I have extensive experience working with dogs of all shapes and sizes in professional kennels, and have fostered dogs in my current apartment, including a Great Dane mix and other large dogs. Dogs are my passion and it shows. I volunteer with the Maxfund Shelter (a no-kill shelter, hooray!) in Denver and often care for dogs who live in my apartment building. My apartment is cozy, clean, and your dog will get frequent trips outside (I'll even take him/her on my morning jogs or on trips to the local dog park if you so desire!), and plenty of loving. I'll care for your pup just like it was my own! -Jess.
I'm a freelance writer and comic artist located in the heart of Capitol Hill in downtown Denver. I'm a runner, avid backpacker and hiker, and you'll find me outside any chance I can get!
Just let me know whether your pup gets along with other dogs, as well as whether he/she gets along with cats, since sometimes we will encounter the occasional cat on our neighborhood walk. I also need to know about any medical problems or allergies and whether your dog will want to go with me on my morning run and to the dog park. I do live in an apartment building so if your pup barks for long periods of time when left alone or excessively barks when people pass by in the hall, we probably won't be a good fit for each other-- please let me know if this will be an issue before we book a stay.
Having had professional experience at several kennels, I am perfectly comfortable with administering medication, CPR in case of an emergency, and all minor grooming.
Since I am a freelance writer and comic artist, I am home for the entire day most days so your dog will have plenty of companionship throughout the day.
Your dog will generally sleep on his/her bed brought from home, although dogs are welcome on my bed and couch if they're allowed on furniture at home.
The pups who stay with me get taken on a 1-5 mile run every morning (depending on ability and desire), an afternoon trip to the local dog park, and 2-3 additional walks throughout the day in my beautiful Capitol Hill neighborhood-- plenty of activity to keep a dog happy!
