Althea is so great— always follows through and is wonderful with both our dog and our cat. She’s given the cat medicine, walks the dog, feeds them, etc.— but, most of all, they are totally comfortable with her and feel well loved!

Althea took great care of our very old cat while we were out of town through daily drop in visits, including giving her her medicine and sending a daily picture. Althea is super nice, very reliable, and clearly loves the animals. We’re hoping she’s available for drop in visits and walks for our dog (a husky) when we’re out for long days— she met him as well, and they clearly hit it off!

Althea took good care of Toussaint while I was away. She was willing to learn all that goes into taking care of a handicapped dog. I would definitely use her in the future.

A few winters ago, I lived ...

What Althea would like to know about your dog

Is the dog friendly with other dogs? Is the dog friendly with other people? How is the dog in the car? Does the dog have any medical or physical injuries that I should know about (i.e. sprained ankle, bad hip, poor eyesight)? What is the dogs general endurance?

Senior Dog Experience

I love going hiking and for walks on trails, and nothing makes being out in nature better than sharing the experience with a canine friend! As long as it is okay with the owner, and time permits, I would be delighted to take any dog that I am walking to nearby trails in Amherst and surrounding towns. I also enjoy simply playing outside in the back yard, or even just sitting and relaxing outside.
