Another great visit with Candace! Ghillie enjoys her time there with Candace, her husband and their dog. I am very confident that she is getting the best care. And this week she even learned to “skate” on their small frozen backyard pond!

Candace was amazing. Candace updated me daily with pictures and videos of my dog. Candace is quick to respond to text messages concerning my dog. I will definitely have Candace watch my dog again. I highly recommend her. Thank you Candace. I rated Candace a 5/5 stars, she is an awesome dog sitter.

We treat your dog like it is our own!

We are a nearly retired couple who have owned dogs for the last 33 years. It is not convenient now to own a dog full time, but we do miss the fun and companionship of a furry friend! We live in a small child-free home with a fenced backyard, but your dog will never be left outside alone. We actually have walked all of dogs twice a day, for their exercise and ours. We would ...

What Candace would like to know about your dog

We don't have a breed preference, but we do love shih-tzus.
Things we would like to know, in order to keep your dog on a familiar schedule:
Is your dog used to being fed once a day, or do you leave the food down?
Do you allow your dog table scraps, or does this cause stomach problems?
Where would you prefer your dog to sleep?
Does your dog enjoy meeting new people? If your dog is shy, we will avoid having company during the visit.
Does your dog have a regularly scheduled play time, and what do they prefer to do: fetch? chase people around? run? chase squirrels?
Does your dog have any physical problems we should be aware of?
Does your dog have any emotional problems we should be aware of?

When Candace watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in a very pleasant, walkable community. When we owned our own dogs, the were given walks through the neighborhood twice a day.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If your dog is accustomed to sleeping with people, we will let the dog sleep with us. If the dog is trained to sleep in a dog bed, we will honor that.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your dog will be left alone at the most, 6 hours a day. Usually myself or my husband are at home, but some days our working hours overlap.
