Caitlin was accommodating and good with my girl!
Caitlin has watched our dog - Mojo - on many occasions, ranging from stopping by to let her out for a few minutes to staying at our home for up to a week to dog-sit. On each occasion, she arrived when she said she would, cleaned up after Mojo, and took excellent care of her.

What Caitlin would like to know about your dog
I prefer to meet, or speak on the phone, with owners prior to their pet's first stay with us or providing in-home services such as home visits or walking services, to discuss details.
**Our apartment is on the 2nd floor. We have 1 flight of wooden steps that lead up to our front door. Therefore please be aware your dog needs to be able to climb/go down stairs to access our home. We have no problem carrying small dogs under 25 Ibs, or going slow with the more senior companion.**
Some of the questions I may ask before boarding services are:
Is your dog house-trained? Does your dog chew/destroy items in the house? Is your dog friendly toward other dogs? Strangers? Has your dog ever bitten a person or other animal? Does your dog do well by themselves for short periods of time, or do they exhibit separation anxiety? Is your dog leash trained? Does your dog know basic commands (i.e sit, stay, etc.)? Has your dog ever tried to (or has successfully) escape the house and run away? Does your dog take any daily medications, or have any other special needs? Is your dog crate trained? Does your dog have any chronic medical conditions (heart failure, diabetes, seizure disorders, etc)?
Some questions I may ask before providing walking services are:
Is your dog leash trained? Does your dog know basic commands (i.e sit, stay, etc)? Do you use a typical collar, training collar, or chest harness? Is your dog friendly toward other dogs/animals? Is your dog friendly toward strangers? Has your dog ever bitten another animal or person? Has your dog ever backed out of their collar, or got off leash unexpectedly?
We have no breed preferences, and are experienced with handling large breed dogs as well as bully or "pitbull" breeds.
