Betty is very sweet and our pups really enjoyed their stay. She was professional in meeting us at a dog park prior to see how our pups would get along with hers. She kept things organized in her home and gave our pups ample playtime. I'd definitely recommend her!

Sitter/Walker in Carter-Riverside!

I am a top-rated and attentive pet sitter who works from home with two dogs who love company! I am available for last-minute requests. Please check out my reviews.

RETURNING CLIENTS: I have been on a sitting hiatus and recently have re-opened my home to host your furbabies. I am now only taking one booking at a time but we love to see our clients again -- please contact me even if my calendar shows unavailable ...

What Betty would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences, in my eyes all dogs are created equal.

I need to know about any special needs your dog has, from dietary restrictions to behavioral concerns--I am very accommodating and will do my best to make the transition from your house to mine as seamless as possible and would like your help in understanding how best to do that for your dog.

Please include the following in your care instructions and/or inquiry:
- Food or environmental allergies
- Toy or treat restrictions
- Any history of destructive behavior
- Any history of reactivity (such as barking/lunging on leash, guarding food or toys, or uncontrollable excitement) towards other animals or humans
- Any history of separation anxiety
- Any other special needs, likes or dislikes that I should be aware of

Finally, I do require that adult dogs staying here be house trained. That said, I understand that in a new place accidents can happen and I can certainly accommodate an established potty schedule for younger, older, or medically needy dogs.

In the case of emergency, I would like to have your veterinarian's information on hand.

When Betty watches your pet

OUR HOME:

We are a smoke-free drug-free environment. Our house was built in 1945 and very cozy! Our backyard is fenced off with three sides of 6 foot fence, but one side is the patio and the barrier there is about 36" tall and pups are never left outside unsupervised.

ABOUT OUR AREA:
Our neighborhood has a lot of shady sidewalks and nearby parks that your pup can go to. Just down the block is a fenced-in playground that I take my dogs to play fetch. We are very close to Ft. Woof Dog Park, which also has several miles of trails. Also next door to us is the Trinity Trail system, with dozens of paved trails perfect for walking, running or biking.

PLAY TIME
My preferred method of exercise is to walk or bike with my dogs, and if your dog loves walks, they'll definitely join in on the daily "pack walk"!
If your pup stays at home with us, they can people-watch out in our patio or cool off in a kiddie pool.
Depending on your pup, we can play tug, fetch, with a flirt pole. They can play with our dogs. While both pups go with the flow of our guests, Storm loves to wrestle and play chase but Harper prefers more gentle play. Your dog can pick who to play with!

If they just want to nap all day, that's fine too. We have a quiet pup room outfitted with beds and a relaxing pheromone diffuser and beds scattered throughout the house with plenty of window views for people or bird watching.
