Arleen did great with my girls, I have two medium to large Labs, one who still is basically a puppy, and Arleen was great with them, even teaching Tillie a trick.
Arleen has watched our 2 young pups (1 and 2 years old) twice now, each time for about a week. She did a wonderful job. We got tons of pictures and updates, which allowed us to completely enjoy our vacation and not worry about the dogs. Our pups were happy and relaxed when we came home both times.

What Arleen would like to know about your dog
I need to know a little of their history...are they a rescue, have they been with you their entire life etc. Rescues tend to need a slower and more moderated approach.

That helps me to know how to approach the dog, and also lets me know what types of situations to avoid when he or she is with me.
