Alison and her husband are simply the best! Mia was a little sad when we left, as she had never stayed with anyone besides family before. Alison made her feel comfortable and soon she was playing with Alison's dog and having fun. She got plenty of exercise and loved having Alison's son throw the ball for her! Alison sent us photos and updates so we never worried about her a bit. We will definitely be ...

Alison is the greatest pet sitter. She cares for our dog as if he were her own. He gets TLC as well as lots of exercise and running around time with Alison's dog in their large backyard. I know he is sorry to leave at pick-up time. We could not be happier.

We were so fortunate to find Alison on! Our dog Cardi's stay with her went so well that our dog was clearly disappointed to leave when we picked him up. She could not have been more welcoming, flexible, responsible and professional. Alison provides her own informational questionnaire to obtain thorough information about the dog. She asks many questions about all aspects of the dog's daily routine. Our dog had many long walks and ...

Does your pooch need a pal?

I would love to be that pal for your pooch! =) My husband and I live in Golden Valley with our cockapoo, Finley. We like to go for walks around the neighborhood and play fetch in the yard. Your doggie would be a welcome addition to our routine. I also work from home so I am able to love on your little companion without them having to spend too much time alone. There are no kids ...

What Alison would like to know about your dog

We have no specific breed preferences but prefer dogs who don't shed. My father in law is allergic and stays with us often. We like to minimize his discomfort.

When Alison watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live between two parks both with nice walking paths through them. Each is about a half a mile away. I like to change it up and walk through a different one every day. Sometimes I take a route that goes through both. Sometimes I go on a couple walks a day and visit each. I really like my neighborhood and like to enjoy it as often as I can. If your dog likes to run I am happy to take them with me as well. I usually run 3-4 miles a few times a week by doing a lap around the Golden Valley country club.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
In our bedroom unless they prefer to sleep elsewhere in the house.

Time I'll spend with your dog
All day every day. They might be alone for up to an hour if I need to go to the store. I have a standing engagement on Wednesday night from 7-9 and church on Sunday morning. Other than that your dog will be receiving around the clock love and affection. =)
