Abby did a great job watching Madison while we were away for a week! She was very responsive and sent plenty of updates, which we love getting. We will definitely use Abby again in the future!

Abby and Dan watched my pup Murtaugh over the weekend. They were very easy to communicated with and were great with him. Were even flexible with me picking him up when my flight was delayed. Will definitely request again.

We are a couple living in Van Ness with our beagle who would love to be your pup's best friend while you're away. Between the two of us someone is almost always home, so your dog would rarely be left alone. Our beagle is crazy for walks so any dog we watch will end up getting ample exercise. Both of us grew ...

What Abby would like to know about your dog

We'd like to know a bit about the dog's temperament, activity level and if they get along well with other dogs. We'd also be interested to know of any fears your dog has (vacuum cleaners, brooms, paper bags etc.) so we could avoid doing anything that might make your dog uncomfortable. Of course, we'd want to know if they have any special care requirements or if you have any special requests. We have no breed preferences. Please let us know if you have house rules you would like enforced, we don't want to undo any training!

When Abby watches your pet

We try to make your pup's stay with us as stress-free as possible. Because one of us is almost always home, we can keep to your usual schedule. We only take in one dog at a time so your dog will be cared for as is s/he was our own.

We allow our guest dogs to sleep wherever they are used to. If your dog sleeps in the bed, he'll sleep in the bed with us. If she sleeps in a crate, she'll sleep in a crate with us. We allow the dogs on our furniture, but will enforce any house rules you have. If you would prefer you keep your dog off the furniture, we will.

We like to stay active. Bogie and any of our guest dogs get frequent walks. We also love cuddling and playing, so your pup will get plenty of petting and attention!

Being beagle owners, we don't feed table scraps (beagles can get overweight very easily) and do not allow dog's off leash unless we're in a fully enclosed area.

Our schedules work very well for dog sitting as I work usual office hours (I leave the apartment at 9 and return by 5) and Dan works early morning (he leaves the apartment at 5 a.m. and returns at noon) so on a typical day your dog would be alone no more than 3 hours. If for any reason Dan isn't able to home during the day, I have the option of working from home so I can be there all day if need be.
