Alison was phenomenal! My wife and I were, admittedly, over-protective doggy parents going on our first long-term trip away from our dog Abby, and Alison made it a comfortable, stress-free experience. She was thorough, considerate, and kept us well-informed even despite the challenges of being in different time zones. We sincerely appreciated the professionalism and level of care Alison provided. It was certainly a five-star experience for us and for Abby.

Alison was awesome. She was super responsive and came ontime to check-in and walk our doggie Ouki. We'll definitely be using her again!

Alison did a excellent job watching our cat Huckleberry! She sent us frequent pictures and updates on him. We did not worry about him at all. We would recommend or hire Alison again in a heartbeat!

Cat-person convert. I love dogs!

My name is Alison, and I live and work in the Portland, Maine area. I was always a cat-person at home but would gush over my friend's dogs when I visited. My first time living with dogs was in college, and I ended up begging my roommates to let me take their dogs for walks, hikes, and swims and to let me teach them tricks.

What Alison would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if there are any issues I should be aware of, their daily routine at home, how they interact with other dogs, if they prefer to be on or off leash, etc.

When Alison watches your pet

We can go all over Portland, Maine and the surrounding areas! I will take your dog to its favorite kind of location, whether its to local dog parks, nature trails, beaches, or other locations. Let me know what they prefer!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
My dog has its own bedroom. Yours can share or sleep with me if it prefers human company.

Time I'll spend with your dog
If it is a weekend, I will spend all day with your dog.

If it is a weekday, I would have to leave your dog at home from 9-12 and 1-5 or bring them to a local doggy daycare.
