This is not our first stay with Alan. Our dog Bane was crying once he realized where we were to drop him off for the weekend. I was sad he didn't want to say goodbye to me, but happy he was excited to see Alan and Messi! Alan took great care of Bane- they went t the park, on walks and Alan made sure he ate. I am confident in Alan's care of my dog ...

What Alan would like to know about your dog

I prefer small to medium sized dogs (25lbs) but I can handle larger dogs as well since my own pooch is considered a large dog but I just don't see it. All dogs must be neutered or spayed.

Dog's in my care should have their vaccinations up to date and should be house trained (unless if it's a puppy).

Please inform me of any behavioral issues such as separation anxiety so that I may be better prepare in handling your dog.

When Alan watches your pet

I am a very active person and I make sure that dogs in my care are active and stay active. Walks, runs, playtime and neighborhood dog socializing, are the things I like to do with my dog and the dogs in my care.

Long walks, 2 miles/1hr+, are my preference and I usually walk around my neighborhood but love going to the nearby parks and beaches for that extra stretch. I monitor all walks with whistle a dog activity monitor that way my clients know just how active their dog was in my care.

I have also been going to Martial Arfs, a dog obedience and gym class, where my pooch is put through some very interesting dog exercises. These exercises are great and really provide a thorough work out for the dog. I purchased some of the equipment for the exercises and have been trying them out on dogs in my care, they love it.

After a thorough active time, I usually like to relax by watching some tv with the dogs on my bed.

During the summer, I have a pool and if the dog likes it then it's pool time!

Guest dogs are free to sleep with me or in a guest room. So far all guest dogs have been sleeping with me on my dog's bed.

I prefer to take advantage of my environment, so if you live near a park or beach then I will spend my time there with your dog. This provides a great bonding opportunity with your dog and I love exploring new neighborhoods.

If you allow me to travel then I would take your dog to any nearby park or petstore, my doggie guests love it when we go to a petstore. They especially love it when I take them to Shake & Shack for a poochini parfait.

In the actual home, I like to keep it calm and limit any playtime to avoid causing any damage to the home. I would mostly be petting and giving lots of love to the dog so he or she can relax.
