Abby has watched my 4 year old Great Dane, Albia. I don't think Albia wanted to come home! Everything was taken care of and she was much loved. I even got a few pictures while I was away and that made me feel good knowing Albia was getting along alright. I recommend Abby to anyone that is in need of a dog sitter.

Lifelong dog owner seeking side gig

I have always loved dogs. I grew up always having two at a time. My childhood dogs were two yellow labs, a mother and a daughter. As a child, I was in charge of feeding, watering, and walking them, as well as the glorious job of picking up poop. My family now has a senior labradoodle and a puppy (read: 120-pound one-year-old) pyradoodle, which, although I no longer live at home, I watch on occasion ...

What Abby would like to know about your dog

No breed preference. I have had mid- to large-sized dogs all my life, but do fine with any size.

When Abby watches your pet

If your dogs are OK in cars and with other animals, I can take them to my parents acreage to run around in a fully fenced area and play with their two dogs. I also have been to several dog parks around the Des Moines area, but do not have a membership of my own. I regularly walk my coworker's great dane around neighborhoods and parks, so I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes, so long as they are trained appropriately for walking.
