Description:

I would love to care for your dogs, cats, chickens or other pets while you are out of town. I can provide dog sitting at your home, making multiple visits per day. When visiting your pet I will play with them, walk them, give them plenty of attention and time to run around. I send daily picture messages or videos and will keep you updated on how your pet is doing!

About Hattie S.:

Going out of town? Book with me last minute or in advance!!** I would love to care for your dogs, cats, chickens or other pets while you are out of town. I can provide dog sitting at your home, visiting twice a day. When visiting your pet I will play, feed, walk/run, and hang out with them. Special accommodations can be also be arranged.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

I have loved dogs since I can remember. My first dog was when I was about 3 years old and named Engine turtle after the Ninja turtles (I couldn't say Ninja). My next dogs were Spot and Speck. Spot had 3 legs and could still keep up with Speck all her life, they were amazing dogs. I then rescued 2 dogs when I was 18 that my parents fell in LOVE with and when I moved they stayed with them. I miss them dearly but when I go home they sleep in my bed :) . My boyfriend and I now have 2 dogs; a pit bull named Deuce and a little girl named Chloe. They are our kids and the best things in life ( as are all dogs)

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

I have no breed preferences, I love them ALL! I would be interested in knowing their personality, names, size, favorite toys, snacks and past time. Do they like walks? Do they get anxiety when they are alone?

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

I have my own car and will always be available in the event of an emergency.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

I am very comfortable administering medication. I had a cat with diabetes that we had to give shots to daily as well as dogs that had to take medications daily.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I will make home visits 2 times a day (unless otherwise requested, I can do more).
Each visit will include but is not limited to:
Walks around the neighborhood or to the park
Playing in the backyard
Feeding and potty breaks
Snuggle time
Getting the mail
Watering any indoor/outdoor plants
I will provide daily picture messages while you are out of town
In some cases I can also arrange play dates with my dogs providing the dog owner would like this.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

I have a backyard that is fenced, however I do own chickens so some dogs would not be able to stay the night but i can always take care of your dog at your home with multiple visits each day.

Where will my dog sleep?

My dogs sleep in our room and if your dog stays with us your dog will stay in our room as well. If you have trained your dog to sleep in a crate or prefer another arrangement that can be made.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

I will take your dog on walks at parks and around the neighborhood. This will vary depending on location of your home or if your dog is staying with me.

Hattie S.'s Experience:

I have grown up with dogs all my life and cared for many peoples dogs when they have left town. I also volunteered with Pets Forever, A CSU organization that cares for elderly peoples cats and dogs if they are not able. I am an extremely responsible dog owner and see taking care of someone else's dog as big if not a bigger responsibility that I do not take lightly. I am working on getting my pet first aid training. I can also care for other animals in the home such as cats, birds, bunnies, chickens, etc. I have had them all and currently have chickens and dogs. I will also provide a daily picture message while you are out of town so that you can have piece of mind while away from home. I will also provide temporary tags for your dog while they are in my care so that I can always be contacted. I can also take care of your house plants, I have several of my own including vegetable gardens, flowers and indoor plants.
***book now for summer! I will be here so you can go on vacation knowing your dog or other animal will be safe at home in my care!!

Great, as always!
Hattie is wonderful! We have had her watch our dog a couple times and she is great! We feel very comfortable leaving our pup in her care :-)
We all love Hattie! She does such a nice job keeping our pups happy while we are away. Thank you!

First time using a dog sitter in lieu of kennel and I am very pleased! Hattie was great to work with and my 2 dogs were in great spirits upon my return. This was a 10 day trip and Hattie even asked in advanced if she could take them to her house for Christmas day. I would highly recommend her to friends!

Haittie's service helped us out tremendously. It was great to have her swing over before our trip to acquaint herself with Hurley and vice versa. Her communication prior to our trip and during out vacation was great, making sure everything was covered to reassure that things were going well. We'll definitely give Haittie a call next time we need someone to watch Hurley. Thanks.

Testimonials

Savanna G. September 21
Hattie has a strong passion for animals. She has two amazing dogs of her own that she goes above and beyond for. She's helped me out with my two dogs and has done a wonderful job, and they can be a handful. I would definitely recommend Hattie for all your dog care needs. Give her a try, you won't regret it!
Spring W. September 21
I have never known anyone to love dogs as much as Hattie! She is a wonderful sister and person, and will care for your pups as if they are her own. My boxer, Foxxy, loves to visit her aunt Hattie and her cousins Deuce and Chloe! There is no better dog sitter than 4 Paws Up!
Paul P. September 21
Hattie is the best dog sitter we have ever heard of! Having her around is way better than sending our pups to the kennel. I swear that our dogs like her more than my wife and I. We recently went on a one week vacation to Nebraska and asked Hattie to check and exercise our dogs and let us know if all was well; she was very attentive, listened to special request, and communicated back and forth with us when necessary. Thanks Hattie! (Collapse)
Sally S. September 21
Hattie is an animal lover. She has had pets since she was a little girl and takes the responsibility of pet ownership seriously. Your pets will get all of the love and attention they need while you are gone!
Allison B. September 22
Hattie is the sweetest cutest woman you'll ever meet. She is giving and loving and is honestly just in love with animals. I call her house 'The Farm' because she has 2 dogs, 3 chickens, and the squirrels can't keep away! I would absolutely trust her with the care of any dog or cat or bird or fish or bunny or potbelly pig! She's extremely knowledgeable about the nutrition and health of animals, plus she just has that way with them. You know, like the horse whisperer... except with everything that breathes. Do yourself the favor of considering Hattie for your next dog-sitting experience and you won't regret it. You'll also make a really nice new friend in the Fort Collins area. Sincerely, Allison Burford Dog Owner Friend of Hattie :) (Collapse)
Tasha C. September 26
As long as I've known Hattie(which is a loooong time) she's been a pet owner and caregiver. She has rescued all of her dogs and provided them with a loving home. She is not just a dog lover but an animal lover! I can say whole heartedly that when it comes to caring for animals there is no one better than Hattie to help you out. She will definitely love and care for your pet(s) just as though it were her own. (Collapse)
