Alison has owned animals all her life and is especially wonderful with dogs. I have seen dogs that are very cautious of new people take to her right away. She is definitely something of a "dog whisperer."

She has taken care of my cat when I am out of town and has always done an excellent job. Your pet would be in good hands while you are away.

Let your neighbor walk your dog

My name is Alison and I am Your friendly neighbor looking for some opportunities with dog walking and sitting. I have owned dogs and cats my whole life and I get along very well with them. I live off Adams Ave in the Normal Heights neighborhood, and I am looking to find opportunities close to home. I was a professional dog walker in Brooklyn NY for a few years, and next year I will be ...

What Alison would like to know about your dog

I prefer medium to larger dogs; I am very athletic, so I can handle exercising and playing with them. I only request that I briefly meet the dog before sitting him or her, so they can get to know me and to avoid the risk of being a threat to their environment.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much as possible! If there is a certain required time that you prefer I spend with your dog, I have no problem fulfilling that. I currently own a cat, and I am completely aware of the importance of keeping him happy when me or my roommate are away. Animals have feelings just like people, and they get lonely too!

Extra house-sitting services
Absolutely! I also own many plants, and I understand the importance of keeping them healthy and watered while away.
