Candace is a SUPER wonderful sitter! My girl had an accident on the meet and greet and she still accepted her! Candace made adjustments in her schedule to be sure my baby girl was a happy guest and I am ever so grateful to her for that! Thank you!!!

Hi, I'm Candace, I'm currently a full-time student, at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. I am currently pursuing a degree in Child Development and Family Relations.

I have been caring for animals for the last five years while living in the Raleigh/Durham area. I recently ...

What Candace would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how I can make your pet feel as if my home is there home. Questions I would ask would be, Are they allowed to sleep in the bedroom or do they sleep crated? Do they have signs of when they need to potty? Any training you been working on? Are they dog friendly and most important cat friendly or indifferent. We have 2 cats that are comfortable around dogs we just need to know how comfortable your dog is around cats, and lastly how do they interact with children?

When Candace watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
During the day we will walk thru my neighborhood about 1/2 mile to 1 mile and back, I like to allow the dogs to do their business and a nice long walk usually helps

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Sleep depends on what the owners rules are If your dog is out at night then that pup can sleep in the bedroom with me either in the bed or on the floor, with the door closed, he will not be allowed to roam the house unattended. If your dog is agreeable to sleeping with another dog, same room same bed he is welcome if not we will move our dog to a different bed. If you are working on training then your pup will sleep in his crate. We do not allow dogs on furniture.

Time I'll spend with your dog
All day a day would be get up first pup goes for there walk while he's gone the other would eat and in reverse then we would spend a good amount of time out playing if your pet has a favorite toy please bring it I do provide toys as well

What you and your furr kid can expect with a stay is; we will engage in two 15-30 minute walks a day, depending on the age and activity level of your dog this can be adjusted. I will see that all feeding, meds if necessary, are given on your pets schedule. Plenty of outdoor time in our fenced in yard, during the day. Your pet can sleep as if they are home, either on a comfy bed with me, a comfy bed on the floor or in their crate. Pictures of your furr kid can be provided via email if you wish.
