Peace of mind while you travel!

Hello my name is Anthony and I am a full-time pet sitter living in Coconut Grove, FL. My aim is to create a fun, safe environment in which dogs can play, learn, and interact with other dogs and people.

My pet care services are based on the philosophy that dogs' feelings of happiness stem from a deep need for human companionship, socialization with other dogs, discipline, and above all, lots of play! This is why ...

What Anthony would like to know about your dog

When I meet a new client and their dog, there are some questions I like to ask before the stay. I believe that having a thorough conversation about your pet's history, behavior, temperament, level of socialization, and individual quirks, will ensure that I am a great match for you and your dog. All of the questions I ask at a meet-and-greet are aimed at giving me the best, overall picture of your pet's personality, and will provide me with the information I need to provide top quality care and a worry-free visit. Also, in my house, all breeds are welcomed. Whether you have a teacup Yorkie, or an oversized Great Dane that thinks they are a lap dog, all doggie visitors will feel at home!

Some typical questions I will ask at a meet-and-greet are:
-How long have you had your pet? Please give me a brief history of your relationship together.
-Does your pet have any medical issues or special care instructions?
-How often does your pet interact with other dogs? Please describe those interactions.
-Does your pet pull on the leash? Do they lunge at other pedestrians during walks, or try to chase after cats, cars, squirrels, etc.?
-What are your pet's favorite games to play/treats to eat?
-Would you like me to work on obedience training with your pet while you are away?

The meet-and-greet is a great time to discuss your dog's care and address any of your concerns, so please come prepared with any questions you might have for me!

When Anthony watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks-
I live in a quiet neighborhood in north Coconut Grove, the perfect place for dog walks with plenty of shade and limited traffic. Walks can be done at the distance that best suits your pet's needs - ranging from a short 5 to 10 minute bathroom break to an hour long extended walk or run. With your permission, I will walk to a nearby field with a great view of Biscayne Bay (a 3/4 mile walk from my house). My pets love this daily routine and I feel it's a great way to drain some energy, practice leash walking, and integrate new doggie friends into the pack. Dogs are well-supervised and hydrated during all outings.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement-
Many clients' dogs sleep in my bedroom with my dogs and I. Based on your preference your dog will sleep in the master bedroom or in the large, indoor air-conditioned Florida room, which I have converted into a doggie den! Overnight crating is also available at the owner's request.

Time I'll spend with your dog-
Given my commitment to your dog's well-being, I plan to spend all day caring for your pet. Because in-home pet care is my full time job, your dog will not be left alone for an extended period of time. Instead, dogs will participate in fun walks, play and training sessions, and pack naps indoors to escape from Miami's heat.
