Allison is the ultimate professional as a dog/house sitter. She takes care of our dogs our house and all other concerns while we are away. We were away for 2 1/2 weeks during this time and never worried once.

She did great keeping our shy kitty and squawky bird healthy and happy while we were gone for two weeks. Very nice person, won’t hesitate to call her again if we need.

Experienced care that comes to you

I have both professional and personal experience with a variety of animals, from dogs to donkeys, cats to chickens. As a graduate student at Virginia Tech, I have a uniquely flexible schedule that allows me to take the best care of your animals. In addition to dogs and cats, I have experience with horses, goats and other farm animals. I've been pet sitting, house sitting and farm sitting for years but have also worked as ...

What Allison would like to know about your dog

I appreciate all information that can be given to me. The more that I know, the better job that I can do taking care of your animal! I request that all owners provide me with any medications that need to be taken, vices, fears and quirks. I have no breed preferences and am used to working with rescue and fearful dogs. I'm willing to work with most animals as long as you are upfront regarding their personalities and possible quirks.

If you are new client, I require a Meet and Greet. This ensures that your animal will be comfortable with me and I will be able to provide the best care possible while you are gone. I also highly recommend that you create a "care-sheet" that outlines vet's number, any further instructions and emergency contact information, just in case.

When Allison watches your pet

I'm willing to take dogs to dog parks, walk around in your neighborhood or take on hikes if that's what you would prefer! I want to make sure your dog is as happy as possible during my stay and whatever activity that your dog loves, I am willing to do!
