Mochi loved her stay with Alan. She settled in easily and came home happy. Alan provided great updates and pictures. We’re looking forward to using Alan for a longer stay.

Alan is great with Mana our puppy! Ever since we’ve been having him do drop in visits Mana’s leash walking has improved greatly. He even offered to teach us how to guide Mana during our walks.

Its all about the dogs needs

Yes, I'm one of those pet lovers who drive in the winter with the rear windows half down, so dogs can hang their heads out the window! My dogs have since passed away last year so I took some time away from dog sitting and walking, but now I am fortunate to have frequent visits from a furry friend whose parent travels a lot, and I'm eager to renew relationships with all my clients! I'm ...

What Alan would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed preferences, but like to get information from the owner about their likes and dislikes, are there certain kinds of people they are uncomfortable around, are they needy if you are not in the same room, what is their eating and walking schedule, all the things that go into maintaining their normal routine. Dogs are most happy when there is no change in their routine.

When Alan watches your pet

I do not live far from Cal Anderson Park, Volunteer Park, or Interlaken Park. Depending on what activities your dog is used to, or considers a treat, I will take your lead on what we will do. I am a runner, so love to take the more active breeds for a run. For older dogs or breeds with shorter legs, we might take a more sedate pace, but always with the opportunity to stop and sniff the trees, bushes, flowers, or whatever we might encounter! Depending on the length of stay and with the parents approval, we might head off to the dog park at Mercer Island. Some dogs do well in this environment, and get the opportunity to chase frisbees, a ball, meet friends, or go in the water. Where outdoor activities might be a concern, we can still roll a ball in the house, play with toys, or engage in tug-of-war. It all depends on what you as the owner let me know your furry kid likes. The most important is to always maintain the dogs routine, being aware of their likes and dislikes, and to keep them mentally engaged so they fully enjoy their stay.
