Our dog had a great time staying with Abby. She loved playing with Abby’s dog. We received frequent photos, videos and updates. It was obvious she was lovingly cared for. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Abby and we will definitely request her again for our pup.

I've also regularly dog-sitted for two senior bulldogs, a boxer and a variety of other pets. I'm a frequent volunteer ...

What Abby would like to know about your dog

I require a meet and greet with all first time clients to ensure that there won't be any conflicts between the two dogs. Please bring up to date vet records with you to the meet and greet.

Please also provide information on the following:
What is your dog's experience with other dogs?
Are they ever aggressive/possessive over food, toys, people or other dogs?
Have they had any previous training?
Any unusual behaviors, quirks, or fears?
