This was our first time leaving our dog with Alma as our regular sitter was not available. Regular texts with updates and photos made us feel at ease knowing our dog was in great hands. Her property and backyard are ideal with plenty of room for dogs to explore and play. We hope to make Alma our regular dog boarder from now on.

Alma is obviously very experienced with dogs and asked the right questions to ensure that we were a good match and that Toby would have a safe and comfortable stay. Beautiful property and setting. Toby instantly felt at home and was well cared-for. I appreciated the photo updates. We will definitely use Alma again!

When Alma watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Yes, we have excellent walks right in our neighborhood as well as hiking trails that are dog friendly and close by.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Our dog and any visitors will sleep together in a fully converted portion of our garage. It is warm, dry and carpeted.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Several hours including walks and hanging out with our family. The dog will have the company of our dog the entire time. I work from home 90% so most of the time the dogs get visits throughout the day.
