs. As an adult, I've rescued three dogs and fostered two, most whom were very high energy and friendly. Through my experience I've come to understand that a happy dog is one who gets lots of exercise - which means that every dog I take care of gets exercise every day.
I have no breed preferences - I've fostered pit bulls, large mixed breeds and small mixed breeds.
I'd be happy to take care of other little things around the house while you're gone - just let me know what you need!
Your dog will get a minimum of one hour of exercise a day and at least a few hours of time together at home. My goal is make your dog's day just like it would be if you were home - let me know what they need, and I'll make it happen!
