Alison did a great job babysitting our pups for us while we were away for 10 days and even went above and beyond and took one of our dogs to the vet for us. She was very communicative and left the house in perfect order. Carrie and CJ really enjoyed her stay! :)

Alison was a great sitter for our two dogs! This was the second visit we’ve booked Alison for and Carrie and CJ are looking forward to her staying for a week in a few months! She’s very timely, courteous, and kept the house tidy. Thanks Alison!

Grad student misses owning dogs!

I had been pet sitting for friends for years before I knew it could be an actual job, complete with texting regular photo updates. :)

I'm comfortable with dogs large and small, and any breed - I don't believe in 'naturally aggressive' dog breeds, only lack of training and care. I grew up with a German Shepherd and a Golden Retriever, and my most recent pet sitting experience before joining Rover was with active Scottish terriers, a ...

What Alison would like to know about your dog

Before dog sitting I would like to know the same information as if I were baby sitting - what's the routine, any medications or allergies, favorite activities, and veterinarian/emergency contact information.

REGARDING AVAILABILITY: I work about 10-6pm Mon through Fri, and I have class at George Mason University on Thursdays until 7:30pm. When I stay at an owner's place with their dog(s) I prefer to be there most of the day, so I can give them plenty of potty breaks and attention, or every 0-2 hours, which limits me to the weekends.

If your dog(s) can handle me being away for about 8 hours during the day (with a possible midday check-in depending on how far away your house is from where I work in Herndon) and only there for them in the mornings, evenings, and overnight, please contact me as I'm usually available the entire week or longer.
